Dead and wound- ed women and children were found in the stairwell and on the lawn surrounding the building. A woman whose home was in- vaded by the guerillas told a Tel Aviv newspaper: "About a tall man wear- ing army clothes entered our house and started shooting with- out saying a word. I was threw myself out of a window and neighbors took me to a first aid station." The woman, who was not identified, was only slightly wounded. She said her husband and chil- dren were in the house sleeping when the man entered. She did not know their fate. There also was renewed fight- ng between Syrian and Israeli roops on the Golan heights Thursday the 31st consecu-. ,ive day of a war of attrition.

Reasons for the slated inten tion of dismissing the applica tion are two-fold, he said. First, the only ground in the application that has factual sub stance is that Zacek did no k n o xv i n g 1 y and plead guilty because of illega evidence-gathering activities o the police department. Already Determined The question of a knowing am voluntary guilty plea has al ready been determined by the Iowa supreme court, the judge said, and a post-conviction pro ceeding is not available to reli tigate issues previously ac judicated. Secondly, the judge said, Za cek's grounds for relief appea insufficient even assuming ther was no prior adjudication.

Zacek is serving a 75-year term in the penitentiary at For Madison after being founc guilty by a judge of second degree murder.

Another top White House of- icial, Alexander Haig, assert- ed: "We're going to turn over to the judiciary committee, on their return from Easter recess a full picture of President's actions in the Watergate situa- tion, and I for one am convinced that that will be more than enough to bring the (impeach- ment) hearing to a rapid con- clusion." Haig spoke before the Repub- lican women's forum on Capitol Hill. Times Says Jury Probe of Nixon Taxes Requested WASHINGTON (AP) A spokesman for the Internal Rev- enue Service has declined to comment on a report that the IRS had requested a grand jury investigation of possible crimi- nal conspiracy in the prepara- tion of President Nixon's tax re- turns. The New York Times, citing "well-placed reported Thursday that IRS Commis- sioner Donald Alexander had asked Watergate special prose- cutor Leon Jaworski to start the probe, to focus on Nixon's claim of a deduction for don- ating his prepresidential papers to the National Archives. Atty. Gen. Saxbe said Thurs- day he was unaware of the reported request. There was no immediate com- ment on the story from Ja- worski's office. The Times said its sources reported that Alexander had discussed the taxes question with Jaworski last week and had provided the prosecutor a list of Nixon associates and former aides to be inves- tigated in connection with the matter. Both the IRS and a joint con- gressional panel have ruled that the gift deduction was improper )ecause. of a back-dated deed that was actually signed after :he law permitting such deduc- :ions had expired.
