    SYNOPSIS: British Prime Minister Edward Heath spent Saturday relaxing in Bermuda as final preparations for Monday's summit meeting with President Nixon. Mr Heath had arrived the night before from Ottawa, where he had talks with Canadian Premier Pierre Trudeau. During the morning, the Prime Minister was a guest of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club for drinks.

    Later in the morning, Mr Heath went aboard the Royal Navy's guided missile destroyer, "H.M.S. Glamorgan" for an informal lunch. The Anglo-American summit is expected to be dominated by the international monetary crisis, but political observers are speculating that the leaders will also be discussing the Indo-Pakistan developments, and the Middle East situation as well as European economic, political and security questions.
