t; ) State Dept. Against Strong Action on Arab Boycott

(Continued from Page 1)
the United States contribution
to UNRWA are to be used for
this vocational training program.
Nevertheless, progress toward a
final solution remains regret-
tably slow."
The Committee stressed that
the only favorable developments
during the past year were 1)
real progress in the rectification
of U.N.R.W.A. relief rolls and
2) the expanded program of
vocational training. "While the
Committee continues to support
the program, it is of the opinion
that more vigorous action is
needed to bring the refugee
problem to an acceptable and
early solution," the report said.
"The Committee believes that
the vast majority of the refugees
will eventually have to be re-
settled on land where there is
room and opportunity for them."
The House Foreign Affairs
Committee report displayed an
understanding of the Middle East
situation in sharp contrast to
the anti-Israel and pro-Arab
stand of chairman J. W. Fill-
bright of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee. The House
Committee is headed by Rep.
Thomas E. Morgan, Pennsylvania
Democrat. Chairman Morgan and
his committee, including both
Democratic and Republican
members, previously registered
a strong stand against U. S. aid
to Arab nations that practice
discriminatory boycott and block-
ade tactics and manifest religious
bias.

U.S. Opposes Strong

Government Pressure on
Nasser to Ease Boycott

NEW YORK, (JTA) — The
United States is against apply-
ing strong pressure by indi-
vidual governments upon the
United Arab Republic to ease
its boycott against Israeli ships
and ships trading with Israel, it
was revealed by the State De-
partment in a statement. to the
National Maritime Union made
public here by Joseph Curran,
president of the Union.
The statement was sent by the
State Department in reply to a
plea made by the National Mari-
time Union last month to Presi-
dent Kennedy urging him to
initiate action in the United Na-
tions to stop "continued United
Arab Republic violations of the
principle of freedom of the seas
with respect to Israeli ships and
other ships trading with Israel."
Curran said that he directed
the plea to the White House
with a warning that continuation
of the Arab restrictions • could
result in a boycott by members
of the 6,500.000 member Inter-
national Transnort Workers
Federation. In his request to
President Kennedy, Curran com-
plained specifically about denials
of free passage through the Suez
Canal to Israeli Shins or vessels
with cargo destined to or from
Israel. He also charged that
American merchant seamen were
subject to indignities and abuses
in Arab countries.
