Training German Troops
in Canada Spurs Reaction
by Jewish Congress

MONTREAL ( J T A ) — The
Canadian Jewish Congress issued
a statement here expressing the
hope that the emotions and reac-
tions of a large number of Canadi-
ans "will not be flouted" by the
fact that West German troops are
to receive training at Camp Shiloh,
in Manitoba.. -
The CJC noted that "the Jewish
citizens of Canada recognize with
other Canadians" the value to
Western democracy of Canadian
commitments to NATO and the
need for training forces for NATO.
able "At the same time," the
statement declared, "it is an
inescapable fact of social and
political life that emotions are
deeply stirred when such obliga-
tions confront a large number
of people who personally, or
whose famalies, underwent un-
paralleled pain and suffering at
the hands of Nazi Germany, of
which the Wehrmacht and allied
military units were the symbol."
"The Canadian Jewish Congress
must assume," the statement con-
tinued, "that in the discharge of
Canada's treaty obligations, where-
by responsibility exists for the
training of military personnel by
a cadre of German officers, care is
taken that this country is not
hospitable to those very forces
which were integral parts of the
machinery of death and destruction
of millions of innocent civilians.
It is therefore hoped that the un-
derstandable emotions and reac-
tions of a large number of new-
comers to this country, particular-
ly, as well as of others of our popu-
lation, will not be flouted by a
disregard of the principles in-

Elect Golda Meir
Mapai Leader

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Mrs. Golda
Meir, for many years Israel's for-
eign minister, was formally elected
Feb. 3, as secretary general of
Premier Eshkol's Mapai Party by
the Mapai Secretariat and Central
Committee. Mrs. Meir, who re-
tired as foreign minister last
month, agreed - to accept the post
at a meeting of the Mapai appoint-
ments committee.
Moshe Kol, minister of devel-
opment and tourism, agreed to
continue temporarily as head of
the Youth Aliyah Department of
the Jewish Agency, a post he re-
linquished when he was named
to the cabinet. Kol, who is not a
member of the newly elected Jew-
ish Agency executive, was asked
by Aryeh L. Pincus, chairman of
the executive, to stay on as head
of Youth Aliyah until his succes-
sor was named.
The Knesset was informed that
Binyamin Shahor of the National
Religious Party had been ap-
pointed deputy minister for reli-
gious affairs and that he has al-
ready taken up his new post.
When Prime Minister Levi Esh-
kol's new coalition Cabinet was
presented to the Knesset two
weeks ago, Religious Affairs Min-
ister Zorah Warhaftig announced
that he reserved the right to ap-
point a deputy.
Mrs. Meir said Monday that,
as the nation's largest party,
Mapai must demand sacrifices
from the people.
"Mapai must stop being nice,
and have the courage to insist that
individuals and groups accept sac-
rifices for the common good,"
Mrs. Meir declared. She made the
comments during a visit to Mapai
headquarters where her predeces-
sor, Reuven Barkatt, introduced
her to the department heads. She
also. reiterated her belief that the
current alignment between Mapai
and Ahdut Avoda would lead to
an eventual merger of the two
Mrs. Meir began the task of
restoring the party unity splin-
tered by former Premier David
She was elected by acclamation,
first by the party Secretariat and
then by its Central Committee at
a meeting at which Premier Eshkol
said he believed that the party
could find sufficient internal
strength to respond to Mrs, Meir's
leadership. -
The split developed from Ben-
Gurion's decision to form a splin-
ter party, the Israel Worker's list
(Rafi) which unsuccessfully chal-
lenged Eshkol's leadership in the
general election last Nov. 2.
Mrs. 1Vleir said that, in assuming
the post, she did so in full under-
standing of the damage wrought
by the split which, she said, was
in contrast to the movement's
tradition of unity. Acknowledging
the "residual wounds" among
Mapai comrades, she promised to
work to heal them.

NEW YORK (JTA) — "While
Israel's adversaries have the capa-
city to harass her growth and
strain her resources, it is beyond
their power or prospect to alter
the essential reality of her integrity
and independence," Israel's For-
eign Minister Abba Eban declared
at a dinner of the American
Friends of Tel Aviv University at
the New York Hilton Hotel.
The event celebrated the estab-
lishment of the Moshe Sharett In-
stitute of Educational Science at
Tel Aviv University. Eban paid
tribute to Sharett, who was Israel's
first Foreign Minister and was at
one time Prime Minister. "Mr.
Sharett's vision of an Israel se-
curely planted in the family of
nations has become closer to ful-
fillment than seemed possible two
decades ago," Eban said. He also
lauded Dr. George S. Wise, the
president of the Tel Aviv Univer-
sity, for "having paid early and
pious respect to the founding
father of Israeli diplomacy."
Prof. Yuval Neleman, vice-presi-
dent of the university, described
the growth of the university and
the role of the late Mr. Sharett in
fixing its spiritual profile.
Designed further to improve the
general educational standards of
Israel, the Sharett Institute will
train urgently needed teachers in
specialized fields, principals, school
superintendents, administrators,
educational psychologists and so-
cial workers, and other specialists
in the country's expanding school
system. Funds raised in the U. S.
will supplement those granted by
the Israel government to construct
a building on the university's new
campus in the Ramat Aviv suburb
of Tel Aviv, to set up a number of
chairs in the educational discip-
lines, to recruit the necessary
faculty in Israel and from abroad,
and to establish research projects
and to grant advanced study schol-
Tel Aviv University, Israel's

youngest and fastest growing in-
stitution of higher learning, open-
ed its 1965-66 academic year with
an all time high in student enroll-
ment. From a student body of 148
in 1956-57, it grew to 3,100 last year
and reached almost 5,000 this year.
This number is expected to double
in the next three years. Its aca-
demic body of 56 in 1956-57 now
totals more than 550. Despite its
rapid growth the university was
forced to turn away more than
1,000 of the 3,000 qualified appli-
cants who sought entrance this
year because of lack of space.

Manowitz, also known as "Ausch-
witz Three," was a subsidiary camp
where thousands of victims, most
of them Jews, perished during the
Nazi occupation of Poland. It was

formed forced labor in a factory
