of invocation on the 100th anniversary of the first time a rabbi
had been invited to deliver a prayer in Congress—Feb. 1, 1860.
Dr. Goldstein also met with Pres. Eisenhower in the White
House in marking the anniversary.

In the latter category he re-
lates the story of Sir Andrew
Cohen, until recently the British
Governor of Uganda, who told
a reporter from an Israeli paper
that his family had settled in
England long, long ago and, in
fact, he was not a Zionist.
Schwartz reveals the follow-
ing conversation: .
"Are you Jewish in the reli-
gious sense?" the reporter asked
Sir Andrew Cohen went on to
say that he could hardly classify
himself as Jewish in the reli-
gious sense, either.
"So you are not a Zionist and
not Jewish in the religious
sense," said the reporter, "so
why are you visiting Israel?"
"Well," replied Sir Andrew,
"there &re things that are hard
to put in words. I am not a
Zionist and not Jewish in the
religious sense, and yet I must
admit that next to England, no
country interests me so much

LONDON, (JTA) — A bitter
split developed among the eight
foreign ministers from Arab
countries attending a meeting
of the Arab League Council in
Cairo, it was reported from the
Egyptian capital. The split re-
sulted from a demand that the
part of Palestine which was an-
nexed by Jordan should become
a part of a projected Palestine
Arab state to include also the
Old City of Jerusalem, the Gaza
area and parts of Israel.
The chief proponent of this
project is Premier Kassem of
Iraq who ordered every Iraqi
worker to contribute one hour's
pay to a fund for its establish-
ment. Opposing the project is
Jordan which holds that the part
of Palestine which she annexed,
as well as the Old City of Jeru-
salem, is now an integral part
Iraq is boycotting the Arab
League Council meeting in its
dispute with President Nasser
of the United Arab Republic.
However, the Iraqi proposal is
supported at the meeting by
other members of the Arab
League, which contend that Jor-
dan holds the annexed part of
Palestine only as a trustee, in a
parallel to UAR control of
the Gaza strip.
Proponents of the idea visual-
ize an independent Arab Repub-
lic with the seat of government
possibly in Gaza. Haj Amin, the
former Grand Mufti of Jeru-
salem who collaborated with
Nazi agents in their Middle East
planning, would be the first
As a counter to the proposal,
which includes formation of a
Palestine army from among the
Arab refugees, Jordan recently
offered Jordanian nationality to
any Arab refugee wanting it.
Nasser was reported to be
against any 'settlements with Is-
rael, as well as against the kind
of resettlement implied in Jor-
dan's citizenship offer.
One of the features of the recent Turover Aid Society's
50th jubilee banquet was the presentation of a certificate
attesting to completion of a second grove of 1,000 trees in
Israel by the society through the Jewish National Fund.
Prof. Samuel M. Levin, president of JNF, is shown presenting
the certificate to the officers. Left to right: Julius Honeyman,
