Research Underway On Rare Disease In Jewish Children BALTIMORE,, (JTA) — A comprehensive research program designed to find the caiise and a means of controlling Familial bysautonomia, a rare genetic disease wliich predominantly strikes Jewish children, is under¬ way at the Johns Hopkin's De¬ partment of Medicuie. The re¬ search program is expected to take three years. The first phase of the three-stage study — the genetics of the disorder — is expe^ecl to be completed by this summer. In the second stage of the study, the researchers will try to locate the defect causing the disorder which. While not fatal in itself, has extremely serious complications. Consequently, the fatality rate of Dysautonomia is about 40 percent. THE FINAL phase of the study, which will be divided into two parts, is designed to localize the site of the defect and fhid a means of controlling the condi¬ tion. It is believed that Familial bysautonomia is transmitted by a recessive gene which is carried by both the mother and-father. TBE DISEASE, which may pkip several generations, occurs when two people who are carriers have children. Even then it can¬ not be immediately determined if a couple are carriers since they may liave one, two or even more normar children before Dy¬ sautonomia appears. Also, two or more Dysautonomic children in one family are not uncommon. The disease has severe implica¬ tions In every aspect of the child's lif^ and can affect every body function.

NEW YORK, (JTA) — The an¬ nounced hitention of the Pales¬ tine Liberation Organization to send Arab refugee recruits to fight with Viet Cong guerillas against American troops in South Viet Nam touched off shock waves this week in Washington and in Jordan, Egjrpt and Syria. After the United States asked for detaUed reports on the activ¬ ities of the PLO, and the Senate Subcommittee on Refugees Indi¬ cated It might hold hearings on issues arising from United States support of the United Nations Relief aiid Woirks Agency for the refugees. Sen. Edward Kennedy, chairman of the subcommittee, reiterated in New York his pro¬ posal that Arab refugees hi the Palestine Liberation Army be re¬ moved from UNRFA relief rolls, SpeakUig at a dinner of the Brandeis University trusteeSi the Senator estimated there were be, tween 10,000 and 14,000 refugees hi the PLO army and that all of them were receiving food and supplies from UNRWA. SEN. KENNEDY said it was "hicorapatible with United States policy and with the fundamental concept of the United Nations to supply aid in any way to mem¬ bers of any army whose purpose is to work against a member na¬ tion of the United Nations." The announced goaf of the PLO army is to "liberate Palestine.',' He also cited other "substantial abuses ir!,.Ahe..J[|tTOy?A.^:OB|eratto^^^^ Jordah, iiebaiiojii ¦ Sjmai and Egypt. In Washington, George Ab¬ rams, staff director of the sub¬ committee, who recently conduc¬ ted a survey hi Arab countries of UNRWA aid to the refugees, said that Jordan had assured him it would try to rectify UNRWA records of Arab refugees in Jor¬ dan. Abrams conducted a three- week survey of the refugee sit¬ uation in Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt, which controls the Gaza Strip, where many of the refu¬ gees live on UNRWA aid. ABRAMS SAID he had talked to leader^ of the three Arab governments about the recruiting of refugees for the PLO army but refused to discuss the con¬ tent of those talks. Current UNRWA figures showed that in Jordan 558,327 refugees were op UNRWA roils. It was estimated in Washington that at least 200,- 000 UNRWA ration cards in Jor¬ dan have been "paissed on" to Jordan mercliants and others us¬ ing UNRWA cards improperly. The United States pays 70 per¬ cent of UNRWA's annuel costs. Since the UN agency was created hi 1950, the United States has contributed $364,458,069 to the agency. In an address over Radio Am, man. King Hussein of Jordan called for dissolution of the Arab refugee camps in Jordan and in, tegration of the camp residents into their countries of refuge. He also announced a total break with the PLO, calling it an "ex tremists" group and warning that stringent measures would be ta, ken against PLO supporters In Jordan. A HIGH official of UNRWA in Beimt said that it would be diffl cult to eJimUiate from UNRWA rolls those refugees training in the PIX) army. He said that some get their training in the daythne and return to the UN¬ RWA camps at night. He also said that the UN agency has been discussing the problem with the Governments of Syria and Egypt. President Nasser of Egypt res¬ ponded to KUig Hussein's warn¬ ings with'an indirect attack on the Jordanian monarch. He de¬ clared in a speech that Egypt could no longer look forward to "Arab co-existence with "reac¬ tionary" Arab states. Nasser placed the Arab fight against Israel In seii6rid place, behind the stmggle for Arab "progress- ivism." He declared that Arab "reactionary.elements" could not "march witii'progressive forces, even if the road leads to the liberation of Palestine, because progressive forces see In the re¬ actionaries a danger even great¬ er than Israel itself." Reports rfeceived by the United States in Washington indicated that Ahmed Shukairy, chairman of the PLO met this week In Cairo with the Ambassador of North Viet Nam to continue "consultations on the participa¬ tion of some members of the PalesUne liberation army In training in guerilla warfare In Viet Nam." Humphrey's Words To AJP Denounced WASHINGTON, (JTA) — Vice-President Hubert H. Hum- , phrey's recent comments to a Washington convention of the' American Jewish Press Associa¬ tion have been denounced in a Cairo "Voice of Palestine" broad¬ cast to Near East by chairman Ahmed Shukahy of the "Pales¬ tine Liberation Organization," who arsb. coiifhMed niiUtajy ;col- laboration of his^ brgaiiization with Communist China. The text of Mr. Shukairy's re¬ marlts, delivered at a "'Palestine Liberation Army camp" in Syria, was received here this week. He commented on Vice-President Humphrey's description of the PX.O. as a threat to Israel and to peace, and said tiiat he wanted to confirm Mr. Humphrey's statement because "we and our army are a threat to Israel." "The Liberation Array' and the P.L.O. are proceeding with de¬ termination," 'he boasted. "We receive arms from the Chinese People's Republic. The P.L.O. has military officers being trained in the arms of liberation and the experience of the Chinese. Your brothers are there (in Commu¬ nist China) and we greet them." Klutznik To Study Current JeMish Life Philip M. Klutznick, U.S. Am¬ bassador on special assignment to the United Nations and for¬ mer U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Social and Economic Coundl, has assumed the chahmanship of an international comniittee to stimulate scientific studies of contemporary Jewish life throughout the world,, it was announced by Eliahu Elath, pres¬ ident of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who is currently visiting the United States. This intemational committee of the Hebrew University's Insti- t"te of Contemporary Jewry headed by Professor Moshe Davis will maintain continuing rela¬ tions with the Institute's teach¬ ing, research and intemational extension progrtuns. PARTICULAR EMPHASIS will be placed on those inter¬ national projects of the Institute which relate to the countries of the-respective members of the committee. In announcing the establish¬ ment of the intemational com¬ mittee, President Elath stated that "this hnportant new devel¬ opment is a reflection of a cen¬ tral purpose of the Hebrew Unl- yersityi —j its role as the Unlver- sity';bf the Jewish people, em¬ bracing the totality of Jewish experience both In Israel and In Jewish communities of the Dias¬ pora."
