LBJ Urges Return of Former
Residents to Vest Jordan Bank:
Ban on Egyptian Cotton Opposed

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Presi-
dent Johnson said the United
States supported the return of Arab
refugees to the West Bank area
now held by Israel.
In a telegram to Sen. Albert B.'
Gore. Tenn. Dem., who told the
Senate of the urgent need for set-
tlement of the refugee question.
Johnson said: "I am in full agree-
ment with your views concerning
the urgent need for the return to
the West Bank of as many of the
displaced people as possible. These'
people have been uprooted from
their established places of resi-
dence and in many cases separated
from their families. Moreover," i
the President added. "it is neither
humane nor logical for them to be
living in make-shift and inadequate
camps when far better conditions
exist on the West Bank."
Johnson said the United States
was "gratified" that Israel had
said it would permit these people
to return and urged Israel to do
so in a way that would enable
the "maximum number" to re-
turn. He noted that Israel had
said it was taking "urgent steps
to restore economic activity on
the West Bank" and would en-
courage the displaced Arabs to
return.
The State Department voiced
strong objections to a bill which

Harman Lauds Role
of Volunteers in 'Illegal
Immigration' Period

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Israel
has been encouraged by the many
volunteers who offered their serv-
ices in the current crisis but owes
an eternal debt to those who
served in the "Aliya Bet" 20
years ago, Isr a e l i Ambassador
Avraham Harman told the 20th
anniversary reunion Monday of
Americans. Canadian, and Latin
Americans who manned the so-
called "illegal immigration" ships
during the pre-state period.
The reunion was highlighted by
the presentation of a plaque by
the Aliya Bet volunteers to the
Smithsonian Institution. The
plaque will be displayed in a perm-
anent exhibit featuring a model of
the S.S. Exodus, for merly the
President Warfield. Elihu Berg-
man, of Seattle, Wash., acted as
chairman of the ceremony at the
museum.
The Israel Embassy tendered a
reception honoring those who
gathered here for the reunion, in-
cluding crewmen of the Exodus
and nine other Aliya Bet ships

Despite the fact that Egypt

over the recent Israeli-Arab war,
Rostow said "we wish to do noth-
ing at this stage which would
make restoration of normal re-
lations more difficult when con-
ditions evolve sufficiently to per-
mit that step."

He stressed that the adminis-
tration hoped for early renewal of
ties with Egypt and six other Arab
nations which ended relations. He
expressed regret at the absence
of relations and said diplomatic
contacts were particularly required
in times of tension "when the risk
is great that misunderstanding can
escalate into hosility."

He told the Congressmen that
the bill to ban cotton imports would
serve no useful purpose and would
be construed by Egypt as a viola-
tion of United States pledges on
international trade and might have
the side effect of penalizing Peru,
another exporter of long staple
cotton. Congressmen had made it
clear that the legislation had been
conceived to cut cotton imports
from Egypt arid the Sudan because
of the recent aggressive conduct of
the two Moslem nations.
Sen. Gore said that a firm
peace in the Middle East was im-
possible until the Arab refugee
problem is solved.
In a report on his 8-day visit to
the Middle East to examine the
refugee situation, he said the re-
turn to established refugee camps
of 180,000 who fled last month was
a necessary first step to resolving
the overall problem of 1.3 million
Arab refugees.

NEW YORK (JTA) — Police
Commissioner Howard R. Leary
has ordered New York City police-
men not to issue summonses to
Orthodox Jews who keep their
family businesses open on Sunday.
Although the New York Fair
Sabbath Law allows such busi-
nesses to remain open on Sunday,
if another day of the week is ob-
served as the Sabbath, a spokes-
man for the police commissioner
conceded that "perhaps some of
the men in the field did not un-
derstand what the law was about."
Leary acted after a meeting
with representatives of the Com-
mission on Law and Public Af-
fairs, a recently organized group
of lawyers representing Orthodox
Jewish organizations, who com-
plained that there was still wide-
spread harassment by the police
of Jewish merchants on the lower
East Side of Manhattan and the
Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
Dr. Marvin Schick, the head of
the commission, who teaches con-
stitutional law at Hunter College.
noted that "despite the fact that
the Fair Sabbath Law has been in
existence for five years. not a
week has gone by without dozens
and dozens of Jewish merchants
being hit by summonses."
