In 1955, Reuther was named the
only labor member of a nine:man
citizens panel on the Peaceful
Uses of Atomic Energy set up by
the Joint Congressional Commit-
tee on Atomic Energy.
At the Weizmann Institute in
Rehovoth, Israel, the use of atomic
energy is now being developed in
two major areas: pure science;
and the discovery of . new re-
sources, including underground
waters, their sources and age, es-
sential to the planning of water
and agricultural economies, rele-
vant for Israel and the Middle
East region; and global in its im-
plications.

Humphrey; Foreign Minister Abba
Eban of Israel; UN Ambassador
Arthur Goldberg; Nobel Laureates
Dr. Albert B. Sabin and Dr. Jonas

ficial organ, the Observer, assailed
alleged
Israel last October
for ""
justice" toward the Arabs, said at
the time that it hopes to arrange
a meeting with representatives of
the Jewish and Arab communities
in Toronto to discuss the Middle'
East problem. Such a meeting, it
said, was approved by the church's
general council comprised of 57
lay and clerical leaders from all
parts of Canada.
Dr. Ernest Long, secretary of
the council, said: "We are very
anxious to create good will be-
tween the Jewish and Christian
people and the Arab and Chris-
tian people because there are so
many explosive issues."
In a prepared press release, the
council warned "If the Arabs con-
tinue to refuse to recognize Israel,
and if Israel continues to occupy
the lands she took, to obstruct the
return of the homeless, to insist on
meeting directly with the Arabs
without United Nations assistance
and to declare Jerusalem is not ne-
gotiable, there will be war again
in the Middle East, and 500,000 dis-
placed persons will be condemned
to exist on the meager subsistence
of the world's charity, without
homes and without hope." The
council urged "recognition of the
state of Israel by Egypt" and
called for an Israeli withdrawal
from territories she occupied in
the June war with "minor boun-
dary adjustments," Israeli p e r-
mission for all displaced Arabs to
return to their homes and Arab-
Israeli talks under United Nations
auspices "to arrange a settlement
that would include reparations for
compensation for Arab refugees."
The United Church of Canada is
a 43-year-old merger of Methodists,
Congregationalists and a section of
Presbyterians. The anti-Israel ar-
ticle carried by its house organ
last October was written by the
editor, Rev. A. C. Forrest, who
has since been giving anti-Israel,
pro-Arab lectures.
