NEW YORK (May. 28)
Dr. Oskar K. Rabinowicz of London, Zionist author and historian, declared last night that “a careful and official census of Palestine Arab refugees, carried out by an impartial agency, is the first requisite step toward a solution of the Arab refugee problem. “
Speaking before 200 Jewish social scientists and educators attending the 26th annual meeting of the Conference on Jewish Social Studies, held at Temple Emanuel, Dr. Rabinowicz stressed the “deep sympathy” of Jews for the plight of the Arab refugees growing out of the long record of Jewish experience as refugees. He predicted a careful census of Arabs actually displaced from territory now part of Israel would bring the number down to “manageable dimensions. “
Prof. Koppel S. Pinson, Professor of History and chairman of the Department of Social Sciences at Queens College, N. Y. , was re-elected president of the Conference.
