EGYPTIAN DIPLOMATS in Washington strongly indicated
yesterday that the government of President Anwar Sadat might
not insist that Egyptian troops cross the Suez Canal if Israel
made a firm commitment to withdraw to the prewar borders
within six months.
The diplomats, who cannot be identified, also said that "it would
not be impossible" to have face-to-face negotiations with the Israelis
if a "clear commitment" to withdraw were received.
The two points appeared to be concessions to the Israelis. Prime
Minister Golda Meir of Israel has repeatedly said in unmistakable
terms that no Egyptian soldiers could cross the canal if Israel with-
drew from the prime defense line in accordance with the U.S. pro-
posal to reopen the waterway.
Israel also maintains that only direct negotiations with the
Arabs would produce real peace in the area.
MILLIONS OF WORKERS in Britain may be laid off as a
result of a nationwide coal miners' strike that has forced sever;
power cutbacks.
Facing a dwindling supply of coal, big industrial plants will
be prohibited from using electricity on Sundays and three other days
of the week, producing the speculation of massive layoffs.1
The government announced that use of electricity to heat offices,
shops, public halls, restaurants, theaters, and other public recreation
premises is banned as of today.
FOURTEEN BLACKS were indicted by a Baton Rouge, La.I
grand jury on charges of murdering two sheriff's deputies and
inciting riot, in connection with a Jan. 10 police-Black Muslim
confrontation that left five dead.
The East Baton Rouge panel also indicted a fifteenth on charges
of inciting to riot. The indictments were handed down Thursday
after a two week probe, which resumes today.
No indictments were returned in connection with the beating
of a Baton Rouge television newsman, who is in a coma at a Baton
Rouge hospital with brain injuries. The newsman was attacked by
a group of blacks minutes before the shooting broke out.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY an-
nounced yesterday that it is softening its proposed antipollution
limits on trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles and is delaying
their application for one year until 1974.
The agency will probably place a single limit on the total
quantity of hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions, rather than
setting separate limits on each, as originally proposed last October.
The agency was apparently bowing to auto industry complaints
that it would be very difficult to meet separate standards within the
next few years.
THE UNITED STATES is withdrawing its support for medi-
cal programs for the Vietnamese at a time when the health situ-
ation is deteriorating rapidly, complained a group of foreign
civilian doctors and nurses working in Vietnam.
In an open letter to President Nixon and the American Medical
Association yesterday, the twenty-five signers said both the U.S.
government and the AMA bear "major responsibility for the intol-
erable health conditions now prevalent in Cambodia, Laos, and South
Vietnam."
The group said the withdrawal of U.S. medical aid is aggravat-
ing already serious staff shortages in provincial hospitals and
means a sharp reduction in the number of Vietnamese civilians
treated in U.S. military facilities.

agree on trade

WASHINGTON (P) - The United States and the Common Market
announced agreement yesterday to conduct global negotiations in 1973
aimed at lowering trade barriers.
The negotiations would be directed toward improving the stand-
ards of living of the people of the world, the announcement said, by
giving special attention to the trade problems of poor countries.
At the same time, they announced details of the short term con-
cessions made by he Common Market to help the United States export
grain, oranges, grapefruit and tobacco.
The accords were the result of negotiations by William D. Eberle,
President Nixon's trade envoy, with representatives of the Common
Market. The U.S. administration insisted on them before introducing its

WASHINGTON () - A new
government report has suggested
that marijuana might be use-
ful in medical treatment, of
glaucoma, a hardening of the
eyeballs that often leads to
blindness.
The National Institute of Men-
tal Health, in a report to Con-
gress released yesterday, added
that marijuana smoking does not
appear to lead to crime, hard
drug use, birth defects, or
chronic psychosis, except in rare
instances among unstable users.
"With the greatly expanded re-
search effort into marijuana
and related synthetics," the re-
port said, "there is' a strong
possibility thathcannabis deriva-
tives, very possibly in chemi-
cally modified form, will once
again achieve medical accept-
ance in the treatment of a va-
riety of conditions."
The report cited a 1971 study
by R. S. Hepler and I. M. Frank
in the Journal of the American
Medical Association in which
most of the 11 marijuana smok-

ing subjects had up to a 25
per cent decrease in interocular
eye pressure.
Although more research will be
necessary, the institute said, the
experiment "holds forth t h e
promise that marijuana or some
derivative may be useful in
treatment of glaucoma.
Dr. Bertram S. Brown, direct-
or of the institute, told report-
ers, however, "I do not think
the current state of scientific
opinion justifies legalization at
this point," citing unanswered
questions regarding possible
brain damage in chronic users.
Brown did say, though, that he
supported "decriminalization"
of marijuana penalties, perhaps
to just "token penalties" such
as leitters of reprimand.
The institute's report pointed
out the possible dangers of driv-
ing while stoned. It related evi-
dence that pot-smoking motor-
ists are likely to be slower in
braking and recovering from
glare, and called for more re-
search in this area.

The comprehensive review of in-'
ternational economic relations next
year is expected to cover "all
elements of trade, including mea-
sures which impede or distort ag-
ricultural, raw material and in-
dustrial trade," the announcement
said.
The two sides stated they would
give special attention to the prob-
lems of the poorer countries, with
the aim of "expansion and e v e r
greater liberalization of w o r I d
trade and improvement of the liv-
ing of the people of the world."
The announced negotiations next
year are expected to focus on what
the United States regards as the
two most important obstacles to
free trade.
One is the wide variety of non-
tariff measures protecting t h e
industries of the Common Market
countries. The United States claims
there are hundreds of such ob-
stacles, far more important than
tariffs.
The second is protection for
farmers of the Common Market,
especially in terms of its price
support systems.
Meanwhile, France and Germany
have agreed to renew efforts to
brihg about a European economic
and monetary union.

Dock leaders
meet today
to set vote
SAN FRANCISCO (-) - T h e
110-member West Coast I on g-
shoremen's union caucus will meet
here today to decide its recom-
mendations on the tentative agree-
ment reached Tuesday for end-
ing the 126-day dock strike.
Despite President Nixon's new
authority to order an immediate
strike halt, granted to him Wed-
nesday by Congress, there were in-
dications the caucus will not call
the 13,000 strikers back to wort
before a membership ratification
vote is held.
The caucus, consisting of del&
gates from union locals in all 24
strike-closed Pacific ports, will set
the date for the ratification bal-
lot. Balloting could take a week
or more.
Harry Bridges, 70-year-old In-
ternational Longshoremen's and
Warehousemen's Union president,
has said the union's negotiating
committeewill recommend ap-
proval of the agreement reached
with the employer Pacific Mari-
time Association.
President Nixon has said he will
delay signing the special strike-
ending bill until after the union
has had an opportunity to ratify.
The law empowers the President
to end the strike immediately with
an agreement to be written under
compulsory arbitration. Future
strike actions would be barred for
18 months.
