Arab-Israel Clashes
Mark Refugee Debate

(JTA) — Hassan Gohar, repre-
sentative of the United Arab
Republic, told the General
Assembly Special Political Com-
mittee that time had only
strengthened the determination
of the Arab refugees to uphold
their right to repatriation—
which he offered as the "only
solution" to the problem.
Charging that Israel from the
beginning had "resisted" any
attempt at repatriation, Gohar
accused Israel of inviting "alien
Jews to create a de facto situa-
tion" which might render
repatriation impossible. Jewish
immigration, he argued, con-

stituted the "main obstacle" to
repatriation, and should, there-
fore, be the concern of the
United Nations.
Michael S. Comay, deputy
chairman of the Israeli dele-
gation, was forced by Le-
banon and Saudi Arabia to
engage in another toe-to-toe
battle as the Assembly's Spe-
cial Political Committee con-
tinued consideration of the
Arab refugee problem. Comay
had to take the floor three
times during the two-hour
session, to reply to anti-Israel
mis-statements made by Na-
dim Dimechkie . of Lebanon
and by Ahmad Ehukairy of
Saudi Arabia.
Shukairy persistently referred
to Comay only as "the gentle-
man from Israel." Whereupon
Comay reminded the committee
that, while he was willing to
accept the title of "gentleman"

Poland, Israel Inaugurate
Regular Shipping Service

Polish Ocean Lines will start
regular shipping service next
month between Poland and
Israel. This will be the first
regular shipping arrangement
between Israel and any Com-
munist bloc company.
The routes will connect Po-
lish ports with ports in Israel,
continuing to Bulgaria and
Romania. Several years ago Ro-
mania had shipping arrange-
ments with Israel but these
were halted.

is also the delegate of Israel.
At that point, after another
sentence or two from Shukairy,
Charles T. 0. King of Liberia,
chairman of the committee,
adjourned the session.
Thus far, not a single non-
Arab speaker has addressed the
committee — Comay's interven-
tions having been exercised
only to correct Arab mis-state-
ments. So far, there is not even
a draft resolution in existence
nor has any effort been made
to bring the debate to a culmi-
nating point.

Mrs. Dyckman Re-Elected
by U.S. Mizrachi Women

Mrs. Moses Dyckman, of New
York, was re-elected national
president of the Mizrachi Wo-
men's Organization of America,
at its 34th annual convention in
Atlantic City.
Col. Nachman Karni, member
of the Israel Mission to the
United Nations, told convention
delegates that Israel always
stands ready to negotiate for
peace with the Arabs.
The convention reaffirmed
the primacy of the United Jew-
ish Appeal and adopted a bud-
get of $1,270,000 for the organ-
ization's program of activities.
