NEW YORK (JTA)—The Amer-

handbills in front of the Jordanian
Pavilion at the World's Fair Mon-
day to protest the display of a
mural which the Jewish group has
charged defames Israel and the
Jewish people.
The handbill distribution took
place under the terms of a court
order agreed upon by the Congress
and Fair officials. The agreement
was signed following a hearing
before Judge Birdie Amsterdam
in New York State Supreme Court
on a suit brought by Dr. Joachim
Prinz, president of the Congress,
and 10 others.
The suit sought to enjoin

dents of the neighborhood, a com-
pletely Anglo-Saxon working class
section of Toronto.
At the height of the 3"-minute
episode, the Nazi trio's leader,
William John Beattie, brandished
a rifle at the crowd. "We were
scared. They were shouting: 'Kill
them, kill them'," said Beattie
after police were rushed to the
house and dispersed the crowd.
The meeting room of the head-
quarters, dominated by a large
swastika flag, was littered with
stones and boulders, including an

Benjamin Freeland, retiring
president of the board, also re-
ported that the board had acted to
meet the acute shortage of teach-
ers. He said the board depart-
mentalized the school faculties in
a number of schools. He explained
that, by assigning teachers to teach

than the two classes they would
normally teach "we have been able

stein, New York Democrat, that
appropriate officials within the
Defense Department are investi-
gating the dismissal of a Jewish
employe of the Navy by a Ger-
man national who has been charged
with religious prejudice.
The Jew, Bernard Perlstein, was
fired after 23 years of service by
his German supervisor, who arrived
in the United States in 1962. Perl-
stein charged in the U.S. Court of
Claims that the German was moti-
vated by personal bias. Rep. Farb-
stein asked Defense Department
for a full report on the matter.
Brig. Gen. C. R. Roderick wrote
to Rep. Farbstein on behalf of the
secretary of defense that a "sub-
stantive" report on the dismissal
will be sent in the near future. The
Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A.
has also lodged a formal request
for clarification with the Defense

he threatened to complain to the
police commission chairman.

Public announcement of the for-
mation of the "Canadian Nazi
Party" by the three Canadian neo-
Nazis was denounced by the Cana-
dian Jewish Congress as an effort
by "young hooligans" trying to
"shock the Canadian people."
Besides Beattie, 23, they are
John de Cock, 19, and Peter Rei-
del, 16. Another announced mem-
ber of the group, David Stanley,
20, who started dissemination of
Nazi materials in the area two
years ago, was in Vancouver where
he has been busy with Nazi activi-
ties for the past two months.

Canadian Jewish Congress in On-

ment:: "Our reaction to young
hooligans who don obscene regalia
and attempt to shock the Canadian
people is that they are indecently
exposing themselves and deserve
no more attention than that given
to a deluded exhibitionist.
As to the alleged formation of
an alleged Nazi party in Canada,
we feel, as do all Canadians, that
there is no room here or indeed
anywhere in the free world, for
a revival of Hitlerite conspiracy.
We scorn to dignify these acts
with any other comment."

but that it was being used for Nazi
drills and propaganda.
Appearing in court, Forbes de-
nied that he had been served with
the notice. The Nazi has also been
charged with violating a building

Sunday Evening May 2nd

Detroit Institute of Arts

On Sunday evening, May 2 at 8:30 p.m. at the Detroit
Institute of Arts, the 100 members of the Don Frohman
Chorus, who are presenting their 40th Annual Concert with
members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, will honor their
Director, Don Frohman, on his 35th year with the chorus.
Mr. Frohman, a nationally known Concert and Opera
baritone, gave many concerts and recitals throughout the
United States. and Canada. He sang the leading opera roles
with the Ohio and Pennsylvania Opera Companies. He was
managed by the Mid-Western Concert management of Ohio
and the Center Concert Bureau of New York. For the past 20
seasons Mr. Frohman has been singing the principal baritone
roles with the Verdi Touring Opera Company.
As a composer, Mr. Frohman has composed, arranged,
and orchestrated over 150 compositions for solo voice, chorus
and orchestra.
Some of his music for chorus and orchestra, mainly his
Oratorio "The New Song" which will highlight the program,
will be sung and played at Sunday Night's Concert.
Mr. Frohman is recognized as one of the outstanding
Choral and Orchestra directors in the country. He is musical
director of Congregation Shaarey Zedek, The Music Study

Women's Chorus, the Don Frohman Chorus all of Detroit; and
has been director of the Cleveland Civic Chorus for the past
35 years since its inception.
He has introduced to our audiences through his choruses
and orchestras the great musical compositions of the most
prominent Jewish composers, as well as the works of the great
classics. In grateful recognition of his work, the Cleveland
Civic Chorus of Ohio presented Mr. Frohman with a citation
of achievement at the 25th Annual Concert, May 18, 1955,
at Severance Hall, Cleveland, Ohio.
We take this opportunity to acknowledge our gratitude
to our Conductor Don Frohman, who has for 35 years so de-
votedly and selflessly given of himself and of his inexhaustible
knowledge of music. His musical talents, his skillful guidance,
the patience and endurance he maintained during the course
of our existence, has not been in vain. He has instilled in us
a love and appreciation of the best in music for which he
has our deep admration and our loyalty.
May he continue to inspire and enrich our lives with his
fathomless musical knowledge, and may he enjoy many more
fruitful years ahead, so that we may continue to benefit from
his dynamic and stimulating guidance.
