tion of the Refugee Relief Act from State Departrnent security

law. The bill is identical with one , introduced in the Senate by
Mr. Lehman. Rep. Davidson called the act a "fraud" . . . A recent

Jacob J. Javits advised. the ADL he had declined to address the
educators because "State policy against: exclusion of any person.
from places of public accommodation due te race, creed • or color is
a vital law enforcement obligation to me, and I• want to do every-
thing I can .to see that it is honored, not only in letter but in
spirit." . . Israel is pioneering hi showing how to help people
,lrom underdeveloped countries to enter the atomic age, Mrs.

The national executive board of 'the Union of American Hebrew

Pointing to "new prospects" for an easing of international ten-
sions, Dr: Emanuel Neumann, ' chairman of the national executive
committee of the ZOA, declared here: "To the extent to which the
fear of Soviet aggression in the Middle East is reduced, our gov-
ernment may be expected to adopt a sounder and more reasonable
policy in that region, based .upon the underlying realities, and
help to effectuate a just an lasting peace." . .'Tribute to the
late Prof. Albert Einstein was paid here at a huge memorial meet-
ing sponsored by major. Jewish organizations. Ambassador Eban
disclosed that in -a-lconversation few days before his death
Einstein expressed deep sympathy for Israel and anxiety lest her
security be impaired by 'international policies not stemming from
O. moral premise . . • David J. Levy, attorney for Einstein's family
and for the estate executor announced that the scientist's remains
"have now been privately, finally and irrevocably disposed of, in
conformity with the wishes of Professor Einstein." The details, he
said, "should not be of public interest, for the ultimate fact is
that no physical traces are left anywhere."

racial origin and religion of prospective immigrants play no part in
selection, accoD.ing to Federal MM. of. Citizenship and Immigra-
tion Pickersgill. He was replying to •a Conservative Party critic
who deplored the decline of British immigration into Canada. A
Liberal Party member urged accelerated immigration, declaring
