Senator Humphrey Has "New Ideas" JERUSALEM, (jTA)—After visiting the capitals ot Egypt, Leb¬ anon, Syria and Jordan—ail of which are the "host" countries where the Arab refugees live—United States Senator Hubert H. Humphrey told a press conference here that he haa "some new Ideas" that may help contribute toward a solution of the Arab refugee problem. One of the principal leaders of the Democratic majority in the American Senate, Senator Humphrey, now on a visit here, has con¬ ferred with the topmost leaders of the Israel Government, including Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, Foreign Minister Golda Meir, and others. Prior to coming here, he conferred in the capitals of the neighboring Arab states with the leaders of the four refugee "host" countries. SENATOR HUMPHREY did not divulge publicly the nature of his "new Ideas," although he may have informed Mr. Ben-Gurion, with whom he had a lengthy con¬ ference recently. The Ben-Gur- lon-Humphrey conference ran far beyond the scheduled time, and the Premier kept the Cabinet waiting for an hour while he fin¬ ished his talk with the American Senator. In general, Mr, Humphrey said that, by comparison with 1957, when he last visited the Middle East, he is "ihore optimistic about peace chances" In the region. Aa to his thinking on the refugee problem, he stated, he will not disclose his ideas until he has reported them to the State De¬ partment upon his return to Washington. AS FAR AS ISRAEL is concern¬ ed. Senator Humphrey noted he has found reason to "marvel" over the vast developments here since 1957. He laid particular stress upon Israel's progress in water development, observing that the time may come when the United States wiil call upon Is¬ rael for technical assistance In the field of water conservation. The Senator was firm on one point—that, whatever solutions are reached in regard to Arab- Israeli disagreements, must be worked out by the Middle Bast [contlnuad on paq* 4) Bernard IVIarx Bernard Marx Captain Of Exodus Will Speak Nov. 8 Bernard Marx, heroic American who aided thousands of homeless.
