UJA LEADERSHIP: Something new has been added by the
United Jewish Appeal at its annual national conference being held
this weekend in New York ... During all the years of its existence,
the UJA had a national chairman, but no president . . . At its annual
meeting now a post of UJA president was established . . . This post
will be held by Max M. Fisher, the beloved UJA leader, who has
concluded his third term as general chairman . . . The general
chairmanship now goes to Edward Ginsberg, of Cleveland . . .
Fisher, who started his contributions to Jewish philanthropies as a
student, is today considered the outstanding Jewish leader in the field
of Jewish philanthropy by Jews and non-Jews alike . . . History will
credit him with helping raise UJA's income to the highest level in
recent years . . . Not to speak of the unprecedented sum raised under
his leadership this year for the historic Israel Emergency Fund cam-
paign conducted by the UJA during the Six-Day War period . . . Just
before the hostilities against Israel broke out, when tension was at its
peak, Mr. Fisher visited Israel with Herbert H. Friedman. executive
vice-president of the UJA, for a survey which resulted in the launching
of the eventful Israel Emergency Fund . . . History will credit him
with cementing the link between the UJA and the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds of which he is a vice president . .
It was the close cooperation between these two central Jewish bodies
that made the UJA's Israel Emergency Fund campaign this year the
most stupendous show of Jewish unity . . Mild-mannered and a
charming person, Fisher has done much not only for the UJA,
but also for the United Israel Apocal of which he is the treasurer.
and for the Joint Distribution Committee of which he is a member
of the executive . . . Simultaneously with his UJA responsibilities he
has served as president of Detroit's non-sectarian United Foundation
the nation's largest Community Chest — and was chairman of the
Jewish Welfare Federation of Detroit. where he resides, as well as
several times head of its Allied Jewish Campaign . . The acceptance
now by Fisher of the presidency of the national United Jewish
Appeal assures maximum support for the 1968 UJA regular campaign
and for the 1968 Israel Emergency Fund . . Fisher is prominent
in the U.S. petroleum industry and has greatly helped the Israel
government in the development of the country's petro-chemical

fellow members of the Cabinet,
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan and
Labor Minister Yigal Allon, were
"expansionists." Mapam, of which
Barzilai is a member, said that
the Le Monde correspondent had
drawn erroneous conclusions from
a statement by the health minister
that he opposed those circles who
refused to countenance any with-
drawal by Israel from territory
occupied in the June war.
The dispatch, which construed
this as an attack on Dayan and
Alton by one of their colleagues
was featured on page one of Le
Monde, a newspaper known to re-
flect Gaullist views. It drew con-

siderable comment from political

and Canada's department of ex-

authorities to the presence of war
criminals on Canadian soil, and
the department of external affairs
is in the process of getting a legal
opinion from the justice depart-
ment on pie effect on the citizen-
ship and/ immigrant status of the
alleged criminals, the report said.

Macomber pointed out that while
the United States deplored the
cease-fire violation represented by
the sinking of the Elath, "we have
taken a similar position on other
violations of the cease-fire such
as the destruction of the refinery
