Â· Northwest Arkansas TIMES, TUGS., Aug. 27, 1974 FAVETTEVILLE. ARKANSAS Nixon Makes 'Sad' ' '\^~ Call To Kuykendall MEMPHIS. Tenn. (AP) Rep. Dan Kuykendall said he had a "sad" telephone call from Uichard M. Nixon in which the former chief executive was concerned ahout the nation's possible desire to "pick the carcass." "He asked me one pointed question. 'Do you think the people arc going to want to pick the carcass?'" Kuykendall, said. a Tennessee Republican, The congressman said he told Nixon during Monday's call that he could not detect indications that there was a punitive mood in the nation toward Nixon. "I told him, 'Let me speak 'from the point of view of Con. egress. My friends -- even on the liberal side of the Demo- Â· cratic party -- don't seem to want any part of this revenge thing.'" Knyknndall said. Kuykendall had been a strong Nixon supporter through the Watergate scandal and was among the few friends and officials who met with the former president on the evening of Aug. 8 just before Nixon went on national television to announce he would resign the next day. Kuykendall said at that time -that Nixon had "cried like a baby" before leaving the room to make the resignation announcement. Kuykendall said he believes Nixon, who has been maintaining public silence since the resignation, also called some other friends on Monday. But Kuykendall said the former president did not mention any names. "He sounded strong, but sad, of course," Kuykendall said. Kuykendall, who is spending a week at his family ranch in Cherokee, Tex., said N i x o n reached him there after first trying his Washington office. "My reaction to the call is one of wonder, in a way," Kuykendall said. "I just wanted to call and tell you I appreciate men like Dan Kuykendall who stood up when the going was tough," Kuykendall quoted Nixon as saying as . a way of opening the five-minute call from San Clemente, Calif. Kuykendall said he asked Nixon in a very personal manner how the former president ' was getting along. "He said, 'We've got problems with that fellow ... uh "Jaworski? I said. He said, 'Yes'," Kuykendall said. Kuykendall said Nixon added, "We're going to be all right. If there's any help you fellows need from me, just let me know." Kuykendall said ho told Nixon that he believes that at a future time "you will be able to be a lot of help to the country with your knowledge and expertise." "I thank you for that," Kuykendall quoted the former president as saying.

U.S. intelligence sources report. The Israelis also have put in various barriers, but they appear loss elaborate than the Egyptian works, the sources said. Reports discussing defensive works on both sides in the disputed Sinai came through U.S. intelligence as tensions rose in the Middle pas,t, .sparked in parl by an Israeli tnpbili/ation drill. ' 'Â·Â·Â·''. ' ". Â· ' ! Also contributing to the tension was an incident last week in which an Egyptian SAT ti-aircrart missile was fired at an Israeli F4 phantom jet, U.S sources said. The Israeli plane evidently was checking on Egyptian army maneuvers. It it.':' according "to rc- i - * . , . . k The'* Egyptian army was'' said o have constructed more than 10 fortified strong points along .wo norlli-soutli lines. In- :clligence sources said each is made up of a bunker and supporting trenches and is big enough to hold a company or infantry. There was no indication how many of the positions are occupied by troops. So far, U.S. sources said, the Egyptians have not , linked the strong S p9ints, jl j\yhich. ar,e ;ppsi,- tiorte.d,," to'nn'co'xr' j'mojjL , likely lanes of. attack. Some'sil on low hills, giving them wide observation and fields of fire across the desert. Before the surprise Arab attack last October, the Israelis manned a system ot entrenchments and bunkers that ran along the cast bank of the Suez Canal. This system, called the 3ar Lev line, was intended as a 'tripwire" to alert the main Is- ripwi raeli forces rather than to hold out as a major defense in itself. Egyptian assault troops quickly overran it. Now, on the other side of the United Nations buffer zone from the Egyptian army, the Israelis reportedly have planted mine fields and dug a series of anti-tank ditches bounded w i t h rolls of barbed wire.

RUMMAGE SALE CONTINUES LINCOLN LUMBER CO On The Square in Lincoln, Ark. Mon.-Fri. 7:30-5, Sat. 'Til 12 Â· NORTHWEST Mills Vows To Fight Increase In Gas Tax LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., vowed Monday to fight a proposal to -Increase t h e federal gasoline tax by 10 cents a gallon, a n d said he did not think President Ford had even seen the proposal. Mills told the Southern Farmers Cooperative meeting that he thought the proposal came from within the Treasury Department. "I don't think the President has even had it before him," said Mills. "The Secretary of the Treasury has not even recommended it. It is being tried as a trial balloon, I think, by people within the office of the Treasury, below the secretary. "I'll guarantee you one thing, as long as I am chairman of the committee, it'll never sec the light of day," Mills said. "It'll never get out of the corn mitlee." Mills also discussed various tax reform proposals being considered by his committee. One would exclude taxation of profits on the sale of a house when the sale price was Â§35,000 or less. The prevision previously applied only to taxpayers over 65 years of age. "Since in the present housing market, a large portion of the gain represents inflation rather than profit, the committee felt that the present law was imposing an undue burden on the middle-income taxpayers and it is felt that this provision will provide more equitable treatment." The committee's suggestions also coyer what Mills called a "new simplification deduction." Mills said this new method would simplify tax deductions for those taxpayers who itemize their deductions. He said for simplification purposes, the committee had modified the deduction for casualty l o s s e s , eliminated some gasoline tax deductions. modified some medical deductions and put a floor on "miscellaneous deductions."
