I PI, NEW YORK TIMES TRIAL BRUSSELS (AP) - President Nixon paused Wednesday in his journey to the Moscow summit to join America’s chief European allies in the ceremonial signing of the new Atlantic Alliance declaration. The signing ceremony lasted about 15 minutes as the representatives of the alliance’s 15 members fixed their signatures in rapid succession to the document. The Dutch secretary-general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Joseph M. A. H. Luns, made a brief speech in French and English, and then the meeting adjourned for picture taking. Giscard Absent A conspicuous absentee was] France’s new president, Valery; Giscard d’Estaing. He sent Pre-) mier Jacques Chirac, and it was! the first appearance of a French premier at NATO headquarters since President de Gaulle expelled the alliance's military! headquarters from France. Luns said, “I believe by what, has been done today all our countries are stronger and more secure.” His was the only public speech, but Nixon spoke before. the signing for about 15 minutes at a closed session of the council. A diplomat who was present said the President told the leaders that he would be guided in Moscow by two principles: not to be carried away by a false sense of euphoria, and to be understanding of Soviet objectives in order to promote detente. The President stressed that the U.S. was determined to maintain its troop strength in Western Europe provided the allies make parallel contributions to joint defense. Referring to the Middle East, Nixon reportedly said the oil crisis after last October’s war had confirmed the interdependence of the allied nations.

The General Accounting Office, congress’ watchdog agency, issued its preliminary report Monday at the request of Rep. eonian (ll Ari/,.), who ordered an investigation of the research. He said the “absurd federal expenditures . . . illustrate how the public’s hard-earned tax money is being squandered in large sums by the federal bureaucracy.” eonian, who had uncovered 18 federal research programs which he called “wasteful,” had asked the GAO to confirm their existence. The GAO confirmed these spending projects in the current 1974 fiscal year: A $15,IMH) Smithsonian Institution study of lizards in Yugoslavia “to show how a more vigorous and adaptable species of lizards can gradually colonize and displace a less hardy species.” $85,000 for the Smithsonian to study impact of rural road construction in Poland. $46,089 for the National Foundation on the Arts and the Hu manities to produce a reference book titled “American Popular Beliefs and Superstitions”. $576,969 for the National Institutes of Health to conduct a study at the University of Florida’s Institute of Development of Human Resources to teach mothers how to play with their children. $5.(HH) for a Smithsonian project aimed at showing why Indian whistling ducks “have ap p a r e n 11 y survived habitat changes caused by human encroachment.” $6.(HH) for the Smithsonian to study Polish frogs in an attempt to classify separate species by enzyme and protein analysis. $35.(HH) to help the Pakistani government control the wild hoar. The .25 caliber bullet pierced William’s aorta, ripped through his intestines in seven different places and lodged in his back Dr. Michael Peter, a senior resident in surgery who helped save thc boy, told a news conference that a gunshot wound which penetrates the aorta is usually fatal. The aorta is the artery through which blood flows from the heart into the body.

The boy was rushed to the hospital about one mile away, but appeared to be dead, doctors said. They said there was no heartbeat, no pulse, no spontaneous respiration. William’s abdomen had filled with blood. Doctors stopped the blood flow, administered cardiac massage and William’s heartbeat began again.
