The report recommends that the State Department "give con sideration to systematizing and Agudath Achim Pre-School Institqte to Have Latest in Equipment, Facilities in New "Home" When the original plans for a new Agudath Achim Synagogue were first brought up, one of the prime topics was the Congrega¬ tion's Educational Pre-school Institute for youngsters.

For one thing, the School will move into new quarters when the Pioneer Memorial edifice Is constructed In Bexley. The latest In modern equipment and facilities will be provided for the youngsters.

Mr. Gil¬ bert donated the school building, located at 1021 Bryden Rd., and Harry Gilbert through his wonderful efforts and continued guidance, has helped swell enrollment of Jew¬ ish youth at the Instilute. Max and Harry Silberstein, sons of the late beloved Fred Sllbersteln (one of Agudath Achim's pioneer founders), have contributed much to the school's maintenance, including installa¬ tion of heat units, water foun¬ tains, garage, etc., and they have subscribed to the new school program in carrying on the Ideals of their religious father.

Improving the gathering of infor¬ mation upon which the decisions are to be made concerning the allocation of resources among the various countries and the var¬ ious progrartis." It urges that U.S. diplomats abroad should be charged with studying the ac tivities of American voluntary agencies In each country, as well as the extent of the ability of each country to meet its social needs through the facilities of its own welfare agencies. Citing Jewish relief agencies as an example, the report points out that the three major Jewish agencies for overseas relief—the Jbint Distribution Committee, the United Palestine Appeal and the United Service for New Americans—have integrated their efforts "through central plan¬ ning and allocation" even after the relaxing of centralized gov¬ ernmental direction are now joined in the United Jewish Ap¬ peal.

"If the UN remains impotent in the face of the undisguised Anglo-Arab plot to liquidate the entire Hebrew population of Pal¬ estine, then it ia tragically - fol¬ lowing the dismal footsteps ot the League of Nations. The Se¬ curity Council has only a few weeks in which to act since it is now definite that a date early this spring has. been set for the massacre of the 800,000 Hebrews in Palestine and the million more residing In Arabian coun¬ tries. "As the record stands, the UN's plan to parlilion Palestine is not only inadequate, but a cruel Jest perpetrated upon the Hebrew pioneers whose farms and vil¬ lages are becoming a shambles. Having virtually set up the Hebrew people as targets for genocide—(tiie murder otai na- tlon)-jthe United Nations now appears to be abandoning them. "After giving the Arabs over $37,000,000 worth of Uniled States war supplies, the De¬ partment of Stale clapped an embargo on the sale arid ship- merit of arms lo the Middle Eastern countries. This embargo seems to ha.ve been designed nol lo prevent 'aggression and strife in the Middle East but to bolster it, for in reality the emijargo is directed only against the He¬ brews of Paleatlne. The Arab States continue to receive large supplies of arms from the i3r(tlsh who in turn receive them from us. Our embargo on the Arabs in ils present form therefore is nothing but a sham. "I am calling upon President Truman to issue an exiecutlve order permitting t^e sale ot arms for defense to the beleagured Hebrews' of Palestine. "Unless the embargo onj de¬ fense arms for the Hebrew'peo¬ ple is raised at once, the/State Department must take upon It¬ self full responsibility for com¬ plicity in the murder of Innocent men, -women and children. J>Jo American citizen can condone such outrageous and wanton conduct by government officials sworn to protect the Interests and traditions of the United States in foreign affairs."
