Israel, Jordan Battle in UN,
Refuse to- Modify Positions

Israel and Jordan, meeting face-
to-face in Security Council de-
bate, stuck to their tough no-
compromise positions yesterday
on a Middle East settlement.
Israeli Foreign Minister Abba
Eban declared that what his gov-
ernment sought "and what the
international community should
promote is not a meaningless for-
mula" but rather "the conclusion
of peace treaties by direct nego-
tiations between Israel and th'e
Arab states."
He said a peace settlement ne-
gotiated directly between the two
sides was "not only possible but

in public statements of Jordan's

tory seized in the six-day war last
Israeli withdrawal, he said, is a
prerequisite to peace. If the
United Nations fails to act, he

warned, we will have to take the
necessary action "to liquidate this
Israeli aggression.'
Eban said Israel would main-
tain and respect the cease-fire
that ended the June fighting
"until it is replaced by peace
treaties ending the state of war
and ensuring a stable and mu-
tually guaranteed security."
He once again flatly rejected a
resolution submitted to the coun-
cil by India, Mali and Nigeria,
because, he said, it. suggested
"that Israel should move from the
cease-fire lines without a peace

treaty defining permanent and
secure frontiers."
He also criticized a rival U.S.
resolution for failure to "give suf-
ficient weight to the concept of
negotiation and agreement." The
Israelis, however, are believed will-
ing to accept the U.S. formula.
Rifa'i told the council that the
Arab attitude was not the sourcej
of instability in the Middle East.
He contended the instability
stemmed from Israel's "record of
expansionist policies."
The Security Council will meet
again Wednesday on the Middle
East question.

Four from Intrepid

U.S. Role in ietnarm
TOKYO ()-A Japanese peace
group announced Monday the de-
fection of four U.S. Navy men
from the 7th Fleet carrie Intre-
pid because they oppose Ameri-
can involvement in Vietnam. It
said the men had asked for po-
litical refuge in Japan or any
other country not involved in the
The Japan Peace for Vietnam
Committee showed a movie in
which four Americans in civilian
clothes read statements which
said they did not want to take
part in the war. The Intrepid is
stationed off Vietnam and its
planes fly bombing missions over
the North.
The peace group identified the
men as John M. Barrilla, 20, an
airman; Richard D. Bailey, 19,
airman; Michael A. Lindner, 19,
airman apprentice, and Craig W.
Anderson, 20, airman apprentice.
In the film, entitled "The In-
trepid Four," the youth who
identified himself as Barrilla said
he had lived most of his life in
Baltimore, and the one who said
he was Anderson listed his birth-
place as San Jose, Calif. The
other two made no mention of
their home towns and the peace
committee said it could not give
Joint Statement
In the film Bailey read what
was described as a Joint state-
ment of the four.
"We believe that further esca-
lation in Vietnam will eventually
lead to a direct confrontation
with China, resulting in a world
war," the statement said.
"We oppose the war as true
Americans, not affiliated with any
political party.
"We face military disciplinary
action as a result of our beliefs;
therefore, we s e e k political
asylum in Japan, or any other
country not engaged in the war."
The peace committee said the
film was made Nov. 1.
Young in Japan
The Japanese peace group said
a representative of a group it
called "The American Peace
Movement" came to Japan last
week and talked to the men It
identified him as Prof. Ernest P.
Young of Dartmouth College. The
group also said the word of the
defections had been sent to David
Dellinger in the United States.
Dellinger heads the U.S. Na-
tional Mobilization Committee to
End the War in Vietnam. He
helped organize the antiwar dem-
onstrations outside the Pentgon
in Washington last month.
The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo said
it had not been informed of the
four men's defection. The Japa-
nese Foreign Ministry said Japa-
nese law agencies would search
for the men and arrest them if
the U.S. government asks that
this be done.
AWOL from Intrepid
A U.S. Navy spokesman said the
four men named by the peace
committee were absent without
leave after the Intrepid left for
Vietnamese waters Oct. 25. She
had been in Yokosuka to give her
crew a week's recreation and rest.
In Baltimore, Barrilla's sister-
in-law, Mrs. Frank Barrilla, said
Barrilla's mother had received
mailed notification Monday of
her son's absence from duty and
that she was "very much upset."

Lockman, a Philadelphia Ne-

Sept. 15 to go to Vietnam because
he believes the war is illegal.
He was convicted on two counts,
one carrying a penalty of five

The entire proceedings were
marked by clashes between MPs

inside and outside of the court.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. {gP-About
400 members of the Yale Univer-
sity faculty have signed a "peti-
tion for peace" that calls on
President Johnson to halt the
bombing of North Vietnam "un-
conditionally and at once."
Johnson was urged in the peti-
tion to bring an "end to destruc-
tion and this nightmare war"
through negotiations with Hanoi
and the National Liberation
Front. ,
The petition appeared in
Thursday's edition of the Yale
Daily News, the undergraduate
newspaper. The signers represent

about one-fourth of the estimated
2,000 faculty members.
The Vietnam conflict, it said,
is "pulverizing" Vietnamese cul-
ture and is "contrary to the best
interests of the United States."
The petition asks Johnson to'
represent "the vast majority of
the people of the United States
who elected him because they
wanted peace and trusted him to
keep it. That same majority wants
peace and magnanimity now.
The signers include Dean Louis
H. Pollack of the Yale Law
School and author John Hersey
who is master of Pierson College.

Inside, the trial continued de-
spite the disturbances.
Lockman, whose mother and
fiance were present, was asked,
"How do you plead?"
At that point a Negro girl in
the audience -screamed, "How can
you begin?"

The Chrysler contract closely
parallels that won by the UAW
at Ford where workers got rough-
ly a dollar an hour more in wages
and fringe benefits over the pre-
vious Big Three level of $4.70 an
hour. The UAW's contract at
Chrysler also will give Canadian
workers wages equal to the U.S.
scale by mid-1970.
Reuther told delegates to the
union's national Chrysler coun-
cil Saturday to get their members
back to work.
"If they (union members) want
the leadership of this union to
fight their battles when the com-
pany is wrong, then they have to
expect the leadership of this un-
ion to stand up to them when
they're wrong," Reuther said.
"They're wrong."
The council voted to recom-
mend that the membership ratify
the new national contracts. No
ratification date has been set.
GM plants affected by the one-
day walk-outs were in Saginaw,'
Pontiac, and Doraville, Ga., a GM
spokesman said.
In Saginaw, two of five GM
plants, which make steering gears,
were idled yesterday. A spokes-
man for UAW Local 699 said the
union was protesting the firm's
scheduling of overtime.
