UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Nixon Signs! n 0 BRUSSELS (AP) President Nixon paused Wednesday in his journey to the Moscow summit to join America's chief Europe- an allies in the ceremonial sign- ing of the new Atlantic Alliance declaration. The signing ceremony lastec about 15 minutes as the repre- sentatives of the alliance's 15 members fixed their signatures in rapid succession to the docu mcnt. The Dutch secretary- general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Joseph M A. H. Luns, made a brief speech in French and English, and then the meeting adjourned for pic ture taking. Giscard Absent A conspicuous absentee was France's new president, Valery Giscard d'Estaing. He sent Pre- mier Jacques Chirac, and it was the first appearance of a French premier at NATO headquarters since President de Gaulle ex- pelled the alliance's military headquarters from France. Luns said, "I believe by what has been done today all our countries are stronger and more secure." His was the only public speech, but Nixon spoke before the signing for about 15 minutei at a closed session of the coun- cil. A diplomat who was present said the President told the lead- ers that he would be guided in Moscow by two principles: not to be carried away by a false sense of euphoria, and to be un- derstanding of Soviet objective, in order to promote detente. The President stressed that the U.S. was determined to maintain its troop strength in Western Europe provided the allies make parallel contribu- tions to joint defense. Referring to the Middle East, Nixon reportedly said the oil crisis after last October's war had confirmed the interdepen- dence of the allied nations. He said that during the recent peace negotiations in the Middle East the Soviet Union did not create major difficulties. Full Member Chirac told the council that France is a full member of the transatlantic alliance and "we intend to observe scrupulously the treaty of Washington" which founded NATO 25 years ago. The French published the text of the premier's speech at the private meeting, Chirac said France wanted to reinforce the alliance "and this is in no way irreconcilable with our reaffirmed will to remain (Continued: Page 3, Col. 8.)

The court's inaction in the case could mean that a decision will be delayed until next fall when the court's next term opens. May Issue A court spokesman said how- ever that the justices may issue orders and attend to other rou- tine business when they meet July 8 to hear arguments on Watergate tapes disputes. A ruling on the issue of cross- district school desegregation, one of the major cases present- ed to the court during the cur- rent term, had been expected Wednesday. The Detroit case was brought by the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored Peo- p 1 e. NAACP spokesmen de- scribed it as the organization's most important school case since the historic one in 1954 which struck down the doctrine of separate but equal schools. Michigan officials and of- ficials of 43 suburban school dis- tricts surrounding Detroit ap- pealed a decision of the U. S. circuit court in Cincinnati that the only way to desegregate De- troit city schools was to include the suburbs in the busing plan. Didn't Join Officials of the Detroit school district, which is approximately 64 percent black, did not join in the appeal. 1 WASHINGTON (AP) The Securities and Exchange Com- mission has sued the National Farmer Organization, which it "local and state actions and policies helped produce resi- dential segregation in Detroit and in the metropolitan area."
