The diplomats have finished their work, find the Soviet- American treaty lhal resulted will bring an end to the Nixon administration's planned ABM not neces- sarily to the controversy sur- rounding il. Under the agreement -ipncd Friday in Moscow, both the United States and the Soviet Union are permitted ABM around an offensive ICBM base lo protect il against surprise attack, and the other around Washing on and Mos- cow, respectively. Each site wuhi be per- mitted 100 ABM launchers. Of the two ABM sites now ac- tually under construction in the United States, the one near Ihc ICBM base a! Grand Forks. N.D.. is 85 per cent complete. The Russians already have a protective ABM shield around Moscow with M laincbers. bu; nothing around I heir ICBM fields. .MAY REITSK FL'.NDS The Russians are expected lo go ahead wiih a second site to protect some of I heir TCRMs But with skepticism in Congress over the value of the ABM sys- tem, there is considerable doubt whether the Pentagon will re- ceive funds to protect Washing- ton, D.C., with I ho secondary permissible ABM base for by the treaty. This is likely to be the subject of much tuture debate. The latest cost estimate for the planned V S. ABM program stands nl move than S16 billion. Up Lo about S5 million has actually been ap- proved, mostly for the first Luo sites, at Grand Forks and Malmstrom Air Force, Mont In addition, there is the co.-'t of the Sprint and Spartan anti- ballistic missiles themselves and the research and develop- ment lhal has pine inlo the Safeguard proeram. Limiting Safeguard to I wo sites would save more than ?ll billion. The SALT treaty eliminate; j Ihe need for Ihe Malmstrom site where labor nucl cost problems forced a year's construction ilclay. Only about eight per cent of the work has been completed. 1'I.AN 2 OTHERS Planning for the Ihird and fourlh sites at Whitemon Air Force Case. Mo., and Warren Air Foi'je Base.

The buildings i housing the base's radars for i guiding Ihe missile to their tar- gels are nearly complete. The Spartan missile silos are three- i quarters finished, and work is proceeding on the five under- ground fields for the smaller Sprint missiles. Meanwhile, at Meek Island in the Pacific. Ihe Spartan and I Sprint have run UD more than 20 I successful lest firings against real and imagined targets.
