"Our overseas responsibilities will not diminish substantially In our lifetime," Stern said. "In light of this, communities have to cre¬ ate a pattern which permits them to meet their share of this re¬ sponsibility and which makes possible the development and growth of local emd national agencies."

In Bonn, regret over the failure of the West German Government to bring to a close the laws for restitution and compensation to Nazi victims was expressed by Dr. Nahun Goldmann following three days of negotiations with key finance officials on legislation to complete the restitution and compensation laws. In Jerusalem, Israel's Parliament rejected a motion to abolish military government in the country's Arab sections after Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion intimated that de¬ fection within his coalition government on the issue would lead to a fail of his government and force new elections. The vole was 50 to 26 with 23 aljstentions. In United Nations, N.Y., Israel voiced a powerful plea for regional disarmament, with controls, in the Middle East, as a step toward world disarmament. At the same lime, Israel criticized Egypt—without naming that country—for Cairo's new rocketry program aimed at Israel. In Jerusalem^ Israel's Farlianment defeated in heated debate four motions to amend the state security law of 1057 which had been, criticized by Israel's Supreme Court as untenable. By a vote of 18 to 39, the Knesset beat back the motions after Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion defend¬ ed the law as required by Israel's unique security situation. The Prime Mini.ster cited an opinion by Attorney Genei'al Gideon Hausner in favor of the law. In Bonn, Dr. Heinz Starke, West German Finance Minister, told the Parliament he hoped that a bill woiild be submitted "in the next few months" to make po.ssible com¬ pensation payments for claimants still not covered.
