Pro-Arab Imbalance of UN Assailed

NEW YORK (JTA) — Yosef
Tekoah, Israeli ambassador to the
United Nations, said in a broad-
cast Monday morning that the
UN's record of achievement in the
Middle East was "disappointing."
that it has projected a pro-Arab
"parliamentary imbalance" instead
of a "blanced consensus," and
that it has "not even been able
to censure the murder of Israelis"
or enforce its own cease fires.
Tekoah, who has criticized the
world organization and Secre-
tary U Thant in the past, de-
clared that of the "countless
resolutions" on the Mid East
in the Gener Assembly, "al-
most all are ro-Arab," because
members with that attitude out-
number Israel by "40 or 50" to
"only one;" and that five of the
current 15 members of the de-
cision-making Security Council
were anti-Israel. The UN's
record, he charged, has fallen
short of its "lofty ideals."

view recorded recently in Israel

who previously represented Israel
in Brazil and in the Soviet Union,
asserted that a Mid East solution
must result from Arab-Israeli
negotiations, because "no war in
the world" has ever been settled
without direct talks between or
among the parties involved.
The attempt of the Big Four
to impose a settlement, he
charged, was "circumventing, de-
laying and undermining" the
search for peace. But Tekoah did
not recommend that the UN be

A United Nations spokesman
said Monday that Dr. Jarring was
continuing his consultations here
and had no present plans for
leaving New York. But Dr. Jar-
ring's meeting last Friday with

the United States completed his
round of talks with the Four
Powers and made it clear to him
that there had not been and was
not likely to be soon.. any Four
Power agreement on new "guide-
lines" for his mission.
Meanwhile informed sources
confirmed reports that the
Soviet Union has agreed to re-
talks on the
Middle East. They are expected
to begin in April between Joseph
Sisco, assistant secretary of
state for Near Eastern Affairs
and Soviet Ambassador Anatoly
F. Dobrynin.
The source said the Soviets had
agreed "in principle" to the new
talks because of the failure of the
Four Power deliberations con-
ducted in New York between the

States, Russi a, Britain and
They said the White House was
also believed to feel that the Four
Power talks had reached an im-
passe. But it was reliably reported
that the Soviets had approached
the U.S. regarding resumption of
the two-power approach.
President Nixon has stated in the
past that the U.S. was tired of
making proposals that the Soviets
constantly rebuffed and that the
next move was Moscoicis.

The Four Power meeting sched-
uled for Thursday was postponed
until next Tuesday at the request
of Lord Caradon, the British repre-
sentative. Lord Caradon gave a
speaking engagement as the rea-
son for his request.
Observers said the Four

State Department spokesman
Carl Bartch announced Tuesday
that Rogers and Dobrynin would
meet "within the next few days,"
but other sources said their meet-
ing would take place Wednesday
as an immediate followup to Secre-
tary Rogers' announcement Mon-
day that the sale of more war-
planes to Israel was being held
in abeyance.
Officials said the U.S. is inter-
ested in determining whether the
Soviets are willing to talk about
an agreement to limit arms ship-
ments to the Middle East.
There have been hints from the
Kremlin that it would keep to a
minimum the delivery of new
weapons to Egypt. The Russian-
made SAM-3 antiaircraft missiles
recently delivered to Egypt are
regarded by the U.S. as purely de-
fensive and not a danger at the
present time to the Mid East
military balance.
According to administration of-
ficials, the Soviets are exercising
restraint in arms shipments to
Egypt and are resisting Cairo's
demands for larger deliveries of
"offensive" weapons.

Beersheba a 1st-Prize Community

The Beersheba Town Center megastructure pictured here is one
of the buildings that have earned for the Negev city the second R.S.
Reynolds Memorial Award for Community Architecture. The center
contains stores, offices and apartments on different levels. The archi-
tects and planners of Beersheba will receive the international award,
which confers $25,000 and an original sculpture in aluminum "for the
dessign of a community in which architectural planning and design
have made a most significant contribution," according to the Amer-
ican Institute of Architects, which administers the program spon-
sored by Reynolds Metals Co. The award will be presented at the
AIA annual convention in Boston on June 25 to a representation of
the Israel Ministry of Housing, which administers the new towns
program. The $25,000 will be used for study grants in urban design
under the administration of Technion, Israel's technical university.
"The jury believes Beersheba to be of international significance in
the evaluation of town planning," the judges' report said. "It rep-
resents the full spectrum for community evolution. It is, in the
totality of development of new and old, an outstanding symbol of a
national urbanization policy."

Lion will be shot in cooperation
with the Yadran studios of Zagreb,
the very same studio where the
Russian sequence of "Isadora" was
duplicated two years ago. "Fiddler
on the Roof" will be in production
for a period of four months with
photography of the elaborate dance
sequences to commence later in
fall in the studios of London where
the best singers and dancers for
the mass scenes can be found.
Josef Stein, who adapted the
Arnold Pert dramatization of the
Sholem Aleichem yarn for the
stage musical, has also written
the screen play, leaving the basic
frame of the story very much
intact only enlarging the physical
scope of the setting now extended
from the hamlet of Anatevka to
reach out into the vast pale of
settlement in the Czarist Russia
of yesteryear. At the end, when
the Broadway musical somehow
declines, the motion picture ver-
sion adds a special touch with a
grand exodus of the oppressed
Jews of Poland now representing
a mass of humanity streaming
out of the old country to reach a
new world of freedom and reli-
gious liberties.
In Hollywood since 1962, Jewison
made his debut with a non-too-
successful screen comedy, "10
Pounds of Trouble," starring Tony
Curtis. Two run-of-the-mill Doris
Day pictures followed, "The Thrill
of It All" and "Send Me No Flow-
ers;" and "Art of Love," starring
James Garner, Dick Van Dyke
and Elke Sommer.
When, in 1965, the Steve Mc-
Queen, Edward G. Robinson star-
rer, "The Cincinnati Kid," hit the
screen, audiences and critics for
the first time took notice of a
great new directorial talent, Nor:,
