The United States and Franco

defense agreement giving this
country the right to develop and"
use naval and air bases on Span-
ish soil in return for U. S. eco-

Alberto Marton Artajo also
signed economic assistance and
mutual defense agreements, the
latter spelling out the specific
conditions under which Spain

defense agreement stated it would
be in effect "for. a period of 10
years, automatically extended for
two successive periods of six years"'
unless formally terminated ' by
either party.
The pacts are classed as execu-
tive agreements and so are not

"the German voter had an opportunity to vote for the neo-nazi party
and evidently did not choose to do so."
He said even parties to the right were unable to secure any

were for the two democratic parties. the Social Democrats and the
