JERUSALEM, (JTA) —
Abodt 20 percent of all the
Arab refugees have already
been "in fact" resettled, and
realize they will never return
to their former -homes in Is-
rael, Archbishop George Ha-
kim, of the Greek Catholic
community in Israel, declared
in a newspaper interview here.

The Israel Beer spy case is far
from simple .. Reliable sources
inform us that the alleged con-
fession was just a rumor . . .
Beer's attorney maintains that his
client "did not admit to the-
charges against him".
Observers insist that the Cairo-
Moscow rift is serious . .. Mos-
cow's Arab broadcasts blare forth
"shortsighted politicians are try-
ing to strike at the increasing in-
fluence of Arab Communists by
calling them agents of the for-
eigAers and enemies of Arab na-
tionalism." ... Cairo on the other
hand keeps up the pressure
against Arab Communists.
Marseilles, France, is rapidly
growing into one of the large Jew
ish ;communities of Europe . . .
In 1956 the Jewish population in
Marseilles numbered 15,000 .. .
Today it has reached 40,000 .. .
Of course a part of these refugees
are from Algiers and will even-
tually find their way to Israel .
But the permanent Jewish popu-

a factor in the city.
The election outlook in Israel
has drastically changed . •. Not
so long ago, it was taken for
granted that Ben-Gurion's Mapai
party would have a tough time
in the elections . . . The
Lavon affair was supposed to
have weakened the Mapai con-
siderably . . . Well, it ain't neces-
sarily so, we are told . . . B _ en-
Gurion's personal prestige is still
decisive . . . The Liberal Party
will not conduct an aggressive
campaign . . . Dr. Goldmann's
support of the Liberals is only
half-hearted . . . Intimates go
even so far as to intimate that
Ben-Gurion and Goldmann have
reached an agreement and that
Dr. Goldmann, when, or rather if,
he will eventually settle in Israel
will join Mapai . . . Well, well,
New York City will have an
interesting election campaign this
year . . . The prize is the chief
executive post of the city . . .
And the big question is: will At-
torney General Lefkowitz, a Re-
publican, defeat Mayor Robert
Wagner, a Catholic and Demo-
crat? . . Now, Wagner enjoys
great support from the New York
Jewish community . . . Democrats
moreover, are entrenched in mu-
nicipal politics . . . it will be in-
teresting to observe how far Lef-'
kowitz will cut into the big Demo-
