later that there was no in-
crease in the U.S. com-
mitment of $1 billion in
military, credits to Israel
for fiscal year 1977 which
began on Oct. 1 and that
Congress would have to
'approve the transfers of
weapons.
Edward Sanders, de-
puty national campaign
director for Democratic
Presidential candidate
Jimmy Carter, said in
Chicago that it was "a de-
ception for the Ford Ad-
ministration to claim cre-
dit now for releasing
military equipment that
it had denied Israel for
many months."
"It is gratifying that
the delay in sending Is-
rael military hardware
long withheld will appa-
rently now be ended. But
one cannot help wonder
why the President has
suddenly decided to re-•
lease equipment hereto-
fore denied to Israel,
three weeks before the
elections. I cannot believe
this is only ,a coinci-
dence," Sanders said.
In Jerusalem, Premier
Yitzhak Rabin informed
the Cabinet that the Un-
ited States has responded
favorably to recent re-
qUests by Israel for cer-
tain "ultra - modern
weapons systems and
technology."
Rabin told the Cabinet
at its weekly session that
all arms promised Israel
by the U.S. were deli-
vered and are being deli-
vered on schedule.
In a related develop-
ment, Allon told the Un-
ited Nations General As-
sembly_ that his country is
prepared "now, even be-
fore peace is made," to
negotiate with the Arabs
for a balanced limitation of
the inflow of arms into the
Middle East "in such a
manner that the burden
will be lightened for all
without affecting ad-
versely the security and

defensive capacity of any."
But, Allon added, as long
as the Arabs continue to
arm themselves with
highly sophisticated mod-
ern weapons, "Israel is
compelled to keep up and
will keep up."
In a Major 40-minute
policy address, Allon
dealt with the issues of
settling the Arab-Israeli
conflict; the Lebanese
crisis; terrorism; the UN
system; racism; Soviet
and Syrian Jewry; and
other important issues.
Israel, Allon declared,
is ready to participate in a
reconvened Geneva peace
conference. He em-
phasized, however, that it
would do so only in accor-
dance with the "original
composition" of the
Geneva conference "at
any mutually acceptable
time." This was a refer-
ence to the parties invited
to Geneva by the UN in
December 1973.
Meanwhile, in a study
carried out by an Ameri-
can agency concerned
with questions of war-
readiness and military
capability, it is reported
that 47.5 persons out of
every 1,000 Israelis
served in the army.
The comparative fi-
gures for Syria are 18.5
per 1000 and for Egypt
11.5 per 1000. The United
Arab Emirates show 78.3
per 1,000 serving in the
army.

Care of Books

Take particular care of
your books. Cover your
shelves with a fine
covering, guard against
damp and mice. Write a
complete catalog of your
books and examine them.
When you lend a book
make a memorandum and
when it is returned,
cancel it. Each Passover
and Sukkot call in your
books that are out on
loan.
