  • Description

    ABOUT 800 ISRAELI OFFICIALS -- INCLUDING GIRLS -- ESCORTED BY ARMED POLICE WITH SUB-MACHINE GUNS, MOVED INTO THE TWISTING ALLEYWAYS OF OLD JERUSALEM YESTERDAY (MONDAY) TO TAKE A CENSUS OF THE CONQUERED JORDANIAN SECTOR. A DAWN-TO-DUSK CURFEW WAS IMPOSED TO MAKE THE CENSUS EASIER, IN THE OLD CITY, ITS SUBURBS AND NEARBY VILLAGES.

    SOLDIERS WITH LOUD-HAILERS BLARED THE WARNING THAT CURFEW-BREAKERS WOULD BE ARRESTED AND TRIED BY SUMMARY COURTS. IN ONE COBBLED STREET AN ARAB YOUTH, CAUGHT BY A PATROL, WAS ABOUT TO BE TAKEN AWAY WHEN THE CRIES OF HIS HYSTERICAL MOTHER SOFTENED THE HEART OF HIS CAPTORS AND THEY LET HIM OFF WITH A STERN WARNING.

    THE CENSUS WAS ORIGINALLY PLANNED FOR 10 DAYS AGO, BUT ISRAELI AUTHORITIES DELAYED IT. ALL THE OFFICIALS WERE FLUENT IN ARABIC, AND SOME OF THE CENSUS TAKERS TOLD REPORTERS THAT THEY FOUND THE PEOPLE EXTREMELY CO-OPERATIVE AND HOSPITABLE.
