Israel's Minister of Education
and Culture Abba Eban once
again took Detroit by storm
Monday night, with an eloquent
address in which he gave one
of his brilliant evaluations of
world conditions, especially as
they relate to Israel, and of
Israel's education and defense
needs.
Addressing some 800 people
at the Israel Bond dinner, in
Cobo Hall, Eban inspired sub-
scriptions for Israel Bonds
totalling $217,350.
In the audience to hear his
eloquent address were state and
city officials, presidents of uni-
versities, Federal and County
judges, labor. leaders and men
and women in all walks of life,
-many non-Jews gracing the
double-decked dais.

try for the changed attitude in
providing anti-aircraft missiles
for Israel's defense. "This," he
said, "is an important develop-
ment in Israel - U.S. relations.
Never have Israel's security and
freedom stood higher in the
consideration of your nation's
leaders."
He told of a meeting he had
in Washington last week with
leading members of the White
House staff during a visit in
Washington, and called the
session highly successful.
• (While in Washington, Eban
met President Kennedy's politi-
cal advisers George McBundy,
Walt Rostow, and Arthur
Schlesinger; _ scientific adviser
Jerome B. Wiesner and cultural
adviser August Hecksher. He
was also the guest of honor at
a dinner tendered by Israel
Ambassador Avraham Harman,
attended by Chief Justice Earl
Warren of the U. S. Supreme
Court; Justice Arthur Goldberg;
the Ambassadors of France and
Sweden; the Secretary of
Health, Education and Welfare,
Anthony Celebrezze; Myer Feld-
man, Deputy Counsel to Presi-
dent Kennedy; Ambassador Eric
Johnston, Assistant Secretaries
of State Harlan Cleveland,
Philips Talbot, and others.)

The list of Bond purchasers
was headed by a subscription
of $25,000 by Max M. Fisher,
president of the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation, who pre-
sided. There was a $15,000
purchase by Mrs. Morris
Schaver and several $10,000
purchases.

Pointing out that Israel is no
longer the youngest among the
nations-51 new nations have
been admitted to • the United
Nations since Israel became, in
1949, the 59th UN member
nation—Eban spoke about "the
unforgettable years during
which we saw visions together
and dreamt great dreams," and
expressed his conviction that
even in the present "prosaic
normality" the "coming years,
too, can be heroic."
He analyzed the position of
the small nations, declared that
"they do not have a negligible
role," that "they can play a
conciliatory role in the con-
flicts of our time," and empha-
sized Israel's activities in con-
cert with the Afro-Asian na-
tions. He said that 1,600 from
the latter countries are now
studying in Israel and that
1,400 Israeli experts are en-
gaged in assisting new nations
in Africa and Asia in their
scientific developments.

"The tendency of the small
nations is to regard Israel
as their laboratory, as their
pilot plant," Eban said. "Our
little nation has an important
role to play in giving reality
to the lives of small nations."

to the U. S. took occasion to

for the stabilizing of conditions
created by the influx of Jews
into Israel from everywhere.
Recalling the inauguration of
the Israel Bond Drives in 1951,
Eban appealed for uninterrupt-
ed support of the Israel invest-
ment projects, stating that "we
have now come to solve once
and for all the survival of a
people. You have planted a tree.
May it flourish and grow and
may its branches reach unto
Heaven."

Samuel Rothberg, national
Israel Bond campaign chair-
man and a national UJA lead-
er, in a brief appeal, recalled
that he was here with Ben-
Gurion to inaugurate the
Israel Bond drive in 1951. He
said that the redemption of
the first Israel Bond issue
next April and the repayment
by Israel, next Feb. 1, of the
$100,000,000 loan from the
Export Bank, will mark his-
toric dates.

Rotheberg conducted the ap-
peal for Bond sales, receiving
many hearty responses.
Fisher, in his introductory
remarks, emphasized that Israel
Bonds and the UJA "comple
ment each other," and that the
Jewish W e l f a r e Federation
recognizes the importance of
investments as supplementary

"The real competition lies
in the laboratories and the
libraries of our universities,"
Eban said. "Our economy de-
pends on systematized knowl-
edge."

He described the school sys-
tem in Israel, the conflict be-
tween "two nations" in the land
—those who have been in-
fluenced, by European culture
and the other half that comes
from downcast and backward
Islamic countries—and appealed
for continuing help to provide

While emphasizing Israel's
gains in friendships on four
continents, Eban neverthe-
less warned of the dangers
that • face his country, of the
"Nasserist expansion" moves.
He declared that "tension still
is the normality of Israel's
life," that while "Israel out-
ward life is tranquil, there
still are eddies underneath."

"There are still expansionist
forces at work in our region,"
he declared. "Events in Yemen
cause concern in Israel chiefly
because of the factor of ex-
ternal interference. It becomes
plain that Nasserism is not yet
content with a legitimate Egyp-
tian destiny. Its ambition
reaches out to other sovereign
countries in a purposeful bid
for hegenomy and domination.
If these influences were to
triumph in places closer to Is-
rael, our region would be a
focus of grave crisis once
again."
Emphasizing that Israel is "a
beleaguered country," surround-
ed by enemies 50 times its size,
Eban indicated that in 20 years,
when Israel's population is ex-
pected to number four million,
the number of Arabs will in-
crease froin 90,000 to 200,000,
and Israel's problems, he im-
plied, will grow.
Eban also pointed out that
the Arabs have begun to adopt
new methods of inculcating
cultural, scientific and technical
skills among their people; that
Israel's current cultural superi-
ority is not guaranteed; that
there are ominous signs on the
horizon.

to philanthropy in tasks to aid
Israel.
Rabbi Jacob E. Segal intro-
duced Eban. The invocation and
benediction were given by
Rabbis Milton Arm and Irwin
Groner. Tom Borman, Detroit
Bond chairman, welcomed the
gathering and Irwin Cohn pre
sented Eban with a folio con-
taining the names of the Bond
purchasers at the Monday night
dinner. Mrs. Joseph Katchke
spoke in behalf of the Israel
Bond Women's Division.
Michigan's Secretary of State
James M. Hare brought greet-
ings from Governor John B.
Swainson, and Fisher announced
that he was delegated by
Governor-Elect George Romney
to greet the gathering. Richard
Strichartz, representing Mayor
Cavanagh, brought a warm mes-
sage of greeting from him. The
Mayor's letter stressed "the
moral and economic ties of
friendship that link our two
nations." .
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gros-
berg were hosts• at a reception
in Eban's honor preceding the
dinner.

Dr. Slawson Charges
Fascism Is Avoided
in School Instruction

Dr. John Slawson, executive
vice president of the American
Jewish Committee, said that
widespread "gaps" and "distor-
tions" exist in courses on totali-
tarianism in American high
high schools, and that the subject
of fakism is, in most instances,
"avoided" or "treated solely as
an 'evil force' with very little
effort made to explain its sources,
methods and purposes."
He pointed out that in America
today there is a "semantic blurr-
ing of political ideologies which
helps to confuse current issues."
For example, "there is great con-
fusion as to the stand of the
`true conservative' the 'pseudo-
conservative', the 'true liberal'
and the `pseudo-liberal'."
The term "Marxism", he said,
is used "to designate the Social
Democrats of Western Europe
with whom we get along ami-
cably as well as the Chinese
Communists who believe war
with the U.S. is inevitable." Even
the word "democracy" has lost
the precise meaning it once had,
Dr. Slawson stated.
