UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.,
(JTA)—The United States Gov-
ernment called on. the United
Nations to adopt a declaration
on the elimination of all forms
of religious discrimination, but
indicated that such an interna-
tional instrument may not come
up for General Assembly con-
sideration before 1964.
The U.S.A., at the same time,
implied endorsement of a sub-
commission study made public
a year ago establishing the right
of any person to leave his own
country or return thereto. Both
points were interpreted by ob-
servers here as aimed at least
in part againSt the Soviet
Union's denial of religious rights
and the rights of emigration to
Jews in. the USSR. However, the
Soviet government was not men-
tioned by name.
The statements were made in
a lengthy address on general
human rights and social welfare
aspects of the work of the Eco-
nomic and Social Council by
Mrs. Jane Warner Dick, U.S.
representative on the UN So-
cial Commission. She spoke in
the General Assembly's Social,
Humanitarian a n d Cultural
Committee. That Committee has
on its agenda this year an item
calling for a UN declaration on
the elimination of religious dis-
criminatiOn, but has not yet
reached that point for specific
debate.
Mrs. Dick noted that the Sub-
commission on the Prevention
of Discrimination and the Pro-
tection of Minorities is expected
to give priority to the drafting
of a declaration on religious in-
tolerance at its next session
here in January. "The draft
prepared by the Subcommission
should, therefore, come to us
next fall. The United States
welcomes this arrangement, and
favors placing the draft decla-
ration on religious intolerance
high on the 1964 agenda of this
Committee," she said.
Mrs. Dick referred to the
study in respect to emigration
and immigration issued by the
same subcommittee last winter.
"This study," she said, "clearly
indicates the folly of imprison-
ing populations and confining
intellects behind political bound-
aries." When that study was
issued last winter, it was fought
vigorously here by Soviet repre-
sentatives who saw the docu-
ment as a criticism of the
USSR's policy of denying emi-
gration Tights to Russian Jewry.

Europe's JNF Pledges
Extra $1 Million for
`Operation' in Israel

BRUSSELS, (JTA) — The
European conference of the
Jewish National Fund here
pledged to raise $1,000,000 in
addition to its regular JNF con-
tributions for "Operation Gali-
lee," the new development pro-
gram for the central Galilee in
Israel, which will cost the JNF
an aggregate $11,000,000.
The pledge was made at the
conclusion of the two-day con-
ference. Of the total of the extra
$1,000,000, Great Britain and
Ireland will furnish $500,000;
France, $100,000; $50,000 each
by the JNF in West Germany,
Italy, Switzerland and Belgium;
and the remainder by JNF sec-
tions in other European coun-
tries.
The delegates to the confer-
ence were 'guests at a dinner
tendered for them at Antwerp
by P. N. Fersnenberg, president
of the JNF in Belgium. Earlier,
they were officially received at
the Antwerp Town Hall by the
Mayor.

Jordan River irrigation projects
were "a serious threat" to the
Arabs and must be countered,
"if need be," by action of the
combined Arab armies, Syria
and Iraq announced a joint mili-
tary command earlier this month.
Observers here said that the
latest Syrian-Iraqi statement on
the irrigation projects marked
the start of a period of heighten-
ing tension between the Arab
countries and Israel over--use of
Jordan River water. Israeli of-
ficials said recently that the
proposed water diversion for a
vast Negev irrigation project was
a matter of life or death for
Israel. It was estimated here
that Israel has spent nearly $84,-
000,000 on the irrigation project.
Unconfirmed reports also were
received here that Iraqi forces,
including air units, were moving
into position beside Syrian
troops on the Syrian-I sr a e 1
frontier.

The cigarette machine in the

Center has been removed and
a continuing exhibit on the
health hazards of smoking has

This is the second Center af-

smoking for its 2,300 teenage
members because smoking is
considered "a harmful habit for
young people."

Exhibits Documents on
Contribution of Jews

COLOGNE, West Germany,
(JTA)—More than 2,200 docu-
ments, posters, manuscripts and
photographs, many of them in-
dicating German participants in
the Nazi regime's actions against
Jews, went on display at Col-
ogne's Town Museum, under
the auspices of 'Dr. Kurt Hack-
enburg, head of this city's board
of education. The purpose, he
said, is to show the German
people the destructive results
of anti-Semitism.
The emphasis of the exhibit,
Dr. Hackenburg said, is to show
the contributions made by Jews
in the Rhineland toward Chris-
tian-Jewish and German-Jewish
understanding.
