Citmion Fire He said the plane was hit by cannon fire from an Israeli lighter, exploded in the air and crashed in Egyptian territory! No parachute was seen. Earlier, Israeli spokesmen re- ported Egyptian commandos slipped across the Suez Canal [or the third time in three days to raid an Israeli army position. They battled the Israelis with light arms and grenades. Israeli army spokesmen said the Arabs crossed north of Port Taufiq at the southern end of the canal under a covering artil- lery barrage late Monday night. They said one Israeli soldier was killed. A communique from Cairo said the Egyptians "occupied the Israeli position and killed all the soldiers there and destroyed two armored cars." It added that the Israelis tried to make a cpunterassault "but our forces foiled the attempt" and re- turned safely to their base car- rying two wounded. On Sunday night three Egyp- tians were killed in a raid on the same installation. The Israeli radio's Arab language service reported today shrapnel found in the three bodies was from So- viet shells, indicating the Egyp- tians were killed by covering fire from their own guns. No casualties were reported from the Saturday raid. The commando raid followed two heavy artillery battles at .the southern end of. the canal which Egypt claimed Israeli forces suffered heavy Josses. There was no confirma- tion of this from Tel Aviv. A communique from Cairo said Monday's artillery battles resulted in "the destruction oi enemy reinforcements" which the Israelis had set up in the Shalt and Port Taufiq areas. It said there was only light dam- age on the Egyptian side. 2-Year Limit Placed On State Legacy Plane Engine Crushes Auto One of the four engines of the DC-4 cargo plane that crashed into 36th Street in Miami yesterday landed on top of this aitto, which was ex- tensively burned.

The Democratic leadership made final checks Monday and seemed to be satisfied the House Rules Committee would vote the bill out on a "closed rule" basis which means a straight yes or no vote, with no amendments considered. Surtax opponents contemplate challenging the "closed but they1 have been putting their main emphasis on defeating the 2 Wilton Youths Held in Milford On Drug Charge MILFORD Antonio G.

If the effort to defeat the no amendment rule fails, oppo nents then must work to defea he measure outright. Passag' depends on solid Republica support plus a generous slice o he Democratic majority. Rep. Charles A. Vanik, D- )hio, opposes the bill and he las written to, all House Demo- crats that the measure must be tilled to force quicker action on general tax reform. The Nixon bill will pass, said Rep. John W. Byrnes, R-Wis., jut "we still will have to get 80 or 90 Democratic votes. I do not believe the Democratic leader- ship would be so ineffective as not to produce those 80 or 90 votes." Byrnes, leading GOP House tax expert, pegged Republican support at 120 to 130 thirds of the GOP House mem- bership. His Democratic figures amount to a bare majority of House Democrats. The bill has the endorsement of the Demo- cratic leadership. Byrnes voiced the basic ad- ministration argument for the proposal, saying the surtax is necessary to fight inflation. "We need to mobilize all our efforts to stop the increased cost of liv- ing. As for general lax reform, Byrnes added lhat a tax reform bill would be reported out of committee In late July. alors from Ihe National Trans- ortation Safety Board began xamining the wreckage today n an attempt to learn the cause f the accident.

Pompidou Fast Changing Style of French Presidency By HENRY TANNER Niw York TlmM PARIS President Pompi- dou, whatever his policies will be later on, has already changed the style of the French presidency. In three days he has done away with the olympian luster and the solemnity that marked the 11 years of President de Gaulle's tenure at the Elysee Palace. He has introduced a more easy-going style in keeping with the promise he made dur- ing.the campaign that he would be a president "on a human scale." During the difficult negotia- tions on the composition of the cabinet, the new president de- scended into the political arena and involved himself in horse- trading in a way his predeces sor never would have. At every stage, even when arious Gaullist factions clashed itterly, the hews seeped out: he new president unlike his redecessor was either hot ble or not inclined to impose ecrecy. Not Remote Figure Pompidou, unlike De Gaulle, s not a remote figure. Saturday evening, 24 hours fter assuming power, he re- urned for the night .to his pri- ate apartment on the He St- in the middle of the Seine. 'esterday he drove to his coun- ry house in Orvilliers, a suburb west of Paris to join his wife nd family. The photographers ollowed him and the Pompidous osed willingly and informally. President and Mrs. de Gaulle ever ventured from the presi- ential palace except to spend ccasional weekends in the se- lusion of their home in Colom- bey-Les-Deux Eglises. These rips, by auto or, more often, lelicopter and auto, were ilanned and carried out with he precision and secrecy of a military operation. Pompidou is a man who ad- mits that people can say "no' o him or, waiting. worse, keep him For two days, the process of orming a government was sus- lended because Antoine Pinay, Turnpike Merger is Real Conglomerate the drivers of the other cars as: Phyllis 40, of 32 Richmond Drive; and Inga Smith, 37, of Co- lumbus, Ohio.

Wilh De Gaulle, a man was either in or out. Authentic Coalition Pompidou's cabinet is an au- thentic coalition between. Gaul- lists and non-Gaullists. And even within the Gaullist movement a balance has been struck among right, left and center. Debate and even contentious- ness are expected to be intro- duced inlo the cabinet meetings.
