Israel Accords Hattussah Rare honor; Jewish Agency Executive Asks:
Medical Organization Will Aid Africans `Does Zionism Strive for Unity?'

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — Hadassah —
the women's Zionist organiza-
tion of America -- was the
recipient of a rare citation from
the Israel government here
Tuesday as the women Zionists
inaugurated a celebration mark-
ing Hadassah's golden jubilee.
On behalf of the government,
Col. Yosef Nevo, Military Corn-
mander of Jerusalem, awarded
Hadasah the "Standard of the
War of Independence," an
honor never before given to
any institution but only to
border settlements whose in-
habitants had fought in battles
and displayed exceptional
heroism.
A special scroll accompany-
ing the award to Hadassah was
signed by Prime Minister David
Ben-Gurion in his capacity as
Defense Minister.

and nurses from Tanganyika
and Ethiopia will be accepted
for special training within the
framework of the Hadassah
Medical Organization in Israel.
This, he noted, will be in addi-
tion to "on-the-spot training"
medical personnel will be re-
ceiving in their respective coun-
tries from Hadassah teams as-
signed to special missions there.
Mann also disclosed that Dr.
Michael Davies of Hadassah's
Department of Preventive Medi-
cine and Hygiene was named co-
ordinator of medical services in
Liberia.

Hadassah, according to the
citation, was given the award
for its role in the War of
Liberation, citing its contribu-
tions to the defense of Jeru-
salem, when Hadassah repre-
sentatives "displayed unusual
heroism and bravery under
fife."

Meanwhile it was reported
from New York that the two-
day Hadassah mid-winter con-
ference, attended by 200 leaders
of the organization, concluded
its sessions Monday with an an-
nouncement that the Hadassah
Medical Organization in Israel
will send special medical teams
to African countries to help
fight disease and meet problems
of public health there.
The announcement was made
by Dr. Kalman J. Mann, direc-
tor-general of the medical or-
ganization. He said that as a
result of the survey of eye
diseases in Tanganyika, Kenya
and Ethiopia carried out last
month by Prof. I. C. Michelson,
of the Hadassah Medical Organi-
zation, two special teams of
opthalmologists are now being
readied for special missions to
Tanganyika ropia.

"SATISFACTION GUARANTEED"

Mann reported that 17 stu-
dents from nine Afro-Asian
countries have begun medical
studies at the Hebrew Univer-
sity-Hadassah Medical School.
The 17 men and one woman—
ranging in age from 18 to 24
years — come from Rhodesia,
Liberia, Sierre Leone, Ethio-
pia, Kenya, Basutoland, Tan-
ganyika, Nigeria and Nepal.

The Hadassah also went on
record as supporting President
Kennedy's request for legisla-
tion authorizing the acquisition
by the United States of $100,-
000,000 of United Nations bonds
in order to help the UN "meet
the mounting deficit and pre-
vent a financial crisis."
Shimshon Arad, Consul of Is-
rael at New York and a member
of the Israel delegation to the
United Nations, in other busi-
ness told the "Hadassah leaders
that at the last General As-
sembly session the Arab delega-
tions had hoped to inflict severe
blows on Israel.
"However," he said, "they
were decisively defeated in that
adventure. On the other hand,
the forgotten UN basic doctrine
of direct negotiations — though
not mustering this time the re-
quired majority — has emerged
anew as the only constructive
path to peace and progress in
the Middle East."


2,000 at Glamorous Event Markin
Local Hadassah's 50th Annive

The 2,000 people who attend-
ed the 50th anniversary ball of
Detroit Chapter of Hadassah,
Wednesday night, at the Shera-
ton Cadillac Hotel, witnessed
some of the evidences of the
great work of healing spon-
sored by the women's Zionist
movement in Israel.
Displays of Hadassah's work
were exhibited in the ballrooms
that were taken over for this
glamorous event, and the large
attendance attested to the great
popularity of the movement
that has revolutioned health
projects in the entire Middle
East.

JERUSALEM—A discussion of
the future of Zionism in the
United States was opened here

of the Jewish Agency Executive.
The importance of the discus-
sion was emphasized at a news
conference held by Dr. Nahum
Goldmann, president of the
World Zionist Organization, w
stressed the topic by declar
that United States Zionis is
the backbone of the World on-
ist movement.
The American Zionist oun-
cil, said Dr. Goldman must
become "the power-house of the
movement, - declaring tha was a
task which "various organ Lions,
however effective, annot
achieve."

Dr. Goldmann lauded t
