They almost certainly expect the US to reject these demands. They may have calculated, however, that British convoys might grant minor concessions which would strengthen Moscow's bargaining position vis-a-vis the US. In any event, the USSR probably believes that disclosure of differences between US and British convoy procedures will tend to underscore the need for negotiations to remove "misunderstanding Moscow presumably intends to maintain close con- trol over these harassments in order to avoid irrep- arable damage to the detente atmosphere. The Soviet leaders, however, appear to be operating on the as- sumption that the US and Britain also have an interest in preserving this atmosphere and that this situation affords the USSR greater latitude for maneuv rs to draw the West into a new round of Berlin talk I j ~~NNI VVCaa 1 VI Il IGQJG LVVJ/VJ/ IV .

During August, armored cars equipped with tear gas had to be used for the seizure of a Capuchin novitiate in Nove Miasto. The incidents arose in the wake of nationwide closings during this year of seminaries, convents, monasteries, and the few remaining parochial schools. The regime has been attempting in this way to break the power of religious orders, which it considers the core of the church's resistance. The Polish people already are restive over price rises and the threats of winter food and fuel short- ages. Although the regime will have little trouble controlling further demonstrations, the strong reac- tion of the people on the religious issue reflects the thin veneer of the Polish o ulation's tolerance for its Communist ru 25X1 17 Oct 63 DAILY BRIEF 6 M A roved For ease pp 30016000123 25X1 j 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/03/10 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07300160001-3 Next 3 Page(s) In Document Exempt Approved For Release 2003/03/10 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07300160001-3 25X1 25X1 Yugoslavia - Latin America - Nonaligned States: Members of Tito's entourage consider that his`, recent visits to Brazil, Chile, and Bolivia were failures, They were extremely pleased by his reception in Mexico, however, apparently because of the consid- erably larger public turnout.
