what proposals the U.S.
might offer at Camp David
to bridge the gaps between
Israel and Egypt. He dis-
closed that the issues on the
agenda would include five
unresolved treaty issues:
the "review clause" (Arti-
cle IV); the "priority of obli:
gations clause" (Article VI.
paragraph 5); the "linkage"
clause (Article VI, para-
graph 2)' and the "target
date" letter dealing with the
establishment of autonomy
on the West Bank and. Gaza
Strip and the exchange of
ambassadors between Is-
rael and Egypt. The Egyp-
tians have insisted that au-
tonomy must be im-
plemented, at least in Gaza,
before envoys can be ex-
changed.
At the United Nations,
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim declared that

"the Mideast problem could
be solved only on a com-
prehensive basis with par-
ticipation of all parties con-
cerned in the negotiating
process."
Waldheim, warning that
"we are faced with a very
serious situation" in the
Mideast, said that "what-
ever happened with
the bilateral approach," a
comprehensive Mideast set-
tlement will be reached only
through the participation of
all the parties, including
the two co-chairmen of the
Geneva peace conference,
the United States and the
Soviet Union.
The Secretary General
also declared that "the
Palestinian issue" remains
"a key issue" in any future
settlement in the Mideast.
Waldheim contplained
that members ' of the
United Nations do not
turn to the organization
for help in solving their
conflicts. When asked
later by a reporter to
comment on the fact that
Israel, for instance, does
not seek the help of the
United Nations because it
considers the General

Assembly biased against
it, Waldheim replied that
he cannot see how the
Assembly could be "im-
partial" toward Israel
because the Assembly
deals with "occupied ter-
ritories. The West Bank,
the Gaza, all these are
occupied territories."
The issue was further
pursued by another reporter
who noted that the Mideast
conflict is not only about
occupied territories and
asked Waldheim if he does
not see a biased treatment
of Israel by such General
Assembly resolutions as the
one that equated Zionism
with racism. Waldheim re-
fused comment on this ques-
tion.
Sen. Frank Church (D-
Idaho) called for a peaCe pol-
icy in the Middle East based
on a strategy that rewards
those nations who work to
construct, complete and
enlarge peace.
Church, who is the new
chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, spoke at the 71st
annual dinner of Bnai
Zion, at which he re-
ceived Bnai Zion's

"

"

American-Israel Friend-
ship Medal from Paul
Safro, Bnai Zion
president.
Church called on the
United States and its allies
to be "prepared to invest
generously in the further-
ance of peace."
Yigal Allon, former De-
puty Premier of Israel, told
the annual convention of
the Labor Zionist Alliance
meeting in New York that
the "temptation for Egypt
get back the Sinai is so gre
that if the United State
government does not create
unobtainable expectations
in Cairo for greater conces-
sions from Israel, a peace
treaty may be signed."•
The weekend convention
ended with the election of
Prof. Allen PollaCk, 40, a
member of the World
Zionist Organization
Executive, as president.
In Jerusalem, at the
World Assembly of Jewish
War Veterans, U.S. JWV
commander Nathan M.
Goldberg called for the U.S.
to serve as `!an honest
broker"- in the negotiations
between Egypt/and Israel.

NEW' YORK — The Na- that some contain crude;

The writers repeat the
Jewry called for a State De-
partment investigation of anti-Semitic canards long
what appears to be an or- associated with Czarist pog-
chestrated letter-writing roms. "Zionists and their
campaign designed to in- supporters" are referred ,to
timidate American citizens, as "degenerates," "scoun-
some of whom have met drels," "idiots" and "misan-
with Soviet Jewish ac- thropes." The writers also
warn that the "Zionist mil-
tivists.

Chairman Eugene Gold, a cruit less prosperous Jews

mostly Jews, who recently control them by throwing

Gold says, "The racist
Jews in the USSR have re-
ceived letters ostensibly allegations are unworthy
written 'by Soviet citizens, of comment" and
repudiating their concern charged that they "only
for Soviet Jews. Gold noted serve to create tensions
between Jews and non-
Jews in both the United
States and the Soviet
Union."
Gold acknowledges that
Americans have, for years,

Union. "But our campaign
was never directed at pri-
vate individuals and was
-not orchestrated by the gov:
ernment. The letters that
we have seen sound alike
and contain essentially the
same information. If they
are part of a thinly-veiled
effort to squelch the concern
of our citizens in this coun-
try, the effort is not succeed-
ing.

"We request the United
States government to pro-
test to the Soviet govern-
ment about this outlandish
campaign. It threatens to
disrupt relations between
the countries."
Nearly all of the letters
contain references to a State
Department official who the
Soviets maintain is a former
Nazi accomplice involved in

A

the murder of 17,000 Jews
in Rovna between Novem-
ber 7 and 9, 1941.
The State Department,
however, has informed
him that its investigation
"found no evidence
whatsoever to support
the allegations and
charges against you" and
that "the -department
retffirms the confidence
in your loyalty and char-
acter."
In Washington, about 300
students from a score of
universities demonstrated
support for Soviet Jewry at
the State Department, in
the halls of Congress and in
front of the Soviet Embassy
last week.
The program was the
third such annual effort
sponsored and coordinated
by the Soviet Jewry com-
4
mittee of Brandeis Univer-
sity's Hillel Foundation.
Meanwhile, the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet
Jewry demonstrated
