Ceremony at Federation Apartments

Coroner's Inquest Rejects Foiled Hijacker's Charge

LONDON (JTA)—Laila Khaled,
the would-be hijacker of an El Al
jet last Sept. 6, claimed in Beirut
that her companion was murdered
by El Al security guards who al-
legedly shot him in the back after
he had beep disarmed and bound.
A coroner's inquest held here
after the incident failed to bear out
her accusation. The jury returned
a verdict of lawful homicide, a ver-
dict that includes reasonable self-
defense of person or property
against attack.
Miss Khaled, who was set free
by British authorities two weeks

UN General Assembly Committee
Starts Air Hijacking Talks

General Assembly's Sixth (Legal)
Committee last week launched a
discussion of "Aerial Hijacking or
Interference With Civil Air Tra-
vel," heard two speakers and ad-
journed until an unspecified date.
Carlos P. Romulo, foreign min-
ister of the Philippines, said that
last year's assembly resolution on
hijacking which granted nations
legal measures to combat that
crime, had "thus far failed to
achieve its meritorious aims,"
with the incidence of hijacking
greater now than then.
_ Gen. Romulo referred tOs'a re-

port by the International Civil
Aviation Organization (ICAO)
indicating that from Jan. 1, 1969,
to last July 1, there were 18 inci-
dents of skyjacking and 14 inci-
dents of airline sabotage and
armed attacks involving 7,000
passengers and the aircraft of
87 countries. Such incidents have
risen sharply since July 1, he
noted, recommending that the
assembly deal with the problem
"in much the same way as it has
,expressed itself on flagrant vio-
lations of human rights."
It was the Philippines, her for-
eign minister emphasized, that had
placed the hijacking item on the
committee's agenda. Gen. Romulo,
a former assembly president and

former ambassador to the United
States, said the item had been in-
scribed "primarily for humani-
tarian reasons, without any politi-
cal or ideological motivation."

Officers and board members of Federation Apartments, Inc.,
under construction on 10 Mile Road and Greenfield, joined with
Oak Park Mayor Joseph Forbes in a "topping-out" ceremony cele-
brating the first major stage in construction since ground-breaking.
"Topping-out" occurs when a building reaches the final height it
will be when completed. Participating were, from left, Samuel Hecht-
man, vice president of Federation Apartments and chairman of its
building committee; Mayor Joseph W. Forbes; Joseph 11. Jackier,
president of Federation Apartments; Sol King, board member; Rich-
ard Adair, supervising architect from the firms of Levine and Alpern
Associates; Zelden S. Cohen, administrator of the apartments; and
Gilbert H. Silverman, board member. Jackier spoke briefly on the
service to the community this apartment will render in housing the
elderly. Mayor Forbes congratulated the Jewish Welfare Federation
of Detroit for sponsoring the project. Completion of the facilities is
scheduled for early summer 1971. The photo below shows the apart-
ment near completion.
