Brezhnev agreed at the Moscow summit today to send American and Soviet spacemen on a joint earth-orbital flight in 1975. The agreement, climaxing more than 18 months of technical discussions between the space agencies of the two nations, was signed at the second day of summit talks which also concerned a pact to limit strategic weapons and the framework of an understanding on mutual trade. Symbolizing the speed and success of the negotiations at the top, Brezhnev took Nixon's arm at the end of signing of the space pact and led him off for an evening at his suburban dacha. Preliminary plans for the joint space flight call for a three-man Apollo spacecraft and a three-man Soviet space station to dock together and circle the earth for about two days. The main aim is to test equipment and techniques for space rescue. THE TWO COUNTRIES already had agreed last December to develop compatible airlocks and docking equipment to carry out the ambitious mission.

Wayne Morse, 71, won a clear victory over three opponents yesterday, setting the stage for What Victory in California Could Mean By Walter R. Mears Associated Press Writer Sen. George McGovern has won the final political warm-ups, and now the Democratic presidential game is called California. It could be decisive. The stakes are high. Its winner-take-all primary campaign is costly and difficult. And if past performance is a guide, California voters may not be persuaded by the preliminaries. There are 271 delegate votes at stake. There are 17 presidential primaries behind the campaigners now. They have transformed Sen. Edmund S. Muskie from a winter favorite into a springtime also-ran.

Ziegler summed up the good feeling that seemed to pervade the first 2 days of the summit. "The President is gratified and encouraged by these important forward steps in Soviet-American cooperation," he said, referring to the four agreements signed so far that also include combined attacks on cancer, heart disease and air and water pollution. "President Nixon often has spoken of the necessity of great powers working together to create not just peace but a structure for peace," Ziegler said. "The President feels that the agreements signed today, and yesterday constitute important building blocks for such a structure." As they did at the signing of medical and antipollution cooperation pacts yesterday, the Soviets broke out champagne for today's ceremony. Nixon stood in a corner of the room, sipping from his glass and accepting toasts from Soviet officials. THE OFFICIALS had the air of businessmen having a drink at the end of a long day. Brezhnev acted as something of a cheerleader, smiling and waving his hands in a "drink up" gesture. Then Brezhnev and Nixon got into Brezhnev's red-flag-bearing black limousine.

George McGovern, an overwhelming victor in the Rhode Island and Oregon Democratic primaries, headed south today to battle Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey in California's June 6 showdown. McGovern says that if he can win California with its 271 delegates, he might be able to wrap up the Democratic presidential nomination before the national convention opens July 10 in Miami Beach, Fla. The two victories yesterday gave McGovern 56 more delegates 22 in Rhode Island, 34 in Oregon. And he added 11 more from Missouri district meetings to swell his first-place total to 502 of the 1,509 votes needed to capture the nomination. IN RHODE ISLAND, where the South Dakota senator never campaigned but relied on his spirited volunteer organization and appearances by his wife Eleanor, he polled 41 per cent of the vote. McGovern's total was more than the combined sum for Sens. Edmund S. Muskie and Hubert H. Humphrey, who finished second and third". In Oregon, where he was Mrs. Mink Pulls of Presidential By Peter J. Walsh Gannett News Service WASHINGTON Rep. Patsy Mink officially called it quits today in her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination: She had received 2 per cent of the vote in yesterday's Oregon Democratic primary. "Having lost in Oregon, that's the end of my bid to seek any delegate support," she said. Mrs. Mink had been counting on the Oregon results to give her a shot at the 50 delegates needed to put her 1 overn scores the only major candidate to campaign, McGovern's percentage hovered at about 50 per cent in an 11-candidate field that included Rep. Patsy T. Mink of Hawaii. She received 2 per cent of the vote. Gov. George C. Wallace, beneficiary of a substantial media campaign, was a surprisingly strong second. Humphrey was third. President Nixon easily won the Republican primaries in the two states. "WE HAVE LOTS to celebrate tonight," McGovern told 500 cheering supporters at a downtown Portland hotel, "and two weeks from tonight, I want you to know we are planning a great celebration in the state of California." Asked if he thought he could go to Miami Beach with the nomination wrapped up, McGovern said that "depends largely on whether we win in California two weeks from tonight." He added: "I expect to win in California, after a. hard ef-. fort." He planned to fly to Sacramento to start his California drive with a speech to a Press Club luncheon on the problems of Mexican-Americans, the largest minority group in the state. if: 84 Pages o OJ they sped west out of town for 15 miles to the Borovikho estate that Brezhnev has occupied since Nikita S. Khrushchev was ousted from the premiership and party leadership in 1964. A Soviet official said, "This is a very good sign a very good sign." The second full day of the summit began with an hour-and-50-minute meeting at a 40-foot table in the Kremlin's Catherine Hall. Sources on both sides gave the word that most details had been worked out on a strategic arms limitation agreement, along with final terms of a series of scientific and trade agreements. As outlined to newsmen in Moscow and Washington, the arms pact in essence would limit each country to about 200 defensive missiles; freeze placement of land-based offensive missiles, with some limited exceptions, and limit the number of missile-carrying nuclear submarines to 41 for the United States and 42 for the Russians. The Soviet Union would continue its numerical superiority in land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles. But because of its arsenal of multiple-warhead missiles, the United States would maintain its lead in the quality and total megatonnage of ICBMs. 7 j 4 1 1 name into nomination at the Democratic national convention at Miami Beach in July.

Humphrey, already campaigning in California after conceding Oregon in advance to McGovern, congratulated his rival but said "California is a separate arena all to itself." McGovern decided to contest the Rhode Island primary only after Muskie dropped his active primary campaigning last month. Humphrey made a campaign appearance there last Wednesday, and Muskie dropped in for a speech Friday to demonstrate that he was still a presidential candidate. The Maine senator did fairly well in Providence, where Mayor Joseph Door-ley was a leading supporter. But McGovern scored heavily in suburban towns and cities. .

Sen. George McGovern. the next most active of the 11 Democrats on the ballot, spent only five days there. Mrs. Mink estimated the-total campaign expenditures on her behalf in Oregon at $10,000 while McGovern is reported to have invested about $100,000. Gov. George Wallace spent some $25,000 on a television campaign there. "IT'S IMPOSSIBLE" to reach the voters without money to spend for media advertisements," Mrs. Mink said. "I guess grass roots politics are out." "When the people in Oregon invited me to be their candidate, it seemed like a challenge which should be assumed by someone," she said. "The notion that, despite not being a national candidate, a person could make a bid for the nomination was a challenge. The results indicate that the voters did not go along with that." She said the inability to attract sufficient financing hinged on the lack of a national image. "The difficulty is being unable to demonstrate a viability," she said. "It is difficult to attract real (financial) support." MRS. MINK said she believed her stand against the war in Vietnam was her most important contribution to the campaign. "When I decided in October to become a candidate, none of the national candidates was viewing Vietnam as an issue," she said. "They had relegated it to a back burner in favor of the economy." .However, she said, "tfcs validity of my position later contributed to my not being able to do well" in Oregon.
