sian Jews will at some future

pate in the working of society.
The direct talks in Moscow be-
tween the United States, Great
Britain and the Soviet Union, on
the banning of atomic tests in
the air under water, was cited
by Eshkol as best proof for the
need of direct Arab-Israel ne-
gotiations to achieve Arab-
Israel peace.
The Israeli Prime Minister
said the successful results of
the Moscow talks encourage
Israel to continue to ask for
direct negotiations with the
Arabs. Direct talks, he
stressed, bear the best results.
"I do not know of a better so-
lution to the Arab-Israel prob-
lem than direct negotiations,"
he declared. The Big Power
treaty initialed in Moscow last
week, he said, should be re-
garded as a gateway to more
understanding between oppos-
ing blocks, but it is still to be
seen if it has any bearing on
the situation in the Middle
Regarding Israel's relations
with the Soviet Union, Eshkol
said Israel had tried on a num-
ber of occasions to achieve an
improvement h e r e, but that
Israel found no listening ears.
Similarly, he said Israel had
also revealed its good will to-
ward Communist China, but "we
wanted and still expect a more
positive reaction."
With regard to the threat
voiced by Egypt's President
Nasser last week at the military
parade in Cairo, in which he
emphasized that he is preparing
"to free Palestine of Zionists,"
Eshkol said that Israel's reply
to this threat will be military
"The best reply to prepara-
tions is preparations," he stated.
"I am often blamed for speaking
too much of peace. Yet this does
not come instead of alertness
and prepardness. There will be
no easy going about this."
Regarding atomic research
in Israel, Eshkol said the at-
omic reactor in Dimona is
progressing according to plan,
though there are the normal
delays of engineering and con-
struction adjustments. He said
he does not contemplate any
visit or meeting with the heads
of states outside Israel in the
next few months, and that the
Foreign Minister, Mrs. Golda

Melt', would head Israel's dele-
gation to the United Nations
General Assembly, scheduled
to convene in September.
The Prime Minister said he
favors the introduction to Is-
rael of educational television
and, in due course, might con-
sider the establishment of a
general television network for
the country. As to proposals
to bring the remains of the late
Zionist Revisionist leader, Zeev
Jabotinsky, to Israel for re-
burial, Eshkol said he does not
consider dealing with this ques-
tion in the near future. Jabot-
insky had requested in his will ;
prior to his death in 1940, that
the Jewish State, which he fore-
saw, bring his remains to the
State for reburial.

Elect Tapper Mayor
of Winnipeg Beach

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (JTA)
— Lawrence E. Tapper, 60,
prominent Jewish resident of
Winnipeg Beach, north of this
city, was elected mayor of Win-
nipeg Beach.
Tapper had one opponent,
Patrick E. Irwin. He is the first
Jew ever elected to that office.
Tapper has been active in
Jewish and general community
affairs for many years. He is a
past president of Bnai Brith
Lodge 650, former international
deputy for AZA, Bnai Brith
youth organization, and a mem-
ber of Shaarey Zedek Congre-
gation. He is a member of an
early pioneering family in this
area, dating back to the 1870's.
The names of his parents, Elias
and Yetta Tapper, were listed
in Winnipeg's first city direc-
In an interview with the
Jewish Post here, Tapper de-
clared: "I attribute my election
not only to my election workers
in Winnipeg Beach and the city,
but .to the entire non-Jewish
element, by far the greatest
majority of electors, who are
very much ashamed and revolt-
ed by the recent defacing of
the synagogue and the swastika
contagion at the Beach."

According to the World Al-
manac, the probability of draw-
ing a perfect bridge hand — 13
spades—is 1 in 635,013,559,600
