American Zionist Council Honors Former Ambassador Reid

Ogden R. Reid, former United States Ambassador, said here this weekend that the absence during 1960 of Israeli-Arab border incidents had created a “hopeful policy,” which, he said, could be the basis for a “new quiet diplomacy” in the Middle East. Mr. Reid made the remarks at a luncheon given in his honor by the American Zionist Council.

Israel, he said, is devoting herself to progress in culture, science, agriculture and medicine. These accomplishments, being performed through the democratic process, he added, could set an example for the rest of the Middle East.

Among the speakers who lauded Mr. Reid for his 20 months of diplomatic service to Israel, were Senator Jacob K. Javits, Michael S. Comay, Israel’s permanent representative to the United Nations, and Rabbi Irving Miller, chairman of the American Zionist Council.
