Egyptians back almost to the line
of the Suez Canal, since the loss of
its advance base along the Israeli
frontier would leave the Egyptian
army stranded in the desolate
wastes of the Sinai Desert.
Israel's number two objective
might be to eliminate the deep
Arab pocket which thrusts into
Israel from Jordan. The goal here
would be to establish a boundary
along the Jordan River.
If the Arabs took the offensive
Western Military experts believe a
concerted campaign might take
shape as follows:
Egyptian armies, striking from
the Sinai advance base and from
the El Auja demilitarized zone,
would sweep north along the coast
from the Gaza Strip toward Tel
Aviv and northeast through Beer-
sheba toward Jordan to pinch off
the Israeli triangle which juts like
a wedge of pie down to the Gulf
Jordanese forces would have a
two-fold objective: A breakthrough
drive to the sea at or near Tel
Aviv, designed to divide Israel and
thus facilitate piecemeal conquest;
a double-pronged drive to pinch
off Israel's Jerusalem salient.

Works of Art
A catalog of art works by
Carleton Watson Angell, artist for
University Museums, was recently
The catalog of more than 600
works of art includes the title and
date of each work, as well as a
description and its original owner.
Whether Angell is actually in-
terested in art for art's sake "is
somewhat doubtful. He is more
interested in making forms which
put across a fact dealing with
nature and man," he says.
Angell's works in, the museum
are not only sketches of what
animals may have looked like, but
these works are exact replicas as
far as can be revealed from present
knowledge. Proportions of the
model are taken with precision
from the fossil.
As the work goes on, it is in-
spected by various members of the
Museum staff who areauthorities
on the different animals.
Angell came to the University
as Assistant Instructor of Free-
hand Drawing in 1922. He became
Museums Artist in 1926.
