African Chieftains Friendly To Israel 'THE PRICE WE PAY WS REPORT ON CIVIL RIGHTS COST Federal civil rights legislation gives Southern states a chance to avoid the ruinous cost that defi¬ ance has brought in the past, ac¬ cording to a report, "The Price We Pay," published this week. The report, prepared by the Anti- Defamation League of B'nai B'rith and the Southern Regional Council, documents the vast cost incurred by the South's resistance to equal opportunity. It itemizes the price for discrimination in the economy of Southern communities, employ¬ ment, legal procedures, education, culture and tourism. Chronicling The News Editorial 2 Real Estate 4 Teen Scene 5 Society 6, 7 Shopping Guide 8 Synagogues 8 Sports 9, 10 JERUSALEM (JTA)—Thfe possi¬ bility that the Arab states might use the current summit conference of African heads of state, meeting in Cairo, as a sounding board against Israel was discounted here this week by Bediako Poku, Ghana's Ambassador to Israel. In a statement to The Jerusalem Post, the Ambassador said that "uneasiness" over such a possi¬ bility fails to take into account "the tremendous amount of good will existing in many parts of Af¬ rica toward Israel." Most African leaders, Poku declared, are for peace. Reports that they might be swung toward an anti-Israel move, he said, "give the erroneous impression that the African lead¬ ers may lack the stamina and the sagacity to make independent de¬ cisions." THE GHANAIAN Ambassador's statement was seen here as con¬ firmed by dispatches from Cairo, reporting that Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, who has en¬ gineered anti-Israel resolutions at most conferences of Africans and Asians, stated flatly that he does not intend to offer such a resolu¬ tion at this time. In his Cairo address, the Egyp¬ tian ruler told the conference, at¬ tended by the heads of nearly all of the 34 member states from Af¬ rica; "For us Israel is a problem that is part of an imperialist con¬ spiracy to loot a land in what the imperialists call 'settling.' As a result, many Arabs were uprooted from their homes and now are re¬ fugees outside their own land." HE SAID this was part of a problem which the Arabs shared with Africans, but, he added: "We do i..-T'need resolutions from this conference, and we have none in our briefcases to submit. All we ask is that you devote deep scrut- "liny to this problem and give it I careful study. Then we are sure lyou will understand our position." It was believed that Nasser had decided to avoid seeking an anti- Israel resolution which might have faced defeat from African nations with which Israel has developed aid and trade relations. Israel is conducting technical aid programs in more than 20 African countries and helping to educate many Afri¬ can doctors and other professionals and specialists. Nasser Rejects Plan To Replace Germans WASHINGTON (JTA) - Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev has of¬ fered to President Nasser a plan for replacing the West German scientists now at work in Egypt on mass destruction weapons and rockets aimed at Israel with Rus¬ sian experts, and the offer has been turned down, according to reports reaching here from both Cairo and Bonn. This was learned from official sources which revealed also that Nasser is now seeking official state invitations to Bonn and Paris to offset the successful visits of Israel Prime Minister Levi Eshkol to Washington and Paris. It was reported that Nasser ex¬ pressed preference for retaining German technicians and purchas¬ ing components for his weapons development projects from West Germany—although this costs him hard currency. Russian technicians would have been available on long range, easy terms, payable in Egyptian currency, according to reports on hand here. These facts began emerging here and in Bonn after Egyptian officials commented with great approval on the rejection by the Republican National Convention of a platform provision offered by Sen. Kenneth B. Keating, of New York. Sen. (continued on paga 4) C.Y.M.

Funds for this program are provided by the UJFC. Telling its story through news items and editorials selected from a large range of publications, the report includes the following as reasons why the South can no longer afford discrimination: A failure, in recent years, in some sections of the South, to at¬ tract any large amount of new industry. Young, educated Southerners leaving the area rather than "put up with all this racial strife." The "staggering" cost to cities, counties and states for policing "emergency" situations and for litigation. A loss of, and inability to attract faculty and students to Southern universities. A loss of convention and tourist business. "The Price We Pay" is available from the Anti-Defamation League, 315 Lexington Ave., New York.
