Alton Evening Telegraph Thursday, Sept. 7, It's efforts 3972 reconciliation with Arabs hurt By ROON LEWALD BONN (AP) - The bullets that brought death to the 1972 Olympics may also have shat t e t e d Chancellor Willy Brandt's long-prepared reconciliation with the Arab world. Three months ago, Egypt became the sixth country to pledge resumption of diplomatic ties with Bonn, seven years after the 10 nation Arab break-off when West Germany recognized Israel in 1965. Only five days before <he Arab guerrilla operation that left 11 Israeli sportsmen dead in Munich, unofficial \\csi German-Egyptian talks ended in the Olympic city with he No tax increase pledged by Nixon By GAYLORD SHAW WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican congressional leaders emerged from a meeting with President NKGII today and relayed a presidential pledge '.hat "there will be no tax increase proposed by this administration." Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania and House GOP Lead?'Gerald Ford of Michigan, said they assumed when Nixon said "this administration" he meant there would be no tax increase proposed to the next Congress. "No time limit was discussed," said Ford. At a White House news conference following their two- hour meeting with Nixon, the two GOP leaders continupq the drumfire of Repnbli-an criticism of Democr;>l'c presidential nominee George McGovern's proposals. Scott said what he ca''e.1 McGovern's "scheme a day" proposals would result in a $100-billion increase in th* federal budget and require a 100 per cent m increase. announcement of a milestone visit to Bonn this month by Foreign Minister Mohammed Murad Ghaleb. Now the visit — the first such since the 1965 break — appears in doubt. "Nobody knows," a Foreign Ministry spokesman said when aske>i if Ghaleb's visit was still on. One newspaper called on the government to cancel U,e visit. The anti-Arab reaction i n official circles w.;s demonstrated by I IT? resignation of Rudolf Werner from the cochairmanship of an Arab-German friendship group in the Bundestag, Iru lower house of Parliarrvnl. Werner, a member of tho opposition Christian Democratic party, said he would not rejoin the group until Arab governments clearly condemn terrorism. Brandt himself was clearly angered by the lack of response from Arab leaders to his personal appeal for intervention to save the Israeli hostages. A spokesma/i for the chancellor told the television audience Bom's relations with Cairo had been strained because President Anwar Sadat refused help when Brandt telephoned him to ask for safe passage for the Israelis should West Germany let the guerrillas fly their hostages to Cairo. Even Hans-Juergen Wis- chewski, the leading expert on the Middle East in Brandt's Social Democratic party dm' the chief architect of Arab- German reconciliation, said in statement that the "murderous terrorism" had caused "irreparable harm" to ih» Arab name in West Germany and the rest of the world. The disenchantment in th? wake of Tuesday's tragedy was by no means one-sideri. "The killing could have been avoided if the German poH:c had not deceived the Palestinians," a columnis'. wrote in the semioff'cial E g yp I i a n newspaper A: Ahram. Elble continues attack on tax collection fees By L. ALLEN KLOPE Telegraph Staff Writer "Taxpayers in Wood River Township would have been better off if we had collected our own taxes," said Supervisor Rodger Elble, commenting angrily on the county collecting method which charges all taxing bodies a fee, which he claims is unconstitutional. Elble said Wood River Township taxpayers will pay over $330,000 to the county for having the taxes collected here, when it could have been done for less than $50,000. He told the board of auditors Wednesday night that the township collector, last year, collected over $7.8 million for less than $40,000, but this year, under the county collecting method, the charge will be over $330,000. "Besides that," he said, "we should have at least 75 per cent of our payment by now, but have only received a fraction of that amount." Elble told the auditors he wants an independent auditing firm to check all county books to see just how much the If you fail to receive your Telegraph by 5:30 p.m. phone 465-6641 before 6 p.m. and your copy will be delivered. collecting will actually cost. "I don't want any local auditing firms, preferably one from out of the county, or better yet, out of the state," he stressed. Elble said a meeting with Judge William Beatty last week failed to resolve anything, even though there are several suits filed by taxing bodies against the county treasurer. He said the discussion in the informal hearing centered around possible compromises, "but I don't want any compromises. . . either we're right or we're wrong," he said. Citing other examples, Elble said that of the 102 Illinois counties — only seven have charged a fee for collecting taxes, while the rest have absorbed the cost. He mentioned Macoupin County, which has finished its collection, and already has paid out all the monies to the taxing bodies. "Why can't we have that in Madison County?" Elble asked. Donald Smith, township attorney, said another hearing is scheduled with Judge Beatty next Wednesday in an effort to resolve the problem.

(AP Wircphotn) McGovern tries pinning tax loophole label on Connally By GREGG HERRINGTON DALLAS (AP) — George McGovern is in Texas trying to cement former Gov. John B. Connally into position as a symbol of special interests and tax loopholes. McGovern, the Democratic presidential candidate, said late Wednesday that if Connally —a Democrat turned supporter of President Nixon — were boosting McGovern's White House hopes instead, "I'd really know I was off the track." "It hasn't surprised me at all that John Connally and his billionaire friends have decided they are more at home supporting Richard N ixo n ' s brand of Republicanism than they are backing the Democratic national ticket this year," McGovern told a crowd of about 3,000 in downtown Dallas. He contrasted Connally to two other well known Texans — the late Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn and former President Lyndon B. Johnson, whom McGovern visited at the LBJ Ranch last month. Those men, McGovern told the enthusiastic and predominantly young crowd, Black training plan (Continued from Page One) Council which recruits trainees and also helps place them on the job. agreed to provide the EOAC with data on the number of trainees who have worked and for hmv long. A special assistant to Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie Julius Hovany, who has been s'.ate coordinator for the Ogilvit plan during the past several months, has- discouraged further training this year and urged concentration on getting all men already trained in to full-time jobs. An East SI. Louis Team- ster's Union official told !.he EOAC that all 10 of his Ogilvie plan trainees his union took earlier this summer, now have full-time jobs. The committee agreed to delay any final decision on additional training until li gets accurate statistics on the job records on men trained so far. In other business, the committee stipulated that Ogilvie plan graduates shcwd be paid not less than 90 per cent of journeymen's wages. This is a change from the original agreement whh-h stipulated a minimum of 75 per cent. "never ran away from the Democratic ticket in a presidential election year." In this, his second vist to the populous and therefore poltically important state, McGovern planned appearances today at a Dallas supermarket to illustrate what he terms the failure of the Presdent's anti-inflation efforts, and a trip to the Houston Space Center. In other McGovern campaign developments: —The Democratic hopeful stressed harder than any time since his nomination that his campaign needs money. "We've been trying to be as optimistic as we could," he said in a television in- interview in San Diego Wednesday before leaving for Texas. "But I think the time has come for us to let people know that we need money. We need help. It is uphill." By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (AP) — The Nixon administration is pushing on a broad diplomatic front for international agreement on ways of curbing terrorists. But no such accord is expected soon. Late Wednesday, the State Department called in envoys from 40 countries to start consultations on what might be done to prevent recurrpnce of such incidents as thf mass murder of Israeli Olympic athletes seized by Arab commandos. Department spokesman Charles Bray said afterward that the diplomatic talks may go on "for days, weeks and months." It is "obviously a very complex, difficult and perhaps protracted problem," he said. Administration strategists resisted calls for a quick crackdown on specific Arab countries, though Washington reverberated with exhortations for tough action. Blaming the Egyptian and Lebanese governments for the murders, Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern said President Nixon should demand that Egypt "root out these international outlaws" as a price for resuming diplomatic relations. The Senate voted 82 to 0 in favor of economic sanctions against nations harboring terrorists. Administration officials said their information still is unclear as to the membership of the Black September group blamed for the Munich terror, nor can they be sure of its sources of support. They contended that public fingerpointing at foreign governments at this stage is hot a good way of enlisting their cooperation in curbing terrorists. Yet there was also apprehension among U.S. of- LOW INTEREST AND LOW, LOW CLOSING COSTS! HOME LOANS! n INTEREST ON 80% OR ?

Israeli Ambassador Yitzhak Rabin left open the possibility of Israeli retaliation in talkng to reporters after an hour- long session with Secretary of State William P'. Rogers. But Rabin stressed the need for making clear the respon- s i b i 1 i t i e s of governments against terrorists. He said Egypt, Syria and Lebanon lend use of their territory to anti-Israeli terrorists and Libya, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia help finance them. The Israeli envoy said. without elaboration, that he and Rogers "agreed about certain actions to be taken." He included security measures among these. Bray said Israel, which wants the current Olympics halted, did not ask the United States to withdraw its team. The American Olympic Committee has decided to stay in the Olympic games. Communist offensive surges with new tank-led assault By GKORGK ESl'KR SAIGON (AP) — The .V/ 2 Month Communist offensive surged to a new high point today with a tank-led assault on a district town south of the Que Son Valley and a sapper assault on a South Vietnamese divisional headquarters in the Mekong Delta only 40 miles below Saigon. Field reports said 22 South Vietnamese soldiers were killed and 77 wounded in the sapper attack, carried out by a small Viet Cong and North Vietnamese unit at the Vinh Nhi base camp near Highway 4, which connects the delta with Saigon. At Tien Phuoc district town, only 12 miles west of the vital north-south Highway 1 and 10 miles south of Que Son, battles raged in the streets throughout the day. It was the first time enemy tanks were used in the area, which is aiso 40 miles south of Da Nang. Reports from the embattled town were confused and contradictory, but at one point in the afternoon contact was lost between the district headquarters in Tien Phuoc and the province headquarters in Tarn Ky, 12 miles northeast of the town. Officers in the field said an estimated five enemy battalions — more than 1,000 troops — supported by tanks were attacking Tien Phuoc from the northwest and the northeast. They said mortar and recoilless rifle fire was hitting government positions at the rate of four rounds a minute. The South Vietnamese threw hundreds of reinforcements into the battle for the town, which had been defended by one battalion of militiamen and one regular infantry battalion — about 1,000 men in all. However, field in formants said not all the reinforcements had been able to link up. Low cloud cover limited allied air support but American helicopter gunships destroyed two Soviet-built PT76 tanks that were spotted Wednesday about two miles northwest of the town, sources reported.
