Javis Raps U.S. JWV Head Reports to President
for Policy on Egypt

(Continued from Page 1)
to as much as $200,000,000 a year,
"so we are in effect being asked
to finance this adventure through
food aid."
Sen. Javits said there was a
strong feeling in the Senate "that
the American people should be
fully informed of the direction of
our policy toward Egypt in light
of Nasser's recent threats before
any new United States aid is cam-
.mitted." He charged that last
year, after Congress adjourned,
the administration provided $55,-
000,000 in aid to Egypt by an "end
run" that circumvented the will of
Congress. He noted the anti-Amer-
ican statements by Nasser on the
occasion of the visit of Soviet
Premier Kosygin to Egypt and
the forthcoming visit ol R e d
Chinese leaders to Cairo.
The Senator added that "if Nas-
ser's blackmail succeeds, if we
extend economic aid which he
will use to relieve his limit e d
sources for warfare against his
neighbors and threats and propa-
ganda against the United States
and its allies, then we will have
only ourselves to blame for the
disaster to the free world which is
indicated as the inevitable result."

Kosygin for information about

The newspapers quoted well-
informed sources that secret dip-
lomatic contacts between Egypt
and Russia dealt with that issue
prior to Premier Kosygin's ar-
rival in Cairo yesterday. Israeli
sources indicated concern that
Egyptian pressures, combined with
the Soviet desire to increase its
influence in Syria, might still
further retard the recent slight

In welcoming the Soviet leader,
President Nasser lashed out at
Israel and pro-Western forces in
the Middle East. The Soviet pre-
mier, in his response, made almost
no comments on the Middle East
situation except to emphasize So-
viet-Egyptian solidarity, according
to reports here from Cairo.
I s r a e l i observers expressed
"limited satisfaction" Wednes-
day over Soviet Premier Kosy-
gin's comments on the Middle
East situation in his address
Tuesday to the Egyptian Na-
tional Assembly in Cairo.
The Soviet premier endorsed
Egypt's stand on the Yemen war
and expressed "sympathy for the
struggle to regain the legal rights
of Palestine refugees." The visit-
ing premier's only other reference
to the Middle East was a warning
about the dangers of a nuclear
arms race in the Middle East. He
said the failure of the great powers
to achieve nuclear disarmament
had "a direct bearing on safe-
guarding the s e c u r i t y of your
country and all other Arab coun-
tries" and that in a world without
nuclear disarmament "no country
can consider itself safe and
The Israeli observers agreed
that the Soviet premier avoided
an extremist anti-Israel position.
They said his references to "a
just settlement" of the Arab refu-
gee dispute and his expressed
hope that they would "regain their
legal rights" were routine Soviet
declarations which were at this
time somewhat vague and abstract.
Such statements, they noted, have
been made by the Soviets for a
long time.
The observers stressed that the
Kosygin address in Cairo was the
first open Soviet appeal in an Arab
country urging de-nuclearization of
the Middle East and viewed the
appeal. as directed mainly to the
Arab States.

JWV Commander Milton A. Waldor reported to President
Johnson at the White House on his return from Viet Nam after a
tour of 31 states implementing JWV's support of the government's
feeling on Viet Nam. Commander Waldor told the President that he
found overwhelming grass roots support throughout the country for
the President's policy. He had toured the Viet Nam battle front and
has traveled extensively since to speak and debate on Viet Nam
from coast to coast. President Johnson complimented the organization
on its policies and activities and urged that JWV continue its pro
grams in the name of neace.

Paul Eldridge calls "The Home-
coming," his newest work pub-
lished by A. S. Barnes & Co., a
novel. Actually, it is an essay.
It is a fascinating bit of writing
and in less than 110 pages he has
incorporated philosophy, an evalu-
ation of theology, comments on
Israel's development.
It is a strong and well con
nected statement in which he
describes the emergence of Israel;
the religious battles, the humani-
tarian elements in the rebirth
of a nation.
There is poetic glory in the
very opening chapter in which he
describes Shabbat in Tel Aviv, the
sabras walking arm in arm, the
haughty and the bumptious, "the
Jews who believed and those who
were free . . ."
There is a tribute to the
liberated and the liberators, to
the welcome granted by Israel
to the multitudes. "They were
welcome, to be sure, because the
mind reasoned and they had a
right, as Jews, to return to their
home, but the heart reasoned
not, and only as a man `thinketh
in his heart, so is he'."
There is the question of God

and the godless as well as the
believing and even in his treat-
ment of "The Kingdom Without
God" there emerges a power that
glorifies the homecoming.
"The Homecoming" Is a strong
work. It adds much glory to Paul
Eldridge's noteworthy career as
a writer.

Court Okays Use
of Kaiser Equipment
by Dead Sea Works

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

TEL AVIV — The Beersheba
District Court c 1 e are d the way
We dn es d ay for the Dead Sea
Works to use equipment owned by
the Kaiser Engineering Co. in con-
struction of a project at the Dead
Sea on which the American firm
halted work in a contract dispute.
The court made this possible by
withdrawing a temporary injunc-
tion the American firm had obtain-
ed to bar the Dead Sea Works from
using Kaiser equipment at the site
of the project, a potash evaporation
system at the southern part of the
Dead Sea.
The court also sustained the
argument of the Israeli firm that
Kaiser's s t o pp a g e work was a
breach of contract. Kaiser halted
work earlier this year on grounds
that engineering specifications for
dikes in the proposed system were
"impossible to attain." The Beer-
sheba court found also that the
project was "important to the
state" and that Kaiser's 17-day
notice of stoppage was not "an

argument but a threat" and that
the American firm had sufficient
time to seek arbitration. .
The court stressed, however, that
its decision should not be consider-
ed a precedent for possible future
arbitration of the dispute. The
