The suspects arrested at Cane Hill were a 10-year-old girl and two 22-year-old men, all of whom list their home address as Parsons, Kan. They were taken to the Washington County jail. This raid was conducted by Sheriff Bill Long and stale .po- lice Sgl. Quimby Johnson with the assislancoc of three depu- ties and a Springdale investi- gator. The raids were based on in- formation obtained by the Fay- elteville Police Department. The search warrants were is- sued by Municipal Judge Ri- chard Wells on affidavits pre- pared by Prosecuting Attorney Mahlon Gibson. Those arrsled at the Fay- elteville home included Stephen R. Pollard, 23, who attracted stale-wide attention in April, 1969, by climbing into a tree on the University of Arkansas campus and remaining for sev- eral days to protest, among other things, the Vietnam war. Pollard was not In the home when police arrived. He was ar- rested shortly after they left by a policeman who remained to wait for his return. Pollard's 22-year-old wife, Sherri, and a 19-year-old youth were .In the home when the po- lice arrived. Although the youth was taken into custody and later released on bond, Spencer said It appears he may have only been a the home.

A spokesman for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines said ho believed it was the biggest robbery ever staged against his company. Ho said the gold bullion and dia- monds were being shipped by several clients in the London area and were on their way to Heathrow Airport'for shipment to several clients in Amster- dam. "It must have been a bril- liantly planned operation, and it worked he said. ''Our vans always take different routes. We arc very hot on secu- rity." The thing that puzzled Scot- land Yard most was how the robbers found out that the KLM truck was carrying such a valu- able load. The means and times of moving such cargo are nor- mally closely guarded secrets. Detectives were also handi- capped by inadequate descrip- tions of the bandits. The rob- bery took place in the middle of the rush hour Friday night and was over too qiiickly for the dc- tails to icgislci1 with witnesses The thiee lobbeis, wielding-a sawed-off shotgun1 aridr a revol: ver, struck the Piccadilly Highway underpass beneath Hyde Park Corner, jus! outside the back.'wall'of'Buck- ingham Palace. The robbery went off like clockwork at a time, when the road was1 packed-'with home- wanMjqund commuters. Police said they believed the bandits used two.vehicles, a car and a 'panel truck. The car swerved across the road in front of the KLM trucks blocking its exit from the underpass, and the panel truck staged a phony False Eyelashes AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) A customs man found false eyelashes sewn inlo Bing Chi Wong's overcoat on his return from a visit to Hong Kong.

Pentagon Cut Said Success WASHINGTON (AP) A leader of the long congressional fight to curb Pentagon spending says cuts by the Senate Appro- priations Committee were "a signal success" that make un- necessary further efforts to slash the defense budget this year. "The long fight over spending and priorities is beginning to pay Sen. William Prox- mire, D-Wis., said Friday, urg- ing military spending critics to back the billion money bill scheduled to reach the floor Monday or Tuesday. Pro.xmire said he and Sen. Charles McC. Malhias, R-Md., have dropped plans to Iry again to limit actual Pentagon spend- ing during the current year to billion. Such an amendment was beaten 42 to 31 during tie- bale'on the military procure- ment authorization bill last Au- gust. Senate loaders agree, in light of the Senate committee's deci- sion to cut the Pentagon budget and its addition of a ban on funds .for American ground combat troops In Cambodia, the big money bill will be quickly approved as Congress clears the way for adjournment later this month. While the actual spending lev el'.for the Pentagon won't be known until the fiscal year ends, It likely will be below the estimated by some congressional exports during last summer's debate.

An -official of the oil-regulat- ing Texas. Railroad'Commission quickly predicted, the squeeze play'w'ould not work, But.whether or not it works, oilmen and oil-producing states can hardly be pleased to see the federal government picking up tools that can serve-to manipu- late the nation's oil production and pricing. Tbe Nixon nutcracker-was un: wraped Friday'night in a ma- jor economic policy speech be- fore the National Association of Manufacturers in New York. One of its arms is a presjden-- tial order permitting 'oil impor- ters, currently unable -to tap their usual sources in the Mid- dle use now-idle import quotas for Canadian oil; some 50 or 60 cents a barrel cheaper than the Texas and Louisiana product, OIL PRODUCTION The other arm is an order to the Interior Department to start regulating oil production from its federal leaded lands in the Gulf of Mexico independently from iue Texas and Louisiana production- restraints, thus, pre- sumably, increasing .domestic production. By increasing domestic sup- ply while undercutting the domestic price with cheaper Ca- nadian crude, the administra- tion hopes to drive back a price increase of 25 cents a barrel re- cently adopted by, U.S. produc- ers, At the same time, it hopes to divert-additional Gulf Coast pe- troleum to the oil-starved East Coast and erase shortages caused by problems In the Mid- dle East. Observers said the moves probably will have little effect on Venezuela, the major expor- ter of oil to the United Slates, or on production or imports, on the West Coast.

Cesar Chav- ez, who used a boycott to union- ize table grape growers, lias b.een jailed by adjudge who says Chavez will stay behind bars un- til be calls off a nationwide let- tuce boycott: Chavez, soft-spoken Mexican-American leader of Uie AFL-CIO United Farm Workers Organizing Committee, .was de- fiant as he was led to jail Fri- day. "Boycott Antic! Boycott Chavez called to about supporters at the Monterey County courthouse as bailiffs led him to jail. Superior Court Judge Gordon Campbell told Chavez during a 314-hour hearing he would "not stand for the continued diso- bedience of this court's orders." Campbell had issued an in- junction prohibiting the boycott against Bud Antic, Inc., large- scale lettuce grower owned in part by Dow Chemical Co. The judge sentenced Chavez to two consecutive five day jail terms for violating two anli-boy- col orders and added that would stay in jail until the boycott is ended "in Califor- nia and elsewhere." UNION FINED Campbell also fined UFWOC for violating his prelimi- nary order against the boycott. The boycott of all lettuce har- vested by non-UFWOC labor was launched after Campbell had Issued a court order against picketing last Sept. 16. .Chavez had called a strike Aug.- 23 against Salinas Valley growers, who produce 70 per cent of the nation's head lettuce, after most of !hem signed farm labor contracts with the Team- sters Union. Some 75 growers Including Antic, still hold to their Tenmslcr contracts. Chavez Ills strike short- ly after the table svape growers of the Central Valley signed UKWOC contracts following five years of trying to combat his non-violent strike and nation- wide boycott. WASHINGTON. (AP) With bold attempt to roll back gaso- ine and oil-prices'and an ulli- natum on construction costs, 'resident Nixon has -launched he toughest anti-inflation drive of his administration. Not only, did Nixon announce direct government' action Fri- day night to force down the price of. crude oil; but: he issued warning t" all industry and la por. against betting inflation. Criticizing this year s big wage increases in tbe construe lion Nixon offered this ultimatum Unless industry -want government to intervene in wage negotiations on federa projects to protect the public'in lerest. the .moment ds here for labor and management to make their own reforms. In his speech to the Natioha Association of Manufacturers in New York the President took up a new economic, strategy long held in disfavor by his.economic the power, of his office directly to push down a specific price increase he con- siders inflationary." Nixon was interrupted by ap plaiise only once by the business executives.

Any wage or price decision that makes the flat and irrever sible assumption of a- high rate of inflation.ahead is'against the public interest and against the real, interest, of. the working- man." lie added: "This is also the moment, with productivity new- iy on.the rise, for, business to .ake a hard new, look at its pric- ing policies, and to pass along to .he consumer its savings in pro duction costs." Nixon said his bid to roll back the ,25-cent-per-barrel increase n oil the resulting asoline price not a nove toward government wage ,nd price controls. "On the he 'these are moves away from he kind of government controls hat cause artificial market ihorlages." Nixon overrode present state restrictions on oil production on ederal offshore leases and per- mitted oil importers' to use now-idle import quotas for cheaper Canadian oil. In the construction industry, he called for reform of the in- dustry's bargaining process, saying "consolidated or regional bargaining is needed. "When construction wage set- tlements are more than double the national average for all manufacturing, at a time when many construction workers are out of work, (hen something is basically wrong with that indus- try's bargaining he said. "As'it now, tbe craft-by- craft, city-by-city guarantees instability." Nixon said he has ordered a 'ederally sponsored commission ''to take the initiative in work- ing out these changes with lead- ers of management and labor." And it legislation is needed, ha said, it will be proposed. 'GO Get 'Em, Kill 'Em' Witness Says He Saw Galley Slay Civilians FT. BENNING, Ga. (AP) An ex-GI testifying at the court-martial of Lt.
