Syria and Jordan
rEL AVIV (JTA)—Syrians and
Israelis exchaged fire for more
than two hours early Sunday morn-
ing near Kibbutz Haon, in the de-
militarized zone southeast of Lake
Tiberias, after a Syrian army post
opened the altercation with ma-
chine guns. There were no casual-
tites on the Israeli side.
The altercation started at 5 a.m.
local time when, without warning,
Syrian machine guns started firing
at two tractors at work in the Is-
raeli fields. An Israeli patrol re-
turned the fire. The area is a
sensitive one where Syrian-Israeli
fighting had taken place several
times in 1964. While United Na-
tions military observers tried to
arrange a cease-fire, the Israeli
tractors continued at their work.
The UN teams succeeded in
getting an agreement from both
sides to halt their fire after two
hours and - 15 minutes. By that
time, the Israeli tractor workers
had completed the chore assigned
to them for the day.
Earlier last weekend, Israeli
and Jordanian troops exchanged
shots for several hours, after
Jordanian troops opened fire,
lightly wounding one Israeli
border policeman, near Mei Ami,
an outpost in the "Little Tri-
angle" section of- the Israeli-Jor-
After the policeman had been
injured by fire from a nearby Jor-
danian army post, reinforcements
were sent to the spot by Israel. As
the Israelis returned fire, while
the Jordanians continued to re-
tort, United Nations Military ob-
servers tried to effect a cease-fire,
which was ignored by the Jordan-
ians. Rifle and machine gun fire
continued until nightfall.
In London, the Times reported
from Amman, capital of Jordan, a
Jordanian claim that an Israeli
army unit of company strength,
supported by three tanks, had
raided the Jordanian village of
Anin. The Jordanian military
spokesman said the raid had fol-
lowed a three-hour exchange of
fire between the two sides across
the border, near the Jordanian vil-
lages of Anin and Urn Al-Rihan.
According to Jordan, the Israelis
withdrew, "leaving several dead
and wounded behind them," but
Jordan suffered no casualties.

returned to lead the New York
"Philharmonic Orchestra for the
first time since he took a sabbati-
cal last season and received praise
for the world premiere of his
"Chichester Psalms" for chorus
"The Chichester Psalms," which
he completed only recently, was
commissioned by the Chichester
Cathedral in England.
The three psalms that form the
main body of the work are 100
("Make a joyful noise unto the
Lord all ye lands"), 23 ("The Lord
Is My Shepherd") and 131 ("Lord,
Lord, my heart is not haughty").
Ideas of praise, meditation and
strife lead to the ending: "Behold
how good and how pleasant it is,
for brethren to dwell together in
unity." Texts are sung in Hebrew.
