"We shall, therefore, continue tq demand that all peace-loving coun¬ tries should endeavor to the limit of their capacity and influence, dis¬ suade the Arab rulers from follow¬ ing in the path ot aggression and military adventures and tp bring committees of both synagogues, im¬ pressed by the enthusiastic reports of last year's camping session, are again wholeheartedly supporting the camping session. Irving Stem, Agudas Achim youth director, is co-ordinating the ses¬ sion and is accompanying the group. BibUcal Animals Tp Be Imported JERUSALEM (WUP) — A large wild game preserve, to be stocked with many kinds of near extinct animals which populated the Holy Land in Biblical times, is to be established in the Negev south of the settlement of Yotvata, about 30 miles from EUat, it was an¬ nounced here recently. The project, already in an advanced planning stage, is sponsored by the Wildlife Society. The 5,000 acre park is similar in landscape, vegetation and climate to the East African Savannah from wliich the animals will be imported. The first section, some 1,000 acres, will be stocked with 18 species of animals, one male and two females of each kind. Baron Edmond de Rothschild, the society's honorary president, is supporting the project. to them the realization that direct negotiations between Israel and the Arab countries are the only way to achieve peace or progress toward it," he declared. Eshkol told the peuties that as long as the Arab countries main¬ tain an aggressive policy and con¬ tinue to stockpile modem types of offensive weapons designed for the destruction of Israel, "we must maintain constant Security prepard- ness. A strong Israel is a guaran¬ tee tor the prevention ot war in the Middle East." He reiterated Israel's wish to achieve a general disarmament with the Arab states and said that a special duty rests on the powers to ensure that an arms imbalance is not created to Israel's detriment and to the advantage of those threat¬ ening to attack her. After stating that the govern¬ ment's first priority will be given to strengthening security, Esiikoi said that the government's econ¬ omic policy will be geared to en¬ couraging all branches of endeavor that increase foreign currency in¬ come and productive employment, siiipping, aviation, tourism and fi¬ nance. Describing the partnership be¬ tween Israel and the Diaspora as unparalleled in history, he said ef¬ forts must be made to transform the material partnership of Western Jewry into a spirtual one. While the government will make an all- out effort to absorb immigrants of distress, it will also encourage im¬ migration from the prosperous coun¬ tries, he said. Eshkol indicated that the new govemment is open to other parties wishing to join the coalition on the basis of the national and social prin¬ ciples outlined. He said Israel so¬ ciety was still in this process of cre¬ ation and pressures from without and within were great. "Our se¬ curity, economic and social stabili¬ ty, cultural standards and values are still in a state of fluex," he stated. "In these circumstances, every group making demands must see not only their own particular demands, but also the needs of the community." The government, he said, will work unremittingly to ensure com¬ plete integration of Israel's Arab citizens in all spheres of lite, will persevere to develop their economy, rtuse their standard of living, foster education and improve the services they receive. Turning to foreign policy, Eshkol said the govemment will strive for closer political and economic ties with all countries of the East and West in all continents that sincere¬ ly desire to cooperate and will con¬ tinue to cooperate with the new states in Africa, Asia and Latin America who have won independ¬ ence in recent years. The World's Week Compiled from JTA Rtportt In Casablanca, a Jewish candidate who was defeated in Morocco's recent parliamentary elections appealed to the Supreme Moroccan Constitutional Chamber to determine the validity of the election of another Jewish candidate. Meyer Toledano, the loser, charged that Meyer Obadiah, the winner, used the resources of the Casablanca Jewish Committee, of which the latter is president, in the election campaign. Toledano charged that Obadiah used propaganda in synagogues and his authority in the Jewish committee. The constitutional chamber will consider the appeal but it was not expected that Obadlah's election would be voided. In Paris, the first of four 7,200 deadweight ton cargo motor ships financed by the AMPAL American Israel Corpo¬ ration, was launched at Nantes, France. The new vessel, designed to carry citrus fruit and general cargo, was named "Hadar" by Mrs. Louis Ludwig, wife of a prominent New York businessman and a vice president of AMPAL. In New York, Jewish fiineral directors across the coun¬ try have joined with the Union of Orthodox Jewish Con¬ gregations of America in a major move to encourage Jew¬ ish funeral practices on a nationwide scale in conformity with religious law and tradition, it was announced by Moses I. Feuerstein, national president of the UOJCA. Rabbi Leon I Rabbi Feupr Chosen Rabbi Leon I. Feuer, spirt¬ ual leader of the Collingwood Avenue Temple in Toledo, has been elected president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. The elec¬ tion took place at the CCAR's 74th annual convention in Philadelphia. Dr. Feuer, who served as CCAR vice presi¬ dent for the past two years, succeeds Rabbi Albert G. Min¬ da of Minneapolis.

Studies Reveal Divergences Between Jew And Non-Jew Recent population studies made by Jewish federations as aids in community planning reveal some significant differences in composition and growth patterns between the Jewish and non-Jewish portions of the population, according to the "Report on Jewish Population Studies" just issued by the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds (CJFWF). The demographic studies by eight federations within the past five years show that Jews in the United States diverge statistical¬ ly from the rest of the white urban population in age distribution, size of family, birth rate, proportion of foreign bom, level of eiducation and occuptitional classification. ONE SIGNIFICANT divergence was found to be in age distribu¬ tion. Ttie data reveals a substan¬ tially greater proportion of Jews In the 40 to 64 year old groups, fore¬ casting an increase in Jewish aged in the coming decades that will ex¬ ceed the rise in the general popu¬ lation. At the other end of the age scale, however, a drop in the number of Jewish births was revealed, con¬ trasting with a rise amohg the gen¬ eral white urban population. THE FINDINGS are reported trom studies made by the federa¬ tions in Rochester, South Bend, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Worcester, San Francisco, Trenton and Minne¬ apolis. The comparative data on the wiiite urban population is bas¬ ed on figures in the 1960 U.S. cen¬ sus. Those federation studies which reported the proportion of the foreign bom to the total Jewish population indicate that the Ameri¬ can Jewish community is tending to become almost completely na¬ tive bom. Witliin two decades, American Jewry (with the possible exception of those in New York City) may be 90 per cent native bom, with two-tiurds of the maining foreign born in the age group of 65 or over. THE HIGH LEVEL of education attained by U.S. Jews is shown in the fact that more than a third of those queried in the reporting studies had reached or gone be¬ yond the college level —• the larg¬ est ratio in the 30 to 44 year old group, and the proportion diminish¬ ing in the older age groupings. A comparison with the total wliite urban population indicates that pro¬ portionately twice as many Jews in these communities have attended college. A n occupational cross-section drawn from the reported data shows the largest proportion of American Jews to be managers, entrepreneurs and self-employed; a slightly small¬ er percentage to ite professionals and semi-professionals; stili fewer, engaged in clerical, sales, skilled and semi-skilled work; and virtual¬ ly none in unskilled or pe-'sonal and protective services. In contrast, the general U.S. cen¬ sus data shows the largest pnjpor- Uons in the skilled, semi-skilled, clerical and sales fields, and the smallest proportion in managerial or self-employment. The CJFWF report also reviews the eight-city data on size of Jew¬ ish households, Jewish fertility ra¬ tio and Intermarriage. The material in this report will form part of an article on the U.S. Jewish population to be included in the forthcoming American Jewish Yearbook. TH& CJFWF is the national as¬ sociation of 217 federations, wel¬ fare funds and connmunity councils. These central communal organiza¬ tions, serving areas with over 90 per cent of the Jews of the U.S. and Canada, annually raise the bulk of ail Jewish philanthropic funds. The CJFWF provides its mem¬ ber agencies with central services in fund raising, community organi¬ zation, health and welfare research and planning, personnel recruit¬ ment, budgeting and publicity.
