Samuel Olsen's Renomination
Urged by Associates, Friends

Kellis Calls on Dems for M.E. Plank Action

A former Chief of Operations
of CIA, James Kellis, now a
Democratic candidate for Con-
gress in Oakland County, called
on the Democratic Party to pro-
ceed with its platform plank
on the Middle East before it
is too late.
Col. Kellis, who retired from
the Air Farce on May 21 to
run for Congress, addressed a
series of letters to key person-
alities of the Democratic Party
in which he pointed out that
now is an excellent time to pro-
ceed with a constructive plan
for the Middle East.
Kellis states that the devel-
opment of the oil sources •of

North Africa will provide an
alternate and supplementary
source of oil for Democratic
Europe. Oil producing states
of the Middle East should
come to terms with Israel, he
states. If a settlement is de-
layed, it may develop that
Europe will be receiving most
of the oil from North Africa
and this will reduce the bar-
gaining position a the Arab
States.
Kellis' plan, which was pub-
lished in the July 22 edition of
The Jewish News, envisages a
treaty between Israel and the
Arab States, recognizing pres-
ent boundaries and reducing
armaments.
Kellis who has had consider-
able experience in CIA, De-
fense and the State Depart-
ments, praised the Democratic
platform repudiating anti-Israel
Bias. He stated that most of
the personnel in the above
three agencies who are dealing
with the Middle East situation
cannot be judged impartial.
He states that the Central In-
telligence Agency's Middle East
Division is loaded with indi-
viduals with pro-Arab feelings.
Kermit Roosevelt is now out of
the Central Intelligence Agency
but there are many others in
the Middle East Division of
CIA who share Kermit Roose-
velt's views on the Middle
East.

Kellis pledges to initiate a
thorough housecleaning of that
Agency if elected to Congress.
Kellis, whose parents come
from Greece and who has visit-
ed repeatedly all countries of
the Middle East, states that the
security of Israel is vital to the
security of America, and the
welfare , of the nations of the
Middle East is equally as im-
portant to the welfare of
America.
