A senior American official said the cease-fire agreement would take effect as soon as it is signed Friday. Meanwhile, about 12 Israelis, mostly settlers from the Golan Heights shouted, "No retreat, the Golan is ours" Thursday as Premier Golda Meir presented details to parliament. Mrs. Meir raised her voice and continued speaking as guards dragged the demon- strators from the hall and de- tained them for questioning. Officials, said there hadn't been anything like it in a dec- ade. In her presentation, Mrs. Meir warned that Aral, guerilla at- tacks on the Syrian front could seriously damage the accord. But she said Israel had an American commitment of sup- port for Israeli military action against Palestinian guerillas if they crossed the disengagement line. Before leaving Jerusalem, the American secretary of state told (Photos on Picture Page) newsmen the pact may become "a turning point in the history of the Middle East." Wounded Prisoners The senior official, talking to newsmen as the Kissinger parly flew here to report to Presidenl Sadat on the accord, saic wounded prisoners of war would be exchanged within 24 hours of the signing in Geneva. As part of the agreement to separate Israeli and Syrian forces in the Golan Heights, the official said, Israel would give up the Golan city of Quneilra and six or seven villages taker in the 1967 war, as well as lane gained last October. The U. S. official said Israel would retain possession of Ifiree strategic hills and all of its settlements, but will yield about "a field and a half" of cultivated land east of the disengagement line. The text of the accord distrib- uted to newsmen gives Syrian and Israeli negotiators until Wednesday lo work out details of the troop separation in the Golan Heights. Actual disengagement is lo begin by next Thursday and be completed by June 25. All of the remaining 73 Israeli and 40B Syrian, Moroccan and Iraqi prisoners are to be repatrialec by Thursday. U. N.

The British army said a band of about 300, many armed with pick handles and garden shears, attacked troops during Ihe night. Soldiers fought back with rubber bullets and anti-riot gas. There was no word of casual- ties. Seven sniper attacks, without casualties, were reported. Merlyn Rces, Britain's min- ister for Northern Ireland, met with Brian Faulkner, Protestant head of the lopplcd provincial coalition government, hoping lo "Will Be No" B u t Protestant hard-liners were firm against giving the Catholic third of Ulster's 1.5 million people any more power.

American Civil Liberties Union land relatives of dead Sym- b i o n e s e Liberation Army members Thursday demanded a public inquest into the deaths of six Si.A terrorists killed in a fiery battle with police and FBI igenls. Dr. L. S. Wolfe, of Allenlown, 'a., father of Willie Wolfe, and other relatives of Ihe dead are isking for the inquest, Ihe ACLU said Wednesday. No New Leads The FBI said it has no new eads in the continuing search 'or the three alleged SLA members still at large news- paper heiress Patricia Hearst and William and Emily Harris. "We're still running out all a spokesman said. 'There's no indication she (Miss Hearst) has left the area." The younger Wolfe, 23, died of burns and smoke inhalation May 17 as six SLA members shot at bcseiging police and FBI agents from a burning home in a black neighborhood. Coroner Thomas Noguchi, re- plying to the ACLU, said his of- fice is "conducting an in-depth study of the deaths. If at the completion of this study, an in- quest is felt to be warranted, it will be held." But, he said, suctran inquest is "not contemplated al this time." Noguchi has already made public a study ot the remains of the six terrorists. Ascertain Answers The ACLU said it "joins rela- tives in calling for a public inques't in order lo ascertain an- swers to a number of questions which have surfaced since the May 17 events." In New York, Slephen Weed, Patricia Hearst's fiance, says she should avoid giving authori- ties "the slightest excuse" to engage in a shootoul such as the one that claimed six lives at a Symbionese Liberation Army hideout in Los Angeles. Weed urged the 20-year-olc newspaper heiress to "do some- thing rational call a good lawyer" lions.

White House Press Secre- tary Ronald Zicgler said the committee's contention "is not a valid inference." Zicgler said "a vole on impeachment should not be based on an in- ference.

The committee voted 29 to a against a motion from Rep, Conycrs to report to the house immediately an arti- cle of impeachment based upon Nixon's failure to obey the sub- poenas. Conyers said that if the com- mittee did not take strong ac- tion immediately this could sei a precedent that would enable future Presidents similarly defy requests for evidence impeachment proceedings. The committee also rejected, 32 to 6, a proposal by Rep. Railsback (R-I1I.) to ssek a court test of the committee's subpoena power. Albert Jenner, the committee's minority coun- sel, opposed Railsback's propo- sal, saying it would delegate to the courts a power imposed by the Constitution en the house. "Not Within Power'' In his May 22 letter, Nixon based his refusal lo supply 11 tapes subpoenaed by the com- mittee on Ihe grounds that it would lead lo "a never endin; process" of continuing requests.

Tax Relief Bill Signed ByGov.Ray DES MOINES (AP) A bill to give lowans a million annual tax break was signec into law by Gov. Robert Raj Thursday. He also signed bills to create an Energy Policy Council, "de- sex" the Iowa code, and grant 7V-! percent average pay hikes to state merit system employes and area school employes. The tax package exempts food, prescription drugs, diabe- tic supplies and prosthetic de- vices from the 3 percent slate sales tax. Doubles Deduction It also doubles the standard deduction on the Iowa income tax from the current 5 percent with a maximum to 10 per- cent and a maximum. The inheritance lax exemp- tion for a surviving spouse is doubled from the current maxi- mum lo The measure also exempts from the inheritance tax half the property held by a couple in joint tenancy. All the lax breaks become effective July 1. "I'm signing this bill to give an honest tax break to the peo- ple of Iowa a million lax break to (he people who havi paid these Ray said at Ihe bill signing ceremony. Step Forward "I think it's a great step for- ward in balancing our lax pro- gram." The measure to "desex" the Iowa code changes the refer- ences lo men and women in Iowa laws to nonscxual words such as "persons." It also will allow cosmetologists to cut men's hair unlit July 1. 1975, and dirccls the barber and cos- metologisl licensing boards lo get together and work out a joint license arrangement. Under current state law, up- held by the Iowa supreme court, barbers can cut women's hair, bill cosmetologists can cut the hair only of women and of boys under the age of 12.

The council is lo (jo out of ex- istence after Iwo years unless Ihe legislature acts lo continue inspection. Last Friday St. Clair appealed .he judge's order to the court of appeals. Shortly afterward Jaworski asked the supreme court to take the appeal direct-, ly, skipping the appeals court. The court meets in its usual private session Friday and could iecide then whether to agree to an early ruling or leave the case where it is. An announce- ment could come Friday or the court' .Mas its next public session. St. Clair said he agreed with Jaworski that the constitutional issues in this case are exceed- ingly important. "But it is precisely because of the importance of these is- sues that (he President opposes any attempt to shortcut the usual judicial St. Clair wrote. "Prompt judicial important in this action is case but 'prompt judicial action does not mean unjudicial he said, quoting from a 1971 su- preme court decision. Plumbers' Trial St. Clair said the case was of such importance "that the court must be. assisted lo the greatest possible extent by the lower courts and by counsel and that the court must have the opportunity for careful re- flection and deliberation that wise decision requires." In a second case, U.S. Dis- trict Judge Gerhard Gesell has ordered Nixon to stale in writing by today that he understands charges in the plumbers case against former presidential as- sistants may be dismissed if sub- poenaed notes and records arc not provided. A White House spokesman said Nixon's response to Gesell will be delivered to the judge's chambers and that it will be up to Gesell to decide whether to make it public. If Nixon refuses lo turn over the evidence sought by Ihe de- fendants in the plumbers case, new ammunition would be pro- vided lo the house judiciary commillcc in its impeachment inquiry.
