(Studio) Egyptian newspaper in Cairo says Israel doesn't have nuclear bomb; makes Arabs believe otherwise. If Israel gets one, Arabs will correct balance. Israel says bomb talk is Soviet inspired and calculated to make Israel give in to Arabs. Israel hasn't denied possession of bomb.
REPORTER: Chet Huntley
(DC) Israel couldn't have bomb without United States knowing, since United States has contract to inspect Israel's nuclear plants under Eisenhower-Adams agreement by which countries obtaining uranium from United States agree to have plants inspected. One of Israel's plants comes under agreement; other one doesn't need United States materials; uranium comes from South Africa.
