PARIS (Dec. 10)
The proposed conciliation in Palestine will cost the United Nations $4,092,000 for the next ten months–$6, for each adult Israeli and Arab to be conciliated in Palestine.
At the start, the projected U.N. conciliation commission would have 500 military observers, 107 internationally recruited officials and 72 technical personnel. Altogether, the proposed three grand conciliators will have a staff of 679.
The whole ten months of conciliation will cost less than three days that war in Palestine has cost the combatants. It will cost less than one week’s additional expenditure by Israel for defense against Egypt alone.
