Sen. Hubert H. Hum-
phrey (D-Minn.), floor man-
ager of the Senate legisla-
tion, described it as "the
most significant revision of
legislative authority for for-
eign military assistance and
sales since enactment of the
Mutual Security Act more
than a quarter of a century
ago."

Saudi Arabia has some 5,-

many more in Jordan in
support of "The Common
Arab Front" against Israel.
But Alfred C. Atherton
Jr., assistant secretary of
state for near eastern af-
fairs, testifying before the

tions Committee's subcom-
mittee on international pol-

denied that Saudi Arabia's

Hebrew Leap Years Defined

It is necessary to have
leap years on the Jewish
calendar.
Basically, the Hebrew
calendar is a lunar calendar
since the beginning of each
month occurs when a "new
moon" appears on the hori-
zon. A dozen of such months
complete a year of lunar
months.
However, the Hebrew cal-
endar cannot ignore the so-
lar cycle because the sea-
sons of the year depend
upon the solar system which
depends upon the relative
position of the earth to the
sun. The Bible has, for ex-
ample, ordained that the
Passover holiday take place
in the spring agricultural
season.

A dozen Hebrew lunar
months fall short of the
number of days in a solar
year. Should this be al-

sover, for example, could
come out in the fall and
even later. Thus an extra
month is added to the He-
brew annual calendar to
help maintain this bal-
ance.
While this extra month
was added originally by the
observance of the develop-
ment of the spring crops
which was reported to the
Rabbinical Court, who in
turn made that particular
year a leap year, later a
fixed mathematical/astro-
nomical formula was de-
clared by which the Hebrew
calendar still operates, thus
adding an extra month in
specified years on a regul'
basis.
