Arab delegates at, the United -Nations:are jittery these days
.. . The problem of the Arab refugees is coming up for dis-
eusSian at the UN Generals Assembly and- the Arab delegates
have good grounds to fear that the outcome will not be in their
favor . They will of course, reiterate - the old arguments
that the Palestine refugees should be. permitted to return - to
Israel . . . But these arguments are losing ground . . ; This year
the Arab delegations are faced with a report by UN Secretary
General - Dag Hammarskjold recommending the absorption of
the Arab refugees into constructive -developments in the area
. . It means that the Arab refugee -camps should gradually- be
liquidated and the refugees there should . be trainedior work
useful in- the Arab countries -. . This recommendation has the
backing of the United States Government, which contributes the
largest share of the Millions of dollars spent by _the UN to
maintain the - Arab refugee camps . -. And the Arab delegates
know that the U.S. may drastically reduce its financial support
for these camps, unless something is done to integrate the
refugees in the Arab countries as useful elements . . The
recommendation to start integration of the refugees was made
by Hammarskjold not - without prior consultation with the gov-
ernments of the United Arab- Republic and of Jordan . . More
than 85 percent of the Arab refugees live in these two countries
and their delegates are now busy sounding out the exact position
of the United States on the issue . . . Thin, despite the fact that
they know in advance that the ,Hammarskjold recommendation
to integrate ;he refugees reflects the U.S. stand . . . What they
fear most is, that if the Hammarskjold report is approved at
the present session of the UN Assembly—which is likely—then
basic steps would follow to implement this recommendation

LONDON, (JTA)-Field Mar,

- "No force can stand up
against us," the UAR military
commander stated in his broad-
cast, "even if it is an Israel
force." At the same time it was
learned that the Arab Republic
has asked Britain for a supply
of ammunition for - British 18-
pounder guns which are still
in use in the Egyptian Army.
It was indicated here that the
request would be granted, "be-

Calls Israel 'Island
of Health' in Mid-East .

NEW YORK, (.JTA) — Life
expectancy in Israel today is.
71 years for men and 73 for
women, Dr. Moshe Prywes, asso-
ciate dean of the Hebrew Uni-
versity-Hadassah Medical School
of Jerusalem reported . at a din-
ner sponsored by the American
Physicians' Committee, medical
arm of the American Friends
of the Hebrew University.
For the Aab citizens of Israel,
life expectancy "is about twice
as long as that in the neighbor-
ing- countries," he added.
Dr. Prywes expressed regret
that Israel's achievements in
health and medical education
cannot be applied in the neigh-
boring Arab countries, "which-
reject all kinds of cooperation
—even in this field." -
He voiced satisfaction that
"new horizons have recently
opened with respect to other
new and emerging nations in
'Africa:and South Asia. Israel,"
he said, • "is doing best to
assist the efforts of these coun-
tries in the fields of health and
medical- education, as in other
spheres."-
Describing Israel as "an
island of health in the Middle
East,'! Dr. Prywes stated that
"during the last few years we
have succeeded in eradicating
or in bringing under control all
th-e infectious diseases which
are endemic in this region." ,
