youths, said by police to be admirers of
George Rockwell and his American Nazi
Party, were under arrest Tuesday on charges
of attacking a school building and a private
home with submachine gun fire.
The four were taken into custody at their
homes Monday morning and held for arraign-
ment after they were refused bail. Police said
they found and confiscated a variety of Nazi
emblems, stickers and a complete Nazi uni-
form in the room of one of the youths, John
E. Collins, Jr. 17. They were charged with
owning and firing a machinegun and with
possessions . of "Nazi oriented" publications.
The‘ first charge is a Federal offense and the
FBI was notified.
Police said that the youths fired a burst into. a
window of the Huntington High School which two of
them attended until they dropped out this spring and
the other two are attending. All four were in diffi-
culties in school. They also fired a, burst at the home
of Elizabeth Cubley, a teacher of English who had
reported- to parents of two of the youths that they
were failing in her class.
The other three defendants were Richard Hohen-
rath, Jr., 18, Edmund Kennedy, 17, and Stephen
The gunfire attacks occurred late Friday eve-
ning during a thunderstorm. No one was injured.
The slugs riddled the front door and shattered furni-
ture in the home where the English teacher lived,
and smashed windows in the high school.

gans were painted on a wall of the Arlington-Fair-

LONDON, (JTA) — Algeria's Prime Minister Ahmed Ben Bella has told an Egyptian
newspaper interviewer that Israel "must first be struck in Africa before it is struck in Tel
Aviv," because Israel's influence in Africa has "saturated" that continent "with the imperialist
Zionist idea," according to dispatches from Cario received here.
The daily Al Ahram, of Cario, considered the unofficial organ of the Egyptian gov-
ernment, published the purported interview with Ben Bella, quoting him as saying that
the Arab states could strike at Israel through unity. The Algerian leader was reported plan-
ning on going to Cairo later this month, thence with Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser
to Addis Ababa, to attend a meeting in the Ethiopian capital by the Pan-African Congress.
Joins Nasser in Call for 'Liberation of Palestine'
Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser and Algerian Prime Minister
Ahmed Ben Bella issued a joint communique in Algiers pledging the two countries to "liber-
ate" Palestine from the hands off "imperialism" and "colonialism." The statement, released
just before the Egyptian ruler had completed -his five-day state visit to the capital of Algeria,
called also for the recovery of "all the rights of the Palestinian Arab Republic."
It was noted here that the wording of that part of the communique dealing with "pales-
tine" was similar to the clauses against Israel adopted last month in Cairo, when Egypt, Iraq
and Syria agreed to form a new United Arab Republic Federation.
The French Foreign Ministry minimized the significance of the Egyptian-A lgerian
communique, which, it was agreed, read like a "declaration of war" against Israel. French
sources contended that the fact that the only unity reached between Algeria and Egypt in
connection with Nasser's visit was "the vocal unity of an anti-Israel declaration" demon-
strated that the two countries were still "far apart" and did not represent a serious danger.
The mass circulation French paper, L'Aurore, assailed the communique in an editorial
and urged President de Gaulle "not even to consider visiting Algeria while a friendly country,
Israel, is openly attacked." Under the signature of editor-in-chief Robert Bony, the newspaper
called on the President's office to "immediately" deny that any such visit was planned.
The French Foreign Office, although minimizing the possible dangers to Israel of the
Arab unity drive, has at the same time warmly welcomed President Kennedy's press confer-
ence declaration that the United States would protect. Israel's security. It called the statement
"a most welcomed repitition of a known truth which must not be forgotten, however."
Zeev Shek, Israeli Minister in Paris, handed to the French Foreign Ministry a copy of Israel's
complaint to the United Nations Security Council, warning of Arab plans to attack Israel. Shek also gave the
Foreign Ministry a copy of Prime Minister David Ben Gurion's speech in Parliament on foreign policy and
the Middle East. The Israeli Prime Minister said in that address that there was no question that the Arab
countries were planning such an attack.
Shek's meeting with officials of the French Foreign Ministry's North African and Levantine
departments was described as "most cordial!' It also covered a review of Col. Nasser's visit to Algeria. It was
generally believed that the Israeli approach to the French Foreign Office was prompted by Israel's wish to
convey to France the seriousness with which Israel regards the new developments.

High officials of the State Department participated in the deliberations, which lasted two hours and 25
minutes. Leaving the State Department, members of the delegation refused to comment on the specific topics

Moscow Claims Germany Finances
Atomic Weapons Tests in Israel
LONDON, (JTA) — West Germany has allocated 30,000,000 Deutsclunarks
($7,500,000) "to finance atomic experiments in Israel." and joint work is now
.under way between West German and Israeli specialists "creating nuclear weapons,"
Pravda, official organ of the Communist Party of the USSR, charged, according
,to reports from Moscow in the London press.
Refraining to mention the fact that German scientists are at work for the
-Egyptian government on missile and jet projects to use nonconventional warheads
against Israel, Pravda alleged also that West Germany and Israel share intelli-
gence data from the Arab states, - coordinating these "spying activities" in a
center located in West Germany.
'According to Pravda, that "fact" had been brought to light at a "number
of trials in the United Arab Republic of Israeli spies." The newspaper also claimed
that West Germany is trying to penetrate Arab markets, and stated: ."If more
proof of Bonn's 'sympathy' for the Arab struggle is needed, we can point to the
.constant military aid to the aggressive quarters in Israel."
According to Pravda, Germany furnished Israel with "important strategic
goods" in the course of meeting Bonn's obligations under the Israel-Germany
Reparations Agreement, and "many Israeli officers were trained in West. Germany."
W. German Parliament Acts on Bill
Aimed at Curbing Scientists in UAIR
BONN, (JTA) — The draft of a bill to require express government permis-
sion to West Germannationals to participate in overseas work on certain types of
weapons and rockets has been completed for submission to Parliament.
The draft was prepared by a Parliamentary commission representing the
three West German political parties. The permission would be required for such
work on atomic, bacterial and chemical weapons and on rockets and violation
would be punishable.
The bill was aimed at the work of West Germany scientists and technicians
on Egyptian advanced weapons systems, though the West German government
has formally denied that its nationals were working on A-B-C weapons.
Der Spiegel, a leading German news magazine, carries a report in its
current issue stating that nearly 500 "well-paid German technicians" are engaged
in Egypt on that country's development program for jet planes and rockets. The
magazine traces the development of the Egyptian armament program with German
help back to 1950 when, it reported, "the first 100 Germans arrived on the Nile."
The magazine goes into particulars about the Germans employed by the
Cairo regime since 1960. It stresses that some of the Germans in the Egyptian
employ consult regularly with Dr. Hans Eisele, an ex-Nazi accused of war crimes,
who fled from Germany in 1958 when he faced arrest.
