    THE ISRAELI FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. ABBA EBAN, FLEW FROM SWEDEN TO FINLAND YESTERDAY (MONDAY) - TO BE MET BY MORE OF THE PRO-ARAB DEMONSTRATIONS THAT HAVE MARKED HIS CURRENT SCANDINAVIAN TOUR. HIS OBJECT IN FINLAND, HE SAYS, IS TO DISCUSS THE SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND TO EXPLAIN ISRAEL'S POLICIES.

    AS IN OSLO, ON THE FIRST STAGE OF THE TOUR, MR. EBAN'S ARRIVAL IN STOCKHOLM HAD BEEN HERALDED BY SHOUTS OF 'EBAN - MURDERER'. THEN ON SUNDAY NIGHT, DEMONSTRATORS TRIED TO STORM THE BUILDING WHERE MR. EBAN WAS ADDRESSING A SWEDEN-ISRAEL SOCIETY.

    HIS ARRIVAL IN HELSINKI WAS RATHER QUIETER. THERE TO GREET MR. EBAN AND HIS WIFE WAS THE FINNISH FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. AHTI KARJALAINEN, AGAIN WITH HIS WIFE. A NUMBER OF SPECTATORS ALSO GAVE HIM A FAVOURABLE WELCOME, AND IT WASN'T UNTIL THE PARTY REACHED MR. EBAN'S HOTEL THAT THEY MET WITH ANY ADVERSE DEMONSTRATIONS.

    MR. EBAN LATE HAD LUNCH WITH MR. KARJALAINEN, A NUMBER OF DISCUSSIONS AND SOCIAL VISITS FILLED THE AFTERNOON, AND A RECEPTION MARKED THE EVENING. TODAY (TUESDAY) HE WILL MEET PRIME MINISTER MAUNO KOIVISTO AND DINE WITH PRESIDENT KEKKONEN. HIS NORDIC TOUR WILL END WITH A VISIT TO DENMARK TOMORROW (15 MAY).
