    Background: PARLIAMENTARY PROBLEMS AND TRADE RELATIONS BETWEEN CZECHOSLOVAKIA AND THE UNITED STATES WERE DISCUSSED BY A NINE-MAN AMERICAN PARLIAMENTARY PART AND THEIR CZECH COUNTERPARTS DURING A ONE-DAY VISIT TO PRAGUE YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). THE UNITED STATES PARTY FLEW IN FROM VIENNA, WHERE THE MEMBERS HAVE BEEN ATTENDING AN INTER-PARLIAMENTARY UNION MEETING.

    THE DELEGATION, COMPRISING FIVE SENATORS AND FOUR CONGRESSMEN, FLEW INTO PRAGUE ABOARD A UNITED STATES AIR FORCE AIRCRAFT, AFTER LAST-MINUTE PERMISSION WAS GRANTED FOR THE FLIGHT.

    DEMOCRAT SENATOR JOHN SPARKMAN, WHO REPRESENTS ALABAMA, AND IS LEADER OF THE DELEGATION, TOLD REPORTERS THAT HE HOPED THE CZECH AND SLOVAK NATIONS WOULD BE ABLE TO FOLLOW A PATH OF THEIR OWN CHOOSING.

    HE SAID THAT DURING A TWO-HOUR MEETING WITH CZECH LEGISLATIONS, THE ADVERSE EFFECTS OF AMERICAN POLICIES ON TRADE WITH CZECHOSLOVAKIA WERE DISCUSSED.

    LATER, THE PARTY VISITED PRAGUE CASTLE, BEFORE BOARDING THEIR AIRCRAFT FOR THE RETURN FLIGHT TO VIENNA.
