VOL. 49 NO. 5 Tense Calm Prevails In Israel As Cease Fire Nears End JERUSALEM, (JTA)-- Israelis remained calm but with an underlying mood of tension today as the final week of the current Suez cease-fire began. Ihe truce, which was extended for 90 days when it expired last' Nov. 5, will terminate tomorrow, Feb."5. Cairo has declared that there would be no further extension unless Israel acquiesced to certain political conditions which it regards as unacceptable. But most Israelis believe that Eg5^t will contuiue to observe the cease-fire on a de facto basis as long as the Jarring talks are in progress. Political sources here said that Aml>assador Jarring may present a new report on his mission to United Nations Secretary. Goteral U Itiant within the next few days. The sources said such*a report obviously would,be aimed at inducing the Egyptians to extend the truce and enabling them to do SO without' losing face. The sources said Jarring would-probably state .for the record ttiat the renewed peace talks under his auspic^ hav^ gotten off to a useful start (U,S.,5^etary of State. William v^sJRogers said in Washingtbn Friday that he , was" "convinced ttiat the (Mideast) parties are on the verge of entering serious hegotiations" and that he hoped the cease-fire would "be extended beyond Feb. 5. Replying to a question at a ' press conference by the Jewish Telegraphic Ag«icy correspondent, Rogers said the recent series of notes exchanged between Israel, Egypt and Jordan through Jarring indicated new "areas of agreement." He; cited as an example, Israel's willingness to use.tiie word "withdrawal" and ti(ie Arabs' willingness to agrkie specifically to Israeli sovereigrvty.) .The flight of a Sovietrm^de 'Egyptian' figjhter-boiniber t>ver Israeli positions on the east baflk'i^^the Suez Canal yesterday was regarded, here as another attempt by Cairo to wage a "war of nerves" against Israel. ' Israeli sources said it was also intended for home consumption, to back ap the die-hard position of President Anwar Sadat on ending the cease-fire. ^ The sources expressed hope that "good sense" would prevail (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) FEBRUARY 4. 1971-SHEVAT 9 liiiMi^^P NEW YORK (Wlte)-The American Jewish Com¬ mittee announced if had received a Ford Foundation grant of $262,536 for its National Project on Ethnic America.

Sabin, president of the Weizman^Institiite and developer of the Sabin oral polio vaccine, has been named one of nine winners of the 1970 National Medal of Science, the American Government's highest award for achieveipnent in science. ¦ . ¦ JERUSALEM (WNS)-Israeli scientists at tiie Hadassah-Hebrew University Hospital cancer research laboratory have reported the development of a simple test to detect cancer at an earlier st^ge than any otiier known test. The tests were used on 520' patients at the hospital. The process must undergo further "exhaustive" testing on a "much wider scale" before its efficacy as an early cancer detector is established. LONDON (WNS)-Sbc members of Parliament, meeting with .Soviet officials, at the Soviet Enibassy, were,told "Soviet Jews may emigrate only if they have 'v^lid reasons.* " The officials refused to answer questions regarding the possible future trials of Soviet" Jews and were unable to name a single' 'active'' Jew in a responsible official capacity in ttie Soviet Union. UJFC Campaign Enters New Phase •«v*tH It Aatilcn *¦< Jiwiili Mt«h Sen. Jackson Charges Military Aid Tb Israel Inadequate . -v. Ben Goodman, General Chairman of the 1971 Campaign of the United Jewish Fund and Council, has announced^ ''that the Campaign is entering a new phase, as solicitors move out into the community, to contact prospects who will be expected to give as they have never given before, so that the $3,000,000 goal can be attained.. "Each day," said Mr. Goodman, "the people of 'Israel make sacrifices in their pursuit of peace, but essential human services cannot be sacrificed. To ipeet •¦ our traditional obligation, by providing the' full cosf of otir humanitarian I>rograms for Israel's im¬ migrants in 1971, we are. beiijlg asked to cbnMbute twice as much as last year. This new dimension in giving is ,|a£<e&ihpanied by ia deteraiihed act/of will: we havemadeupoui; minds that ISRAEL MUST UVE, and that, if necessary, Israel's SURVIVAL means SACRIFICE on oiir parts;" Gordon Zacks, .chairman of the Advance Gifts Diyision, wbich will raise the major part of the funds sou^t,'has said that in ttiis hour of. drastically in¬ creasing need,; we cannot expect the people of Israel to share the cost of taking care of their newcomers, as they have done in the past. "They have more than enough to do," said Mr. Zacks, "just to fight their battle of survival. I am confident that in Columbus, as in Israel, our people will (L0NTINUEP0NPAGE4) WASHINGTON (JTA)- Sen. Henry 'M.. Jackson charged today that President Nixon's new budget request to exteqd military credit to Israel is "wholly iiiadeqiute, both as- to amount and terms" especially at a "critical moment in the Midifle East which has become the cock¬ pit of the cold war." The Washington Democrat said that "rather than using the existing broad and decisive ^ authority granted last year in Sect. 501 of tiie Defense Procurement Act, the Ad¬ ministration has chosen to treat Israel's pressing military requirements in the routine tnahner of the Foreign Military Sales Act." Jackson pointed out that the new budget asked $582 million : for nlilitary assistance to 15 countries, including. Israel, Without setting forth specific sums for each cguntry. Capitol Hill sources,observed that with .15 countries sharing, in the $582 ^million, Israel was hardly likely to' receive the $500 million authorized for her last year. It was Sen. Jackson who .drafted Sect. 501 - of ' the Defense Procurement Act which gave the President broad authority to authorize substantial military pur¬ chase credits for Israel. Credit terms under Sect. 501 are much easier than under the Military Sales Act. Moreover, ; the Ad¬ ministration's request for funds under the Sales Act will have to run the gaunttet^ of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee beaded by Sen. J. William Fulbright,. the Arkansas Democrat who strongly opposed Sect. 501 of the Defense Procurement Act because of its open- «nded aid to Israel. . Sen. Jackson said he was. "dismayed by the failure of the Administration's new budget to use the broad authority to extend military credits to' Israel that was overwhelmingly voted by the last Congress;" He added: "The measure passed last year carried a strong and decisive policy statement aimed directly at Moscow tbat won the approval of 87 Senators. Now the Ad¬ ministration has decided gratuitously to request authority it already has, but without the sense of urgency the Congress took pains to emphasize last year, and which is as necessary as ever." Jackson contended that "This action may be interpreted in Moscow as an indication of indecision and ^bivalence at precisely the time when firmness and resolve are needed." Temple Jsrael To Celebrate Ifs 125th Anniversary ' A musical program of historical retrospiect will be the first in a series of special events in observance of Temple Israel's 125th an- niversaryr Friday evening,' February'5 at 8 p.m. at the Temple.
