WASHINGTON, March 14--The United States signaled a resumption of economic aid to Israel today in a new way seemingly calculated to pressure Egypt into closer cooperation with efforts to pacify the Middle East.
State Department press officer Lincoln White disclosed at a news conference that consultation on resuming aid to Israel would start shortly. He said he expected the aid would be resumed after these consultations got under way.
But the press officer went blank when asked whether Egypt and Jordan could expect similar treatment. U.S. aid to these two Arab states was suspended at the same time as aid to Israel--when the Oct. 29 fighting broke out.
Langley Invokes Amendment
WASHINGTON, March 14--Poker-faced William Langley, district attorney of Portland, Ore., took the Fifth Amendment before the Senate committee investigating rackets today and refused to testify about gambling and prostitution in his bailiwick.
He listened to tape recordings of what purported to be conversations between him and a pair of gamblers but refused to say whether he recognized his own voice.
