Egypt Favors Plan Israeli Cabinet Split Over Mideast Proposal By United Press International A formula for Middle East peace put forth 'by U.N. mediator Gunnar V. Jarring has split the Israeli cabinet, Israeli newspapers said Tues- day. Egypt already has replied favorably to the plan. According to: the newspapjer Maariv, a cabinet majority supports the stand-taken at last .Sunday's meeting to ignore Jarring's-proposals and demand Egypt declare its readiness to sign a peace treaty and grant recognition to Israel as a sovereign state. It said a-minority, led by Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, wants formal and public rejection of Jarring's proposal for Israeli withdrawal from the Egypitan Sinai as part of a settlement. Maariv said American public backing of Jarring meant Israel could hardly reject his initiative formally. It said the conviction was growing within the govern- ment that Israel would at least have: to discuss boundaries in the Jarring talks concurrently with the nature of a peace settlement. The cabinet scheduled a special meeting for Thursday to continue deliberations on how to to Jarring's move. Israel contends Jarring had no authority tOymake proposals of his own, a stand that brought disagreement from the United States. Political sources in Cairo said Egypt had formally handed a "positive- reply" to Jarring in answer to his plan. SMGON of .Laotian mercen- aries trained by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency has moved into position to counter a Communist buildup near Se- pone, a key.; objective of the South .Vietnamese incursion into military sources said- The Communist buildup near 27 miles west of the South.i-yietoamese border, and an-even bigger assembly on reported to the .south on' the Bolovens .prompted -Laotian officials to" anticipate attacks on .major and. air fields in- the area. In Cambodia, military spokes- men said a South Vietnamese column clearing Highway 7 between Kampong Cham and Snoul swung 'northward "Tues- day into Kratie province, opening a new front in that, offensive. Military sources in Phnom Penh said the move .may be a new attempt to locate and. destroy the elusive Communist Office .for South Vietnam the Viet Cong's high- command for South Vietnamese operations. COSVN was. the prime objective of the U.S. and South Vietnamese incursion into Cambodia last year, but .the Communist nerve- center was never: located by the Allies. U.S; military- spokesmen in Phnom Penh and Saigon said a U.S. Army UH1 Huey helicopter was shot down Monday night in Kratie province, wounding one crewman on board. The entire crew was rescued, they said. The U.S. Command in Saigon also said an Air Force F4 Phantom' crashed Tuesday in Laos, both crewmen being rescued in good condition, and three, other helicopters, were lost in Laos and South Vietaam with 12 killed. Seven Americans were killed in the crash of an Army medical evacuation helicopter Monday night- near Hue in South Vietnam, and five .were killed and one listed as missing in the crash' of a CH47 helicopter in Lads. Both .crashes were due to unknown causes, spokesmen said. An Army OH6 observation helicop- ter was shot down 123 miles southwest of Saigon, but there were no'casualties reported. The command reported .the second protective' reaction strike in two days Tuesday by an Air Force F105 Thunderchief fighter-bomber agajnst ah an- tiaircraft missile site, in North Vietnam. American pilots were'flying support of South Vietnamese troops in-Laos. Correspondent Kenneth .Brad- dick at Khe Sanh Tuesday said the Communists are putting up heavy antiaircraft fire to defense of their Ho Chi Minn supply trail into Cambodia and South Vietnam. The Laotian military spokes- man, Gen. Thongphan Khocksy, said in Vientiane that a force of 16 North Vietnamese and Pathet Lao guerrilla battalions totaling men was believed to be in the area Of Lao Ngam, 75 miles south of Sepone and 35 miles northeast of the Laotian southern.; military headquarters at Pakse..

The- petitions must contain signatures of 10 per cent of the total vote at the 1970 guber- natorial election, or about names. Schneider said l COST has set a goal of valid signatures. Muskingum. County com- missioners voted last Wed- nesday to enact the tax ef- fective May 1. Schneider said volunfeers circulate the petitions can contact him at 781. Larzelere avenue. Schneider emphasized the committee is officially taking no position as to approval or rejection of the tax once it is placed on the ballot. The aim is only to put the question to voters and. let them decide, he emphasized. "The county commissioners' have made it as" hard as possible for the citizens of the county to make decisions ;that Banks Cut Interest Charges NEW YORK busi- ness borrowers, got another break on interest charges Tuesday as major banks country cut their, .prune pterest rates for the': fourth time this year. Bankers .Trust Co. led the move by cutting its rate by a quarter point to 5% per cent. Many banks in -New York and across the country 'quickly followed suit. It was the seventh, round of cuts in the prime rate, from which other business loan rates are scaled upward, since the November elections which, among other things, registered the unpopularity of high inter- est rates and tight money. The prime rate was at a record high of Wz per cent at this time last year and was 6% per cent at the start of 1971. The downtrend reflected re- duced demand for loans from major industries, many of which were hit by the 1970 recession, the result largely of government's efforts to cool down an overheated economy with tight money policies. AFL-CIO Backs Strip Mine BUI COLUMBUS The Ohio AFL CIO Tuesday en- dorsed strong control of strip mine operations and said more attention must be given to land restoration.

It would carry :oil; 800 miles south from Prudnoe Bay to Valdez for shipment by tanker to the U.S. West Coast. Curfew Set In Turkey ANKARA, Turkey American authorities imposed a midnight -curfew .on .thousands of U.S. military personnel in Turkey Tuesday and posted armed guards at American military instaHations. The moves followed the kidnaping Monday of a young American airman by seven Turks whom official U.S. sources said were probably left- wing radicals who want Ameri- can forces withdrawn from Turkey. He was released later in the day. Airman 1st Class James Ray Finley, 26, of Fort Worth, Tex., underwent lengthy questioning Tuesday by Turkish and U. S. military police seeking details of his pre-dawn abduction. by' gunmen from an American compound about 10 miles west of Ankara. Finley was held for more than 16 hours, then given 15 lire {about by his abductors to take a taxi back to the compound. "Finley is very healthy and said a U.S. embas- sy spokesman. "And he is terribly pleased and happy." Finley told Turkish authori- ties he was treated well by .Ms captors, "They gave me bread, cheese, olives arid tea for Finley said. 'Interior Secretary Rogers C, B. Morton, hosting-a public hearing on the project's envir- onmental hazards, promised to weigh the value of Alaska's Arctic wilderness as .heavily, as the .potential irJches of: pe- itroleum development before .ruling on the issue.

Many of the Eskimo, Indian and Aleut; people of Alaska live on a level of poverty below that of any of our.-other Americans. We! cannot lock up aH the vast natural resources of the state of Alaska in every corner of the land, ignoring the cry of poverty, of human want, of human ignorance and disease which it is in our power to cure."

"The commissioners were elected to-" represent the citizens, not" dictate to them. The resolutions passed by com- missioners say that the tax is the best interest of Muskingum but no one has bothered to ask the public to decide Schneider commented.

Brisk southerly winds will drive showers and possibly even thundershowers into the region today, according to forecasters. The spring interlude should provide hope for those persons who are beginning to think they can't stand much more winter. A weak cold front is due to move through the area tonight, but only a slight drop in tem- peratures .is anticipated after the front passes. Today's high should be around 50, and temperatures are expected to reach into, the 40s Thursday. The overnight low was forecast to register in the upper 20s or lower 30s..
