CHICAGO—A new proposal aim-
ed at solving the Middle East prob-
lem was presented by a U.S. sci-
entist and industrial leader at the
American Technion Society annual
science and technology conference
Prof. Keeve M. Siegel, chairman
of KMS Industries, Ann Arbor, and
former teacher at the University
of Michigan, suggested that Israel
would be willing to give back most

Conference on Science and Tech-
nology in Israel and the Middle
East. The conference was spon-

is "to make Israel stronger mili-
tarily rather than weaker."
"For example, if in a peace
treaty ordered by the United Na-
tions, Israel was going to give up
most of greater ISRAEL and Israel
was going to receive for free 200
MIG-23s and 200 Phantoms and a
billion dollars of economic aid, and
the Arabs were going to get almost
all their land back but no military
weapons, then I think the lines on
the new maps would disappear."
Julius J. Harwood, assistant di-
rector of materials science, Ford
Motor Co., Dearborn, discussed de-
velopments in materials and ma-
terials science engineering
The development of amorphous
semiconductors and the switching
effects they allow were described
