further stressed

. Neumann was also laud
Israel Premier David Bre
rion, who said in a cable
Jerusalem: "There is no

and appreciated. I esteem your;

that you will be blessed with -

tion of this work. The presenta-
tion of the Theodor Herz). Gold
Medal Award is seen by your
friends not only as a recogni-
tion of the past but as a land-
mark pointing to the future."
Neumann in responding to
the tributes, warned against
the perils facing the Middle
East as a result of the at-
tempts by Arab states in the
United Nations to impose an
unjust solution for the Arab
refugee problem. He empha-
sized that in the 14 years
since the adoption of the U.N.
resolution, "Israel has brilli-

achievements since its establish-
ment. Neumann also emphasized
that "above and beyond such
monumental achievements at
home, Israel is also serving as
pilot-plant for emerging nations
of Asia and Africa, in attacking
most difficult problems of recla-
mation and development, and
social reconstruction. Israel is
demonstrating how' these prob-
lems can be solved, not by the
brutal, coercive methods of a
police state, but by voluntary
cooperation with elaborate safe-
guards for the human rights of
the individual." -
Speaking on the Arab refugee
problem, Which is under dis-
cussion at the United Nations,
Neumann said: "What is being
offered to the United Nations
