Soviet Union more nuclear missiles than publicly announced in the first round of the strategic arms talks. Such reports, Kissinger said in a news conference, "have no merit whatsoever." In Excess The secretary was referring to assertions by Sen. Jackson (D-Wash.) that Kissinger may have negotiated some type of understanding that would allow Moscow to build submarine- based missiles in excess of the 950 allowed under the SALT I agreement signed in Moscow May 27, 1972. Jackson also indicated that such an understanding may have pledged the U. S. to main- tain a submarine missile force of its own of less than the 710 allowed by SALT I. Kissinger was questioned closely about the past nuclear arms negotiations, but he opened his news conference with a lengthy discussion of what he hopes will be ac- complished this week when he and President Nixon arrive in Moscow for another summit meeting with Soviet leaders. Three Parts The sessions will involve three parts, Kissinger said. The first will be a general review of the world situation "to identify areas of conflict and reduce them and where possible to identify areas of cooperation." The second part and the most difficult, he said, will be "the serious problem of the con- trol of the nuclear arms race." Third will be "an attempt to give a more positive structure to our relationships." This will involve possible cooperative ar- rangements in the field of eco- nomics, scientific exchanges "and other matters of mutual the secretary said. "Most Crucial" Kissinger said the summit comes at a time "when in many respects the relationship be- tween the Soviet Union and the United States is most crucial to- ward maintaining peace in the world." He pointed out that the two superpowers now "can end civi- lized life as we know it" unless something is done to keep nu- clear technology from outstrip- ping the ability of the political uments in four areas the gov- ernment's 1971 anti-trust suit against ITT, a pledge to the Nixon re-election cam- paign from milk producers, the Ellsbcrg breakin case, and al- leged use of the Internal Reve- nue Service to harass White House "enemies" or benefit friends. The subpoenas brought to eight the number the committee has issued against Nixon .since it began its inquiry into his pos- sible impeachment. The first four subpoenas, issued in April and May, sought 98 taped con- versations and produced 31 tape transcripts but no tapes. In a letter to the committee two weeks ago, Nixon said that responding to never-ending re- quests from the panel would only weaken the presidency and said he had no intention of giv- ing up further materials. v High Court Defers Nixon Evidence Bid WASHINGTON (AP) The supreme court Monday deferred action on President Nixon's re- quest for the evidence which led the Watergate grand jury to name him as an unindicted co- conspirator. The court said it will consider this question, along with other Watergate-related matters, at a hearing it has already sched- uled for July 8. The main questions to be ar- gued by attorneys at that time are: Whether the President, is en- titled to claim executive privl lege in connection with White House tapes and documents which special prosecutor Leon Jaworski seeks for the Water- gate cover-up trial. Whether the Watergate grand jury had the power to name the President as an unindicted co- conspirator. Nixon had sought access to the grand jury's evidence, and asked that it be placed before the supreme court, to buttress his claim that the grand jury exceeded its authority. In a motion filed with the court last week, the President's structure to deal with possible attorneys sought access to "all catastrophe. transcripts, tape recordings of New Vote Scheduled In Four Tama Areas presidential c o n v e r s a grand jury minutes and cxhib-; its" and other material bearing! on the grand jury's decision. j 31-4 Voles J Two of the subpoenas issued Monday were approved on votesl of 31 to 4 with Ihe opposition coming entirely from Republi- can members. The other two approved on voice votes with no audible dissent. One of the subpoenas asked for 12 tapes and copies of Nix- on's daily news summaries for a period in the winter and spring of 1972 when Richard Klein- dienst was testifying before sen- ate judiciary committee on his nomination to be attorney gen- eral. In pleading guilty recently and drawing a suspended 30-day jail sentence, Kleindienst admit- ted he did not answer some questions fully. The questions concerned whether Nixon had instructed him regarding the justice department's handling of the ITT case. He said Nixon hadj not discussed it with him. On Kleindienst Albert Jenner, Republican counsel to the committee, told reporters the material sought in subpoena concerning Klein- dienst would help determine whether Nixon was aware when he nominated Kleindienst that Kleindienst had given "mista- ken" testimony. Voting against issuance of the subpoena were Heps. Hutchin- son Wiggins (R- Lott (R-Miss.) and Latta Thirteen Republicans and 21 Democrats voted for the subpoena. The committee also voted unanimously to provide the sen- ate foreign relations committee with all the evidence it has re- ceived relating to Secretary of State Kissinger's rcle in do- mestic wiretapping. Kissinger has threatened to resign unless the senate com- mittee clears him of any sus- picion that he was involved in wiretapping associates and newsmen. Also to be decided in a series of meetings Monday, Tuesday and possibly Wednesday is in what manner James St. Clair, Nixon's courtroom lawyer, wil! be permitted to respond to the (Continued: Page 3, Col. 6.)

It said Numeiry also decided to hand over the eight guerillas to the Palestine Liberation Or- ganization to enforce the sen- tence.

Trims Jisry Latitude WASHINGTON (AP) The supreme court Monday ruled that juries do not have unlimit- ed authority to decide what is obscene in their communities. An unanimous court deter- mined that the film "Carnal Knowledge" is not obscene and overturned the conviction of a (iforgin theater operator who showed it. In a related 5-4 decision, the court ruled in a California case ithat a brochure advertising I "The Illustrated Presidential I Report on the Commission on Obscenity and Pornography" was hard-core material which can be banned under a federal mail law. Landmark Cases Justice Rehnquist, who wrote the court's opinions in both cases, said guidelines delivered in five landmark cases a year ago were not meant to give juries absolute freedom to ban movies and other materials as obscene. He recalled that the court last year "made it plain that... 'no one will be subject to prosecu- tion for the sale or exposure of obscene materials unless these materials depict or describe pat- ently offensive hard-core sex- ual conduct." The court viewed "Carnal a film which gained wide critical acclaim, and concluded that it did not "depict sexual conduct in a pat- ently offensive Rehn- quist said. "While the subject matter of the picture is, in a broader sense, sex, and there are scenes in which sexual conduct includ- ing 'ultimate sexual acts' is to be understood to be taking place, the camera does not focus on the bodies of the actors at such he continued. In the 1973 cases, the court rejected the application of a na- tional standard defining punish- able obscenity and said instead that prosecutors may move against films and other material on the basis of community stan- dards.

In the Georgia case, the court noted that its 1973 decision sug- gested that material showing or describing normal or perverted sexual intercourse, masturba- tion, and excretory functions was within the range of punish- able obscenity.

Pearson said I hoy may be the worst, of all years past, although comparisons with prior years arc not yet com- plete. "Last year there were not as many high-intensity, long- lived tornadoes as we've had this year." Pearson said. "For example, on April this year Ihe worst single tornado day so far this centu- ry, with 93 storms reported tornadoes cut pathways total- ing miles long in 14 stalos. "That compares on just a single day, remember with a pathway of miles last year for tornadoes in all hut four slalos for Iho entire year."
