UAR Note to Thant Charges Israel Using Phantoms
rf, -

Egypt has protested to the United
Nations against the alleged use by
Israel of American-made Phantom
/et fighter-bombers against Egyp-
tian forces. In a letter to secretary
General U Thant, Egyptian Am-
bassador Mohammed-Hassan El-
Zayyat warned that "Such military
aid cannot but sustain Israel in its
attempts to consolidate its aggres-
sion and plan further expansion."

He said that "The use of U.S.-
built Phantom jet aircraft by Israel

occupying forces hears out the
warnings and apprehensions re-
peatedly expressed by the Arab
countries regarding the serious
repercussions of providing such
offensive weapons to Israel."
The Egyptian envoy quoted re-
ports from Lt. Gen. Odd Bull,
chief of the UN Truce Super-
vision Organization, confirming
use of the Phantoms. In appar-
ent criticism of the U.S., al-
Zayyat said "military aid as-
sumes a disturbing character

Goya made the 18 large etchings
in his last main print series while
he was still deeply disturbed phy-
sically and mentally after a pre-
vious illness. He was nearly totally
deaf, and was 73 years old. His
wife had died, and his son was an
idler. His popularity at court and
among those who commissioned
pictures was at a low ebb, and
Spain, itself, was staggering along
under the stupid and autocratic
rule of one of the worst of its
Bourbon kings, Ferdinand VII. It
is little wonder that Goya was dis-
turbed. And his abject discourage-
ment and depression are vividly
reflected in the print series most
often called Los Proverbios (Pro-
verbs) by the public.

The Soviet government has ex-
a kind of recognition to
the Palestine guerrilla movement
for the first time by inviting a
delegation to visit Moscow at the
end of this month. The invitation
was reportedly the first to an Dropsie U. Prof Writes
