J.,a it. Nitro per War hurl / Washington up a after strenuously rejecting charges of a secret arms agreement with the soviet Union monday morning Secretary of state Henry a. Kissinger later in the Day acknowledged the existence of a secret loophole in the pact according to congressional sources. In a three hour Senate arms control subcommittee meeting which members described As frequently acrimonious. Kissinger said the loophole was wholly unintentional that he had not known about it at first and that it was finally closed Only last Quot sen. Henry a. Jackson d-wash., reportedly accepted the explanation and said he had never intended to imply that Kissinger had made deliberate concessions to the russians the Issue Here is not 70 missiles More or less Jackson said.
