Geneva talks aim at Mideast pact By United Press International · 'Secretary of Slate Henry Kissinger will meet with Soviet "Foreign Minister Andrei ·Gromyko in Geneva Feb. 17 for 'what could prove to be a key 'discussion about peace in Ihe Middle East. "· Diplomatic sources in London said the Soviet Union wants a firm American commitment that the Soviets will have a full say in any future peace moves. The Kremlin feels Ihe Soviet Union is being edged out despite an agreement after the 1973 l-Arab-Israeli war that the superpowers would act together ·to reach a settlement, the 'sources said. .i' Kissinger told newsmen in .Washington Thursday he may have to call off the unilateral ':U.S. efforts to mediate a Middle .Easl settlement between Israel iand Ihe Arabs if he is unable to .achieve a secondslage mililary .disengagement accord in the Sinai on bis upcoming mission. An Israeli goverment source said Kissinger's warning indicated his "confidence (hat both sides are keenly interested in the success of this effort and il gives them an additional push. "By this statement he actually urges both sides (o cooperate," the source said. "It's kind of pressure on both sides." Sources in Jerusalem said cancellation of Kissinger's diplomatic efforts would probably mean resumption of the Geneva Middle Easl conference. One source said reconvening the Geneva talks would be "a loss of United States exclusivity in the Middle Easl and strengthening of the Russians and extremists in the area." Kissinger plans (o spend two days in Jerusalem at the beginning of his trip, then visit Cairo and Damascus before returning to Israel and going on to Jordan. Saudi Arabia, Bonn. Geneva and London. A government source in Jerusalem said Kissinger expects to hear new proposals on a Welfare plan hangs up on inefficiencies WASHINGTON (UPD - The government said today that its year-old welfare program for the needy, aged and disabled is "still having growing pains. p 1 The Supplemental Security ·'Income program has been ·Coming under increasing fire ·from Capitol Hill for alleged bureaucratic inefficiencies thai .deprive some persons of pro- 'mised aid. Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, D-Texas, said that the United Cerebral Palsy Association in New York had reported two suicide cases due to nonreceipt of SSI checks. "There are still transitional problems, as might be expected in launching any program as vast and ambitious as SSI," said 'Health, Education and Welfare 'Secretary Caspar. Weinberger in . · Ihe first annual report on Ihe program. SSI is the first fully federal welfare program, and some observers were viewing it as a model for a federal takeover of other welfare aid. II replaced former stale programs of aid to the aged, blind and disabled, ·effective Jan. 1, 1974. '. Weinberger said HEW is still '..refining its operating proce- i.flures for Ihe complex system. .which is now being investigated 'nationally by Ihe staff of the ..Senate Finance Committee. r..Despite the growing pains, said Weinberger, about l million more poor persons are getting .aid from the federal government than under the previous system. And they received, collectively, $2 billion more in federal aid lhan they received in 1973 when states were running Ihe programs. Spending on aid to the aged and disabled increased by 59 per cenl from $3.3 billion to nearly S5.3 billion under SSI, he said. Critics say the program has been plagued wilh overpayments, underpayment, no payments, long waiting lines, long periods for processing claims and other problems. "SSI is an administrative disaster," Bentsen said in a recent statement. "It is perpetrating a cruel hoax on some of our most defenseless citizens and drawing the financial resources of our states." troop withdrawal agreement, and lliat there would be "a nuance of pressure" on tin- Israeli government lo come up wilh detailed ideas. foreign' Minister Yigal Alllon has said thai Israel might be willing lo withdraw its troops 20 to 31) miles from tin- present cease-fire line east of (he Suez Canal, but only if Egypt would make substantial political concessions. Egypt wants Israel lo give up Ihe strategic Gidi and Milla Pusses mid the Abu Uodeis oil fields in the Sinai Peninsula, but Israel has said il will not. Tin- Soviets have refrained from publicly criticizing Kissinger's efforts lo arrange a step- by-step peace settlement, but Grnmyko this week attacked the "aggressive policy of Israel, behind which are certain imperialist circles." President Ford has said if Kissinger's efforts prove fruitless, the United States will lake Ihe whole Middle East question to a full-scale peace conference, where the Soviet Union would be assured a leading role as co-chairman. Tass announced Gromyko's visit lo Geneva for (lie meeting with Kissinger without giving any more delails, but the Soviel television broke into a regular newscast lo announce it, indicating Ihc arrangements were made hurriedly. In Cairo, diplomatic sources said Ihe Ar.ib Defense Council has agreed lo give Lebanon $90 million in aid.mosl of it in arms, to help defend its southern region against Israeli attacks on Palestinian guerrilla positions.
