Floridians Help Jewish National Fund to Develop Village in Israel

On Nov. 28, the new new
frontier village of Me Ami was
born in Israel, as a Nahal unit
(the agricultural arm of the
Defense Forces) of 200 young
men and women moved into this
border development reclaimed
and prepared by the Jewish
National Fund.
In the presence of Prime Min-
ister Levi Eshkol, Deputy De-
fense Minister Shimon Peres,
Army Chief of Staff Zvi Zur,
Joseph Weitz, Head of Land
Development Authority, Colonel
Samuel Ayal, Commander of
Nahal, Jewish National Fund
officials, and Arab dignitaries
of neighboring villages, Me Ami,
which in Hebrew means "Waters
of my people," was officially
launched as an integral nart of

Israel Finds
Torrential Rains
Mixed Blessing

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV—Farmers through-
out Israel welcomed Tuesday
the heavy rains of the past few
days, but drivers of vehicles in
southern Israel found the rains
a mixed blessing.
Beersheba was almost cut off
from the rest of Israel by the
torrential rains as were Sodom,
the Dead Sea Works and Eilat,
Israel's southernmost port city.
A downpour for 24 hours cre-
ated heavy currents in the nor-
mally dry desert gullies, mak-
ing passage impossible.
At Beersheba, a river which
runs south of the town was
flooded and its waters rose six
feet above a bridge. Even heavy
vehicles were unable to pass.
One driver was imprisoned for
four hours in a swift-running
current until he was extricated
by a helicopter. Others were
towed to safety.
Some cars reached Beersheba
from Tel Aviv after many hours
of delay, but transport south
and east of Beersheba was im-
possible. Industry in the Negev
was brought to a standstill.
Mordechai Maklef, director of
the Dead Sea Works, said that
construP"on of a bigger bridge
over the river south of Beer-
sheba was imperative because
forced stoppage of work because
of transport delays caused enor-
mous damage.
Small settlements west of
Lake Beeri were cut off for
many hours. Helicopters were
used to bring them essential
supplies. telephone lines
also were affected but they
were soon repaired. Weather
officials said more rain would
be coming.

Workers Strike in
Israel for 'Scale '

day strike of more than 30,000
civil servants hit the entire
country Monday with drastic re-
ductions in railroad and postal
services, and all non-essential
government offices closed down.
The strike was aimed at ex-
erting counter-pressure follow-
ing a strike carried out two
weeks ago by government-em-
ployed professionals, opposing a
recommendation by a govern-
ment committee that a single,
unified wage scale be put into
operation for all civil servants
—professional or non - profes-
sional. The non - professional
civil servants who went out on
strike are in favor of the com-
mittee's recommendations.
Some chaos prevailed in the
Post Office when cable office
clerks at first refused to handle
even press cables, but it was
later agreed that press cables as
well as the most urgent per-
sonal cables would be process-
ed. Some stoppage of trains
brought pressure on interurban
bus cooperatives, but the buses
provided adequate transporta-
tion for all.

Bavarian Minister
Backs Nazi Judges

MUNICH, (JTA) — Bavarian
Justice Minister Hans Ehard
warned against discrediting Ger-
man judges just because, they
belonged to the Nazi party.
In a controversial speech be-
fore the Bavarian provincial
parliament, Ehard, who is the
former Minister President of
the state, said that formal mem-
bership in the National Socialist
party or duty on a special Nazi
or Wermacht court should not
be the basis for removing judges
from office. "There has been
too much criticism of our judi-
cial system recently," Ehard
The Bavarian official admitted
when questioned by the opposi-
tion Social Democrats, however,
that allegations that a judge or
district attorney had taken part
in "excessive" death sentences,
should be investigated immedi-
ately and with painstaking de-
No more than 140 judges and
prosecutors have been retired
from office because of their
Nazi records while many others
are believed to be still on the
bench. Their presence, along
with other aspects of the Ger-
man judicial system, has been
the subject of wideranging criti-
cism in recent months. Light
sentences in war crimes trials
have contributed to what is de-
scribed here as a "crisis of con-
fidence" in the judiciary.

"It is not so much a question
of whether we should take up

If you consider the present cir-
cumstances in the Arab world

course seems the most approp-

widespread fears among West

Vandals Desecrate
Graves at Jewish
Cemetery in N. J.

Police are investigating vandal-
ism at Mt. Moriah Jewish Cem-

The tombstones of more than
half of the desecrated graves
were overturned, some of them
weighing between 600 and 1,000
pounds and many of them were
broken into several pieces.
This was the second such inci-
dent of vandalism at the cem-
etery. A year and a half ago, 36
tombstones were overturned and
five youths aged 12 to 15 were
detained after the incident. No
arrests have yet been made in
connection with the latest inci-
dent. Fairview police said that
they were "certain" that the
latest incident was not the work
of anti-Semites but of youths en-
gaged in "mischief."

Votes New Trial for
Bigot on Technicality

' (Direct JTA Teletype Wire

preme Court ordered a new trial
for Harold Fahy, accused of be-
ing a neo-Nazi anti-Semite, who
was sentenced to 60 days im-
prisonment for painting a swas-
tika on Beth Israel Synagogue
in Norwalk, Conn.
Fahy appealed to the Supreme
Court for a new trial on grounds
that a can of paint and a brush
were unlawfully seized from his
car at his home and were im-
properly used as evidence in
county court, Bridgeport, Conn.
Chief Justice Earl Warren de-

tice Arthur Goldberg favored
Fahy's appeal. Justice Harlan
dissented in an opinion in which
Justices Clark, Stewart and

Hassidic Youth Given Suspended
Sentences for Swastika Smearings

NEW YORK, (JTA) — Five
Hassidic yeshiva students who
were arrested last month on
charges of painting swastikas on
the walls of the building hous-
ing the Israeli Consulate-Gen-
eral and United Nations Mission
here were given suspended sen-
tences when they were arraign-
ed before a magistrate, and re-
leased. Prior to their release,
they expressed "repentance" for
their acts.
The defacing of the Israeli of-
fices with the Nazi symbol had
been an act of protest against
Israel in connection with the
rioting that had taken place in
Jerusalem, where ultra-zealous
factions tried to block Sabbath
traffic entering Jerusalem
through the Mandelbaum Gate.
Of the five arrested, two were
arraigned as juvenile delin-
quents, being under the age of
17, while those who were older

—aged between 17 and 22—
were charged with malicious
mischief. All five had been un-

attorneys since they were ar-
