The President would need only 34 votes to avoid ouster from office. However, the magazine said some names on the list “may be shaky.” Newsweek said its correspondent, Samuel Shaffer, had obtained the list. The 36 senators on the White House list axe; Democrats: James Allen (Ala.), Harry Byrd, jr., (Va.), James Eastland (Miss ), J. Bennett Johnston (La.), John Mc Clellan (Ark.), Sam Nunn, (Ga.), John Stennis, (Miss.), Herman Talmadge (Ga ). Republicans: Howard Baker (Term.), Dewey Bartlett (Okla.), J. Glenn Beall (Md.), Henry BeJlmon (Okla.), Wallace Bennett (Utah), Bill Brock (Term.), Marlow Cook (Ky.), Norris Cotton (N.H.), Carl Curtis (Neb.), Bob Dole (Kan.), Pete Domenici (N.M.), Peter Dominick (Colo.), Paul Fanilin (Ariz.), Hiram Fong (Hawaii), Barry Coldwater (Ariz.), Robert Griffin (Mich.), Edward Gurney (Fla.), Clifford Hansen (Wyo.), Jesse Helms (N.C.), Roman Hruska (Neb.), James McClure (Idaho), William Roth (Del.), Hugh Scott, (Pa.), William Scott (Va.), Ted Stevens (Alaska), Robert Taft, jr., (Ohio), Strom Thurmond (S.C.), John Tower (Texas). In addition, Newsweek said the White House considers a 37th senator, George Aiken (R-Vt.) as “persuadable.” facts, the President and his advisers feel he is not guilty of an impeachable offense. Just Married, Claims She Was Being Kidnaped Cedar Rapids police are looking for a woman who passed a note to a service station attendant Sunday claiming she was being kidnapped. An attendant at Vern’s Standard station, 2601 Williams boulevard SW, reported a man and a woman filled their car with gas Sunday at the station. The woman gave the attendant a note saying she was being kidnapped. The car was registered to Janet Wheeler, 3630 Twelfth avenue SW. The manager of the apartment building in which she lived told police the woman was married Saturday, and was moving to Minneapolis. The Iowa highway patrol and Benton county officials were asked to assist in the attempt to locate the car. Police speculated the woman was either playing a joke or was disenchanted with married life. Officials Doubt Nixon Woes Affect Economy we are talking to the American people and explaining the problems to them factually as we Fu I bright Makes Last Effort on Cuba Ties WASHINGTON (AP) - Sena tor Fulbright (D-Ark.), whose 36-year senate career ends in January, is making a final effort to get the United States to ease its economic quarantine of Cuba. “The time for change has arrived,” Fulbright said in an interview in which he revealed that he is preparing legislation to relax the trade embargo against Cuba imposed by the U.S. in 1962. “It doesn’t make sense not to normalize our relations with Cuba, and I personally shall do anything I can,” Fulbright said. Fulbright, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, was defeated in a party primary earlier this year by Arkansas Gov. Dale Bumpers. Tw r o years ago he tried, and failed, to reverse the isolation policy against Cuba. He realizes he may fail again. “Take Position” But, he said, “What I can do and the committee can do is to bring it up and to make the administration take an official position and argue with it.” Secretary of State Kissinger has said repeatedly that he does not anticipate a change in U.S. policy toward Havana. His letter to Fulbright reluctantly approving a recent 10-day visit to Cuba by committee staff director Pat Holt reflects this attitude. America has long since changed. “Cuban support of revolutionary or insurgency move-ments elsewhere in Latin America has been at a minimal — one might even say trivial — level for years in other than an ideological sense,” Holt said. Massive Search For Galavanting Boy Ends Happily CLINTON, N J. (UPI)—While IOO volunteers, scuba divers, helicopters and bloodhounds searched for him for three days, John Bums, 14, was riding his bicycle 427 miles through three states and listening to news reports of his absence on a tran sister radio. The search for the youth, last seen leaving for his newspaper route a week ago. ended Sunday when police found him sleeping next to his bicycle in a vacant lot in Clinton, N. J. He was nearly 50 miles from his home in Mount Laurel, N. J., and traveling in the opposite direction. Asked by newsmen at home later why he took the trip, the youth just shrugged his shoulders. He said he slept outside and ate only at hamburger stands, and planned to keep traveling until his $40 ran out. Patrolman Jeff Rye said the youth had $15 in his pocket when he was picked up in Clinton af- WASHINGTON (AP) — Two jean people in its leaders and top administration officials said that is why we have to work Sunday they do not believe un- torr '^y hard to make sure that certainty over President Nixon’s impeachment prospects has significantly aggravated the na-1 see them.” lion’s economic outlook.

Simon said he favors aiming for a federal budget cut of $5 billion to $6 billion, which he said w f ould help bring the budget into “absolute balance” by 1976. Asked whether he thinks double-digit inflation will continue through the end of the year, Simon said “my forecast has been in the area of 7H percent,” though he said this was an imprecise estimate. Simon said he was “intrigued” by a proposal of Sen. Javits (R-N.Y.), under which a federal public works program would be triggered if unemployment pushes past 6 percent. He said that in the face of increasing unemployment, the nation “should stick to fiscal restraint . . . obviously unemployment is going to increase gradually.

The youth said he listened to Official Backs Area of Jordan For Palestinians CAIRO (AP) — Foreign Mini ster Ismail Fahmy has told the Palestine Liberation Organization the west bank of the Jordan river should not be returned to Jordan if Israel evacuates it because it “is a Palestinian land,” foreign ministry officials said Monday. They said Fahmy made the statement Sunday to Said Kamal, vice-chairman of the political bureau of the PLO, and also asked American Ambassador Hermann Eilts to convey Egypt’s position to Washington. Fahmy was to leave for Paris for a three-day official visit, then travel to Washington for talks with American officials. The ministry officials said Fahmy told Kamal that Jordan's King Hussein agreed during talks with President Sadat last month that “it is up to the Pale-stinian people to determine their own future once a disengagement of troops is accomplished on the Jordanian front.” Fahmy reportedly told Kamal: “Egypt supports the establishment of a Palestinian authority on any land evacuated by the Israelis either through peace talks in Geneva or through a military action.” The authoritative newspaper Al Ahram reported that “Egypt thought it was necessary to clarify its position to the U.S. and the Palestinians to avoid any possible misunderstanding.” Derailed Train Spews Gas, 500 Left Homeless PEOTONE, III. (UPI)—Near-iy SOO persons remained homeless Monday following the derailment of a freight train that cracked open a tanker carrying deadly ether and spewed out the poteniially lethal gas. There were no injuries in the derailment of the Illinois Central Gulf freight train near this community of 3,000 persons, but the presence of the ether made residents “very conscious of a potential disaster.” the Rev.
