Jan.». mt fSchlesinger confident U.S. could sustain Israel in war By DREW MIDDLETON New York Times Service N E W YOKK-Defense S e c r e t a r y J a m e s R . Schlcsinger s a y s he is confident t h a t the United States can provide the resources to sustain Israeli fighting forces should a f i f t h M i d d l e E a s t w a r begin. A m e r i c a n arms production is up, the secretary said, p a r t l y because of the weaknesses displayed in defense industry when the administration sought to resupply Israel with tanks and other major weapons a f t e r the war in October 1973. Responding to questions after a speech to the Economic Club of New York Wednesday night. Schlesinger. while conceding the ;high attrition rate of modern war. said he did not - t h i n k a new conflict would . ' l a s t m o r e t h a n t h r e e weeks. ; He also reaffirmed the m i l i t a r y feasibility of intervention i n M i d d l e Eastern oil areas to pre- v e n t national economic s t r a n g u l a t i o n -- a n idea advanced by Secretary of S l a t e Henry Kissinger, and he said that such act i o n w a s " w i t h i n t h e power" of the U.S., de- scribing his comment as "a statement of f a c t . " His words, he caution cd, must not be taken as reflecting current American policy, for m i l i t a r y actions would be considered only in the gravest circumstances. The defense secretary, in his remarks, was pessi- m i s t i c about the balance of power between the U.S. and the Soviet Union in the Middle Eastern theater from Syria southeast to the Gulfs of O m a n and A d e n a n d t h e I n d i a n Ocean. At present, he said, the U . S . e n j o y s a relative a d v a n t a g e over the Soviet Union because of the sup e r i o r m o b i l i t y of its n a v a l and air forces. However, he went on, t h e continued expansion of Soviet airborne forces, long-range aircraft a n d submarienes and surface vessels, could bring about a loss of the American advantage by the end of the decade. . I n c r e a s e d a i r b o r n e s t r e n g t h in Soviet Central Asia, within range of the M i d d l e East, h a s b e e n stressed recently by well- informed b u t unofficial sources. Some estimates are t h a t there are four or five airborne divisions-- 2S.OOO to 30,000 men- in the area. There is one air- b o r n e division, 13,000 men, in the U.S. Schlesinger stressed the danger of the Atlantic alliance's defensive position in Europe, arising from "the broadening of Soviet power in the geographical sense" w i t h the expansion of the Soviet Navy. A c r e d i b l e d e f e n s e against aggression in Cent r a l Europe depends on seaborne s u p p l i e s a n d reinforcements, which are vulenrable to surface and undersea a t t a c k , he pointed out. The Soviet Union does not have that problem. W i t h t h e n a v y ' s strength due to dip below 500 ships in the active forces, a level lower than at any time since Pearl Harbor, the secretary did not f i n d a ship-to-ship comparison with the Russians "comfortable." As for Central Europe, where the Soviet threat inspired the creation of the North A t l a n t i c Treaty Organization 26 y e a r s ago, Schlesinger said the m i l i t a r y balance could be retained unless the West was prepared to improve equipment and raise force levels. w m KNIT YOUR OWN AND SAVE!

The sale will mark the first time the United States has supplied advanced ballistic missiles to the Middle East, although it has sold Israel fighters and attack bombers capable of carrying nuclear bombs. The Soviet Union in the last year has provided Syria, and presumably Egypt, with short-range ballistic missiles--a development that led to intensified pressure from Israeli to obtain the Lance missiles. The Lance, which is just being introduced in the U. S. Army, is a highly mobile missile with about a 70-mile range. It is known' as a "dual-capable" missile, meaning it can carry either a conventional or nuclear warhead. Thus far, the missile has been regarded by the Army as primarily a nuclear weapon, largely because of congressional doubts that the weapon would be effective, in terms of its cost, with a conventional warhead. V.S. reported ready to include Russia in Mideast negotiation* BERNARD GWERTZMAN New York Time* Service W A S H I N G T O N Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was reported Thursday to have told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that once the latest r o u n d of Israeli- Egyptian negotiations was concluded, the S o v i e t U n i o n w o u l d probably have to be includecTin the next phase of Middle East peace efforts. According to s e v e r a l participants at the closed- door committee hearing Tuesday, Kissinger seemed to be saying that his p e r s o n a l m e d i a t i o n b e - t w e e n I s r a e l a n d t h e Arabs that has dominated Middle E a s t diplomacy for the past year would have to be supplemented in the subsequent stages c o u l d no l o n g e r be excluded. Kissinger also was reported to have said he thought,the chances were better than even that he would succeed in bringing a b o u t a s e c o n d - s t a g e Israeli-Egyptian accord in the Sinai. As the result of talks in Washington l a s t w e e k w i t h I s r a e l i . F o r e i g n Minister Y i g a l A l l o n , Kissinger a g r e e d to return to the Middle East in a few weeks to try and spur progress in the next stage of negotiations with Egypt. He is expected'to spend about a week in the area starting Feb. 7. ; ^ Thursday, in a speech in San Diego, Underscore^ lary of State for Politicaj Affairs Joseph Sisco, who is Kissinger's top deputy on Middle East affairs, said the talks with Allon were "useful" and added that "while a number;of key problems remain ·, to be solved, some progress was made in defining; a conceptual framework for the next stage of the negotiating process." ; a wider involvement, w h i c h t h e Russians ^--LOOMS FOR OFFICE SPACE?Prim Location in Bixby Knoflt »rta Aporl Irom the tongeition and parking problem! of down{own it Cerrilos Square.
