Robert St. John Condemns Pro-Arab
State Department Policies, Demands
Nasser Meet Israel at Peace Parley

At the ZOD meeting at Rackham Auditorium (from left) are
Dr. John M. Dorsey, Mettie Baron Golub, Robert St. John and Carmi
M. Slomovitz.

*

Robert St. John, the venerable
author, in lectures that were enthu-
siastically acclaimed here, on Sept.
30, took occasion to condemn the
actions of the State Department
for appeasing Nasser.
Himself an admirer of Nasser,
having written a very objective bi-
ography of the Egyptian leader un-
der the title "The Boss," St. John
said in his lecture before the Zion-
ist Organization of Detroit, in the
Rackham Auditorium, that he ob-
jected to Nasser's anti-Israel posi-
tion and that he feels it the duty of
all Americans to protest our giving
any aid to Egypt until there is an
assurance that Nasser will discuss
peace with Israel.

Discussing his new book, "Roll
Jordan Roll," which Doubleday
will publish on Nov. 5, St. John
said, to the ZOD gathering, and in
the afternoon at the meeting of
Brandeis Women in Mercy Col-
lege, that Israel was willing to
accept a lesser share of the Jor-
dan waters under a plan pro-
ferred during the Eisenhower ad-
ministration, but that the former
Grand Mufti and the Arab
League stepped in to scuttle the
plan. He discussed in detail the
plan that was promulgated by
Eisenhower's special ambassa-
dor, Eric Johnson, and which
was accepted by Israel and three
Arab states, only to be vetoed by
the other 10 Arab nations, there-
by destroying a peace effort.

The Zionist Organization lecture
was co-sponsored by Dr. John M.
Dorsey,. University Prof e s s o r,
Wayne State University, and the
J. L. Hudson Co.
On the program at the evening
meeting were Carmi M. Slomovitz,
ZOD president, who presided, and
Mettie Baron Golub of the J. L.
Hudson Co. book department, who
introduced the speaker.
Mrs. Golub announced that while

the new St. John book "Roll Jordan
Roll" could not be secured in time
for the Detroit meetings, first edi-
tion sheets were to be autographed
by the author after the meeting for
insertion in what could be con-
sidered a special Detroit edition of
his book, and many took advantage
of the offer. St. John also auto-
graphed copies of his biography of
Ben-Gurion after the meeting.

Preceding the lecture, St. John

was honored at a dinner hosted

by Dr. and Mrs. Dorsey. That
gathering, attended by university
officials and many men and wo-
men active in community affairs,
was addressed in addition to Dr.
Dorsey and St. John, by Philip
Slomovitz, Mrs. Golub and Rich-
ard Strichartz, city comptroller,
who represented Mayor Cavan-
agh and presented St. John with
a City Medallion. Bishop Emrich
and Rabbi Morris Adler gave the
opening and closing prayers.

Referring to the afternoon Bran-
deis Women's meeting that was ar-
ranged by Jewish women, ad-
dressed by a Protestant and held in
a Catholic college, St. John said he
will henceforth speak of it as "the
Detroit spirit" which he commend-
ed highly as a noteworthy inter-
faith approach.
Stating that Israel is his second
favorite nation, St. John spoke of
the Jewish State as "the first legit-
imately created country in the
world" since its emergence was
"by peaceful means, by a major-
ity vote democratically taken in the
highest organization in the world,
the United Nations."
He reviewed Israel's early ex-
periences and made an impas-
sioned plea for peace. He was em-
phatic in his principal address and
in answers to questions from the
audience in his demand for action
against what he called "the Arab
bloc in the State Department."
"In dealing with Nasser," he de-
clared, "we should attach a condi-
tion to our aid to the United Arab
Republic of no more food supplies
unless Nasser agrees to a peace
conference with Israel."
