In a last minute development,
Sen. William Knowland of Cali-

"It is doubtful if agreement
on the Suez Canal Zone, long a
controversial issue between Bri-
tain and Egypt, will be reached
under Nasser's rule as soon as it
would under the more conserva-
tive Naguib," he said.
Whether Egypt can or will re-
store constitutional government
and continue reforms under the
new rule is also a crucial issue, ac-
cording to Prof. Efimenco. Naguib,
he explained, had set up a military
dictatorship for only a three-year
period. "At the end of this three
years, in 194&6, the present method
of government must be re-assessed
to determine whether civil govern-
ment will be restored."
* *' *
IN SYRIA, President Shishekly
came into power through a coup
d'etat in 1949 and assumed com-
plete authority by 1951. After 1953
Shishelty became President and
declared he would act constitu-
tionally. "In fact, however, he kept
all his former power and remained
a military dictator, unable or un-
willing to return to civil govern-
ment, Prof. Efimenco noted.
"At present there seem to be
two separate revolts in Syria-
one in Damascus, the other in
Aleppo," he explained. The Ale-
ppo revolvt is led by the very
powerful semi-feudal Druz fam-
ily from Southern Syria and
many of Shishekly's personal
political enemies who had been
exiled to Bierut. The Damascus
revolt is led by Army dissidents.
"The old feudal clique favors
civilian government and would
probably restore to power the elder
politicians who ruled Syria be-
tween 1946 and 1949. If this feu-
dal clique emerges as the victor of
the two Revolutionary factions,"
he explained, "the whole trend of
reform may have failed in Syria."
