IOWA, SATURDAY, APRIL ASSOCIATED PRESS, DPI, NEW YORK TIMES Gloves Are Off, Dayan Tells Syria By The Associated Press Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan says Israel is free to attack Syria without restraint following the first dogfights over the Golan Heights since the October Middle East war. Dayan appeared on state tele- vision Friday warning that Sec- retary of State Kissinger "may find a battlefield here instead of a negotiating table" when he ar- rives later this month in hopes of working out a troop disen- gagement plan. A Syrian communique broad- cast by Damascus radio said Syrian and Israeli forces battled again in the Golan Heights Sat- urday. It said "fighting with artillery and anti-tank missiles was ex- tended to several areas of the front" and was continuing. The Syrian government news- paper AI Thawra said the fight- ing will escalate and grow more widespread until full Israeli withdrawal from occupied Arab territory. "War Extension "What happens in the Golan today is an extension of the Oc- tober war and a declaration that Arabs do not intend to lose through political maneuvers what they gained by blood in the the newspaper said. In Cairo, an Egyptian com- mentator said Egypt had reject- ed an Israeli offer of withdrawal from the Sinai Desert and would move only in unison with Syria. "Egypt will not act he said.

He Urges Americas Cooperate ATLANTA (AP) Secretary of State Kissinger Saturday called for increased inter- American cooperation and unity, but he made no mention of the most divisive hemispheric issue Cuba. In a speech prepared for the Organization of American States, he said "we in the Unit- ed States have come to realize that a revolution has taken place in Latin America." Kis- singer was referring to peaceful transformation of the economic and social fabric of tile hemi- sphere. This recognition that the rest of America is industrialized and modern, coupled with enormous changes in the U.S., means "we convene as he said. Claiming a special rela- tionship based on historic devo- tion "to national independence, social progress and human dig- Kissinger said the hemi- sphere has a special duty to the rest of the world. "Or Not at All" For instance, he said, solu- tions to the increasing gap be- tween the industrialized world and the less developed nations must be found in the Western Hemisphere or "they may not be found at all." Kissinger cautioned the OAS delegates that they must not allow the special relationship to transformed into "an exclu- bloc. The world has al- ready seen enough of pressure jroups, exclusive spheres and discriminatory arrangements." The speech was cast in gener- al terms with few specific pro- rasals for inter-American prob- 'ems. However, Kissinger did offer some thoughts reflecting his general theme that "effective collaboration requires continu- ng and close consultation." Food Shortages He pledged close consultation jetween the U.S. and the rest of the OAS on global monetary and rade talks and in such interna- ional conferences as are called o deal with food shortages and population control as well as meetings to change the law of he sea. Kissinger said the U.S. is eady to collaborate with the OAS members to increase shar- ng information on energy onservation and create a pool f available energy supplies. In an effort to prevent a erious world food shortage, he aid, the U.S. would raise its ag- 'cultural aid programs in the emisphere from million to 128 million. He added that U.S. production estrictions are being lifted and he U.S. will give high priority increasing fertilizer produc- on and creating new methods agricultural production. Young Sailor Fights for Life 11 If Navy Doctors Had Listened- rr JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Timothy Nunley, a 19-year- old sailor, is fighting for his life against cancer that navy doctors failed to diagnose de- spite his repeated pleas for help. "He has suffered living said his mother, Mrs. Robert Nunley, of Jacksonvil- le. "And it wouldn't have been necessary if the navy doctors had listened to him when he told them he was sick." A navy spokesman said "appropriate disciplinary and corrective action has been taken." Lt. Cmdr. Harold Torrancc, a navy public information of- ficer, said "the illness which he has can be difficult to diag- nose." He said Nunley has received the best possible medical care since the diag- nosis and his progress was most encouraging. Mrs. Nunley said navy doc- tors described the cancer as a varfiety occurring only in men, starting in infancy and not recognizable until matur- ity. She said a non-malignant tumor was removed from her son's breast at 13. Another ap- peared on the other breast a few years later but a private doctor advised against remov- ing it. Nunley passed a Navy in- duction physical last Sep- tember and was sent to boot camp in Orlando, Fla. He re- ported on sick call while there, his mother said. "Other lumps began to she said. He went to other doctors at Mayport Naval Station near Jacksonville when home on leave and to doctors at Great Lakes Naval Station near Chi- cago after being assigned there. "He had lost -40 pounds, had a three-inch mass sticking out from his abdomen, his vision was blurred and he couldn't Mrs. Nunley said. "But the doctor at Great Lakes told him there was nothing wrong with him except in his head and warned: 'Don't come back here.' She said she then com- plained in a letter to the navy. On Jan. 11 it ordered a thor- ough examination for Seaman Apprentice Nunley at Great Lakes. "Doctors then told us he had terminal cancer but if they had caught it in time, he could have had a long, healthy Mrs. Nunley said. "They gave him two weeks to live." But she said treatments at Jacksonville kept him alive and X-rays show the cancer getting smaller. "I'm going to fool them Nunley said Friday. "I'm going to beat it."
