Turkey Probes
Bigots' Writings

ISTANBUL, (JTA)—Istanbul
authorities were investigating
the publication of two books of
anti-Semitic character a f ter
protests were made by the
Jewish community here.
One book, "Turks, Here Is
Your Enemy," was written by
Cevat Rifat Atilhan, a noto-
rious anti-Semite. The cover il-
lustration portrays Turkish sol-
diers pointing their bayonets at
a Mogen David.
The other, "Ideas on the Edu-
cation of Turkish Boys," was
written by Suleyman Oz, an of-
ficial of the Istanbul Educa-
tion Department. It contains
anti-Semitic„ propaganda.
At the same time local news-
papers came out with critical
comments against the use of
Ladino and French in resort
places by Turkish Jews. The
articles, by writers who are
not anti-Semitic, complained
that Jews continued to refuse
to speak Turkish.
One newspaper also claimed
that Jews were heavily patron-
izing the best hotels and clubs
at summer resorts. 'Another
newspaper asserted that Jews
were showing off their wealth,
while the rest of the nation
faced economic difficulties.

Wins Post by Big Vote

PARIS, (JTA)—Sen. Fernand
Auberger, whose election as
mayor of a small French town
was annulled by the ,courts' be-
cause of his introduction of ra-
cial issues in his campaign
against his Jewish opponent,
was re-elected to the post, by
an even greater majority, when
new elections were held.
Henry Torres, noted French
barrister and head of the ad-
ministrative council of the
French radio and television, in
a broadcast, called on the
French Senate to disqualify
The annullment of Auberger's
election as mayor and a fine
imposed on him for violation
of the election laws, repre-
sented the first time the new
legislation barring appeals to
racial or religious bias in elec-
tions had been invoked. There
were no indications whether
the authorities- would act to
annul Auberger's re-election to
the mayoralty.
