10 TMS SANDUSKY REGtSTCR-STAR-NEWS fliinduAky, O., ThnM., Dee. 15, 19S5 Israeli-Arab War Over Food Basket By JOHN If. MARTIN INS foreign Director The scene of one of the Worst Israeli-Arab clashes since the 1949 armistice is (he Sea of Galilee, a source of both food and power to the warring factions. Israeli troops itilled or wounded scores of Syrians in a fight along the northeast coa,st of this ancient mland sea, which also is known as Lake Tiberias and which in biblical history also was called the Sea of Chinnereth or Cinneroth. The Israeli government said it attacked to silence Syrian batteries which were shelling Israeli fishing boats. Israel holds a small foothold on that side of the sea, but Syrian batteries dominate the area from the hills above. The sea is about 682 feet below sea level. Is pear-shaped, and about )3 miles long and eight miles wide. It has a depth of about 1.50 fcot, IS fed by man.v warm springs, has cool, sweet water and swarms with fi.sh. But this sea also is part of the Jordan waterway, which United Stat has ben trying to utilize under a plan hat would benefit ooth Israel and her two hostile neighbors, Jordan and Syria. Israel may have been trying to test the worth of the new unified Syrian-Egyptian military command in its attack, but the Jordan river devtlopment plan also is behind the struggle in the area. Eric Johnston, special eniLssary of President Eisenhower, has made many trips to the Middle East to try to sell the irrigation and power plan, as a prelude to peace. Quarrels over just which side would profit the most in the plan have nullified acceptance, although the basic quarrel of course is the war il.^elf which never ended with the UN armistice. Fights over wafer rights arcj memorable in history and still ex-i ist the.«e days long after tlip once! bloody feuds of the American wildj west. ) In the case of Israel if has threatened to go ahead with its ov, .1 irrigation and power schemes next spring unless the Arabs accept the Johnston plan. The Jordan river is not much by comparison with the Nile in Africa and the Indus in India; other disputed water sources. The Jordan is only 280 miles long b' ': is very strategic in the Israeli- Arab dispute. In part of its course the Jordan forms the boundary between Israel and Syria. Later it becomes the boundary between Israel and Jordan. And in between it is enclosed by Jordan and the part of Palestine occupied by Jordan Israel wants its water not only for power but also for irrigation of the arid southern Negev area where it has been resettling thousands of Jewish refugees from many lands. There are more than 460 mil-' lion acres of commercial forest land in the United Stales, about 7 .T percent owned by private individuals and companies.

Higher Standards For EUmontary Schools Urged COLUMBUS, Dec. 15 <UP) — The Ohio Education A.ssociation recommended new and higher .standard.s for the state's 3,000 elementary schools. A report advocating a change in standards statics since 1949 was presented to the OEA convention at its end of three days of sessions here. The elementary school report was presented by Conneaut Superintendent J. H. Wanamaker, chairman of the OEA Commission on Improvement of Education. It aslced that elementary school staffs evaluate the programs in their schools as part of the Improvement. Wanamaker .said high schools must meet standards set by the state department of education, but that there is no inspection and chartering system for elementary schools. He said a staff rating of schools would eliminate the need for a large inspection force. WANT ADS BRING RESULTS ADLAI TO ANNOir\rr' WASf'INGTON. Dec. 13 (IN .Si Sen.
