' .*" WASHINGTON, (JTA) - Assistant Secretary of State Joseph J. Sisco and Israeli Ambassador Simcha. Dinitz, making his maiden address in Washington, differed widely and sharply on May 7 in their assessments of the origin of the Six-Day War, the road to peace and other elements of the Arab-Israeli conflict. They addressed some 2000 people at the Sheraton Park Hotel" in the climax here of Israel's 25th anniversary celebrations. Sisco, speaking first, said that the vision of both Arabs and Israelis "has often been clouded by myths of the past which have persisted in obscuring the realities of the present," and referred to 'lost opportunities" for a settlement. A "myth" that is now accepted as reality in much of ttie Arab- world is that the Six-Day War was the result of unprovoked Israeli aggression, 't% tne State ;,TDepartment'it foremost Middle East specialist said. "On the Israeli side, there is the myth that the Six-Day War was the result of a calculated Arab plan to launch a war. of destruction against Isra£&' he added. "In my view.VnSisco said in one of manyj&fcssages that seemed to stitgss'an even- handed perspective to tbe conflict, "the'most plausible explanation is-that the Six- Day War resulted from improvised actions and reactions by each side. Combined with each side's perception and suspicion of the other's, the cumulative weight of these actions and reactions made inevitable a war neither side deliberately sought at that time." Sisco, who expressed confidence that the United States will "remain steadfast in its support , for Israel's security,"' also described as a "myth that security is solely a function of the physical location of territorial bouhdaires." In this connection, he quoted East :aell For V-H^sS.),*! OSU Establishes Hebrew With Donation BY BILL COHEN Chronicle Special Reporter The Ohio State University Board of Trustees on May 7 officially created a Designated Professorship of Hebrew with the. goal of turning out better Hebrew teachers and students in Columbus. The new faculty post was established by a donation of $100,000 to OSU's Development Fund from the United Jewish Fund and Council, which will support the program for the next five years. * Robert Smith,1 OSU Vice President for Development, told The - Chronicle a ' prominent person may be ' named for the job at the next Trustees meeting early in June. Hebrew teacher- training will be one of tbe main responsibilities of the new post, according to Dr. Yehiel Hayon, Chairman of the Hebrew Program in the College of Humanities. The person who takes the job "will have two types of students," ^ata*~J3flyon, "teachers who are already teaching in the Jewish community....and students who are, at this point, majoring in Hebrew at the University and who see their future as Hebrew teachers." The second part of the job will be acting as "a con¬ sultant to the Hebrew schools in Columbus," ac¬ cording to Hayon. "He will be visiting in the schools and be evaluating what they're doing." Hayon added that long- range goals of the program are to develop better 1 materials for teaching Hebrew.

Beth Jacob Testimonial To Honor Mr. Moishe Weinstock On Sunday, June 17, Beth Jacob will host its second annual Testimonial Dinner at which it-will honor Mr. Moishe Weinstock, an active and devoted member of the Congregation for 41 years. Although President Dr. Charles Young announced Mr. Weinstocks' selection- over a month ago, the date for the event could not be firmed because of Mr. Weinstocks' extended visit to Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban as saying that "the question of boundaires is one of the components of' peace and not its sole con¬ dition." Finally, Sisco said, "There, is the myth that peace can be made by proxy- •that powers not party to the conflict, acting in¬ dependently or through the United Nations, can somehow. substitute for negotiations between the v parties themselves. This - hasn't been the case in any of the successful negotiations of international disputes in recent history, and the Middle East is not exception. The United Nations and outside powers can play a responsible role in en¬ couraging the parties to get a negotiating process started. But they cannot be part of the process itself." Speaking of v*.'lost op¬ portunities" that -haye^r- "slipped through the fingers of thosecbncerehed," Sisco said that "perhaps the greatest opportunity" came after the Six-Day War when * . tiie .
