President Arturo Frondizi
issued a special message con-
gratulating the Jews of this
country an their centennial
celebration, and emphasizing
Argentina's gratification with
the high place achieved by the
Jews here in all fields of en-
deavor. The President's message
was brought to the official an-
niversary convocation by Dr.
Alfred Roque Vitolo, Minister
of the Interior.
Others on the program, in
the crowded Great Hall of the
Buenos' Aires Jewish Com-
munity headquarters, were Dr.
Nahum G-oldmann, world Jew-
ish leader; Emilio Gutkin, presi-
dent of the Buenos Aires Jew-

Jewish Community here; and
Aryeh Levavi, Israel's Ambas-

Lauding the attitude of the
Argentine government and
people toward Jewry, and ex-
pressing his gratitude for that
"happy encounter between two
peoples, exceptionally enjoying
mutual tolerance, respect and
understanding," Dr. Goldmann
spoke of the situation in some
lands where, he sai.-1, "the Jews,
unfortunately, have not yet

Dr. Vitolo singled out for
praise the early Jewish colonial
settlers in this country who,
he said, through "their hard
work, laid the basis for Jewry's
intergration into our national
life, leading • to outstanding
Jewish contributions in litera-
ture, science and the democratic
ways of political activity."
Referring to last winter's
outbreak of anti-Semitic inci-
dents, the Interior • Minister
declared: "Our people and gov-
ernment repudiated these in-
cidents energetically, and •im-
mediately took steps to deal
with these barbarities. We are
solidly with you. Argentina
opens its doors to Jewish im-
migrants. Yoh enjoy sympathy
and friendship."
