The proposal was made by Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel's Foreign Minister. The call upon the U.S. Government was voiced by Senator Ken¬ neth B. Keating, New York Re ¦ publican. In a public address. At the same time, Senator , Keating also challenged the Arab states to agree to the proposal. "The Ardb countries," he said, "have con¬ stantly called on the United States and the Soviet Union to undertake such a pact. The time has come for us to call on them to act re¬ sponsibly in their own part of the world. Instead of merely crating about others." Senator Keating, who apoke at a conference of the Zionist Or¬ ganization of America, warned that the United States could not afford to "wait and let the dust settle" in the Middle East He pointed out that only the Soviets are benefiting from the continued stalemate.

"There are already UN teams in the area Inspecting and guaranteeing the frontiers To extend their jurisdiction over a wider area for weapons control would be relatively easy," tho Senator pointed out. "The goal of United States policy," Senator Keating continu¬ ed, "should be to promote a set¬ tlement of the Middle Eastern Imbroglio on terms that will in¬ sure Israel's continued survival and survival as a free nation and a Jewish homeland and enable all the countries of the area to work together for human progress. What's more, I believe that the achievement of a more lasting peace In the Middle Bast is so Important, so essential to the in¬ terests of the United States and of' the free world that it should have highest priority.

"It is dangerously clear that the only nation which really gains from the present situation in the Middle East is the Soviet Union," Ihe Senator said. "The Arab na¬ tions are suffering from thoir own policies as well as Israel. They are Impoverishing themselves to main¬ tain an arms buildup that is sup¬ posed to Intinvidate Israel. The in¬ ternal sacrifices necessary to maintain this armory make eco¬ nomic development far more dif¬ ficult and provide the communists with a ma,de-to-order issue for stirring up discintent.

Harry Gilbert has long been an exponent of the type of in¬ tensive, traditional Jewish educa¬ tion the Torah Academy provides. It was largely due to his dedi¬ cated efforts, and to his encour¬ agement ot a small group of men and women who were also advo¬ cates of such an educational in¬ stitution that the Torah Academy opened its doors with 11 first graders in 1958. Largely because of hia continued labor on behalf of this school, it has grown to have four grades and a kinder¬ garten, i>oasting 85 students.
