After Sadat: Trying to
believe in peace
JERUSALEM (AP)-Egyptian flags began to come down
over Jerusalem yesterday as Israel dismantled the largest
security apparatus it ever constructed to protect a visiting
dignitary. And life was returning to normal, leaving an af-
terglow of hope for the future.
"The whole thing was like a dream," said one housewife.
"I can hardly believe he was ever here."
AS THE SIGNS of Israel's welcome for Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat disappeared, the country's leaders
were doing some hard thinking.
Prime Minister Menahem Begin planned to convene his
cabinet Thursday to report on his talks with Sadat and
perhaps to consider his call on Israel to take "hard and
Israelis were left breathless by the 44-hour visit which
Sadat said he "can never forget," the incredible sight of an
Egyptian president heartily shaking hands with Begin and
calling him "iny friend," Sadat joking and trading tributes
with "that old lady," former Prime Minister Golda Meir, and
taking bows before a wildly applauding Israeli parliament.
"I NEVER THOUGHT I'd live to see the day," said one
oung Israeli. "I certainly never thought Golda would."

The King David Hotel, where Sadat spent two nights,
lowered its Egyptian flag, as did the president's house. But
many others still fluttered over the streets.
"WE'RE IN NO hurry to take them down," a city
The visit opened a national debate over whether Israel
was obliged to respond to Sadat's peace gesture, and how.
"The psychological climate between Israel and Egypt has
changed from the roots," said an editorial in Haaretz, a
leadingindependent Hebrew newspaper.
But Haaretz disagreed with Sadat's statement that he had
already done "my share in my decision to come here," and
that it was now up to Israel. "This places too heavy a burden
on us," it said.
"ANYONE WHO believes Israel should show more
flexibility should demand the same from the Egyptian
president," the newspaper said in reference to Sadat's
refusal to budge on the nard issues of Israeli occupied lands
and a state for the Palestinians.
"A measure of momentum has been generated," said the
English-language Jerusalem Post. "But it may easily run out
of steam unless it is refueled, and soon.. .
"The big question for Israel is whether Begin is capable of
taking the necessary hard decisions" and announcing a
readiness to consider withdrawal on all three fronts,
something he has refused to do.
"THE PARTY'S over," said the conservative Maariv.
"The almost inebriate sensation that followed President
Sadat's stay in Jerusalem, the feeling that we were wit-
nessing unreality, the almost surreal atmosphere that
surrounded the high points of the visit-all of these belong to
"We are entering a new waiting period-waiting for Arab
reactions to Sadat's step so as to find out for whom he
speaks," Maariv said.
In Washington yesterday, the Carter administration said
that chances for a lasting peace in the Middle Eastare the
best they've been in nearly 30 years as a result of Sadat's
IN A SPEECH billed by the administration as an impor-
tant statement, Deputy Secretary of State Warren Chris-
topher said the United States will do everything it can to help
Middle East leaders maintain the peace momentum started
by Sadat's journey.
At the same time, Christopher said the Soviet Union has a
joint responsibility with the United States to help move the
Middle East negotiations forward. The Soviet Union, co-
chairman of the Geneva peace conference, has given a
generally negative reaction to Sadat's visit.
"Neither the Soviet Union nor the United States wants a
new war in the Middle East which would carry with it the
threat of confrontation between the two nuclear super-
powers," Christopher said.
"Recognition in certain Arab countries that this is the
Soviet attitude should help hasten peace," Christopher ad-
THE SECRETARY, speaking in San Francisco before the
convention of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations,
made this assessment of Middle East peace proposals:
"I want you to know that President Carter, Secretary
Vance, and those of us involved in making and executing this
country's foreign policy, believe that-despite all the pitfalls
and difficulties-we now have the best chance since 1948 for
real peace in the Middle East."
10,0 in India
NEW DELHI; -India (AP) - In-
dians burned the bodies of cyclone
victims on huge funeral pyres in
southeastern India yesterday as the
death toll from the weekend storm
and tidal waves was reported as at
"Overnight, villages have been
turned into burial grounds," said
Krishna Rao, minister of education
in Andhra Pradesh state, which bore
the brunt of the storm.
HE ESTIMATED as many as 8,000
persons may have perished in 20 vil-
lages in the coastal district of Divi
Taluk when it was swallowed by an
18-foot tidal wave.
The minister, who traveled the
area on foot, said roads were blocked
by masses of uprooted trees and
debris mixed with the bodies of cattle
and human beings.
J. Vengal Rao, chief minister of
Andhra Pradesh, said after a helicop-
ter tour of the stricken area-that he
saw hundreds of bodies floating in the
flood waters. He said the bodies that
could not be identified immediately
were being destroyed to prevent the
spread of disease.
THE 10,000 death figure from the
storm which for two days battered a
250-mile stretch of coastline in An-
dhra Pradesh was given to reporters
at Hyderabad, the state capital, by
P.N. Reddy, state revenue minister.
Meanwhile, weather stations said
another threatening cyclone ap-
proaching the mainland from the
Arabian Sea on the west coast had
weakened to a rain squall.
Weather officials said west coast
areas in the path of the new storm,
including the port of Bombay, would
be spared killer winds.
The cyclone, which hit the south-
east coast Saturday with driving
rain, 95 mph winds and tidal waves,
flooded and washed away houses,
fields, roads, bridges and entire
villages, leaving hundreds of thou-

Thanksgiving parade puts fantasy on wheels
By PAULINE TOOLE
DETROIT - For a short while
tomorrow, a fantasy of giant-size,
paper mache characters and colorful
pageantry will excite the little kid in all
of us. For even though the floats have
become ultra-modernized and the first
J.L. Hudson's parade-goers have long
since grown up and joined the
workaday world, the parade's hypnotic
spendor and dream-like aura remain.
The timeless Thanksgiving tradition
will be revived once again in Detroit for
the 51st time at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow.
"OUR PARADE is for the kids," ex-
plained Charles Gettel, taking a
breather from dabbing a series of
wooden go-carts with blue paint.
"Adults like it too, though-nobody is
ever too old to be a kid."
Gettel is one of 11 full-time Hudson's
employes arduously preparing for the
big day. They seem to enjoy their work
as much as children enjoy the parade.
What is it like to work with toys all
day long, to create the stuff of dreams?
