FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 4, 1974—TWENTY-EIGHT PAGES IN THREE SECTIONS Associated Prest (/PI Nixon Will Initiate Energy Plan-Dr. K SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP i —Voicing concern about the spectre of global depression, Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said Thursday that President Nixon is preparing personal initiatives to promote solution of the world energy crisis. Kissinger called the Arab oil embargo ‘increasingly less appropriate” and said Nixon’s diplomatic offensive would seek to build cooperation between oil-producing and oilconsuming nations. Kissinger didn’t give details of the actions Nixon is planning. He said Nixon would begin taking initiatives next week and that they would be announced afterward. In a Western White House news conference before he Affair Checkmated Detente, Yes! Love? PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) -Charlotte Daigle of Palo Alto. U.S.A., yearns to marry Boris Mukhametshin of Mosco w, U.S.S.R. — and therein lies the problem. “The Soviet government won’t let us,” complains Charlotte. “The United States and the Soviet Union are supposed to have detente. Well, how about us?” The Soviet government, Charlotte says, empnasized its ieelings about the romance by kicking her out of the country last spring after a tough, offi* i ial grilling during which they intimated she might be a sp> And now. she says, the Soviet Embassy has refused her a visa for another visit. Charlotte, JI, said her road to romance with Boris, also JI, is now paved with one official “nyet” after another, and though she gets discouraged she vows her labors of love will not be lost. “It doesn’t look good, but I don't intend to give up,” insisted the petite, orown-haired interviewer with toe stale employment agency. In Moscow, some 5,800 miles away. Boris also refuses to give up, writing her poems and long letters cf endeaiment every day, and sending her many of his watercolors. “Dearest Char.” he wrote recently in his good tut not perfect Englisn -I need you terribly and my love to you becomes to be rn ,re and more intense.

Char* See RUSSIANS, Pg. 12A. UL I headed back to Washington and a meeting Friday with Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, Kissinger also: —Predicted “good progress can be made” toward disengagement of Arab and Israeli forces along the Suez Canal. He spoke of an acceleration in Geneva talks this month. —Said a Nixon trip to Europe “could very well happen this spring” because headway is being made in negotiating declarations of principle with Atlantic allies. —Reported that planning* was under way for summit talks with Soviet leaders in Moscow this year and said Nixon wants to go to Japan, too. He asserted that U.S. foreign policy would be unaffected by any moves in Congress to impeach Nixon. —Cast doubt on the possibility of a Communist offensive in Vietnam, saying he and Hanoi's Le Doc Tho were continuing efforts to ‘‘ease the situation.” Kissinger ruled out “at this moment” any counterembargo against Arab nations which have cut off supplies to the United States. He would not predict when the Arab embargo might be lifted. Twice in the 45-minute news conference Kissinger volunteered mention of the threat of the energy crisis triggering a global depression, referring once to “a massive depression.” He said Nixon’s personal initiatives will spell out in greater detail a cooperative plan he sketched in a London speech last month. In London. Kissinger spoke of the need for the United States. Japan and Western European nations to unite in their search for solutions to the energy crisis. Kissinger said Nixon’* initiatives probably would take the form “of an approach to the various leaders’ concern.” Other officials predicted a series of presidential letters, messages and telephone calls but ruled out any immediate foreign travel by the President to promote energy cooperation. Responding to questions. Kissinger said tile diplomatic-offensive could involve a score of nations, including such major oil consumers as Japan and European nations as well as such oil producers av the Arab bloc. “Unless there is a systematic effort to address the problem.” Kissinger said, “there is no way one nation can solve it by itself, not even a nation as powerful as the United powerful as the United States.” PAGE ONE BY KATHARYN DUFF DON’T BE A LOSER - Set clocks ahead one hour on Jan. 6 for onorgy-savlng DAYLIGHT TIM& I Guess what sort of letter Santa got this week!

He did not recognize the voice that answered so he asked if he had reached the clinic’s number. “Yes,” said the strange voice, “I'm one of the patients.” Shelley considered this answer briefly and, evidently, so did the fellow on the other end of the line. “Oh, I mean. . .” he sputtered. “I mean I brought in a patient. . .” ' Shelly said thanks and hung up. He did not have the heart to ask the identity of the fellow who was still sputtering an explanation. * * * A kitten-on-the-keys story from Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Lewis of 1182 Glenwood. These cold nights they have been letting their “plain black cat” Boots stay inside the house. First night Boots enjoyed this unexpected comfort the Lewises were awakened by the sound of music. First thought was that a musical ghost had come to cad. Exploration showed it was Boots marching up and down the piano keyboard. Once Boots had Jerry out of bed the cat made known his wish to be let outside for a few minutes. Next night Boots repeated the performance. Now the family has come to expect it. a 3 a.m. musical signal. * * * Homer K.
