Security was tightened in
the section of Jerusalem lead-
ing to the building where the
Eichmann court is to sit. The
street fronting the Beit Haam
—where the trial will take
place—was barred to all traf-
fic. Eichmann, now closely
guarded in a jail cell in
northern Israel, is to be
moved to a special cell in a
building near the. Beit Haam.
Israeli police and security of-
ficials have thrown a veil of
secrecy around the details of
when 'Eichmann is to be
moved to his new place of
confinement. There was some
speculation that he has al-
ready been placed in his new
cell near the court room.

Meanwhile, a Haifa District
Court rejected a petition for an
early hearing on a civilian claim
against Nazi Adolf Eichmann
for recovery of 1,501 Israeli
pounds worth of property which
belonged to the family of Jo-
seph Mandel in Hungary during
the Nazi era, it was disclosed.
During the hearing, a written
statement from Eichmann was
presented to the court in which
the Nazi disclaimed any knowl-
edge of. looting of Jewish prop-
erty in Hungary and its transfer
to Germany. Mandel, who is
now a Swiss citizen who came
to Israel to file his claim, was
represented by Shmuel.ffamir,
who argued t h at Eichmann
might be condemned and exe-
cuted before .a hearing on the
civilian' claim for property re-
covery could be held.
A representative for Attorney
General Gideon Hausner, who
will be chief prosecutor in the
Eichmann trial, argued against
the Mandel motion. He said it
was more important to hear
first the charges against Eich-
man of responsibility for the
murders of millions of Euro-
pean Jews. The court rejected
Manderis request.
A report on the preparations
made by Israeli authorities for
holding the trial of Eichmann
was given at a press conference
here by Yosef Nahmias, Israel
Police Inspector General.
The complete details of the
trackdown and capture of Eich-
mann "have not yet been pub-
lished" and may not be known
until the entire affair is his-
tory, Nahmias said.
He disclosed that 474 of the
750 seats which will be avail-
able in the Bet Haam court-
room where Eichmann will be
tried next month have been set
aside for local and foreign cor-
respondents. Sixty seats are
reserved for the Israel Foreign
Ministry for distribution to
diplomats and official observers.
Thirty tickets will be given
daily to the Government Tour-
ist Corporation for distribution
to visitors from abroad.
Only a few hundred seats
have been set aside for the

Knesset, Israel's Parliament,'
that Eichmann's counsel, Rob-
ert Servatius, had sought
immunity for such proposed
defense witnesses. Rosen said
that if any Nazis were
brought to Israel, he would
take all possible steps to
prosecute them.

Rosen added that the govern-
ment had no intention of pay-
ing for the transportation of
defense witnesses.
Another disclosure was that
several hundred threatening
letters, written in Nazi style
terminology' about the Eich-
mann trial, have been received
from other countries. A govern-
ment press office spokesm
said that the. letters were
of a large number on the ial
and that most of the
ters
expressed satisfaction o
the
seizure of the Nazi spec ist in
mass murder.

WATCH FOR THIS

According to the reports
originating in New York, a'
travel agency promised free
entrance to the court room to
participants in one of its tours
set up specially for lawyers. A
spokesman for the bureau issu-

said that no entry tickets had
been approved for any such

BONN, (JTA)—Willy Brandt,
mayor of West Berlin, warned
Germans on his return from a
visit to the Unit ed States,
against underestimating the
negative impact the trial of
Adolf Eichmann w a u 1 d have
on American public opinion.
He said that the recent past
of German history would
widely discussed again, but h
added: "This trial 'also give
Germany the chance to make
it quite clear abroad that the
Nazi past no longer has any
future in this country."
In the West German capital
Dieter Wechenbruch, assistant
to Eichmann's defense attorney,
Robert Servatius, said that
some witnesses in West Ger-
many were available for the
defense in the trial, but were
not willing to risk going to
Israel.
Wechtenbruch, who arrived
here. from Israel in connectio
with the final preparations
the trial, said that the witne ses
fear going to Israel, since the
Israeli government announced
it will not guarantee immunity
from prosecution of witnesses
whose complicity in Eichmann's
crimes may be established
through their own testimony.
