Israel charged that the inci- dent, was a "serious violation" of tile U.S. initiated cease-fire in a complaint to United Na- tions truce supervision organi- zation in Jerusalem. Egypt denied the claim and accused Israel of "murdering" a civilian in occupied Sinai. A statement circulated by Cairo's official Middle East news agency said Israel was "attempting to absolve herself of a crime by fabricating this story and blaming the Egyp- tians for Ihe alleged violation of the cease-fire." Egypt's deputy minister of information, Munis Hafez, said, "II could be a group of smug- glers, who have increased (heir activities lately.

Merriman said he had "no idea" if the proposal would be put to a vote again. A wolf and coyote hunter, Dennis Baker, will continue in employ of the county as he has been for the past 20 years. Baker said Saturday night that his job had been voted on before he came to the county but that this was (lie first time it had come to a vote since he has been here. Baker, who will have been the county's hunler for 21 years Jan. 15, said his job was "to control predatory animals not destruction...just the control of them for ranchers."

Israeli military sources ex- pressed belief Ihe infiltrators wore a small band of highly trained reconnaissance special- ists. They said the radio trans- mitter ami other military equip- ment found near Ihe dead Egyp- tian indicated the group was sent to report recent develop- ments on the Israeli side of the waterway. No identification was found on the body. The sources added that since the Egyptians had crossed the canal and had apparently infil- trated behind Israeli forward positions it showed they were skilled commandos. Although the military spokes- man made no mention of prison- ers it can be assumed the other invaders escaped to the Egyp- tian side of the canal, the sources added. The sources would not pin- point the clash, but said it was in the Bitter Lakes region of the southern sector. Tlie Egyptians were showing increased nervousness and have made several attempts at recon- naissance recently, they said.

(AP) With only 16 shoplifting days left until Christmas it seemed time to pick up a few things for some friends. The Idea of stealing every- thing this year intrigued me, al- though as I broivsed through Belk's, Charlotte's largest de- partment store, I thought, too, about the stiff penalties for shop- lifters: one year in jail if caught with or less worth of goods and five years in jail if caught with worth of goods. I was glad I was not doing this for real and had arranged the expedition with the store's general manager to test his se- curity operation. Before I knew it, there I was, standing as if hypnotized beforo the first ilem on my toy truck in a box that would fit nicely inside one of the two bulky pockets on the outside of, my stadium-length coat, I tried to be calm, but dropped the toy twice. And when I crammed it toward my pocket, the pocket was but- ton ed. "May I help you, asked a pretty, petite young clerk coming from nowhere and scar- Ing the dickens out of me. "No, no, just doing a little looking I said, not as nonchalantly as I wished. Perspiration rolled down my forehead as the salesgirl re- treated to another counter. Sec- onds later I had the toy safely tucked away, but the bulge made me feel as though I were trying to conceal a bowling ball. AP WRITER TOM WELLS SHOWS HOW HE LIFTED IN MERCHANDISE nervous reporter looks out across store as he stuffs bra inside coat I carried the toy to my drop off spot. I did not attempt to cross the line into actual illegal- ity by going outside the store. Then I returned to the fourth floor. At the fourth-floor boys shop, I tucked a pair of slacks under the front of my coat. Back to my drop-off point. So far, no one noticed me. Then I managed to swipe a ble lighter worth and a tablecloth, a book, a toy elf, a salt shaker, a suitcase, a Christmas corsage, a box of candles, a crewel (yarn) set, a can of wood finish, a half from street floor lingerie, a brassiere from third-floor linge- rie, a girl's nightgown, a pair of boys' trousers from the base- ment and about a 10-Inch diame- ter piece of cooKtry, along with the lid. By then I was getting to know some of the salesladies. In the snack bar I met a clerk I'd seen earlier. "Oh, I see you haven't got that pretty coat on she said, and gave a store smile- "Did it get too hot for If she had only known that about an hour earlier when I saw her 1 had been wearing that heavy, wool-lined coat to con- ceal a pair of flair-bottom trousers. Final stop: the fur depart- ment- The sales lady was helpful in my selection, a natural mink cape for only I sized up the cape for wrap- ping my own coat around It. She withdrew to the rear of iho department, out of sight, lo "snip out this temporary lining we sew in to keep the cape from becoming soiled and to sew in a Belk lining." With my coat already ovor my arm I snatched a cape of the same size off the rack, wrapped my coat around It and strolled casually through five departments where I'd taken other things. That made the day's shopping spree total worth of goods, plus tax. I returned to drop-offpolnt, the office of Lcroy Robinson, vice president and general man- ager of Belk's. Robinson had said he had lit- tle idea I would be so successful in my four hours of shoplifting even though wo had agreed none of the plain-clothes or sales would be aware of my test. The store's security director was called In. About a dozen di- vision managers were called in. They stood around a long conference table I had piled with the merchandise. Belk's has since given all Us sales personnel further school- ing on shoplifting tactics, there arc concealed personnel watching for shoplifters.
