5B -- Ma I .!*? 1 Sunday Gazette-Mall GOUGH WHITLAM Slim Lead Whitlam Majority Slender SYDNEY. Australia - i.-Pi Prime Minister Gough Whitlam refused to claim victory today in Austrailia's national elections despite early returns which showed his Labor party with a slender lead. Early computer analyses gave Labor 50.5 per cent of Saturday's vote to 44.4 per cent for the opposition coalition. Minor parties accounted for the rest of the vote. Bill Snedden, leader of the Liberal party and Whitlam's major r i v a l , refused to concede defeat. Whitlam called elections midway through his three- year term when the Senate rejected vital monetary hills. The main issue in the cam : paign was inflation, which is running at an annual rate of 14 per cent. It was only the third time in Australia's 73-year history that all seats in both the Senate and the House of Representatives have been up for election. Computer analyses published in today's newspapers gave Labor 59 House seats to the Liberals' 49. Nineteen reported in doubt. The contest for the House is crucial because under the Australian parliamentary system, the position of prime minister is awarded to the leader of the majority party or ruling coalition - not to the candidate with the largest popular vote. Before Saturday's election Labor held a 67-58 majority in House. The outcome in the 60-seat Senate was unclear, although early trends indicated Labor would improve its position there. Minor parties which have wielded considerable power faced elimination. However, a definite result may not be known for three weeks because of the complicated counting system. Virginia ---Israeli 'Spying' Blasted (C) AVit- VorA Times Service NEW YORK - Israel's intelligence service, in the past regarded as the best in the Middle East and the equal of larger services, is under severe criticism because of its failure to assess correctly Arab intentions before the October War last year. United States civilian and military intelligence communities. including a task force at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., have studied with dismay the errors of Israelis in evaluating their own information and the material made available to them by Western intelligence services Information now available shows that as early as Sept. 24, the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency, which specializes in electronic intelligence, were convinced that a major Arab attack was coming and warned Israel. The Israeli command rejected the warning. This rejection is in accord with the attitude of Israeli intelligence throughout the prewar period. In the view of. American and other Western sources, the Israelis were too confident of their knowledge ·of the Arabs and underestimated their potential enemies' ability to keep secrets. An official Israeli govern: ment report, issued after a lengthy inquiry, blamed Maj. Gen. Eliahu Zeira, the director of military intelligence, and Brig. Arye Shalve, his principal assistant, for a "totally insufficient warning" of the Egyptian and Syrian attacks on Oct. 6. Other intelligence organizations in the Middle East report that the Israelis ceived by the E g y p t i a n s ' cover plan and tended to discount information about an imminent Arab attack from their own and foreign sources, including the Central Intelligence Agency. Although the secret of the Arab offensive was well kept -- one British estimate is that only eight high Arab officials knew the time and points of attack -- the Israeli intelligence center had sufficient information. The failure came in evaluation. From all accounts, Israeli, Arab and neutral, it appears that the Israeli intelligence service was locked into a doctrine that held that Egypt would attack only if she had enough air power to knock out the Israeli air force and its bases. · The commission of inquiry, headed by Dr. Shimon Agranat, president of the supreme court, found that. "a doctri-. naire adherence" to the aerial-preparation theory was at the bottom of the failure to evaluate correctly warnings from the Suez Canal front.
