by iliquirness at Frankfurt Trial

FRANKFURT (JTA) — The first

ing the Hungarian occupation testi-
fied that he paid $280,000 to de-
fendant Hermann Krumey and in
return received immunity passes.

Leaders Fuehrious
Over Dismissals

LONDON (JTA)—The Battle
of the "Fuehrers" of Britain's
tiny National Socialist party con-
tinued with the opposing leaders
each claiming to have dismissed
the other.
Secretary John Tyndall, who
announced that Colin Jordan had
been deposed for conduct tend-
ing to "degrade" the "image" of
the party, said: "I have deposed
fuehrer Jordan and seized all
party files. You could call it a
putsch."
Jordan fired back a statement
from the party's Notting Hill dis-
trict office leclaring: am still
the leader and this is still the
party headquarters." Tyndall's
riposte was made from a base-
ment in another part of London
in which he announced "this is
our new headquarters and I am
the leader."

Bob Kennedy OKs
Return of I. G. Farben
Property in Swiss Deal

N

WASHINGTON — Atty. Gen.
Robert Kennedy has authorized
the sale of property once owned
by I. G. Farben, the German firm
that used Auschwitz slave labor,
back, in part. to a Swiss company
which served as Farben's cloaking
company.
Every other U. S. attorney gen-
eral has refused to return any of
L G. Farben's property. Some S60
million will revert to Interhandel
through the sale of General Ani-
line and Film.
Meanwhile, a court action has
been filed by an American in
the U. S. District Court in Wash-
ington to get a slice of the prof-
its from the sale of General
Aniline.

Syrian Water Source
Discovered; Could Affect
Rift Over Jordan River

ROME — A new Syrian water
source could have major impact
on the controversy between Syria
and other Arab League nations
over Israel's planned diversion • of
Jordan water to the Negev.
The discovery was confirmed by
headquarters of the United Na-
tions Food and Agriculture Organ-
ization (FAO) here. The under-
ground water is enough to supply
a quarter million acres of wheat
or cotton lands.
FAO sources said it would in-
crease Syria's presently available
groundwater supply by sixfold and
"could potentially irrigate the
largest area in the world watered
from underground sources." The
discovery culminates a three-year
survey by FAO experts under a
$472,000 UN grant.

The petition was filed by Robert
A. Schmitz, nephew of a convicted
war criminal who built the I. G.
Farben plant alongside Auschwitz
in order to use Jewish slave labor.
He is claiming a 5 per cent com-
mission for helping arrange the
sale of General Aniline stock.

8 Neo-Nazis on Trial
Complain Court Trying to
Outlaw Anti-Semitism

NEW Y 0 R K (JTA) — Eight
members of the neo-Nazi National
Renaissance Party contended that
a Bronx court is "trying to create
a situation where the law will be
against anti-Semitism," as their
trial for alleged conspiracy and in-
citement to riot continued for the
second week.
The eight, including one Jew,
Ian Lehr, and headed by their
acknowledged "fuehrer," James H.
Madole, were arrested last July
when they allegedly tried to turn
a Bronx demonstration concerned
with Negro discriminations into
an anti-Semitic rally.
Police said their truck contained
hate literature as well as loaded
pistols, arrows and a tear-gas pen-
cil. They are on trial before New
York State- Supreme Court Justice
Irwin D. Davidson, in the Bronx.
The claim that the court is trying
to outlaw anti-Semitism, coupled
with an assertion that "this will
never be so," was made outside the
court room by one of the eight de-
fendants.

Human Rights Failures Blamed on Procedure

major on grounds that he really
might have believed that the 40
Jewish men, women and children
he ordered mowed down by ma-
chinegun fire in occupied Russia
were actually spies and saboteurs.
Chief Judge Wolfgang Bierbach
held that the ex-Nazi, Fritz Fischer,
was gulity of manslaughter but
that the 15-year statute of limita-
tions had expired before Fischer
was indicted.
He also dismissed murder
charges against former Nazi Lieu-
tenant Fritz Puls, 57, on grounds
that he excuted the orders of his
superior in "good faith" and there-
fore was innocent of complicity in
the murders.
Judge Bierbach said that the
prosecution had not proved that
Fischer had the victims executed
only because they were Jews. He
said the Nazi had been "in a
dangerous position—he may have
given the order to protect his
troops from spies and saboteurs."
The 40 victims were amrdered at
the Kalmuck village of Peregrusni.

Tens of thousands of petitions
and complaints have been gather-
ing dust for years in the archives
of the UN, simply because no pro-
cedure exists to evaluate them or
to authorize the organization to
act on them.
This revelation was made by
Dr. Maurice L. Perlzweig, director
of the international affairs depart-
ment of the World Jewish Con-
gress in New York and the organ-
ization's permanent representative
at the UN, in an address to the
annual meeting of the Hashomer
Hatzair Women's Councils in New
York.

The World Jewish Congress
urged two steps to improve the
situation: the appointment of a
High Commissioner for Human
Rights, and the ability for non-
governmental organizations to
lodge petitions with the United
Nations.

High Court's Goldberg
Stresses Importance
of Links to Heritage

BOSTON (JTA) — The import-
ance to Jews of maintaining a
sense of identification with "our
proud Jewish heritage" was em-
phasized here by Supreme Court
Justice Arthur J. Goldberg.
He stressed that point in prais-
ing Boston Jewry's contributions
to the 1964 drive of the Combined
Jewish Philanthropies here, ad-
dressing leaders of the community.
"To me, the supreme test of an
American citizen," he said, "is
this: that he is one who does not
conceal but affirms his origin, who
is proud of whatever it may be
and who recognizes that in the
plurality of American life is our
strength and the source of the
freedom that we proudly profess
in the world."
The 1964 Appeal closed with a
total of $5,037,000.
