Sharett, chairman of the 'Jewish
Agency executive, reported at a
press conference that a complex
of socio-economic problems grip-
ping the Latin American conti-
nent was the main cause under-
mining the position of the Jew-
ish communities in that area.
He made his report on his re-
turn to Israel from an extensive
tour of the area and a visit to
the United States.
He said that the economic
structure which is under grow-
ing pressure was creating a sit-
uation affecting the population
stratum of which the Jews of
Latin America were a part and
to which they were most vulner-
able. He asserted that anti-
Semitic manifestations were an
"accompanying factor" which
added to the gravity of the Jew-
ish situation but that it was not
the main problem.
While he did not assume that
there would be a mass migra-
tion from Latin American coun-
tries to Israel in the near fu-
ture, he added, he did believe
that there would be increased
immigration from those coun-
tries to an extent not previously
experienced. He said this pros-
pect would pose to both the
communities and to Israel a
new Zionist test.
He emphasized that there was

a need to intensify Jewish edu-
cational activities in the Latin
American communities along
with preparing new groups of
emissaries and instructors to be
sent there from Israel.
In response to questions
about Zionist developments
in the United States develop-
ing from charges in the
American Zionist Council, he
said he believed the Zionist
Council was at the crossroads
in which "one way leads to
decline and complete disinte-
gration, and the other can
open a new phase of fruitful
He said that if the American
Zionist Council was to continue
to exist, "it must stand on its
own feet without depending on
outside help."
He suggested also that the
Council should concentrate on
hammering out and following
through on a common policy
for all Zionist groups and par-
ties, serving as a central source
of initiative and direction.

Soviet's Mid-East
Atom Bomb Idea Not

LONDON, (JTA) — Lord
Privy Seal Edward Heath said
the British government had no
objection in principle to the
formation of nuclear-free zones
in certain areas, such as the
Soviet Union proposed last week
for the Middle East in a letter
to the Israel government.
Heath added that Britain was
not opposed to such zones, if
they were set up voluntarily by
the states concerned and if the
existing military balance was
not disturbed by such arrange-
ments. He said that, in the Med-
iterranean area, niether of these
conditions would be met. He
made the statement in reply to
a question from Laborite Ar-
thur Henderson about the gov-
ernment's position regarding the
Russian proposal.
(The 'U.S. State Department
had responded to the proposal
the day it was made, by calling
it a propaganda gesture aimed
at ousting planned Polaris sub-

stitute had arranged a special
series of lectures for the Turk-
ish group.

First Lady Of Hadassah

Henrietta Szold lived an amazingly varied
life, but she is best known as the founder
of Hadassah. Yet a contemplation of her
life and work reveals her as one of those
rare spirits whose abnegation and dedica-
tion to others offers hope to the human race.
Born on December 21, 1860, in Balti-
more, Maryland, Henrietta began her
career as a teacher. She devoted herself to
social work and the Americanization of
Jewish immigrants to this country. That
would seem to be career enough for one
lifetime, but, in 1893, Miss Szold became
editorial secretary of the Jewish Publica-
tion Society. She worked as a translator
and editor for the next twenty-five years.
When she was almost 50 years old, Miss
Szold's-life changed dramatically. During
her first visit to Palestine she wasappalled
by the disease and squalor she saw. She

decided to do something about it. Her
idea was to install a district nursing sys-
tem in Palestine. That idea was the
beginning of Hadassah, which first founded
the American Zionist medical unit.
OLD Fit:rens
Once again, when Hitler came to power,
Henrietta Szold ..saw a human need. It
was apparent that the rescue of Jewish
children from the Nazis was most urgent.
Though she was now 75, Miss Szold be-
came the director of the Youth Aliyah
movement. Through her efforts as head of
the Aliyah thousands of JeWish children
were saved and brought to Palestine. In
1945, Miss Szold's life and work ended.
Social worker, Zionist, editor, founder
of Hadassah and rescuer of Jewish children
from the Nazi gas chambers, Henrietta.
Szold lived a full and useful life. The world First with the Finest Cigarettes
is better for her passage through it.
