UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA) —United Nations Sccrptary Gen¬ eral Dag Hammarskjold decided this week to visit Cairo again In a new effort to unscramble the latest United Arab Republic- inspired crisis over Israel cargoes in the Suez Canal. The Issue arose when the Inge Toft, a Danish vessel, left Haifa with a cargo of Israel cement and potash, bound for Asian ports. The ship was scheduled to pass through the Suez Canal on the assumption that the erratic UAR response to such transits would this time be a favorable one. BUT UAR officials detained the ship at Port Said and Ham marskjold began efforts via "quiet diplomacy" to ease the Inge Toft through. Then UAR officials an¬ nounced that an Egyptian "War Prize C!ourt" had ordered confis¬ cation of the pargo. The situation took a surprise turn when the captain ot the Inge Toft, on order of the ship owners, 600 DELEGATES EXPECTED TO ATTEND BNAI BRITH CONVENTION IN KANSAS CITY refused to allow unloading of his cargo. This stand loft the UAR officials with the embarrassing problem of losing face by accept¬ ing the captain's decision or using force against a peaceful ship offi¬ cial seeking only to protect his cargo from illegal confiscation. THE UAR met the problem by announcing that no water or fresh fruit would be provided to the Inge Toft crew unless the captain yielded. In the broiling heat of Egypt, this could become serious in a few days. Israel called the announcement "barbaric." (The New York Herald Tribune, in a Cairo dispatch, quoted UAR Minister of State Aly Sabri as declaring that Israel cargoes wUl not be permitted to go through the Suez Canal regardless of any actions taken by the United Na¬ tions, the World Court or the major powers.) . Hammarskjold had been plan¬ ning a Middle East visit in July. Under pressure of the now dis¬ pute, he changed his plans. His office Indicated he would prob¬ ably be in Cairo late this month in a bid to back up some strong letters to President Nasser with some personal diplomacy. MEANWHILE, the Israel cab¬ inet this week discussed the crisis. The cabinet Issued a communi¬ que stating that "additional steps to prevent piracy" were dis¬ cussed. However, observers are doubtful whether the cabinet would take any steps against Egypt before Hammarskjold gets his "last chance" to settle the conflict. It Is generally believed here that Israel can do little except to take retaliatory action against Egypt, if the Inge Toft is not per¬ mitted to continue her voyage through the Suez Canal vidth Israeli cargo aboard. At the same time, the opinion prevails here that the Israel government would be hesitant to take such drastic measures.
