Edward Ginsberg of Cleveland, a
national UJA chairman, and Rabbi
Herbert Friedman, UJA executive
vice chairman, are heading the
group which will meet with lead-
ing government officials and rep-
resentatives of Jewish communi-
ties in various cities, including
West Berlin. The American Jew-
ish leaders met Wednesday with
Paul Luecke, the federal interior
minister, and were guests at a re-
ception given by Asher Ben Na-
than, Israel's ambassador to West
Germany. --
The Jewish leaders met Thurs-
day with Prof. Carlo Schmid,
vice president of the Bundestag,
the lower house of the West
German parliament, and confer-
red later with the mayors of
Bonn, Cologne, Hamburg and
other cities.
On arrival, Rabbi Friedman is-
sued a statement declaring that
"we want to deepen the contacts
with the Jewish communities in
Germany and to get a good on-the-
spot view of the work and prob-
lems in the communities. Our
meetings with official personalities
here are to give us information on
what the federal government has
done for the building of a demo-
cratic state and in which way the
younger generation is being in-
structed about the crimes of the
Nazis against the Jews and about
the kind of measures taken against
former Nazis."
On Wednesday, all Mission mem-
bers will gather in Geneva, Switz-
erland, to be briefed by JDC of-
ficials. From Geneva, they will fly
to Israel. Each member pays his
own way throughout the fact-
finding survey tour.
The absorption in Israel, as well
as the relief and rehabilitation
programs in other countries, has
been adversely affected by the
ending of West German reparation
payments, causing an annual loss
of $10,500,000 to the Jewish Agency
and one of $7,000,000 to the JDC.
The United HIAS Service which
also receives funds from UJA cam-

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—Yigal Allon,
Minister of Labor, asserted here
that the only way to alleviate the
economic crisis is to increase pro-
