President Nixon addressed
a spar sel attended joint
session of Congress last
night to urge approval of
a r m s limitations agree-
ments lie has signed with
Soviet leaders.
Speoaking before a nation-
wide television and radio audi-
ence in iithe House chamber,
Nixon said. "I have not come
here this evening to make new
announcements in a dramatic
s=tting. This summit has al-
ready made its news."
The President outlined the
various agreements reached
during his summit meeting in
Mo-cow earlier in the week, but
said the most important of the
accords "is the treaty and relat-
ed ixecutiv eagreementwhich

both offensive and defensive
strategic nuclear weapons in
the arsenals of the United
Stales aiid the USSR."

Security seemed tighter than
usual, with hundreds of uni-
formed police and plainclothes
officers swarming outside and
inside the Capitol.
Nixon said these agreements
provide a foundation for a new
relationship between two pow-
erful nations with a recent his-
tory of antagonism.
"As a preliminary, therefore."
the President went on, "to re-
questing your concurrance in
some of the agreements we
reached and your approval of
funds to carry out others, and
also as a keynote for the unity
in which this government and
this nation must go forward

District judge strikes
down wire-tap law

1968 federal law allowing wire-
tapping was ruled unconstitu-
tional yesterday by a U.S. Dis-
trict Court judge,
Judge Joseph Lord Jr. said the
law was "unconstitutional on
its face" because it violated the
Fourth Amendment to the U.S.
Constitution, which guarantees
citizens privacy against illegal
searches and intrusions.
"The privacy 'of every citizen
is in jeopardy if we become a
nation which sanctions the in-
discriminate use of secret elec-
tronic searches by the govern-
ment," the judge said in his

partment spokesman said there

Duig tunes lift

If you happened to wander
through the diag last Saturday
evening you may have been
mildly astonished to hear the
melodic strings from Stravin-
sky's "Rite of Spring" resound-
ing in the moonlight.
Surprised passers-by dallied in
the diag last weekend taking in
the sounds of some of the world's
greatest classical composers in-
cluding Bach, Beethoven and
Lastweek's presentation was
the first of a series of classical
music recordings which are be-
ing broadcast on the diag by two
local music enthusiasts, Doug
Sutherland and Ron Urbach.
The major thrust of the pre-
sentations is classical music with
some jazz as well.
Selections will represent mu-
sic from several time periods

and will include various types of
Baroque lute music, romantic
concertos, renaissance, modern
and contemporary pieces will be
aired as well as Japanese, Bai-
nese, and Indian compositions.
"Music should be a dialogue--
something that everyone can re-
late to," says Urbach.
Urbach said that he's open to
and welcoming all suggestions
for the presentations.
"People can bring their own
records and we'll play them,"
he says.
Urbach says lie is urging
local musicians and dancers who
are interested iii giving live per-
formances to contact him.
"We have a 20 input mixer
with mikes that can handle any-
thing up to a midi-orchestra,"X
he says.
"We'd like to get some waltzes
and polkas going in the evening

SP iri ts
and some itight-timme ballet and
interpretive dancimg to accom-
pany the musical presentations,"
Urbach adds.
The music will tentatively be
broadcast every Saturday froim
noon to midnight.
Urbach says the musical pre-
sentations received a positive re-
sponse from most of the people
in the area.
"We only had two complaimts
and they were from people who
said they couldn't do their work
because the music was too beau-
"We're concerned because we
don't want to violate the space
of others," he says.
Urbach says that he is hoping
to organize an all-day presenta-

though, the Arb has its owe
