THE COMMUNIST BLOC USSR-Geneva talks: Moscow apparently believes . that both Geneva conferences are entering the final stage and is maneuvering for the strongest possible positions in the event of an early breakoff. Bloc delegates are seeking to establish a record which they hope will place the onus for any failure to reach agreement on the West. There have been no hints of any major changes in bloc proposals at either con- ference. USSR-UAR: Negotiations begun this summer for the sup- ply of additional bloc arms to Egypt are still in progress in Moscow. In addition to jet fighter aircraft, Cairo is seeking naval equipment and probably a wide range of land armaments. Deliveries contracted for earlier in these negotiations are now under way, with at least three Soviet merch.m+ chirl� onhieI uled to transport arms to Alexandria shortly. IL ASIA-AFRICA UAR alert reduced: Cairo on 25 November called off the precautionary alert of UAR forces instituted in late Octo- ber in anticipation of a crisis in Jordan. Units were instructed to revert to their previous state of readiness, with the excep- tion of Egyptian forces in Sinai which will remain on alert.

The disgruntled elements, however, appear to be primarily members of conservative groups. Current reforms are largely di- rected against their vested interests, and neither Nasir nor the Syrian Baathists have ever counted on their polit- ical support. Even if unrest develops to the point of open violence, UAR security measures nnear aciPnuatp fn maintain control in Syria uncuid: rrime minister Nxruman nas incticatea tnat if he does not receive the assistance he desires from the West to implement the 50,000,000 Volta River hydro- electric-aluminum project, upon which his regime is count- ing heavily, he will do "all possible" to get such assistance from "any source anywhere." A spokesman for Nkrumah said offers of technical assistance and machinery from Po- land and Czechoslovakia are already being considered and that Nkrumah would be "reluctantly" receptive to major help from Moscow if it is not forthcoming frnm thp Wt 1Pae 5) III. THE WEST Uruguay: The Colorado party, which has dominated the government for almost a century, is likely to suffer severe losses in the 30 November general elections because of widespread discontent over economic conditions. The party's fear of losing control of the nine-man executive coun- cil as well as of Congress has led to talk of a preventive coup, but the party is probably willing to rely on its organizational ability and the advantages it expegain at the polls from its recent pro-labor measures.
