PAGES-TEN CENTS Big Steeple Airlift Still On Sckedule The Great Helicopter Steeple Lift is still on, barring problems with the weather. Washington County officials said today plans to airlift a new steeple to the Courthouse tower early Sunday morning are still on schedule after this morn- Ing's arrival of an Army crane-helicopter from Ft. Sill, Okla,, at the Springdale Airport. The Army team, under command of Maj.

New Orleans Awaiting Full Force Of Hurricane Guerrillas Declare 'War' On Peronists BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- The left-wing Monto- nero guerrillas have declared open war on the government of President Isabel Peron, promising arson, assassinations, sabotage and bombings. Mario Firmenich, the 26-year- old leader of the guerrillas, told a clandestine news conference Friday that the terrorist campaign had already begun with the murder of two policemen, the blowing up of a French owned auto salesroom, the kid- naping of a steel-mill executive and a raid on a police station. As Firmenich spoke, the Montonero "War communique No.l" was also read to newsmen in other Argentine cities. The statement was also signed by the main Peronist youth organization and its adjuncts. The leftists accused Mrs. Peron, widow of former President Juan D. Peron. of right- wing sympathies and of "harboring imperialism and the oligarchy." WAR PLEDGED The guerrillas -- the armed vanguard of the Icfist Peronist Youth Movement, which claimi 250,000 members -- pledged a "popular war" until the government ends "all forms of rcpres sion." They called upon Mrs. Peron to free political prisoners; restore freedom of expression; lift bans on reforms, on mass demonstrations and on the na tional labor movement; am abolish Pcron's "social pact' system of wage and price con trols. At Buenos Aires University, i student assembly chanted Mon tonero slogan's as the announce ment was read. Striking auto newspaper and steel-mill work ers sat in at the session. And in Mendoa, 660 miles west o here, a Montonero leader de clared "our policy is now bul lets and bombs." Charge Denied Denny Allen Patrick of Fay elleville pleaded not guilty Fri day in Washington C i r c u i t Court to a charge of grand lar ccny. The charge stemmed from an Aug. 22, 1974 incident in whicl Patrick allegedly stole wire valued at more than $35 from Farm Service Coop of Fayette ville. Trial for Patrick, release' from jail on a $2,500 bond, ha not as of yet been scheduled. The guerrillas had actively articipated in the drive thai rought Peron back to power ast year after an 18-year exile. \fer Peron's return, the Mon- onero leaders proclaimed their bandonment of violence and leir return to legitimate politi- al activity. But friction rapidly developed etween vings of the the left. and right Rival Cypriof Heads Agree To Exchange Turkish and Greek Cypriot leaders have agreed to exchange military and civilian risoners and lists of thousands of refuges in the first Cyprus accord signed since the Geneva talks broke down last month.

If cleared by the House Rules committee, the bill to revamp lie financially troubled system and to laj) federal revenue at an anual $285-million level through the year 200 could reach the House next week.

PARIS (AP) - The French jonneclion, 'which for 'a time seemed to vanish from-the list of plagucs-6n-America, may be reassembling for another crack at the U.S. heroin market. Turkey's lifting of its three- year-old ban on the production of opium poppies, the raw ma- :erial traditionally transformed in the south of France into heroin, has created signs that some of the fine old hands of narcotics chemistry are trying .0 revitalize their trade.

"We. have every in dicalion that the bad guys are betting exactly the same way." Knight said the drug producers appear to have little interest in returning to their labs in the suburbs of Marseille, but arc searching elsewhere. "There are signs thai some of the people have already op ted for Corsica as a new base of ODcralions," Knight said "We know the drug people considered working from Spain, elgium or Germany, and that lese points have apparently een rejected.
