Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 26, It72 THE LfTHMIDOE HERALD f Nixon puts pressure on Russia By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) Presi- dent Nixon, a long-time advo- cate of negotiations based on strength, has apparently de- cided to continue that posture in the ongoing debate with the So- viet Union about strategic arms limitations which constitute the SALT talks. His budget message to Con- gress Monday asked for J900 million so the United States can step up the pace of its research and development on an under- water long-range missile system next generation of weap- ons beyond the Polaris and Po- seidon missiles carried now in American nuclear submarines. Nixon's budget request is being generally interpreted as an attempt to put pressure on Soviet leaders to negotiate a limitation on construction of missile submarines, which con- stitute some of the costliest and least vulnerable tools in the ar- senals of the two If so, the Nixon move is a gamble. The million is not consi- dered large by Pentagon budget standards. But it represents the opening move in a program that, if carried through, could lead to expenditure of billions of dollars by the U.S. and the So- viet Union. While the U.S.S.R. has sur- passed the U.S. in the number of offensive nuclear they are said to have compared with about for the ii no acluiowl edged Soviet parity la nuclear submarines. Quite the opposite, In the view of some military ex- perts. U.S. HAS ALLIES The two countries' are re- ported to be approximately equal in numbers of missile- bearing nuclear subs, but the U.S. has several advantages. Its okayed for publication of 1978 games EDMONTON (CP) City council has authorized a expenditure to establish a non- profit organization to publicize and finance the city's applica- tion for the 1978 Commonwealth games. The organization is to be known as the Edmonton 1978 British Commonwealth Games Society. Edmonton has been selected as Canada's choice for t a e games. MOST TO U.S. Two-thirds of Canadian fish- ery exports are destined for the United States. allies, France and Britain, each deploy missile submarines. And the American navy has long years of practical experience behind it, while the Russians are comparatively new in the field. Because of the advantage that these and other factors give to the U.S., the Soviet negotiators at the SALT, talks in Vienna are reported reluctant to discuss limitations on submarine con- struction at this stage, as urged by American representatives. The risk in the Nixon pro- gram would come if the two sides {ailed to agreement on the issue in the near future. The Soviet government would then come under pressure from its military to finance a re- search program similar, to the American one, and a race into a new generation of weapon do velopment would be on. Once installed in the two na- tions' arsenals, the new' under- water weapons would be diffi- cult to disarm and their com- plexity would almost certainlv complicate negotiations which have already been going on for two years. There have been some 110 meetings of Soviet and American negotiators so far at the SALT talks. The only progress publicly an- nounced has been two minor agreements signed last replace the Moscow-Washington ''hot line" with a satellite com- munication link and to work pu methods of prompt consultatio in the event of an incident tha could lead accidentally to clear war. PUTTING ON PBESSURET Despite exceptional secrecy around the talks, published r ports in the U.S. have Include some details- about the sul stance of current negotiation The stumbling blocks now ar said to involve actual number of antiballistic missiles e a c side would be permitted maintain, and the relaticmshi between an agreement on defen sive weapons and future accor on limiting offensive arms. A Hungarian newspaper r port recently raised the possibi ity that President Nixon woii sign some kind of SALT treat during his proposed visit Moscow in May. Nixon's decision now to s funds for underwater-weapons research seems designed to In duce the Soviets to agree to lira Stations in that field before th Moscow visit. Failing that, it might give th U.S. more leverage in negotia tlons for an early agreement o underseas weaponry as a SB ond stage to any accord the tw sides can obtain before May.
