Israeli Veteran
Pleads Guilty
to Spy Charge

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — A 28-
year-old Israeli, who served in
the Israel Army and later be-
came a government official, was
charged with espionage for an
unnamed country, after confess-
ing to police that he was engag-
ed in spying for a foreign na-
tion.
Explaining that he did it for
family reasons, the Israeli, who
is married and has a child two
months old, indicated that, un-
able to bring his parents to
Israel under the "reunion of
families" scheme, he contacted
a foreign legation here and pro-
posed his services on condition
that his parents would be per-
mitted to emigrate to Israel
from the country which the le-
gation represents.
Neither_ the name of the ar-
rested man, nor the name of the
country for which he worked
was disclosed.
The defendant came to Israel
eight years ago. He studied elec-
tronics in the country from
which he emigrated. Upon ar-
riving in Israel, he joined the
Israel Army. Later he became
a government official.
. He said that he started his
contacts with the foreign lega-
tion in 1956 on his own initi-
ative. He has been known by
his neighbors as a quiet, friend-
ly person and a good father and
husband.

COLUMBUS, Ga. (JTA)—An
18-year-old youth who professes
the idology of Adolf Hitler
and boasts of his hatred of
the _Jews, was being held this
week on arson charges in con-
nection with the fire which
destroyed paintings valued at
$50,000 in the Columbus Mu-
seum of Arts and Crafts.
The walls of the museum
and of two Columbus syna-
gogues were smeared with
Nazi swastikas in ink, charcoal
and yellow paint.
Columbus police identified
the arrested suspect as Rich-
ard Smith, also known as Rich-
ard Renka, who moved here
recently from Atlanta.
Chief of Police E. F. Mon-
crieff said the youth admitted
setting the fire and smearing
the swastikas on the walls of
the edifices. The youth was
booked on arson charges.
Immediately after the crime,
the City of Columbus posted a
$1,000 reward for the appre-
hension of the culprits. Gov .
Ernest Vandiver of Georgia,
terming the vandalism a "de-
mented act," added $500.
