4. Israel would be asked not
to set a maximum number of re-
turning Arabs it would admit.
However, Israel would retain
the right to reject individuals
as security risks subject to UN
over-all surveillance and review.
Refugees would be expected to
uphold the laws of Israel. An
impartial body to hear disputed
cases would be established.
5. A special UN fund consist-

ing of voluntary contributions
from 'governments and the
world public would be set up
to help the refugees become
integrated. Israel would be ex-
pected to make a substantial
contribution to the fund.
6. Israel, with help from the
UN and friends, would be re-
quired to pay indemnities to
Arabs who lost property in
Israel.

titled to a UN fund indemnity

gone by them, something like
a veterans bonus.

Nasser Saber-Rattling Stirs
B-G Retaliati©n Threat

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Prime
Minister David Ben - Gurion
warned the Arab world that if
war is forced on Israel by mis-
calculating Arab leaders, "every
one of us is ready to hit back
and we will do everything so
that the war will be waged on
the attackers' territory within
a few days."
Replying to threats from
President Nasser of Egypt of
the range of his new rockets,
the Prime Minister used a
phrase from a popular Ameri-
can song, "everything you can
do, I can do better," in saying
that what Nasser could do with
missiles, "we can do with more
skill, ability and knowledge."
He made his strong state-
ment in an address at Sed-
jera, one of the first Jewish
settlements in the lower Gal-
ilee where the Prime Minister
himself worked 55 years ago
as a young immigrant to the
pre-state Jewish community in
Palestine.
He asserted that Israel's army
was stronger than those of the
neighboring Arab countries but
that it was doubtful whether
"there is one Arab leader who
appreciates this and who is
therefore not planning to attack
Israel." For this reason, he said,
Israel "must maintain a strong
deterring army."
The Prime Minister came to
the settlement from a world
meeting of Jewish War Veter-
ans. In his address to the vet-
erans he stressed the need of
unity between all Jews when he
called the main factor in pre-
serving Jewish life and Jewish-
ness throughout the world.
At a special Cabinet meet-
ing, the Prime Minister re-
ported on his recent month-
long tour of Scandinavian
countries. The Cabinet ap-
proved the appointment of
Joseph Almogi as Minister for
Housing and Development to
succeed the late Dr. Giora
Josephthal. The new Housing
Minister, who had been Min-
, ister without Portfolio, is a

ROME, (JTA) — Pope John
XXIII voiced very high praise
for the religious values of the
Old Testament this week, in an
address at the Vatican to the
Italian Biblical Association.
"Man awaits and listens to
the Word of God," said the
Pontiff, "with the same devo-
tion with which the Jewish
people received the reading of
the Holy Book, given to them
by Ezra after the fortunate re-
turn of the people from cap-
tivity in Babylon. Beloved
sons, you will find therein
everything that refers to the
teaching and to the worship of
the Divine Book."
