FBI Conducts Investigation of Series of
Bombings of Jewish Homes in Kansas City

Federal Bureau of Investigation
has received information on anti-
Jewish bombings in Kansas City,
Mo., and is believed to be parti-
cipating in an investigation launch-
ed by Kansas City police.
Kansas City police officials and
announced that a pattern of anti-
Jewish terrorism has emerged in
Kansas City during the past seven
months. Five bombings or attempt-
ed bombings have occurred at the
homes and businesses of Jewish
persons, police said. The bombings
were described as a "pattern" in-
volving anti-Semitism.
Police are now probing the lat-
est blast which last week destroy-
ed the interior of a restaurant
owned by Melvin Rolsky.
Rolsky is Jewish, and his name
has figured in the news.
The first of the five incidents
in the anti-Jewish pattern occurred
Jan. 26, when two unexploded
dynamite bombs were found out-

Steamed Up Over
Anti-Smoke Law

JERUSALEM — Where there's
smoke, there's fire. The principle
finds no exception in Israel, where
regulations against excessive ve-
hicle exhaust have been extended
throughout the country after a
year's trial in the three main

threatened they will be unable
to conform with the controver-
sial rules, called the Banowitz
regulations after the late Dr.
Simon Kanowitz who piloted the
bill through Parliament in 1961.
The National Council for the
Prevention of Air Pollution and
Noise complained that the law has
become a "mockery," with rules
not being enforced and gaping
loopholes available for drivers to
circumvent them. Taxi drivers said
they would strike unless the law
is suspended or some concrete
proposals made to help them elim-
inate smoke from the exhausts of
their vehicles.
Los Angeles often has been con-
sidered the smog city, but the
problem of air pollution has be-
come an increasing health hazard

side the homes of Irving Achten-
berg, an attorney, and Dr. Lazare
Shapiro, a physician. The names
of both intended victims had ap-
peared in newspaper publicity prior
to the attempt.
Two days later, an explosive
charge was detonated against the
wall of a discount store operated
by proprietors of Jewish faith. The
explosion resulted in damage esti-
mated at $40,000. On April 21, the
same store was damaged by still
another blast. Police concluded
that the only conceivable thread
linking the bomibngs and attempt-
ed bombings of Jews was anti-
Semitism on the part of perpetra-

tives of Kansas City Police De-
partment, Tuesday denied a
Washington report that a pattern
of anti-Jewish terrorism has
emerged in Kansas City during the
past months, when five bombings

"We have no basic facts which
connect these various bombings
and attempted bombings one with
another," he said. "There is no ap-
parent pattern and any attempt
to link them together is not based
on the facts as we know them.
There is no proven anti-Semitic as-

recent similar bombings have been

A Sons Confusions
A Jew complained about his
son-in-law: "He is no good, he
doesn't know how to play cards,
he doesn't know how to drink."
"That's fine," said his listener.
"What are you complaining
of? I wish my son-in-law didn't
know how to gamble and
"But," said the first Jew, "the
trouble is that while my son-
in-law doesn't know how to play
cards, he plays cards, and al-
though he doesn't know how to
drink, he drinks."
