JUSTICE FREEDMAN

Catholic Bishop
Hails Progress
Made by Israel

LONDON, Ont., (JTA) — A
Catholic bishop, urging Ca-
nadian Jews to support the Is-
rael Bond campaign, has as-
serted that "Israel has eagerly
taken up the challenge to make
the deserts bloom again."
Speaking at the annual Is-
rael Bond dinner here, Rev.
John C. Cody, Bishop of Lon-
don, Ontario, said that Israel,
"with the aid of its children of
the diaspora and using the
scientific discoveries of this
wonder age, will assuredly win
the battle of restoration and
conceivably bring the country
to a higher level than ever be-
fore."
He recounted that an Israel
government official who helped
to show him places of Israel
"was amazingly frank in point-
ing out that some of Israel's
laws, such as those pertaining
to marriage between a Jew and
a Christian, would need to be
amended in order to do full
justice to all concerned."
The Bishop, who did not
identify the Israel official, said
that the official had given as-
surance that Prime Minister
David Ben-Gurion "was deter-
mined, once he had a sufficient
majority in the Knesset, to re-
move defects caused by various
extremists."
Touching on an Issue on
which the Vatican favors a posi-
tion opposed by Israel, inter-
nationalization of all Jerusalem,
Bishop Cody told the Israel
Bond dinner guests that as far
as the Holy Places were con-
cerned, "with the lessening of
tensions I do not despair of
both Jordan and Israel finding
a way to guarantee permanent-
ly full liberty of access for pil-
grims of all persuasions, per-
haps through the good offices
of the United Nations."
He listed six reasons why
Canadian Jews should buy
Israel Bonds: "love of your
religious traditions and ours;
love of your homeland; love of

liament started an investigation
into the "scandalous back-
ground" of the case of Dr. Wer-
ner Heyde, who served on the
Nazi "euthanasia staff" until
1941. During the postwar Nur-
emberg doctors' trial for war
crimes, Dr. Heyde had been
charged in absentia with the
murder of many political and
Jewish concentration camp in-
mates.
He was arrested recently in
Flensburg, where he had built
up a medical practice and
served as official medical ad-
visor to Flensburg courts un-
der an assumed name, Fritz
Schwade. The decision to name
the committee followed sharp
criticism in the Schleswig-
Holstein Parliament by Social
Democrats who charged that
government officials had known
about Heyde's past and had not
opposed his appointment as
court medical advisor. Heyde is
now in Wuerzburg prison await-
ing trial.
Dr. Ernst Siegfried Nuresch,
the highest judge in the Schles-
wig-Holstein Social Court, was
under suspension this week for
his part in the case.
The Administrative Court, an-
nouncing his suspension, said
he had been accused of know-
ing since December 1954 that
Dr. Schwade was actually Dr.
Heyde.
The Social Democratic oppo-
sition in the Schleswig-Holstein-
Parliament meanwhile demand-
ed that the Parliamentary com-
mittee named to investigate the
Heyde affair, should also inves-
tigate recent government pro-
posals to fill the post of Par-
liamentary administrative di-
rector.

cabinet had given Parliament a
