Boston Paper Suggests Diplomat
From Egypt Murdered Charles JOrdan

(Direct JTA letype Who
to The Jewish News)

BOSTON — A report that an
Egyption diplomat murdered
Charles Jordan, the executive vice
chairman of the Joint Distribution
Committee who was found dead
Under mysterious circumstances in
Prague last summer, appeared
Monday in the Boston Globe.
The report was attributed by
the Globe's United Nations corres
pondent, Darius S. Jhabvala, to the
Czech language magazine "Svedec-
ti" published in Paris. The maga-
zine, according to Jhabvala, cited,
as the source of its information,
Vladimir Koucky, secretary of the
Central Committee of the Czech
Communist Party. "Mr. Koucky
held a secret meeting with the
Czech editors and told them that
Jordan was dispatched from this
world," Jhabvala wrote. "While he
did not expressly state the nation-
ality of the murderers, he is be-
lieved to have privately indicated
that the man was of the UAR dip-
lomatic mission and enjoyed dip-
lomatic immunity.
Jhabvala described Svedecti as
"a reputable Czech magazine
highly regarded by Czech na-
tionals in the country and
abroad" and said that "Czech
nationals at the UN who are
aware of the magazine and its
contents believe the report to be
true." They pointed out, Jhab-
vala said, "that its publisher,
Paul Tigrid, has influential con-
tacts within the government and
with Czech intellectuals."

his government has not had any
interest in deteriorating its rela-
tions with Israel, and the case has
subsequently harmed our country."
(A spokesman for the joint Dis-
tribution Committee in New York
told the JTA Tuesday that a report
similar to the one cited by Jhab-
vala appeared in London newspa-
pers in January.

Edmund de 'ROthschild May Balk Plans to Aid BUildng of 'Eilat-Haifa Pipeline

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—Sources re-
veal that the romance between
Edmund de Rothschild of Paris,
and Israel, is in a deep freeze.
Cause of the crisis is Rothschild's
refusal to participate in the gov-
ernment plan to construct a new
oil pipeline from Eilat to the port
of Haifa.
Completion of the project would
reduce the importance of the Suez
Canal, and the supply of oil to
Europe would flow through Israel.

Chief' Rabbinate Seeks Control of West Wall

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Chief
Rabbi I. Nissim asked a special
ministerial committee to place the
entire area around the West Wall
in East Jerusalem under the sole
jurisdiction of the chief rabbinate
and demanded that archaeological
work near the site be halted.
The chief rabbi made his de-
mands during a walking tour of the
area by the committee which is
headed by Defense Minister Moshe
Dayan. Mayor Teddy Kollek, of
Jerusalem also was present. The
committee was appointed by the
prime minister to investigate the
status of holy places in the Old

City and make recommendations.
It was set up after the chief rab-
binate complained that archaeologi-
cal excavations near the site of the
Temple's south wall might invade
the "holy of holies." The excava-
tions are being carried out by a
team headed by Prof. Benjamin
Mazar, former president of the
Hebrew University and one of Is-
rael's most distinguished archeolo-
gists. He is working under a license
granted by the ministry of educa-
tion. He had assured the chief rab-
binate that the digging would be
outside the wall and not in the
Temple Mount area.

Experts estimate that the job
would cost about $70,000,000, and
eventually would pay for itself. It
would also have great political
value.
Rothschild, who owns the pres-
ent small pipeline connecting Eilat
with Ashod, has declined to be a
co-sponsor of the enterprise, fear-
ing possible financial loss, and
not being certain whether the oil
companies will want to use the
Israeli facilities.
The same sources note that
Rothschild has not only dissociated
himself from the government-
planned project, but is also ob-
structing it.
Informed sources disclosed
that after Baron Rothschild re-
fused to participate in transform-
ing Ellat into an international
center of commerce by build-
ing a pipeline from Ashod to
Eilat, Israel began to look around
for new partners.

A high government statesman
visiting New York, reportedly ap-
proached a large American bank.
Its president, David Rockefeller,
telephoned Baron Rothschild to
find out if he was a co-signer of
the project.

it.

The Baron categorically denied

It became known that if Israel
decides to go ahead with it, the
government would buy out the
Rothschild-owned pipeline and
would be obliged to pay him mil-

lions of dollars to cover the earn-
ings which would have accrued

during the coming 15 years, the
time of the unexpired contract.

TRAVEL TAX DEAD

Chairman Mills of the House Ways and Means Committee will inform the President that he is unable to
put together a tax bill on foreign travel, strong enough to get it out of commiffee. In effect, this means:

Charles Jordan, who was visiting
Prague with his wife, left their
hotel on the evening of Aug. 16 to
buy a newspaper and failed to re-
turn. His body was found by police
several days later in the Vitava
River. According to Jhabvala,
"Koucky claimed that it was not
