Levin 'Astonished
at.Court Suit
Filed by Leopold

Meyer Levin, author of the
best-selling novel "Compulsion,"
this week expressed "utter
astonishment" at a $1,513,000
lawsuit–filed against him by
Nathan Leopold.
Leopold, freed from prison
last year after serving 33 years
for the thrill slaying of Bobby
Franks in 1924, entered the
suit against Levin and 56 others
in Cook County's Circuit Court,
in Chicago.
Charging that Levin's novel
invaded his privacy and used
his likeness and personality for
profit and gain, Leopold named
among co-defendants the book's
publishers, a movie company
that filmed the story and theater

When he was freed from
prison, Leopold had pledged to
stay out of the limelight and
refrain from seeking publicity.
He is currently working as a
medical technician in a Puerto
Rico hospital.
Levin, upon learning of the
suit, stated, "All I can say is
that's gratitude. I think it's gen-
erally conceded that my book
got him out of prison."
The plot of the book closely
parallels the case of Leopold
and Richard Loeb, University of
Chicago students who slew the
Franks boy for a thrill. The
main character, Judd Steiner,

government sources said last
Israel post office authorities
disclosed that Morocco had re-
turned two sacks of mail ad-
dressed to Jews in Morocco
with the explanation that as a
member of the Arab League,
Morocco was required to abide
by all aspects of the League's
policies, including its anti-
Israel activities.
Israel considers the action a
flagrant violation of the postal
convention to which both coun-
tries are signatories, the
sources said, adding that the
matter may also be raised in
diplomatic actions and at the
United Nations.
Senior post office officials
said that the normal monthly
traffic between the two coun-
tries ranged from 20,000 to
30,000 pieces of mail in each
The return of. the mail
caused great anxiety among
Moroccan Jews in Israel who
were already alarmed by re-
ports of recent arrests of Jews
in Morocco and indications of
general anti-Jewish tendencies
of Moroccan authorities.
There are hardly any Moroc-
can Jews in Israel who do not
have family members still in
Morocco, many of whom wish
to emigrate but cannot because
of - the attitude of the Moroc-
can gdvernment.

ered an inhuman act. It severs
