Around Us U S Has a Friend in Amjad AH Number 74 EDITORS is one of a series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world How people live and how they feel toward America are more

governor were among the other guests on that unforget table evening five years ago Much of the conversation today had to do with India and with the Suez Since I was present as a friend and guest not as a report er I shall not presume to re produce Mr Alis views on these highly controversial subjects I can report however that our country has a loyal friend in this man who served as spokesman for his nation in those critical years when it was breaking out of its colonial status to fullflow W Earl Halt ON COMPROMISE PROPOSAL Quick Answer Sought From Israeli WASHINGTON United States sought Tuesday a quick answer from Israel to an Ameri can compromise proposal for breaking the deadlock over withdrawal of remaining Israeli troops from Egypt The plan was presented to Is raeli Ambassador Abba Eban Monday by Secretary of State Dulles reportedly with a re quest for a prompt reply The compromise would pro vide for an immediate United States declaration of support for free navigation of the Gulf of Aqaba by Israeli and all other ships and for American back ing of United Nations action to secure Israel against any fu ture Egyptian attack from the Gaza Strip This offer of United States assurances falls short of the with respect to Israeli interests in Gaza and Aqaba However the United States governments view is said to be that although the Israeli request for firm guarantees is under standable there is no prospect of getting the commitments from either Egypt or the United Nations The American compromise has been put forth therefore in the hope that it will provide enough assurance of support for Israeli interests that Israel will be willing to withdraw even without the guarantees The alternative to Israeli agreement to this or some simi lar proposition is regarded here as being a showdown over Arab Asian demands for U N sanc tions against Israel ABBA EBAN Elijah Plan Rejected by Senate ALL THIS AND AN AWARD Mansfield carries jockey Johnny Longdon in her arms
