Finds '63 Was Year
of Understanding

JERUSALEM, Israel—President Joseph Kasavubu of the
Congo Republic (left) is shown acting as godfather to an
infant born at Hadassah's Adolf and Felicia Leon Mother and
Child Pavilion, which is part of the Hadassah-Hebrew Univer-
sity Medical Center in Jerusalem. Wearing a blue satin skull-
cap, the African Chief of State held the crying Eytan Shalom
Schwartzbard immediately following the circumcision cere-
mony at Hadassah's Medical Center Synagogue. Looking on at
right is Madame Kasavubu. This was a highlight of the Presi-
dent's visit to Israel earlier this month.

British Organizations Intervene
With Bonn on Behalf of Refugees

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON—The West German
government received an urgent
appeal Tuesday from British or-
ganizations concerned with aid
to refugees asking that measures
on compensation for victims of
Nazism now being debated in
the West German Bundestag be
widened to cover several cate-
gories to avert serious hardship
and injustice.
A deputation of the standing
conference of British organiza-
tions for aid to refugees, headed
by Lord Astor, met with Von
Etzdorf, the West German Am-
bassador in London, and pre-
sented him with a letter and
memorandum on the question of
West German indemnification
for stateless victims of Nazi
persecution.
The memorandum noted that
a sharp distinction had been
made in earlier compensation
laws between refugees - perse-
cuted by the Nazis on grounds
of race, religion and ideology,

and those persecuted on grounds
of nationality. The memoran-
dum declared that repeated ef-
forts to improve the lot of the
second category of victims had
failed and that the proposed
new law, unless amended again,
would fail to provide in the
main body of the law for refu-
gees persecuted on grounds of
nationality. Such failure, the
memorandum asserted, might
mean discrimination against
such refugees.
The memorandum also ex-
pressed concern over serious
omissions in earlier legislation
which had remained unreme-
died, citing the fact that the
pending new law would not pro-
vide compensation for depend-
ants of victims who have died.
In Britain alone, the memoran-
dum asserted, at least 40 claim-
ants have died in 1962. The
memorandum was signed by rep-
resentatives of churches, mem-
bers of Parliament of both
Houses and leading personalities
in the arts, higher education
and public life.

Be Kind

JERUSALEM, ( JTA ) —Isra el's
cabinet decided at its regular
meeting yesterday to shorten
the conscription period for both
boys and girls.
While no details were an-
nounced, it was believed that
the army service period for Is-
raeli draftees will be lessened
by several months due to the
fact that statistics indicate that,
in the next few years, more
boys and girls in this country
will reach draft age than here-
tofore.
The decision will be discussed
with parliament's Foreign Af-
fairs and Security Committee,
after which a new draft law will
be submitted to the Knesset. At
the meeting, the cabinet also
approved plans for awarding
special medals to Jerusalem
residents who acted as home

NEW YORK, (JTA) — The
year 1963 has seen "more pro-
gress toward inter - religious
understanding than any previous
year," Dr. Joachim Prinz, presi-
dent of the American Jewish
Congress, reported to the na-
tional governing council of his
organization. Rabbi Prinz listed
the year's major developments
as follows:
1. The Conference on Reli-
gion and Race held in Chicago
last January at which Protes-
tant, Catholic and Jewish lead-
ers "for the first time sat down
together to map out a joint
strategy in support of their joint
commitment to the civil rights
sruggle."
2. The Vatican Council in
Rome, "from which has emanat-
ed a new ecumenical spirit em-
bracing not only Christians but
men of all faiths." Dr. Prinz
noted that American bishops
participating in the Council had
been among the most vigorous
supporters of the proposed
schema on Catholic attitudes to-
ward the Jews which, "when
finally adopted, promises to
establish a new relationship be-
tween the people of the Old and
New Testaments."
3. Announcement by Pope
Paul VI of plans to visit the
Holy Land which Dr. Pinz de-
scribed as "tangible recognition
of the shared roots of the Jew-
ish and Christian traditions."
4. The growing number of
inter-religious "dialogues" in
communities across the country
in which differences between
religious groups on issues of
public concern are discussed "in
free and open debate in an at-
mosphere of mutual trust and
respect."

Knesset Rejects
Debate on Inviting
Germany to Fair

JERUSALEM (JTA)—Israel's
parliament rejected a motion
by the Herut party for debate
on the question of inviting West
Germany to participate in the
forthcoming Near East Trade
Fair in Tel Aviv. Finance and
Trade Minister Pinhas Sapir
said he had never heard the
party oppose trade with West
Germany to which Israel export-
ed $40,000,000 worth of prod-
ucts during the past year.
The Minister said that Israel
was interested in expanding its
exports and that the Govern-
ment had instructed the Corn-
merce Ministry last January to
inform the Tel Aviv municipal-
ity that West Germany was to
be treated just like any other
country-- regarding participation
in the fair.
The Municipality has not yet
sent an invitation to West Ger-
Germany and it announced that
before doing so, it would con-
sult the Foreign Ministry.
