THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Anti-Semitic Professor Ousted in Austria

NEW YORK (JTA)—The Aust-
rian Information Office here re-
ported Tuesday that Taras Borod-
jkewycz, whose presence on the
faculty of the Vienna School of
Economics created widespread
student disorders over charges he
was a Nazi, has been placed in
permanent retirement.
The report said that the profes-
sor was suspended from duty last

Hails Israel `Despite
Political Differences'

JOHANNESBURG, (J T A ) —
South Africa's minister of tourism,
Frank Waring, expressed his coun-
try's admiration for Israel "not-
withstanding political differences
between the two countries."
For years, Israel has voted at the
United Nations with the majority
of members in condemning South
Africa's apartheid policy.)
Waring, who is also minister-
designate for sports, was guest of
honor at a dinner here marking
the 30th anniversary of the South
African Maccabi Association and
Johannesburg's Balfour Park
Sports Club.
Addressing his remarks to Is-
rael's Consul-General Y a acov
Monbaz, who was a guest at the
event, Waring said: "South Africa
has always admitted the courage
and fortitude of your people
against the enemies that surround
you. We in South Africa can take
to heart that spirit and courage of
a small nation in the face of en-
emies that surround her. We can
take an example and lesson from
you."
He praised the "inspiration and
aspiration of the Zionist move-
ment."

year, relieved of his post and
placed in permanent retirement
by the school's disciplinary senate
last month.
The 'presence of the professor
who openly professed anti-Semi-
tic and anti-democratic princi-
ples caused a demonstration in
March, 1965 in which an elderly
concentration camp survivor,
Ernst Kirschweger, was fatally
injured:
The senate of the school issued
judgement on May 14, declaring
that a man who followed anti-
Semitic principles was "complete-
ly incompetent" to teach in an
Austrian institute of higher learn-
ing.
enforced retirement was one of
the most severe sentences an Aus-
trian university may impose.

Moscow Shuns Use
of Credits in Israel

TEL AVIV (JTA) - - Soviet inac-
tion in use of credits placed at the
Soviet Union's disposal by Israel
w a s considered here Sunday as
pointing to a new deterioration in
Soviet-Israel relations.
Under terms of a property set-
tlement reached last year, Israel
paid the Soviet Union $4,500,000
for full property rights for a site
in central Jerusalem known as the
"Russian Compound." The prop-
erty was acquired by t h e then
Czarist - controlled Orthodox
Church. Under t h e pact, Israel
paid $1,500,000 in cash with the
rest offered in credits for Israeli

products.
The Soviets have never used the

credit, apparently fearing that if it
did, the move could be interpreted
as an expansion of Soviet-Israel
relations.

French, Israelis
to Strive for Better
Balance of Trade

PARIS, (JTA)—A week of meet-
ings. between Israel Trade Minis-
try experts and French trade of-
ficials ended with plans for closer
cooperation between the two coun-
tries for the goal of a more bal-
anced trade relationship. France
currently sells vastly more prod-
ucts to Israel than it buys from
Israel.
Henri Rousselier, director of the
National Center for Foreign Trade,
in summarizing the plans, also an-
nounced that a mission of French
engineers and technicians would
soon repay the visit of the Israeli
experts.
The nine-man Israeli mission
was headed by David Golan, dir-
ector of the ministry of commerce
and industry.
Rousselier said one proposal
called for France to make an
effort to increase the quantity
of imports from Israel, mainly
in agricultural machines.
Another provides for cooperation
between French and Israeli en-
gineering organizations in the eval-
uating of markets in the two coun-
tries.
A third proposal involves an ef-
fort to coordinate scientific and
technical research in the two coun-
tries, to advance the practical ap-
plications of such research. The
three proposals were included in
an official communique from the
French Finance Ministry.
Rousselier told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that France has
never accepted the Arab boycott
of Israel. He added that he felt
France should seek a formula to
protect French industry from hav-
ing its commercial relations with
Israel hindered by the Arab boy-
cott.
