A Coneouh County sheriff's Saudi Arabia defiant By United Press International Saudi Arabia apparently has decided to defy Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's warning that the United States would consider- taking unspecified "counter- measures" unless the Arab states ended their oil boycott. Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Sheik AhmeoV Zaki Yamaui said Thursday he would reduce oil production up to 80 per cent if the United States, Europe and Japan lake any cou n termeasures. Kuwait also issued a state- ment Thursday indicating the boycott of oil shipments to pro-Israel nations will con- tinue. In other energy develop- ments Thursday, Italy raised gasoline prices to a record a gallon, banned Sunday driving and took other fuel-conserving measures, Canada assured the United States it has no intention of stopping shipments of oil, and in Washington several con- sumer and environmental groups urged the government to accelerate antitrust action against major oil com- panies, discourage the licen- sing of nuclear power plants and promote more underground, rather than sur- face, mining. Y a m a n i spoke i n Copenhagen in apparent response to Kissinger's statement Wednesday "that if pressures continue unreasonably and indefinitely, then the United States would have to consider what coun- lermeasures it would have to lake." The Saudi Arabian oil minister, speaking on a Danish television interview warned Europe and Japan against joining Americans in any counter m e a s u r e s "because your economy would collapse in a short time." He said if the United States tried to use military force to occupy oil producing arras, Saudi Arabia wotUd blow up its oil fields. The Foreign Ministry of Kuwait asked Thursday for "clarification" of Kissinger's statement, Kuwait radio reported. office spokesman said authorities had not conducted a search for the missing air- plane and the unidentified hunter "just walked up on it." The crash site is almost in the opposite direction from the way he would have flown to Tampa and authorities were trying to determine how Royer apparently became lost. One source said Mr. Royor did not have a license to operate the plane, but ho had permission of the unidentified owner to operate at the white, yellow and blue Piper Cub. A spokesman at the U.S. Flight Service in Mobile, Ala., said today it was not known why Mr, Royer was 75 miles in the wrong direction. He in plane crash said there had never been any contact with the plane. He said it was not required to file a flight plan for such a short flight and Mr. Royer had not filed one. If he had, the official said, the search for the plane would have as soon as he failed to reach his destination. Mr. Royer and his family had lived in Hyatlsville, Md. until this past June when they moved to Tampa, Fla. where he was associated with the Temple Christian He was flying home to join his family for Thanksgiving from Pensacola, Fla and was alone in the small plane.

U.S. District Court Judge John J. Sirica Wednesday asked the President volun- tarily to- give him all stfb- poenaed tapes for safe-keeping by the court. The judge acted after the White House announced that an 18-minute segment of one tape contained only an "audible tone" and no conversation. Sirica gave Nixon until Monday to respond, saying that if he won't give up the tapes voluntarily, the judge will order Prosecutor Leon Jaworski to formally request their immediate turnover. The White House so far has said only that Sirica's request was "under Announcement that the 18- minute tape section contained only a hum came while presidential lawyers were negotiating with Judge Sirica for a gradual turnover of seven subpoenaed tapes. The new development prompted Sirica to say that, while he didn't mistrust the White House, he would "feel better" if the courts had the tapes right away. The 18- minute segment was part' of a conversation Nixon held with H. R. Haldeman, his staff chief at the time, on June 20, 1972, three days after the break-in at Democratic headquarters in the Watergate apartments. The White House said the hum was not discovered until last week because of ambiguity as to whether the tape involved was included in the subpoena. Mcanwiniu, a nationwide poll indicates that more Americans President Nixon should remain in office Ihan resign, but the gap between Ihe two opinions continues to narrow. Pollster Ixiuis Harris report- ed Thursday that the call for Nixon's resignation in view of Ihe Watergate affair rose to per cent in a sampling of adults taken between Nov. 12 and Nov. 15. The 43 per cent favoring resignation contrasted with 36 per cent in October, 31 per cent in September, 28 per cent in August and 14 per cent last May, Harris said. T li e N o v e m b e r survey showed 47 per cent opposed resignation, compared with 50 per cent in October, 56 per cent in September, 63 per rent in August and 75 per cent in May. Ten per cent In the latest sampling were undodded. Asked their feelings concer- ning resignation should it be proven that Nixon was aware of Watergate cover-up efforts in the White House, Harris said 59 per cent his departure and XI per did not.
