on ABC television "Issues and
Answers" program, dismissed re-
ports that there had been no clear
agreement with Moscow the ban
of introducing missiles into the
32-mile truce zone when the Arab-
Israeli cease fire went into effect
on Aug. 7. "There was no doubt
there was an understanding,"
Rogers said. "The Soviet Union
was part of it. They understood
Laird also offered examples of
what the administration considers
bad faith on the part of the Soviet
Union in situations ranging from
a speedup in the arms race to the
Middle East and Indochina. He
concentrated on what he termed
the "tremendous momentum" in
the Soviet weapons development—
ranging from increases in build-
ing intercontinental missile sites
to the expansion of the Soviet nu-
clear submarine fleet.
The United States and Israel
were in agreement Tuesday that
Egypt's violation of the Suez cease
fire was a matter to be settled out-
side the framework of the stalled
Jarring peace talks. Eban made
that point when he was asked by
newsmen Tuesday whether Israel
would agree to resume the Jarring
talks if the Egyptian violations
were the first item on the agenda.
At a press briefing, State De-
partment spokesman Robert J.
McCloskey said in reply to the
same questions that he "would
agree with the (Israeli) foreign
Referring to the cease fire vio-
latlins, McCloskey said "this is
a matter to be settled between
and among the parties and in
which the U. S. has a role." He
said the U. S. was standing firm
on its demand for rectification
of the violations.
Eban met for 65 minutes with
Rogers Tuesday. According to in-
formed sources, the meeting was
"useful" and focused on a general
review of the Middle East situa-
tion; that Israel wanted to see
the cease fire extended beyond its
Nov. 5 deadline; that they also re-
portedly discussed the cease fire
violations and Rogers was said to
have expressed his full sympathy
and understanding of the Israeli
Rogers reportedly reiterated the
hope that the Jarring peace talks
would be resumed soon.
Eban told reporters that Israel
was satisfied that the U. S. was
impressing on the Soviet Union
and Egypt the importance of keep-
ing agreements and restoring con-
fidence in them.
Eban rejected the Soviet conten-
tion that it had violated no agree-
ment because it had signed none.
He said that as far as Israel is
concerned there was a definite So-
viet commitment with regard to
the standstill cease fire.
Foreign Minister Mahmoud Riad
of Egypt left Cairo Tuesday for
the United Nations in New York
amid reports that he will call for
a General Assembly debate on the
Middle East and a resolution con-
demning Israeli "aggression."
The Egyptians are expected to
seek a new UN resolution that will
define more sharply the elements
of the Security Council's Resolu-
tion 242 of Nov. 22, 1967, which
calls for Israel's withdrawal from
the occupied Arab territories.

LONDON ( J T A) — Diplomatic
sources in Cairo believe that the
post-Nasser regime in Egypt is too
weak to remove Soviet missiles
from the standstill cease fire zone
without risking an army revolt,
it was reported Wednesday.
They say only Nasser command.
ed sufficient support to make such

a move and even then it would
have been no more than a token
removal of one or two missiles.
Sources here believe that despite
the Egyptian buildup, Israel would
still have a military edge should
the cease fire end next month,
though Israel would probably have
to take higher casualties and air-
craft losses than they did during
their one-sided pounding of Egyp-
tian missile sites and bases before
the Aug. 7 truce.
(Newsweek, reporting on "sea
power in the Mediterranean" this
week, stated:
(Russia is still building up its
Mediterranean fleet. Latest ar-
rivals (from the Caribbean) are
two more missile ships, a cruiser
and a destroyer. The 11 missile-
firing Soviet vessels now in the
Mediterranean carry 318 surface-
to-air missiles, about one for every
olane in the U. S. Sixth Fleet.
Nonetheless, on the basis of fire-
power, the American armada, with
three carriers (to the Soviet's
none), is rated five to ten times
more powerful than the Russian

respondent George C. Wilson re-

Concurrently, jet engines man-

Company are earmarked for use in
Israeli planes under an agree-
ment-in-principle among the Israeli
government, the State Department
and GE, Post reporter Michael
Getler wrote. The engine, a rough

been test-flown in Israel, is a modi-
fication of the J-79 that the United
States has been sending Israel for
use in Phantom F-4Es. Israel is
reportedly urging GE to improve
the J-79 further, even though it is

curate jets in the world, the Post

The Big Four met for two hours
Tuesday morning and later re-
affirmed the need to "continue and
accelerate" their consultations in
pursuit of a peaceful settlement of
the Middle East conflict. The meet-
ing was held at the French UN
mission with Ambassador Jacques
Kosciusko-Morizet as host.
The next meeting was scheduled
for Oct. 28 at the Soviet mission.
Last week's suspension of the Big
Four deputies' meeting at the in-
sistence of the United States over
Suez Canal cease fire violations
was understood to have been dis-
cussed Tuesday. Sir Colon Crowe,
the British ambassador, reiterated
his government's objections to the
suspension but observed that there
was "no alternative but to accept"
it. He said a "short break" may
not be too harmful after all.
The statement after Tuesday's
meeting stressed that the four
oowers continued to seek a Mid
East settlement based on the UN
Security Council's Resolution 242,
"which should be carried out in
all its parts."
In Jerusalem, an Israeli mili-
tary spokesman denied Monday a
charge last Friday by Soviet Am-,
bassador Yakob A. Malik that Is-
raeli aircraft were violating the
cease fire agreement "almost
daily." The - spokesman told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
"the Israeli planes in the Suez
Canal Zone fly only within the
limits prescribed by the cease fire

have repeatedly declared that Is-

the truce. The spokesman Monday
did not, however, reply to Malik's

ments (for) missile installations."

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Israel lodged

its 22nd complaint of Egyptian
cease fire violations with the
United Nations Truce Supervision
Organization (UNTSO) Oct. 8. The
complaint, based on information
that reached Israeli military au-
thorities Oct. 7, charged that
the Egyptians continued to ad-
vance Soviet-made SAM-2 and
SAM-3 antiaircraft missiles east-
ward in the 30-mile standstill cease-
fire zone west of the Suez Canal.
The Israeli complaint said the
Egyptians were working on prepa-
rations for more missile sites
within the restricted zone. It point-
ed out that the SAM-3 missiles are
manned and operated by Soviet
personnel. (Reports from Beirut,
Oct. 7 quoted Western news-
men reporting they had seen
a truck convoy carrying what they
believed to be SAM-2 missiles
parked in the desert inside the
cease fire zone. The location of the
trucks was given as about 20 miles
west of the city of Suez and a mile
north of the main highway from
Cairo. Nine trucks were counted,
each harnessed to a missile about
35 feet long and four or five feet
in diameter covered with canvas.
The missile noses were pointed up-
ward at a slight angle indicating
