ISTANBUL (ZINS) — Egypt is
testing a supersonic jet engine de-
signed by Austrian and German
engineers which, according to re-
ports, is destined for "defensive
military use against Israel."
The engine, called E300, may
be ready for production in 1968.
It was designed and being built
at a closely guarded aircraft fac-
tory south of Cairo.
The Egyptian aircraft program
is headed by Ferdinand Brander,
a 61-year-old Austrian engineer,
who helped to develop engines for
Germany's Junker bombers during
World War II.

LATE MOSHE SHARETT
A young friend and admirer of
the late Moshe Sharett, Menachem
Z. Rosensaft, paid a glowing trib-
ute to the Israeli statesman who
was one of the chief Zionist leaders
and among the architects of the
State of Israel.
In "Moshe Sharett — Statesman
of Israel," published by Shengold
(45 W. 45th, NY36), the young man
offers his personal acclaim for Mr.
Sharett's services to his people, re-
calls his own and his father's re-
lationships with the former Prime
Minister and Foreign Minister of
Israel, and draws upon the basic
records to show the genius of the
man he honors.
Young Rosensaft, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Josef Rosensaft, who sur-
vived the Nazi holocaust to be-
come prime movers in efforts to
provide havens for the victims of
Nazism, was born in Bergen-Belsen
after the liberation. He was edu-
cated in Switzerland and the United
States. He lived in Israel and, like
his father, befriended Mr. Sharett.
This 64-page book contains an
account of Mr. Sharett's life. It
contains many historic photo-
graphs of the Israeli leader with
noted personalities, and the repro-
ductions include copies of letters
