The poll was conducted among' 1601 persons in 300 localities around the country between March 13 and 16. Forty percent of those polled reported "highly favorable" opinions of Jews as against 33 percent who were asked the same question in 1975. The poll also found that the climate for Jews seeking political office improved dramatically during the last decade. In 1973,46 percent of Americans polled said they would vote for a Jewish Presidential candidate. In 1978, the figure was 82 percent. From 1968 to 1978, the proportion of Americans who approved of' marriages between Jews and non-Jews rose from 59 percent to 69 percent, according to the poll. Only two percent of the sample interviewed last month had highly unfavorable opinions of Jews. Favorable attitudes were reported by 46 percent of Catholics and 39 percent of Protestants. Asked if they thought Jews were trying to get too much power in the U.S., 12 percent of Protestants and 13 percent of Catholics replied in the affirmative, compared to 35 • percent of Protestants and 33 percent of Catholics asked the same question in 1952. According to the Gallup organization, the growth of religious tolerance in the U.S. parallels the increase in the number of college-educated persons. Each survey found the college-educated more tolerant than those with less formal education. Israel Mules Reaction To Reports That Reaqan Sent Cable To Assad TEL AVIV (JTA)-Israel had a guarded reaction last week to reports that President Reagan sent a personal cable to President Hafez Assad of Syria hailing the rolerPamascus could'plaTin' achieving peace in the Middle East. The Reagan message was disclosed in Beirut by Beshir Gemayel, commander of the right-wing Christian Phalangists, who accused the U.S. of giving its blessings to the partition in Lebanon. The Phalangists have been battling Syrian forces in Lebanon in recent weeks. (There was no Immediate comment by the White > House on Reagan's reported cable sent on occasion of Syria's National Day.) Observers here said it appeared to be an attempt by the U.S. to balance the sharp criticism of Syria by Secretary of State Alexander Haig when he was in Jerusalem'recently. At that time', Haig denounced the Syrian shelling of the Christian town of Zahle in central Lebanon as "brutal." Israeli observers insisted, however, that the contradictory statements should not be' taken as a sign that the Reagan Administration is following the "zig-zag" policy that the Carter Administration had been accused of. As if to' empha-* size this "view, Premier Menachem Begin, in a television interview last week, hailed Haig's remarks and said he was pleased that the U.S. now regarded Syria as a Soviet base. Begin claimed that Syria has been supplied with more than> 2000- "modern- Soviet- made tanks,- that the Soviets have stockpiled over 1000 T-62 and T-72 tanks in Syria for their own strategic use and another 2000 tanks in Libya. In Washington, State Department spokesman Dean Fischer denied that U.S. policy was aimed at getting the Syrians to withdraw their forces from "Lebanon. At the same time, he said the U.S.' wanted the Lebanese army to take over "security functions" in the entire country."
