Hie announcement was expected to come a few hours before Reagan gives a nationally televised address on arms control monday night. Reagan sex plan known variously As a closely spaced Basing and a dense pack a comes in response to a dec. 1 deadline set by Congress for proposing a Home for the missiles.
