Senators Demand End of
`Immoral' Refugee System
JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion re-
ceived two members of the
United States Senate who are
on a fact-finding mission in the
Middle East and outlined to
them a constructive program for
a solution of the Arab refugee
problem.
The two senators, Albert
Gore of Tennessee and Gale W.
McGee of Wyoming, were told
by the Israel Prime Minister
that the solution to this prob-
lem must be based mainly on
resettlement of the refugees,
while Israel might agree to ac-
cept some of them under a
token repatriation - scheme. The
conversation with the senators
was termed later by Ben-
Gurion as "very satisfactory."
The senators, both of them
Democrats, arrived here from
Jordan where they studied the
Arab refugee problem on the
spot. They told Ben-Gurion that
they found that 150,000 United
Nations ration cards are being
misused in Jordan and that
many thousands of cards are
being issued to non-existent
refugees.

(Both senators were reported
from Washington as having sent
a protest to President Eisen-
hower, Secretary of State Chris-
tian A. Herter and the United
Nations urging that the Pales-
tine refugee aid program should
not be extended unless the ra-
tioning system is overhauled
first. They said the rationing
program is "immoral, dishonest
and unfair" and laid most of
the blame at the feet of the
Jordanian government.)
