by purchasing Argentine gov-

tional Council of Jewish Wom-

In another session, a leading
Jewish educator asserted that
whatever American Jews do for
culture "we make sure it is at
least an ocean away." Dr. Judah
Shapiro, secretary of the board
of the National Foundation for
Jewish Culture, rejected the
argument that "there will be an
automatic transmission of Jew-
ish culture from Israel to the
United States."
He told the NCJW board that

Mrs. Leonard Weiner, NCJW
vice-president, announced that
the organization has set up a
$5,000 scholarship grant, to be
awarded annually for four years
for original research and writ-
ing on Jewish life. The initial
grant was awarded for the cur-
rent year to Dr. Erich Rosen-
thal, associateprofessor of an-
thropolog,y-sociology at Queens
College, for a study on the
American Jew in terms of
group cohesion.
Mrs. Hymes announced that
the organization was forming a
nationwide service corps for
senior citizens, modeled on the
Peace Corps. Under the plan,
retired people would volunteer
to help staff undermanned
health, welfare and educational
services in their communities
on a non-sectarian basis.

to Russia's Missile Build-Up in Cuba

Soviet missile build-up in Cuba
may not be entirely dissociated
from other world trouble spots
and developments, including the
introduction of missiles in the
Arab-Israel cold war, members
of Congress were told here this
weekend at a top-level briefing.
The American decision to
provide defensive, Hawk ground-
to-airmissiles to Israel was
cited as motivated as a response
to the Soviet supply of jet bomb-
ers and missiles to a number of
Arab states, including the United
Arab Republic. This was men-
tioned in a review of the world
scene related to the current
Soviet-American showdown in

squeezed in between Thant's
world crisis talks with U.S.
Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson
and Soviet Deputy Foreign Min-
ister Valerian Zorin gave rise
to broad speculation as to
whether the visit of the Israelis
had any direct connection with
the Russo - American impaSse
over Cuba.)

Officials said the Hawk de-
cision resulted from a conclu-
sion that an arms imbalance
had occurred in the Arab-
Israel situation because of
_ Soviet weapons provided to
the Arabs. Israel was at a
disadvantage, it was said, that
increased danger of Arab
aggression or a preventive
war by Israel, to restore a
balance and maintain regional
peace, the United States sold
the Hawks to Israel.

-State Department sources said
that, although the Foreign As-
sistance Act stipulates that no
U.S.. economic assistance be
given nations permitting their
ships to carry cargoes to Cuba,
this probably would not be ap-
plied to an Arab League state.

freighter "was the first to be
boarded in the U.S. naval block-
ade operation. The ship, S.S.
Marcula, carried a Soviet cargo.
After some foreign ship own-
ers ignored the American re-
quest, and foreign governments
failed to act, Congress added a
clause to the aid bill. It provided
that "no • economic assistance
shall be furnished to any country
which sells, furnishes or permits
ships under its registry to carry
items of economic assistance to
Cuba, as long as it is governed
by the Castro regime." The only
exemption from this clause is a
determination by the White
House that severance _ of aid
"would be contrary to the na-
tional interests."
