He told a news conference in Tehran after meeting with Secretary of State Kissinger that Iran will propose a price of $10 a barrel, a reduction of about $1.65 from current levels. members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. U. S. sources had said Kissinger hoped during his visit to Tehran to enlist the shah’s support of lower oil prices. They had said that, if the shah and King Faisal of Saudi Arabia together pushed for reductions, other OPEC countries might go along. Stands Firm Informed sources in Tehran said prior to the news conference that they expected prices to stay as they are, or possibly be increased 30 to 40 cents a barrel in December. The shah said he stood firm on his contention that oil prices should be linked to the prices of a cross-section of industrial products. “Once you do this,” he said producing and consuming nations “will have the same destiny.’’ He said that, even if the posted price is reduced to $10 a barrel, he does not expect it to lower the cost to the American consumer unless the profits of Under the plan he outlined, Israel would leave parts of the Sinai peninsula and the Golan Heights and return to Jordan all major cities of the occupied area west of the Jordan river except for Jerusalem. In exchange, Egypt would sign a no-war pact ami the Arabs would go on record at the summit for lower oil prices, which they didn’t do. Rabbo accused the U. S. of “using pressure and blackmail to force the Arab summit to accept the Kissinger plan.” He said the Arabs refused, and “must now prepare for a fifth war because we believe it is inevitable.” Trick-Treat Candv Kills Texas Boy, 8 Trapped In Cab of Pickup PASADENA, Texas (AP) —J Police have asked parents to confiscate trick-or-treat candy their children collected in the' suburban Bowling Green sub-    . division, following the cyanide    TAMA    —    I-ive    Belle Plaine poisoning death of an 8-year-o!d    residents    drowned    Friday night boy.    when    their    pickup    truck    plunged Police LL E.

State department spokesman John King said Friday the original of the letter submitted Oct. IO, 1973, to Secretary of State Kissinger apparently is missing. King acknowledged the possibility that the letter, which could have great value on the open market, might have been stolen. He said an investigation by several government agencies is under way.

Cancer Link In Chlorine In Wafer? An autopsy en the body of Timothy O’Bryan showed he died from cyanide in a 22-inch-long tube of powdered candy, Goad said. The boy’s father, who took Timothy; his sister, Elizabeth, 5, and some neighborhood children on their trick-or-treat rounds, said Timothy ate some of the candy just before going to bed Thursday night. “It seems like it wasn’t long before he was up and complaining his stomach hurt alii he didn’t feel good,” O’Bryan said. “He was bent over vomiting and I was holding him when he just went limp. It’s so disheartening to think there wasn’t more we could do. “I never even really thought it might have been a case of poisoned candy until the police told me about the cyanide . . . “We thought we wer* so careful. We had. even wondered if we should go out trick-or-treating this year.

He had been dispatched there to check a report of a oroken bridge railing. Upon arriving at the scene, the officer noted the truck upside down in the water and notified Tama county authorities. Campbell, his wife, Barbara, 27, and their children, Kenneth, 13, and Bobby Campbell, ll, and Brian Smith, 5, were in the cab of the pickup. It was ruled they were trapped in the truck and drowned.

Dawson Ahalt, the agriculture department economist who coordinated the conference, said after it ended Friday: “What I think came out of it was the whole issue ... of rigidities that do contribute to higher costs once farm products leave the farm gate. The conference reflected the fact that they are mainly government regulations, and that includes some of the remaining farm programs as well as all the regulatory things. “And steps do have to be Up Pipeline Estimate to 5.98 Billion ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -In 1969 a gallon of regular gasoline cost 48 cents in Anchorage and oilmen were planning a $90O-milIion pipeline from the North Slope oilfields. Now regular gasoline costs 62 cents a gallon here, and oilmen have been presented with a new $5.98-billion price tag for the 798-mile steel tube which won’t begin carrying oil south for at least two-and-a-half years. A vice-president of Alyeska Pipeline Service Co., a consortium for eight oil firms which is building the trans-Alaska pipeline, blamed worldwide inflation and escalating salaries for the revised cost. The company said Friday the new total includes $5.56 billion should be prepared for “a considerable uproar on the part of them. You can’t do that, be taken to eliminate those pro-,, grams.

The American press was performing its proper constitutional function in exposing the Watergate scandals, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart said Saturday. In a speech prepared for a Yale law school convocation, Stewart voiced probably the most direct public comment any of the nine high court justices has made on Watergate. He said public opinion polls he had seen indicated many Americans believed Richard Nixon was “hounded out of office by an arrogant and irresponsible press that had outrageously usurped dictatorial power.” “It is my thesis that, on the contrary, the established American press . . . particularly in the past two years, has performed precisely the function it was intended to perform by those who wrote the First Amendment of our Constitution,” Stewart said. ‘‘Perhaps our liberties might survive without an independent established press. But the founders doubted it, and in the year 1974, I think we can all be thankful for their doubts.” Stewart was invited to speak at a celebration of the 150th anniversary of the law school, of which he is a graduate.

Prior to Friday’s announcement, Alyeska’s official estimate was $4.5 billion for the project, which will employ 14,000 persons during its peak He built his remarks around the portion of the First Amendment which prohibits government from “abridging freedom of speech or of the press.” He said it is “a mistake to suppose that the only purpose of the constitutional guarantee of a free press is to insure that a newspaper will serve as a neutral forum for debate.” He added: “For centuries before our revolution the press in England had been licensed, censored and bedeviled by prosecution for seditious libel. The British crown knew that a free press was not just a neutral vehicle for the balanced discussion of diverse ideas. Todays Index “Instead the free press meant organized, expert scrutiny of government. The free {construction period, press was a conspiracy of the intellect, with the courage of numbers. This formidable check on official power was what the British crown had feared — and what the American founders decided to risk. “If a newspaper wants to serve as a neutral marketplace for debate, that is an objective which it is free to choose. And within limits that choice is probably necessary to commercially successful journalism. But it is a choice that government cannot constitutionally impose.” Comics 5 Church ... 3 Crossword 5 Daily Record * Deaths ............. ........2 Editorial Features . ........ 4 Financial ll Marion 6 Movies ... 7 Sports 9, IO Television 6 Want Ads.......... i mmi i i iff ......12-15 ;
