Monday, September 1$, 1974 HOPE (AUK.) stAtt Page five Jews,, Arabs preparing for religious holidays By The Associated Press Israelis prepared today to celebrate the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, while the Arabs made preparations for the the month-long Moslem fast of Ramadan. The Arabs used the holiday period last year to mobilize their armies and then attacked Israel on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement that ends Rosh Hashanah and is the holiest of Jewish holidays. No such attack is expected this year, but the Israeli military command ordered stringent security precautions and intensifed the alert along Israel's borders. Rosh Hashanah, which starts at sundown, is a 10-day period of introspection and prayer. Ramadan begins early Tuesday. During the month Moslems abstain from food, drink and sexual relations during daylight hours and feast all night. They believe that during Ramadan 1,393 years ago the angel Gabriel imparted to Mohammed the wisdom of the Koran. On Sunday, the Israeli air force attacked villages in southeast Lebanon for the first time in five Weeks. The Israeli military command said its jets made two 10-minute raids on concentrations of Arab terrorists around Ml. Hertnon. It reported that all the planes returned safely. Lebanese officials said six villages were hit, the mayor of one was killed and two other ci' vilians were-wounded. Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin returned from Washington and said his talks with President Ford and Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger produced satisfactory results "for the immediate and long-range strengthening of Israel." In an interview taped for NBC's "Meet the Press" before he left the United States, Rabin said Israel could go along with some "territorial compromises" but would never go back to its boundaries prior to the 1967 war. "We want to have secure, to be more specific, defensible boundaries," he declared. In Cairo, Egyptian sources said that after months of bitterness Egypt has abandoned indefinitely its projected merger with Libya. Relations have steadily deteriorated between the two nations. Recently both governments agreed to tone down their war of words, but Libya has continued to allude to Egypt in urging Arab youth to overthrow any regime that links itself to the United States. In another development the Beirut newspaper Al Anwar said Saudi Arabia is buying nearly $700 million worth of arms from various foreign countries to help Egypt make up for its losses in the war last October. It said deals already have been made with several European countries, and others are being negotiated with the United States (i Britain and Belgium. School controversy in Boston calms down By TERRY RYAN Associated Press Writer BOSTON (AP) — About 110 black children walked quietly off school buses today into South Boston High School, scene of antibusing demonstrations last week during the first two days of court-ordered school integration. "Attendance is up. Everything is peaceful," said police Supt. Joseph Jordan. A handful of the 1,031 assigned white pupils arrived at the school today. On Friday, 32 white pupils and 25 of the 380 assigned black pupils attended classes. Elsewhere in the city, schools opened this morning without any reported incidents. Police said "substantially more than the 400 police assigned to South Boston Friday" would be put on the streets today in the neighborhood, which has put up most of the resistance so far to having black children attend previously all- white schools. Antibusing leaders vowed to continue their boycott, but city and state officials said they expected progress in the integration program. About a third of public school students were absent when classes opened last Thursday and Friday under the federal order to integrate through busing. School buses were stoned and police lined bus routes to protect black children coming into one section of the city. Despite the troubles, school Fulbright statement expected WASHINGTON (AP) - A statement may come today or Tuesday from Sen. J. W. Fillbright, D-Ark., on whether he will accept nomination as U.S. ambassador to Great Britain. Fulbright said Saturday he had not had time to consider such a nomination yet, but said he probably would make a statement this week. The nomination has not been offered officially yet. Fulbright declined to confirm it had been extended. However, it is widely reported here that Ford has asked Fulbright to consider the job. Fulbright made the remarks as he returned to Washington after leading a congressionial delegation on a 12-day trip to China. In a prepared statement, Ful- bntjht and other members of the congressional delegation saul the trip had helped to strengthen ties between the United States and China. Both Fulbright and Sen. Hubert Humphrey, D-Minn., said Llit-} were unable to meet with Chinese Premier Chou En-lai because he was ill. They said ihev did not know how serious ilic illness was. officials said teaching was going on in all schools. Attendance was normal in some areas and there were no problems reported in the classrooms. A rally against busing drew hundreds of cars on Sunday in South Boston, the middle class, mostly Irish Catholic area where the boycott was most effective. Police said Sunday they wouldn't allow a South Boston "mothers march" planned today, because of potential for violence. Mayor White last week ordered that persons gathered near schools in groups of more than three be arrested. Twenty- one persons were arrested, two policemen were injured and 11 black children were hurt, none seriously, in bus stonings. One bus carrying white students was hit with stones thrown by black youths. The busing plan was ordered in June by a federal judge who ruled the Boston School Committee had "intentionally segrer gated schools at all levels." He ordered cross busing of 18,200 of the school system's 94,000 pupils and assigned 27,000 others to new schools.

Former hospital now home Diego Suarez NEW YORK (AP) - Diego Suarez, 86, architect and former minister counsel to the Colombia Embassy in Washington, died Saturday at his home. Suarez, born in Bogota, served in Washington from 1948-1952. He designed the Vizcaya Gardens in Miami. BREESE, 111. (AP) — Charles Walter has to carry 10 keys to his home. "Those are the vital ones that we use," he said. "I'd say there are 10 or 15 pounds more of them that we don't use." Walter, 34, his wife, Loretta, and their seven children share a 107-room, 20-bath home complete with elevator, dumbwaiter, two acres of lawn, 500 feet of hedges, a laundry house, a tunnel, a kitchen big enough to feed more than 100 persons, parking for 20 and a delivery room, which is occupied by Mrs. Walter's mother. Their home used to be a hospital. Until last year they lived in a house, ran a ceramics business from it and felt cramped. One day they were out driving and "happened to glance by this way as we were looking for a bigger place." A new hospital had been built and Breese was about to demolish the old one, built in 1884. A for sale sign hung out front amj the Walters . bought it t£ $60,000. Mrs. Walter said that for the price they couldn't have gotten a much smaller house, let alone 107 rooms. "Who could build a 20-room house for that?" she asked. "With an elevator?" her husband added. "We use every room in the building, one way or another," Walter said. His basement is jammed with ceramics equipment.

Finding switches for hall lights, or a fuse box, can be a challenge. MOSCOW (AP) - Goon squads with bulldozers and trucks broke up an unauthorized outdoor exhibit of contemporary Soviet abstract art< destroyed the paintings, arrested a number of the artists and spectators and roughed up Americans and others in the crowd. Organizers of the exhibit sent a protest to the central committee of the Communist party, and the United Stales Embassy said it Was protesting Sunday's attacks on American correspondents and a diplomat. Some 500 spectators, including foreign diplomats and reporters, were watching as about 20 artists began setting up the exhibit in a muddy vacant lot about noon Sunday. Suddenly four bulldozers roared down the field toward the crowd, followed by squads of toughs and dump trucks. As the crowd ran, the canvases were crushed or thrown into the mud-filled dump trucks. Officials later said the paintings were burned. The artists included Oskar Rabin, Vladimir Nemykhin, Lydia Masterovka and others whose abstract art does not conform to the realistic, photographic style prescribed by the Soviet Communist party. As the crowd of men, women and children fled, water trucks drove by spraying them. The squads of young men pummcled the artists and foreign correspondents, but there were no reports of serious in juries. Artists and spectators were driven away in police vans, and at least eight persons were known to be in custody Sunday night. One gang shoved New York Times correspondent Christopher Wren's camera into his face, chipping a tooth, as he was photographing the water trucks. Then two men grabbed him and another one punched him in the stomach. Lynne Olson of The Associated Press tried to help Wren, and a policeman knocked her to the ground with a blow in the stomach. U.S. Consul Leonard Willems was shoved hard by another tough. A woman scurried about yelling: 'foreigners! Diplomats! Keportr-s! They're all spies!" "She's right, you know," one of the toughs commented to a newsman. Greenland, with an area of 840,000 square miles, is the world's largest island. family center BOON. HERVEY SQUARE HOPE,ARK.
