    ON "MEET THE PRESS", MIKOYAN CALLED ON THIS COUNTRY TO RECONSIDER ITS POSITION ON BERLIN, AND SAID THE SOVIET PLAN FOR A FREE CITY OF WEST BERLIN WAS "SOLID AND CORRECT."
    MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, WHO WATCHED ANASTAS MIKOYAN ON NBC TELEVISION YESTERDAY HAVE A BETTER THIS MORNING OF WHAT IT MEANS TO FACE A CONFIDENT CLEVER SOVIET OFFICIAL ACROSS THE CONFERENCE TABLE.

    ASK HIM A DIRECT QUESTION.... ONE THAT SEEMINGLY MUST BE ANSWERED WITH A STRAIGHT "YES" OR "NO" AND YOU GET A COUNTER-CHARGE OR ANOTHER QUESTION OR A DECEPTIVE SMILE.

    MIKOYAN ON "MEET THE PRESS" OFFERED NO HOPE FOR THE BERLIN DEADLOCK. HE EVEN COMPLAINED THAT NOBODY IN WASHINGTON HAS COME UP WITH "CONSTRUCTIVE COUNTER PROPOSALS" TO THE SOVIET POSITION ON BERLIN. HE TOLD REPORTERS THEY FREQUENTLY "IMAGINED" THINGS ABOUT SOVIET TYRANNY. AND HE SAID THERE WAS ONE WAY OF SETTING THE BOILING CHINESE OFF-SHORE ISLANDS ISSUE.....AND THAT FOR A CAN TROOPS TO GET OUT OF THE AREA.
