(Studio) Arms race not over between Russia and United States although major point at summit talks between Brezhnev and Nixon to limit nuclear arms. Continued arms race emphasized at Senator confirmation hearing by new Defense Secretary designate James Schlesinger.
REPORTER: Howard K. Smith

(Capitol Hill) Schlesinger tells Armed Services Committee NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) must remain strong to ward off possible foes. [SCHLESINGER - says own troops shouldn't be reduced until same action from Sovs. occurs.] [Senator Barry GOLDWATER - asks if Schlesinger believes Sovs. reduced arms in last year] [SCHLESINGER - replies no. Sovs. have aggressive program. United States must keep up with arms race to keep balance.] Schlesinger will probably have easy confirmation.
