COLUMBUS EDITION COLUMBUS EDITION Serving Columbus, Dayton, Central and Southwestern C Vol. 39, No. 41 FRIDAY, OCTOBE^ 13, 1961 '^' ¦ Mrs. Golda Meir Addresses U. N. General Assembly UNITED NATIONS, N. Y., (JTA) — A non-aggression pact was offered to the Arab countries by Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel's Foreign Minister, addressing the United Nations General Assembly. She also proposed that the UN start the job of attaining general and complete disarmament by using the Middle East "as a pilot project for the so¬ lution of the overall problem." The Israel Foreign Minister also offered "regional cooperation" with the neighboring Arab coun¬ tries in development programs, particularly with regard to water resources. She addressed the UN Assemibly not only on Israel-Arab Issues but also on various other major problema facing the current session of the General Assembly. Mrs. Meir's 90-minute speecli was loudly applauded by many delegations, including a number of representatives of the new African and Asian nations. It was an ad¬ dress which was seen as observing Mrs. Meir's own plea for the a- voidance of "bellicose" propa¬ ganda and threatening verbal at- tacks against any and all nations. Ai>ave all, Mrs. Meir pleaded with the General Assembly to re¬ establish and reaffirm universal acceptance of the principle of ne¬ gotiation on all International is¬ sues. "If this Assembly," she said, "will succeed in dedicating it¬ self to the universal and total implementation of the principle of negotiation—then, indeed, It will be a historic Assembly." All Issues, she asserted, includ¬ ing those dividing the Arab States from Isrciei, can be settled by ne¬ gotiation. She expressed Israel's readiness and willingness to ne¬ gotiate with the Arab states on every Issue at dispute between them. Israel's belief, she empha¬ sized, tiiat negotiation "is the only alternative to war." "For our part, we remain ready to negotiate at any time or place, with any Arab leader, and with¬ out prior conditions, In order to settle the differences between us," Mrs: Melr stressed. Saying Israel's delegation would discuss the refugee problem. In detail later, when it arises before the Assembly's Special Political Committee, Mrs, Melr declared: "I would, however, say this—the number of Arabs, who upon the prompting of their leaders, left the area which is Israel today, Is abouSSiequal to the number of Jew¬ ish rerligees who came to Israel from Arab countries. We received these Jewish refugees as our bro¬ thers, took care ot them and re¬ habilitated them. Had the Arab countries acted likewise—the Arab refugee problem would no longer be with us." She asked all member states of the United Nations to enter "a formally binding instrument by which each government would un¬ reservedly pledge itself to imple¬ ment certain basic principles." Then, making the offer of an Arab-Israeli non-aggression pact as a start, she came to the issue of general dnd comiplete disarma¬ ment. However, she stated, the UN must face now "the problem of filling the void." She made it clear I hat Israel would not tolerate the selection ot Mongi Slim, of Tuni¬ sia, the anti-Israeli who is now president of the General Assem¬ bly, as the top executive officer of the United Nations. Avoiding mention of either Mr. SUm or his country by name, she stated that, in Israel's view, the Secretary- General "should not be a national of a country involved in a serious conflict regarding whioh the Sec¬ retary-General is called upon to exercise responsibilities." M r. Slim's country is a mem,l>er of the Arab League. Mrs, Melr concluded her address with a renewed plea for negotia¬ tions as the sole alternative to war, declaring: "Fellow-delegates: If we are convinced that the only result of modern warfare will be the an¬ nihilation of mankind, then we must accept the only decisive les¬ son that is left. This great Or¬ ganization must have the strength to fulfill its supreme aim — the settlement ot conflicts between nations in peace and for peace. For there is one fear we all share —it is the awesome fear for the fate of the earth and of man upon it."

Kahn, Herbert Schlff, members of the United Jewlah Appeal Cabinet, and Mor¬ ris Skllken recently returned from the Emergency United Jewish Ap¬ peal Conference to report on the intense financial crisis facing Is¬ rael in meeting tho costs of the sudden sharply increased immi¬ gration. The sudden rise In the number of immigrants from Europe and North Africa was not predicted when the 1961 budget was set aind toward which communities were meeting their fair share. Ralph Rosenthal, in evaluating the current need for cash, indi¬ cated we must convert our pledges into hard cash, which alone can help the present emergency. At the same time, we must provide an even flow of cash for our local and national agencies so that the day-by-day activities can be car¬ ried on to serve the people in our own communities. At the national emergency con¬ ference, it was pointed out that Israel's doors are opened and will remain open, but the Immigrants cannot be brought there without major financial help of the United Jewish Appeal. Joseph Meyerhoff, general chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, stated that though thous¬ ands of refugees have already been aided by millions of dollars from the Jewish communities, we cannot," lie stated,"stop this aid for thousand of others, who for Arab Youths Sentenced Try .To Cross Border JERUSALEM, (JTA) — Four Arab youths were sentenced this week to prison terms of 15 to 21 months for leaving a restricted area without permission and try¬ ing to cross into the Egyptian-held Gaza Strip.
