Surely it was not because of Arab-Tsraeli frction that President Eisenhower "overreacted" in May, 1958. and dispatched Marines to Lebanon to prevent a Communist insurrection. Nor are the Arabs and Israel responsible for the exnans'on of Soviet naval strength in the Mediterranean and the recent visit to the Black Sea of two American warships. Need one repeat the obvious? Moscow's imperialist aims in the Middle East have a long history that froes back to the czars. East-West rivalry in the area has merelv srown in intensity since the 1955 summit meeting in Geneva where former Soviet Premier Khrushchev assured Eisenhower of Russia's peaceful intentions. Indeed, had it not been for Israel's amazing six-day victory over the Arabs in June, 19G7. the Russians would today he in a vastly stronger position in the Middle East. This accounts in a large measure for *he upsurge of anti-Semitism in Russia and Communist Poland and the Kremlin's savage attacks on Israel. "It Is not for Idealistic reasons that the United ftates has decided to sell Phantom Jets to Israel," a Western diplomat said. "If Israel did not exist, the Americans would have to Invent It." While the bitter conflict between the Arabs and Israel adds fuel to the Middle Eastern fires, it also prevents a direct confrontation between NATO and the Communists. In the long run. then -without minimizing the intensily of Arab- Israeli antagonisms—it ,s only an agreement between the United States and Russia that could bring some peace to the Middle East. The futile rhetoric in the United Nations only confuses the issues. The Russians, as,usual, are playing a double game. They hone to increase their influence in the Middle East by manipulating their traditional policy of neither neace nor war. They need a "twilight zone" between peace and war which would give them an opportunity to go on strengthening their economic, political WHITE COVERALL — Winter painted its own natural masterpiece along the banks of the Yenisei river at Krasnoyarsk in the central Siberian section of the Soviet Union.

The Russians have their hands full in Czechoslovakia and elsewhere in the Communist world. Peking's latest nuclear explosion was a grim reminder that- Russia's main enemy is Red China. The Kremlin's uneasy rulers also realize the risk of conflict with NATO should their Arab clients get out of hand. According to East European diplomats, it was to warn Egypt's President Nasser against further escalation of Arnb-Is- raelt armed clashes that Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko made an urgent trip to Cain*.

A hunk of plaster the size of a dining-room tabletop fell from the ceiling and crashed among empty seats Jan. 3. The opera house was forced to close down. A technical commission said noise from traffic outside and the resonance of orchestra music caused the slab to fall. To prevent further crashes it decided to have the whole ceiling covered with wood and special soundproof felt. Work started Monday and is expected to last several days. for today's hand. A page and a half was used for theoretical discussion of which spades' East should play from his queen- jack-10 eight combination.
