Addressing more than 2,000
'delegates and guests at the UJA
banquet Saturday night, former
President Harry S. Truman ex-
pressed admiration for "the pa-
tience and restraint" of Israel's
diplomatic corps who, he said,
"year in and year out have been
subjected at the United Nations
and other public forums to a
barrage of abuse on the part of
representatives of Israel's neigh-
Israel has more than lived
up to the hopes of all who
helped to usher her into
the family of nations," Tru-
man said. She had become
a fortress of democracy in a
part of the world where the
democratic tradition has not
yet taken root. She has fought
a valiant fight against the
ravages of nature. She has
extended a helping hand to
other underdeveloped coun-
tries. She has become a great
center of learning and cul-
ture. And above all, she has
joined you in the monumen-
tal effort in the absorption
of more than a million Jews
who in Israel have found new
life and new hope."
The UJA took the occasion
of Truman's participation in its
25th anniversary observance to
bestow an award on him, in
recognition of his "many great
acts of statesmanship and corn-

Pope Expresses Hope
That Council Will
Benefit All Religions

ROME, (JTA) — Pope John
XXIII expressed the hope that
the results of the first session
of the Ecumenical Council
which concluded here this week-
end would benefit both Catho-
lics and non-Catholics.
In a message summing up
the work performed so far by
the Council, the Pope declared:
"We are hopeful for the re-
sults that can be expected in
the future from the application
of the Council's decisions, re-
sults not only for the Catholic
Church, but also for our broth-
ers who name themselves after
Christ, and also for the multi-
tudes of men who are bearers
of most ancient, glorious and
pr e c i o u s civilizations which
have not to fear that the light
of Gospels might take anything
away from them."
(The American Jewish Com-
mittee declared in New York
that the first session of the
Ecumenical Council "has taken
significant steps advancing
friendship and cooperation
among all religious groups. A.
M. Sonnabend, AJC president,
expressed "profound gratifica-
tion for the leadership of Pope
John in taking measures which
would help to move the world
toward a new order of human
relations for all groups." He
also expressed the hope that
the Council will continue in the
future "to give practical ex-
pression to these objectives.")

emphasizing that the UJA has

tlement of 1,200,000 in Israel
alone. "However," he added,
"acute Jewish problems still
prevail in Europe and Israel,
which the United Jewish Ap-

with in the year ahead, and in
special and extraordinary ways."
