   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., April 20, 1974 Doubt Total Egypt-Soviet Split By Roger Leddington MOSCOW (AP) President Sadat's announcement that he is shopping elsewhere for the arms the Kremlin won't sell him is the latest in a series of crises in Soviet-Egyptian rela- tions that have always fallen just short of a complete break. Communist party chief Leonid Brehznev will probably welcome the Egyptian president for the summit meeting he proposed in his speech Thursday. But unless Sadat convinces the Soviet leaders Egypt cannot survive without the missiles and planes he wants and Egypt demon- strated last October that it is unlikely to get them. New Arms As if anticipating another headache in his relations with the Egyptians, Brezhnev moved last week to bolster the Soviet position in the Arab world by pledging new arms shipments to Syria. He also told visiting Syrian President Hafez Assad that the Kremlin takes a dim view of the United States' "partial steps" to solve the perennial Middle East crisis and Arab moves to secure peace without Moscow's direct participation. Brezhnev was clearly demonstrating his displeasure over Sadat's growing rapprochement with the U.S. and Secretary of State Kis- singer's success in negotiating with Egypt.

But no matter what develops in the wake of Sadat's latest outburst against Moscow, it is unlikely to lead to a total break between the two governments. Left Dependent Sadat may get the advanced planes and missiles he icing on the arms cake, as it were from France or some other Western supplier. But his armed forces now are completely armed with Soviet equipment, and this leaves him dependent on the Kremlin for the replacements, spare parts and munitions to keep the machine running. Likewise, Syria and Iraq are lesser factors in the Arab pic- ture compared to Egypt, and the influence in the Arab world that the Soviet government has paid for so heavily on a working relationship with Egypt. Ever since the Arab debacle in the 1967 war, Egypt has been regularly asking the Russians for late-model missiles and at- tack planes. The requests were always refused. Sadat came twice in 1972, and both times was rejected. His response was was swift and spectacular; he expelled Soviet civilian and military advisers from Egypt, sending Soviet-Egyptian rela- tions plummeting. The Kremlin has also been unhappy abou' Sadat's en- couragement of the private sector in the Egyptian economy, a clear obstacle to the Soviet dream of a "socialist transformation" for Egypt. Swallowing Difficulty May Make Problem for Elderly By Warren E. Leary BOSTON (AP) When grandmother complains she's having trouble swallowing, younger relatives shouldn't smile to themselves and think she's just getting difficult with age. She could have a genuine swallowing problem because of a peculiar relationship between her gullet and a large blood vessel, a condition that researchers say causes more elderly persons to suffer with a throat stricture problem than previously believed. Descending Aorta Radiologists at Mas- sachusetts General hospital said that in their X-ray studies of 30 elderly men and women who had trouble swallowing, all showed signs the descend- ing aorta interfered with the esophagus. The descending aorta is the large blood vessel from the heart that delivers blood to the lower extremities. The esophagus, or gullet, is the tube between the mouth and stomach. Both lubes go down side by side from the chest lo the diaphragm. In a report in the April issue of Radiology, Drs. Joseph Ferrucci, Jason Birnnolz and Stanley Wyman said everyone studied had a dilated or ex- panded aorta, a partially obs- tructed esophagus, and a smooth contour on the left side of the esophagus indicating pressure from the aorta. "We have brought attention to a relatively unrecognized cause of older patients not be- ing able to Ferrucci said in an interview. "Aortal interference in esophageal functioning has been known before, but it has not been emphasized widely that this is more common than previously believed." Nutritional Problems "This very well could be a reason for some nutritional problems, malnutrition and unexplained weight loss suf- fered by many elderly per he said. "It's jus harder for them to eat." Ferrucci said abnorma muscle spasms and loss 01 some coordinated muscle con trol in the esophagus is ex peeled with old age, as is the case with other parts of the body. He said these alterations contribute to the swallowing problem and are aggravated because older persons' spines tend to curve more. This stooping causes the esophagus and aorta to press against each other more severely. The most common sufferers from the problems are in their 70s and 80s, Ferrucci said. Women seemed twice as prone to the affliction as men probably because old women have softer bones than old men and tend to be more bent over than men, he added. Navy To Continue Fight for Underground Radio Network By Fred S. Hoffman WASHINGTON (AP) Refusing to surrender, the navy says it is ready to resume development of a controversial submarine communications system next year if congress provides money. That is a big The house appropriations committee is on record as favoring an end to Project Sanguine, which has been fought by environmen- talists and others who fear its vast underground network of wires would endanger animal and plant life. Texas-Wisconsin It doesn't help the navy's cause that Rep. George Mahon, chairman of the committee, is from Texas where opposition has arisen to locating the sys- tem there. Earlier, the Pen- tagon was forced to abandon plans to build it in Wisconsin. And people in upper Michigan i have let it be known they do not want Sanguine there, cither. The navy contends it must build this million system, which it says would be jam- proof, to assure that critical messages reach missile-firing nuclear submarines deep in the oceans in time of crisis. On Thursday, the navy an- nounced it was suspending development and halting ac- tivity on the project for the remaining months of this fiscal year. Later, the navy acknowledged it had overspent by about million and was trying to figure how to pay it back. Pentagon sources said they believe the suspension will lead to the death of the project, which has been under fire for about five years. However, the navy then insisted it "plans to continue the Sanguine research and development effort next fiscal year provided funds are appropriated by congress." JI3.2 Million The defense budget proposed by President Nixon for the 1975 fiscal year contains million to carry forward San- guine development. The navy already has spent million on the project. This is the way the Sanguine system, which has been tested on a limited scale, would work: Radio signals, transmitted along a huge grid of cables buried below ground, would travel through the earth's crust, into the atmosphere and down into the water to reach deep subs on patrol. At present, missile-firing submarines must rise close to the surface to receive radio messages. The key to the Sanguine sys- tem's effectiveness, ex-perls say, lies in its very low frequency transmission, which enables its signals to pass through thermal layers in the ocean. Because of this very low operating frequency, the un- derground grid must be spread over a large area up to square miles, the navy says.
