WASHINGTON—A group of
16 Christian clergymen, a
rabbi among them, advisors to
the religious foundations at
Purdue University, appealed
Tuesday to President Kennedy
to include in the 1964 Foreign
Assistance Legislation a clause
to deny aid to any nation dis-
criminating against American
citizens because of race, creed
or color.
Such discrimination has been
a common practice of Arab

League nations against Ameri-
can Jews.
The letter was signed by the
Rev. Ellsworth E. Koonz, .presi-
dent of the Purdue Campus
Ministers, on behalf of 14 fellow
clergy, and Rabbi Gerald Engel
of the Bnai Brith Hillel Founda-
tion.
The signators called on the
President "To inspire the Ameri-
can people with your leadership
by including the Foreign As-
sistance Act of 1954, Clause 106,

Dr. Samuel Belkin

MIAMI BEACH (JTA) — The
growth of Yeshiva University in
New York over the past two
decades, from an enrollment of
850 students to 5,200, with an
increase in faculty members
from 94 to 1,200, was described
here as a "remarkable achieve-
ment" credited to Dr. Samuel
Belkin, president of the institu-
tion.
Dr. Belkin was the guest of
honor at a reception tendered
him here by several hundred
national and Florida leaders
participating in a week-long
series of events centered about
Yeshiva's $30,000,000 develop-
ment program.
The number of constituent
schools of the university, it was
pointed out, has grown in • the
20 years from four to 17; the
budget has increased by 400
per cent from $444,000 to $19,-
000,000; and the physical plant
has developed from one build-
ing to four major teaching cen-
ters valued at $31,000,000.

`Rehabilitate' General
Slain Under Stalin

LONDON, (JTA) — Soviet
General Jacob Shmushkevitch,
twice awarded highest Com-
munist honors as a "Hero of the
Soviet Union" and top com-
mander of the Soviet Air Force
during World War II, was "re-
habilitated" in a eulogy in
"Red Star," organ of the
USSR armed forces, 21 years
after he had been murdered
during the Stalin purges of
prominent Jews, according to a
Moscow dispatch received here.
General Shmushkevitch was
the son of a poor Jewish shoe-
maker in a small Lithuanian
town. He joined the Red Army
in 1918 and rose to great
heights as military strategist
and administrator. Among other
distinctions he held was that
of candidate for the Central
Committee of the Communist
Party of the USSR. He disap-
peared in 1942. "Red Star" hail-
ed his memory as a "genius"
who had been a victim of the
"personality cult" — meaning
Stalinism.

entered with false credentials.
Rockwell, who was laughed
at and jeered through a good
part of his address, told the
group that he was an admirer
of Elijah Muhammad, leader of
the Black Muslim sect.

LONDON, (JTA) — Street
clashes broke out at the close
of a meeting addressed by
fascist leader Oswald Mosley,
in the town hall of Kensington,
a London suburb.
After Mosley left the hall,
some of his followers unfurled
banners and began shouting at
members of the anti-fascist Yel-
low Star movement, which
sponsored a protest rally across
the street from the town hall.
Individual members of both
groups left the meeting places
and tangled in street fighting.
Scores of police, some with
dogs, broke up the main clashes
but scuffles continued in shop
doorways before the fighting
finally was halted. Four men
were arrested. A policeman was
hurt when he moved into action
against five Mosley followers
attacking a Yellow Star mem-
ber.

Stand Trial on
Espionage Charge

raeli Arabs charged with main-
taining contact with Egyptian
intelligence in the Gaza Strip,
and recruiting other Israeli

of the ring. Huhmad Hemed,
who is already serving a four-

der cross examination that he
was recruited by Said.

which Congress passed last year,
to demonstrate to the world at
large that Americans do not
want foreign nations which re-
ceive our aid to differentiate
between American citizens be-
cause of race or religion."
The letter declared that "un-
less the budget proposals for
1964 include this Anti-discrimi-
nation clause as part of the
Foreign Assistance Act your ad-
ministration's effort to me-
morialize Lincolns Emancipation
Proclamation will be considered
by many at home and abroad as
a mockery and a major conces-
sion to bigotry."
The administration has made
known in its 1964 budget pro-
posals submitted to Congress to
omit the clause in the 1963 law
pertaining to Arab bias against
Jews passed by Congress. The
clause gives the President
authority to withhold foreign
aid to such nations but does not
make this action mandatory.
The Purdue clergymen also
said they asked "urgently" that
the anti-bias clause not only be
included in the executive de-
partment's proposed budget for
1964 "but that you in the future
use the people's mandate to help
end discrimination against
American citizens that is still
taking place in some foreign
lands receiving American aid."
They added they wanted to
hear from the President "re-
garding this vital issue of re-
ligious and racial discrimina-
tion," and said also that they
hoped "to share" the Presi-
dent's requested reply "with
collegians participating in the
second annual Purdue Confer-
ence on International. Affairs."
The coference will be held in
West Lafayette, Ind., the cam-
pus site, March 14-16.

LONtION— Two BOAC air-
crew members were flown home
from Israel Monday and sus-
pended from duty pending an
inquiry into charges they ex-
hibited violently anti Semitic
behavior in an Israeli hotel bar.
Their flight captain ordered
them out of Israel after they
were accused of insulting Jews
in the bar. Patrons complained
that the BOAC men cursed Is-
rael and shouted at them: "You
should all be driven into the
sea. You have no right to exist."

-

Banned for Anti-Semitism
Theodore Ledy, manager of
the Avia Hotel near Lydda, said
that he had agreed with BOAC
"to keep quiet" about the inci-
dent, but that it was "leaked to
Israeli newspapers by a custom-
er at the bar." He added that
there was "no fighting and no
damage done, but it is still a
serious matter."
A BOAC spokesman .in Lon-
don said: "We did not try to
hush up the matter", and added
that the inquiry would get un-
derway as soon as the two men
whose names were not disclosed
returned to London.

Italian Neo-Nazis
Seek to Publish
Anti-Semitic Book

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

ROME—Informed sources re-
ported here Wednesday that
Italian neo-Nazis have been try-
ing to find a publisher willing
to print 30,000 copies of the
viciously anti-Semitic "P 1 o t
Against the Church."
The neo-N a z i s reportedly
were ready to provide an imme-
diate advance cash payment of
$30,000 to $40,000 for the order.
They want that many copies for
distribution in the next election
campaign.
Jewish sour c es indicated
doubts that any reputable pub-
lishing house technically capa-
ble of such a publication job
would accept such a bid.
