Castro Dismisses Oltuski,
Sole Jew in Cuban Cabinet

HAVANA, (JTA)—Enrique Oltuski, the only Jew
ever to serve in a Cuban Cabinet, was replaced by the
Castro regime as Minister of Communications. Oltuski's
resignation was announced by President Dorticos after
a 13-hour cabinet 'session.
(Washington sources said that Oltuski had been re-
moved from the government presumably because he had
not been "aggressive enough" in application of the
Castro revolutionary principles.)
Oltuski, who is about 30, is the son of an Orthodox
Jewish couple residing in Santa Clara where his father
has a shoe factory. He is a graduate of the University
of Miami and was an active figure in the Castro revolt
against the Batista regime. He was named to the Cabinet
in January, 1959.

WASHINGTON—Assistant Corporation Counsel Clark King asked Municipal

jected an offer by the court to appoint an • attorney. When King asked- for the
insanity proceedings, however, Rockwell changed his mind and asked for legal

Israel Seeks Mediation
in Argentinian Conflict

Hidden History Revealed- • ,- A ,rcriaeologists
rc h aeologists and students

the Hebrew University of Jerusalem are shown here climbing down into a Judaean
desert cave in search for hidden historical date. Many missing facts about one of
Jewish history's most inspiring episodes are coming to light through current scholar-
ship at the Hebrew University. Noted . archaeologists, among them the university's
president, Prof. Benjamin Mazar, and Prof. Yigael Yadin, former Chief of Staff of
Israel's armed forces, are completing their study of relics of the Bar Kochba revolt
against Rome, which occurred in 132-135 C.E. Letters by Bar Kochba and extensive
war booty, found by Prof. Yadin during a highly successful expedition to the
Judaean desert caves, already prove that even after the defeat by the Romans, Bar
Kochba and his followers still kept up their heroic struggle from the caves. To
reach these almost-inaccessible hideouts, Hebrew University scholars and students
had to climb down rope ladders attached to army trucks on the cliffs. They fought
choking dust and scorpions, and faced the threat of landslides from a drenching
rainstorm. Despite these hazards, further Judaean desert expeditions are planned
by the Hebrew University in its constant quest for knowledge.

JERUSALEM--Informed sources here Wednesday
said Israel officials were considering the possibility of
asking mediation by the Western Powers in the continu-
ing diplomatic deadlock with Argentina in the Adolf
Eichmann case.
That possibility was coming under consideration,
it was indicated, because of the apparent Argentine re-
fusal to accept Israel's apology for the seizure of the
Nazi murder specialist on Argentine soil and the in-
sistence of the South American country on an offer by
Israel of adequate reparations. Argentina has not stated
publicly what action it would consider as meeting
that request. .
The sources reported that the idea • of asking
Western mediation was one of two contemplated lines
of possible further diplomatic action, both aimed at
reaching an amicable solution of the impasse. If Ar-
gentina accepted Israel's latest note, restating Israel's
earlier position that it considered its apology to Argen-
tina as constituting such raparations, Israel planned
an additional conciliatory gesture—possibly despatch-
ing Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel's Foreign Minister; on a
goodwill mission to Buenos Aires.
The possible appeal for Western mediation, should
Argentina remain obdurate, derived from the fact that
Western delegates at the Security Council meeting,
which heard Argentina's complaint against Israel in the
Eichmann seizure, indicated clearly that their govern-
ments regarded Israel's public apologies "adequate
compensation" to Argentina. The proposal called for a
request by Israel to those governments to mediate the
deadlock in that spirit.
Israel meanwhile expressed thanks to the Soviet
Union and Polish delegates for their statements at the
Security Council supporting Israel's position on punish-
ment of escaped Nazis. The Soviet Union and Poland
were the only two Security Council members abstain-
ing from the vote on the amended Argentinian resolu-
tion. The abstentions were based on a fear that support
of the resolution might be interpreted as support
for the idea that Israel should return Eichmann to
Israel told Argentina, in a note made public Tues-
day, that its formal apologies given by Mrs. Meir, at the
