HASiI J.V is HalH H wnasnii T*.jiaoj.5.iH Vol. 43, No. 23 FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1965 — 4 SIVAN, 5725 to Arnerlcian Israel Bonds Vital, Mrs. Robbins Says "Israel is engaged in a constant search for new ways of speeding its economic development to fulfill its mission of providing a home for large sections of the Jewish people," Mrs, Malcolm Robbins, chairman of the Columbus Community—Governor's Dinner Committee for State of Israel Bond declared. Mrs, Robbins added that Israel is aI.so ready to share its economic and scientific know-how with other,, less developed countries in various parts of the world, as well as its Arab neighbors. The Columbus Committee is now engaged in a campaign to raise its share of the nation-wide effort to provide $100,000,000 in 1965 for ex¬ panding the economy of Israel through irrigation, the establish¬ ment of new agricultural settle¬ ments, the construction of highways and harbors, the expansion of in¬ dustrial production, and the con¬ struction of housing, schools and other public buildings. Discussing the significance ot the Columbus campaign for Israel Bonds, Mrs, Robbins said: "Since the beginnings of modern Jewish settlement in Palestine, Jews throughout the world have given it their moral and financial assist¬ ance. During the past quarter of a century the bulk of that support has come from the United States and since the establishment of the State of Israel, the Israel Bond campaign has played a role of decisive im¬ portance," Mrs. Robbins reported that many hundreds of persons in Columbus who were among the first buyers of Israel Bonds were receiving pay¬ ment on matured Bonds at the rate of 150 cents per dollar invested in 1951, "The faith of these friends of Israel is being redeemed in the success of Israel Bonds and the pro¬ ductive use of the proceeds in developing Israel's economy," she said. "The people of Israel rely on the Israel Bond campaign as the major source of funds to finance the gigan¬ tic tasks of developing the outlying areas of Israel so that they may provide homes and employment for the growing native population as well as the continuing flow of new immigrants," she said. Mrs, Robbins emphasized that participation in the Israel Bond program represents a partnership between the Columbus community and the people of Israel in build¬ ing a new democracy on sound economic foundations.

' CAPITOL LADIES AUXILIARY NO. 122 GIVES FUG TO JUNIOR CONGREGATION an ardent supporter of civil rights for Negroes. He succeeds Label A. Katz, of New Orleans, who was elected honorary president for life. Associate Supreme Justice Arthur Goldberg told the delegates that in an age of growing resistance to in¬ tolerance, the treatment by Soviet authorities of Russian Jews was an "anachronism" and that it was a "grave mistake" for the Soviet Union to hold the view that "in a generation or two, if the present situation continues, the Jews of the Soviet Union will have disap¬ peared." Prime Minister Levi Eshkol told the 1,300 delegates thaf assimila¬ tion was the greatest danger to Jewish continuity, especially in countries where Jews have achieved political and economic emancipa¬ tion. He urged the delegates to "deepen the roots" of Jewish cul¬ ture as a barrier to assimilation. He also told the delegates that Israel's position in the Middle East had improved while the prestige of Egyptian President Nasser had de¬ clined. He said the conference of Arab leaders underway in Cairo was designed to "hide the cracks" in the "facade" of Arab "unity.", Philip Klutznick. B'nai B'rith honorary president, alluded in tiis address to the present Mapai rift between Premier Eshkol and former Premier David Ben-Gurion, without mentioning either man by name. He said he was sure both leaders "sympathize with the great concern of many that the internal political strength of Israel be kept inviolate in the midst of legitimate differ¬ ences in the awareness of the foe who stands outside the gate," Tributes was paid to Katz who was awarded a scroll by Premier Eshkol lauding him for his "efforts in bringing closer ties between Israel and world Jewry,' Ben-Gurion told the convention that 'in spite of all logic," he be¬ lieved that the American Jewish community would survive but he warned that survival depended on stronger emphasis on the study of Hebrew. He also urged greater migration of American Jews to Israel," He said he was not asking "all American Jews" to settle in Israel but that he felt that the delegates should send their children to attend high schools and uni¬ versities in Israel, Mrs, Golda Meir, Israel's Foreign Minister, called American Jewry a "reservoir" for aliyah and "Yid¬ dishkeit," Citing the drama of Israeli life, she stressed the inter¬ dependence of Israeli and American Jewry. She told the convention that Jews were approaching a crossroads, re¬ quiring closer links with American Jewry, including a "signifcant ali¬ yah" of young American Jews. Deputy Premier Abba Eban said that the proposals voiced by Tunisian President Bourguiba indi¬ cated an emerging realism in the Arab world toward Israel. He told the delegates that Nasser's doctrine that Israel would disappear under relenting Arab pressures was being questioned by "new voices" in the Arab world which he said were likely to grow. He said the Arab realism was developing from the realization that in 17 years of Israel's existence, the Arabs had failed to curtail Israel's territory, to force a return of the Arab refugees to Israel, to prevent Israeli relations with most of the world and to prevent Israel's national irrigation development project.
