Dulles Friday in a speech before the Council on Foreign Re lations in New York Stressing that the United States was acting as a friend of both Israelis and Dulles said he made the proposals with the authority of President The move constituted an unpre cedented American bid to settle the longstanding IsraelArab conflict once and for all It was backed by other offers of U S help which could run into many millions of dollars Councils The proposals it was learned were worked out in the State De partment passed on by the Na tional Security Council and per fected in conferences with Eisen hower
