WASHINGTON — Assistant Sec-
retary of State Lucius Battle Tues-
day urged the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee to defeat leg-
islation that would prohibit im-
portation of Egyptian cotton and
stressed that such a ban would un-
dermine United States diplomatic
plans in the Middle East.
Two Senators took sharp issue
with Battle's position in testimony
before - a closed meeting of the
committee. Battle did not want his
testimony made public. A Senator
disclosed, however, that the State
Department "is still anxious to
curry favor with Nasser."

also taught at Columbia, Univer-
sity of Pittsburgh, Toronto, Penn-
sylvania, Southern California and
Berkeley.
Gold served as president of the
National Association of Jewish
Center workers, National Confer-
ence of Jewish Communal Service
and the Association of Jewish Com-
munal Executives. He also has
been vice president of the Amer-
ican Association of Group Workers
and chairman of the Governor's
Advisory Committee on Children
and Youth in California.
In a recent address to a 25th
anniversary meeting of the Los
Angeles Jewish Centers Associa-
tion, Gold said the Jewish Center
movement has been challenged to
meet the current "crisis of so-
ciety" by discarding the theory
that Jewish centers should be a
"vast playground" and establish
instead programs of study- and
action.
He declared also that Jewish
youth was non-intellectual and non-
cultural in Jewish terms and that
traditional liberalism had been re-
jected by Jewish youth activists.
He told the meeting that, among
the non - activist Jewish youth,
there was a withdrawal from
reality into mysticism and use of
drugs.
