Bishops' Attitude on
Declaration by Vatican
NEW YORK (JTA)—Only five Catholic bishops
in West Germany have replied to a letter sent to
all German prelates asking them to use their in-
fluence at the forthcoming session of the Ecumenical
Council in Rome in favor of final adoption of the
draft declaration repudiating the charge of deicide
against the Jewish people, the New York Times re-
- ported. Even these five bishops were "noncommittal"
on the subject, the report stated.
- The entire Catholic hierarchy in West Germany,
according to the report, had been sent a letter seek-
ing support for the proposed Vatican declaration on
'Jews. The letter was sent by the Coordinating Coun-
cil of Societies for Christian-Jewish Collaboration
in Germany and had been signed by tho, Rev. Dr.
W. Eckert, a Catholic; Dr. M. Stoohr, a Protestant;
and Rabbi N. P. Levinson. Among those five bishops
who were reported as "non-committal" on the issue,
One reportedly complained that Jewish leaders have
been trying to convert the draft Vatican declaration
"into political capital for Israel."
(In Cologne, the Protestant Congress, which had
assembled more than 20,000 representatives of every
Protestant denomination and community in West
Germany. issued a call to the forthcoming session
of the Catholic Ecumenical Council to adopt the draft
declaration On relations with Jews. The Congress
stated that repudiation of the deicide charge against
the Jewish people would "overcome an old, heavy
guilt and shame of Christianity.")
TEL AVIV—The West German Embassy opened here this week after prolonged negotiations be-
tween the Israel and the Bonn governments and amidst strong opposition from various groups who
objected to Bonn's appointment of Dr. Rolf Pauls and Dr. Alexander Toeroek as ambassador and
Dr. Pauls served as officer in the German army during World War II and Dr. Toeroek, a
naturalized German, served • as Hungarian diplomat in Berlin when the Nazis conducted mass de-
portations of Hungarian Jews to death camps. Both were cleared of Nazi ties by both governments
and were accepted by the Israel government. The general feeling in Israel is backing the govern-
ment. The opponents are mostly people who have lost their families and friends in the Nazi anni-
hilation of six million Jews in Europe.
An open air rally against Israel's diplomatic relations with West Germany was attended by
several thousand demonstrators at Dizengoff square here. A number of arrests took place in the con-

LONDON (JTA) — Government spokesmen in both the House of
Commons and the House of Lords rejected six requests by members of
the Parliament for withdrawal or changes in the design of a Battle of
Britain commemorative stamp which includes a swastika on a downed
German warplane. The Board of Deputies of British Jews also protested
to. the Postmaster General and asked for withdrawal of the issue. The
stamps'are scheduled for release in September.
The Board of Deputies protest was in a letter in which President
Solomon Teff declared that "we are aware that the purpose of the stamp
is to demonstrate the defeat of the evil forces which used this symbol
but we feel strongly that the illustration does not convey this impression."
"There is no need, I am sure, for me to tell you how hateful and
reminiscent of the most painful memories this symbol is to millions
of people of all races ; creeds and nationalities, and particularly to the
Jews," the letter stated. "The Board of Deputies has already received
numerous complaints from members of the Jewish community to
whom the sight of the swastika in any form is offensive in the

JERUSALEM — Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and David Horowitz, governor of the Bank of
Israel and author of a project being studied officially now by the United Nations to aid under-
developed countries, called upon the world's affluent nations Monday night to aid the "have riots"
in the spirit of a rich individual helping his poorer neighbor. They were the principal speakers at
the third "Rehovoth Conference" being held at the Hebrew University for discussion of fiscal prob-
lems facing the developing countries of the world.
Development assistance to the underdeveloped lands, said Eshkol, should become part of the
world's "moral order" as well as a manifestation of reciprocal interest among nations." Just as a
citizen with a high income feels he must use part of his income through his government for the
education, health and welfare of people whose income is lower," said the Prime Minister, "so should
wealthy nations assume the responsibility of contribuating part of their income to help developing

started several years ago at the Weizmann Institute of of Science at Rehovoth but is being held here
this time with the co-sponsorship of the Hebrew University and the Bank of Israel. The representa-
tives include 24 cabinet ministers from 38 developing countries. Deputy Prime Minister Abba Eban,
who originated the conferences at Rehovoth as president of the Weizmami Institute, is chairman of
