LONDON (JTA)—The United
States and Britain will intervene
with military action to halt any
war that may break out between
Israel and an Arab country, as a
result of the rapid growth in the
hands of Egypt's President Gam-
al Abdel Nasser, the Daily Ex-
press reported in a front-page
As detailed by the newspaper,
the plans envisage the use of the
United States Sixth Fleet, now
in the Mediterranean, and the
employment of British forces
from bases in Cyprus and Aden,
to interpose themselves between
the Arabs and Israelis. The An-
glo-American forces, according
to the paper, would form be-
tween the opposing sides until
an "effective barrier" could be
erected by the United Nations.
The Daily Express said the plans
for British-American interven-
tion were drawn up, due to the
dangerous situation in Jordan.
Dispatches from Cairo say
that Egyptian press "can hardly
contain its pleasures" ih report-
ing the current pro - Nasser
demonstrations in Jordan. The
influential Cairo newspaper "Al
Gumhouria" was reported as
declaring today: "We hardly
blame the Palestinians who fired
the shots (in Jordan). For only
by bullets will Palestine be lib-
erated. The demonstrators wan-
ted to show their pleasure at the
establishment of the Arab Fed-
eration • (of Egypt, Iraq and
Syria), which is a first step
toward the elimination of Israel

goals was signed by President

others from the three coun-
tries after 10 days of negotia-



U.S. Stresses
Warning Against
Attack on Israel

lips Talbot, Assistant Secretary
of State for Near Eastern Af-
fairs, told a foreign policy con-
ference of editors and broad-
casters that the United States has
made clear that if Israel should
be attacked by the Arab states,
it would be a matter of serious
concern to this country and to
other nations.
(At a luncheon of UN corres-
pondents in New Y4Tk, UAR
Ambassador Mahoud Riad
charged that Israel was building
massive atomic reactive weapons.
Israel's Ambassador Comay,
asked for comment on the
charge, said the 'building of the
reactor in the Negev was no
secret and that it was not de-
signed for military purposes).
In response to a question about
chances of reconciliation in the
Arab attitude toward Israel, Tal-
bot said the Arab states were not
reconciled to an independent Is-
rael. He said "our hope is that
gradually the number of states
recognizing Israel will grow and

search is now advanced to the
stage that Egypt plans to orbit
a weather satellite before the
end of this year with the aid of
German scientists. The satellite

rocket burning a new liquid fuel

mans. The rocket reportedly has

The three Arab countries ap-
proved the formation of the new
federated United Arab Republic
by signing agreements for its
constitution and national char-
ter. The declaration announcing
the signing said the merger of
the three states was aimed at
combating "Zionism and imper-
ialism". The new federation will
be voted on by citizens of all
three countries in a plebiscite
within five months.
Eliminate check on
Egypt from Aid Bill
Administration's new Foreign
Aid bill,. as requested by the
President and introduced in the
Senate by Chairman J. W. Ful-
bright, of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, would de-
lete clauses denouncing religious
bias, boycotts, and blockades as
practiced by the Arab states. It
would also eliminate expressions
in the present law against aiding
countries like the United Arab
Republic, which use their own
funds to but Soviet arms.

These clauses were voted last
year by Congress to furnish
guidelines to Congressional
thinking. They were not manda-
tory parts of the law, because
they were subject to the dis-
cretion of the Executive Depart-
ment. The State Department
opposed the clauses as offensive
to the Arabs, and failed to
implement them.
The Administration b i 11
would delete the portion of the
current Act for International
Development, which states:
"The Congress further declares
that any distinction made by
foreign nations between Amer-
ican citizens because of race,
color, or religion in the grant-
ing of, or the exercise of, per-
sonal or other rights available
to American citizens is repug-
nant to our principles."
Also eliminated would be the
clause, aimed at the United Arab
Republic, stating: "It is the
sense of Congress that, in the
administration of these funds,
great attention and consideration
should be given to those coun-

N.Y. Board of Education Won't Rent
School to Jewish Religious Group

NEW YORK, (JTA)—A dis-
pute over whether unused class-
rooms in public schools could
be rented to a religious day
school was resolved with a New
York State Education Depart-
ment ruling that the New York
Board of Education had no right
to rent such facilities.
The question involved a re-
quest by the Beth Jacob Schools,
an Orthodox Jewish institution,
to rent six classrooms in a pub-
lic school in Brooklyn. Approval
would have led to attendance
by the public and religious
school pupils in different class-
rooms in the same building. The

plan was protested by the Amer-
ican Jewish Congress on grounds
that it would breach the state
constitutional ban on use of
public property or money for
denominational schools.
The ruling, by Dr. Charles A.
Brind, counsel for the State
Education Department, made no
reference to the religious issue.
He said a school board was not
in the real estate business, and
could not rent out its space. He
added that it would be unwise
and unsound to mingle public
and parochial school pupils in
a public school building, and
that all kinds of problems would
