coming from the sub, were picked
up on Cyprus over the weekend.
The first signal was heard by
Famagusta radio on Friday. Clearer
signals were picked up Saturday
by Nicosia radio which deciphered
the message as "SOS—submiss,"
the international code for a sub-
marine in distress. But attempts
to call the Dakar on its interna-
tional wireless code designation-
4XDZ—were futile.

Dakar's Searchers Press On as Hope Wanes

Navy offices in Haifa and other
cities, asking for news but were
told only that, while the Dakar
was. missing, there was still some
hope for its recovery.

Adm. Harel said the air-sea
search was now centered on the
waters between Famagusta and
the Lebanese coast, the area in-
dicated by the direction of the
radio signals received on Cyp-
rus. But Israeli naval comman-
ders doubt that the Dakar would
be in that region, as it is far
off course.

The reports of radio signals,
picked up by merchant and naval
craft as well as by the Cypriot
shore stations, sparked a wave of
optimism in Israel Monday. The
signals were said to be of the
same frequency as those that
would emanate from the Dakar's
radio indicator buoy.
Newspapers in London speculat-
ed on the coincidental loss of the
French submarine Minerva which
went missing Sunday off Toulon
in the Western Mediterranean. The
Times saw nothing beyond a "cruel
coincidence" in the loss of the two
undersea craft. The Daily Mail
noted that NATO naval chiefs were
"puzzled" by the disappearance of
two submarines in the Mediter-
ranean within three days of each
other. But naval officials empha-
sized that they had "no solid evi-
dence" to link the disappearances
with the Soviet fleet that has been
operating in the Mediterranean in
increasing strength since last June.
(Early Monday, Israel was swept
by a rumor that the Dakar was
entering Haifa harbor under its
own power. There were reports
that signals had been intercepted
which might have been emitted
from the marker buoys released
by submarines in distress, but the
Jerusalem Radio said no signals
had been received which could
have come from the craft.)
Two British Argosy planes
and a photo reconnaisance Can-
berra-type plane are participat-

ing in the search from the RAF
base on Cyprus. They were join-
ed by two Coastal Command
Shackleton planes from Malta.
Four vessels of the U.S. Sixth
Fleet along with British, Turkish
and Greek warships and 11 Is-
raeli vessels criss-crossed the
seas in the area but turned up
no sign of the missing sub-
marine.

It was learned from Cairo Mon-
day that Egyptian authorities had
warned U.S. and British naval air-
craft conducting a search for the
Dakar to keep out of Arab terri-
torial waters.
In Jerusalem, psalms and pray-
ers were recited at a conclave of
Orthodox scholars and youths for
the safety of crewmen. The occa-
sion was the festivity marking
completion of the sixth reading of
the Talmud, a tradition of study
established by the world assembly
of the Agudat Israel in 1923.
News of the search came on
Saturday morning. Early risers who
are habitual radio listeners spread
it among synagogue-goers. There
were virtual work stoppages
throughout Israel Sunday, every
hour when Israelis tuned in their
radios for news bulletins. Every
detail of the far-ranging search
was closely followed. If the loss is

New JNF Forests
BEERSHEBA — Ten groves of
trees will be planted by the JNF
this year along the eastern side of
the Arava road in order to hedge
it off from the Jordanian border.
In the future, the fund will set up
in these groves picnic spots so that
travellers to and from Eilat will
be able to rest in the shade.
