Soviets avor missile reduction

MOSCOW (Reuter) - Soviet.
President Leonid Brezhnev said
yesterday the Soviet Union was ready
to move swiftly toward negotiations
with the West on cutting nuclear
missiles in Europe.
He coupled the offer to hold talks
"without delay" with a warning to
NATO not to go ahead with plans to
deploy new medium-range nuclear
mesiles in Europe pending the outcome
of the negotiations.
BREZHNEV'S remarks came in a
brief interview with the Soviet Com-
munist Party paper Pravda, issued in,
advance by Tass news agency.

His offer of talks was clearly
designed as a followup to a speech he
made in East Berlin four weeks ago in
which he offered to cut back the Soviet
Union's medium-range missiles if
NATO dropped plans to modernize its
own "Euro-strategic" arsenal.
The NATO alliance is to decide next
month whether to go ahead with the
deployment in Western Europe of
several hundred American cruise
missiles and pershing-II rockets
capable of hitting the Soviet Union.
BREZHNEV'S Berlin offer was
widely viewed in the West as an attem-
pt to forestall the NATO moves and

drive a wedge between Washington and
its allies.
NATO planners say the new missiles
should be given the go-ahead before any
bargaining starts with Moscow.
By offering a quick start to
negotiations, Brezhnev appeared to be
putting a new gloss on his Berlin
speech, in which he referred"only in
general terms to the need for NATO to
respond to Soviet initiatives.
THE SOVIET leader said his
proposals last month had been correc-
tly understood "by all those who hold
dear the peace and security of
Europe," but his offer had displeased

those who wanted to whip up the arms
race, particularly in the field of
medium-range missiles.
"As regards a practical solution of
the problem of these weapons, there is
only one way to follow - that of em-
barking on negotiations. The Soviet
Union is of the view that negotiations
must be embarked on without delay,
Brezhnev said.
He went on to say it was most impor-
tant that no "hasty actions" be taken
which might obstruct the attainment of
results from East-West talks.
"There will be a greater chance of ob-
taining such results if no decisions are
taken on the production and
deployment in Western Europe of the
above-mentioned means pending the
outcome of the negotiations. And con-
versely, the chances will be under-
mined if such decisions are taken
within the framework of NATO," he
Brezhnev repeated an earlier offer by
the Warsaw Pact to renounce the first
use of both nuclear and conventional
arms in Europe. "So far, we have not
received an answer to this proposal,"
he said.

You don't like the shape America's in?
O.K. change it.

America's got too many poor
people, right? And there's plenty of
other problems too. Take our cities.
The shape of some of them is
enough to make you cry. And waste
and ignorance, the cycle of poverty
that traps one generation after
another because they're too busy
just holding on to get ahead. The
ravages of hunger and disease.

O.K. now's the time for action ...
join VISTA: Volunteers in Service
to America. If you're eighteen or
eighty-great, we want you. We
want you to organize in your com-
munity, or someone else's. Helping
miners in Appalachia learn a new
skill. Or migrant farm workers'
children to read. We want you to
organize a clinic in Watts. Or fight

home about either. But there's one
thing wve can promise you, there
will be plenty to write home about.
About the things you've
learned while working with others.
And the progress you've made. And
that feeling deep inside you, know-
ing that you've returned the favor
America gave you. O.K. you know
what's wrong, right? Now go ahead,
