The reports oame a day after Cairo claimed its gunners shot down one of two Israeli warplanes that invaded Egyptian air space over the Suez Cainal. Israel denied thai accusation as a "double lie" but had no immediate com,men.t on today's reports from Lebanon. Newsmen In Sidon said the planes passed over the city at medium altitude in a northerly direction and later returned by the same route at sub-sonic speed. The district where windowpanes- were reported broken contains two Palestinian, refugee camps, Ain el Telwa and Miyeh wia Miyeh. A military spokesman in Cairo said Egyptian air defenses brought down \an Israeli Phantom, jet figlhiter-bomber, one oif two that encroached on Egyptian territory in the late afternoon, near Fayed in the canal's southern sector.

Elsewhere, Palestinian guerrilla sources in Beirut said their forces early Thursday opened fire on an Israeli boat that approached tihe Lebanese coast of Sidon. The sources said the firing continued for 40 minutes and the Israeli boat, about two miles offshore, sped off without returning the fire. Serious Crime Rate Declines One Per Cent WASHINGTON (UPI) - Serious crime declined one per cent in the nation during the first three months of 1973, but crime in the suburbs and rural areas continued to increase, the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports showed today. Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson reported that 100 of the nation's largest cities reported actual reductions in serious crime during the first quarter of 1973. Eighty-eight cities showed a decrease in the same period of 1972. Serious crime showed a three per cent decrease in the same period last year. The figures in the crime reports are based on nationwide crime statistics contributed by local, county 'and state law enforcement agencies. ' ...

Highway 6 toward Phnom Penh today as Communist troops closed behind them, at the Prek Kdam ferry crossing 18 miles north of the capital, field reports said. "Five taxis came barrelling down the road and about 30 Communists got out of them," said a UP.I. photographer who returned from the scene. "They had taken the taxis—no one knew from, where—then all the refugees gave .up ideas of getting back and headed for the ferry, the Communists shooting warning shots in the air behind us." Abandon Position The refugees fought and | struggled for places on a single : ferry boat that crossed the ;Tonle Sap River and a j company of 30 soldiers requested permission to evacuate.

UPI field reporters said the civilian exodus started Thursday when the town of Battheay, 12 miles north of the ferry crossing, fell to invading Communists. Battheay was surrounded all day, and attacked heavily from all sides during the night. The encircled government troops plunged through Communist lines to the south and broke out of the trap after suffering heavy casulties in close combat despite heavy U.S. air support, refugees told reporters. It was the second major town on Highway 6 to fall within a week. The town of Phauv, four miles north of Battheay, fell Tuesday night at a cost of more* than 40 killed. A U.S. spotter pilot flying over Highway 6 early today radioed "the road is just covered with a lot of bodies." At least four large government positions were trapped behind Communist lines on Highway 6. ABOVE ALL MAKE IT WHITE'S ROOFING 342-0185 HOUSTON (UPI) - The world's balance of nature is out of whack, but the knowledge gained from Skylab may help man put it back in order, according to space center's program director. "The benefits (of Skylab) as of today are nothing more than the technology that has been developed," Kenneth S. Kleinknecht, program director at the Johnson Space Center, said Thursday in a news conference. "But man will benefit from now on from that technology. We had another unparalleled success in Skylab. Ecological Data He said by applying the data obtained by Skylab space pioneers Charles "Pete" Conrad, Joseph Kerwin and Paul J. Weitz in their record-foreaking 28-day spaceflight, "We can better manage the resources and ecology of the earth. We can all realize the ecological balance jn the world is in jeopardy > : artd anything . that helps is good." . v, ' Kleinknecht said ' it , .;• was significant the nation had flown] its first space station and learned it's- easier for man to work in space than expected.

"We found it's a lot easier to work in space than we expected." The chief astronaut physician, Dr. Royce Hawkins, said veteran space flier Conrad had the least problem readapting to gravity, and he had also gotten more inflight exercise than his fellow crewmen. Hawkins said he's recom­ mending two other Skylab crews scheduled to man the giant orbiting ship for 56 days each this year get more exercise on their trips. He said one interesting finding was that the astronauts didn't become dizzy in space while performing head movements as they sat in a whirling chair. They became dizzy before the flight on the ground Government Paid for Stereo NEWARK, N.J. (UPI) While prosecutors worked on the fifth floor of the Federal Building here charging people with crimes, Albert Smith was down in the basement committing one. Smith, 52, admitted Thursday that while he managed the government's self-service Store in the Federal, Building basement;.he billed Uncle-Sam $650 which he spent on his own personal .stereo equipment. Smith pleaded,' guilty to Shuffling -'invoices and making fraudulent statements so the government paid for what it thought were legitimate items required by federal employes. He could get up to five years in prison. Guests at Berwick BERWICK — Dr. and Mrs Charles Flynn, Oxford, Ohio, visited June 23-24 with her par­ entis, Mr. and Mrs. Vance Eaton.

The Skylab mission scientist, astronaut Robert Parker, said the officials are "extremely pleased with the first data," still being analyzed, from the space station's earth resources and sun-watching instruments. Another official, Richard Wilmarth, director of earth resources experiments, said the complex instruments used to take detailed, closeup pictures of the globe all operated well. He said at least one use investigators think they can make of one of the instruments is in predicting the wave heights and wind velocity of tropical storms.
