12 / DES MOINE9 REGISTER • Frl,, Aug. 29, 1975 Technicians to be 'civilian in name only' MIDEAST Continued from Page One U.S.-manncd listening posts but did not flatly oppose the idea. Humphrey: Weigh Risks Senator Hubert Humphrey, (Dem., Minn.) also a foreign relations member, said of the peacekeeping plan: "We must -weigh-the-risks-with the necessity for achieving a lasting peace in the Middle East." Even as these opinions cast shadows on Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's peace efforts, the actual negotiations between Israel and Egypt seemed about to bear fruit in the Mideast, with both Egyptians and Israelis expressing optimism on imminent agreement. Kissinger flew back to Jerusalem Thursday with the assurance that Egypt is prepared to sign an interim nonaggression pact with Israel. Complete Shuttle Kissinger made the complete Egypt-Israel shuttle in one day so he could have full talks with Israeli leaders before the beginning of the Jewish sabbath at sundown today. Before Kissinger left Alexandria, Egypt, President Anwar Sadat told him and newsmen that there were no remaining obstacles to a new agreement with Israel as far as Egypt is concerned. Sadat broke away from the lightlipped caution that has been his style to date and appeared positively expansive by contrast. Nesi Peace Process However Sadat did note that if an agreement is signed it would only pave the way for "the next peace process" which would take place at Geneva. Sadat thus underscored that achievement of the present agreement would still leave a great gulf between Israel and Egypt. However, this agreement must be looked upon as the essential step to take now and concern for its success is deep in both Israel and Egypt, as well as the U.S. Senior officials in the American negotiating party, ever cautious, are thus currently worrying about the possibility htat the U.S. Congress could not support the agreement. Kissinger Fears Reporters were told on Kissinger's plane Thursday that he still fears that the whole agreement might be jeopardized by a congressional refusal to approve the technicians. Further, there is the fact that no fallback plan is ready to be called on if the use of American technicians is not approved. And at the same time, it is becoming increasingly obvious that these technicians will be civilian in name only, and that their function will inevitably have paramilitary aspects. Details Gained From conversation with officials of all three participants in the talks, the following details about the deployment of the Americans are now beyond dispute: • There will be about 100 operating technicians, mostly deployed at two or three warning stations entirely in American control. Some will be stationed in a symbolic "custodial" role at two more posts operated by Israelis — at Umm Khasheiba — and Egyptians — at a post east of the passes. There will also be about 50 support personnel. • The technicians and their backup will be volunteers in a civilian capacity, but virtually all will be drawn from government services: from the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency and the State Department, primarily. They will be offered unusually high salaries for what is certainly a hardship post and possibly a hazardous one. And they will in most cases be on leave from their agencies and able to return without loss in seniority. • They will be authorized to carry handguns and light carbines for "self-protection." U.S. officials say they are reasonably confident Congress will, in the end, approve the deployment of these men, but they say so with no great conviction. Kissinger himself is prepared to testify publicly before the foreign relations committees of both houses soon after his return to Washington, and administration officials are planning to submit a bill authorizing the technicians, probably as an adjunct to foreign aid legislation, as soon as Congress returns from its recess. Nevertheless, it would be a sticky point, so much so, a senior official said Thursday, that renegotiation of the entire package might be necessary if Congress refuses to agree. Jets Strafe Camp And while Congress and the White House seemed near the verge of disagreement on the use of technicians, the frailty of peace in the Mideast was underscored in Borghokieh, Lebanon, where four Phantom jets from Israel reportedly strafed a Palestinian refugee camp. Witnesses said a woman and a 3-year-old girl were seriously wounded. The raiders also hit a landing pier used by guerrilla boats in the Mediterranean about 10 miles west of here, and unofficial reports from Palestinian sources said three persons were killed at the pier. The Tel Aviv command said is planes attacked "terrorist targets" north of Tyre^abQAit 15 miles north of the IsfaelJ border on the Mediterranean-coast. The targets were noTapecified and the command said all planes returned safely.

Todd House to historic list TABOR, IA. - The Tabor Historical Society's Todd House has been placed on tKe National Register of Historic Places, Adrian D. Anderson, director of historic preservation for the State Historical Department, said Thursday. The house, constructed in 1853 by the Rev. John Todd, was used in the "Underground Railroad" anti-slavery activities in Tabor.
