Prize for Bias Fighter

Fulbright Says Israel Controls Senate, Hits Jackson Proposal

TORONTO—Nicholas Munk,
a retired businessman, is of-
fering $10,000 prize in an in-
ternational competition to
select the non-Jewish person
who has made the most sig-
nificant contribution to under-
standing Jews and to "the
world-wide struggle against
anti-Semitism."

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Sen. J. William Fulbright
claimed on the CBS "Face
the Nation" television pro-
gram Sunday that the Senate
was "subservient" to Israel
and prevented the adminis-
tration from applying pres-
sure on that country.

rael wants. This has been
demonstrated time and again
and this has made it difficult
for our government," Ful-
bright said.
His charge predictably was
hailed in Cairo but denounc-
ed in Israel by Premier
Golda Meir. In an interview
published Monday in the
Ma pan newspaper Al Hamish-
mar, Mrs. Meir asked "Can
you remember when Sen. Ful-
bright has said anything posi-
tive about Israel?"
She characterized F u 1-
bright as "a man who hasn't
slept nights for years" be-
cause under American law
part of the United Jewish
Appeal funds are free of
income tax."
But the Cairo newspapers
Al Akhbar and Al Ahram
said Fulbrigh t's remarks
constituted "a courageous
voice of truth" on the Middle
East. Al Akhbar printed the
senator's statement in Eng-
lish on its front page and
urged Arabs to write him
expressing "appreciation of
this bold man to make him
realize that we respect and
uphold the supporters of
right and justice."
Mrs. Meir said that Ful-
bright "has been searching
for years" for some loophole
to void the tax exemption of
UJA contributions. "Maybe
one day he'll find some-
thing," she said. She recal-

retary of State for Near
CHICAGO (JTA)—Spertus Eastern Affairs Joseph J.
College of Judaica, an ac- Sisco testified before Ful-
credited liberal arts college,
has been awarded a 20-year
interest subsidy grant of
$1,500,000 by the Department
of Health, Education and
Welfare, according to Rich-
ard Freidman, HEW Chica-
go office regional director.
The HEW funds will repay
a major portion of the annual
interest charges on a $2,000,-
000 private loan which Sper-
tus officials are using to
purchase a former IBM
building and remodel it for
use as a new home for the
college.
The college will vacate its
quarters when the remodel-
ling of the former IBM
structure is finished, later
this year.
The 10-story building will
include a museum of Jewish
art, libraries on four floors,
and auditorium for college
community use, classrooms
and administrative and fac-
ulty offices.
Currently, 600 students
are enrolled in Spertus co-
operative degree programs,
which enable students of
colleges and universities in
the Chicago area to earn
credit in Judaica courses at
Spertus.

The Arkansas Democrat,
chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee, said the U.S. possessed
the leverage on Israel be-
cause "we supply all the
wherewithal — or a major
part of the -wherewithal—to
finance or to play for every-
thing Israel does." But, he
added, this leverage could
not be applied because "Is-
rael controls the Senate."
Fulbright said, "The Sen-
ate is subservient to Israel, in
my opinion much too much.
We should be more concern-
ed about the United States'
interest rather than doing
the bidding of Israel. This is
a most unusual development.
He also expressed opposi-
tion to the Jackson Amend-
ment linking most favored
nation treatment for the So-
viet Union to the removal of
emigration restrictions by
that country. But Fulbright
said the Senate would prob-
ably approve it.
He said he had supported
previous administration plans
to achieve a Middle Eastern
settlement, but Israel's ob-
jections were supported by
the Senate.

Mrs. Meir said "Money is

loans under American law,
so why is he so worried?"
