Do YOU Have to Be Called for a Contribution
To the Vitally Needed Israel Emergen - cy Fund?
Detroit's effort for the IsraelEmergency Fund—the vital task now being conducted to provide for Israel's reconstruction
after a war which would have crippled Israel's economy without the assistance of American Jewry—is showing good results.
The chairman of the campaign, Paul Zuckerman, reports that the sum of $5,200,000 has already been exceeded. But there
are thousands who are yet to be enrolled in this great effort. Some have said that they have been waiting to be called for their
gifts. Do YOU have to be called? Or ... will YOU be among the voluntary contributors who will assure the unity of our
community in support of the most serious philanthropic undertaking in our community's history? Do not wait! Make your gift
now! Call the Allied Jewish Campaign, WOodward 5-3939, or send your check at once to 163 Madison, Detroit, Mich. 48226.
And YOU can render additional service by volunteering to contact the unsolicited. ACT NOW!

Eshkol Sees Direct Talks as Only Solution
Under constant attack by. Arab and Communist spokesmen at the
United Nations General Assembly, Israel's spokesmen, headed by the coun-
try's foreign minister Abba Eban, continue to outline Israel's role and
place their emphasis on the urgency of direct negotiations between Israel
and the Arab states.
Replying to an attack by King Hussein of Jordan and his threat of a
continuation of the war, at the session on Monday afternoon, Eban reiterated
that "a dialogue" between Israelis and Arabs is the first essential to peace
and presented a formula for action.
At the same time, in Jerusalem, Israel's Prime Minister declared that
direct talks are the only solution to the problem.
An "all for all" exchange of prisoners between Israel and Jordan was
agreed upon, as a result of negotiations conducted by the International

In reply to the repeated attacks on Israel by USSR Prime Minister
Alexei Kosygin at the press conference at the UN, Sunday night, Eban said:

Council. The charge of Israeli aggression is in total contradiction to truth
and reality, and is rejected by progressive and peace-loving circles through-
out the world, which uphold Israel's struggle for security. peace and right
"Chairman Kosygin's only proposal was for a return in effect to the
situation led to the recent hostilities. It is not Israel's insistence on the rec-
ognition of her sovereignty. the respect of her security and the conclusions
of peace which would create conditions for new hostilities in the Middle East.
"On the contrary. insistence on the withdrawal without assuring peace
would create such conditions. This has been specifically recognized not only
by Israel but by other governments whose leaders have made statements in-
side and outside the United Nations this week. The Soviet proposal is a
prescription for new hostilities.
