Arabs Protest Israel's Presence at Parley
on Trade; President Accused of Partiality

GENEVA, (JTA) — Fighting
bitterly against the seating of
Israel as a member of the 62-
nation Afro-Asian bloc attend-
ing the United National Con-
ference on Trade and Develop-
ment here, Arab delegations
walked out of the Afro-Asian
caucus Monday in protest against
Israel's participation.
The Afro-Asian bloc, a strong
group of members at United
Nations headquarters in New
York. voted to recognize Israel's
right to full and equal partitci-
pation in the caucuses of the
members representing the Asian
and African states.
Soon after, Israel officially
protested against the overt anti-
Israel discrimination shown by
the Egyptian president of the
122-nation UN conference.
The protest was made in a
letter to Dr. Raoul Prebisch,
secretary general of the con-
ference. The Israeli delega-
tion charged that President
Abdel Moneim el Kassouny's
failure to invited the Israeli
delegation head to a dinner,
for which were tendered in-
vitations to the heads of all
other delegations in his of-
ficial capacity, showed "not
only disregard for the most
elementary rules of courtesy,
but also a lack of imparti-
"The office of president of
such an important international
gathering calls for the highest
standards of integrity and ob-
jectivity," the Israeli inserted
in the letter. "Their absence
bodes ill, not only for the con-
duct by Dr. el Kassouny of the
business of the conference, but
for its ultimate success as a
The Israeli delegation also
charged the UN-appointed sec-
retariat with partial responsi-
bility for the discriminatory
action, asserting that "arrange-
ments for that dinner were
made by the protocol service
of the conference."
When the Afro-Asian cau-
cus opened Monday, the
group, with Israel represented
by Moshe Bartur, Israel's
permanent representative at
the UN's Geneva head-
quarters, decided to take a
public stand against coopera-
tion with South Africa and
Portugal, due to the racist
policies of those governments.
As soon as that topic had been
completed, R. J. Lall of India,
chairman of the caucus, an-
nounced: "Now that our main
work is done, I propose that
we disperse for the duration of
the conference and resume our
consultations, should these be
needed, on the same basis as at
the United Nations in New
The meaning of his linking
the basis of the bloc to the sit-
uation existing in New York—

where the Afro-Asians have con-
sistently kept Israel out of their
group—was clear to all present.
A number of African mem-
bers, led by Nigeria, immediate-
ly voiced sharp protests against
t h e chairman's formulation.
Whereupon all the Arab dele-
gates walked out. Three Moslem
delegations — from Indonesia,
Pakistan a n d Muritania — re-
maining in their seats, although
these members always support
the Arab anti-Israeli views as
the United Nations.
While the Arabs thus mount-
ed an offensive designed to
remove Israel from the Afro-
Asian bloc—which Israel has
achieved here for the first
time in its history—Israel's
Minister of commerce and in-

dustry, Pinhas Sapir, lauch-
ed a counterstroke.
Sapir, who arrived here to act
as chairman of Israel's delega-
tion to the 123-nation confer-
ence, met with a number of top
cabinet members from various
African and Asian states, in-
viting many of them to visit

I am a homemaker. Managing the family budget is my responsi-

bility. While paying the bills, how can I most effectively build
our family savings?

When the paycheck comes home, make it a habit to first set
aside a definite amount. Then place those dollars in a high-
earning account at American Savings and Loan Association.
That's where they'll earn 4% per year with insured safety.
