Two Anti-Semitic Groups
Are Banned in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES, (JTA) — Argentine Jewish leaders ex-
pressed gratification over the action of the Argentine government
in banning Tacuara and another extremist group, but cautioned
that the real test would be on how vigorously the orders were
The Tacuara, an extreme right-wing youth group with a long
record of anti-Semitic expressions and assaults on Jews, and the
Guardia Tesrauradora Nationalista (GRN) were ordered sup-
pressed in a decree signed Friday by President Jose Maria Guido
and Interior Minister General Enrique Rauch.
"It is the purpose and fundamental duty of governments to
insure public tranquility, internal peace, respect for the human
person and the essential rights of all," the order stated. "Con-
sidering that the Tacuara and GRN activities consist of personal
aggression and acts of violence and that it is inconceivable that
in an organized society there should be attacks against the
ideological, political or religious pluralism which constitute the
basis of the democratic structure, it is ordered that any activity
of both groups is prohibited, their headquarters and centers
closed down."
Jewish sources said the decree was a "good measure" by
the government which satisfied a strong feeling of public opinion
that everything would depend on the vigor of enforcement. They
said it was likely that the two groups would go underground
in response to the ban. Alberto Ezcurra Uriburu, chief of the
Tacuara, was arrested well before the ban was published and is
now under government detention. Simultaneously, 14 Tacuara
members were arrested in Tres Arroyos on charges of painting
swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans in the city. Various firearms
were found in possession of the members.
The influential La Prensa reported that a meeting had been
held between Gen. Juan Carlos Ongania, commander-in-chief of
the Argentine Army, and Cardinal Antonio Caggiano, Archbishop
of Buenos Aires. La Prensa said that the general called the
attention of the - Cardinal to the ultra-nationalist propaganda
disseminated through the Catholic heirarchy by groups inter-
ested in "climbing to power." The general reportedly told the
prelate that such action was not conductive to internal peace.

Sen. Hart Co-Sponsors Peace Resolution

Bulletin — Special to The Jewish News
On Wednesday, Senator Philip Hart of Michigan, together with Senators
Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota, Ernest Gruening of Alaska, Joseph Clark of
Pennsylvania and Wayne Morse of Oregon, introduced a resolution in the U.S.
Seansta.te calling for the reduction and control of nuclear armaments in the Middle

The resolution urges the creation of an international policing system to
enforce such an agreement.
It asks for the reaffirmation of the Tripartite Agreement of 1950 for the
protection of Israel's security and calls for the United States, through the United
Nations or directly, to devise means to bring an end to recriminations and
incitement to riots which contribute to tensions in the Middle East.

At his press conference on Wednesday, President Kennedy said that the
United States, acting through the United Nations or through means of its own
waosutl. d aim to prevent "aggressors or - preparations for aggression" in the Middle

In reply to a question on the explosive Middle East situation, the President
said," we support the security of both Israel and her neighbors," 0 and stated:
"We strongly oppose the use of force or threat of force in the middle East
and we also seek to limit the spread of communism in the Middle East which
would of course destroy the independence of people. This Government has been
and remains as strongly opposed to the use of force or the threat of force in the
Near East. In the event of aggression or preparations for aggressions, either
direct or indirect, we would support appropriate measures in the United States
or adopt causes of action on our own to prevent or to put a stop to such
aggressions. This of course has been the policy of the United States for some
WASHINGTON, (JTA) -- William S. Gaud, Assistant Administrator of the
U.S. Agency for International Development, in the Near East Bureau, indicated
in a CBS-TV interview that the State Department o p p-o s e s an amendment,
introduced in Congress by Rep. Seymour Halpern, New York Republican, to

Campaign Assured of $4,520,000

At the closing Allied Jewish Campaign din-
ner meeting Tuesday, from the left: seated, Israel
Ambassador to the United Nations Michael Ca-
may, guest speaker, and Max M. Fisher, president
of the Jewish Welfare Federation; standing, Al
Borman and Charles Gershenson, co-chairman of
the campaign.

While the Allied Jewish Campaign formally closed Tuesday, at the concluding
workers' dinner meeting held at the' Jewish Center, the work of all the divisions will
continue to assure enrollment of hundreds of potential contributors whose gifts are not yet
After hearing reports of division chairmen, whose solicitations accounted for a total of
$4,314,620, Isidore Sobeloff, executive vice president of the Jewish Welfare Federation and
the director of the campaign, in an analysis of the results, expressed confidence that, based
on offers of pledges made by a group not accounted for, and items certain to be recorded
soon as campaign pledges, the closest estimate of an additional sum to be received is
$206,000. This, he stated, assures the drive a total of $4,520,000.
"Beyond that figure," Sobeloff said, "we are in this together. I hope you will regard
the campaign as an unfinished job. We are not mere fund-raisers—we are a community.
Every dollar, every name announced tonight spells dedication to a better future for
ourselves and for those who will follow us." Declaring that it has been "a grand campaign,"
Sobeloff asked continuation of solicitations and pleaded: "Let us not rest because the job is
never done."
Charles H. Gershenson, campaign chairman, presided, and the principal address was
delivered by Michael Comay, Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations.
Other campaign leaders who participated in the program joined in commending
Gershenson for his dedicated efforts during the difficult and trying campaign months.
Gershenson described the Allied Jewish Campaign as a mechanism to support the
many local and national agencies and the means for reaching those aided in Israel and
around the world and "to express our identification with them.'' Commenting on the final
