THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Largest Delegation From U.S.
Joins 1st UJA Parley in Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The largest delegation
ever of American Jewish
leaders — more than
3,000 of them — were
joined by 4,000 Israelis at
the Yad Eliahu Sports
Stadium in Tel Aviv
Monday for the opening
of the first United Jewish
Appeal national confer-
ence ever to be held in Is-
rael.
The event turned into a
mass demonstration of
solidarity with Israel, a
theme stressed by Presi-
dent Ephraim Katzir.
Katzir spoke to the de-
legates about Israel's ex-
ternal and internal prob-
lems. He urged a joint
campaign to open the
doors for the immigration
to Israel of Jews in the
Soviet Union and those
still in Arab lands.
He stressed, however,
that Israel's future re-
quired the immigration of
Western Jews as well. He
did not ignore the
shortcomings of Israeli
society. He said the coun-
try needed the joint efforts
of world Jewry to over-
come them. He predicted
that in the long run, Israel
would enjoy peace and
.cooperation with its
neighbors.
Mayor Shlomo Lehat of
Tel Aviv said in greeting
the UJA delegates that

Israel's main problem
was no longer to secure
itself because Israel will
"live forever." The main
problem, he said, is to
learn how to live together
and he asked for in-
creased aliya.
Frank Lautenberg,
general chairman of the
UJA, observed in his
speech that whereas
some say that Israel is a
burden, "We say that - Is-
rael is not a burden but a
source of inspiration to
freedom loving people
everywhere."

He was referring to re-
mark made by U.S. Gen.
George S. Brown that Is-
rael was a military "bur-
den" on the U.S. Lauten-
berg pledged that the
American-Jewish com-
munity would continue to
support Israel with grea-
ter zeal and greater effort
than ever before. "We
want to tell the entire
world that our lives are
tied to Israel by eternal
ties."
Former Premier Golda
Meir was unable to ad-
dress the UJA opening as
originally planned. She
was discharged Monday
from Hadassah Hospital
in Jerusalem where she
was treated for an intes-
tinal infection and is now
convalescing.

Writers Seek UN Conscience

A group of distin-
guished writers and ar-
tists, including 1976
Nobel Laureate Saul Bel-
low, have written letters
to major newspapers
throughout the United
States expressing the
hope that the current
session of the United Na-
tions General Assembly
"will not re-enact the
macabre tragedy of last
year's session."
The letter, which ap-
peared in the Wednesday
editions of the Detroit
News, said the writers
were referring specifi-
cally to the "infamous"
_UN resolution "smearing

Zionism as racism."
The writers traced the
history of the UN, which
they said was formed to
combat the venom created
by Hitler. They called on
the Western nations "to
prevent the re-enactment
of last year's action."

The letter was signed
by Edward Albee, Cleve-
land Amory, Bellow, Col-
leen Dewhurst, Julie
Harris, Norman Mailer,
Bernard Malamud,
Louise Nevelson, Leon-
tyne Price, Robert Raus-
chenberg, Beverly Sills,
Raphael Soyer and John
Updike.

Israel Will Get Some Arms
Approved by President Ford

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
U.S. Deputy Secretary of
Defense William Cle-
_ments confirmed four of
the items on Israel's
military purchase list ap-
proved by President
Ford.
Two of the items that
Israel will receive are al-
ready in use by Israel's
armed forces — the M-60
heavy tank and 155 mm
Howitzers. The new items
are air-fuel cluster
bombs, sometimes refer-
red to as concussion
bombs, and infra-red sen-
sor systems for night
fighting, known as FLIR.
He said Israel would
get delivery of the re-
quested items in due time
but reiterated that some
weapons will take up to
three years for delivery.
He also told newsmen
that he saw no reason why
a mutually advantageous
--zAment for the co-

--

production of parts for the
new American F-16 jet
fighter in Israel could not
be reached.
Clements reportedly
had discussed that mat-
ter at a meeting with
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
but apparently no ag-
reements were reached.

Booth Newspapers
Sell to Newhouse

The Booth family,
major stockholders in
Booth Newspapers, Inc.,
has urged its stockhol-
ders to sell the company
to Samuel I. Newhouse,
president of Newhouse
Newspapers, for $47 a
share.
The family will realize a
profit of $18 million more
than a similar offer from
the Times Mirror Co. who
also was urging the Booth
family to sell. The family
controls 34 percent of the
company's stock.

Canada Will Reveal Boycott Collaborators

.

OTTAWA (JTA) — Sec-
retary of State for Exter-
nal Affairs, Donald
Jamieson, speaking in the
House of Commons, said
that the Canadian gov-
ernment will make public
the names of any Cana-
dian companies comply-
ing with the Arab boycott
of Israel and will deny fi-
nancial and other support
to such companies.
Jamieson explained
that companies comply-
ing with the boycott will
be deprived of such help
as obtaining government
financing or market in-
formation.
He added that such a
refusal of government
support would be a very
serious handicap and an
effective deterrent to
cooperation with dis-
criminatory provisions of
an international boycott,
but "despite sanctions by
the Canadian govern-
ment, certain firms may
nonetheless agree to
boycott clauses for par-
ticular projects. All
Canadian firms that ac-
cept boycott clauses will
be required to report all
instances of their comply-
ing with boycott provi-
sions. Information ob-
tained from such reports
will be made available to
the public."
Jamieson also remarked
that "the government rec-
ognizes that Arab coun-
tries consider their
boycott of Israel to be a
legitimate economic
weapon in view of the con-
tinuing state of war bet-
ween Arab countries and
Israel. Canada, however,
seeks to improve its rela-
tions and to develop its
trade in peaceful goods
with all nations."
Meanwhile, in the
Township of North
Bergen (N.J.) has adopted
a resolution instructing
the township's purchas-
ing agent to limit his deal-
ings to firms which do
not comply with the Arab
boycott against Israel
and urging other
municipalities to adopt
the same restriction.
In New York, the recent
partial disclosure by the
Department of Commerce
of American firms who
have received Arab
boycott requests was cal-
led "inadequate" by Dr.
Joseph P. Sternstein,
president of the 120,000
member Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, who reit-
erated his demand for the
complete and unrestricted
publication of the list of all
companies which have
complied with the Arab
boycott "past and pre-
sent."
In Washington, Sen.
Adlai E. Stevenson, D-Ill.,
