Peace prospects were dim- med perceptibly Wednesday when Yasser Arafat, the burly chief of the Palestine Libera- tion Organization (PLO) call- ed for a new independent Palestine to replace the pre- sent state of Irsael and won a standing ovation from the so- called "Third World" Only ivay to fly Five British Airways stewardesses, helping to launch the airline's London to Spain week, pose in the engine of the jumbo jet at London's Heathrow airport.

Provinces back food aid delegates who now hold the voting majority in the UN. Arafat was followed to the podium by Israeli Am- bassador Yosef Tekoah who in a harsh, openly bellicose speech vowed that Israel never will deal with the PLO or permit the establishment of PLO authority in any part of Palestine. Arafat's speech was skilful- ly sprinkled with references to peace, brotherhood and affec- tion for the Jewish people but nowhere did he indicate any compromise on a Middle East settlement. Some diplomats felt he mis- sed an opportunity to inch open the door to negotiation by displaying some interest, however slight, in the es- tablishment of a Palestinian state on the Israeli-occupied west bank of the River Jor- dan, which would allow the continued existence of Israel. But they conceded that the guerrilla leader was, in a sense, a man walking a tightrope, trying to strike a balance between moderate Arab leaders and the extreme militant elements which make up a good portion of his organization The PLO includes within its ranks seven active guerrilla groups, some moderate, some extreme, some Marxist. The organization is far from un- ited and Arafat, as chairman, often has trouble trying to control its members. His own guerrilla the largest unit in the PLO. The organization was form- ed 10 years ago in Jerusalem to act as the political representative of Palestinian Arabs. It developed a fighting force of its own and now has men serving alongside Arab armies, with a chief of staff and headquarters in Damascus, Syria. Arafat, a 44-year-old bachelor who is regarded by many Arabs as a moderate, won his greatest victory just a month ago when the Arab leaders, meeting at Rabat, Morocco, agreed to recognize his organization as the sole legitimate representative o( the Palestinian people ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD, JUIQlUMIf FIRE AUTO BONDS LIABILITY Established 1911 t.
