Hebrew U. Center
to Concentrate on
Soviet Studies

JERUSALEM —A documentation
center concerning itself with Soviet
and East European affairs is to ne
established at the Hebrew Univer-
sity in the coming academic year

committee, chaired by Prof. Mi-
chael Conlin°, head of the univer-
sity's department of Russian rtii
presently lias
The university
some 15 scholars whose research
touches on topics related to Soviet
Russia and East Europe. The cen
ter will coordinate acquisition of
material for the work of the schol
ars in these fields and will sort all
printed and documentary material
presently available in the country .
and concentrated for the most part
in private collections. A basic re-
search library being set up by the
center will serve all interested re-
search workers.
Of prime importance in the de-
cision to open the center is the
university's concern with the ab-
sorption of academicians among
new immigrants from the Eastern
bloc countries.
The center will provide them with
an opportunity of integrating into
the Hebrew University of .Tertisa-
lem and will also create a frame-
work within which they will be
able to continue research work
begun in their countries of origin.

Italian Communist Party

Financing Arab Students'
Pro-Terrorist Rallies

ROME (JTA1—The Italian Com-
munist Party is financing a group
of Arab students, estimated to

number about 150, in arranging
demonstrations of solidarity with
the Arab terrorists in university
cities throughout the country.
The most recent demonstration
was held at the University of
Siena, where the itinerant Arab ,
students organized a public meet-
ing in the streets of the town to ,
show solidarity with "the freedom
fighter." Israeli students at the
, university circulated among the
spectators, passing out leaflets giv-
; ing information on the situation in
Israel and the occupied territories..
The two groups came face to
face on the steps of the town hall
and engaged in heated argument,
but there was no clashes.
Observers here warned that the
buildup being given to the Arab
terrorists and guerrillas was mak-
ing an impact on the Italian pub-
lic to whom they were being de-
picted as "freedom fighters" com-
parable to the anti-Nazi -under-
ground of World War II and the
Algerians fighting against the

Xr.ench for independence.

Say "SHALOM" To The Man
Who Speaks For Israel At the U.N.


His Excellency YOSEF TEKOAH

Israel's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, and
former Ambassador to the U.S.S.R., has distinguished himself
as a foremost diplomat and chief spokesman for Israel. His
brilliant and impressive advocacy of Israel's case in the critical
Security Council debates affecting Israel's future has won him
the admiration and respect not only of the whole Jewish people
but of all men of good will. A forceful and eloquent voice of
Israel in the international war of words, Yosef Tekoah is a fight-
er for the greatest word of all—SHALOM—PEACE. We are
most fortunate in having the opportunity of welcoming a man
of his caliber to Detroit on this occasion, which is dedicated to
Mrs. Golda Meir, Prime Minister of the State of Israel, its people
and its economic deVelopment.
