Israel border policeman was re-
turned here after spending four
years in a Jordanian prison.
Moshe Binyamin was seized
by the Jordanians when he
crossed the border four years
ago, and sentenced to 17 years
imprisonment as a "spy." Israel
had demanded his release im-
mediately after he was arrested,
but he was held.
A Jordanian infiltrator, serv-
ing a long sentence in Israel,
was returned to Jordan at the
same time. Israel police are
now investigating the circum-
stances of Binyamin's crossing
of the border.
Israel coastal poli -ce this
week arrested four Lebanese
who were fishing illegally, in
Israel waters. The fishermen
were using explosives, which
are barred by Israel law.
When captured, the four
claimed there were no fish in
Lebanese waters and, since they
were hungry, they chose to fish
in Israel waters. The police,
who view with gravity the con-
tinuous practice by Lebanese
of using explosives in Israel
waters, will demand severe pun
ishment for the violators to -de-

It was in 1889 when the first
group of Eastern European
Jews came to Buenos Aires
aboard the S.S. Weser, settling
in a newly-established agricul-
tural colony, named Moisesville,
in Santa Fe province. The 136
settlers were all from the
Ukrainian section of Czarist

the representative body of Ar-
