GranvUIe S\ Cooper, Vincents, Ind., told police he had been at a nearby tavern earlier and had flashed the money which he kept hidden in part of his wallet to the bartender and another man, when the conversation turned to "hard times.'; Later, he awoke in his room and found the front door open and the money missing from his wallet. Police are looking for the man Cooper saw in the tavern whose description matches that of a man seen by a night clerk getting out of a cab at' the motel. In other police news: An employe of the Morrisey Development Co., Godfrey, reported two power saws, total value $285, were stolen from a Joesting Avenue development Tuesday. A foreman on the job told police that the two saws ^ad been "well hidden" to avert possible theft. Entry to the building was made through a broken window, according to police. The Alton N. 0. Nelson Plumbing Supply Co., 129 Indiana, was broken into Tuesday according to police. Entry was made through a loading-dock door where a • padlock had been pried away. However, nothing was determined as missing, company officials said this morning.

Mike Simpson, address not given, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon by Alton police Tuesday after he was found in possession of a 10-inch switchblade. Police arrested Simpson after Linda Handling, 117C Washington Manor Apartments, told them Simpson had threatened her. East Alton Police Chief Ebert Grimes said today that a solicitation by the Illinois Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police is not endorsed by his department. The chief said some businesses in East Alton have received calls from the organization asking for donations. He said the East Alton department doesn't have anything to do with it. Last year, about this same time, the organization was soliciting for a dance. Mrs. Eva M. Stocks, 56, of 821 2nd St. in Bethalto, was charged with careless and negligent driving following a three-car crash at Main and Monroe streets in East Alton Tuesday afternoon. .Police said Mrs. Stocks had made a left turn off Monroe Street onto Main, but lost control of her car, which smashed into the two cars, and then into a fence. Drivers of the other vehicles were James M. Walker Jr., 28, of 113 Southern in 'Roxana, and Glen D. Gaddy, 31, of 2408 Edwards St. in Alton. United Nations "ready not only to present our position trot also to listen." Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, speaking in Cairo, labeled Israel's decision to rettrtn to the peace talks a "maneuver" and ordered his country to get ready for deep Israeli raids after the Middle East cease-fire expires Feb. 8. ' He gave virtual assurance that Egypt will not agree to extension of the cease-fire without a timetable for Israeli withdrawal from territories occupied in the June 196? war. Registration extended for art courses EDWARDSVILLE, Registration for courses at the Performing Arts Training Center in East St. Louis will be extended through Jan. 4, to coincide with Southern Illinois University registration on the Edwardsville campus. The registrar's office on 526 North 10th St., in East St. Louis will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily including Monday, Jan. 4. All facilities will be closed on New Year's Day. Sadat spoke .at a closed meeting of the Arab socialist Union, Egypt's only political party. Cairo newspapers reported the speech. Mrs. Meir spoke before the Knesset, Israel's parliament, after it voted 87-27 and with 0 abstentions to rejoin the negotiations with U.K. mediator Gunnar Jarring as the go-between. Israel withdrew from the talks Sept. 6, before they really got started, charging hat Egypt had violated the cease-fire by moving antiaircraft missiles closer to the Suez Canal. Mrs. Meir urged Egypt to agree to an extension of the cease-fire and warned Cairo against any renewal of the fighting. She added that recent contacts with Washington have shown increased U.S. support for Israel's refusal to withdraw from the occupied territories until binding peace agreements are reached. She reiterated Israel's rejection of U.S. Secretary of State William P. Rogers' call for Israel to agree to only minor changes in the borders it had before the 1967 war. Israel's decision to return to the peace negotiations does not include any commlment to agre to the Rogers proposals or any other plan, she said.' Sadat said Egypt's armed forces are "now stronger than ever before," and "we have reached the stage where we can say, 'No, we shall not extend the cease-fire." "Every one of us should be on the battlefront within two weeks because the enemy— knowing he cannot repeat June 5, 1967, against our army—will concentrate on the internal front," Sadat said. Sadat said Egypt accepted the first extension of the cease-fire "because we felt the world wanted us to ... but this time it is clear America and Israel are maneuvering." "America will find some logic in demanding another extension," he said, "on the basis of Israel's return to the Jarring talks, but we know this will be a dilatory tactic and they do not intend to implement the November U.N. resolution." He was referring to the U.N. Security Council resolution of November 1967, which called for a peace settlement including Israeli withdrawal from the-'occupied territories and Arab recognition of Israel's right to exist as a state within secure boundaries. Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban told a news conference today that "such talk of stopping the cease-fire is irresponsible these speeches are not elements which generate negotiating atmosphere." Meanwhile, sources in the Israeli town of Tiberias reported that Lebanese soldiers and Arab guerrillas fought for several hours Tuesday night around the Lebanese village of Bennt Jbafl, about two miles from the frontier. the sources said shelling and light arms fire could be heard clearly and that flares occasionally lit the battle scene. Bennt Jbail is a few miles from Yaatar, which Israeli forces attacked Sunday night.
