MIAMI (JTA)—Arab servicemen
being trained at the Homestead
Air Force Base near here in the
operation and maintenance of F-104
jet fighters which the United
States is supplying to the kingdom
of Jordan, have been canvassing
gunshops in the downtown Miami
area to buy small arms to take
back to Jordan,
According to Jacob Chernofsky,
managing editor of the Jewish
Floridian, the Arab trainees have
been visiting the gun stores seek-
ing mainly Smith and Wesson .38
cal., "Bodyguard" revolvers. They
bought up all available to them at
more than $100 each and left ord-
ers for other types of small arms.
At least one Jewish gunsmith re-
fused to sell them weapons.
A Homestead Air Force Base
spokesman said that six Jordanian
pilots and 15 ground crew person-
nel arrived for training here early
in September. They were out look-
ing for guns a week later. Most of
the Arab purchasers said they re-
quired the guns "for official use,"
or "for gifts" or for "personal

Orzanizations to Press
for Ratification of UN
Rights Conventions

ALBANY, N.Y. (JTA)—Sixteen
American and Canadian organiza-
tions concerned with international
human rights announced here that
they will launch a campaign to
press for ratification of all United
Nations human rights conventions
by the United States Congress and
by Canadian legislative 'bodies.
Canada has ratified five of the
covenants. The U.S. so far has
accepted the convention outlawing
slavery but has still not ratified
those outlawing racial discrimina-
tion, genocide and political dis-
crimination against women.

The sheep and the wolf are not
agreed upon a definition of the
word liberty; and precisely the
s a in e difference prevails today

powerful Bulgarian team to an up-
set 1-1 tie in Oct. 20's Olympic con-
test only to be declared the loser
by a lottery after neither team
managed to score in overtime play.
The Israelis, plagued by injuries
and fatigue, were thus denied a
place in the semi-finals of the
Olympic soccer tournament and
possibly in the finals as well. The
undefeated Bulgarians rated by ex-
perts as the strongest soccer squad
at the Olympics.
An American-Jewish swimmer,
Debbie Meyer, won he first Olym-
pic Gold`Medal Oct. 20 when she
scored an easy victory over seven
competitiors in the 400-meter wom-
en's freestyle. Miss Meyer set an
Olympic record of 4:31.8 though it
was below her own world record
mark of 4:24.5. Another American
Jew, Mark Spitz, is favored to win
the 100-meter men's butterfly
finals next Monday.
Israeli track and swimming
stars failed to qualify for final
events in trial heats. A long-
distance walker finished 24th in
a field of 36 starters. Israeli
marksmen did poorly in shoot-
ing events in which they were
expected to excel.
The athletes engaged in events
that require physical stamina gen-
erally attributed their poor form to
the high altitude. This was partic-
ularly true of the swimmers who
complained of breathing difficult-
ies because of the lack of oxygen.
But Jewish athletes from other
countries have turned in top per-
formances in many strenuous
events, including swimming.
Two Ghanaian players who at-
tacked a referee and Israeli team
members after losing a game were
suspended for a full year by the
Olympic disciplinary committee.
Two other Ghanaians who were
ordered off the field for rough play
received two-game suspensions.
