WASHINGTON (AP)-The United States is rushing
four special early warning radar planes to Saudi
Arabia to help strengthen the oil-rich country's air
defenses against a possible spread of the war bet-
ween Iraq and Iran, the Pentagon announced yester-
In announcing the shipment of the highly
sophisticated planes, U.S. officials said the
deployment is temporary and stressed that the move
does not mean Washington is taking sides in the Iran-
"THE UNITED STATES government
unequivocally reaffirms its position of neutrality,"
said Pentagon spokesman Thomas Ross.
"This deployment is purely for defensive purposes.
It is designed to track aircraft for the purpose of
providing additional warning for Saudi Arabian
defenses," Ross said.
Saudi Arabia has indicated its support for Iraq in
the fighting with Iran. However, U.S. defense of-
ficials said they have no reason to believe the Saudis
will be relaying to Iraq any military data provided by
the American radar planes, known as AWACS.
ROSS TOLD A Pentagon news breifing the decision
to deploy the aircraft was made "in response to a
request from the government of Saudi Arabia."
Defense officials said one of the big AWACS planes
already had taken off from Tinker Air Force Base in
Oklahoma and that the remaining three would be
leaving for Saudi Arabia within hours.
They said the planes were to fly directly to Saudi
Arabia with in-flight refueling, covering the distance
in 17 to 18 hours.
THE DEPLOYMENT will involve a total of about
300 military personnel, defense officials said. They
added that American cargo planes would be making
flights to deliver supplies to Saudi ground facilities
being used by the AWACS aircraft.
The AWACS planes, which are modified Boeing 707
jets, carry a flight crew of four plus up to two dozen
Air Force technical personnel to monitor radar and
other electronic gear.
Defense officials said the AWACS planes would be
flying their early warning patrols wholly within Saudi
airspace. They declined to identify where in Saudi
Arabia the planes will be based.
U.S. OFFICIALS said the planes, with a "look
down" radar range of 250 nautical miles, will be par-
ticularly helpful in bolstering Saudi Arabia's defen-
ses against any possible attack by low flying aircraft.
The range of the sophisticated planes gives them
the capability to monitor the vital Strait of Hormliz,
through which much of the oil exported from the
Middle East to Western countries passes.
Meanwhile, Congress was told that the war should
not send U.S. fuel prices soaring unless the conflict
spreads beyond Iran and Iraq.
Plentiful worldwide crude oil supplies-estimated
by an Exxon official at 500 million barrels abqve
normal-should cushion the loss of the 3 million
barrels per day normally exported by Iran and Iraq,
a House Government Operations subcommittee was

e n A
pressed to finish work by midnight
yesterday on an emergency-spen-
ding bill needed to avert a shutdown
of nearly the entire federal gover-
nment, except activities to protect
"life and property."
By late yesterday afternoon,
congressional negotiators had
resolved all but one difference in the
House and Senate versions of the
bill, but the two sides refused to
budge on that remaining
issue-public funding for abortion.
EVEN IF THE negotiators settle
that final sticking point, the bill
must still go back to the House and
Senate for final approval and then to
President Carter for his signature.
The stopgap spending bill would
finance the government between the
midnight deadline-the end of fiscal
year 1980-and Dec. 15.
Syria calls for expulsion
of Israel from U.N.
urged the General Assembly yesterday
to throw Israel out, but Arab, American
and Israeli diplomats gave the effort
little chance. President Carter said
such an action could jeopardize future
U.S. participation in the United
In an address to the 35th session of the
U.N. General Assembly, Syrian
Foreign Minister Abdul Halim Khad-
dam urged the body "to reconsider
Israel's membership in this inter-
national organization because it has
constantly and systematically and ob-
stinately been flouting the decisions of
this assembly and organization."
The proposal follows one made at a
recent 39-nation Islamic conference at
Fez, Morocco, to rally enough East bloc
and Third World votes to challenge
Israel's credentials to sit in the General
ON MONDAY, Carter said in a New
York that if the hardline Arab expulsion
threat was carried out against Israel, it
''would raise the gravest questions
about the future of the General Assem-
bly and further participation of the
United States and other nations in the
deliberations of that body."
Similar action, initiated by black
African states, succeeded against South
Africa six years ago. Although the
Pretoria government lacks the creden-
tials to sit in the General Assembly, it
still is a nominal U.N. member state
and can take part in Security Council
debates on matters of direct concern
such as proposed independence for
South African-ruled South-West Africa,
also known as Namibia.
Procedural issues, such as approval
of credentials, can be decided by a sim-
ple majority in the Assembly, where
each country has one vote.
COMPLETE expulsion from the
United Nations would require action by
the 15-nation Security Council, where
the United States can block such a
Khaddam urged the Assembly to take
"decisive action against Israel"
because "the United States has been
able to paralyze the Security Council
through the abuse of its right to veto."

Another Israeli source expressed the
belief it was too late for Syria to suc-

bly's credentials committee already
had recommended approval of Israel's
continued right to sit in the chamber. A
full Assembly vote on credentials is ex-
pected in mid-October.
