The five-nation OAS truce team here postponed its scheduled return to Washington on the Panamanian insistence it work out a new peace formula binding the U.S. to revision of the treaties. At the same time, the team called on the U.S. and Panama to abstain from any acts or statements which might block a solution of the zone conflict. The departure was postponed even though the Organization of American States (OAS) group considered its work completed with signature of an agreement by Panama and the United States to establish a joint cooperation committee to guarantee the peace, and a renewed U.S. pledge to fly the Panamanian [events." he said "The fact that these incidents j seemed to occur simultaneously [all over the place indicates that the five-nation group agreed to remain at least 12 hours longer to seek to prevent continued tension between Panama and the United States from exploding into new conflict. Twenty-one persons were killed and 463 wounded between Thursday and Sunday. The casualties included four American dead and 103 wounded, including three civlians. Monday's "peace formula" snagged quickly on Panamanian insistence that the United States agree to treaty revisions prior to any formal talks on re-establishing normal diplomatic relations. The U.S. position was that it could not be "pressured" into treaty revisions.

U. S. District Judge Lewis R. Morgan handed down an order requiring a new trial in the case unless within 20 days all punitive damages awarded to Butts above $400,000 are remit-; ted. i The article, based on a report by insurance salesman George Burnett that he overheard a telephone conversation between Butts and Alabama Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant, alleged that Butts gave Bryant secret information about the Georgia team. Butts was athletic director at Georgia at the time but since has resigned. In asking for a new trial, Curtis attorneys argued that errors were permitted during the trial and in Morgan's charge to the 12-man jury and that bias The jury awarded Butts S3 [was introduced to influence the million in punitive damages and [jurymen.

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico (UPI)—Actress Elizabeth Taylor, weary of waiting for an amicable divorce agreement, filed for divorce today against singer Eddie Fisher to make way for her marriage to actor Richard Burton. Miss Taylor began the next- to-last chapter of the romance that began on the sets of the movie "Cleopatra" by filing suit in the court of first instance here. Fisher has 20 days in which to answer the suit or he can remain silent and free Miss Taylor to take her fourth husband. Liz asked only for custody of Liza, the German girl adopted during her marriage with Fisher. She sought no property settlement, saying their fortunes had not been earned jointly. The suit was filed before Judge Arcadio Estrada Quinones, the same judge who granted Sybil Burton a divorce from Burton last month.
