PS" 235 FORT LAUDERDALE .EVS. Tiief.. June 13. 196.' What Is Future Of Palestine Liberation Forces? BEIRUT, Lebanon. Ifl The Arab defeat in the Middle East war leaves a big question mark over the future of the Palestine Liberation Organization and its firebrand leader leftist Ahemd Shukairy. Shukairy narrowly escaped capture by Israeli forces in Jerusalem and many of his "Liberation Army" are now prisoners of the Israelis. "We will wipe Israel off the face of the map and no Jew will survive," Shukairy declared two days before the war broke out June 5. He vowed to lead the vanguard of his troops into the Israeli sector of Jerusalem and set up a "purely Arab government'' there for all of Palestine. The 60-year-old former lawyer was seen briefly in Amman and Damscus in the last stages of the fighting wearing a khaki battle uniform. Persons who saw him said he looked fatigued and dejected. His army of 15,000 guerrillas had moved into some of the Sinai and Gaza Strip positions evacuated by the U.N. Emergency force before the fighting began. Several thousand of them are believed to be in Is raeli hands with most of their arms and equipment. ' Most of the equipment for Shukairy's force came from the Soviet bloc and Red China, and he boasted that he had the support of the Chinese leaders. Egypt and Syria gave him strong support, but Jordan and other pro-Western Arab countries objected to his ultra-leftist leanings and his campaign to overthrow King Hussein of Jordan. Jordan never allowed the Liberation Army to operate on its territory, which would have been the logical springboard for an attack on Israel. Last December, the Jordanian government ordered Shukairy to close his office in the Jordanian sector of Jerusalem. Shukairy and Hussein made up publicly when the king signed a defense alliance with Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, but the Israeli victory ended that honeymoon. For months there have been reports of internal conflict within the Palestine Liberation Organization, particularly between Shukairy and younger Palestinians who objected to his autocratic leadership. Shukairy conferred in Beirut yesterday with President Charles Helou of Lebanon and called a news conference today. A few hours later he canceled it. The newspaper Al Anwar said he called off the conference because he had to go to Damascus, but sources close to the Palestine Liberation organization said "certain trends" within the movement persuaded Shukairy to cancel his appearance.

Kirk Veto On Fund Bill Seen (Continued from Page One) expenditures over anticipated revenue goes to the governor, "there will be no appropriations act in this session of the legislature." The House GOP minority leader stated: "When you vote for this conference committee report, you are voting for new taxes. This is an exhorbitant appropriations act." Reed pointed out that the proposed spending is one-half billion dollars more than was appropriated in the last session of the legislature in 1965. The Boca Raton representative cited there were no Republicans on either the House or Senate Conference Committees. Rep. Ray C. Osborne, R-St. Petersburg, pointed out that the proposed budget for the next two years represents a 41 per cent increase over the spending for the biennium which ends June 30. FIGURES COMPARED Osborne compared this proposed spending increase to the projection that the state's popu lation will go up only 4.7 during the same two-year period. The Democratic strategy is aimed at attempting to force Kirk into a line item veto procedure rather than disapproving the entire bill. Most sources here believe the governor will veto the entire bill and the legislature will start PROVINCES MENACED Officials said there were at least five North Vietnamese divisions in addition to regular Viet Cong forces menacing South Vietnam's northern provinces.

(UPI) -Foreign ministers of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries met today and discussed the "terrible threat" to peace caused by East-West friction and worsened by the Middle East war. Opening the session, Premier and Foreign Minister Pierre Werner of host Luxembourg said the Arab-Israeli war and the U.S.-Soviet confrontation it almost involved proved that peace today is "perilously unstable." He said in the face of "this terrible threat we should once again demonstrate our solidarity and unity by both word and deed." Solidarity of the great western alliance appeared loosened by France's military withdrawal from NATO's uni fied forces. Danish Premier Jens Otto Krag, NATO president, said in opening the session that now was no time to weaken the alliance's military "peace- stabilizing" force. EYE ON RUSSIA The Middle East war crept into what was originally intend ed to be a session devoted to de-emphasizing the military as pects of NATO. The tone of the two-dav meeting was set vester- 'j I o - - 1 f udy oy oecreiaiy ueiierai man-lio Brosio. The Italian diplomat spoke of a "hardening" of the Soviet attitude and ruled out any quick easing of East-West tension. Brosio said the Soviet Union has shown it "does not want a direct conflict with the United States and this is good." But he added, "It (the Soviet Union) has sided and is still siding with the Arab countries in what proved to be an adventurous and risky policy." j U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk arrived last night and said the meeting also would "concern the security and well-being of NATO itself. ' France was expected to push its attitude that the alliance should turn from a military and defense organization to a political and diplomatic union.

Bennett told the Senate at the outset of censure proceedings the Ethics Committee's estimate was on the "conservative side" and did not include many expenditures which fell within a "gray area." "Wherever there was a doubt, we gave the benefit to Sen. Dodd," Bennett said. Dodd's chief Senate defender, Democratic whip Russell B. Long, planned to try to kill the censure charge by substituting a proposal calling for a Senate code of ethics. In its report to the Senate, the Ethics Committee said Dodd diverted at least $116,083 in testimonial funds to his own personal use and double-billed the Senate and private organizations for travel expenses on seven occasions. edly went there to find out why Russia had been unable to avert an Arab defeat in the war.

One thing was already clear beyond doubt that Russia will continue backing the Arabs, though she may alter priorities among her allies in the area. In ostensibly backing an Arab oil threat to the West, however, Russia has been taken aback by authoritative statements from the West that it is prepared for the emergency and may shift oil purchases from the Middle East altogether. FSB Prober Says Mafia In Broward (Continued from Page One) two teen-agers make a plea for help. Nancy Atherton ' and Bill Owen from Nova High School's Keyette and Key Club asked the commission to help organize a program within county high schools. The proposal would include a program designed to tell teen agers about the dangers of narcotics, particularly marijuana. miss Atnerton requested a "Project Aware" to be directed at teen-age girls. A similar program, sponsored by the com mission and The News, gives information to help reduce crime, and tells ways in which a housewife can protect herself if attacked. Both Miss Atherton and Owen said the narcotic problem is becoming critical inside area schools. The commission was asked to help coordinate the program planned by the teenagers and provide speakers to go from school to school with films and exhibits. Both students believe the high schoolers themselves will help with the problem once they learn of its dangers. The commission elected eight new members to the board of directors. They are Nancy Peggs, Adalide Ware, Mrs. Nor ma Nusbaum and Joe Myrick. Others are Dick Dody and his wife Bunny, Ellis Parker and Pat Burnes. The commission has two more openings on the board to fill.' War Victory Expensive For Israel (Continued from Page One) manders and soldiers fell," he said. In the areas that Israeli forces did take, long range planning went ahead. Informed sources said Israel will pay the subsidies that Britain and the United States once spent to support now occupied parts of Jordan and that Egypt spent to support the Gaza Strip now under Israeli control. The conquest was reported to have brought more than two million Arabs under Israeli control, 700,000 alone in formerly Egyptian-controlled areas. Informed sources said Israel hopes U.N. relief will continue going to Sinai Arabs. The million Arabs in occupied Jordan form a serious money problem for Jerusalem, the sources said. They said Israel hopes to recoup some losses by increased tourist dollars earned in opening Jerusalem's old sector, Bethlehem and Hebron to Israeli travel routes. Mercy Deaths Defended (Continued from Page 1) urn on medicine and religion, said: "When death is imminent and inevitable, it is neither scientific nor humane to prolong agony without just cause." Modern methods of resuscitation "are most decidedly out of place, when disease or accident has brought to an end the usefulness of the body," he said. Physicians are faced with medical, moral and legal dilemmas over questions of when to preserve life. For example, Dr. Ayd said legal action is needed for a modern definition of death. Some authorities say a cessation of brain activity should be considered death while others believe the last heartbeat is, he said. King Rips High Court On Contempt Ruling ATLANTA, Ga. W called Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a u.b. supreme court ruling upholding his contempt of court on-viction a "sinister' precedent" which could "break the back of the nonviolent movement." He said the same device was used early in the century to prevent formation of labor unions and break strikes. He added that it gave license to racists at a time when Negroes "are desperately in need of orderly channels for redress." The ruling yesterday said King and seven other Negro leaders had no constitutional right to ignore all procedures of law in the Birmingham, Ala., demonstrations in 1963, At that time the eight were sentenced to five days in jail and fined $50 for criminal contempt. They had violated an injunction forbidding them to hold desegregation marches on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. "I have no regrets about the course which we followed," King said, "but one must not overlook the sinister precedent established by this ruling." 3d DR. KING
