He spoke to- newsmen during a flight from Damascus to. the Gianaclis airbase outside Alex- andria, where. Kissinger's presi- dential jet arrived late Saturday morning.. "Restraint" Hope The official said he would not be surprised if Syrian and Israe- li troops would exercise "re- straint" in the Golan Heights fighting even without a. cease- fire agreement, and he said he believed there was an under- standing an exchange of war prisoners would be included in an eventual disengagement agreement. Kissinger and his party by helicopter from the Gianaclis base to the maamoura govern- ment rest house where: Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was staying on Alexandria's eastern outskirts.

In an airport statement in Damascus, Kissinger said his meetings with Syrian leaders were "constructive" and he would return to Damascus early next week. Syrian Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister Abdel Halim Khaddam, who saw Kissinger off at the airport, said, "We are always happy to see you here." Kissinger was to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir Saturday night prior to an Israeli cabinet session Sunday. Syrian and Israeli forces fought all night on Mt.

Rather than work themselves into a frenzied fatigue, senator: took off for home at a.m and house members followed about a half-hour later, after House Democratic Leader Dale Cochran (D-Eagle Grove) berat- ed the Republican majority leadership. Cochran pointed out a Satur- day session would keep Demo- crats hi the legislature from at- tending the party's district con- ventions, where its 1974 state platform will be formulated in part. Wanted Recess He wanted to recess until 8 a.m. Monday but did not get his wish. House members, generally, were a little upset with the senate, too, for not agreeing to take-time off Saturday so its members could attend the fu- neral of the late Rep. H.: G. Miller (D-Rockwell City) at nearby Indianola. The house planned to recess a short time .Saturday morning for the funeral, but the senate is sending only its- official delega- tion of three., A stumbling.blocktd'final ad- jourment in. this lllth day of the session was iri: terest ceilings on accounts and various kinds of consumer loans. Higher Rates The senate passed, the'bill first with higher rates, in two cases, that the house lowered. Thejiouse also made other sub- stantive changes and sent the bill back to the senate, where.it languished all day Friday. Republican leaders hoped to reach, an agreement among their members before taking up the house amendments but Fri- day's efforts-to do so were futile. If the bill is not passed, rates on revolving charge accounts will remain at nine percent, where they have been since the Iowa supreme court ruled the previous 18 percent rate usurous. Once an understanding reached on the interest rale bill, the session's end is in sight. most regular appropriations ap- proved last year, a normal fund- ing year. Next Year By early Friday, the legisla- ture had approved for the remainder of the fiscal iess than Ray recommended. But legislators approved an additional for next fiscal year over Ray's recommendation. A measure appropriating million for development of a state coal mine was approved 64-32 Friday by the house and sent to the senate for action on a minor amendment. Supporters of the bill, aimed at finding ways to mine and burn Iowa coal without damag- ing the environment, say the use of coal must be increased because of the shortage of pe- troleum fuels. Sulphur Content However, most Iowa coal has such a high sulphur content it cannot be used without violating federal and state air. quality standards. A bill to create an Iowa en- ergy council, as suggested' by !ov. Ray to cope with emer- gency fuel problems and the like, has been- passed 79-14 by the house. The house extensively amend ed the senate version of the bill, placing the council under the of- fice of civil defense, whereas the ..senate .made it a separate Shortly after-the.house passed the- bill, however, the- senate with little .discussion rejected the house amendments on a voice vote.

He said his government would not be pressured by guerilla demands. Police said the unsigned let- ter, mailed from was received by James White, a leading art expert in Dublin.

The letter said the other 14 paintings would bc returned in exchange for million. Beit declined comment on the de- mand but has said he will "not pay a penny" for the return of his art treasures or make any kind of deal with the robbers. Albert Price, a lifelong oppo- nent of British rule in Northern Ireland and father of the impri- soned sisters, said he thought the robbers were common crim- inals seeking to "cover up by In- volving my daughters." Free Food Forfeited SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) The elusive Symbionese Libera- tion Army, which kidnaped Pa- tricia Hearst exactly threes months ago, forfeited ?4 million in free food for the needy Satur- day because it failed to free her. A Friday midnight deadline set the Hearst Corp., for her release passed without a- word from the terrorist group of Miss Hearst. The money, which had seen put in escrow April 2 to continue the people in need pro- gram, reverted back to the cor- loration. The Hearst family retired early Friday night at their Hills- )orough mansion. Surveillance Sites FBI agents from across the nation were flown into the San Francisco bay area as the dead- ine approached. They set up special surveillance sites in an- ticipation, of..a dramatic devel- opment in the case which began Feb. 4 with Miss Hearst's ab- duction. The only major development this week occurred Friday when police found an 14 blocks from FBI head- quarters, and ;pn the same street the kidnapers had ap- parently holed up for five weeks. Neighbors said the 'group apparently abandoned the hide- put.only a week ago. .The Jn'deout was discovered after -a resident apartment in the building.com- p.I a i n e d about 'cockroaches. Authorities found the apartment n filthy condition with reyolu- ionary slogans scrawled-on. the walls. One slogan was signed- the name Miss Hearst said she had assumed when she became an SLA "soldier." Grocer Story .Charles Baten, FBI agent in charge of the San Francisco of- fice, said, "We have reason to believe she was in the apart- ment." He declined to elaborate on the statement but added that there was no way of determin- ing whether she was held under force. The about operator of a grocery three blocks from the apartment said a young woman resembling Miss Hearst entered her store several times to buy milk, bread and frozen food. "I asked-her was she Patty the grocer said. She said the young woman smiled and said many persons had asked her that. Cat Survives 16-Story Fall HONOLULU (AP) A 6- month-old cat named Misto fell 16 stories recently and only broke a record. Misto fell from the 19th-story jalcony of mcnt to a his owner's apart- third-floor balcony April 19. He landed in a small ree.
