Israel announced in Tel Aviv it had stepped up its mil- itary preparedness on the Go- lan Heights following a Syrian army alert. This, the Israeli command said, included the partial mobilization of the re- serve forces. Israel has about 150.000 men under arms and another in reserve. In Washington, Israeli Am- bassador Simcha Dinitz told Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger the reports of the Israeli mobilization were "highly exaggerated and do not reflect the real situation." A White House spokesman said Kissinger "does not think war is likely and we are not in a situation of imminent con- flict." But urgent letters from Washington and Moscow were reported to have been deliv- ered to Presidents Hafez As- sad of.Syria and Anwar Sadat of Egypt on Saturday. Their contents were not disclosed. And Sadat, in turn, was re- ported to have, sent messages on the situation to President Ford and Soviet party chief Leonid I. Brezhnev. Egyptian military leaders in recent days have expressed increas- ing concern about a possible pre-emptive strike by Israel and have emphasized that their units are ready to meet any eventuality. The official Middle East News Agency in Cairo said Sadat met Saturday with his ministers, of war, foreign af- fairs and interior and with his intelligence chief and army chief of staff. No details were disclosed. Egyptian War Minister Ahmed Ismail also met for 90 minutes with Vladimir Bolia- kov, the Sovet envoy in Cairo, according to the Middle East News Agency. No further de- tails were given.

FREED Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Sec- retary of State Henry A. Kis- singer told Israeli officials Saturday that he had assur- ances from Syria that it would not attack the Jewish state. Israeli Ambassador Simcha Dinitz met for about 90 min- utes with Kissinger a.t the State Department and told re- porters afterward: happy to say that the assurances that I received from the secretary of state as conveyed to him by our neigh- bors indicate that the other side does not have aggressive intentions." Dinitz appeared to be join- ing with the secretary in trying to downplay speculation that recent developments in the Middle East were ex- tremely dangerous and might lead to war at any time. Dinitz explained the Israeli mobilization in terms of "pre- cautionary actions" to prevent any possibility of his country being taken by surprise. He said the calling up of the few reserves followed ihe un- loading of sophisticated arms from 20 Soviet ships in a Syri- an harbor late last week. Dinitz' version of his conver- sation with Kissinger was ap- proved by Kissinger .before Dinitz met with newsmen. Although State Department officials repeatedly denied the seriousness of the situation, it was evident there was concern about a new instability in the Arab-Israeli situation. This was underscored by urgent conversations Saturday night on telephone between Kis- singer and Dinitz as as a breakfast meeting Kissinger had at the State Department Saturday with Soviet Ambas- sador Anatoly Dobrynin. The Russian and American diplomats touched on Presi- dent Ford's upcoming visit to Siberia, but U.S. officials said the Middle East situation oc- cupied much of the conversa- tion during the breakfast. Dinitz conveyed deep con- cern about -Syria's apparent, decision not to agree to allow United Nations peacekeeping troops to remain in the demili- tarized zone on the Golan HENRY KISSINGER says reports exaggerated Heights. Such an act would be "in direct violation of the disen- gagement agreement that we have signed with the ambassador said. Asked how this squared with the assurances given by Syria to Kissinger that Damascus was not hostile, Dinitz indicat- ed refusal to extend the U.N. force would be "directly and diametrically opposed to the obligations undertaken by Syr- ia." As they entered the secre- tary's private dining room, Kissinger was overheard to say emphatically to Dinitz, will be no war." Ford Puts Quotas On Canadian Beef WASHINGTON (A P) President Ford imposed a quota system Saturday on the shipment of beef and pork' from Canada, charging ihe neighboring nation had erect- ed "unjustifiable import re- strictions" against U.S. prod- ucts. The action by Ford was in retaliation for quotas set by Canada last August limiting imports of U.S.-produced cat- tle and meat. A White House spokesman said Ford's goal in signing the proclamation was "to bring about an end to the Canadian Trace of Rain Drips on City Abilene netted only a trace of precipitation Saturday from an early afternoon drizzle.

The action came as sources reported Ford is also consider- ing lifting all restrictions on domestic sugar production aid shifting to a new quota system on U.S. purchases of foreign sugar. The President contended the Canadian meat restrictions "violate the commitments of Canada made to the United States oppress the com- merce of the United States and prevent the expansion of trade on a mutually advanta- geous basis." He said he deems it "neces- sary and appropriate" to im- pose restrictions on Canadian products "in order to obtain the removal of such unjustifia- ble restrictions and to provide access for United States cattle and meat to the markets of Canada on an equitable ba- sis." In a proclamation, the President set these quotas for a 12-month period beginning last Aug. 12: head of cattle; head of swine; 17 million pounds of fresh, chilled, frozen, prepared or preserved beef and veal; and 36 million pounds of pork in the same category. -v Inside Today Arusha Kindles Abilene Curiosity As the visit of the delega- tion from Arusha, Abi- lene's sister city, nears, Abilenians are becoming more curious about the land and the people that make up the African country.
