Israel. This ignores the $1,-

000,000,000 ceiling proposed
by the Senate Appropriations
Committee.
The legislation also pro-
vides $300,000,000 in military
credits to Israel for the pur-
chase of arms and $50,000,000
in economic aid. The Senate
added $36,500,000 to assist
Soviet Jews emigrating to
Israel although the State de-
partment testified that the
funds were not needed.
At hearings before the For-
eign Relations Committee,
administration spokesmen
clashed with witnesses op-
posed to the measure and dis-
puted committee chairman
Fulbright's contention that
there was no urgency to act
on the President's request
and that its passage at this
time might have adverse ef-
fects on the Arab-Israeli
peace conference.
Deputy Secretary of State
Kenneth Rush, one of the ad-
ministration witnesses, ar-
gued that on the contrary,
the $2,200,000,000 was essen-
tial now "to give assurances
to Israel" and a "warning to
the Arabs" not to start the
war again.
Rush said the administra-
tion wanted the measure
passed by both houses before
Congress adjourned for its
five-week Christmas recess.
The measure was vigorous-
ly opposed by Rep. James
A. McClure (R. Idaho), who
said the U.S. was obliged to
help Israel defend her pre-
June 1967 borders against
aggression "but we should
not do more. We cannot have
one set of standards for the
Arabs and another for Israel;
our policy should be based on
our own self-interest," Mc-
Clure said.
He decried use of the term
"oil blackmail" to charac-
terize the current Arab oil
embargo of the West.
McClure recently returned
from a visit to Egypt, Saudi
Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan and
Kuwait. He admitted to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
later that the Kuwaiti gov-
ernment had paid the air fare
for himself and an aide on
the trip but said he paid his
own hotel bills and other
expenses.
Sen. James Abourezk

(D. S.D.) denounced the ad-
ministration's "bankrupt pol-
icy in the Middle East." He
argued that it was "ludi-
crous" for Congress to ap-
propriate huge amounts for
military assistance to Israel
when refusing social pro-
grams for U.S. citizens.
Meanwhile, the House Ap-
propriations Committee ap-
proved a measure calling for
$1,700,000,000 in grants to
Israel with the balance of
$500,000,000 to be spent by
the President if needed but
subect to Congress' approval.
The House Foreign Affairs
Committee Tuesday approved
an authorization bill calling

Americans Urged to Withstand
Arabs' Crude' Oil Diplomacy

Noted syndicated columnist
William S. White, whose
commentary appears in the
Detroit News, described as
"c rude diplomacy" the
Arabs' "turning on or turn-
ing off of a crude oil valve"
and urged Americans not to
allow it to dictate the for-
eign policy of the United
States.
White said in his Dec. 13

article that the U. S. can
"either honorably win or
meanly lose a confrontation
whose symbol is as homely
as an oil rig but as important
as any crisis since Cuba in
the 1960s."
The writer blamed the So-
viet Union, whose "strategy
contemplates eventual Soviet
control of the whole of the
Mideast — a control neces-
sarily involving the prior
destruction of Israel as a pro-
Western beachhead — and
not merely control of the

for $1.000,000,000 in grants to
Israel. The balance would be
provided in the form of
grants or loans at the admin-
istration's discretion with re-
payment over 25 years.
Later, the Senate reversed
its appropriations committee
by a voice vote and without
dissent approved an amend-
ment by Sen. Edmund S.
Muskie (D. Me.) to provide
$36,500,000 to help settle Sov-
iet Jewish immigrants in
Israel.
The committee had earlier
voted down the assistance
measure on the basis that
the administration did not
want to appropriate the funds.

Mideast's oil.
"This strategy, moreover,
involves outflanking the
Western alliance over the
whole basin of the Mediter-
ranean and domination of the
Indian Ocean as well."
If these intentions can be
impressed on the American
people, said White, they can
put up with the inconveni-
ence of an oil shortage. But,
he adds, can the fear of for-
eign involvement be over-
come and the American
people be made to realize the
realities? And to realize that
"when the Arabs say they
will loosen the screw on the
oil pipe if only Israel will
first withdraw from the pro-
tective buffer areas she won
in the 1967 war, this is no
reasonable compromise but
rather a demand that Israel
begin a process of slow mili-
tary suicide?
"That to support Israel
here is no more to be senti-
mentally 'pro-Israel,' or 'pro-
Jewish,' than our support of
Russia against Hitler was for
the love of Josef Stalin? That
not some 'Jewish lobby' but
rather the gut, vital interests
of the United States of Amer-
ica is the point here?" White
said he has seen sharply
divided Jewish opinion in
this country. "Most of my
own liberal Jewish friends
and acquaintances indeed
are not coming to Israel's
defense."

Studies Tailor-Made
for Students at Front

REHOVOT — Special pro-
grams tailored to the needs
of individual students of the
Weizmann Institute's Fein-
berg Graduate School — who
are now in active service —
were announced by Graduate
School Dean Haim Harari.

In a letter to students at
the front, Prof. Harari in-
formed them that the aca-
demic year would begin
Sunday. He asked each of
them to come to the grad-
uate school, when next on
leave, to work out a studies
program with their academic
advisers. Some courses will
be given in the form of tutor-
ing, others will be repeated
more than once (if necessary
during the summer as well),
and, in some instances,
written summaries and bibli-
ographies will be supplied to
students who wish to keep
up with a particular subject
while they are still in uni-
form.
In the event of mass de-
mobilization, Prof. Harari
added, efforts will be made
to begin new courses in the
middle of the academic year.
