COLS. 0. "43211 EXOH - ' VOL. 53 NO. 2 JANUARY 9, 1975 - TEVETH 26 NEW YORK (WNS) — Joseph J. Schwartz> who as director general of American Joint Distribution Committee, supervised relief and welfare programs in 30 countries for more than 1 million persons, died here at the age of .75. Jewish leaders throughout the world , expressed grief at his death and more than 300 people, representing a cross-section of Jewish communal organizations here and abroad, attended the funeral Services at the Riverside Memorial Chapel. Dr. Sch¬ wartz was JDC secretary from 193940, chairman of the European Executive Council from i940-49 and director general from 1950-51. He was also the executive vice- chairman of the UJA from 1951-1955 and was vice- president and chief executive officer of the Israel Bond Organization from 1955-70. NEW YORK (WNS) — Eighty world renowned personalities in the field of music, dance and opera have signed a petition declaring that they "refuse to participate" and "disassociate" themselves from alt activities of UNESCO "until UNESCO rescinds its politicizing resolution directed against Israel." The action was announced in a press conference on the stage of Carnegie Hall, with many of the artists present, including Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Rubinstein and Isaac Stern. "UN]E§CO has utterly discredited itself in the eyes of musicians and dancers the world over by its recent political actions," the petition said.' "According to its constitution UNESCO's aim is to promote cultural collaboration among the nations. This aim is ill served, to say the least, by assigning one nation, Israel, to pariah status." TEL AVIV (WNS) — The United States has reversed its support of Israel's policy that no territorial with¬ drawals will be made before a final peace-treaty with the Arabs is achieved, according to former Defense Minister Moshe Day an. "And Israel has accepted this • policy,"- Dayan told hundreds of students and faculty members in the third of his series of lectures at Bar Dan University. Dayan said that Israel does not accept the American viewpoint, the U.S. applies pressure, he charged. Dayan said the U.S. avoids confrontation with the Soyiet Union by applying pressure on Israel. For example, he said, when the USSR threatened toL intervene if Israel continued its advance in the Yom Kippur War, the1 American forced Israel not to ad¬ vance, thus averting a confrontation. Kissinger Does Not Rule Out Military Action In Mideast If Oil Policies Are Strangling NEW YORK, (JTA) - Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said in'a magazine interview published Jan. 2 that he did not rule out the use of military action if Middle East oil policies were strangling the industrial nations. But he insisted, in the interview in Business Week, that "the use of force would be considered only in, the gravest emergency." Kissinger also said that it would be unwise for the United State's \o try to trade Israeli concessions to the . Arabs for a reduction of oil prices because that would create the basis for pressures in the opposite direction, the importance of Kissinger's statement was underscored by the fact that the* 'State Department of-' ficially distributed copies of the text of the interview to correspondents at the Department. Only last week, President Ford, in an interview with UPI at his Vail, Colo, vacation retreat, said it would be, "inappropriate" to comment on , recurring reports that there is a National Security Countil contingency plan for the U.S. to take over some Arab oil fields or help Israel do so. Kissinger, who is chairman (CONTINUED ON PAGE lt» Mayor Tom Moody proclaimed Dec. 24 as B'nai B'rith Day in Columbus.

"Some of us had been under the impression that Israel's .government was 'muddling through* without a clear-cut plan," Rabbi Israel Miller, chairman of the Presidents' Conference, said. "But now we see the overall plan." The delegation members had high praise for Rabin's ability to get" recent and Pontiac in the north end-." current Middle East events Governor Carey Urged To Expand Probe Into Nursing Home Fraud And Corruption , NEW YORK, (JTA) — The New York Congressman Rep.

Koch reiterated his proposal that the Governor appoint a>Moreland Com¬ mission with full powers to investigate nursing home corruption and authority to propose corrective legislation. A similar, suggestion was made to Carey last month by the American Jewish Congress. In a related development, the Federation" of Jewish Philanthropies of New York, in a statement by its president, Frederick P. Rose, expressed deep concern over ■ reported ad¬ verse conditions of patients in nursing homes and the alleged misuse of public (CONTINUED ON PAGE 15) Food consisted " of corned beef, salami, cheese, potato salad and pap.

He said that as far as he knew, the U.S. was honoring its commitments toward Israel including the shipment of! arms, Rabbi Miller said that When American Jewish leaders met recently with President Ford . and Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger they were assured that the U.S. would honor its commitments without "ifs, ands or buts." Later in an interview with the staff of the Jerusalem Post, Rabbi Miller challenged those in Israeli .newspapers who write of an "erosion" of American support for Israel to present concrete evidence. He cited continued staunch Congressional support demonstrated by the $600 million aid package voted for Israel, by the passage of. the Jackson Amendment, and the Ad¬ ministration's firm support in its ready response to Isffael's arms requests.
