NEW YORK, (JTA) —A

COBLENZ (JTA) — The pre-
siding judge in the trial of 12
former Nazis being tried for the
murder of some 35,000 Jews
in Minsk during the German
wartime occupation flatly told
two former German judges in
the Russian city that he did not
believe their statements that
they knew nothing about the sys-
tematic extermination of Jews in
the area. •
Statements to that effect were
made by Rudolf Baade of Ber-
lin, who was a public prosecutor
at Minsk, and Wilhelm Netz of
Neustadt, who was counsel to
a special court in Minsk. They
said they knew nothing about
the exterminations in their tes-
timony.
The judge, indicating he was
fully acquainted with the
slaughter program at • Minsk,
said "it is difficult for us to be-
lieve you." At that point, Netz
said that he had been given
some information on the kill-
ings by superiors.

sized the need for a massive
aid program to the Congo.
President Kennedy, in a mes-
sage to the more than 500
delegates representing 100,000
members throughout the coun-
try, congratulated the ORT "ef-
forts on behalf of the people
of the 19 countries in which
your vocational programs have
proved so effective."
"Through your educational
programs," the President said,
"you have provided many thou-
sands with the technical and in-
dustrial skills, which enable them
to become productive members
of their communities and to
achieve a significant measure of
self-respect and well-being. Your
new programs in West Africa,
which have been developed in
cooperation with the Agency for
International Development, de-
serve special commendation."
The ORT board of directors ;
in an earlier afternoon session,
approved projects for 1963 that
would assign top priority in the
coming year to plans in aid of
the 100,000 Algerian Jewish
refugees who arrived in France
recently and to the extensive
program of youth training in
Israel.
With respect to France, the
board noted the recent open-
ing of a large new ORT train-
ing center for North African
refugees in Marseilles, con-
structed with the financial
help of the Martha S. Stern
Trust of Cincinnati, the en-
rollment of 1,000 additional
students in existing ORT
schools in Paris and other
cities, formation of 16 special
courses for adult refugees and
successful completion of nego-
tiations with the French gov-
ermnent under terms of which
ORT will shortly establish a
new ORT vocational school in
Toulouse.
In Israel, reports submitted
indicated that ORT schools. and
technical institutes had enrolled
over 15,000 persons in 1962 and
expected to enroll over 17,000
this year. It was noted that new
trade high schools were estab-
lished in immigrant settlements
and industrial training was ex-
tended to many Yeshivas or re-
ligious schools. The board heard
from Mrs. Helen Rosenberg,
president of Women's American
ORT, that her group of 65,000
women would in the next few
years erect four entirely new
centers for apprentice training
in Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv
and Jaffa.
Samuel H. Daroff of Philadel-
phia, national honorary chair-
man of the United Jewish Ap-
peal, represented his organiza-
tion in ceremonies commemorat-
ing the 25th anniversary of the
founding of UJA. He was pre-
sented with a scroll of honor
which noted the UJA's "historic
effort of saving lives, rescue and
reconstruction of our people," by
Adolph Held, vice-president of
the American ORT Federation.

budget of $7,702,700 for the
maintenance of over 600 trade
and vocational ORT schools in
19 countries, which will provide
instruction to 40,000 persons in
1963, was announced at the 41st
national conference of the Amer-
ican ORT Federation by Dr. Wil-
liam Haber, president of the
organization..
The conference ratified an
agreement with the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee which will
provide $1,950,000 for ORT ac-
tivities overseas in 1903. Over
$1,000,000 is anticipated f r o
membership income of Women's
American ORT and other affili-
ated groups. The balance of ORT
financial needs overseas are ex-
pected to be met by ORT or-
ganizations in other countries
and by contributions from gov-
ernments and communities in
which the schools are located.

Communist-Sponsored
Arab Rally Banned in
Galilee by Governor

TEL AVIV, (JTA)—The mili-
tary governor in Upper Galilee
ordered the closing of roads
leading to two Arab villages in
the area to bar a Communist-
sponsored meeting to oppose a
decision to build a township near
these villages.
Raana and Dir el Assad, the
two villages, are part of the area
on which the new township will
be built. All owners of land in
the area received full compensa-
tion or parcels of land nearby in .
exchange but Communists have
been using the transactions to
incite Arabs against the town-
ship plans.
Some tension has been re-
ported in Arab villages in the
Galilee where Communists con-
tinued to seek to stir up the
Arabs, officials said.
