trial in Cairo, it was reported here
Tuesday from the Egyptian capital.
The two defendants were Mrs.
Wolfgang Lotz, 38, and Franz Kie-
sow, 48. The woman is the wife of
a third West German defendant
who said last week that he had
spied for Israel. He denied, how-
ever, that he tried to assassinate

working in Cairo by use of letters
containing explosives. Mrs. Lotz
was charged with complicity in
her husband's activities.

Austria to Consider Recall
of Arms Experts in Egypt

VIENNA (JTA) — The govern-
ment of Austria will review the
status of Austrian scientists work-
ing in arms industries in Egypt
following a protest by the Jewish
community submitted to Foreign
Minister Bruno Kreisky.
The Austrian Government was
asked by the Jewish community to
recall the scientists, because they
are working on weapons intended
for use against Israel. Kreisky
agreed to put the case before the
cabinet when it meets in Septem-
ber, according to a foreign ministry

Shrinks Hemorrhoids
Without Surgery

Stops itch—Relieves Pahi

For the first time science has found
a new healing substance with the as-
tonishing ability to shrink hemor-
rhoids and to relieve pain — without
surgery. In case after case, while

gently relieving pain, actual reduc-
tion (shrinkage) took place. Most

amazing of all — results were so thor-
ough that sufferers made astonishing
statements like "Piles have ceased to
be a problem!" The secret is a new

able in suppository or ointment form

to their firms, and he pleaded
not guilty to charges he had sent
the Dusseldorf firm defense sec-
rets. He also pleaded not guilty
to a charge he had gathered in-
formation in Egypt illegally.
Mrs. Lotz testified she had been
a lookout for her husband while he
sent information via secret radio
in the Lotz home in Cairo. She add-
ed she thought he had been an
undercover agent for the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization. She
said she had not known about the
charge that he had spied for Israel.
She also stated that he had sent
four or five letters to West Ger-
man technicians working on ad-
vanced weapons for the Nasser re-
Ome, but she said she thought
they were only "threatening let-
ters." She denied reports that Lotz
was an Israeli army officer, testi-
fying that when they were married
he had shown her documents show-
ing he was a German citizen who
had served in the Germany army
in World War II.
She concluded her testimony
with a plea for mercy.
Kiesow said he had met the
Lotzes at a club and that he had
discussed business with Lotz as he
did with "hundreds of people" in
Egypt. He added that Lotz had
never asked him for information
and that he knew nothing of the
charge that the Lotzes had ties
with Israeli intelligence.
The prosecution also charged
that Mrs. Hans Walter, wife of a
German archaeologist employed by
a Yale University expedition in
Egypt last year, was a spy for
The U.S embassy confirmed that
Walter worked for the Yale expe-
dition, but said he was a German
citizen — not an American. Mrs.
Walter, implicated in a statement
by Lotz, was believed to be Dutch
or German.

JERUSALEM — The renewal by
some of the Arab states of their
work on water diversion projects
intended to withdraw water from
Jordan River tributaries was be-
lieved to have been one of the ma-
jor topics of conversation at an
hour-long conference held here
Tuesday between Prime Minister
Levi Eshkol and United States Am-
bassador Walworth Barbour.
While officials declined to reveal
details of the conversation, calling
the conference "routine," Eshkol
was believed to have told Barbour
that Israel could not be expected
to sit by idly until the Arabs' water
diversion projects are accomplish-
Washington has been inclined
until now to accept the explan-
ation given by Lebanon, where
work on such a water diversion
project has been resumed.
According to the Beirut version,
its project is intended only as a
"demonstration" to show other
Arab states that it is willing to
follow the Arab policy of injuring
Israel's National Water Carrier
by reducing the inflow of water in-
to the Jordan River. Israel draws
water from the river to help irri-
gate the northern reaches of the
Negev desert. Actually, Lebanon
has maintained it is working on
water diversion only as part of
an internal irrigation project.
Now, however, the United States
is believed to have understood Is-
rael's apprehensions on the subject
and Israel's claim that Lebanon
is actually engaged in a project
for implementation of the general
Arab scheme regarding water di-
version. The United States is re-
portedly still cautioning Israel
against rash moves.

British Prime Minister
`Won't Desert Friends
in the Middle East'

LONDON (JTA) — The British
government has no intention of
"deserting our traditional friends
in the Middle East or of altering
our relations to the Arab-Israel
dispute," Prime Minister Harold
Wilson told the House of Commons
Participating in Parliament's for-
eign affairs debate, the prime min-
ister touched on the Middle East.
He said that, as part of the govern-
ment's efforts to improve relations
in that region, he had "envisaged,
at the earliest possible moment, a
visit by a senior foreign office min-
ister to Cairo" to try to improve
relations with Egypt.
"This is still our intention," he
asserted. But, he declared, such
a visit is not possible now, while
the Egyptian regime is still en-
gaged "in a series of subversive,
terriost actions which make it
impossible for us to acquit Egypt
and her friends of connivance,
even involvement."
The Labor government's leader
in the House of Commons said
Monday: "I declare on behalf of
Her Majesty's government that we
intend to maintain our friendly
ties with Israel." The speaker, Her-
bert Bowden, addressed a luncheon
in the House of Commons given
under the auspices of the Labor
Friends of Israel and the Poale
Zion in honor of Israel's new am-
bassador here, Aharon Remez.
Bowden voiced special greetings
to the Labor Friends of Israel from
Prime Minister Wilson. He said
that, while the government is try-
ing to improve relations with the
Arab states, it is not prepared to
do so at the expense of Israel.
He paid warm tribute to "the re-
markable achievements" of the
Jewish state and its labor move-
ment, and spoke about the "friend-
ly ties uniting the British Labor
Party and Mapai."

TEL AVIV — Israel's tiny but
strife-torn Communist Party split
wide open Tuesday, and its two fac-
tions proceeded with plans for
separate national conventions.
A formal split was averted five
weeks ago when a Soviet delega-
tion to the party's scheduled con-
vention at that time intervened.
The differences reached a climax
last week when the party's central
committee failed to approve a poli-
tical report by Party Secretary
Shmuel Mikunis. The party's news-i
paper Kol Haam, published Tues-
day an announcement by the cen-
tral committee that efforts to pre-
serve party unity had failed.
Kol Haam also published two
separate invitations to the con-
ventions by the two factions this
week. The majority faction
headed by Mikunis and Moshe
Sneh, and which is made up larg-
ely of Jews, held its convention
Wednesday evening in Tel Aviv.
The minority group, headed by
Meir Winer and Tufik Tuvi,
which consists mainly of Arabs,
will hold its convention in the
same hall in Tel Aviv tonight.
The differences concern Arab-
Israel relations, the Soviet-Chin-
ese dispute and attitudes toward
Premier Levi Eshkol's govern-
ment. Although both factions op-
pose the government and its poli-
cies, the majority is more moder-
ate and the minority more ex-
It was reported that the Com-
munist Party in the Soviet Union
would probably recognize the ma-
jority faction because it includes

stein, whose annual reports are
considered binding by the inter-
national Communist movement. A
