Mayor William O’Dwyer, addressing 800 delegates attending the annual luncheon of the Jewish Teachers Community Chest at the Waldorf-Astoria yesterday, urged the luncheon guests to continue their support to Israel, which he described as a “new nation carved out of chaos by the spirit of love and human respect.” Mr. O’Dwyer termed the proposal to place Jerusalem under international control “poppycock.”
