Kissinger daims Moscow
talks may mean future pact
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP - Atty.
Gen. William Saxbe said yesterday "the
message has got to go out all over the
country-there will be no more dirty
tricks for any reason'"
Saxbe, addressing a meeting of the
National Association of Attorneys Gen-
eral, also said, "It is hardly reassuring
when one ian goes to prison for years
for theft while another man involved in a
conspiracy to steal our freedom is in and
out of jail in the wink of an eye."
"NO ONE is suggesting that the thief
should not goato jail," Saxbe said "He
should. And so should the man who is
convicted of failing the public trust."
But Saxbe, questioned by a reporter,
said it was not his intent to suggest in
his speech disappointment with the sen-
tences handed to those convicted of Wat-
"I was talking about the whole con-
cept of the judicial process and some of
the problems that all attorneys general
have," Saxbe said. "I've been asked in
Washington many times what I think
about the sentences and I say every time
that I will not second guess these
SAXBE ALSO mentioned former Vice
President Spiro Agnew. He said "there
are people who say that prisons are out-
inoded, that no one should go to jail.
But, at the same time, with Agnew, they
say 'throw the book at him."'
"If prison 'is a correctional institution,
what can you expect to correct in an Ag-
new? What can prison do that has not
already been done to people like them
to humiliate them."
In commenting on "dirty tricks," Sax-
be warned that "criminal violations can-
not be tolerated on the part of anyone-
no matter what position of public trust
they may have held, no matter how glib
their attempt at justification may be,"
Saxbe told his state counterparts.
WASHINGTON W.-- President Nixon
and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev are
unlikely to complete agreement at the
Moscow summit on a comprehensive
treaty limiting nuclear weapons but may
make substantial progress toward a fu-
ture pact, Secretary of State Hlenry Kis-
singer said yesterdiy.
In any event, Kissinger told reporters
the third annual summit meeting begin-
ning Thursday could produce a partial
ban on underground weapons tests and
an agreement in principle to harness
fast-moving nuclear technology further.
"FOR THE United Sttes not to make
a major effort in this field is something
no future generation could possibly un-
derstand,' Kissinger said.
Kissinger said he expects and even
welcomes the "contentious debate' that
will follow in the wake of the summit.
Btit, he staid, tie administration will
not be deterred liy allegations of bad-
faith diplomacy designed to bluit the
congressioral inpeachment d r i v e
NUCLEAR technology is 'i aaling so
rapidly, Kissinger said, "there is a very
definite time pressure"
At the sane timei. e denied negotiat-
ing a secret 'greement with the Soviets
in 1972 increasing their sea-based mis-
sites by 70 and reducing the American
total by 54.
"Those arguments are totaly false in
every detail and have no merit whatso-
ever," Kissinger said of newspaper re-
ports that circulated here over the past
KISSINGER acknowledged that the
Russians were asked to sign an "inter-
pretive" statement after the trety was
negotiated to clarify how their sea-based
missiles would be counted. This state-
ment was not submitted to Congress but
the nature of the understanding was well
known, he added.
The secretary said he "had no reason
to doubt the sincerity of those who have
raised" the issue on the eve of the sum-
After Kissinger's news conference, Sen.
Henry Jackson (D-Wash.), renewed an
assertion that "a secret clarification" of
the 1972 SALT agreement gave Russia
more missiles than announced at the
BUT JACKSON said "there is specula-
tion" that in recent days the United
States made concessions in "a still fur-
ther secret agreement" to bring the
number of Soviet submarine missiles
Jackson's statement said the issue is
not "70 missiles more or less," but the
withholding from Congress of a secret
agreement which htd the effect of "al-
teritig the terms of the SAlT interins
He said the "secret clarification"
clearly required congressional approval
In virtually ruling out a comprehen-
sive nuclear weapons agreement, Kis-
singer indicated that the summit would
have set the stage for prolonged negotia-
tions. le said the specific calculations
given him by Brezhnev in the Kremlin
-last spring were unacceptable to the

cuts necessitated by the defeat of the
1.7 mill emergency levy which appeared

a freeze on all employe layoffs as weh
as extensive personnel cutbacks.
About 15 employes may be laid off,
including clerical workers, adninistra-
tive aids and police cadets.
Council vticed-few objections to Mar-
ray's prcposed outs, although seme con-
cern was voiced over the possible lay-
"I'D LIKE to make sure we're not
laying off people in departments that
are already hard-pressed," said Council-
woman Carol Jones (D-Second Ward).

HELENH UBSON, student ad hoc ad-
vocate representing Connel, reported
several other cases of alleged sex dis-
crimination in the Plant Department at
the hearing. Hudson contended that
these cases indicated a pattern of sexist

is in clear violation of an amendment to
the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Univer-

dictate equal pay for equal work.
They also bar retaliation against em-
