Food and Agriculture Organiza-

By BENJAMIN LEVINSON

In my pride of being one of Detroit's Yeshiva Uni-
versity Ambassadors, I wish to join in the appeal to our
community to provide traditional support for the great
institution of learning which, while located in New York,
serves all of American Jewry.
The university began as a rabbinical college. Now
it is a university in every sense of the word. It has
several departments which have earned the acceptance
and respect of the entire country. It possesses one of the
best collegiate mathematical departments.
Yeshiva University has an outstanding scientific
faculty and excellent laboratories.
Its sponsorship of the Einstein College of Medicine
gives the university added status.
I am privileged to be associated with this university
and I urge our community's most generous support of it.

and will be financed by the
two British groups through ap-
peals conducted among British
Jews.
The project, which is aimed
at bringing the nutritional
standards for Moroccan Jewish
infants up to par with European
children, includes the training
of special personnel and the set-
ting up of infant feeding demon-
stration centers.

American League
for Israel Reaffirms
Non-Identification

NEW YORK, (JTA)—Zion-
ism in countries outside Israel
must support the totality of
Israeli life, and not align itself
with any internal, political par-
ties in Israel, Samuel M. Daroff,
president of the American Jew-
ish League for Israel, declared
in summarizing discussions held
at a meeting of the League's
board of directors here.
The League, he said, reaf-
firms "the unequivocal support
of the concept of non-identifi-
cation with the political parties
in Israel espoused by the World
Confederation of General Zion-
ists under the co-chairmanship
of Dr. Israel Goldstein and Mrs.
Rose L. Halprin, of which the
League is an affiliate."
"In support of this concept,"
he said, "the League strongly
feels that the existence in the
Diaspora of Zionist political
parties is a negative and stulti-
fying factor for the movement,
single Zionist organization,
since only through such a cen-
tralized force can the best in-
terest sof Israel and the Ameri-
can Jewish community be
served."

Israel Can Withstand
Arabs, Samuel Says

MONTREAL (JTA)—Viscount
Edwin Samuel told 400 dele-
gates attending the ninth con-
vention of the Canadian Labor
Zionist movement here that Is-
rael can withstand any forcible
attack by Arab nations, if world
Jewry will give full support to
the Jewish State. The situation
would be altered tragically, he
said, if Russia actively inter-
vened on the Arab side, or if
the enemy had nuclear weapons.
