(Studio) Comment is on response to statement with regard to Sakharov.
REPORTER: Morton Dean

(DC) Reporter notes response of Soviets shows sensitivity lacking in reactions of Hitler and Stalin to international criticism. Says world protest may have saved Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and may be keeping Sakharov out of jail; notes torture still allegedly practiced in Chile, Iran, paraguay and in Uganda by President Idi Amin. Universal Declaration of Human Rights noted, with its limited ability to be applied. Need for continued protest noted.
