THREE-DAY ZOA CONV^TION CLOSES; FRISdH ELECTED J\IEW PRESIDENT; AUTONOMY URGED • NEW YORK, (JTA) — The three-day 52n<J annual convention of the Zionist Organization of America concluded here this weeii, i following the election of Daniel Frlsch as president and the adop¬ tion of a resolution insisting upon the administrative autonomy of the American Zionist movemeht in its relationship with the Jewish Agency executive. The 2,000 delegates at the parley also adopted a resolution referring to the Incoming administration for study of the Rlfkind report which recommends basic structural changes In the World Zionist Organization. The resolution on autonomy, which expressed approval of the resignations of Drs. Abba Hillel Silver and Emanuel Neumann from the Agency executive over the issue, stated "that it Is in the interest of the World Zionist Moyeinent and of Israel that the • Influence of the Zionist Organi¬ zation of America in all fund- raising activities and Institutions •in the United States .shall be pre¬ served and its representation on the governing bodies of Ameri¬ can Zionist funds shall be un¬ impaired." It also demanded "thai the administrative autono¬ my heretofore enjoyed by Ameri¬ can Zionist bodies within the frameworit of the World Zionist Movement and its constitutional provisions, shall be vigorously asserted and fully preserved and safeguarded in the future." In his speech of acceptance of the presidency of the organliia- tion, Mr. Frlsch placed special emphasis on the United Jewish Appeal, d^laring that "heroic, Willing self-sacrificing Yishuv" will not tje in a position to con¬ tinue Its open-door policy, "un¬ less we provide the means." The time has passed "when we could afford to Indulge in mere sym¬ pathetic lip service of contribu¬ tions to gene>al funds, however irjiportant. This, is the hour of deeds and more deeds, and we shall accomplish Ihpp . not in anonymity, but in our own name, ia tiie name of the Z.O.A., as well."

For thli* reason, the Coonoll of ' Jewish Women urgently requests its mem¬ .bers and frfends to send stamps In at on^e for count¬ ing. Failure to do this may moan loss Of revenue to carry on Council's good work. Send Htumpa to Mni. Theodore Slm^ son, 405 N. Nelson Rd. ed that "Zionism today is as ne¬ cessary as It was In 1897. "Only with a strong Zionist movement, he continued, "can Israel expect to receive immigrants who -will continue the noble traditions of the Blluyim of Hedera, Dagania, Ein Harod and Ein Hashofet. and keep alive the pioneer spirit." The Ambassador pointed out that there is still a great ne¬ cessity for such pioneers to turn the deserts of the Negev into flourishing areas, to restore the fertility of Galilee, which sus¬ tained several million people in- the old days, and to make the best of Israel's opportunities on the seas and liv the'alr. "Israel is the only country in Asia with direct outlets to both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans," he said, ".Her place on the cross¬ roads of the world's communica¬ tions njakes her one of the most Important air traffic aenters. Here lies one of the, greatest tasks that anj) ZIortist organiza¬ tion and your distinguished or¬ ganization in particular Is called upon to perform: to assist Israel in realizing' these great oppor¬ tunities. Israel nee(,ls not only American money, American 'know-how,' but t(lso pioneers from this country, who should come to settle in Israel and join us in the building of our new State. Whye- the State of Israel will remain the resppnsibility of its citizet)s, and its citizens a- lone," he stressed, "Ule Zionist movement must continue to be the property of the Zionists everywhere." Dr. Silver, outlining the future function of the Z.OjV. in relation to the state of Israel, asserted that "it Is essential to sustain the long-range Interest of Ameri¬ can Jewry in the economic needs of Israel to Insure that in the coming years, when the Israeli honeymoon Is over, the needs of Israel will not be pushed aside." He added that "now is the time to rpake every Z.O.A member a shareholder, an Invejitor—large oj: small—in Israel."

Asking" for the assistance of those who will be .solicited, Mf. Yassenoff emphasized the need for all-out response to the drive appeal. "Jews in Europe aren't, starving. Cyprus has been empti¬ ed, but every week thousands of Jews are entering Israel. They are living in reception centers on austerity diets. The state of Israel is frantically throwing up housing, erecting medical facili¬ ties, training centers, hornes for the orphaned and aged." "We all know that the finan¬ cial burdens of the state are tre¬ mendous. We have to help now. Millions .upon mlUlons of dollars are neetled, because although the Slate Is established it cannot stand the tremendous financial burden indefinitely. It must build roads,, buy land, develop the resources so that the. refu¬ gees who still keep pouring in' fiom DP camps, from Eastern Kurope and Northern Africa can exist The flow of immigration cannot and must not be stopped. It ma.v well be If we don't give now." Upon the response of those u ho have yet to be .solicited wtll depend the success of this year's campaign, according to the Unit¬ ed Jewi.sh Fund drive chairman.
