Seizing of Israel Cargo at Suez
Starts Flurry of Diplomatic Action

r-

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion met
successively with Russian Am-
bassador Mikhail Bodorov and
American Charge d'Affairs Wil-
liam Baxter in a burst of diplo-
matic activity sparked by a
dispute between the captain
of the Inge Toft and United
Arab Republic officials on the
fate of an Israel cargo on the
detained ship.
The dispute developed when
the captain rejected orders
of the Egyptian "War Prize
Court" to unload the cargo
of cement, potash and leather

Conference Warns
of Claims Deadline

NEW YORK (JTA)—Organ-
izations seeking • grants from
the Conference on Jewish Ma-
terial Claims Against Germany
were reminded by the Confer-
ence that those groups seeking
allocations for the year 1960
must file their applications not
later than June 30, 1959.
The reminder noted that the
applications must be submitted
in 20 copies to the New York
headquarters of the Confer-
ence. They must contain a de-
tailed description of the ac-
tivities for which the funds are
requested, and must include
budgetary data as well as in-
formation on other sources of
income which may be available
to the applicants for the proj-
ects in question.
The Claims Conference, by
the terms of the Agreement it
had concluded with the Fed-
eral Republic of Germany, is
able to . allocate funds only for
those activities which contrib-
ute to the relief, rehabilitation
and resettlement of Jewish vic-
tims of Nazi persecution, in ac-
cordance with the urgency of
need.

Tunisian Constitution
Safeguards Jews

PARIS (JTA) — The new
Tunisian constitution, promul-
gated in Tunisia June 1, just
received here, contains several
clauses protecting basic human
rights and of particular interest
to the Jews of Tunisia.
One article declares that
every citizen has the right to
circulate freely in Tunisia;
also to leave the country. An-
other clause guarantees that
no citizen can be expatriated
or forbidden to return to the
country.
The constitution guarantees
liberty of opinion, expression,
press, assembly and association,
and one clause specifically
guarantees "the dignity of the
individual and freedom of con-
science?'

BONN (JTA) — "The fight
against discrimination and pre-
judice—the nourishing ground
of anti-Semitism—has not yet
been won" in West Germany,
Theodor Heuss, President of the
West German Republic, ad-
mitted during an interview here
with Dr. Kurt Grossman, Amer-
ican expert on Jewish claims
against Germany.
"I would welcome all activ-
ities which will aid in liquidat-
ing this horrible heritage," he
said. Mr. Grossman had com-
plained that German indemni-
fication officials had decided
affirmatively in only 59 per cent
of claims during the past year.
Formerly the average was about
71 per cent, he said.
In a ceremony on Tuesday,
Dr. Heuss presented a check
for 100,000 deutschemarks to
the Mayor of Amsterdam, Hol-
land, as West Germany's con-
tribution toward the Anne
Frank House, which is being
constructed on Prinzengraacht,
at Amsterdam.

Society of America, announcing
the appearance of volume 60 of
the American Jewish Year
Book, covering the year 1958,
said that, as usual, the compila-
tion and the editorial work
were done by the American
Jewish Committee under the
editorship of Morris Fine and
Milton Himmelfarb.
The book contains statistics
and summaries of events all
over the world: Jewish popula-
tion statistics, immigration fig-
ures, reports on the civic and
political status of the Jews in
various parts of the world, the
list of national Jewish organiza-
tions, of federations and wel-
fare funds, as well as biblio-
graphical material, necrologies
and calendars.

pended.

The book is an invaluable
source of information for ev-
erything connected with the
Jewish people and the Jewish
religion in every part of the
world, including Israel.

The new Year Book contains
valuable data on organizational
expansion of our religious or-
ganizations and a noteworthy
study of programs and finances
in Jewish communal services.

Meir Ben Horin is the
author of another significant
study—"Some Recent Trends
in Jewish Educational
Thought."

Aid for Romanian Jews

JERUSALEM (JTA) —Three
members of the West German
Parliament who are visiting
Israel promised a delegation
of Jews formerly resident in
Romania that they would call
the attention of the West Ger-
man authorities to the com-
pensation claims of some
50,000 former Romanian resi-
dents here for losses and in-
juries suffered under the Nazi
regime. -
The German deputies re-
ceived a deputation represent-
ing these people here today
and heard its appeal for speedy
action by the West German
authorities on claims estimated
to total $50,000,000. The depu-
tation pointed out that the
claimants were mainly aged
and infirm persons whose hold-
ings, valuables and cash had
been seized from them during
the Nazi occupation.
