After meeting, Vance says he rejects idea that original Soviet response to proposals will stand. [VANCE - says proposal fair and is different from others, as it gets to heart of arms control, not just putting ceilings on development or numbers] [CARTER - administration determined to have friendship with USSR and arms reductions, if at all possible.] Carter urges Sovs. to make counterproposals so they can be dealt with at talks in Geneva in May.
REPORTER: Hal Walker
