U.S., Soviet arms talks end'

GENEVA, Switzerland (M -
The United States and the So-
viet Union yesterday ended
three days of high-level nego-
tiations aimed at working out
a compromise formula on nu-
clear weapons limitation.
Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance, the chief U. S. negotia-
tor, called the talks "very use-
ful," but therp was no imme-
diate word on whether agree-
ment had been reached.
VANCE SAID a joint com-
munique would be issued Satur-
day before he and Soviet For-
eign Minister Andrei Gromyko,
the Kremlin's top negotiator,

headed home.
"The talks have been very
useful as far as we are con-
cerned and I believe that view
is shared by the Soviet Union
as well," Vance said at the end
>f the final session.
He said he would have noth-
ing to add until he holds a news
conference Saturday morning.
EARLIER yesterday, the two
men appeared in good spirits as
they began their last meeting.
"We are silent like fish," Gro-
myko joked to reporters at
the Soviet mission, where the
talks were held.
Vance and U. S. negotiators
brought with them responses to
"a number of ideas" on a new
treatypresented by Gromyko.
It was thought the response
came from consultations be-
tween Vance and President
Asked at that time is a final
agreement had been reached,
Vance said: "Not yet."
WHEN A reporter asked Gro-
myko whether any progress
had been made, the Soviet en-

voy parried, "That's a very
far - reaching question."
The two sides were trying to
resolve their differences over
the number and kinds of strate-
gic weapons that would be cov-
ered by a new arms limitation
treaty replacing the current
five-year accord, which expires
in October.
TheSoviets last March re-
jected two American proposals.
U. S. officials said privately
that the negotiations here were
centered on a compromise of
those plans with a modified So-
viet proposal.
viet "ideas", proposed by Gro-
myko after consultation with
the Kremlin, were kept secret.
But U. S. spokesman Hodding
Carter told reporters:
"I can say generally we
are continuing to work inten-
sively and the meetings thus
far have been worthwhile."
Carter said a communique
would be issued Saturday cov-
ering the arms ne otiations
and talks between Vance and
Gromyko on the Middle East.

Right-winger Begin
iWis Israell election
TEL AVIV, Israel (A - Menahem Begin, the perennial out-
sider who has become kingpin of Israeli politics, began assemb.-
ling a special delegation from his right-wing Likud bloc yesterday
to explain Likud's hard-line positions to U. S. politicians and the
American public.
Final elections results announced yesterday showed that Begin
will have little trouble forming a coalition government headed by
VIRTUALLY assured of being Israel's new prime minister, the
Likud leader met with outgoing Acting Prime Minister Shimon
Peres for a briefing on affairs of state.
The state radio said the Likud mission to the United States
would probably be headed by Prof. Moses Arens, an aeronautical
engineer who has held senior scientific posts in the Defense Min-
Some Likud sources said Begin would also name Shmuel
Katzn, a comrade from his guerrilla days, to the delegation. Katzn
was a member of Begin's Irgun Zvai Leumi underground organiz-
ation, which fought for Israeli independence in the 1940s,
MANY OBSERVERS say Likud's tough attitude toward deal-
ing with Israel's Arab neighbors has dimmed hopes of an early
Middle East settlement. But Egyptian Anwar Sadat seemed to
disagree with that assessment Friday, reportedly saying it does
not matter who is prime minister of Israel because "the United
States has the cards."


By the time
we're old enough to
have children, we've
been thoroughly sold
on the idea.
By our parents,
our grandparents,
our friends and
neighbors, the media,
It's hard to
remember we ever
had a choice in the
first place.
But there is a
choice. Having a
child is a tremendous
responsibility and
art important decision.
Probably the most
important decision
we'll ever make.
And once it's
made, it can never
be undone.
Just remember ...
you do have a choice.
So think about it,
and do what's right
for you.
