Minietta submitted two major suggestions for making relations between Blytheville and the base operate more smoothly. First, he said, a better road is needed from the city to 1 the base. On one occasion, he added Union failed last Wednesday to get the Security Council to do- condemn Israel's aggressive activities" and demand that it immediately and unconditionally withdraw all its forces" from the Arab countries. He proposed also that 'he assembly demand damages of Israel and the return of seized property.

Hous- ng for officials, said Minetla s almost unavailable. The Blytheville Housing Au- hority has requested 100 units from the Federal government, said Minietta, and if granted, is added, they will help aseuage Lhe housing condition somewhat. Statistically, some 39 percent of (he population of Blytheville s in some way associated with he base, he said. Of the base's $20 million annual payout, some ?4 million goes for local taxes, another 'A million for food purchases, and still another three-quarters million for utility bills. There are some 1,700 school children on the base bringing in about $290,000 in federal aid to local schools, continued the colonel. Regretably, said the colonel, of the 51.5 million in purchases made annually within 100 miles of Blytheville by Air Force personnel, only a small percentage of this amount is spent in the city. The military would rather rade in Blytheville, he added, recause the commerce would lelp the city grow and it would be more convenient. The city has a crying need 'or large - scale commercial tions, rail to take me necessary measures," he said, even those states which are not parties to the conflict may draw a conclusion that they cannot expect protection from the United Nations. In order to enhance their security, they may embark on an arms buildup." , Prevention of an arms race was one of five principles Jo'ii- son laid down for peace in the Middle East. Kosygin agreed with the objectives of three of :he other four and failed to clarify the Soviet position on the fifth. Kosygin accused the United States and Britain of planning to establish an international nav- airline service, he went on, and he pledged tq the audience to either go to Washington himself to work in behalf of the city, or to send a personal representative. If the city of Blythevills does not relish the threat that the base may be closed someday, the most likely way to prevent such a thing, said Minietta, is to make the city-base relationship indespensible from a military standpoint. The objective must be, he concluded, to strengthen Blytheville Air Force Base to such an extent that the government wouldn't dare close it. Minietta, a veteran of 26 combat missions in Korea for which he earned the distinguished Flying Cross, is also a graduate of the Naval War College. mistice lines, whereas Johnson termed them fragile and violated truce linse" and demanded recognized boundaries." Both men pronounced themselves ready for accommodation. Johnson said the United States, will do its part for peace in every forum, at every level." Kosygin, seeming to limit his sights to the assembly, said the Soviet delegation was ready to work with all others there and added that it would be good if the big powers' delegations found common language" on decisions for peace. Many diplomats expressed belief privately that a resolution like the Russians' could win adoption only if it contained no condemnation clause. They foresaw long negotiations and expected that the final product would he a new resolution under different sponsorship adopted in three weeks or more. Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban told the assembly the Arab governments on June 5 Bounted an aggressive assault designed to bring about Israel's immediate and total destruction." He rejected the suggestion that everything go back to where it was before" that date and, indicating that Israel meant to keep the Old City of Jerusalem, said the Holy City was now reunited after her tragic division." He offered free negotiations with each of our neighbors" and said the assembly should issue a call to the re- ua wang. me marines said ii enemy soldiers and seven Marines were killed and 30 Marines were wounded. Communist monars and artillery again shelled three Marine outposts near the demolitarized zone between North and South Vietnam Monday night, and 20 Marines were wounded.

Kosygin and his top aides walked out of the assembly hall during Eban's speech, which attacked the Soviet role in the Middle East war. Soviet officials said later that it was not a deliberate walkout, but that Kosygin had an appointment to keep. Eban accused the Soviet Union of instigating an arms race in the Middle East by sending 1 billions of dollars of military aid to the Arab countries since 1955. the rarely used alarm button which summons emergency help.
