Fond Du Lac Reporter (Newspaper) - September 6, 1972, Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin Halt World WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Nixon, after bolstering se- curity against terrorist attacks on Israeli citizens, ordered Sec- retary of State William P. Ro- gers today to consult other gov- ernments "on an urgent basis" to ways to halt terrorism. White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said Nixon summoned Rogers and presi- dential adviser Henry Kissinger to a 75-minute early morning meeting in his office to discuss measures foilo-Aing the inter- national drama of polracs and violence at the Olympic Village in Munich, West Germany. Eleven members of Israel's Olympic team and five Arab terrorists were killed in the vio- lence that temporarily halted the world games. Nixon, who telephoned Israeli Prime Minister GoWa Meir Tuesday, sent her a telegram today, saying the death of the athletes "is a tragedy for all the peoples and nations of the world." Ziegler said Nixon asked Ro- gers "to consult with other gov- ernments on an urgent basis as to what collective measures bv the international community can be brought to bear on the problem of terrorism." Arab newspapers leaped to the defense of the Palestinian guerrillas today while much of the world reacted with shock and outrage to the slaving of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. "The world may call these said the Egyptian Ga- zette, but it must expect to con- tinue until Palestinian riglr- are restored...As long as Israel refuses justice, it cannot expect the Arabs to leave it in peace." The leftist Beirut paper Al Moharrer, which ss close to the Palestinian commandos, com- mented that "public opinion has always been against the Arabs, never taking their side into consideration So public opinion needs a sharp blow to become impartial." Some usually pro-Arab quar- ters commented that the Pales- tine liberation cause was being hurt by such violent acts as the Munich attack and the Te! Av.v a rpor massacre that took 28 lues late June.

Presumed dead are Warrant Officer William Pickren of Sparta and father-in-law, Charles Wendel of Charlesburg. CW03 Pickren filed a one- heur flight plan Tuesday and left New Holstein Municipal Airport at p.m. on what was described by a 5th Army Information Office spokesman as "an authorized nightly performance flight." Wreckage of the helicopter was found about a.m. today when a Civil Air Patrol plane searching for the heli- copter spotted grass disturbed ;n a circular fashion in the Hayton Swamp in a land area surrounded b y chest-deep water. An Army helicopter from Camp McCoy was called to the area, and a Capt. Dennis Oxner went down on a cable to the wreckage where he confirmed that the two men were dead. Army personnel would not confirm that the downed helicopter was actually an Army craft. An Army inves- tigating team left Camp Sheridan, 111., about a.m. to go the scene. Actual identification must await their arrival, and the removal of the bodies. This was expected to take place some time this afternoon. Three Army helicopters, a Coast Guard helicopter and Calumet County officers searched the area around New Holstein to Lake Winne- bago The wreckage spored on the Alo.s N'.sler farm. CWO Pickren had fi'.ed a flight plan to New Holsiem by way of Oshkosh. Pickren married the former Mrs. Shirley Hoeskstra last summer. Her father, Charles Wendel. of Route 2, Chilton, retired as a farmer and he formerly operated a welding shop in New Holstein. A. L. Novotney of Appleton confirmed the heli- ccpter being demolished late this morning. Army officers at Camp McCoy refused to make any comment this morning. Tlie Army spokesman at Fort Shcr.dan did confirm that a helicopter was missing, but said no confirmation on the wrecked plane belonging to the Army could be made until the investigating team arrived at the scene. Pickren was on a three- month training duty at Camp McCoy having been assigned there from Camp Wolters. Tex. He left there April 10 and was to have left Camp McCoy on Sunday.

The suit was against the Fi- nance Committee to Re-elect the President and its branches, charging them with violation of the Federal Corrupt Practices Act of 1925. Common Cause is a public-interest group. John Gardner, chairman of Common Cause and a former secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, said in a state- ment that "the President and his advisers did not read the law very carefully in taking the position that they did not have to file any reports or reveal any names prior to April 7." Effective Date April 7 was the effective date of the new Federal Election Campaign Act, which requires disclosure of all contributions of more than The Nixon fund-raisers took the position they did not have to disclose the source of funds raised before April 7. Gardner said, however, that the 1925 act requires periodic disclosure reports from "any committee which accepts con- tributions or makes ex- penditures for the purpose of influencing the election of can- didate or presidential and vice- presidential electors in two or more sta'es." StiD in Effect The suit contends that the President's finance committees "clearly fall withim the lan- guage and the purpose of the reporting requirements of the former law." The 1925 act was repealed by the new elections law, but Com- mon Cause said the suit could be filed since the alleged viola- tions occurred while it was stil, in effect.
