Tuesday Evening, June 11, 1957. Situation in Israel Is One Of Truce Rather Than Peace By K. C. THALER United Press Staff Correspondent GAZA FRONTIER, Israeli Side, (UP) — In the communal dining room of a farming settlement on the Gaza frontier, a young Jewish, boy shoved aside his plate, picked tip his rifle and'want out to his tractor. "We had a short respite from this after we beat the Egyptians in the Sinai campaign," he said "But now," he added, brandishing his rifle, "we can't take any chances any mere. Sometning might happen any time again." This feeling that "something might happen any time again" is the mood of Israel today. The situation is one of truce rather than peace. UNEF On Guard Across an almost invisible partition line, a Yugoslav and a Norwegian contingent of the United Nations Emergency Force are standing guard, flanked by Bedouin tribesmen grazing their herds in the scorching sun which bakes the Gaza Strip. The dividing line, drawn with a plough long ago, is overgrown. At the frontier, an 18-year-old Israeli soldier remarked, "It's quiet now, but for how long?" On the farm, a settler pointed proudly to an engine from a sian • made tank captured in the Sinai campaign. The engine now helps to generate current for the settlement. "I guess," said the settler, "this is an example of turning the sword into the ploughshare." But Israel today relies for her peace on the sword. There is no mistaking that. Government leaders stated frankly, that the 'coun- ry must maintain a high degree of readiness in the absence of a peace settlement which will end the state of war still existing with the Arab states. Settlements Go Up Meanwhile, new settlements go up all over the country and along the 600 miles of borders exposed to the neighboring Arabs. At night these settlements are lit by search lights arranged in a circle. Guards scan the horizon for infiltrators. The Israeli government blames '-he United Nations — and also the United States — for allegedly failing to provide adequate safeguards against a resumption of frontier raids. Spokesmen charge that the' present situation has handed Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser the chance to resume the raids any time he chooses. "The U.N. force is a symbolic array, but it is not effective," one high government representative said. Dollar Thaw Pleases Israeli officials are nevertheless pleased by the easing in the dollar freeze which is expected to bring a multi - million dollar loan from the Export - Import Bank in Washington for use in expansion, irrigation and handling an immigration wave. One hundred 'thousand immigrants from Europe are expected this year, possibly halt a million in the next decade. | This, the defense effort and the . fact that the big hotels in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv are nearly •empty of the tourists who once Civilians Overseas Are Not Subject to Trial by Military WASHINGTON (UP) — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that; American civilians with the armed j forces overseas are not subject to! military trial. ". . . Under our Constitution courts . of law alone are given | power to try civilians for their offenses against the United States," the tribunal held in a far-reaching, 6-2, opinion. In other major decisions, the court: —Gave new hope to doomed convict - author Caryl Chessman by ordering, 5-3, new state court hearings to determine whether there were any inaccuracies in a trial court reporter's-record of his trial. Chessman is in the death house of San Quentin Prison in California. —Ruled unanimously that a Teamsters Union official was within his rights in invoking the Fifth Amendment's protection against self-incrimination when asked by a grand jury to tell the whereabouts of books and records in his' .keeping. The court heid that "com-! •;pulsory production of corporate or I associate records by their custodian is readily justifiable," but a witness need not tell where the records are kept.

Covert, Atlanta, Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Americans Will Spend More Than a Year Ago ' NEW YORK (UP) — Americans are going to shell out more than a quarter of a trillion dollars this year for goods and services. This record 277 billion dollars will go for everything — auto- biles, houses, clothes, ice cream sodas, haircuts, vacations and even a few bets on the ponies. It averages about $1,600 for every man, woman and child in the United States. It will be about 10 billion dollars more than'we spent last year. It will help keep the wheel of industry humming along at a prosperous clip. Increased government and business spending will add fuel to the rise which is expected to carry the gross national project — the value of all goods and services produced — to a new peak of 435 billion dollars this year, Consumers Most Important Consumer spending is the most important cog in the wheel — six times the amount to be spent on industrial expansion and three times the outlay by government. In most cases, the consumer appears to be better off financially than ever before. Disposable income is at a record high. Savings and employment are near their best levels. The economic outlook, on the cloudy side a few months ago, has brightened considerably and many experts look for better business in the months ahead. All these factors, economists predict, will combine to keep consumers in a buying mood. More Expansion Suen Industry is expecaed to spend some 37 billion dollars for expansion, a gain of 2 billion dollars over 195G. Federal, state and local governments will shell outi around 106 billion dollars up more \ than 6 billion' dollars from last year. The picture is not all rosy, however. The economy (his year has been going through a rolling ad- justment — some industries declining and some advancing. Tho over-all result has been a general levelling off in the economy. Inflation is another bugaboo. Economists figure that at least half the gains in spending this year will be the result oi higher prices. The other half will reflect increases in unit volume. Living costs in the United States have hit new all - time highs in each of the past eight months, and recent wage and price increases leave little hope of an early reversal. Infant Taste is gone!
