Jewish Commitment
to Social Justice Linked
to Disobedience Issue

president of the American Asso-
ciation of University Professors
said the Jewish commitment to
social justice requires that those
who resort to civil disobedience
"must not show contempt for law
and order" and in such protests
they must act to "inflict minimal
harm upon the community."
Dr. David Fellman, a Univer-
sity of Wisconsin professor of
political science, discussed the
issue at the international conven-
tion here of the A e 1 p h Zadik
Aleph, the Bnai Brith youth organ-
ization. Dr. Fellman is an alumnus
of the first AZA chapter in Omaha.
In outlining the limits of civil
disobedience to his Jewish youth
audience, Prof. Fellman lauded
the Jewish "passion for justice and
freedom" and said that "directly
or indirectly all of us have been
nurtured in the timeless Jewish
concepts of human worth, individ-
ual dignity, morality and freedom."
He declared that acts of civil
disobedience "must be under-
taken thoughtfully in the light of
a careful calculation of the poten-
tial social costs and benefits which
may be involved."
He added that `she who resorts
to an illegal course of action must
be prepared to accept the penalties
prescribed by law, though the
judge and jury may well take into
account the quality of the protest
in determinnig the nature of the
punishment to be meted out."
Pennsylvania Supreme Court
Justice Michael A. Musmanno
addressed 400 participants here
in a joint session of the 43rd
annual international convention
of the Aleph Zadik Aleph and
the 22nd annual international
convention of Bnai Brith Girls.
Justice Musmanno, a former
presiding judge in the inter-
national war crime tribunal at
the Nuremberg Trials, spoke at
the Bnai Brith Youth Organiza-
tion's commemoration of the
destruction of 1,200,000 children
during the Nazi period in Europe.
"If people lose sight of the vast-
est crime in recorded history."
Justice Musmanno continued,
"they weaken their armor for the
battles which lie ahead. This is
because the dragons of racial and
religious prejudice are not yet
wholly slain.
"These dragons still breathe the
fire of oppression in Russia where
Jews are denied the privileges sup-
posedly guaranteed under the Sov-
iet constitution to all citizens of
the Communist empire. The Jews
in that dark country may not
worship, assemble, or speak freely,
and the doors of economic oppor-
tunity are to them merely cracks
in the steel wall of discrimination.
Conditions are even worse in Arab
Later Dr. Mordecai M. Kaplan
told 157 leaders at the BBYO In-
ternational Leadship Training
Conference here that "we are liv-
ing in an era of nationalism. There
is nothing wrong with nationalisrb
as such . however, we must have
ethical nationalism and it is this
quality which is woefully lacking
by nations of the world today, in-
cluding our own. Nations must
learn to relate to one another ac-
cording to the ethical precepts
which were formulated by Jewish
sages and leaders many centuries
ago. The United Nations offers the
greatest hope for the realization of
ethical nationalism."

Nazi MD's Extradition

Eyed by Ghana Court

BONN (JTA) — Dr. Horst
Schumann, the Auschwitz concen-
tration camp physician for whose
extradition West Germany is fight-
ing at Accra, Ghana, is claiming
that he is not subject to extra-
dition because he is charged with
a "political" violation instead of
with a criminal act, according to
a report received here from a
Ghanaian capital.
Dr. Schumann is being defended
by a Ghanaian attorney, Harold
Darko. The German government's
demand for extradition is being
argued in the court at Accra by
Josef Fabry, representing the state
prosecutor here.
Meanwhile, it was announced
that Herbert Weyernd, a former
SS officer charged with participa-
tion in the mass murder of Jews
during World War II, has appar-
ently skipped bail, and has dis-
appeared on the eve of his trial,
scheduled to have been held this
week in Wuppertal.
Weyernd has been free on $2,000
bail, awaiting trial. It was pointed
out here in juridical circles that,
under German court practice, the
ordinary suspect in the murder of
-a single victim would be refused
any bail whatever, and certainly
would not have been freed on bail
as low as 8,000 marks ($2,000).
German police authorities who
announced the man's disappear-
ance said they were now instituting
a search for the accused mass
