Astronauts Allan L. Bean, Owen K. Garriott and Jack R.

The Security Council resumed its study Of the Middle East crisis today with statements from three of the most concerned governments, Israel, Egypt and Jordan. But there was no open sign of a peace breakthrough. The main reason for the study, which covers all developments since the Arabs and Israel fought the six-day war of 1907, was to weigh the prospects of peace and ways of attaining it. Study Interrupted The council began its study last month, but interrupted it to await a report of talks between President Nixon and visiting Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezh­ nev. There was no public word from them on any definite Middle East peace moves.
