Seymout Halpern (N.Y.,Rep.)
Tuesday rejected a joint ap-
peal addressed to him by Sec-
retaries of State and Defense
Dean Rusk and Robert S. Mc-
Namara that he forego any "re-
strictive amendment" to the
Foreign Aid Bill which might
interfere with assistance to the
Arab States.
The secretaries wrote to Hal-
pern, co-sponsor of the Keat-
ing-Halpern amendment, that
"a number of restrictive amend-
ments have been proposed to
cut off drastically aid to some
countries or organizations
whose actions disturb us."
The two Secretaries said they
believed • s u c h amendments
stemmed from "an inadequate
appraisal of the long-term ob-
jectives of U.S. foreign and
military policy. Attempts to
place the conduct of our for-
eign policy under rigid legisla-

Levi Eshkol Assumes
B-G's Correspondence
with U.S. President

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
To The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — Premier Levi
Eshkol was disclosed Tuesday
to have replied to letters from
President Kennedy in a corres-
pondence which started when
David Ben Gurion was Prime
The content of the exchanges
has been the subject of intensive
consultations at top levels of
the Israel Government.
Officials have been maintain-
ing the strictest secrecy about
the content of the exchanges but
it was generally known that the
correspondence dealt with such
vital aspects of Israel policies as
the situation of the Arab refu-
gees and diplomatic and long-
range security problems.
A copy of Eshkol's reply was
submitted Monday to United
States Ambassador Walworth
Barbaur. After Eshkol succeeded
Ben Gurion as Premier, Presi-
dent Kennedy sent a letter to
Eshkol in which he indicated,
in a recapitulation of his prior
correspondence with Ben Gurion,
that he assumed a reply would
be delayed because of the
changes in the Premiership.
The exchanges were considered
in recent talks here in which the
Israeli envoys to the United
States, France and the United
Nations were summoned to Jeru-
salem. The general nature, of
the talks was conveyed to leaders
of the opposition liberal parties.

Live restrictions will prevent us
from acting in support of
American interests in a rapidly
changing international scene.
We strongly urge your support
of this bill without further re-
striction or reduction.
Halpern replied to Rusk and
McNamara that it was incon-
ceivable to him that America's
objectives "could countenance
continued aid to a nation like
the United Arab Republic,
which is pursuing policies negat-
ing and undermining our pro-
fessed long-term objectives." He
referred to "the aggressive role
of the UAR against neighbor-
ing states, her acquisition of
Soviet weapons systems and
training of Egyptian military
personnel in the Soviet bloc,
her proliferation of the rocket
race, and other actions contrary
to the cause of peace and the
broad goals of United States
foreign policies, as I under-
stand them."
Halpern stated that "my leg-
islative responsibilities are such
that I cannot refrain from sup-
port of such amendments that
sincerely reflect my own think-
ing and the views of a large
section of the American public."
He stressed that the taxpayer
"pays the bill for these For-

eign Aid programs and I, as a
member of Congress, can do no
less than take note of the solid
thinking that arises among our
Assuring the Secretaries of
his support of the "broad goals"
of the foreign assistance pro-
gram, Halpern added: "I am
sure that you will understand
my inability to comply with
your request that I refrain from
backing amendments that I be-

lieve to be vital to the national
security and true interests of
the United States."
It was apparent that the Sec-
retaries referred not only to
amendments of the Keating-Hal-
pern type, which deprive re-
cipients of aid if they . divert
their own resources to aggres-
sive Soviet military build-ups
against other beneficiaries, but
also to anti-bias amendments
and similar measures.

can government leaders told a
gala function tendered by the
Jewish community of El Jadidaop
Tuesday that independent Mor-
occo Moslems and Jews were re-
garded as one without difference.
The officials were Dr. Khatib,
Minister of State for Health and
African Affairs, and Fatmi Ben-
slimane, former president of the
Moroccan State Council. Both
officials devoted most of their
addresses to the "fraternity"
they said existed between Jews
and Moslems in Morocco.
