VOLUME 92 NUMBER 17 CITY FINAL IO CENTS CEDAR RARIDS, IOWA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES American Jews Held In Egypt TEL AVIV (UPI) — An Israeli bus with 28 American Jews on a tour of the Sinai took a wrong road in the desert Tuesday and was seized by Egyptian forces near Ismailia, the Israeli military command said. Israel requested Egypt return the Egged Co. tourist bus and all those aboard. The command said the bus carried American members of the United Jewish Appeal (CJA) who were accompanied by at least one Israeli escort officer. “It was stopped by Egyptians and it is still in Egypt now,” a military spokesman said. “We don't know where it is exactly.” The command said Israel appealed for the return of the bus and its passengers at a forward command post of the U. N. peace-keeping forces in the Ismailia area. Israeli and Egyptian liaison officers are at the post. The appeal was made in accordance with a clause in the IsraeJi-Egyptian troop disengagement agreement that specifies the return of all persons who inadvertently stray into enemy territory.    I    not expect to be impeached” bargo.
