Continue Probe Of Army Thefts CALGARY (CP) - An investigation into the possible theft of military supply goods from Canadian Forces Base Calgary is still in progress, Denny Ryan, an information officer for the department of national defence, said here. The investigation involves a sergeant who has served at the base for eight years and who first came under suspicion early in May when goods of a military supply nature were found in his possession. The sergeant's house was searched May 7 and about $5,-000 worth of stationery supplies, tools and equipment and items of clothing found in the house are being examined. The sergeant was placed under arrest by military police May 7 and later released. He now is regularly employed at the base while the military police investigation is in progress. Mr. Ryan said civilian police authorities are not involved in the investigation. Arab Chiefs Meet By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Arab leaders met in Libya Sunday and1 apparently discussed ways of co-operating activities of the numerous Palestinian guerrilla groups who use their countries as springboards for raids against Israel. President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt was among the heads of state who assembled in Tripoli, ostensibly to celebrate evacuation of United States' and British military bases in the North African desert country. The Libyan news agency said "the Palestinian question and the great number of commando organizations" were discussed. Representatives of the joint committee of the Palestinian Guerrilla Organization attended. Yasir Arafat, the chief guerrilla leader, did not attend but he sent a message urging the leaders to intervene to prevent new fighting between the guerrillas and the Jordanian army. "The situation is so grave that a new eruption is likely at any moment," said Arafat, adding that the ceasefire agreement is being "seriously endangered by provocative acts by those who engineered the previous clashes." DISSENSION COMMON Presumably he was referring to anti-guerrilla elements in the Jordanian army. But dissension has also been prevalent in recent months between moderate and radical factions of the Palestinian guerrillas raiding Israel from Jordan and Lebanon. In the fighting in Amman two weeks ago, the extremist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine for several days-refused to observe ceasefires agreed to by Arafat and King Hussein, and instead forced the king to dismiss his two top army commanders. During the weekend, one of the former Jordanian com-m a n d e r s, the king's uncle, Sherif Nasser Bin Jamil, flew to London. The guerrillas had demanded the banishment; government-controlled newspapers in Amman said he went to England "for some leave." Hussein also has sent his four children to London, but diplomatic sources there discounted any political significance in the move. The children's mother, British-born Princess Muna, 29, will join them in a few days, the Jordanian embassy said. U.S. Railway Can't Pay Its Bills PHILADELPHIA (A P) - Saying it is unable to pay its bills, the United States' largest railway, Penn Central, received court permission Sunday to reorganize under federal bankruptcy laws. Meanwhile, it continues normal operations. Prices on the New York Stock Exchange dropped sharply at its opening in reaction to the news. One-half hour after the opening bell, the Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks plunged 8.15 points to 712.28 and then stayed near that level. "Penn Central is the reason, almost completely," said Newton Zinder, a stock analyst. "The selling is based on fundamentals as much as emotional factors. One company has already fallen, and there is some conjecture which company might be next." Trading in Penn Central Transportation Co. and Penn Central Co. stocks were delayed. The exchange said the delay was caused by a large influx of buy or sell orders. Eastern Finn To Buy Calgary Oil Company TORONTO (CP) - Brascan Ltd. announced here that it has agreed to purchase all the shares of Mikas Oil Co. Ltd. of Calgary. J. H.
