Power Balance at Stake, U.S. Told

Metzenbaum in Orbit

(Continued from Page 1)
claim that the military balance
in the Mid East has been changed
to its detriment: the construction
of Soviet-made SAM-3 anti-aircraft
missile launchers operated by Rus-
sian personnel at Alexandria, Cairo
and the Aswan High Dam; evi-
dence that Soviet combat pilots
have been flying operational mis-
sions over Egypt in Egyptian
MIGs; evidence that the Russians
have begun building SAM-3 sites in
the Suez Canal zone which Israel
considers absolutely vital to the de-
fense of its Suez Canal lines. While
U. S. officials question the latter
evidence, the U. S. has confirmed
the activities of Russian pilots
through independent intelligence
sources.
(Egypt officially denied for the
second time in two weeks that So-
viet pilots• were flying defensive
missions over Egypt. Ahmed Amis,
an Egyptian spokesman, issued the
denial at a press conference in
Cairo Wednesday when he was
questioned by a Japanese news-
man about the "widely circulated
facts" concerning the presence of
Soviet pilots. Amis said, "I should
emphasize that since the 1967 Arab-
Israeli war we have never denied
the presence of Russian experts
here. But we stress that not only
is the Russian effort defensive but
the Egyptian military effort is als3
of defensive nature."
(East E u ra opean diplomatic
sources said Tuesday that Russian
soldiers will fire the SAM-3 ground-
to-air missiles at Israeli Phantom
jets crossing the Suez Canal when
the sites the Soviet Union is install-
ing in Egypt are ready for action.
(Sources said that if Egyptian
pilots trained to fly MIG-21 jets
prove inadequate, Russian pilots
will take over and fly them in com-
bat against Israeli planes behind
the Suez lines.)
Eban's visit to Washington is in-
tended to press the Nixon adminis-
tration once more for a favorable
decision on Israel's long-standing
request for 50 additional Phantom
jets and other military planes.
MONTREAL (JTA) — Foreign,
Minister Abba Eban told a Jewish
audience here Sunday night that
Israel will "never go back to the
juridical anarchy, the political
chaos and to the demarcation line"
of 1967. "This time, nothing less
than peace within rational, secure
and permanent boundaries with
our neighbors" will be accepted,
he said. "Never shall there be a
Middle East without an Israeli
sovereign state in the area." Eban,
who arrived here from London
Sunday, drew a crowd of 18,000
described as the largest single
gathering in the history of Mont-
real Jewry. He came to Canada to
discuss Middle East problems with
government offiicals. Eban drew
an emotionhl response from his
audience when he declared that the
Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip,
Sharm el-Sheikh and Jerusalem

Politics brings a smile to the
face of Clevelander Howard
Metzenbaum. The 52-year-old mil-
lionaire attorney and parking lot
magnate defeated former astro-
naut John Glenn, America's first
man in orbit, for the Democratic
nomination for U.S. senator.

Yevtushenko Poem
Dedicated to Kent
Coed in Pravda

LONDON (JTA) — The Soviet
Communist Party newspaper
Pravda published a poem Monday
dedicated to Allison Krause, the
19-year-old Pittsburgh girl who
was one of four students shot to
death by National Guardsmen at
Kent State University in Ohio
May 4.
The poem was written by Yev-
geny Yevtushenko, author of the
famous poem "Babi Yar," which
described the Nazi massacre of
Jews in the Ukraine during
World War II. Miss Krause and
two others of the slain students
were Jewish.
The poem was titled "Flowers
and Bullets." Its theme was based
on reports that on the day before
her death, Miss Krause put a
flower in the muzzle of a guards-
man's rifle and said, "Flowers
are better than bullets."
"Don't give flowers to the

state, where truth is punished,"
Yevtushenko wrote. "Such a
state's gift in return is cynical
and cruel. And the gift to you
In return, Allison Krause, was a
bullet that pushed the flower
back." In another verse, the
poet declared, "Arise, murdered
Allison Krause, like an immor-
telle of the epoch, a thorny
flower of protest." An immortelle

Is a flower frequently placed on
graves.
Yevtushenko, once considered a
voice of truth in the Soviet Union,
fell from official grace in recent
years and has lately produced
poetry that critics regard as poor
and conformist. "Flowers and bul-
lets" was described as both a good
poem and one that met the Krem-
lin's propaganda needs. However,
students of Yevtushenko's work
saw in it a two-edged sword aimed
at repression in the Soviet Union,
as well as in the United States.

Bronze Age Utensils
Found in Burial Cave

JERUSALEM—Discoveries of the
first Bronze Age, about 2,000 BCE,
such as pottery, bronze spear-
heads and rare oil lamps have
been found in a burial cave at
Menahemiya in the Jordan Valley.
An Israel Antiquities Department
spokesman said that the cave had
been the burial site of nomadic
tribes and that the articles dis-
covered had probably been buried
with human beings.
The cave, nine yards long by
three yards wide, hewn out of
rock, was unearthed by , a bulldozer
driver digging foundations for a

shelter.

"will never be torn from our
hearts." He promised, however.
that when Israel's negotiating team
goes to the peace table it will carry
"many positive proposals for a
secure and lasting peace. We
don't want to rule one and a half
million Arabs," Eban said. "What
we want is a boundary, similar to
those existing between the Scan-
dinavian states."
Eban attributed the absence of
peace in the Middle East to the re-
fusal of the Arabs, particularly
Egypt's President Nasser, "to give
up their slogans of passion and
hatred and to overcome their psy-
chological illusion that Israel can
be destroyed. If a new war should

break out, and we hope it won't
happen," Eban said, "the result
will be the same as in 1967 be-
cause we are fighting for our sur-
vival, and without victory there can
be no survival."

Dr. William A. Wexler, president
of the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organiza-

tions, reported on a 45-minute
8440 W. 9 MILE • 548-5600
meeting with Secretary of State
William P. Rogers by a conference
delegation. He said Rogers had de-
scribed the Soviet military inter-
vention in the Middle East as
"ominous" and that the U. S. was
intensely reviewing the situation.

Dr. Wexler said the delegation
told Rogers that-the Soviet build-
up was "not only an encourage-
ment to Arab intransigence and a
fueling of the war of attrition
against Israel, but a challenge to
America's interests and a repudia-
tion of American efforts to secure

tions. He did not elaborate, but it
was assumed he was threatening

with Arab lands, as did Syria last
week. He repeated the continuing

Arab charge that U. S. aid to Is-

rael would constitute "aggression"

He referred unfavorably to reports
of American sales of bombs to
Israel.
But Benhima had kind words for
U. S. Ambassador Charles W.
Yost's May 14 council plea for
mutual respect for the cease fire.
(The Arabs contend Israel vio-
lates it.) In his remarks then, Yost
for the first time recommended
the inclusion of the Palestinian
Arabs as a party to a "just settle-
ment" in the Mid East. The thrust
of that speech, however, was that
the Arabs, especially Syria. were
largely responsible for Mid East
tensions, and that Israel was being
forced to defend itself. The U. S.
mission declined comment on the
implication of Yost's reference to
