busters the Supreme Court today upheld the General Dynamic Corps takeover of an Illinois Coal Mining Co In a 5 to 4 decision the court rejected the Justice Department challenge of the merger as an ticompetitive Government antitrust lawyers contended the merger with United Electric Coal Companies heightened tie concentration of coal production among a handful of firms in the Eastern interior coal fields United Electric has one South ern Illinois strip mine Fidelity No 11 near Du Quoin It em ploys 162 miners The court majority held that United Electric had no demonstrable capacity t o competition as an in Dynamics takeover of United Electric gets court approval dependent firm so the takeover by General Dynamics did not significantly alter the com petitive situation Justice Potter Stewart was joined in the majority by the four Nixon appointees to t h e court Chief Justice Warren Burger and Justices Harry A Blackmun Lewis F Powell Jr and William H Rehnquist Stewart noted that government lawyers based their case on statistics demonstrating a trend toward increasing the con centration among the producers in those coal fields But he said the governments position failed to take into ac count fundamental changes in the market for coal Stewart said United Electees past production was of little use in indicating its future com Testifies in raid cose Mrs Giglotto agent said

Kuwait AP A parliamentary committee has recommended that Kuwait take over ownership of Western oil installations on its territory by 1979 sources close to the committee said today The committee urged the Na tional Congress to reject an agreement giving the state 60 per cent ownership of the operations run jointly by British Petroleum and Gulf Oil of America until 1979 Instead the committee pro posed that the 60 per cent be a starting point for a progressive takeover to be completed in the next five years the sources said The report by the finance and economy committee will be submitted to the 50man con gress The sources said the government may accept the recommendation without a vote if it determines that a majority of the legislators approve it The Kuwait government sign ed a pact with BP and Gulf in January to acquire 60 per cent ownership of their Kuwait Oil Co The company produces about 90 per cent of Kuwaits daily output of 32 million bar rels The oilrich Persian Gulf state

although United ranked fifth among Illinois coal producers in terms of annual production it ranked 10th in reserve holdings and controlled less than one per cent of the reserves held by pro ducers in Illinois Indiana and westernKentucky However the acquisition of the strip mining company helped make General Dynamics the nations fifth largest com mercial coal producer In the dissenting opinion

have risen strongly when the longawaited to the Arab oil embargo finally came But logic wasnt doing the buying and selling of shares as the market respond ed to the news with a swift and decisive drop The Dow Jones average of 30 Industrial stocks swung upward very briefly when the word reached Wall Street about 1 pm But then it turned abruptly downward finishing with a decline of 1361 points at 87422 for its worst day in more than a month Analysts offered a com paratively simple explanation for the markets seemingly perverse behavior More often than not they noted investors make their decisions on the basis of future prospects rather than current events Analysts said that in its rally of the past month the market had evidently discounted the embargos end completely by pushing stocks up to the prices they would theoretically be worth with the embargo over Thus when the news finally arrived Monday many investors had already shown some gains in the stocks they had bought earlier in anticipation of good news on the embargo And following the Wall Street adage Buy on the rumor sell on thenews they seized upon the occasion Monday to cash in on those profits by selling out Arab oil tankers head for U S Vienna AP Most of the Arab oil producers prepared today to head tankers for the United States following their decision to lift their five month oil embargo Saudi Arabia Algeria Abu Dhabi Bahrain Egypt Kuwait and Quatar agreed Monday to lift the ban on shipments to the United States that they imposed during the October ArabIsraeli war Their action was taken in recognition of Washingtons ef forts in getting Israel to withdraw from the Suez Canal and in hopes Secretary of State Poof Gasoline lines gone Story on page 10 Henry A Kissinger would secure a similar Israeii withdrawal on the Syrian front Despite strong pressures to join in the majority decision and present a united Arab front Libya and Syria refused to en dorse resumption of exports to America i The Libyan government radio termed the lifting of the em bargo an act of treason Radio Damascus made no men tion of the announcement in Vienna Libya shipped about 10 per cent of the 19 million barrels of Arab crude oil the United States imported daily before the em bargo and presumably it will still not resume these ship ments Syrias only oil weapon is the pipeline from Saudi Arabia to the Mediterranean which crosses its territory and it was expected to continue barring USbound tankers from loading at the pipelines loading terminal Saudi Oil Minister Ahmed Zaki Yamani said tanker shipments from the Persian Gulf should begin reaching US ports in about two months But he said Algerian oil shipped from the Mediterranean will arrive much sooner Yamani said Saudi Arabia would ship at least a million barrels a day to the United States and Kuwait Algeria and other countries would send ad ditional amounts But no total figure was available While rewarding the United States the Arab minister re tained their embargo on shipments to the Netherlands and Denmark They said the two countries remain hostile to thf Arab cause Oil shipments to West Germany and Italy however were returned to full prewar volume Exports to the two countries had been cut by 15 per cent because of their alleged proIsraeli sympathies Production cuts for Japan Britain France and other West European countries had already been restored ;
