Dr. Nathan Rotenstreich, Israel
also has no hippies because "the

Rotenstreich, who was a speaker
at the closing session of the con-

The problem of assimilation

One speaker said it was prefer-
able to send young people to Is-
rael for periods of time rather
than bringing over Israel shlihim

able to communicate with Jew-

emerge, they said, is a "consensus"
statement calling on both parties

the Jarring mission.

The issue before the Se-
curity Council was Israel's
charge that Egypt was re-
sponsible for the ambush killing
of two soldiers and the kidnapping
of a third on Aug. 26. As in the
previous sessions, Ambassador Mo-
hammed Awad El-Kony of Egypt
claimed that the Israeli complaint
of_ the Aug. 26 ambush was a "fa-
brication" of which Egypt knew
nothing. He was supported, as pre-

that would abolish the statute of
limitations on Nazi war crimes
which is due to go into effect at
the end of 1969. At the parley on
United Nations Human Rights
Year, Dr. Heinemann said it would
be impossible to complete investi-
gations .in all outstanding cases
before the deadline. The statute
covers Nazis charged with mur-
der and genocide. A statute of lim-
itations already in effect bars
prosecution for lesser crimes. Dr.
Heinemann said that if his bill
is passed by the Bundestag, the
lower house, and the statute abol-
ished, criminal trials would con-
tinue well into the 1970s.
Eight prosecutors from the Lud-
wigsburg Central Office for Nazi
War Crimes Prosecution went to
Moscow Monday to inspect docu-
ments relating to Nazi war crimi-
nals. The development was con-
sidered significant here since the
Soviets have given. German state
prosecutors little cooperation in
the past: it was believed to be
the result of a meeting two months
ago between Soviet Ambassador
Semyon Tsarapkin and West Ger-
man Chancellor Kurt Georg Kie-
singer, who reportedly complained
of the lack of Soviet assistance in
war crimes prosecutions.

U. of Minnesota Fall Term
Opens on Holy Days;
Jewish Students Excused
ish students at the University
of Minnesota were reminded to
notify instructors and departinent
offices in advance that they will
not attend classes on Rosh Ha-
shana Monday and Tuesday, which
are the opening days of the fall
term at the university.
The Minnesota Rabbinical Asso-
ciation thanked the university
authorities and the campus Hillel
Foundation for making arrange-
ments to excuse Jewish students
from classes. But, they said, it
was now up to the 1,800 Jewish
students to take advantage of the
arrangements by giving the neces-
sary notification.

Israel's chief representative
Ambassador Yosef Tekoah, urged
the Council not to delay con-
demning the Egyptian attack and
to call on Egypt to prevent such
action in the future. He asked
the Council to ascertain the fate
of the kidnapped Israeli soldier.
Tekoah introduced as further
evidence of Egyptian responsi-
bility for the assault, the state-
ment by an Egyptian soldier who
deserted Sept. 7. The sol-
dier told his Israeli interrogators
that all Egyptian units knew of
the raid and that two Israeli sol-
diers had been killed and one
kidnapped. The deserter said
further that he had heard that
the kidnapped soldier died in a
hospital. Yaakov Malik, the chief
Soviet representative, denounced
the soldier's report as "evidence
from a traitor." Tekoah said in
reply that it was not the source
of the evidence that mattered but
its truth and applicability.

the Security Council, agreed that
there was no doubt that the ambush
had taken place and urged new
ways to strengthen the cease-fire
machinery in the Suez Canal area.
He noted that, as early as Octo-
ber 1967, the use of UN patrol

Malik complained that so far
the only mention had been of Is-
raeli casualties. He said that ac-
cording to press reports, huge

casualties and damage to property
had been suffered by Egypt in the

Josef Tardos of Hungary, who
said that the events of Sept. 8
justified the misgivings about Is-
