The sources, reached by telephone from here, said that Gedaliya Kipnis, who spent five months in jail pending the trail, has been released and that other Jews have been un¬ dergoing questioning for some time although none had been detained. CHICAGO (JTA) — More than 4,000 Chicago-area boys and girls took part in a 25-mile "Walk with Israel" on Sunday, May 20th, to commemorate Israel's 25 years of statehood and to raise funds for the Israel Emergency Fund. Some 2,400 of'them completed the Walk, which was; sponsored by the Chicago Jewish Youth Council in conjunction'with the Young People's Division of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago. The Walk began at Chicago's Bernard Horwich Jewish Community Center, and wound in a circle for 25 miles through Northside Chicago and the suburbs, ending at the Center. Individual walkers were sponsored on a per-mile basis by relatives and friends. The proceeds of the Walk are expected to total $150,000. Last year, 3,50walkers raised $112,000. NEW YORK (JTA) — Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller paid tribute to Israel's "triumph and courage over incredible obstacles" by focusing on a "side of the miracle of Israel that's too often overlooked." Ad¬ dressing some 1000 American and Israeli businessmen of the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce at¬ tending a black-tie dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Rockefeller declared: "We are all deeply and un¬ derstandably impressed by the courage of Israeli arms. But equally vital to Israel's survival has been her economic flowering over the past 25 years. She has become a bumming, thriving workshop and a land of increasing plenty." . • Protest PlighH Of Iraqi Jews U.S. Warns U.N. Against Changing Resolution While Reports Heard Of Arms Sales To Arabs WASHINGTON (WNS) — The' United States has warned the Security Council mat any tampering with Resolution 242 when the Council starts a review of the Middle East situation June 4 would only impede chances of a settlement between Israel and the Arab nations. In.a rare White House press conference, John Scali, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations called the resolution the "takeoff point" essential for opening direct or indirect negotiations between the two sides. . Scali reaffirmed the U.S. position that a solution to the Mideast conflict must come from either direct or indirect talks between the parties involved in the dispute. His remarks were seen as a rebuff to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman J. William Fulbright, who in a Senate speech earlier said that the great powers should impose a settlement. The U.S. position in the Security Council debate, according to Scali, is that the nations involved have ac¬ cepted Resolution 242 as a basis for settlement. and while each side may in¬ terpret it differently tbe U.S. continues "to feel it is a fundamental framework whose continued existence is essential." He added that when United Nations bodies have tried to reinterpret the resolution it has impeded the chances of negotiations. Scali said the U.S. has no plans to introduce its own resolution during the debate. He also said while he does not anticipate a veto by the U.S. he would take whatever action is necessary. He said the U.S. will be guided by its "friendship and esteem for both sides" and cautioned against recriminations or unworkable procedures.
