S ht rSees have created an emotion- J™-^*™^. *£ $"% offer of trms. The Kremlin leadership seemed bent on fomenting at the least, a high degree of ten sion, or at the worst a local war Such a war would do much to and other West to bulwark the Orient, the a potential a , against invasion or jumping-off place for conquest. The Western Powers have tried to keep a balance between the Israelis and their Arab neighbors. But recently a new element was rnmrmmist arms have been shipped to Egypt and othe Arab states, threatening to tip the balance and set off a war neither responsible Arabs nor responsible Israelis really want. Slow in Coming In 1923, the League of Nations granted Britain a mandate over Palestine. In Britain's mandate was a declaration by Foreign ec- retary Lord Balfour that Britain looked with favor on a national Jewish home in Palestine. It was slow in coming. Underground violence broke out after World War n. Britain, threw the whole Palestine issue into the lap of the United Nations in 1947. The U.N. came up with a plan for partition of Palestine between Arabs and Jews—two independent states^-with Jerusalem an international city. Britain annov»ced plans to surrender her mandate May 15, 1948. Just one day before that deadline, David Ben-Gurion, now Israel's premier oroclaimed the birth of the state of Israel. Haganah. the steeled underground . organization which fought the British, burst from its hiding places and was transformed overnight into an efficient army which brought to 'a standstill the troops of five surrounding Arab states. TJ.N. efforts brought about an armistice in 1949. Under the 1947 U.N. partition plan, Israel would have had about 6,500 square miles. At the end of the hostilities, Israeli forces had overrun territory, including the Negev Desert, totaling 7,800 square miles with a population of almost 800,000. There was no peace, however, The Arabs soon were to demand what they had rejected before the war broke out—partition Of Palestine more or less on the lines of the 1947 U.N line. Israel would make no territorial concession. Meanwhile, a cancer was growing in the Middle East, As many as 900,000 refugees, driven by the war from their homes in Palestine, are camped in hovels in Arab states. The Arab states do not want to assimilate thes people, on the ground this would be final recognition of the Israeli conquest of the land where they once lived. Israel, once willing to take back a token number of them— perhaps about 100,000—by now is unwilling to take any at all. The the balance of arms in the area and preserve the slender thread of peace. Late in 1955 the Communist bloc upset the balance. Egypt negotia cut off the West from the entire area. Bui even the Kremlin would be cautious about all-out war in the Middle East. It carries the danger of World War HI—the war for which the Communis' Social Drinker .iked Company ALBUQUERQUE, N. M. Ifl — A ,'arrulous fellow fell in line with axpayers waiting to make out their returns at the Internal Rev- nue Service office. Joking with those nearest him, reached the head of the line. 'hen, he headed to a rest room. In \ moment he returned and took his urn at the end. Again he reached the head of the uie. Again he left for the rest •oom. That kept up for a couple of hours. Finally a government worker railed him into the rest room and watched him lift a bottle of liquor rom his coat and take a swig. The explanation? "Well," said the mystery man, 'you see I don't like to drink alone, and I saw this line of people, so I just fell in." upscv viie uaiaiiw;. i^&y HV n^awviu.- • — ed a deal with Czechoslovakia for world Is not yet ready.
