After several days of newspaper speculation on the subject,. President C^rtler said Aug. 30, as he was! about to return here from a 10-day vacation, that : he would be "reluctant" to station U.S. troops in either area. "But I'll have to wait and see." This was an indication that he has not ruled out the possibility entirely. The idea reportedly orgl- nated with Carter's National .Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, But Brzezinski's office stressed Aug. 30 that reports of "specific proposals at this time are speculative and premature." A spokesman noted that it has. always been known that the President would make suggestions at Camp David to bridge ' the gap between Israeli Premier !Menachem, (CONt'inued on page-<) Decision To Be Reached Soon On Location Of New Center Set For Summit Intense preparations have been underway, for the summit at Camp David between President Carter, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egypt President Anwar Sadat. • President Carter and Prime Minister Begin have met on four.previous occasions—ih July and December of 1977, and March and May, 1978.

President Carter also once referred to the Prime Minister as "a strong leader/' "He is a man of deep convictions and unshakeable „ principle. Heis a mah of truth and quiet dignity. He is a 4mah who is polite arid very modest."

Originally, the goal was to refurbish and upgrade the existing Center; however, it soon became apparent from studies by the Architects and Engineers that efforts should instead be directed toward a completely new building, since the cost differential between refurbishing and building from scratch would not be significant. The determination where to build the best Jewish Center for the community has been taking place for more than two years. At least 10 different locations were reviewed by the Search Committee of the Joint Committee of the Jewish -Center/Federation. The Joint Committee finalized their considerations to three recommended locations. The -Jewish Renter "Executive Committee has reviewed the findings and accepted .the top rated site as the one to be presented as an alternative with the present Jewish Center site. These two sites, College Ave. and east of 1-270 between Main and .Broad Sts., will be thoroughly reviewed by the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Center before a final decision is made.
