10 0, 000 to Benefit From New Restitution Rulin

BONN (JTA)—The Supreme Restitution
Court of the former British zone in West
Germany, together with a similar court in
the former • American zone and with the
Supreme Restitution Court in Berlin, de-

cided that Nazi victims who did not file
their claims in time with the restitution
authorities have nevertheless complied with
the legal requirements for restitution if
they filed their petitions with the compensa-
tion authorities, even without substantiating

Tributes to
Genius of

their claims.
This important decision actually abol-
ishes the distinction between filing with the
restitution authorities and the compensation
authorities for a great number of Nazi vic-
tims, especially those living outside of

Germany. The number of such claimants is
estimated by the ministry of finance to
reach 100,000. The West German federal
government will now have to take note of
the decision and will probably amend the
restitution law.

Africans Will Op- pose Anti-Israel
Moves by Nasser; Swiss Arms Sale
Hit as Exports to Egypt Continue

World's Fair Directors
Vote 59 to 24 Against
Action on Jordan's Mural

(JTA News Wires to The Jewish News)

NEW YORK—World's Fair President Robert
Moses rejected Monday a resolution by directors
of the Fair to investigate the controversial anti-
Israel mural at the Jordan pavilion and shut off
efforts by a state senator to continue debate on the
issue. He was sustained by a 59-24 vote.
In the meantime, the New York City Council
approved a resolution calling for. the mural's im-
mediate removal. The Council's General Welfare
Committee had voted for the action last week
following an hour's wrangling with an Arab
The brief discussion on the mural issue at
the Fair directors' semiannual meeting began with
an announcement by Charles Preusse, Fair coun-
sel, that the mural was the subject of two Supreme
Court actions and that there should be no discus-

JERUSALEM (JTA)--Israel has received the assurances of several African nations that they
will not allow the African summit conference, scheduled to be held in Cairo next month, to be
turned into an anti-Israel forum. This was in keeping with the stand these countries took at Addis
Ababa last year.
Several African leaders reported that they have told Nasser that they would oppose
exploitation of the forthcoming summit for his anti-Israel moves. The leaders have also reportedly
told Nasser he must -choose between his African and Arab interests. The summit may have to be
postponed because of resistance on the part of the African leaders to Nasser's plan to have the
sessions coincide with the anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution.
300 Swiss Professors Protest Arms Sale to Egypt
GENEVA (JTA)—More than 300 university professors issued a protest against the illegal
but almost open sale of arms by Swiss firms to Egypt. They emphasized that Egypt is preparing to
make war on Israel. Two leading Swiss newspapers, Journal de Geneve and La Suisse, have attached
great importance to the protest nd have backed up its charges. Signers of the protest were lecturers
of the Federal Polytechnic School, the Institute of Advanced Commercial and Administrative
Studies, and universities and colleges throughout the country.
The purpose of the protest, said its signatories, was both to arouse public opiinion on the
issue, and to draw the attention of the Swiss authorities to the illegal export of arms to Egypt in
the light of the "very grave problem" of Nasser's threats against Israel.
The "Journal de Geneve" in commenting on the protest, pointed out that, in spite of the fact
that the Federal Council prohibited the export of arms to Near Eastern countries nine years ago,
"there are ways of getting around the law." The newspaper cited a firm directed by former SS
man Ferdinand Wertner which exports machine tools for military use to Egypt. "Even worse is the
almost open export of arms by leading Swiss manufacturers made public during the last trial of two
Jews accused of spying for Israel," the paper stressed.

Ilebreil, High School for 1,000
Students to Be Built in Israel
With Stollmans' Generous Gift

Deities Exhibit:

Departing from the futurama world depict-
at the World's Fair, the New York Jewish Museum operated under auspices of the Jew-
ish Theological Seminary offers an unparalleled glimpse into the far past. Its major arche-
ological exhibition, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me," features representations
of ancient Near Eastern gods and artifacts, the oldest deities in the exhibit dating to the
6th century BCE. Shown here (from the left) are: A Mesopotamian god with horned cap and
animal ears, c. 3000 BCE, on loan from the Brooklyn Museum; Anubis, the Egyptian jackal-
headed guardian of the dead, c. 663-332 BCE on loan from the Walters Art Gallery, Balti-
more; a Cycladic female head c. 3000 BCE on loan from Mr. and Mrs. Norbert Schimmel,
New York. Among the 200 pieces exhibited, there is, of co u r s e , no representation
the God of the Hebrew tribes. As Ann Farkas of Columbia University's Department of
Art and Archeology writes in the catalog to the exhibition: "Hebrew society bore the im-
print of its neighbors--it could scarcely avoid sharing the
common heritage of its time—but
the God that is not represented, the God
which is a moral principle, is not part of this
ancient heritage." The exhibition, which will remain open until Sept. 20, emphasizes the
Hebrew concept of the ineffable by the very absence of such representations.

A high school that will provide • secondary education for
1,000 youths in Israel will be established at Bar-Ilan University,
facilities to be ready for the 1965-66 'scholastic year. Announce-
ment was made this week, simulta-
neously, in Ramat Gan, Israel, by
Bar-Ilan authorities, and the national
officers of Bar-Ilan in New York.
Construction of the vast system
is being made possible by a generous
gift from the Stollman Family in
Max Stollman announced the
gift here in behalf of himself and
his brother, Phillip Stollman.
It is estimated that the initial
cost of the high school, its school
buildings and laboratories, will be
in excess of $750,000. Government
subsidies will supplement the Stoll-
mans' gift.

high school buildings is on Page 32)

Max Stollinan

Max and Phillip Stollman stated, affirming their initiation
of the project, that they have felt for a number of years that
the lack of facilities for secondary education in Israel has
created a major need in Israel. As pioneers in the establish-
ment of Bar-Ilan University, they said it was their deep convic-
tion that the filling of this void is a major responsibility and
that they hope the Bar-Ilan project will help solve the serious
