by Israel Army VIPs

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — Premier Levi
Eshkol has issued an order in his
capacity as defense minister for-
bidding senior army commanders
from making public statements of
a political military nature.
The order reportedly was issued
after adverse comments provoked
by recent statements of a number
of generals, including Chief of
Staff Yitzhak Rabin. dealing with
the Syrian situation.
The statements evoked protests
from the Mapam Party, a member
of Premier Eshkol's coalition, and
other political groups, and from
most Israeli newspapers.
The order, which was issued
several days ago. was seen in
political circles as a continuation
of a policy followed by David Ben-
Gurion and Pinhas Lavon when
they served as defense ministers.
The order means that senior army
officers will have to present pro-
posed speeches and interviews, be-
fore they are released, to the
army spokesman or other com-
petent authorities for review.

the Vienna Jewish cemetery, as
well as the European Social MoVe-

Problems facing the world Zion-

heads of the skulls of the children
were pierced by bullets. Also
found in a bottle in the grave
was a well-preserved note on
which was written "Abe Tevis-
Zelikson, age 16, died 7/11/41."
The fortress had been used as
a concentration camp during the
German occupation of Latvia.
The Tass report noted that a
commission investigating Nazi
crimes in Daugavpils immediately
after the liberation of the town
in 1944, established that about
30,000 people, mainly women, chil-
dren and old men, were shot in
the summer of 1943 in a forest
several miles from the fort, but
nothing was known before about
executions in the fort itself.

Israel Economic Crisis
Termed Psychological
TEL AVIV (ZINS) — The crisis
in Israel' is more psychological at
present than economic. This is the
view of economic experts who
point out that unemployment has
not yet hit the more established
communities in the city and on the
farms. It is true that an under-
current of uneasiness is to be
sensed here too, but this sterns
more from a fear of future unem-
ployment than from any present
condition. However, it is to be
admitted that there is a founda-
tion for this lack of confidence.

then retired to Ben-Gurion's home
for an hour-long talk.
Today, President Zalman Shazar
will bring the greetings of the na-
tion to Ben-Gurion at Sde Boker,
where he will arrive by helicopter
accompanied by two prominent Is-
raeli writers, S. Y. Agnon and
Haim Hazaz.
Six mass meetings will be held
to mark Ben-Gurion's birthday —
one each in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv,
Haifa, Ramat Gan, Sde Boker and
at an other agricultural settlement.
The former premier will later visit
the United States, England and
France, where celebrations will be
held under the auspices of specially
formed committees.
Leaders of Premier Levi Esh-
kol's Mapai Party attended
Wednesday a meeting of the
party's central committee to hon-
or Ben-Gurion.
Ben-Gurion was not present. The
absence of the guest of honor, who
split last year with his long-time
party colleagues, was commented
on by Mrs. Golda Meir, who served
in many Ben-Gurion cabinets. She
said the situation was "illogical"
and hard to understand.
She and other speakers ex-
pressed the hope that some "mir-
acle" would occur and that Ben-
Gurion would "find his way back"
to Mapai and let "bygones be by-
However, a veteran party lead-
er, Shaul Avigur, put the matter
in another perspective. He said
that "we all esteem Ben-Gurion,
and no one can forget what he did
for Israel and for its security. But
his way now is no longer our way."
He and Mrs. Meir hailed their
absent comrade's leadership in the
creation of Israel and in serving
it and wished him many more

At the same time, the public
committee organizing celebrations
of the birthday, headed by Presi-
dent Zalman Shazar as honorary
chairman, announced it would issue
bronze, silver and gold medals in
connection with the celebrations.
The David Ben-Gurion medals are
being issued in two types, each in
bronze and silver.
In New York, Dr. Emanuel
Neumann, president of the World
Union of General Zionists, cabled
greetings Wednesday to Ben-
Dr. Neumann declared "All Zion-
ists the world over, regardless of
party and shades of opinion, join
the government and people of Is-
rael in tribute to your manifold
historic achievements which have
inscribed your name imperishably
among our immortals. God grant
you continued health. vigor and
fruitful achievements for many
years to come."
