Congress Group Cutting U.S. Aid
for Arab Refugees, Cites Progress Lag

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The
Foreign Affairs Committee of the
House of Representatives decided
to reduce this year by 5 per cent
the U.S. contribution to the
United Nations Relief and Works
Agency for Palestine Refugees,
and urged complete termination
of U.S. participation in that bud-
get as soon as feasible.
The cut was decided upon by
the committee in connection with
the administration's foreign aid
bill, which included $16,000,000
as the American contribution to
UNRWA's 1965--66 budget. The
committee reduced this figure by
$800,000.
In explaining its action, the
Foreign Affairs .Com.mittee re-

Fashion is a form of ugliness so THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

intolerable that we have to alter

it every six. months. —Oscar Wilde

man L eonard Farbstein, New
York Democrat, had earlier urged

Choose an

the U.S. government to promote
a program of gradual elimination
of the Arab refugee problem by
consecutive annual reductions in
the refugee rolls.
(In Cairo, the Arab League
charged that the United Nations
Relief and Works Agency was
"serving Zionist imperialist poli-
cies , by assisting the 1,000,000
Palestine refugees to emigrate to
the United States and Australia."
It said the agency had "caused
serious harm to the Palestine
issue" by reducing the number of
Palestine r e f u g e es in refugee
camps.)

"For a number of years, this
Committee has urged that
greater effort be exerted to re-
duce the (Arab refugee) rolls
and promote the absorption of
these people into the normal
economic life of the Near East
r e g i o n. Unfortunately, very
little progress has been made in
that direction. The number of
(food) ration recipients is higher
today than it was four years

ago,

"The committee is strongly of
the opinion that further gradual
reductions should be made in the
U.S. contribution to this activity
in the coming years, with a view
toward complete termination as
promptly as feasible of U.S. assist-
ance for this program."

Canadian Jewish Body
Adopts Stand on Racists

MONTREAL (JTA)—With more
than 800 delegates participating,
the Canadian Jewish Congress
ended its five-day plenary session
here by adopting a series of reso-
lutions dealing with racist mani-
festations in Canada, immigration,
support for Israel, and the situ-
ation of the Jews in the Soviet
Union. The plenary session, held
every three year s, re-elected
Michael Garber as president.
In its resolution dealing with
race hatred, the congress urged
the Canadian government to adopt
legislation which would incorpor-
ate "effective measures against
propagation of race hatred and
group libel." The CJC criticized
the Canadian Broadcasting Corp-
oration for "conducting inter-
views with Canadian and Ameri-
can neo-Nazis."
In a resolution on immigration,
the congress urged the govern-
ment to continue to give consider-
ation of representations "on be-
half of displaced and uprooted"
people by the CPC and the Jewish
Immigrant Aid Services.
Another resolution called on
Canadian Jewry to continue to aid
Israel "in every possible way."
