BlythevlUs (Ark.) Courier News - Tuesday, May 30, 1987 - Page Flv* U.S. Silent On Mid East Crisis By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States clung today to a policy of silence on the Middle East'crisis, with officials hoping secret diplomacy would find a way to avoid an Israeli-Arab war. A State Department spokesman, who declined Monday to answer any questions about U.S. moves in the crisis, said his silence was "merely designed not to tilt the balance of diplomacy which we've worked so hard to achieve." He was understood to mean diplomacy and restraint on both sides so far had staved off a showdown and created time in which a solution to the underlying problem may he found. Egypt has threatened a blockade of the entrance to the Gulf of Aqaba against Israeli ships and any ships carrying what Egypt describes as strategic goods to Israel. Information available here is that virtually all shipping through the Strait of Tiran into the Gulf of Aqaba destined for the Israeli port of Elath is under non-Israeli flags. A critical aspect of the blockade is the flow of oil to Elath and whether the Egyptians consider oil a strategic cargo in terms of their blockade policy. Normally, 'it is said here, Israel has obtained 90 per cent of its oil from Iranian fiells on a regular schedule involving deliveries at six-day intervals by four Liberian-flag tankers. * * * From Elath the oil has been piped to Haifa on the Mediterranean coast where it is processed in a refinery. Whether Israel might find alternative sources of supply temporarily or arrange for shipments directly to Haifa is a question which authorities here are either unwilling or unable to answer. The State Department reported Monday that a retired diplomat, Charles W. Yost, has been sent to Carlo to consult with Ambassador Richard Nolle and other embassy officials. He is to spend several days there, then return to Washington for consultation at the State Department. Officials said Yost was not carrying any message or special instructions and was not expected to confer with any Egyptian officials. Yost retired from the Foreign Service early last year after serving as ambassador to Syria and Morocco and deputy U.S. representtive to the U.N. Security Council. Nolle is new in the Cairo posl. It was learned that American officials are convinced neither Israel nor Egypt possesses nuclear weapons. At least two inspections by U.S. experts, in 1964 and 1965, reportedly dis- suaded the U.S. suspicion that the Israelis were producing plu- Ionium for atomic weapons at their Dimona reactor near Beersheba, * * * Monday night a Department of Defense spokesman said a shipment of .50-caliber machine- gun ammunilion which left an arsenal near Independence, Mo., for Israel earlier in the day was filling a sales order made four months ago. In Washington, the Synagogue Council of America, representing the three branches of American Jewry, called for a national fast day to demonstrate support of Israel in the crisis. A spokesman said the fast would probably be held Thursday. The Rabbinical Assembly meeting here and representing conservative Jews, urged the U.S. government to declare forcefully it would act alone if necessary to protect Israel from aggression. Game and Fish Commission WR Target By GEORGE F. BARTCH Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller, who said last week that he would begin asking state board and commission members for their resignation if they didn't tender them voluntarily, apparently has selected the Game and Fish Commission as the first target for his written requests. The governor confirmed Monday night that letters to the seven Game and Fish Commis- Game and Fish Commission. ] Game and Fish Commissioner Raymond Farris of Biscoe said the letter he received from the governor asked for his resignation by noon Friday on grounds that Rockefeller had "promised an accelerated program and thought he could get along better if he could name a commission of his own choos- g " Rockefeller, contacted at his home on Petit Jean Mountain, said he would have no comment ing. seven Game and Fish Uommis- saia ne wouio nave uu uumi..-" sioners had been mailed last on the content of his letter un- week. He didn't say whether similar letters had gone to any other board or commission members, but the state Highway Commission has drawn his repeated criticism, both during his 1966 gubernatorial campaign and during the 1967 legislative session, when he called for independent audits of both the Highway Department and the less he saw it published. "In my letter to the Game and Fish Commission, I said I was not going to make the letter public," he said. "I said. I Was available to discuss the contents of the letter with them and until we had reasonable time for them to get in touch with me, I would stay with my word and make no comment. They can talk, but 1 won't, because I said I wouldn't." Few of the commissioners were feeling very talkative. The three available for comment Monday night had little to say except that they knew of no reason why the governor should lave requested their resignations. Farris said he thought Rockefeller's letter was in "very poor taste." "This Commission as performed and functioned properly and has done a great deal of good," he said.

Stay with those By TOM SEPPY WASHINGTON (AP) - The Peace Corps is increasingly zeroing in on the college senior as the ideal volunteer and private industry apparently is feeling the agency's recruiting effect. Six years of Peace Corps experience has shown, says recruiting chief Chares W. Butler, "that the type person we are looking for can be most easily found on the college campus, and more specifically among the seniors." "My ideal volunteer is a liberal arts graduate who shows he can get along with people, has a degree of tolerance and won't quit when the going gets tough," says Butler—himself a former volunteer. Of the Peace Corps' 4,350 Volunteers in 1962, 70.6 per cent were college graduates. That proportion increased to 80.3 per cent for last year's 13,959 volunteers. The agency notes private industry is increasingly aware of our mind and spirit," said one d.

I could quit school and get a job and I know we could make a go of marriage, but kids can't get married unless their parents sign for them in this state.

NO NAME, NO CITY DEAR NO NAME: If you were to become pregnant, your parents would not necessarily have to let you get married. Yes, birth control pills, if taken improperly, do Increase one's chances for becoming pregnant. And the Planned Parenthood people do not give the pills to anyone who asks for them.

"Usually a college graduate will have some background in language," Voas said, "or he has disciplined himself so he can learn one in three months. A person who lacks college training has a more difficult time learning a language in a short period of time." * * * Voas gave this composite of the average volunteer candidate: 22-year-old male — the ratio is 60-40 in favor of males—who has just graduated from a liberal arts course, was a little above average student, had at least a year of foreign language, was active in extracurricular activities, isn't married but has a girl and probably comes from California or New England.

LO I-S3U DEAR ABBY: I am v e r y much in love with a fellow, but his kisses turn me off. You see, he grew a mustache. I like the looks of it, but I don't like the feel of it. It reminds me of a grandfather I had when 1 was a little girl. When he would kiss me his big, bushy mustache would "scratch." My boyfriend's isn't that big and bushy, but it does scratch. Anyway, the minute I feel it, it spoils my mood. Do I dare tell him how I feel? REPELLED DEAR REPELLED: Yes, tell him how you fed, and tell him how he feels, loo. DEAR ABBY; My husband is doing something which I think is wrong, but I need someone to back me up. Our son, 6, is left-handed, so every time my husband sees him doing something with his left hand he gives him • smack and makes him try to do it with his right hand. My husband says that when he was a boy he was also left handed, or started out to be, but he had a teacher who used 16 force him to use his right, hand instead of his left, and she finally broke him of the habit. He says he is thankful to that teacher because all the tools and things are made for right handed people, and it is a handicap (o be lefty. Is this true or not? Our son is now writing with his right hand, but he wets the bed. BATTLING MOM: DEAR MOM: The inconvenience of being left handed is nothing compared to the emotional damage a child might suffer from being forced to use his right hand. Tell your husband to let the boy alone.
