The program will begin in the fall
with a grant of $12,500 for 25 stu-

for four years.
The plan, to be carried out in co-
operation with the Higher Education
Opportunities Committee, headed by
Federal Judge Wade H. McCree, Jr.,
will aid students, for whom no scho-
larship help is otherwise available, in
completing their education for pro-

be selected by the staff of the HEOC.
In addition to scholarship grants,
the services of the cultural, employ-

of Jewish agencies will be available
to the scholarship students for as-

Among the agencies which will be
available to provide services are
Shiffman Clinic of Sinai Hospital,
Jewish Vocational Service and Com-
munity Workshop, Fresh Air Society,
Jewish Family and Children's Service
and Jewish Center. Educational coun-
seling will be supplied by HEOC.
The scholarship plan was initiated
in the Jewish Community Council's

by Mrs. Julian Krolik. The Jewish

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The coalition cabinet reaffirmed Tuesday Israel's position that it will not withdraw from
occupied Arab territories in the absence of a peace treaty and that peace treaties with the Arabs can be achieved
only through direct negotiations. The cabinet also "noted" a report of Foreign Minister Abba Eban on foreign
policy matters, thereby endorsing, in effect, the policies and tactics employed by Eban to uphold Israel's position.
In a statement issued after a special meeting, the cabinet formally disassociated itself from the contents of a letter
that an Egyptian government spokesman claimed on May 15 was sent to Secretary General U Thant by the United
Nations peace envoy, Ambassador Gunnar V. Jarring. Dr. Jarring reportedly notified Thant that Egypt and Israel
had "indicated" to him their "acceptance of the Security Council resolution of Nov. 22, 1967" and their "intent to
devise (an) arrangement" under his auspices to implement the resolution. Eban told the cabinet Tuesday that
the letter's contents, so far as they purport to reflect the views of Israel, were not binding on the Israeli government.
He said further that the letter referred to by the Egyptian had been only a draft, was rejected by Israel and was
never sent to Thant.
The cabinet's statement was issued after two days of consultations between Prime Minister Eshkol and various
ministers. - It represented a compromise with the Gahal (Herut-Liberal) faction which has been critical of the govern-
ment and, especially, statements by Eban and Israel's UN ambassador, Yosef Tekoah, that Israel accepted the Nov. 22
resolution as a basis for peace. Gahal refused to go along with the cabinet's endorsement of Eban. The party
caucused Tuesday to decide whether or not to remain in the coalition government. However, a Gahal' minister,
Joseph Saphir, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency Monday night that Gahal was satisfied with the position enunci-
ated by the cabinet and was not likely to pull out at this time.
The Gahal position is that Eban should not have authorized Tekoah's statement on the Nov. 22 resolution with-
out prior consultation with the cabinet. They rejected Eban's assertion that there was not sufficient time for con-
sultations. Several other ministers agreed with Gahal but were ap-
convinced by Eban and Eshkol that the Tekoah statement
