Will There will have to be a bit of generalizing of course with some jumping at conclusions on the basis of too little evidence And I begin by recalling that on the dozen or more stops in eight different Asian countries begin ning with Indonesias island re public I have experienced no gesture or act of ill will based on the fact that I am obviously an American That does not mean that Asians

Clarification of Proposals JERUSALEM Israeli Sector are clarification of the proposals on freedom of navigation in the Gulf of Aqaba and safeguards for the security of the Gaza Strip This was reported at the For eign Ministry as the Israeli cab inet postponed for one day a scheduled meeting to consider the American proposals designed to get Israeli troops back behind the Israeli Egyptian armistice line Foreign Ministry sources said some points in the American plan are regarded as too vague and Abba Eban the ambassador to Washington had been asked to seek clarification The cabinet will meet Thursday with Premier David BenGurion to consider the U S plan U S Secretary of State Dulles communicated the proposals to Eban on Monday His idea was thatthe United States would sup port free navigation in the Gulf of Aqaba if Israel withdraws from the gun positions once used by Egypt to block its mouth and would use its influence to have U N police or large observer forces stationed in the Gaza Strip of Palestine to prevent its being used as an Egyptian base for com mando raids on Israel Schools Bill Is Argued House Fails to Reach Decision DES MOINES The House spent so much time Wednesday in disposing of amendments that it failed to reach a final vote on an important bill proposing change in school reorganization lections The House adjourned for the day after adopting one amend ment and defeating two The original bill would provide hat in school reorganization elec ions where all districts involved vote separately if 75 per cent o he districts approve and the overall vote is favorable any dis scnting district or districts woulc be included in the consolidated district The present law provides that he dissenting districts are lef out Educational leaders contenc hat the result is many Islands are left They mean that where dissenting districts are left out hey become surrounded by other arger consolidated districts This he educators say results in at undesirable situation 300 Minimum Rep Curtis Riehm bought unsuccessfully to amenc he bill so as to permit a schoo district which meets the minimum of 300 students and has a high school to be left out of a

freedom or democ racy Theres general agreement that Nehru could have taken In dia into the Communist camp if he had wished and theres a corollary fear that his successor may have such a wish It follows that Asians are a bit resentful of our critical attitude tovyard their neutralism But the point of real importance is that until the general education level here is greatly elevated a limited
