TEL AVIV (JTA)—Premier Golda Meir told an interviewer here Monday that Israel
has had contacts with some Arab officials since the Six-Day War, but that they have
not yielded positive results. Mrs. Meir ad vised the newspaper Yediot Ahronot that
she considers such contacts "important even though we have not, through them,
reached peace," adding, "The mere fact that there can be contacts is important."
Regarding her talks with Jose 1 ph Sisco, President Nixon's Middle East peace emis-
sary, Mrs. Meir said: "The atmosphere could not have been better. Even inasmuch as
there are differences of opinion, and in my opinion they are not very deep, the basic
fact is that there is a dialogue between friends, and there is no denial of the main
issues. After that there can be differences of opinion."
(Sisco, United States assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, arrived
in Teheran Sunday night for talks Monday with Iranian leaders on the Mid East crisis
and on U.S. policy toward Israel, with emphasis on arms
supplies. He had canceled his visit to Amman follow-
ing anti-American demonstrations by militant Jordanians.
He attended the two-day conference of America_n ambas-
sadors in Teheran Tuesday.)
JERUSALEM (JTA)—Cairo and Jerusalem have been
keeping one another informed of their respective views and
attitudes on the Middle East conflict through various inter-
national personages traveling between the two capitals on
a very informal, unofficial basis, it was learned from well-
informed sources here Sunday. The information confirmed
a statement by Foreign Minister Abba Eban in the Knesset
two weeks ago that unofficial contacts have been main-
tained between Israel and some of the Arab governments
since the June 1967 Six-Day War.
According to the sources, certain personages of inter-
national status have met from time to time over the pat
with Premier Golda Meir either before going to
Cairo or after having come from there. Both Mrs. Meir and
President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt were aware that
U.S. Assistant Secre-
those personages were going either to Cairo or to Jerusa-
lem and each used them as a courier to the other witheltary of State Joseph Sisco

Israel Defense Minister
bassador Gunnar V. Jarring, the United Nations spelial

peace envoy to the Mid East, and most recently by Dr.

Stanley D. Frankel, president of the junior division of the Allied
Jewish Campaign, pledged efforts of his workers toward an effort to
be the first division to ever reach 200 per - cent,ot its prior year's
number of pledges. The division has already cont#cted more than 100
per cent of last year's pledges for 168 per cent of its 1969 total.
Reaching a total 810,166,509 in contributions pledged by 17,700
towards the current Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel Emergency Fund,
the drive enters the final stages in solicitations.
The new high sum was reported at a meeting of campaign work-
ers at the Jewish Center Sunday morning. The meeting was addressed
by Albert Elazar, United Hebrew Schools superintendent.
Maxwell Jospey, campaign chairman, in a final appeal to work-
ers, emphasized the urgancy of the drive to provide fundskin support
of Israel's economic position, in behalf of the agencies that assist in
the settlement of many thousands of new settlers in Israel and to
assure uninterrupted aid for the more than 500 local, national and
overseas causes. He urged speedy contacts with the 8,000 more po-
tential givers from whom it is hoped to secure the additional funds
necessary to boost the total to be raised here this year to $12,000,000.
The concluding report meeting of campaign workers will be held,
jointly with the board of governors of the Jewish Welfare Federation,
at Federation headquarters, 163 Madison, at noon May 1.
Preceding that luncheon meeting, for an entire week, telephone
