Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday. Oecembei 24. 'Israelis eager to regain strong military position' CHICAGO (AP) Egyptian President Anwar Sadat says the Israeli military is eager to regain the position of strength it had before the October, 1973, Mideast war and he is concerned in case Israeli "miscalculation" lead to a new war. In a copyrighted interview published Monday by the Dai- ly News, Sadat indicated this justifies any new arms arrangement between Egypt and the Soviet Union. Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev is scheduled to visit Egypt in January. "I do not want an offensive right now." Sadat said. "I am giving the peace process all the time necessary to proceed. "But we are beginning at a crucial moment. Unfor- tunately, we do not have a long time. Now we must work fast." He said the reason for his note of urgency was that "the Israelis have got armaments from your United States arsenals to the effect that they feel they can regain their superiority or supremacy." "Their military institution is very keen to regain its position. The other factor is that the forces on the Golan Heights are very near each other. "What I fear is a mis- calculation, if not an intent to war, on the Israeli side." Sadat said he hoped the United States will "take ac- tion as soon as possible to defuse the situation in the only possible way through pressures on Israel and 1 am optimistic." Sadat said a request for rearmament by the Soviets would not carry Egypt back to the close relations the two countries had several years ago. "I shall always be he said. "The old era of Soviet experts that is a uiapte: -Soviets on i between us and the Soviet don't want you in the States Union. But, whx'ii 1 agree with to be shouting."

A Nova Scotia agriculture department expert says it is not poison, after all. The poinsettia, floral symbol of Christmas for many, was found until recently in many lists of poisonous plants, C.J. Fox said. "But none of these references could be sub- stantiated. Even the most serious citation was found to be based on hearsay evidence." Researchers at Ohio State University fed poinsettias to rats, forc- ing the food through a tube since poinsettias taste terrible.
