Ambassador Linowitz Urges Creation
of 'Counterbudget' in NCJW Address

(Continued from page 37)
with — "in fragmentation and
secrecy"—has resulted in "such
anomalies as higher spending
for space exploration than for
health research, more on subsi-
dies to farmers than on food
stamps for the hungry, more for
Pentagon public relations than
for ways to dispose of the garb-
age that is burying us."
He suggested a "counterbudget"
with which the nation, could, with-
out a major increase in taxes,
eliminate poverty and hunger and
establish new health, housing and
education standards, as well as
quadruple federal expenditures for
better law enforcement.
Yakov Aviad, deputy consul gen-
eral of Israel in New York, took
the opportunity Monday afternoon
to explain in his talk Israel's posi-
tion in the current political im-
"Egypt's attitude," he said, "is
linked to an ultimatum: Evacuate
all of Sinai and then we shall talk
peace ... Israel, on the other hand,
is ready to negotiate everything. It
dictates nothing,
"What delayed peace was not
the disagreement about frontiers.
It was the Arab refusal to enter
into any kind of contact with Is-
rael, to recognize Israel's existence
and to accept it. Now that they be-
gin talking about a peace agree-
ment—and this in itself is an im-
portant development—they want to
dictate the peace formulas. Egypt
is still expressing sympathy with
the terrorist organizations. How
honest are her peace intentions?
Perhaps she is only maneuvering
for a later stage in which to de-
stroy Israel."
In her address Tuesday at an
evening plenary session on
"Council Woman in the Com-
munity," Mrs. Mary Dublin Key-
serling reported on the shortage
of day care facilities in the U.S.,
the subject of a report for
NCJW which she directed.
Mrs. Keyserling, former direc-
tor of the U.S. Department of La-
bor Women's Bureau, called that
shortage "one of the most impor-
tant and neglected problems con-
fronting American women today
and cited the NCJW for giving top
priority to action in that area.
More than 60 Council sections are
involved in organization and fin-
ancing of day care centers and
have contributed volunteers to staff

That afternoon the women were
addressed by Dr. Mary Calderone,
one of the country's staunchest
fighters for sex education in the
schools, liberal birth control laws
and abortion regulations.
The women saw a taped message
from Israel's Prime Minister
Golda Meir.
Mrs. Weiner, who has held the
NCJW national presidency since
1967, in her keynote speech to the
convention Sunday evening, de-
scribed the Council as "a woman's
lab for women's lib these many
years. This is the concept the
Council woman holds dear. Devel-
oping to her best potential and
putting herself to work for faith
and humanity has been the Coun-
cil woman's purpose since Hannah
G. Solomon formed this first na-
tional Jewish women's organiza-
tion out of the World's Fair in
1893," Mrs. Weiner said.
She listed the many programs
in which NCJW has been active
in this country and in Israel,
including the NCJVV's Center for
Research in Education of the
Disadvantaged at the Hebrew
University, now in its third
year. (A report on the center
was given by Dr. Abraham Min-
kowich, professor psychology
and education at Hebrew U.,
who told how the center tries to
upgrade the potential of cultur-

ally disadvantaged children from
North Africa and Asia.)
Mrs. Weiner warned the dele-
gates that they are the examples
to which their children look. "It is
not convincing to them when we
pay lip service to the Jewish ethic
of racial equality and the brother-
hood of man," she said. "We must
stop talking and intensify in our
daily lives our struggle to bring
economic and social opportunity to
the Blacks, the Spanish-speaking
Americans, the Indians who are
our neighbors and fellow citizens
and who still live in the dark cor-
ners of our society."
The executive director of
NCJW, Hannah Stein, said the
faith of Americans has been bad-
ly shaken, and they "badly need
something to believe in again.
"Business organizations, the most
effective wealth-creating institu-
tions yet devised by man, have not
invented ways of distributing their
products without leaving large
areas of poverty in the regions
where they have been success-
ful to say nothing of whole con-
tinents of poverty where they have
been less successful. . • . The
medical professions and the organi-
zations associated with them do no
better in the delivery of health
care. . . . Our religious organiza-
tions are bothered by schisms and
a sense of purposelessness as per ,.
plexing as it is profound."
