Courier News - Tuesday, June «, 1967 - Page Five FOR THE CHILDREN — The Head Start workshop held yesterday at the Holiday Inn drew some 200 social workers and county Office of Economic Opportunity staff members.

(Story on page one.) (Courier News Photo) U.N. Falters in Mid East By JAMES MARLOW AP News Analys WASHINGTON (AP) - It's like a minuet. Paced with the likelihood of war in the 'Middle East, a war that could sprout into World War III, the United Nations all last week danced around the problem, doing nothing. Monday the war came. And again the U.N. Security Council dipped into its ever-handy bag of debate and consultation about some kind of agreement calling for a cease fire. There's a limit on how long file council can dawdle with semantics, while people perish In the Mideast's Jewish and Arab vorld, and still retain any meaning or respect. had its resolute support, which could mean anything from moral approval to military intervention although it seemed a little milder than the Soviet statement of May 23 which said aggression against the Arabs would meet with the "resolute resistance of the Soviet Union and all peace-loving states." But the Soviets stood firmly on the Arab side, accusing Israel of aggression and demanding it stop fighting unconditionally. If this most * recent Soviet statement seemed less belligerent than the earlier one, it may have been a bit of word- juggling, and, as a result, while Moscow didn't increase the ten- leamng or leoycui. — , And while the fighting contin- sion it didn't lessen the tension, ued and the council members This country got into the - - • " word juggling act,, too. President Johnson also issued a statement last May 23, saying this cuntry is "firmly committed to the support of the pom- argued, the watching world grew a little more tense for reasons outside the immediate conflict between Jews and Arabs. Moscow announced he Arabs cal independence and territorial integrity of all the nations of the area," meaning the Middle East. Then Monday the State Department, through its press officer, Robert McCloskey, gave the American position on the fighting. "Our position is neutral in thought, word and deed," he said. Did this contradict Johnson's May 23 position: that this country is committed to the support of the political independence of all nations in the area? No, some other U.S. officials said, explaining it is not clear yet whether the Israelis or the Arabs started the war. But a little later Johnson's press secreary, George Christian, said the State Department statement was "not a formal declaraion of neutrality." He explained that "in a conflict you are either a belligerent or a belligerent. If this all seemed like word- splitting by Moscow and Washington it was only an extension of what had been going on between their representatives in the United Nations Monday. * * ' The question there was how to agree on .calling on both Israel and the Arabs for a cease-fire, whether it should be just a cease-fire or a cease-fire with a string attached. The Soviet Union and the pro- Arab members of the Security Council wanted a cease-fire bul also they wanted both sides to puil. back to their positions — meaning inside their own borders — before Monday's fighting began. But the United States, Britain and others didn't like this. They wanted cease-fire without the withdrawal because if both sides pulled back Egypt's block- neutral." And he added that the ade of the Gulf of Aqaba would United States is certainly not a be strengthened. Rusk Slams at Cairo WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Dean Rusk accused Cairo today of malicious lying in its report of U.S. air activity on the Israeli side in the Mideast war. The secretary, biting off his words in a brief meeting with newsmen after a conference with President Johnson on th flaring Arab-Israeli fighting, avoided pronouncing the word "lie." But he used most of its definitions in saying the report was "invented for some purpose yet to be ascertained." "We don't like this kind of charge," Rusk snapped. Rusk would not go beyond speculation that the aim was propaganda and "trying to make difficulties for Americans in the Near East." Three specific points of concern, all related to the accusation of U. S. involvment, were readily apparent. * * * One was the cut-off of oil shipments from Iraq and Kuwait to the West with allegations of U.S. backing for Israel as the assigned reason. There were prospects the stoppage would spread. A scond point was attacks by Arab demonstrators on U.S. agencies, exemplified by mob assaults today on the American and British embassies in Beirut, Lebanon, fololwing the Cairo accusation. Mobs also attacked American facilities in Baghdad, Damascus and Alexandria. A third point bore on apparent Arab efforts to involve the Soviet Union more directly in the conflict. Egypt was presenting its version of the conflict to the Kremlin today and diplomats there drew the implication efforts, were being made to draw the Soviets in as at least a counterbalance to the West. No immediate Soviet reaction was made public. Moscow has avowed support of the Arabs and condemned Israel, but official sources here still said the Soviets apparently want a quick end to the Mid- east war.

Egypt was credited with hav- ng about 70 medium and light et bombers, but the batle re- iprts so far have not mentioned hem. The Israelis, whose military doctrine stresses fast thrusts nto enemy territory, have a mixed force of American M48 'atton tanks, some Sherman tanks and British centurions, as well as some French armored vehicles. There has been no indication yet of any arms embargo by the Jnited States and Britain which would affect the availability of spare pars for the Israeli armored forces. The Egypians are equipped largely with Soviet T54 heavy tanks, T34 medium tanks and other Soviet-supplied armor. U. S. military experts predicted, an Israeli victory, in part because they believe hte Israelis are better trained and mor capabl in maintaining both thir aircraft and their armored equipmen.
