News — was charged here this
week with "distorting the truth"
about the situation of the Jews
in the Soviet Union by publish-

The charge was made in a
statement by the Jewish Labor
Committee issued by Adolph
Held, its national chairman.
Held said that Soviet claims
that more than 7,500 Jews
were elected to local govern-
ment offices in the Soviet Union
"is nothing to boast about. A
closer look at the facts," he said
"shows that as of 1960 more
than 1,800,000 such deputies
were elected. The so-called
`large' numbers which the So-
viets claim comes to less than
one-half of one per cent of the
total of elected deputies."
"Then," Held continued, "the
Soviets say that although Jews
are 1.1 per cent of the popula-
tion, they rank third in the
number of students. They cite a
figure of some 420,000 Jews as
having either secondary or spe-
cialized education.

Israel Pays Tribute
to- Pioneers of State

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish. News)

JERUSALEM — Nation-wide
celebrations to mark "Schnat
Rishonim," the year of the
pioneers, began here Tuesday
when an entire parliamentary
session was devoted to a tribute
to the first settlers in pre-state
Some 40 guests, veteran set-
tlers and descendants of the
founding pioneers attended the
session and were later received
by President Ben-Zvi at his offi-
cial residence. Prime Minister
Ben-Gurion later addressed a
mass meeting at the Jerusalem
Cultural Center, where thou-
sands joined the nation's lead-
ers in the tribute. Previously,
the 40 pioneers were given a
reception at city hall.

A new American-Israel defen-
sive relationship was asked by
National Commander Morton
London of the Jewish War Vet-
erans of the U.S.A., because Is-
rael "faces a greater menace by
Soviet jet bombers and rockets
in the hands of her Arab neigh--
hors than America does from
In a statement supporting
President Kennedy's strong stand
on removal of IL-28 Soviet jet
bombers from Cuba, London
stressed that the United Arab
Republic is equipped with the
far more modern and dangerous
TU-16 Soviet jet bombers.

There were 5,855,000 new
passenger cars and 917,000 new
commercial vehicles registered
in the United States in 1961.
