LONDON tJT.-11 —Israel spent
more per capita on armaments in
1969 than any of its Arab neigh-
bors. according to a survey by the

its foes on a fairly even basis but

and many other factors.

spent $829,000,000 the previous
year, for a per - capita expenditure
of $224. In contrast, the per capi-
ta arms expenditure by Iraq this
