Brezhnev brought their nuclear summit Saturday to the edge of this Black sea sun resort famous for its controversial World war II diplomacy. Nixon was welcomed by the biggest crowds yet of his second visit to the Soviet Union as President. People gathered in clusters to wave plastic Ameri- can and Soviet flags, wild flow- ers and clumps of greenery plucked from nearby fields. The two leaders were reported to have gone into seclusion from each other Saturday night in neighboring dachas on a sea- shore estate once owned by a Russian czar and now used by the Soviet government.

"Thougi quick, it also proved to be onl; a short step to using such illega tactics against any dissenting Americans. "The result was we almost lost America. Not lo subver- sives, terrorists or extremists ol the streets but to subversives, terrorists and extremists of the White House." The senator declared thai "the indisputable ugliness ol Watergate is of such scope as to categorize it as a sheer in- sanity."

Weicker accused White House lence involving himself and the iVatergate he said. Weicker said Article II of the lonstitution, which sets out the luties and powers of the Pres- dent, "was violated from begin- ning to end by Watergate." He cited scores of examples, ncluding the approval by Nixon of a master intelligence plan au- thorizing illegal acts such as wrglary, the creation of what ie called a "secret police" and its use by the White House to "violate the rights of American citizens" and to use the machin- ery of the federal government to intimidate the President's politi- cal enemies.

Officials said the assembly approved an earlier version of the cable that included a clause giving Fischer 90 days to make up his mind. But at the end of the session, some delegates had second thoughts and it was de- cided to omit the reference to 90 days in thc final text of the cable being sent to Fischer, the officials said.
