WASHINGTON, (JTA) —
Municipal Judge George Neilson
committed George Lincoln
Rockwell, self-styled leader of
the "American _Nazi party" to
the District of Columbia Gen-
eral Hospital for psychiatric
examination.
The judge issued his decision
after a prolonged hearing. Rock-
well testified in his own defense
as the last defense witness,
spending most of his 45 minutes
on the stand describing his neo-
Nazi philosophy.
Judge Neilson accepted a
claim of Assistant Corporation
Counsel • Clark King, at the
close • of the lengthy hearing,
that a prima facie showing had
been made that Rockwell might
be of insufficient soundness of
mine, to stand trial on two
charges of disorderly conduct
arising from clashes at "rallies"
he has been staging in the na-
tion's capital.
The hearings on the dis-
orderly conduct charges
against Rockwell will be con-

$75,200,000 Wheat

LONDON, (JTA, — The
United States will provide the
United Arab Republic with
more than 1,000,000 tons of
wheat and flour worth $75,200,-
000, it . ,vas reported from Cairo.
An agrement for the sale of
$58,200,000 worth of grain and
flour for the Egyptian region
of the U.A.R. was signed yes-
terday in Cairo by Dr. Abdel
Moneim Kaissouni, U.A.R. Min-
ister of the Economy and Treas:
ury and U.S. Ambassador Fred-
erick G. Reinhardt. A similar
agreement for $17,000,000 worth
of wheat and flour for the
Syrian region is expeeet. tc be
signed within a few days.
The new agrements, which
bring to more than $330,000,000
the total amount of U.S. aid
loans and grants made to Egypt
and Syria since 1952, provide
for payment by the L.A.R. for
the wheat in local currency
over a period of 30 years. About
80 percent of the income from
the sale will be lent by the
United States to the U.A.R.

tinued by Judge Neilson un-
til Aug. 26. The hearings
against several of Rockwell's
"troopers" on the same
charges will be continued
until Aug. •31.
Rockwell asserted he was not
advocating the extermination of
Jews "as a race" but "as
traitors." He added he would
"save some " good Jews," and
asserted he had some Jewish
members among his followers.
Evidence studied in the hear-
ing included drawings and writ-
ings dating back to Rockwell's
college student d a y s. The
samples give evidence of in-
tense preoccupation with cruel-
ty in all its manifestations in-
cluding cannibalism, dismem-
berment, bombing, beheading
and flagellation.
The decision for commitment
followed a battle of psychia-
trists over the question of Rock-
well's sanity at the hearing at
which Rockwell had originally
been scheduled to face a second
charge of disorderly conduct.
Dr. John Schultz, medical
director of the District of
Columbia Hospital and former
head of the hospital's psychia-
tric clinic, . testified for the
prosecution. He said he had
examined drawings and writings
from Rockwell's college days,
as well as current ones. He
testified he had reached the
conclusion that "whoever de-

ROME, (JTA)—The office of

on Jewish culture, edited by
Italy's foremost Jewish scholar,
Professor Dante Lattes. Such
funds are allocated by the Gov-
ernment only to publications
"of a high cultural value."

India Considers
Buzzing of Nehru
Closed Incident

NEW DELHI — The Indian
government said Tuesday in
Parliament that it considered as
"closed" the incident created
when two Israeli planes buzzed
a plane over the Gaza area of
southern Palestine in which
Prime Minister Jawarhalal
Nehru was a passenger during
his recent visit to the United
Arab Republic.
The Parliamentary Secretary
of External Affairs told the
House, in response to a ques-
tion, that the Indian govern-
ment had raised the issue with
Israel - through the United Na-
tions Secretary General. Israel,
he said, had expressed regret
and the government considered
the matter closed with this
reply.

veloped this material gave
evidence of having a deep-
seated mental disturbance of a
nature which one might assume
could be dangerous."
King then moved to submit
that a prima facie showing
had been made that Rock-
well "might be of unsound
mind and should be confined
for full-time examination."
Defense. counsel Dr. 0. B.
Parker objected, arguing that
Rockwell was competent to
stand trial and that he had
been found to be so by Dr.
Thomas Murphy, a private
psychiatrist in Washington.
The defense then began to
call witnesses, all of them mem-
bers of Rockwell's group. Al-
though there were some con-
tradictions in their testimony,
they agreed generally that the
use by Rockwell and his fol-
lowers of the swastika on arm-
bands and on other displays
was an "advertising gimmick."
The .defense counsel sought to
show that Rockwell's activities
were motivated only by the
goal of getting publicity.
