"Can anyone in thla congregation," he asked, "truthfully say that he has no enemies in the world?" An. old man arose and aaid, I have no enemies." The Rabbl looked at him and declared, "It's incredible for any man to say that. How old are ^ou?" "104!" was the reply. "And do you honeatly mean to aay," the Rabbl peraiated, "you haven't an enpmy In the world?" "That's right!" the oldster ada¬ mantly rcjolndered, "I out-lived them all!" * « « Mrs. Danny Kayo (Sylvia Fine), an accomplished aong-writi'r, is penning the the worda for th(r theme song of the new UN flicker "The Moon Is Blue'.' . . . • • • ThU In Ann*rica: Rabbi David P, Prin(;c. of Congregation Sona of Israel, Ossining, N, Y., wns born in Pohind.

The court acted on a caae which Involved an agreement re¬ stricting non-whitca from occupy¬ ing property.

Mr. Dulles aaid In this apeech that "while awaiting the formal creation of a aecurtty association, the uT^B. can usefully help streng¬ then the inter-related defense of those countries which want atrcngth, not aa agalnat each other or the Weat, but to resist a com¬ mon threat to all free nations." The Department in now decid¬ ing on how beat to Implement the formula HUpplled by Mr. Dulles in hia apeech. It haa definitely been decided that assurances wilt be required that all arms muat b« uaed defensively, De¬ partment offleiais said. (The Associated Press reported from Washington that in order to qualify for gift American weapons, the Middle East nations muat sign pledgea they wlll back the Weatern countriea In the East-West strug¬ gle. They must agree to accept a amall American military mission which will teach the local armed forcea how to use American weap¬ ons and provide adequate publicity for the operation.) According to officials in the De¬ partment, a press report that the "Xrab' states would be given priority over Isroei in arms aid has no basis in fact. What the actual pro¬ gram wlll look like when it ia ready, it was said, is "anybody's gueas." No details of plans to strengthen the Near East against Communism have yet been worked out, il was einphasiEed. Tlie two eountries with which Stute Department arms arrange- ment.s are at the most advanced -stHgc are Syria and Egypt.
