Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta ISRAEL: A Flame Rekindled VII. The you, go among the (Arab refugees) in the hills of Judea, they mill take you by the arm to a -crest of land and point downwards, across the rusty skeins of barbed wrirc. "Can you see there beside those trees? That is my home." ChUders, in 1961. Had the 1948 Arab-Israeli war been merely one of army against army, it could be argued that there might not have been a second war, or a third. The nearly one-million Arab residents of Palestine were in essence the third party to the war; they were locked between th0 Arab- Israeli vise. After the passage of years, ft is dif- ficult to reconstruct what happened to the Arabs of Palestine, caught tip in the swirling conflict of 1948. In the judgment of the American Friends Service Committee, "most of those who fled did so out of the perfectly human tendency to panic in the face of warfare and to flee from the fighting." The Palestinians fled to Lebanon, to Syria, to the West Bank of Jordan, to the Gaza Strip. Of the Arabs in Palestine, only remained (in Israel) after the war. Since that time, a new generation of Palestinians has been born, and they are also refugees, living a mar- ginal existence in squalid camps, eating food supplied by the U.N. Relief and works Agency, clinging to a dimmed hope that they will one day return to Palestine, a land which technically -no longer exists. To the lefugees, there are two indisputable facts: (1) they have not been allowed to go home, and (2) they have not been able to re- claim or gain compensation for the properties they lost. These basic realities are the funda- mental source of their bitterness. And this bitterness has spawned the Palestine Liberation Organization, the El Fatah, the September movement and other groups which, aided and abetted by Arab states, have continued a reign of terror in the Holy Land, a reign has touched distant areas of the earth. According to U.N. officials, more than 60 per cent of the Arab refugees have found new homes and jobs in the host states (although, only one, Jordan, grants citizenship) and have been in- corporated into local economies. But the re- maining Arabs are, for the most part, the elderly, the very poor, the widows and orphans who are difficult to incorporate in a largely subsistance and traditional agriculture. No state today claims responsibility for the refugees. are, as Jewish refugees once were, a homeless people. The Arab states have not tempted to resettle refugees to any significant degree because, both refugees and governments say, successful resettlement would help the Is- raelis and the world forget the injustice done to the Palestinians and to accept a large-scale fait accompli. That the refugees have been used as pawns is undeniable. What is the fate of the Arab refugees? Mid. die East specialist Albert Hourani suggests that ''in the long run it may be in Israel's interest to grant the refugees the right of return or com- pensation for only as a mixed state has it a chance of being accepted by its neighbors. But in the short run, the desire for security and for further immigration works against it. It seems more likely than not that Israel will do nothing."

The study by MeKinsey and Co., Inc., a Toronto manage- ment consulting firm, is one of a series commissioned by the Canada Council to assess the status and problems facing each of the performing arts in Canada. There are 15 professional dance companies in Canada- five ballet, nine modern and one folk. The ballet and modern dance groups operate out of Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, or Vancouver. Can- ada's only professional folk dance troupe Les Feux Toi- its home in Char- lottetown. The report says that in the 1970-71 season, professional dance companies were left hold- ing the bag for a total of million worth of costs not cov- ered by box office returns, gov- ernment grants or donations. FUTURE BLEAK The future promised to be even bleaker a 5-miiHion to- tal deficit projected for 1974-75 and a shortcoming in dance com- panies took steps to attract big- ger audiences and lowered their costs through better marketing and management techniques. Dancers are poorly paid, so cost cuts cannot be directed to- wards salaries, says the report. Modern damcers earned an av- erage income of a year, while ballet dancers reportedly averaged annually. Dance groups must acquaint themselves with what is avail- able in from the government and from private organization and how to go about applying for money, the study advises. To build bigger audiences, the study says, more effort must be made to acquaint the public with dance as a performing art. This could be done by luring more people to the box office and by ensuring that when they came to a performance, they would be exposed to a first-rate demonstration.
