JERUSALEM.-A group of 80
determined Moslem bachelors,
led by a political science gradu-
ate, Salam Massarveh, opened
a campaign in Israel Wednes-
day to bring about a reduction
in the "mohar," the traditional
price paid by the Moslem bride-
groom to the bride's father.
Massarveh said . that in the
original Moslem tradition the
payment was merely symbolic
and usually was equivalent to
the value of the wedding ring.
In recent years, he said, the
payment has become "prohibit-
ively high" and a major source
of income to the father of the
The bachelors intend to seek
a legal ceiling on the "mohar"
and to make it payable to the
bride, not to her father.

men, responsible governmental
leaders and statesmen, and
many organizations around the
world counter-attacked on the
anti-Semitism that has plagued
the world since the Christmas
Eve desecration of a synagogue
in Cologne, Germany.
Osservatore Romano and the
Vatican Radio assailed anti-
Semitism in sharpest tones
over the weekend. "Anti-
Semitism is both hatred and
fear," stated the Catholic or-
gans. "Both' are irrational. Both,
if collectively incited, are sin-
ister manifestations in which
the individual conscience is
overcome by irresponsible pres-
sures and collective folly."

The Vatican organs warned
"people, particularly certain
young elements, against the
resurgence of deplorable ra-
cist fire."

The Rome Municipal Council
adopted a resolution today ex-
pressing "solidarity with Jew-
ish victims of racial persecu-
tion." A Social Democratic
member of Italy's parliament,
Deputy Flavio Orlandi, inquired
of the government as 'to
whether it had taken steps
against instigators of anti-
Semitic attacks and whether it
was trying to ascertain whether
"a racist organization, with
ramifications abroad was re-
sponsible for the outbreaks."
In Norway, the Protestant
bishops and the most important
lay Christian organizations is-
sued a statement condemning
the "very serious and danger-
ous things" happening now and
asserting that "all must be done
to stop these demonstrations
and eradicate these tendencies."
Brazilian President Juscelino
Kubitschek visited the Rio de
Janeiro home for aged Jewish
victims of Nazism, which van-
dals had smeared with the
swastika last week. Minister of
Justice Armando Falcao assured
a delegation_ of the Confedera-
tion of Brazilian Jewish Com-
munities that the authorities
would vigorously suppress anti-
Jewish manifestations. Cardinal
Don Jaime de Barros Camara,
head of the Roman Catholic
Church in Brazil, • broadcast a
sharp- condemnation of the anti-
Semitic manifestations.
Rio de Janeiro police estab-
lished a 24-hour watch over the
36 Jewish institutions in the
city. The Brazilian- Students
Union petitioned the govern-
ment to introduce special legis-
lation barring anti-Semitism.
In Peru, newspapers ex-
pressed indignation and con-
demned the revival of Nazi anti-
Semitic manifestations through-
out the world after the appear-
ance here of the swastika
In Santiago de Chile, Foreign
Minister German Vergara said
the Ministry of the Interior
would apply strictly all laws
"for the protection of internal
security." The police authori-
ties, he said, "must make it
clear to all that Nazism is a
philosophy of dictatorship which
we will not tolerate in Chile."
In Mexico - City, the Roman
Catholic Archbishop condemned
anti-Semitic vandalism, and said
"the Church must fight with all
its powers every expression of
race hatred."
Meetings commemorating Jew-
ish martyrs of Nazism and fas-
cism were held in many cities,
from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to
Rome, Stockholm and Brussels.

the anti-Semitic incidents as a
danger to the Jewish commun-
ity in the Netherlands.
At Montreal, U. S. Senator
Jacob K. Javits, of New York,
addressing a convention of the
Canadian Hadassah and Wom-
en's International Zionist Or-
ganization, viewed the current'
anti-Semitic incidents as "a
kind of chain reaction by ultra
right-wing elements in different
countries, set off by the neo-
Nazi spark in Germany." He
warned that the incidents
"tound a warning, not only to
Jews, but to people of all faiths
that we dare not dismiss except
at our own peril."

Among the powerful edi-
torials of the week in con-
demnation of .anti-Semitism
and the swastika - painting
craze were the statements in
The Pilot of Boston and Com-
monweal of New York, both
An appeal to all Americans

to repudiate anti-Jewish mani-
festations as "the work of
minds that are making religion
a target" was made by the Na-
tional Conference of Christians
and Jews in a statement issued
by Dr. Lewis Webster Jones,
president of the organization.
A g r o u.p of distinguished
Protestant leaders today de-
nounced outbreaks of anti-
Semitism in this country and
Europe and offered fullest sym-
pathy to world Jewry.
In a statement that ques-
tioned whether the outbreaks
are "simply isolated acts," the
church leaders declared:
"We pledge our support and
friendship to the Jewish com-
munities of the world and we
pray that all Christians in
America will join in this pledge
and act upon it."
The statement was issued by
21 church leaders, among them
heads of denominations, a num-
ber of bishops, heads of inter-
church agencies within Protes-
tant and prominent pastors and
evangelists, including Dr. Billy
Graham, Dr. Norman Vincent
Peale, Dr. Robert MacCracken
and Dr. Ralph Sockman, the
latter three all of New York.
Sir Leslie Plummer, Labor
member of the British House
of Commons, announced he
would introduce a bill to im-
pose jail sentences up to six
months on persons who were
caught painting swastikas on

In Russia there was silence
for a week on the events in
Germany, but finally edi-

gan to appear in Soviet news-
papers contending that the

pranks of cranks but were
evidence of a resurgent fas-
cism caused by West German

commander of the Jewish War
Veterans, in a statement on the

munity relations groups in fight-
ing the menace. He warned
against over - magnification of
the issues by the press.
Joseph F. Barr, JWV na-
tional executive director, ex-
pressed satisfaction over the
strong stand against the bigots
by national veterans groups and
commended National Com-
mander Martin B. McKneally

Swastika Dauber Apologizes
to South African Rabbi
man who admitted painting
swastikas on the walls of the

synagogue in Muizenberg, Cape
Province, called on the rabbi
and apologized for his action,
the rabbi disclosed today.
Rabbi Jacob Weinberg said
the man first telephoned him
to apologize. He invited -the
man to come to his home to
discuss the matter. "After hear-
ing his story," the rabbi said, -
"I decided to say nothing

Newspapers, including organs
of the Nationalist Government,
in editorials today condemned
the anti-Jewish excesses in this
country. Die Vaderland, lead-
ing Afrikaans daily, said today
that the South African Jewish
community can be assured that
there is "not the slightest dan-
ger of any anti-Jewish cam-
paign of any significance here."

87 tombstones at the Baron de
Hirsch Cemetery in Staten Is-

hower issued a warning against
the spread of bigotry and de-
clared that the virus of preju-
dice must not be permitted to

message to the American Jew-
ish Congress.

In a letter of guidance to
Jewish War Veterans' Post Com-
manders throughout the coun-
try, National Commander Ber-
nard Abrams of Jersey City,
N. J., has indicated that part of
the blame for the current wave
of anti-Semitic attacks "must be
borne by Americans for having
concentrated all of our •atten-
tion on anti-Communism, com-
pletely forgetting. that totali-
tarianism, whether of the left or
right, is equally objectionable
and that when we relax our
guard on either one, it is cer-
tain that the growth and spread
of the other will be encouraged
by the forces of subversion. Our
thinking has been so obsessed
with opposition to Communism
that little or no attention has
been paid to the development of
Fascist or Nazi groups, in
Europe or elsewhere."
