Mussolini's residence. It was

The delegates condemned the
recent swastika epidemic, which
they blamed on neo-Nazi ele-
ments in West Germany, and
warned that Nazi anti-Semitic
and racist propaganda "consti-
tutes a threat to all peace-lov-
ing peoples."
T h e conference expressed
concern at the extent of the
swastika outbreaks in countries
where organizations with Nazi
tendencies exist and have been
strengthened by collaboration
with Hitlerite refugees.
One session was enlivened by
a clash between Guido Lopez,
representative of the Milan
Jewish Community, and Vassily
Kozlov, a member of the five-
man delegation from the Soviet

tor of the Jewish Community
Council, summarized actions
that were taken locally in pro-
test against the Navy's use of
the so-called "Haifa Clause,"
which barred contracts with
any carriers which had done
business with Israel.
At the request of the Coun-
cil, the Navy's practice was
made the subject of an inquiry
by several members of the
Michigan Congressional delega-
tion. Representatives Broom-
field, Cederberg, Dingell, Grif-
fiths, Lesinski, O'Hare and Ra-
baut communicated with the
Navy Department. The Military

arm of the Navy responsible
for the contracts, initially de-

Starts March 16

The 1960 Windsor Welfare
Fund Campaign will have its
official opening next Wednes-
day, when 90 enrolled volun-
teers will commence solicita-
tion in the men's division.
At a recent meeting, ad-
dressed by Jacques Torczyner,
national vice president of the

cent increases.
Melvin Sorffer, vice president
of Windsor's Jewish Commun-
ity Council, is chairman of this
year's campaign. His associate
chairmen are Harry R.
Schwartz, Sidney Lazarus and
William Silver.

The Russian delegate leaped'

to his feet to deny this. He

the assembly that
Soviet laWs "severely punish"
anti-Semitism and he said the
trial of the MoSeew doctors was
not solely anti-Semitic since
many non-Jewish doctors were
involved as well. He accused
Lopez of attempting to provoke
quarrels among the delegates.
The Israel delegate Ada Se-
reni, addressing the conference,
expressed hope that the Soviet
government would soon grant to
Jews in the Soviet Union the
same cultural and linguistic
rights as other nationalities en-
joy there.
Attending the conference were
delegates from Italy, France,
West Germany, Austria, Great
Britain, Greece, the Soviet
Union, Poland, Hungary, East
Germany and Czechoslovakia.
The Italian Federation of
Freedom Fighters announced a
boycott of the conference, and
