No New Patches For Gabor Eyes BALTIMORE I/P) — One publicized eye patch may be all right in the Gabor family but not a second, Magda Gabor insisted yesterday after a doctor prescribed a patch for eye injury.

She said she had been slugged by Porfirio Bubirosa,. the much-married Dominican diplomat. Magda is now appearing here in a comedy, "Pajama Tops."

Delaware county is the leading dairy county of New York state. government spokesman said the move had had "no repercussions in the Army" and no reaction was expected from the military. Those arrested ranged in rank from lieutenant to major. The arrests also were another step in solidifying Nasser's control following his relegation of the former government head, Maj. Gen. Mohamed Naguib, to a figurehead presidency April 18. The government spokesman, Capt. Shems Eddin, said several of those arrested were officers of a cavalry unit which had played an important role in bringing Naguib back to the presidency Feb. 25, after Naguib forced him to quit in the first round of their struggle for power. The cavalry unit was commanded by Maj, Khaled Mohieddin, ousted from the Revolutionary Council in March and now in Europe. Eddin said the arrested officers were being held in an army camp while an investigating committee prepared formal charges against fliem. He said the Revolutionary Council had not decided whether they would be tried by a courts- martial or before the Revolutionary Court set up to judge activities during Farouk's regime. The Revolutionary Council decided its surprise move on the army elements at an all-night meeting, lasting until almost dawn today, at army headquarters in Kubbeh suburb. Squads of military police went out shortly before dawn to round up the officers. Eddin said the officers picked up had worked closely with the "United Front," the political faction formed by Mustafa el Nahas' Wafdist party, the Socialists and the Communists last February when the military junta announced its decision to withdraw from the political scene this summer. That decision was reversed and political parties again were outlawed when Nasser finally won out 10 days ago hi his struggle with Naguib. Man Almost Shot By a Rivet Gun READING, Pa.
