"The essential response to the Israel
Emergency Fund has been hearty and
exciting. Its dimensions are the biggest
in the noble humanitarian traditions of
American Jewry. Our responsibility is
measured by the strength of our identi-

Reaches $4,700,000; Call
Is Made for Volunteers
At a meeting of volunteer workers for the Israel Emergency
Fund, held at the headquarters of the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion Tuesday, Paul Zuckerman, local chairman, reported that
$4,700,000 was certain to be on hand by Thutsday, most of
this sum already having been cabled to Israel.
Zuckerman appealed for volunteer workers to call those
who have not yet given—those who are waiting to be contacted
to share in the important obligation."
The meeting ,was one held simultaneously with 123 other
communities and the attendees were addressed over the long
distance phone by Max M. Fisher. national United Jewish
Appeal chairman, who expressed the hope that the emergency
fund will conclude on July 4 with an outpouring of aid that
will make the month's campaign "the most historic in Jewish
history." Fisher left for Israel Wednesday.
Messages also were received at the meeting from Mrs.
Harry Jones, national UJA women's division chairman, and
her associates in a survey mission to Israel She made a strong
plea for extra gifts by the women.
Zuckerman announced that 40 extra telephones were in-
stalled at the Federation for use by volunteer workers who
are asked to provide their assistance at once.
Mud-slinging by the combined Soviet and Arab forces at the United Nations General
Assembly and Israel's defensive efforts, with the aid of the liberal forces, fortified by the
United States, Denmark and other democratic nations, marked the debate at the historic
session of the assembly which is expected to remain in Session for at least two weeks.
While the debates continued to create bitterness, Israel's Foreign Minister Abba Eban
constantly being compelled to refute falsifications uttered by the Arab and Communist
spokesmen, Israel has proceeded to provide help for refugees, to cooperate with the Red
Cross and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees, and to
clean up the debris in the Old City of Jerusalem.
At the same time, Israel reiterates its offer for immediate direct negotiations with
"any and each" of the Arab states and to strive for a lasting peace.
Abba Eban, Israel's spokesman at the UN. gave assurance that he saw prospects for an
immediate solution of the refugee problem through direct peace negotiations with the Arab
The lifting of the ban on travel to Israel by the U. S. State Department w as among
the heartening news, giving assurance that the many thousands of American volunteers
for civilian services in the Jewish State now will be able to join the many thousands of
Christians and Jews from many lands in aiding Israel's affected economy.
Russia, however, has offered new military aid to Egypt without charge—which means
that Egypt will not have to send its cotton to the USSR in exchange for weapons. Russian
