Gen. Hilldring Warns Americans Against Aiding “irregular Forces” in Israel

“Americans who have given aid and comfort to the irregular forces in Israel must share responsibility for the tragic murder of Count Folke Bernadotte Friday in Jerusalem,” Major General John H. Hilldring, former Assistant Secretary of State for Occupied Areas and American delegate to the United Nations, told more than 200 Jewish leaders from all parts of Maryland who assembled here yesterday for the Maryland State Conference of the $250,000,000 United Jewish Appeal.

Gen. Hilldring urged continued support of the work of the U.J.A. agencies. He described his own work in behalf of the occupants of displaced persons camps and emphasized the urgent need for assistance for those who immigrate to Israel, as well as for those who remain in Europe or come to America. Lee L. Dopkin, prominent Baltimore communal leader, was re-elected Maryland regional chairman.
