VOLUME! 92 NUMBER 115 4sdue l\mmU CITY FINAL IO CENTS V.* CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1974 WORD ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES PAT Kissinger Gain Seen With Syria ALEXANDRIA, Egypt (UPI) — A high American official said Saturday that Israel and Syria are in “negotiating range” on troop disengagement in the Golan Heights on all except one issue — how far Israel would withdraw. On all other issues of disengagement there was “reasonable progress” during Secretary of State Kissinger’s seven hours of talks Friday with Syrian President Hafez Assad, the official said. He spoke to newsmen during a flight from Damascus to the Gianaclis airbase outside Alexandria, where Kissinger’s presidential jet arrived late Saturday morning. “Restraint” Hope The official said he would not be surprised if Syrian and Israeli troops would exercise “restraint” in the Golan Heights fighting even without a ceasefire agreement, and he said he believed there was an understanding an exchange of war prisoners would be included in an eventual disengagement agreement. Kissinger and his party flew by helicopter from the Gianaclis base to the maamoura government rest house where Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was staying on Alexandria’s eastern outskirts. American sources said Sadat would be briefed on talks with Syrian and Israeli leaders. Sadat was waiting and walked across the lawn to greet Kissinger as his helicopter landed The two embraced, kissing each other on both cheeks.

In an airport statement in Damascus, Kissinger said his meetings with Syrian leaders were “constructive” and he would return to Damascus early next week. Syrian Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister Abdel Halim Khaddam, who saw Kissinger off at the airport, said, “We are always happy to see you here.” Kissinger was to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir Saturday night prior to an Israeli cabinet session Sunday. * * * ON AND ON — Mrs. Horace Daggett, acting secretary tor her husband, a Republican representative from Kent, coos gently to her son, Douglas, as the Iowa legislature grinds toward adjournment.
