Farm implement salesman beaten A Dallas man, who refused to identify an assailant he said followed him from Clarksville, Tex., to a Dallas truck stop, was treated last week at Parkland Hospital in Dallas for multiple injuries including a smashed cheekbone and three broken ribs. William T. Latham, a 38- year-old farm implement salesman, told police that the Wednesday night incident which took place before several witnesses, stemmed from a 2- week-old incident that began in a Clarksville night club and involved alleged irregularities in the sale and purchase of farm equipment within the Ark-La- Tex, a four-states region including parts of Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. Latham said the argument resumed Wednesday night during a second confrontation outside the Clarksville club. He said he was followed from the club to Dallas and was beaten when he refused to return to Clarksville with the assailant in the assailant's car. Explosion wrecks judge's apartment PARIS i AP) - A violent early morning explosion wrecked the Paris apartment of a French magistrate Tuesday. It was the latest in a string of terrorist attacks that have left police punled since there is no clear pattern of objectives. There was no indication who might have planted the explosive which destroyed the apartment of Judge Louis Zollinger in the fashionable 16th district of Paris. No one was occupying the apartment at the lime. A fancy food store, a luxury night club, a suburban railway station, the Corsican vacation home of a former deputy, and a union headquarters in Cambrai were among the 16 targets that have been damaged by bombs in the past 8 days. The ministry of interior has listed 548 attacks by explosives in 1977, compared to 480 in 1976. Three persons have been slightly injured in the series of nighttime attacks during the past week. Property damage was obviously the sole objective. In only two cases have any organirations claimed responsibility for the attacks. The clandestine Corsican National Liberation Front has said that it organized the bombing of the railway station in Viiiepinte, 10 miles northeast of Paris, Monday morning, and the explosion which levelled the Corsican vacation home of Alain Griotte- ray,a veteran Paris politician —Hope (Ark.) Star photo by Billy Burton the blaze at 8 a.m. Tuesday. Damage was reported to the south wall and the outside and front of the attic. No one was believed in the building at the time of the fire. Chaplin buried in simple ceremony VIGOROUS public education campaign against smoking will be waged by the Health, Education and Welfare Department next year, promises Secretary Joseph Calif «mo Jr. He will not, however, seek to cut federal supports for tobacco farmers. CORSffiR - SURVEVE, Switzerland (AP) — Charlie Chaplin was buried this morning in a simple ceremony in the graveyard of this Swiss village where he died Christmas day at the age of 88. The funeral was as he wanted — without fanfare in the little town overlooking Lake Geneva and the majestic French alps where he spent the last 25 years of his life. Only about 30 relatives, close friends and household staffers attended the rain-swept, 20-minute ceremony for the cane- twirling Little Tramp of the silent screen. About 150, reporters and curious villagers observed the ceremony from behind an enclosure set up by police around the burial site. Chaplin's widow Oona, look- ing pale, drawn and tired, was surrounded by seven of their eight children as the Rev. David Miller of the Church of England in Lausanne, and the Rev. Richard Thomson, who looks after Anglicans in this region, officiated. Miller delivered a brief eulogy on the life and work of the great London-born comedian in a low voice audible only to the small group surrounding the grave. Thomson recited The Lord's Prayer. Thomson said Chaplin was not a member of the Church of England, "but he was a supporter." After the prayer the family left, Chaplin's widow in the lead, and drove away in a fleet of Rolls Royce and Mercedes limousines, before the coffin was lowered into the grave. Tuf' c day. neoprnhor 27. 1977 Israel (Continued from Front Pagei Uement. In Moscow, the Communist Party newspaper Pravda called the Sadat-Begin summit a failure and said that the only way to achieve an overall Mideast settlement Is for all parties and their "allies" to cooperate. The newspaper claimed the Israeli prime minister presented warmed-over peace proposals. "All gestures by Cairo were viewed in Tel Aviv as a sign of weakness and readiness to make considerable concessions." Arabic language newspapers in Cairo stressed the positive aspects of the summit talks. But the English-language Egyptian Gazette said that despite Begin's claim that the talks were successful, it is "obvious for all to see that very little progress has been made because of the continuing inflexibility of Mr. Begin and his strategists." Man-in-the-street reaction in Egypt also reflected disappointment. "The Israelis are still insisting on what they want," said taxi driver Saleh Awad. A Suez Canal authority worker in Is- mailia added: "Either the Israelis have the intention to make peace in which case we can settle it, or they don't, in which case it is useless." Sadat and B^gin did agree to upgrade the Cairo conference to a ministerial meeting and set up political and military committees to negotiate the Palestinian issue and Israeli withdrawal from occupied lands. The Jerusalem and Cairo meetings are expected to begin Jan. 15. Meanwhile, Israel's delegation to the Cairo meeting, which began working on an agenda Dec. 14 for a reconvened Geneva peace conference, left for home today after the conference adjourned Monday night. Hardline Arabs denounced the Egyptian-Israeli summit, as expected, and Palestinian guerrillas joined Syria in pledging a stepped-up campaign to thwart Sadat's future peace initiatives. "We will destroy Sadat and his imperialist-Zioaifit backers," said Zuhair Mohsen, leader of the Saiqa group.
