THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS -- Friday, April 17,

Governor Williams Absent from Africa
Day Celebration Which Banned Israel

Direct JTA Teletype Wire
To The Jewish News

Three governors and the Mayor
of New York absented them-
selves Wednesday from the dip-
lomatic reception celebrating
African Freedom Day from
which Israel alone among the
members of the United Nations
had been excluded at the insis-
tence of the Arab bloc.
The pr omin en t absentees
were New York Governor Nel-
son A. Rockefeller, Connecticut
Governor Abraham Ribicoff,
Michigan Governor G. Mennen
Williams and New York Mayor
Robert F. Wagner. The diplo-
matic reception without Israel
and minus these four prominent
Americans was held at the
Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Israel, however, was also in-
vited and was represented at
the second important event cele-
brating African Freedom Day
observed at Carnegie Hall
Wednesday night. The evening
event conducted by the Ameri-
can. Committee on Africa had
invited all Asian and African
member states as guests of
A number of United Nations
delegates from non-Arab Afri-
can states showed embarrass-
ment over Israel's exclusion
from the diplomatic list for the

afternoon reception. The com-
mittee of nine delegations in
charge of the afternoon event
consisted of representatives
from the United Arab Republic,
Sudan, Morocco, Tunis, Libya,
Ghana, Ethiopia, Guinea and Li-
beria. Israel has excellent rela-
tions with the four non-Arab
states in this group.
In answer to a question about
the afternoon event, a spokes-
man for the Israel delegation
stated here Wednesday:
"Israel has not been invited
for the simple reason that five


of the nine countries concerned
are members of the Arab
League. The Arab League has
always pursued an intransigent
policy of boycotting Israel. The
exclusion of Israel comes from
the undue pressure which these
five states have brought to bear
an the others. It is regrettable
that the others should have
found themselves, however un-
willingly, constrained to yield to
these pressures resulting in an
act of discrimination which vi-
olates the accepted traditions of
courtesy between nations."

Believe Successor to Adenauer
Will Follow Pro-Jewish Policies

BONN, (JTA)—Political cir-
cles here expressed the belief
that Dr. Konrad Adenauer's de-
termined opposition to resur-
gent Nazism and anti-Semitism
in West Germany will be con-
tinued by his successor in the
Chancellory, which Dr. Aden-
auer will leave this summer.

Christian Democratic Party
leaders also voiced confidence
that Dr. Adenauer's strong
stand on reparations and indem-
nification of the victims of Na-
zism will be maintained by the
new Chancellor.

Adenauer's Retirement
Will Not Endanger
Reparations to Israel

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — "I do
not think that, if Dr. Konrad
Adenauer relinquishes his post
as Chancellor of Germany, there
will be danger to the imple-
ments of the German-Israel rep-
arations agreement," Dr. F. E.
Shinar, head of the Israel Repa-
rations Mission to West Ger-
many, declared in connection
with reports from Bonn that
Chancellor Adenauer will lay
down his post to seek the Fed-
eral German Presidency.
Shinar spoke at a dinner of
the Foreign Press Association
here. He said that Dr. Aden-
auer's possible successor is Dr.
Ludwig Erhard, Vice-Chancellor
and Minister of Economic Af-
fairs, whose dealings with re-
gard to reparations problems
are very encouraging from Is-
rael's point of view.
Shinar avoided making any
prediction as to who may be-
come the West German Minister
of Economic Affairs if Dr. Er-
hard should become Chancellor.
