Informants said it would be at least four months before the North Atlantic treaty organization responds to the latest soviet proposal for talks on Mutual reduction of arms in although Bonn and Moscow Are renouncing the use of Force against each other and recognizing existing Borders in Europe troops and arms on both sides of the cold War frontiers Are Likely to remain at existing Levels indefinitely. Talks on Mutual arms reductions Are proposed for a european Security conference an idea Long pushed by the Kremlin and the soviet bloc. The Warsaw pact nations at a meeting in Budapest in june revised their proposed Agenda for a european Security conference and agreed for the first time to include talks on a the reduction of foreign armed1 forces on the territories of european states a sources Here said the nato allies would not respond before their foreign ministers meet in Brussels in december. A two Neutral european governments Austria and Finland a also have been actively press ing for a european Security conference. Both have offered their capital cities for preparatory talks. But the sources Here said these proposals would also have to await the nato meeting in december. Some nato nations notably the United states and Britain. ? have Long been sceptical of the value of a european Security conference without thorough preparation. There is concern in some Western capitals that the soviets could use the conference As a propaganda forum and As a confirmation of the formal International recognition the Western nations Are unwilling to concede to East Germany. The Western and the communist allies have agreed that both West Germany and East Germany would attend the conference even though the Western allies do not recognize the East German regime. Nato is still working out its plans for cuts in manpower and firepower in phased combinations that could be discussed with the communists. Meanwhile several nato members Are looking Fot More evidence of soviet intentions before warming to the idea of such a conference according to this line of thinking the soviet West German no aggression pact was one sign that the soviets Are sincerely interested in moving toward a detente in Europe. Another would be Between the soviet Union and the United states or in the big four talks on West Berlin.

A forty two units with about 350,000 pupils will be in full compliance for the first time. This Means about 930,000 of the states 1,200,000 school children will be attending school units that comply with Federal Keseg negation guidelines. Julius l. Chambers of Char Lotte an attorney for the a act Legal defense fund agrees with Causby that the opening of school will bring a substantial desegregation according to president Nixon a but he added this is Quot certainly not what the Constitution would require.

The children will be there but in be seen no commitment from state or Federal officials to make for a truly integrated asked what had been the experience of Black children in integrated schools Chambers said a some of it has been Good but most of it has been bad due to the Lack of commitment from local officials and others to make Black kids an integral part of the school Causby said he agreed a that what happens after the kid gets there ought to be the most important aspect of the whole integration Causby said a number of techniques had been employed to increase the amount of integration in the schools he said there had been much redrawing of school attendance zones and pairing of schools. In pair ing heretofore All White and All Black schools Are placed in a single attendance zone with ail the children in some grades attending one school All the children in other grades attending a second and All in other grades attending a third Etc.
