Community Mourns the Death
of Irving Schlussel at Age 58

The Jewish community was both
shocked and grieved to learn Sun-
day afternoon of the untimely
passing of its beloved friend and
leader, Irving W. SchlusseI.
Mr. Schlussel, who with the aid
and encouragement of his wife,
Marilyn, had labored for over
four decades for every cause that
helped the distressed person and

munity Council, was a member
of the national board of Mizrachi
Organization of America, trustee
of American Committee for Bar-
Ilan University, where a room
was dedicated in his name in
1960, was active in Cong. Beth
Abraham, Young Israel and many
other religious movements. He
also served as legal advisor to
the Jewish National Fund, and
actively participated in the Allied
Jewish Campaigns.
Among the many honors ac-
corded him were the naming of
a Forest in Israel in his name, by
Mizrachi through the JUF, and a
testimonial dinner by the Israel
Bond Organization, with which he
had been associated since 1951.
He was one of the founders of the
High Holy Day appeal.
Services were held Monday at
the Hebrew Benevolent Society
with Rabbi I. Halpern and Cantor
S. Ackerman officiating.

German 'Spies'
Seized in Egypt

7

LONDON (JTA) — Egyptian
authorities have announced the ar-
rest of a group of West German
nationals charged with being agents
of Israel, it was reported here from
Cairo.
According to the semi-official
Cairo newspaper, Al Ahram, the
activities of the nationals were di-
rected against West German
scientists working on jet planes
and rocket projects for the Egyp-
tian government. The officials con-
firmed only four arrests but the
West Germany embassy in Cairo
said at least seven West Germans
had been arrested.
Al Ahram asserted that Wolf-
gang Lotz, one of those arrested,
had "confessed" that he and others
were "spying against Egypt for
Israel." Al Ahram said that Lotz
confessed he was the person re-
sponsible for mailing a parcel to
Wolfgang Pilz, one of the West
German scientists, which exploded
and blinded one of Dr. Pilz' sec-
retaries.
Lotz said on Cairo television
later that he had been duped by
Israeli intelligence agents into
sending booby-trapped letters to
German scientists. He said he
did not know the letters contain-
ed explosives until he heard that
one had exploded.
"I now fully realize," he said,
"Israelis were u s i n g Germans
against Germans . . . and they
paid us from German money they
received from Germany as com-
pensation and war reparations."
An Egyptian intelligence spokes-
man said that Lotz and his wife
Waldrud, who also was arrested,
staged wild pr. - ties to obtain mili-
tary, political and economic infor-
mation for Israel.
