WASHINGTON — The State Department Tuesday
made - known that while it disapproves the Arab block-
ade and boycott affecting Israel, a decision has been
made — on advice of U.S. diplomats in Arab states —
for "the avoidance of coercive tactics to achieve Arab
compliance with international law." This was revealed
by John S. Hoghland 2d, acting Assistant Secretary of
State for Congressional Relations, in a letter to Sen.
Kenneth B. Keating, New York Republican.
Commenting on a Mutual Security amendment
adopted last year by the Senate, calling for the linkage
of U.S. aid with respect by recipients for freedom of
navigation and termination of blockades and boycotts
like that enforced by the Arab states against Israel and
American shipping trade with Israel, Hoghland indi-
cated the State Department had decided not to enforce
that amendment. The amendment was not a law but
expressed the "sense of the Senate" in calling on the
executive department to take action.
Hoghland said that, based on views from our field
posts, the Department has so far concluded that efforts
to link the Mutual Security Act directly to the Suez
transit question would only intensify the very trade and
transit restrictions which "we all hope may be elimi-

Gen. Dayan to Address Opening Dinner
of '61 Allied Jewish Campaign Wednesday

General Moshe Dayan, Minister of Agriculture of the. State of Israel and
former Chief of Staff of Israel's Army, will be the featured speaker at the
opening dinner of the 1961 Allied Jewish Campaign, 7 p.m. next Wednesday, at the
Statler Hotel, announces Paul Zuckerman, campaign chairman. The campaign is the
annual fund raising effort- of the Jewish Welfare Federation.
Zuckerman said it is particularly appropriate that Israel's - Minister of
Agriculture deliver the address that opens the campaign.
Zuckerman said the United Jewish Appeal, the major American agency
aiding immigrants to Israel and refugees and distressed _Jews overseas, last
year received 57 per cent of the funds raised in the Allied Jewish Campaign.

As a Jewish volunteer with the British in World War II, Dayan and his
fellow-Jewish scouts mapped the rapid advance of the British forces into
Syria. It was in this attack against the Vichy French and the Nazis that he
suffered the loss of his left eye.
In the Israel War of Liberation, Dayan was a commander on several
fronts, including JerUsalem. He led the first armored column, comprised of
only half-tracks and armored cars, which took the town of Lydda and broke
the Arab defense of the neighboring town of Ramie. He was one of the leaders
of the action that cleared the invading Egptian troops out of the Negev.
Because of his knowledge of the Arab countries and their language, he was
selected as a member of the Israel delegation that concluded the Armistice
