"In view of the hostilities," the State Department banned but specially authorized u ,c ™—, the Soviets apparently want a quick end to the Middle East war. and 13 Arab from Iraq on the Persian Gulf to Morocco on North Frica's Medi- picture as the U.S. government pushed for a speedy cease-fire after it eased away from one official's use of the term neutral and wound up as a self-proclaimed non-belligerent. The official sources said their rating of Kremlin intentions came from behind-the-scenes discussions with Soviet diplomats and others at the U.K. Security Council over rival proposals for a cease-fire in the day-old conflict. The assessment eased fears the Middle East flames would quickly ignite a major power conflagration. But the Arab-Israeli firefight itseli posed serious problems for the United States. President Johnson was expected to discuss them with Democratic leaders and with his secretaries of state and defense at scheduled meetings today. At the State Department, lights were on all night as officials scanned reports from the conflict area and worked on such probems as: — How to evacuate, by civilian transport if possible, those of the 44,000 Americans in the 14-nation danger zone who want NOTICE Notice is hereby given that an election will be held in the City of Leachville, Arkansas, on the 20th day of June, 1967, at which there will be submitted to the electors of the City the question of issuing City of Leachville, Arkansas, Industrial Development Revenue Bonds (called "bonds") under Act No. 9 of the First Extraordinary Session of the Sixty-second General As- $200,000 for the purpose of furnishing the overall financing incurred in connection with the CUITCU 111 LUIIIICULlUll WlLll H'" rtlllCiH.Ull KG,lull lv,um-i~ developing of industry, including called Monday for all Jews to refunding of the bonds hereto- take trains, planes or buses to fore issued under Act. 9 for the Washington for a rally in sup- purpose of acquiring and con- port of Israel Thursday in La- structing the premises occupied fayette Park, across from the by Florafax Delivery, Inc.

The United States also has shipped arms to both Israel and some of her enemies. Military reports reaching the administration indicated Israeli forces bested the Arabs in the first day. Both the White House and the State Department said they did not know who launched the attack and that it could take a long time, if ever, to determine which side was the aggressor. It was learned following a congressional briefing Monday that the administration had acknowledged surprise at the sudden outbreak of battle. The U.S. position on launching of the attack gave policymakers more room for maneuver. For one of the U.S. commitments according to preliminary analy sis here, was in line with the past Soviet tactic of trying to reap maximum political propaganda advantage out of the cri- militry force.

But while neutrality "is a great concept of international said, indifference.' He said the United Slates cannot be indifferent because of its State Department press officer Robert J. McCloskey set off something of a furor when he replied Monday at his daily briefing to a question about U.S. poicy in the Arab-Israeli Council However he did not define the U.S. position as pro-Israeli or pro-Arab, nor would he repeat McCloskey's wording. In his May 23 statement John- \ son denounced Egypt's avowed! of the area.' President John F. Kennedy told a May 8, 1963, news conference: "We support the security of both Israel and her neighbors," and: "We strongly oppose the use of force or the threat of force in the Near East." President Dwight D. Eisenhower told Congress Jan. 5, 1957, after the United States had helped stop the Israeli-British- French attack on Egypt: "We have shown, so that none can doubt, our dedication to the principle that force shall not be used internationally for any aggressive purposes and that the integrity and independence of the nations of the Middle East should bt todoW.

Our position is neutral in thought, in word and deed." The switchboards at the White House and State Department quickly lit up with calls from congressmen and others. Why, many asked, was the United States now abandoning what they termed its commitments to Israel's Red Sea outlet, as "illegal and potentially disastrous to the cause of peace" said he asserted "the right of free, innocent passage of the international waterway." Johnson also said "what three presidents have said before — that the United States is firmly committed to the support of the IHcV tuuiicu ii/a \,WIHIIUM»"-""" *v L-umiinntu iu me oujj^iu-ni vt niw Israel and taking up neutrality? political independence and terri- Presidential press secretary George Christian went through a lengthy exchange with newsmen, neither backing up Mc- ;orial integrity of all the nations OHO 01 Hie U 0> UUllHlllUUdina *iiij«j »«—iv""- o i reaffirmed by Johnson during Closkey^; phrasingnor disavowing it.

One religious leader pointed out that .here are no organizations ? Arabic-speaking persons that cross religious or national lines. Therefore, said Father Joe Sharcen of St. George's Syrian Orthodox church, Indianapolis, unlike the Jews, the Arabic peoples have no over-all spokesmen or movements. At Brandeis University near Boston, student volunteers announced they would go '.* Israel to help harvest that nation's food crop in place of army vol- uneers serving at the front. More than 70 student applications to go were received and 100 more were effected. University officials said loans would be made available to the students to finance the roundtrip air fare to Israel.
