"Our main motivation," said
Morris, "is to build an _outer
ring of friendship with the
Afro-Asian nations • which will
lay siege to the inner ring of
hatred of the Arab states.
"Our 'second motive is nor-
mal trade. Our third goal is to
demonstrate that Democracy in
action is at least 400 per cent
more efficient than any form of
dictatorship."
Morris said the emphasis of
Israel's next 10 years of activity
pivots on the Negev Desert,
which comprises 60 per cent
of the nation's land surface.
He said the . Negev, which has
been an arid zone for 1,500
years, is being developed for
agriculture, mining (copper)
and chemical (potash and phos-
phates) industries and for a
route of trade between the
Afro-Asian states.

The Israeli Consul said his
country has pledged assistance,
in technology, agriculture, med-
icine, navigation and in many
other areas, to a number of
African and Asian countries.
The 13-year-old nation already
has entered into formal agree-
ments with Burma, Nigeria and
Ghana, to name but a few, to
which she sends scientists and
experts to share achievements
in technology.
Morris said Israel is teach-
ing the Burmese the idea of the
"farmer-fighter," taken from
ancient Judea and which Is-
rael herself adopted in her-
struggle for statehood, to de-
velop their land and protect
their frontiers from the Com-
munists.
During 1961-'62, the small
nation has given 1,000 scholar-
ships to train technicians from
Africa and Asia in Israel.

As for the export of know-
how, according to Morris, Is-
rael's slogan is "Go in, train

"These discoveries," he
said, "are not acceptable to
the Arabs because of their
narrow and delinquent ap-
proach' in the area. Once the
Arabs begin to consider the
development of their own
people and recognize the right
of their neighbors to the same
independent existence, the
language of the Arab will
change from delinquency and
hatred to a language of co-
operation and civilization."

linquency and hatred by the
Arab states is retarding their
development in the Middle East
while African and Asian coun-
tries are benefiting from Israel's
technology.
Yaakov Morris, Consul of
Israel in New York, issued the
charge here Sunday at the
annual conference of the Jew-
ish National Fund.
Keynote speaker for the all-
day session, attended by some
300 delegates at the Labor Zion-
ist Institute, was Nathaniel H.
Goldstick, Corporation Counsel
of the City of Detroit.
Morris, who delivered the
main address, cited Israel's in-
creasing role as an exporter of
know-how.

Examples, he said, are the
Hugo Boyko method of using
salt water for plant develop-
ment on sand dunes, the Alex-
ander Zarchin process of sep-
arating salt from sea water and
a solar energy generator applied
to agriculture.
"Each acre in Israel's Negev
Desert can produce three crops
per year with proper irriga-
tion and a greater yield per
crop with the intelligent use of
plant genetics," Morris stated.

political implications, he said.

"The Negev Desert," he
said, "is becoming a pilot
plant for desert research. It
is a great pity that the bene-
fits of this research are aid-
ing African and Asian coun-
tries before they reach the
Arab states."

Morris said the Negev,
which grew from a popula-
ttion of 5,000 people in the
year of Israel's statehood
(1948) to 200,000 today,• is
capable of absorbing 4,000,-
000 more people.

(Morris is author of "Mas-
ters of the Desert," to be re-
leased by George Putnam's Sons
of New York on Nov. 17.)
He paid tribute to the Jew-
ish National Fund (JNF), the
arm of Zionism which -is dedi-
cated to the afforestation and
reclamation of the land of
Israel.
Delegates to the conference
were told of JNF's new "20-
Year Plan," which calls for the
settlement of 600,000 more peo-
ple, the reclamation of two-
and-a-half million dunams of
waste land, from Safed in the
North to Eilat at the very tip
of Israel's mo s t southerly bor-
der, and the planting of 250,-
000,000 more trees. Total cost
of the project is estimated at
$250,000,000.

devoted to memorial tribute to
the late Daniel M. Temchin,
Morris L. Schaver and Morris
Lachover, among the devoted
JNF leaders in Detroit during
the 43 years of its existence
here.
Special presentations were
made to David Schoichit, Sam
Adler and the Abe Kasle family
for their efforts in behalf of
JNF.

TEL AVIV—The Israeli-Ameri-
can Oil Corp., which incorporates
the "Miarrii Group" of investors
in Israeli enterprises and which
has invested more than $3,500,-
000 in unsuccessful prospecting
for oil in Israel, announced
plans Tuesday to drop prospect-
ing and become a general de-
velopment corporation.
Yekutiel Federman, president,
said the revamped firm will have
the name of Israel-American In-
dustries and that it planned to
finance a new hotel and textile
factory in the Arad section, a
new development area. He said
the project would cost 3,000,000
pounds ($1,680,000). will in-
clude a housing project on Mount
Carmel.
Meanwhile, the Lapidot Oil
Prospecting Co. has announced
the -introduction of a new oil
hunting method, a geochernical
survey, which the company
claimed would drastically cut
prospecting costs. The company
said the new method would be
tried first in its coastal and
southern area oil concession.
