phal, vice chairman of the society.
Many other forms of aid from
West Germany have been given to

Huge Quantities of Weapons

Found by Israelis
in Secret Syrian Depots
officials reported that the southern
slopes of the Mount Hermon in oc-
cupied Syrian territory were found
to contain secret arms and muni-
tions stores. The hidden munitions
cache appeared to contain huge
quantities of various types of wea-
pons and ammunition.
Many Arab inhabitants of the
area who fled during the hostili-
ties on the final day of the war
last week were returning to their
homes where, as in Kuneitra,
water, electricity and food supplies
had been restored to normal by
Israeli military officials. Many
hungry Syrian soldiers were sur-
rendering to Israelis.
Special squads of the Israeli en-
gineering corps were assigned to
the task of salvaging the many
tanks, artillery pieces and other
Syrian armored pieces abandoned
by the Syrians in their retreat.
Many Russian-built T-34 tanks
were captured intact, some with
their engines still running. They
were seized before they could be
ordered into action.
Israeli officials disclosed that
they had found large quantities
of Chinese-made weapons buried
in orange groves in the Gaza Strip.
The arms included bazookas. ma-
chine guns and anti-tank rifles.
Israel's Conquest Poses
Serious New Economic
Problems for Govertment
TEL AVIV (JTA) — The con-
quest of al! the Jordanian-held ter-
ritory west of the Jordan and of
the Gaza Stvip posed serious new
economic problems for Israel.
Neither the former Jordanian
areas nor the barren Gaza Strip
are economically viable entities.
There are about 400,000 inhabi-
tants in the narrow Gaza Strip.
There is no industry there and the
only commercial crop is a low-
grade citrus which cannot he ex-
ported to Europe and previously
found its only market in Egypt.
The West Bank area has an Arab
population of about a million. It
is an agricultural area with no
surpluses for export and little in-
dustry. A continued interruption
with the East Bank—Jordan pro-
per—might cause further unem-
ployment. The only possible sources
of income are the new tourist re-
gions such as Bethlehem and the
Old City of Jerusalem where the
Jewish holy places are now open
to Jewish tourists.

There are estimates here today that
Israel would have to allocate be-
tween $15-20.000,000 a year for
the new territories.

eign ministers in Luxemburg last
