(JTA)—Plans to revise a Good Friday prayer in the AngUcan prayerbook considered of¬ fensive to Jews were disclosed this week by Right Rev. J.R. Hunt, suffragan bishop of Toronto. He said that a mo¬ tion for such revision was approved by the 200 delegates at the Anglican synod's executive council meeting. The Good Friday prayer includes the petition "have mercy on the Jews" and "take from them all ignorance, hardness of heart and contempt of the Word," Bishop Hunt said that it was agreed that it was "desirable that such negative words in reference to a people be replaced by posi¬ tive words of Christian charity and warm concern." BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — Strong Federal legislation di¬ rected against anti-Semites who have been, for a long-time, stirring hatred in this country, was proposed to the Argen¬ tine Congress here this week by President Arturo Ilia.

The countries were Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru.

A series of contradictory announcemenl.s emerged from the conference on the issue.

Egyptian who heads the unified Arab command to fight Israel, authority to move troop.s under his command to any Arab country to counter an Israeli riposte. The possibility of such a riposte stemmed from Arab plans to di¬ vert tributaries in their countries of the Jordan River and thus deny ils waters to Israel. Initially, the Alexandria con¬ ference apparently approved a res¬ olution giving Marshal Amor auth¬ ority to move Arab military forces to other Arab countries "in case of war." But later, it appeared that Lebanon, queasy about the idea of Egyptian troops on its soil, had qualified that right by specifying that its government first had to consult its Parliament on such a move. Another problem was that both Jordan and Lebanon are basically equipped with Western armaments, while Egypt has Soviet-made wea¬ pons. The Nasser plan apparently would have tied the Jordanian and Lebanese weapons systems into the Soviet types. The 13 Arab rulers agreed to spend up to $14,000,000 annually to strengthen the forces commanded by Marshal Amer, a trivia] sum measured by the costs of modern Chronicling The News Editorial 2 Real Estate 4 Teen Scene 4 Shopping Guide 5 Synagogues 5 Society 6, 7 Sports 9, 10 weapons. President Elect Charles Halou of Ix.>banon warned against pre¬ mature execution of the headwater diversion plan through construction of a dam in Jordan. He insisted that only Egypt was strong enough to fight Israel and that Jordan, Lebanon and Syria might have to bear the brunt of an IsraeU at¬ tack "before the Egyptians had time" to defeat Israel, Tho Arab rulers approved the in¬ formation of an army of Palestin¬ ian refugees but put off implement¬ ing that decision for the time be¬ ing. A spokesman said that Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq had pledged funds to finance the pro- prosed Arab refugee army and that Nasser had offered territory in the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza Strip for training the proposed army. Its purpose would be to seek to regain "the territory of Palestine" from Israel. Mrs. Jack Resler AUXILIARY CHAIRMAN TO LEAVE OFFICE AT ANNUAL TEA Mrs. Jack Resler, 220 S.
