Italian, Jews Told to Seek Support
---for Schools Before Subsidies Run Out

ROME (JTA) — Jewish commu-
nities throughout Italy were call-
ed upon here to intensify their
efforts to seek means of support
for Jewish education by the time
the education subsidies furnished
by the Conference on Jewish Ma-
terial Claims Against Germany are
terminated next year.

Arad-Sodom 'Miracle
Road Open in Israel

A spectacular new highway from
the new town of Arad to Sodom on
the shores of the Dead Sea in Is-
rael, constructed by the Jewish
National Fund as part of its pro-
gram of building a network of
roads along Israel's borders, has
just been completed.
It was opened by top officials of
the Israel Government, the Jewish
National Fund. and the General
Federation of Labor. In the words

Levi, vice president of the Union,
said that it was 20 years since the
end of the war in Italy and "the
majority of the communities
should be ready to pay for their
schools."
In a report to the conference,
Dr. Augusto Segre, head of the
education department of the Un-
ion, said that the number of pupils
in Italian Jewish schools had in-
creased by 15 per cent in the past
three years to a total of 2,856. He
said, however, that the Italian
Jewish community was still not
aware of the importance of instill-
ing Jewish values in the new gen-
eration.
Rabbi Elio Toaff, chief rabbi of
Rome, proposed that the scope of
the Rabbinical Colege here be en-
larged to serve as a Higher In-
stitute of Jewish Studies to in-
struct not only future rabbis but
all Jews wishing to engage in
Jewish studies. Rabbi Toaff also
urged that future rabbis round out
their training by spending a year
in Israel.
The conference delegates, which
included rabbis, educators and
communal representatives, adopt-
ed a number of resolutions aimed
at improving the conditions of the
Jewish schools and teachers and
raising standards.

Noting that Britain was keeping
in close touch with its allies on
questions pertaining to stability
in the Middle East, the foreign
secretary said, however, that he
regarded the United Nations as
being primarily responsible for
the maintenance of peace in the
region and if there was any threat
to peace in the area, the govern-
ment would consult the United Na-
tions and take whatever action
they thought was needed.

of Yigal Anon. Minister of Labor,
the road was "a miracle highway,
a road of roads, and one of the
greatest engineering operations in
road-building that Israel has ever
known."
In addition to opening travel from
Arad to the Dead Sea and easing
transport of minerals from Sodom
to the Mediterranean, the highway
is an integral part of the traffic
artery, which will ultimately join
Metulla and Eilat via the Arava,
and thus connect the Red Sea with
the Mediterranean from port to
port. Ambassador Tsur, World
Chairman of the board of directors
of the Jewish National Fund,
stressed the future importance of
this new road, which, he said,
"brings the Arad region into the
scope of Israeli civilization."

Rabbi Max Schenk, president of

condemned "the practice of con-
ducting High Holy Day services
in resort areas in facilities essen-
tially devoted to entertainment
and recreation."
He appealed to "the Jewish com-
munity to attend High Holy Day
services in the regularly consti-
tuted synagogues and temples in
the areas of their residence" and
that the rabbinate "considers at-
tendance at a makeshift synagogue
in a resort hotel setting as not
meeting our Jewish religious obli-
gations."

`Pope Didn't Denounce
Atrocities for Fear of
Displeasing an Ally'

WASHINGTON—Pope Pius XII
felt he could not specifically de-
nounce Nazi atrocities without also
naming those of the Communists
and thus displeasing the Allies in
World War II, it was learned in a
release of diplomatic documents
by the U.S. State Department.
The New York Times reported
that Pope Pius XII comments to
the United States in 1943 were
made in a talk with Harold H.
Tittmann, then assistant to the
President Franklin D. Roosevelt's
personal representative to the
Vatican.
According to Tittmann, "The
Pope stated that he 'feared' there
was foundation for the atrocity
reports of the Allies but led me
to believe that he felt that there
had been some exaggeration for
purpose of propaganda."
Other diplomatic documents al-
ready had been disclosed that the
United States, through President
Roosevelt's personal Vatican rep-
resentatives, joined other govern-
ments in urging the Pope to speak
out against the "incredible hor-
rors" committed by the Nazis
against Poles and others as well
as Jews.

Conservative MP Eric Johnson
said that the Egyptian govern-
ment should be made aware that
aggression would have more seri-
ous repercussions than a resolu-
tion before the Security Council
which could be vetoed.
Labor member Sidney Silver-
man charged in the Commons de-
bate that Egypt was being re-
armed by the Soviet Union and
was preparing for war against Is-
rael while other Arab states were
also being rearmed by Britain.
