Rabin Says U.S. and Israel Agree
on M.E. Arms; Aid Assured to Israel

Yitzhak Rabin of Israel con-
cluded four days of talks with
President Gerald Ford last
week, and said that the U,S.
and Israel have agreed on
how to proceed with Middle-
east diplomacy.
He added that the U.S. has
also given assurance to Is-
rael that it will meet her
military needs.
(Speaking on the NBC
"Meet the Press" program
Sunday, Prime Minister Rabin
was optimistic about the af-
fect of his talks with Presi-
dent Ford and Seeretary of
State Henry Kissinger, and
said that Israel is prepared
to make "'territorial conces-
sions in the interest of
Rabin said that both the
U.S. and Israel were concen-
trating on new talks between
Israel and Egypt as the most
fruitful follow-up to the troop
separation accords Israel
r ea c h e d with Egypt and
Rabin stressed that Israel
would not withdraw from ter-
ritory unless the other side
issued a pledge of non-bel-
ligerency. American officials
called this the opening state-
ment in negotiations for an
Israeli pullback from occu-
pied Egyptian lands in the
Sinai Desert in exchange -far
security guarantees.
American sources said in-
cluding Jordan in negotia-
tions was also discussed, but
that Israel prefers to deal
with the Egyptians first be-
cause a Jordanian deal would
cause serious political prob-
lems in Israel and probably
force a national election.
It could also lead to seri-
ous problems with the Pales-
tinians, who have refused to
agree to Jordan's negotiating
. for the Palestinians on the
West Bank of the Jordan
River. -
Continuation of American
military support for Israel
had been forecast in advance
of Rabin's visit but its dimen-
sions are still uncertain.
Israel is reportedly asking
for $1.5 billion annually in
military assistance for the
next five years. A high Is-
raeli official said, hOwever,
that the kind and amounts of
armaments are under discus-
sion, not their current costs.
Sources said Israel is seek-
ing 200 U.S. M-60 heavy
tanks, and - supplies of laser-
guide "smart bombs," mis-
sile-firing helicopters and
ground-to-ground, missiles.
U.S.-Israeli military discus-
sions were expanded when
Gen. Mordechai Hod, an ad-
viser to Rabin met with De-
fense Secretary James
Schlesinger. Hod, command-
er of Israel's southern com-
mand, was not named in the
anginal list of Rabin's en-

ment of continued support
came against a background
of reports that the Soviet
Union has resumed ship-
ments to Egypt of war
planes and spare parts for
the planes, tanks and mis-
sile installations Moscow had
previously supplied to the
Sadat government.
There also were reports
that the Soviets have in-

country the strongest air
power of all of Israel's neigh-
The Russians were also re-
ported to be supplying Iraq

Before returning to Israel,
Rabin spoke to 750 Ameri-
can Jewish leaders_Saturday
at a dinner in New York
sponsored by the Unit e d
Jewish Appeal and the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds.
He stressed that immedi-
ate economic and military
aid from the United States
to Israel was indispensible
to Israel's security and to
the success of any Mideast
peace negotiations.
Rabin said the major is-
sue and stumbling -block was
not territory, but the Arabs'
refusal to recognize an in-
dependent Jewish state.

Immigrants' Second Generation
Led Jewish Climb 'in Academia

NEW YORK — A study in
Science magazine - reveals
that Jewish groups have ad-
vanced to second position
among 13 denominations in
the U.S. in the production of
scholarly and scientific doc-
torates and that an upsurge
in such productivity among
Middle Atlantic schools re-
flects the high output of Yes-
hiva University.
The study was made by
Kenneth R. Hardy, professor
of psychology, Brigham
Young University, "based on
exhaustive data gathered
over a 40 year period, and
includes "state and regional
analysis and individual col-
legiate institutions, specifi-
cally focusing on religips
In the study, Prof. Hardy
contrasts productivity reg-
ionally and among "denom-
inational" schools between
1920-39, and during 1950-61.
Surveyed were 295 schools,
81 of which were "under the
control of some religious de-

productive state is Utah; and
that the most striking change
during the past 40 years has
been - the great surge - of
Middle Atlantic states from

regional productivity, led-bb
New York.

He writes that "The most
likely explanation for the
upsurge of Middle Atlantic
states . . in the later
period is the impact of Jew-
ish second generation immi-
gant. youth."


He also states that "In the
case of the -Jewish faith, the
great productivity of 'Yes-
hiva University in the later
period is mirrored' in cer-
tain New York (and possible
other North Atlantic Sea-
board) schools.":
In noting the high academ-
ic productivity of Jewish
groups, which were second
