Plans Petition To Senate on Cliff-Hanger CONCORD, N. H. (AP) Democrat John A. Durkin says he will personally present a pcti lion to the U. S. senate Monda. saying he should be seated as a senator from New Hampshire. Durkin's hopes of gaining tha seat suffered a further setback Friday when Republican Gov Meldrim Thomson certified Re publican Rep. Louis Wyman as winner of the Nov. 5 election. Thomson's action followed an nouneement by the state ballol law commission that Wyman had won the election by a mar- gin of two votes out of cast. It is the closest senate election on record. Durkin earlier appeared to have won the seat by 10 votes after a recount by the New Hampshire secretary of state's office. At that time, Thomson certified Durkin the winner. That certificate remains in the senate file. No action has been taken on it. Durkin is expected to argue that the senate should review the proceedings of the Republi- can-controlled ballot law com- mission. Iowa Deaths Monticcllo Mrs. Herman H. Haycn, 74.

The department, announcing :he plan Friday, said its cur- rent standards have not pro- duced enough benefits to offset :he extra cost and weight of the heavy bumpers. Under the new proposal, auto- makers would be permitted to install soft bumpers of plastic or rubber that could withstand impact of two feind a-half miles an hour without damage. The standard would be raised to 4 m.p.h. on Sept. 1, 1978, for cars weighing pounds or more and on Sept. 1, 1973, for lighter cars. Tlie proposal cannot take ef- fect until the department has re- ceived public comment.

Lucien Neclzi chair- man of I he house intelligence subcommittee, indicates t h e Central Intelligence Agency has engaged In some domestic in- telligence work. He said in an interview Fri- day night that he was briefed last year by CIA Director Wil- liam Colby on the agency's do- mestic activities. Although he refused to be spe- cific about the data he received, Nedzi said he presumes he was given the same information con- tained in the report Colby sent President Ford this week. Ford asked for the report after published charges that the ?IA, which was designed by law to deal only in foreign espio- nage, had engaged in is necessary to pro- spying against anti-war sidcnts. "Hns Been Awnrc" Nedzi said "in all probability the National Security Council has been aware" of any CIA do- mestic surveillance work. He said he based this conclusion on the fact the NSC "generally oversees those activities (of the CIA) that are not routine." A spokesman for Secretary ol State Kissinger, head of the council, said this week that Kis- singer "has never seen any sur- vey of American citizens by the CIA and he doesn'l know if any such survey exists." Nedzi [Minted out that the CIA has claimed that some domestic dis-ltcct its agents and sources of in- I formation but he said that "as far as my information goes" the surveillance did not go as far as Suing Stonehouse, Says Ex-Business Colleague LONDON (AP Two former jusiness associates of runaway British lawmaker John Stone- louse were quoted Saturday as saying he owes them money.

The car owned by a Barring- ton, 111., rental company was on the first level of the parking ramp. Police were unable to locate the driver who left the car at the hotel. An estimated 20 picketers con- gregated at the hotel between 7 and 9 p.m. Friday. No arrests were made. Police found the damaged car at p.m. after checking the hotel's parking ramp for picketers and possible damage. 'The 'Sound of Music" To Be on ABC-TV NEW YORK (AP) Sound of Music" and a number of other recent films released by 20th Century Fox will appear on ABC-TV during the 1975-1976 season.

Keith White, who quit in July as co-director of Stonehouse's ;roup of companies, told the Jaily Mail he is suing his colleague over an agree- ment to buy back worth of shares. He said Stonehouse refused to abide by the agree- ment. silent on whetlier Stonehouse could face criminal charges here, either over his business activities or his disapparing act. When he surfaced in Austra- lia, he used passports issued in names of men who died recently in the North Walhall district he represents in 'he house of com- mons. 'Both widows say he visit- ed them to inquire into their husbands' past lives. "Unfair Pressure" Peter Collaro, another former director, was quoted in the Sun newspaper as saying Stonehouse owes him from another shares deal. He said Slonehouse was "bound to go bankrupt." Stonehouse's secretary, Sheila Buckley, was quoted in the Lon- don Evening News as saying he was under "massive unfair pressure" and five business as- sociates were "in effect black- mailing him." She did not identify the five but said all worked for compa- nies with which he was connect- ed. Stonehouse has asked to be allowed to remain in Australia to start a new life and awaits a decision on whether he will be deported as an illegal im- migrant. His wife, Barbara, has joined him in Melbourne. She told the London Daily Express she thinks he needs psychiatric treatment. "This Is Nonsense" "He is still terribly she said in an interview. "In some strange way he seems to think his action was not particu- larly help continue unfettered. But this is nonsense." British authorities have been extraordinary and would Hints Soviet Reprisal for Trade MOSCOW (AP) A high- ranking official Soviet journalist indicated Saturday that the So- viet Union may retaliate against U. S. conerns for restrictions written by congress into the recently-approved trade bill. The new attack on the bill was in a major article in the newspaper Sovietskaya Rossiya by Leonid Zamyatin, head of Tass agency and a fre- quent spokesman for Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. Zamyatin said that in 1972 the U. S. and the Soviet Union "as- sumed obligations to grant the other side unconditionally the most-favored-nation (trading) status. This is natural to de- velop mutually profitable trade." "In the present situation the failure of one of the parties to honor its commitments cannot but affect the commitments as- sumed by the other party under a series of commercial and fi- nancial Zamyatin wrote. Doesn't Enlarge He did not enlarge on what appeared to be a threat of retal- iation against U. S. firms which liave signed trade accords with the Russians since President Nixon and Brezhnev signed the Won't Forbid FBI Check On Socialist Convention Bridge Attacked SAIGON (AP Viet Cong roops attacked a bridge 15 miles north of Saigon Saturday, lamaging one span and halting raffic. ST. LOUIS (AP) The Young Socialist Alliance is opening a national political con- vention with the FBI having :ourt permission to conduct sur- veillance of the meeting. Supreme Court Justice Thur- ;ood Marshall turned down a request Friday for an injunction against such surveillance on the ground that the meeting is open to everyone. There was no official indica- lion that FBI agents would at- tend the convention. But govern- ment lawyers, urging Marshall :o deny the injunction, claimed a bar to surveillance would com- Jromise the identity of FBI in- lormers because their absence would be noted. The alliance, a youth affiliate of the Socialist Workers party, lad sought supreme court re- view of a U. S. court of appeals decision in New York on Tues- lay. The court of appeals over- urned a federal judge's order >anning the surveillance. Powell Refusal After the Marshall decision, YSA attorneys submitted their bid for an injunction to Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell, but he refused to hear arguments. The Marshall decision bars as did the court of appeals and his business partners !o I trade agreement in 1972. That agreement tagged down in Congress when Sen. Jackson (D-Wash.) led a drive to deny the Soviets most-favored-nation status unless they lifted restric- tions on emigration, mainly of Jews seeking exit visas for Israel. Jackson recently dropped his opposition, saying Secretary of State Kissinger had negotiated an understanding under which the Kremlin would let about Jews emigrate annually. The bill passed with provisions tying trade advantages, to eased emigration. But Soviet officials hotly de- nied any understanding and ac- cused congress of unwarranted interference in Soviet internal affairs. The Soviet press fired off a series of attacks on the bill of which Zamyatin's is the lat- est. the original ruling the FBI from turning over names of con- vention participants to the Civil Service Commission. Marshall also said lie would hold the justice department to its promise that it "has not au- thorized any disruptive activity at the convention and has no intention of transmitting any information obtained at the con- vention to non-governmental en- tities such as schools or employ- ers. The YSA had argued that FBI spying would have a "chilling effect" on attendance because of fears by some participants about present employment secu- rity or future job prospects. "Not Lightly" The government argued that, although the alliance officially renounces violence, a minority advocates violent tactics. Marshall wrote: "It is true that governmental surveillance charged in published reports. He said that, because of loop- holes in the law which created the CIA, it is questionable whether it violated it. He added that some of the CIA's domestic activities have been improper. He declined to specify what ac- tivities he was referring to. Kissinger Request The Washington Post reported Saturday that Kissinger has urged Ford to appoint a citizens commission to investigate ac- cusations that the CIA has con- ducted illegal domestic spying. The Post said Kissinger was pushing the idea in the hope that such a forum would stem public controversy and provide a review of alleged CIA spying in a "rational, unemotional and careful manner." The Post quoted what it termed a well-placed source as saying a commission "with the right people on it" would be "less likely to be driven by the spirit of the moment than con- gressional Investigations would e." Hearings into the allegations already have been promised by Sen. John Stennis chairman of the senate armed services committee; Sen. John Sparkman incoming chairman of the senate foreign relations committee; and Ned- zi's panel. Suit Filed Rep. Michael Harrington (D- a frequent CIA critic, filed suit in federal court Friday to seek an injunction against CIA covert intervention in foreign countries and domestic surveillance. Harrington said congress had a "dismal record" of supervis- ing the CIA's secret activities. His suit named Colby, Kis- singer and Treasury Secretary Simon as defendants. Two Girls Hurt In C.R. Accident Two girls suffered head lacer- ations early Saturday when the car in which they were passen- gers and another car collided at [he intersection of Sixteenth av- enue and Sixth street SW. Both were treated at Mercy hospital and released. Elizabeth Miller, 216 Fifth street SW, and Julie Ryan, 232 Twenty-ninth avenue SW, both 17, were injured at a.m. Saturday.
