From United Press International
The Soviet Union yesterday closed
Poland's western border to Western
military observers and sealed parts of its
eastern frontier with Soviet troops on the
highest alert in moves recalling the 1968
Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia,
Western military reports said.
In Washington, the White House warned
that any Soviet military intervention in
Poland would have "serious and adverse"
Syria and Jordan agreed 'on terms de-
signed to ease tensions on their border.

consequences on both East-West and U.S.-
Soviet relations.
WHITE HOUSE press secretary Jody
Powell said President Carter com-
municated "in the past few days" with the
leaders of France, Germany, and Britain
and "other European allies" about the

Soviet threat to Poland.
The State Department also summoned
Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrinin, and
an administration source said U.S. in-
telligence had picked up signs of Soviet
military measures "which are not easily
explained except in terms of a possible in-
vasion of Poland."
Despite Moscow's denials, military
sources in West Berlin and London said the
Soviets shut off those parts of Poland's
East German border that had remained
open to Western military observers and.
sealed part of the eastern frontier with
Soviet troops on the highest alert status.
THERE WERE also signs Warsaw Pact
troops were engaged in maneuvers on
Poland's borders, the sources said.
Similar moves preceded the Soviet in-
vasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, but
sources cautioned against speculation a
march into Poland was "imminent."

Pentagon spokesman Maj. Gen. Jerry
Curry, said there had been no change in
the status of U.S. forces in Europe with
"no large-scale U.S. maneuvers, even
beyond the unit level" and nothing
scheduled for the next two weeks.
The reported Soviet moves would effec-
tively encircle Poland, which lies san-
dwiched between East Germany to the
west and the Soviet Union to the east.
Czechoslovakia forms its southern border.
Some Western analysts saw the reported
troop movements as part of a series of
Soviet warnings to Poland, which has
allowed a labor movement independent of
the Communist party to emerge since
mass strikes in August. In Moscow, the
Soviet Foreign Ministry issued an
unusually specific statement denying it
mobilized troops on the Polish border.
"We have investigated this question and
flatly and categorically deny the rumors,"
a Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Registration continues

No matter where they may
be going over the winter
break, men born in 1962 will be
expected to take an additional
excursion the week of January
5-to the post office to register
for the draft.
The week of registration
was scheduled months ago
when President Carter
finalized his registration plan.
While President-elect Ronald
Reagan has not said what he,
will do about the current
program, one of his transition
spokespersons said yesterday
that, Reagan will take-no.of-,
ficial position on the plan until
the Supreme Court rules on
the constitutionality of an all-
male registration. The high
court ruling is expected in the

whether to make the trek to
the post,.office, statistics from
the Selective Service show
that 96 percent of those
required to register last July
complied with the order.
Of those 19- and 20-year-olds

who failed to register last
July, none have been formally
recognized or charged, but a
spokesperson for the Selective
Service said his organization
just "hasn't finished working

tification procedure.

ruled last week that the
requirement violates the
Privacy Act of 1974, which
limits the uses of social
security numbers as a means

. However, the Selective Ser-
vice has entered an appeal to
the judge's ruling and expects
a stay from the appellate
court soon. A stay would
enable the government to
again require social security

tive Service, said their forms
