See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

It Is almost the unanimous concensus here that there is no doubt whatever that Israel’s Prime Minister David Ben Gurion will participate in any discussion on the Middle East to be held by the projected summit meeting–and that if Mr, Ben Gurion is not present. United Arab Republic President Gamal Abeel Naser will also be absent.

Mitchell Goldstein, six foot three, 220-pound ex-U,S. Marine and a regular member of the United Nations security force, was alerted by UN officials here today to be prepared to act as Prime Minister David Ben Gurion’s personal bodyguard if and when Mr. Ben Gurion arrives at the United Nations. If Mr. Ben Gurion does not come here, Mr. Gold stein has been told, he will serve as one of the security party for Soviet Premier Nikata S. Khrushchev.

Mr. Goldstein is one of ten Jews who are members of the 150 man UN security force. The 32-year-old officer speaks Yiddish. Before joining the UN security force six years ago, he served In Marine Corps’ military police and criminal investigation units. He saw active service in both World War II and the Korean War.
