FRIDAY, JULY 5, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Lebanon in Refusal of Arab Help By United Press International Lebanon has rejected offers of immediate troops and weapons from other Arab countries to defend Palestinian refugee camps on its territory from Israeli reprisal raids, Beirut press reports said Friday. The reports said the Beirut government warned Arab states at a two-day conference in Cairo that Israel was waiting for a pretext to occupy parts of southern Lebanon and a major military conflict might be touched off. Conference sources said Friday that the delegates adopted secret resolutions calling for military, political and financial support to Lebanon, but rejected sending Arab troops or planes — as Egypt. Syria and Algeria proposed. Suspension Asked The Beirut newspaper Al Anwar said Lebanese Foreign Minister Fuad Naffah called at the meeting for a suspension of all guerilla activities pending the outcome of the Middle East, peace conference, expected to reconvene in October.

(’HARLESTON. W. Va (AP) — A long-standing family feud that erupted into gunfire and fistfighting left seven persons injured, one critically, police said Friday Deputies said the battle in Sigman Fork Hollow on Tupper creek, just north of Charleston, was between families headed by Paul Burdette and Pe arle Burdette, apparently not related. At least 15 adults and children were involved in the fracas that began Thursday with hand-to-hand lighting in the road between the Burdette homes, deputies said. The fisticuffs were followed by gunfire between one family’s house and the other’s house trailer Deputy Joseph Kellam said the shooting was going on when he and Deputy Ron Ault/, arrived "We made ourselves known as lawmen, and bleeding men, women and children from both sides came pouring out of the home .iud the trailer,” Kellam said. “Every window in the trailer had been shot out ” He said the families had been mad .it each other for several years over a series of incidents involving disputes between children, pets and other neighborhood matters. Kellam and Ault/, said they confiscated an assortment of guns including rifles and shotguns. The butt of one rifle was broken, apparently when it was used to strike someone over the head, they said David Burdette, 23, was listed in critical condition after surgery for a rifle wound to the back of the head. Woody Burdette, 38. was in fair condition with a gunshot hip wound. Fay Burdette, 30, and four juveniles — girls and boys of both families — were treated for cuts, bruises and other wounds and released. It was not immediately known how the victims were related. No arrests were made, and the investigation was continuing. “We have to sort out what was what before any charges are made,” said Kellam. hour flight from Moscow Nixon took a boat ride on Biscayne bay Thursday afternoon with his neighbor, C.
