A Salute to JN

Many encomia have poured

the issue of Nov. 25, including
the following editorial that ap-

consin Jewish Chronicle of Mil-
waukee, Wis.:
"A Personal Paean on
Being an American"

To those of us to whom is given
United States citizenship as a

approached the Soviet Ambas-
sador in London with a view to
discussing with him the situa-
tion of the Jews in the Soviet
Union. However, no answer has
been received thus far from
the envoy, it was reported here
by Barnett Janrier, president of
the representative body of Brit-
ish Jewry.
At its meeting yesterday, the
Board of Deputies adopted a
resolution "taking the strongest
exception to the suggestion that
the British Government should
afford to German armed forces
facilities for military ,training

Ben-Gurion, Golchnann Agree on Congress Topics

JERUSALEM,. (JTA)—Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion and
'Dr. Nahum Goldmann con-
cluded their• series of talks on
the forthcoming 25th World
Zionist Congress with a com-
munique disclosing agreement
on priority . for several key top-
ics in debate at the Congress.
The communique said:
"The Israel Prime Minister
and the President of the World
Zionist Organization agreed
that increasing Aliyah and its
encouragement in all countries,
the fostering of Hebrew educa-
tion in Jewish communities out-
side of Israel and strengthening
of Halutziyut must stand in the
center of Congress discussions."
The communique also said that
the two leaders agreed that the
Congress "should also outline
practical ways for implementa-
tion of these aims."
The two agreed, according to
the communique, that the Zion-
ist movement "will have to put
at the center of its activities
immigration and its absorption,
Hebrew education and Halut-
ziyut."
In an interview over the
Israel radio, Goldmann de-
clared that the differences of
opinion between himself and
Ben-Gurion "are not so great."
However, he stressed his op-
position to the idea, projected
by the Premier, that it is
"the personal duty" of every
Zionist to immigrate to Israel.
Goldmann firmly rejected
Ben-Gurion's charges that the
Zionist Organization has inter-
fered with Jewish immigration
to ISrael. `.`It •

agreement would prevent Ben-

fully on such disputed issues
as Aliya and Halutziyut, it
would be unfortunate. "It would
have been wiser to permit Mr .
Ben-Gurion to .say what he
wanted to say at the Congress,"
she declared. "This way of treat-
ing situations of concern to the
•Zionist movement is not
health y. "
She questioned the basic 'real-
ity of the agreement, asserting
that "the differences between
the two men are fundamental
and great." She said if Mr.
Ben-Gurion did not express his
full views. it would amount to
"sweeping the problem under
the rug." •

German Jews Protest
TV Portrayal of Jew

BERLIN,. (JTA)—The Jewish
community here protested
against what it called a "dis-
torted" portrayal of a Jew in
a play appearing on the national
West German television net-
work.
In an open letter to the
Stuttgart radio company, Heinz
Galinski, head of the West Ber-
lin Jewish community, said that
the play had "depicted a Jewish
citizen in the manner of a Nazi
caricature." His protest referred
to a scene in the play in which
a salesman, ostensibly of Polish-
Jewish extraction, sold clothes
in a second-hand shop.
Galinski said the scene "must
give a completely false picture
to German youths" who had
never met a Jew. But Carl
Zuckmayer, a G e r m a n-born
United States citizen, who wrote
the play, "The Captain of
Koepenick," said he was "en-
tirely in agreement" with the
television portrayal. He said
the Jewish dealer was "a type
such as then lived in old
Berlin."
