Brezhnev achieved the first concrete results of their summit today, agreeing on three cooperative ventures, including research and development on an artificial heart. The two other agreements involve cooperation in the housing field and in energy development. The agreement on heart re search contemplates joint efforts to improve synthetic cardiac valves and to develop artificial hearts. Researchers from both countries also would seek ways to extend the operational life of cardiac pacemakers and would work together to improve diagnostic techniques aimed at heading off heart attacks by early detection of Prosecutor: Ehrlichman Approved Raid By MIKE SHANAHAN Associated Press Writer . WASHINGTON CAP) Former White House domestic counselor John D. Ehrlichman approved the break-in at the of-. fice of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist the weekend before the break-in occurred, prosecutor William S. Merrill charged in court today.- Opening his case in the Plumbers trial, Merrill quoted Ehrlichman as saying in a phone call to White House subordinates about the then proposed break-in: "Okay, let me know if they find anything." Merrill said the phone call occurred Aug. 31, , 1971, four days before the break-in at the office of Dr. Lewis J. Fielding, the Beverly Hills psychiatrist who treated Ellsberg. Ellsberg subsequently was put on trial on charges stemming from the release of the Pentagon Papers but a federal judge dismissed the charges after learning among other things of the break-in at Fielding's office. Merrill said Ehrlichman's approval was contingent only upon the covert operation not being traced to the White House. Merrill said Ehrlichman's approval came in a phone call from Cape Cod, Mass., where he was vacationing, to David R. . Young and Egil Krogh, who" headed the White House investigative., unit known as the Plumbers. ' The trial opened on Wednesday and jury selection was' completed late Thursdayf - .

They also would try to develop instruments to detect and treat heart ailments of children. Under the accord, the two countries would exchange models of artificial hearts and other devices for testing and would publish the results of joint research efforts. Under the housing and construction agreement, special efforts would be made to develop criteria for building in earthquake-prone areas and in regions effected by climatic extremes, such as arctic cold and desert heat. The energy agreement called for a broad and balanced range of joint research and development programs on conventional and unconventional energy forms, environmental problems related to energy, and ways to restrain energy by Henry H. Jones, one of two black lawyers working for the former presidential assistant. The other defendants are convicted Watergate conspirators G. Gordon Liddy, Bernard L. . Barker and Eugenio L. Martinez. U.S. District Judge Gerhard A. Gesell sped the jury selection process along Wednesday and Thursday, narrowing the pool to 90 persons he judged in close court sessions to be sufficiently free of pretrial bias for or against the defendants. Defense attorneys asked for, and were denied, dismissal of charges because of the broad, national attention given the case.

Nixon and Brezhnev got down to the business of their third summit meeting earlier in the day. "We nave a list that long," said Brezhnev, stretching his arms wide for an inquiring American newsman. And first on it "is the strengthening of friendly relations." "The main talks are just beginning today," said the Soviet leader as he waited for Nixon to arrive at his Kremlin office. "Basically, yesterday, we just exchanged speeches." Nixon started his day with a trip to the tomb of the Soviet unknown soldier beneath the Kremlin wall to place the customary wreath. His arrival at Brezhnev's office was delayed 15 minutes when he made an unscheduled stop to shake hands with some of the hundreds of Russians watching from behind police barricades. "Friendship!" one Russian woman shouted to the President. "Peace and friendship," said another. "For everybody," said Nixon, "for the whole world, the Russian people and the American people."

Kissinger; State Department counselor Helmut Sonnenfeldt, an arms specialist; Walter Stoessel, the U.S. ambassador to Moscow; William G. Hyland, director of the State Department Intelligence and Research Bureau, and Maj. Gen. Brent Scowroft, a national security adviser on the presidential staff.

States, farther down the table.
