    "Arriving at Saint Simons Island off the Georgia coast, Mr. Carter said he's aware of reports that the Russians may now be aiming to overtake the United States in the arms race, rather than just being content with matching our strength. The President-elect said he'd been getting C.I.A. briefings on the subjects."



    "Their rate of growth for military strength compared to ours has probably been fairly substantial, but we are still far stronger than they are in military strength."



    "Harold Brown, Carter's designated Defence Secretary, said he would be concerned if the level of U.S. arms spending continues to drop while Soviet spending rises."
