Highlights Opening Day VIENNA (UPI) -U.S. and Soviet arms limitation negotiators met today for two hours and four minutes—the longest session yet in their two months of talks. Sources close to the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) said there was no significance in the length of the meeting, which was split almost evenly between a formal session and an hour of informal chat over drinks at the U.S. Embassy. A feeling of optimism was in the air. Official sources talked of "progress" and said the arms talks are "moving ahead," but added that reports from Washington of an "agreement in principle" on both offensive and defensive weapons are "premature." Other sources, however, said such an "understanding" on the need to curb antiballistic missile (ABM) defenses already exists and discussions are underway on how to implement it. The chief American delegate, Gerard C. Smith, flew to Brussels Thursday to brief Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird on the talks. Sources indicated the chances are growing that SALT will run on past early July, when it originally was expected to end. Soviet May Ask Kosygin To Stay On MOSCOW (UPI) -Premier Alexei N.
