Egyptian minister declares
By The Associated Press
THREE MAJOR RAILROADS were picketed yesterday as a
court order barring a strike filtered down to union members.
Picketing of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, the Chesapeake and
Ohio Railway and the Southern Pacific ended after several hours.
Conditions generally had returned to normal by yesterday after-
Union leaders apparently had no plans to defy the federal in-
junction, which delays a strike for at least eight days.
Assistant Secretary of Labor *. J. Usery moved to resume ne-
gotiations as soon as possible to take advantage of the strike delay.
Talks are planned for today.
SOUTH VIETNAMESE FORCES withdrew yesterday from
two mountaintop bases near the Laotian border.
South Vietnamese troops were lifted by helicopter from Barnett
and Fire Base O'Reilly.
Although both bases and nearby positions have been under North
Vietnamese shelling and ground attacks, South Vietnamese com-
manders said the two bases were being evacuated because of the ap-
proaching monsoon season.
A HIJACKER was critically wounded by a fellow passenger
yesterday after a tense hour on a San Francisco airport runway.
The hijacker, identified as Donald Irwin of Reseda, Calif., said
he wanted to take a Trans World Airlines 70l7 jetliner to North Korea.
He was shot by Robert D. De Nisco, a Brink's Inc. guard escorting
a shipment of negotiable securities on the same flight.
De Nisco shot the hijacker, after conferring with the pilot of
the plane and airport officials.
Irwin had been recently released from a mental hospital.
Irwin later was charged by the U.S. attorney with air piracy,
which carries a penalty of 20 years to death.
The flight was originally scheduled to go from New York to San
Francisco, with stops in Chicago and Los Angeles, where Irwin got on.

FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS recom -
mended yesterday that mercury used as a preservative in some
cosmetics should be replaced with less toxic 'substances.
There are as yet no reported cases of mercury poisoning linked"
to cosmetics. However, the symptoms are hard to diagnose.
The poison is capable of doing particular damage to the brain
and central nervous system.
The FDA was prompted to look for mercury in cosmetics after:
findings earlier this year that it was responsible for environmental:
Officials estimate that about 40 out of several thousand cosmetic
products use mercury compounds to prevent the growth of bacteria.
SENATE MAJORITY LEADER Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.) l
acted yesterday to cut off debate on a constitutional amendment1
dealing" with elections.
Mansfield's petition will be voted on tomorrow, bringing a crucial1
test to the amendment to provide for election of the President by di-j
rect poplular vote.
Mansfield acted after Sen. Sam J. Ervin, D-N.C., objected to a
series of unanimous consent requests to limit debate. The requestsj
came from Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., chief Senate sponsor of the
direction election plan.
A group of southern senators earlier organized for a fight against
the amendment, eliminating any chance of agreement for a Senate
vote this week.
The House has approved the amendment.

tinue observing the temporary cease-fire as long as Israel
Foreign Minister Mahmoud Riad told fa news conference
the Egyptian decision came because the United States had
failed to act as an impartial mediator and was supporting
what he termed "Israeli aggression."

In response to the Egyptian an-

it will be successful."
The United States is "working
along this line," presidential press
secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said.
Riad conceded the cease-fire
was an outgrowth of the Amer-
ican initiative but said Egypt
would observe it in order to aid

the other side did likewise.

Arab guerrillas laid dowi their
terms for freeing Israeli and
American hijack hostages yester-
day and warned Western govern-
ments they "cannot wait forever"
for their demands to be met.
The statement coincided with
a disclosure that the guerrillas
may have found a fortune on one
of the planes hijacked last week.
In Zurich, a freed stewardess
from the Swissair jetliner blown
up by the guerrillas said the Arabs
took from the plane $690,000 in
currency being ,sent from Swiss
banks to New York.
The Popular Front, which ear-
lier demanded Britain free hi-
packer Leila Khaled, added ano-
ther requirement for London that
the body of her Oompanlon, Pat-
riek Joseph Auguello, killed in
an abortive hijack attempt be re-
Anguello, identified by British
authorities - as a 27-year-old
American whose parents live in
Nicaragua, was slain by Israeli se-
curity agents who-prevented th e
seizure of the El Al plane Sept. 6.
Kanafani also reiterated a de-
mand that West Germany free
three Arab terrorists held in Mun-
ich and that Switzerland release
three others jailed in Zurich.

The agency, whose functions
would be handed to nevw institu-
tions, has come under increasingly
hostile criticism recently for its al-
leged involvement in the political
affairs of the countries it serves.
The President gave no over-all
figures for future U.S. aid levels in
his blueprint for the 1670s. But he
made plain he wants Congress to
reverse its past practice of cutting
ever more deeply into the polit-
ically unpopular assistance.
His six-point reform, he said,
"would turn over assistance pro-
grams into a far more successful
investment in the future of man-
The President said U.S. aid
should be grouped into three dif-
ferent parts-security assistance,
humanitarian assistance and econ-
omic assistance - and handled
under separate organizations to
"overcome the confusion inherent
in our present approach" of lump-
ing all together.
