The coming week or so, according to an American official, "will be a watershed—one way or the other" in the international peacemaking effort that began in February and entered its present intensive phase last September at the United Nations. The administration is awaiting a definitive Soviet statement concurring with the basic guidelines for a settlement which have emerged in a long series of confidential talks between the Soviet ambassador, Anatoly F. Dobrynin, and Joseph J. Sisco, assistant secretary of state for the Near East and South Asia. These guidelines are understood to include the following: —The detailed settlement would be determined by Israel and the Arab states, negotiating under an ambiguous formula which had brought the two sides together at the Mediterranean island of Rhodes in 1949. — The Arab states would formally state their intention of concluding a "binding and lasting" peace to replace the uneasy armistice which has existed for the last two decades. the withdrawal of its forces from territories occupied in the June 1967 war, to new frontiers yet to be drawn but "mutually agreed upon" among the states of the area. , — An international military force would be established in the area as a buffer along the negotiated frontiers, its presence to be controlled and guaranteed by the major powers. Diplomats acknowledged that all these points would be highly controversial in the Middle Eastern capitals, so warned against any expectations that a Soviet-American agreement would in itself lead smoothly to a peace settlement. They outlined the stages that lie ahead: If the Soviet Union and the U.S. achieve what diplomats call "parallel positions" along these general principles, they would present a memorandum embodying their accord to a meeting with France and Britain. The four, which reportedly are scheduled to meet at the U.N. about the middle of this month, would submit their design for the settlement to the U. N. representative for the Middle East, Dr. Gunnar V. Jarring of Sweden, who would in turn present it to the warring parties. It would be up to the. Arab and Israeli governments to establish detailed arrangements -to resolve the complex problems of the Arab refugees and the future status of Jerusalem—the latter issue, for example, has scarcely been discussed by Sisco and Dobrynin. — Israel would accept a detailed timetable for It was'reported in the authoritative Cairo news- paper Al Ahram that Sisco had outlined the principles under discussion in a meeting Friday with the Egyptian diplomatic representative in Washington, Ashraf Ghorbal. In the absence of formal diplomatic relations between the United Arab Republic and the U.S., Ghorbal is accredited here as a minister in the Indian embassy. The Israeli ambassador, Yitzhak Rabin, conferred with Under Secretary of State Elliott L. Richardson the same day. Israel's foreign minister, Abba Eban, told an Israeli television audience that he knew of no actual agreements between the Soviet Union and the United States. Officials of the United States called particular attention to a statement made in Moscow on Friday by Leonid I. Zamyatin, chief of the press department of the Soviet Foreign Ministry, that his government held "an optimistic attitude" about the talks with the U.S. American diplomats noted that their hopes for a common position with Moscow had been high last May and June, only to be dashed once the Russians finally produced more rigid' views in writing on June 17. Neither Arabs nor Israelis have concurred—or even been asked by the U.S. to concur—in the points involved between Moscow and Washington. But the State Department spokesman, Robert J. McCloskey, said yesterday that "there is a continuing effort to keep the parties in the Middle East up to date" on the international peacemaking efforts.

Senate defers public hearings on Viet policy Associated Press WASHINGTON - The Senate Foreign Relations Committee dropped plans yesterday for public hearings on the Vietnam war while it seeks additional word on President Nixon's policy to cut back U.S. involvement. Secretary of State William P. Rogers and Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird will be asked to testify during the week of Nov. 17 in closed session instead of in public as originally planned. Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., the committee chairman, said they will be asked about questions Nixon himself raised in his Monday night address to the nation; as well as other aspects of the Vietnam situation. Fulbright said he hopes they will talk frankly. He was asked if the committee wants further information about just what the President has in mind before deciding whether to schedule a new round of public hearings on the war. "I think it could be put that way," Fulbright said, adding he hopes the committee can go "much deeper into the rationale of the President's speech." Fulbright and some other members of the committee have been among the sharpest congressional critics of U.S. Vietnam war policy but Fulbright told newsmen that, while widely different views about what should be, done were expressed at yesterday's closed meet, ing, the members* agreed Rogers and Laird should be heard in executive session before a decision is reached on what the committee whould do next.

The judge ordered Oct. 29 that Seale be bound and gagged in an effort to stifle the disruptions. He relented, without explanation, Monday and Seale continued to voice his demands to cross-examine witnesses. The dispute reached the breaking point earlier yesterday when defense lawyers William M. Kunstler and Leonard I. Weinglass refused to cross-examine a California sheriff's deputy who 'testified about Seale. They said they did not represent Seale. Seale went to the lecturn and began questioning the witness: "Did you ever kill a Black Panther member? Why did you follow me to the airport? Have you ever taken part in raids at Black Panther headquartez's?" Judge Hoffman, 74, excused the jury and recessed the session 90 minutes early and spent more than three hours preparing his contempt 1 citation.

Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., spelled put in no uncertain terms yesterday his wholehearted endorsement of the John Driggs ticket for may'pr and city council of Phoenix. Goldwater did so after being informed, in Honolulu that Driggs' opponent, incumbent Mayor Graham, had accused Driggs and the "monopoly press" of Phoenix of conniving to "stretch the truth" about the Goldwater endorsement.

Both Goldwater and Wynn are in Honolulu to attend the Western Republican Conference. Goldwater said he endorsed Priggs and the Charter Government Ticket because he was worried that when the two- term precedent for persons serving as mayor and as councilmen is broken, it can end with someone completely entrenching himself in city hall. "This could break up the whole Charter Government idea," Goldwater said. Goldwater noted that the average city, reform movement lasts about six years, while Charter Government has continued for 20 years.

Burke that the other judges are having to take his trials, The Arizona Republic learned yesterday. But, Burke said yesterday he cannot say how many cases he has transferred from his court. Neither can the county court administrator nor can the Arizona Supreme Court, which has administrative control of the Superior Court. "I don't consider it a problem," Burke told The Arizona Republic. However, Presiding Judge Charles L. Hardy does consider it a problem and has sent the following to the 22 other judges on the county bench: "So many affidavits of bias and prejudice are being filed against Judge Burke that it is no longer feasible to have each of such cases assigned to a new judge by the normal procedure. Indeed, many judges are balking at taking any new cases from Judge Burke.

He says he will continue to strengthen the police department, while insisting on continued civilian control. Flaherty, 45, the insurgent Democrat moving into Pittsburgh's City Hall, said his first order of business will be to try reducing the city's record high budget. And he said he will meet with the leaders of civil rights groups pressing for more construction industry jobs for Negroes.
