Arms Limitation Nixon Rejects Soviet Plan MOSCOW (UPI) - President Nixon has rejected the Soviet Union's latest plan for control of strategic arms, a senior U.S. official traveling with him said Wednesday. The American official, who could not be identified under ground rules of a news briefing, said Nixon decided the proposal would not give the United States adequate numerical superiority in multiple-warhead missiles to counter a Soviet edge in actual missile launchers. Nixon felt the Soviet proposal was "not acceptable because the gap (in favor of the United States) isn't big enough," the official told reporters aboard the President's plane en route here from Brussels before the start of summit talks with Communist party General Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev. As described by the official, the Soviet proposal would give the United States an advantage in total number of MIRVs, missiles with up to 10 separate warheads that can be fired at different targets hundreds of miles apart. But he said it would leave the Soviets with a greater number of actual missile launchers. The United States began deploying MIRVs in 1970 and now has several thousand. The Soviets' are just starting to deploy them. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said Tuesday the two. superpowers now have about a year and a half to reach a MIRV agreement before the Soviet deployment decision becomes irrevocable. In advance of his talks with Brezhnev, Nixon had voiced hope for progress toward a new agreement in ongoing Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT). '.'Our No. 1 objective is to try to prevent the arms race from getting into the next phase," the U.S. official said Wednesday. "By 1977, both sides will be heavily MIRVed, and then the situation will be out of control." The official agreed with Secretary of State Henry A. unfortunately well down waiting list, he Indicated. Lyn Whitehurst, president of the host Bay County Historical Society, noted that Bay County has less preserved and recorded history than surrounding counties. She urged action be taken before encroaching development and urbanization completely obliterate all traces of I the area's past history, s Jim Haisten,, an amateur archaeologist from Panama City, displayed Indian Artifacts gathered In the area which experts believe to range In age from several hundred to several thousand years. Haisten reported a number of sites'containing the relics and said one site, found by a colleague, had been assigned a state classification number. Thurston, in an interview after his discussion, said that all historical and archaeological sites reported to the state are encoded and computerized in order to have the data available when new highways or developments are being constructed in an area. Mrs. Whitehurst reported the local historical group was currently assembling a pioneer settlement on a nature trail at the junior museum. The exhibit will include a barn, kitchen building, log cabin and tools and utensils used during the era depicted. Representing Jackson County were Sarah Harris of Marianna and George Anderson of the Cypress Community.

Heathrow Airport Guard Still Heavy LONDON (UPI) - London's Heathrow international airport took on the look of a combat zone Thursday in the second day of a spectacular security alert called when British intelligence services said Arab guerrillas were believed preparing an attack at the nation's biggest airfield. Passengers ran a gauntlet of battle-equipped soldiers and armored cars in Britain's biggest security alert since World War II. Troops manned roadblocks and checked the identification of everyone entering the air­ port. Customs searches also were intensified. Airliner arrivals and departures were not affected. Almost 1,000 troops, supported by swarms of policemen and the weaponry of war, were rushed Wednesday to Heathrow, Britain's biggest airport, in response to intelligence reports of a probable guerrilla attack, security sources said. The sources said there was a 50-50 chance that such a raid would still take place to coincide with the arrival of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and other delegates to an inter­ national Socialist conference during the next two days. The London Dally Mail said a Palestinian suicide squad initially formed for an attack in Frankfurt during the World Cup soccer tournament was diverted to London because of heavy West German security at the games.
