That statement makes no sense (thus SyntaxError).

for 1 (one) in oids, vals head_oids:

has several problems:

1 - for source variable can't be a number it has to be a name

in oids, vals head_ioids can't be for target as it is at least two and maybe 
three different variables (I'm confused because oids <comma> vals <space> 
head_oids) is a second syntax error.  You probably need to go back and review 
the Python tutorial to get the syntax of a for loop set in your mind properly.
