Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev and other Soviet lead- ers gathered at Vnukovo airport for a brief departure ceremony. Nixon and Brezhnev signed agreements limiting nuclear testing and defensive missile deployments at the conclusion of their summit meeting Wednesday but acknowledged failure to curb the offensive nuclear arms race. The two men, looking solemn, put their signatures to the limit- ed nuclear agreements and sev- eral other pacts to close out their third summit after seven days of talk.
