Pierce joins race
Dr. Edward Pierce, founder of the Summit Medical
Center in the city's Model Cities district, today announc-
ed his candidacy for Congress in this summer's Second
District Democratic primary. "As a doctor, most of
whose patients are working people, black and white, I
have the satisfaction of helping thousands of families
who have been shortchanged by our society," Pierce
said. "But I have begun to realize that these people-
and to a less dramatic degree all of us-suffer from the
deep-seated social ills of militarism, racism, sexism and
outworn economic philosophy. This realization has mo-
tivated me to run for Congress."
Another candidate,
Still another politician tossed his hat in to the ring
yesterday. Gerald Faye, a political science professor
at Oakland Community 'College, announced hi candidacy
for the Democratic nomination for Ann Arbor's state
senate seat. The post is currently occupied by Republi-
can Gilbert Bursley.

Mideast fighting
Israel and Syria battled for more than six hours across
the Golan Heights yesterday. Israel said a Syrian wo-
man was killed and two Israeli soldiers were wounded.
About 3,000 Syrian villagers have refused to evacuate
the wedge along the Golan captured by Israel in the
October war. On the Egyptian-Israeli front, United Na-
tions Emergency Forces were investigating alleged vio-
lations by Egypt of the two-month-old disengagement of

artillery pieces near the Suez Canal in violation of limits
set in the pact.
Solzhenitsyn family

who was expelled Feb. 13 after weeks of official attacks
on his book about Stalinist labor camps, "Gulag Archi-
pelago." He has been staying with his lawyer, Fritz
Heeb, in Zurich.

Queen surrounded
A massive security guard described by one policeman
as a "ring of steel" was thrown around Britain's royal
family yesterday in the wake of anattempt to kidnap
Princess Anne. But the closest any of them came to
danger was when an embarrassed Anne fell from her
horse and got spattered with mud -at Cirencester Park
where she competed in the Amberley horse trials. Para-
troopers, detectives and army marksmen surrounded
Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, as
their plaxie landed in London after a state visit to Indo-

CAMP DAVID, Md. R) - The White House indicated yes-
terday it will not consider surrendering 42 taped conversations .> aaM
sought for the House impeachment injury until the Judiciary
Committee defines its charges against President Nixon and
specifies "what materials are wanted and why."
Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler issued a formal statement
denying a, published report that the White House would turn
over tapes of the 42 presidential conversations next week.
"We continue to feel it is essential that the committee first define
the charges and be specific on what materials are wanted and why."
ZIEGLER ALSO assailed a report in the Los Angeles. Times, attri-
buted to congressional and other sources, that Nixon's taped conversa-
tion with former White House counsel John Dean clearly showed that
the President did not disapprove of the payment of hush money to
Watergate defendants.
The Times said yesterday that Nixon had decided to turn over the
tapes after Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott warned the Presi-
dent's Watergate attorney; James St. Clair, that the President "would
be impeached in the House" if he defied the House committee.
A spokesman for Scott late yesterday confirmed that the senator
had warned St. Clair of the possibility of impeachment. The three other
senators present at the meetings were identified as Wallace Bennett (R- cott
Utah), Robert Griffin (R-Mich.), and Bill Brock (R-Tenn.)
The spokesman said, however,
that Scott was not the source which N i in

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Sec-
retary of State Henry Kissinger

with renewed evidence of U. S.
good faith in negotiating with Rus-

The Nixon Administration, faced
with resistance in Congress to its
policy of granting economic aid to
the Soviet Union, resumed export-
import bank loans to Moscow Fri-
The loans include $44 million that
will be used to help build an inter-
national trade center in Moscow

and the shipment of machinery for
an engine works, a canal and a
valve-making plant.
THE Congressional resistance
has largely been the result of Jew-
ish pressure on the administration
to force Russia to liberalize its
emigration policies.
Kissinger has been asked by
Jewish groups here to give Soviet
officials a list of 1,600 Soviet Jews
who have been repeatedly denied
emigration visas.
The list is similar to one Presi-

Kissinger, who is Jewish, told th

personal anguish for him, but h
insisted that it should not be a

Gonzalez criticized the public
