Soviets Follow
Czarist Tactics
of Anti-Semitism

NEW YORK, (JTA) — "The
tactics of Soviet anti-Semitic
propaganda follow closely the
pattern established some 80
years ago by the Czarist re-
gime," The Christian Science
Monitor writes in an article
analyzing the anti-Jewish pro-
paganda conducted by Soviet
The leading American news-
paper says that the Soviet pro-
paganda machine "uses the
same trumped-up charges
against Jews and appeals to
the same emotions in the popu
lation" as did the anti-Semitic
press in Czarist Russia.
"The Russian programs at the
end of the 19th and beginning
of the 20th centuries which
shocked the world were the
outcome, and more than one
Soviet Jew has asked what the
result will be this time," the
article stresses.
The paper quotes from ar-
ticles against Jews which have
appeared in various Soviet
newspapers in the Ukraine,
Byelorussia, Bukovina and Ka-
zakstan. It cites especially an
anti-Jewish broadcast of the
Ukrainian radio station in Ki-
rovograd. '
"The attacks against Jewish
religion occupy first place in
the anti-Semitic campaign," the
analysis establishes, adding that
"during the past 12 months,
these attacks have steadily in-
creased in number as well as in

The Jewish News wishes to express sincerest
thanks to the merchants, industries and organiza-
tions in our community for their cooperation in
making possible this holiday issue, as well as
previous similar issues.
At the same time, we wish to warn them again
against the misrepresentations that have been in
evidence in Detroit and in a number of other com-

At least three publications — one of them
the organ of a national Jewish organization — have
resorted to the unethical practice of clipping adver-
tisements from the established newspapers in
Detroit, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Pittsburgh
and other cities, and give the impression, in their
solicitations, that the copy appeared in their columns.
The Detroit Jewish News joins with publications
in the cities affected in warning against the irrespon-
sible solicitations.

Better Business Bureaus are at work investi-
gating the tactics of the unethical solicitors.
We warn our readers: beware of the disgraceful
transgressions by publications that resort to the
unethical practices of clipping copy of our adver-
tisers and utilizing them for solicitations as if they -
had appeared in their columns.

Israel Ambassador
Goes on Trial for
Perjury. in Tel Aviv

TEL AVIV, (JTA) Yehes-
kel Sahar, Israeli Ambassador
to Austria, is scheduled for
trial here Oct. 2 on a charge of
perjury. He pleaded not guilty.
The case grew out of a libel
suit instituted in-1957 by Amos

Ben-Gurion, son of the Prime
Minister, who was then deputy
Inspector General of Police
under Sahar. The latter, who
was Amos Ben-Gurion's chief,
testified on behalf of the Pre-
mier's son.
Amos Ben-Gurion had sued a
group of vigilantes here who
had published allegations that
he had closed a police file in-
volving a friend of young Ben-
Gurion, Yeshayah Yarkoni.
Amos Ben-Gurion won the
case - after Sahar had testified
he did not know Yarkoni was
under suspicion. He was award-
ed damages but a higher court
later reduced the amount of
damages. In the course of the
judgement reducing the dam-
ages the court accused Sahar
of -perjuring himself. Sahar is
on leave from the foreign serv-
ice pending the court's deter-
mination of the charges against
