Lifting of US sanctions falls short, Polish party paper says

Poland's Communist Party newspaper Trybuna Ludu criticized President Reagan's easing of US sanctions against Poland last Friday as insufficient. On Sunday in Gdansk, Solidarity leader Lech Walesa called for the lifting of all US economic sanctions against Poland, saying that it ''could benefit ordinary people''; but he warned that without some measure of pluralism, the benefits would be wasted.

Last Friday, President Reagan lifted two lesser sanctions against Poland in response to the Polish government's July 21 amnesty freeing 652 political prisoners. The more important economic sanctions have not yet been lifted.
