With a belated assist from the former KGB, the widow of Soviet dissident Andrei D. Sakharov inaugurated a library Saturday with thousands of pages of writings by him, letters to him and secret police files on him. The archive, neatly arranged in cardboard boxes on tall metal shelves in the apartment building where Sakharov lived, is the first collection of such material in one place for public examination.

Are you puzzled over why dealing with the Russians can be so bewildering and frustrating? We seem to think differently. I got a strong glimmering of why the other day. I learned from Marshall Wilson Houts that to understand the Russians, you must understand their law which greatly differs from ours. Their attitude toward law is intricately related to their attitudes toward treaties and contracts.
