funds as payments to maintain the inflated rolls the Tribune said Others said they simply re registered former scout troops without verifying membership figures or a troops continued existence If they refused to hedge they faced possible dismissal the staff members claimed Still the actual number of the phantom scouts isnt known Barber said the cheating seems confined mainly to the profes sional

a defendant of his full legal rights does not bar the use of all evidence obtained from him The court in an 8tol ruling reversed a lower court decision overturning the rape conviction of a Michigan man who was not told during police interrogation that he had a right to legal counsel Writing for the court Justice William H Rehnquist acknowl edged that police failed to pro vide Thomas W Tucker the Ml range of rights But he said Just as the law does not require that a defend ant receive a perfect trial only a fair one it cannot realistically require that policemen inves tigating a serious crime

fighters according to U SQ in telligence reports Sources said 16 crated MIG23 Floggers reportedly were sent to Syria recently aboard Rus sian merchant ships Intelligence has been watching for these deliveries since early last month when MIG23 crates were seen at Nikolayev a Black Seaport from which Russia ships most military equipment to Arab countries The swingwing MIG23 whose top speed is nearly 2000 miles an hour is rated signigieantly better than the older MIG21 which until now has been the best Russian fighter ex ported IT S analysts said the MIG23 does have some weaknesses particularly in its combat oper ating range They said one squadron will not influence the relative air power balance with Israel President leaves for Middle East Nixon refuses again to honor subpoenas By the Associated Press President Nixon left on the first leg of his Middle East tour today as a Syrian source called for the Geneva peace conference to deal only with restoring Palestinian rights and completing Israeli withdrawal from occupied territories when the session resumes Nixon was heading for Austria for an overnight stop Wednes day he flies to Egypt From there he goes to Saudi Arabia Syria Israel and Jordan He returns home June 19 In Damascus a highly reliable Syrian source said Damascus is actively trying to bring about at least one Arab minisummit in the very near future for the adoption of a joint stand calling on the Geneva conference to take up the question of Palesti nian rights and Israeli with drawal The source did not reveal where this one or more mini summits would be held or who would attend them It was sur mised however that Syria Egypt and Jordan who will at tend the Geneva conference would want to meet to coordi nate their policies following the signing of the disengagement agreement between Syria and Israel It is expected the minisummit will take place later this month Trip caught up in confroversy Analysis on page 8 after the end of Nixons Middle East tour It is also expected that Arab leaders hosting Nixon will endeavor to convince him to openly adopt the basic Arab premise that there can be no peace without complete Israeli withdrawal and restoration of Palestinian rights Meanwhile Israel accused Syria of brutal torture of Is raeli prisoners and said it will protest to the United Nations Syria counted with charges that Israel mistreated Arab prisoners Each government denied the others accusations Despite the exchange of atrocity charges an Israeli military command spokesman said disengagement of forces on the Golan Heights was pro ceeding according to schedule The state said Israeli troops were establishing new antitank defenses west of the Golan post and bulldozing a high embank ment between Syrian territory and nearby Israeli settle ments Washington CAP President Nixon refused again today to honor any more House impeachment inquiry sub poenas writing to House Ju diciary Committee Chairman Peter W Rodino Jr that hewill do nothing which would render the executive branch henceforth and forevermore subservient to the legislative branch Nixons sixpage letter to Ro dino was in response to the Ju diciary Committees subpoena for tapes of 45 conversations related to the Watergate scan dal The letter was released by the White House The committee voted 37 to 1 on May 29 to subpoena the tapes even though Nixon had already refused to comply with an earlier subpoena from the committee and had said he would reject any further sub poenas for material related to Watergate Nixon declared again today that the voliminous body of materials that the committee already has does give the full story of Watergate insofar as it relates to presidential knowledge and presidential decisions Nixon said that if the insti tution of an impeachment in quiry against the President were permitted to override all re straints of separation of powers this would spell the end of the doctrine of separation of power it would be an open invitation to future Congresses to use an im peachment inquiry however frivolously as a device to assert their own supremacy over the executive and to reduce execu says fie warned Nixon Story on page 18 tive confidentiality to a nulli ty Rodino had written Nixon on May 30 that committee mem berscould draw an adverse in ference if Nixon refused to sup ply subpoenaed materials But Nixon said that a claim ot privilege must beaccepted without adverse inference or else the privilege itself is un dermined and the separation of powers nullified This is the key issue in my insistence that the executive must remain the final arbiter of demands on its confidentiality just as the legislative and dicial branches must remain the final arbiters of demands on their confidentiality Nixon said that if the com mittee believes ambiguities ex ist it should call live witnesses who can place the existing evi dence in perspective He said subpoenaing more tapes and transcripts would ex tend the proceedings intermi nably while addinig nothing substantial to the evidence the committee already has The Judiciary Committee subpoena is the fourth the com mittee has sent Nixon It got edited transcripts instead of tapes in response to the first one and nothing for the next two which called for more tapes and some White House logs Special Counsel John Doar already has told Hie Judiciary Committee he will request an other subpoena at its next busi ness meeting This one would cover taped conversations relating to the settlement of an International Telephone Telegraph Corp antitrust suit and to a 1971 in crease in milk price supports The committee asked for 66 tapes but got only one partial transcript The committee also is ready to issue a subpoena for an In ternal Revenue Service audit of Nixons income taxes and sup porting data that St Clair said more than a week ago he would provide but that has not been delivered Senate leaders call trip Very useful1 Washington AP Senate leaders of both political parties applauded President Nixons trip to the Middle East today as a very useful mis sion Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield DMont told the Senate that Secretary of State Henry Kissinger had reached a pleateau in achieving disen gagement agreements between Israel and Arab states but there is still a long high difficult mountain to climb Mansfield said he believed the Presidents visit to the Middle East will be very useful as sistance to Secretary Kissinger in the future Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania said the President deserves the good wishes of the country Referring to a statement by Sen Henry Jackson DWash that the trip is fraught with danger and will be more cere monial than of substance Scott said
