Comay Will Report
to Israel's Cabinet
on Arab Refugees

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The
Arab refugee problem and the
dominant Mapai Party's stand
on that issue following Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion's re-
cent discussion of the subject
with American President John
F. Kennedy was hotly discussed
in the Cabinet and exploded in
partisan attacks outside the
Cabinet.

The Isreal Defense Ministery,
in announcing the successful
firing of a 550-600-pound rocket
to a height of 52 miles, also dis-
closed that Israel had developed a
number of observation posts
which' photographed that troje

Minister, called in General C. C.

Nations Truce Supervision Or-
ganization, to discuss the situa-
tion on the Syrian border.
Sporadic shooting was still
continuing there, more than a
week after a series of attacks
by Syrian gunners in which an
Israeli Druse was killed.
After efforts by UN armistice
officials in Damascus failed to
end the firing, von Horn flew to
Damascus for talks with Syrian
military commanders, returning
to UNTSO headquarters in
JeruSalem.

Call for Reorganization
of American Zionists

BRETTON WOODS, N. H.,
(JTA)—Dr. Emanuel Neumann,
honorary president of the Zion-
ist Organization of America,
called for a reorganization and
consolidation of the Zionist
movement in the United States.
Addressing the annual con-
vention of the New England
Zionist region, Neumann urged
thoughtful and responsible
leaders of all groups to consider
the problem at once in a spirit
of Zionist comradeship and de-
dication to the overall vital in-
terest of the Zionist movement.

Within seconds after t
launch of Shavit (Meteor) II, t

rocket disappeared, trailing black
smoke. Special equipment
watched its progress until it
apparently disintegrated high
in space.
The Prime Minister was in-
formed that "the purpose of
the test was fully acheived."
He wanted to leave the shelter
immediately but was persuaded
to remain a few minutes when
fears were expressed that some
splinters from the disintegrat-
ing rocket might fall o

Minister David Ben-Gurion
asked the country to return his
Mapai Party to the next Knesset
(Parliament), in the elections
scheduled for Aug. 14, "with an
absolute majority."
He made that plea at a Mapai
rally here, as the election cam-
paign entered its third week,
with all 15 parties on the lists
stepping up their drive for
votes, hammering away at the
recent "Lavon Affair" which
had brought about the fall of
the government, calling for
election reforms, and stressing
Israel's security problems.
Moshe Sharett, former Prim
Minister and ex - Foreign Min
ister, speaking at Bat Yam, near
this city, urged election re-
forms so as to eliminate Israel's
many splinter parties. However,
at a rival meeting, conducted by
the new Liberal Party, Mapai
was chided for that attitude,
and was accused of encouraging
splinter groups.
