Social Democrats
Vow Support of
Reparations Law

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

NEW YORK — Leaders of the
Social Democratic Party in West
Germany, one of the strongest
political parties in the country,
pledged themselves to give maxi-
mum support in parliament to
legislation which aims to provide
for the payment of reparations to
Jewish victims of Nazism who
could not leave Communist coun-
tries before October 1953 and thus
were prevented from presenting
their claims to the Bonn govern-
ment in given time.
The pledge was given by top
leaders of the Social Democratic
Party to Adolf Held, chairman of
the Jewish Labor Committee, who
returned this week from a visit
to West Germany at the invitation
of Willy Brandt, mayor of West
Reporting Wednesday on his
talks with the Socialist leaders in
Berlin and in Bonn, Held said
the West German government
proposes to pay a global sum of
$200,000,000 to Jews of that
category, but the Jewish victims
should have the same rights to
claim and receive reparations as
other Nazi victims have.
He said that German victims of
Nazis who left Communist coun-
tries after October 1953 do have
such rights.
Dr. Martin Hirsch, one of the
German Socialist leaders who is
the chairman of the parliamentary
committee which deals with the
proposed legislation, met with
Held and assured him that the
Social Democrat members in the
West German Parliament will fight
to secure a settlement for Jews not
on the' basis of a global payment
but on the same conditions as all
other Nazi victims receive their
Following their meeting, Dr.
Hirsch issued a press statement
declaring: "I and the Social Demo-
cratic Party will fight in the Bun-
destag that the claims of Jewish
victims of Nazism who left Com-
munist countries after October
1953 should be settled in a posi-
tive way.
Dr. Hirsch also assured Held that
he will insert in the proposed
legislation a provision that in case
a Jewish victim of Nazism dies, his
widow should continue to receive
the payments to which he was en-

Israel-Syrian Clashes
Raise Parliament Issue

LONDON (JTA)—British repre-
sentatives at the United Nations
are "in touch with United Nations
authorities" in New York about
the recent Israel-Syrian border
clashes, a government spokesman
told the House of Commons.
Robert Mathew, Minister of
State, also said that the UN Truce
Supervision Organization was in-
vestigating the incidents and
would submit a report to "the
authorities concerned." He spoke
in reply to a question by Conserva-
tive MP Eric Johnson as to what
British representatives in the UN
Security Council were doing about
"the unprovoked attacks by Syr-
ian forces against Israeli police and
civilians inside Israel territory on
July 2 and July 9."
Mathew said that while both
countries had submitted letters
to the Security Council neither
had asked a Council meeting on
the complaints. He said the two
Governments had given "conflict-
ing accounts." Israel had com-
plained formally to the Security
Council, charging Syria carried out
29 shooting attacks in a fou•-week
period ending July 6. The Mixed
Armistice Commission issued a re-
port that "both sides" had fired.
Israel rejected the report on
grounds it did not indicate which
had shot first.

More than 100 members of Zaad
Rishon, an organization devoted to
integrating the black Jews of the
New York area into the main-
stream of Jewish life, attended an
all-day outing sponsored by the or-

Jewish congregations in the New
York area.
The organization engages in a
varied program of cultural and spir-
itual activities aimed at creating

to bringing black Jews closer to
world Jewish problems and Zion-
ism, Zaad Rishon is active in civil

U.S. Asked to Cancel
Visa of Propagandist

immigration authorities were
asked by the Jewish War Veterans
of the U.S.A. to cancel the visa of
an Arab propagandist, Dr. Mo-
hammed T. Mehdi, and to deport
him for illegal intervention in the
American election campaign.
JWV national commander Daniel
Neal Heller said that Dr. Mehdi, in
this country only on a temporary
visa, and a citizen of Iraq, threaten-
ed to organize extremist demon-
strations against Sen. Kenneth B.
Keating, New York Republican.
This arose from the senator's pro-
Israel stand.
Dr. Mehdi, secretary - general
of the so-called "Action Com-
mittee on American-Arab
Relations,' has also spoken insul-
tingly about President Lyndon
B. Johnson's friendship toward
"This nation is suffering enough
racist strife without a foreigner in-
truding into our domestic scene
to agitate in our internal national
election by fomenting religious pre-
judice," the JWV leader said.
(Dr. Mehdi had condemned Sen.
Keating for appealing to the "Zion-
ist Jews" in an alleged opportu-
nistic quest for votes.) He an-
nounced that the JWV would seek
information on "the detailed oper-
ations of Dr. Mehdi and his agita-
tion in the election campaign."

`Poor Negro Youths Need
Male Teachers as Model'

ANN ARBOR — Lack of an
adequate male model both at home
and at school drives many lower-
class Negroes into gang life, ac-
cording to Gertrude Noar, director
of the Anti - Defamation League.
With schools being more rapidly
integrated as a result of the passage
of the civil rights bill, teachers will
need more understanding of the
pattern of life of the very poor
American Negro, Miss Noar said
in an address at the University of
It is extremely important that
there should be Negro male teach-
