The Syrians have denied that such aji incident even took place and have accused Israel of sending armored cars into the demilitarized zone north of the Sea of Galilee to shell Syrian defensive positions. Thus both are .atlempLinR to establish which to sion from the United Nations.

The House bill which is drawing favor would require binding arbitration of Ihe two manpower issues in dispute--the makeup and size of train crews and the elimination of some 7i2.COO jobs of lire- men on dicscl locomotives.

The plan fell through because the BaaLhist party which is in control in both Syria and Iraq refused to accept the supreme leadership of Nasser, insisting in- Baathist party, a "coffee house theoretician."
