Cosmonauts Carry Out Experiments MOSCOW (AP) -- Two Soviet osmonauts began carrying out xperimenls today inside the alyut 3 space station after suc : :essfully docking their SoyU7 :apsule to the orbiting labora- ory, Tass reported. The Soviet news agency said he mission commander, Col. Pavel Popovich, and his flight engineer, Lt. Col. Yuri Artyuk- lin, took over the controls aboard Soyuz 14 of the last 325 eet to the linkup with the 18- on Salyut. The earlier part of he approach was controlled rom the ground.

"It appears that the theft was a. highly organized thing." ; Police and FBI agents refused "to speculate on who may have been responsible for the theft. But authorities said they were investigating routinely the possibility that a terrorist or radical group may have been involved. The firing pins were, miss ing from the stolen weapons, the Army said, hut police officials added that replacements could be obtained easily. A Hst of missing'items issued by military, authorities included thousands of rounds of ammunition, eighty M16 rifles, seventy M60 machine guns, eight M79 grenade launchers, one .45- caliber automatic and 15 bayonets.

(AP,) -- President Nixon's doctor says Nixon was warned that a permrtaent blood clot In his left leg might kill him during his Middle East trip but that' the President insisted on going ahead with travel plans.. "The danger is now past," Dr. Walter R. Tkach said late Thursday. Tkach for the first time disclosed Nixon has thrombophle- bitis, which he said involves the presence of a permanent blood clot in his left leg. "The clot is pretty well fixed," Tkach said, explaining it has attached itself to he wall of a vein and no longer is likely to break loose and go to his heart or lung--a. developmenl that could prove fatal. , An A r m y , major, general, Tkach said he considered hospi- alization for Nixon, at the time he President first told him of eg swelling. But. he said Nixon, who : had: kept: the ailment secret from him for several days, was insistent on going forward with his Middle East trip although "we told him what the potential hazards would be of a clot breaking off and hitting his heart or lung." Tkach said Nixon informed him of the swollen left leg after arriving in Salzburg, Austria, on June 10 en route to the Mideast. For several weeks, the While House has declined to describe Nixon's phlebitis as involving a blood clot but Tkach acknowledged the President has one. "The clot will always be there," he said, adding that the swelling results from blooc forcing its way past the area of clotting. Tkach also disclosed Nixon vas given medication for a veek during his overseas jour- n e y--something the White ·louse had denied repeatedly. He would not name the drug.' The doctor said that by the time the President left for Moscow last week, the danger of tfixon was not as great as dur- ng the Middle East trip. He de- lined to say whether he had advised against both journeys but the New York Daily News quoted him earlier as having said he had wanted the President to rest. Tkach said Nixon "felt he had an obligation" to go forward with his Mideast trip and that "We watched him daily and he did well." In both the Middle East and the Soviet Union, ambulances were olaced in presidential motorcades but were never used. House Panel ^ Leaves Way Around Rules WASHINGTON (AP) -- A House committee has produced a Watergate-inspired campaign finance bill that creates new election rules but also new ways around them.

An FBI-agent said the quan- ;ity of weapons and ammuni tion'could fully equip an Army combat company. Investigators said entry to the armory was through a side door and a vacuum drill was used to pierce the weapons vault, which an armory ser- reealled locking at 10 leant been re- weapons men would stay pace station or when would return to earth. Salyut.was launched on June 25, and the . cosmonautss were sent up from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan Wednesday night in an effort to carry out the Soviet Union's 'irst wholly successful operation involving a manned space station. The 1971 flight of Sal- yut 1 ended in disaster when its ;hree crewmen were killed on the trip back to earth. The second Salyut was sent into orbit in 1973, but no crew was put aboard,, and the station apparently broke up. FEELING FINE Tass said Popovich and Ar- tyukhin, both 44, were feeling well and had begun to carry out their program of experiments aboard the station. According to Tass, the work program includes studies of the earth's surface, the atmosphere, outer space, the effect of space flight on the cosmonauts and testing of the space station's "improved design and onboard systems and equipment." The cosmonauts also are checking on the performance of the Soyuz spacecraft, which is to link up with a U.S. Apollo spaceship in the joint Soviet- American mission in July 1975. a.m. Wednesday. An Army official said that the firing pins had moved before the were place'd in the valut. 'The pins were kept In another .vault, which appaerntly was ' not entered. Lt. Col. Anderw Wolf, public relations officers for the Military Department in Sacramento, said in a telephone interview that this is standard practice when armories are left for 'any period of time. Wolf said the Army could not afford to post round-the-clock security guards at state armories and they are usually left unattended after normal business hours. .. There were no.

Initial response from the Catholic militants of the Irish Republican Army also was unfavorable. Prime Minister Harold Wil- Police, Students Exchange Fire Thai Riot Enters Third Night BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -A woman passer-by and a young disaster relief volunteer were shot fatally just before dusk today as police and yourtg rioters exchanged gunfire for a third night in Bangkok's riot- plagued Chinatown. The shooting broke out as officers tried to clear the street at a police station that had been the focus of fighting that began late Wednesday night. Until the government claimed early today that it had contained the violence, officials said at least 14 persons had been killed and 100 wounded in battles between security forces and rampaging Chinese youths. Police said they had arrested more than 80 persons. The government broadcast that had contended the violence was put down said a state of emergency imposed Thursday "could be lifted soon." There was no government reaction to the latest gunplay, but hundreds of Iroops and police continued patrols through the upper middle-class district of Chinatown. The trouble began Thursday morning, subsided during the afternoon and then resumed Thursday night. Most shops in the Chinese quarter were closed. The streets wore virtually deserted but were littered with rubble and the wreckage of cars and trucks the mobs set ablnze. "Those kids should be killed," said one angry Chinese merchant. "They're just gangsters trying to destroy our peaceful Chinese community." Tanks that had been rushed :o the royal palace and other strategic locations were withdrawn to quiet rumors of a coup. But some 2,400 soldiers brought in from the suburbs remained on guard at government buildings, communications installations and other key spots. Incoming trains were checked for smuggled arms. The first rioting developed after police arrested the driver of a taxi parked in a no-parking zone Thursday and took him to a police station. When the driver yelled that ho was being beaten, crowds of youths rushed on the station. Police fired into the nir and then into the cjro.vd, killing sev- son's Labor government issued a White Paper Thursday proposing that the citizens of Northern Ireland elect a constitutional convention to map out a form of government acceptable to both the warring religious communities.

However, critics in and out of Congress are going alter loopholes in the House bill, some Common armored trucks to drive through. Whether the loopholes can be closed or narrowed in the weeks ahead depends on conditions of debate to be set by the House Rules Committee. The Senate bill is regarded as loophole-free. . Reformers want unlimited chances to offer, debate and »ote upon^ amendments. But. Administration Committee Chairman Wayne L. Hays, D-Ohio, is talking of seeking a rule allowing- only a few amendments, maybe just floor tests-on the controversial enforcement and public financing sections of his bill. In the House bill-drafting sessions, the members seemed to create the loopholes while aiming at what many of them regarded as campaign nuisances. FUND RAISING DINNERS For instance, Hays asked why a candidate who throws a fund-raising dinner at $25 per plate and pays'. $12.50 per plate to the hotel for the dinner should have to account publicly for the meal cost, and'count the entire $25 toward his spending limit. . Going along, the panel voted to exempt fund-raising costs from counting toward spending limits, and to exempt candidates from even reporting these costs for public scrutiny. But critics say this would allow any campaign activity.. to qualify as fund-raising. They say a half-hour network television broadcast need only carry a subtitle such as "send money" and the public will never know who paid for it, c-r how much it cost. = 1 The panel voted again and limited the fund-raising ex- nobody had Henniker-Heaton was 68 when is disappeared. His son testi- : ied that he found an empty pill bottle next to the skeleton and a note to his mother asking that she not make a fuss over funeral arrangements. · The son also testified that his father shot himself in 1D67, apparently in a fit of depression. The coroner said an autopsy found two bullets from that attempt still in the remains. Dr. Sydney Abelson testified ·that he treated Henniker-Heaton for depression and that he was hospitalized seven limes for drug overdoses betweeen 1965 and 1971. Typhoon Neors TOKYO (AP) -- Police reported today one person killed by falling rocks and 10 others injured in torrential rains as Typhoon Gilda moved close to southern Japan. NEWS BRIEfS emption to 25 'per cent of the campaign ceilings, which is up to ?5 million for the presidential campaigns. ', However, the panel did not mandate that the expenses be disclosed, and it did not rewrite its last draft to apply the limit to activities of political committees. Another loophole was created by trying to do something for folks who have coffee anfi cookies in their homes while candidates talk. Candidates should not be required to add up and report all these little expenses, Hays said, and the panel approved exemptions from limits and reporting for donations of real property, food and beverages and travel expenses. Reps. Bill Frenzel, R-Minn., and John Brademas, D-Ind., said this provision would allow unlimited donations of cars, computer services, cash-raising {banquets. Fireworks Stolen Approximately $1,000 worth of fireworks were stolen from a firework stand in the parking lot of Dillon's supermarket on Hwy. 45 east sometime Tuesday night, according to Fayetteville police reports. M r s . Nettie · Courtney, en. Throughout the day crowds milled around the station. Some youths broke into gun stores and stole weapons, including M16 rifles. P r i m e Minister Sanya Thammasak, getting tough for the first lime in the nine months since Thai students overthrew the previous military regime, declared a state of emergency and ordered 4he army and poll"? to crush the rioters. But during the 'night mobs of Chinese youths commandeered buses, set automobiles ablaze and opened fire on the police station from a Buddhist temple across the siege for four hours until a force of 300 border police in armored personnel carriers drove the crowd off,. manager of the stand, said that someone pried open a double locked door on the west end of the stand and took two cases of bottle rockets, one case of firecrackers arid emptied about half of the fireworks on the display shelves. The cash register, which contained no money, was also opened. Firecracker Injury Dennis Dahler, 17, of 1000 Township Road was treated and released from Washington Regional Medical Center for an ear injury which resulted when someone threw a firecracker into the car he was driving on Township Road near College Avenue around 1! p.m. Thursday.
