Israelis Drive Back Egyptian Recon Force
-NINETY-TWO PAGES IN SEVEN SECTIONS 10c DAILY_25c SUNDAY A^ttd Pre* (JP,
TEL AVIV (AF’) — Israel said a small Egyptian reconnaissance force tried to cross the Suez (anal Saturday but was driven back.
A military spokesman said one Egyptian was killed in the clash with an Israeli army patrol on the canal’s southern sector. He reported no Israeli casualties.
Israel charged that the incident was a “serious violation ’ of the U.S. initiated cease-fire in a complaint to the United Nations truce supervision organization in Jerusalem.
Egypt denied the claim and accused Israel of “murdering” a civilian in occupied Sinai.
A statement circulated bv Cairo’s official Middle East news agency said Israel was “attempting to absolve herself of a crime by fabricating this story and blaming the Egyptians for the alleged violation of the cease-fire.”
Egypt’s deputy minister of information. Munis Hafez, said, “It could be a group of smugglers, who have increased their activities lately. Israel is trying to benefit from this to show that Egyptians are not respecting the cease-fire and to deceive world public opinion.
“Such allegations would deceive nobody.”

BUT KEEPS HUNTER
Throck Defeats Airport Bond Issue
THROCKMORTON (RNS) -Throckmorton County voters Saturday chose to retain the services of a predatory animal hunter and defeated by a large margin a $30,000 airport bond issue.
The vote on the airport issue was 462 against and 147 for with the vote running about the same against the proposal in all six boxes in the county.
The second proposition before the voters was whether the county would continue payment for the services of a fulltime hunter and that was passed 483 for and 130 against.
The Texas Aeronautical Commission had approved a
DON'T JOST SIT THERE! GET THAT SHOPPING DONE! ONLY 16 DAYS , LEFT, YOU KNOW!
grant of $27,500 to help in the financing of an airport and the bond issues defeated Saturday was to pay for the matching of the governmental grant.
The Chamber of Commerce In Throckmorton had been behind the airport proposal and chamber president Walter Merriman said Saturday, “My only reaction is that the people have had their say.”
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 the first time it had come to a vote since he has been here.
Baker, who will have been the
county's hunter for 21 years Jan. 15, said his job was “to control
predatory animals ... not destruction...just the control of them for ranchers.”
Tile hunter said he “really didn't know” why there was opposition to his job continuing to exist.

time a force from either side of the canal had attempted to cross the waterway since the cease-fire went into effect Aug. 7.
Israeli military sources expressed belief the infiltrators were a small band of highly trained reconnaissance specialists. They said the radio transmitter and other military equipment found near the dead Egyptian indicated the group was sent to report recent developments 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 apparency infiltrated behind Israeli forward positions it showed they were skilled commandos.
Although the military spokesman made no mention of prisoners it can be assumed the other invaders escaped to the Egyptian side of the canal, the sources added.
The sources would not pinpoint the clash, but said it was in the Bitter Lakes region of the southern sector.
The Egyptians were showing increased nervousness and have made several attempts at reconnaissance recently, they said.

Jeane Not Heeded
.. . And Moscow to Decide Viet War
By John Thomas Reporter-News Staff Writer
CISCO — Peace in Vietnam will be finalized along formulas drawn up in Moscow, psychic Jeane Dixon told an overflow crowd at Cisco Junior College Saturday night, because her counsel was ignored by the “powers that be,” in Washington when she urged the support of the Diem government in South Vietnam.
Mrs. Dixon, speaking in the college’s annual Current Affair’s series, told the audience she has been “misunderstood, misquoted and completely ignored.”
She said she often feels a kinship with the foreteller of the fall of Troy, Cassandra, because, she said, her effort to forestall the murders of President John F. Kennedy, Sen. Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King went unheeded.
The thing that will unite our nation, will be a common “deep respect for the talents we all have.” Mrs. Dixon emphasized in her talk the religious basis for her oft-reported predictions. “We’re not created equally.
We all have different talents,” Mrs. Dixon said.
Today we need transformation and not revolution ... if we are to be great and good and strong we must do God’s will,” by fullfilling our God-granted talents, Mrs. Dixon said.
Her column on astrology runs daifly in the afternoon Reporter-News. She noted that her annual predictions on the fate of the nation will appear about the middle of January.
She said the nation Is in
danger because the military balance of power has shifted to the Communist world. She said a resulting war will make allies of the United States and the USSR in five years.
However, she said, Congress will strengthen our military forces to a degree that might allow us to negotiate with the Soviets from a position of strength.

Shoplifting Reporter Finds Sales Staff Helpful
By TOM WELLS Associated Press Writer
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (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, although as I browsed through Beik’s, Charlotte’s largest department store, I thought, too, about the stiff penalties for shoplifters: one year in jail if caught with $100 or less worth of goods and five years in jail if caught with $500 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 security operation.
Before I knew it, there I was, standing as if hypnotized before the first item on my list—a 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 buttoned.
“May I help you, sir,” asked a pretty, petite young clerk coming from nowhere and scaring the dickens out of me.
“No, no, just doing a little looking around,” I said, not as nonchalantly as I wished.
Perspiration rolled down my forehead as the salesgirl retreated to another counter. Seconds 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 $600 IN MERCHANDISE . . . nervous reporter looks out across store as he stuffs bra inside coat
I carried the toy to my dropoff spot. I did not attempt to cross the line into actual illegality 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 ta
ble lighter worth $19.95, and a $26 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 slip from street floor lingerie, a brassiere from third-floor lingerie, a girl’s nightgown, a pair of boys’ trousers from the basement 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 now,” she said, and gave a store smile-“Did it get too hot for it?”
If she had only known that about an hour earlier when I
saw her I had been wearing that j heavy, wool-lined coat to con-ceal a pair of $12 flair-bottom J trousers.
Final stop: the fur depart* J ment-
The sales lady was helpful In my selection, a natural mink cape for only $405.
I sized up the cape for wrapping my own coat around it.
She withdrew to the rear of the department, out of sight, to “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 over 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 $604.28 worth of goods, plus tax.
I returned to drop-offpoint, the office of Leroy Robinson, vice president and general manager of Beik’s.
Robinson had said he had little idea I would be so successful in my four hours of shoplifting even though we 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 division managers were called in. They stood around a long conference table I had piled with the merchandise.
Beik’s has since given all its sales personnel further schooling on shoplifting tactics. Also, there are concealed personnel watching for shoplifters.
One Abilene woman wrote, “This letter is for two small girls who are staying with grandparents. The father’s whereabouts is unknown. The mother is in the state prison. They need something to brighten their life.”
A 14-year-old girl wrote, “I have two brothers, two sisters. Mother is out of work. My father is a cripple we get welfare help only we need toys and food and clothes. Thank you.” Contributions and requests may be mailed to the Goodfellows, Abilene Reporter-News, P. O. Box 30, Abilene, Texas, 79604.
