LONDON, (WJA) — A tele-

ROME, (JTA) — Measures to
protect the "free profession of
religious faith" in Italy were in-
cluded in draft revisions of
the Italian penal code prepared
for consideration by the Italian
Cabinet.
The proposed measures pro-
vide prison sentences on con-
viction for attempts "to pre-
vent others from professing a
, religious faith either in public
or in private" or to attempt by
force or threat of force to com-
pel anyone to perform acts in
violation. of their religious be-
liefs.
These measures represent an
innovation as there is no exist-
ing law covering this area. They
were incorporated in " wide-
spread revisions of the Italian
penal code known as the Codice
Rocco, which was promulgated
during the ,Mussolini regime.
About one-fifth„ of the code is
subject to revision.

CLEVELAND — Mrs. Golda
Meir, Israel's Foreign Minister,
on Monday, urged American
Jewish youth to go to Israel to
help build the country with
"the blessings of their parents."
She spoke at a luncheon ses-
sion of the 16th biennial con-
vention of Pioneer Women.
, Describing the problems of
"education for democracy," in
Israel's ever-growing population
as "overwhelming," Mrs. Meir
said their solution needed not
only funds but manpower from
the free countries.
She was honored at the lunch-
eon for 30 years of service to
Israel.
The '600 delegates attending
the convention passed a reso-
lution calling on the U. S. Gov-
ernment to support measures to
halt the Arab boycott against
American citizens and the black-
listing of American firms.
The resolution hailed action
in the U. S. Senate incorporat-
ing the Morse anti-bias alriend-
meat in the Mutual Security
Appropriations Bill.
Another resolution called for
"the most vigorous action" by
the U. S. Government and the
United Nations to bring the
"intolerable aggression" of the
United Arab Republic against
Israel to an end. It demanded
reaffirmation of the principle
of unobstructed passage through
the Suez Canal for the ships of
all nations.
The parley expressed appre-
ciation for continued American
aid to Israel. Earlier, delegates
attended ceremonies at the Cul-
tural Gardens where the organi-
zation presented a bronze plaque
to the City of Cleveland.
The women approved a two-
year $2,000,000 goal far social
welfare and educational services
in Israel and a five-year $1,000,.
000 building fund.
The latter fund will permit
extension of facilities through
Israel, especially in the new im-
migrant settlements. Three proj-
ects were undertaken: a voca-
tional school for girls at Beer-
sheba; a home economics school
at Nachlat Yehudah; and acqui-
sition of buildings in Haifa for
home economics courses.
