UJA Study Mission Told to Expect Shalom Shtarkes
Seeks to Avoid
Huge Expenditures for Immigrants Trial in' Israel

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV — The 145-member
United Jewish Appeal study mis-
sion was told Tuesday that im-
migration to Israel may continue
at a pace calling for huge expen-
ditures with possible housing out-
lays of $66 million for the new-
comers.
The figure was given by Aryeh
Pincus, Jewish Agency Treasur-
er, at the first working session
of the mission after its arrival
here from Europe. He also told
the UJA leaders that such funds
would have to be raised in addi-
tion to those for projects to pro-
vide permanent housing for 2,500
immigrant families still in tran-
sit camps for young couples and
for slum dwellers.
Asserting that the Jewish
nation had never been pre-
pared for "tomorrow's emer-
gencies," the Agency official
said that "it is time we start
to take measures for tomor-
row at least with the yard-
sticks of today." He said that
if the current UJA goal was
not reached—"and it is essen-
tial that we raise even more"
—the efforts of 25 years of
UJA may be wasted.
Describing the effort made by
Israeli Jews in absorbing immi-
gration, he said they covered
two-thirds of such expenditures
with the remaining one third be-
ing covered from abroad. With
the anticipated greater immigra-
tion and the corresponding ex-
pected larger outlays for hous-
ing and settlement, he added,
this ratio would change and the
burden on Israeli Jews would be
greater.
He added that this would be
in addition to the security load
which was being increased by
the need to provide new weap-
ons. Joseph Meyerhoff, UJA gen-
eral chairman, presided.
Two plane loads of immigrants
arrived at Lydda Airport during
the day. Members of the mission
accompanied the newcomers to
new homes waiting for them in
the Negev.

Earlier, in Paris, members
of the study mission to Europe
and Israel were told that the
American Jewish Jonit Distri-
bution Committee was spend-
ing one-third of its total bud-
get on emergency measures to
help the 200,000 Jewish new-
comers from Algeria and else-
where now in France.
Charles Jordan, JDC director-
general, said at a luncheon serv-
ed at the refugee canteen, that
the JDC is spending nearly $3,-
000,000 this year in France,
where the Jewish population has
increased from 300,000 to over
half a million in the last few
years. This gives France the
fourth largest Jewish community
in the world, he said.
The tremendous influx of Jews
in this country has created a sit-
uation where existing Jewish
community installations, welfare
agencies, clinics, schools, syna-
gogues and communities are
"swamped" in their efforts to in-
tegrate the newcomers, Jordan
said. This has caused an increase
of nearly $500,000 over JDC ex-
penditures in the 27 countries in
which it operated in 1961, he
noted.

Fascist Meeting
Halted in Britain

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON — Attorneys for
Shalom Shtarkes said Wednesday
that the Lord Chief Justices
Court had agreed to hear on
Friday an appeal for a new
habeas corpus writ to bar extra-
dition of the young religious
teacher to Israel on charges of
perjury and kidnaping in the
hiding of his nephew, Yoselle
Schtunacher.
Earlier in the week, Shtarkes
said he would accept a ruling of
the Home Secretary's office
ordering his immediate extradi-
tion to Israel. An Israeli police
officer had been scheduled to
bring him back to Israel on Tues-
day. Shtarkes had said he would
not seek a new habeas corpus
writ because he had decided to
rely on "the fairness of the
Israeli courts" to establish his
innocence which he had insisted
on during his long detention in
Britain.
The attorneys said Shtarkes
had changed his mind and de-
cided to proceed with a bid for
a new habeas corpus writ after
consulting members of his fam-
ily. He was arrested in London
after Israel issued an extradition
warrant for him which was sus-
tained on appeals to the House
of Lords.
Yoselle was found last July 'in
the home of a Brooklyn rabbi
after a hunt for him on three
continents. The boy was spirited
away from his parents by -Ortho-
dox elements who reportedly
feared he would not receive a
sufficiently Orthodox education
from his Russian-born father and
mother.

of Threat on Life

LONDON — Sir Leslie Plum-
mer, Laborite MP, told the high
court Tuesday that his life had
been threatened after he intro-
duced a bill in parliament to
make it a criminal offense to
insult a person because of his
color or religion.
Sir Leslie appeared in connec-
tion with his suit for damages
for libel against a former mem-
ber of the British right-wing
National Party who in a Council
election address called Sir Leslie
the "pro-black MP."
The former member is John
Tyndall, who was expelled from
the party and who is now in jail
serving a sentence for violation
of the British Public Order Act
along with British National
Socialist leader Colin Jordan and
two other neo-Nazi leaders.
