W CKDAK RAPIDS, IOWA, Tllij.KSDAY, OCTOBER :i. 11174 CITY FINAL 15 CENTS ASSOCIATED PKESS, UIJI, MOW YOHK TIiMEa By United Press International Israeli military sources Thursday reported a heightened level of alert along the Golan Heights cease-fire line following reports of new Soviet arms ship mcnls to Syria and Arab warn- ings thai another Middle East war could break oul in months. Israeli newspapers said Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin took ac counts of stepped up Soviet wca ponry shipments lo Syria including cily-to-city SCUD mis- siles and advanced MIG-23s very seriously. He had warned Wednesday that Israel would at tack Arab cities if SCUD mis siles were used against Israeli populated areas. The latest Arab warning of Ihe possibility of renewed con- flict in the Middle Easl came from the Saudi Arabian Oil Min- ister Sheik Ahmed Zaki Ya- mani. who told newsmen in Washington Wednesday thai a new war could break out in six months if Israel docs not return all occupied territory. Oil Prices However, if Israel yields all the land occupied during the war Saudi Arabia should be able lo persuade all Arab members of Ihe Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to sharply reduce cur- rent oil prices, he said.

It also said EPA research and planning management was overly complex. The subcommittee found stances of a low morale among the key field scienlific staff" and "administrative activilics which duplicate agency-wide administrative functions." The report singled out the agency's office of research and development, which it said was not organized "for planning comprehensive environmental research and conducting it." It said the office was pro- ducing documents rationalizing "existing research projects ralh- cr than documenting a compre- hensive environmental stra- tegy."

Nowlin's testimony was thai he "Ihoughl" he killed Servey, since Conner lold him he did, but thai he suffered a "black- out" and could remember little of the events of Ihe early morn- ing hours of March 10. Nowlin contended that Conner raped Miss Connolly and shot her with a shotgun. Nowlin showed no emotion as the jury came back from its de- liberations.
