Eshkol, has warned the Arab states his No. 1 objec ive is to strengthen the security of this 15-year-old state. Thus Eshkol, whose tripartite centrist coalition Cabinet was approved by the Knesset (par liament) last week, served notice he intends to pursue the stay-tough policies of his predecessor, David Ben-Gurion, who resigned for personal reasons. Where Ben-Gurion, 76, was inclined to be stubborn and autocratic, Eshkol, Israeli finance minister for 13 years, is noted for patience and an ability to bring together those holding divergen views. In setting forth his administration's objectives to the Knesset Eshkol, 67, made it clear he did not expect to be pushed into the sea by his Arab neighbors." While noting that Arab states are bickering in their efforts to unite, Esli kol saw a danger in this unity goal. Eshkol, like Ben-Gurion before him, believes that only a strong Israel can prevent war in the Middle East. Indeed, one of the last acts of the outgoing Ben-Gurion Cabinet was to approve an additional 10 million Israeli pounds— $3.3 million—allocation for Isareli defense. Eshkol also promised to continue to strengthen and develop the Israeli armed forces, which under Ben-Gurion won notable victories in 1948 and 1956.

A number from the local division are planning on attending he meeting of the state board n Springfield July 14 to which hey have been invited. This is the centennial of the second day of the great battle when Confederate troops under Robert E. Lee drove in vain to dislodge federal forces commanded by Gen. George Gordon Meade from the heights. One hundred years ago tonight two fateful decisions were made —by Meade to stand firm on Cemetery Ridge and other hills and by Lee to launch the next day the heroic assault led by Gen. Gporge Pickett, an attack which failed and spelled the coming doom of the Confederacy. This little town—population S,000—is entertaining many visitors from North and South but there are indications that ihe crowd is not nearly as big as had been hoped. Only 3,000 turned out at the Eternal Peace Memorial Monday for the big official opening of the commemoration. Blistering heat, rising at times to nearly 100 de- c-es, may have kept many people away. Monday's ceremonies included: the laying of 29 wreaths at the base of the memorial—men from that number of states took part in he great struggle; the issuance of a special blue and gray five- cent stamp; and the lighting of a Torch of Peace.
