Arab-Israel Peace Remote, Eban
Reports
WASHINGTON, (JTA) —.ls
rael Ambassador Abba Eban, ad
dressing the National Economic
Conference for Israel which open
ed here this week, indicated that
he saw little prospect of peace
with the Arabs in the next five
years. The three-day conference
is sponsored by the organization
directing the sale of Israel bonds
in the United States.
The Ambassador told the 800
delegates that the Israel Govern-

bility that it might be raised by
someone else. At the same time,
they were concerned by maneu
vers going on behind the scenes.
The division of offices at the
Assembly is usually agreed to
' beforehand and is by rote; it was
Israel’s turn for a place and it
was to have the vice-presidency.
Yet, Pakistan, a Moslem country
and one of the few pro-American
Asian states, announced its can
didature for the seat.
However, the vote, which was
by secret ballot, provided a clear
cut victory for Israel, 37 being
cast for her to 30 for Pakistan,
and the members of the delega
tion felt much relieved. A side
light on this affair which may be
regarded as a good portent; it
was by exactly the same 37 votes
that the partition resolution was
.passed in the Assembly and' the
State of Israel established.

ment had decided to call on Henry
Morgenthau, Julian Venezky and
Henry Montor “to accept the re
sponsibility” for planning and
launching a new Israel bond
issue in the United States in 1954.
Mr. Eban added that Israel’s first
bond issue, launched in this coun
try in May 1951, brought $160,-
000,000 in new capital to the Jew
ish State.
The Israel diplomat scored what
he as “international in
dulgence to the Arab policy of re
gional hostility.” He said that
signs of reduced tension in other
sectors of the world are not evi
dent in Ai’ab policy “which finds
itself increasingly out of harmony
with the conciliatory atmosphere
of contemporary international re
lations.”
Literary
Reflections
Two distinguished veterans in
the Jewish literary world who
have greatly contributed to
American Jewish culture are now
celebrating their 70th birthdays.
One is Samuel Niger, the doyen
of Jewish literary critics, and the
other ■is Harry Sackler, noted
playwright and novelist, whose
plays were among the best staged
by the. Yiddish Art Theatre in
New York and by the Habimah
in Israel . . . The works of both
men are of high literary calibre
and each of them is very well
qualified for a professorship at
any university where courses on
Yiddish or Hebrew literature are
given . . . Mr. Niger, who immi
grated to this country after World
War I, has been considered the
foremost Jewish critic soi 1 at least
40 years ... He is the author of
numerous volumes on Jewish
literature which will remain
classics. Mr. Sackler, whose works
have been published in Yiddish
and in Hebrew' in several vol
umes, also has to his credit a
novel in English, “Festival of
Meron,” published in 1935 . . ..
Some of his plays have been pro
duced as films . . . He is known
for his erudition as well as for his
literary achievements, and he has
mastered English to the same ex
tent as Yiddish and Hebrew . . .
Both Mr. Niger and Mr. Sackler,
are also known for their keen,
interest in American Jewish .com
munity life ... At one time Mr.
Sackler was the secretary of the
New York Jewish Kehillah which
was organized by the late Dr.
Judah L. Magnes . . . During the
last ten years he has been with
the Joint Distribution Committee
. . . Mr. Niger is especially active
in the field of Jewish education.

COURT SEEKS ACTION TO
SECURE RETURN OF
KIDNAPPED JEWISH CHILD
AMSTERDAM,— (JTA) Dr.
Isidore Mes, attorney for the fam
ily of Anneke Beekman, 12-year
old Jewish girl whose Catholic
foster mother refuses to return
her, has called on the public pros
ecutor to act against the Catholic
woman.
The foster mother, Miss H. Van
Moorst of Hilversum, in whose
care the child was left during the
Nazi occupation of Holland, has
spirited the child away and re
fuses to divulge her whereabouts
to the family. The girl is believed
to be in a convent.
Efforts by the Jewish commu
nity to obtain support from the
Catholic hierarchy in the Nether
lands for the return of the child
hqve proved fruitless. Several
months ago Dutch Chief Rabbi
Justis Tal appealed to the rank
ing Catholic bishop, but received
a reply which held out little hope
of assistance.
