sign nuclear
arms accord
By The Associated Press
President Nixon and Soviet leaders signed a historic
agreement at the Moscow summit yesterday to curb the
superpower nuclear arms missile race, but abandoned ef-
forts to negotiate at the Kremlin a broad trade agreement.
The unprecedented accord to limit the stockpiles of
both offensive and defensive strategic weapons was agreed
upon, spokespersons said, at the eighth meeting of Nixofi
and the Soviet leaders, including Communist Party chief
Leonid Brezhnev.
The limits set out in the five-year pact and an accom-
panying executive agreement are still loose enough to
provide room for an extended arms race should either

SECOND DAY:
N. Viets continue attack
with tanks on, Kontum _

SAIGON (P) - Several North
Vietnamese battallions supported
by tanks continued their attack
on Kontum yesterday. South
Vietnamese headquarters in Plei-
ku claimed that 157 Communist
troops were killed and nine tanks
were knocked out in the second
day of the current fighting.
It was reported that shortly
before dusk South Vietnamese
troops were a d v a n e i n g on
pockets of communist troops still
entrenched on the outskirts of
Kontum.
It was believed that if the

communists could hold out until
dark they could bring in rein-
forcements for a renewed assault
on the provincial capital in the
central highlands.
American military advisers in
Kontum described the situation
as under control. The North
Vietnamese first penetrated the
city early Thursday, pounded it
with some 800 rounds of rockets
and artillery later in the day and
strengthened their attack force
yesterday.
American sources, however,

ed sources, will be moving to

In a brief speech, Nixon said
he was leaving the presidency
Secause. "the reople no longer
want me. I can't take it any
longer."
After receiving this news, The
Daily staff realized that Father
of the Year Spiro Agnew, for-
merly Vice President, is now
President. The Daily staff, in a
state of shock, will not publish
a paper Tuesday, but should
have their minds - and the
paper-together for Wednesday.
CEW has helped develop a
special night school program
for women who are unable to
attend day classes. Offerings
include a number of courses
needed for University distribu-
tion requirements. Although
women who cannot attend day
classes are given preference in
electing these night courses,
other students can enroll if
there is room.
In addition to counseling and
the night school program, CEW
has initiated two scholarship
programs. An emergency fund
for part-time students aided
fifty women in 1971. Twenty
merit scholarships were award-
ed in April.
CEW is currently consider-
ing an experiment in counseling
undergraduate women.

said 12 enemy tanks were de-
stroyed by U.S. wire-guided mis-
siles, government artillery and
hand-carried, single-shot 1 i g h t
antitank weapons.
Three of the tanks, the sources
said, were U.S.-built M41s cap-
tured from government troops
by the North Vietnamese early
in the day. South Vietnamese
spokespersons, however, report-
ed only nine tanks hit and made
no mention of any captured ma-
chines.
U.S. forces now are using spe-
cial helicopters and jeeps armed
with armor-piercing missiles to
combat the recent influx of tanks

offensive.
In the air war, American war-
planes pounded the Haiphong
area for the third successive
day in what was disclosed as a
catnnaign to cut the port city off
fros t he rest of North Vietnam.
The U S. Command said Navy
rilots from the carrier Midway
knocked out two major highway
b ilg- just outside Haiphong on
Thursday, following by 24 hours
a raid that destroyed a nearby
highway and railroad bridge.
"Everything leads t h r o u g h
Hainhng and Hanoi," an Ameri-
can military spokesman said. "So
if you cut the rail lines and the
highway bridges, you cut every-
thing else off."
The pilots are reported con-
tinuing attacks on industrial
plants and ether bridges, in near-
ly 300 strikes carried out Thurs-
day but not reported until yes-
terday.
Heavy fighting also was re-
ported en the southern front of
the besieged provincial capital
of An Lee, 60 miles north of
Saigon.
The fighting erupted along
Highway 13 just south of An
Loc, which has been under siege
since April 7. Field reports said
104 North Vietnamese troops
were killed, half of them by air
strikes, while government forces
suffered 20 troops dead and 30
wounded.
