BrezJinev said Friday flussia is prepared "right now" to reach an accord with America on limiting and eventually ending underground nuclear tesU, His declaration came less than two weeks before Presi- dent Nixon's scheduled arrival here. Under a 1963 pact, Moscow and Washington agreed to ban nuclear weapons tests in tiie atmosphere and under the sea, but there was no provision against the explosion of nucle- ar devices underground. According to the the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission the last announced U.S. under- ground test was Feb. 27, and the last seismic: signal pre- sumed to be a Soviet under- ground test was recorded on Slay "We are ready to reach an agreement with the United States right now on the limita- tion of underground nuclear tests up to their full termina- tion according to a coordinat- ed the Soviet news agency Tass quoted Brezhnev as saying in a Kremlin speech. The declaration coincided with an announcement that Nixon will attend a North At- 1 a n t i c Treaty Organization summit in Brussels June 26, the day before he departs for Russia. It also came as Paul H. Nifze announced in Washing- ton he was quitting as a mem- ber of the U.S. nuclear arms limitation negotiating team. "Traumatic events now un- folding in our nation's capi- make a successful new SALT agreement unlikely, he said. A group of American techni- cal experts arrived in Moscow two vreexs ago for exploratory talks on enlarging the 1963 test ban treaty. It reportedly was trying to negotiate an exten- sion of the ban to cover miller- ground blasts. A main obstacle in the past to a ban on underground tests has been the refusal of the Soviet Union to allow on-site inspection. Another problem is setting a threshold for the size of an underground explosion that in- dicates it is for peaceful pur- poses and not for military re- search. Brezhnev did not indicate how a new accord m i g h t work. The Soviet leader, who is 67, looked worn and tired as he spoke. Brezhnev hailed the partial SALT agreement signed 'by tlie United States and Russia in 1972, but added, "It is necessary to move further on this path. Senior Negotiator for U. S.

Nitze quit Friday as i senior ngeofiator in the nucle- v.a'r arms limitation talks, say-- ing there was little rirospect of a strong new pact with the Russians amid the "depress- in? traumatic events" at home. Nitze, who has been the sen- ior Pentagon negotiator for five never mentioned Watergate or President Nixon by name. But his words sug- gested disenchantment with the chief executive. "Until.the office of the pre- sidency has been restored to its princinal function of up- holding the Constitution and taking care of the fair execu- tion of the laws, 'and thus be able to function effectively at home and abroad." Nitze said, see'no real prospect for reversing certain unfortunate trends in the evolving situa- tion." In a terse letter to Niwn, Nitze said thct, since his re- signation request May 28 had not been accepted, "I now feel Faisal Welcomes .JIDDA, Saudi 'Arabia (AP) Faisal welcomed Pres- ident Nixon to his oil-rich kingdom on Friday witli a warm embrace and a warning that there can be no perma- nent Arab-Israeli peace until Israel gives Jerusalem back to the Arabs.

Nixon responded that "we cannot produce an instant formula to solve all long-time problems." He pledged, how- 'ever, that the United States will continue "a positive role working toward a goal of per- manent peace." Faisal, whose country has the world's largest known oil reserves, also referred ob- liquely to the desire of the United States, Europe and Ja- pan for an uninterrupted flow of Saudi oil "Saudi Arabia ap- See NIXON, Pg. ISA, Col.'7 Auto Industry Boosts May Output WASHINGTON (AP) A revived automobile industry helped push up the nation's industrial output for the sec- ond month in a row in May, the government reported Fri- day. Federal Reserve figures showed over-all industrial pro- duction increased by four- tenths of one per cent. Tlie increase for April, originally estimated at the same level, was revised downward lo three-tenths of one per cent. The Federal Reserve's in- dustrial production index for May still stood, however, at 123.4, compared lo the high of U7.5 marked last November before the Arab oil embargo began sapping the economy. The index had been on a steady decline until April. The Federal Reserve said auto assemblies rose almost 3 per cent further in Jlay lo an annual rale of 7.7 million units, with .lime "reduction schedules indicating another increase. The Federal Reserve's latest figures helped support admin- istration predictions of an up- swing in the economy through Hie middle of the year. Oilier major gains in indus- trial production were in busi- ness equipment which rose eight-tenths of 1 per cent to a level 7 per cent above a year earlier. Most of the gain was in companies producing equip- ment for industry' The figures showed, howev- er, that output remains rela- tively flat in the companies which provide the materials used for manufacturing. Pro- duction of steel and other met- als used i ndurable goods rose in May, but the gains were offset by a decline in chemi- cal, textile and oilier indus- tries providing basic materials for nondurable goods. The rise in the index for May left it four-tenths of one per cent above a year earlier. compelled unilaterally to ter- minate my appointment effec- tive today." Nitze's action came as Nix- on was making a tour of the Middle East. House spokesman in Jidda, "Saudi Arabia, had no immediate comment. Nitze was not available lo elaborate on his action. But it obviously was a blow to the administration, coming less than two weeks before Nixon was to go to Moscow on June 27. Some' sources interpreted Nitze's resignation at this time'' as an expression .to show dis- approval in advance, should Nixon sign a new SALT agree- ment with fewer safeguards for American security than Nilze favors. Key members of Congress expressed similar concern Fri- day about Nixon's agreement to provide materials and know-how for development of an Egyptian nuclear power generalor. These critics said they feared this could open the way toward Egyptian develop- ment of nuclear weapons. Nitze is known to have, been agonizing for many weeks over whether to remain on as a senior SALT negotiator and nuclear adviser to Secretary of Defense James R. Schtesin- ger. In his statement, distributed in the Pentagon press room, Nitze said, in obvious refer- ence to the Watergate cli- mate: "Under the circumstances existing at the present time 1 see little prospect of negoti- ating measures which will en- hance movement toward objectives (of lessening arms competition while ensuring se- curity for the United "Arms control policy is inte- gral to the national security and foreign policy this na- lion and they, in turn, arc closely intertwined with do- mestic Nitze said. "In my view, it would be illusory to attempt to ignore or wish away the depressing reality of the traumatic events now unfolding in our nation's rapital and of the Implications of those evenls in the interna- tional arena." urge thai 'the Soviet Union and the United States by mutual accord show the maximum restraint in further development of llieir anna-. inents." He said if America faithfully observes principles in joint pacts and does not try to gain one-sided advantages, "it will always find in the Soviet Union an hone.rt and active partner in such important af- fairs as Ihe limitation and re-. duction of strategic arma- ments." Brezhnev's speech was Ihe last in a series of campaign talks by top Soviet leaders in preparation for this Sunday's elections to the Supreme Soviv el, the nation's parliament. Most high Soviet leaders hold Supreme Soviet seats in addi- tion to their Communist party or government posts and hav- ing their names on the ballot is tantamount to re-election. Brezhnev warned that circles in the United States and allied countries who are against detente are .j .trying .to whip up the arms race and put the responsibility for Ihis race on the Soviet Union.-., :i- "this is an obvious distor- tion of reality. Commonly known facts attest to the fact that the arms race competi- tion, creating the most danger- ous weapons of mass destruc- tion, was forced on us." Discussing his coming talks Nixon, Breztoev referred to "pessimistic estimations" in the foreign press that the summit talks wil produce no concrete results. "We think he said.
