Ben-Gurion Clashes with Goldinann, Annual Meeting
Other Leaders Over Zionist Views of UHS Tuesday;
TEL AVIV, (JTA) — A sharp against the notion by Israeli BB Head to Speak
exchange of opinions between Jews that Jews outside Israel

.

Premier David Ben-Gurion and
Dr. Nahum Goldmann, presi-
dent of the World Zionist or-
ganization, took place here at
a meeting of the central com-
mittee of Mapai, Israel's Labor
Party, called for the purpose of
discussing the future of the
world Zionist movement.
The meeting, which lasted 12
hours, was held in three ses-
sions, all attended by Ben-
Gurion, who is the top leader
of the Mapai, the government
party. Ben-Gurion, who does not
believe in the necessity of
further existence of the Zionist
movement, now that Israel has
been functioning for more than
10 years as an independent
state, heatedly defended his
viewpoint, but was countered
by Dr. Goldmann and Mrs. Rose
Halprin who spoke on behalf
of the executive of the World
Zionist Organization. He was
also opposed by Levi Eshkol,
Moshe Sharett and other Mapai
leaders.
Following excited discussions,
the central committee adopted
a proposal by Sharett to ex-
pand the Zionist organization,
and tosupport the decision
reached to this effect last week
at a combined meeting of lead-
ers of the Israel goyernment
and the Jewish Agency. The
central committee also decided
to submit the problem for dis-
cussion to all branches of Mapai
and, when their discussions are
concluded, to take up the ques-
tion again for final decision.
In the course of his heated
arguments, Ben-Gurion attacked
Dr. Goldmann, telling him that
he is "neither an Israeli nor an
American, but a wandering
Jew." He demanded an imme-
diate reply to the question
"what is a Zionist," and whether
the present Zionist Organization
is capable of teaching Hebrew
in countries outside of Israel,
and of fostering immigration to
Israel.
"Will the Zionist Organiza-
tion of • America organize Aliya,
which is Israel's most pressing
need? Will it organize Hebrew
education, which is what Jews
elsewhere need most?" Ben-
Gurion asked. He then posed
the question: "How can we ex-
plain to the young generation
that there are two sorts of
Jews — Zionists and 'others'?"
Asserting that Israel is the crea-
tion of the Jewish nation, and
not of the Jewish Agency, he in-
sisted that today there is no
difference between a Zionist
and a non-Zionist.
Dr. Goldmann, in a long ad-
dress delivered calmly, warned

"are in their pockets." He said
that "the present generation is
not typical as far as relations
between the State of Israel and
non-Israeli Jews are concerned.
It is a generation that has
passed through concentration
camps and is proud of the
State's establishment."
The president of the WZO
strongly opposed the idea that
there is no need for an inter-
national Jewish organization for
fostering relations between Is-
rael and Jews outside Israel.
"To small Jewish communities,"
he said, the World Zionist Or-
ganization "gives the feeling
that they participate in shaping
the Jewish Nation's fate."

2 Moslems Added
to Detroit Round
Table Directors

Announcement was made this
week that two Moslem leaders
are being named members of
the board of directors of the
Detroit Round Table of Catho-
lics, Jews and Protestants.
This marks the first depart-
ure by any branch of the Na-
tional Conference of Christians
and Jews of adding Islamic
leaders to the movement that
hitherto was limited to Catho-
lics, Jews and Protestants.
The two Moslems chosen for
the R6und Table board are
Imam Shirri and Fuad Hassan.
The Round Table board of di-
rectors until now was composed
of 25 representatives each from
the Catholic, Jewish and Pro-
testant communities in Detr6it.
Robert M. Frehse, executive
director of the Detroit Round
Table, said that the selection
of the two Moslems was ap-
proved by the nine-member ex-
ecutive committee.
Alfred May, Round Table
president, said the addition of
the two Islamic representatives
will not affect the name of the
organization. He said the action
was- taken as part of the good
will movement of securing the
cooperation of all elements in
the community for the advance-
ment of the ideas of brother-
hood advocated by the National
Conference of Christians and
Jews.
At Tuesday's meeting, the
Detroit Round Table will bid
farewell to King D. Schwader,
for many years a member of
the board, who is moving to
Denver.

20,000 Israelis
in Mass Scene
of 'Exodus' Film

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — This
city is a virtual Hollywood
movie set as 20,000 Israelis
poured into the city's largest
square to participate in the re-
enactment of Israel's proudest
moment, the proclamation of Is-
rael's Declaration of Independ-
ence, which occurred on May 14,
1948.
Otto Preminger, producer of
the film story of Leon Uris
novel, "Exodus," brought his
camera crews, technicians, and
cast here. Until now, the film
has been shot mainly on loca-
tion in Haifa. While cameras
roamed the streets, shooting
various scenes as background,
preparations were made for two
of the three important scenes
to be filmed here.
One of the scenes will show
the dynamiting of the King
David Hotel. During the period
of active fighting here among
Jews, Arabs and the British
mandatory power's troop s, a
wing of the hotel had actually
been blown up by some of the
more militant of the Zionist
fighters.
Another scene involves the
trial of a member of the Haga-
nah, the more moderate, under-
ground fighting arm of the Jews
in Palestine. This trial was
staged in the Supreme Court
building, where "British" offi-
cers sweated a "captured" mem-
ber of the Haganah.
Crowds filled the square for
the reenactment of the Pro-
clamation of Independence. To
help bring out the crowd, a
special lottery had been organ-
ized, with 10,000 tickets sold up
to 24 hours before the sched-
uled shooting of this scene.
Persons crowding into the
square to act as real-life movie
extras had to have their lottery
tickets stamped at the site of
the filming. Winners of the lot-
tery will receive cash prizes.

Italian Fascist Honored

ROME, (JTA) — Prof. Nicola
Pende, official author of the
Fascist racial manifesto pro-
claimed by the Mussolini re-
gime in 1938, as Italy's counter-
part of the Nazis' racist Nurem-
berg laws, was honored with an
award of a gold medal at cere-
monies scheduled here on Cap-
ital Hill.

with Presentation of Medal

The medal had been voted by
the International Committee for
Unity and Universality of Cult-
ure, which cited the Fascist
author for his "great cultural
and scientific achievements."
Italian anti-Fascist and Jewish
circles expressed "surprise" and
"disapproval" of the award and
the ceremony.
