Dayan appeared on state television Friday warning that Secretary of State Kissinger “may find a battlefield here instead of a negotiating table” when he arrives later this month in hopes of working out a troop disengagement plan. A Syrian communique broadcast by Damascus radio said Syrian and Israeli forces battled again in the Golan Heights Saturday. 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 Al 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 October war and a declaration that Arabs do not intend to lose through political maneuvers what they gained by blood in the battlefield.” the newspaper said. In Cairo, an Egyptian com-, mentator said Egypt had rejected an Israeli offer of withdrawal ; from the Sinai Desert and would move only in unison with Syria, j “Egypt will not act alone,” he said. Syria claimed seven Israeli jets were shot down in dogfights over Mt. Hermon Friday and anti-aircraft guns knocked out IO others. Israel said it downed two Syrian planes and lost two of its own, the first Israeli air losses since the October war. Tells of Kidnaping, Long Getaway Swim HALLANDALE, Fla.

Elkport Man Status Occupation Ends Charged with Wife's Death president of the City National bank of Hallandale, called the bank at 9:05 a.m. Friday and told an employe he was being held for $60,000 ransom. Bank officials delivered the ransom to a designated site but the FBI said it was never picked up. Possible Hoax An FBI spokesman in Miami said the agency was investigating a possible violation of the Hobbs Act, which covers extortion from a business operating interstate. A Hallandale police official said the case was initially treated as a kidnaping because of a primary “concern for the welfare of Mr. Dantzler. But now that he has been found our follow-up investigation begins.” The official refused to elaborate. Asked if there was a possibility of a hoax, he said: “There is always that possibility.” The official said police had had no communication with anyone except Dantzler. and that Dantzler had phoned in the ransom demand.

(AP) — Timothy Nunley, a 19-year-old sailor, is fighting for his life against cancer that navy doctors failed to diagnose despite his repeated pleas for help. “He has suffered living hell,” said his mother, Mrs. Robert Nunley, of Jacksonville. “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 Torrance, a navy public information of ficer, said “the illness which he has can be difficult to diagnose.” He said Nunley has received the best possible medical care since the diagnosis and his progress was most encouraging. Mrs. Nunley said navy doctors described the cancer as a varfietv occurring only in men, starting in infancy and not recognizable until maturity- She said a non-malignant tumor was removed from her son’s breast at 13. Another appeared on the other breast a few years later but a private doctor advised against removing it. Nunley passed a Navy induction physical last Sep tember and was sent to boot camp in Orlando, Fla. He reported on sick call while there, his mother said. “Other lumps began to appear,” 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 Chicago 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 eat,” 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 complained in a letter to the navy. On Jan. ll it ordered a thorough 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 life,” 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 all,” Nunley said Friday. “I’m going to beat it.” \
