THE UJA FRONT: After more than two weeks of extraordinary giving

for the Israel Emergency Fund of the United Jewish Appeal, many

cities are still showing continued momentum of gifts — in cash pay-
ments and in pledges—in addition to contributions to the regular UJA

annual campaign . . . Almost all communities are concentrating to
complete the emergency fund before the end of this month . . . In
the Jewish federations and welfare funds, women's divisions continue
to bring womanpower. resourcefulness, and "plus" dollars to the
campaign . . Country clubs are closing their golf courses while fund
raising meetings are being held . . . Elderly people without checking
accounts are coming with cash - . . Secretaries are corning in during
lunch hours with their salary checks and endorse them over entirely as
contributions . . . Children are bringing in their coin banks and bags
of pennies to empty them as contributions . . . School and college
graduates are turning over their savings . . . Boy scout troops and
youth clubs are turning over their treasuries . . . students have can-
celled their graduation parties to give what was saved to the Emer-
gency Fund . . . Mail is pouring into the offices with contributions
not only from Jews but also from non-Jews . . . Gifts are coming
from people of all views, including substantial gifts from persons
associated with the American Council for Judaism . . . An interesting
development is reported from Cleveland, where a local bank — as a
public service — has set aside $1,000,000 to make available loans to
individuals to pay their pledges to the Emergency Fund at interest
one-half per cent below the prime rate.

JEWISH MANPOWER: There are today at least 10,000 Jews and non-
Jews in the United States registered as volunteers for non-military
service in Israel . . . This is the estimate of Theodore Comet, of
the American Zionist Youth Foundation — the organization which
has been given the responsibility for handling applications and place-
ment of volunteers . . . Comet tells me that since the outbreak of the
Arab-Israel war, more than '7,000 volunteers have registered in all
parts of the country, and 3,000 more in New York .. . Most interest-
ing is the fact that many of them are Jewishly peripheral, and it was
the renewed Arab war against Israel that brought out in them "dos
pintele Yid" — their inner Jewish feelings . In European countries,
where traveling to Israel was not banned after the outbreak of the
Arab-Israel war, more than 12,000 volunteers are reported to have
registered for service in Israel ... Many of them have already arrived
there; others are en route ready to be assigned to any work in agri-
culture and in industry to replace those who are still in uniforms
of the Israeli armed forces ... At present, Israel's needs are primarily
for long term service of one year or more, in addition to the regular

annual summer programs for young people . . . The special summer
needs are being assisted by those who went from America before
hostilities broke out and by volunteers from Europe who continued
to go . . . The AZYF is registering volunteers classified by skills and
other qualifications . . . Specific information on the needs and oppor-
tunities will be provided by the AZYF as the assessment of Israel's
requirements continue.

sures by premature withdrawal"

a House-Senate Concurrent resolu-
tion introduced in the House by
Rep. Halpern, New York Republi-
The resolution maintained that
Israel should not be expected to
withdraw "from certain occupied
areas in a manner which would
jeopardize regional and world
peace, without necessary peace
settlements and guarantees."

It noted that "pressures have
been brought to bear upon Israel
at the United Nations and from

other sources to force Israel to
make immediate and unconditional
withdrawal from all territories oc-
cupied." The resolution termed

called for direct negotiations be-
tween Israel and the Arabs as a

condition for the recall of troops
from the conquered areas.
Notice was taken that "certain
territory occupied by Israel, in-

cluding Jerusalem, is traditionally
and historically Jewish in char-
acter, previously separated from
Israel by armistice lines no longer

aggression, and, therefore, not

The resolution pointed out
that "Israel was forced into a
war of self-defense bringing her
armies into the present cease-
fire disposition." It cited Ameri-

called on President Johnson to
heed the sense of Congress on
the withdrawal question.

Nazi Victims' Monument

sored a resolution urging President
Johnson to seek five objectives in
achieving Mideast peace and urg-
ing presidential opposition to pre-
mature Israeli withdrawal "to
avoid repeating the mistake of
1956 which led to a resumption of
hostilities 11 years later.
The resolution called for oppo-
sition to any precondition to nego-
tiation that would require "the
relinquishment by Israel of ter-
ritories possessed" at the time of
the cease-fire. The measure was
originated by Rep. Charles W.
Whalen, Ohio Republican, who cir-
culated it among House members.
The five objectives advocated
included: Arab recognition of
Israel, freedom of passage in
Aqaba Gulf and Suez, final settle-
ment of boundaries, restrictions of
arms flow to the region, and resolu-
tion of the Arab refugee problem.
The resolution stressed that the
Executive Department should re-
flect national attitudes regarding
Israel's rights in dealings at the
United Nations and otherwise.
Signatories included members of
both parties.
In Dallas, a State Department
specialist on Middle Eastern af-
fairs said at a news conference
that Israel will return occupied
territories because she cannot
afford to keep them. John E.
Horner said "the problem of gov-
erning these territories would be
almost insurmountable for Israel."
(Horner held that Israel's regular
army was not adequate to the task
of military government and would
require reserves. He said that the
Army must soon demobilize re-
