TheWorld'sWeek CompIUd from JTA fUporh IN LONDON, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser said that his armed forces were preparing to "wash out the defeat in Palestine in 1948," according to reports re¬ ceived from Cairo.

IN NEW YORK, a Bronx rabbi called upon New York police to take more vigorous action against neighlxirhood vandals who have repeatedly broken the stained glass win¬ dows of Anshei Emeth Synagogue. Rabbi Shimon Morchud- owltz, spiritual leader of the congregation, said the syna¬ gogue has had to replace six sets of windows in the past two years. The windows were last broken July 27. IN ALBANY, N.Y., New York State Education Com¬ missioner James E. Allen, Jr., sustaiined a complaint by nine parents that usq of the fourth stanza of "America" as part of a devotional exercise in public schools was a violation of the Supreme Court bans on religious activities in such schools. IN JERUSALEM, Israel's Parliament defeated, in one of its final acts before recessing for 10 weeks, a Liberal party bill to reduce the service of women in the armed forces from 24 months to 18 months. The Knesset acted after Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, speaking In his capacity as Defense Minister, said that the General Staff was study¬ ing the question. He promised a report on the subject at the beginning of the Knesset's wdnter session. The bill was beaten 36 to 30. IN LONDON, the Counsellor at the West German Em¬ bassy in London reaffirmed his government's determina¬ tion "to do everything in its power to prevent a revival of National Socialist ideas" Ih West Germany. The assur¬ ance was given in a letter from Dr. R. Thlerfelder to the World Jewish Congress department of International Af¬ fairs in London. IN SAN FRANCISCO, all Jewish organizations were urged to give full support to the principles of non-discrimi¬ nation and to "a peaceful and orderly, solution of the Negro struggle for full equality in the area." y IN JEBUSAXiBM, the issue of the validity in Israel of non-Orthodox marriages and divorces was raised again during a visit of a delegation of the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the United States and Canada, made for the stated purpose of arousing the Israeli public to the "men¬ ace" of the Conservative synagogue movement In tsrael.

Pact Does Not Help Security Of Israel JERUSALEM (JTA) — Mrs, Golda Meir, Israel's Foreign Minister, warned In Parliament this week that, while the three-power nuclear test ban might lead to additional Great Power steps to safeguard the peace of the world and of the Mid¬ dle East, it had not ih Itself eased any of the threats to Israel's security. She made the statement during debate on proposals sub¬ mitted by the Communist and Ma- pam parties of a Knesset debate on a Soviet proposal for an atom- tree zone in the Mediterranean area and tor a ban on all arms shipments to the Middle East. Both motions were overwhelmingly rejected. SHE DECLARED that, when the Govemment rejected earlier pro¬ posals in the Knesset tor support ot a Soviet proposal for an atom- free Mediterranean zone, this was done in order not to divert attention from the real threat to Israel's security. In that regard, she assert¬ ed, the nuclear test ban changed nothing and, she added, the pro¬ posal to support such a nuclear- free zone would be meaningless, creating illusions Which ultimately would be dangerous to Israel.

Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Is Formally Signed By Israel WASHINGTON (JTA) - An Is¬ raeli delegation led by Charge d'- Affaires Mordechai Gazit formally adhered this week to the Anglo- American Soviet nuclear test-ban treaty at a State Department cere¬ mony. AFFIXING the formal signature of Israel at ceremonies similar to others held recently in London and Moscow, Gazit said that was Israel's hope that the treaty would lead to an improvement in the international atmosphere, and serve as n positive step toward relaxation of tensions. He said he hoped it would be fol¬ lowed by further measures for at¬ tainment ot complete general dis¬ armament. He voiced Israel's be¬ lief that lessening of tension be¬ tween the Big Powers would have a salutary effect on the Middle East region. PHILLIPS TALBOT, Assistant Secretary of State tor Near East Affairs, said he was pleased with Israel's adherence to the treaty, and pointed out that the desire for peace constituted a common bond between Israel and the United States. She attacked the proposal tor de¬ bate on a total ban on arms ship¬ ments to the area with the asser¬ tion that there was a sharp distinc¬ tion between supplying arms to ag¬ gressors and to defenders. The Gov¬ emment, she added, could not ac¬ cept the leftist version of neutrals ism, and she called tor outright stoppage of delivery ot weapons to the Arab countries, "who proclaim day and night their intent to de¬ stroy Israel." PRIME MINISTER Levi Eshkol also spoke on the issues raised by the nuclear test ban agreement. The Prime Minister reaffirmed that Israel backed all efforts tor world disarmament, including dis¬ armament by Israel and the Arab countries, and cessation ot arms deliveries, provided there was re¬ ciprocal and international super¬ vision of such cessation and dis-. , armament. UNITED SYNAGOGUES JOIN AUG. 28 MARCH NEW YORK (JTA)—The United Synagogue of America, the asso¬ ciation of Conservative congrega¬ tions in the United States and Canada, will join the Aug 28 march on Washington in support of the civil rights legislation pro¬ posed to Congress by President Kennedy.

GEORGE FAISLEN, president ot the United Synagogue, who at¬ tended the recent White conference ot religious leaders, announced the organization's decision to partici¬ pate. He said that the organization had supported a broad civil rights program for many years "ahd we are pleased that this year the full weight ot the Federal Administra¬ tion has been thrown into the cam¬ paign. We welcome the leadership displayed by President Kennedy, and we join in the march on Wash¬ ington in order to support him.''

These closed-ward patients needed the warm friendship and understanding that your members showed them, the thing most re¬ quired tor theh- resocialization. The staff ia grateful tor your coopera¬ tion and appreciate your services."
