Recapitulate Tumult Over • Israel's Atom
Reactor; 'INTo Secret' Deflates Sensation

(Copyright, 1960, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)

NEW YORK, (JTA) — A
world-wide tumult over a new
Israeli atomic reactor was
touched off this week by irri-
tated Government officials in
Washington, secrecy-prone Gov-
ernment officials in Jerusalem,
and sensation-hunting newspa-
pers in several countries. .
The short-lived but high-
powered incident brought big
headlines that Israel had be-
come the latest member of the
"atomic club," expressions of
annoyance and charges of de-
ception from United States De-
partment of State Sources, and
varying expressions of amuse-
ment and indignation from
Israel.
The incident apparently
was closed when the State
Department issued a state-
ment, exactly one week after
the first rumors were pub-
lished by a British daily not
noted for its reliability. The

State Department defined the
United States position toward
Israeli clarification of the re-
ports of Israel's nuclear capa-
city.
The statement said the United
States Government welcomed
Israeli assurances that the sec-
ond reactor was destined to
serve only peaceful purposes
and it noted that Prime Minis-
ter David Ben-Gurion had ex-
pressed a willingness to wel-
come visits from students and
scientists to the reactor when
it is completed three of four
years from now.
The target of all the excite-
ment was an atomic reactor
plant, which has been under
construction near Beershe
The first plant, built at
Rubin with United St
aid
under the American
ms-f o
peace program, ha
capaci
of about 1,000 kil
tts.
Its capacity t

State Dept. Defends Off al Visit
by Pro-Nazi Editor from ebanon

WASHINGTON — An official
invitation extended to a well-
known anti-Jewish and pro-Nazi
Lebanese editor to visit this coun-
try, has been explained by the
State Department as part of a
program to foster "mutual under-
standing," it was reported here
Tuesday. The Lebanese is Said
Freiha, owner and editor of the
Beirut daily Al-Anwar, which
recently published a cartoon
suggesting that Adolf Eich-
mann's real crime was his fail-
ure to exterminate al Jews. The
United States Government in-
vitation extended to him was
questioned by the Jewish War
Veterans, among other groups.
In a letter to the JWV from
the State Department, G. Lewis
Jones, Assistant Secretary of



Ben-Gurion, Goldmann
Address World Parley
of Jewish Journalists

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion and
Dr. Nahum Goldmann, president
of the World Zionist Organiza-
tion, Tuesday addressed the
opening session, of a pre-Con-
ference of Jewish Journalists
attended by 60 delegates from
the Jewish press in all lan-
guages published in 22 coun-
tries, including Israel. The par-
ley decided to hold a world
conference of Jewish journal-
ists in Jerusalem in 1962.
The Prime Minister said that
up to 30 years ago, Yiddish had
been a major unifying factor
but that now three-quarters of
all Jews no longer use it. Lack
of a common langua e he said,
is an obstacle of

explained that,
the Exchange Program directed
at increasing mutual understand-
ing, and on the assumption that
much of the anti-American crit-
icism in the Lebanese press stems
from ignorance, a group of Leb-
anese journalists was invited
observe the recent presid
elections.
The candidates for
mvita-
tion, Jones d e c l a
d, were
chosen by the Unit
tates Em-
basy in Beirut i
ooperation
with the Lebanes ress Associa-
tion. Among t e nominated
was Said Frei
"one of the
most widely
and influen-
tial journalists n the Middle
East," Jones st d. He added
that Freiha's a
es, written
since he r etur ' to Leb-
anon after a month's
country, "while by no means
wholly uncritical, have reflected a
better understanding of the Amer-
ican policies on the international
scene."
The Assistant Secretary of
State concluded his letter by say-
ing that "I deplore, of course, the
type of pernicious journalistic
comment contained in the excerpt
from Al-Anwar."
The group of Lebanese journal-
ists also included Wafik Tibi, edi-
tor of the daily Al-Yom, who
used his United States Govern-
ment-sponsored visit here to
spread anti-Israel propaganda.
Tibi has been director of the Leb-
anese paramilitary group "Na-
dajaz," a Fascist Moslem organi-
zation. His newspaper has been
openly anti-Western.

West Germany Outlaws
High Lawyers' Fees
to Restitution Claimants

KARLSRUHE, West Germany
JTA) — Contingent fees, called
`success charges" by German
awyers who have been billing
indemnification or restitution
claimants on the basis of how
much money they succeeded in
getting for their clients, were out-
lawed here in a decision by the
Supreme Court, West Germany's
highest tribunal. •
The decision may have a far-
reaching effect on the net sums
to be received by claimants, all
of whom are victims of Nazism,
the vast majority of them Jews.
In ruling on an appeal against
such a "success fee" charged by a
German attorney, the court de-
clared that "the charging of ex-
horbitant fees is contrary to the
spirit of the Restitution Law.
The court stated that, while
"contingent" or "success" fees
may be customary in other coun-
tries, they are illegal in the Fed-
eral Republic of Germany.

The second reactor, being
constructed with French help,
will have a capacity of 24,-
000 kilowatts and could, theo-
retically, produce enough plu-
tonium in three or four years
to build an atomic bomb—by
1968 or 1970.
While excitement mounted
for a few days and State De-
partment sources indicated
mounting annoyance at Israeli
reluctance to explain every-
thing, Israeli officials pondered
the matter.
