An additional 400 ambulances and larger quantities of blood plasma are needed by the Red Mogen David for use of the army and people of Israel, an emergency meeting of the American Red Mogen David hold here last night was told by two members of an Israeli commercial mission who recently arrived in this country. Harry A. Pine, chairman of the board of directors of the American Red Mogen David, announced that a $500,000 drive would be launched to purchase and equip the ambulances.

The Government of Israel prefers the prospect of political harmony with its Arab neighbors, although it is fully confident of military success, Aubrey Eban, head of the Israeli mission to the United -Nation’s, and chief speaker last night declared. “This can be achieved only on the formula of political independence combined with regional cooperation, as the only possible relationship between Israel and neighboring Arab states,” he stressed. Other speakers included Louis Lipsky, national president of the Red Mogen David, and Rep, Emanuel Celler.
