3 Mapai Members Kicked Out
for 'Slander Campaign' in Party

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV—The secretariat of
Premier Levi Eshkol's Mapai Party
expelled three Ashdod members of
former Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion's new rival party because
they "conduct a slander campaign
inside Mapai." The rival group is
called the National Workers List,
or Rafi.
One of the three expelled mem-
bers, i'deir Evenhaim, touched off
a violent controversy by reading a
statement that the Mapai central
committee was fighting Rafi in
Ashdod because "central commit-
tee members are whites while
Ashdod inhabitants are brown."
Evanhaim also charged that mem-
bers of the Mapai secretariat had
been "educated" to hate Israelis
of oriental origin.
"Mapai regards oriental
Israelis as people whose task it
is to build marble houses for
Mapai leaders and to furnish

New Libel Law

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The
Israel Cabinet empowered Premier
Levi Eshkol to name a public com-
mission to study protests against
Israel's much-criticized new libel
law.
The cabinet approved appoint-
ment of such a commission, to in-
clude a Supreme Court justice and
representatives of the Israel Bar
Association and the Israel Journa-
lists Association, which have
strongly critized some aspects of
the new law. The commission was
given the task of setting up an-
other hearing for those who con-
sider the law an infringement on
freedom of expression.

Parliament met in special
session on the issue Wednesday.
The special session was made
mandatory by submision of a
request signed by 30 members of
Parliament representing the
opposition Herut-Liberal bloc
and Map a m. The coalition
parties, including Mapai, Miz-
rachi and Ahdut Avodah, were
against changes now, on grounds
that the cabinet has referred the
issue to a committee.
The proposed amendments,

developed by members of the
Knesset in cooperation with the
Journalists Association, aim to re-
store the right to report freely on
public matters without being
bound by the requirement in the
new law that such comment be
limited "to a suitable extent."
Another proposed amendment
would eliminate a clause in the
gew law making publication of
privileged matter, such as Knesset
and court proceedings, subject to
prosecution for libel if published
more than three years after the
. event.
The libel law was passed on the
last day of the present Knesset
term, before it disbanded in ad-
vance of the November elections
to choose a new parliament. Crit-
icism of the new libel law devel-
oped on a significant scale only
afterward.
The opposition parties acted to
recall the Knesset in special ses-
sion because it - remains in office
until the day of the first meeting
of the new Knesset, following the
elections.

those houses with expensively
upholstered armchairs," he de-
clared, and he warned the sec-
retariat to avoid repeating in
Israel the "tragedies" of racial
conflict in Alabama and Los
Angeles.

The openly racist attack was the
most violent in the deepening cleft
in Israel's dominant labor party.
The dispute was touched off when
Ben-Gurion assailed Premier
Eshkol's leadership of the party
and the country and announced an
independent list to compete against
Mapai in local and parliamentary
elections on Nov. 3.
Mapai Secretary Reuven Bar-
katt, reacting to the attack, ex-
pressed "indignation and shock."
He added that those who backed
Evenhaim "must realize the hor-
rible conclusions of their deeds."
He challenged Evenhaim to pub-
lish his statement in full "so that
every citizen will realize what dan-
gers we face." However, Evenhaim
refused and quietly left the build-
ing where he had made the state-
ment. The other two expelled were
Andrew Bzrness and Avraham
Hadar.

Vermont Musicians
Harmonize With Kibbutz

JERUSALEM — Marlboro : Vt.,
and Kibbutz Givat Brenner may
be a few thousand miles apart but
they are close in many ways, some
visiting Marlboro Festival soloists
have discovered.

The musicians, who have been
the hit of the Israel Music Festival,
saw the largest kibbutz in Israel
and discovered that the coopera-
tive settlement closely resembles
their own "republic of equals."
From- work schedules to dormi-
tories, the guests kept finding sim-
ilarities. They were particularly
impressed with Givat Brenner's
own 60-member orchestra, man-
dolin orchestra and 40.000-book
library. The kibbutz also has a
choreographer and a dramatic
teacher.

Canadian Racist Renounces Nazism

TORONTO (JTA — David Stanley, youthful self-styled Nazi lead-
er and racist, renounced Nazism at a press conference here and apolo-
gized for his vicious hate literature campaign against Canadian Jewry.
He told newsmen that it was "not an easy decision for me to make. I
came to the conclusion that my ideas are false."

He declared: "My ideas were not rational or logical, they were
based on twisted emotion; they were negative and destructive, and
I am sick of it." He partly blamed the newspapers and the government
for the attention his anti-Semitic and neo-Nazis activities had received,
adding that, if it had not been for the publicity, "I would have quit
years ago."
