$35 Million Property Claim Against

Egypt Filed by Jewish Family

LONDON, (JTA)—An Anglo-
Jewish family whose properties
in Egypt were expropriated by
the Egyptian government during,
the 1956 Suez campaign was dis-
closed to have filed a claim for
compensation of 12,500,000
pounds sterling ($35,000,000).
The claim was filed by Ellis
Smouha with the Foreign Claims
Commission which makes pay-
ments in such cases from the
27,500,000 pounds sterling ($77,-
000,000) which Egypt paid to
Britain in settlement of all claims
by British nationals for property
in Egypt.
Smouha told the commission
that his father, a Manchester
resident, went to Egypt on a mis
sion for the British governme
in 1917. At the end of Wor
War I, he began to acquire pr
erty in Alexandria which even
ally became "Smouha City," a

Fouad who once said that the
elder Smouha was the only for-
eigner who brought his money
with him to Egypt and did good
for the country.

NEW YORK, (JTA)—Refer-
ence to anti-Semitism is made
in the text of the draft pro-
gram of the Soviet Communist
Party to be presented to the
22nd congress of the party in
October in which pledges are
made to improve conditions of
life in the Soviet Union.
"Imperialist reaction makes
extensive use of chauvinism to
incite nationalist conflicts, per-
secute entire nationalities and
national groups through anti-
Semitism and racial discrimina-
tion against Negroes," the draft
says. Nothing is mentioned
about the suppression of Jew-
ish culture in the Soviet Union.
(A resolution calling on the
Soviet Union to allow Jewish
schools to function in that coun-
try was unanimously adopted
in Rio-de-Janeiro at the sixth
International Congress for Free
Education attended by dele-
gates from 32 countries, includ-
ing several new African states.
The resolution was proposed by
Dr. Shaul Levin, director of the
Education Department of the
Tel Aviv Municipality.)
The draft also attacks reli-
gion. It says: "Clericalism is
acquiring ever greater impor-
tance in the political and ideo-
logical arsenal of imperialism.
The clericals do not confine
themselves to using the church
and its ramified machinery.
They now have their own big
political parties which in many
capitalist countries are in
power. They set up their own
trade union, youth, women's
and other organizations and split
ranks of the working class and
all working people. The monop-
olies lavishly subsidize clerical
parties and organizations, which
exploit the religious sentiments
of the working people and their
superstitions and prejudices."

Youths in Cleveland
Jailed for Vandalism of
Jewish Center Building

CLEVELAND, (JTA) — A
large number of boys are under
arrest and will be tried in Ju-
venile Court here on charges of
having participated in vandal-
ism against the Jewish Com-
munity Center in S h a k e r
Heightg.
Police said the youths had
entered the building, broke
windows and had destroyed fur-
niture and fittings worth more
than $1,000.
Detective Sergeant R alph
Schaar said that furnace gas
jets had been turned on by the
vandals and that an explosion
could have wrecked the entire
building when a fire was started
with candles. He described the
vandalism as "spontaneous"
and said that he felt "no malice
was involved."
