UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. ()--
A complex territorial tangle snarls
the Middle East in the wake of
the Arab-Israeli war, as diplomats
foresee arduous negotiations cen-
tering on what happens to the
land gained by military conquest.
For obvious reasons Israel is
likely to want to keep some of
the territory she gained. For sec-
urity reasons she would like to
straighten out at least part of the
bulge on her east which has been
Jordanian since 1950, and retain
the narrow stretch on her south-
west frontier known as the Gaza
Strip.
If Israel did these two things
she would be adding more than a
million Arabs to her population of
2.5 million. Many of those added
would be Arab refugees, implaca-
bly bitter enemies of Israel.
The likelihood is that much of
,the hard bargaining will take
place at the United Nations. This
is where the current attempts to
arrange a cease-fire are centered.
And the world organizations has
had an intimate association with
the Middle East quarrel ever since
it began in the mid-1940s.
The fruitless effort of the Se-
curity Council to agree on a call
for withdrawal of the combatants
to their original positions in the
early hours of the fighting Mon-
day was a clear forecast of the
difficulties ahead.
Israeli officials at the United
Nations, including Foreign Min-
ister Abba Eban, were tight-lipped
about terms for a settlement. They
said these matters could wait until
the fighting stopped.
In Tel Aviv Israeli leaders, in-
cluding Premier Levi Eshkoisand
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan de-
clared their war aims did not in-
clude acquisition of any additional
territory.
"We have no aim of territorial
conquest," Dayan said.
Wednesday, after Israeli forces
had completed the seizure of the
Old City of Jerusalem from Jor-
dan, Dayanedeclared Israel would
not give upany part of the city.
"We have returned to the holiest
of our holiest places,, never to de-
part from it again," he told troops
at the Wailing Wall, the last
vestige of Solomon's S e c o n d
Temple.
Of transcedent interest to Israel
is the Tiran Strait at the mouth
of the Gulf of Aqaba, which con-
trols sea traffic to the southern
Israeli port of Elath.

Egypt for years has barred Is-
raeli shipping from the Suez
Canal, and Elath is Israel's only
outlet to the Indian Ocean and
the Far East. Ninety per cent of
her oil is brought in through the
port.
Egyptian occupation of com-
manding positions at Sharm el
Sheik overlooking Tiran backed
Egypt's threat to close the gulf to
Israeli shipping and was a key

World News Roundup

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The White
House has acknowledged the
Washington-Moscow "hot line"
has been used by President John-
son and Premier Alexei M. Kosy-
gin several times this week-most
recently yesterday' morning after
a U.S. communications ship was
attacked by Israeli torpedo boats
off the Egyptian coast.
Press secretary George Chris-
tian said the direct link between
the two capitals, installed on Aug.
30, 1963, never had been used be-
fore on serious business.
Johnson, he said, sent a mes-
sage to Moscow on Thursday
morning telling of the ship attack
so the Soviet Union would under-
stand why carrier-based aircraft
of the 6th Fleet were scrambling
and heading toward the stricken
vessel.

contribution to the rising tensions
that led to war Monday.
Israel reported the capture of
Sharm el Sheik during its 1956
war with Egypt but gave it up to
the UN force. The UN troops re-
mained until last month, when
Egypt got their withdrawal.
Israel is unlikely to give up
Sharm el Sheik this time without
foolproof, ironclad international
guarantees for transit rights.

An Israeli officer said, "Until

"We cannot go on living under

The U.S. Embassy in Cairo an-

The embassy anticipated there

Dne battleground report said
many Arab tanks were simply used
as artillery pieces, and dug turret
deep into the sand.
Other Egyptian troops operated
out of concrete pill bxes and slit
trenches in the dunes of the pen-
insula. The fortifications even-
tually trapped many Arab troops.
Israel's use of reservists was no
handicap, U.S. officers said, be-
cause these irregulars are kept at
a high state of readiness and mo-
tivation. Mobilization exercises are
held frequently and all units can
be assembled, equipped, and ready
for combat within 48 hours.
Both reserve and regular Israeli
officers serve three to five-year
terms with rigorous selection and
highly competitive promotion.
