U.S. Senator Philip A. Hart,
who has taken a deep interest in
the Zionist movement and in Is-
rael's progress, had an opportunity
to learn about Israel's status on
his visit there recently with Mrs.

Apologizing for his description

the first Jews to arrive since Fidel

In a statement to The • Jewish
News in which he described the
impressions he and Mrs. Hart
gathered on their visit in Israel,
Sen. Hart called Israel "a very
remarkable nation" whose people
mix "pride and sweat, friendliness
and gritty resolve."
Referring to the contrasts that
always impress the visitor to Is-

Release of Eichmann Aide
in Austria Hit in Rome

ROME (JTA) -- The Corriere
della Sera, leading Italian news-
paper, sharply criticized the re-
lease of Erich Rajakowitch, "Eich-
mann's right-hand man," from a
Vienna prison.
Rajakowitch, who was convicted
for his part in the deportation of
thousands of Dutch Jews as an
occupational official, was released
after a three-year _term.
The Italian, newspaper said it
was "astonished that, of the en-
tire Austrian press and news
agencies, only one daily" re-
ported on the Nazi's release. The
newspaper said that "the most
peculiar aspect" of the case was
that the Nazi was released even
before a higher court had the
chance to rule on an appeal by
the public attorney against the
Nazi's light sentence.
The newspaper recalled that
Rajakowitch fled from Milan in
1963 when his Nazi past was ex-
posed and that after he was denied
asylum by several countries and
refused readmittance to Italy, he
decided to give himself up to Au-
strian authorities.
