Two Anti-Israel Aides' Mission to Mid-East Viewed With Apprehension

(Continued from Page 1)
In a television interview in Lon-
don, Sir Dingle indicated that
Nasser wanted a return to the 1949
armistice status — a condition al-
ready rejected in the United Na-
tions by Israel's Foreign Minister
Abba Eban.
(Sir Harold arrived in the Egyp-
tian capital Sunday night for talks
with the Nasser government as the
personal envoy of Foreign Secre-
tary George Brown. Sir Harold told
newsmen in Cairo that Britain
wants to resume relations with
Egypt "as fast as possible in all
spheres—diplomatic, cultural and
(It also was announced that Yugo-
slavian Foreign Minister Marco
Nikezic was coming hare as the
representative of Marshall Tito to
discuss the Middle East situation
with Brown. A dispatch from Bel-
grade quoted President Tito as
telling India's Premier Indira
Gandhi that action toward settle-
ment of the Middle East crisis de-
pends on the great powers, "espe-
cially on those which, by their
attitude, are enabling Israel openly
to make territorial claims and take
a position more and more rigid.")

Sir Dingle's views, however, are
being taken with a large grain of
salt by government circles here,

Yom Kippur Prayers Halted by Arab Attack
on Post; Fasting Soldiers Score Hits

soldiers, deep in prayer at a de-
fense post in the Beisan Valley,
rushed to their guns Saturday
when their Yom Kippur services
were interrupted by tank and ar-
tillery fire from across the Jordan
River. One soldier was injured in
the heavy exchahge of fire that fol-
lowed. According to an Army
spokesman, Israeli tanks scored di-
rect hits on the Jordanian police
station at Sheikh Hossein, where
the attack originated. A later at-
tack from Sheikh Mouhamed vil-
lage was also silenced by Israeli

British actions and statements in
the UN were motivated by oil
interests and declared Israel found
it painful to observe that the spirit
of the late Foreign Secretary Er-
nest Bevin, who fought Israeli
statehood, had been "revived in a
labor government foreign office in
1967." He reiterated that Israel
would not accept a revival of the
1959 mixed armistice agreements
with Egypt, Jordan and Syria.
Israel's position is that the agree-
ments were made null and void by
the Six-Day June War.
He warned Jordan to take ac-
tion to end infiltration into
Israeli - occupied territories by
marauders and hinted that Israel
woulid act to halt the guerillas
even if they crossed the Jordan
River back into Jordan after
raids against Israeli targets.
The premier also expressed the
hope that Israel's labor parties
would achieve a much discussed
merger "in one form or another."
