UNITED NATIONS (AP)- The
United States and the Soviet Union an-
nounced yesterday that negotiations to
control nuclear weapons in Europe will
begin Nov. 30 in Geneva, the first
tangible result of high-level U.S.-Soviet
talks here.
A joint statement said they -would
"spare no effort" to reach agreement,
lthough U.S. officials said privately
he negotiations likely will take many
months, if not years.
THE TALKS will be the first signific-
nat negotiations between the Reagan
administration and the Soviet leader-
ship after months of harsh rhetoric
between the two superpowers.
Agreement to begin the talks came.
during the four hour meeting here
Wednesday between Secretary of State
Alexander Haig and Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei Gromyko. They are to
meet again Monday.

The joint announcement said, "Both
sides believe in the importance of these
negotiations for enhancing stability and
international security and pledged to
spare no effort to reach an appropriate
agreement."
PAUL NITZE -was named the chief
U.S. negotiator. Considered a hardliner
on dealing with the Soviets, the 74-year-
old Nitze helped negotiate the first
Strategic Arms Limitation Agreement
in 1972, but he opposed the unratified
1979 SALT Ii accord.
The new negotiations will be known
as the Theater Nuclear Force talks.
The Soviet side will be headed by Am-
bassador U.A.Kvitsinsky, most recen-
fly assigned to the Soviet Embassy in
West Germany.
President Reagan told Leonid
Brezhnev, the Soviet leader, in a letter
Tuesday the United States wants
"significant, verifiable reductions in

nuclear weapons . . ." U.S. negotiators
are likely to demand ironclad
verification procedures for any
agreement.
THE JOINT announcement said the
discussions will be aimed at control of
nuclear arms, but didn't specify what
nuclear arms would be covered, in-
dicating the exact scope of the talks'
hasn't yet been agreed on.
The United States and most of its
NATO allies hope to emerge with an
agreement to' control medium-range
nuclear missiles in Europe, and favor
initially limiting the talks to those
missiles.
The Soviet Union, on the other hand,
wants a broader focus, to include other
European-based nuclear weapons, such
as U.S. aircraft.
WHILE MEDIUM-range missile
talks are not on the level of SALT
negotiations, they are considered part

of the overall SALT process, or
framework, U.S. officials say. A Defen-
se Department official said earlier this
week the administration may make
proposals for a new round of SALT talks
within the next six months.
The NATO decision to start deploying
the U.S.-made missiles in two years,
coupled with the administration's
decision to start manufacturing the
neutron warhead, has sparked major
protests in West Germany and created
political headaches for Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt,
NATO in 1979 agreed to deploying 572
Pershing and cruise missiles to counter
the Soviet installation of medium-range
SS-20 missiles targeted on Europe. But
the members have insisted on a U.S.
commitment to hold the arms talks
with the Soviets in hopes the Soviets
will remove their missiles and the U.S.
missiles won't be needed.

College Board plans new exam

WASHINGTON (AP) - The College
Board, long ark arbiter of the top
achievers in the nation's high schools,
aid yesterday it wants to set the
inimum skills all college-bound
students should possess.
One, board official said the
organization may design a new test
rivaling its college entrance
examination, the Scholastic Aptitude
Test, to measurethose minimum skills.
It does not have such a test yet, he said.
THE BOARD - a non-profit group of
,500 colleges, schools and education
ssociations - announced plans for a
I 10-year drive called "Project Equality"
to boost high school standards and
prepare more minority students for
college. ,
Conferring with more than 400
educators over the past year, the board
said it found a consensus on six basic
academic competencies needed for
college. They are: reading, writing,
listening and speaking, mathematics,

reasoningand knowing how to study.
The "basic academic curriculum,"
whether a student is bound for Harvard
or a community college, also should in-
clude courses in English, mathematics,
foreign language, history or social
studies, natural science and the visual
and performing arts, the board said.
IN THE YEAR ahead, after further
discussions with educators and
curriculum experts, the board plans to
offer a more detailed definition of what
students should have learned in those
courses.
Since "the content and difficulty of
high school courses, even though
bearing the same label, may vary
widely from school to school," the
board said, it is essential to define
"what students should have accom-
plished in those areas in terms of lear-
ning outcomes rather than simply
number of years studied."
College Board President George Han-
ford said the project "is not an attempt

to establish a single national
curriculum." It will be up to schools,
colleges, teachers, parents and studen-
ts to carry out the drive for higher stan-
dards, he said.
THE PLAN IS a response to the
erosion of scholastic standards charted
by the steady decline in SAT scores.
The average verbal score on the
multiple choice test, scored on a 200-to-
800 scale, has dropped from 478 to 424
since 1963. The average math score has
dropped from 502 to 466.
'U' prof
speaks to
Con gress
on media
regulation
The government may eventually
have to decide once and for all whether
to engage in public-interest regulation
of broadcast media, or to cease from
any such regulation entirely, a Univer-
sity professor told a Congressional sub-
committee.
Prof. Lee Bollinger, a specialist in
First Amendment theory at the Univer-
sity's Law School, said the advent of
new technologies such'as "videotext"
and "teletext" news
dissemination-where newspapers'
contents are actually broadcast on a
Svideoscreen-raises unusual questions
on First Amendment rights and media
regulation.
IN THE PAST, said Bollinger, the
courts and regulatory agencies have
followed a dual policy regarding First
Amendment issues-leaving the print
media virtually unregulated, while
establishing rules for "fairness" and
"reasonable access" requiring a diver-
sity of views over the airwaves.
But Bollinger said widespread use of
"videotext" would actually combine
print and broadcast media, and could
raise complicated free speech
questions.
"We will feel compelled to choose
whether or not to regulate at all.
"THOUGH IT IS difficult now to see
how that choice sould be made in the
distant future, the presumption should
be, I think, against, rather than for,
total regulation," argued Bollinger.
Total regulation under those circum-
stances would be risky because "we
might lose in the process that intangible
but nevertheless vital sense within the
press of being independent, and to some
degree 'unaccountable' to anything but
its own journalistic standards."
IN THE MORE immediate future,
Bollinger said he doubted that the
widespread availability of cable
television today would significantly
alter present government regulation of
broadcasting. Instead, he said, the
courts are likely to continue the trend of
"affirmative" regulation of broad-
casting, designed to promote broad-
casting in the "public interest."
