WASHINGTON (JTA) — State Department officials are preparing a formula to extend efforts by the United States towards arranging a ' partial settlement bet¬ ween Israel and Egypt that could lead to ^ reopening of thie Suez C!anal, according to diplomatic sources. here. Despite reliable reports that Assistant Secretary of State Joseph J. Sisco received only slight encouragement from Israeli officials in his talks with them about the canal reopening, sources reported that the Depart¬ ment is anxious to preserve its initiative regarding the reopening of the canal. A major reason for t 3 for-, mula, sources noted, is to resist demands in the United Nations General Assembly, convening in New York Sept. 21 for Ambassador Gunnar V- Jarring to resume his mission towards a full set¬ tlement based on Security Council Resolution 242. Strong condemnatim of Israel from most of t^e countries repriesented in the General Assembly is ex- . pected under the leadership 01 tne Kioviet Union, the Arab states and France. The State Department was said not tp' be concerned by the ex¬ pected resolutions con¬ cerning Israel. One diplomatic source said, in fact, that the Americans would welcome the on¬ slaught against Israel to help weaken Israel's resistance against an interim set¬ tlement favoring Egypt. However, this source said, the U.S. delegation, on the explicit instructions of President Nixon will fight any attempt by the UN to impose sanctions on Israel, after the language of Resolution 242, or allow an opening for the Soviet Union to employ direct military measures against Israel. In effect, the source stated, the current U.S. view is to at¬ tempt to expand and strengthen the cease-fire arrangement, now into its second year, and create conditions to facilitate moves towards an over-all settlement. An effort towards an over-all set¬ tlement at present would be doomed to failure since Egypt and Israel are too far apart for the broad formula (CONTINUED ON PAGE 41 Tale Of Three Cities - Young Leadership Theme Invitations were in the mail this week for the 1971 Series of the United Jewish Fund and Council Young Leadership Developinent Program Committee.

Legislative action by United States government opening the gates to Soviet Jews is necessary. Please help." Last Thursday, following a sit-in at his Washington offices by members of the Jewish Defense League, Kennedy promised to act for the release of five Jews facing trial in Sverdlovsk on charges of "anti-Soviet activity." Light also reported that in a private conversation Monday with Bayard Rustin, the black civil rights leader told him; "I think that the Spyiet Union has behaved badly toward its Jews, but I think .vwe, the United States, have behaved equally badly. I ..want to know why President Nixon has not gone to the United Nations, why he has not himself denounced what is happening, why he has not called on other nations to do ¦so.'The'one thing he ought tp do is to say: "If there are .lews who want to come to America, let them come.
