WASHINGTON (JTA) — Federal law enforcement officials noted an announcement
issued here by George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party, in the wake
of Sunday's disturbances in Chicago, pertaining to Rockwell's intention to lead a massive
march of white segregationists into the Negro neighborhoods of Chicago.
Rockwell said here that "thousands of white Chicagoans" have expressed desire to
march wider the Nazi emblem into the Negro section of Chicago and he will be at the
head of the column. He said the mood in Chicago was now receptive to Nazi leadership
of anti-Negro demonstrations and indicated that Nazis throughout the nation are converg-
ing on that troubled city. (Continued on Page 6)

Israel [Does Not Panic .. Faces
Vital Issues With New Courage

By PHILIP SLOMOVITZ

TEL AVIV, Israel—There is no nation without problems,
and there are few individuals without tensions. Israel as an entity
has as many issues to deal with as any national counterpart any-
where on earth, and Israelis are faced with as many challenges
as people anywhere. Yet, there is progress wherever one turns in
I any part of this land, and the citizens confront their daily tasks,
and their duties to their government, with a courage and deter-
mination that already has marked them as remarkably spirited.
There are mounting economic problems, as evidenced by
the current compulsion to return to austerity. Arab fedayeen
again have threatened the security of Israel's borders. You
wouldn't know it among the people themselves. There is concern
over the country's economy, but there is no lack of confidence
that a nation that has survived many more serious threats,
especially in the first years of statehood, can and will overcome
a recession.
Isn't the whole world facing similar problems — the British
Empire, for example? Therefore, economically, Israel is not
panicking. And the dangers on the borders certainly have not
created the fright that might ordinarily invade a land. Israelis
have pride in their military defenders and feel secure in spite of
the war-mongering of the neighboring lands.
For a visitor from the Diaspora, especially from an affluent
, country, there is nevertheless a self-evident lesson in the condi-
tions observable here. It is true that there is a drastic decline in
immigration and there are far fewer new settlers this year than
in the preceding three. This accounts, to a degree, for the
temporary recession. In spite of it, there is urgent need for
unending, and increased, aid to Israel from abroad. Cessation of
from Germany has added to the country's financial
lit =ties, and the kinsmen of the Israelis are duty-bound to pro-
, ... - -two means of support: that which comes from the United
Jewish Appeal and assures uninterruptions in providing educa-
tional and health programing and good housing for new settlers;
and the provision of jobs by means of industrial advances and the
setting up of new industries through private investments, primar-
ily through the Israel Bond efforts. The success of this two-
pronged program is vital to the country's need and will certainly
contribute towards the solution of the emerged two-nations-in-
one issue: the Occidental-Oriental conflict that must be resolved.
Of special and of major interest is an apparent desire on the
part of many Israelis to eliminate internal strife. For the first
time in eight trips to Israel, this correspondent heard expressions
of regret that there is a lack of unity: frequent assertions that
internal squabbling can be more damaging to a country than
external threats. For the first time in eight visits, this reporter
heard, from several Israelis, references to the tale in the Talmud
about Kamtza and Bar Kamtza — the story about the Jerusalem
family that had intended to invite their friend Kamtza to a dinner,

JERUSALEM — An extraordinary meeting of Israel's cabinet was convened
Tuesday to examine steps necessitated by the clash Monday between Syria and Israel
on Lake Tiberias,
The Cabinet regarded with considerable gravity a statement in the official Syrian
communique on the incident broadcast on Radio Damascus asserting that Syria had
"decided to pass from a defensive strategy to one of attack against Israei."
Premier and Acting Foreign Minister Levi Eshkol dispatched Tuesday morning
to the current president of the UN Security Council, Apollo K. Kironde of Uganda,
an energetic protest against the Syrian attacks and also asked Kironde to circulate
Israel's note among Security Council members.
Israeli envoys abroad were cabled a full background report and an explanation
of the incidents Monday and were instructed to make the facts known to the
governments to which they were accredited. They were asked in such communica-
tions to stress the "gravity of the situation."
The premier also invited Gen. Odd Bull, chief of staff of the UN Truce Super-
vision organization to meet with him "urgently" to discuss the situation and jointly
examine the measures needed to ensure calm on the borders.
Observers here were studying the incidents with great concern, seeing them
in a wider Middle East aspect and as indications of changing global strategy
which seemed to be one of permanent
escalation of hostilities. It was em-

as a "protective barrier" against Israel

dicated that violators of Soviet customs regula-
tions would be dealt with harshly. It said that
"our doors are open to all people who come to
use with honest intentions, but gentlemen who
are trying to abuse our hospitality and violate
Soviet law should not be misled and count on
immunity."

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel considers
charges printed Aug. 10 in Izvestia, as not only
unfounded but slanderously false.
Israeli sources noted that, each year, a short
time before the High Holy Days, the Soviet
propaganda machinery and press habitually find
methods of attacking Israel. This is done, they
pointed out, because, at this time of the year,
more Russian Jews think of Israel and of Jeru-
salem. "It appears," one knowledgeable source
stated, "that this propaganda is stepped up each
year before Rosh Hashana to - try to counteract
the increasingly warm Jewish sentiments among
the Jews of the USSR."

tOtal research and clinical resources for combating cancer and allied diseases.

allied diseases. It will consist of three floors.
