Jewish Cemetery
Vandalized in
Hartford, Conn.

HARTFORD, Conn. (JTA) — A
wave of vandalism in the Jewish
section of a local cemetery where
more than 130 gravestones were
overturned amid a litter of empty
liquor bottles and beer cans drew
expressions of shock and disgust
from Hartford's chief of police and
from the head of the Jewish fed-
eration's community relations com-
mittee.
The desecrations occurred at the
Zion Hill Cemetery while the care-
taker was on vacation and were
confined to the Jewish section.
Damage was estimated in excess
of $2,000. Police Chief John Ker-
rigan said "these dastardly acts
committed by unkown bigots who
defiled and toppled gravestones
of Jewish deceased are appalling
and, I feel certain, shock the con-
sciences of all men of good will
everywhere."
Jerry Wagner, chairman of the
federation's CRC, said "we want
to express our shock that such an
incident could happen in Hartford
We are satisfied that the police
department is doing everything to
apprehend those guilty and are
assured that this will not happen
again." ,

Morris Abram Eulogizes
Francis Cardinal Spellman
for Role in Vatican Action

SAN FRANCISCO (JTA) — The
late Francis Cardinal Spellman,
who died in New York Dec. 2, was
eulogized by the head of the Ameri-
can JeWish Committee as a "gen-
tle, unpretentious and friendly
human being" with whom the AJC
enjoyed "a warm and long friend-
ship."
In a statement issued during the
annual meeting of the Committee's
national executive board here,
Morris B. Abram, AJC president,
said of Cardinal Spellman:
"The AJC will remember with
appreciation the quiet but deter-
mined and effective personal
leadership of the Cardinal in sup-
port of adoption of the Vatican
Council's declaration on non-
Christian religions which called
for a 'mutual knowledge and re-
spect between Christians and Jews.'
Beneath his complex public image,
we knew him as a gentle, unpre-
tentious and friendly human being.
and memories of our close asso-
ciation with him will long be cher-
ished. In the spirit of our ancient
tradition, we pray that 'his soul
be bound up with the bonds of
eternal life.'"

NY's Maimonides Center
Has Mental Health Unit

NEW YORK (JTA) — The Mai-
monides Medical Center of Brook-
lyn unveiled a $2,100,000 Commun-
ity Mental Health Center at a
cornerstone-laying ceremony last
week. The facility, the first of its
kind in Greater New York's 78
voluntary general hospitals, was
developed to provide a complete
range of mental health services for
a Brooklyn community — Boro
Park — which has no other psy-
chiatric facility.
The four-story structure, sched-
uled for completion in mid-Janu-
ary, was financed under the Fed-
eral Mental Health Center con-
struction law of 1963. One-third of
the cost came from the federal gov-
ernment, one-third from New York
state funds and the remainder from
the Maimonides Medical Center.
The new facility will include 25

in-patient beds and 16 night beds

for patients who work days and

get treatment at night; six beds
on the general hospital pediatric
floor for the treatment of children
with emotional illnesses and a day
treatment center for 30 patients.
The center also will offer a 24-hour
emergency service for residents of
the community and a 24-hour-a-day
treatment team to be sent to a
patient's home, as well as out-
patient services and community
consultation and educational ser-

French Foreign Minister
Says Big 4 Solution Vital

PARIS (JTA)—French Foreign
Minister Maurice Couve de Mur-
ville said Tuesday in an interview
with the Paris newspaper, France
Sor, that the UN Security Council's
Middle East resolution of Nov. 22
"will solve nothing, but is a first
step."
He added that the Middle East
problem must be settled on a
political level with the aid of the
Great Powers, but so far the
powers have been unable to reach
a common agreement.
Couve de Murville said he
thought it was "curious" that
people accused France of abandon-
ing her neutrality in the Middle
East just because, prior to the
Six-Day War last June, France de-
clared that she could not side with
anyone who opened military oper-
ations.

S. African Press
Asks Ban on Funds
Going to Israel

JOHANNESBURG (ZINS) —
Attacks against Israel and against
the Jewish community in South
Africa have appeared in the press
and -broadcast on the radio as a
result of the criticism voiced by
Israel's representative to the politi-
cal commission of the United Na-
tions aganst the racial policies fo
the South African government. The
newspaper "Transvaaler" writes
that any South African citizen who
harbors sympathy toward Israel is
bereft of national self-respect and
is not worthy of enjoying citizen-
ship rights in South Africa.
T h e semi-official newspaper
"Dagbrech" urged the South Afri-
can government to ban the trans-
mission to Israel of appeal funds
raised in the country during the
mergency in the Middle East. The
Joint Appeal Funds raised during
this period totaled $1,000,000,000.

Jewish Congress
Honors Kaminska

NEW YORK—Ida Kaminska and
members of the Jewish State The-
ater of Poland were honored by
the American Jewish Congress and
the American section of the World
Jewish Congress at a reception
in Stephen Wise Congress House.
Miss Kaminska, star of the
troupe, respond-
ed to the expres-
sions of welcome
and greetings
voiced by D r .
Joachim Prinz,
past president of
the American
Jewish Congress
and chairman of
the World Jewish
Congress govern-
ing council; Jac-
ob Katzman, gen-
eral secretary of
the Farband Miss Haminska
Labor-Zionist Order; and Jacob
Glatstein, leading American Yid-
dish poet.
Dr. Prinz described Miss Kam-
inska as "a great actress, a great
woman and a great Jewish artist—
a vital force in the expression of
Jewish cultural aspirations."
Glatstein said that the world
Jewish community owed "a pro-
found debt of gratitude toward per-
sons like Miss Kaminska and
members of the Jewish State
Theater," whom he described as
"heroes and heroine of our people,
performers with a great mission—
the mission of keeping alive not
merely a language and a literature
but a whole tradition.
Miss Kaminska noted that the
Yiddish troupe toured abroad an-
nually and had played in South
America, Western Europe and Is-
rael in recent years. She said that
she and her fellow-players were
conscious of their role in keeping
the torch of Jewish culture alive.

Israel Unemployment Rolls
See Downward Trend

Man does not live by words
alone, despite the fact that some-
times he has to eat them.
Adlai Stevenson

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Labor
Minister Yigal Allon told Parlia-
ment that unemployment in Israel
had passed its peak, and that the
downward trend was expected to
continue. Allon, who was replying
to questions during a debate on
the employment situation, re-
ported that employment in the oc-
cupied West Bank region was no
different than it was before the
June war.
There are unemployed, however,
in the Gaza Strip and in the Sinai,
he said, where many residents had
been in the pay of the Egyptian
army and the Egyptian Labor
Ministry before the war.

UN Association Officer Quits Pro-Arab Group

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON—The director general
of the United Nations Association
in Great Britian and Northern
Ireland announced his resignation
Tuesday from a pro-Arab organi-
zation after it was pointed out to
him that his membership in such
a group "must reflect on his im-
partiality."
The announcement was made by
John Ennals in a letter to Jack
Barnett, general secretary of the
World Jewish Congress.
Barnett had originally called to
Ennals' attention that fact that the
so-called Council for he Advance-
ment of Arab-British Understand-
ing, of which Ennals was a mem-

$7

her, w a s circuating anti-Israel
propaganda pamphlets. The pro-
Arab group maintained its head-
quarters on premises rented from
the United Nations Association.
Their tenancy was terminated by

Humphry Berkley, chairman of the
UNA executive committee. In his
letter to Barnett, Ennals wrote:
"I attach very great imporance
to the support which the British
Section of the World Jewish Con-
gress has always played interna-

tionally within the United Nations "

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — During
the 19 years of Israel's existence,
the government has decreed four
devaluations of Israel's currency.
The first time was on Sept. 19,
1949, when therate of the Israeli
pound was devalued to $2.80 from
$4.02 per pound. The second offic-
ial devaluation was announced on
Feb. 13, 1952, when the rate was
reduced to one pound per one
dollar. The third time was on Feb.
9, 1962, when the rate was set
at three pounds per dollar. Under
the present fourth devaluation,
$100 will be exchanged for 350
pounds as compared with 33
pounds prior to the first devalua-
tion.
