Samuel Stroum, General Campaign Chairman, expressed himself as satisfied with the Lquality of the solicit,tat,on we ive to date but, he said, "We )/vi::,,manpower in the Men's To highlight this need, he ade an immediate appeal for solicitors (see full-page adver- tisement page 7 this issue) to help solicit "a good many impor- tant cards" that still have not been contacted. Emphasizing that time was running out, Mr. Stroum urged all concerned Jews in the community to give up a small portion of their time, a day or maybe even only a few hours, to solicit cards. "The absence of a sufficient number of solicitors is the criti- cal lack in our Campaign," he said."I cannot see how anyone who professes to be at all con- cerned with the situation in Is- rael as well as the needs in our own developing community, can hang back and not offer his ser- vices at this critical time," he said. He urged anyone con- cerned with "the fate of Israel" to telephone the Jewish Fedora- tion and Council office: MAin 2- 8211, immediately and tell them "I want to solicit; please send me my cards." Meanwhile Mrs. Paul Jassny, Chairman of the Women's Divi- sion, paid tribute to Mrs. Esther Eggleston, and her Co-Chair- man, Mrs. Freda Deitch; and Mrs. Richard Leshgold and her Co-Chairman, Mrs. Irwin Ca- plan, for their prodigious efforts in organizing successful Busi- ness. and Professional, and Trendsetter's functions.

Mr. Eban told a news conference that "the bal- ance of armaments today is not the same as on March 23 when Secretary of State Rogers made his interim announcement re- garding the sale of planes to Is- rael." Mr. Rogers said at the time that a decision on Israel's request for more Phantom and Skyhawk jets was being held in abeyance because in the Ameri- can view, Israel still retains de- cisive air superiority over the Arabs. He acknowledged that the in- flux of Soviet technicians to Egypt has increased in recent weeks. They are said to be man- ning the SAM-3 anti-aircraft missiles that Moscow has provided to Egypt. Diplomatic sources in London claim that more than 12,000 Rus- sians have poured into Egypt in recent weeks to operate the SAM-;] missiles. The influx has raised to 16,000 the number of Russian personnel presently in Egypt these sources said. They estimate that a small nucleus of Soviet technicians will operate the missiles while others train Egyptians in their operation. But the bulk of the force, perhaps as much as a Soviet infantry divi- sion, will be deployed on defen- sive duties around the SAM mls- site sites. Four such silos have already been built around Alex- andria, Egypt's main seaport which is used by Russian naval units. Others have gone up around Cairo West airport where Soviet supplies are airlifted and around the Aswan High Dam. (In London, the Daily Tele- graph correspondent Eric Down- ton writes from Beirut that Syria is pressing the Soviet govern- ment for SAM-3 missiles for the defense of Damascus. He said the Syrians renewed their re- quest for the anti-aircraft mis- siles when they learned of their installation in Egypt.) Egyptian Weapon Sites To Be "Pounded" Even If Manned By Russian Personnel NEW YORK, April (JTA)- The Chief of Staff of Israel's armed forces believes the most serious problem in the Middle East today, especially for Amer- ica, is the Sovietization of Egypt. But, he told Time Magazine cor- respondent Marlin Levin in Jeru- salem, that Israel's Air Force will continue to pound Egyptian weapon sites west of the Suez Canal even if they are manned by Russians. Gen. Bar Lev said Soviet troops will be operating in Egypt not only as advisers and techni- cians but as ordinary troops op- erating weapons systems. "This, to my mind, is the most serious problem for the U.S. particular- ly," he said. He said Israel does not view the new SAM-3 anti-air- craft missiles as a defensive weapon. "They are being in- stalled to give Egypt an offen- sive capability. Once the mis- silos are installed, Egypt will feel freer to do whatever she wants," he said. "Our deep penetrations def- initely disturb these prepara- tions," he said. "Large amounts of equipment have been de- stroyed. The Egyptians have been forced to move back anti- aircraft and artillery to protect themselves not only on the canal but also west of Cairo," he said.
