Anti-Semitism Is
Rampant in Toronto

TORONTO, (JTA)—A three-
week spate of anti-Semitic van-
dalism continued here as a Jew-
ish organizational center and a
Jewish-owned shop in a Toronto
suburb were smeared with swas-
tikas.
Targets of the vandals were
the Borochov Center, which
houses a Yiddish-Hebrew School
and kindergarten and various
Zionist and other Jewish groups;
and a Jewish-owned variety store
several blocks away: On both
buildings swastikas were
smeared in black paint on the
walls and doors.
Earlier this month, swastikas
and the slogan, "Jews die," were
found smeared on two syna-
gogues in downtown Toronto.
Toronto Chief Chief of Police
James Mackey assured a delega-
tion representing the Canadian
Jewish Congress—Bnai Br i t h
Community Relations Committe
that the police were giving the
incidents their complete atten-
tion. The delegation consisted of
Sydney M. Harris, national chair-
man of the committee, and J. S.
Midanik, regional chairman.

NEWS — Friday, M ay 24, 1963

WASHINGTON — The Soviet
proposal for a nuclear free zone
in the Mediterranean is a propa-
ganda move aimed at ousting the
United States Sixth Fleet and
does not pertain to develop-
ments in the United Arab
Republic or other nations bor-
dering on the Mediterranean,
State Department sources said
Tuesday.
The Russians referred only to
water-borne nuclear weapons in
the Mediterranean. The only
such weapons known to exist
there are the missiles of the
United States Sixth Fleet. The
proposal was interpreted here
as having nothing to do with
any construction of nuclear
weapons in the Middle East or
any other Mediterranean coun-
tries.
