Arab-Israel Problem Affects All The Arab-Israeli situation is a problem which affects all of us, and will become more acute as time passes, two speakers told a Knox College audience at Tuesday's convocation in Knox Theatre. They were C. Bateman Ewart, midwest sales manager for Bell and Howell, Inc., and for five years an employe of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in the Gaza Strip, and Col. Robert Rickert, USMC (ret.), director of the midwest regional office of the American Friends of the Middle East and former deputy director of the United Nations Truce Supervisory Organization. Ewart is the son of Clifford B. Ewart, Knox Class of 1909, and son-in-law of Vernon M. Welsh, president of the Knox Board of Trustees. Cites Refugee Problem "The refugee situation is one of the most pressing major problems in the Middle East today," Ewart said. "The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) was created in 1949 to help care for the more than 800,000 refugees located in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the Gaza Strip. Thirty nations contribute to UNRWA, with the Golesburp Register-Moil, Golesburg, III. Thursday, Oct17, 1963 5 United Slatei paying W per cent of the bill. There is yet no resettlement plan for the rttaft*, although they now number more than l,2tO,orjO. UNRWA bean the major responsibility for providing food, shelter, education, sanitation, and medical aid to these people." Concrete block shelters have replaced the tents In which the Arabs were originally housed, Ewart reported, and added that UNRWA provides each refugee with meals totaling 1,500 calories a day. "The refugees are better off, in many Instances, than the poor of the surrounding nations," the speaker said. Oaza Strip Clashes Col. Rickert discussed questions of sovereignty, which are disturbing forces in the Middle East. He said: "The Oaza Strip, which Israel occupied during the Suez crisis of 1956, is the scene of frequent air clashes between Egyptian and Israeli planes." The colonel commented on Israel's plan to pipe water from the Jordan River to the Negev desert, a distance of over 100 miles: "This would allow Israel to convert 100,000 acres of desert into arable land. The Arab states, which refuse to recognize Israel's legal existence, claim that the water does not belong to Israel. Last week, a joint military command was established by Syria and Iraq to attempt to prevent the scheduled opening of the pipe line next year.
