Goldsmith was an active vol¬ unteer for many years in the Schonthal Center and was presl- lent of the Center from 1948-49 He Is a past president of Temple Tifereth Israel and was president ¦>t the Jewish Center from 1952-54. He is a member of the board of governors of the midwest section Df the Jewish Welfare Board and chairman of the personnel com¬ mittee of this group. He Is a past chairman of the southeast district of the Boy Scouts of America and Is current¬ ly the scouting representative for The Jewish Center. Goldsmith has served on many committees of the United Community Council. He was vice-president of Jewish Family Service from 19E9-61. The other elected officers In¬ cluded: Dr. Ivan Gilbert, vice- president, Mrs. Harry Roth, sec¬ retary, and Herman M. Katz, treasurer. years, represented the Arab Ref¬ ugee Office before this Commit¬ tee. JVIr. Comay on behalf of Israel, told the Committee that "who¬ ever" appeared before the group on behalf of the refugees, should be directed to stick to the refugee subject and not make political speeches. Mr. Shukairy objected to limitation of the refugee spokes¬ man. However, the vice-clvair- mants ruling remained in effect and the meeting was adjourned until the next morning. Earlier In the session, Dr. John H. Davis, director of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, gave a report to the Committee which dealt almost entirely with UN- RWA's work at special education¬ al institutions for Arab refugee youth and with the agency's budg¬ etary problems. In regard to the geneml situa¬ tion facing the refugees. Dr. Davis noted that "during a period of 13 years, so little progress has been made toward a solution." He pointed out that "the ma.'or re¬ sponsibility" for a general solu¬ tion of the refugee problem rests with the Palestine Conciliation Commission rather than with UNRWA. However, he reiterated at an¬ other point In his speech, the contention he expressed in his annual report two months ago that "the lot of most refugees continues to be one of hardship, and their insistence on the imple¬ mentation of Paragraph U of United Nations Resolution 194 oontlnues unabated." The clause to which Dr. Davis referred Is In a 1948 Assembly resolution which is constantly be¬ ing cited by the Arab delegations here when they insist that the refugdes be "repatriated" or com¬ pensated by Israel, Ignoring other alternatives like resettlement or reintegration of the refugees men¬ tioned in the very same resolu¬ tion. ¦ At a press conference after the Oommittee meeting, Doctor Davis conceded, for the first time In UNRWA history that between 90,000 and 100,000 refugees who died, are still on the-UNRWA ra¬ tion rolls in Jordan alone. He was asked whether he oould make an "educated estimate" as to the number of unreported deaths on his agency's relief rolls, and he replied: "I don't actually know. There is considerable Inaccuracy. The basic ration rolls are still the same as they were when UNRWA started (in 1950). We have made a constant effort to rdctify the rolls and have met with only very limited success. There is among the refugees a relucteuice to re¬ port deaths. In Jordan, UNRWA has refused to place newborn children on the ration rolls unless the deaths were reported. As a result, while 30,000 children were added to our register of refugee population, only 4500 of these children were added to the ration rolls."
