Johnson, Goldberg Head Notables Who Acclaim 33rd Brotherhood Week

Arthur J. Goldberg, U.S. repre-
sentative to the United Nations,
said he welcomed "the opportunity
to participate in the 33rd observ-
ance of National Brotherhood Week
and in the work of the National
Conference of Christians and Jews.
Brotherhood Week, begun in
`- z— '034 by the National Conference,
Akes place this year from Feb.
.0-27. President Johnson, as all
7 _ residents since Franklin D. Roose-
velt, is honorary chairman.
"This nation was founded on the
principles of faith in fundamental
human rights," Ambassador Gold-
berg continued, "and in the dignity
and worth of the human person—
principles that are at the heart of
our efforts for peace in our own
country and in the world."
"I most deeply believe," he add-
ed, "that we cannot achieve peace
in the world until we first achieve
respect for individual rights in
every corner of the earth. As a
nation we have said that the peace
and dignity we seek for ourselves,
we seek for all mankind. The test
of that determination is not what
we say for the world to hear, but
what we do for all the world to see.
Mr. Goldberg pointed out that,
"in these past 30 and more years,

the divisive and demeaning forces
of prejudice and discrimination in
our country wherever and however
they occur.
"Our success," he concluded, "is
due in large measure to the spirit
of freedom and tolerance exempli-
fled in the work of the National
Conference of Christians and Jews.

I wish its efforts every continued
success, and I hope all Americans
will reflect on its purposes during
Brotherhood Week."

Other national figures of promi-
nence who are publicly supporting
Brotherhood Week this year are:

President Johnson; Roger W. Wilkins,
director-designate of the federal Corn-


present metropolis. Of her personal
career, she said: "My life has
always been good. There have, of
course, been difficulties; but the
difficulties had a purpose. There

has always been an atmosphere of

big things going on around us."

Arrangements for the training
mission were completed several
months ago by Israel and Nepal,
but implementation was delayed
by the refusal of India to allow
stopover landing rights to the
plane carrying the Nepalese troops.
India finally granted the neces-
sary permission last week.

dissident groups of former party
members would be welcomed back

She referred to the Israel Work-
ers Party (Rafi) formed by form-
er Premier David Ben-Gurion in

a challenge to Premier Eshkol's

party and national leadership, and
to Min Hayesod, a faction made
up of supporters of Pinhas Lavon,



former defense minister and sec-
retary general of the Histadrut,
the Israel labor federation. Lavon
was forced out of the defense
ministry by Ben-Gurion in a strug-
gle over a security disaster which
occurred in 1954.
Mrs. Meir, in her first press
conference since taking the Mapai

post, said that there was no rea-

son why members who left the
party to form Rafi should not
return. As far as the Min Hayesod
faction was concerned, she said,

the plea of Lavon backed Prof.
Haim Halperin that the Mapai
central committee reinstate Lavon
had not yet been considered. She

said that these and other mat-
ters would be taken up on her

return from the United States

where she will speak for the Isra-
el Bond campaign.

Mayor Namir presented to Mrs.
Meir a scroll which stated that
"Golda has ceased to be the name
of an individual, and has become
the symbolic name of a dedicated
daughter of Israel."
In her response, Mrs. Meir re-
called the Tel Aviv-Jaffa area of
