Nasser Vows Fight to Regain All Territory Lost to Israel A S I DO every year, I took a week's vacation to clean out the garage. The garage is my Augean stable. But even Hercules might not have been man enough for the job this time. I once imagined it woukl become easier with the years, especially after the boys had grown up and left home. It is worse. Everything they ac- | to fight to oust 'the Israeli CAIRO, EGYPT (REUTKRS) i — President Gamal Abdel Nas-' ser Wednesday night pledged Egypt would fight to regain all territory lost to Israel during the six-day war of 1967. "This will be costly operation. It moans war. We shall fight to regain our usurped land," he declared amid loud applause from 1,700 delegates attending a national meeting of Egypt's Arab Socialist Union. "Our Duty" Egypt was beginning the stage of liberating its occupied territories, the president declared. "We have to fight to restore our territory," he said.

They may not be discarded or given to the Salvation Army or the Goodwill. One dare not throw away troops." Nasser added, "We do not mean Sinai alone, but all occupied Arab land — Jerusalem first of all, the West Bank, the Golan Heights, Gaza and all Arab land." Speaking three days after the biggest clash between Israel and Egyptian forces since the 1967 war. Nasser told the congress, "Today we can be proud of our armed forces."

It isn't hard for me to give up my own faded souvenirs. I try to live in the present. __J My wife, though, is a squirrel; she was raised in a house with an attic, and is not content unless every pressed flower and tearstained handkerchief is safely entombed in a cardboard box somewhere. Over (he years I have managed to do away with a lot of this impedimenta, but I have never been able to solve the problem of the Christmas ornaments. They are sacred. I can think of nothing that takes up so much space and is so easily replaced as a Christmas ornament. They are mostly gaudy baubles full of air. mHIS YEAR I reached the J_ end of my patience.

The answer is yes — every Arab everywhere has rejected surrender and has declared his will to continue fighting whatever the cost," he said. Nasser said Egypt's recent military operations along the canal — the raids across the waterway and hand-to-hand fighting — were designed to acquaint Egyptian fighters with the enemy, give them experience and explode the myth of the invincibility of Israel. Nasser accused the United States and Britain of continuing STRIKE COULD ! STOP FLIGHTS WASHINGTON, D.C.

"We will slow the system down where nothing will m6ve If necessary to insure safety," Administrator John Shaffer of the Federal Aviation Administration told a Senate subcommittee. Shaffer said the FAA also had plans for the Army's air controllers to help fill any Jobs left vacant. Spokesmen for the Professional Air Traffic Controllers' Organization have warned several thousand controllers will quit if the FAA disciplines 477 of their number who failed to report for work June 18, 19 and 20 and caused traffic jams at the nation's airports. The workers who direct the flow of airplanes into and out of airports around the nation have complained of an excessive 1 workload, low salaries, excessive overtime and inadequate vacations. Senator Vance Hartke, (Dem., Ind.), charged Shaffer with deliberately 'inflaming the situation by eliminating the dues checkoff which the FAA had collected for the union.

The "racket," as he described it, arises because the official who makes such a gift is allowed to deduct from his income the appraised value of the papers. Williams said it has been reported that former Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey "is giving the Minnesota Historical Society 589 boxes bulging with documents from his career as mayor of Minneapolis and senator from Minnesota," and may have received a deduction for them. It also has been reported, he said, that former President Lyndon B. Johnson may be planning to deduct the value of 20 million items he is donating to his presidential library at the University of Texas. "One of the things that bothers me about getting special tax benefits through the gift of official papers is that the parties doing this are making a profit from 'charitably' giving what are really official papers which, in my opinion, properly belong to the government and not to them as individuals'," Williams said; "I a sure that in many cases many of the papers are just plain junk, but to the extent they do have value, they were developed by government officials on government time with the aid of- government staff personnel, were typed by government secretaries on government paper and were even stored in government files." Williams would limit such deductions to whatever the papers cost the official.
