Palestinian guerillas assumed responsibility for an attack early Tuesday on the Israeli seacoast town of Nahariyya and said it was a reprisal for Israeli air raids on Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. Cut Down Four Israelis were killed, in- cluding a woman and her two children who tried to escape the guerillas by jumping out an apartment building window. An Israeli soldier was killed in the ensuing attack on the building. The three attacking guerillas were cut down when Israeli troops blasted their way into an apartment building where they were holding out. Six soldiers and a civilian were wounded.

Newsmen reported that Israe- li heavy artillery opened up on a Lebanese village hours after the guerilla raid. -1 Denied Report An Israeli military spokesman denied the shelling report. The newsmen said the shell- ing of the Lebanese village of Jouaya 12 miles from the Israeli frontier began at sunset. The newsmen said some peo- ple were hurt in the bombard- Four Austrian Soldiers Die in Golan Blast By Associated Press Four Austrian soldiers of the U. N. Disengagement Observer Force in the Golan Heights were killed and one wounded Tuesday when a land, mine exploded, a spokesman at U. N. head- quarters in New York reported. The explosion occurred as 500 Syrian soldiers worked to clear mines from the buffer zone sep- arating Syrian and Israeli troops. The spokesman. William Pow- ell, said the victims were among UNDOF troops moving into the buffer zone. He had no other details. They were the first casualties of the observer force set up in the troop disengagement agree- ment worked out this spring by Secretary of State Kissinger to end months of fighting in the Golan. A U. N. spokesman in Damas- cus said the Syrian soldiers were put to work clearing land mines because of fears that the explosives would hamper Syrian civilians' return to the em- battled area. UP1 Correspondent Thomas Ackernian reported from north- ern Israel seeing two Israeli Phantom lighter-bombers streaking below radar level in the direction of Lebanon. The statement of the Pales- tinian general command did not identify the organization to which the three Arab attackers belonged, but other guerilla sources in Beirut said they be- longed to Al Fatah, the largest guerilla organization. Touched Shore The guerillas landed at the resort of Nahariyya, a town of about four miles south of the Lebanese border. They came in from the Medi- terranean on a rubber, raft equipped with an outboard motor and touched shore about 200 yards from the three-story apartment building, an Israeli military spokesman said. The Palestinian news agency WAFA claimed in Damascus, Syria, the attack was staged by Palestinians based in Israel in- stead of Lebanon and denied that the terrorists had entered Israel by boat. Neighbors said the assault began an hour before midnight and ended hours later when army troops stormed the white concrete and stone building under heavy fife. "There is a possibility that more attempts may'be made by sea because the guerillas might be finding it harder to cross the frontier by an Israeli military spokesman said after inspecting the rubber raft. Gunfire Answered Witnesses in Nahariyya said the guerillas were first seen by two civilian guards who ordered them to halt in the street and were answered by gunfire as the raiders rushed for the apart- ment building. Authorities said the guerillas apparently planned to strike a school in the neighborhood where students were to prepare for an end-of-term party later in the day. "The first thing I heard was said Mrs. Hanna Halevi, a tenant in the apart- m e n t building. "We didn't move. We were afraid to make noise." The guerillas went through the building spraying each apartment door with machine gun fire, then broke into the apartment where Mrs. Irene Zarakin, a 38-year-old kinder- garten teacher, her husband and two children were hiding.

His 'resignation is effective Sept. 16 so his seat can be filled at this September's school board election. Responsibility If his resignation were effec- tive earlier than that, he said, the board would have to appoint a replacement within 10 days. In a letter announcing his res- ignation, Sovern said a "shift of responsibility from local school boards to the legislature" has occurred in the last four years. "This erosion of local prero- gatives has regrettably oc- curred in the absence of a cor- responding sensitization of stale government to the very immedi- ate needs of children and their Sovern said. A Factor Another factor in his resigna- hope of preserving the 62-vote victory he scored in the June 4 primary election over Nicholas Johnson, 39, Kesley. His manager, Charles Crews of Waterloo, told reporters "we're starting to campaign im- mediately four precincts." No Authorization? Johnson and his supporters also were hitting the campaign trail after the candidate, a former member of the Federal Communications Commission, charged Democratic state party officials acted without authoriza- Meanwhile, Tama county Au- ditor Alvin Ohrt told The Ga- zette by telephone he is "busier than a cranberry merchant at Christmas time" preparing for the hurry-up election. With only a week until elec- tion day, Ohrt already had in hand the names of four of five election officials who'll serve in the new voting precinct on the Mesquakie Indian settlement and he said he's asking officials who served in the other three precincts June 4 to serve again July 2. Nominate Officials In issuing his order for the new elections in Cedar Rapids Monday, Federal Judge Edward McManus decreed the Sac and Fox tribal council should nomin- ate officials to serve in the new settlement polling place July 2. Ohrt'said the council had nominated Karen Bear Morris, Adeline Wanatee, Peggy Wana- tion of the slate central commit-j tee and Curtis Davenport tee in entering the court case four of the five officials. urday to those who want to cas absentee ballots. Absentee Ballots Application may be made for absentee ballots immediately he said, but added there is slight chance any that woulc have to be mailed would be re turned in time to be counted. Ohrt reiterated Tuesday thai a survey by his office indicatec no Indians had voted in Mon tour, Tama or Toledo's Firsl ward in the June 4 primary, even though the lawyer for Democratic officials said they had indications some had voted. It was because of this, ap- parently, that Judge McManus ordered new elections in these three precincts as well as first-time election on the settle- ment grounds. Denied Voting Right The order resulted from a suil brought by some settlement In- dians charging they were deniec the right to vote June 4 because DKS MOINES (AP) The federal government said Mon- day that it has declared 37 Iowa counties disaster areas in the wake of last week's storms. (lov. Robert Hay had asked that counties be named. Tiie counties eligible for dis- aster aid are Allamakee, Ben- ton, Butler, Carroll, Cass, Ce- dar, Clayton, Clinton, Crawford, Delaware, DCS Moines, Du- jbuquc, Greene and Guthrie. Also Harrison, Iowa, Jack- son, Jasper, Johnson, Jones, Kcokuk, Linn, Louisa, Madi- son, Mahaska, Marion, Mar- Mitchell, Monona, Polk, Poweshick, Ringgold, Scott, Story, Tama, Van Buren and Warren. The Federal Disaster Assist- ance Administration's regional director, Francis Tobin, said in Kansas City that one-stop dis- aster assistance centers have 3een set up in Ankeny, Marengo and Dubuque. The centers are where individ- uals in the declared counties who suffered damage can seek help and information. The Iowa disaster resulted from severe storms and flood- ing beginning about May 13. Assistance for Iowa will in elude temporary housing, dis aster unemployment assistance debris removal, repair or res toration of streets, bridges am public facilities, and low-inter est loans.

According to the state trooper who investigated the accident the girl was westbound on the bicycle and attempted to tun left onto a gravel road to go to her home.

In a brief statement before caving nearby Andrews air 'orce base, Nixon listed three goals for his summit meeting vilh Soviet leaders: To strengthen tics between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. To "develop areas of cooper- ation to displace areas of con- rontation" elsewhere in the world, and To progress toward limiting both the burden and threat of nuclear weapons." The Moscow summit is ex-' pected to produce a partial ban on underground nuclear weap- ons tests and an agreement in principle to harness fast-devel- oping nuclear technology. Comprehensive Treaty But Secretary of State Kissin- ger told a news conference Mon- day that the third annual sum- mit is unlikely to produce a comprehensive treaty limiting offensive nuclear weapons. Nixon, Kissinger and a huge entourage were to stop first in Brussels so that Nixon can sign a new declaration of trans-At- lantic cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion on Wednesday. "Our purpose in Brussels will be to meet with old friends and renew our support of the great NATO Nixon said. He said he hoped the declara- tion to be signed there would bring "new purpose and new di- rection" to the alliance. The Chief Executive spoke in- formally to a group of White House employes before making the helicopter ride to Andrews. He was accompanied to An- drews by his daughters, Tricia Cox and Julie Eisenhower. The presidential party, includ- ing Nixon and Kissinger, departed from Andrews 'at a.m. CDT. NATO Officials In Brussels, Nixon will confer also with Italian Prime Minis- ter Mariano Rumor, West Ger- man Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, British Prime Minis- ter Wilson and NATO officials. Nixon will spend a week in the Soviet Union, arriving there Thursday. The top subject on his agenda is nuclear weapons controls.
