N« Mall Subaeriptloni accepted whan earriw aantaa i» avalUhla Friday Afternoon, June 23, 196V Celanese Land Gift An Education Assist WASHINGTON--This will be remembered as the week that lacked grace. All week the American and Soviet governments, like a cou- ple of society matrons who didn't relish each other, couldn't make a move without their eti- quette books. And for most of the week the delegates to the United Nations went through a heavy-footed waltz, solemnly pronouncing the obvious while they pondered and debated Moscow's request to brand Israel an aggressor against the Arabs. Soviet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin, who came to New York for the U.N. meeting, and President Johnson had much to discuss, if they could get togeth- er, that affected the world, in- cluding Vietnam and the Middle East. the midst of a sage to Congress last-January, "a transition from narrow na- tionalism to international part- nership." It would seem from all this that Johnson and Kosygin would have had no difficulty arranging to meet on this, their first close- up chance to do so. Johnson hasn't visited the Soviet Union as President and Kosygin hasn't been here before. The -announcement by the Cela- nese Fibers Company that it is donat- ing 15 acres of land to the Allegany County Board of Education for use gfeal lransil : on .. Johnson said as the site of a new vocational-technical in hjs Slate of the Union mes . center was welcome news, not only to the .board but for all the people of Allegany County. No definite value has been placed on the land but whatever it is, it rep- resents a sizeable sum and makes available to the school board that much more money for the project. As contemplated the center will be used to provide vocational educa- tion for high school students in the county. The building will .also be available to train and retrain adults for more gainful employment. . High school students will continue their affiliation with their present school and will be transferred to the center for training on a part-time basis. s P eecn They will take academic subjects in their home school. By making this land available for the facility, Celanese Fibers has demonstrated it is a responsible citizen of Allegany County and is sincerely interested in the future of our resi- dents and the improvement of the area as an industrial center. But all week there was jock- eying. Prestige was involved. Should Kosygin journey from New York to see Johnson here? Or should Johnson, who is flying o u t . t o York to Kosy- \rt Buclncnld Israel Aid WASHINGTON--There has been some confusion as to how much aid the Soviet Union gave the Arab nations during the ' recent unpleasantness in the Middle East. What nobody knows is that the Soviets' real intention was to help Israel. But they had to do it in such a way that neither the Arab countries nor. the West would find out about it. It seems the Soviet "Union has been trying to increase its arms business to compete with the United States and Great Britain. One of the most likely prospects was Israel, who was finding it hard to get military equipment from the West. The Soviets said they would give Israel everything she wanted, but it would have to be done in such a way that it wouldn't anger the Arab countries or even some Communist-leaning states. Israel said she was interested, but didn't want to do anything to anger the United States, Great Britain and France. Encouraged by what could turn out to be a very good customer, the Soviet Union proceeded to devise a way of get- ting Russian arms into the hands of the well-equipped Israeli army. The big ques- tion was, "How?" Then someone in the Politburo (the Soviets refuse to say who) got a brilliant idea. He told the Israeli diplomats, "We naturally cannot sell you the weapons directly, but why don't we give them to the United Arab Republic and then you can get our weapons from them?" The Israelis pointed out that the U.A.R. might be reluctant to give the Israelis any of their Soviet weapons. The Soviets told them not to worry about it. "Just give us a list of what you need," they said. The Israelis, trusting implicitly in the good faith of the Soviet Union, handed in . a list including tanks, guns, armored cars, jeeps, small arms and, surprisingly enough, six or seven Soviet ground-to-air missiles. A year later the Soviets told the Israeb's that their order was ready and would be delivered in a month. Doing one or the other seems simple enough but diplomats learn not to be simple and John- son and Kosygin are always surrounded by diplomats. Johnson asked Kosygin to vis- it him in Washington. Kosygin said he was on a visit to the United Nations rather than to the United States but he left the door open for Johnson to visit him. : The President reportedly was unwilling'to lend his prestige to this session of the United Na- tions since the U.S. government considers it a Soviet gimmick to regain favor with t the Arabs who felt let down when Moscow failed to support them in the war, as it said it would. The Ar- abs accused the United States of aiding Israel in the war. Kosygin apparently didn't want to irritate them all over again by what might have been regarded as a pilgrimage to Johnson. . '-. Just before Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev arrived in the United States in 1959 for his Camp David meeting with Pres- ident Dwight D. Eisenhower, Eisenhower went to Britain, France and West Germany to confer with the heads of govern- ment there and assure them this country was not going to make any separate deal with the So- viet Union. If Johnson and Kosygin met, while nobody expected them to solve ail problems or even any, they might have been able to start on a solution of some. If they did not meet they weren't helping that transition to inter- national partnership which Johnson talked about in Janu- ary. But for a week the two gov- ernments dawdled. Every day the White House was vague about a meeting and in New York Kosygin was equally blank. As late as noon Thursday the White House said no ar- rangements had been made. Finally, Thursday night came the announcement: The two men would meet each other halfway by having their session today in a New Jersey town called Glassboro. But that wasn't exactly halfway. By road Glassboro is only 105 miles from New York and 25 from Wash- ington. But, since Kosygin wins by only 20 miles in this settlement, and diplomats . haven't . yet figured out prestige by the mile, they may be arguing for a cen- tury over who made 'a conces- sion to whom in this case. Phyllis BmtteU* : Popularity Of Perlliiiie Grows Parents 'trying to raise their teen-age children to be both gracious and graceful probably will not be anxious to have them . read the details of this particu- lar bit of one-upmanship. And, since Johnson has to fly west for his speech tonight'and Kosygin might be flying back to Moscow sometime today or to- night they are not likely to have time at Glassboro to say more than, "It was nice knowing you." Meanwhile at the United Na- tions the diplomats who have had to listen to one-sided ha- rangues all week probably won't have any more to say on their own than a bunch of cigar store Indians. Their governments will do their thinking for them. CAssociated Press) NEW YORK -- According to Alvin Welzel, sex is making a very big comback;on-the Ameri-" can scene.

But A Sword It cannot be said that Soviet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin closed all afcnues that ad to a conceivable peace.: He did in- directly declare for. the existence of IsraeL But he made peace the more difficult by using the United' Nations cynically and dishonestly and at the same time assuring the world that peace is a matter for the powers of the world. The Soviets and the 'French have not ^ paid their bills for the United Nations' [ ,W housekeeping activities in the past. .In- deed, the Soviet Union has declared the General Assembly to have no authority for peace-keeping. It required consider- able cynicism to be in default for peace- keeping assessments and yet demand use of the Security Council and the General Assembly for propaganda purposes. . . There will be no peace in the-Middle East until, and unless, the Soviet Union and the United States can join to bring th« Arab nations to negotiations. The Soviets, at least, did not exercise the Arab myth of insisting that Israel does not exist. But Premier Kosygin did repeat all the old charges of "aggression" ;by the United Stales. Nor did it seem a.contradiction to the Soviet Premier that he should, when.dis- cussing Europe,' say ^that the borders created by the Second World War should remain as they are--the Soviets will hold what they took --but that Israel should "pulL back." · · } · ' ' ' - . . ' '" With equal neglect-of equity, Premier Kosygin declared that Israel refused to accept the first three cease-fire demands, the fact was that Israel accepted but * properly demanded a reciprocal accept- ance by her enemies. It was they who refused. He also branded Israel the aggress'or. Mr. Kosygin joined the Arab-states in condemning the U.S. for "aid"to Israel:" - This would be amusing if it were not so debasihgly arid blatantly hypocritical. Thfc undisputed facts are these: La the past 20 years United States ; aid:to the Arab states has been a little more than three times that given Israel. If assist- ance is limited to military supplies, the United .States has allocated more than twice as much to the Arab states. Israel has received about $27.6 million in tanks, jet" "fighters, and defense. weapons.. King Hussein, whose small country .of Jordan was-created by Winston Churchill, alone has received some $66 million in military aid.. In addition, .U.S. military assistance has gone to Saudi Arabia, Syria,; and Yemen. " · " . - " .

Sure snough, in May Gamal Abdel Nasser closed the Gulf of Aqaba and moved seven divisions of his troops and armor into the Sinai desert. At the same time the Soviet Union accused Israel of being an "aggressor," which was the code name for "customer." On June 5 the Israelis went to collect their equipment in the Sinai desert, where it was conveniently left by Egyptian troops, many- of whom didn't even wail to be tipped for delivering it. The tanks, personnel carriers,'guns and even missiles were brand new. A few were damaged in transit, but by and large the Russians had made everything available as ordered. Some Soviet items accidentally left off the list were delivered to the Israelis, via Syria, a few days later. All in all it was quite a coup for tbe Soviet Union. In one of the great business deals of our time, the Soviets managed In collect twice for the same equipment, firs', from the Arabs and then from the Israelis. As a follow-up it has been reported that the Soviets are sending in new arms and equipment to the United Arab Re- public. What nobody knows is that all they're doing is filling another Israeli order for equipment. One Soviet diplo- mat told me, "By supplying the Arabs with arms, Israel has turned out to be the best customer we've got."
