Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June Interpreting the News Nixon giveaway to Russia feared Woman sworn in Treasury Secretary William Simon applauds Mrs. Francine Irving Neff, of Albuquerque N.M, after he swore her in as the 35th Treasurer of the Umted States at a Washington ceremony. WASHINGTON (CP) The weight of both domestic politics and national security are rarely absent from an American president's travels abroad, but such considerations form a com- pelling backdrop for President Nixon's trip to Moscow this week. There is a suspicion among some critics of the president that his week in Moscow, like his earlier trip to the Middle East, is designed mainly to distract public attention in the United States from the unrelenting Watergate saga. Even more grave, however, is the fear that Nixon may be so anxious for a diplomatic success in Moscow, to counter his failing fortunes at home, that he will make dangerous concessions to Soviet leaders on disarmament. The fear appears to be strongest among those in the Pentagon and in Congress who have persisted in their doubts about Soviet intentions throughout the period of who at one time believed their hard-line views were shared by Richard Nixon. Senator Henry Jackson of Washington state, an influential member of the Senate armed services committee, has already raised questions about the agreement on nuclear-arms limitation that Nixon signed during his 1972 visit to Moscow. Jackson, who keeps one eye peeled for weakness in U.S. defence policy while the other watches his own chances for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1976, is said to be itching for a fight if the forthcoming Moscow talks seem to produce a U.S. "giveaway." His concern is shared by other conservative members of Congress and by the leaders of the U.S. military, including the joint chiefs of staff. They believe the Soviet Union came out ahead in the 1972 arms- limitation agreement and fear the next talks will bring more U.S. concessions Columnist Joseph Alsop, who frequently reflects the military viewpoint, has written that Nixon "badly needs the appearance of resounding success in Moscow" and may be tempted by an ongoing nuclear arms accord that "could be dangerous advantageous to the Soviets." Against such foreboding there is, by all accounts, the belief of U.S. state secretary Henry Kissinger that the U.S. must continue to press ahead with detente, seeking whatever reasonable agreements can be reached that -would lower the threshold of danger for the world. Striking a balance between the opposing views may be made more difficult for Nixon because he probably will have to count on the support of the congressional conservatives if the Watergate impeachment process goes to a vote in the Senate. The forthcoming Nixon visit to Moscow is exceptional in that it will likely feature substantive negotiations involving the president and his Soviet counterparts. Normally the way is thor- oughly paved in advance. Agreement is reached at a lower level on all the main is- sues, communiques are drafted and it remains only for the leaders to sign their accords with suitable flourish and publicity.
