The spokesman said two or three shots were fired about 1:15 a.m. The soldier, wounded in the arm and left side, was taken by a British military ambulance to East Berlin, the spokesman said. The incident occurred a few hours before Red army units were to parade before the memorial in honor of the 53rd anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. The official East German news agency, in a brief dispatch that called the incident "an unheard-of provocation," said officials did not know who fired the shots. Officials in the Soviet Embassy in East Berlin lodged a "decisive protest with the British military administration in West Berln and demanded the necessary measures for the immediate discovery and serious pun­ ishment of the criminals," the agency said. The memorial to Russian soldiers in World War I is in the British sector just inside West Berlin, near the Brandenburg gate. Its guard contingent is 18 men who have a barracks just behind the monument. Two soldiers stand guard 24 hours a day. "Prelude -against Bolshevism" and "Destroy the Red corruption" were smeared in red and white paint in a park resit area several hundred yards from the monument. A painted arrow pointed in tlhe direction of the memorial through the park woods. The paint appeared to be fresh. Police said leaflets found in the park called for "resistance against selling out Germany." The leaflets were signed by the "European Liberation Front," police said. A British spokesman said: "I can confirm that at approximately at 1:10 a.m. on 7 November shots were fired in the Tax Study Group's Eyes on Calendar DES MOINES (AP) - Sixteen Iowa legislators, their eyes on the calendar but the elections safely behind them, are getting down to the nitty-gritty of answering the public clamor for tax reform and relief from spiraling local property tax levies. The 16-member joint Taxation Study Committee was created by the 1970 legislature to study Iowa's fax structure, specifically with a view to easing the burden now placed on property taxes for financing schools and other local governmental services. The resolution creating the committee directed it to present its proposals to the first session of Iowa's newly elected 64th General Assembly, which convenes in January. The" committee started to work in July almost as soon as the resolution creating ilt took effect. Members held a series of public hearings to get citizens' view on itheir tax troubles, the complaints of various special interest groups who feel they are unfairly treated under the present tax structure, and talked at lengtih with numerous state officials and representatives of state departments, boards and agencies. Then, because taxes are always a potentially costly political issue and are an especially touchy subject in an election year, the committee by tacit agreement coasted past last Tuesday's general election without getting down to specific proposals. Now, with the opening of the legislature less than two months away, State Sen. Ralph W. Potter, R-Marion, chairman of the committee, has set two-day sessions every week in an attempt to sifit through the enormous Taxes See Page 7 Beautiful White is beautiful, thinks this albino koala, found sitting by itself in the middle of a road near Toowoomba, Australia, The. rare animal was taken to a sanctuary where it joined, among others, an albino emu, an albino anteater and an albino squirrel. U.S. Snubs Soviet Fete WASHINGTON (AP) - Protesting Russian detention of two U.S. generals, Washington officials are boycotting this year's Soviet national aniversary celebrationis—reportedly on orders of President Nixon. The diplomatic snub means American ambassadors are staying away from the caviar- and-vodka parties given by the Soviets in many capitals, though they may send lower- ranking U.S. diplomats if they choose. Coupled with U.S. tit-forfait expulsion of a Soviet newsman Friday, the snub- marks a further deterioration of relations between the two superpowers. In Washington, the highest U.S. representative allowed to attend the anual Soviet embas­ sy gala Friday night was Adolph Dubs, State Department Soviet affairs officer. But the official boycott didn't hinder three former U.S. ambassadors to Moscow. Among 600 guests at a reception given by Soviet Ambassador Anatoliy Dobrynin were W. Averell Harriman, former top U.S. negotiator at the Paris peace talks, and Soviet experts Foy Kohler and Llewellyn Thompson. The three formerly represented the United States in Moscow. Last year the Nixon administration was represented at the celebration by two Cabinet members—Secretary of Transportation John Volpe and Secretary of Interior Walter J. Hickel. •Ok Chicago dentist Dr. Max D ™1\\ L. Bramer carries a port- AA1Jl 9 able office in his car in order to make house calls on handicapped persons who are unable to come to him.

'1 ...1 I V3W After the State Department earlier Friday had indicated it would restrict its representation at the Soviet party to a deputy assistant secretary, Nixon reportedly favored going a notch lower. State Department press officer John F. King then announced Dubs, who holds the rank of country director in the department, would be the man. King said: "In view of the unwarranted detention of the crew passengers of a light U.S. aircraft by Soviet authorities, including three officers of the American armed forces, it has been deemed inappropriate this year for senior American officials to accept the hospitality of the Soviet government on the occasion of the November celebrations." Dubs was said to be under instructions to make plain to Dobrynin mounting U.S. displeasure over continued Soviet detention of the two U.S. Army generals and a major who landed in Soviet Armenia Oct. 21. The United States says the light plane strayed across the Turkish border inadvertently and should be released promptly. The Soviets have protested the intrusion into their air space and say they are holding the men pending an investigation. Moscow has turned down a request that U.S. diplomats be allowed to visit the American officers Monday. On previous visits, the men have been found in good health under house arrest in a comfortable villa.

The other oar was driven by Hans Stampe, 40, of Jefferson. Both drivers and three passengers were injured in the accident.

U.S. SUES G.M. WASHINGTON (AP) - The government has filed its first suit under the 1966 National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, asking a federal court to force General Motors Corp. to warn purchasers of 200,000 pickup trucks about allegedly unsafe wheels. vicinity of the Soviet war memorial. As the result of these, one Soviet sentry was wounded and taken to a hospital in East Berlin by an ambulance from the British military hospital in West Berlin. The incident is being investigated." British soldiers at the scene said the soldier had a stomach wound, which probably was not mortal. "It is a pretty far shot from across the way to the memorial," one said. "The tanks there are lighted at night, but there are no lights on the front itself. The two Russians on guard do not stand at attention as in the daytime but walk around to keep warm." The season's first snow covered the memorial and its adjacent park during the night. At a nearby crossing point of the Berlin wall where the Russian memorial guards come and go, a West Berlin customs officer said his station reported that two shots were heard by the West Berlin police who then hurried to the scene. As the time for the anual anniversary parade drew near, the area swarmed with police, far more than usual. "We are taking and the German police are taking extra precautions," a British source said. West Berlin Mayor Klauh Schuetz said it was too early to say who was responsible. "But I must decisively condemn this occurrence," he said in a radio interview. The soviet memorial is topped by a 65-foot figure of a world War I Red army soldier and was made of glittering marble taken from Adolph Hitler's Reich Chancellery. It is just west of the Brandenburg Gate in the British sector and is maned by an 18-man guard. The anniversary parade took place as planned with the usual honor guard of unarmed troops and a band. The Soviet ambassador to East Germany, Pybtr Abrassimov, came in his limousine accompanied by a Red army jeep with armed soldiers. Mtfi 1 ii i i > I' II!i 11 Wliiii'Bii ii 1 1* 1111* iwi n Whee!

Israel No Longer Committed to U.S. Sponsored Truce: Dayan By The Associated Press Defense Minister Moshe Dayan says Israel no longer is committed to terms of a U.S.-sponsored cease-fire and military standstill near the Suez Canal and that if Egyptian troops cross the canal "they will have to meet Israel's iron fist." The cease-fire expired Thursday midnight, but a resolution,] passed Wednesday in the United Nations.urged'that it be extended, and the guns remained silent today. Dayan told a group of engineers in Tel Aviv on Friday the extension was prompted by the U.N. resolution and contained no commitment to the United States, implying that Washington had tied Israel's hands with the original three-month standstill. The resolution also recommended that Israel, Egypt and Jordan return to indirect peace negotiations at the United Nations, which Israel has refused to do until Egypt pulls back missiles allegedly moved closer to the canal in violation of the original cease-fire agreement. Egypt responded that the missiles were in the standstill zone before the agreement and refused to pull them back. Egypt said the current extension is the last under any circumstances, and Premier Wasfi Tell of Jordan reportedly told a Beirut magazine he believes another Arab-Israeli war is inevitable. Tell pledged today in Amman to turn Jordan into tlhe "launching pad and mainstay" of the Palestine guerrilla movement. He told a news conference his government would devote all its efforts to achieving a "deep and lasting brotherhood" between the army and the guerrillas. Tell, whose appointment by King Hussein has been attacked bitterly by the commandos, expressed "heartfelt regret" for bloody fighting in September between Jordanian troops and Palestinian guerrillas. "Our existence has only one label—ithe battle with Israel," the premter told newsmen. "The battle must be based on national unity and Arab cooper- Middle East.... See Page 7 South Viets Push Drive in Cambodia SAIGON (AP) - A South Vietnamese general said today he believes all U.S. combat troops can be withdrawn from the southern half of the country sometime next year. Lt. Gen. Do Cao Tri also said his forces may push 50 miles into Cambodia to the provincial capital of Kratie on the eastern bank of the Mekong River to maintain pressure on North Vietnamese forces, keep them out of South Vietnam and insure the completion of the Vietnami- zation program in his region. As Tri spoke, seven South Vietnamese task forces totaling nearly 20,000 troops, and three battalions of Cambodian infantry numbering more than 1,000 men swept through large sections of Cambodia. Battlefield communiques from Saigon and Phnom Penh reported no significant contacts, however. The drive, the biggest since the allied incursions Of last May and June, had three objectives: —To repair a serious breach in Phnom Penh's outer defenses and ease North Vietnamese and Viet Cong pressure on the Cambodian capital. —To keep pressure on and block three North Vietnamese divisions— targeted against the southern half of South Vietnam. Troops of the divisions are poised along Highways 1, 7 and 13 that lead into the military re­ gion commanded by Tri. The region includes Saigon and 11 surrounding provinces and shares 231 miles of border with Cambodia. The South Vietnamese task forces are operating in a wide arc ranging from 40 miles west of Saigon to 85 miles to the north. —To destroy North Vietnamese sanctuaries along the border rebuilt since the allied drives of last summer. Both Tri and other allied field commanders said there has been stepped up enemy activity along the Cambodian frontier. Tri told a luncheon meeting of the Association of Foreign Correspondents in Vietnam, "the enemy is in great trouble in Cambodia" because its troops are spread thin and "never succeeded in building up the local infrastructure organization with the majority of Cambodian people to support their military activities." American sources said there are now about 75,000 U.S. troops in Tri's military region with as many support troops as combat forces. Two of the three brigades and the headquarters of the 25th Infantry Division will be redployed to Hawaii by Christmas. This will leave, in addition to one brigade of the 25th, the 1st Air Cavalry Division and the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment as combat ground troops. Hot off the Wire Pope's Visit Preceded by Philippines Attack MANILA (AP) - Calling the Roman Catholic Church "the single biggest obstacle to progress," a newspaper published by the Philippines government printed a four-page attack on the church three weeks before scheduled visit by Pope Paul VI. Government Report, a weekly tabloid printed by the National Media Production Center, says in this week's edition the church has amassed tremendous wealth and has refused to meet the social problems of the times in the Philippines. The Pope is to arrive Nov. 27 for a three-day stay in the only Roman Catholic nation of Asia. About 85 per cent of the 38 million Filipinos are Catholics. A high Catholic Church official said today the attack was "sad" because of its timing, strong language and inaccuracies. He suggested it was aimed at priests who have become involved in politics.

The commission said that the average paycheck for the 153,700 workers was $149.17—a $4.57 increase over August and a $1.75 increase over the high set in January of this year. The commission also reports that the state's unemployment rate stood at 3.1 per cent of the workforce in mid-September.

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Banjo player Eddie Peabody, 69, who collapsed during a performance Friday night and fell head first from the stage, died today. Doctors at St. Elizabeth Hospital said he suffered a stroke. Peabody, who had a quick and rhythmic style, performed in concerts and on television and he made several recordings. The Phoenix, Ariz., resident began his career 50 years ago in vaudeville. DETROIT (AP) - Although progress apparently has been made on a new national pact, the end of a 54-day-old United Auto Workers Union strike against General Motors Corp. still seemed today to hang on local-level pacts. The UAW summoned its 350- member GM Council to a meeting here Wednesday—a traditional sign of progress in contract talks. However, union leaders emphasized in their telegrams to delegates the urgency of the local-level agre- ments, and also said no national settlement was "imminent." HENDERSON, N.C. (AP) — Sporadic shooting and two fires broke out Friday night, police said, after officers used tear gas to disperse a group of Negroes protesting school desegregation policies. Police said they did not return the gunfire and no one was injured by it. Sheriff Linwood B. Falkner said officers were unable to determine where the shooting was coming from. A home and a tobacco warehouse were destroyed by the fires.
