Eban to Address Dinner Meeting of Two
Allied Jewish Campaign Divisions March 10

The mechanical trades and
real estate divisions of the Al-
lied Jewish Campaign will hon-
or Abba S. Eban, Israel's. Depu-
ty Prime Minister, former Min-
ister of Education and Culture
and the former Ambassador of
Israel to the United States and
chief Israel Delegate to the
United Nations, at a dinner,
Tuesday, March 10, at the Stat-
ler-Hilton Hotel. announced Di-
vision Chairmen Eugene J. Ep-
stein and Aubrey Ettenheimer.
Ambassador Eban played an
important role in his country's
foreign affairs since the estab-
lishment of Israel in May, 1948.
At that time he became head of
Israel's mission to the United
Nations. When Israel gained
membership in the UN on May
11, 1949, at the age of 35, he
became Israel's Ambassador to
the United States, the youngest
official to hold a position of
such rank and importance in
Eban was born in South Afri-
ca and was educated at Cam-
bridge University where he spe-
cialized in, and later taught, He-
brew. Arabic and Persian liter-
ature. His connection with poli-
tical work in Israel began 14
years ago when he went to Jeru-
salem as liaison officer of Al-
lied Headquarters to the Jewish

population. His task was to se-
cure the participation of Jewish
volunteers on special and dan-
gerous missions for the Allied
Forces in the Near East and in
Europe. He remained in Israel
after the war, entering the serv-
ice of the Jewish Agency in 1946
and was a member of the dele-
gation which secured the vote
of the UN General Assembly in
favor of the establishment of
In 1958, he returned to Israel
to become President of Israel's
famed center of scientific re-
search—the Weizmann Institute.
He also was elected of the Knes-
set — Israel's Parliament — as a
member of the Mapai Party, and
later became Minister of Edu-
cation and Culture in the Ben-
Gurion government. In 1963,
when Levi Eshkol became Prime
Minister, Eban was named Depu-
ty Prime Minister.
In January, 1964, Eban was
elected by the United Nations
Economic and Social Council to
membership on the UN Advisory
Committee on Science and Tech-
Eban has written numerous
works on Near Eastern Affairs.
He its the author of "The Middle
East in World Politics" and
"Voice of Israel," a collection
of his most important addresses.

Eban's Babyhood Role in Zionism

I was reading in an Israeli
paper an interesting bit of remi-
niscence about the Balfour Dec-
laration. When Britain issued
that paper, promising a Jewish
Homeland, naturally the Zion-
ist leaders were very happy and
anxious that the whole world
should immediately know all
about it. So a hurried call was
sent to the home of the secre-
tary of Dr. Chaim Weizmann.
She was a good linguist and she
was to translate the document
into French and Russian.
But the secretary was also
mother of a year-old child.
"How can I leave my child?"
she asked. "I have no baby
The Zionist leaders were in-
sistent, however, so the secre-
tary bundled up the little child,
fenced it safely in the cradle
and left for the office. She com-
forted herself that the document
she was to translate was not
lengthy, so she would not be
gone long.
The one-year-old child has
since grown up. Almost every-
body has heard of Abba Eban.
He's the boy who almost inter-


posed himself in the path
of the Balfour Declaration,
which created the baby of the
Jewish State.
They used to have more
babies or at least it seems so.
Shalom Asch, the writer, had
12 or 15 brothers and sisters.
(I don't remember the exact
number.) He had so many; that
he recalled that with all the
strangers that used to come to
his parents' house, when every-
body sat down, he didn't know
who were his brothers and
sisters and who were the
strangers. Today, we are a bit
more cautious. We have been
alarmed about a population ex-
plosion. There is fear there
would be enough corn flakes to
go around for the world's in-
creasing population.
Our ancestors seemed to be-
lieve there was nothing better
than a baby except two babies.
Think of the long trip the angels
took from the sky just to tell
Abraham and his wife that they
were going to have a baby.
But there were no cigars to
give out then.
There is a Talmudical story
about a man who was left a
