Britisher Gets Five Years for Setting Fire to Synagogue

LONDON (JTA) — Aubrey
Desmond Cadogan, 39, formerly
the managing director of a tailor-
ing firm here owned by Jews, who
reportedly told police that his
mother was Jewish, was convicted
in Old Bailey of having set fire
to a synagogue and sentenced to
five years' imprisonment.
While he had pleaded not guilty,
the court found that, on July 9,
he had broken into the Palmers
Green and Southgate District
Synagogue, in London, and had
set fire to it. Police witnesses
had testified that, immediately
after the fire had started, they
had found him carrying an oil can
near the synagogue.
The prosecution also charged
that, in Cadogan's home, police
found considerable quantities of
Nazi literature; including a copy
of a book entitled "Hilter Was
Right." One detective quoted
the man as saying after his ar-
rest that his mother was Jewish
and insisting: "So, I'm not like-
ly to do a thing like that, am
I?"
Cadogan continued to insist be-
fore the court that he was in-
nocent of the charge and, after
the sentence, called it "a travesty
of justice." But Judge Mervyn-
Griffith Jones, who presided at
the jury trial in Old Bailey —
which is London's C e n t r al
Criminal Court — told him:
"I put out of my mind what un-
doubtedly appeared to be your
political views. I deal with case
simply on the basis that you have
committed the offence of which
you have been convicted, coupled

with the fact that, in setting fire
to the contents of that synagogue,
you must have had it in mind to
burn down the synagogue as a
whole."
"This," the judge continued,
"was a deliberate act and not only
wicked in itself but one which
might have caused danger and loss

to surrounding buildings. It con-
stitutes conduct which, in a civil-
ized state, simply cannot be
tolerated." Detective Inspector
George Claiden told the court,
during the trail, that the arson
committeed at synagogues in north-
west London "had been of great
concern" to police authorities.

DIPLOMATIC NOTES: When West German Chancellor Erhard
comes to the United States for consultations with President Johnson,
he will be faced with two Jewish questions . . . First, why is the Bonn
government reneging on the decision of the German Parliament to pay
in 1966 $50,000,000 to Nazi victims who could not file application for in-

demnification before October 1953, because they were in countries be-
hind the Iron Curtain? . . . Second, why is the Bonn government failing
SEE
to act on its promise to start financial talks with Israel after Germany
and Israel establish diplomatic relations? . . Both questions are of
major interest to American Jewry . . . It took the leaders of the Con-
ference on Jewish Materials Claims Against Germany many months
AT
of negotiations with Bonn before securing compensation for the post-
1953 claimants as Nazi victims . . . American Jews also watched with
satisfaction the exchange of letters between Chancellor Erhard and

Israel's Premier Levi Eshkol last May, in which the former spoke of a
2 Blocks East of Southfield
"special relationship" between West Germany and Israel . . . The pre-
cise nature of the "special relationship" was thoroughly defined in dis-
cussions between the Chancellor's special envoy, Herr Birrenbach, and
Israeli leaders . . . Now indications in the West German press point to
the possibility that the Erhard government is inclined to seek excuses
from its pledges to Israel, claiming budgetary difficulties . . . The same
excuse of "budgetary difficulties" has also been given by West German
Finance Minister Rolf Dahlgruen when he announced last month that
the first payment of $50,000,000 compensation to the post-1953 claimants
will not be made in 1966, and would be "deferred for one year" ... Ex-
perts in this country who are watching West Germany's financial situa-
tion see no basis for these excuses ... They consider Germany's econo-
mic situatiim as prosperous this year as in any of the previous years,
and they say so to interested American Jewish leaders ...Is there any

Against 'Egyptian-Style' Fortifications

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A large
Israeli military task force, includ-
ing artillery and massive air sup-
port, opened an attack at dawn
Monday against Egyptian-style
fortifications in the Negev, as part
of the autumn maneuvers of Is-
rael's armed forces. The purpose
of the exercise was to test new
combat methods, providing an op-
portunity for the coordinated par-
ticipation of all of Israel's land-
based forces in a simulated war.
Israel's "blue" forces were to

test their strength against presum-
ed Egyptian positions which they
were to overcome before proce-
eding further inland, if Israel
were engaged in war against
Egypt. The Egyptian-style positions
were given names like "Shulamit"
and "Naomi" for the purposes of
this exercise.
