Department store managers said they expected to ring up record sales in what one called a "spend and forget" buying binge. With all tram services in southern England halted Satur- day in a growing work slowdown by locomotive en- gineers, cars jammed the high- ways and city streets, burning up precious supplies of gasoline. "It is developing into queues of cars going around in circles with nowhere to an Automobile Association spokes- man said. "We are going to see some gigantic traffic jams before the day ends." The outburst of buying came in reaction to Prime Minister Edward Heath's decision to impose a three-day work week or 35 per cent electricity reduction to industry in an effort to avert a total break- down in Britain's power sup- plies. Businessmen said the public generally believes the energy- conserving measures will severely curtail production and lead to widespread shortages and possible rationing. "People are frightened about tomorrow and seem to be trying to drown their fears by buying everything in a store manager -on London's Oxford Street, a main shopping thoroughfare, said "Our sales have shot up almost 22 per cent. It's spend and forget."

The physician said he has asked the Philippine govern- ment tov let him educate two children from the primitive Tasaday tribe by the same methods he educated his who became a Storm Hits East Half Of Nation By United Press International A powerful storm rumbled over the eastern portion of the nation Saturday, triggering heavy snow warnings and travelers' advisories. Snow fall from the Great Lakes region through northern and central Illinois over por- tions of the Ohio Valley and into the central and northern Appalachians. Warnings for snowfalls of four more inches were in effect for West Virginia, western Maryland and northwestern Virginia. Winter storm or heavy snow watchers were in effect for portions of Pennsyl- vania, Maryland and Virginia and travelers' advisories were continued over Ohio, western Pennsylvania, Indiana and east- ern Tennessee. Travelers' warnings also were in effect for Kentucky and the mountains of northwestern North Carolina.

Dr. Aaron Stern won national attention for his "total immer- sion" experiments on his own daughter. He said he wants to test the theories on two children from the Tasadays, a tribe of 25 with a Stone Age culture discovered in 1971 in a southern Philippine rain forest. "Within six months, I will be able to disarm my most ardent critics. I am confident these children will soon reach the intellectual levels of their American Stern said. He said his proposed two- year experiment in his home would provide' irrefutable evidence that the theories held by Dr Arthur Jensen, an education psychologist at the University of California at Berkley, and Nobel Prize winner Dr. William Shockley are wrong. Jensen and Shockley have maintained that race deter- mine intellectual capacity and that blacks are inherently inferior to whites as a result of genetic difference. Stern's 21-year-old daughter, Edith, was exposed since early childhood to a steady diet of scholarship. At age 2, she began to read and by the time she was five, she had absorbed the 24-volume Encyclopedia Bnttanica. She became a college math instructor at the age of 15 and is now working as a scientist with IBM in Boca Raton, Fla. Stern, who recently returned from a three-month lecture tour, said the State Department had expressed interest in his proposal. "If I get no financial support, I'll pay it all he said According to Stern, the Philippine government has overcome its initial objections and is requiring him to prove that he is financially capable of providing for medical care and support for the infants. He has been asked to put up bond. against wielding their oil weapon too hard. The formal reply to Arab demands for more European cooperation and greater pres- sure for Israel's withdrawal from occupied lands was delivered to four Arab envoys Saturday afternoon. "Danish Foreign Minister K.B. Andersen, speaking for the summit, said Europe wanted "close cooperation" with the Arabs, "but this cannot be carried out if our attention is constantly disturbed by measures directed against a reference to Europe's suffering because of Arab oil cutbacks. "Your measures may have a negative effect from your point of view." Presidents, premiers and foreign ministers of the nine- nation European Common Mar- ket, meanwhile, raced to finish their talks on greater European unity. The summit meeting, side- tracked by the gate-crashing Arabs, wanted to set up Homosexuals Are Free Of Stigma WASHINGTON (UPI) In what may be a landmark decision, the trustees of..the American Psychiatric Associa- tion (APA) ruled Saturday that homosexuality will no longer be considered a "mental disor- der" in the association's of- ficial manual. The vote of the 19-member board, described by homosexu- al activists as a- "psychiatric was unanimous with two abstentions. Dr. Alfred M.

It also groped for a joint policy on the emergency crisis but found itself divided on immediate concrete commit- ments, including the recent proposal from U.SrSecretary of State Henry A. Kissinger for an American European-Japanese energy crash program. Some of the Europeans suspected France and Britain of seeking secret deals with the Arabs to secure their oil sup- plies. The positive summit reply lo the Arabs temporarily ended the drama caused by the surprise intervention of the four Arab ministers from Tunisia, Algeria, Sudan and the United Arab Emirates with demands from oil-thirsty Europe for wide-ranging economic and technological cooperation and more action against Israel. The Arabs made these demands at a dawn meeting with the foreign ministers of the Common Market nations and asked for a quick response. The summit conference in- structed Andersen as chairman of the meeting to hand the Arabs the reply offering Euro- pe's readiness to cooperate and reaffirming its recent strong resolution of Nov. 6 which called for Israeli withdrawal from occupied Arab territory But with the offer went a warning that continued use of the oil weapon might boome- rang and cause the Arabs damage in the long run The Common Market undertook to study the Arabs demands more closely in the future .'As a lurther gesture of goodwill, Danish Premier Anker Jorgensen paid a "courtesy visit" to the Arab envoys to underscore the summit's response. He went to meet them at Christiansborg Palace. Inside The Times Recorder Jage Sec.

Apablaza 'was convicted of the sale of worth of marijuana in 1968 in New Orleans and was sentenced to 50 years in prison. But before he could be taken to Angola he escaped, climbing through the roof of the crum- bling Orleans Parish Prison with 20 other inmates.

Among the major sticking points in the House bill ap- proved at a.m. Saturday were a ban on gasoline for pupil busing beyond neighborhood schools and a requirement that Nixon submit all energy saving programs for congressional approval. Neither provision ia in the Senate bill, which would empower Nixon lo act at his discretion, subject to a congressional veto within 15 days As for the truckers' work stoppage, Parkhurst said long distance truck traffic "should be almost back to normal" on Monday, with only local pockets of resistance. Parkhurst, basing his predic- tion on checks Saturday with truckers and truck stops in 10 states, said the major holdouts to ending the strike would be in Old Washington, Ohio: Denver, Colo., and in Lamar.

It had been scheduled to begin Tuesday, but a U.S. official said it will be delayed by crucial talks with Israel. In Amman, Jordan, an American official traveling with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger on his seven-nation tour of the Middle East told newsmen the opening of the peace conference would be postponed because of matters that Kissinger has to take up with Israel The official would not elabo- rate further. Kissinger, who arrived in the Jordanian capital after more than seven hours of talks with Syrian President Hafez Assad in Damascus, was to confer in Tel Aviv with Israeli leaders Sunday. In Cairo, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmi an- nounced the postponement for his government. Fahmi said the opening of the session would be delayed "in view of the contacts going on now lo prepare for the Middle East News Agency reported. Diplomatic sources in Cairo said Saturday night that the delay was caused by Israel's failure to define its stand on the international conference. The sources ascribed the delay to two factors: fact that Israel has not made it clear whether it will attend the talks, although the Israeli cabinet held'a lengthy meeting Friday. at the United Nations that produced Saturday night's Security Council resolution making Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim the con- ference's presiding officer. The superpowers abstained from voting on the resolution. In Jerusalem, a foreign ministry spokesman said late Saturday it was impossible to respond yet to the announ- cements. "As you know, we first have the cabinet meeting Sunday and there is still Kissinger's arrival after that." The cabinet meeting will be the con- tinuation of a session begun Friday, devoted to preparing the Israeli stance on the con- ference. Israeli leaders have been reluctant to go to the Geneva talks because of Syria's refusal to hand over a list of Israeli prisoners of war. U S. officials refused to state whether or not Kissinger discussed the prison- er of war issue with Assad. An American official said the Soviet Union has informed the United States that Moscow has been urging the Syrians to release the Israeli prisoners. Kissinger, who noted he was the first American cabinet, officer to visit Syria in 20 years first since the late John Foster Dulles in "It won't be another 20 years before a Secretary of State comes back here."
