(JTA) The pros¬ pect of a real solution of tho Isroel-Arob problem was termed "remote" by Wlliiom M. Roun¬ tree, Assistant Secretory of Stote for Near Eastern Affolrs, in a public adddess here. He said, however, that the United States would continue to seek some basis for o more stable arrange¬ ment among the states involved In the controversy. Speaking before the Macon Clvltan Club, Mr. Rountree voic¬ ed hope and confidence that the United States would "be able to continue progress toward oehley- Ing o more stoble peace In the Middle Eost." He sold: "THE TENSION between the Arab states ond Isroel continues to be one of the most complex ond bitter of the disputes in the i areo, casting o cloud over the en¬ tire region. The United States] sincerely hopes for the alleviation | of these tensions, and it has on various occa.slons indicated the form and substance of assistance it would render to a solution. "Although the current situation ond attitudes render remote o flnol solution, we continue, both directly and through the United Notions, to seek some basis for a more stable arrangement among the states Involved." Declaring that, for decodes, there was o growing conflict be¬ tween the Arob states and the increasing Jewish population of Palestine, over the Jewish desire for the establishment of a nat¬ ional homeland," Mr. Rountree said thot when Israel was created "many nations, motivated by the plight of the Jewish people, and by the long association of the race with Palestine, supported this move." HE RELATED that Israel "was Immediately opposed by the Arabs, who also claimed Pales¬ tine, and a brief war resulted. Tho wor wos brought to o con¬ clusion by a series of ormlstlce agreements, but the legocy of on uneasy frontier and hundreda of thousands of Arab refugees now remain." The Arab refugees, he declared, have since 1948 been "a particular concern to the United States." He said the United States provid¬ ed 70 percent of the United Na¬ tions funds used for Arab refu¬ gees, but "the Soviet Union, de¬ spite Its claim for friendship for the Arabs, has made no contribu¬ tion whatsoever. "We continue to demonstrate our Interest In the welfare and In the future status of these people, which we believe ahould be assured through repatrlotlon, or resettlement with proper.com- pensotlon."

IN CITY COUNCIL, a measure waa Introduced for conalderotlon In which the Humane Society ' would be given full responalbllity for catching both licensed ond unlicensed dogs. It hos been eatl¬ mated that there are 50,000 to 55,000 licensed dogs in the city. Under the present setup, the Humane Society only picks up unlicensed dogs. Under the new proposal, it would aiso pick up licensed dogs but return them to their owners. FOR THIS, the city would ap- proprlote $25,00Q o year. Inltiolly, this would go to purchase two more trucks, to go with the one alreody in service. The city now contrlb(ites $5000 a year to the Humane Society. In addition, an ordinance is be¬ ing prepared which would put teeth into the dog low. Under the new wording, dog owners would be responsible regardless of how their anlmala got free. Now, they can get out of being arreated If they prove the escape was made beyond their precau¬ tions. ! « « « THE CITY will appropriate $1,111,327 for Its share of the E.

ABRAMSON, UJF WOMEN'S LEADER, PRESENTS STIRRING CAMPAIGN MESSAGE Statement from Mrs. B. W- Abramson, chairman of the 1959 UJF Women's Division: The Columbus United Jewish Fund Campaign of 1959 will soon engage the octlve interest of our community. As chairmon of the Women's Division it is timely to report to the community and especiolly to the 2500 Jewish wo¬ men who are membera of our Division. The Women's Division assumes responsibility for at least 12.5 per cent of funds raised, ond a major role in interpreting for the com¬ munity the scope of fund activi¬ ties. Thia is the 19th yeor that the efforts of our women have been odded to the compaign, Dur¬ ing those years the quality and the reaults have been proud ac¬ complishments. At o recent meeting of the Steering Committee 35 members attended. Each member woa oo- tlvely engoged in some aspect ot the compaign, and chairing com¬ mitteea compoaed of additional women who hove been plonning for thia years compolgn. Reports from 14 committeea Indicate that Interpretation and solicitation for this year's campoign should con¬ tinue to meet the standards of the past years. A SERIES of fund - raising meetings for women and young matrons will encompass every member of our Dlvilslon. At each of these functions, ot an educa¬ tional meeting held on Morch 4, to which every member was wel¬ comed, and at Morch ond April meetings of our women's organi¬ zations programs will tell the story of the care and planning for the life of Jewry on the local, national and international scenes. Neither now nor at any time can the survival of Judaism be taken for granted. Agencies which receive allocations from the UJF save our precious possession, the human lives of fellow-Jews, and endi'ovor to save, too, those ele¬ ments essential to any survival, the strong, life-giving groupness which we see in Israel, health, welfare, education and a growth of Jewish culture ot home and abroad. EVEN IN the busy planning ot o Women's Dlvlialon we pause to ask ourselves the reasona fpr our efforts. We know that If we deny ourselves aa Jews, or if we deny other Jewa, we and our children live a partial if not total atrophy. We have Inherited the gift of Judaiam. Apathy and disuse of the gift breeds destruction. We and our children, If we are to keep the gift, must earn It over again for ourselves. To earn a right to the inheritance is more Mrs. B. W. Abramson than we can do alone, so in wor¬ ship, in study and also In the United Jewish Fund we humbly join ohr efforts. THROUGH THE Fund we have the Instrument to earn a part of our inheritance by sharing some of our money. All of ua know that we have never been denied by giving our money. Actually we are giving to ouraelves and to our own children. Survival, and a healthy survival of Jews any¬ where, is reflected in the lives of Jews everywhere. The request for money from our women is a proud and dignified opportunity for all of ua to odd on extra dimension of vision to see beyond the inner circle of our everydoy lives. WE KNOW thot oil of you will meet the opportunity to give with your work, your thoughtfulness, with deep feelings and the great¬ est generosity. It ia not too aoon to thank you. For Mrs. Aaron Zacks, co-chairman of the Wo¬ men's Division and for all of the community it Is my privilege to do so. History will record the mld-20th century American Jewish womon OS one of the most fortunote. May we also be remembered aa women who gave blessings to life as well as being the recipients of bless¬ ings. TO HEAD SOCIETY NEW YORK (JTA)—Dr. Ber- trom W. Korn of Philadelphia, an authority in the field of American Jewish history, particularly on the Civil War era, was elected president of the American Jewish Historical Society at Its B7th an¬ nual meeting here.
