r— Briefly N- War Warning By The Associated Press The semi-official Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram warned today that the next Middle East war could be a nuclear confrontation. It said if Israel failed to agree to a just and lasting peace in the area, Tel Aviv would be responsible. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Liberation Organization said disengagement of Israeli and Syrian forces was a step toward peace, but that it would continue to fight until the Palestinian problem was solved. The statement came as the Israeli-Syrian disengagement on the Golan Heights neared completion, with only the ruins of the town of Quneitra to be given up. WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger appears headed for a dispute over reported serrpt rhanpps in U.S.-Soviet missile levels allowed under the 1972 strategic arms limitation treaty. Kissinger will be questioned about the matter today when he briefs the arms control subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee about President Nixon's Moscow mission later this week. He also scheduled an 11 a.m. news conference. The question was raised publicly by Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., the subcommittee chairman, after resigned disarmament adviser Paul Nitze gave the panel some details about it last Thursday. WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Judiciary Committee is meeting to decide on what witnesses, if any, it should call to clarify the detailed presentation of impeachment evidence it has been hearing since May 9. The panel also may vote today on whether to subpoena more evidence in the milk fund, ITT and Internal Revenue areas of its inquiry. Possible witnesses include John W. Dean III, President Nixon's prime accuser regarding Watergate, and ex-White House special counsel Charles W. Colson, who has said in court that Nixon urged- him to defame Pentagon Papers figure Daniel Ellsberg. The witness list is expected to be short because the committee is under pressure from the Democratic caucus to make its final recommendations by July 15, party sources say. WASHINGTON (AP) — The case of a Lithuanian sailor forced back to his Soviet vessel with the permission of the Coast Guard was among items on which President Nixon was briefed in preparing for his Moscow summit trip. Simas Kudirka, 45—said to be an American citizen—is in a Soviet labor camp in the Urals serving a 10-year prison term for treason. There has been no contact with him since October. His wife and two children and mother are living in Lithuania. He jumped from his Soviet ship to the cutter Vigilant Nov. 23,1970, off Martha's Vineyard, Island, Mass., but the Coast Guard allowed the Russians to take him back. Reaction in Washington was an official "unfortunate" from the State Department, White House orders to prevent it from reoccurring, plus congressional protest. Since then, Lithuanian groups in the United States have said they can prove Kudirka is an American citizen. Part of their claim is supported by the fact his mother was born in Brooklyn! ' GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) — Patrick Coughlin, 24, of Dixon, Neb., drowned Sunday while swimming with companions in an unsupervised gravel pit near here. T$ie body was recovered by the Lewis Township Fire Department scuba team Sunday evening from about 30 feet of water 75 feet from shore. Authorities said Coughlin called for help and his fiancee tried to save him, but he slipped out of her grasp and sank. KANSAS CITY (AP) — Delegates representing the 575,000 member Communications Workers of America Union open their international convention here today with a New Jersey woman challenging the long-entrenched leadership and a men-only.tradition. Mrs. Clara Allen, New Jersey area director, is running for secretary-treasurer in elections to be held Tuesday. Her opponent, for what is considered the number two post in the telephone union, is Louis B. Knecht of Washington, one of three CWA executive vice- presidents. Knecht, a former assistant to Joseph Beirne, longtime union president, has the support of virtually all the officials in the tinernational union, including Beirne. WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. attorney general's secret approval of the extension of billionaire Howard Hughes' gambling empire was linked closely to a $100,000 payment by Hughes to President Nixon's closest friend, the staff of the Senate Watergate committee reports. The report to senators said the apparent decision by Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell to approve Hughes' purchase of the Dunes Hotel in Las Vegas violated the department's own antitrust regulations and "is clothed with the appearance of impropriety." "Except for the fact that the purchase negotiations ultimately fell through for financial reasons wholly unrelated to antitrust considerations, this is a classic case of governmental decision-making for friends," the report said. DALLAS (AP) —A moderate-liberal faction claimed victory after a moderate-liberal faction of Texas Lutherans took a stand calling for re-evaluation of controversial "doctrinal and theological problems" which have split the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. At the same time, conservatives in the church's Texas district applauded a decision for denying financial support for dissident seminary students although urging their return to classes in the synod's St. Louis seminary. Resolutions expressing these views were adopted Sunday as the Texas Lutherans concluded a three-day convention. DETROIT (AP) — Production at six Ford auto plants is scheduled to resume today, and workers who struck the General Motors' assembly plant in Norwood, Ohio last week are set to return Tuesday morning. The walkout at Norwood began last Friday as part of the United Auto Workers' ministrike strategy, aimed at forcing local contract accords at GM's assembly plants by throwing short-duration strikes. Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, June 24, 1974 Daily Record Beautification Proposal — This is an artist's conception of the old public library building as it would appear if a proposal for dressing up older structures in the urban renewal area here is approved. When the library moves into the ne\y civic complex, the building will become available to the Carroll County Historical society for use as a museum and headquarters. The old library was built with funds from the Carnegie Foundation. It is one of several structures in Carroll included in a plan to beautify existing structures. • Mood (Continued From Page 1) nomic observation." It is not that lowans are angry about America's state of affairs as much as they are "just becoming cynical." Government is at the heart of the problem, the economist believes, "not society in general." The administration of President Nixon has an "incredibly poor" record in economics, Stephenson said. "They've managed to combine inflation with unemployment. It takes considerable effort to do it that badly. "Nixon tried to patch up bad spots in the'economy by such things as the price freeze, but introduced all sorts of new dis- tortations." Americans are tiring of "a d i a 1-a-crisis" environment where they learn of impending crises daily through the news media, says Ottumwa Courier Publisher Gerald Moriarity. "The nation, in a sense, is being stampeded by the press," he said. Moriarity is critical of "the Washington press," which he feels has "completely dehumanized" Nixon. Moriarity's readership is the group that buys Everett's gasoline—the same people affected by economic reversals in Ottumwa. But letters to the Courier do not show "much of a defeatist attitude. The publisher expected gloom when the John Morrell & Co. plant closed several months ago and idled 3,000 workers. "But people tend to look for" the silver lining in adversity." Collegue Ed Heins believes lowans are more willing to make themselves heard on issues "But that's a function, hopefully, of the educational system we dedicate ourselves to. . . .that everyone deserves a thorough education to give them the equipment to make decisions for themselves." But to say that because people are more vocal they also are more cynical—"I don't think that's right." Heins estimates that more than half the business done in Iowa is still "by verbal contract." "Almost all of the cattle and hogs in Iowa, for instance, are sold initially by verbal contract," he explained. "They're also sold on the basis of market information that in most cases comes from the newspaper or radio—neither of which offers any ironclad guarantee that the information is even accurate." Morever, there is still a lot of trust between journalists and the people they quote in news stories, Heins said. He pointed out that news- makers have no assurance that journalists will accurately reflect what they have said. Nonetheless, Heins can recall few instances in which a newsman has been asked to submit his story to a news source for examination prior to publication. Deaths, Funerals MRS.
