FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL CAIRO (AP) Egypt said Sunday that the Suez canal will be open to Israeli shipping when there is peace in the Middle East. "This is absolutely said information officer Kamal Abu Magd. "We have no inhibitions. There is no doubletalk. The canal will be open to world navigation without exception." "We have all intentions of honoring our Abu Magd said. He told a group of reporters that the clearance of the canal and reconstruction of its war- hammered cities was moving "very quickly and we hope to make the area one of the most peaceful in the world." Egypt hopes the canal will be ready for international shipping by March, 1975, but its opening is a political deci- sion that depends on moves toward peace. Freedom of navigation through the 103-mile long waterway is guaranteed by the 1888 Constantinople convention. In the past, Egypt has cited one article of this document saying Egypt may close the canal for defence of its territory as its reason for barring Israeli shipping.

Phone 328-5541 presidential confirmation hearings with a 72-page statement, crammed with financial data about the Rock- efellers' worldwide investments and tidbits of family and personal history. He promised that, "should I become confirmed and should Congress request, I will place immediately all my securities which I own outright" into a blind trust while he retains federal office. In his statement, Rockefeller failed to answer questions about the over-all extent of his family's economic power, omitting in- formation on stock holdings of Rockefeller-controlled tax ex- empt foundations and of banks and companies in which his family has a substantial inter- est. Rockefeller said his net per- sonal worth as of Aug. 23 was million with more than half accounted for by art hold- ings. The two trusts from which he is a life beneficiary, totall- ing million and million, have the bulk of their holdings in stock of 17 com- panies, including approx- imately million in Rockefeller Centre Inc. in New York; million in Exx- on; and million in Inter- national Business Machines Holdings in oil companies that were once part of the Standard Oil Co. founded by his grandfather, John D. Rockefeller, "have been reduced to nominal percen- tages." Total holdings, per- sonal and in trusts, of his three brothers, sister and their children and grandchildren are 3.5 million shares of Standard Oil Co. of California, or 2.06 per cent of its shares; 2.3 million shares of Exxon, or 1.07 per cent of its shares; and 1.8 million shares of Mobil Oil Co., or 1.75 per cent of its shares. Although Rockefeller's financial statement disclosed more about his wealth than had been known previously, the committee is expected to question him closely about his finances. Committee Chairman Howard Cannon said Sunday the danger of conflict of interest between Rockefeller's government duties and his financial affairs was one of the most serious problems facing the com- mittee.
