Immigration Rule, Act on M. E.

WASHINGTON, (JTA)—The
Jewish War Veterans of Amer-
ica submitted to members of
both houses of Congress the
texts of resolutions adopted by
the organization at its annual
convention on national and in-
ternational issues.
Strongly criticizing the Mc-
Carran-Walter Immigration and
Naturalization Act which is in-
corporated in the present U.S.
immigration policy, the JWV
said that this Act "is based on
a biased national and racial
quota system, on retrogressive
immigration procedures and on
a wide variety of provisions
contrary to the American spirit
of fair play."
The JWV also submitted to
membeh of Congress its views
on a long-range American policy
for the settlement of the Middle
East crisis, These views took
into consideration that "the
economic welfare of Western
Europe depends on the steady
flow of oil from the Middle
East," and recommended

Israel and the Arab states which
shall include the resettlement of
the bulk of the Arab refugees in
the unpopulated Arab states, mak-
ing permanent the existing boun-
daries in the Middle East, and the
opening of the Suez Canal to Israel
shipping.
4. The United States, to raise the
living standards of the common man
in the Middle East, shall declare its
intentions to support an expanded
program of economic aid for the
Middle East countries which should
include immediate implementation
of the Johnson Plan for the De-
velopment of the Jordan River
Valley. It should also establish a
Middle East Development Agency
under UN auspices which should be
financed by a percentage of area
revenue from Middle East and
capital-exporting companies of the
world.
5. The United 'States, in concert
with the countries of Western
Europe, should provide the capital
for building of oil-pipelines of suf-
ficient size in Israel from Eilat to
the Mediterranean coast, thus re-
ducing Western Europe's depen-
dence on the Suez Canal for the
shipment of oil from the Persian
Gulf wells.
6. The United States shall declare
its intention to adopt a new policy
in the Middle East which will per-
mit the expansion of NATO by in-
viting the- countries of the Middle
East and North Africa to join NATO
with the understanding that these
nations subscribe to and support
the present treaty obligations of the
NATO countries.

1. The United States shall declare
its intentions to guarantee the terri-
torial integrity of the Arab states
and Israel against both direct and
indirect aggression, and shall, if
necessary, continue to maintain
troops in the area upon request of
any of these nations which is sub-
jected to such aggression.
2. The United States shall de-
clare its continued support for the
stationing of United Nations ob-
servers ' and police forces in the
Middle East to preserve territorial
integrity, thus permitting the de-
parture of American troops from
the area.
3. The United States shall stimu-
late peace negotiations between

A righteous man regardeth the
life of his beast;
But the tender mercies of the
wicked are cruel.
There is that speaketh like the
piercings of sword;
But the tongue of the wise is
health.
,
Lying lips are an abomination
to the Lord;
But they that deal truly are
His delight.
—Proverbs 12.

Hammarskjold Limits His Suez Activities to the Inge Toft Case

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—United
Nations Secretary General Dag
Hammarskjold is limiting his
present activities in connection
with the question of freedom
of passage of the Suez Canal
to an attempt to secure the re-
lease and passage of the Danish
freighter Inge Toft, informed
sources reported.
The Danish freighter has
been held at Port Said since
May 21. It carries a cargo of
cement and other items being
shipped from Israel to Far
Eastern destinations.
The United Nations official
was said to be limiting his
efforts to the Inge Toft case
following his failure to make
any progress at Cairo in induc-
ing President Nasser of the
United Arab Republic to comply
with United Nations Security
Council directives to permit
free passage of the interna-
tional waterway. It was under-
stood here that Hammarskjold
has not made any progress even
with his present limited ob-
jective.
Hammarskjold conferred with
Jacob Blaustein, honorary presi-
dent of the American Jewish
Committee, regarding matters
concerning the Middle East, in-
cluding the seizure by Egypt of
Israeli cargoes passing through
the Suez Canal.
It was officially announced
here that Foreign Minister
Golda Meir will head Israel's
delegation to the General As-
sembly, this year, and will go
to the United States for this
purpose about a week before

the Assembly's September 15
opening.
Mrs. Meir felt she should at-
tend the Assembly at least
during the first few weeks of
"general debate," when delega-
tion heads spell out the major
foreign policies of their gov-
ernments. She then plans on

returning home to participate
in the election campaign. Later,
she might return to the United
Nations to participate in the
expected debate on the Arab
refugee problem.
Sharing the delegation work
with Mrs. Meir this year will
be Israel's acting permanent
representative at the United
Nations, Yosef Tekoah; Michael
