Hermon. on the Lebanese- Syrian border overlooking t h e Golan Heights. The Israeli command said its warplanes strafed Syrian troops near the summit of Mt. Hermon for two hours today as Israeli engineers continued building new defenses and fortifying bunkers. All the planes returned safely, the command said. A Syrian communique said ils missiles again repulsed Israeli warplanes. but it made no mention of casualties. Both sides reported changes on artillery ex- Mt.

Draff Sfafement On Beaver Lake Now Available LITTLE ROCK -- A draft environmental statement for Beaver Lake located on t h e White River in northwest Arkansas has been . prepared by the Little Rock District of t h e · U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and filed with the Council on Environmental Quality in Washington, D.C. with copies sent to state and federal agencies for their review. ' Colonel Don Weinert, Little Rock District Engineer, s a i d copies of the statement may be obtained by w r i t i n g the Little Rock District, P.O.

Beaver Lake is located nine miles northwest of Eureka Springs. Arkansas, and has a · shoreline of .449 miles. It attracted more than 3 million visitors last year. the group is basically a show of force. "It is not oui- intention to run into an encounter, but in the event that we sec that situation develop, then we're prepared to defend ourselves," he said. To gain official status for the unit, the caucus has put James Gilbert of North Little Rock in the race for constable of Hill Township. Shelton said the plan is for members of the unit to work as deputy constables under Gilbert if he wins. Gilbert said he is training the unit in weaponry. He said the organization did own machine guns. Shelton would not reveal the size of the group's arsenal. Gilbert said he planned to seek county and federal funds For the constable's office so that members of the unit could work as paid, full-time deputy constables. A lawyer is researching the possible use of citizen's arrest powers to allow unit members to take drug pushers into custody, Shelton said. He expressed fear that the pushers' white financial backers would react violently to the anti-drug program. The unit would use force only if there was a "frontal attack" by the drug underworld, he said. Shelton' said the unit currently is researching black neighborhoods to identify the street pushers and the white money people" who allegedly finance illict drug traffic. The anti-drug force also will seek to persuade black pushers to lake legitimate jobs, Shelton said. He would not say how many men are in the unit. However, Gilbert said that seven men were being trained as a special armed force and that about 40 Miners Relum Following Order SILVER DAY. Minn.

The panel stayed a lower court ruling which ordered Reserve shut down until May 15, when It said the tull circuit court would hold a Hoar- ing to determine whether to allow the company to continue operating while a full appeal is heard. The Saturday ruling by U.S. District Judge Miles Lord in Minneapolis ordered Reserve's huge iron ore processing plant at Silver Bay shut down at 12:01 a.m. Sunday because of pollution into Lake Superior.

However, Weeks said he did not approve of the plan which he said sounded like a vigilante organization. "We would appreciate it if they have information, but never would we recognize them as a vigilante group," he said.

Indications are that Nixon himself let his anger show when the Judiciary Commute formally requested more tapes beyond the 42 conversations il has subpoenaed for its impeachment inquiry. BITTER COMPLAINTS And, inside top White House councils, there are increasingly bitter complaints about specia Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski's quest for White House tapes and documents.

Security analysts and government officials said the huge jump in profits is bound to affect debate over an energy bill now in Congress. They said the earnings, added to similar stong gains in the last three months of 1973, may lead to a profits tax bill now in the strengthening of: an oil windfall profits tax bill now in the House Ways and Means Committee. Continued demand for petroleum and higher crude prices the principle reasons for higher profits, analysts are the said. W i l l i a m Walker, general counsel for the Federal Energy Office, said the sharp increase in crude oil costs has given the oil companies a substantial increase in inventory profits, which are accounting changes which result from goods increasing in value while In storage. In addition, Walker said, the international firms may gain from better margins and higher prices for oil products abroad. Gulf pi! took note of "improved margins in Western Europe and higher price levels on the crude ail the company produced for itself." when asked whether Nixon was considering firing Jaworski. It is unclear ho\y the high-lev- sl unhappiness might be trans- ated into White House action. 3ut it is known that Nixon and his closest advisers have been debating ways to counter the expanding requests while providing the "comprehensive response" to the House subpoena. "We don't want to move to a point of confrontation.. But the question is, do you ever satisfy their curiosity," said one official. "It's gone from nine tapes to 19 tapes to 42 tapes, and now, even before we answer, they . . . want more." NUMBERS GAME This official, who often mirrors Nixon's views, spoke Heatedly of "the numbers game" he said was being played by investigators and intended it was an effort to 'create impeachment momentum. 11 The White House clear'v intends to deal with the House committee subpoena before :urning to Jaworski's court-sup- norted demand for tape record- ngs and other documents re- ated to 64 conversations be-- tween Nixon and four of his former top aides.
