Truman Urges
Mid-East Amit7

(Continued from Page. 1)
Truman's message stressed two
themes: the urgent need in a nu-
clear-armed world of measures to
control the arms race and an equal
need for peace between Israel and
the Arab countries. In urging more
peaceful relations between the
Arab states and Israel, the former
President cited the history of re-
lations between the United States
and Mexico "in which we had many
bitter quarrels in the past."
He warned that a third World
War "could be unprecedented ca-
lamity, threatening the very exis-
tence of the human race on the
surface of the earth." He said that
the existence throughout the world
of an ever-growing arsenal of mis-
siles with nuclear warheads cap-
able of mass destruction made it
evident that there was no other
means to ensure the world's sur-
vival than by halting the nuclear
arms race. In view of this "terrific
situation," he declared, there was
no logical reason why any govern-
ment should refuse to reach under-
standing with its neighbors.
Meanwhile, a group of Hebrew
University students proposed
establishment of an Arab-Jewish
academic center on Mount Scopus
to deal with problems of the
Middle East.
They suggested that lectures be

given by Arab and Israeli experts

maids with forged certificates.

Even during the days of the
big German military victories
and while the holocaust was at
its peak, Heimrich displayed
liking and respect toward Jews,
encouraging them by word and
deed. He eventually married a

JERUSALEM — Israel has al-
