i-B hin aihj Thursday Morning, June 5, 1975 mpletes Fullback By I'nited Press Inlrrnntlonal Israel completed withdrawal of half its troops and most of its weapons from the Sinai Desert frontlines a day ahead of schedule Wednesday and said it expects Kgypi to reciprocate by allowing Israeli cargo to transit the Sue/ Canal The Sue/. Canal is due to reopen Thursday to international shipping for the first time since the 1967 Middle Kast war, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has said he would be aboard the first ship making the transit. Israeli Defense Minister Shimon Peres said the thining out of armed forces and firepower in the Sinai which began on Tuesday was completed on Wednesday. The move was designed as a unilateral goodwill action timed to coincide with the canal opening Peres said there was a fair chance of settlement of the Middle Kast crisis if Egypt showed a willingness to compromise as well as negotiate. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, returning on President Ford's flight from Europe to Washington, said "conditions exist in which there could be progress" in the Middle East, but he added, "I'm not saying there is going to be progress." Foreign Minister Yigal Allon, speaking to parliament in Jerusalem, said that while Israel welcomed the reopening of the canal, it expected something in return from Egypt for the Israeli withdrawal. "It was not without cost on the part of Israel or an empty gesture," Allon said of the withdrawal decision. "But it was worth taking the risk. "We hope that the government of Egypt will know-hmv to appreciate our recent move and will not be tempted to take any measures which would force us, contrary to our intentions, to retreat... "I would emphasize that it is our full right to expect with the renewal of international navigation in the canal, the full freedom of passage for our cargoes will also materialize," Allon said. Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin announced the thinning out its frontline forces in Sinai on Monday while President Ford and Sadat were meeting in Salzburg, Austria. Sadat welcomed the Israeli announcement as a possible step toward peace in the Middle East. A senior American official with the Kissinger party said Ford's meeting with Sadat was "very positive" and could lead "to a new period of Middle East diplomacy." Ford said he would offer a Mideast peace plan at the end of June or early July following talks in Washington with Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. A senior U.S. official said the United States considers the Middle East the No. 1 problem since a future war there could bring another Arab oil embargo and economic crises to the United Slates, Europe and Japan.

Britons To Vote On Market Issue LONDON (UPI> — Britain's Common Market referendum battle ended Wednesday with pro-Market leaders predicting economic disaster if the nation votes to pull out of the nine- nation European Economic Community and opponents claiming public sympathy is swinging their way. PrimeMinister Harold Wilson has called on Britain's 40 million voters to say "Yes" or "No" in a national referendum Thursday to the question: "Do you think the United Kingdom should stay in the European Community (Common Market)?" "If the 'Noes' win, Britain will wake Monday morning in a state of economic confusion and danger," said Home Secretary Roy Jenkins, leader of the campaign to keep Britain in the Market. But Trade Secretary Peter Shore, an anti-Market member of the deeply divided Wilson Labor government, said: "I believe the British people have rumbled the pro-Marketeers and will say decisively 'No' tomorrow." Opinion polls and British newspapers were virtually unanimous in predicting a decisive "Yes" vote. But because this was the first national referendum in British history, leaders of both camps agreed it is almost impossible to predict how the nation, in fact, will vote. Neither side ruled out an upset result. Former Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath took Britain into the Common Market in January, 1973. He said entry svould make Britain a member of an economic and trading bloc of 250 million people —most powerful in the world. But Wilson argued the membership conditions were loaded against Britain. "lie said, too, that although an overwhelming majority of parliament endorsed British entry, the country as a whole had not been given a say on an issue vitally affecting its future. During the past year the Wilson government negotiated improved terms and in April a majority of the cabinet recommended their acceptance by the nation. Then Wilson ordered the referendum on the improved terms and said the nation's verdict would be final and binding. But Wilson's Labor party remained sharply divided. He allowed his ministers to campaign either for or against a "Yes" vote. At least seven have campaigned for the "No" camp. Marketeer supporters made a last minute appeal for a high turnout. Jenkins said: "The need for a high turnout becomes increasingly necessary. The 'No' men have mostly, I believe, given up any real hope of victory. What they hope for is a relatively low turnout and a relatively narrow margin on the basis of which they can prolong the struggle."
