Byrd Jr. Impregnable Redoubt? Zumwalt Makes Waves In Harry Byrd Waters By Ben A. Franklin (C) AW Yor/c Times Service WILLIAMSBURG, Va.-The retired admiral who brought long hair to the Navy, billeted women on ships of the line and gave a better break to black seamen during his widely publicized tour as chief of naval operations is cruising Virginia this summer and making waves on the otherwise calm political waters of Sen. Harry F. Byrd Jr. Elmo R. Zumwalt Jr.. the 54-year-old Navy "whiz kid" who at 44 was the youngest officer ever promoted to rear admiral and at 49 became the youngest chief naval officer, with four stars, was here "testing the water" Friday for a race next year against Byrd. the incumbent heir of one of this century's great, unbeatable, conservative political names. "The water is not as cold as I thought it might be," the admiral observed in an interview. Byrd's father, the late Sen. Harry Flood Byrd. ruled Virginia politics--and often swayed the national government--until his retirement in 1965 from an impregnable redoubt called the "Byrd Organization" that took him from the Virginia governorship to a position of power for 32 years in the Senate. "Young Harry" Byrd. who is 60 now. inherited his father's seat first by appointment and has since won two elections to hold it. Another is coming in 1976.

The Zumwalt temerity thus stems in part from a view he shares with other Virginia Democrats that the younger Byrd may be vulnerable. WASHINGTON (AP)-The Arab League's special envoy. Clovis Maksoud, cautioned Saturday "against the euphoria that resumption of shuttle diplomacy can generate." He said that no adequate agreement can be achieved on the Sinai peninsula without a similar development at the Golan Heights. There have been reports from the Middle East that Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger would fly there this week for a final round of talks for a Middle East settlement. At a news conference preceeding his return to the Middle East, Maksoud said such an interim agreement is also linked to Israel's early compliance with various United Nations resolutions. These include its withdrawal from occupied Arab territory, recognition of the Palestinians' national, legal and human rights, and on their right of self-determination, he said. Failure to take those steps ."will only prove the disquieting misgivings that millions of Arabs have and that is that Israel is buying time through d e l a y s . . . in order to achieve for itself a restored political leverage," he said. Maksoud said that in his visits to 29 cities in 21 states he found the American people more receptive to the Arab position, a change which he attributed to the East Bank Junior Plans Orientation October war, the oil embargo and growing evidence of Palestinian organization. "I don't think that Arab positions are supported," he conceded. "I think we have achieved respect for our positions more than support for them." Because of the American policy reassessment and the "erosion of the earlier bias toward Israel," he said. "I think the oil embargo as an option is very low in Arab priorities. We are not addicts to embargo. It doesn't seem at this moment that we will use it." Maksoud B l ^ golden pyramid savings. BYRD it is noted, has never won an election with more than about 53 per cent of the vote. This has been ample because Byrd quit the Democratic party in his 1970 bid for re-election, avoiding a Democratic primary fight and dividing the regular party vote against him between the Democratic and Republican losers in the general election. He remains an independent. But there appear to be other reasons than the problematical lure of victory behind the provisionally declared, but still unofficial. Zumwalt candidacy. In a "non-political" speech here Thursday night to the Virginia Civil Defense Directors Assn.--a performance typical of scores of hard-working weekend appearances he has made across Virginia in re- j cent weeks--Zumwalt sought to picture himself, standing with arms folded a bit nervously across his chest, as less an office seeker than as a man with an idea whose time has come, or needs to come. "It is not whether or not it is possible to win." he said. "My hunch is that this is a very good time to put across a set of beliefs." His main idea, he said, is that "insincere government"--an administration and . a Congress which have failed to tell the American people the truth--have gulled the nation into a dangerously false sense of security, or anyway insufficient fear, about two "critically dangerous" trends. They are, first, the energy crisis, and our dependence on Arab oil, which he believes is vulnerable to interruption not East Bank Junior High has scheduled a seventh grade orientation for Aug. 29.

And second, the Nixon-Ford administrations' policy of detente with the Russians, which the admiral said Thursday night he would support "if it were real." Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger is the main villain of Zumwalt's second complaint against "insincere government," with former President Richard M. Nixon hot far behind. 'It is we who are accommodating and they who are demanding," he said of the Russians in his talk, calling detene "a policy we pretend to have with the Soviet Union while they remain the con men, bug- gering up the American economy by manipulations in the Middle East oilfields and building their military strength far beyond our own." Kissinger, Zumwalt said, has "used his power in frightening ways to crush dissent and criticism." RQ711S The easy-to-carry, easy-to-enjoy portable cassette tape recorder.
