The William complained that the subpoena even sought Rebozo's grocery bills. The committee wants the records of an unsecured loan it said was made to Rebozo by Tricia Nixon Cox in and an unsecured loan made to Rebozo by Nixon in January or 1973. The Watergate committee also rejected unanimously a claim of executive privilege made by White House chief of staff Alexander Haig and or- dered him to reappear before the committee and answer all questions.

Although Israel is willing to eive UD all the Syrian land it captured in the October it has offered only a token withdrawal from the Golan Heights territory seized in the 1967 war. The Syrians want much more as a first step toward complete Israeli withdrawal from the Heights. But the Israelis have given no indication of a retreat from their often-repeated stand that they will never return all of the plateau from which the Syrians shelled northern Israel at will.
