(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

NEW YORK — Formation of an
American organization to obtain
funds and works of art for the
Israel Museum, with Edward M.
M. Warburg as its chairman, was
announced here Monday by Theo-
dore Kollek, _mayor of Jerusalem
and chairman of the museum's
board of governors.
An organizational meeting of
the new American Patrons of the
Israel Museum was held Monday
night at the home of Arthur B.
Krim, president of United Artists.
The new group will be part of the
America-Israel Cultural Founda-
tion, and a list of its board of di-

PINHAS SAPIR, minister of
finance of Israel, arrived in New
York Tuesday to take part in a
weekend national conference of
the Israel Bond Organization. He
will address more than 350 Jewish
leaders from the United States and
Canada, who will meet at the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to review
Israel's economic needs and to
plan the 1967 campaign of hte Israel

art. He cited the index of Chris-
tian art at Princeton University
and the Renaissance archives at
the Courtauld and Warburg Insti-
tutes in London and said that simi-
larly "there will be housed in
Jerusalem comprehensive archives
of Jewish art."
Kollek said that the museum
had started acquiring objects for
its Jewish ritual and ceremonial
art displays. He mentioned a psalm
book from Spain, from before the
Spanish expulsion of Jews in 1492,
a gift of Jakob Michael, a New
York Jewish financier and philan-
thropist.

Kollek said at a press confer-
ence at the offices of the United
JewishAppeal here Monday that
defense — something no other
mayor in the world has to con-
tend with — is Jerusalem's first
problem in view of its border
location.

He called the integration of its
large immigrant population the
second gravest problem. The city's
population, now 195,000, has tripl-
ed since 1948, half of the present
population being people who have
come there since the state was
established, plus the children born
to them there.
Kollek, who met with Mayor
Lindsay Tuesday in City Hall, will
embark on a speaking tour for the
UJA of nearly -a dozen large
American cities. Discussing the
problems of governing the capital
of Israel, Kollek declared that ur-
ban renewal is more complicated
in Jerusalem than in New York
or any other American city be-
cause buildings of great antiquity
must be preserved while the need
for modern housing is constantly
on the increase in- his city.
