VIENNA—The Austrian Jew-
ish community was advised
Tuesday not to show any signs
of friendliness or sympathy
with Soviet Premier Nikita
S Khrushchev during his cur-
rent visit in Austria.
The Austrian Jewish monthly
publication, N e u e Welt, r e -
minded its readers in an edi-
tccial Tuesday that the Jews
in countries behind the Iron
Curtain were still restricted
in the observance of their re-
ligion. It noted that the Jews
of the world would be grateful
to the Soviet Union if it would
permit the Jews to emigrate
from that country.

JERUSALEM. — The United
Jewish Appeal will launch a
special program in the United
States, aimed at developing fu-
ture leadership for the organi-
zation from among the younger
generation of American Jews,
it was announced here Tuesday
by Rabbi Herbert Friedman,
UJA executive vice chairman,
who reported on the projected
program at a meeting here of
the Jewish Agency Executive.
The UJA leader stressed that
the UJA campaign total of $33,-
500,000 for the first half of
1960 was achieved without any
crisis appeal. The campaign in
the U. S. stressed the long-term
needs for the consolidation of
Israel's agricultural settlements.
