In a prtJlest caravan through the narrow streets here Saturday, members: of the'United'Mine Workers' largest and most politically volatile district honked'automobile horns and hooted disapproval of the proposed strike settlement they are being asked to ratify. The well-organized demon- stration, a motorcade that went on to other coal-mining communities near here through the bleak, drizzly.aft- ernoon, indicated that in West Virginia, at leader- ship1 of Arnold.

If the vote, to be'tallied at the union headquarters in Washington, shows that the settlement has been the strike, now 19 days old. could be over by the of, next week. Some union locals, particularly in Pennsylvania, apparently wilj mil vote until Tuesday because the deer sea- son opens Monday and many miners want to go'hunting. Snickers, Whistles .Miller came, here to- tell several hundred miners, "In my opinion, this is the best contract ever negotiated by any labor union in the country."

An Israeli command spokes-. man said one. of the guerillas' was wounded in an exchange- of gunfire when troops stormed, the house in Riha- niya, a small village nestled in the .hills three.hiiles south of the Lebanese border. Both gunmen had infiltrated across the Lebanese frontier, the military claimed Riha- niya is-populated by Moslem Circassians, who are Israeli citizens and, unlike Israeli ArabSj serve in the army. It was not certain if the guerillas picked the non-Jew- ish town or just jtt'acked the first village they came across. Killed Immediately The terrorists sneaked into the village late Saturday night, took over the brick house and held it for an hour sources said. The spokesman said. "The terrorists killed a man and wounded a woman before thei Israeli defense force moved in. One of the captured terror- ists Was wounded and the other was unhurt. We arc in- terrogating them." Residents of Rlhaniya said the guerillas took over the home of Saubhi Mussa Abzak, 37, a father of three, killed him, immediately and wound- ed his wife, Samia, in the leg. It was the first attack by Arab guerillas .against a non- Jewish target in Israel.
