be convinced that a concession

induce Col. Nasser to yield. Col.
Nasser, for instance, abandoned

presence pf UNEF troops would
make it more difficult for Israel
to attack Egypt and that the
stationing of the UNEF on the
Egyptian side would embarrass
the Israelis, who don’t want the
UNEF on the Israel side.
And so it goes.
How to End Trouble
The Arab-lsraeli dispute has
caused plenty of trouble in the
past. It helped bring the Rus
sians into the Middle East. (Col.!
Nasser wanted arms to use
against Israel, and only Russia
would supply them); and it set
off the chain reaction which
ended in the five-month closing
of the canal and loss of oil!
supplies.
And since the dispute Inter
feres with every effort at calm
negotiation in this part of the
i world, it will certainly cause
trouble in the future.
What can and should be done
to end it?
The obvious answers are: Work
,to secure a settlement just to
bqth sides; do what is in the
best interests of the United
States.
Most of the people with whom
this reporter has discussed the 1
problem, both here and in Israel. !
start with those two principles
and then stop dead. There doesn't
seem to be any place to go from
there.
In fact, there are many per- <
sons in the Middle East who be
lieve America should do nothing t
about the Arab-lsraeli dispute— (
that anything we reasonably (
could try to do would be mis- ]
understood and resented by both i
sides. Intervention would only
make matters worse. Time, one
is told, is the great healer.
Others say that time in the
past has healed nothing in this
dispute. The situation has. in
fact, grown more critical with
time And the worse it gets the
deeper America seems to be drag
ged In. .
But to start with the problem
of justice, what would be fair to
both sides?

Again. It may be unfair to the!
Arabs to make them supply a

unfair to expect Israel, created

Can justice be secured through

do you impose this solution on

Role for America
Then, '’fairness’’ aside, what
are America’s own interests?
Our overriding Interest in the
area. American diplomats say.;
is to keep the Russians from out
flanking Europe. Africa and Asia.
So if the presence of .Israel leads
to strife-which brings the Rus-;
sians in, then, should the United
States help get rid of Israel? No.
reasonable person takes this oft
repeated suggestion seriously.
So Israel stays. The dispute
stays. And the United States
finds It more difficult to push
back the Communists.
In other words, with the Com
munists as well as the oil prob
lem 'the Arabs have it all, plus
the delivery routes', the United
States cannot simply follow its
own self-interests.
What it can and does do on
the Israeli-Arab dispute is try
to stay.above the bickering try.
to develop an area-wide policy
which can Include both Arabs
and Israelis (foreign aid. water
conservation programs, etc.) ahd
hope for the best.
Little Optimism Now
How do the old pros in this
area assess the chances for
"the best?''
In a two-month tour of the
area, this reporter found no
one who saw much reasori for
optimism. But here is how ex
perienced observers rate future
chances:
In the next few weeks prob
ably there will be no war. It
is hoped Israel will not im
mediately make the sort of test
of the blockade that will force
the Arabs to choose war or peace.
It is assumed the Arabs cannot
physically afford war at this
time, but If a showdown comes, i
it is assumed also that present
leaders in Egypt and Saudi:
Arabia cannot afford politically
to back down even if they
wish.
; During this year war is a real

THE FEDERAL SPOTLIGHT
| Health Insurance Bill
By Administration Seen
By JOSEPH YOUNG
The administration is expected to propose to Congress a
modified Federal employe basic-major health Insurance program.
Extremely cost conscious in these economy days, the ad
ministration’s proposal is expected to cost about (60 million a
year, which is between (35 million to (80 million less than various
health insurance bills now before Congress.
The proposed benefits would provide basic insurance against
| ordinary medical bills and major.
insurance for so-called catastro
phic expenses, but not on the
scale proposed in the Morrlson-
I Lesinski and Holifleld bills re
cently introduced in Congress.
Also, employes probably would
have to pay a greater share of
| the premiums under the ad
ministration's proposal.
However, the main point is
that administration indorsement
of health Insurance legislation!
I will give it some impetus on 1
Capitol Hill. Until now, the ad-|
ministration’s lack of enthusiasm
toward such legislation—even
though it had proposed a major
health insurance program sev
eral years ago—has stymied any
action.
** * *
DILEMMA—When Is a sick!
employe not sick? This thorny :
problem is giving some Civil
Service Commission officials a
sick headache.
It seems that a Federal em
ploye had been denied use of
sick leave by his agency, because
the day he called in ill, he still
was able to fulfill his obliga-,
tions as the driver of his car
!pool to drive his neighbors to
; work.
The agency refused the em
ploye’s sick leave claim and said
he would have to use his annual
leave. The employe contends
that he actually was too sick to
work—but not too sick to drive.
.In all probability, the CSC will
side with the agency.
** * *
ENGINEER LAYOFFS
PENDING—These days, when
the Government is crying about
a desperate shortage of engi
neers. It seems a little strange
that the Office of the Assistant
Secretary of Defense for Re
search and Engineering Is plan
ning to reduce the number of
its civilian engineers.
The unit recently was merged
with the Office of the Assistant
Secretary of Defense for Re
search and Development. The
agency s officials acknowledge!
that some economy reductions
may be in the offing, but declare
■ that every effort will be made
danger, for Israel will not be
patient for long. She must punch
a hole in the Arab blockade, for
both economic and pschological
reasons. The Israelis are fed up.l
They would rather fight thanj
wait for the Arabs to be per
suaded. They are only waiting
for the Arabs to fire the first
shot.
At the same time the Russians
are egging the Arabs on. and the
French are encouraging the
Israelis. This extra pressure:
from countries with other axes
to grind doesn’t help.
Hope Lies in Future
During the next several de
cades. the outlook is generally ;
described as good for peace and!
stability provided the area
desn’t blow up or go Communist:
in the meantime. In 20 years the
Western-oriented, complex
ridden older generation of Israeli
leaders will be gone, and the 1
country will be headed by a well
balanced new generation that
shows clear signs of wanting to
blend in with the Middle East
—Arabs and all.
At the same time, the present
Arab leaders, who were warped
by their reaction to colonialism
’and who feel a compulsion to ex
ercise every ounce of their new 1
sovereignty and dignity, will be,
gone. The younger generation
will take sovereignty for granted
and be willing to give up a little
for the common good—as the 1
more mature Western nations
are doing today.
I Then there is no reason why
Israel cannot ultimately live
with the Arab countries. But ul
timately is a long way off.

PAY—The administration Is
j reported strongly opposed to any
i attempt to amend the postal
irate Increase bill by tacking on
a postal pay raise. Much as the
administration wants a postal
rate raise, it feels that a postal
pay increase would more than
offset the increased revenues
that a rate increase would bring.
The proposed postal rate in
crease bill would bring added
revenues of about (527 million
a year—and this increased rev
enue would not take place for
nearly two years until the rate
boosts finally took effect. A postal
pay raise bill would cost least
about (200 million. But admin
istration officials argue that this
would also necessitate a classified
employe pay raise which would
cost (400 to (500 million, for an
immediate total cost of (600 to
(700 million.
This, they say, would wipe out
the added revenues of Increased
postal rates and defeat the pur
pose.
Government employe leaders
take a completely opposite view.
They say that Federal pay raises
should be decided entirely on its!
merits, without regard to postal
revenues. They cite the rise in
the cost of living for the sev
enth consecutive month to sup
port their contention that Fed
eral classified and postal work
ers are in urgent need of a pay
raise.
