Arabs, Communists Walk Out THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
as Israeli Addresses UN Parley Form& Jewish School in Damascus

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

NEW DELHI—A mass walkout
staged at the United Nations
Conference on Trade and Develop-
ment (UNCTAD) here Wednes-
day when Zeev Sharef, Israel's
minister of commerce and indus-
try and head of the Israeli delega-
tion, mounted the rostrum to make
his initial address before the in-
ternational gathering. Leaving the
chamber were the entire Arab,
Communist and African blocs
along with Pakistan, Afghanistan
and some members of the Indian
delegation.
The demonstration, with its
clearly political motive, injected
an unsavory note into what all of
the delegates agree, at least offi-
cially, is a nonpolitical parley.
UNCTAD was convened to devise
global strategy toward helping
underdeveloped nations advance
in the areas of trade and com-
merce. The Arab delegates and
those of the USSR had earlier,
carefully refrained from mention-
ing the Middle East or Vietnam—
the two global hot spots—in their
speeches. Two Communist bloc na-
tions did, however. The Czech
delegate referred to Vietnam and
the "recent aggression against
some Arab countries."

JNF BLUE BOX

The JNF Blue Box is so much more
than a fund raising medium. It consti-
tutes our tangible link with the soil of
Israel and is a living connection with
the early days of Zionist history. It was
on the last day of the memorable Fifth
Zionist Congress on December 29, 1901,
In Baste, that Theodor Herzl first asked
for contributions towards the Jewish
National Fund, himself placing the first
coin from his own pocket into his hat.
From then onward the idea expanded
to embrace the whole of Jewry, with
the first Blue Box manufactured in
Vienna In 1902.
In these days of massive direct ap-
peals, Isn't the Blue Box as a fund
raising medium out-dated? No, the Blue
Box Is the method best suited for
donations by the masses embracing
every member of the family, young and
old, and should become an automatic
act in the preservation of the Jewish
national Idea, a vivid educational means
of reminding our children of their
history and destiny.
How wonderful to think that In all
the strains of Jewish history during 65
years, the little collection box of the
Jewish National Fund is as alive today
as ever It has been!
The Blue Box links every home which
It graces with Israel, and fits Into the
pattern of Jewish life everywhere, for
it affords everyone the opportunity to

add his or her contribution to the
Jewish National Fund,

Tuesday, the Bulgarian min-
ister for foreign trade, Ivan
Boudinov, charged that "Ameri-
can aggression" in Vietnam and
Israel's refusal to withdraw
from its "illegal occupation" of
Arab territory were obstacles to
the aims of the conference. The
Bulgarian statement was sharply
rebuked by Israel's ambassador
Michael Comay, who is floor
chairman of the Israeli delega-
tion, for making political refer-
ences at a nonpolitical confer-
ence.
This and India's pressure on
the Arabs not to embitter the pro-
ceedings, apparently caused the
restraint shown later on by sneak-
ers for Iraq, the United Arab
Republic and the USSR.
Sharef, in his address, called for
liberal measures to promote trade
with nations trying to develop
their industry and commerce, sup-
ported by a flow of aid. The
alternative, he warned, would be
the development of several closed
and unequal blocs.

`2 Snowfalls a Decade"
Proves False Forecast
in Snowy Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (JTA)—Snow fell
again last week in Jerusalem—
for the second time in two weeks
—as the city girded for a possible
repeat of the havoc caused by the
earlier storm.
When the Knesset (parliament)
prudently cut its session short
Jan. 31 so that members could get
home before roads became im-
passable and public transport sus-
pended—as it was three weeks
ago—several morning newspapers
thought this too timid and roundly
criticized the Knesset presidium
in editorials.
But Jerusalemites, who are sup
posed to experience only two snow
falls a decade according to weather
bureau statistics, were taking no
chances. Emergency services were
organized by the municipality. and
snow clearing equipment was
primed and ready. The only mis-
haps reported initially were frozen
fuel in central heating pipelines
and several collisions as auto-
mobiles skidded on the snow-
slicked streets.

Terrorist Given
30-Year Sentence

TEL AVIV (JTA)—A military
court in the Tulkarem-Samaria
district pronounced a 30-year sen-
tence on an Arab who was convict-
ed of acting as a "supply officer"
of El Fatah terrorist gangs active
in the district. According to the
evidence, the prisoner whose
name was not given, brought food
to terrorist holed up in caves. Un-
der military law this is a capital
offense. But the court exercised
leniency because the prisoner gave
evidence that led to the arrest and
conviction of a large number of
El Fatah members.

Headquarters for Training El Fatah

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A Jewish
school in Damascus, confiscated by
Syrian authorities, is serving as
headquarters and recruiting center
for the El Fatah terriorist organi-
zation which trains saboteurs for
incursions into Israel.
This was disclosed to an Israeli
military tribunal in Jenin Monday
by a captured 19-year-old El Fatah
member, Mouhamed Achmed
Sallah, who was sentenced to 10
years' imprisonment for terrorist
activities.
The school, located in the middle
of Damascus' Jewish quarter, was
operated by the Alliance Israelite
Universelle, a French-based organ-
ization that maintains a network of
Jewish schools in Arab and other
lands.
Young Sallah, a native of Jenin
on the West Bank, told the court
that he fled to Amman during
the Six-Day War where he joined
a cousin who was about to be
drafted into the Arab---Legion.
To avoid the draft, he and his
cousin fled to Syria where they
both joined El Fatah. They were
recruited at the Alliance school
building.
A military tribunal in Lydda
opened the trial Monday of eight
members of the El Fatah who were
implicated in the attempted bomb-
ing of the crowded Zion cinema in
downtown Jerusalem last Oct. 9.
The tribunal revealed last Friday
the true name of th self-proclaimed
"leader" of the El Fatah gang,
known hitherto as "Dr. Nur." He
is Mahmoud Assad and is neither
a leader nor an important member
of the gang, although the informa-
tion he gave Israeli security
authorities after his arrest con-

tributed to the prompt round-up of
the terrorists, a military spokes-
man said.
It also saved him from a life
sentence. He was given 30 years'
imprisonment and thanked his
Israeli defense counsel after the
trial although he lamented, "I shall
be an old man when I come out."

Golda Meir Accepts
Post in Labor Party

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Mrs. Golda

Meir exercised her womanly pre-

rogative and changed her mind—
she agreed to accept the post of
secretary-general of Israel's new
united labor party, an amalgam
of Mapai and the former dissident
Rafi and Ahdut Avoda factions.
Previously she had refused the
job.
Mrs. Meir, who had been secre-
tary-general of Mapai, relinquish-
ed that post when the merger,
which she strongly opposed, was
effected. However, Prime Minister
Eshkol and others in the party
urged her to keep the position in
the new labor party. Eshkol
visited Mrs. Meir at her home yes-
terday and apparently his powers
of persuasion succeeded. The new
party's secretariat will hold its
first meeting next week.
