LONDON (JTA) — Prime
Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home
indicated in the House of Com-
mons that the Jordan River
water project may be on the
agenda of his forthcoming meet-
ing with President Johnson.
The issue was raised in Com-
mons by Arthur Henderson, a
Labor member of Parliament,
who cited the decision of the
Arab summit conference in
Cairo to block Israel's planned
use of the Jordan River waters
for its irrigation project.
Henderson stressed the joint
responsibility for the area of
Britain and the United States
under the 'Tripartite Declara-
tion of 1951 which guarantees
the existing Arab-Israel bor-
ders.
The British deputy then asked
whether the prime minister
would discuss with President
Johnson the plan proposed to
the Arabs and Israel by the late
Eric Johnston, U. S. special am-
bassador, as a possible basis of
settlement of the Jordan River
dispute.
The prime minister replied
that his talks with President
Johnson would cover many prob-
lems of common concern but
that they would be confidential.
Henderson also asked
whether the prime minister
would consult with President
Johnson with the idea of per-
suading the Arab states to
accept the Johnston plan, and
the prime minister replied he
would consider Henderson's
suggestions.
Sir Barnett Janner said that
the area of the water tap was
within the territory of Israel
and that it was not the concern
of any other country. He added
that the Jordan government
had proceeded on its phase of
the Johnston's plan without con-
sulting anyone and that the
"courageous' attempts by Israel
to arrest the desert was some-
thing which should be encour-
aged and not hampered by any-
one.

Herzl Press Publishes
Israel Theater Story

The publication of "The
Theater in Israel" by Sara Sha-
koes, first full length study in
English of the Israel theatre,
coincides with the third Ameri-
can tour of the Habimah The-
ater which opens a seven week
engagement in New York Feb. 3.
Published as a Seven Star
Book by Herzl Press, the book
traces the history of the theatre
in Israel since the first presen-
tation of an amateur group sev-
enty years ago, which prophet-
ically was a drama about the
return to Zion.
It includes chapters on the
Habimah, Cameri, Ohel and
Haifa Municipal theatres, as
well as smaller groups, and on
the history, background and
economics of the theatre in the
Jewish State.

New Zanzibar Regime
Recognized by Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel
formally recognized the new
revolutionary regime in Zanzi-
bar in a message sent by Mrs.
Golda Meir, Israel's foreign
minister, to Zanzibar President
Abeid Karume.
The message conveyed the
Israel government's "warmest
felicitations" on the proclama-
tion of the Zanzibar Republic
and expressed the hope that the
ties between the two countries
would "increase in strength."
The previous Zanzibar gov-
ernment was dominated by an
Arab majority and showed no
interest in ties with Israel.
Israel was not invited to
the Independence Proclama-
tion celebrations though Mrs.
Meir was in Nairobi at the time.

Israel Cabinet Gets
Slum Clearance Plan
to Benefit Families

JERUSALEM (JTA)—A slum
clearance p 1 a n that would
benefit more than 70.000 fami-
lies in Israel's major cities, was
presented to the cabinet by
Housing Minister Joseph Al-
mogi.
The plan, which the cabinet
decided to pass on for recom-
mendations to the ministerial
committee for economic affairs,
was initiated in 1958 and in its
present form envisages clear-
ance and construction projects
to be carried out by private
enterprises.
Under the plan, each fam-
ily relocated would be given
the choice of either renting
or purchasing an apartment.
At the meeting, the cabinet
also empowered Finance Mini-
ster Pinhas Sapir to finalize
negotiations with the Soviet
government over the purchase
by Israel of Russian holdings
including the 15-acre Russian
compound on which the Su-
preme Court and other Israeli
government offices are located.
The transaction does not in-
clude property belonging to the
Russian Church.
Negotiations began in 1960
when the Soviet authorities
submitted a list of properties
which they claimed as heirs to
the Czarist regime. This claim
had never been recognized by
the British Mandatory Govern-
ment of Palestine.

Soviet Jewish Doctor
Marks 70th Birthday;
Public Function Held

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON—The '70th birthday
of the famous Soviet Jewish
physician and teacher of medi-
cine, Prof. Boris Broderson, was
celebrated in Leningrad.
A public function was held in
his honor and a number of ar-
ticles on his achievements pub-
lished in both the general and
medical press.
Dr. Broderson, one of the
Soviet Unions greatest physi-
cians, is the brother of Moishe
Broderson, the Yiddish drama-
tist who died in Warsaw several
years ago. Apart from medicine
he is an expert on Yiddish
literature and on Jewish history.
He writes and speaks Yiddish
and is often seen rummaging
among old Hebrew documents
at the library of his university.

Tough U.S. Line
on Aggression
Hailed in Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli
quarters welcomed the state-
ment by U.S. Deputy Undersec-
retary of State Alexis Johnson,
who told a pro-Arab conference
that the United States would
not "stand idly by" if aggression
were committed against any
Middle Eastern nation.
The statement before the
Citizens Committee on Ameri-
can Policy in the Middle East
was believed here to be par-
ticularly significant in view
of the recent Arab threats
against Israel's water irriga-
tion project.
It is also the first U.S. policy
statement on the Middle East
since President Lyndon B. John-
son assumed office.
One point in the speech which
stressed U.S. impartiality in the
Arab - Israel dispute, aroused
some puzzlement here.
That was the assertion by Mr.
Johnson that the United States
might soon be forced to take
steps to the liking of neither
Israel nor the Arabs. It is as-
sumed that Israel would seek
clarification of this point.

Johannesburg Honors
Ex-Jewish Mayor for
Service to the City

JOHANNESBURG (JTA) —
The service which former Johan-
nesburg Jewish Mayor Jack
Mincer had rendered this city
was lauded by Mayor J. F. Ober-
holzer, here when, in the pres-
ence of an audience of civic
dignitaries, he opened the new
"Jack Mincer Parking Garage."
Mincer, said the mayor, had
initiated the traffic develop-
ment scheme, which included
Johannesburg's new highways
and flyovers, and of which the
new municipal parking garages
were part. Mincer and his wife
were mayor and mayoress of
Johannesburg in 1949-1950.
Mincer said the traffic plan
he had battled to put through
the council in those years was
proving its value now, and he
felt the time had come for
Johannesburg to go in for un-
derground tube transport, like
London and Paris.
He announced that in appre-
ciation of the kindness which
Johannesburg had always shown
him and his wife, the Mincer
family would donate a fountain
to the city as center of the
small park to be built above the
underground parking garage.

Visit of Pope Brings
Elevation for Vicar

ROME, (JTA)—The Rt. Rev.
Msgr. Gori, Latin Patriarch and
Vicar for Israel, has been elevat-
ed to the rank of bishop, it was
announced by the Vatican. The
elevation of Father Gori was
said by Vatican circles to be
due to the satisfaction of Pope
Paul VI with the vicar's con-
tribution to the success of the
Pontiff's recent visit to Israel.
Lay circles, here, however, said
the elevation may also be con-
sidered as a special mark of at-
tention to Israel from Pope
Paul.
