LONDON — Former British Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden declared Tuesday
night that the stand of Israel in demanding that the United Arab Republic honor its
agreements to keep the Suez Canal open to all peaceful commerce deserved "the gratitude
and support of all." •
The former Premier expressed his agreement with Israel's views on the Suez Canal
blockade to Israel cargoes in a message to the British Zionist Federation and the British
Section of Jewish Agency which were jointly honoring the departing Israel Ambassador,
to Britain, Eliahu Elath, and Mrs. Elath, at a dinner here.
Sir Anthony declared that UAR interference was "contrary to many international
undertakings which have been given and is therefore not only the concern of Israel. Res-
pect for engagements is indispensable to confidence among nations. In upholding this prin-
ciple Israel deserves gratitude and support from all."
Other messages were read from Sir Winston Churchill, Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd
and Labor leader Herbert Morrison. The dinner was addressed by Viscount Kilmuir, the
British Lord Chancellor; Emanuel Shinwell, former Labor War Minister, and Clement
Davies, Liberal leader. They lauded Elath as a diplomat and as a man.
Other speakers were Israel Sieff Barnett Janner, president of the Board of Deputies
of British Jews, and Sir Simon Marks, who presided. Others who came to pay tribute to
the departing envoy were Sir Frederick Hoy millar, permanent Under Secretary of State at
the Foreign Office; Sir Roger Stevens, Under Secretary; Dr. Yeshayahu Foeder, governor
to the Bank Leumi of Israel, and many Jewish and non-Jewish members of Parliament.

President Hears Civil Rights Group Report

on 'Patterns of Prejudice'
tee' in Housing

By MILTON FRIEDMAN

(Chief, JTA Washington Bureau)
(Copyright, 1959, JTA, Inc.)

WASHINGTON, (JTA)—The
United States Commission on
Civil Rights reported this week
to President Eisenhower that a
pattern of anti-Jewish prejudice
in housing exists in practically
the entire country.
The commission declared
"that the universal human phe-

nomenom of ancient, unreason-
ing prejudice is involved, and
not necessarily prejudice based
On color, is shown by the con-
tinuing discrimination against
Jews."
The report said that Jews
can, in most cases, get hous-
ing that is "equivalent in
quality" to that of other
whites. But testimony was
presented to the commission

that "in practically e v e r y
large city in the • United
States and in its suburbs
there is discrimination
against Jews in housing.
In New York City, over a
third of the 200 cooperative
apartment houses were said to
exclude Jews.
The Westchester suburb of
Bronxville was described as
having achieved the status that
"Hitler called `Judenrein'—free
of Jews."
In the nation's capital, there
were said to be 14 areas in
the District of Columbia and
its environs from which Jews
were excluded.
It was clear from the re-
port that the worst victim of
housing bias was the Negro.
Jews were unable to buy or
rent' in some neighborhoods,
but were able to find com-
fortable and reasonably-priced
housing elsewhere.
The report termed housing
"the one commodity on the
American market that is not
freely available on equal terms
to everyone who can afford
to pay."
The report declared that
"through its studies of three
particular aspects of civil
rights—voting, education, and
housing—the commission has
come to see the organic - na-
ture of the problem as a
whole. The problem is one of
securing the full rights of
citizenship to those AmeH-
cans who are being denied in
any degree that vital recog-
nition of human dignity, the
equal protection of the laws."
It pointed out that "to a
large extent this is now a
racial problem. In the past
there was widespread denial of
equal opportunity and equal
justice by reason of religion
or national origin. Some dis-
crimination against Jews re-
mains, particularly in housing,
and some recent immigrants
undoubtedly still have to over-
come prejudice.
"But with a single exception
the only denials of the right to
vote that have come to the at-
tention of the commission are
by reason of race or color.
This is also clearly the issue
in public education. In hous-
ing, too, it is primarily non-
whites who lack equal oppor.
tunity."
