German Unions - Urge

Ban of Neo-Nazi Party

BONN (JTA) — The West Ger-
man trade union movement sent
to every member of Parliament
Tuesday a demand that Chancellor
Kurt Kiesinger act to ban the ex-
tremist National Democratic Party.
The movement contended that
there was sufficient evidence to
bring such a proposal before the
federal constitutional court to seek
the ban. Interior Minister Paul
Luecke has publicly called the .
NPD a neo-Nazi party but re-
jected earlier demands for action
to ban it.
The administrative court of
Schleswig-Holstein r u l e d here
Wednesday that the city of Flens_
burg must allow the NPD to use
the city hall for a mass rally
Flensburg had denied the hall
to the NPD for an election rally,
and the party had appealed to
the state's highest court.
Schleswig-Holstein will e l e c t
representatives to its state legisla-
ture next month, and the NPD is
putting on a vigorous drive' on
behalf of its ticket, boasting that
it expected to obtain at least 12
per cent of the votes in the state.
Last year, the NPD scored stun-
ning election successes in state
elections in Hesse and Bavaria.
Meanwhile, it was repotted that
the neo-Nazi party will not be able
to hold its national congress at the
end of June or the beginning of
July in the Bremen City Hall, as
planned, because the management
of the hall finds it "lacks space"
for the meeting.
The National Democratic Party
now has 30,000 members of whom
about one-third are between the
ages' of 20 and 45, an NPD mem-
ber of the Bavarian Parliament
asserted. The membership figures
were given by Wolfgang Ross, 32,
a former German army captain.
He said also that workers formed
the largest segment of NPD mem-
bership, comprising 29.3 percent.

NEW YORK (JTA) — Three
Jewish religious groups joined
with the Protestant Council of the
City of New York in a criticism
of the Catholic Church's opposi-
tion to liberalizing the state's

tants and Jews expressed regret
that the church had imputed to
them "advocacy of murder and

The Jewish position on the is-
sue is not unanimous. A number
of Orthodox rabbis also have ex-
pressed opposition to the proposed
abortion law changes.

Organized Labor . Condentns
Arab Aggression Against Israel Jew Replaces Controversial VP
BAL HARBOR, Fla. (JTA)—The equivalent of the United Jewish of Wayne, N. J., School Board
executive council of _the AFL-CIO Appeal, in which he said, that Is-

meeting here, adopted a five-point
statement on the mounting threat
to peace in the Middle •East. The
statement declared:
"1. The executive council vit 's
with deep concern the syste-d'a'-ic
intensification of Soviet intrigue in
the Middle East during the Last
year, especially in Egypt and S7tia.
"2. Notes the repeated acf:; of
aggression by the Syrian regime
against Israel, thereby threatening
the security and stability of the en-
tire Middle East;
"3. Deplores Nasser's gas
bombing of Ktaf Village on the
Saudi-Yemen border and the pro-
vocative aggressive actions by
Syria against Jordan calculated
to subvert and replace its gov-
ernment with a dictatorship
which would follow the warlike
course pursued by Damascus and
instigated by Cairo;
"4. Draws particular attention to
the incitement and menace of bor-
der warfare against Israel — such
as the infiltration of its territory
for the perpetration of warlike acts,
the laying of mines and other
forms of aggressive action;
"5. Urges the United States gov-
ernment to adopt a strong stand
against such aggression, to refuse
all economic and technical assist- .
ance to those countries sponsoring
a policy of encouraging border
warfare and eliminating their
The same day Vice President Hu-
bert H. Humphrey told a session of
members of the United Jewish Ap-
peal's National Young Leadership
Cabinet in Washington that the
U.S. government is doing every-
thing possible to slow down the
arms race in the Middle East in
order to redress any imbalance of
power that may threaten Israel's
The remarks by the vice presi-
dent were made during a two-day
parley in the nation's capital,
where 118 members of the UJA
Young Leadership Cabinet were
given intensive briefings on inter-
national and domestic affairs by
the departments of state, defense,
health and welfare and the office
of economic opportunity.
Humphrey's remarks on the Mid-
dle East arms race emerged dur-
ing a general discussion on the
United- States government's efforts
to achieve peaceful relations among
all the sovereign- powers. The vice
president also stressed that it was
the government's policy • to pre
serve the sovereignty and terri-
torial integrity of all the nations in
the Middle East.
In London Abba Eban, Israel's
foreign minister, declared that the
Israel government would like the
four major world powers — the
United States, Britain, France and
the USSR—"to support the princi-
ple of no territorial change" in the
Middle East. • -
Mere reiteration of the 1950
Tripartite Declaration, in which
the three Western powers joined
to guarantee the integrity of the
borders of Israel-and the Arab
states, would be insufficient at
this time, he stated.
"What we ask," he said, "Is for
Israel to be given the means of
assuring her own safety. And we
ask the four great powers to ex-
press their readiness to help any
state in the Middle East whose in-
tegrity and security are threaten-
Eban, who was in London all last
week, made that statement at a
luncheon given in his honor by the
Foreign Press Association. Among
his activities was a principal ad-
dress at the -annual dinner of the
Joint Palestine Appeal, the British

rael "invites" the four major pow-
ers to cooperate in their Middle
East policies and specifically re-
quested the Soviet Union to apply
its European policy regarding ex-
isting frontiers to the Middle East
as well.
Eban told the JPA event "Three
of Israel's neighbors have been
avoiding a military confrontation,
leaving only Syria as the question
mark." In an interview over the
British Broadcasting Corportaion,
Eban predicted that there will
probably be no "sudden peace" in
the Middle East, but- added that it
was unlikely that there would be
war, since "nothing is impossible
in the Middle East, but nothing is
Eban left Tel Aviv Tuesday night
for a tour of Southeast Asia during
which he will visit seven countries
— Thailand, Australia, New Zea-
land, the Philippines, Japan, Cam-
bodia and Burma.
(Eban's first stop on the tour
will be Bangkok, Thailand, where
he will be welcomed by the foreign
minister and will meet with the
king of Thailand.)

Two Israelis Wounded
in Action With Jordan

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Two members
of an Israeli border police detach-
ment were wounded during a four-
huor exchange of fire with Jordan-
ian border troops in the Tulkarem
central area. The Israeli army
spokesman said that a Jordanian
position opened fire on Israeli sur-
veyors. An Israel security detach-
ment returned the fire.
United Nations observers twice
called for a cease-fire which Israel
accepted and the Jordanians ap-
parently ignored. One of the Israeli
patrolmen was wounded in the
fighting to that point.
Finally the Jordanians opened
fire again, wounding the second pa-
The Israelis did not return the
renewed fire. Israel filed a com-
plaint with the Mixed Armistice

Syria Tells Security Council
That Israel 'Strayed' From
MAC's Prepared Agenda

Apparently preparing its excuses
for scuttling the extraordinary ses-
sion of the Israeli-Syrian Mixed
Armistice Commission — which is
now stymied by Syrian refusals to
adhere to that session's one-point
agenda — Syria has presented a
lengthy letter to the Security Coun-
cil here, charging that Israel has
"strayed away" from the agenda.
The letter, dated Feb. 23 but
made public here only Tuesday, ac-
cused Israel of insisting on "final-
izing" her alleged military occupa-
tion of the demilitarized zones on
the Syrian-Israeli- frontiers, build-
ing up "military fortifications" in
the area, refusing to remove those
installations after being requested
to do so by United Nations military
observers, and expelling "Arab
farmers from their villages."
After three meetings of ISMAC,
Gen. Bull adjourned the session
just as it was ready to hold a fourth
meeting because Syria insisted on
broadening the agenda.

WAYNE, N.J. (JTA) — Newton
Miller, vice president of the Wayne
Township School Board who last
month called for the defeat of two
Jewish candidates to the board, was
himself replaced Feb. 21 by the
only remaining Jewish member of
the board.
Miller, who had urged the defeat
of two Jewish candidates because
he said that Jews were "liberals,"
especially when it came to spend-
ing for education, stepped down as
vice president in favor of Fred
Lafer, whose seat on the board was
not up for election in last week's
balloting. Lafer was elected vice
president unanimously.
Miller, who was sharply critic-
ized for his anti-Semitic remarks,
declined to retract them althoug'h
he denied he was an anti-Semite.
Jack Mandell and Fred Kraus,
the two Jews whose defeat Miller
had called for, were badly defeat-
ed in the election.
When the new board met to elect
its officers, Lafer was unanimously

elected to succeed Miller. David J."
Caliri, a Presbyterian, was elected
president, a post Miller had indicat-
ed he hoped to receive. -
After the vote and an exchange-1
of conciliatory remarks between •
Lafer and Miller, the new board -
gave Miller a unanimous vote of
confidence in an apparent effort ,
to heal the divisions over his stand,..:
which led to a vote of censure by
the prior board in a resolution ask-
ing him to resign, which he rejected.
Miller was not up for reelection.
