Egyptian Rearmament Alarms Israel

(Continued from Page 1)
sis on a current review by the
Administration of American aid
to Egypt and reported that the
Administration feels some as-
pects of the Nasser regime were
"not all unfavorable."
The Post said the wisdom of
the U.S. aid program benefiting
Nasser was being questioned be-
cause of Nasser's "open partici-
pation in the revolt in Yemen."
According to the Post, "the
Israelis fear the success of the
Nasser-assisted Yemeni military
group in pushing out Yemen's
antiquated Imamate may encour-
age Nasser in other foreign ad-
ventures in the Middle East."
To justify its faith in Nasser,
the Post said, the Administra-
tion has cited Nasser's "strict
silence" when the United States
announced , sale of Hawk missiles
to Israel; re-establishment of
links with the West through af-
filiation with the General Agree-
ment of Tariffs and Trade; Nas-
ser's Congo policy; the placement
by Nasser of the Israel issue in
the "ice box"; his role on Soviet
nuclear policy, and his "mod-
erate" stand in the Cuban con-
troversy last fall.
"All of these factors are said
to convince Administration offi-
cials that Nasser, despite his
penchant for interfering in the
internal affairs of his Arab
neighbors, still comes out on the
plus side in permitting room for
reasonably friendly relations
with the free world," the Post

on the Arab refugee question
would have several advantages,"
he asserted. "There would be
some technical cooperation be-

rael would obtain a sort of de
facto recognition by the Arabs;
and a category of refugees would
be created who have chosen not
to return to Israel and therefore
would be eligible for resettle-
ment in the Arab countries."

"University administrations,
without exception, make ex-

Touching on the problems of
growth, the report said that the

operations of the national of-

Hillel budget had grown at the
rate of $112,000 a year.

The report said that a study
of attendance at services on
campuses during the past High
Holy Days revealed a larger at-

cited an attendance at the Penn-

"At Ohio State University,
concurrent services were con-

other traditional, not only to
meet the specific needs of
students of different denomi-
national backgrounds b u t
also to provide additional
seating space for the large
number of students joining
in worship," the report added.
"Three concurrent services
were conducted at Harvard-
Radcliffe in the Orthodox,
Conservative and Reform tra-
ditions, with more than 1,400
students in attendance."
Conceding that attendance at
such services was "no indication
of the real intensity of Jewish
identification," the report con-
tended that increased student
attendance was nevertheless
significant "because it runs
counter to our experience on
