Baker is [WORDS ILLEGIBLE] the 1980 Republic [WORDS ILLEGIBLE] Yesterday [WORD ILLEGIBLE] that he believes [WORDS ILLEGIBLE] has made itself [WORDS ILLEGIBLE] to apprehension [WORDS ILLEGIBLE] about its Middle East policy. The Senator said he has [WORD ILLEGIBLE] "disturbed by recent press [WORD ILLEGIBLE] about a confrontation between the administration and the American Jewish community . . ." "I would be very unhappy," Baker said. "If American Jews, or if any other group of Americans, felt that they were under pressure to soften their views because they did not happen to be in accord with those of the President of the United States." Tonight President Carter is scheduled to address the same group, the General Council of the World Jewish Congress with about 300 delegates from 30 countries. Andrew Young U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, who addressed the convention about two hours after Baker, commended the President for boldness in trying to achieve an Arab Israeli peace settlement. The role of an honest broker," Young said, "usually means that you are halted by both sides" at times. But Carter, Young said "ignoring the political consequences for a time." has set out on a course "that would really and truly preserve the security and integrity of the nation of Israel." "And I don't think there has been for one moment a waver in that commitment," said Young. There exists for the time, Young said, "a realization on all sides that there is no military solution to the problems of the Middle East" and that "a certain flexibility and creativity is necessary in exploring possible ways of guaranteeing true peace for Israel and her neighbors." It was Baker, however, who was frequently interrupted by applause. He charged that the Americans Soviet Oct. 1 formula for a Geneva conference "reflects in consideralbe degree the position of the Arab states as to the nature and shape of an ultimate settlement of the Arab-Israeli deispute." Baker said the U.S. Soviet statement, which raised an outcry from Israel when it was issued, "seems to violate the written agreement between Israel and the United States binding the two parties to consult closely as to any arrangements made in reference to the Geneva Peace conference." The Carter administration sought to assure Israel, American Jewish leaders, and members of Congress last month that the declaration did not undermine Israel's interest. To bring the Soviet Union inot preparations for Geneva at some point was necessary, the administration said, because the United States and the Soviet Union co-chair the conference. Young said yesterday that "we had a very bad experience" Monday night in the U.N. Security Council. The Soviet Union and China supported resolutions calling for sweeping sanctions against South Africa: the United States, Britain and France vetoed the resolutions. "It just doesn't make sense," Young said, "to try to isolate" nations "so powerful" in today's world because they have the capacity "to undermine and to destroy the fragile beginnings of peace . . ." Baker, however, said the United States, without knowing what the outcome will be in Geneva, has reversed the "painstaking and brilliantly executed negotiations" of former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger for keeping Soviet power out of the Middle East where it has "encouraged . . . unpheaveal." "I believe we should know in advance what we are likely to be able to do with" the Geneva peace conference, Baker said. "I do not think we should play Russians roulette with the future peace of all mankind." Baker said that "rather than push for an unrealistic piece of political theater and arouse expectations that are bound to be disappointed," the United States should first establish a sound basis for a Geneva conference. "We should go to Geneva only when . . . a framework for peace acceptable to all of those who have interests in the area has been designed and put in place." Administration policy, he said arouses "the enormous assumption, the erroneous assumption, that the United States is casting aside the only democratic state in the Middle East . . ." Baker said "if that misapprenhension . . . if that mistaken view is permitted to flourish. I think it would be the most destructive aspect of foreign policy for the United States since World War II." "So Whether it is true or false," he continued "whether it's true in part or false in part, it is incumbent on this administration to remove any doubt as to where the United States stands on the continuing prosperity, peace and existenceof the state of Israel." Young who was not present for the Baker broadside, said there can be no doubt where the Carter administration stands on Israel. He said. "The goals and objectives of this administration are identical with the goals and objectives of Harry Truman when he recognized Israel in 1948. CAPTION: Picture, HOWARD H.
