Meet in Paris

PARIS, (JTA)—The French
government announced that
Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion of Israel will meet
with President Charles de
Gaulle here on June 14. The
two statesmen will have
lunch together on that date.
Ben-Gurion will also meet
with Prime Minister Michel
Debre and Foreign Minister
Maurice Couve de Murville.
The Israel Premier will
remain in France until June
17. The remainder of the
program for his stay has not
yet been announced. Follow-
ing his visit to France, he
will go to The Netherlands
and to Belgium, which have
been, for years, most friend-
ly with Israel. Both at The
Hague and at Brussels, Is-
rael rates highly as the lead-

gap between the "have" and
"have-not" nations of the world
will widen unless major efforts
are made to increase interna-
tional aid, Avraham Harman
Israel Ambassador to the
United States, said Tuesday at
the University of Michigan.
Addressing the Michigan Con-
ference on International Devel-
opment, Ambassador Harman
said that "two-thirds of the
world's population now receives
only one-sixth of its goods and
services. Providing a better
standard of living is essential
to human dignity."
The Ambassador explained
that Israel has developed a
tax and wage structure de-
liberately designed to avoid
extremes of wealth and poverty
among its citizens.
"Economic hardships are
easier to take," he said, "when
there are no outstanding sym-
bols of over-wealth and con-
sumption." This also curbs the
demand for a higher standard
of living.
In general, Ambassador Har-
man said, Israel has emphasized
agriculture, increasing produc-
tion nearly four-fold over the
last 12 years. It provides raw

He explained that special tax
incentives are used to channel
more personal savings into in-
vestments, a fact he said also
encourages private enterprise.
This process of de-nationaliza-
tion helps increase the total
amount of capital investments
—public and private, he said.
Harman said that United
States and international aid

war period.
"International aid was born
of a desire to raise and share
human dignity with others. It
has been used effectively in
that spirit," Ambassador Har-
man concluded.

Idea of 'Justice'
Key to Conversio
of Sammy Davis


When Pete Martin commenc-
ed interviewing Sammy Davis
Jr. for an article in the current
Saturday Evening Post, he warn-
ed his subject that there were
going to be questions about why
he • adopted Judaism.
Sammy replied, "The word is
`converted.' I was converted be-
cause of one fact. Inside of
every man there is a need to try
to reach God in his own way.
"My dad is a Baptist, my
mother was a Catholic. I tried
Catholicism, but while it's the
answer for millions of people,
It was no answer for me.
"Nor did I change to Judaism
because any of my friends in-
fluenced me .. .
"The thing I found in Juda-
ism which appealed to me is
that it teaches justice for

tween the Jew and the Negro
