Prolonged Court Fight Seen
on Anti Jewish Fair Slogans

Special to The Jewish News
NEW YORK—A prolonged court fight

to force
cancellation of the World's Fair lease to the
Jordanian Pavilion unless Jordan removes its anti-
Semitic mural from the walls of its exhibit was
foreseen here Wednesday.
Legal action was instituted by Dore Schary,
chairman of the Anti-Defamation League of Bnai
Brith, against Robert Moses, president of the
World's Fair Corporation, and Newbold Morris,
New York City commissioner of parks.
An order directing Morris and Moses to show
cause why the mural should not be removed or
the Jordan Pavilion lease canceled was signed
May 21 by Justice Joseph A. Sarafite of the State
Supreme Court.
Meanwhile leaders of the American Jewish
Congress fulfilled their warning that they would
picket the Jordanian Pavilion. Dr. Joachim Prinz,
AJCongress president, and 11 of his associates,
were arrested Monday morning when they refused
to abandon their picketing at the Fair.
Tension was added to the dispute with the con-
firmation in Jerusalem of the report that Premier
.Eshkol will not visit the World's Fair during his

-

visit in New York next week. The change in his
originally planned itinerary which would have in-
cluded a visit to the Fair, appeared to be due to the
refusal of Fair officials to take action against the
Jordanian anti-Jewish and anti-Israel display.
Rabbi Prinz and the 11 other persons, including
his wife and other national officers of the AJC,
were arrested after the picketing demonstration.
They were arraigned before Judge Bernard
Dubin, of the Criminal Court of Queens County,
and paroled without bail in their own recognizance,
pending the filing of motions by their special
counsel, Howard M. Squadron. He told Judge
Dubin he will challenge the constitutionality of
the Fair's ban against picketing. The case was
adjourned to June 16.
Dr. Prinz had previously requested a permit to
picket the Jordanian pavilion, and was denied such
authorization by Robert Moses.
Monday morning, Dr. Prinz and the 11 others
appeared at the Fair entrance with picket signs.
Policemen told them they would not be admitted
with the banners. They then left the signs and
entered the Fair grounds. Proceeding to the front
of the Jordanian pavilion, they started marching

to and fro. One of their number, C. Irving Dwork,
national secretary of the American Jewish Con-
gress, lifted a picketing sign reading: "The Ameri-
can Jewish Congress Urges Peace Through Under-
standing—Jordan Incites War Through Bigotry."
The Fair's official slogan is "Peace Through
Understanding."
When a Fair security officer ordered Dwork
to lower the banner, and the latter refused to do
so, all members of the group were arrested. All
but Dwork were charged with disorderly conduct.
He was charged additionally with "resisting ar-
rest."
Those arrested, in addition to Rabbi and Mrs.
Prinz and Dwork, included: Theodore Bikel, pro-
minent singer and actor; .Theodore Kolish, a na-
tional vice president of the AJC; Mrs. Howard
Levine; Harry Schacter, another AJC national
vice president; James H. Scheuer, chairman of the
AJC executive committee; Mrs. Benjamin Spiegel;
Mrs. Martin Steinberg; and two other national vice
presidents, Robert Wechsler and Theodore Mann.
Rabbi Prinz and all the others were held in the
Fair's police detention room for an hour, then

White House and State Department Make Elaborate
Preparations to Welcome Israel's Prime Minister

2

\-

WASHINGTON (.JTA)—The White House and State Department made elaborate
arrangements for hospitality to Israel's Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and Mrs. Eshkol
when they arrive here next Monday.

JERUSALEM (JTA)—Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, preparing to leave for the
United States for an official visit with President Johnson to begin next Monday,
reported on the details of his American stay to the Cabinet.

State Department sources said that protocol considerations prompted Secretary
of State Dean Rusk to receive Tuesday afternoon the ambassadors from 13 Arab
states who protested the forthcoming visit of Eshkol to this country as a guest of
President Johnson. Secretary Rusk told the Arab envoys that the United States was
aware of Arab views and would follow its policy in the Middle East from the viewpoint
of national interest and its desire to see peace preserved in the area.
The Arab diplomats jointly warned the State Department that the real objective
of the Eshkol visit was to exploit an election atmosphere here "to destroy Arab-
American relations to gain liberty of aggression in the Middle East." The appointment
for the Arab group was requested by Ambassador Mostafa Kamel of the United Arab
Republic and granted by Secretary Rusk.
(Over the objections of the U. S. Treasury, Britain and our Western European
allies, the State Department this week ordered a $40,000,000 International Mbnetary
Fund loan to the United Arab Republic).

In addition to meeting with the President, Eshkol also will confer in Washington
with Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Secretary of Defense Robert MacNamara.
He will also meet other prominent Americans, including leaders of the Republican
Party, among them Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York. Walworth H.
Barbour, United States ambassador to Israel, left for Washington to help prepare
official American administration arrangements for the Eshkol visit,

The government announced that, during Eshkol's absence, Deputy Premier
Abba Eban will be acting prime minister. Since Eshkol is also minister of defense,
that post will be assumed temporarily during his absence by Pinhas Sapir, minister
of finance and minister of commerce and industry.
Prime Minister Eshkol is due to meet President. DeGaulle in Paris about a week
after returning from his forthcoming United States visit. The prime minister's office
here confirmed that a meeting between the two leaders has been scheduled for
early July.

United Auto Workers Purchases $250,000 in Israel Bonds,
Record for Detroit, in Tribute to U.S. Senator Philip A. Hart

N

/-

A record Detroit purchase of a quarter-million dol-
lars in Israel Bonds was announced by the UAW Inter-
*national at a tribute dinner for Sen. Philip A. Hart Sun-
day.
The $250,000 check, presented by UAW Secretary-
Treasurer Emil Mazey, set the pace for further giving.
A total of $370,000 was subscribed by trade unions and
individuals at the Cobo Hall banquet attended by 500.
Sen. Hart and the State of Israel, on its 16th anni-
versary, shared the spotlight, with both being praised by
union leaders for their contributions to society.
Shimon Moratt, labor counselor of the Israel Em-
bassy, presented Sen. Hart with a plaque from the State
of Israel. He called the senator "a great citizen of the
world," "one of a group whose friendship for Israel, whose
concern for her present and future" has been "explicit"
and "to whom international solidarity means a good deal."
(In an address on the floor of the 'United States Senate
on May 19, Sen. Hart called attention to the menacing
situation created in the Middle East by the aid given to
Nasser by German scientists. He called upon the services
thus given to Israel's enemies by means of legislative
action. Detailed story on Page 2).
Citing the growth problems of Israel, economics, edu-
cation and security, Moratt said the labor movement here
has taken a great role in Israel's upbuilding. "You were

at the cradle of the state of Israel," he said to the union-
ists, "and it's good to know we have stanch friends at
our side."
Sen. Hart, in accepting the award, said Israel "has
demonstrated more than any other nation that power is
not so important as an idea, that respect for the idea is
essential for survival of a decent society."
Mazey, who was in Israel recently, meeting with
leaders in the labor-socialist government, said that his
union's $250,000 subscription will be added to the $327,000
purchased in previous years.
"Why does my union support Israel? Because we
recognize the persecution, discrimination and oppression
to the Jewish people, and because we are opposed to such
injustice," he said. "We're for Israel because we recognize
that its social planning is important for countries like our
own and shows the possibilities of a real democracy."
Pointing out that while his union is "one-tenth of
one per cent Jewish, we can be for the state of Israel
without being Jewish."
Special awards to trade unions that have purchased
Bonds were announced by Barney Hopkins, secretary-
treasurer, Michigan State AFL-CIO.
Recipients, who will be inscribed in the State of
Israel Bonds scroll of honor, were Ford Local 600, Retail
Store Employes Union Local 876, Amalgamated Meat Cut-

ters and Butchers Workmen, United Bakery and Confec-
tionary Workers Local 30, International Brotherhood of
Teamsters Local 337 and Hotel and Restaurant Employes
Union.
Mrs. Myra Wolfgang, accepting the award for the hotel
employes, said unions should be assured that "buying
Israel Bonds is no gift, it's an investment.
"On June 6," she added, "you will have the oppor-
tunity to give, not make, money for the state of Israel
scholarship in Sen. i%IcNamara's name." (The dinner,
a tribute to Sen. Patrick V. McNamara at the Masonic
Temple, is sponsored by the American Trade Union
Council for Histradrut.)
Others who bought Bonds in Sen. Hart's honor in-
cluded Congressman John Dingell and the Rt. Rev. Msgr.
Clement H. Kern of Most Holy Trinity Church, who de-
livered the invocation at the dinner.
Tributes to Sen. Hart were made by the Rev. James
E. Wadsworth Jr., of St. Mark's Community Church and
by Dr. Morris Adler of Cong. Shaarey Zedek. Dr. Adler is
chairman of the UAW Public Review Board.
Dinner chairman was August Scholle, president of the
Michigan State AFL-CIO. Greetings were extended by
Irving Kane, Detroit Development Committee coordinator,
representing Mayor Cavanagh; and by Sidney Shevit7
president of the Jewish Community Council,
