Answers To Puzzle On Page 7 A U.S.-Saudis Sign Formal Agreement WASHINGTON (AP) -- The United Stales and Saudi Arabia Unlay agreed lo expand cooperation on several economic fronts and (o strengthen their military lies. At a formal signing ceremony. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said: "\Ve consider this a milestone in our relations with Saudi Arabia and with the Arab countries in general." Informed sources said the United States anticipates reaching similar accords n'iin a number of Arab countries. The pact with Saudi Arabia has the objective of assuring a steady oil flow from the world's leading exporter. Prince Fahd, ttie Satidi interior minister, said the joint statement represents "a new and glorious chapter in relations between the United States asd Saudi Arabia." fn the m a i n , the agreement provides American technical assistance for the econimic development of the oil-rich nalion through fonr joint \vorking groups. It is less specific ahoul U.S. military a i d , saying only that a joint commission will review "programs already under- way for modernizing Saudi Arabia's armed forces in Jighl of the kingdom's detense requirements, especially as they relate to training." tn his three day visit, Fahd carefully skirted an explicit catl for further Israeli withdrawals from former Arab territories. The statement 'signed by him and Kissinger refers generally to United Nations res olntions on that subject. The four working groups arc offshoots of a joint commission on economic cooperation t h a t will meet in Saudi Arabia in October. It will be headed by Secretary of Ihe Treasury William E. Simon and Mohamcd Aha K h a i l . Saudi minister of state (or finance. The first subgroup -- on industrialization -- is due to convene July 15 in Saudi Arabia lo consider plans for the use of flared gas for expanding the production of fertilizer. A manpower and education group will meet shortly afterward to consider projccls aimed at developing technical manpower skills, expanding educational institutions and bringing U.S. "technological expertise" to Ihe A r a b st/tte. [ The two other groups will concentrate on scientific research in such fields as solar energy and desalination and on agriiuElural development. "The United Slates, for its part, hopes thai this coopera- lion will be the benchmark for its evolving relations with t h e Arab world," tile statement said.

By Michael Harwood Mar} 1 Durant, (Dodd, Mead $7.95) "As society becomes increasingly urbani/ed. fewer and Fewer of us have any sense of contact will) Hit! o a i l h : Hie land is slill there, but we're not." the authors note at one point in this journal -- another on the steadily growing shelf of books deal ing with a return to the "good life." What they say is true, but only up to a point, for not everyone can decide as Michael Harwood atid his wife, Mary Duranl, did that. "It was time to ieave New York and return to civilization. It was lime lo move b a c k to the country." Whether because of job. family or lack of money, m a n y who think llie.v would like to move lo a simpler life cannot. The authors of thi.s book were able to do it. however, and they cover in Ihesc pages about a year spent living in a s m a 11 town in northwestern Connecticut. The two alternate throughout the book in lolling of what they found in thojr *ew life and a good bit of it is' mild ly interesting although a lot of this same ground lias been covered before in books dealing with similar themes. And. foi those with only moderate interest in the subject, they arc awfully heavy on bird and plant descriptions. But the couple also is quite aware that while country living has a lot. going for it, every thing isn't coming up roses. Ur ban blight, in Hie form of litter drugs and bigotry, exists U some extent in the country and they most fairly n o t e this. In large measure, this account is a balanced one. Pt EXPEDITION IN AFRICA OKAVANC.O ADVENTURE, bv Jeremy Mallinsun - (Norton. $7.05.) Jeremy Mallinson. a zoolog cat director of Gerald DurreU's Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust, decided early on that foi Ins life lo be fnlly .satisfying, "I needed to be working with animals. They cmikl be wild 01 they could be domesticated; hut in one way or another there had lo he animals at the centre of my life." I.ucky enough to know wha he wanted while still young, he also was Incky in landing a jot in Durrell's Wildlife park and then, al t h e age of 24, he wat lucky again in coming into i small legacy which allowe him lo finance an animal-col lecling expedition in Africa. This book is Ihe story of that expedition, and while Malliuson writes rallier clumsily aboul it at times, the subject matter he deals with more t h a n com pensales for this. To those in icrested in wild a n i m a l life what lUallinson has to sa about a n i m a l s and how he won) about capturing Ihem will he most interesling. Many of tile birds and beasts he tried lo get he couldn't, and Aliillinson is quite frank in tell ing of his failures as well as of liis successes.

(.Saturday H e v i e w Press. - 55.0.1) When the aparlmcnl building in which he has lived for many years is lorn down. Harry Combes, a 72-year-old widower, decides the time has come lo get oul of New York. Will) his f a i t h f u l old cat. Tonlo, in low, Hurry heads put on what event u a l l y lurns into a cross-conn try journey. All of which i« moderately in- leresling, and occasionally touching, but the big trouble with Ibis book is lliat it isn't ; enough. No enough time is devoted lo any of he characters Harry meets to fully realize them for ttic reader-. They slip past almost as quickly as if one were reading a bus schedule and ilh almost as lillle iniolional impacl. Nor is Ihe \vrilinR terribly imaginative. On one page alone, for example, the aged Indian Harry meets in jail is referred (o as "the old Indian" seven slraighl times. -- pi lion King of I h e Windy City: "Buy little, up old j u n k , fix it up then unload it with profit on the other guys." These are just a few of Ihe many fascinating characters Churchill parades before the engrossed reader. But while he spends much Lime detailing tin lives -- and occasionally loves -- of these so-called "Barefoot Millionaires" or "Suddenly Rich," who rose from nothing or nearly nothing to fantastic riches, he also carefully dclails Ihe milieu which allowed Ihem lo be what Ihey were and Ihe ways in which they functioned, or tried to function, in it. Many of these self-made multi-millionaires believed lhal Ihe more an object of arl cost Hie better it was and they filled their clalwrale Fifth Avenue palaces with huge canvases convinced "thai the larger a jainling, the more valuable it ccame." Or, like William Collins Whitney, reputedly spenl $1 million on a daughter's wedding, or, like Thomas Fortune Ryan, had a $200,000 carved ivory bedstead inlaid wilh gold. Those days may now be gone forever, bul il certainly is interesting and fun to read aboul them.
