V. ,4 Berets Cut Back WASHINGTON (AP) — The Special Forces, once this country's glamour troops, are being cut back again as the Army builds a new elite force of light infantry. Army officials say the strength of the Green Berets is being reduced to about 5,000 men with the withdrawal of the last 1,400 special forces troopers from the Taiwan and Okinawa by June 30. The peak strength was 11,700 in 1968. When the pullout was announced some time ago, it was indicated the men would be sent to Special Forces units in the United States. But officials now say most will be reassigned to other Army duties and that many will be encouraged to join three new battalions of Rangers to be formed. Big Air Battle By The Associated Press Israeli and Syrian jets battled above Mt. Hermon today in what the Tel Aviv command described as the biggest air battle since the October war. Israel claimed downing four Syrian planes. An earlier report from Damascus said Syrian antiaircraft missiles destroyed an Israeli F4 Phantom but Israel denied the report. The dogfights came after Israeli and Syrian jets bombed and strafed the crest of the strategic 9.200-foot high mountain. An Israeli command spokesman said Israeli interceptors scrambled when the Syrian planes attacked and scored four hits. The spokesman said all Israeli planes returned safely to base. Fords for Cuba BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Ford's Argentine subsidiary announced today agreement has been reached with Cuba to deliver $30 million worth of cars and trucks over three years. A Ford Motor Argentina spokesman said a contract will be signed in ceremonies here Tuesday at the Ministry of Economy. The deal is the second by a subsidiary of an American car manufacturer with Fidel Castro's government since Washington granted special waivers to its 14-year old trade embargo against Cuba. The waivers were granted when Argentina insisted subsidiaries here must be allowed to deal with Cuba. Last week Chrysler's Argentina plant signed a $24.2 million deal to ship 9.000 vehicles over three years. beginning next month. Kissinger and Gromvko Meet %/ GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) — Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger today resumed his appeal to Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko for Soviet cooperation in the drive to separate Israeli and Syrian forces on the Golan Heights. Talking in Kissinger's hotel suite, they also reviewed prospects for a treaty limiting missiles with independently targeted nuclear warheads. This evening Kissinger flies to Algeria to see President Houari Boumedienne and lodge another plea for his help in persuading Syria to agree to a disengagement. Inflation Threat WASHINGTON (AP) — Nixon administration officials are concerned that the expiration of economic controls Tuesday will spur a burst of big wage hikes and thus aggravate inflation. While officials say they hope labor will restrain its demands, government figures show contract settlements already have grown costlier within the past few months, reversing a four-year trend. Also, strike activity in recent weeks is up substantially. Potential labor troubles loom ahead with airline machinists and longshoremen as well as in the coal, construction, communications and railroad industries. The administration has indicated most concern over negotiations in the soft coal industry, which is to start contract talks this summer with the new leadership of the United Mine Workers. "All the ingredients are there to have a very difficult time," said W.J. Usery Jr., the President's chief labor troubleshooter. Delegates to the UMW's recent convention urged their leaders to negotiate for higher wages, sick pay, cost of living increases and a tripling of industry payments to the welfare fund. Company spokesmen termed these demands "pie in the sky." Judge Slain BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Marxist terrorists claimed the assassination Sunday of a former judge was part of their campaign to avenge the deaths two years ago of 16 imprisoned guerrillas in the socalled "Trelew Massacre." Jorge V. Quiroga, 48, a judge in the former antisubversion courts at the time of the Trelew killings, was gunned down Sunday by two terrorists on a motorcycle close to his home.

Dubuque police said Kenneth Ring, 49, was repairing a lawn mower in front of his home Sunday when he was struck by a car driven by Mary Louise Auge, 15, Dubuque. Officers said Miss Auge apparently turned a corner too sharply and her vehicle left the street, struck Ring and continued on until it hit the Ring home. Miss Auge was charged with failure to control her vehicle on a turn. William Thornton, 58. Omaha, Neb., was killed in a two-car crash Saturday on U.S. 59 two miles north of Harlan. The Iowa Highway Patrol said the Thornton car was struck broadside by a car driven by Bruce Taylor, 23, Westphalia. Taylor was listed in good condition Monday at a Harlan hospital. Harley Spears, 26. Davenport, died Saturday when the motorcycle he was driving collided with a car on the Rock Island Arsenal bridge at Davenport. The car was driven by Salley Whitka, 19, Davenport, who was not injured. A passenger on the motorcycle, Larry Noles, 27, Davenport, was hospitalized with injuries. Fred Dose, 55. rural Springville, was killed Saturday when the car he was driving collided with another driven by Darryl Martin, 17, Mount Vernon. The accident occurred on a Linn County road four miles south of Springville. Martin and a passenger in his car, Deborah La Barge, 18, Central City, were hospitalized in Cedar Rapids. • Nixon „ (Continued From Page 1) the cumulative pattern of these things surrounding the President, in each case involving somebody next to him in responsibility, creates a really troublesome question. "A failure on his part now to fully meet the requests for tapes justifies an adverse inference on this very question." Javits, on CBS' "Face the Nation," said that turning over transcripts likely would be viewed as inadequate. He also said that if the House votes an impeachment, Nixon should step down temporarily while he is on trial in the Senate. Last week the Judiciary Committee voted 34 to 4 to grant a White House request for five more days. Originally the deadline was last Thursday. In granting the delay, many committee members, including Chairman Peter W. Rodino Jr., D-N.J., said they hoped the request for more time to review the subpoenaed material was an indication that Nixon planned to supply everything called for in the subpoena. But the committee appeared unanimous in its concern that the White House response might be edited transcripts. Even the President's strongest supporters seemed agreed that unless the committee has a role in verifying that all pertinent material is included in the transcripts, they would not be acceptable. The White House response to the subpoena also will have to be guided in part by Nixon's reaction to a committee request for still more tapes. •Briefs From the AP Wire luce Anti-inflat Friday.

WASHINGTON (AP) Anti-inflation legislation authorizing another year of life for wage-price controls is being introduced in the Senate today over the opposition of big business and labor. A Senate vote on the bill is expected later in the week. The bill's provisions would be retroactive to May 1; current wage-pi ice-control authority expires April 30—Tuesday night. Sens. Edmund S. Muskie, D- Maine, Adlai E. Stevenson III, D-I11., and Jacob K. Javits, R- N.Y., say it was fear of worsening inflation that prompted them to offer the bill to extend wage-price control authority for another year. The measure sponsored by Muskie, Stevenson, Javits and 10 others would authorize the President to reimpose wage- price controls on any segment of the economy that presented a danger of serious inflation.

LISBON, Portugal (AP) Rebel leaders in Portugal's African territories have spurned the new junta's promise of limited self-government and say they will fight on for independence. "The only way to end the war in Mozambique is for the Portuguese to recognize the right of the Mozambique people —led by Frelimo—to independence," said Frelimo, the guerrilla movement in Mozambique. "The war will continue if the junta's intention is to perpetuate the colonial system through new means," it added.

CHICAGO (AP) - Wheat futures again tumbled for limit losses on the Chicago Board of Trade today, and influenced declines in other commodities. Wheat futures fell 20. cents a bushel, soybeans 15, corn 9 cents and oats 5Vfe cents. Soybean oil was down the limit of 100 points while soybean meal fell back $7 a ton. Iced broilers eased '/2 to 1 cent a pound in fairly modest trade. The sellingin wheat appeared to have been influenced mostly by some disappointment over export commitments. The figures indicated a slowdown in wheat purchases by other countries. Trade in the wheat pit was rather active on the opening but buyers were rather scarce. Some of the selling appeared to be a carryover from last Friday's session when wheat fell to limits. The outlook for soybean meal, in competition with fish meal, continued to influence sellers in the soybean complex. Contract lows again were posted in old crop meal. After about an hour, Chicago wheat was 17 to 20 cents a bushel lower, May 3.89%; Gulf hard red wheat was not traded; corn was 7 to 8Va lower, May 2.77; oats were 4Va to 5 l /i lower, May 1.31 and soybeans were 12 to 15 lower, May 5.45.

Church Nine young people were confirmed during the Sunday morning service at First United Methodist Church. The Rev. Dr. Francis L. Brockman, minister, officiated. Those confirmed were Bobby Blincow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Blincow; Elizabeth Jones, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Don Jones; David Lockhart, son of Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Lockhart; Larry Millender, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Millender; Todd Schroeder, son of Mr. and Mrs. Burdette Schroeder; Steve Sikkema, son of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Sikkema; Laurie Teague, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Darwin Teague; Doug Zimmerman, son of Mrs. Eleanor Zimmerman; and Tammy Eissens, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Eissens. • Hair (Continued From Page 1) required year of working under a master before they are licensed, they cut hair only into "white sidewalls." a short style used for all men. Thraen said. On the other hand, during the 250 hours out of 2.100 necessary for a licensed beautician, more emphasis is placed on fitting the hair style to the individual for a total look. Clothes, occupation and the customer's preference are noted before a cosmetologist cuts hair. "The barber would have been a lot better off to go to a beauty school to learn haircutting," Thraen said. He has served on the National Hairdressers Association of Iowa's board for three years. In that time. Thraen said that legislators pay more attention to barbers' unions than the association. A bill to update the 1926 hairdressers laws and textbooks of beauty schools failed, despite lobbying. "When we went into the state legislature to change this thing, legislators told us that we would not get a bill through unless we wined and dined the heads of the committees where we had the bill written up,"Thraen said. The delegation was told that they had entertained the wrong persons after their efforts failed the first year. After two more years, the bill still did not pass because the association did not represent enough hairdressers, Thraen said they were told. Of the 17,000 registered hairdressers in the state at that time, about 7,500 were working, and 2,500-3,000 were members of the association. Barbers unions have about 90 per cent membership. These unions were formed primarily to set uniform rates, Thraen said. He does not believe cosmetologists need to unionize. "I think the law's going to be ruled on again,'' the cosmetologist said. A similar law allowing barbers to cut women's hair, but banning beauticians from cutting men's hair was ruled unconstitutional in Conneticut, Thraen said. Another cosmetologist, Mrs. Jerome Kbkenge is undecided on whether she will continue to cut men's hair. As Thraen, most of her male customers are husbands of women she normally serves. When asked why she believed men had her cut their hair rather than barbers,.Mrs. Kokenge replied, "Mostly, I think because barbers cut the hair too short." president who had been a worker. "The slogan 'Education makes free' and 'Knowledge is power' meant more to him than to mount barricades," Kreisky said of the veteran Austrian Socialist. DETROIT (AP) -Chrysler Corp., citing "world gasoline shortages, inflation, and fears of a recession," today reported first-quarter net earnings of $1.6 million — down 98 per cent from last year's record $89.8 million. Chrysler was the second of the Big Three automakers to report sharp first-quarter earnings declines. The third big car-maker—Ford—is to report on Tuesday. The automaker's net earnings dropped from $1.71 a share in the first quarter of 1973 to 3 cents a share in the first quarter of 1974, the firm said in a statement to stockholders. WASHINGTON (AP) — "A very routine matter" is the way a Chicago attorney describes a dispute between the Internal Revenue Service and a group of lowans over what the government asserts are $876,813 in back federal income taxes and penalties. The attorney is handling three of the six related cases. Two Iowa couples and the cemetery firms with which they are associated are fighting the IRS judgments of their tax obligations, income and deductions over a four-year period. The IRS filed notices of tax deficiencies against the two Cedar Falls couples and the four firms in separate actions last Oct. 24 on their tax returns from the late 1960s.

He faces trial in Washington at a still unset date on almost identical charges in connection with the cover-up of the Watergate break-in. Leon Jaworski, the Watergate special prosecutor, still is studying part of the Nixon campaign financing operation which Stans headed. "Our faith was resting with a very, very fine jury," Mitchell told a news conference in the U.S. Courthouse. "They were a cross section of the people and they were representative of America. "If there is one place I am firmly convinced you can get justice, it's from the American people. I have great faith in America and that's why I love this country." Stans was shedding tears of relief by the time the lengthy 15-count verdict had been read. "I've been reborn," he told a newsman. "I was innocent all along, but it's good to have it confirmed." In Washington, Deputy White House Press Secretary Gerald Warren said of President Nixon: "The President was very pleased for the two men and for their families." Sen. Sam J. Ervin, D-N.C., chairman of the Senate Watergate committee, said he sees no connection between the verdict and future Watergate cases. "Each case stands on its own bottom,'' he said. Vesco, who was indicted with Stans and Mitchell and lives in exile in Costa Rica, called the verdict the "first fair verdict I've heard in a longtime."
