on a charge of common assult
and was put on probation for one
year.
The boy, Gary Wayne Sownby,
had stuck a toy pistol into the
ribs of Rabbi Mayer Grunwald
who was walking along the
street here. Sownby was aided
by a younger accomplice whose
name was withheld because of
his age and who has since been
tried in Juvenile Court here. The
incident received prominent play
in Toronto newspapers because
it coincided with the recent wave
of swastika daubings.

wife of the Vice President of

her to withdraw her name as
honorary chairman of the
Israeli Ambassador's Ball to be
held here in Washington honor-

sister republic of Israel.

Jewish Victims Urge
Indemnification Law

WASHINGTON, (JTA) — A
delegation representing Jewish
victims of Nazi persecution
called on Georg von Lilienfeld,
Minister of the West German
Embassy, to urge that Germany
expedite and broaden a new
German indemnification law to
benefit Hitler's victims.
The delegation, headed by
Moses Socachevsky, the group's
president, and Felix Lasky, its
secretary, stressed the need for
inclusion of Eastern European
victims in the indemnification,
the re-opening of disability
cases, and designation of more
physicians to issue final certi-
ficates of disability with crea-
ton of facilities outside of New
York City to serve victims now
residing in other cities.
