A-freeze campaign moves to push kindred candidates

More than 500 delegates to the fourth annual conference of the National Nuclear Weapons Freeze campaign committed themselves to elect pro-freeze candidates in next year's national elections with the establishment of a political-action committee.

They also agreed to demand that Congress cut funding for nuclear weapons testing and deployments rather than pass a resolution asking President Reagan to negotiate a freeze with the Soviet Union, as they had earlier.

The delegates also adopted a resolution designed as a bridge between the American and European antinuclear movements that calls for a worldwide freeze and the withdrawal of all nuclear missiles from foreign territory.
