rael's cabinet, at its Sunday ses-
sion, requested a full . report
from Minister of Police Behor
Shitreet about a demonstration
staged Saturday when heavy
police reinforcements narrowly

averted a clash beween mem-
bers of the League Against Re-
ligious Compulsion and resi-
dents of the ultra-Orthodox
quarter of Mea Shearim.
The cabinet request followed
a complaint voiced to the gov-
ernment by Interior Minister
Moshe Shapiro, who charged
that the organizers of the
League demonstration had gone
beyond the conditions laid
down when they were given a
permit for Saturday's demon-
Several hundred members of
the League, many of them arm-
ed with clubs,, tried to pene-
trate into the Mea Shearim
quarter. They called for support
of • the League's demands for
civil (instead of religious) mar-
riages, permission of automobile
traffic on the Sabbath, and
abolition of Israel's blue laws.
About a dozen trucks carry-
ing the League's demonstrators,
many of whom had come from
leftist kibbutzim, were halted
by the police, and the demon-
strators were forced to walk
afoot. Policemen standing shoul-

der to shoulder kept the secu-

ligious population, as the
League demonstrators brandish-
ed their clubs and shouted in-
vectives at the Orthodox.
Finally, the secularists held a
rally attended by about 2,000
persons, while police kept the
religious elements from break-
ing up the demonstration. As
religious persons heckled the
secularist speakers, police once
again intervened to keep the
two sides separated.

Denver Community
Disputes Opening of
Center on Sabbath
DENVER (JTA)—Officials . of

the Denver Jewish Community
Center and of the Denver Rab-
binical Association announced
here that a series of meetings
would be held to develop a
mutually acceptable solution to
differences over opening of the
Center on the Sabbath.
At the first meeting of repre-
sentatives of the two organiza-
tions, Sanford Solender, execu-
tive vice-president of the Jewish
Welfare Board, and Rabbi Aryeh
Lev, director of the YWB chap-
laincy division, attended as
The meetings were agreed on
after the Center, bowing to the
wishes of the rabbinical group,
cancelled plans for a poll of
members as to whether the Cen-
ter should be open on the Sab-
bath. Solender discussed at the
initial joint meeting the experi-
ences of other Centers with the
problem, particularly in Detroit,
Cleveland and Chicago.
_ It was agreed that the first
step should be creating a climate
of harmony, common u n de r-
standing and common objectives.
For that goal, the broad aspects
of Center - synagogue relation-
ships will be studied at future
meetings, as well as specific
questions of Center Sabbath pro-

August Bondi's life was spent in battling
injustice. When not quite fifteen, Bondi
took part in the Revolution of 1848 in his
native Austria. After the revolution failed,
the Bondis emigrated to America. That
was the beginning of the odyssey of
August Bondi which was to place him
beside John Brown in Kansas.
An ardent abolitionist, Bondi arrived
in Kansas in May, 1855, in the company
of Jacob Benjamin. There they were
joined by Theodore Wiener. The three
immigrants settled on the Mosquito
branch of Pottawatomie creek, near Osa-
watomie. Bondi's abolitionist statements
soon brought him to the attention of the
pro-slavery border ruffians. His life was
threatened and Bondi enlisted the aid of
John Brown's sons. When Brown himself
arrived, Bondi and Wiener promptly
joined his military company. In the civil

war that followed the Pottawatomie Mas-
sacre, in which John Brown executed five
border ruffians, Bondi took part in almost
every battle as a follower of "God's
angry man."
During the Civil War Bondi served for
three years in the 5th Kansas Volunteer
Cavalry. He was finally invalided out of
the service because of serious wounds
suffered in Arkansas. At the war's end
Bondi settled in Salina, becoming one of
its leading citizens.
Bondi's credo, stated in his autobiog-
raphy, is still relevant to modern prob-
lems. "I do not regret," he wrote, "a single
step or instance in my long life, to further
and assist the realization of my devout
wishes that tyranny and despotism may
perish, and bigotry and fanaticism may be
wiped from the face of the earth." August
Bondi devoted his life to these aims.
