Arab-Jewish Clashes Create New A

(Continued from Page 1)
came general. In the evening,
the Arabs were chased from
the mellah by the Jewish com-
mandos and French security
police. The largest number of
casualties occured when police
had to open fire on the Arabs
when the latter began throw-
ing grenades to cover their re-
treat.
After a quiet night, Oran resi-
dents awoke to find firemen still
fighting the blazes burning from
the previous day and steel-
helmeted soldiers patrolling the
streets.
Early in the morning on
Tuesday, the A r a b s showed
they were determined to open
new hostilities. A '7 a.m., a
European was murdered in cold
blood and two hours later a
group of 50 Arabs broke into
a Jewish pharmacy which they
ransacked. They then tried to
storm into defense positions.
Younger Jewish children,
their nerves on edge, stormed
Arab shops in the Jewish quar-
ter, breaking into a number of
them. Meanwhile, Arabs massed
again in alleys leading to th
mellah, again shouting "Death
to the Jews" and "Algeria for
Moslems." Arab women hurled
bottles and stones at the mellah
as Arab attackers tried to enter
the Jewish section. In one such
attack an Arab was captured
and killed by the Jewish de-
fenders.
Despite - cries of "French Al-
geria" from the Jewish fighters,
Jewish community spokesmen
emphatically denied there was
any connection between the
Jewish self-defense program and
the French OAS background
movement in Algeria. Speaking
on the radio, a spokesman said
the events were caused entirely
by Arab provocation .and he
denied that the Jewish counter-
action had any political back-
ground.
An eyewitness told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency

that he saw many Jewish fam-
ilies pushing their belongings
and furniture in hand carts
as they left their homes in
the Arab sector for the mel-
lah. Jewish community work-
ers organized temporary relief
facilities for the refugees near
the central synagogue. Other
Jews were reported leaving
Oran for emigration to France
or Israel.

RICHARD, Va. — Virginia's
Sunday closing law was upheld
last week by the State Supreme
Court.
As in a Pennsylvania case
validated by the United States
Supreme Court in May, the re-
ligious angle was discounted as
a basis for current blue laws.
Said the Virginia court on the
point: "While it is true that
the first Sunday laws were
motivated by religious forces
.. . they have undergone such
changes in Virginia and other
states that they can no longer
be considered as retaining any
semblence of religious char-
acter. The evidence shows that
the amended Sunday law was
13onsOred by the Virginia Re-
tail Merchants Association to
provide for a day of rest . . .
and not as a day for required
religious observance."

Sholom Aleichem Work
Translated into Chinese

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—A new
Chinese translation of the works
of Sholom Aleichem has been
published in Peking, it was re-
ported here.
"Chinese Literature," a Pe-
king periodical which discussed
the publication of the new
translation reported that some
of the works were read by the
Chinese Youth Art Theatre to
mark the recent centenary of
the Yiddish writer's birth.
The literary magazine, which
gave the writer's name as "Sh.
Aleichem," was informed of the
meaning of the expression
"Sholom Aleichem," by Dov
Noy, director of the Ha if a
Ethnological Museum, and in a
letter of reply they promised
to rectify the mistake, made
"through ignorance."
