Remember Pay Your Paper Boy There were charges. no injuries or No Comment On Stolen Bikes NEW YORK (AP) — Thomas P. F. Hoving. who championed the cause of the bicyclist in Central Park, says two of his nicy cles were stolen there Sunday. While serving as parks commissioner, Hoving instituted a ban on autos during weekends to make the park more pleasant for cyclists and strollers. He went riding in the park Sunday and later left the bikes locked. When he returned, 2% hours later, they were gone, he told police.

At U.N. headquarters in New York, the 10 nonpermanent members of the Security Council worked on a resolution that would have the 15-nation body appeal to all parties in the dispute to "exercise special restraint." The draft originally included an appeal for all parties to "forego belligerence" in line with the wording of Secretary- General U Thant's recommendation to the council Saturday. But the members dropped the term because Nasser might interpret it as a demand to lift his blockade of the Gulf of Aqaba. Informants at the United Nations said even if Egypt supports the resolution, there was no assurance it would receive Soviet approval. They were encouraged, however, by the fact that Communist Bulgaria, a nonpermanent member, had ended a boycott of negotiations on a resolution. U.S. Ambassador Arthur J Joldberg stressed the belligerence factor when he joinec Britain's Lord Caradon Monday n a joint appeal to the council Goldberg said foregoing belli gerence "must mean foregoinj any blockade of the Gulf of Aqaba ... and permitting free and innocent passage of all na tions and all flags through the Strait of Tirah." Egyptian. Ambassador Mohamed Award el-Kony insisted on Cairo's right to halt Israeli shipping in the Gulf of Aqaba, saying the strait was in Egypt's territorial waters. He got quick support from Soviet Ambassador Nikolai T. Fedorenko, who accused the United Slates of supporting extremist circles in Israel and asserted that Egypt was justified in taking measures to defend its security. Fedorenko supported an Egyptian proposal to re-establish the Israeli-Egyptian Mixed Armistice Commission, but Israeli Ambassador Gideon Ratae] said Egypt was trying to use the U.N. .armistice machinery as "a cover for the continuation of that very belligerency which the Arab sovereignty or opposing he blockade of the Gulf of Aq- aba. Pope Paul VI sent a message o Eshkol expressing hope that >eace would prevail in the Mid- lie East. Eshkol replied that he and the Israeli people snared he pontiff's wish but that the ;ey to the situation lies with Sgypl. In Montreal, the oil sheikdom of Kuwait closed its pavilion at 3xpo 67 in protest against Canada's attitude on the crisis. Nasser has accused Canada of being biased toward Israel.
