The center will be a clearing
house for the recruitment of pro-
fessors and lecturers.
Israel's three major universities
— Weizmann Institute, .Technion
and the Hebrew •University—have
pledged their cooperation, „as has
the foreign ministry. An additional
function of the center will be the
promotion of new Judaica chairs.
Finkelstein said also that a pilot
project of the "Bridge of Brother-
hood" scholastic scheme has suc-
ceeded beyond expectations. Five
more high school classes from
Argentina, Uruguay and possibly
Chile are to follow in the current
school year.

more than last year.

Mrs. John H. Herman cuts the ribbon in pool opening ceremonies
this summer at the Jewish Center's II Mile branch. With her at the
John IL Herman Instructional Pool is Jewish Center President N.
Brewster Broder. Looking on are Albert M. Colman, chairman of
the summer program committee; George D. Keil and Milton J.
Millet, former presidents of the Jewish Center; and Mrs. Albert N.
Kaufman and Cindy Kaufman, daughter and granddaughter of Mrs.
Herman. The pool, named for Mrs. Herman's husband, was
available for use by more than 500 youngsters. Because of the
availability of the pool this year, the day camp program was able to
provide more intensive individual and group swimming instruction,
besides more recreational swim time. The physical education depart-
ment sponsored one afternoon swim for children and tweens, and at
the end of -the summer launched two intensive swim classes for

Israel Fears Greater Soviet Role
to Emerge Out of Fighting in Jordan

in Jordan they would be opposed
by a guerrilla force commanding
artillery and tanks. Observers
here said that from the military
standpoint, Israel was better suited
than the 'U.S. to intervene in Jor-
There was a difference of opin-
ion as to whether Israel would
launch a preemptive strike or
would wait until Syrian forces in
Jordan actually fired on Israeli
territory, giving Israel cause to re-
The cabinet met in extraordin-
ary session Tuesday morning to
hear Premier Golda Meir's report
on her American visit. The situa-
tion in Jordan was high on the
agenda. Some observers said Israel
fears that events in Jordan will
paire the way for greater Soviet
influence and even the menace of
a Soviet military presence in that
country with Soviet missiles con-
fronting Israel on its eastern fron-
tier as they do now in the Suez
Canal zone. Such a development
would not fend Israel "sitting with
its hands folded," one commen-
tator said Tuesday.
Syria's lefist Baathist regime
Is supported and supplied with
military equipment by Moscow
though not to the same extent as
Egypt. Some observers said the
Kremlin considers the quixotic
Syrians too unreliable as clients
to risk all-out involvement as is
the case with Egypt.
The Israel government's attitude
Tuesday was best described as
"watchful waiting." Israel, as a
matter of principle, has avoided
interference -in Jordan's internal
affairs. But this policy would be
altered if the status quo in Jordan
is destroyed. As far as Israel is
considered, the status quo would
even apply to a Palestinian guer-
rilla takeover in Amman, but not
to the creation of a Syrian enclave
in northern Jordan.
Nevertheless, Israel government
officials were reportedly prepared
to give the Jordanian crisis a
chance to abate. There is a belief
in some quarters that the Syrians
will be forced to withdraw under
foreign pressure, including that
from other Arab states.
Israeli military observers said
the Syrians were apparently reluc-
tant to wage all-out war against
King Hussein.
Military observers said the ob-
jective of the Syrian invasion
seemed to be to lift the siege of
Irbid. The Israelis said that since
Syrian troops wore the camou-
flage battle dress of Palestinian
commandos and Syrian tanks
were painted with commando
insignia, the operation had been
prepared well in advance.

Israeli military circles said that
King Hussein could have repulsed
the Syrian thrust had he concen-
trated his armored forces against
it. They pointed out however that
a significant part of Hussein's
army was pinned down watching
some 12,000 Iraqi troops stationed
around the town of Mafraq in
northern Jordan. A move by the
Iraqis in support of the guerrillas
would menace Hussein's flanks.
Israelis who observed some of
the fighting in Jordan from hill-
tops in the Golan Heights said
Hussein's forces appeared to be
trying to encircle the Syrian forces.
Large convoys of Jordanian army
vehicles were seen making their
way down the Jordan Valley road
in an attempt to flank the Syrians
entrenched in the heights around
Irbid. There were no signs of Syr-
ian movements along the Golan
Heights line with Israel, indicating
that the Syrians had committed a
large part of their forces to the
fighting in Jordan.
Unrest was increasing on the
West Bank as the Jordanian crisis
worsened. Many West Bankers
feared for the safety of relatives in
Jordan and asked for permission
to bring them into the Israel-held
territory for safety. But they are
unable to do so as long as the
bridges are blocked.
Sentiment ...11 the West Bank
favors the guerrillas over King
Hussein. Israel Police Minister
Shlomo Hillel said in Haifa Mon-
day that what goes on in Jordan
affects the population on the West
Bank as almost every family there
has a relative in Jordan.
