To Admit Egyptian Jews NEW YORK (JTA) -- The United States was urged this week to exert leadership within the United Nations for a solu- tion of the Arab-Israel problem and to ask for a United Nations inquiry into the Egyptian treat- ment of Jews.

THE TRANSCRIPT " g S " " K,n aud's V,s,t By Theodore Kaghan Reprinted from the New York Post, January 9, 1957 President Eisenhower's crusade to save democracy in the Middle East is getting off to a royal start with an invitation to that great bulwark of freedom, King Saud of Saudi Arabia, to visit the White House and kick around a few mutual problems. The king arrived Jan. 30 and for three days Administration salesmen will give him the treat' ment on Ike's new Middle East Doctrine in the hopes, apparent- ly, of convincing him that no potentate in all Arabia has a bet- ter friend than Uncle Sam. The treatment will start with a stag dinner at the White House, but it is unlikely that Ike will Page Seven resldent of t Education, V/ National J tver.

Rothenberg, 71, a partner in the Stone-Rothenberg tailoring firm, were held in the Arthur A. Wright & Son chapel on Jan. 31. Mr. Rothenberg died Tuesday after a long illness. He had lived here ince 1909, when he came from Minneapolis, his birth- place. Mr. Rothenberg had been as- sociated in the tailoring firm since 1914. He was a member of the Elks Lodge, B'nai B'rith and Temple De Hirsch. He was a Ma- son and a Shriner. Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Leonard Cohen, Seattle, Mrs. Bernard T. Smith, Los Angeles, and Marjory Rothenberg, with the United States government in Japan; three brothers, Charles William and Samuel Rothenberg, and a sister, Ruth Rothenberg, all of Minneapolis, and two grand- children. Golda Meier Hospitalized NEW YORK (JTA)  Mrs. Golds Meier, Israel's Foreign Minister, became suddenly ill this week and was admitted to a New York Hospital, accord- ing to the Israeli delegation to the United Nations. Her doc- tors reported that Mrs. Meier was suffering from exhaustion and prescribed a complete rest for a few days. lean so far toward Saudi Ara- bian custom as to provide the dancing slave girls the King is accustomed to at home. The question of slavery, anent either dancing girls or less color- ful household chattels, will prob- ably not come hp at all,.since it would likely: embarrass King Saud and cut into tae time neces- sary to discuss more important things. The fact is that King Saud, in addition to floating on one of the most fantastic pieces of oil-sup- ported real estate in the world, is also the world's foremost patron of slavery. This particular honor was paid him most recently back in February, 1956, by the Anti- Slavery and Aborigines Protec- tion Society, in an official report used at the Geneva UN anti-slav- ery convention last year. Instead of discussing the price of slaves on today's Saudi Ara- bian market, talk will probably center on the price the king wants for the air base we built at Dhahran, where American mil- itary chaplains don't dare walk the streets wearing the cross and no Jewish GIs are allowed. Saud reportedly wants us to shell out something like $300,000,000" for six years rent, plus key money in the form of 90 F-86 Sabre jets. The price of slaves, of which there are said to be 500,000 in King Saud's bailiwick, is a bit more reasonable, according to the latest quotations.

' NEW YORK (JTA)--A warning that increasing tension in the bitter battle*0ver school desegregation in the southern states will step up pressure on southern Jews was made to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here by a nationally known authority on racial and minority problems. The nature of the twofold dilemma--the increasing use of anti- Semitic hatemongering by well-known bigots involved in the fight for white supremacy and the increasing insecurity of southern Jews caught between local pressures and their tradition and affiliations with national Jewish organizations--was described by Alexander F. Miller, national community services director of the B'nai B'rith Anti- Defamation League. Tracing the background of the use of anti-Semitism in the cur- rent struggle, he noted that a number of Southerners had be- gun to make use of the bigot's equalJon of Judaism, Zionism and Communism ahnost immediately after the rebirth of tension which followed the Supreme Court decision on segregation in the schools• Then, too, the ADL official pointed out, White Citi- zens Councils, in their early stages, often made use of anti- !Semitic material in publications which they were distributing be- cause they also contained anti- :Negro material. Turning to the problems of Southern Jewry, Mr. Miller pointed out' the possibility of OR she had to smuggled.
