BY MILTCMfl FRIEDMAN WASHINGTON — Tbe State Department te embarrassed to find the U.S, Cavalry troops ;ta Korea comtag to the restcue of Is¬ rad's appl Icatf on to buy Phantom jet figliter-bomb- ers. Israd's plight has appar¬ ently had a greater Impact on American .sddiera sta¬ tioned along tit^;c^se-fire Unes ta Korea than tt has on the poUcy-makifirs. Members of Headquturterii Troop .and "A" Troop, Bburth Squad¬ ron, ot tiie MftorIc U.S^ 7tii Cavabry are patrdling the Imjta River to Uock Com¬ munist guerriUa penetra- tfcw. Ttey are witlita the sigM ot North Korean po¬ sitions. , A TROOPER was dtemay- ed to rekl ta a newspaper from home that Israd was throated by a Communtet- armed buUd-up but that the AdDitatetraUon refused to seU Phantom jets to tiie Is- raelte. He caU thte to ttie attention of the men ta hte troop. They' were' indignant over thte apparent stuiddity ta U. & pdicy. The name of ReP. Bertram L. PodeU, New York Dem¬ ocrat, was mentioned tactile newspaper as urgtag'aP- provd of the Phantom trans¬ action. Rep..PodeU was rat¬ her surprteed to receive an A.F.O. letter flromKorea bearing 75 signatures. THE TROOPERS wrote tiiat "we lend' bur support wiioleheartedl^2^ your ef- ftnrts on behalf of tbe only democratic nation ta the Middle East — tiie State of Israd." They explained that they were stationed facing the North Korean Communists "ind we know and under¬ stand what It te iUie to Uve under the tiireat of MIGs lurlcing just across the bor¬ der." EXPRESSING ktasMp witii the Israelis "manning the line agatast totditarian ag- gressibn tatiieMiddeEast." the troopers urged action on tiie jets. They caUed it a "vitd tesue." "As it te vitd for us here ta the RepubUc ot Korea to bave modem jets to defend oursdves, we fed tiiat tt is jnst as vitd for Israd to have P-4 Phantom jet fig^- ers. As Anierican soldiers, we support our friend and d- ly, tiw State of Israd," said tbe nwn of tiw Tth Cavalry: rr HAS^been estaUtehed that the'signatories repre¬ sented a cross-section of American —white and Uack, Protestant, Catbolic and Jewteh. the WMte House and the Departments otStateandDe- foise were asked to com¬ ment. None-of the otficids had anythtag to say. An urgent plea for cash trom Israd has resdted ta ' a crash program of Cash MobUization durtag tbe re- matader of tiw montii ot June, according to Herman M. Katz, president of tbe United Jewteh Fund and Council. Under the chafar- manship ot WUliam V. Kahn, past presUoit of tiw UIFC, and MlUardCumminls, mem¬ ber of the Nationd Young Leadership Cabtaet of tiw Udted Jewish Aived, alarge committee te now contacting contributors totb4l96S Campdgn and aU who have balances for prior years, to make immediate cash pay- mmts on curirent and back pledges ta tdl qr sigdfi- cant portions ot such pled¬ ges, even tf they are not yet due. These specid cdiection eflbrts wiU tadude pieces .made recently to tiw terad Emergency Fund Campaign, as wdl as pledges,stiUun- : :^^vpaid ta tiw 1967 Emergency: Fund drive aftm- tiw Sbt Day iSMtev"- '¦¦'""¦'. ¦ --P-^:--'-;.'¦:r.\,: THE NEED for cash stems largely flrom the precarious ^ truce wMch extets betWeeh ' Israd and her Arab nei^- bors, especially Egypt and Jordan, wUch foUowed the War,last June, and the faU¬ ure to estaUlsh apermanent peace. As a resdt, Israd has had to divert more and more of her own resources to protect her securityposi- tion. Expenditures for arma¬ ments, fortificatims and ta- creased moUUzation other manpower conttaue to mount, as guerrUlaraiders conttaue ttwbr death and destruction across tbe borders. ' ta addition, Israd must occupy significantly tacreas- ed territory, and holdttunUl a peace can be negotiated. These tacr.eased outiays for security hi^ made it impos- siUe for Israel to continue the essentid programs of imniigration absorption, welfare ne^ and education. Thousands of immigrants are stiU arrivtag ta Israd trom countries where they have been persecuted and tbeir lives are insecure. Is¬ rad welcomes tiwse immi¬ grants, but must provide housing for them, job trata- ing, education, anda myriad of other bnman needs wUch during the month ot June wMch can be immediatdy forwarded to tiw Udted JeW- teh Apped for transmtesion to Israd. '^^t^S^ff^ Positkin i/Irs, Jack Resler, pres¬ ident ot tiw Board of Her¬ itage House, announced with regret the terminatim of eniployment of Utzar Brener as Executive Director of the Jewish Home for tiw Aged. Brener has accepted a po- siticm as the Executive Di¬ rector of the FairfieldCoun- ty Jewteh Home for ttw Aged of .Bridgeport, Connecticut. TMs new responsibUily of¬ fers him an opportunity to devdop and buUdanew com¬ plex to meet tiw needs of the aged dtizens ot that densely populated area. It presents .a chaUenge wMch wlU requbre Mm to use hte already demonstrated qud- ittes of leadersMp ahd ex¬ ecutive aUUty. TO WISH Mm success and bap^ness ta bte new posit¬ ion, the boards of Heritage House and Ite AuxUlary are sponsoring a fiureweU^dta- ner to honor Lazar Brener, Ms wtfe Jeanette, and Ms- daughter PhyUss on Tues¬ day, July 2, 6:30 p.ni. ta the Agudas AcMm Socid HaU.

THE citizens of Israel are doing more than t^elr share- tiw tax sttuation'aid tiw vol- untary loan representing two weeks salary of every single wage earner hi the country have placed a staggering burden on them. Theabready over-burdened economy creates serious iniman prob¬ lems which ody American Jewry can reUeve.
