decided to open its annual debate
of the Arab refugee problem on
Friday. It listed Ambassador
Michael S. Comay, Israel's perma-
nent representative here, as its
first speaker. This will be the first
time in 10 years that Mrs. Golda
Meier, Israel's Foreign Minister,
will not participate in that debate.
Having spent nearly three weeks
she left for home Monday
ght, due to the urgency of other
problems she must handle in Je-
rusalem.
One of those problems is the
issue of the El Fatah sabotage
gangs which had been infiltrating
into Israel almost nightly, fOr
weeks, blowing up water pumps
and causing other heavy damage.
Comay discussed that situation
with Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, UN
undersecretary for Special Politi-
cal Affairs, continuing a discus-
sion of that issue he held last
week with Secretary-General U
Thant and Dr. Bunche.
Ambassador Comay reiterated
his government's grave view of the
El Fatah depredations and its in-
sistence that Jordan must be held
responsible for sheltering the El
Fatah saboteurs. The Israeli Am-
bassador acknowledged the fact
that, last week, King Hussein of
Jordan disassociated the Amman
government from the El Fatah ac-
tivities, but noted that Israel will
judge Hussein's statement by Jor-
dan's actions regarding El Fatah.
Michelmore's Report stated
that he believes that, today,
more than 15 years since
UNRWA was established, "the
refugee problem has not grown
any less complex or less dan-
gerous to the peace and stability
of the region."
His report showed that:
1) The number of Arab refugees
on the UNRWA rolls, registered
for one or another form of relief,
had grown in the last year by
34,238 or 2.7 percent, reaching an
all-time high of 1,280,823 persons;
2) Since its establishment in
January of 1950, UNRWA had
spent a total of $534,397,505, of
which the United States alone had
contributed $364,468,069;

of extending aid to the "third
generation" of refugees — the
children of the Arab children of
those who claimed refugee status
in 1948, after the Arab exodus
from Israel when the Jewish state
fought its war of liberation;
4) Virtually no progress has
been made in the efforts, under
way for many years, to rid the
UNRWA relief rolls of claimants
deemed ineligible because the orig-
inal claimant had died or other
fraud;
5) The emotions of the refugees,
who believed that their "nation
has been obliterated" and their
"population arbitrarily deprived of
its birthright," has, if anything,
"increased with the additional fo-
cus for their feelings provided
by the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization which came into being
in June 1964."
This was the first time UNRWA
has officially taken note of the
existence of the PLO which Israel
had denounced here a number of
times as an organization formed
for the express purpose of using
refugees for warfare against Is-
rael. .
The report, issued annually
by UNRWA, and encompassing
statistics up to June 30, 1965,
also requested a budget for 1966
totaling $38,611,000. That figure
compares with a budget for
1965 estimated at $37,833,000
and actual 1964 expenditures of
$37,193,000.
Michelmore recommended that
the Assembly extend UNRWA's
mandate "for a reasonably long
period, such as five years." The
agency's current mandate is due
to expire June 30, 1966.
Comay held a conference with
Michelmore to discuss the
UNRWA report. The contents of
their talk was not revealed. But
Comay was believed to have taken
up three points in the Michelmore
report. These concerned the intro-
duction, which reported blandly
the political, anti-Israeli attitude
of the refugees; Michelmore's men-
tion in the report that he intends
to implement new definitions of
what a "refugee" is for UNRWA
purposes, thus opening the door to
the granting of relief to categories
not recognized now as entitled
to relief; and his efforts for the
rectification of the UNRWA re-
lief rolls.

JERUSALEM—The Arab coun-
tries have shown no desire to find
a solution to the Arab refugee
problem, with the result that the
countries supporting the United
Nations activities for aid to those
refugees "are getting pretty tired
of it all," Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel's
foreign minister, declared here
Wednesday.
Mrs. Meir made her statement
upon returning home after a three-
week absence during which she
attended the current session of
the UN General Assembly in New
York and conferred with most of
the leading foreign ministers of

NEW YORK — The National
CRAY Commission (the Youth
Commission of the North American
Labor Zionist Movement) has an-
nounced it will raise $100,000 for
"Habonim Leadership Development
Fellowships" through which Amer-
ican Jewish young adults, drawn
from Habonim ranks, will be
prepared for youth leadership
through in-service training and
study.
The followships — funds for
which will be raised by the Labor
Zionist Movement, the Habonim
Alumni Association, local CHAY
Commissions and friends of
Habonim — will be given to deserv-
ing youths. The young people will
be trained during college and upon
graduation will serve for several
years as full-time advisers of
Habonim.

French Foreign Minister -Maurice
Couve de Murville. During her
three-week absence from Israel she
also conferred in London and
Paris with top statesmen of the
British and French governments.
Israel's foreign minister said
she found general understanding
among leading diplomats and for-
eign policy chiefs of Israel's posi-
tion on many issues, including
Israel's concern regarding the re-
cent spate of raids into Israel
by saboteurs belonging to El
Fatah, many of whom operate
from bases in Jordan. But on the
Arab refugee question she said
there is a general feeling among
UN delegations that "an impossible
situation" is developing.

An increase of 27,000 phone calls
a day has been noted in the U. S.
in comparison to the same day a
year before.

BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — Patr-
icio Errecalde Pueriedon, secretary
of the National Revolutionary
Tacuara movement which he pub-
licly identified last June as a
parliamentary anti - Zionist group,
was arrested on charges of sub-
version.
The leader of the right-wing
movement also said in June that
it had arms and training and was
in close sympathy with the Arab
states against Zionism. He also
said "we have no problems with
Jews as long as they are not Zion-
ist." Other leaders of the move-
ment were arrested shortly after he
made his public statement on the
aims of his movement.
