VOLUME 92 NUMBER .'ill] CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER I'J'rt CITY FINAL 15 CENTS ASSOCIATED PRESS, DPI, NEW YORK TIMES Ford, Brezhnev Cancel Dinner, Talk Eight Hours VLADIVOSTOK (UPI) Can- celing a formal dinner at their summit site in frozen Siberia, President Ford and Soviet Lead- er Leonid Brezhnev spent al- most eight hours Saturday in marathon talks. It was their first meeting, am both pledged to give "an irre vcrsiblc character" to Soviet American detente. The While House issued a lex: of a toast Ford had planned to give at the dinner, calling for the nuclear super powers to "get on with the business controlling arms." But Ford and Brezhnev struck such an instant rapport and the talks were going so well that the dinner was brushed aside in favor of hard discussions. Two Breaks A presidential spokesman said Ford took two half-hour breaks during his seven hours, 45 min- utes of talks with Brezhnev at a snow-covered oceanside health spa near the secret port city of Vladivostok. During one of the breaks, Ford strolled outside the confer- ence hall with Secretary of State Kissinger in apparent pri- vate discussion of their next move. Ford and Brezhnev issued a statement saying the talks had reviewed "the general stale of relations between the USSR and the U. S." "The two leaders consider the improvement in U. S.-Soviet re- lations, which has laken place in recent years, to be a very im- po riant the statement said. "All Efforts" "Having noted thi.s successful development, they reaffirmed their mutual determination to make all necessary efforts to give it an irreversible character in the interests of peoples of both countries and of strength- ening international peace." Tass news agency said discus- sion of new limits on the nu- clear arsenals of the two nations played a major part in the talks. Ford and Brezhnev munched snacks during their talks, which started after the President re- freshed himself minute swim in a healed pool at the spa, where it was zero out- side. In the loasl which he never got around to giving, Ford iledged his personal commit- ment to the policy of detente es- ablished during two summit meetings between Brezhnev and Richard Nixon. "All Mankind "We share a responsibility not only to our own people, bu 0 all he said. "We must avoid war and thi destruction it would mean.' Le s get on with the business o: controlling arms. Let us conlrib ute through our cooperation lo he resolution of the great prob ems facing mankind." The two began talks in a jo- ial mood aboard a 13-car train r o s s i n g the bleak, snow- overed plains of Far Eastern Russia in zero wealher. They ontinued them at the Okeanriky pa 11 miles outside Vladivostok ear the Chinese border. Brezhnev signaled a new thaw 1 relations, inviting reporters ccompanying the-President to tour Vladivostok. They will be the first U.S. citizens lo enter the city home port for the customed to One-Sided U.N. Vote For PLO Statehood UNITED NATIONS (AP) The Palestine Liberation Orga> nization, whose claim lo state- hood was decisively endorsed by the United Nations, says it will continue lo struggle against Israel and "cling to our revolu- tionary rifles." The General Assembly voted 89-8 with 37 abstentions Friday night for a resolution affirming Palestinian rights to national in- dependence and sovereignty and to return to homes abandoned after Israel was created in 1948. Only Israel, the U.S., Iceland, Norway, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Chile and Nicaragua voted againsl it. A second resolution granting the PLO permanent observer status at the General Assembly and other U.N. meetings won 95-17 approval with 10 absten- tions. Market Stand The same eight countries op- posing the Palestine rights reso- lution voted against observer In Jerusalem, foreign ministry the Israeli released a statement angrily rejecting the resolutions, calling them badge of shame" for the U.N. "These resolutions demon- strate the sad truth that the forum, originally designed to be a platform for peace and broth- erhood among the nations of the world, has become a rostrum for the encouragement of terror and incitement lo it said. Restate Positions The Israeli and PLO delegates restated their no-compromise positions following the votes.

Referring to Arafat's Nov. 13 Assembly speech that he hac brought both an olive branch and a freedom fighter's gun, al- Kaddumi said the majority had recognized "new realities in the world" but the minority had tried unsuccessfully "lo seize our olive branch and our rifle. Israeli Ambassador Yosck Te- koah said his country "will treat the resolutions for what they are and deserve lo be utterly contemptible and devoid of legal and moral worth."

Snowplow Deal world has become ac- regular meetings between the leaders of the Sovi- et and American he said. "As a result, all people now have a better chance to livi in peace and security." The first "deal" between Ford and Brezhnev, made jokingly over a table laden with fruit and mineral was for Russian snowplows to solve the iwinter problems of D.C. That set {he pattern for a steady patter of jokes and clowning between the two men. But serious topics efforts lo agree on nuclear arms limita- tions, the Middle East situation and European security domi- nated the agenda. More Relaxed Concern about nuclear weap- ons even penetrated the joking. Just before the private talks started, Brezhnev looked across President Ford and Leonid Brezhnev at the Vladivostok Airport Telcplioto the conference table American guests and at his with a 3road smile spelled out "M-I-R- the name applied to maneu- verable nuclear warheads. Observers found the meeting much more relaxed and friendly than was the final Nixon-Brczh- icv summit last summer, when Brezhnev was unyielding and appeared to feel Watergate had Nixon of his eftee .ivencss as a world leader. Asked if he expected his iiaiden summit with Ford to be a success, Brezhnev replied: 'Yes, I do." He paused, then said summit diplomacy "is very mportant. I attach great signif- cance to it." Others There The two leaders were accom- janied by Kissinger, U. S. Am- lassador to Moscow Waltci Stoesell, Soviet Foreign Ministei Andrei Gromyko and Soviet Am- >assador to Washington Anatoly Jobrynin. Ford's greeting when he ar- rived in the Soviet Union after a 'our-hour flight South (orca was informal but cordial. There was no 21-gun salute jut a sign in English said: "Wel- come President Ford." One So- iel official wearing a fur hat and collar said: "It is just too :old to stand on formality." Ford arrived aboard Air 'orce One dressed in thermal underwear, a heavy coat and a ur hat.

WASHINGTON (AP) If your Thanksgiving turkey is stuffed, it may be dangerous. That warning comes from the agriculture department, which says that cooking stuff- ing inside a turkey increases the danger of salmonella poi- soning. The department issued the warning in reporting Ihc re- sulls of a survey of food safe- ty practices in Ihe home. Tho survey indicated that many homemakers would flunk tests for cooking turkey safely. Fresh meat and poultry may contain salmonella bac- teria, which cause a disease characterized by f 1 u -1 i k c symptoms surh as revere headaches, vomiting, rhea, cramps and fever. 11 can cause death in parlic- u 1 a r 1 y susceptible persuns such as infants, the elderly or those with chronic diseases. Although salmonella can be killed when (he turkey is cooked, it may be transferred from the turkey to the stuff- ing, Ihe department said. "Therefore, for absolute safety, stuffing or dressing .should be cooked in a .sepa- rate it added. However, the survey of home cooks showed that only 26 percent of the respondents who prepared stuffing lol- lowed this procedure. "If the homemaker insists on cooking .stuffing inside Ihe turkey, il is ilia! she cook (lie s I u f f i n g the department said. "In the cavity of the turkey, it lakes longer for the stuffing to be sufficiently cooked." II should reach a tempera- lure of at least during roasting, the department ad- vised. ".lust because Ihc outer sur- face of Ihe turkey appears lo he done does not necessarily indicate Ihe stuffing is safely done it added. Here too the American homemaker flunked. A major- ity of those participating in the survey, when asked how they knew Ihe stuffing was done, replied Ilial, when "Ihe turkey is done, the stuffing is IliVnlV" The risk of cooking the stuffing in the turkey is fur- ther compounded when the stuffing is packed lighlly, be- cause it dues not allow the oven heat to penetrate as quickly, the department said. However, 40 percent of the cooks participating in Ihe sur- vey who stuffed (heir turkeys packed (hem tightly, il added. "To Ihe homemakers' cred- it, only a .small proportion of them (G percent) indicated they stuffed Ihe turkey a day or more prior to the department said.

TUNIS (AP) Palestinian guerillas publicly executed a West German hostage aboard a hijacked British airliner Satur- day after Tunisian and Egyptian officials rejected their demand for release of 13 terrorists held in Cairo. Bank Manager Werner Kehl, 43, was shot in the back as he stood in the open door of the olane in full view of the airport terminal building. He dropped 12 feet to the tarmac and 10 minutes later was taken to a iiospital, where he was pro- nounced dead on arrival. The Ihree hijackers then set a deadline for the next killing among their 40 surviving hos- tages. But the deadline passed without a new execution and there were reports Egypt might give in at least partly to their demands. Plane Due A high Tunisian official said an Egyptian plane with "some Palestinian guerillas on board" was due in Tunis from Cairo around 8 p.m. 1 p.m. CST. The official declined to indicate how many were arriving or whether they were some or all of the 13 held by Egyptian auth- orities. The Tunisian news agency an- nounced earlier that the 13'men iiad already arrived in Tunis, but this was false. The an- nouncement may have been an attempt to deceive the hi- iackers. When they learned of the de- ception, they killed Kehl in the presence of a Palestine Lib- eration Organization represent- ative who boarded the plane in jn attempt to talk. Tunisian Foreign Minister .labib Chatti told an urgently- convened meeting of American workers, including some design- West European ambassa- dors that Tunisia would like them lo intervene to save the hostages, but he did not specify what kind of intervention he had in mind. Yasir Arafat, head of the PLO, was quoted by Radio Tunis as condemning the hijack- ing as an attempt to "sabotage the Palestinian cause." Dutch Stand Tunisian authorities said the Dutch government told them it was prepared lo release two other Palestinians from a Dutch prison to meet a second hi- jacker demand. The two are serving five-year terms for 'hi- jacking a British plane last spring. Arab governments joined Ara- fat in condemning the hijacking. Tunisian Foreign Minister Habib Chatli called it "clearly an attempt by Palestinian ex- tremists lo embarrass Arafat and challenge his moderate leadership." The airliner was cnroute from London to Singapore and Brunei when the gunmen, disguised as maintenance men, look it over during a stop at Dubai in the Persian gulf.
