India Admits Denying Israel's

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

NEW DELHI — An Indian cabi-
net minister admitted in parlia-
ment Wednesday that India could
not accept an Israeli offer of fer-
tilizers because of "political con-
Food and agriculture minister
Subramanian made the admission
in reply to a question from H.V.
Kamath, a deputy, who asked if
the Israel government had offer-
ed good grains in response to
global appeals by United Nations
Secretary General U. Thant, and
of the food and agricultural or-
ganization on India's behalf. The
MP also asked what had prevent-
ed India from accepting such an
offer if it was made.
The minister said that Israel did
not offer grain but did offer fer-
tilizer, but India could not accept
the offer for political reasons.
The MP then asked whether
people in India, should be allowed
to starve because of the govern-
ment's politics. The minister re-
plied that the Israeli offer was a
"paltry" one and that "we had
to take into account other reac-
tions. In the judgment of the gov-

Refuse to Ban

BONN (JTA)—The Ministry of
Justice said it would not ban a
scheduled meeting in Munich on
May 21 of the HIAG, the welfare
agency representing veterans of
the Waffen SS, the branch of the
Hitler Elite Guard which served
on military fronts during World
War II. Plans for the meeting were
protested Sunday by the Organiza-
tion of Form& Inmates of the
Dachau concentration camp.
Fears were expressed in Parlia-
ment that some soldiers of West
Germany's army were being at
tracted to meetings of rightwing
extremist groups. Some members
noted that the Stahlhelm, a veter-
ans group, was making increasing
attempts to recruit members among
the soldiers. The deputies were
assured that rightwing radicalism
would not be tolerated in West
German forces but the Defense
Ministry had no legal right to pre-
vent soldiers from attending Sta-
hlhelm meetings.

Moroccan Leader Insists
Bourguiba Backing Arabs

BEIRUT (ZINS) — "Tunisian
President Habib Bourguiba
changed his position on Israel-
Arab relations and now supports
all decisions by the Arab countries
Involving their relationship with
Israel." This assertion was made
by Alla-el-Pasi, leader of the Mor-
occan party "El Istanbul."
In his statement, which was
published in the Lebanese paper
"El Anwar," the Moroccan leader
declared that Bourguiba had be-
come convinced that the only sol-
ution to the "Israel problem" is
war. "On this score there is no long-
er any difference of opinion be-
tween Morocco and other Arab
Countries," he said.

Tourism Means Bread
to 18,000 Israeli Families

Kol, Israel minister of tourism,
asserted here that 18,000 families
derive their livelihood from the
tourist trade, and their number is
continually growing. Kol further
Said that in the next four years
Israel must invest 70 million
pounds to increase tourist facil-
Israel must also raise the stan-
dard of various tourist services,
as 15 per cent of the visitors leave
the country dissatisfied by their
experiences. He also revealed that
only 45 per cent of the tourists
arriving in Israel are Jews.

son, who broadcast to American

ernment, we thought we need not
accept it."
Another MP, Dr. Sighvi, asked
whether India had received any
offer of large-scale help from Is-
rael for its farm programs as well
as for emergency food needs. The
minister replied that, as far as he
could remember, Israel had not
offered large scale agricultural

Globke States
He Belonged
to Resistance

HAGEN, West Germany (JTA)
—Dr. Hans Globke, who was eased
out of his post as State Secretary
to then Chancellor Konrad Ade-
naure for his Nazi past, asserted he
had belonged to the resistance
group which tried in July 1944 to
assassinate Hitler.
Appearing as a witness here at
the trial of 12 former guards at the
Sobibor death camp, he also assert-
ed that he had not heard about the
Nazi "final solution" of mass mur-
der of all Jews until after the war.
He had provided a commentary on
the Nazi Nuremberg race laws as
a high official in the Nazi Justice
He testified that the 1935 Nur-
emberg Laws were unjust but he
insisted that they had tended to
limit the evil intentions of the
Nazis. He added that at first the
Nazis had adhered to those laws
but that later they had "committed
excesses." He also asserted that as
an official who did not belong to
the Nazi Party, he was unable to
prevent those excesses and that, in
any case, he had not realized the
"unjustness" of the Nuremberg
Laws at the time.

Commentary Reader: Guide to World
Affairs and Rich Fictional Treasury

How do we define a Jewish wri-
ter? Is it enough to be a Jew and
a writer? The manner in which the
popular Jewish writers have be-
come representative of America,
their roles as art critics, essayists,
novelists, psychoanalysts, sociolo-
gists, is outlined in an interesting
essay, "The Jew as Modern Amer-
ican Writer," by Alfred Kazin,
which appears as an introduction
to "The Commentary Reader: Two
Decades of Articles and Stories,"
published by Atheneum (162 E.
38th, NY 16).
It is a large book of nearly 800
pages and was edited by the
editor of Commentary, Norman
The list of authors included in
this work is in itself most im-
pressive. Edmund Wilson, R. H. S.
Crossman, Saul Bellow, Theodore
Rankel, Issac Rosenfeld, Hans
Morgenthau, Paul Goodman and
a score of others, including many
additional best known Jewish wri-
ters' names, comprise the authors

plicitly the value of this collection.

The entire collection is like a
critique of the events of the last
20 years. In this reader we find a
collection of essays that diagnose
the major occurrences in this
country and in the world in the
last 20 years.
The additional treat is the in-
clusion of some of the best short
stories — by Issac Bashevis Sin-
ger, Bernard Malamud, Don Ja-
cobson and others.
In its totality, therefore, we have
an outstanding work that serves
as a guide to world affairs and as
a fictional treasury.
