OATIS UNITED NATIONS (AP) Yosef Tekoah, at the United Nations off and on for almost 28 years and Israel's UN am- bassador for more than seven years, is getting ready to leave for he is glad. "I would not like to conceal the fact that for a veteran like myself it is not easy to witness the agony and the de- composition of the United Na- he said in an inter- view. "This has been one of the reasons why I felt that, hav- ing been associated with the United Nations in its days of greatness, I should not re- main at the time of its dete- rioration." He said the last straw came when the 1974 General Assem- bly first invited the Palestine Liberation Organization to its Palestine debate, listened to its leader Yasir'Arafat as to a head of state and gave the PLO permanent observer status in its ranks. Though Tekoah, 49, could have stayed on as ambassa- dor, he has accepted a post that will take him back to Is- rael-president of tlie Ben-Gu- FL66TWOOD STOCK REDUCTION SALE!

The teaching staff has already elected him and he is the only candidate for the approval of the board of governors. He will keep an affiliation with the foreign ministry, by request of the minister, Yigal Alien. And if he finds time he will write a book.

He said Thant's withdrawal of the first UN Emergency Force from Egypt in 1967 at the late president Gamal Ab- del Nasser's demand "precip- itated the outbreak of the Six Days' War." He was critical of "auto- matic voting where states vote not on the merits of is- sues but on the basis of affi liation to blocs controlled by the Soviet-Arab axis." He said the developing na- tions are under Arab domi- nance and enjoined in the vot- ing by the Soviet bloc. Tekoah said there is a fu- ture for the UN only if it aban- dons the method of voting "which brought about the adoption of one-sided, in- effective and sometimes ab- surd resolutions" and substi- tutes "a reasoned exchange of views and a search for the so- lution of problems by agree- ment." The university, founded in 1969, lies in a desert that makes up 60 per cent of Israel proper but has only 10 per cent of its 3.5 million population, and it "plays an important role in developing the desert."

About 200 architects have inquired about the com- petition, the first of its kind in France. Competition organizer Louis Maurel said: "The constant complaint from architects was that they had never before had a competi- tion to plan a whole town." Now the field has been whittled down to six groups of architects, including one from Sweden and another from Hol- land. Their imagination has been let loose on a chunk of bleak and sweeping countryside 15 miles east of Lyon. Whoever will be de- cided in be constructing a major section of the town. Maurel said: "We have stressed that the competitors make the most of the land- scape's attractions and that the quality of the environment should be one of their major preoccupations. "There is nothing grandiose about the landscape. It is a delicate, almost modest site. The slightest mistake would destroy its charm. We must be very careful." But the project itself could hardly be described as modest. The city, when com- plete, will stretch through a 10-mile-long valley with gent- ly sloping hills on either side. Its transport facilities will be and road links will ensure that the inhabitants can reach many major central European cities within three hours. The new city, aimed at ab- sorbing the overflow popula- tion from the suburbs of Lyon, will be called L'isle d'Abeau. Since the project was launched two years ago, pioneers have taken up resi- dence in rows of pink and cream houses lined up in open country like a collection of rabbit hutches. Today they are surrounded by acres of rolling countryside. By the year 2000 they will be part of a vast city. But Maurel, watching a pair of horses cavort in a field be-. side the new housing estate, was adamant. "It is essential we maintain a pastoral he said. "A man-made lake, parks, woods and pedestrian precincts will all be included to ensure that town and country mix harmoniously."
