Weak Foreign Aid Clause
Nullifies Effort to Stop
Arabs' Boycott of Jewry
WASHINGTON, (JTA)—Chairman J. W. Fulbright, 'of the
Senate" Foreign Relations Committee, waged a bitter last-ditch
fight against a foreign aid clause pertaining to Arab bias and
blockade tactics, and succeeded in adding language to nullify the
effect of the anti-discrimination measure.
The Senate committee defeated by a vote of 8 to 6 a last-
minute move by Senator Fulbright, Senator Bourke Hickenlooper,
Iowa Republican, and others to delete the so-called "Kennedy
clause." The clause was a policy statement aimed at the Arab
League's anti-Israel and anti-Jewish discriminations. A motion to
strike the clause was introduced by Senator Ilickenlooper and
vigorously backed by the chairman.
After the Hickenlooper motion was defeated, the chairman
won adoption of an offsetting paragraph to nullify the effect of
the "Kennedy clause." It was passed by 14 to 0. The nullifying
paragraph said: "These principles shall be supported in such a
way as to avoid taking sides in any controversy between countries
having friendly relations with the United States, while urging
both sides to adjudicate the issues involved by means of proce-
dures available to the parties."

Eichmann's Own 'Witness
Gives Damning Testimony:
Summations to Start Aug. 3
JERUSALEM—The trial of Adolf Eichmann was adjourned
Tuesday until Aug. 3 upon completion by Dr. Robert Servatius,
Eichmann's ehief defense counsel, of- his defense of the former
Gestapo colonel charged with engineering the annihilation of
6,000,000 Jews in Europe.
- The three-justice court then ordered the adjournment at the
request of Prosecutor Gideon Hausner, so that the prosecutor and
Servatius will have, time to prepare their summations.
The end of the marathon proceedings came exactly 15
weeks after the trial opened last April 11. The prosecution brought
112 witnesses to the stand and submitted some 1,500 documents.
The prosecution also ended its presentation Tuesday.
After Hausner and Servatius present their summations, a
procedure likely to last a week, the court will adjourn to study
the mountain of evidence and to prepare a verdict. This is not
expected until after the High Holy Days, in mid-October.
- The only defense witness was the defendant. Servatius also
introduced affidavits from 10 former Nazi associates of Eich-
mann. who testified in European courts because they either could

ARLINGTON, Va., (JTA)—Shocked by the kidnapping and molesting of a
13-year-old Jewish boy by George Lincoln Rockwell's Nazi "stormtroopers," and
stirred to action by the imposition, by an Arlington, Va., judge of sentences of a
year each upon two of Rockwell's gangsters who were convicted on .charges of
assault and battery on the Jewish boy, the Arlington County Board this week in-
dicated that it will seek special legislation aimed at disarming the American
Nazi force. It was reported to the board that the Nazi arsenal includes military
rifles, carbines, shotguns, automatic pistols and other weapons, and in seeking
legislation against the domestic-Nazis one aim is to abolish their private arsenal.
Commonwealth attorney William Hassan told the board that the present
Virginia law "allows anyone ,who wants to, to wear a sidearm. The only place
firearms are prohibited in Virginia is in churches." County board member
Ralph Kaul said: "Our laws need to be strengthened before somebody is killed
by this group."
Kaul proposed to the board that Arlington try to persuade the state Gen-
eral Assembly when it meets next January to adopt legislation authorizing coun-
ties to enact their own statutes governibg firearms.
Mrs. Kathryn Stone of Arlington, a member of the State House of Del-
egates representing her county, said: "I will certainly introduce legislation for
tighter control of firearms." Delegate Stone voiced abhorrence at Nazi activities
in Arlington. She said that studies have begun to determine what type of new
statutes would be most effective.
A County. Board source said Arlington could
longer tolerate- :"vara-
military force or kind of private army like that nfailitairie:Tby tre.iiiiiitNa
zi-gang here." This source said it was well known to 'pollee - that the Nazis main-
tain military discipline, and conduct training in use of weapons and tactics.
At another meeting, 60 community leaders, including some from adjacent -
Fairfax County, formed an organization called . "Citizens Concerned" to combat
the Nazis. Chosen as co-chairmen were Clarence Salisbury, vice-president of the
Arlington Civic Federation, and Mrs. Charles E._ Planck, a leader of the local
chapter of the League of Women Voters.
The sentences imposed upon Rockwell's "stormtroopers" are the stiffest
in the lengthy record of. the Rockwellites' frequent brushes with.. the law. It was
the first case in which the Nazis went beyond their claims of exercising their
rights of free speech by provocative threats to send American Jews to the gas
chambers and actually carried out a physical assault.
Juvenile Court Judge Hugh Creeger imposed the sentences on Robert
Garber, 31, and Richard Braun, 26, the maximum permissible on an assault
and battery conviction. The victim was Ricky Farber. Garber and Braun were
arrested July 11 after the boy's father swore out warrants against them.
It was a week of - several conflicts involving Rockwellites in street alter-
cations and arrests, as well as the sentencing of a third Nazi and the formation
of an Arlington Emergency Citizens Committee with the avowed intention of
finding legal ways to rid the Virginia city of Rockwell, his headquarters, his
"stormtroopers" and their -"barracks." _
Judge Creeger declined to hold Garber and Braun for grand jury action
which would require a wait until next 0 ctober. He ruled there was sufficient evi-
dence to press immediate simple assault charges. He also held that the case did
not constitute a felony so that immediate action could be started on misdemea-
nor action and sentence could be imposed on conviction.
