Syrians Fire on Israelis
at Border; Kill 1, Wound I


(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV—Syrian gun posi-
tions opened fire twice more,
Tuesday night and early Wednes-
day morning, against Israeli
•workers in the Lake Tiberias
area, where an Israeli Druze
watchman was killed and another
•wourided- in two frontier forays
by Syrians Monday night.
While Israeli border patrolmen
stood by Tuesday night to protect
the workers at one point near the
border, Syrian emplacements
opened heavy fire, which was
immediately returned by the Is-
raeli forces. Israel immediately
demanded that the United Na-
tions Truce Supervision Organiza-
tion arrange a cease-fire.
_ At dawn, while U.N. military
. observers were looking into the
attack, the Syrians started firing
against another Israeli sector
nearby, south of Shear Yashuv.
.It is at that settlement where
the Druze was killed and another
Israeli wounded Monday night.
Israel filed - another complaint on
,the early morning attack with the
Israeli circles were _ watching
this spate of Syrian attacks with

some concern. There is little
doubt here that at least three
of the four attacks in the last
few days came from Syrian army
positions. It is believed possible
here that the attack on the two
watchmen may have been made
by infiltrators, but all the attacks
are considered the responsibility
of the authorities in the Syrian
region of the United Arab Re-
The attacks and border raids
were believed here to be a reflec-
tion of the tough statements
issued at the Cairo conference of
Arab foreign and defense minis-
ters, who threatened to use force
to halt Israel's water develop-
ment project on which the work-
ers in the Lake Tiberias area are
The Israel Government, how-
ever, has made it clear that any
interference with the water de-
velopment project would be con-
sidered an act of war, in violation
of Israel's armistice agreements
with both Egypt and Syria.
Israel is known to have in-
formed the western powers of
her attitude in this regard, and
to have requested that the west
relay this information to the
Arab states.

Israel Election Campaigns
Are Off to Vigorous Start

TEL AVIV, (JTA)—With the
Knesset adjourned, and general
elections scheduled for Aug. 15,
Israel's political parties opened
their election campaign this
weekend, -although most parties,
have not yet announced their
lists of candidates.
Virtually every settlement,
town and village in the country
held election rallies.
The only party that has its
election list ready is the Com-
munist, which has. announced
'exactly the same candidates it
ran in the previous national
elections. Mapai, Herut, Ahdut
Avodah and Mapam 'are com-
pleting their lists. The newly
formed Liberal _Party is making
up a list representing both
major components of that
group, the former General Zion-
ists and Progressives.
The religious groups have not
yet decided on a list, and it is
believed that efforts.. to unite
the various religious parties on
one ticket may not materialize.
Five groups of small commun-
ity parties, composed mainly of
Sephardi and Yemenite Israeli,
are negotiating _in' an effort to
compose a single list. None of
these groups Was able to gar-
ner enough votes for any seats
in the last Knesset.
- The usual election campaign
fireworks were already creating
considerable excitement. Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion, as
leader of the dominant Mapai
Party, was being accused at
some of the rallies of having
undertaken his recent trip to

Administrative Court of the
S t a t e of Baden-Wurttemberg

Sever al truckloads of ma-
terials published by the move-
ment were confiscated May 13,
after a decision by the Confer-
ence of Provincial Interior Min-
isters which held that the Lu-
dendorff Movement and its af-
filiated organizations were banned
in the German Federal Republic.
The 'lower administrative
cqurt upheld a complaint
against the confiscation by the

of the movement announced that
they are appealing the confisca-

Every facet of recent Israeli
,history is being dragged into
the campaign — including the
Eichmann trial and "L'affaire

Belgium Considers
Disability Rating to
Victims of Nazism

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

BRUSSELS—A bill was intro-
duced in the 'Belgian senate
Tuesday which would automat-
icallly grant a ten percent dis-
ability rating to all persons in
Belgium who - had been arrested
and held during the Nazi regime
as political prisoners.
The disability rating would be
accorded on account of the "con-
centration camp pathology" stif-
fened by these prisoners and to
compensate for the deterioration
in their physical wellbeing result-
ing from their deportation.
The rating would be given to
every political prisoner who had
been deported for a period of at
least a year or had been deported
after September, 1944, and in-
terned until liberated by the
Allied Forces. The disability rat-
ing would also be given to those
imprisoned in the Belgian con-
centration camp at Brendonck.
The disability rating, if en-
acted into law, would automat-
ically increase the amount of
compensation to which former
political prisoners are entitled.

visit to this country by M. Shalit,
director of the Israel Govern-
ment Tourist Corporation who re-
turned a recent visit by a Turkish
tourism delegation to Israel.

Asked if Abs' honorary status
in the new group would inspire
those developing nations seek-
ing economic guidance, officials
of the Center indicated it
would be best if his record be-
fore 1945 were ignored and
emphasis placed on his more
recent activities in Asia.
