trained squads in street fighting.
He and his men fought the
British police, strike breakers
and Revisionists while organizing
"Plugot Hapoel" (workers' com-
panies) which established kib-
butzim around Haifa to assure
the town's food supply.
In 1939 Almogi called a gen-
eral strike in Haifa against a
British attempt to choke off
immigration. At the time two
"illegal" ships were in Haifa
harbor and Montgomery, the
British commander in Haifa, was
forced to allow the ships to
remain. •

During World War II, Al-
mogi joined Palestinian units
in_ the British army and was
subsequently taken prisoner
by the Germans in Greece.
He ordered his 1,500 Pales-
tinian fellow prisoners to
destroy their weapons, shave,
wash and be prepared for a
parade in one hour. He
shouted to them, "We are
going to face the enemy like
soldiers and men. If we con-
vince the Germans that we
are soldiers, we can make
them treat us like soldiers.
Remember, we have lived as
Israelites. If necessary, we'll
die like Israelites."

One hour later, three com-
panies of trim, erect Jewish sol-
diers, marching in perfect forma-
tion and singing Hatikvah at the
top of their voices, came to a
halt before the German com-
mander, snapped to attention and
Almogi saluted smartly.
For a moment the German
stared at him,

worked out that way.
It is well known by now that
during the final stages of the
war in 1945, as the Allies ad-
vanced on Germany, Yosef Al-
mogi planned and executed an
escape for the 4,000 British and
Palestinian prisoners and led
them on a 560-mile march to
safety.

Arab Deputies Raise
Issue in Knesset on
Expropriated Land

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — Two
leftist Arab members of Israel's
parliament challenged plans of
the government to expropriate
some partly Arab owned land for
development of a new town near
the Acre-Safed road.

miel.
Finance Minister Levi Eshkol,
replying for the government, said
it was simply a coincidence that
some of the land was partly
Arab-owned. He said Jewish land
was also expropriated for simi-
lar purposes. He explained that
among considerations leading to
selection of the site were topog-
raphy proximity to roads and
supply centers.
He also said that in compensa-
tion, the government had offered
either land or money and that
most of the owners chose cash.

Import of Israeli

WASHINGTON, ( J T A ) —
President Kennedy signed a
proclamation perinitting the

Israeli wheat flour for the

The President acted after

Congress — Senator Jacob K.

him on behalf of their Ortho-

The President's proclamation
said that, without the Israeli

Israel Cabinet Minister Yosef
Almogi will be the guest of the
Detroit Israel Histadrut campaign,
Sunday, Feb. 18, at a brunch at
the . Hayim Greenberg Center;
Almogi, a big man in his 50's,
was born in Poland in 1910. His
father was a prosperous textile
merchant.
At 15, Almogi left home to
join a Polish road gang and
later labored as a woodcutter for
a Jewish lumberman.
One day he knocked the straw
boss cold with a single blow for
anti-_ Semitic remarks and beat up
Russian laborers who came to
attack him and his group.
