His visit was to preceed a trip to the United States by Premier Meir later this month during which she is to meet with President Nixon to discuss the tension in U.S. - Israeli relations caused by the breakdown in the military standstill that was to occur, during the cease fire between Israel and Egypt. Israeli officials have made clear that any Israeli par¬ ticipation in the peace, discussion at the UN will be determined' by action to ,.rectUy.E^pt's. violations of the cease-fire which involved installation of as many as 32 anti-aircraft missiles in the cease-fire zone. Israel charges that military activities have been under way along the Suez Canal has finally been publicly confirmed by the U.S. In Washington State Department spokesman Robert J. Mcaoskey said such Israeli air strikes at the missiles haven't been completely ruled out, especially if the Egyptian build up continiies, it was reported. But so far the government was inclined t6 see' what American diplomatic efforts ac¬ complish and Mr. Eban was to,go to the UN to be ready in case Israel resumed par¬ ticipation in the peace discussions. Israel's part in this effort conducted by UN special' peace envoy Gunnar V. Jarring has been, limited to two meetings with the diplomat. These were carried out by Yosef Tekoah, Ambassador to the UN, who then returned to Jerusalem for consultations. He was expected to have returned last week but remained in Israel for high level meetings on the build-up of Egypt missile strength along the canal and development of Israel's position in peace talks.

Jerusalem (WNS)-Israeli health of ficials reported that 42 cases of cholera had beeii confirmed in the nation and that a seven-year-old Arab girl fi-on East Jerusalem had died of the disease. Israel was innoculating all travelers leaving the country regardless of whether the.< country of destination requests it. Innoculations are not required to enter Israel and Ministry of Tourism officials reported that the cholera outbreak hadn't affected tourist trafic. (In Washington, United, States health officials suggested-but so far have not required--that Americans planning visits, to Israel undergo innoculation^iV! France was reported tOibip, quarantining travelers arriving from cholera in¬ fected areas who - haven't been innoculated.) Ihe Arab girl died 15 minutes after being ad¬ mitted to a Jerusalem hospital. Health officials said her parents had failed to heed broadcast warnings to call a doctor on .the onset of symptoms and she was brought in for trieatment in an advanced stage of the disease. Most of the cases have oc¬ curred in the Jerusalem area and health officials are trying to track down the cause. Mass innoculations haven't been ordered because vaccinated personp can be carriers of cholera without Rowing symptoms and could mask the spread of the disease before its source is tracked down. Dr; David Brachbtt, director of the Public Health S.ervice, reported that the, World Health Organization has endorsed Israel's anti- cholera efforts. (The WHO had indirectly criticised some nations, including Egypt, for failure to report outbreaks in these countries. WHd has begun lo publicize outbreaks without Waithig for formal notification.)'
