PORTLAND, Ore (May. 16)
Mrs. Joan Comay, wife of the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, addressed 8. 500 Christian women here Saturday night at the Methodist Women’s National Assembly. She called on the audience to participate in a “woman-to-woman” program to aid less developed lands. She was applauded when she asked that educated American women mobilize all their resources in such a program.
Earlier, at a luncheon session, Mrs. Comay described the birth of Israel, 18 years ago, and Israel’s development since 1948. She assured the women that Israelis “cherish the sacred association of our land for your faith and ours.” The Methodist Women’s assembly is believed to have been the largest non-Jewish audience ever addressed by an Israeli in this country.
