U.S. Pledges $24,700,000 to UNRWA,
Warns the Agency Must Economize

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA)
—The United States pledged to
contribute $24,700,000 in cash and
foodstuffs in 1965, to aid the Arab
refugees being sheltered and fed
by the United Nations in four
regions of Israel's borders, but it
warned that the UN agency per-
forming this task must effect
economies, especially by "long-
needed rectification" of its relief
rolls. •
The American pledge and state-
ment were made here by U.S. Am-
bassador Francis T. P. Plimpton,
at the UN's annual pledging con-
ference, convened in the General
Assembly hall to raise funds for
financing the United Nations Re-
lief and Works Agency for Pales-
tine Refugees in the Near East.
Altogether, nearly $34,000,000
was pledged in cash, goods and
services toward UNRWA's 1965
budget, totaling more than $36,-
000,000. In announcing Washing-
ton's pledge, Plimpton also told
the UN that his government
plans to reduce its pledge by at
least $1,000,000 next year.
He said that, in any event,
America's share of the 1965
UNRWA payments would be no -
more than 70 per cent of the
amounts raised. He told the UN
that Washington felt its share of
UNRWA contributions, which are
made on a voluntary basis, has
been "unduly high." Since the
agency started operating in 1950,
the U.S. has consistently contrib-
uted '70 per cent of the total
budgets, giving this UN operation
a total of about a half billion
dollars.
UNRWA aids more than 1,200,-
000 Arabs on its rolls, most of
them sheltered in camps, in the
Gaza Strip, which is under Egyp-
tian administration, and in Jordan,
Syria and Lebanon.
The issue of "clarification" of
the relief rolls, swollen with the
names of many thousands of refu-
gees known to be dead, as well
as with many other ration-card
holders known to be ineligible for

the relief has been a tough one
here for years.
Laurence Michelm&e, the Ameri-
can head of UNRWA, had prom-
ised last fall to submit a special
report to this year's Assembly,
dealing with "rectification." How-
ever, due to the fact that this
year's Assembly had been pre-
vented from debating any issue,
this report has not yet been filed.
Among other pledges announced
were one of $5,400,000 by Britain,
$1,200,000 by Canada, $500,000 by
West Germany and nearly $300,000
by France. The 13 Arab members
of the United Nations pledged al-
together a total of about $500,000,
which, they said, they will give to
UNRWA in "goods and services."
