War in Mid-east Would Spread Throughout World, Eban Forecasts

War in the Middle East would lead to another world war, Israel Ambassador Abba Eban told the Pioneer Women’s 15th annual convention here last night. However, Mr. Eban was optimistic in his belief that war would not come to the Middle East “because all the states in the world are now bound together by ties of mutual vulnerability.”

Earlier, Mrs. Chaya Surchin, president, reported to the five-day biennial session, that almost $2,000,000 was raised for Israel during the past year for the educational, cultural and welfare projects of the Pioneer Women. Mrs, Surchin said that Pioneer Women funds made possible the training of over 20,000 women at 181 vocational groups, farm guidance schools and instructional classes for new immigrants. The American group, she said, also supported a social welfare program for 20,000 children that included 200 kindergartens, 75 day nurseries, 40 clubs and five resident homes for children.
