Begin, bespectacled former Jewish guerrilla fighter against British forces in man- dated Palestine, is finding it difficult to make friends on his first visit to Britain. The fight is over, but the memory Is lingering on. Begin was commander of the Irgun Zvai Leumi under- ground organization during the mandate. The guerrilla group was responsible for the deaths of many Britons in Palestine between 1944 and 1948. Almost as soon as he stepped onto British an airport news conference Begin, 58, admitted he was re- sponsible for the hanging of two British soldiers during the last years of the mandate and for the blowing up of Jerusa- lem's King David Hotel. The blast killed 91 parsons. He said: "I am proud of all (he operations carried out for the survival of Hie Jewish people. Thank God we were THREATEN BOMBS Bomb throats subsequently forced cancellation of two events programmed in his honor by his hosts, the Zionist supports Hi rightist political stand in Is- rael. Many of Hie complalnta ai- pressed by newspapers and public figures against Begin's stay echoed those raised dur- ing the recent state visit of Emperor HirohHo of Japan. Begin is only reopening old wounds for people who had relatives, murdered by his men, said Labor MP Gerald Kaufman. am sorry Hiat he was said Kaufman, Urn- self a Jew. "It is inevitable that' hte visit should remind people of the crimes his terror band committed." Another prominent Labor MP, Christopher May hew, said he will question Home Secretary Reginald Maudllng about Begin being allowed into Britain. Begin himself ashed why memories should be particu- larly unforgiving in his case. He recalled bitter fighting'had also embroiled British forces in Cyprus, Kenya and Ireland. "Makarios was he said. "Weren't British soldiers killed in Cyprus? Mr. Ken- yatta WM here: Wasn't he re- ceived warmly? And Mr. de Vslera: Didn't he do some- thing to British soldiers? If I am not received as they were received, the reason la be- cause I am Jewish." Archbishop Makarios, Jomo Kenyatta and Eamon de Va- lera all are presidents of, their respective countries. The Daily Telegraph called this conclusion misguided. "The British rebuke to Mr. SD editorial said, "de- rives from instincts which, if we ceased to possess them, would deprive us of our self- respect." The Guardian rebuked Begin for showing no contri- tion over the "sadly inevita- ble" excesses of the Palestine fighting. The Sun was blunt.. "Israel, the country that re- morselessly, and understanda- bly, hunted down, kidnapped, tried and executed Nazi war criminal Eichmann, should be the last land to demand for- giveness for her own war it said. "Go home, Mr. Begin. do not want to meet you." Scientists identify moon materials By HOWARD BENEDICT HOUSTON (AP) Lunar sci- entists have identified three basic building blocks of the moon and discovered a large re- gion of relatively high radioac- tivity. Experts reported Monday at the third annual lunar science conference that data and rocks gathered on Apollo moon-land- ing flights disclose these three basic materials from which the moon-is constructed: basaltic rock found in the great dry plains on the front side of the moon. Bas- alt also, a common material [ound on the earth but its chem- ical composition differs from that on the moon. the mysterious po- tassium-rich material returned by Apollo astronauts Which also is high in such other radioactive elements as uranium, thorium and rare earth metals. This is generally found in the radioac- tive northwest sector on the front side. found in most parts of the moon. It is low in radioactivity and high in alumi- num, calcium and sodium. Dr. James Arnold of the Uni- versity of California at San Diego said the radioactive zone was detected by a gamma-ray experiment operated by astro- naut Alfred Worden as he or- bited the moon alone during the Apollo 15 mission last August. Potassium, uranium and thor- ium were detected "in high con- centration in the Western Mare (dry sea) region, on Mare Im- brium and Oceanus Procel- larum." Arnold said research is under way tn determine if the radioac- tivity Is associated with thermal emissions from beneath the sur- face. He emphasized the dosage is high only in relation to the rest of the moon and that levels are similar to those on earth.
