In calling the election, Wilson is gambling with his political life. Opinion polls arc in- conclusive, with some showing a narrow lead for his party.

In 1970, Wilson called an elec- tion when enjoying a comfort- able lead in the polls, only to be upset by Heath's Conservatives four weeks later.

Indecisive Vole The February vote decisive, giving Nixon Tapes Pact Tested By Jaworski WASHINGTON (AP) Spe- cial prosecutor Leon Jaworski is about to test the limits of an agreement for delivery of White House lapcs and documents to Richard Nixon by seeking some of them for Watergate prosecu- tions.

The request is to bo delivered lo President Ford's counsel. Philip Buchen when the list is completed. The request marks the first lime since the tapes agreement with Nixon was announced Sept. 8 that Jaworski has sought some of the materials scheduled (o be sent to a vault near Nixon's San G'lemente estate.

In Damascus, a spokesman said that a rarnp requested by the gunmen was put at the aircraft's front exit, apparently touching off a premature sur- render report. But the doors remained shut and the ramp was removed again five minutes later at the terrorists request, the spokes- man said. Batteries Recharged The spokesman said negotia- tions continued with a Syrian general and the terrorists while the planes batteries were being recharged. Dutch Justice Minister Dries van Agt said one of the terror- ists was wounded in a gun bat- tle with police Friday, and it was believed he was rapidly getting worse. Van Agt said that was probably why the trio agreed lo accept in- stead of the SI million they demanded. The three Red Army men who invaded the French embassy in the Dutch capital Friday took Senard, eight other men and two young women employes hostage. They demanded the release of Red Army in France seven weeks before, and a Boe- ing 707 jet lo lake the four of them lo a destination of their choice. Added Demand Furuya was brought lo Schi- phol airport and Ihc plane was promised, but the terrorists on Sunday added Ihc money de- mand, saying it would be "com- pensation" for Furuya's time in jail.
