Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, February 10, 1975 More Soviet aid to Egypt hinges on return of military advisors By DREW MIDDLETON New York Times Service NEW YORK Egypt has received four shiploads of am- munition and spare parts from the Soviet Union in the last month but, according to highly qualified Israeli sources, any decision to supp- ly heavier military equipment has been made conditional on a return of Soviet advisers and instructors to Egypt. The Soviet foreign minister, Andrei A. Gromyko, told President Anwar Al-Sadat in their talks at Cairo last week that aircraft and other ad- vanced weapons systems would be provided only if Soviet military personnel EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 11th to FEBRUARY 22nd INCLUSIVE THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE WILL PROVIDE FREE BUS SERVICE ALL BUS ROUTES WILL OPERATE TILL MIDNIGHT FOR THE DURATION OF THE WINTER GAMES, AS FOLLOWS: 1 1A MINUTE SERVICE p.m. 2 3 MINUTE SERVICE p.m. 4 MINUTE p.m. 4A ROUTE-30 MINUTE SERVICE p.m. 5 5A MINUTE SERVICE p.m. West Lethbridge-15 MINUTE SERVICE p.m. PLEASE NOTE: Extra buses will be provided where needed, and bus patrons may be required to ride school buses operating on regular routes.

For Further Information Contact The transit Office at 327-2588 or Ask Your Driver For Assistance were readmitted, the Israeli sources said. The Soviet offer remains open. The Israeli estimate is that Egypt would require approx- imately 200 high-performance fighters and fighter bombers to challenge the Israeli air force. The 22 Mirage F-1E fighters purchased from France will not be delivered until the end of 1978, at the earliest. Approximately Soviet military personnel were ex- pelled from Egypt in July 1972 by Sadat. At present, military analysts estimate that the number of Russians in Egypt is about 900. The expulsion, the source said, resulted in a loss of Soviet influence in the most populous Arab country and of prestige throughout the Arab world. Now that the Arab governments have the money to purchase arms in France, Britain and other European countries, Israeli sources said, the Soviet Union, once the Arab's only supplier of arms, increasingly depends on a military presence to ad- vance Moscow's policies. Consequently, the level of Soviet personnel in Syria has been raised to between and Regular Soviet air- defense troops are manning surface-to-air missile sites around Damascus, according to Israeli information, and Syrian air defense has been thoroughly modernized from radars to missiles. Among the missiles identified is a new SAM-9, the sources said. Defense analysts in Washington, London and other European capitals consider that Israel enjoys a'military superiority in the Middle East over any combination ol Arab countries. But they believe that developments in the area are likely to erode that superiority within the next 18 months. Soviet military presence in Syria and a possibility that Egypt's need for modern fighters will lead to a re- establishment of a Soviet military presence there are important elements in the military balance. Soviet arms shipments, add- ed to the French and British commitments, these sources said, would reduce Israel's present qualitative advantage in weapons unless she receiv- ed new tanks, aircraft and missiles from the United States. The flow of sophisticated weapons to Arab countries, a rising level of technological Tough judge's critics guilty of 'contempt' CALGARY (CP) Provin- cial Judge L. A. Justason says recent criticism of his jailing of two first offenders for theft amounts to "blatant and inex- cusable contempt of court." Judge Justason made in his comments in court Friday during a hearing for a Southern Alberta Institute of Technology student who was fined for a first offence of stealing worth of records. He scolded a lawyer who made a "slanted reference" in court to the controversy over the sentencing of the first offenders and said shoplifting in the city has reached "almost epidemic" levels. The judge said he-was sur- prised at the lawyer's com- ment and added that letters published in newspapers and Disc or Drum Brake Special Paperworkers seek parity QUESNEL, B.C. (CP) The Canadian Paperworkers Union will seek wage parity for its members across the country when the next session of contract negotiations begin, the union's president said here Saturday.. Henry Lorrain said the un- ion, which has members in Canada, is seek- ing to close the 28 cents an hour gap between better paid workers in British Columbia and workers .elsewhere. He said there now is a large measure of parity east of B.C. other publicity regarding the sentencing of first offenders constituted contempt of court. "Beyond that, some of them have opened the way to court actions in slander on the words of a judge, a most serious situation he said. "We must be aware of the almost epidemic incidence of shoplifting in this jurisdic- he said. "If sentencing is to be effective, then we can hardly hold an investiture and give the distinguished criminal' conduct award everytime an accused comes before the court." Judge Justason recently im- posed a six-month jail sentence on a 16-year-old who stole worth of empty pop bottles. He sentenced another first offender to jail for two months for stealing a sausage. capability in the armed forces of those countries and their abundant manpower, in the view of western intelligence sources, challenge Israel's capability of defeating or, at least, checking any combina- tion of Arab powers. Syria and Egypt, according to Israeli sources, have inten- sified their efforts to balance Israel's air superiority. Syria has 600 pilots under training and has completed the train- ing of the pilots for at least one squadron (12 aircraft) of the MiG-23's sent by the Soviet Union. These fighters are considered superior to the American F-4 Phantoms in the Israeli air force. The Egyptian problem now is a shortage of aircraft rather than of pilots. Egyptian pilots, bearing Saudi Arabian and Libyan passports, are be- ing trained in France on the F21 fighter-bomber purchased during Sadat's recent visit to Paris, the sources said. Israel's chief advantage in the balance of air power is possession of American "smart supplied since the war in October, 1973. These include the Walleye TV- guided bomb, the Maverick TV-guided missile and a fami- ly of laser-guided bombs. These weapons provide the Israeli air force with a signifi- cant qualitative advantage over the Arab air forces. Israel's problem, according to qualified Israeli sources, is the high level of Arab an- ti aircraft defense. The Israeli expectation is that this defense would pre- sent a serious problem in the event of a fifth Arab-Israeli war. The sources noted that Israel's own air defense rested not on extensive ground installations, as in the case of Syria and Egypt, but rather on interceptor aircraft. Israel's qualitative edge in weaponry will be increased if ,U.S. agreements to provide other sophisticated weapons are implemented. MOTORS APPLIANCE MOTORS Available Best Prices All Types!
