Hussein Seen in Control of Situation,
Gets U.S. Arms; GOP Charges Refuted

Department officials said that
United States arms will be shipped
to Jordan as agreed because the
U.S. government evaluation is that
King Hussein remains in control
and is not the captive of the El
Fatah terrorist movement as re-
ported in some dispatches from
Amman. Authorities indicated that
El Fatah terrorists have become
heroes in the eyes of many Jor-
danians and they conceded that it
is more difficult for Hussein now
to control their actions.
Shipment of U.S. arms is still
seen here as a move to strengthen
the Hussein regime, promote stab-
ility, and prevent a deterioration
of the situation on the East Bank
of the Jordan River. U.S. officials

cease-fire line in the nature of

The Department of Agriculture
announced that Jordan will be sup-

wheat or equivalent flour under
the Food for Peace program. The
value of the food is $2,100,000. Re-
payment will be in dollars under
long-term credit terms.

The committee said that follow-
ing the sales agreement on a gov-
ernment-to-government level, Is-
rael paid the agreed price to the
Naval Air Systems Command, the
government agency charged with
obtaining a contract from the
Douglas Company, manufacturer

of the Skyhawk. 4ccording to the
committee, the Naval Air Systems
Command nevertheless spent con-
siderable time trying unsuccess-
fully to force Douglas to sell the
government the planes "at an
especially low cost" for resale to
Israel at a profit. Israel had been
charged a premium price for the

the reissuance of "The River Jor-
dan" by Dr. ► elson Glueck.

tion of Dr. Glueck's account of his

which gave so much to Western
Using the Jordan as the spine
of his book, Dr. Glueck takes the
reader on a tour of the lands sur-
rounding one of the shortest, but
most important rivers of the world.
The Jordan nourished Palestine
and the Wilderness of Judea,
Moab, Ammon and Edom, and as
the reader moves south along the
river he encounters nearly all of
the major characters of Bible his-
Dr. Glueck has made full use of
the to guide him to ancient
sites, and he demonstrates how
Biblical lore provides clues to an-
cient cities long forgotten, how

archaeologists use these clues, and
how pottery remains unlock an-
cient mysteries and fill out the
Biblical records.
The book is illustrated with 64
pages of photographs, showing the
river and surrounding areas, the
sites Nelson Glueck has uncovered
and ancient artifacts.
