Israeli newspapers said Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin took accounts of stepped up Soviet weaponry shipments to Syria — including city-to-city SCUD missiles and advanced MIG-23s — very seriously. He had warned Wednesday that Israel would attack Arab cities if SCUD missiles were used against Israeli populated areas. The latest Arab warning of the possibility of renewed conflict in the Middle East came from the Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Sheik Ahmed Zaki Ya-mani, who told newsmen in Washington Wednesday that a new’ war could break out in six months if Israel does not return all occupied territory. Oil Prices However, if Israel yields all the land occupied during the 1967 war Saudi Arabia should be able to persuade all Arab members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to sharply reduce current oil prices, he said. “I assure vou if we can solve Nixon Fund Nowl'm Found Guilty Rorliirpft ta Returned to Prison ll wUM w wU I w i By Tom Fruehling $200,000 By Tom Fruehling MASON CITY - Telling a Cerro Gordo county deputy .sheriff “I knew I d had it” when a 10-man, two-woman jury re- rj^J turned after only two hours of deliberation, George Junior Nowlin was transferred back to the men s reformatory at Ana- . .    .    ,    «f*    i    mosa late Wednesday after but rejected an effort to cut oil..    .    .    ,    .    ..    '.    .    , IL    mn    ^ing convicted of the first de- WASHINGTON (AP) house has overwhelmingly voted I to slash former President Nixon's expense money to $200,000 even his pension as repudiation for Watergate.

The request was made in two motions to quash subpoenas issued for Nixon’s appearance at the trial by one of the defendants and by the government.
