WSU President Optimistic About Lasting Mideast Peace

President Jimmy Carter.
Monday's meeting was
sponsored by the Jewish
National Fund Council of
Metropolitan Detroit, and
Carmi M. Slomovitz,
president of the JNF Coun-
cil, presided.
In his opening state-
ments, Slomovitz cited
the "feeling of relief when
we heard the words 'no
more wars' uttered.
"But," said Slomovitz,
"the treaty means a tre-
mendous increase in the

Addressing a communal
celebration of the first an-
niversary of the signing of
the Israeli-Egyptian peace
treaty Monday evening in
the Zionist Cultural Center,
Dr. Thomas N. Bonner,
president of Wayne State
University, expressed op-
timism about prospectg for a
lasting peace between the
two countries.
Dr. Bonner was witness to
the signing of the peace
treaty in Washington last
year at the invitation of

already heavy work-load
carried by JNF. We must,
in the short span of three
years, build 20 settle-
ments in the Negev for
those persons being
transferred from the
Sinai. In fact," he said,
"now, at the end of this
first year of the peace
treaty, eight of those set-
tlements are being com-
pleted." In any case, land
must be prepared, roads
built, recreation areas es-
tablished and comforta-

ble surroundings created
for the new settlers.
Slomovitz revealed that
"the Keren Kayemet has
adopted a budget of $100
million and has asked
America to raise $8.5 mil-
lion of it. Detroit is commit-
ted to raising $420,000 for
this year.
One of the problems in the
Galilee, according to
Slomovitz, is the minority of
only 32 percent - Jews.
"Therefore, we must pre-
pare the area to be inha-
bited by more of our peopl -
At present, the JNF is in ti..
process of building 30 look-
out posts which eventually
will become settlements.
Thirty-five existing settle-
ments are now being ex-
panded and modernized,
and we are building 16 new
settlements. Fifty miles of
new roads are currently
being built, and 7,500 acres
of land are being reclaimed.
All in all, the JNF is in-
volved in more than 500
different locations through-
out Israel."
Dr. Bonner, who is an
author and historian noted
that "the visitor (to Israel)
for the first time gets the
sense and the feel of history,
a nation that stands at the
convergence of history, reli-
gion, world politics and so-
cial change. There is noth-
ing like it in the world,"
Bonner declared.
Dr. Bonner has visited
Israel twice, and has es-
tablished exchange
agreements for Wayne
State University with Is-
rael's Hebrew University
and Egypt's American
University, among
others.
Asked about the quality
of higher education in IA-
rael, Dr. Bonner stated that
the "scientific labs and
medicine are first class and
deserve world reputation;
that the two national uni-
versities — the Technion in
Haifa and the Hebrew Uni-
versity in Jerusalem — are
rooted in the European uni-
versity tradition with em-
phasis on scholarship and
research. In comparison,
just as the University of
Michigan is ahead, so are
the Israeli universities
ahead in scholarship."
As for Israel in general,
WSU's president said that
"several thousand years of
history have made this the
most remarkable archeolog-
ical site in the world."
