Eisenhower Asked to Promote Establishment of Arab-israel Peace

President Eisenhower was asked today to use this country’s “utmost powers of persuasion and leadership” to make certain that the United Nations Security Council considers the Arab-Jewish problem in its entirety “and not on the ineffective piecemeal basis which has prevailed in the past.”

The appeal was addressed to the President by the board of directors of the National Council of Jewish Women which will conclude its four-day session here tomorrow. It emphasized that “the United States, as well as the other nations of the world must accept responsibility for the present crisis, ” and called “graver than ever” the responsibility of the United States in handling the Middle Eastern situation.
