l\ L_ I V '..-' «~« V BULLDOG 2 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Wed., Nov. 5, 1969 f Red China \ U.N. seat I still cold ;. Washington Post Service -; UNITED NATIONS - The > United States again opposed .; the seating of Communist China in the United Nations ; yesterday while reiterating an offer to talk when Peking abandons its "isolation." Rep. J. Irving Whalley, R-Pa., making the U.S. presentation to the General Assembly, did not depart notably from previous American policy statements despite the Nixon administration's efforts, so tat unsuccessful, to resume discussion with Peking's representatives in Warsaw. Meanwhile, Albania reiterated its traditional demand for the seating of the Communist government and expulsion of the Nationalist govern- - ment based on Taiwan. It blamed the United States for a series of "aggressions" around China which it claimed had now been joined by the Soviet "revisionist" clique. 1 Whalley asserted that the Peking regime has spurned disarmament discussions and opposed a peaceful settlement in Vietnam while insisting on a condition for admission to the U.N. which the assembly "in good conscience" cannot accept — the expulsion of Nationalist China. He cited liberalized American regulations on travel and trade with Communist China and asserted that the United States had been prepared to offer "specific suggestions on an agreement for more normal relations" at the planned Warsaw meeting last February which Peking abruptly cancelled. . Despite discouragement ;-from Peking, Whalley said, • the United States ."intends to " • persevere." He reiterated r President Nixon's assertion 'made here in September that ^'we are ready to talk with the leaders of Communist China in a frank and serious • spirit whenever they choose 'to abandon their self-imposed ". isolation." • ; Whalley's speech reflected :U.S. confidence that after the • debate ends next Monday the assembly will again defeat a -Cambodian-Albanian move to seat Peking and expel Tai•wan and also will reaffirm a Tdecision that China representation is an "important question" requiring a two-thirds "vote to change. .. Philippine Ambassador Pri- . vado C. Jimenez supported •the U.S. position, contending -.that arguments for "universality" in the U.N., which is not mentioned in the charter, should not be allowed to override other considerations. Nationalist China, he asserted, . has lived up to its charter ob- 'ligations. Albanian Deputy Foreign Minister Halim Budo contend•ed that from its inception Communist China has fol- .lowed a policy of friendship, good neighborliness, nonintervention and peaceful coexistence with all states. .'.'Almost in the same breath he also noted that China has .supported the revolutionary -struggle of all peoples.

Israel United Press International Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban told Lebanon yesterday it risks Israeli retaliation if it lets Arab guerrillas attack from its soil. "If certain organizations regard themselves as having the right to attack Israel, Israel is entitled to take action against them in any way she deems effective," Eban said in a nationally broadcast speech. He said Lebanon is under "an obligation to respect the independence and security of Israel and prevent any attack from her territory upon Israeli citizens and territory." Commenting on proclaimed Soviet support for Arab guerrillas, Eban said this proves the Soviets do not want peace in the Middle East and are pursuing an "unfortunate policy which led to war in 1967 and is preventing peace in 1969." Eban, who ?,poke in Jerusalem, said his country will not consider itself bound by any peace formula worked out by the United States and the Soviet Union. Earlier yesterday Arab guerillas fired rockets against an Israeli settlement near the Lebanese border. on guerrillas The attack came within hours after commando leaders and Lebanon announced settlement of differences over guerrilla raids against Israel. Israeli warplanes streaked across the Jordan River cease- fire line and bombed Jordanian artillery positions in retaliation against an attack earlier in the day on Israeli positions near the Damiya Bridge. A lone Israeli plane also flew over Cairo, in what could have been an implied warning to Egypt, but an Egyptian spokesman said it was driven off by antiaircraft fire. An Israeli spokesman said two Katyusha rockets were fired into Ramat Naftali, about 4 miles from the border with Lebanon, causing some damage but no casualties. It was the first attack hi the area since the conflict between Lebanese military and the guerrillas broke out two weeks ago and confronted the Arab world with its most serious crisis since the 1967 war. A settlement was reached in two days of talks between the Lebanese delegation headed by commander-in-chif, Maj. Gen. Emile Bustani, and the Palestinians led by Passir Arafat, head of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Al Fatah. False kidney disposable London Times Dispatch LEEDS, England—University scientists at Leeds claim they have developed a simplified form of artificial kidney that can be thrown away after use. The main feature is a filter unit costing little more than the cheapest existing type. It is so designed that skilled nurses and technicians are not needed to sterilize it. ' The developers say it would make it possible for many more patients to treat themselves in their homes. The Leeds equipment, proved in trials after three years research, employs a di- alyser in which the infected blood is washed with a salt solution sealed in a . plastic container which can be incinerated without anyone coming into direct contact with it. Existing artificial kidneys employ either a "wet" dialy- ser, which has to. be sterilized, or a throwaway coil type of filter, which costs between $16.80 and $21.60 a treatment. Most of the 800 patients now receiving treatment twice or three times a,week have to go to hospital. Malaria-infected troops pose U.S. health problem By FRANK CAREY AP Science Writer WASHINGTON - The prospective rise in the rate of troops returning from Vietnam increases the potential for a resurgence of malaria in the United States unless close surveillance is kept, government and other malaria experts said yesterday. The experts, including two from the Public Health Services's Communicable Disease Center at Atlanta, Ga., and one from the Gorgas Memorial Laboratory, Panama, stressed that so far the infection of American civilians with imported malaria constitutes a minor problem. Only 57 such cases since World War II have been recorded, plus a few from Vietnam returnees. But officials also said the number of malaria - infected troops among Vietnam returnees has been increasing almost steadily since 1966 with more than 9,000 already counted, including more than 3,000 so far this year. "There is a large potential for the transmission of mala- ria in this country," said Dr. Myron Schultz of the Commu- n i c a b 1 e D/sease Center. "Many soldiers are coming back from Vietnam. The mosquito infectors are present in this country and we have a nonimmune population." Dr. Martin Young of the Gorgas Memorial Laboratory said that, so far, the cases that have occurred among civilians are of the "vivax" type of malaria, the less formidable of the two major types and the kind for which drug treatment is available. But he added: "Heaven only knows what would happen if drug - resistant strains of falciparum malaria became established in this country." The doctors said the danger of civilians acquiring malaria from returning troops stems from, the fact that such men are" subject'to relapses of the vivax type. If they are then bitten by an anopheles mosquito the infection could be transmitted to others by the mosquito. '.•"New N.

United Press International LIVERPOOL, England Last Friday Mrs. Kim Nevitt lay on a mortuary slab with a death tag around her wrist. Yesterday, the 23-year-old mother of three sat up in bed, ate rice pudding and laughed at herself for trying to commit suicide. As the blond former nightclub worker came out of a deep coma, her estranged husband stood beside her. They were reunited with a kiss. "I've been such a fool," said Kim. She laughed with her husband Frank, a 26-year-old laborer; asked him to "go and buy me the prettiest nightie you can find," and then told doctors she had taken an overdose of sleeping tablets because she missed her family. Kim and her husband parted a year ago, and her three young children were put in the care of local authorities. "I wanted them back so much, but I couldn't have them because I was living in a rooming house," she said. Kim was found on a lonely beach near Liverpool Friday. A coroner, finding no pulse, pronounced her dead, and she was taken to a local mortuary. A tear saved Kims' life. A mortuary attendant noticed it rolling down her cheek, and she was sped to the hospital. "It was such a shock," said Kim, "When I first came round, I discovered an identification tag round my .wrist. It just said Waterloo Mortuary on it and then my name." Said a Liverpool hospital spokesman: "She wasn't expected to pull through. She's the miracle of the hospital." , Medical experts said a combination of an overdose of drugs and exposure helped to keep Kim alive as she lay on the beach. Dr. H. Alstead, deputy medical officer at Liverpool Hospital, said the overdose and exposure lowered her body temperature and blood metabolism, giving her the appearance of being dead. He said there had been no apparent brain damage or damage to other organs. Doctors said Kim made "an astonishing recovery and is progressing fine." Said Kim's husband Frank: "Now I hope everything will return to normal and we will get back together again with our children." The Arizona Republic Published every morning by Phoenix Newspapers, Inc.

Wednesday, Nov. 5,1969 Vol. 80, No. 173 Israeli court hears expert JERUSALEM (UPI) - A prominent British psychiatrist told an Israeli court Monday Denis Michael Rohan is "sev- erly mentally ill." But he said Rohan knew what he was doing when he set fire to Al Akash Mosque last August. Rohan admitted earlier in the day during cross- examination that he had carefully planned the burning and had taken elaborate precautions to avoid discovery. Railways minister is ousted New York Times Service NEW DELHI - Prime Minister Indira Gandhi removed from her cabinet yesterday Ram Subhag Singh, a key supporter of the old-guard faction that has split with her in India's ruling Congress Party. The ouster of Singh, who was railways minister, purges the cabinet of the last significant ally of the old- guard faction, known as the Syndicate. MRS. GANDHI said she was removing him because he had attended a meeting of the Syndicate leadership on Sunday at which several resolutions critical of her government were adopted. She presumed, she said, that "this means your dissociation with government policies." In a resignation letter, the 52-year-old Singh, who had held cabinet posts since 1962 when he served under Mrs. Gandhi's father, Jawaharlal Nehru, cited in particular the Syndicate resolution on the "Rabat debacle" — a reference to India's embarrassment at a recent conference of Islamic nations in Morocco. India tried to attend this conference, but was finally barred when Pakistan threatened a boycott. The government has been widely criticized in many circles for seeking an invitation to a religiously oriented Moslem conference when India purports to be a secular nation. The Syndicate's resolution on Rabat said that the government's "unseemly act" had "compromised our position in the world." THE DISMISSAL of Singh hardens the battle lines between the two warring factions of the Congress Party and makes a head-on collision in Parliament virtually inevitable—which could threaten Mrs. Gandhi's government and possibly cause instability in several state governments as well. If the Syndicate, as seems probable now, withdraws its votes from Mrs. Gandhi, who has been prime minister remain in power only with the remain in power only withthe votes of Communist and other leftist parties, who have frequently backed her in the past. Many politicians think Mrs. Gandhi would find a coalition • with the Communists untenable and would choose instead to ask the president of India, V. V. Giri, to dissolve Parliament and call new elections. Astronaut trio greeted C7 fey Japan^ emperor United Press International TOKYO — Japan welcomed America's Apollo 11 astronauts yesterday with cheering crowds, medals and a special audience with the royal family. Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. and Michael Collins and their families flew into Tokyo from Seoul, Korea, or. the last leg of their round-the-world goodwill tour. They leave today for Washington and a welcome home reception headed by President Nixon. An estimated crowd of 120,000 Japanese lined the route of the motorcade from the airport through the bustling Ginza district to cheer the astronauts. Prime Minister Eisaku Sato, who was host later in the evening at a dinner for the astronauts, pinned Japan's Cultural Medal on each of them. They were the first foreigners ever to be awarded the decorations. The three also were made honorary members of the Japanese Boy Scout organization at special ceremonies at- tended by Foreign Minister Kiichi Aichi. About 2'/z hours after their arrival, the astronauts and their wives were received at the Imperial Palace in a 30-minute audience with Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako. The Japanese couple had watched the moon landing when it was televised live to Japan by transpacific communications satellite. A court attendant said Hirohito asked the astronauts a number of questions about their mission. Japan was the 24th stop on the tour which took the astronauts to every continent.
