LONDON (JTA) — The leader
of the British Nazi party, Cohn
Jordan, who emerged unrepentant
from prison last week where he
had served an 18-month term for
offenses under the race relations
act, informed the press that he
intended to launch a new national
socialist party "on a broader basis
than so far." Jordan, who said
that imprisonment had failed to
alter his view s, thought that
changes which had taken place
while he was jailed, particularly
in the area of race relations,
augured well for the establishment
of a new racist party.
As Jordan came out of prison.
his French-born former wife, Mrs.
Francoise Jordan, was starting to
serve an 18-month sentence follow-
, ing her conviction for conspiring to
burn synagogues.

Dr. Gerald M. Friedman, geologist at Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute in Troy, N.Y.. displays a core sample taken from bottom
of the ocean about a mile from the Greenland site where the B52
bomber crashed with its hydrogen bombs. He was head of a re-
search project for study of the ocean bottom in the area. He said
the bottom at the crash site is covered with a layer of stones and•
pebbles, which show above his right hand, that would prevent the
bombs from being buried in the mud which shows below. He said
recovery would be extremely difficult now, but would be no prob-
lem in summer.

JERUSALEM — Restoration is
under way on the Habad (Luba-
vitch) Synagogue in the Old City
of Jerusalem.
The shul was founded more than
100 years ago by Rabbi Menachem.
Mendel of Lubavitch, known as the
"Tzemakh Tzedek," the third lead-
er of the Habad-Lubavitch move-
ment.
1 Rabbi Mendel was the great
grandfather of the present Luba-
' vitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem
M. Schneerson.
' After the recent liberation of the
Old City, the Tzemakh Tzedek's
shul was found to be the only one
not destroyed, although its inter-
ior was found to be in complete
ruin.
Under instructions from the
rebbe, the shul was used for
prayer immediately, in the condi-
' tion in which it was found.
