Death of Majali
Called 'Internal
Issue' by Eshkol

front us with an extremely
grave danger and Israel would
then have to consider the new
situation and act to eliminate
that danger," the paper said.
The right-wing Herut party,
however, expressed disagree-
ment, in its newspaper, with the
theory that King Hussein's con-
tinued rule was an assurance of
quiet on Israel's eastern border.
The Herut paper asserted that
Israel had missed an opportu-
nity to ensure its security,
adding "it may be that we are
now again to be confronted with
a test that is likely to determine
the fate of our country."
While the situation in Jor-
dan is undeniably critical
since the assassination of Ma-
jali, there. is a feeling among
experts that King Hussein
will once more succeed in
riding out the storm, accord-
ing to authoritative evaluations
by Israelis here.
The reports about "deterio-
rating" conditions in Jordan,
analysts believe are being cir-
culated directly or indirectly by
United Arab Republic govern-
ment circles in Cairo.
King Hussein's decision to
send the Crown Prince and the
Queen Mother abroad is be-
lieved here to be merely in-
surance against a possible Nas-
serite effort to kill off the
entire royal family. It is seen as
notice to Nasser that even if
King Hussein should be assassi-
nated, the royal house would
not be wiped out. It is believed
that the Jordanian army is loyal
to the Crown Prince and not
only to King Hussein. Informed
Israeli circles believe that Nas-
ser understands that, should he
attempt to take over Jordan,
thus encircling Israel with UAR
troops, Israel could not stand by
passively in the face of such
danger.

Eshkol Views Issue
as "Purely Internal"

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

LONDON.—The situation in
Jordan, as a consequence of the
assassination of Amman's Prime
Minister Majali is purely "an
internal matter," but Israel
must nevertheless be "on the
alert," Israel's Finance Minister
Levi Eshkol declared here Wed-
nesday.
He expressed the opinion that
"we do not think that in this
case the Jordanian situation is
serious enough to affect Israel."
Coming here for a series of
high level talks with Chancellor
of the Exchequer Selwyn Lloyd,
a luncheon with representatives
of Britain's six largest banks
and dinner with a group of high
ranking Jewish businessmen,
led by Sir Simon Marks, Eshkol
told a press conference Wednes-
day morning that he had similar
conferences in Paris Tuesday
with equally high ranking
Frenchmen. Among those with
whom he conferred in Paris was
French Finance Minister Baum-
gartner.

Urge South African Jews Take Position on Racial Issue

JOHANNESBURG, (JTA) —

A

resolution urging every Jew-
ish citizen in South Africa to
mak-e "his individual contribu-
tion toward the promotion of
understanding, good will and
cooperation between all peop'es
and races" in this country was
adopted unanimously here at
the concluding "public rela-
tions" session of the 22nd bien-
nial congress of the Board of
Deputies of South African Jews.
Earlier in the congr es s,
Namie Phillips, chairman of
the Board of Deputies, told the
350 delegates and observers
that the forthcoming referen-
dum in the Union of South
Africa, on whether the country
is to become a republic, does
not involve "a Jewish vote."
The resolution reaffirmed
that view, holding that Jews
participating in politics do so
as individuals, in accordance
with their personal convictions.
The debate on the resolution
showed keen awareness of
South Africa's complex prob-
lems, but emphasized the fact
that cordial relations exist in
this country between Jews and
non-Jews.
Leaders of the Jewish c
munity stressed their satisfac-
tion at the fact,that there is no
"lunatic fringe" in South Africa
advocating disunity between
Jews and Gentiles.

At the same time, however,
the session also noted "with
concern" the increasing trend
toward identifying faculty mem-
bers and students in some uni-
versities by religion. Stressing
the principle of "freedom" of
conscience," the congress called
for safeguarding that principle
in state educational institutions
for "all teachers and students,
irrespective of their religious
belief."
In his presidential address,
Phillips had told the congress
that South African Jews "par-
ticipate in South African life as
citizens of the country, and
they have no attitude as a corn-
niunity r e g a r d i n g political
issues raised by the referen-
dum."
He said he hoped that each
individual Jew "will exercise
his vote conscientiously and
fearlessly in accordance with
his personal view of what is
best for the interests of South
Africa and its i n I .

He added that if the Jewish

50 years was creditable, "this is
testimony to the spirit of toler-
ance and fair play which gen-
ally marked the relationship
tween Jew and non-Jew."

Senator Albert Gore, of Ten-
nessee, chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee's
subcommittee on the Middle
East, said that the Israel issue
should not be passed on to
Henry Cabot Lodge, Republican
nominee for the Vice Presi-
dency.
Vice President Richard M.
Nixon announced last week
that, if elected, he will delegate
Mr. Lodge to assume "primary
responsibility" for Arab-Israel
negotiations.
Senator 'Gale W. McGee, of
Tennessee, Democrat, took the
same stand. Senator Gore said
Mr. Lodge had "failed to pro-
vide positive and effective Mid-
dle Eastern policy for the last
eight years."
Senator Jacob K. Javits, New
York Republican, replied, term-
ing Mr. Lodge a "distinguished
and great diplomat," and saying
he thought "Mr. Nixon has
made the right decision."

He asserted that South Africa
remained faithful to the tradi-
tions of religious freedom
brought from England and

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

ISTANBUL. — A resolution
calling upon all governments to
eradicate racial and religious
discrimination, and appealing to
women throughout the world to
bring up "the new generation
free from prejudice," was unani-
mously adopted here at the con-
clusion of the 16th triennial
convention of the International
Council of Women, at which 34
countries were represented.
Lebanon was the only Arab
state that sent a delegation.
Israel had a strong delega-
tion at the convention, includ-
ing three prominent Israeli wo-
men, Mrs. Shoshana Hareli,
Tamar Eshel and Rachel Gesunt-
heit. An Israeli, Mrs. Sandra
