Immediate Sale of Phantoms to Israel Demanded in Congress
(Continued from Page 1)
Sen. Robert P. Griffin, Michigan
Republican, introduced a resolu-
tion recently that differed from
the stand of House Republicans.
The Griffin resolution, now en-
dorsed by 11 Senators, called for
an American-Soviet agreement on
freezing arms shipments to the
Presidential Adviser Walt W.
Ro.,tow 1.1.77- +e Sen. Griffin that
the idea was similar to that pro-
posed by the President on June
19, 1967, but not accepted by the
Russians, for registration of arms
shipments to the Middle East.
State Department officials wel-
comed the Griffin proposal, now
echoed by Moscow, but said the
idea was unrealistic. Defense De-
partment sources said that the
Russian freeze maneuver was
perilous to Israel because the Rus-
sians would not hesitate to pour
more arms into the leftist Arab
States as soon as present supplies
are absorbed. Meanwhile U.S. de-
liveries to Israel would be inhib-
ited, they said.
Israel Postpones Signing
of Nuclear Treaty
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel's
signature on the nuclear non-pro-
liferation treaty has been delayed
pending consultation with other
nations on possible atomic monop-
oly features that might apply to
the peaceful uses of nuclear en-
ergy. Authoritative sources said
Israel will sign the treaty if reser-
vations on the peaceful uses of
nuclear power can be clarified.

Sen. Griffin Warns USSR
Role Spells 'Hidden Danger'
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Sen-
ator Robert P. Griffin (R-Mich.)
warned Tuesday that Soviet Pre-
mier Kosygin's call for arms con-
trol in the Middle East "could
contain hidden dangers for the
United States and for our tradi-
tional allies in the area, including
"The indication of Soviet inter-
est in regional arms control in
the Middle East may be a step
in the right direction, but it should
be viewed with caution," Griffin
"We should guard against the
possibility of a closed-door deal
with the Soviet Union which might
jeopardize the security of Israel
and other friendly countries."
Griffin has been a strong advo-
cate of a new initiative to avert
the Middle East arms race, but he
maintains that any agreement to a non-proliferation treaty on con-
limit ,armaments should be nego- ventional weapons for the Middle
tiated among all the parties con- East.

Griffin urged the Senate to con- which all states—not just the great
sider his resolution which calls powers—will share responsibility
on the President to work toward for arms control.

The conflict of views was an in-
dication that the Orthodox move-
ment will again enter a dissent,
as it has in recent years, from the
joint policy statement on church-
state issues that is to be reviewed
here by the NCRAC agencies. Dr.
Schick said that Jewish groups
must "forego sterile pronounce-
ments and threatening cliches that
have already been rejected by
other libertarian forces." He urged
that they participate "in working
out an equitable formula" for
pupils in public and parochial
schools. "The old Jewish position
on church-state relations serves
neither to advance the public wel-
fare nor to promote a healthy re-
lationship among governmental
authorities of all types of schools,"
Dr. Pfeffer strongly disagreed.
He described the textbook decision
as only a "fringe benefit" reaf-
ming earlier court rulings. He
id the court's concern appeared
be "the extent of religiosity" in
the classroom acceptable when it
is "a small and incidental" aspect
of the curriculum but likely to be
ruled unconstitutional "when it
permeates the teaching and prac-
tices of the school."
This requires religious groups
"to choose between operating their
schools in the traditional way, in
which religious teachings and prac-
tices play a major role, in which
case they would have to give up
