He was also instrumental in having evacuated a captain of one of these ships, who was ailing. The Spanish ambassador gave further proof of his interest in the welfare of the beleaguered community of Americans by seeking and obtaining permission to re-open two American Schools. In return, the appreciative Americans made Ambassador Sagaz honorary chairman of their board. Despite rising tensions in the Middle East and pessimistic reports about the possibility of some kind of settlement, Ambassador Sagaz's family is now back in Cairo. Perhaps it Is an optimistic sign of the times. CHINCH BUGS? SOD WORMS? phone TOMASELLO 585-2551 1 SP77 k. Ill tf TP T I A T T I I I UkJ I N swVv xbMWUJ yTONIGHT Is 9 PM I kL I I z. . , 1 By LEO. D. HOCHSTETTER CAIRO, (NANA) Although tho Egyptians are not believed to be engaged in transplant surgery, there is a man in Cairo those days with three heads. At least that is how some diplomats on the Nile describe Angel Sagaz Zubelzu, the Spanish ambassador to the United Arab Republic. The reason (or this multi-domed appellation is that in addition to his own country, Ambassador Sagaz represents two other nations with whom Nasser has broken diplomatic ties the United States and 1 Portugal. Actually, the break with Washington is more in the nature of a simple fracture, since there is a continuation of cultural and consular exchange between the two countries. To carry out these activities, seven American diplomats and eighty clerks work under the jurisdie" tion of Sagaz in the so-called American interests section of the Spanish embassy in Cairo. This American delegation is headed by a durable professional diplomat, Donald Burgus. Nevertheless, Ambassador Sagaz bears important responsibilities, for on behalf of his American constituents, all official dialogue and formal notes from the Egyptian foreign office destined for Washington or the other way around, must go across his desk. The Spanish envoy's background serves the United States in good stead since, in addition to doing a tour of duty in Washington, he was head of the Spanish Foreign Office's North American desk. In these posts, Ambassador Sagaz acquired both sympathy and understanding for the United States. , Material evidence of his friendliness to Americans was the recommendation he made to his own government that the customary charges involved in representing another country be waived in this case a recommendation that Madrid followed. Sagaz's goodwill and'efficlen-cy were further demonstrated In a dramatic manner when he personally took charge of the evacuation of the American community on June 9th, 1967, during the crisis with Israel when anti-American feelings were running high. Making arrangements with Egypitan authorities, he procured a special train in the dead of night, loaded with Americans, and moved them from Cairo to Alexandria, escorted by the Spanish military attache. Busses and private cars were obtained for stragglers. To give the incident a personal touch, Ambassador Sagaz's wife and four children were included among the evacuees. Invoking a rarely used ambassadorial prerogative, Senor Sagaz ordered two Spanish freighters lying in the harbor of Alexandria to delay their sailings so that they could be boarded by the evacuees. An American vessel was sent from a Greek port for the same purpose. During this period, the Spanish diplomat scarcely slept as he directed the operation, which involved making currency declarations, listing personal belongings, rounding up abandoned cars, and even turning off refrigerators In empty homes. Americans who could not find their passports were given Spanish documents. They were not the only ones to be the beneficiaries of these services. Some 150 Sephardic Jews, who had fled the Spanish Inquisition and had found haven in Egypt, were also granted Spanish documents to enable them to flee from Egypt. Ambassador Sagaz had personally arranged this with the Egyptian authorities. Many years before, surveys had been made in Egypt and the records entitling such persons to Spanish nationality were found on file in Cairo. These rights were graciously extended by Madrid to these people who had fled from Spain centuries before. Ambassador Sagaz lost no time In making the appropriate arrangements with the Egyptian authorities, who agreed that these Sephardic Jews could depart with newly Issued Spanish papers. In some cases, the beneficiaries of this agreement were not even aware of their rights as all of their records had disappeared over the centuries. Ambassador Sagaz's care and concern extends even to the Suez Canal, where two American freighters have been Immobilized ever since the Israeli-Arab war. He visits the crews from time-to-time, and last Christmas brought such gifts as cakes and 312 Clematis 833-4661 1 W 22" J The Best P,QCe t0 ShP After A" 'M (rfft' Sik ij Frw ParkingCITY and ALL RIGHT 3 70l0afiLl r - i ''$yA I tVV ZZyJL ' jfP aldo Defray and N.
