UN Chief Says Security Council
Resolution Covers Mid-East Crisis

(JTA) — The possibility of a-
renewed United Nations ap-
proach toward efforts to reduce
Middle East tensions developed
from a comment by UN Secre-
tary General Dag Hammarsk-
jold on the recent Security
Council resolution winding up
the latest cold war fracas
touched off by the U-2.

At a press conference, Ham-
marskjold accepted the propo-
sition that the resolution asking
all member governments to re-
frain from force or the threat
to use force in international
relations applies to the Middle
East "in a :very general way."
It was noted that the Arab-
Israel problem remains on the
Security. Council agenda -and
that Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel's
Foreign Minister, was sched-
uled to meet with the Secretary=
General during her current
visit to the United States. The
possibility was not excluded

tion might form the basis for

Redoubled UJA
Efforts Asked
in Cash Drive

The Organization of Lebanese
Christian Youth of Brazil . is-
sued a call to all Arabs in this
country to boycott the visit
here of Hussein Z. Sabri, dep-
uty foreign minister of the
United Arab Republic. Sabri ar-
rived here last Friday for a for-
mal "goodwill" mission. Accord-
ing to the organization of Leb-
anese youth here,- h _ e was one
of the UAR's "chief CoLplotters"
against Lebanon.
Only three of the leading
Brazilian newspapers mentioned
the Sabri visit. On the other
hand, the same newspapers, and
all others; featured prominent-
ly reports of a luncheon ten-
dered Friday by the Brazil-
Israel Chamber of Commerce,
honoring - Joseph Tekoah, Israel
Ambassador to Brazil.
One of the principal speakers
at the Tekoah luncheon was
Apolonio. Salles, former vice-
president of the Brazilian Sen-

25, was announced by Label. A.
Katz, president of Bnai Brith,
and Henry Edward Schultz, na-
tional chairman of the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith, at the League's national
executive committee meeting in
New York.
"This is the first time that
an American Jewish agency has
embarked on an exchange pro-
gram with West Germany," they
said. "Beyond that, the program
is unprecedented in its scope.
It involves an exchange of train-
ed Jewish community relations
leaders and Bnai Brith youth

workers concerned not only with
education itself but with all as-
pects of civic affairs, citizen-
ship, and democratic 'attitudes."
As guests of the West Ger-
man government, the first dele-
gation of 10 representatives of
the Anti - Defamation League
and Bnai Brith will participate
in seminars and meetings with
government and civic officials,
youth and community leaders
in Bonn, Dusseldorf, Berlin, and
other cities. German communal
and youth leaders will come to
the United States on an ex-
change visit at a later date.
