Melee Ends London Fascists' Meeting;
`Yellow Star' Holds Marathon Rally

LONDON, (JTA) — British
courts imposed sentences on
more than 40 persons arrested
in a wild melee that erupted
when hostile listeners broke
through strong police cordons
to attack Sir Oswald Mosley
and smash a meeting of his
fascist Union Movement in the
heavily Jewish East End sec-
tion of London.
Mosley had originally planned
a march thrOugh that section,
but was forced to cancel that
activity when the London Police
Commissioner, Sir John Simp-
son, under mounting public
pressure on British Home Sec-
retary Henry Brooke, banned
all political parades in the area
during the weekend.
A related clash occurred in
nearby Dalston, where the
anti-fascist Yellow Star move-
ment held a marathon 12-
hour rally to prevent another
neo-Nazi group, the British
National party, from holding

a planned meeting there. But
when several "nationalists"
tried to hold a meeting a few
blocks from the Yellow Star
site, they were attacked and
beaten, a number of them
being hospitalized.
One of the first to be sen-
tenced was a man who had pre-
viously been convicted three
times for similar attacks on
British neo-Nazis at public ral-
lies. Sentenced. to 21 days, he
said that, if fighting fascism
meant breaking the law, he in-
tended to go right on breaking
it. Another defendant- said he
had been awarded six medals
during World War II for fight-
ing Nazis. Most of the defend-
ants received fines of. two to
ten pounds ($5.60 to $28).
Mosley was kicked and
punched when the r oaring
crowd of 3,000 broke up his
meeting despite efforts by po-
lice reinforcements eight deep
seeking to protect him. He was

Expect Fast Senate OK of Goldberg
Appointment to U.S. Supreme Court

President Kennedy's nomination
of Secretary of Labor Arthur
Goldberg to succeed retiring
Supreme Court Justice Frank-
furter appeared certain to win
quick Senate approval.
Although the Goldberg nomi-
nation would reinforce the "lib-
eral" wing of the Court, praise
for Mr. Kennedy's choice came
from both Democrats and Re-
publicans. Senate Republican
Leader Everett Dirksen called
Goldberg a man who "measures
up to every standard required
for a place on the Supreme
Court." Many Democratic sen-
ators lauded Goldberg's charac-
ter, intelligence, and courage.
Meanwhile, Justice Frankfur-
ter's retirement has brought
almost universal tribute to his
stature and genius. It is being
widely predicted here that Gold-
berg will follow the path of
Frankfurter in the Court to-
ward conservatism and not nec-
essarily emerge as a "radical."
The Washington Star said edi-
torially that "Mr. Goldberg, as
a member of the Court, will
turn out to be a conservative in
the true and meaningful sense
of the word. For the benefit of
those who may doubt this, we
recall the dismay with which so
many received the word of Jus-
tice Frankfurther's appointment
back in 1939."

York newspapers were unani-
mous in lauding President Ken-
nedy's appointment of Arthur
Goldberg to be a justice on the
United States Supreme Court.
The New York Times, which
also paid tribute to retiring
Justice Felix Frankfurter, de-
clared that "the appointment of
Arthur J. Goldberg brings to the
Supreme Court a strong be-
liever in the necessity for ex-
panding Government activities
to meet the complex require-
ments of our industrial society.
His record as Secretary of
Labor has demonstrated the
astonishing diversity of his tal-
The Herald-Tribune linked
Justice Frankfurter's retirement
with Goldberg's appointment,
declaring that the appointee's
legal experience is specialized
if thorough. He will have much
to learn but he ha, fortunately,
a particularly illustrious model"
in retiring Justice Frankfurter.
The Journal-American said it
was "confident that Mr. Gold-
berg has all the qualifications,
plus the dedication, to make
him a worthy successor to Mr.
Justice Frankfurter." The World
Telegram and Sun referred to
Goldberg's "lack of prior ex-
perience on the bench" but add-
ed that he was "a man of ob-

viously superior intelligence
and unquestioned integrity,"
and offered "our best wishes
for a distinguished judicial
The New York Times, in a
profile on Goldberg, said his
father, an immigrant from Rus-
sia, worked as a peddler in
Texas for a year-and-a-half be-
fore moving on to Chicago.
There he acquired a horse and
wagon and started a small busi-
ness carting fruits and vege-
tables. The Chicago rabbi who
married him and Dorothy Kur-
gans is a guest at the Goldberg
home whenever he comes to
Washington. Goldberg was grad-
uated, from Northwestern Uni-
versity Law School at the top
of his class.

L.A. Federation
Directors Draw Office
Terms by Lot
Terms of office as members of
the Jewish Federation-Council
board of directors, ranging from
one to three years, were drawn
by lot at the August board meet-
The action was in keeping
with the 1959 by-laws of the
Jewish Federation-Council that
after an initial three-year pe-
riod of merged boards of direc-
tors with no replacements, one-
third of the board was to be
replaced each succeeding year
through equal representation
among service agencies, consti-
tuent member organizations of
JF-C and contributors to the
United Jewish Welfare Fund
Implementation of the pro-
cedure of electing one-third of
the board each year is an effort
to guarantee a continuation of
experienced leadership for the
organized Jewish community by
the most democratic means.
First election to fill 28 vacan-
cies on the board will be held
at the JF-C annual meeting in
January, 1963.

hit as he left his car for the
platform to make a speech.
His first words were drowned
out in a storm of catcalls. At
the suggestion of police, Mosley
decided to halt the meeting.
The crowd broke through, and
Mosley scampered for his car,
the target of a shower of rotten
eggs. The incident was almost
a repitition of a similar meet-
ing a month ago, in another
section of the East End, when
he was knocked down and
As a result of the riotous
neo-Nazi meetings, the Home
Secretary barred the use of
London's Trafalgar Square to
the ultar-right wing groups, and
followed that up with the ban
on political parades.
The fascist leader declared
after his meeting was broken
up that he had publicly con-
demned Hitler "and the kill-
ing of the Jews in cold blood"
and that he was not an anti-
Semite. He contended that
there was a "systematic" Com-
munist campaign "to confuse
us with the lunatic fringe like
Jordan, whose ideas are com-
pletely alien to us." The ref-
erence was to Colin Jordan,
leader of the British National
Socialists who, with three
other party officials, faces
trial on charges of violating
the British Public Order Act.
Rev. William Sargent, found-
er of the Yellow Star, reported
before the Sunday meeting got
underway that he and his wife
had received threatening tele-
phone calls, including one re-
ferring to a blast Friday night
at the Adath Yisroel synagogue.
Rev. Sargent said the caller
said "we dynamited the syna-
gogue, and if you don't keep,
your mouth shut, we'll dyna-
mite you." Explosive experts
were studying fragments of
the home-made bomb which ex-
ploded 40 minutes after some
100 worshipers had completed
services and left. Damage was
slight. The synagogue is about
a mile from Ridley Road Dal-
ston, where the Yellow Star
movement held its marathon
