WASHINGTON (A')-The Israeli
troop crisis raced toward a climax
yesterday with the prospect that
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
would decide today the United
States stand on proposed United
Nations sanctions against Israel.
Here are the developments:
1. Secretary of State John Fos-
ter Dulles invited congressional
leaders to an extraordinary Sun-
day conference at which he would
tell them what line the United
States will take toward Israel in
the United Nations General As-
sembly debate tomorrow.
Eban En Route
2. Israeli Ambassador Abba
Eban was en route to Washington
from Jerusalem with a detailed
report from Prime Minister David
Ben-Gurion for President Eisen-
hower on the Israeli government's
present position on the troop with-
drawal dispute. Eban will meet
with Sec. Dulles today in advance
of the congressional conference.
3. President Eisenhower has re-
ceived a new personal and secret
message from Ben-Gurion, The
White House confirmed that it
reached the President Friday. It
is understood to make a new ap-
peal for United States guarantees
of Israel's security interests in the
Gaza Strip and Gulf of Aqaba be-
fore Israeli troops are pulled out of
those areas.
4. The Israeli government was
reported seeking British and

French support for its terms in an
effort to bring pressure against the
United States and thereby break
down President Eisenhower's in-
sistence that Israeli troops must
be withdrawn from Egypt uncon-
5. Strong opposition continued
in Congress to any move to impose
sanctions on Israel.
Latest manifestation of this op-
position was a statement by Sen.
George Humphrey (D-Minn) that
he would seriously consider resign-
ing from this country's UN dele-
gation if the UN votes for sanc-
tions. Americans for Democratic
Action wired Dulles that "sanc-
tions can only increase war ten-
sions throughout the world."
Actually no officials here seem-
ed to think an Israeli reversal was

No public announcement of the
cabinet crisis has been made.
The Informant, who was present
at the meeting of the cabinet, said
Franco told the ministers their

He thanked them for their col-

tinue in their posts until the new
cabinet is appointed. This is ex-

in, the cards but they remained
hopeful that Eban might come up
with some idea from Ben-Gurion
which would move the situation
Sec. Dulles was reported pre-
pared to tell Eban that the United
States was absolutely firm in its
determination not to enlarge its
assurances and to emphasize that
unless Israel withdraws its troops
promptly the United States will
support a UN move to "exert
pressure" on Israel to force the
troops out.
Administration authorities were
reported considering measures-
for use if necessary-which would
cut off most of the private funds
which Israel receives from the
United States.
The State Department estimates
these at about 100 million dollars
a year in the form of Israeli bond
purchases or outright contribu-
Doctrine Opposition
The total U.S. government aid to
Israel was valued by the same of-
ficials at about 50 million dollars
a year, but the bulk of aid ship-
ments has been suspended since

Middle East resolution as "dan-
gerous" and a tragedy of "wasted
effort and energy."
Sen. A. J. Ellender (D-La) called
the administration's record in the
Middle East "a gigantic failure"
and the Eisenhower resolution
"about as useless as a wart on1
one's nose."
He said he would oppose it
as "unnecessary, dangerous and
shortsighted" when it comes up for
a vote in the Senate.
Kennedy Criticizes
While Sen. Ellender spoke out
in a radio address recorded for
broadcast over Louisiana stations,
Sen. John Kennedy (D-Mass) gave
his views in milder speech in
Springfield, Mo.
Sen. Kennedy said he would vote
for the resolution because it would
help assure the world of "Ameri-
can concern" over what happens
in the Middle East.
But he questioned what "all the
fuss and the furor" has been about
when, he said, the resolution has
nothing to do with the crisis "that
threatens a new Arab-Israeli war
over the Gaza Strip and the Gulf
of Aqaba."

Docks Humg.
NEW YORK (A') - Docks from

Docks in Portland, Boston, Prov-

pitched into the task of reducing
a huge backlog of cargo.
However, New York Harbor still
was beset by a strike of tugboat-

To Employ
WASHINGTON ()-Senate in-
vestigators said yesterday they
will use secretly recorded gangster
conversations and testimony from
prostitutes, gamblers and others
to show whether some West Coast
officials of the Teamsters Union
had ties with the underworld.
Chairman John McClellan (D-
Ark.) said his special Senate rack-
ets investigating committee has
"pretty conclusive proof" about
the relations between Seattle and
Portland, Ore., racketeers and offi-
cials of the union in both cities.
The committee, conducting a
nationwide search for evidence of
gangster infiltration and corrup.
tion in organized labor and indus-
try, has selected the situation in
Portland as the starting point for
its public hearings,
The Senate has voted $350,000
to finance the investigation.
'Muscle In'
Sen. McClellan and Robert F.
Kennedy, the committee's special
counsel, said they expect to show
that racketeers and Teamsters
Union officials from Seattle have
attempted to "muscle in" on Port-
land rackets also involving team-
sters officials and racketeers.

group of gangsters," Kennedy said.
He and Sen. McClellan said they
have subpoenaed some 20 witnesses
for days of hearings on Portland.
The witnesses include some pub.
lie officials, union officers and per.
sons Kennedy described as."profi-
cient in gambling and bootlegging
who make it a profession, and
persons proficient at prostitution."
He refused to identify witnesses
this far in advance lest, he said,
"there be an attempt to intimidate

thony Nicoletti, financial secretary
of the Suffolk County, N. Y., Car-
penters Union.
Sen. McClellan said the Portland
investigation has progressed to a
point showing attempts from
Seattle to "muscle in" on Port-
land rackets, including efforts to
"control" gambling, prostitution,
pin ball operations and illicit after-
hours drinking spots,
"I think the evidence will show
a public official involved," he said,
and added that it also "involves
teamsters union officials."
The Portland City Council had
requested the investigation. A
grand jury in Portland already
has handed down a series of on-
spiracy indictments against Dist.
Atty. William Langley of Multno-
mah County and others. Another
grand jury investigation is under
way there.
