The World Around A-Arins Production Halt Urged by US. GENEVA (UPI)--The United States Tuesday urged Russia to negotiate measures to halt the production of weapons of mass destruction as the first logical step toward complete and general disarmament. But the Rusians reiterated their demands for the Immediate destruction of almost all nucelar weapons at the start of any disarmament program. U.S. negotiator Adrian S. Fisher told the 1''-nation disarmament conference that it would be more realistic to seek agreement on halting production of nuclear weapons. He said Moscow's draft treaty would prevent any balance reduction and elimination of weapons. "If the rough balance which now exists has maintained peace among the major powers until this time, we see no reason to upset that balance," Fisher said. Soviet negotiator Semyon K. Tsarapkin repeated the Soviet demand for the immediate destruction of nearly all nuclear weapons at the start of any disarmament process. He said the U.S. wanted to retain its nuclear capacity while Russia rants "to free nations from the nuclear threat at the very start." Moro Wins Confidence Vote ROME (UPI)--Premier Aldo Moro, ranging his new government squarely against France's attack on NATO won a vote of confidence Tuesday night from the Italian Chamber of Deputies.

[ The Christian Demo; cratic premier did not \ s p e c i f i c a l l y mention 1 French President Charles j de Gaulle's plan to with- j draw French forces from NATO command, but he said: j "The Atlantic Alliance has given proof of its ef- ; fectiveness as an instrument of peace and means of j deterranco precisely by maintaining in peacetime an · integrated and inter-dependent military organization." : Outbreak of Fever Feared BUENOS AIRES, Argentina W) -- Heavy rains poured down Tuesday on already flooded areas along the Parana River in Argentina, causing official con'. cem about possible outbreaks of typhoid and yellow fever.

PREMIER ALDO MORO De Gaulle Assailed by Britain j LONDON (*--Prime Minister Harold Wilson Tuesday assailed President Charles de Gaulle's planned withdrawal of French forces from tlie in- egrated military command of the North Atlantic Alliance. At the same time, Britain charged the move would be llegal. But in a letter to the "rench leader, unyielding in ts criticism, Wilson was care- 'ul to slam no door to future military cooperation between France and her 14 NATO jartners. De Gaulle has offered to discuss new arrangements for such cooperation. The accusation that France would be acting illegally by pulling out of NATO's mili tary network came from Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart. * * * * OPENING a two-day ministerial meeting of the seven-nation Western European Union, Stewart said France's walkout would contravene a 1954 series of agreements between the allies. These created the European union in its present form, set the basis for West German independ ence and defined the limits of a German rearmament program. One of its provisions bound the signatories, including France, to assign to NATO command certain forces mainland F.urope not wanted for national purposes. Delegates of West Ger-j many, Italy, Holland, Belgium! and Luxembourg lined up be-| und Stewart in criticizing Dej Gaulle's policy. Jean de Broglie, speaking 'or France, met the onslaught :ersely by saying: "France's desire for changes: n NATO is as great as her! desire that the treaty itself in its political context) should endure."
