U.S.-Syrian Relations Now President's Aim the two presidents exchanged remarks with both speaking of the search for lasting peace in a region scarred by four wars in the past 25 years. »· ASSAD TOLD Nixon that "no peace can be established in this region unless a real and just solution is found for the Palestinian question." He added: "The only lasting and durable peace in this region. .. .would terminate Israeli occupation, restore the land to its people, remove the grievances inflicted on the people of Palestine and ensure them of their legitimate national rights." This was Nixon's third stop on his Middle East tour and the Syrian MIG jets provided a brief period of concern just before the presidential jet landed here on its flight from Jidda, Saudi Arabia. Four MIGs approached the Boeing 707 and split off two on each wing. Unaware that the Syrians had planned an escort, Nixon's pilot, Col. Ralph D. Albertazzie, put the presidential plane into several sharp turns in an effort to confirm the nationality of the MIGs and to determine their purpose. Ronald L. Ziegler, Nixon's press secretary, told newsmen later the maneuvers were evasive to give Albertazzie time to confirm with the Damascus airport tower that the jets in fact were escorts. Syrian air force jets later swooped over the airport as Nixon arrived to an official greeting. · NIXON WILL be in Israel today and the big question will be the person-to-person Israeli reaction to the President's agreement with Egypt to provide help in the field of nuclear aid. Some Israeli officials reportedly are "unhappy" with the agreement. Security was heavy throughout Damascus for Nixon's 24-hour stay. Palestinian guerrillas, some of whom have voiced objections to Nixon's trip to the Middle East, maintain base camps and headquarters in Syria in addition to neighboring Lebanon. Red-bereted paratroopers with Soviet-made AK47 auto- Prince's Date In Seclusion After Big Stir ', LONDON - i/Pi - Laura Jo Watkins has gone into hiding because of publicity over her f r i e n d s h i p with Prince Charles, heir to Britain's throne, American officials said Saturday. The informants said the 20-year-old California blonde was upset over the stir aroused by her reported romance with the prince. They added she might cut short her ;visit and fly home in the next few days. The daughter of an American admiral moved out of the residence of U.S. Ambassador Walter Annenberg late Friday, the sources said, and went to stay with unidentified friends. They did not think she was staying at Buckingham Palace. Windsor Castle or any other royal residence. From Page One for matic rifles lined the 25-mile motorcade route into Damascus from the airport. Other soldiers stood almost shoulder-to-shoulder in the downtown area. The N'xons were staying in a fashionable diplomatic quarter of the city. A large number of Syrian dignitaries accompanied President and Mrs. Assad in welcoming Nixon and his wife, Pat, at the airport, but as in Saudi Arabia the day before there was none of the wild jubiliation that marked Nixon's visit to Egypt last Wednesday and Thursday. Nevertheless, Ziegler said the White House party "was quite pleased with the number of people who turned out and gave us a warm welcome." About 1,000 members of Syria's women's militia and several hundred soldiers took part in the airport ceremonies. They applauded as Nixon and Assad reviewed an honor guard. Just a few hours before Nixon said farewell to King Faisal of Saudi Arabia at Jidda after making his promise of increased military aid to the desert kingdom. "The United States will see to it that the level of security consistent with its responsibility to the Middle East is raised," Nixon told the king. "IF SAUDI Arabia is strong and secure, as it will be, it will enhance the chances peace." Ziegler told newsmen on the flight to Syria later the possibility of sales of F4 Phantom jets -- the most advanced U.S. fighter now in service -- had not come up in the Faisal-Nixon talks. He added that the question of future arms sales will be considered in the context of the Economic Coordinating Commission agreement signed by the United States and Saudi Arabia in Washington earlier this month. Faisal told Nixon that he hoped "all problems and blemishes that seem to exist between the United States and some Arab countries will be removed." The monarch also assailed those who oppose Nixon. "Anybody who stands against you in the United States or outside the United States of America or against your relationship with us has only one thing in mind, to splinter us and damage the chances for peace," he said. The exchange of remarks came after more than two hours of private talks. Nixon's arrival in Syria coincided with the return of Syrian forces to the first section of territory taken by Israel in the Golan Heights in the Middle East War last October. This was part of the Syrian- Israeli disengagement agreement worked out by Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger earlier this month. From Page One TURN utive committee was in session. More than 100 teachers representing 21 counties gathered at the Statehouse early Saturday, and marched to the WVEA building. The committee agreed to see only five members of the group, and closed the meeting to the public. The delegation asked for Stone's retention, the reinstatement of an NBA service agreement and asked that TURN representatives be assigned to 50 per cent of the WVEA's committees. After the meeting. Bane said he felt it is unlikely that the committee will reverse its position on Stone. However, he claimed their "cause isn't lost yet." ALTHOUGH THERE have been murmers of a mass withdrawal from the WVEA by reform members, the majority said Saturday it intends to remain in the organization and fight for reform. In spite of the fact that the meeting was closed, the entire contingent filed through the meeting room and out a side door after their delegation was dismissed. They carried signs identifying their home counties and asking for the renewal of Stone's contract. Applications are being accepted for the job through July 10. Stone's contract expires June 30. The executive committee has appointed Margaret Baldwin acting executive secretary until a replacement can be hired. She is assistant executive secretary for administration. During Saturday's business session, the executive committee approved the expenditure of up to $1,000 for legal defense of WVEA staff and teachers at Ruthlawn Elementary School. Ruthlawn Principal Freda Burdette has filed suit against the WVEA officials and teachers as the result of their effort to persuade the Kanawha County Board of Education to transfer her. The WVEA is representing the teachers in the dispute. from Page One Singled out for particular criticism were the leaks resulting in newspaper articles relating to Secretary of State Kissinger and the wiretaps placed on some of his staff members. Those leaks led Dean Burch, a White House counsel, to charge that Peter W. Rodino Jr., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, "seems to have lost control" of his committee. Asked to comment, Rodino said: "Well, up until now we've claimed with justification and a great deal of pride, that there weren't any (leaks). "They are troublesome. This is a process that requires deliberation and fairness. I wouldn't want this to be used to discredit the committee." Steps have been taken to try to stop what the House Republican leader, John J. Rhodes, called a "deluge" of information from committee sources. Initially, the committee's transcripts of the Oval Office tapes were given to the members. But once a comparison of the committee's transcripts and the White House transcripts of the same conversation appear in print, a new rule was instituted: the transcripts are now returned by the members before they leave Room 2141. Then there are the memos prepared for the committee by William P. Dixon, a staff member, that summarize and interpret the material that has been heard -- and that have been the source of several recent newspaper articles. "The Dixoa-memo episode is over," a committee official said. He said that the memos would no longer contain sensitive material and would no longer be passed out routinely to members without clearance from Rodino or other senior officials. Most leaks are based on individuals' recollections. Sometimes, however, there are documents which are passed on in private and with a guarantee of anonymity. In addition, the 38 members of the committee are not the only source for material related to their investigation. Articles have appeared based on material that reportedly came from sources at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The White House has alleged that the leaking of material is selective and politically motivated, designed to discredit Nixon, But the White House has also leaked material when it seemed advantageous. Two examples are the first letter from the committee asking for 43 Watergate-related tapes, and the reported eagerness of the White House to supply Republican members of the committee with copies of the defense brief offered by James D. St. Clair, Nixon's lawyer -- with the apparent thought that these same members might leak the brief to the press. BERN. More tnaa 200 etcags by Pabio Pkasso were sold at aa auction here Saturday.
