NEW YORK, (JTA) — Vice
President Lyndon B. Johnson,
in his first public address since
he was sworn into the second
highest office of the land, said
that the Kennedy Administra-
tion "will work for peace in the
Middle East as it works for
progress in Africa, for social
justice in Latin America; for
fredom in Asia, for strength
and accord in Europe, and for a
climate of mutual trust with the
Soviet Union."
He expressed hope for a re-
duction of the "costly burden of
arms" in the Middle East and
lauded Israel's peaceful devel-
opment achievements.
The Vice President spoke at
the 53rd annual dinner of Bnai
Zion, a fraternal Zionist order,
held at the Waldorf Astoria
Hotel. More than 1,500 guests,
each paying $75 a plate, at-
tended the dinner. The proceeds
will go to the planting of a
forest in Israel bearing the
name of Johnson in recognition
to his furtherance of American-
Israel friendship. Vice Presi-
dent Johnson was also pre-
sented with a citation.
Declaring that "modern Is-
rael is aware of the pursuits
of peace," Johnson said: "Is-
rael understands that devel-
opment depends upon basic
resources of human talent,
and its institutions are invig-
orated by eager students now
coming from many lands."

He praised Israel's "dedica-
tion, hard work, nourishment
of talent, and the extension
of knowledge" as qualities
that were "weapons of peace
around the world." He lauded
the role played by the Bnai
Zion and the Jewish National
Fund in Israel's success.

Israel Ambasador Avraham
Harman, addressing the dinner,
paid tribute to Vice President
Johnson and the United States
Government. "The Vice Presi-
dent's concern in the develop-
ment of material resources and
their dedication to human wel-
fare was known throughout the
world and it was appropriate
that his name would be perpe-
tuated in a growing forest in
the Holy Land," he stated. Re-
ferring to the Jewish Commu-
nity in the U. S. which he de-
scribed as "one of the most
encouraging and positive phe-
nomena in modern Jewish his-
tory," Ambassador Harman said:
"I would take this opportu-
nity of expressing the gratifica-
tion of the Government and
peaople of Israel at the fruitful
cooperation that there has been
between- Israel and the Jewish
communities of the United
States in the past 13 years.
There are and can be no poli-
tical relations between us. We
are citizens of Israel and you
are citizens of the United States.
We owe undivided loyalty to
our country as you are char-
acterized by undivided loyalty
to yours.
"Our respective g o v e r n-
ments have cooperated closely

and in international order and
cooperation. Between our citi-
zens, however, who are pre-
dominantly Jewish, and. the
Jews of the United States of
America the areas of cooper-
ation have thus not been poli-
tical. Nothing that is said on
this subject could possibly be
interpreted to mean that any.
one has a political involve.
ment in Israel except for citi-
zens of Israel.
"Our respective citizens have
cooperated primarly in bringing,
aid and dignity to Jewish refu-
gees. Of 1,300,000 Jewish refu-
gees who found permanent
homes in lands of freedom since
the end of World War II, 1,000,-
000 have been able to come to
Israel. This has been a great
achievement which is largely
due to the cooperation between
our two communities. There has
been an equally fruitful coop-
eration in cultural and spiritual
areas of mutual concern."
President Kennedy sent a
message to the dinner in which
he praised Bnai Zion and cited
as the "finest example" of its
work its "participation in the
afforestation of the Holy Land."
Speakers at the dinner also in-
cluded Congressmen Abraham
J. Multer and Emanuel Celler,
Mayor Robert F. Wagner, Dr.
Harris J. Levine, honorary pres-
ident of the United Jewish Na-
tional Fund of America, and
Hyman F. Fliegel, president of
Bnai Zion.

retary of State Dean Rusk told
a press conference that while the
United States was thinking about
the problem of reducing the arms
burdens borne by Middle Eastern
nations he did not believe he
could profit by stating what mea-
sures were under consideration.
Replying to a request for am-
plification of Vice President Lyn-
don Johnson's weekend New York
statement before the Bnai Zion
Order, Rusk said this was one of
the world problems where pre-
mature comment might not help.
