NEW YORK — Mrs. Golda Meir,
Israel's Foreign Minister, said Mon-
day night that President Nasser of
the United Arab Republic, who posed
as a spokesman for peace in his first
address to the United Nations at the
General Assembly last week, has con- -
sistently refused to act for peace in
the Middle East.
Mrs. Meir spoke before 600 com-
munal civic and religious leaders at
a meeting in tribute to 10 founders
of the Israel Bond drive. She address-
ed the General Assembly Wednesday
afternoon. ,
She said that 'Nasser had urged
Peace for the entire world, adherence
to the UN Charter and a meeting be-
tween President Eisenhower and So-
viet Premier Khrushchev, but that he
was unwilling tc:o ,- meet with Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion. She said
there was no indication that Nasser
was interested in peace in the Middle
East, "no negotiations, no living up to
the UN Charter. He talks in terms
of boycott and threats of war."
Mrs. Meir described Nasser's bellig-
erent policy in the Middle East as a
"waste of money, blood and effort,
not for us alone but for the Arabs
as well."

UNITED NATIONS, (JTA) --- King Hussein of Jordan Monday delivered a series of sharp blasts
at the United Arab Republic, accusing its President, Gamal Abdel Nasser, of following the Communist
line in the Middle East. The Jordanian ruler also discussed the Palestine refugee question, accusing
Israel of failure to carry out UN resolutions. But his main fire was directed against the U.A.R. President.
Obviously disregarding heavy Arab pressures which, since his arrival here attempted to convince
him that, in the interests of Arab 'unity,' he should withhold criticism of the United Arab Republic,
Hussein told the General Assembly that he could not keep silent on the "local quarrel". between Nasser
and Jordan. That dispute endangers peace in the Middle East and threatens world peace as a whole,
he affirmed.
"From the very beginning," he stated, "the aim of our sister state has been our destruction." He
said the hostility of the U.A.R. against Jordan dates from the time he personally spoke out against
Jordanian alignment with the Comrhunist bloc or Communist ideology. .. -
Jordan, he said, has been subjected by the U.A.R. "to abuse, pressures of many kinds, incitements
by radio and other means, and subversion." He cited the fact that Jordanian Prime Minister Majali
and 11 other persons were killed recently by a bomb explosion, and tied those assassinations to U.A.R.
policies. He could only interpret these acts, he 'emphasized, as a U.A.R. effort aimed at the destruction
of Jordan.
Coming to "the Palestine Question," Hussein treated the subject with comparative mildness. "The
world," he said, "has closed and continues to close its eyes to the tragedy of humanity in the Middle
East, the tragedy of the Arab refugees."
"Nothing has been done by the United Nations to bring pressure upon Israel to live up- to UN
resolutions. Israel must live up to those resolutions. There can be no peace in the Middle East without
a just solution of the refugee problem," Hussein stated.
Nasser, who absented himself from the Assembly during Hussein's speech, left New York Tues-
day for Cairo, arriving there the following day. Thus, Nasser's projected tour through the United States
was called off.
The U.A.R., Hussein charged, is seeking to dominate the Arab part of the world and, if it suc-
ceeds, "either as a neutral or as an openly avowed Communist ally," will destroy the basic aims
of the Arab people. "Better ways," he told the Assembly, "must be found to bring the combined weight
of public opinion quickly and effectively to bear upon whatever nation transgresses upon agreed inter-
relationships." However, he made it clear he is not requesting immediate action from the United Na-
tions on the disagreement between Jordan and the U.A.R.
With regard to Israel, the Jordanian king said that "the original failure of the United Nations"
went back to the partition resolution of 1947 which, he claimed, "left in its wake a sorrowfully unre-
solved situation." He insisted it was "morally wrong and politically' unjust in - 1947 to partition Pales-

Evergreen Cong., Hebrew Schools
Agree on Joint Use of New Building

Dr. Servatius in Israel; to Confer with
Eichmann Through Transparent Booth

Direct JTA Teletype Wires to The Jewish News

TEL AVIV.—Dr. Robert Servatius, of Cologne, who will serve as defense counsel for
Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi extermination specialist, arrived here Monday night. He told
reporters at Lydda Airport that while he had "full confidence" in Israeli courts he would have
"preferred an international court to try my client."

The cooperative program that exists between the United
Hebrew Schools and local congregations has been extended to
another synagogue. Shown in this photograph are the repre-
sentatives of the United Hebrew Schools and the Evergreen
Jewish Congregation entering into an agreement for the use
. by the congregation's Sunday School of the new Borman Branch.
The United Hebrew Schools branch op e n e d this year on
Seven Mile Road and Bentler in the Evergreen area of North-
. west Detroit. The Borman branch, latest addition to the grow-
ing system of the neighborhood Hebrew schools of the United
Hebrew Schools, will house the Hebrew school during the
:week. On Sundays the Evergreen Jewish Congregation uses its
facilities for the Sunday school. Shown signing the contract
are. the following: Left to right: seated, Mrs. Harry Shiovitz,
president of the Evergreen Congregation Sisterhood, Franklin
Levy, president of the Congregation, Mandell L. Berman,
president of the United Hebrew Schools, Jack Shenkman, sec-
retary of the schools; standing, Rabbi Hyman Agress of the
Evergreen Congregation; Albert Elazar, superintendent of the
United Hebrew Schools, and Hy Kinzer, vice president of the
Evergreen Congregation.

He disclosed' here Wednesday that this would be one of the major points raised at the trial.
The West German attorney, who was engaged by Eichmann's brother, will remain in
Israel about two weeks in connection with his preparation of his defense for the Eichmann
trial which is tentatively scheduled to get underway next March.
Dr. Servatius said he had brought a letter from Eichmann's brother, but that he did
not know whether he would be permitted to give the letter to Eichmann. The attorney will
meet the Nazi in a specially-constructed transparent walled booth which will enable the
two men to speak privately but in full view of guards. •
Members of a special plainclothes police detachment, organized to protect the Cologne
attorney, filled the airport and escorted him to Tel Aviv where he spent the night. He went
to Jerusalem Tuesday to meet Attorney General Gideon Hausner and Justice Minister Pinhas
Rosen. Hausner gave Servatius formal permission to meet with Eichmann.
Such permission is required in view of the fact that the West German lawyer has not yet
been officially appointed as Eichmann's attorney. He will be appointed only after the charge sheet
is submitted some time in December.


The attorney,. remarking he could not comment on any legal aspects of the Eichmann
trial before he met Eichmann and obtained material for the defense preparations, observed,
however, that the Nuremberg trials' results would have some part in the Nazi's trial.
Dr. Servatius_ was accompanied by a high ranking police officer when he met reporters
at thg airport, j ib kw
in regard to the charges against Eichmann, that "all we know
now.4.repOrtsfiand-, atoraes.- The court will have to find out the facts and as a result of
these come to a judgment. All I am interested in is the truth."

He 'also said he would like the cooperation of an Israeli attorney, particularly to help
him in dealing with local legal procedures.

Police Inspector-General Yosef Nahmias, who announced arrangements for the special
sound-proof transparent booth to enable Eichmann to converse with Dr. Servatius, said that
the police department's special Bureau 06, in charge of the Eichmann case, expects to have
its investigation completed by Dec. 1.

Eichmann's wife, meanwhile, has requested permission from the Israel government to visit
her husband, it was disclosed Wednesday.
