Behind-the-scenes activities in the Gulf area have been rather intense during the last few months. Though the sheik- doms have not yet arrived at any final agreement about their proposed federation, the Bahrein issue has been vir- tually solved, in the eyes of observers here. Iran appears to have all but relinquished her claim to the archipelago, and the plebiscite sought through the mediation of the United Nations was seen only as a face-saving device. With only one-third of Bah- rein's population being of Iranian origin today, it was a foregone conclusion that any sort of plebiscite would not re- sult in a retimi-lo-Iran settle- ment. The ruler of Bahrein, how- ever, has displayed less than complete confidence in the Ir- ano-British settlement re- ported to have been reached after several months of deli- cate negotiations. Whether he thought the negotiations took place somewhat too far above his head for his comfort, he Escape Retraced TORONTO (CP) for- mer RCAF pilot from Toronto has successfully retraced, a route he used 27 year's ago to escape from a German pris- oner of war camp near Rome. But Ray Sherk, 47, again had his troubles and had to hire a guide to finish the "es- cape." Mr. Sherk re-enacted (he 300-mile route from Italy to Switzerland Uu'ee other ex-pilots, but was the only one to go the full distance. All four wanted to finish the es- cape in a week but it took two for Mr. Sherk to finish and the other three decided to go on vacation in Spain. "The land and the people haven't changed a bit." Mr. Sherk said in a weekend inter- view. He left Canada May 28 with Don UcClarty and Len Bar- tley of Ottawa and Rod Hughes of Toronto to try to retrace their' escape from a prisoner of war camp at Fonte d'Amore and to meet again sonic of the people who helped them elude the Ger- mans.

If the politically fragile and wholly feudal sort of federa- tion of emirates being planned on the Persian Gulf is threat- ened at all, it is precisely fro m left-wing insurgency. There has so far been no signs of any such develop- ments in the1 shiekdoms. hut whether things will remain as quiet as they have been after the British pull out is any- one's guess. One imagines that if the sparks do begin to fly, the sheiks on the Gulf will soon enough forget the mutual sus- picions that have so far proved a stumbling block to their proposed federaion, and get together for mutual secu- rity. The smaller sheikdoms such as Sharjah, Has al Khaimah and Umm al Qwain are suspi- cious of one another, and tile i bigger sheikdoms, because of I long-standing mutual terri- I torial claims.

Despite Qatar's professions that its declaration of inde- pendence in April does not preclude a decision by her to join the federation, should it eventually come into being, the declaration itself seemed to show that the sheik in- tended to go it alone, and has Ihrown t'ne whole idea of fed- eration into more doubt than it has ever been before. Iran, meanwhile, continues her attempts to cultivate the friendship of the sheikdoms, and has been wishing the fed- eration every success. The Iranians would feel more comfortable with a right-wing federation on the southern shores of the Persian Guil: than with a left-wing regime there. It was apparently to en- courage the progress towards the federation thai Iran Look the steps to reliiujuish its claim to Bahrein. Same sort of mutual secu- rity pact between Iran and Saudi Arabia is also being spoken of. though when Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Omar as-Saqqaf visited Teh- ran recently, officials said the agreement would not be a for- mal one. The idea of the secu- rity arrangement is reported to have been first brought up when Iran's Foreign Minister Ardeshir Zahcdi a few weeks earlier attended an Islamic conference of foreign minis- ters. Meanwhile, Iran seems to be attempting to take advan- tage of the general all-round mood of conciliation to patch mood of conciliation to patch up her relations with other Arab regimes.
