the possibility of a • visit by von

The delegation pointed out the
"extreme right-wing policies of the

ernment give due consideration to
the implications of permitting von
Thadden to enter Britain to act as
spokesman for the NPD's program.
Ennals assured the delegation
that "fullest consideration has been
given and will continue to be
given" to any proposed von Thad-

would conside rcarefully von Thad-

Although the invitations for lec-

had thus far been issued only by
student groups at Oxford — albeit
the bids had to be canceled—there
was no certainly that some other
British group might not seek to
have him appear on some platform
or other.

First Oxford., Now New York'

NEW YORK (JTA)—A leader of
Germany's major neo-Nazi party,
who was slated to hold a press
conference here Tuesday, was de-
nied the use of a hall in the Hotel
Commodore here because the
management feared the effect of a
possible picket line.
Adolph von Thadden. _ deputy
chairman of the West German Na-
tional Democratic Party. was also
unable to reserve the Overseas
Press Club for a news conference
"because of prior bookings."
Both the hotel and the club said
Monday that efforts to set up a
news conference for von Thadden
had been made by Kurt Ehm, of
Hopatcong. N.J.; who had termed
himself as "a correspondent for
West German newspapers."
"Elm is not known to any of
the West German information
centers in New York or at the
United Nations. A United Na-
tions accreditation officer said
Monday the man does not hold
full-time UN press accredita-
tion, "although he may have
been here on a temporary basis."
Several of the sources checked
said they had information to the
effect that he was a correspond-
ent for or contributor to the Deut-
sche National and Soldatenzeitung,
a West German newspaper fre-
quently labeled by Bonn officials
as pro-Nazi, and to the official or-
gan of the NPD, published at Han-
over, West Germany.
Dr. Max Nussbaum, chairman of
the American section of the World
Jewish Congress, who recently re-
turned from a 10 day visit to West
Germany, said von Thadden had
attended a conference of Fascist
leaders in Venice in 1962, and had
signed a "proctor to create "a na-
tional European party."
Commenting on von Thadden's
political affiliation, Dr. Nussbaum
said the party shuns outright at-
tacks on German Jews because to-
day this would not give the party
"a nice image," but it calls for
attacks on Israel, instead. The
party also urges, Dr. Nussbaum
said, an end to the war crimes
trials and an end to compensation
and reparation payments to Hitler's
The NPD, Dr. Nussbaum add-
ed,- had evoked "deep concern
but not undue worry" by its re-
cent electoral successes. He ex-
pressed "astonishment," how-
ever, over the views of Cardinal
Frings of Cologne, who attributed
the rise of Hitlerism to a dispro-
portionate number of Jews in
business, education, the arts and
"every area of German life."

Plans for a Rainy Day

tural Minister Chaim Gavati, an-
nounced the approval by the gov-
ernment of a plan for the forma-

clouds. The amount of 800,000 Is-

Bonn Says Budget Cut
Won't Void Payments
to Victims of Nazism

BONN, (JTA) — A West German
Finance Ministry spokesman told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
Sunday that a stabilization pro-

The -stabilization program is

about 4,000,000,000 marks ($1,000,-

However, the spokesman said, no
cuts were made in budgetary allo-
cations for scheduled indemnifica-

payments would be made as

of the victims were Jewish con-

Payments are made through the

mission of neutral experts to ex-
amine claims of such victims. The
figures were disclosed at the latest
meeting of the commission here.
