Family Weekly TV Ford meets I firw Htrrln tully Journsl Murpliyibore SUNDAY NOVEMBER 24 hnev Vladivostok USSR AP President Ford said Sunday he was encouraged about the progress he is making with Soviet leader Leonid I Brezhnev on establishing guidelines for a new 10year treaty limiting offensive nuclear weapons We hope we dont disappoint you the President bundled in a wolfskin parka with a Eussian sable hat on his head told newsmen at the door of his dacha villa Were encourag ed He then walked down a path to a conference center where Brezhnev awaited him for the second day of talks Encouraged by progress on treaty limiting offensive nuclear arms on the nuclear arms limitation treaty as well as a variety of other topics including the Middle East Ford and Brezhnev had met In the white stucco building until past midnight Saturday discussing only one subject how to instruct negotiators in Geneva on framing a nuclear arms limitation treaty in time to sign when the two leaders meet again in Washington next summer After the more than six hours of talks Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger told newsmen We are in the same ballpark Enough was done to give impetus to the negotiations in Geneva We have come closer to our goal The twoday summit has been widely publicized in the Soviet press reflecting the Kremlins determination to move ahead with its policy of detente A new significant page is being inscribed into the chronicle of the relationship between our countries marked with the spirit of detente and Government enters coal talks c New York Times Washington The government intervened hi the deadlocked national coal miners strike Saturday night by ordering both sides to renew Intensive bargaining with help from federal mediators The full negotiating teams of both sides were summoned by telegram to appear at 3 pm Sunday at the Labor Depart ment here in the office of W J Usery Jr the director of the Federal Mediation and Con ciliation Service The telegrams noted that both parties have worked diligently and in good faith to consummate an acceptable agreement But in the 12th day of the miners strike Usery said that the mounting toll this dispute is inflicting on the nation now makes it im perative that a resolution be reached promptly Earlier Usery had said he preferred to see a coal contract negotiated without direct federal in tervention He asked both sides to assemble their ratifying or ad visory committees in Washington and to hold them in readiness As the revived talks con tinued Saturday however there were no signs that the industry was willing to make enough new concessions to satisfy the minersdemands At a lunch break in his meetings with Arnold R Miller the president of the United Mine Workers Guy Farmer the chief negotiator for the Bituminous Coal Operators Association told reporters Everybody knows that a very serious strike is going on in a major industry and I feel that pressure But Farmer was also known to be feeling pressure from his side of the bargaining table not to acede to the new demands that the 38member Union Bargaining Council instructed Miller to take back to the in dustry Farmer would not comment on Userys move while Miller said he still hoped we can resolve the matter ourselves The Union Council which has the authority to accept or re ject any agreement that Miller reaches with the mine owners voted 37591 Friday after a weeks deliberations to ask for more in wages than the 15 per cent increase accepted by Miller in his tentative settle ment with the industry on Nov 13 The exact amount wanted was apparently not mentioned in the councils instructions to Miller But reportedly there was talk among some council members of demanding a 20 per cent raise in the first year of a threeyear contract and of rejecting anything less The tentative Nov 13 agreement called for a 9 per cent pay in crease in the first year with 3 per cent more in each at the next two years Although Miller a 52yearold former West Virginia coal miner has repeatedly asserted that the Nov 13 agreement represented the most that the industry could give and was the best contract in the history of the labor move ment he joined Friday in the councils vote to go back to the industry for more Miller had strongly urged the bargaining council to approve the Nov 13 agreement Judge relates Agnew resignation details Norfolk Va AP The judge who placed former Vice President Spiro T Agnew on probation says it was more important to get Agnew out of office than Into jail He said officials involved in the case feared that a trial might end in a hung jury and divide the na tion Former US District Judge Walter E Hoffman also said in an interview appearing in Sun days edition of the Norfolk Virginian Pilot that the main concern of bffiials was to get Agnew out of office because they feared he might become president if then President Richard M Nixon was forced out by Watergate Hoffman said Agnew escaped a jail sentence because he refused to plead no contest to a tax evasion charge unless he was guaranteed not going to jail normalization declared the government newspaper Izvestia The nuclear arms limitations treaty apparently has been the key topic of discussion The United States and Soviet Union are both committed to a 10 year treaty limiting missiles bombers and other means of waging nuclear warfare The
