Mrs. Golda Myerson, only woman on the thirty-seven member council of the new state of Israel, arriving at La Guardia Field at 1-30 p. m. yesterday from Haifa by way of Paris on a Trans World Airline plane, predicted an early end to the war in Palestine.

Mrs. Myerson, who represents the Jewish Agency in the administration of Jerusalem, would not predict how soon the war would end, but said that if the United States lifted its embargo and modern weapons of war were shipped to Palestine, “we can drive the Arabs out in a few weeks.”

She was wearing a navy blue crushed linen summer sulk with a light blue and white striped silk blouse. She said she reached Paris by chartered plane from Haifa and then boarded the T. W. A. ship. Mrs. Myerson explained that the spelling of her name in Palestine is Golda, which she preferred to the American version of Goldie.

The Palestinian Arabs, Mrs. Myerson said, were not fighting the Jews. Most of the trouble arises from the invasion and infiltration in Palestine by Egyptian. Syrlan and other Arabs. The Jews, she said, were prepared to end the war the minute the Arabs show a willingness to halt the shooting and recall their invasion forces. The Jews, she said, by the same token would be willing to yield to the Arabs the Arab territory which Haganah had taken as part of the fighting.

The one indemnity the Jews would seek, she said, was the cost of the destruction which the Arabs have caused within Israel.

Her visit to the United States, Mrs. Myerson said, Will last less than a month. Its purpose is two fold, she said- to enlist the support of both Jews and the American government for a Jewish victory in the war, and to get financial aid for the permanent economic development of Palestine.

As part of her campaign for support she will speak Saturday night at a special conference of the United Jewish Appeal at the Astor.
