much money." He added that
"we have time, territory and the
power of rule. We know the area
—it is defined—but we do not
know how much time. He empha-
sized that Israel could not "es-
cape from preparing for a re-
newal of war against us."
Eshkol said that "Israel's prime
desire remains peace but the key
is with Egypt, which prevents
peace with Jordan." He warned
that Israel would resist all pres-
sures until a peace treaty with
the Arabs was signed. He declared
that the United States had shown
friendship and understanding for
Israel, despite differences of opin-
ion over such matters as the status
of Jerusalem. The Premier added
that it should be clear to all that
Israel would not relinquish its
rule over unified Jerusalem but,
he continued, there was the pos-
sibility that the "legitimate in-
terests" of the world's religions
with respect to their Holy Places
could be safeguarded by an Is-
raeli agreement with their institu-
tions.

Eban Tells Jarring Israel
Retains Position on Peace
THE HAGUE (JTA)—Israel's
Foreign Minister Abba Eban con-
ferred with the United Nations spe-
cial envoy to the Middle East, Am-
bassador Gunnar V. Jarring, here
at Dr. Jarring's request. The UN
envoy, vacationing in Sweden, flew
in from Stockholm for the meeting.
Eban was here attending a con-
ference of Israeli ambassadors to
European capitals. An Israel em-
bassy source said the conversa-
tions consisted of a review of the
Middle Eastern situation • since the
last Eban-Jarring meeting May 12.
He said no new proposals were
conveyed to Eban. Dr. Jarring is
using his vacation to renew con-
tacts with Middle Eastern govern-
ments on high levels. He was vis-
ited in Stockholm a week ago by
Egyptian Foreign Minister Ma-
moud Riad.
According to the embassy
spokesman, Eban repeated Israel's
readiness to cooperate with Dr.
Jarring to promote peace.

Israel Rejects Syrian
UN Charges on the Golan
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA)
—Israel rejected Syrian charges
that it was "colonizing" the occu-
pied Golan Heights without regard
for "international norms of con-
duct." Ambassador Yosef Tekoah,
Israel's permanent representative
to the United Nations, declared in
a letter to Secretary-General U
Thant that the "colonization" re-
ferred to in the Syrian complaint
was a legitimate defense move
"undertaken with the assistance of
the Nahal units of the Israel De-
fense Force to ensure the mainte-
nance of the cease-fire and to pro-
tect Israel from the danger of
Syrian attacks." Nahal is a para-
military organization whose mem-
bers establish security settlements
in Israel's border regions.
Tekoah told Secretary-General U
Thant that Arabs in Israeli-held
territories were treated better than
Jews in Arab states. Tekoah con-
ferred with Thant at Tekoah's re-
quest and reiterated Israel's posi-
tion that a special UN mission to
investigate the suituation of civil-
ians in the occupied territories
must also look into the situation
of Jews in Egypt, Syria and Leb-
anon. There is no Jordanian Jew-
ish community.
The Israeli told Thant, sources
said, that the Arabs in the occu-
pied territories were free to talk
with journalists and visitors, and
can keep in contact with the out-

side world, whereas Jews in the
Arab states were kept isolated
from the world. He said that the
human rights of those Jews had
been tragically abused.
Tekoah's meeting with Thant
followed the submission of a let-
ter to the latter by Israel yester-
day alleging maltreatment of Jews
in Iraq. He presented Thant with
a second note dealing with Jews
of Egypt, Syria and Jordan.
Citing his own letter of May 31
to Thant in which Tekoah said
there was a "serious aggravation"
of the situation of Jews in Iraq,
the Israeli Ambassador said today
that Iraq's reply on June 3 did not
refute the charges. In Iraq's reply,'
its UN envoy Adnan Pachachi said
that Iraqi Jews "enjoy complete
equality with other citizens." Mr.
Tekoah had assailed recent Iraqi
legislation as discriminatory and
Pachachi replied that the laws
were designed "to protect the
interests of loyal Jewish citizens
of Iraq," describing them as "mi-
nor legislative measures." In his
letter yesteerday, Tekoah declared
that "it is a cynical and callous
mockery of human rights to de-
scribe Hitlerite legislation" as
"minor." The laws involved, Te-
koah said in his May 3f message,
denied Jews civil liberaties, free-
dom of movement and the pos-
sibility of employment. -

$1,100,000 Transmitted to UJA; Federation

Steps Up Cash Collection Drive in Detroit

After a record-breaking 1968
Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund achievement,
Detroit Jewry is converting its
pledge commitments into cash at
an unprecedented pace.
During June the Jewish Welfare
Federation transmitted $1,100,000
to the United Jewish Appeal for
immediate use in Israel. This is
the largest amount ever forwarded
in the spring period, according to
Alfred L. Deutsch, 1968 campaign
chairman.
Success in the cash campaign is
credited to the work of the emer-
gency cash mobilization committee
under the chairmanship of Irwin
I. Cohn, and the cash collection re-
view committee headed by Warren
D. Greenstone. Both committees
are now addressing their efforts to
approaching additional contribu-
tions for immediate payments.
The cash mobilization commit-
tee is charged with reaching
larger contributors, and the re-
view committee is working on
accounts of prior years.
Paul Zuckerman, National chair-
man of the United Jewish Appeal,
leader in the national cash collec-
tion effort, is working on the pro-
gram on a country-wide basis and
has been aiding the Cohn commit-
tee in Detroit.

"Each dollar of cash that can be
sent to Israel's people will help
strengthen and care for the people
on the home front. Safran said,
We must respond now."
Payments on campaign pledges
may be made at the offices of the
Jewish Welfare Federation, Fred
M. Butzel Bldg., 163 Madison, De-
troit 48226, any time from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Cohn reported that the collection
program had taken a big step for-
ward with a $100,000 check from
the Edward C. Levy Foundation.
It is the largest single cash pay-
ment made during the present
cash campaign.

An unusually large response has
come as the result of recent re-
minders sent to contributors that
Israel's need for money was im-
mediate, according to Hyman Saf-
ran, Federation president. He
stated:

"It is all very well that we have
raised $9,607,000 soaring our 1968
Campaign but these are promises
on paper which we know are very
good, but they feed the hungry
child today and give the needy
family a roof over its head to-
night only when converted to cash.

Zionist Peace Corp
Will Expand Soon

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The Zion-
ist version of the Peace Corps—
a movement which brings young-
sters from all parts of the world
to Israel for a year's voluntary
service on a kibutz—will be in-
creased threefold, according to a
resolution adopted here at the clos-
ing session of the conference of
the World Confederation of Gen-
eral Zionists. The General Zionists
and the Jewish Agency jointly fi-
nance the movement which is
known as "Shnat Sherut" (Year's
Service). They plan to increase
the number of volunteers from 200
to 600 a year and have agreed to
finance the purchase or construc-
tion of additional youth hostels in
Israel to accommodate the in-
crease.
(The American Zionist Youth
Foundation announced in New
York that more than 1,500 high
school and college students will
participate this summer in pro-
grams in Israel. According to
Charles Bick, chairman, the Sum-
mer Kibutz in Israel program has
tripled its enrollment this year
with 450 participants. He credited
the increased interest in Israel
among college students and the
:work of local Israel programs com-
mittees for the record enrollment.
The Sherut La'am (National Serv-
ice) which is the American title
for "Shnat Sherut" will _send 150
volunteers to Israel this year.
Other American youth will par-
ticipate in the Israel Summer In-
stitute, a study and tour program
for college-aged youngsters estab-
lished 20 years ago.)
Dr. Israel Goldstein, president
of Keren Hayesod, the fund-rais-
ing arm of the World Zionist move-
ment, was elected co-chairman of
the World Confederation of Gen-
eral Zionists along with Mrs. Rose
L. Halprin of New York. Elected
vice chairmen were Mrs. Charlotte
Jacobson, president of Hadassah,
who was also elected to the Jewish
Agency Executive, and Ezra Shapi-
ro. Kalman Sultanik was elected
executive vice chairman.
