The Balfour Declar- ation not an unsolicited generosity Brit- ain's part, but the result of strenuous efforts by Dr. Chaim Weizmann and Lord Rothschild, who we're somewhat mere than prominent British Jews. Rothschild, a member of the famous banking family, and Weizmann, a chemist developed synthetic cordite, could be persuasive, particu- larly at a time when Britain was at war and had need of both money and explosives. Dr. Weizmann, however, was under no illusions regarding the force of a piece of paper. He said that "a slate cannot be created bv decree but only by the forces of the people and in the course of generations. Even if all the govern- ments of the world -gave us a country, if would be a gift of words. But if the Jewish people will go and build Palestine, the Jewish state will be- come a reality and a fact." Chaim Weizmann did his part. He served as president of the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish Agency for Palestine and. finally, the Stale of Israel, a post he held until his death in 1952. And the Jews did build. Slowly. More land was purchased and more Jewish settlements, peopled v. ith refugees from Asian and European pogroms, began to blossom. Jews from around the world came with a dream. Many died of disease starvation. Light Jews. Black Jews. Euro- jews, Oriental Jews from North Africa, olack Jews from Ethiopia. American Jews. Thev -'reamed into Palestine armed with the hope of leaders like Weizmann and Herzl. as Weizmann had predicted, a mere declaration could not establish a nation. Besides, the British through the McMshon correspond- ence also offered guarantees of land to the Arabs. After World War I, tbe Middle East was fnb- 'ividcd by the conquering nations through a rries of treaties anchored in oil wells. The Brit- accepted Palestine, Iraq and Trans-Jordan iinder League of Nations mandates; the French -citled for Syria and Lebanon. Eventually, thers might be that "national home for the Jewish people." The Zionist emigration to Palestine did much unsettle Palestinian Arabs, who could readily ;lieve charges that the Jews had designs on ieir homes and holy places. Moreover, the egal- .larian democratic approach to government dis- turbed the traditional master-serf arrangement wealthy Arab land-owners and the Arab cllahin And a continuum of vio- -ncc. arson, bombings, anibiHip? ,-----.-'ra- inns uas launched.

Most of the approximately 500 doctors who replied they would discourage young persons in the 35-49 age group, j said the report, hardly in- j dicating "a smug satisfaction in i the rewards cf the profession, particularly among the middle- i aged respondents." The report, commis- sioned a year ago by the OJIA in an attempt to assess the pub- lic's feeling toward the medical profession, was prepared by a team of consultants under re- tired Toronto businessman Ed- ward Pickering. The study said the current "unilateral" setting of fees by the OMA "is anachronistic and no longer socially or politically defensible." Tiie report recommended a joint committee on fees with representatives of government and the medical profession. At present, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) pays 90 per cent of the OMA fee sched- fule. A doctor can bill patient directly for the rest. UP FOR DISCUSSION The findings were bssed on a i survey of 779 Ontario homes and 204 written submissions from public hearings. The re- j port will be discussed at the iOMA's annual meeting next week. i The report found that the pub- i lie's greatest concern was "fragmentation of medicine'' j which delays health services, i not health-care costs.

Two-thirds of the doctors sur- jveyed felt public respect for their profession was decreasing and only 1.9 per cent said it was increasing.

Dial 328-8861 COME HOME TO YOUR TOTAL TRANSPORTATION CENTRE By KEVIN DOYLE SAIGON (CP) Canadian servicemen with the inter- national peace supervisory force here are becoming in- creasingly concerned by the ap- parent lack of progress on their requests for increased special allowances. Maj. Gen. Duncan McAlpine, Canadian military commander, said today: "I appreciate the concern of the officers and men but I have made the appro- priate representations to Ot- tawa and I know the matter is in the appropriate hands." There is distinct resentment among many officers in the field who believe external af- fairs personnel with the Inter- national Commission of Control and Supervision (ICCS) are re- ceiving allowances two or three times as large as the pack- age originally offered the mili- tary. all very well for ex- I ternal to argue that their people j didn't join the department to i step on a landmine in Viet- nam." said a senior Canadian officer, "but then we didn't, join the forces to fly around unarmed in helicopters that arc being fired at." SEEK EQUAL PAY Gen. McAlpine said the armed forces are supposed to receive rates of pay and allow- ances comparable to those paid j throughout the public service. "We basically are asking for equal pay for equal he in an interview. i So far, the servicemen have received no extra allowances because the treasury board ap- parently is unable to find an ac- ceptable figure for the pay- j menls.
