JERUSALEM. — The United
Arab Republic Israel Mixed Ar-
mistice Commission condemned
Israel Tuesday for violating of
Egyptian air space on May 26.
The Israel delegation, which has
boycotted the commission's
meetings for the past five years,
was not present at Tuesday's
meeting.
The commission supported
the UAR complaint charging
that Israel jet fighters crossed
the frontier and engaged Egyp-
tian fighters over the Sinai des-
ert. It called upon Israel to
"desist from such warlike acts."

charged that four Egyptian
MIGs crossed into Israel and
were engaged by two Israeli
jets. One of the Egyptian planes
was seen trailing smoke as it
disappeared over the Sinai des-

Sunday by the Jewish Nation-
al Fund Council of Detroit of

memory of Boris M. Joffe.
Joffe had expressed the
wish to have his name linked
with the Williams-Hart For-
est in Israel, planted in honor
of Governor Williams and
Senator Hart. A number of
trees have been planted in
Joffe's memory and the hope
was expressed that memorials
in tribute to the Jewish Com-
munity Council leader will
take the form of tree-planting
in Israel.

findantes and was frequently
