Norbert Leiner of New jersey,
who was detained in Toronto
here more than a year ago as a
suspect sought by police for
burglary, had been arrested "il-
legally," was subjected by the
arresting officers to "foul and
abusive language," and was
"struck in the face twice with-
out any justification whatever,"
an Ontario Government Royal
Commission found.
The report on the Leiner
case, which was probed by the
Royal Commission since Jan-
uary, 1962, was filed here by
the head of the commission.
Justice Dalton Wells. Accord-
ing to the report, however,
Rabbi Leiner did refuse to re-
spond to "reasonable questions"
posed by the arresting officers.
The policemen, on the other
hand, were absolved of inten-
tional anti-Semitism but were
criticized for not understanding
the religious contentions of a
rabbi, 'Who, legitimately, object-
ed to riding in a police van on
a Friday night or to signing po-
lice documents on the Sabbath.
Rabbi Leiner, who is suing 18
policemen for beating him, was
arrested on a Friday night, Jan.
26, 1962; as he was on his way
home from religious services.
He was a teacher in a Hebrew
school in this city at the time.
Justice Wells pointed out in his
report that the rabbi in no way
resembled the suspect for whom
the police had spread a drag-

ord in the case to the Metro

Voice from Poland

For the first time since the liberation of Poland from the
Nazis, Jewish representative bodies in Poland are now addressing
themselves directly to American Jewish groups and individual
Jews with an appeal for contributions for a monument for
Jewish martyrs in Treblinka, where the Nazis annihilated 800,000
Jews. . . . Their appeal is being favorably considered by the
Joint Distribution Committee. . . . The Jewish Claims Confer-
ence will probably make a substantial contribution in response
to this appeal. . . . However, the Jews in Poland expect also
other Jewish groups—as well as individual Jews who lost their
relatives in Poland during the years of Nazi extermination—
to express their solidarity with the project by sending contribu-
tions, small and large. . . . The Treblinka project will cost
about 75 million zlotys, and the Polish government, as well as
individual Jewish and non-Jewish citizens in Poland, will con-
tribute to this sum. . . . But the Polish Committee for the
Building of a Monument at Treblinka is undertaking a world-
wide fund-raising campaign and the Jews in Poland expect
American Jews to share in this drive. . . . Jewish organizations
abroad which will make substantial contributions for the
projected monument will be invited to send delegations to
Poland to attend the unveiling ceremony. . . In Poland, Jews
have already started their fund-raising campaign and have so
far raised several hundred thousand zlotys. . . . The 800,000
Jews killed by the Nazis in the Treblinka death camp were
exterminated in one -year—from July 1942 till August 1943—
in 10 gas chambers there which were "operating" day and
night without a moment of interruption. . . . About 300,000 of
these Jewish victims were from Warsaw, the remainder were
brought in transports from other parts of Poland and from
10 other European countries. . . . The Polish government has
been very generous in financing commemorative undertakings;
it has recently spent 40 million zlotys on maintaining the
notorious Auschwitz camp as a memorial and intends to spend
another 80 billion zlotys in the immediate future. . . . It has
also spent about 20 million zlotys for an exhibit of the
Maidanec camp, where tens of thousands of Jews were annihilated.

Israel Cabinet Minister Blames UN
for Lack of Peace Pacts with Arabs

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM—An Israeli cab-
inet minister who took part in
the postwar Mixed Armistice
Agreement negotiations asserted
Wednesday that the United Na-
tions Palestine Conciliation
Commission was to blame for
the fact that peace treaties with
the Arab countries did not fol-
low the armistice pacts.
Eliyahu Sasson, Minister of
Posts, made the statement in an
address to a Jerusalem munici-
pality luncheon. He was one of
the signatories of the armistice
agreement with Egypt and he
participated in the peace talks
with the Arabs at Lausanne in
the same year.
He told the luncheon that Dr.

Ralph Bunche, negotiating on
behalf of the UN, obtained Arab
agreement to an armistice in
1949 by negotiating between
Israel and each of the Arab
countries separately. .
However, the PCC invited all
the Arab countries to sit at one
table and each delegation felt
it had to vie for the most ex-
treme stand against Israel, Sas-
son said—a competition, he
added, which still continues.
"Had we been able to see into
the future," he said, "we would
have taken a firmer stand on
such details, but we were cer-
tain the situation was tempo-
rary and that permanent peace
agreements would soon follow."

CBC Cancels Nazi
Interviews on TV

TORONTO, (JTA)—The Cana-
dian Broadcasting Corporation
announced the withdrawal of a
taped television interview with
Adrien Arcand, Canadian pre-
war Fascist leader.
Canadian Jewish Congress
leaders had discussed the taped
interview with CBC officials af-
ter the station had screened
it for use in its program. The
station said earlier it may use
only part of the interview; how-
ever, the announcement on Jan.
31 was that the interview will
not be used either "in whole"
or "in part."

Since Israel's Foreign Minister Golda Meir met last month
with President Kennedy, reports are being disseminated of an
alleged plan of the U.S. Government to settle the Arab refugee
problem. . • . The truth is that, while President Kennedy might
not have proposed to Mrs. Meir any detailed plan, he is
determined to bring about a solution of the refugee question
within the coming months. .. . President Kennedy, in his talk
with Mrs. Meir, appeared to have shown understanding for
Israel's inability to admit Arabs in masses. . . . Yet, there is
an essential divergence of views between him and Mrs. Meir
