JERUSALEM.—Positive aspects of the reorganiza-
tion of the Jewish Agency for Israel. in New York were
outlined Monday by Dr. Nahum Goldmann in a report
to the Israel members of the Zionist Actions Commit-
Dr. Goldmann cited a number of benefits, forsee-
'able inclusion of wider . circles in Jewish Agency
activities and responsibilites in fund raising.
He also reviewed the progress of negotiations for
enlargement of the World Zionist Organization by inclu-
sion of non-Zionist organizations. He said that federa-
tions of Jewish communities in some of the most im-
portant South American countries had already agreed
to join. In the United States, he said two of the most im-
portant Jewish organizations had accepted an invitation
to send."fraternaldelegations" to the next World Zion-
ist Congress. They will participate in debates . but will
not have voting rights.

of the Israel Cabinet and the Jewish Agency Executive

Zionist Organization by widening it and by implementa-
ton of an agreement on the status of the Zionist body.

Chili Jewish Communities.
Hard Hit by Earthquakes

SANTIAGO DE CHILE. (JTA)—The Jewish com-
munities of Southern Chile have been hard hit by the
series of devastating earthquakes that hit that area but,
as of today, central Jewish agencies here have not had
word of any loss of Jewish lives. -
The property losses of the Jewish community in
Valdivia have been heavy. Damage was not so great at
Concepcion and Temuco. No word has yet been re-
ceived from the community at Puerto Monte because
communications with that city have been disrupted.
The Santiago Jewish community has set up an
emergency committee and already has raised $10,000.

The arrest by Israel intelligence agents of Adolf Eichmann, the arch-criminal
who organized the deportation of European Jews for their extermination in gas
chambers during the Hitler regime, has resulted in arrest of many more Nazis
and the epose of Nazi plots.
It was reported this week from Bonn that Adolf Heinz Beckerle, who was
police chief in Frankfurt from 1933 to 1941, . has been, rearrested on murder
charges and of complicity of the murder of 11,000 to 12,000 Greek Jews from
Macedonia and Thrace in the Treblinka concentration camp.
More arrests were predicted by Fritz Bauer, Hesse. -' Chief Prosecutor, who
suggested that the extradition of Eichmann may be requested ."if only as a dem-
onstration of Germany's good intentions to overcome the past. But since there are
no agreements for extraditions between West Germany and Israel, which do not:
have diplomatic relations, such action is considered unlikely.

Find Treasure of 4,000 Old Coins in International. Neo-Nazi Group
Druse Village of Isifiya on Carmel Uncovered in Raid Near Frankfurt

Direct JTA Teletype Wire to The Jewish News

TEL AVIV = A buried treasure containing more than 4,000
ancient coins has been unearthed in the. Druse village of Isifiya on
Mount Carmel, it was reported here Tuesday. The coins are believed
to be the proceeds of a tax collected by Jewish communities in
Phoenicia in 67 CE and were to be sent to the •Temple treasury in
Jerusalem, according to Dr. Leo Kadman, curator of the Haaretz
Museum here.
Dr. Kadman, numismatic expert, said that the treasure was ap-
parently buried when a Jerusalem-bound tax collectors' caravan en-
countered Roman troops blocking the way to Jerusalem.
The officer in charge of the caravan decided to bury the treasure
until after the war which ended with the destruction of the Temple
by the Romans .three years later.
The theory was based according to Dr. Kadman on the uniform
issue and quantity of the three types of coins found — a shekel, half
shekel and Roman dinar. The time of burial was estimated according
to the time of Vespasian's invasion of the coastal area.

FRANKFURT — The center of a large international Neo-Nazi
organization was uncovered Monday in a police raid near Frankfurt
on the headquarters of the German Social Movement:
Fritz Bauer, the Attorney General, said that police confiscated
membership lists, publications and documents indicating the Nazi
aims of the organization which is • headed by former Hitler youth
leader Friedrich Klein. .•
" Dr. Bauer said the significance of the movement was "not so
much its propagandistic effectiveness as its widespread internationai .
organzation." He said the captured documents revealed close contacts
with similar groups in Europe, Africa and Asia.
Klein who is successor to the recently deceased Karl •eint
Priester, had called an international conference in Wiesbaden for next
Sunday and +ad said he expected some 800-- perSons attend.. A
preliminary movement of neo-Nazi splinter groups took place on May,
12 in Bad Nauheim where plans were made to organize • a rightist
nationalist youth organization.
