Tarshis, vice chair- man of the Washington State Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights will attend a meet- ing of representatives of all fifty state advisory committees to be held in Washington, D.C. this coming weekend, as a delegate of the local group. Regarding the recent vote on cloture rule, Mr. Tarshis said: "The vote on the cloture rule which now assures passage of the Civil Rights Act, is a vic- tory for all who love justice and love an America conceived in liberty. It is a defeat for no one except those who would prevent America from achiev- ing its ultimate dream." He said, "The result of the vote is a tribute to resolute leader- ship of men and womeu for whom the word patriotism has the meaning of love and jus- tice and decency. "It is significant," he con- tinued, "that on the basic issue the architects of victory in- eluded the President of the United States and Senators from both sides of the cham- ber. The strength and sincerity of Senator Humphrey of Min- nesota and Senator Kuchel of California will be particularly remembered. Their work can now be added to the profiles of courage that have marked our nation's legislative history. "For the thousands of civil rights leaders and for the country as a whole, the final passage of the Civil Rights Bill will provide new opportunities, which they dare not squander, to help out" Negro citizens achieve a full measure of their rights as Americans."

Eshkol and President Johnson At Conferences on Israeli Problems NEW YORK, (JTA) -- Israel's determination to build a better society and its willingness to help resolve Mid- dle East disputes were conveyed by Premier Levi Eshkol to President ,Johnson and a wide variety of other Ameri- can leaders in a whirlwind round of conferences and public appearances this month. In the first official visit by'---- .... an Israeli Premier on invita- tion by an American President, Mr. Eshkol met with President Johnson in a long and friendly discussion. In a joint corri- munique issued at the end of the talks, President Johnson reaffirmed United States sup- port for the territorial integrity and political independence ol" all countries in the Middle East and "the firm opposition of the United States to aggres- sion and the use of force or the threat of force against any country." Seattle Resolution On Russ Anti-Semitism In Nation's Records HON. ItENRY M. JACKSON Senator Henry M. Jackson of Washington state, has caused to be entered in the 1964 Congres- sional Record the proclamation of Governor Albert D. Rosellini selling forlh last March 14 as a "Sabbath of Protest." The reso- lution appeared in full in The Transcript of February 14, 1964. In presenting the proclama- tion to tim Senate of the United States for inclusion in the Con- gressional Record, Mr. Jackson said: "Mr. Presidenl, for some time there has been increasing evi- dence of growing anti-Semitism within the Soviet Union. AII I over the world, freemen con- cerned ahout this ominous cam- paign have spoken out against the measures which deny Soviet Jews their religious and cul- tural rights, and allow politi- cal, social, and economic meas- ures against Jews. "In connection with this pro- test, the S e a t t 1 e Council of Rabbis has been active in arousing the conscience of the public. The Governor of our Stat proclaimed a Sabbath of protest, which was widely ob- served last month. As a con- tinuing part of this effort, I ask unanimous consent that the proclamation of the Governor be printed in the Appendix of the Record." There being no objection, the proclamation was ordered to be printed in the Record. / Century Club Honors Merle Cohn One specific agreement was for a joint United States-Israel study of the use of nuclear power" for desalting seawater. The communique noted that progress in that effort would be made available $,o all 'coun- tries with "water defficien- ties," a description covering most of Israel's Arab neighbors. Closer Friendly ]Relations Generally, tlm communique pledged that both countries would seek to increase the present friendly relations link- ing them. It was understood that the Israeli visitors did not ask the United States for addi- tional arms, thougl the steady Egypian arms buildup, partic- ularly in the field of rocketry, vith the aid of West German Cientists was stressed by the ?remier repeatedly. Prior to his departure from Washington for New York, the Premier said he felt his visit to the capitol had improved contacts between the two countries and enhanced the generally friendly atmosphere. The Prime Minister met with Undersecretary of State Aver- ell Harriman, Assistant Secre- tary of State Philip Talbot, and others. A conference also was held in the office of Acting State Secretary George W. Ball. During the visit, Mr. Esh- kol also had a, breakfast meet- ing at Blair House vth Presi- dent George Meany of the AFL-CIO and other labor leaders. Agreements Needed Mr. Eshkol told an Overseas Writers Club luncheon that an earnest effort should be made to get effective and controll- able agreements to end the arms and military technology race in the Middle East. He said timt there was no slacken- ing in the flow of Arab threats against Israel and that Israel had no choice, despite the bur- den, but to maintain its mili- tary deterrent at a high level. Without this, he said, the "rela- tive quiet" in the Middle East "could be upset overnight•" Israel's basic positions were made known to President Johnson and the key figures of the Government. These in- cluded the belief that a mass return of Arab refugees would probably turn Israel into an- other CypriJs. Israel's readi- ness to help financially and technically for resettlement of the Arab refugees was empha- sized. Israel's belief that it needs to increase its conventional military capabilities was indi- cated, referring to more planes, more airfields, tanks and re- lated weaponry. The Premier told a United Jewish Appeal dinner in New York that Israel did not expect the Arab countries to mount an armed attack against Israel's massive Water Carrier project, scheduled to become opera- tional this summer• He stressed that the plan was being con- ducted in accordance with the :regional Jordan River plan proposed by the late Eric John- son in 1955 which was accepted at the technical level by the Arabs and rejected by the Arab governments. For Israel High Schools He also disclosed the UJA was planning a capital fund drive to build high schools for Israel, which does not have free high school education. He said the project would cor- rect an educational imbalance which "holds grave peril for our future." He said 43 of every 100 children entering Israeli elementary schools were of Asian or African origin. In high school, the ratio drops to 25 and at the university level to 12. He said Israel had no in- tention of becoming a nation divided between educated and uneducated but that it lacked Ithe financial resources for Pi]il Boguch, Chairman of the Century Club Committee{]public high schools.
