LEUBSDORF (AP) Sen. Edward Brooke has urged President Nixon to postpone plans to start deployment in June of multlwarlieac! MIRVs pending upcoming arms limita- tion talks with the Soviet Union. The Massachusetts Republi- can also called for prompt Sen- ate action on his cosponsored by '13 senators- urging the President to take the lead on a U.S.-Soviet morato- rium of M1RV tcsis. Secretary the Air Force Robert C. Seamans Jr., disclos- ed Tuesday MIRV deployment will start in June with the Minuteman III land-based mis- siles. "The continued momentum toward deployment of this po- tentially destabilizing technolo- gy is highly Brooke said in a statement. "It could have the most unfortunate consequences for the impending SALT negotiations." Earlier, in an interview, he said that the announcement of the MIRV deployment date means "the genie may well be out of the bottle.." Seamans gave the date to a closed session of the Senate Armed Services Committee-. His statement was released to the public. "After a number of delays and stretchouts we will start fielding the Minuteman III in Seamans said, adding that "based on tests to date we have high confidence in this sys- tem." Previous statements said deployment would occur in late 1970. The Minuteman III, a replace- ment for the single warhead Minuteman II intercontinental ballistic missile, will carry three of the MIRV -Multiple Independently-Targeted Re-cn- Iry Its sea-based partner, the 10- warhead Poseidon, will begin to take over next January from the single warhead Polaris nu- clear submarines. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said deployment of the MIRVs will complicate the effort to reach an arms limi- tation agreement when the Stra- tegic Arms Limitation Talks re- open April 6 in Vienna. But he said he is "keeping his fingers crossed and hoping we can come to some agreement. Mansfield also said he fears "the time has passed" for Sen- ate action on Brooke's proposal calling for the United States to take the lead in seeking a mora- torium on MIRV testing. Brooke said he has made con- tinued efforts behind the scenes for action on his proposal, op- posed by the Nixon administra- tion. "I hope there is still grounds for negotiation of meaningful arms he said, add- ing "In my opinion, it does not enhance our chances for success at Vienna." The administration takes the position that MIRV deployment is necessary for national securi- ty and that it will spur the arms talks by strengthening the U.S. negotiating position. Gen. John D. Ryan, the Air Force chief of staff, said in his testimony before the Armed Services Committee that while the Soviet Union has "not yet tested a hard target MIRV, they have the technology to develop such a MIRV, and we believe they will do so." showdown consider resigning over the is- head of the Congress on Racia joined the administration as an assistant HEW secretary for ad ministration and child develop nient, including Headslart. in the civil rights movement pu on notice the Mississlpp decision was their litmus test o WASHINGTON (AP) Prcsi-i On the Mississippi Ileadstart dent Nixon has hacked his best' grants, Fanner was understood known Negro appointee in a to have made it clear he would highstakes political with Gov.
