WASHINGTON (P) - Widen-
ing public protests against the
Sentinel anti-missile system ap-
parently were significant in the
Nixon administration's decision
to hold up work and take an-
other look at the project. ,
The protests, centering in a
half dozen metropolitan areas
chosen for anti-missile installa-
tions, have resulted in a surge
of letters to congressmen and
Critical mail reaching the
Pentagon, some refered by the
White House, also reflects con-
cern of people living elsewhere
in the country.,
The letters express worry
about the growth of nuclear
weapons and any possible nega-
tive effect the U.S. anti-missile
system would have on arms con-
trol talks with Soviet Union.
The rising public objections
are credited with winning some
recruits to a Senate group which

last year failed in a series of
legislative efforts to block funds
for the Sentinel. They hope to
succeed this year.
Even some previously ui-
swerving supporters of the Sen-
tinel, such as Chairman L. Men-
del Rivers of the House Armed
Services Committee, are show-
ing signs of uncertainty,

significant number of newspa-

the Sentinel program began late
last year to advance reasons fcr
The analysis, prepared last
month, said "the actual selection

They did not suggest that
there was anylinkup, and noted
that concerns varied.
Basically, scientists who have
led the opposition in Chicago
and Detroit have concentrated
their attack on two main points:
-That the presence off the
Sentinel system's Spartan mi.-
sile would present a potential
danger of accidental nuclear ex-
plosion of its warhead, packing
the explosive equivalent of a
million pounds of TNT.
-That the presence of anti-
missile complexes would actual-
ly increase the dangers to a city
. by making it a military target
for enemy missiles.
Army authorities counter that
there is no danger of an acci-
dental atomic explosion.

These officials contend the
real motive of the scientist lead-
ers of the organized protests
is grounded in their general op-
position to nuclear weapons and
their fear of a new arms race
According to Pentagon au-
thorities, objections in the Seat-
tle area come largely from con-
servationists. They say that real
estate issues are involved in
protests in the Los Angeles and
San Francisco areas.

ISRAEL'S COALITION GOVERNMENT was shaken
yesterday by reports that Prime Minister Levi Eshkol does
not want to keep populated areas of Jordan captured in
Eshkol .reportedly said in interview that Israel "does not
seek any part of the settled area of Jordan's west bank."
The right wing Free Center party put forward a motion
of no confidence which will be debated in the Knesset today.
The rightist Gahal party, which represents about one
quarter of the electorate demanded Eshkol to verify if the
statement was accurate.
Eshkol's office said that the statement was not in the
copy of the interview they had, but did not deny that Eshkol
made the remark.

Political observers noted that each time Tho has returned
to Hanoi there have been shifts in Hanoi's stands.
His departure follows confirmation last Week that North

command is preparing to start its long delayed winter-
