Two Possibilities Face Israel Government:
Ben-Gurion Again or General Election

Direct JTA Teletype Wire to The Jewish News

JERUSALEM—Israeli newspapers, speculating on next steps in
the situation created by David Ben-Gurion's resignation as Prime
Minister, indicated Wednesday that he might again seek to form a
Coalition, but possibly one without two of his erstwhile partners—
the leftwing Ahdut Avodah and leftWing Mapam. The two -coalition
partners were his severest critics in his feud with PnlSc il, von-
the Histadrut secretary general:
Such reports had the effect of an air of preparatiOns fok cdalition
bargaining. It was indicated, however, that a new bid by Ben-Gurion
to form a government depended on resolution of several problems
dramatized by his resignation Tuesday.

Among these were listed the fulfillment of two of Ben-Gurion's
original demands--a judicial inquiry.to determine who gave the order
in 1954 which led to the security disaster, and the forced resignation
in 1955 of Lavon as Defense Ministhr and the dismissal of Lavon from
his ,Histadrut post.
Ben-Gurion, who finally began his vacation, which he plans to
,f9r . several weeks, was in effect giving his Mapai party
-pme to solve the Lavon dispute at the party level. Readi-
ness,, ...n.,141e4..a new judicial body to investigate the 1954 mishap
presumably would be among the conditions under which a new gov-
ernment could be formed. This possibility was considered so uncer-

Propaganda to Morocco Hiding
Government' s Anti-Jewish Views

Direct JTA Teletype Wires to The Jewish News

PARIS—The government of Morocco abolished MOnday exist visas
for all citizens whatever their religion, and Jewish organizations here
promptly described the Rabat government's action as one of "cheap
propaganda." . .
It was asserted here that the move was a pure propaganda gesture,
made in response to growing indignation over the infringement of basic
rights of free migration in Morocco, a step which will be of no benefit to
Moroccan Jews. The Jewish organizations noted that the action does not
touch the basic difficulty, that of getting passports.
. • The basic situation was made clear earlier, when the Moroccan gov-
ernment charged that "Zionist organizations" were driving Moroccan Jews
to Israel "under any conditions" and that the organizations were respon-
sible for the January 11 sea • disaster in which 43 Moroccan Jewish men,
women and children fleeing to Israel perished off the coast of Morocco.
Information Minister Ahmed Aloui, in his government's first official
statement on the anti-Jewish developments in Morocco, • said that the
"criminal campaign by Zionist organizations" had created a Jewish prob-
lem in Morocco "by stirring up a flight psychosis."
Defending the Moroccan government's refusal to permit emigration
to Israel, he said Morocco would not allow its citizens to settle on lands

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y., (JTA)—The Soviet government stood ac-
cused before the United Nations of charges that it has done nothing to
suppress the anti-Jewish acts outlined in memoranda submitted by Jewish
organizations to the UN Subcommission on Prevention of Discrimination
and Protection of Minorities. The group adopted a resolution Monday
morning condemning "manifestations of anti-Semitism and other forms of
racial and religious intolerance of a similar nature."
The resolution urged the Subcommission's parent body, the Human
Rights Commission, to call for "specific measures" to combat such mani-
festations through legislative enactments by member-governments of the
United Nations. The Subcommission's resolution also leaves the door open
to further study of the general topic, "should circumstances" render such
further debate necessary.
The resolution requested the Human Rights Commission and the
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization "to em-
phasize the importance of drawing attention in educational programs of
member .countries to the dangers and evils of racial, national and religious
hatred, including anti-Semitism." It recommended that a resolution be
placed ultimately. before the UN General Assembly which would call for
"specific measures to forestall and eliminate manifestations of racial, na-
tional and religious hatred in different parts of the world."
The charge that the Soviet government has done nothing so far
about the accusations leveled by Jewish organizations in their memoranda
to the United Nations was voiced in the . Subcommission by Col. John M.

held Monday evening at the Jewish Center, - Irwin I. Cohn will be
awarded the Fred M. Butzel Memorial Award for Distinguished
Service. The citation states that the Federation "takes pride in
conferring the award" upon him, and declares:
"Irwin I. Cohn is a forthright man

munity responsibility that would stag-
ger a man less dedicated.
"He began his association with the'
organized Jewish community as a
teen-ager. The Hannah Schloss Build-
