WASHINGTON—In a n a t-
tempt to pacify Egypt's ever-
hostile and brooding Colonel
Gamal Abdel Nasser, Phillips
Talbot, U. S. Assistant Secre-
tary of State for the Near East
and Southeast Asia, was sent to
While Talbot carried a mes-
sage to Colonel Nasser from
President Johnson, the initia-
tive for the trip obviously came
from the State Department.
From Cairo has been coming
pleas, as well as words of euph-
oria, uttered by American Am-
bassador John S. Badeau, who
had been trying hard to con-
vince the State Department that
Nasser was really a "nice guy,"
and that it was truly unfortun-
ate that the Arab leader was
being rewarded with unpleasant
United States speeches.
Actually, in light of the out-
come of last January's 13-state
Cairo summit conference, Nas-
ser had recently seemed like
much more of a "nice guy" than
the United States had been
prone to give him credit for
being. But, after all, he could
hardly have begun to make true
his aggression threats to Israel
until he had succeeded in ob-
taining Arab unity.
However, soon after the Cairo
summit had ended, Alexis John-
son, Deputy Assistant Secretary
of State, made his Arab-shaking
speech to let it be known the
U.S. in the interests of peace,
would tolerate neither Arab-
Arab aggression nor that of
Arab states against Israel — es-
sentially a reiteration of a well-
known U. S. position. Interest-
ingly, Johnson had been invit-
ed to talk by a private pro-
Arab group; and Arab diplo-
mats later commented privately
that the speech had nothing in
it. The general Arab outcry had
mererly been made because the
Johnson's speech immediately
followed t h e Cairo summit
Which had threatened action
against Israel's Jordan River ir-
Then, in New York, at the
Weizmann Institute dinner,
President Lyndon Johnson,
understanding the Jordan irri-
gation problems, issued an offer
to Israel for U. S. cooperation in
a desalination project. The
President's speech also stressed
American willingness for simi-
lar cooperation with all countr-
ies. The Arabs apparently turn-
ed a deaf ear to this offer and
continued with a barrage of
verbal attacks against the John-
son Administration as being
pro-Israel to the Arabs' detri-
Nasser began to thunder that
war with Israel was "inevit-
able." He also called for the
liquidation of American and
British Air Force bases in
Libya. This last incident, though
not of prime importance, cer-
tainly appears to be one of the
reason for Talbot's recent trip.
But the present Egyptian cry-
ing actually has also served as
a cover-up for Nasser's refusal
to withdraw his own forces
from Yemen. UN Secretary-
General U Thant had pointed
out in his last report that not

only did Nasser not withdraw
any of his troops (as he had
promised the United States a
year ago), but in the last two
months Egyptian forces in Ye-
men were actually increased by
Democratic Senator Ernest
Gruening of Alaska urged Pres-
ident Johnson to "ascertain all
the facts necessary . . . to make
the determination called for by
the anti-aggressor amendment
(to the Foreign Aid Act) with
respect to Egypt."
In a major Senate speech,
Sen. Gruening noted "Nasser's
constant threats against the very
existence of Israel and her
arms build up." The Alaskan
Senator also disclosed that until
the end of 1963 Egypt had re-
ceived $807,000,000 in U. S.
foreign assistance, diverting aid
to engage in aggression against
her neighbors; the money was
to have been used for improv-
ing the Egyptian economy.
Asked Senator Gruening to-
ward the end of his Senate-ap-
plauded speech, "How long will
the U. S. continue to finance
Nasser's trouble-making in the
Middle East? How long will the
U.S. accept the excuses of Nas-

testations of neutrality when his
actions really play the Commun-
Many Washington observers
now realize that Nasser's apolo-
gists in both Washington and
Cario have so far had a rela-
ttively easy job of explaining

Egypt's actions in such remote
places as Yemen. But now that

ectly for the cancelation of Am-
erican military base agreements
in other countries, he has step-
