VOLUME 92 NUMBER 144 ttpitU ©ivjTt+f CITY FINAL 35 CENTS CEDAR RA IM US, IOWA, SUNDAY, .JUNE 2, 1974 DEAD J ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON (AP) — United Nations Secretary General Hurt Waldheim met Saturday with President Nixon and Secretary of State Kissinger to review the Arab-Israeli situation before leaving for a trip to the Middle East. Waldheim and Kissinger spent half an hour at the White House with Nixon before adjourning to the state department for a one-hour, 45-minutc working lunch. The secretary general returned to New York to catch an evening flight to Geneva on the first leg of his trip to the Middle East. The secretary general and Kissinger told newsmen after the lunch that the Syrian-Israeli cease-fire agreement was discussed as well as the role to be played by the U. N. in maintaining the peace. Peace Conference They also discussed resumption of the Middle East peace conference in Geneva later this summer or in the early autumn. Neither would give the date of the conference, nor would they! discuss the problem? facing the participants, particularly the issue of Palestinian representation. Israel has opposed such par-' ticipation on grounds that Pales-! tinian leaders have supported anti-Israeli terrorism. U. S. of-1 ficials say Kissinger is seeking a compromise on that issue.

Davis    dismissed as “a boast” a    terrorist communi que which chimed responsibility for shooting down the five-seat    aircraft Wednesday with a missile. A high ranking police official was killed in the crash, which injured three other officers. A police spokesman said, “It’s a    little preposterous. There is no indication a missile was involved. It’s a case of someone who just flew too low and smacked into the hill ” Davis said there was no evidence of an explosion aboard the $140,(MKI. jet-powered helicopter, and said the crash apparently resulted from a failure in the rotor section which caused the ’copter to stall. “The likelihood that someone shot the helicopter down is extremely remote.” said Davis. A final determination on the cause of the crash has not yet been made. identical letters received Friday by the local CBS television news bureau and its affiliate, KNXT. asserted tin' SLA brought the craft down with an SA-7 missile, which the communique said had been code named “Ktrellu” by NATO. “We have several more of these weapons and will use them to shoot down fascist pig aircraft,” said the letters. In Washington, I). C., a Pentagon spokesman said the SA-7 is a Soviet missile about 4 feet long and is tipped with a high explosive warhead. It zeros in on the heat given off by an aircraft’s engines. The shoulder-fired weapon was used by the North Vietnamese in Southeast Asian fighting to bring down helicopters It was also employed during last October’s Arab-Israeli war. There have been persistent reports that Arab terrorists have smuggled the missiles, which are small enough to be broken down and carried in a large suitcase, into Europe for use against commercial airliners. However, there have been no such incidents. The FBI said agents were examining the letters, which bore the Sl*A’s seven-headed cobra insignia and were signed “B Team Leader,” but refused comment on their authenticity. Davis said that if such a missile had struck the helicopter, it would have totally destroyed it, which was not the case. The Bell jet helicopter struck a ridge in Kagel canyon northeast of here, plunged to the canyon floor and burst int a flames. Police Cmdr. Paul Gillen was killed in Wednesday’s crash. According to the communique, the copter was shot down in “retribution for the 17 May elimination of six of our beloved comrades by members of the Los Angeles police de-partment SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams.” The FBI, meanwhile, said they had no new leads in the search for SIA members Patricia Hearst and William and Emily Harris but were operating under the theory that the trio was still in southern California. “The number of reported sightings has diminished from last week, but we have no indication that they have left the arca.” said John Morrison, an FBI spokesman SECTION A Lait Nt*i Report Card Deaths City Hall Notes Editorials SECTION B lost a News Frank Nye s Politics!
