top Carter Administration
official assured Israel last
week that the U.S. will not
use aid as a form of political
pressure. James McIntyre
Jr., director of the Office of
Management and Budget,
made that pledge after a
meeting with Premier
Menahem Begin at which
the issue of Israeli settle-
ments in the occupied Arab
territories was raised.
The American official is
understood to have reiter-
ated the U.S. position that
the settlements are an obs-
tacle to peace.
McIntyre, accompanied
by a delegation of four Con-
gressmen, members of the
House Budget Committee,
were in Israel for a detailed
study of its aid needs. He
told reporters that "the U.S.
does not intend to use its aid
as a way to pressure things
that should be handled
through diplomatic means."
There was speculation
here that punitive U.S. aid
cuts may have been hinted
in the apparently stiff letter
Begin 'received from Secre-
tary of State Cyrus Vance in
connection with the
Cabinet's decision favoring
the establishment of a
Jewish presence in Hebron.
At his meeting with the
Ameiican delegation,
Begin reportedly de-
fended his settlement pol-
icy on security grounds.
Rep. Robert Giaimo (D-
Conn.), chairman of the
House Budget Committee,
told reporters afterwards
that the Hebron affair and
settlements in general were
regarded as prejudicial to
peace. But he affirmed
McIntyre's assurance that
this would not affect U.S.
aid to Israel.
However, Giaimo made it
clear that Israel's requests
for increased aid stood little

Israel Silent

on Arms to Egypt
Top Israeli officials have re-
frained from public com-
ments on the high level of

U.S. military aid for Egypt.
But there is concern here,
particularly over the
sophisticated weaponry, in-
cluding F-15 and F-16 air-
craft, that the Carter Ad-
ministration plans to pro-
vide to Egypt.

Assistant Secretary of
Defense David McGiffort
was due in Israel this week
after a visit to Cairo. Yosef
Maayan, director general of
the Defense Ministry and
Brig. Gen. Zvi Shor, the
ministry's financial ad-
viser, are expected to go to
Washington next week to
discuss Isaraeli military
needs. The subject of
American military supplies
to Egypt is believed likely to
come up in the course of
these meetings.

Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman reportedly in-
tends to ignore the issue,
arguing that what mat-
ters is the strength of the
Israeli Air Force, not the
Egyptian. That view is
supported by govern.
ment officials who be-
lieve that Israel cannot
launch an all out cam-
paign against selling
warplanes to Egypt at a
time when the two coun-
tries are about to ex-
change ambassadors.
However, one source at
the Foreign Ministry was
quoted as saying, "This is a
scandal. Never before has
Israel kept quiet over such a
large scale airplane deal
with Egypt. This silence
will cause us a lot of dam-

Brown Sees Bilateral Treaties,
More Military Aid for Mideast

Defense Secretary Harold
Brown advocated U.S.
bilateral treaties with Mid-
dle Eastern Countries while
supporting the long-held
Carter Administration in-
sistence on a "comprehen-
sive settlement" between
Israel and the Arab states.
Appearing Tuesday be-
fore the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee to justify
the Administration's mili-
tary assistance programs,
Brown testified that the
U.S. should proceed with
bilateral agreements in
treating the Southwest
Asian situation, including
the Soviet invasion of Af-
ghanistan and the problems
in Iran.
He observed, in this con-
nection, that the process of
reaching agreements is
complicated by the Arab-
Israeli conflict but he noted
in the course of his three-
hours of testimony that the
political situation is the
basis for the U.S. seeking
the use of facilities and not
bases in the Middle East
area and that the U.S. seeks
to keep a "low profile" on its
military presence.
Asked later by the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency
whether his views con-
flicted on the kinds of
agreements, Brown replied
that the "comprehensive
settlement" is "a separate
issue" and deals with the
"peace problem" between
Israel and the Arab states."
"It is in no way to contain
Soviet expansion," Brown
In his prepared statement
to the committee, Brown
justified U.S. support for Is-
rael, Egypt, Saudi Arabia
and Jordan. "Israel is heav-
ily dependent on United
States arms," Brown said.
"It has not been able to turn
to any other major arms
supplier since the oil em-
bargo in 1973. Its equip-
ment needs far exceed its
resources and the U.S. has
provided foreign military
sales financing each year
since the 1973 war.

Maruauna Used

for Contraception

TEL AVIV — Certain de-
rivatives of marijuana
delay ovulation in labora-
tory animals, according to
Dr. Daniel Ayalon of Ichilov
Hospital here. The delaying
of ovulation could give the
drug a potential use as a
birth control method.
Dr. Ayalon said that by
injecting chemicals found in
the canabis plant he de-
layed ovulation in rats for
24 hours and in monkeys for
60 days. Dr. Ayalon called
his findings preliminary
and noted that no research
has been done on humans.
