All five, according- to police,
are members of the "National

right-wing organization.
Two of the youths, each 19,
were named as Jose Antonio

names of the three others were
withheld because of their
younger ages.
Police said the five had con-
fessed to throwing the Molotov
cocktails at the suburban syna-
gogue in Florida, on the out-
skirts of Buenos Aires, while
religious services were being
conducted in the house of wor-

"Concept of Captive Child"
Pressed in Prayer Dispute

To recite prayers in the pub-
lic school would be to deprive
"the captive child" of his reli-
gious freedom, declared George
Maislen, president of the United
Synagogue of America, in a
statement submitted to the Sen-
ate Judiciary Committee. He
urged that no legislation be
enacted by the Congress which
would "compel or threaten to
compel the children of America

House of Lords
Debates Shechita

JWV Chief Urges
U.S. to Take Israeli
Pounds for Missiles

LONDON, (JTA)—The House
of Lords debated a motion in-
troduced by Lord Somers for a
second reading of a slaughter of
animalS bill which would affect
the free practice of shechita in
The bill, if passed, would re-
peal certain sections of the
Slaughter of Animals Act of
1958 which contained a proviso
that the Act did not apply to the
Jewish method of slaughter.
Lord Somers denied that
there was any motive of anti-
Semitism behind the blil. He
said the bill would not trespass
on the rights of conscientious
Jews. At the same time he as-
serted that, in the Jewish meth-
od of slaughter, the animal was
to a certain degree conscious
prior to the slaughter. He
stressed that the method of kill-
ing without rendering the ani-
mal unconscious had been abol-
ished in Switzerland and other
countries, and said the "time has
come for us to follow suit."
Opposing Lord Somers' mo-
tion for a second reading of
the bill, Lord Jessel said that,
if the measure became law,
sbechita would be illegal and
upwards of 200,000 persons in
England would be unable to
eat meat or chicken. Stressing
that it had not been proven
that shechita was a cruel
method of slaughter, Lord
Jessel said that "the tremen-
dous weight of authority was
against Lord Somers' argu-
ments. While he did not be-
lieve there were anti-Semitic
motives behind the bill, Lord
Jessel said the measure was
"misguided, sloppy and found-
ed on ignorant prejudice."
Also opposing a second read-
ing of the bill, was Lord Oswald,
Joint Parliamentary Secretary
of the Ministry of Agriculture.
He said that it was the govern-
ment's view that unless much
more convincing evidence be-
came available on whether she-
chita was more cruel than other
forms of slaughter "and this had
been proven by experiments, "it
would be "wrong to impose such
hardships on a racial group
which we had so much reason to
respect and who had been per-
secuted or imposed upon in so
many countries but never in
this." He said he "could not ad-
vise the House to vote for a
second reading" on the bill.
Lord Cohen told the House
that the bill was contrary to
Jewish law and would affect
"Jewish consciences." While he
would not say that anti-Semit-
ism inspired or activated Lord
Somers, Lord Cohen pointed out
that "there was anti-Semitism in
the agitation against Jewish
Lord Cohen said there was
scientific evidence to support
the conclusion that shechita
was humane and would al-
most immediately render an
animal unconscious. He
suggested that, if there were
any doubts about whether
shechita were humane, the
government could invite a
panel of experts who would
report on the purely scientific
aspects of the matter.
He said the passage of the
bill would plunge into deep sor-
row tens of thousands of loyal
Jews in this country who, for
over 3,000 years, had ordered
their lives by uninterrupted tra-
dition of what they regarded as
Divine truth.
Among the supporters of
Lord Somers' motion for a sec-
ond reading was Lord Hadding-
ton, who described shechita as a
"barbarous" method. Other sup-
porters of the bill included Lady
Summerskill and Lords Dowd-
ing and Huntingdon. The debate
on the bill will continue.

National Commander Morton
London of the Jewish War Vet-
erans of the U.S.A. asked the
Department of State, in the
light of developments in India
and Cuba, to facilitate Israel's
acquisition of Hawk defensive
anti-aircraft missiles by permit-
ting Israel to pay in local cur-
rency—Israeli pounds—just as
India has now been permitted
to pay for arms in rupees.
London, of Teaneck, N.J.,
who returned last month from
Israel, cited the menace to
Israel by the continuing flow
of Soviet jet bombers and mis-
siles to three Arab states sur-
rounding Israel, the United
Arab Republic, Syria, and Iraq.
He noted that UAR jet pilots
and missile technicians are be-
ing trained by the Sino-Soviet
bloc, a fact that figured in
America's decision to sell the
defensive Hawk missile to
