Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev and other Soviet leaders 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 limited nuclear agreements and several other pacts to close out their third summit after seven days of talk. Amid Applause Then they smiled, shook hands and toasted one another with champagne amid applause in the Kremlin’s St. Vladimir hall.

(AP) — The sharks, silent, deadly and some 12 feet long, struck during the shipwrecked family’s 13th hour adrift in the water. The crew of a coast guard plane overhead could only watch helplessly Tuesday as (Photos on Picture Page) Edward Horne, 43, his wife, Diane, 34. and their five children battled the sea’s most feared inhabitants. One huge shark struck 10-year-old Billy Horne, tearing a gaping wound in his arm and shoulder. Another swam through the legs of Mrs. Horne. But the desperate family, kicking and slapping, warded off their attackers until the plane guided a pleasure boat to their rescue. Help, however, came too late for Billy, who bled to death, and three-year-old Edward, jr.. who died of shock and exposure. "Everybody, beware of the water,” said Horne from his hospital bed. “You do not know the sharks are there until they strike.” The Homes, their two daughters. Diana Jo, 14, and Melissa, 4, and a son, Gerald Paul, 14, were hospitalized Tuesday night for shock and exposure. Horne, a Houston, Texas, motel broker, also suffered severe lacerations on his hands and feet when his 43-foot motor yacht Princess Diana disintegrated in a freak storm Monday night about 35 miles southeast of Carabelle, Fla Thc Hornes, who left four other children in Texas, were on a leisurely cruise to the Bahamas. Despite coast guard and Weather Bureau forecasts of “beautiful weather,” Horne said the yacht was struck by a storm two hours out of port “Waves were coining clear up over the flying bridges. The waves were 12 to 15 feet over the boat. It literally ripped off the cabin. We sank in 15 minutes.” Horne sent out a distress call over his radio and equipped his family with lifejackets. They tied themselves together with a rope connected to a life ring and drifted in the Gulf of Mexico. Some 13 hours later an airplane piloted by coast guard Lt. Cmdr. Jack Arney spotted the survivors. “They were kicking, thrashing the waler, and there was a number of sharks surrounding them,” Arney said. He said there were eight to a dozen sharks in the water, “15 feet away, just lying there with their noses pointed towards the family.” “We didn’t see the sharks until the very last,” said Horne. “The shark hit my boy right as soon as the plane spotted us. Why the shark just hit him is something I will never be able to figure out as long as I live." “Somewhere, somehow, we overlooked something I think it was the weather,” Horne said. “And our babies had to pay for it,” added Mrs. Horne Horne, who had little sailing experience, had purchased the yacht last month. It was named “Phoenix”. “I don’t like the name of that,” he told a neighbor. "It sounds too ill fated. I’m going to name it after my wife.” Younger Son She is survived by her husband. 74, and a daughter, Christine King Parris. Her younger son. the Rev. A. D. King, drowned in his back yard swimming pool in 1969. Burial was to be at Southview cemetery, four miles south of Atlanta, one of the first ceme-tories started by Southern blacks after the Civil war. Her son Martin was buried there after his assassination in 1968, but his remains later were removed to a crypt next to the church.
