Prince Philip Warns of Dangers
of Anti-Semitism in Great Britain

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON — The Duke of
Edinburgh warned here Monday
night that if anti-Semitism
should gain the upper hand in
Britain, "the jungle would be
upon us." He made the state-
ment in an address before 1,300
Jewish leaders celebrating the
bicentennary of the Board of
Deputies of British Jews, which
was founded in 1760.
The British people in general,
said the husband of Queen
Elizabeth II, "have adopted a
democratic attitude toward the
Jewish minority in their midst,
but prejudice does sometimes
break through."
Calling for a deepening of
the "democratic attitude,"
Prince Philip recalled "the ter-
rible persecution suffered by
the Jewish people under the
Nazis," and asserted: "It is ter-
ribly easy to get the worst out
of people. But constant work
is needed to bring out the
best."
The Duke recalled the Jew-
ish community's services to
Britain, particularly in the
fields of science, art, education
and entertainment, and pointed
out that "thousands of Jewish
soldiers gave their lives toward
the defense of Great Britain."
He paid high tribute to the
work of the Board of Deputies.
Among the messages to the
bicentennial dinner were spe-
cial greetings from Queen Eliza-
beth, Prime Minister Harold
MacMillan and Sir Winston
Churchill. Representatives of
all British political parties were
at the event, as were many of
the country's eminent scientists,
writers and artists.
Gratitude for Britain's wel-
come of the Jewish people was
expressed by Barnett Janner,
president of the board, and by
