Ambassador Eban Clarifies

Israel's Position Before the
Near East U. of M. Institute

A situation within the Sum-
mer Institute on the Near East,
at the University of Michigan,
where it has been held. that "as
far as Palestine was concerned,
history had stopped with the
destruction of the Second Tem-
ple," is believed to have changed
with the invitation extended to
Israel's Ambassador Abba Eban
to deliver an address before the
Institute on July 20.
Hitherto, almost invariably,
Arab and subtly pro-Arab lec-
turers constituted t h e main
corps of speakers addressing
this, one of the largest institutes
on Near- East of any of the uni-
versities in America, at Ann

On June 29, Prof. George G.
Cameron, head of the Depart-
ment of Near East at the Uni-
versity of Michigan, invited
Ambassador Eban to a lecture
on !'Near East, Past and. Fu-
ture." This biought about the
radical change at the Institute.

The Ambassador was greeted
at the Willow Run Airport by
grofessors Cameron and Paper,
of the Near- East Department,
and a delegation representing
the Ann Arbor and Detroit Jew-
ish communities; including Osa-
ias Zwerdling, president of Ann
Arbor Beth Israel Center and
honorary. president of the U. of
M. Hillel Foundation; Dr. Her-
man Jacobs, Hillel director;
Rabbi Julius Weinberg, of the
Beth Israel Synagogue and Cen-
ter; r Meyer Silverman and B. M.
Joffe, representing the Jewish
Community Council of Detroit.

Why No Israel-Arab
Direct Negotiations?

At a press conference the Am-
bassador answered questions pro-
pounded by some 30 interview-
ers. --
Mr. kban noted that during
the last . two or three years,
there were„,:successful reconcilia-
tions of several • international
disputes; including the dispute
between Great -Britain and Iran
with regard to oil, between
Yugoslavia and Italy with re-
gard to Trieste; the Korean dis-
pute, the partial solution of the
Indo-China problem in Geneva,
andv the settlement of the inde-
pendence of Austria, in Vienna.
He underlined that all of these

disputes were the result of di-
rect negotiations, "on the sum-
mit, on the slopes, or in the
valleys." Arab-Israel differences
are the only ones that have not
reached the state of negotiations,
said Mr. Eban.

"Anybody who refuses to
submit •to direct negotiations,
swims against the tide of con-
temporary trends towards the
settlement of disputes by ne-
gotiations, and Israel is ready -
and anxious to partake in
such negotiations, but not the
Arab States," he stated.
