to-air missile system.
Department spokesman

reporters Monday that the

ment ordered by President
'Ford is completed. Negotia-
tions to provide Israel with

tem were suspended pend-
ing the reassessment.
The State Department
explained later that the
agreement to sell the Hawk
system to Jordan had been
reached "in principle" when
Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger visited Amman
last'November and there-
fore was not a commitment.
It was also pointed out that
Israel is continuing to re-
ceive arms supplies con-
tracted for earlier, a fact
that has been acknowledged
by Israeli spokesmen.
Officials refused to dis-
close how many Hawk bat-
teries will be sold to Jor-
dan, when they would be
delivered and how much
they would cost. One esti-
mate has placed the cost at
$100 million over a period
of years.
King Hussein of Jordan,
meanwhile, is barnstorming
the U.S-. on a speaking tour
of college campuses. He
spoke at Florida State Uni-
versity Monday and at the
Citadel, the military college
of South Carolina Tuesday.
His theme is essentially the
same at all stops: that Jor-
dan, Egypt and Syria are
ready to make peace if Is-
rael is ready to withdraw
from all occupied Arab ter-
ritories. and to recognize
"the legimate rights of the
Palestinian people."

JDL'ers Kosher Food Request Rejected; Attorney to Appeal

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Nathan Lewin, the attorney
for two Jewish DefenSe
League members seeking
kosher food during their
prison terms for criminal
contempt, said he will file
an appeal against .a ruling
rejecting the kosher-food
request.

Federal Court Judge
Thomas Griesa ruled
against the request Monday
from Jeffrey Smiloi, and
Richard Huss, who were
convicted last July after
they refused to testify
against three other JDL
members who were arrested

in the January 1972 bomb-
ing of the offices of Sol Hu-
rok.
Smilow and Huss are in
- the Federal House of Deten-
tion in Manhattan. They
have been ordered to serve
their one-year terms; which
started last month, at the
Federal Youth Center iri
Ashland, Ky.
They had contended
they had a constitutional
right, under the First
Amendment to be served
kosher food in the Ashland
facility and, that if this
was not possible, they be
allowed to remain at the
Manhattan facility where

frozen kosher prepackaged
meals could be brought in.
Judge Griesa said .a pris-
oner can retain only those
constitutional rights "which
are not inconsistent with his
status as a prisoner and
with the legitimate penolog-
ical objectiN4s of the correc-
tions system." He ruled that
the Federal Bureau of Pris-
ons was "entirely correct in
refusing to purchase special
food for one group of prison-
ers."
Lewin said he would file
an appeal in the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the Second
Circuit here on the constitu-,
tional issue.
The Griesa ruling may
have a bearing on a simi-
lar demand by Rabbi Meir
Kahane, the JDL founder,

who has been held in a
one-year term for violation
of parole.
Under an order from Fed-
eral Judge Jack Weinstein,
Kahane is permitted to
leave the facility daily to ob-
tain kosher food and to wor- _
ship. Judge Weinstein has
reserved decision on a re-
quest by federal attorney's
for Kahane's- immediate
transfer to a federal prison
at Allenwood, Pa., where
Kahare- said he could not
obtain kosher food.
