On the latter issue, he turned to Israel's Ambassador Michael Comay, who was sitting on the dais not far from him, stating "your country knows how to con¬ serve water and value its use. You have solved your water problem. How about sending us an IsraeU technical assistance team and help the United States in its present water crisis'? Let Israel do some¬ thing for us now in return for what we have been doing for her." Hav¬ ing said this, Humphrey turned to Governor Rockefeller, another speaker at the event, suggesting he take note of his proposal. The audience roared with laughter. On the serious vein, Humphrey hailed Henrietta Szold. thel founder of Hadassah. as a person who made her dream come true". "She helped make part of her age an epoch of fulfillment. She had both idealism and practicality, the ability to dream the 'impossible' for those in need and to forge her vision into reality," he declared.

Today, he added, "the Western world recognizes Israel's medicine, and the emerging world cannot fail to note that Israel has become a leading center for rnedical train¬ ing and study for the developing na¬ tions, 'l am proud," he stressed, "as an American of what you, my fellow Americans, have done for so many, so long, so well." ""r?;=7!fS? - Germany is /lugcfcd By Demonstration BONN (JTA)—Pained surprise and shock dominated reactions in West Germany to the riotious demonstrations staged last week in Jerusalem, when Dr. Rolf Pauls, West Germany's first Ambassador to Israel, presented his credentials to President Zalman Sha«ar. Protesting Israelis, most of them survivors of the Nazi holocaust, clashed with police in the most violent fracas Thursday, that led to 15 arrests and an equal number of injuries among the demonstrators and police. ONE OF THE more notable Ger¬ man reactions was a statement by former Chancellor Konrad Adenauer that he was reconsidering his plans to visit Israel. Speaking in Muens- ter, the former Chancellor said that the tensions in Israel might cause him to postpone his intended visit next November "at the invitation of my friend, David Ben-Gurion." Eric Mendc, West German Vice- Chancellor, and head of the Free Democratic Party, a coalition part¬ ner, told an election gathering that the Jerusalem demonstrations were a resort to- "noxious Communist- Fascist methods which cannot be tolerated." He added that the demonstrations were a "slander" against an entire generation of Ger¬ mans who knew nothing of the Nazi past in a per.sonal sense and was "now doing its duty." He called the demonstrations "a new attempt to place collective guilt on the Ger¬ man nation," and added that "people should also remember" the Allied World War II bombings of Dresden and Cologne. FOREIGN MINISTER Gerhard Schroeder told a Stuttgart Chamber of Commerce meeting that he did not expect 100 percent of Israel's population to agree to the exchange of Ambassadors with West Ger¬ many. He said that normalization of relations between the two nations was one of the "major tasks" of current West German foreign policy. Karl-Guenther von Hase, the German press spokesman, ex¬ pressed regret over the Jerusalem protests, and added that his Govern¬ ment hoped that relations with Israel would now settle down to nor¬ mal conditions. West German correspondents in Israel sent back heavy coverage of the clash, with photographs. West Gerrnan television stations also gave wide coverage to the event. ALL BUT THREE of the 15 demonstrators arrested during last week's .jjots, when the new West German Ambassador~pjfes'ented his credentials to PresidCTit Zalman Shazar, were released. Police will probably charge the remaining three with unlawful as¬ sembly and interfering with a police officer in the carrying out of his duties. MEANWHILE, the Israel Govern¬ ment requested its mission in Co¬ logne to send to it the complete text of the statement attribued to Eric Mende, the West German Vice- Chancellor, calling the Jerusalem demonstrations against the German envoy a resort to "noxious Com¬ munist-Fascist methods."
