Telephone: 271-8000 Phoenix, Arizona, Thursday, November 6, 1969 (Six Sections, 100 Pages) 10 cents U.S.., Soviet close to Mideast accord By PETER GROSE New York Times Service WASHINGTON - United States diplomats indicated yesterday that the U.S. and the Soviet Union were close to agreement on the principles for a peace settlement to be negotiated between Israel and the Arab states. 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. — Israel would accept a detailed timetable for 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 Egyptian commandos cross Suez, attack Israeli patrol United Press International Egyptian commandos crossed the Suez Canal yesterday and attacked an Israeli armored patrol, prompting a retaliatory air strike and artillery duels that raged throughout the day. A military spokesman in Cairo said the commandos killed nine Israeli soldiers, destroyed three armored vehicles and captured a wounded Israeli who died after the attack force returned to Egypt. He said Egyptian antiaircraft gunners shot down an Israeli fighter-bomber during a retaliatory air raid Israel launched six hours after the commando raid. An Israeli spokesman in Tel Aviv said two were killed, two wounded and one captured in the first Egyptian raid across the canal since Oct. 21. 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 memodranum 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. 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. They added, however, that the Sisco-Dobrynin talks have by now gone much further than they had then.

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 our Vietnam war policy but Fulbright told newsmen that, while widely different views about what should be done were expressed at yesterday's closed meeting, the members agreed Rogers and Laird should be heard in executive session before a decision is reached on what the committee whould do next.

Seale, national chairman of the Black Panther Party, was held in contempt of U.S. District Court yesterday and sentenced to four years in prison by Judge Julius J. Hoffman. Judge Hoffman sentenced Seale to three months in prison for each of 16 incidents of contempt in the trial of the Panther leader and seven other men on conspiracy charges growing out of riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. At the same time, the judge declared a mistrial for Seale, separating him from the other defendants. He set April 23 for a new trial of Seale on the charges. Seale is being held in the Cook County Jail on a fugitive' warrant from New Haven, Conn, where he is charged with the murder of another member of the Black Panther Party. Judge Hoffman's ruling appeared to resolve the impasse growing out of Seale's repeated interruptions of the trial with the demands that he be allowed to defend himself. 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 lectuni and gegan 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 headquarters?" Judge Hoffman, 74, excused the jury and recessed the session 90 minutes early and spent more than three hours preparing his contempt- citation.

Barry Goidwater, R-Ariz. Graham made, the accuation after Larry Richmond, a-candidate for City Council on Graham's Citizens Ticket, received a telegram from Goldwater yesterday in which the senator said: "My endorsement of the Charter Government Ticket is based solely on my long interest in that and my desire to see it continue.

Graham, who is seeking a fourth term as mayor, apparently based his charge on the publication Wednesday by The Arizona Republic of a portion of a Sept. 26 Goldwater letter to Driggs. In the letter, which Goldwater addressed to "Dear John," the senator wrote: "I am glad that you have accepted the challenge to run for mayor, and I hope that you are elected along with your entire ticket. I know you as an individual and I know of your interest and love for Phoenix. I also know those who are running with you and that they share this same concern." Graham, in commenting on this portion of the letter, said that he, too, "is glad to see John Driggs in this campaign. . .It helps to make a contest out of it, and give the people a choice between an experienced ticket on the one hand, and on the other a group oj seven Continued on Page A-18 By LOGAN McKECHNIE So many attorneys are refusing to have their cases heard by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John E. 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.

Perk, 120,559 to 116,806, an edge of 3,753. The key problems facing Stokes, in addition to hostility to him among the police, are a rising crime rafe and air and water pollution. 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. Flaherty's victory in a May primary broke a deeply entrenched Democratic machine. On Tuesday, he easily defeated Republican John K. Tabor, 118,666 to 62,541.
