Jewish Congressional Delegation Numerically Unchanged

96,692 votes, to defeat Republi-
can Robert B. Cohen, who had
92,476 votes. Thus, the retire-
ment of Rep. Toll resulted in the
election of another Jew—keeping
the believed total of Jews constant
in the House.
It was an off-year for the three
Jewish Senators whose terms of
office did not expire this year.
They are Senators Jacob K. Jav-
its, New York Republican; Ernest
Gruening, Alaska Democrat, and
Abraham R i b i c o f f, Connecticut
Democrat.
The total number of Jews in
Congress remains 18—unless the
number is increased when more
facts are available about newly
elected Congressmen.
All members of the House of
Jewish faith are Democrats with
the exception of Rep. Seymour
Halpern, of Queens, N.Y., who
has served since 1959. Sen. Jay-
its is also Republican, the only

WASHINGTON—An initial sur-
vey of Tuesday's national election
returns disclosed Wednesday
that Jewish members of the House
of Representatives who offered
themselves for re-election all re-
tained their seats and that at
least one new Jewish congressman
was elected.
The total number of Jewish rep-
resentatives elected was 15—the
same total as in the 89th Con-
gress. However, it is possible one
or more additional new Congress-
men may turn out to be Jewish
when more information is avail-
able here.
Only one change took place in
the so-called "Jewish Delegation"
serving in the House. In Phila-
delphia's fourth district, where
incumbent Democratic Rep. Her-
man Toll retired last year, Demo-
crat Joshua Eilberg, 45, received

member of his party of Jewish
background in the Senate.
The new Jewish Congressman,
Representative-elect Eilberg of
Philadelphia, served previously in
the Pennsylvania State Legisla-
ture.
The Jewish incumbents re-
elected are Representatives Hal-
pern, Emanuel Celler, Leonard
Farbstein, Jacob H. Gilbert, Abra-
ham J. Multer, Richard L. Ottin-
ger, Joseph Y. Resnick, Benjamin
Rosenthal, Herbert Tenzer, James
H. Scheuer and Lester L. Wolff,
all of New York; Sidney R. Yates,
Illinois; Samuel N. Friedel, Mary-
land; and Charles S. Joelson, New
Jersey.
Jews figured in a number of
state and local contests with
varied results. Milton Shapp, a
Democrat, ran for governor of
Pennsylvania but lost to Re-
publican Lieutenant Governor
Raymond P. Shafer.

TORONTO — Lord Thomson of
Fleet, publisher of the London
Times and hundreds of other news-
papers in t he English-speaking
world, praised the "unbelievable
accomplishments of the people of
Israel in building a nation that
reflects the highest qualities of
independence, courage and self-
sacrifice."
Addressing a dinner honoring
John Bassett, publisher of the
Toronto Telegram, Lord Thomson
cited Israel for its massive pro-
grams of immigrant absorption,
education and economic develop-
ment.
More than 600 persons, all of
there Israel Bond purchasers, at
tended the dinner in honor of
Bassett, at which he became the
first Canadian to receive the Israel
Prime Minister's Medal for serv-
ice in the cause of Israel's devel-
opment." Bassett is one of Canada's
foremost non-Jewish leaders in
behalf of Israel, and has been a
generous supporter of the Israel
Bond campaign. $1,000,000 in Is-
rael Bonds were sold in conjunction
with the event, held at Toronto's
famous Inn On The Park.

Within hours after the Rom-
ney-Griffin triumph at the polls,
Senator Robert Griffin visited
The Jewish News on Wednesday
to extend through us his hearty
greetings to the Jewish com-
munity and to express thanks
to his supporters. Senator Grif-
fin, shown here with Carmi M.
Slomovitz, business manager of
The Jewish News, reiterated his
deep interest in a secure Israel
and again expressed opposition
to aggression in the Middle East
and to any support whatever by
our government to those foment-
ing conflicts and resorting to
sabotage.

KARLRUHE, Germany — A 24-
year-old New York telephone en-
gineer and a German stonemason
were sentenced to two years in
prison Wednesday for a plot to
assassinate leading West Germans
and revive Nazi rule by terrorism.
Reinhold Ruppe was accused of
forming an association with Erich
Lindner, 34, to attempt the
"abolishment" of the West German
Parliament. They swore an oath
of loyalty under a huge black flag
bearing the Nazi swastika.
Ruppe's photograph was identi-
fied in court by his mother,
Mrs. Marie Ruppe, a Brooklyn
housewife. In the picture he was
wearing a black uniform and
Nazi-style steel helmet, armed

with a rifle. Mrs. Ruppe, cry-
ing, said she never knew about
his political interests, the uni-
form or guns.
Their plans included the assas-
sination of Willy Brandt, mayor of
West Berlin, and Dr. Fritz Bauer,
Franfurt prosecutor known for his
pursuit of Nazi criminals.
Ruppe and Lindner said they
became frightened of the idea to
kill Bauer by shooting him or
placing a bomb in his desk or car.
They decided instead to blow up
the state court's main administra-
tive building of the Central Office
for Investigation of Nazi War
Crimes in Ludwigsburg.
Ruppe was arrested while scout-
ing the building.
A German-born American, Kurt
Reinheimer, who returned to the
United States before the other two
were arrested, is an alleged princi-
pal figure in the case.
Ruppe has said he distributed
posters for the extreme right-
wing National Democratic Party,
which made spectacular gains in
Hesse provincial elections. (See
