UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Shelling Thunders over Golan After Savage Weekend Battle By Associated Press Israeli and Syrian gunners traded artillery and tank fire on the Golan Heights front Monday after a weekend of the hardest fighting since the October war. Damascus radio said Syria’s defense minister, Maj. Gen. Mustafa Tlas, made a quick trip to the “forward command headquarters of Syrian forces on Mt. Hermon.” This was the first official Syrian reference to such a command since the October war. Northern Sector The Israeli military command said shelling resumed this morning along the northern sector of the 300-square mile bulge captured by Israel during the October fighting. The announcement made no mention of casualties. Israeli fighter-bombers o n Sunday attacked Syrian forces on Mt. Hermon and Ihe Golan Heights while below them the armies of the two countries battled fiercely with tanks and artillery. The Israeli military command said all its planes returned safely Sunday, denying a Syrian claim that four were downed. Syria also claimed 50 Israeli ground troops were killed or wounded, hut Israel said only 17 were wounded. Syria said 15 of its soldiers were killed and IO were wounded. Israel said a Syrian commando unit made another attempt to capture an Israeli observation post at the northern end of 9,000-foot Mt. Hermon, which has an unrestricted view for IOO miles and more into Syria. Dawn Discovery The Syrians have been trying to capture the post since April 6. Israel said the commandos! were discovered at dawn Sunday, and the Israelis at the post counterattacked. Syrian artillery opened up to give the commandos cover, and the Israelis retaliated with artillery and fighter-bombers. The Israelis said the comman-1 dos were “destroyed.” and 12 Syrian bodies were found. But later in the day, tanks and artillery dueled the length of the 40-mile front across the Golan Heights, and Israeli planes attacked the Syrian positions for four hours during the afternoon,! the Israeli command said. Meanwhile, President Eh-praim Katzir gave the Labor party IO days to find a successor to Premier Golda Meir. He said if they didn’t come up with one, he would call on the leader of the right-wing Likud block, Menahem Begin, to try. The U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv reported to the state department that Yitzhak Rabin, a 52-year-old hero of the 1967 war and a former ambassador to the U.S., was the odds-on favorite for the premiership.

Speech UNITED NATIONS (AP) -Secretary of State Kissinger I Monday outlined a six-point program aimed at a more cooperative development of the world s natural resources. In a speech prepared for a .special session of the U.N.’s General Assembly, the secretary said “We meet here at a ' moment when the wrorld economy is under severe stress.” Pointing to the oil crisis, shortage of food grains and increasing global inflation, Kissinger said the solution can come only through a realistic, international effort. “The great issues of development can no longer be realistically perceived in terms of confrontation between the haves and have nots,” he said. Any effort by the less developed nations to artificially control raw materials “will sooner or later produce the organiza-j tion of the potential victims into a counterbloc,” Kissinger said in a not tor subtle warning. In introducing his six points, the secretary also underlined his belief that the U.S. should avoid grandiose declarations of principles and aim for hard work instead. “Our goal,” he said, “cannot be reached by resolutions alone or prescribed by rhetoric. It must remain the subject of constant, unremitting, efforts over the years and decades ahead.” The six points: Action must be taken to insure a more equitable supply of oil and other energy products while keeping an inflationary price spiral from occurring. For its part the U.S. is willing to help oil-producing nations broaden their economic base as well as sharing technology and aiding in industrialization. There must he an end lo the cycle of raw material surplus and shortage. But a cartel of raw material producers aimed it forcing up prices “would have serious consequences for all countries,” Kissinger said. The U.S. proposes a cooperative effort to include “urgent international consideration of restrictions on incentives for the trade in commodities.” This means, the secretary said, that there must be equitable access to supplies of resources as well as access to markets by the producers. To support this there should be a body of international experts working with the U.N. Divisions of Resources to determine the future supply of natural resources, he said. There must be a better balance between food production and population growth. The U.S. will share its agricultural technology, including a raise from $258 million to $675 million this year to aid in boosting farming technology. Kissinger also renewed his call for a World Food Conference. A major objective, he went on, will be the rebuilding of food surpluses so the world can alleviate famines and other emergency shortages.
