JERUSALEM — The news that
former President Harry S. Truman
has canceled plans to come to Jeru-
salem Monday was received here
Wednesday with "deep regret but
with understanding." The former
President had been scheduled to
attend ground-breaking ceremon-
ies for the Truman Center for
Peace at the Hebrew University.
Although Hebrew University of-
ficials were reported as deeply re-
gretting Truman's change of plans,
dictated by concern over the pos-

lofty ideals of his country and of
all humanity." He then dedicated
the Memorial to "the man who
opened new frontiers of interna-
tional relations and human friend-
ships."
A huge crowd had collected
early in the morning on the top
of the hill where the memorial
building stands in the shape of a
cut tree, symbolizing the untimely
death of Mr. Kennedy. A Jerusa-
lem children's band opened the
ceremony with the Star Spangled
Banner as Eshkol and Warren ar-
rived. Before the formal dedication
there were addresses by Jacob -
Tzur, world chairman of the JNF;
Herman Weisman, president of the
American JNF; Mayor Teddy Kol-
lek of Jerusalem, and United States
Ambassador Walworth Barbour.
(In Independence, Mo., it was
announced Tuesday by President
Truman that, on his physician's-ad-
vice, he will not attend the dedi-
cation of the Truman Center for
the Advancement of Peace at the
Hebrew University to be held in
Jerusalem July 11.
Truman designated Thurgood
Marshall, U. S. Solicitor General,
to represent him at the ceremony.
He said he had planned to attend
the dedication ceremony, "but my
family and physician prevailed on
me not to risk so taxing a journey
at this time. It was suggested by
some that the ceremony be post-
poned to accommodate me, but I
felt that because of the urgency
of what we are attempting to do at
the Center for Peace we should
proceed with the program without
delay."
Mrs. Morris L. Schaver of De-
troit, one of the 41 contributors
who have made possible the erec-
tion of the Truman Peace Center,
has left for Israel to participate
in the dedication c e re monies. )

Birchers Rally
Vilifies the Jews

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

BOSTON — Unabashed anti-
' Semitism was indulged in from the
platform of the New England Rally
for God, Family and Country last
Saturday evening at the Statler-
Hilton Hotel, with a key spokes-
man for the John Birch Society
— Dr. Revilo P. Oliver — pro-
viding the vilification of Jews.
Oliver, contributing editor of
American Opinion, a John Birch
Society publication, in an address
on "Conspiracy or Degeneracy,"
told the right-wing audience that
the "conspiracy of the Jews," pre-
dating "the conspiracies of the
. . . Communists," has helped pro-
duce the evils of today. These
evils, he asserted, include "de-
generates, scum, dregs, savages
. . dear little cockroaches, howl-
ing mobs, parasites and the lazy
illegitimate."
Although the smear of Jews by
Oliver, a member of the faculty at
the University of Illinois, went un-
mentioned in the daily press, it
was clearly noted by representa-
tives of the Anti-Defamation league
of Bnai Brith and the Jewish Com-
munity Council, who were in at-
tendance at all sessions of the
rally.
