60 The Arizona Republic m Phoenix. Fri., April 4, 1969 SEN. EDMUND MUSKIE Muskie seeks ABM policy clarification United Press International WASHINGTON - Sen. Edmund S. Muskie, D-Maine, believes President Nixon should have revealed Russia's aim of first-strike capability when he announced the decision to deploy an antiballistic missile system (ABM). "The debate sort of floats along from disclosure to disclosure by the Defense Department in a ' Jway that makes it difficult for the American people to focus on the essential elements of a decision," Muskie said in an interview with UPI yesterday. AN ABM deployment decision by the President "should not, could not be made inde pendent of such a policy objective," Muskie said. "So, frankly, I'm puzzled why, if indeed this is this administration's evaluation of Soviet policy, why the President did not say so at the time of his ABM decision." In recent hearings before the Senate Armed Services Committee and the disarmament subcommittee, Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird said the ABM was needed to defend against any Soviet first strike — a massive barrage of nuclear missiles. Muskie urged that Nixon and Laird have a "meeting of minds" to clarify whether they agree on Soviet intentions and objectives. IN A SENATE speech yesterday, Muskie noted the Russians might interpret the President's "safeguard" system as being a step toward America's first-strike capability. "Secretary Laird refers to Safeguard as a 'building block for peace,' painting the system as not being provocative — a judgment that strikes me as illogical and it- lusory," Muskie said. Former vice president Hubert Humphrey, meanwhile, said the administration's public assessment of Soviet plans would stimulate the arms race and jeopardize prospects for U.S.-Russian negotiations. Speaking at a dinner in honor of William C. Foster, former U.S. disarmament director, Humphrey urged the administration to avoid "raising specters of massive Soviet strategic commitments until we have determined through direct talks their actual willingness or unwillingness to decelerate the arms race." "THEN WE will not have to speculate on such critical matters," the former vice president said. "We will know." Muskie said the administration may intend Safeguard "as a blunt challenge to the Soviets to come to the bargaining table and negotiate over strategic weapons, or else the United States will heat up the arms race, counting on our superior technology to protect us if negotiations fail. "I cannot believe that this kind of bluster would have any rational justification, and I must caution the Senate and the country that such diplomacy is the very essence of provocation." Up to now, he said, the administration's case has been "utterly unconvincing, shedding not light but shadow on the most fundamental aspects of the program."- Traiiic accidents iatal to Scottsdale boy, Tucson girl A 12-year-old Scottsdale youth died of injuries suffered in a motorbike accident last month and a 5-year-old Tucson girl died when she was run over by a bus yesterday, officers reported. Dead are Donald E. Masters, 12, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Masters, 7916 E. Moreland, Scottsdale, and Lucinda Ann Sanchez, 5, daugh- BJOGRAPHY OF LBJ NEW YORK (UPI) - Sam Houston Johnson, brother of former President Lyndon Johnson, will write a biography of his brother which will be published, in hook form after its serialization in a national magazine, it was disclosed yesterday, ter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sanchez, Tucson. 150 Traffic Deaths in 1969 140 Died Same Period 1968 Scottsdale investigators said Masters died yesterday in Scottsdale Baptist Hospital. He was admitted to the hospital March 28 with facial injuries suffered when his motorbike flipped over on him while he was riding in the Indian Bend Wash behind Yavapai School. According to police, the youth underwent plastic sur- ery on his lips and chin the day of the accident. During the surgery, police said they were told, his heart stopped, but he was revived by hospital personnel. t Investigators said Masters was placed in the intensive care ward at the hospital and responded to treatment. Tuesday, he had recovered sufficiently to walk around his hospital room, but later in the day suffered a relapse. An autopsy was ordered by Scottsdale Justice of the Peace Harold Holcomb. Masters' death will not be added to the highway toll be- cause the accident occurred on private property, officers said. Tucson police said the Sanchez child was leaving a Tucson Rapid Transit bus at 17th Street and Second Avenue when she slipped or fell to the ground and was run over by the rear wheels as the bus pulled away. Officers identified the bus driver as Kenneth Elvin Fuller, 55, Tucson. FOR PEOPLE WHO CARE THE VIUAtt ftftf EN NURSING HOME 4W* W. 141* tt.
