Sadat told a press . conference before leaving that Egypt had purchased French-made Mirage jets and other types of military equipment but refused to reveal the quantities and types of planes; A Franco-Egyptian communique said me military equipment was "to compensate" Egypt for. part of its losses in the Yom Kippur War. The communique also mentioned several joint economic projects, including the construction of a Cairo sub¬ way, railway .material, a sugar refinery, an automobile plant and.the development of the Suez Canal zone. ' WASHINGTON (WNS) -Sen. Harrison A. Williams (D. NJ) has introduced legislation aimed at barring investments detrimental to the American, economy, notably by the. wealthy Arab oil-producing states. The measure would require disclosure of all substantial foreign holdings in American firms ahd would authorize the President to prohibit foreign investments that could harm the economy of U:S. foreign policy. While acknowledging that some foreign capital in¬ vestment is needed, Williams said,;"we must ask ourselves whether permitting .foreign investment without any government oversight is consistent with the national interest. In my opinion the absence of a watchman at the door exposes us to dangers which we have no reason to accept. However in San Francisco, Rep. Paul N.McCloskey Jr. (R. Cal.) told a meeting of the South Peninsula Committee of the Jewish Com¬ munity Relations Council that with an expected $40 billion federal deficit, internal borrowing would be a .drag on the economy .and "the only other capital available in the world today is Arab money." But he said the impact of Arab money could be controlled by limiting the investments by the Arabs in any country'. McCloskey also told the group that "as a reality, Israel must negotiate with the Palestine Liberation Organization" or risk another war. "If the PLO does negotiate with Israel, that in itself is recognition of Israel's existence." Kissinger Pjanning Trip To Middle East To Assess Possibilities Of A Solution WASHINGTON (WNS) - Secretary of State Henry A, Kissinger has announced that he will go to the|Middle East at the request of "all the parties" in the region to - have "first hand talks with all the major participants" in the Arab-Israeli conflict to see "what the" real possibilities of a solution will be." He said his trip "is pot designed to settle anything or generate shuttle diplomacy" but "I am hopeful progress can be made and I am going. with , that attitude." Kissinger said the chief issues now are the return to Egypt of "some territories" arid Israel's desire for .."some progress toward peace (which) can be . reconciled." He said tlie, alternative "will be serious; for all parties concerned." Asked whether the Arabs are ./ Urges Israel To Shun Kissinger's Diplomacy By Tuvia Mendelson JERUSALEM, (JTA) - Dr. Nahum Goldmann suggested Jan. 28 that Israel eschew the step-by-step diplomacy of Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger and press for total peace negotiations with moderate Arab leaders while the time is ripe. He mentioned ■ as modeates King Faisal of Saudi Arabia, President Anwar Sadat of Egypt and President Hafez Assad of Syria who he thought are ready and prepared to reach peace agreements with Israel. These - three- -Arab leaders are anti-Communist and want to get closer to the United States, he noted. But time is an important factor for Israel since Faisal is sick and Sadat is not very strong Percy's Statements Under Criticism ■i1! .(: WASHINGTON (WNS) - Sen. Charles H. Percy (R. 111.), who has just returned from a visit to 12 Middle East countries, including Israel has come under sharp criticism from Jewish leader, in his home state of Illinois for his remarks on Israel. Percy, long considered a staunch friend of Israel, told newsmen here that Israel was intransigent, that Palestine Liberation [Organization leader Yasir Arafat was "relatively speaking a moderate" and that Israel could not count on American support if it was responsible for launching a new war in the Mideast. His remarks were similar to '•; ones made while in Israel. ., Percy told the Washington newsmen that, Israeli leaders were "unrealistic" if. • Athey thought they could ■(wold' contact with the PL(j>. He said Israel had missed a chance to negotiate with - King Hussein of Jordan and was mistaken in refusing to deal with Arafat. He , reportedly indicated that Israel would have to with¬ draw "essentially" to the pre-Slx Day W«r lines, but said the. U.S. must do everything possible to insure Israel's independence. In Chicago, Maynard I. Wishner, chairman of the public Affairs committee of the Jewish United Fund, said Jewish leaders were ''shocked arid dismayed" by Percy's "shocking change of policy" toward Israel; The JUF said if could not un¬ derstand Percy calling Arafat a "moderate" after "Arafat's appearance at the United Nations calling for the destruction of A .Israel with a holster at his hip." The JUF said it wondered "what has happened to Senator Percy's sense of perspective and even- handedness when he refers to Israel's 'intransigence'' when none of the other parties are asked to take any steps toward normalizing relationships leading to peace in exchange for territory." Rep. Sidney Yates, (D. 111.) dean of the Jewish Congressional! delegation, said Percy should "come down from the cloud of propaganda and look at the hard facts." Yates said that Percy, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Com-. mittee, by making provocative and ill-advised (CONTINUED ON PAGE It) , ■■';.■ in Egypt, at the moment, Dr. Goldmann told, a press conference, here. Dr. Goldmann, who is president of the v World Jewish Congress which will hold Its Sixth Plenary Assembly ;here Feb; 3-10, repeated his sharp criticism of Kissinger whose step-by^tep methods, he said, might work under normal conditions but not under the present conditions of tension, crisis ahd war danger that pervade the Middle East. He said it was objectively impossible for Kissinger to bring peace to the region by, himself because "the Russians will never .accept. ,a .Pax- Americana in the Middle East." The WJC leader said that Israel would have to go back to the Geneva peace con¬ ference in order to achieve a settlement but conceded that there was no point in going to Geneva until after the superpowers reached a basic agreement on the Middle East. He didnlt think that would be too difficult to achieve; He thought it would be more difficult for the government of Premier Yitzhak Rabin to go to Geneva, because'the present Israeli Cabinet does not ■command a sufficient majority Z to take sucha': decision. Dr. Goldmann suggested that the govern¬ ment call a new election on that issue, even at the.slight risk of the opposition headed by Likud leader Menachem . Beigin gaining a majority. Even if Beigin were to win, he could offer no solution and the Israeli public would soon realize that there was no alternative to the Labor - led coalition, Goldmann said. Radio Show Host Will Speak At Ahavas Sholom On Sunday evening, February 9, in the social hall of Congregation Ahavas Sholom (2568 E. Broad Street) Henry C. Romberg, M.D., will speak on the topic of Bringing Jews Back To Judaism. , Dr. Romberg is very active in the Lubavitch movement in Cleveland, a Chasidic group that has been successful in working with estranged Jews throughout the world. Among his ac¬ tivities in this work, Dr. Romberg hosts a weekly 1% hour radio show on WERE- AM in Cleveland called "The World of Chabad." He is also Secretary of the CSiabad House of Cleveland.

Romberg's speech will be "Jewish Outreach Today,..The Fifth Son." Who is the fifth son? Dr. Romberg says: "He is1,' the one who does not even show up at the (CONTINUED ON PAGE 11) ready to accept Israel's existence, Kissinger replied that "my1 impression is that there is ' increasing willingness, to accept the, existence of Israel as part of the process of peace." Kissinger indicated he would visit Israel and all of the Arab countries he went to on his last Mideast trip, Egypt, Syria and Jordan. However, he is not expected to leave for the Mideast until after Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko goes to Cairo Feb. 3- and then possibly Damascus and Baghdad. .' Meanwhile in Paris, French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing and visiting Egyptian President Anwar Sadat agreed to give Kissinger's step-by-step negotiations process in the Mideast another chance. But at the same time they also agreed on the necessity to reconvene the Geneva peace conference before the end of the year.

Doug Lee Memorial Dedicated Dr. HenTy Romberg Over one hundred^and fifty participants and spectators gathered at the Jewish Center gymnasium for the formal dedication ,of the glass basketball backboards which were installed in memory of Doug Lee. Their installation was made possible due to the many contributions made by the Jewish Community following the fatal accident which took Doug L«e's life. The Teen Age Board was an instrumental factor in both the contribution process and the dedication ceremony. The evening began with teenage chapters of AZA participating in short games which exemplified, the essence of Jewish Center goals — that of having fun iff a relaxed atmosphere. Following the games, Mike Talis, Co-chairman, of the Physical Education Com¬ mittee opened the dedication ceremony by introducing Andy Blazar, teen-age representative of TAB. Andy made a brief comment concerning the plaque and presented it to Mr. and Mrs. Alan Lee. The plaque was mounted in the gymnasium following the ceremony and appropriately so, - the mounting was. followed with an inter-Center basketball game between the Columbus All-Stars and Cleveland.
