HOFFMAN WASHINGTON United States intelligence re- ports say Poland is sending members of Its elite paratrpop division to Egypt ostensibly to provide logistics support for the United Nations Emergency Force. These reports say about 800 members of Poland's crack 6th Airborne Division are to be deployed to Egypt. The first elements were said to have in Cairo recently. It was unclear what the Pol- ish motive might be in sending parachute troops instead of ordinary units. But U.S. military sources called it a strange assignment for these Polish airborne which they said are specially trained for parachute operations behind enemy lines. U S. sources noted that the Polish approved by the United Nations Securi- ty Council after a U.S.-Soviet are supposed to handle road vehicle maintenance and other rear- area duties for the international peacekeeping force. The UN forces mission is to stand between Egyptian and Israeli forces on both sides of the Suez canal to police the UN-ordered ceasefire. Its members are authorized to fire in self-defence. This could cover resistance to any armed efforts to prevent the UN force from doing its duty. It is not known what kinds of weapons the Polish airborne troops are bringing. The United States has been opposed to the presence of So- viet or other Warsaw pact combat troops in the tense Middle East area.

He failed in that attempt. And that Lt. Gen. Phaidon replac- ed him as the second president in Greek history. As tanks rolled through the streets of Athens and steel- helmeted troops blocked the roads of Greeks watching the state-controled television Sunday saw for the first time the face of their new a soft- almost lelf-effacing as he took the oath of of- fice. SEASONED SOLDIER For most and par- ticularly most foreign the as well as the men behind is very much an enigma his politics difficult to discern beyond the facts of the life of a seasoned career soldier. definitely a Conser- said a now colleague of who last saw the General six years ago as a Greece's new president com- manded a small Greek army regiment know that his feelings at the time in the army were definitely in favor of the King And reports are that he is still lor the king But some of i his actions seem to belie this. On Dec. 23. 1917. when King Censtantine broadcast from the command post of the first ar- his plea to the armed forces to join him in overthrowing the eight- month-old the then Colonel Gizikis failed to join him.
