Soviets reinforce influence in Middle East


MOSCOW (P) - A year after
the six-day Arab-Israeli war,
the Soviet Union looms over
the Middle East with greater
influence than ever before.
Its warships have become a
political as well as a military
reality in the Mediterranean,
its weapons have moderhized
beaten armies, its military ad-
visers are better entrenched
and more influential, and its
political support is a mainstay
of several Arab foreign policies.
This position was salvaged
from Arab disillusionment with
Soviet inability - or unwill-
ingness - to save them frpm
defeat last June.
Plunging heavily with war
material and diplomatic ac-
tivity into the angry aftermath
of the war, Soviet leaders won

the kind of Middle Eastern role
that Russian tsars and com-
misars used to dream about.
But there are also weak-
nesses in the position. For all
its power and influence, the
Soviet Union has not been able
to bail its friends out of their
continuing troubles.
The Israelis still hold their
conquests in Syria's Golan
Heights, in Old Jerusalem, on
Jordan's west bank, in the Si-
nai Peninsula, and on the Suez
Canal's east bank.
There are indications now
that the Russians might be re-
stricting their supply of arms
to Arabs in an effort to pre-
vent a new explosion, with all
its dangers of escalating into a
Soviet-American confrontation.

In public, the Russians say
the only solution to the situa-
tion created last June is a po-
litical one.
There seems no reason tp
doubt that this also is the Rus-
sian position in private discus-
sions with Arabs. But it might
not always be easy to tell this
to Arabs, who become frustrat-
ed waiting for diplomacy to
produce results and are tempt-
ed to prepare for another at-
tempt to crush Israel by force
of Soviet-supplied arms.
In particular, it might not
be easy for the Russians to
keep the Syrians cool.
Syria has publicly rejected
the political solution line. It
has had a role in Al Fatah
guerrilla raids against Israel,
which could spark another war.

Yet the Soviet Union con-
tinues to support Syria with
economic and military aid. It
is a weakness of Soviet influ-
ence that the Damascus regime
must be backed, because if it
fell a less pro-Soviet regime
could be expected to take pow-
er. But Damascus cannot be
brought to follow the cautious
Soviet line for the area. '
Some here believe the Rus-
sians had a role - whether
deliberate or unwitting is un-
clear - in sparking the war of
last June 5-10 by feeding Syria
and Egypt exaggerated reports
of Israeli military preparations.
Those reports encouraged
Arab preparations and the
closing of the Gulf of Aqaba,
in turn leading to Israeli

Most important, the U.S.S R,
gave the defeated Arabs the
kind of big power backing that
neither Washington nor Lon-
don was willing to give, lead-
ing the attack on such Israeli
actions as the recent Jerusa-
lem military parade.
Yet, the Soviet Union is also
on record as stressing "the need
.for recognition by all U.N.
members in the Middle Eastern
area of the fact that each of
them has the right to exist as
an independent national state
and live in peace and security."
But it is a point of cautious
realism that does little to re-
strict Arab dependence upon
Soviet support and therefore
Arab susceptibility to Soviet

WASHINGTON (?) - President
Johnson submitted to Congress
yesterday a five-point program
reaffirming his administration's
dedication to freer trade and call-
ing for development of a long-
range policy to guide trade ex-
pansion to the 1970's.
Left unanswered, however, was
the administration's intent or lack
of it, to propose some sort of tax
rebate for exporters and a border
tax on imports.
In a special message to Con-
gress, Johnson again opposed the
wide variety of import quota bills
pending in Congress but said
nothing about a possible border
tax to help stem the dollar drain.
U.S. officials said the nation's
trading partners are still consid-
ering the entire range of border
tax problems.
The administration's plans, if
any, for'a border tax undoubtedly
will come up when the House
Ways and Means Committee open
trade hearings on June 4.-
The President coupled his trade
message with a new appeal for

the 10 per cent income tax sur-
charge to strengthen the U.S.po-
sition at home and in world
He recommended this five-point
program for adoption this year:
1. Extend through June 30, 1970,
the president's authority to nego-
tiate tariff cuts as specific cir-
cumstances warrant.
2. Eliminate the American sell-
ing price on some chemical im-
ports which produces a higher
tariff. This bases the tariff on
American prices rather than the
cost of the product to the U.S.
3. Approve a specific appro-
priation do cover the U.S. share
of expenses in the General Agree-
ment on Tariffs and Trade.
4. Set up a system of, aid for in-
dustry and workers hurt by in-
creased imports stemming from
those tariff cuts. It would be based
on aid now available under the
,agreement between the United
States and Canada which ended
auto tariffs at the manufacturer's
5. Extend aid to U.S. industry
and workers under the American-
Canadian agreement for three
more years through June 30, 1971.
Under the Kennedy Round
agreement, the United States will
cut tariffs an average of 35 per
cent over five years on thousands
of products in return for similar
concessions by other countries.
Officials said the President will
soon sign an executive order for
long-range study of future trade
policy, a review already begun by
Ambassador William M. Roth,
Johnson's special representative
for trade negotiations.

PARIS (P)-Young Frenchmen
trying to cause a revolution insist
they have no single headquarters.
But if they did, it would be the
24-hour-a day political meeting
installed in the Odeon Theater a
few blocks from the Sorbonne.
The meeting goes on in the or-
chestra, boxes and balconies. Be-
hind the scenes is literally the
headquarters of the Odeon Com-
mittee of Revolutionary Action.
"The purpose of the revolution-
ary movement," the committee
says, "is to create a revolutionary
situation . . . consequently, the
only action that is effective and
useful to the revolutionary move-
ment is an action of destruction,
'a permanent fight gainst the
present society."
The committee has no visible
chief, and members do not like
to give their names. But leaders
are clearly emerging. One is a 27-
year-old journalist who wants to
be known only by his first name-
Alain says the committee in-
cludes people who belong to sev-
eral revolutionary parties, Com-
munists' among them, but no one
is allowed to join as a represent-
ative of a party or a trade union.
The committee opposes all such
organizations as part of the so-
ciety it wants to destroy.
Similar committees exist at the
Sorbonne, at an annex on the Rue
Censier and at the University of
Nanterre, where Daniel Cohn-
Bendit, best known of the student
leaders, was a student. He has now
been expelled from France.

More attention is being focused
on the Odeon, because of its cen-
tral location. Nanterre is in the
suburbs, and the Rue Censier is
some distance from the city cen-
Alain insists there is no ques-
tion of leadership \by 'one com-
mittee, and that there is close
contact among them. The stu-
dents pride themselves on being
individualists and the anarchists'

black flag flies over the Odeon
and other occupied buildings.
Next to it is usually a red flag,
which in Europe is associated with
all leftist movements-not just
the Communists.
Young revolutionaries seized the
Odeon on the night of May 15.
There was no resistance. Almost
at once the nonstop political meet-
ing was on and, the committee
was at work in the offices.
