"It is beyond comprehen-

Jews with exit visas waiting

they and their wives and their

medical help, money, homes,

"Their only hope, their last
desperate chance at a life
among their own people, to-
tally dependent upon an in-
visible family of unknown
kindred souls—Jews, some-

U.S.-French Discussion Gains
No 'Ground on Mideast Peace

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
President Ford and French
President Valery Giscard
D'Estaing discussed the Mid-
dle East during their two
days of talks in Martinique
but apparently did not re-
solve their differences over
how best to solve the Arab-
Israli conflict.
Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger told a press con-
ference in Martinique that
"there was a full exchange
of their respective point of
view. No conclusions were
reached or announced."
Pressed as to whether
France had agreed to the
United States policy of seek
ing step-by-step negotiations
in the Mideast, Kissinger re-
plied that "I don't think
there is any_French disagree-
ment with the step by step
approach if it can be achiev-
ed."
Earlier this month at the

conclusion' of a visit to Paris
by Soviet Communist Party
Secretary Leonid I. Brezh-
nev, D'Estaing and Brezhnev
called for a resumption of
the Geneva conference on the
Mideast "as soon as pos-
sible."
They said they did not see
a viable peace in the region
"with out the retreat of Is-
raeli troops from all ter-
ritories occupied in 1967."

As our fathers were taught
in ancient times, so it re-
mains true for all of us to-
day: "To save a single life
is to save the world."

right courses.—Anon
