Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Israel arms aid review needed UNITED NATIONS (AP) U.S. State Secretary William P. Rogers said Thursday the United Slates must "carefully reconsider" its military com- mitments to Israel because of a new Soviet promise of more military aid to Egypt. Rogers made the statement to reporters after a one-hour con- ference with Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban, who said a Soviet promise to Egypt would upset the military balance in the Middle East unless Israel got new U.S. planes. Rogers deplored the reference in a joint Soviet-Egyptian com- munique in Moscow Wednesday in which, he said, the Soviet Union indicated that it will The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE strengthen Egypt's military might. "In the light of he con- tinued, "we will have to care- fully reconsider our position, particularly in view of Presi- dent Nixon's statement that the military balance in the Middle East should not change." Rogers clearly was referring to Israel's request for more American Phantom jet fighter planes. He said the Soviet com- munique was "particularly un- fortunate when the United States is seeking an Egyptian-Israeli interim agree- ment to reopen the Suez canal. Eban told reporters the mili- tary balance in the Middle East "can only be maintained if ship- ments of American aircraft to Israel are resumed."

Teachers in two southern Youth revolt possible TORONTO (CP) A bloody youth revolution in the streets is possible in the next few years if unemployment continues to rise. Paul Hellyer, leader of the fledging Action Canada political party, says. Mr. Hellyer, former federal Liberal cabinet minister, told the Toronto Junior Board of Trade: "I've talked to a lot of young people and I know a lot of alien- tation and disenchantment ex- ists." He warned that unless his party's economic formula of full employment and an end to infla- tion through wage and price control is enacted, one of the se- rious alternatives to the present up the cost of living, he said. economic "instability" would be crease on to consumers, driving 'revolution in the streets."

Ti-ustces in these areas have rejected inclusion of the clause. Mr. Hellyer warned that less the circle is broken, ecu-1 nomic disaster is imminent.
