Egyptian Gunners Rout Israeli Flight By United Press International An Israeli plane attempted to fly over Suez City today but was driven back by Egyptian antiaircraft fire, Suez authorities reported. The announcement said the plane flew in from the Sinai Desert at 12:45 p.m. but withdrew when the Suez City defenders fired three rounds of antiaircraft fire. It was Suez City where Israeli planes knocked out an estimated 75 per cent of Egypt's oil refining capacity last fall. In another incident indicative of the Middle East unrest since the June War, Israeli security officials Wednesday night dynamited the home of an El Fatah terrorist leader in Jerusalem. It was the first time retaliation against sabotage was taken in Jerusalem. Israeli oficials said Kamal Nimmer, an engineer, was arrested at home Sunday. They said Nimmer and another El Fatah leader, William Najiz, said they took part in the killing of a watchman last week at a Ghosh supply depot. Three Arab students and an Israeli student who rented rooms in Nimmer's home were allowed to remove their belongings. But Nimmer's possessions were blown up inside the house. Windows in the area were broken by the explosion and Mayor Teddy KoHek said the city would repair the damage at once. The Israeli Foreign Ministry denied Wednesday the United States bad pressured Israel to forego the principle of direct talks with the Arabs to settle the Middle East crisis. This was in response to a report from Cairo that the United States had given Egypt a copy of a letter from Secretary of State Dean Rusk to Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban asking Israel to forego direct talks. "No weight should be given to reports emanating from Arab capitals," the spokesman said. It is inconceivable that the State Department would give the contents of a letter to a government to another government." In Cairo, Egypt's chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Abdel Moneim Riad, was sworn in Wednesday as the Arab League's assistant secretary general for military affairs. The Arab League is a loose federation of 14 Arab states that seeks unity of action among them. President Julius Neyerere of Tanzania wound up an official visit to Cairo Wednesday. He and President Gamal Abdel Nasser issued a joint commu- nique criticizing Israel's "expansionist policy endangering peace in the Middle East." In Moscow, the official Comm u n i s t Party newspaper Pravda said today the West invented a Middle East vacuum to justify its own intervention in the area. "The imperialists are attracted by the tremendous oil reserves," Pravda said. "This probably explains London's and Washington's hysterical cries about the vacuum which, as they allege, may be filled by Communist countries, especially the Soviet Union." Molotov Cocktail Believed Prank The explosion of a Molotov cocktail bomb on the grounds of St. Peter Paul School, N. Olsen Ave. and E. Adams St., today was classified by city officials as an apparent teen-age prank. Witnesses told firemen that the bomb was thrown last night from a passing car apparently containing high school students. Firemen, who quickly extinguished the burning device about 8 p.m., said no damage was caused to school property. They said the bomb probably was filled with kerosene. Hurry!

(Citizen Photo by Bill Hopkins) Schmid's Kidney Offer Turned Down PHOENIX (AP) - Doctors have ruled against transplanting a kidney offered by convicted murderer Charles Schmid Jr. into a seriously ill Phoenix woman. Doctors for Mrs. Maria Huerta said yesterday that such a transplant would be impossible because past operations of that type have shown that the kidney must be donated by a close relative. News that Schmid, under death penalty for the slayings of Alleen Ptowe and sisters Wendy and Gretchen Fritz, al! of Tucson, offered to donate a kidney, was carried in a Phoenix newspaper yesterday. The Phoenix Gazette said Schmid's father contacted the paper Tuesday to say his son wanted to give one o'f his kidneys to Mrs. Huerta. "He is sincere," the father said. "He told me to get in touch with jou, that he's ready to donate one of his kidneys to Mrs. Huerta." Meanwhile, members of Phoenix's Mexican-American community have reportedly raised ;i,000 of the $5,000 needed to buy a kidney machine for the woman. Schmid, in death row at the Two Convicted Of Drunk Driving Arnold Parra Jr., 22, of 1732 W. Hegel St., and James Douglas Robertson, 62, Beaumont, Calif., were each fined $100 and sentenced to 10 days in jail yesterday on charges of drunken driving. Parra appeared before City Magistrate Mario Cota-Robles and Robertson was tried by Justice of the Peace Clark Johnson. i v (·»· men oBr-rmi tan w tmt tANIEL/S ·^O?* Quality Jetvetery v^B*"M tim ». ·»*4- * ;'sr-'-zv : ~; : · -ItM** WELL-TIMED for Any Occasion byBULOVAandACCUTRON Hers Is modern \ dramand, $39.35 Hl*Vios 1 diamond ' rfiol, 17 jewets '''" '* * ,""«"/ /Hers TOJ 4 diamonds^ r 17 TS,tt x Accutfojt Spaceview has transf) Just say "CHARGE IT"...Use our Convenient "Payment Plan' i nrai»i tr tent* AN CMIT * CMST ' a CON CENTER-ON THE MALL 21 E CONGRESS ST, Downtown SOUTHGATE SHOPPING CENTER We Honor Valley Bank Credit Cards state prison, has had his execution date stayed pending the outcome of two appeals he has filed. ···FREE ESTIMATES COMPLETE LK£ ALUMINUM PRODUCTS FOR HOMES AKD TRAILERS BANKFMANCMG Modern-Air Aluminum M. 623-9314 or 793-8143 Sun. -It Open 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM ··SEHABLAESPANOL *J SENIOR CITIZENS NO SERVICE CHARGE CHECKING ACCOUNTS BANK" TUCSON CECIL CAVER'S CARLOAD r «y^?*£'^' # 3 J2AJ I :TMS^ 'M FRIDAY SATURDAY SUNDAY We have got - Modd Size, ] Color, Price for you.
