Hilmi chose Israel, he said,
because he had heard he would
get fair treatment. During his
six months here he cooperated
with Israel authorities. At his
own. request he was sent to
South America, where he had a
job waiting for him.
At next report, only re_cently,
he was in Cairo. Egyptian intelli-
gence agents had picked up his
trail in Buenos Aires.
Hilmi's "return" has not been
mentioned in Cairo's Arabic news-
cast. "There are a good many pos-

port the Post. "One may be that
Hilmi has not yet returned to
Cairo, or that he never will.
"The Egyptian Air Force per-
