A-6 Alton Evening Telegraph ihursday, August 31, 1U72 Russians may be forced to give up Egypt naval bases By ENPRE MARTON WASHINGTON (A?) - The Soviet Union may soon be forced to give up its naval bases in Egypt, some in telligcnce sources here say. Relations between the tv r o Countries have been rapidly deteriorating in recent months and President Anwar Sadat of the United Arab Republic already has told the Russians to withdraw their air find army units. Sources report a growirv; belief in Washington's intelligence community that the Russian navy may soon follow suit. There have been reports of n secret meeting in which Sadat told his subordinates the Soviet navy would leave Egypt. Officials here say they know about the meeting but cannot confirm the reports, They say they arc inclined to accept an earlier statement by Sadat that the Russians could continue to use the naval facilities. But one official said it was "significant, or at least interest ing" that Moscow has not commented on Sadat's statement. Sources say there has not yet been any change .n Russian use of their naval installations at Alexandra, Mi-rsa Mat rub and the Gulf of Sollum on the Libyan border. Loss of the naval facilities would not have the same impact on the Soviet Union as its earlier loss of air bases, although it would be another psychological blow, sources said. Loss of the air bases has shown up in the recent cessation of Soviet reconnaisance flights over the U.S. slxih fleet, the sources said. All 18 skyjacking attempts this year have heeii failures By VERN HAUOLAND WASHINGTON (AP) — All 18 attempts this year to hijack an aircraft for ransom have failed. Federal Aviation Administration Administrator John H. Shaffer said todoy. In every instance, he said, the persons Involved either have been arrested, killed, or ore under the control of a foreign government. "The recent action by the Algerian government in returning the $1.5 million in ransom money paid by U.S. airlines in two hijacking incidents must be a severe blow to anyone who still imagines that air piracy can be a profitable enterprise," Shaffer said. "There now is virtually no place on earth a hijacker can go with the realistic expectation that he will be allowed to keep the money he has extorted. "When a person buys a ticket on an airliner with the idea of hijacking it for profit," Shaffer said, "he has really bought himself a ticket to prison or to the morgue." Hijackings for extortion began last Nov. 24 when a man known only as D. Cooper disappeared after parachuting from an airliner with $200,000 in ransom money. Many government officials are confident Cooper was killed in the jump. However, no body has been found, and the money has not been recovered. All 20 hijack attempts since— two last year—have ended in failure, Shaffer said. Tn five cases the hijackers escaped by parachute. All but. one were tracked down on the ground and arrested, and the ransom paid them was recovered. The exception was a hijacker who surrendered to authorities in Honduras and claimed to have sent the $303,000 in ransom to recipients in Red China. Of the 27 persons involved in the 20 hijackings, Shaffer said, three were killed and 17 were taken into custody by U.S. officials. CORRECTION TENDER —SWEET Only while limited quantities last!

Broadway Acrt>M from (iernuuiut 466-7728 The loss of Egyptian air bases also was serious for broad Soviet military planning, officials here say. MIG23s, using the bases, covered the southern half of Greece and Turkey, two NATO allies of the United States. They complemented the air coverage over northern Greece and Turkey from MTG2I)s based in the Soviet Union and Bulgaria. Since the Soviet Union has no aircraft, carriers in 'he Mediterranean, the Egyptian bases seem irreplaceable, officials say. But. in the event of loss of Egyptian naval installations, the Russians still could use two bases in Syria, at Latakia and Tartus.
