Sir Oswald Mosley, British
Fascist leader, broke up his
lecture at the State University
of New York here this week
under shouts "Nazi" and "Jew-
hater" from the angry audience.
He ducked through the back
door and escaped while some
of the students in the hall held
the angry crowd back.
The lecture came to an
abrupt end when Mrs. Isa Klein,
wife of a Buffalo rabbi, jumped
from her chair and called Mos-
ley a "Fascist Jew-Hater." Mos-
ley replied he was never a
racist. His reply provoked
shouts from the audience "You
are a Nazi." A number of per-
sons then surged toward the
platform, but a group of grad-
uate students surrounded him
and forced the crowd back,
while he quickly disappeared.
On his arrival here Mosley
was met by students carrying
placards reading "No Nazis
Here," and "Keep Our City
Clean." At the airport, Mosley
told reporters that "I have
never been and am not an anti-
Semite. I've never attacked any
man's race, birth or religion."
Then he added: "Jewish in-
terests were trying to get us
into a war with Germany, not
in a British but a Jewish quar-
rel." He said among the "re-
markable things" Hitler accom-
plished was that "he solved
the unemployment problem."
Asked why Jews regarded
him as another Hitler, he re-
plied that this was because Jews
were "very excitable and very
hysterical. I don't blame them
because of the trouble they have
experienced." If he ever came
to power, he said, "Jews would
in no way be affected if they
obey the laws. There would be

no discrimination against Jews."
Mosley • was the first of a
series of speakers on a pro-
gram organized by the Students
Association to provide students
presentations of all shades of
political opinion. Student As-
sociation of f i c i a l s defended
their choice of Mosley with the
assertion it was "very difficult"
to find a fascist who could give
a "dispassionate" analysis of
that ideology.
Approval of a visa for Mos-
ley evoked strong protests. Rep.
Seymour Halpern, New York
Republican, urged the U.S. Im-
migration Service to deny Mos-
ley admittance. Chairman
Emanuel Celler of the House
Judiciary Committee said the
State Department "erred" in
giving Mosley a visa. Joseph
F. Barr, executive director of
the Jewish War Veterans, asked
Rep. Frances E. Walter of the
Congressional Joint Committee
on Immigration and Nationality
Policy to act to bar the British

Physical evidence was piled on
a long table in the courtroom.
It included photographs of Hit-
ler, German helmets, automatic
pistols. swastika arm bands and
similar items.
The prosecutor warned the
jury not to underestimate the
activities of the neo-Nazis, de-
claring that "Hitler's Nazis were
in the beginning only a handful
of men." He also said much of
the evidence consisted of docu-
ments published by the defend-

Ozar Hatorah Will
Open Schools for
Refugees in France

NEW YORK, (JTA) — Ozar
Hatorah, the society for Ortho-
dox Jewish youth education in
the Middle East and North
Africa, will open its first two
schools in Lyon and Nice,
France, to provide Hebrew edu-
cation for Jewish refugee chil-
I then, it was announced by Dr.
Mordecai Ha c o h e n, director-
general of the organization, upon
his return from France.
Hacohen reported that his
organization will provide a He-
brew program for Jewish refugee
children from North -Africa in a
government-sponsored vocational
school near Paris. During his
stay in Paris, Hacohen conferred
with high officials of the French
Ministry of Education and lead-
ers of the French Jewish Com-
munity in connection with the
establishment of Ozar Hatorah
schools for Algerian refugee
children in France.
He lauded the work of the
Joint Distribution Committee and
the Fonds Social Juif Unifie to
meet the present emergency,
and stressed that 30,000 refugee
children "are in danger of being
lost to Judaism through extreme
assimilation in their new environ-
ment," if no immediate action for
their education is taken.

PARIS, (JTA) — Their num-
bers swelled by some 200,000
Jewish refugees from Algeria,
Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt,
French Jewry soberly marked
the Jewish New Year's advent in
the knowledge of the grave prob-
lems facing them in the corning
Hundreds of temporary houses
of worship were established to
provide facilities for the thou-
sands of newcomers. The famed
Cirque d'Hiver in Paris was
transformed into a synagogue
for the weekend.
For many thousands of refu-
gees, the New Year, traditionally
a time of rejoicing, marked a
period of personal difficulty and
personal tragedy. Thousands of
them still lack housing and are
dependent on public and volun-
tary relief.
The situation was described as
particularly acute for the many
Algerian Jewish children, up-
rooted from their homes and
living in temporary shelters here
and elsewhere in the country.

Trial of British Nazis Sees
Evidence of Arab Contacts

LONDON, (JTA) — Four
British National Socialist leaders
went on trial on charges of vio-

The defendants were Colin
