JWV Hits U.S. Role
in German Play on Oswald
WASHINGTON — Critical ques-
tions about cooperation by the
United States Embassy in Bonn
with Germany in production of
"Dallas — November 22nd," a play
in "extremely bad taste about the
assassination of President Ken-
nedy," have been raised by the
Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A.
National Commander Milton A.
Waldor said the play by former
Nazi screen writer Felix Lutzken-
dorf, who wrote Nazi propaganda
screen plays, did not merit the
cooperation of the American
Embassy. The embassy provided
pictures of President Kennedy and
U.S. Marine uniforms used in the
play. Commander Waldor said the
play amounted to "nothing more
than a semi-glorification and a
semi-justification of Lee Harvey
Oswald by depicting the assassin
as an intelligent idealist whose
guilt must be shared by society

WASHINGTON — Reliable re-
ports that Red Chinese military
advisers are arriving in Syria
were cited by National Command-
er Milton A. Waldor of the Jewish
War Veterans as confirmation of
JWV warnings that Communist
China is seeking to penetrate the
Near East and foment an Arab
"liberation war" against Israel.
Waldor called attention to the
arrival in Syria of 185 military ex-
perts and technicians to assist the
Communist-equipped Syrian mili-
tary forces. He noted that 415
more are on the way to Syria from
Peiping under a new Syrian-
"It is obvious that Red China
is trying to upstage Moscow in
wooing Arab favor and wants to
use Arab-Israel tensions as a
springboard," said Waldor.
He stressed that since Red
China is exploiting the Arab-Israel
conflict, "the United States should
react immediately and affirma-
tively to bolster Israel's military
potential to quickly crush any
Commander Waldor pointed out
that Red China "would like noth-
ing better than to create a di-
version in the Near East to esca-
late tensions in the Mediterranean
area so that American forces will
be tied down in reserve at NATO
bases and unable to answer rein-
forcement calls to Vietnam."
`Mustn't Arm Germany
With Nuclear Warheads'
WASHINGTON (JTA) — A pro-
posal that West Germany be
equipped with long-range weapons
armed with American nuclear
warheads was attacked here by

suggestion by a member of the

a defense of West Germany and
Europe but retain possession and
control of nuclear weapons to pre-
vent escalation and proliferation.
"Let us not forget that twice in
this century, German militarists
unleashed viciously irresponsible
wars of aggression," the statement
