Within the last several days it has been disclosed that negotiations for sale of some $2.5 billion in military hardware are under way with Kuwait. and Saudi Arabia, much to the perturbation of Israel since jet aircraft are included. The United States also is playing a major role in Iran's $2.5 billion modernization program which includes purchase of F4 Phantom jets. Eyebrows Raise On June 5, the State Department disclosed a major policy switch in an announce' ment that said President Nixon has approved the sale of supersonic F5E jets to five South American countries, including Chile. The others were Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and Venezuela.. The disclosure that Chile was included in the list raised congressional eyebrows, since U.S. relations with Chile have been cool at best ever since the Marxist government of President Salvador Allende took over in 1970. Grazing Land Good for No w But 'Management' Needed WASHINGTON (UPI) - The United States has enough forest and range grazing land to support steadily expanding meat production through at least the year 2000, an Agriculture Department report said today. The report from the Forest Service added, however, that some changes including "more intensive management" of top- quality grazing lands may be needed, according to Assistant Agriculture Secretary Robert W. Long. The report said some lands are being overused, but Long said the Forest Service study indicated that the twin goals of expanding meat production and protecting the environment can be met "at management costs —comparable to today's costs." Long said the information and U. S., Ireland Find Accord On Landings. * WASHINGTON (UPI) - Ten months ago the United States cut off Irish Airlines' landing rights at New York in a dispute over Ireland's refusal to let American planes serve Dublin. Monday the two nations announced a new agreement that will allow American planes to fly to Dublin and resume Irish Airlines' flights to New York. Under the old agreement, American airliners were required to land at Shannon Airport, and Dublin-bound travelers had to change to the Irish airline for the 20-minute flight to the capital. The new agreement still requires American flights to stop at Shannon both arriving in and departing from Ireland, but the U.S. planes will be allowed to fly on to Dublin. Implementation oif the agreement will await U.S. designation of an airline to serve Dublin. The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) chose Pan American World Airways some time ago to serve Dublin, but Trans World Airlines has petitioned the board to reconsider the decision. Pan Am, TWA and Seaboard Airlines presently serve Shannon. Angry Neighbor Shoots Player SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (UPI) — Pablino Yruegas, 65, was charged Monday with fatally shooting a sandlot football player whose ball bounced into Yruegas' yard. Police said Yruegas came out of his front door firing two revolvers as Gonzalo Borrego, 22, retrieved the ball Sunday afternoon. Borrego was struck) in the head. research technology developed in the study will permit adoption of national policies aimed at providing ample forage on both publicly and privately owned'lands. He said grazing practice changes may be needed, particularly on privately owned lands in eastern areas. The study indicated 835 million acres of forest and range land currently are being used for livestock grazing. About 14 per cent is controlled by the Forest Service, about 17 per cent by other federal agencies, and about 69 per cent is controlled by private owners and state and local agencies. Secrecy of State William P/ Rogers explained it by saying the United States simply was abandoning a previous policy of "paternalism'' which recipient countries resented as a limitation on their means of •annihilating one another. In Latin America the United States was moving back into a field which in recent years largely had been abandoned to France and Britain. France, for example, had sold 80 of her Mirage jet fighters to South America, and Britain half as many Hunters. In the Mideast, arms sales to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait represented an extension of the possible area of conflict to the Persian gulf with the emphasis on oil rather than the Arab- Israeli war. To Israeli fears that the sales would alter the military bal­ ance of the Middle East, Washington's reply has been that it is better that Kuwait and Saudi Arabia be arm_d with American jets than With French Mirages. In this way, it is argued, the United States retains at least a degree of influence over their use in the event of a new outbreak in the Israeli-Arab conflict rather than no Influence at all if the two Arab nations bought the French Mirages, as in the case of Libya.
