NEW YORK - The city of
New York is throwing a party.
And Mayor Abraham Beame,
every bit the gracious, glowing
host, is doing everything possi-
ble to make his guests feel
right at home.
"HELLO, and welcome to our
great city," Beame said yester-
day, greeting a less than inti-

for a choice that might be the
most important of his life. He
also said that in his polls, two

Scranton praises Israel's raid

sador William Scranton yesterday called
Israel's rescue raid into Uganda "a
combination of guts and brains that has
seldom if ever been surpassed."
Referring to the pro-Palestinian hi-
jackers who had seized an Air France
jet and its passengers, Scranton demand-
ed that the U.N. Security Council "do
everything within its power to insure
against recurrence of this brutal, callous
and senseless international crime of hi-
jacking-the crime which gave rise to
the Israeli action.,"
NEAR THE END of the day's debate,
British Ambassador Ivor Richard said
he had received the "disturbing news"
that Uganda was expelling a British
diplomat in Kampala and that "serious

threats" had been made against Britons means of "assuring the safety and re-
in Uganda. liability of international civil aviation."

He said the diplomat was the man
who had seen Vora Bloch in a hospital
after Israeli commandos raided Uganda's
Entebbe airport and freed the other hos-
tages. Uganda claims Bloch, who had
both Israel and British citizenships, had
been released from the hospital where
she was treated for a stomach illness
and had rejoined the others.
Richard told the council Britain had
"little doubt" that Bloch, 76, was dead.
He accused Uganda of failing to investi-
gate her disappearance.
SCRANTON spoke to the council after
Britain and the United States introduced
a draft resolution that would condemn
hijacking. It also would enjoin the inter-
national community to s e e k further

Nonaligned members of the council
submitted a resolution that would "con-
demn Israel's f I a g r a n t violation of
Uganda's sovereignty" and demand that
Israel pay compensation to Uganda.
The conflicting resolutions set the
stage for a confrontation between West-
ern states and the Third World and
Communist members.
COUNCIL SOURCES said this would
likely end with the defeat of both reso-
