CITY FINAL 15 CENTS VOLUME 32 - NUMBER 321 CEDAR RAPIDS. IOWA. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMESFORD ASKS 4.6-BILLION Arms Pact Approval Predicted WASHINGTON (AP) — President Ford briefed congressional leaders Tuesday on his hopes for an arms accord with the Soviets and Sen. Thurmond (R-S. C.) indicated he thinks the projected agreement would win senate approval. Thurmond, a frequent critic of U. S. negotiations with the Soviet Union, said that, if a final agreement emerges that mirrors Ford’s description of it, the senate will probably vote to approve it. The senator declined to reveal the still-secret numbers involved in Ford’s Vladivostok verbal agreement with Leonid Brezhnev Sunday. But he acknowledged that, if a final agreement is worked out, each country would be limited to less than 2,500 long-range missiles and bombers. Ford said Brezhnev “is concerned about a wild arms race” and for that reason agreed tentatively on limiting weapons. “This provides adequate security for both of us,” Ford said. His remarks were relayed to reporters by Press Secretary Hon Nessen. Ford was said to have declared that the accord gives “equivalency” to the U. S. and Soviet Union, meaning they would be on an equal footing. Nessen said Ford reported the accord would require the Soviets to scale down their planned program and the U.S. would probably be able to increase its array of nuclear arms slightly. “Disturbs Me” Thurmond said there would be no on-site inspection to guarantee observance of the agreement and “that disturbs me somewhat.” However, he said Ford contended U. S. intelligence capabilities make onsite inspection unnecessary. As for the whole package, which presumably would be worked out in detail early next year by negotiators in Geneva, Thurmond said, “I still have some reservations and I probably always will until they (the Soviets) abandon their goal of world conquest.” He Raid they “don’t live up to their agreements.” Thurmond said more precise terms of the accord will be made public “in about a week.” He said Ford will not make any further public announcement on the subject until then because he does not want to do anything that “would upset the agreement.” Jackson Omitted Ford didn’t invite his severest arms control critic, Sen. Jackson <D-Wash.), to Tuesday’s briefing. The briefing was open to house and senate leaders of both parties and the ranking Democratic and Republican members of the house and senate committees on appropriations, foreign affairs and armed services. Jackson does not fit in that category, but he heads the arms control subcommittee of the senate armed services committee and has a long background on the subject. He was critical of the interim nuclear arms accord negotiated by Richard Nixon in 1972, which he said gave too much advantage to the Russians. Throw-Weight Problem Congressional sources close to Jackson charged that he was probably excluded from the Ford briefing because of his past critical role. Jackson told newsmen: “Id (Continued: Page 9, Col. 6.) \y’* Chut*I*Ie ician is a person who ;t a tax he didn’t hike.
