Arab Boycott Forces WSU Israeli
Students to Cancel Mid-East Night

By CHARLOTTE HYAMS

What was to be an "evening
of cultural exchange" at Wayne
State University was turned into
a political issue this week with
the Arab Student Association
refusing to participate because
Israeli students wanted to take
part.
Middle Eastern Night, spon-
sored by the International Stu-
dent Society at the University,
was cancelled Tuesday night
when students from Iran and
Afghanistan admitted the pro-
gram would fail without Arab`
support.
Avram Levy, chairman of the
evening, an Israeli, said he had
been willing to go through with
the event "with or without the
Arabs." But now that Iran and
Afghanistan have withdrawn,
leaving only Israel to partic-
ipate, such ,a Middle Eastern
Night would be impossible, he
said.
Samir Zakhem, Lebanese pres-
ident of the 60-member Arab
Student Association, said his
group does not recognize the
State of Drael, and therefore
will not perform in a program
featuring "political divisions in
the Middle East."

said that "if the Arabs' ob-
jection is to having an Israeli
chairman, I will resign in favor
of someone of their choosing."
But Zakhem insisted it was
Israel's participation, not the
chairman, that was unaccept-
able to the ASA. This is the
first year that the International
Student Society has presented
such an event featuring the en-
tire region of the Middle East
in a joint program, although
there were separate Arab and
Israeli events.
At a meeting of the ASA
Sunday night, the Arab students
agreed that a negative approach
to an Israel dominated program
would be "unwise." Several
members had suggested a coun-
ter Arab activity be set up the
same time as the Middle East-
ern Night. They were advised
that neither the International
Student Society nor the Uni-
versity would allow use of any
campus facilities for such a pro-
gram.
A planned Asian Night in
January will include both Isra-
eli and Arab participation, Levy
said, because "the Arabs feel
Asia is a geographical divi-
sion, not political." As for the
Israelis, "we don't care if the
abs join in or not," he said.

said, "return home more proud
and with the Jewish content of
their lives enriched. "But," he
added, "they must return with
their skins whole — don't skin
them during their trip." He em-
phasized that tourism also en-
couraged aliya. "Non-Jewish
tourists who depart from Israel,
praise the country, not from
politeness but from the heart.
This is one of the best ways to
break the walls of Arab hatred
surrounding Israel," the Prime
Minister declared.
Teddy Kollek, director-general
of the Prime Minister's Office,
told the Congress that Israel's
tourist industry needed 250 to
300 million Israeli pounds in in-
vestment during the next three
years, to expand air and sea trans-
port, hotel and other facilities.

Jewish Mayoralty
Candidate Supported
by Ottowa Papers

OTTAWA, (JTA) — The first
Jewish candidate to enter the
mayoralty race in this city's his-
tory has received the enthusi-
astic support of both of Ottawa's
newspapers against all three of
his opponents. Samuel Berger,
a member of the city's Board
of Control, is making his first
bid to head the City Council.
The Ottawa Citizen, the city's
most influential daily, has an-
nounced its support of Berger in
spite of the fact that his leading
opponent is Dr. Charlotte Whit-
ton, a columnist on the _paper.
The surprise move by the paper
had drawn a storm of protest
from supporters of Dr. Whitton,
who has now resigned from the
staff of the Citizen; The Ottawa
Journal, also announcing its sup-
port of Berger,. declared "Mr.
Berger has shown more leader-
ship in any crisis than any other
member of the Council."

Ribicoff's Career Recalled on HEW Appointment

WASHINGTON (JTA)—Abra-
ham Ribicoff, son of poor Jewish
immigrants who rose to become
the first Jewish Governor of
Connecticut, is new secretary of
Health, Education and Welfare.
He is the first Jewish member
of the Cabinet since Henry Mor-
genthau Jr. served under Frank-
lin D. Roosevelt.
Toward • the end of his first
campaign for Governor of Con-
necticut, which
few besides
himself thought
he had a chance
to win, he
spoke of him-
self as a sym-
bol of the
"Americ•an
dream." It was
a speech spok-
en in humility
and in faith
and it captured
the respect of
his listeners
throughout, the
state.
T h e dream,
Ribicoff
he told the voters; was
that "any boy, no matter what
his economic, social or religious
background might be, has the
right to aspire and to achieve
anything open to anyone in this
great country of ours."
