Golda Meets President Carter,.
Affirms U.S.-Israel Friendship

Former Israeli Premier
Golda Meir said after a 45-
minute meeting with Presi-
dent Carter at the White
House Tuesday that despite
their differences Israel and
the United States continue
to be "very friendly govern-
ments." She told reporters
that "Israel is always con-
scious of the fact that we
don't have a better friend
than the U.S." And, there-
fore, a misunderstanding, a
disagreement hurts more."
Mrs. Meir visited the White
House at the invitation of
the President.
Mrs. Meir stressed that
she was here as a private
person, not as a repiesenta-
tive of the Israeli govern-
ment and said that it would
be improper for her to dis-
close what the President
said at their meeting, but
she acknowledged that the
subject of their conversa-
tion was the Middle East.
She praised the President as
"very gracious, very kind,
he listened to What I had to
say." She said she had no
doubts about his "good
intentions," but added,
"people with the best
intentions can make
The 79-year-old former
Israeli leader was vehement
in proclaiming Israel's
unwavering opposition to a
Palestinian homeland or
state, claiming that such
entity would be "a threat to
Israel's existence and "is
not necessary for the
Palestinians." •

During her visit, Mrs.
Meir visited Sen. Hubert
Humphrey to extend good
wishes and gratitude.
In New York, a record
amount of $15.1-million in
advance Israel Bond com-
mitments for 1978 was
obtained at a national din-
ner in honor of Golda Meir
under the auspices of the
Israel Prime Minister's
Club, which she founded
when she occupied that
The dinner was followed
by a special pre-opening
performance of "Golda,"
the play about Mrs. Meir's
life, with the Israeli leader
and approximately 1,000
Israel Bond subscribers in
attendance. Purchases of
Israel Bonds at the dinner
ranged from $500,000 to
$25,000. Anne Bancroft has
the title role in the play.
Mrs. Meir, who is here on a
private visit, was heavily
guarded by police and secu - -
rity men, particularly at the
Mrs. Meir declared that
"we have one purpose and
that is the continuity of the
Jewish people and we have
never wavered in our belief
that we would be free in our
own homeland." In an
obvious reference to recent
discussions with the United
States, she said that "we
know better what is good for
Is" and no one could make
Israel's freedom "depend-
ent on the wishes of Ara=
fat." She added, "Even if
the PLO recognizes us, ws,,!
still won't be safe."

JNF to Plant Childrens Forest

NEW YORK—Under the
patronage of President Eph-
raim Katzir of Israel and of
Prime Minister Menahem
Begin, the Jewish National
Fund is launching a vast
"Jewish Children's Forest"
in celebration of the forth-
coming 30th anniversary of
Israel's independence next
The forest will be planted
by the JNF on an area of
7,000 dunams of land at

Goren in western Galilee,
some 26 kilometers east of
The forest will not only
help to reclaim and beautify
this hitherto neglected Gali-
lee region; but will serve as
a joint effort of Israeli and
American Jewish students
to commemorate Jewish
children who perished in the
Holocaust and, more
recently, at the hands of
Arab terrorists at Ma'alot.'
