joint communique sum ming up their third summit conference the two also com mitted their governments to stop Communique with Brezhnev pledges 70year USUSSR nuclear weapon limitation S Senate The agreement on missile defenses which is in the form of a protocol to the 1972 treaty probably will be submit ted to Congress in the form of a resolution seeking endorse ment As part of the partial test ban Nixon and Brezhnev cameto an unwritten understanding that observers from each govern ment would be allowed to visit the others test sites to verify underground nuclear weapon compliance tests with an explosive force of If implemented it would be more than 150 kilotons and to the first time the Soviet Union rut new limits on their missile has allowed such American i ifc defense systems observers

given up the goal of approval of twoThirds of the U a permanent ban on offensive nuclear weapons But he said the third annual NixonBrezhnev summit shouldnt be seen in terms of hitting a home run on one occasion A 10year pact if it can be worked out by US and Soviet negotiatiors in Geneva would cover the realities of fore seeable weapons development and that is about as perman ent as any accord that could be arranged now Kissinger said Nixon and Brezhnev met late in the morning in advance of j the ceremonial signing of the communique The president was to leave for the United States in the afternoon With their 1972 ban on some U S cuts energy use more than 8 per cent Washington AP A White House spokesman gays conservation efforts over the past year by industry and the federal government have reduced the nations energy consumption by more than 8 per cent A statement by President Nixon issued here Tuesday as Nixon prepared to return from his Moscow trip said industry was meeting the target of a 5 per cent energy cutback which Nixon had urged a year ago Energy savings by the federal government have reached 30 per cent far ahead of the 7 per cent goal set last year according to the President Nixons statement praised the conservation leadership shown by government and industry but added that their efforts are not enough Every American must join in this cause The President said conserva tion programs by federal agen cies during1 the nine months beginning June 1973 saved the equivalent of 75 million barrels of oil He said the Commerce Department reported that private industry was saving the equivalent of 425 million barrels of oil a year offensive weapons running out in 1977 the two leaders agreed that a new treaty should be com pleted at the earliest possible date and should run until 1985 It would try to limit both newer type weapons including missiles with multiple warheads and the numbers being deployed Kissinger said the key pro blem remains how to correlate the 3tol US advantage in missiles with multiple warheads and the Soviet advantage in launchers He said he expects the Geneva negotiations to resume on Aug 1 give or take a couple of weeks The 150kiloton ceiling on underground nuclear explosions to which Nixon and Brezhnev agreedis equivalent to the ex plosive force of 150000 tons of TNT or 7 times the force of the atomic bombs the United States dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki The most powerful nuclear device so far tested had a force equivalent to 57 million tons of TNT and was exploded by the Soviet Union in 1961 Kissinger saidthe two governments had inmind a followup agreement that would permit explosions for peaceful uses above the 150kilotoi limit Such an agreement he said would call for the presence of observers at the testexplosions from the two powers but possibly from third countries The agreement on missile defense systems expands the 1972 treaty which limited the two countries to two such in stallations each

in this document attempting to speak for others or describe what participation others might have had In his earlier testimony Krogh indicated that Ehrlichmans only caution in approving the breakin was to make sure the operation would not be traced to the White House Krogh and Young agreed that the possible illegality of the en try at Dr Lewis J Fieldings Severely Hills Calif office was never raised beforehand They also were unable to recall using such explicit terms as burglary or breakin in seeking Ehrlichmans approval for the Sept 3 1971 search for Ellsbergs psychiatric records Young who
