Sources here expressed doubt that President Hafez Assad's response would be favorable, and U.S. officials said for the first time that Kissinger plans to pursue his disengagement diplomacy into next week, suggesting success but only after prolonged negotiating. Syrian sources said agreement was near on a U.N. force to man the neutral zone be twccn the two armies, and it was understood the only maining problem on this point was terminology. Authoritative sources said Syria, in an apparent move to sring pressure on Israel, called for an emergency summit conference of Arab heads of state lo reassess the Middle East situation. The sources said Assad intends to ask the Arab leaders to voice their solidarity with Syria's position in the Golan conflict. · A summit conference had been scheduled for September but Arab leaders had authorized Syria to advance this date "if it deemed an earlier summit necessary." No date or sile for the conference has been set, the sources said. Before his departure from Je rusalem, Kissinger held another meeting with Premier Golda Meir and her chief aides. They supplied him with a set of maps detailing the new Jsracli offer. Jerusalem said Isael was offering to give up two positions near the end of the Syrian territory it captured in the 1967 war. But it specified that they would be part of the United Nations buffer zone to be established between Syrian and Israeli forces on the heights. The sources in Jerusalem gave this outline of the latest Jsracli proposals to separate Israeli and Syrian forces: 1. The eastern sector of Ku,- neitra, the Golan Heights capi lal half a niilc beyond the 1967 cease-fire line, would be included in the buffer zone. Syrian civilians would be allowed to re (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) . To Congress Or The Courts Nixon Refuses To Release Any More Tapes WASHINGTON (AP) -- White House lawyer James D.

Teamslers sources differed on vhother it was a purge designed lo slop Ifoffa's come- ack campaign. The Teamsters International Executive Board, in voting to erminalc the services of attorneys on retainer, in effect fired James P. Hoffa Jr. from his iJO.OOO-a-year job. In another action at Us meet- ng last week in Dallas, the board voted to abolish the women's auxiliary of DRIVE. :he union's political arm. Jose- 3hinc Hoffa headed the auxiliary at an a n n u a l salary of M8.000, a union -spokesman said in Washington. The young Hoffa, a Detroit allorney, would not comment, saying he had not been notified officially of his dismissal. Jimmy Hoffa and his wife were reported in Florida, and unavailable for comment. A Teamsters source in Detroit, where both H o f f a and his handpicked successor. Frank Kilzsimmons, rase lo union power, said there was a "get Hoffa" motive behind the c langcs. Union officials had no comment, but union sources con- f i r m e d Ihc aclions. describing it as part of Filzsimmons' efforts to "restructure the un ion." f, that are identified and uthorized by the proposed jermit."

CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS The proposed EPA permit and other federal laws require .hat Ihe cily's sewage treatment plant meet certain stringent requirements by' July 1 1977 Some of the requirements, the city feels, cannot be met by that dale in a cost effective manner. There are currently several studies underway in the Northwest Arkansas area to determine the most cost effective manner in which to treat sewage.
