U. N. Truce Chief Confers with Israeli After Damascus Visit

Col. Byron V. Leary, Acting Chief of Staff of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization, called yesterday on Joseph Tekoah, Israeli Foreign Ministry official in charge of armistice affairs. While a Foreign Ministry spokesman later denied that the visit was related to recent Syrian developments, it was noted here that Col. Leary conferred with Mr. Tekoah immediately after a meeting in Damascus with Maj. Gen. Afif Bizri, new leftist Syrian Army Chief of Staff.
