CAIRO ( A P ) - Arab oil ministers met here Saturday to take a second look at their two-month-old decision to lift their oil embargo against the United States. The ministers, from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria. Abu Dhabi, Libya, Bahrein, Egypt and Qatar met privately much of the day before convening formally. Syria was not represented but Egyptian officials said Syrian Oil Minister Da- bry Kafry was expected. The signing Friday of a disengagement agreement on the Syrian front appeared to have removed the main agenda item -- whether the embargo should be reimposed. The oil ministers decided to wait for the arrival of the Syrian oil delegation today before formally discussing the oil embargo. It was originally imposed seven months ago to pressure Washington in its Middle East policy and was lifted after Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger worked out a troop d i s e n g a g e m e n t a l o n g t h e Suez. * * * SYRIA and Libya voted against lifting the embargo two months ago, but Algeria joined Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other Persian Gulf producers in pushing it through, stressing that it was strictly provisional until June 1. Arab nations provide the United States with some 10 per cent of its oil imports. E g y p t i a n O i l M i n i s t e r Ahmed Hilal told a newsman the ministers were likely to discuss ending the embargo against Holland. Holland. Portugal, South Africa and Rhodesia are still on the embargoed list. Closed-Door Policy Likely in Inquiry Nixon Milk Price Order Called Costly against Nixon, it is not likely to linger at any great length before making its decision official. '. Rep. John Seiberling. D- Ohio, expresses what is probably the prevailing sentiment among the majority Democrats: "As soon as we receive sufficient evidence to believe probable cause of impeachable offenses exists, it seems to me that is sufficient." Most of the Democrats say the panel, like a grand jury, is charged only with determining; whether there are reasonable grounds to believe an impeachable offense has been committed. The matter of proof would be left to the Senate. For that reason -- and others -- they generally oppose calling a long line of witnesses, especially when most would merely duplicate testimony before the Senate Watergate committee and elsewhere. Witnesses, they say, should be summoned only to resolve serious conflicts in evidence. »- BUT REP. DAVID DENNIS, R-Ind., and a number of other Republican members argue that a prospective impeachment recommendation is so serious that it must be based on proven charges of ^misconduct. Hence. Dennis tried, to no avail, last week to have the committee subpoena ;a starting list of 13 witnesses. '. Rodino managed to block the Dennis move on a procedural point, but the Republican intends to keep the pressure on. The committee took another long stride toward meeting Rodino's timetable when it also refused, on a vote of 23 to 15. to open the hearings immediately, television included. While speedy and efficient, such a format provides little - for cameras to focus upon and , no chance for the individual congressmen to grab the lime- i light. The procedure undoubtedly would have been changed '. if the hearings were opened. Like the witness stand, the ! s u b j e c t of open h e a r i n g s doubtlessly will arise again when the presentation of evidence is completed. But by : then there will be ever heavier pressure to conclude the inquiry quickly. '. Most House members, espe- ·crially the Republicans, are ^anxious to get the vote behind ^-them. And House and Senate pleaders are growing increas- 'jingly alarmed at the progress of the regular legislative program. ». IN R E L A T E D d e v e l o p - ments Saturday: ··Sen. Walter F. Mondale, D-Minn., accused Nixon of using foreign espionage tactics for "subverting the law at home." Mondale, in remarks prepared for an address in Los Angeles, said that "the danger of the Nixon presidency has been to transfer that style of secrecy, the use of national security and the psychology of negotiating with the enemy, away from the foreign-policy arena and into the arena of domestic affairs. "This tendency continues today in the President's handling of the House impeachment inquiry and his dealings with the special prosecutor and the courts," said Mondale. ··Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Cal- 2 Named The chairman of the board is Cleveland K. Benedict of Lewisburg. He was appointed to that post in February. The board is scheduled to interview 18 West Virginia Penitentiary inmates Tuesday and similar hearings are scheduled later this month at the Huttonsville Correctional Center. In a d d i t i o n to h o l d i n g monthly parole hearings at the three adult penal institutions in West Virginia, the members also preside over parole revocation hearings and process appeals for gubernatorial clemency. Louden is a graduate of West Virginia University, a veteran of World War II and formerly served as a Wood County commissioner. During his 30 years in military service, Foulk served as a fighter pilot during World War II, and was a commander of deployment personnel in the Philippines. He is a graduate of the West Point. Both appointments are subject to State Senate confirmation. 'Rip-Off [passive attitude towards an ^economic crisis which is un- 3ierminig the expectations and -quality of life of millions of ^average-income Americans --at least two-thirds of a nation," Reuss said. ~ HE SAID a postive policy is -needed to combat rising joblessness, worsening inflation -and an inequitable tax struc- Iture. - He said the political scandals of Watergate already ·have led to profound disaffection among citizens, and "to "allow the economic situation -to deteriorate still further is "the surest way to extremism -and disaster." I The 20-year trend which saw ~a greater share of the nation's -income going to low and mid- · y "dle-income families has been -reversed, Reuss s^id, and he gadded: ·· "Under the Nixon administration economic policies, the ~rich indeed got richer, relatively speaking, and the poor ;got poorer, representing a .-transfer of more than $10 bil- CJion a year from the bottom three-fifjhs of our nation's families|io the top one-fifth." :*' President ment agencies have conducted s u r v e i l l a n c e o p e r a t i o n s against those groups without formally declaring them subversive The FBI refuses to disclose its policies and procedures for placing an organization and its members under surveillance. Former Atty. Gen. Elliot L. Richardson initiated a review of the attorney general's list but resigned before reaching a decision on what to do about it. Saxbe revived the study in April. At the time, he said the department m i g h t consider ways to update and continue use of the list. But the legal obstacles apparently blocked that route. Nixon tried to revive the list three years ago by instructing the highly paid but unproductive Subversive A c t i v i t i e s Control Board to monitor and update it. Congress opposed the move and cut off all funds for the board, which went out -, of business in 1973. I if., called, meanwhile, for an "immediate and unequivocal" statement by Nixon that he would obey! a Supreme Court order to surrender tapes subpoenaed by'special prosecutor Leon Jaworski. The high court agreed on Friday to enter the dispute, with hearings scheduled in early July. Nixon's aides have declined comment recently when asked whether the President would abide by the court's decision, saying such questions are hypothetical. When a similar dispute arose last year involving Jaworski's predecessor, Archibald Cox. Nixon then said he would comply with a "definitive ruling" of the Supreme Court -- which, as it turned out. never got that case. Cranston, in a speech prepared for the commencement at California State University at Long Beach, said that Nixon should "declare inoperative" his remarks regarding the potential court action in the Cox case and now promise "clearly and without any qualification, that he will comply with a decision of the.highest court of the land whatever that decision may be." By Brooks Jackson W A S H I N G T O N - i/P) President Nixon's order raising federal milk price supports in 1971 may have cost the public more than $300 million, the staff of the Senate Watergate committee says. It quoted the administration's chief agricultural economist as saying milk prices in grocery stores would have gone down had Nixon left federal price supports at the lev- al set initially by the Agriculture Department. "The President's decision was apparently worth anywhere from $300 million to $700 million in extra income to dairy farmers," the staff said in a draft report. The report was written principally by Democratic staff members and based on evidence gathered by both sides. The Associated Press obtained a copy after it was circulated to committee members. The report said the cost of Nixon's price order was paid by consumers in the form of h i g h e r p r i c e s f o r m i l k , cheese, butter and other dairy products, and also by taxpayers in the form of increased federal spending to keep farm income up. The report concluded generally that Nixon's price increase was apparently direct- ly l i n k e d to c a m p a i g n donations from the dairy f a r m e r l o b b y , w h i c h h a d promised to give the President $2 million for his re-election campaign. The White House has denied that Nixon was influenced by the promise of money, and has also stated, "Economically, the President's decision to raise the support level proved to be sound and beneficial for the nation."
