IN ACCEPTING Mr. Eban's resignation. Prime Minister David Ben-Gurlon wrote: "You have been able to intensify the links between America and Israei by emphasizing the spiritual values ond political interests common to them both. For each of our countries is attached to the di¬ vinely conceived values of humon freedom and to the democrotlc system based on the concept ot 'government of the people, by the people, for the people.' " Reviewing Ambossodor Eban's work at the United Nations, the Prime Minister referred to the "eager suspense with which you have been heard In the Inter¬ national forum as a result of your strong peraonallty and arresting speech."

AARON ZACKS Co-Chairman, Women's Division, UJF When people ask me what I think ot Israel—my reply Is al¬ ways, "It's exciting." In all of our travels in many countries, never have we seen a people who are so busy with building a new world. They work with purpose ond urgency for o new tomorrow—not for themselves, but for their chil¬ dren. Everyone—Sabra and new¬ comer alike.

This little country is the only country In the world with no quoto. Whoever comes Is wel¬ comed, given immediate citizen¬ ship ond o new start with the barest of necessities but a moxl- mum of love and dignity. Many of the newcomers are Intellectuols with profound scientific and cul¬ tural backgrounds who are al¬ ready making tremendous contri¬ butions to the unbelievable prog¬ ress which has been made in Israel: In the fields of education. Industry, agriculture, sciences and arts. Only a dedicated and de¬ termined people under able lead¬ ership could have achieved such results in so short a time. ISRAEL HAS many long range plans with which she hopes to achieve economic Independence. Foreign capitol Is being encour¬ aged with a new and liberal pol- Abba EInui ed as our representative abroad. I am certain that the strength which has sustained you in your foreign service will be with you In even greater measure at home." IN A LETTER to the Prime Minister (released in Jeruaolem today) Mr. Eban recalled conver¬ sations tn Jeruaalem In which he had discussed the prospect of "en¬ tering the public life of the coun¬ try in the framework of Its par¬ liamentary Inatitutlonat" He expreaaed hia ''deep. appre¬ ciation of the encburaKenient'' which .the Prime ,,.jai)ni'8te[r .. aii,^ FbriIgn"SIlnl8ter 'Oflda ]iiltelr 'lia^, given him in hia iupli^on: to en¬ ter tliia new sphere of activity.

In Israel one sees new Israeli families gradually leaving their slum-like temporary houses and moving into attractive new apart¬ ment buildings; They are small apartments, only three rooma, but they are adequate and livable.
