(Continued from Page 1)
As plans go forward for the
rally, the city is mobilizing in an-
ticipation of the coming campaign.
Young people will be distributing,
campaign posters to stores, busi-
nesses and congregations in the
city and its suburbs. The congre-
gational council is now actively
involved in assuring support by
synagogue, temple and congrega•
tion members. Children from the
many Hebrew and Jewish schools
will be studying and talking about
the campaign that benefits 57 ag-
encies and services locally, nation-
ally and overseas. Members of the
junior division of campaign will act
as hosts and ushers at the rally.
Heads of Jewish fraternal organi-
zations are now contacting their
members.
Campaign divisions are keeping
up the steady pace of advance
meetings that already raised more
than $3,000,000 for the 1966 drive.
The women's Phon-O-Gift cam-
paign got underway Wednesday.

eral Department Stores, will be

the section is slated by Al Sklar,
section chairman, with the co-
chairmen, Charles Abramson, Mar-
vin I. Danto and Eugene Mondry.
David S. Mondry, chairman of
the division, reports that this will
be the division's second major
meeting in March. A meeting held

last week broke all attendance
records for the division and re-
sulted in a 22 per cent increase
over last year's pledges.
Eisenberg and Green, general
campaign chairmen, applauded the
work of the divisions and urged all
members of the Jewish community
to join with community leaders in
launching the campaign at the
rally March 23.

Arab Spy Gets 15 Years; Another
on Trial Will Escape Execution

HAIFA (JTA)—An Arab caught
in November 1964, as he attempt-
ed to infiltrate into Israel was sen-
tenced here in the Haifa District
Court Tuesday to 15 years im-
prisonment. Convicted on a charge
of spying, the man, a Lebanese,
had been wounded in a gun battle
with Israeli security forces dur-
ing the 1964 incident, but has now
recovered fully from his injury.
Mahmoud Hijazi, a Jordanian
Arab sentenced here to death a
year ago after he was captured as
a member of an El Fatah gang
bent on sabotage inside Israel, will
escape execution, it was indicated
Monday.
He is on trial again before a
military court. He was granted
a second trial following his earli-
er death sentence because he
had not been defended by foreign
counsel.
Tuesday, the prosecutor of the
case said he will not ask for the
death sentence, due to "special
circumstances" in the case. Hijazi

has pleaded not guilty to all four
points in the indictment facing the
military court. He is accused of
firing at members of Israel's de-
fense forces, throwing a hand
grenade at an Israeli patrol unit,
illegally carrying firearms and
being a member of "a gang of
felons." He was captured in Janu-
ary 1964, after infiltrating into Is-
rael near the Jordanian border
along with other members of El
Fatah.
