Carter faces NA TO summit

I)NJ)ON ' - -President
Carter attendis a North Atlantic
all1once summit meeting today
that will deal with a new topic
-cii defense - as well as the
sinal concerns of military
,o -ength and coordination.
Joseph tans, the Dutch.secre-
scirv general of the North At-
lintic Treaty Organization,
NATO, told a news conference
yesterday the Western allies
have been "disagreeably im-
pressed" by the Soviet Union's
new program of building bomb
shelters and otherwise bolster-
ing defense of the populace
against nuclear attack.
The West has lagged behind
in civil defense preparations,
Lans said.

SOME NATO analysts find the
Soviet civil defense program
ominous. They speculate the
Kremlin might be emboldened
in its dealings with the West if
it can guaranatee a high sur-
vival rate for its civilian popu-
lation in the event of nuclear at-
Strong civil defense might
encourage the Soviets to try a
first nuclear strike, according
to this theory.
Without providing details,
Luns said he expected Carter
in his speech at the NATO con-
ference to offer proposals "to
strengthen the military cohe-
sion, effectiveness and strength"
of the alliance.

LUNS SAID the United States
would be taking into account
the continuing Soviet military
buildup and expects its Euro-
pean allies to do the same. But
neither he nor U. S. officials
have given any details of the
Alliance members have squab-
bled recently over two major
programs aimed at standardiz-
ing weapons systems.
The U. S. military has balked
at allowing West German co-
production of a new main Bat-
tle tank for NATO forces, and
Britain has withdrawn its sup-
port for a proposed new NATO
air defense system consisting of
U. S. - made radar and cot-
mand planes.

LUNS SAID Carters propos-
als would be taken up in more
detail in Brussels, Belgium,
next week at a meeting of
NATO defense ministers, in-
cluding U. S. Defense Secre-
tary Harold Brown.
Fourteen heads of state and
government are scheduled to
attend the two-day meeting of
the 15-nation alliance that be-
gins today in Lancaster House,
a London conference hall.
Only' President Valery Gis-
card d'Estaing of France will
be missing. To avoid charges at
home of subservience to the
United States, Giscard d'Estaing
generally keeps NATO at arm's
length. Foreign Minister Louis
de Guiringaud will represent
Luns said that on Wednesday
NATO foreign ministers will dis-
cuss the Middle East and East-
West issues, including next
month's meeting in Belgrade,
Yugoslavia, on the 1975 Helsin-
ski agreements. The Belgrade

made in carrying out human
rights and other provisions of
the Helsinki accords.
House yesterday voted to dis-
miss election challenges brought
against Carl Pursell (R-Mich.)
and three other members of the
95th Congress.
The House dismissed chal-
lenges brought against the elec-
tions of Pursell and Reps. Ab-
ner Mikva (D-Ill.), Richard
-Kelly (R-Fla.), and Rep. Bob
Gammage (D-Tex.).

mounted an unsuccessful cam-
paign for the U. S. Senate.
The House defeated Pierce's
challenge 371 to 8.
