Canada TV Network Refuses to Cancel Its Filmed Nazi Interview

MONTREAL (JTA) — The
Canadian Broadcasting Corpor-
ation refused to cancel the show-
ing of a television film of an in-
terview with Leni Riefenstahl, a
close friend of Adolph Hitler and
Josef Goebbels, who, as a movie
producer, was considered an out-
standing Nazi propagandist. •
The Canadian Jewish Congress
had protested the program, sched-
uled for broadcast this month.
Michael Garber, president of the
CJC, wrote the request for cancel-
ation to Alphonse Ouimet, presi-
dent of the CBC, declaring that
the commitment to show the Rief-

M.P. Asks Government
Move on British Bigots

Freeson, a member of Parliament
representing the Labor Party, for-
mally asked the government in the
House of Commons to report what
steps are being taken against
• rightist organizations he accused
of being linked to recent anti-
Semitic manifestations in this
country.
He listed a series of acts such
as the daubing of synagogues with
the swastika, desecration. of Jewish
cemeteries and the distribution of
fascist and' racist propaganda in
London and in other parts of Bri-
Wn.
He named specifically the Bri-
tish Nazi Party, the British Na-
tional Movement and the Nazi In-
ternational, telling Parliament
that police authorities have the
names of members of these groups
who have participated in anti-Se-
mitic actions.
At the same time, Sir Frank So-
skice, the home secretary, was
asked in Parliament Monday
whether he is taking any action
against a new book shop opened in
• London by John Tyndall, former
aide to Colin Jordan, leader of the
British Nazi Part y. The shop
specializes in anti-Semitic litera-
ture. Sir Frank replied that the
anti-racism bill now pending in

Suspended Teacher Begs
Jewish Forgiveness for
Glorification of Hitler

MONTREAL (JTA) — Brother
Rene Lahaie, suspended seventh-
grade teacher in a Catholic ele-
mentary school here, who had
been formally "removed" from
his post for displaying a photo-
graph of Hitler and a swastika in
his classroom, "explained" the
incident to the Canadian Jewish
community, and asked to be "for-
given for having tolerated the in-
considerate use of symbols and
dramatizations which are so
charged with painful memories."
The teacher's letter, saying that
he and his superiors had been the
"victims of one-sided and subjec-
tive and prejudiced information,"
had been sent to the Canadian
Jewish Congress. Joining the
teacher in the letter were his
former principal, who has been
suspended indefinitely, and the
director of the school commission
in charge of his school, who has
been assigned to other duties.
The CJC replied to the signers
of the letter that it is acquainting
the Jewish community leadership
with "the friendly spirit" of their
letter. Congress alSo- asserted it is
confident that an independent
board set up by the Montreal
Catholic School Commission to
prove the incident "will take such
action as it deems required under
the circumstances."

Anti-Semite Agitator Eyes
Quebec Political Return

QUEBEC (JTA) — Jewish
spokesmen said that Adrian Ar-
cand, one of the most notorious
anti-Semitic agitators in Quebec
in the mid-30's, apparently was
starting a comeback here after
years of silence.
About 150 persons attended a
rally of the "National Unity of
Canada Party" at which Arcand
delivered a harangue composed of
most of the canards spread
throughout Canada before World
War II by Nazi agents.
Arcand distributed vast quanti-
ties of anti-Semitic material, or-
ganized many parades and made
many inflammatory speeches from
1935 until a few weeks before the
start of World War II in 1939,
when he was prosecuted under
the Canadian War Measures Act
and interned.
Following his interment, he sued
the Canadian government for
$250,000 damages for alleged false
arrest.
He charged in his suit that the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police
and the Canadian Jewish Con-
gress "conspired" to have him in-
terned. The suit never came to
trial.

D.C. Judges Amend Rule
to Boost Bond for Nazis

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The
board of judges of the District of
Columbia Court of General Ses-
sions has amended the list of
bonds and collaterals to make pos-
sible the imposition of higher
bonds and increased collateral in
instances of arrest of members of
the American Nazi Party.'
This was made known in a let-
ter from President Walter N. To-
briner of the board of commis-
sioners of the District of Columbia
to Rep. Charles S. Joelson, New
Jersey Democrat, Rep. Joelson had
complained that Nazis were get-
ting off in the district for mere
forfeiture of $10 collateral despite
extreme abuses against law and
order.
Tobriner wrote Rep. Joelson that
he considered the amended rule to
be an improvement. "But," he
added, "I do hope that if repeating
offenders elect to forfeit the
higher collateral they will, never-
theless, be ordered arrested and
tried."
