Mrs. Meir, ad¬ dressing Labor Zionist . delegates gathered here for the opening tomorrow of the Jewish Agency Assembly, chided Israeli peace ac¬ tivists: She said their slogan, "Peace For Territories," was "superficial and sim¬ plistic," adding ''I only wish it were that simple." Mrs. Meir asserted that "We do not want war, but the possibility exists, that the Egyptians will launch one." Dayan,' in an interview in Maariv, warned that unless some progress was made toward an interim set¬ tlement, there was a danger hostilities would be resumed. He stated that a partial agreement to reopen the Suez Canal was still possible and observed that new Soviet shipments to Egypt were dangerous because, they bolstered Egypt's confidence in its military prowess. Dayan cautioned against confrontation with the Soviets noting that "it seems that they also are not jum¬ ping into a confrontation with us." Bar Lbv, speaking to Israeli troops on the Golan Heights, told them to be "well prepared" for a possible renewal of fighting.

He dissociated himself from talk about the possibility of a new (X^emptive strike by Israd to subdue Egypt. He said it would not be in Isradls interest to cross the Suez Canal, occupy Cairo and set up an Egyptian, "puppet government" to ; ;m^ke- peace on Israel's t^rms.'But he added that this did nbt;mean that a situation could not. arise that would oblige Israel to cross the Suez Cabal,' occupy Cairo and' set Up ah :^:Egyptian "puppet ggyetnment'' to make pe^be on Israel's' terms.

Twenty-five demonstrators, rqiresenting a /' new organization, Americans for a- Secure I^ael, marched outside the r^ate Department chanting "Rogers is a Munich man." BemiceLipkin, a spokesman for the group, which has headquarters in New York, said the.Mter was accepted by H.H; Stackhouse of the Department's Middle East desk. It demanded that Rogers "fulfill the desires of '.the American people as expressed by Congress for a secure, Israel.. .or resign." Miss '\;Lipkijn said the organization'-"Was planning an educational campaign to .let the public know that "Israel is fighting America's battle in the Middle East." In New York, Americans for l;a Secure Israel' annbunced its formation as an "organization .it^i|^ert the public to the^'heed for changing American policy on Israel)" According to its chairman^ frof.

Fisher, here to attend the first Assembly of the reconstituted JeWish Agency which opened in Jerusalem Tuesday, .had liis last meeting with President Nixon two months ago. He refused to confirm or deny that he was carrying a letter from Nixon to Premier Golda Meir. He said he found Nixon "more sympathetic than anyone could expect" toward Israel, adding, "I can only Wish- Israel had some more friends like cNJJcon." Asked by newsmerii'if^the White House was acting on behalf of Soviet Jews; Fisher, who campaigned for Nixon in 1968 replied, "things are being done but I cannot speak about them." At a presS'^confereiice in Jerusaiemi^pdayy Jewish Agency chairinbn Louis Pincus said the Assembly would represaitt nearly 2.5 million Jews, the largest JeWish body ever set Up. He ^aid about 1.5 million con¬ sists of contributors to the various fund-raising appeals for Israel and another 900,000 represented the manbersbip of the World Zionist OrganiiEation on the con¬ clusion of the world-wide membership drive. Pincus stressed that for obvious reasons the 2.5 million did not include Israeli-Jews pr Jews from East European and other countries where the membership drive could not be conducted. He described the Jewish Agency's activities, apart frpm fund-raising, as im- migratioh, settlement, youth aliyah, ' social welfare, housing, health, absorption, agriculture and education.
