They said they were ordered to murder people at random in Haifa, Israel’s chief port. The Israeli military command said the terrorists were Israeli citizens who left their village near Acre, in northern Galilee, a year ago to join the Fatah guerillas. The youths slipped across the Lebanese border before dawn Monday, the command reported, but it said three other gunmen with them abandoned the mission and escaped back into Lebanon. The teenagers ate a meal in a restaurant about a mile from the heavily guarded border, hailed a taxi, asked the fare to a nearby village and offered to overpay the driver by $2.50. The driver — an Arab — became suspicious, drove the pair to a security roadblock and winked frantically to tip off the police. Meanwhile, Arab guerilla leaders vowed Tuesday to escalate their war against Israel and warned the Jewish state’s new prime minister to retreat from the “arrogance and intransigence” of Golda Mcir.

Polling Places St. Clair Sees Colson Story Backing Nixon WASHINGTON - White Houfc lawyer James St. Clair said Tuesday he would welcome testimony by former White House counsel Charles Colson in the house judiciary committee’s impeachment inquiry. “In my view it would be highly supportive of the President,” St. Clair told newsmen as he entered the committee room for the start of another week of closed-door hearings. The committee planned a look into White House dealings with the International Telephone and Telegraph Corp. Tuesday and then will take up political contributions by the dairy indue,try late in the week. ITT, Milk Roles Colson was the author of a memo which came to light during the senate Watergate hearings and which said some White House documents on the FIT affair could “lay this case on the President’s door- I step.” Last Jan. 8. the White House issued two “white papers” acknowledging that Nixon had played a personal and previous-! ly undisclosed role in both the! ITT case and the milk decision. The papers denied he had been influenced by campaign pledges from the beneficiaries and said he acted in the national interest.

He said he since had discussed it with Nixon but would not give any details of their talk. “Welcome” in Geneva. The Palestinians consider themselves at war with! Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin told the nation’s parliament Monday that Israel would never abandon all captured Arab lands and rejected Palestinian guerilla participation at the Middle East peace conference in Geneva. For NI id-East Trip Sawhill Urges Doffing Neckties WASHINGTON (UPI)-Fed-oral Energy Chief John Sawhill Tuesday urged male office workers to doff neckties this summer and wear open-necked, short-sleeved shirts on the job. The idea is that thermostats can be set higher—conserving fuel for air-conditioning. Sawhill did not suggest specifically how women should dress at the office. He said only that they should wear “neat and comfortable clothes” to keep cool. And he recognized that among men “there will still be occasions when a coat and tie will obviously be appropriate.” State Official Is Charged As Drank Driver Cedar Rapids News— Many Linn county voters were WASHINGTON (UPI)— Pres- will meet for the first time with reported to be switching party ident Nixon will leave Monday Egyptian President Sadat. aifiluition OI switching to a fnr a fjvp.nfltjnn cunner IhrniiDh f’airn enurrM Pave a full run- Secretary of Agriculture Robert party affiliation in the primary election Tuesday.

Lounsberry, 55, was arrested about I a.m., booked at the Polk county jail and released on his own recognizance. Lounsberry was not available for comment Tuesday morning. Authorities said the arrest came after Uunsberry attended a barbecue Monday night at Jester park in Des Moines for a group of visiting French farmers. A resident of McCallsburg, Lounsberry was appointed deputy secretary of agriculture in 1%9, and elected secretary in 1972. He is running unopposed for the Republican nomination for mony. Warren indicated Colson’s testimony would not prompt Nixon to budge from his refusal to release more Watergate tape recordings. “A decision by a former White House staff member to election campaign, said he opposed the multithousand-dollar plan because “it seemed like a large outlay for a dubious result.” “Then, one day in February, I was in the White House and cn- , countered Colson just outside testify rn no way erodesIOT af- (hc Presiden,.s office ..

An unidentified man was found shot to death on a roadside on tile edge of Belfast, but officials said he apparently had been assassinated by sectarian guerillas. He was the 1,026th confirmed fatality in nearly five years of the religious war in Ulster. The Irish Political Hostage Committee said Gaughan would be buried “with full IRA military honors” and demanded an immediate inquiry into the “murder.” “Martyr’s Death” “This young man chose a martyr’s death rather than a living death,” said Roray O’Brady, president of Provisional Sinn Fein, the political Security forces in Nor them Ireland braced for new trouble Gaughan was sentenced to seven years in prison in 1971 for a London bank robbery to raise funds for the Irish republican cause.

I saw him a week ago and I knew then he would die if he was not sent back to Ireland.” The home office said Gaughan had been fed artificially since April 22 “whenever medical officers considered it safe to do so.” The IRA has promised “dev-; astating consequences” if two other strikers should die. They are the Price sisters — Dolours: and Marian — who were sentenced to life in prison for their part in a bombing campaign in London last year. Doctors at London’s Brixton prison began force feeding the sisters last December but gave up May 18. Relatives say the women now are extremely weak and an intensive care unit at I the prison has been prepared j for them. Students Blamed in 2 Killings PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — High school students seized Cambodia's education minister and a deputy Tuesday and Premier Long Boret said the two officials were killed by student gunfire as riot police moved in on the school building where they were being held hostage. Boret said there was a Communist element involved in the slayings, but he did not elaborate on this. The students seized the two men in an effort to enforce their demands for the release of five students arrested last week in a demonstration against living conditions in Cambodia. Government riot police attacked the high school with gunfire in an effort to free the two officials. Boret said in a statement late Tuesday night that the two officials were already dead when thc police began shooting. He gave no further details. Shot, Stabbed Doctors at the 701st military hospital said Education Minister Keo Sang Him had a gunshot wound in his chest and that he had been stabbed in the stomach with the broken leg of a table. At Monivong hospital, a doctor said the deputy, Thach Chea, was shot twice in the chest and that he died shortly after being admitted. Witnesses said police opened fire on the students from a wall at the school but that they did not see any of the gunfire enter the second floor classroom where the two men were being held. News reporters and photographers who were inside the school said thc two officials were in the second-floor classroom with a student who had a pistol. But they and other witnesses said they did not sin; what happened when police fired on students in the compound below. Marched to School Him and Chea were marched from the education ministry to the Lycee March 18 high school, where a peaceful anti-government rally was held. By midafternoon, however, specially trained riot police moved into the school grounds where they were met by a hail of bricks and stones hurled by slogan-chanting high school students. Police fired a volley of tear gas, but the students countered with more rocks and bricks. Gunshots were heard inside the school. Into Streets The students then moved onto the streets, where they continued to battle police. Fire trucks were brought in ani hoses turned on thc students. The streets around the school had the appearance of a battleground by late afternoon, littered with bricks, stones and the residue of tear gas. As the battle grew, thc ranks of the student demonstrators swelled to about 1,000, many of them caught up in noting and vandalism.
