William F.

The president now has discretionary authority to accept or reject such recommendations. The Senate Pittance Committee wrote the restrictive amendment, sponsored by Sen. Robert S. Kerr (D-Okla), into a bill to extend the Reciprocal Trade Agreements law for, three more yeaVs. This 24- year-old law .gives the president authority to negotiate mutual trade toncessions with other nations. Knowland's announcement ap parently closed administration ranks on a proposal which Secretary of Commerce Weeks said completely emasculates the bill. Previously, Knowland had opposed the administration's^ request lor a' five-year extension of the trade program, as voted by the House. • Sen. .Lyndon B.

Smalhers (D- Fla), who cast the deciding x ballol when the committee voted.8-7 to put the amendment in the bill, said in a separate interview he thinks the Senate will scuttle the provision. Sen.

Rebels Still 29 Americans By BOB CLARK "GUANTANAMO, Cuba *-U.S. officials were increasingly -irritated today because Fidel Cas tro's rebels still held 29 American servicemen after freeing the last civilian hostage. C. Allen Stewart, deputy director of the State Department's Middle American affairs division, flew from Washington to Havana Friday to confer with Park Wol lam, U.S. consul at Santiago who has been negotiating with the rebels. There was no indication of whether they had devised any new plan to speed release of the sailors and Marines, seized by rebels two weeks ago .to dramatize their fight against President Fulgencio Batis ta's regime. Wollam said the rugged country was slowing up the movement of the servicemen to points where a U.S. Navy helicopter could pick them up.' Raul Castro, Fidel's brother, has been quoted as saying he regarded the captives as an efficient means of halting Cuban .army attacks against his men. The army bas curtailed its offensive for fear of harming the Americans.

He said the preliminary work on the subdivision will be started in early fall with the thought of com pleting it in early spring—but for 90 lots only, inasmuch'as it is not a practice in so large an operation to attempt to offer the lots at one time. He has received from the county, he said, approval of a preliminary plat of the north tract. The name chosen for it is "River Aire Subdivision."
