Israel virtually challenged UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold
Monday to reveal the facts about "practical arrangements" he made with Nasser about the
passage through the Suez Canal of ships carrying cargoes to or from Israel.
Nasser denied in an American television interview Sunday that there were such arrange-
ments between him and Hammarskjold. He said he had made no such agreement with Ham-
marskjold and said reports that there was an agreement were Israel propaganda.
The spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry said here Monday that "if any comment is
needed on Nasser's denial, it should come from Hammarskjold."
The spokesman recalled that Golda Meir, Israel's Foreign Minister, said in the knesset
four months ago that the Greek freighter Asty palea, halted by Egyptian authorities at Port
Said, had been dispatched in accordance with terms agreed to by Nasser and Hammarskjold.
"That statement is and remains valid," the spokesman added.

NEW YORK—Embattled maritime workers who have been picketing the Egyptian ship
Cleopatra here for two weeks defiantly warned the United Arab Republic Wednesday that
they will continue their picketing until the "Nasser government changes its policy toward
ships dealing with Israel."
They told the second highest court in the land—the United States Circuit Court of Ap-
peals—that their action is 'directly calculated" to fight the Nasser government "where it

Celebrate by Supporting the Allied Jewish
Campaign, by Aiding United Jewish Appeal
A holiday spirit will reign not only in Israel but in JeWish communities
throughout the world, on the occasion of Israel's Twelfth Anniversary.
There will be a great deal of rejoicing,' and the progress attained by Israel
will continue to be a source of great satisfaction to Israel's kinsmen everywhere.
Meanwhile Israel continues to conduct an uphill battle for survival. It is
struggling against overwhelming odds. It must overcome serious obstacles.
That calls for continued action to assure Israel's continued economic secur-
ity. It demands our uninterrupted aid to those who seek haven in Israel. It means
that we must provide help to Israel in housing and educating the new immigrants
and in providing health - facilities for them.
On Israel's Anniversary, the major challenge to our community is to pro-
vide the funds that are needed by the United Jewish Appeal in the immigration re-
settlement activities. The UJA is the major .beneficiary of our Allied Jewish
Campaign, and it is imperative that we make a success of the campaign.
Although the concluding campaign meeting ha -S been set for next Monday,
there still are thousands of potential givers whose contributions have not yet been
accounted for. It is urgent that they should be reached, that their gifts should count
in the great effort to uphold the hands of the Israelis who are battling for dignity
A united community must join efforts to assure the success of the Allied
