ROME, (JTA) - Italy's Flat Motor Co., under an Arab Blacklist threat, is refusing Arab demands to fire three employes of the Turin newspaper La Stampa which it owns, including the Jewish editor, Arrigo Levi. The demands and threats from the Arab Boycott Committee in Beirut followed the recent publication of humorous references to President Muammar elQaddafi of Libya which Qaddafi did not consider funny. Flat'i Interests in

Libya, an Italian colony before World War II, are valued at t30 million. Its business Uiroughoul the Arab world is much greater. Qaddafi whs Uie butt of humor in a column written for La Stampa by Carlo Fruttero and Franco LucenUni. His ire appears to have been aroused as much by Uie fact that e<|itor Levi Is Jewish and fought for Israel as a volunteer during Uie 1948 war as by what the two humorists said about him. The latter Included tongue-in-cheek

suggestions that Qaddafi, who makes much of his Moslem austerity, was a secret homosexual, kept a harem of 48 wives in Switzerland, and ate pork, forbidden to Moslems. The news staff of La Stampa and Its afternoon edlUon, Stampa Sera, has backed Levi and denounced Uie Arab blackmail attempts. Their managing editor issued a statement thanking them for Uieir support and declared there was no pressure from Flat to fire anybody.

heart, "See how (he people de suffer. See bow dirty Is the Water hi the Gate. VerUy, we will find tratb aad righteousaesi." So a committee was called in Congress, and Ervin presided thereover, and the nation watched by day and by night. And the nation heard and was vexed. The Water in the Gate was dirty. And there arose from the nation an outcry against the President, but he spoke not a word, nor was he indicted. Then the heat of summer grew strong, and people could not stand it. They turned from their televisions to their vacations, but all was not well, for the gas tanks were hungry in the land. The Chief of the many oil tribes of America conspired together and said, "Cdme, let ua deal wisely with each other. Let us create a small oil shortage so that we may reap a profit thereby." And they turned down the volume of tlieh refineries and reaped a handsome hicreaie in prices. And the people of the Land of America paid 40 cents for regular, yet a mb-acle happrncd, and they drove thouiands of miles on ten galiona a day. Bnt no indictments came down. And just as the last leaves of summer began to turn thrown, a horrible blight fell upon the land, and he was called the Vice President, whose name was Agnew. Behoia, he was a brave man, who called many people names, especially the television networks. But the blight grew worse, and all the nation knew that something was rotten in the State of Maryland. So the Attorney General journeyed with the Vice President an hour's drive, and Behold, an indictment came (Jown a^ he proved tax evasion and collusion was the Vice President's lot, and strict judgment was rendered, yea, the strictest judgment in the Land. And to! Agnew went out of office. But the President was a blameless and upright man and kept his lilence. He woald not turn over the tapes, bnt he would fire his Attoraey GenersI and his most special Watergate prosecutor because they deaH honestly with him. And when the nation hesrd sf the firing, there was a jnlghty crash on the Street of the WaU In (he City of New York, and the stocks came a-tambllBf down. In the mi&of the outcry was heard a roar from the east, the sound of war between the Children of Israel

and the Sons of the Egyptian*, and it was a horrible battle. The battle raged fair long, and lo! six days passed and there was no end. Then the Children of Israel struck a mighty blow with an outstretched arm and a Phantom Jet, and they began to go down to Cairo. But the President's Minister,. named Kissinger, called out to Moaes: "Thou ahalt not cross over this lOlat kilometer, or thou wilt flight akme next time." And liie Moses known as Dayan trembled and ceased hii fighting. Then the Sons of the Egyptians declared a great victory and celebrated it by sending food to their Third Army, vacationing behind Israeli lines. The President's Minister flew hither and yon, crossing the Jordan many times, and he was called a peacemaker. Yet the sons of Esau would not be still, and they did cut the oil supply of Jh* wortd. Then did speak the chiefs of the oil tribes of America, saying "You see how sore is the famine of oil? And we did not create it." And then did speak the sons of Neville Chamberlain and the sons of Hitler anS the sons of Vichy, France and the sons of Hirohito, and they did favor the cause of the Egyptians, but still the sons of Esau did dry up the oil in the Persian Gulf. In the meantime, the blameless and upright Nixaa had got himself an iacompelent secretary, and she did erase all that was good In the eyes of the Judge that sst upon the special tape recordhigs. The people of the Land of America were in wonderment, for they did not understand how such a grievous error could have been made. But the President, Mr. Nixon, was not silent, and in the House of White on the Avenue of Pennsylvania In the District of Columbia was heard the beginning of Operation Candor. But the people did not believe. So all the world began to suffer sorely form the famine. The Children of Europe and Asia could bum no oil, the Children of Israel could not end their mobilization; the people of the Land of America had no gas, no bread, ndf meat, nor paper, nor trust in the President. And so It happened that hi the Sth year of the reign 9l Nixon there were many famines, but the greatest shortsge of all was a shortage of JasUce.
