While most of the state had clear skies, a few isolated patches of mid and high level clouds dotted North Central and Southeast Texas. A few low clouds drifted across the coastal bend area. Early morning temperatures dropped in the 40s in the mountain area of the Big Bend, while readings in the 40s and 50s prevailed across the Panhandle, South Plains and North Texas areas. Readings in the 50s and 60s were common across South Texas. Overnight temperatures ranged from 41 at Marfa to 70 at Corpus Christi. The National Weather Service said conditions should be fair and mild through Wednesday. Submarines to be scuttled to comply with SALT treaty WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan, in a complex decision, will order the destruction of two U.S. nuclear submarines to keep the United States within the limits of the controversial 1979 SALT II treaty with the Soviet Union, two U.S. officials saici. This will clear the way for a new Trident submarine with 24 missiles to begin sea trials next month without undercutting the unratified accord. "He's going that extra mile." an official, who demanded anonymity, said Monday. He said the two Poseidon submarines, with 16 multiple- warhead missiles each, \vould be taken out of the U.S. nuclear fleet promptly and then destroyed over the next six months. However, Reagan also has concluded it would be "militarily beneficial" to allow the treaty limits to be exceeded as new nuclear weapons become available toward the end of the year, another official said. But, the official said, if the Soviets comply with the treaty, the limits will be maintained. In two reports to Congress, the president has accused the Soviets of violating the agreement and other arms control ac- cords. The accusations have been denied repeatedlv by Moscow, which suggests changes in Soviet practices or in Reagan's interpretation of them are unlikely. Also, the official said, the president intends to accelerate weapons programs not covered by the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty. The decision, contained in a National Security Council memorandum, was described as "tentative" in the sense that Reagan was sending two envoys to consult with allies in Asia and Western Europe, and will also solicit the views of Congress before making a formal announcement. The U.S. total of multiple- warhead missiles now stands at 1,198, just two below the limit set in the treaty signed by then- President Carter and the late Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev in Vienna. It was the last major arms control agreement by the two superpowers, setting limits on various categories of long-range nuclear weapons. Reagan denounced the pact in his campaign for the presidency in 1980 as "fatally flawed." Bombing suspects may be brothers BERLIN (AP) - A Palestinian arrested in connection with the nightclub bombing that killed an American soldier has been Identified as the brother of a man accused in Britain of trying to bomb an Israeli airliner, West Berlin officials said Tuesday. The suspect in the April 5 bombing of a discotheque in West Berlin, who was arrested Friday, was identified by Justice Ministry spokesman Walter Neuhaus as Ahmed Nawaf Man- surHasi. The nighclub bombing in West Berlin killed a 21-year-old U.S. Army sergeant and a 28-year-old Turkish woman, and injured 230 others, 63 of them Americans. U.S. officials have said they had proof that Libya was responsible for the attack, and in retaliation U.S. warplanes attacked Libya last Tuesday. Neuhaus said the suspect in the Berlin bombing is the 36- year-old brother of a man identified by Scotland Yard as Nezar Hindawi, who was to appear in a London court Tuesday in connection with last week's attempted bombing of an El Al airliner. A West German security source told The Associated Press on Monday that the arrest of the disco bombing suspect "came through the London case." "It seems to be a hot tip that the two cases are connected, but we are still investigating this," said the source, who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity. Neuhaus said Hasl was born in Jordan arid has been living in the Tempelhof area of West Berlin, where police arrested him. Has! can be held indefinitely until police decide whether to press charges. Hindawi, 35, also was arrested on Friday, a day after his Irish girlfriend was stopped by El Al security guards at Heathrow Airport as she tried to board a Tel Aviv-bound jumbo jet with a bomb hidden in her bag. Scotland Yard said the woman did not know she was carrying a bomb, and she was released after police questioned her. West Berlin sources who declined to be Identified said Monday they suspect the surnames of the two men^differed on their Identity documents because the papers carried by the man in London may be false. Manfred Ganschow, the West Berlin police official heading the investigation into the bombing, said the man arrested in Berlin had an identification card saying he was a "stateless Palestinian refugee." Ganschow said the man was formally booked Sunday after about 100 witnesses to the bombing saw him in police lineups. It was the first arrest reported in the investigation by a special 100-member commission of West Berlin and U.S. military police. Oil producers given predictions for future DALLAS (AP) — Imagine a world where big cars are popular again, highway travel is in and 70-mph speed limits are once more in vogue. Those were a few of the possibilities mentioned in fun at a meeting Monday of people who do little jesting these days — oil producers. But such appealing aspects of the American dream can only be short-lived, the industry officials cautioned. Robert Anderson, former chairman and chief executive officer for Atlantic Richfield Co. in Los Angeles, joked that new, bigger cars ought to have a sticker warning of possible "major changes in fuel costs." Anderson was among the industry experts speaking at a meeting Monday of more than 600 producers with the American Petroleum Institute's production division. "The biggest mistake is the jubilation (in thinking) cheap oil forever more," Anderson said. "...This hiatus is two to three years at the most." Americans leaving Beirut BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) The few Americans remaining in kidnap-plagued west Beirut gathered under heavy guard early Tuesday to evacuate their homes. Heavily armed militiamen of Druse leader Walid Jumblatt's Progressive Socialist Party guarded the seaside Ein Mreissieh boulevard as American evacuees began trickling in at first light. Druse sharpshooters manned rooftops overlooking all approaches to the assembly area, which also was cordoned off by Druse militia checkpoints. Two police minibuses and six jeeps were parked in the area, apparently to transfer the Americans to Christian east Beirut. Reporters and photographers were banned from the area. They were told that the precautions were taken at the request of U.S. ambassador Reginald Bartholomew. Ned Simes, president and chief executive officer of Diamond M Co. and president of the International Association of Drilling Contractors, predicted, "Fuel consumption in the U.S. this summer is going to be horrendous." He said two states already are talking about raising their 55 mph speed limits. Another executive, Constantino Nicandros, president of Con- oco Inc.'s petroleum operations in Houston, painted three possible scenarios for the world oil market. But no matter the outcome, "we will surely have considerable volatility," he said. "Realistically, we can't bank on a stable environment." Nicandros' most extreme scenario is one in which prices drop to $5 or $8 a barrel, sparking renewed demand and kicking off another flurry of production reminiscent to that which followed the Arab oil embargo in the 1970s.
