EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE,
Calif. (AP) Spaceship Columbia
crowned a busy, bittersweet mission
yesterday, bursting like a like a silver
wraith through mottled California skies
to its second flawless desert landing.
With Joe Engle in command and
Richard Truly beside him, the winged
shuttle hit Earth right on time, right on
target: the oil-black centerline on wide-
open Rogers Dry Lake in California's
said Mission Control.
For Engle and Truly it was a perfect
ending for a troubled msision, halted
three days early only because an elec-
- trical generator broke down. Crowds,
estimated at 220,000 people, cheered
"Go" asColumbia passed overhead on
its-final approach to runway 23.
The astronauts headed quickly for
home in Houston while technicians
swarmed over the first ship to go into
space twice. After two hours, Columbia
was towed to its hangar, accompanied
by a convoy of service trucks.
"THE BIRD is real solid," said
Engle as the 106-ton ship emerged from
a 17-minute blackout and speeded
across the Pacific at five times the
speed of sound.
"It's a great day for the Ace Moving
Co.," shuttle communicator Rick
Hauck said from Missin Control,
Houston. When the shuttle becomes
operational after two more test flights,
it will be a delivery van, hauling up
satellites, scientific cargo and secret
"It's a great day for the United States
and the space program," said James
Beggs, head ' of the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Mideast expert says
Israel fears Saudis
may be new U.S. ally.
By SEAN ROSS
Israel's main fear in the recent sale of
sophisticated AWACS radar planes" to
Saudi Arabia is not so much of a poten-
tial attack from the Saudis but more a
fear of being replaced as the chief U.S.
ally in the Middle East, according to
Max Holland, a Middle East affairs
Some opponents of the AWACS sale
had contended that Saudi Arabia might
use the planes in an invasion of Israel or
that the equipment might fall into the,
wrong hands were there to be a
revolution or coup in the country.
Speaking Friday night at a two-day
conference on the Middle East
however, Holland said that Israelis are
more concerned that the sale may be
part of a grand U.S. strategy to even-
tually build American military bases in
Saudi Arabia, making the oil-rich
nation the new primary U.S. ally in the
"THE REAGAN administration has
made clear its determination to make
Saudi Arabia the bastin of U.S. in-
terests ip the Middle East," Holland
said. "This is what scared the Israelis
so much.' Israel is afraid that Saudi
Arabia will become our most favored
'Holland traced the rift back to the
OPEC oil embargo of 1973 when the
United States, he said, began to feel
torn between its traditional support of
Israel and its increasing reliance on
Saudi oil. "After 1973,, Israel became
much more intent on becomiig part of
America's political domination of the
Middle East," he said.
But the United States sought more in-
fluence in the strategically important
Middle East and- made overtures to
other nations, including Egypt and
Saudi Arabia, complicating the U.S.
relationship with Israel. U.S.
initiatives in the Middle East were fur-
ther complicated by the Iranian
revolutin and the subsequent taking of
53 American hostages in Tehran,
"The Carter Doctrine marked
America's will to intervene directly
again in the Middle East," he said.
YET, HOLLAND, a Middle East Af-
fairs specialist with the American
Friends Services Committee, warned
that the AWACS bargain may backfire
for the Saudis, alienating some of the
Saudis' Arab allies.
"Saiudi Arabia is making a big
mistake by heading into a military em-
brace with the United States," Holland
said. "The possibilities are very good
that these weapons (the AWACS) could
be used against Saudi Arabia."
Holland made his remarks during the
opening day Friday of a two-day
session on "The Tradgedies of Lebanon
- A Search for Solution," billed by the
AFSC as a "Middle East Peace Con-
ference." Holland defended the im-
promptu switch in the topic of his lec-
ture, which was delivered in Ann Arbor
Friday night before the conference
moved to Birmingham for more sessions
yesterday, by declaring that the
AWACS sale is "typical" of U.,S.
foreign policy initiatives in the Middle
"Everywhere you look in regard to
America and the Middle East, our
resonse has been military, even when
the problems are socio-economic
out of .town?
