Beyond the question of the sale,
the case carries the much larger
question of Israeli-Vatican rela-
tions. Israel would probably pre-
fer to avoid a quarrel even if she
felt it was justified. The Vatican,
represented by Tel Aviv lawyer
Abraham Suchovolsky, claims the
sale was invalid because the As-
sumptionists acted without the Vat-
ican's necessary consent and be-
cause the sale registration was
done outside of Israel. District
Court Judge Yehuda Cohen gave
the Vatican until Dec. 25 to sub-
mit proof of its contentions, with
approval of the sale held in abey-
ance.
A JNF spokesman told the

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The Vati-

here against the Himanuta Cor-
poration, a subsidiary of the Jew-
ish National Fund, freezing the
sale of the Notre Dame de Sion
convent to Himanuta by the As-
sumptionists, a Catholic order.
The convent, situated in a stra-
tegically and economically imper
tant location just across from the
Old City Wall, had been sold to
`Himanuta on Oct. 23, for use by
the Hebrew University, for $800,000.
The negotiations and the contract
signing were conducted secretly in
New York out of fear that a pre-
mature leak might arouse Vatican
protests. The registration of the
sale also was done in New York
by an Israeli Land Registry offi
cial flown there for that purpose.

Stone and Levine Honored for Services to Israel

NEW YORK (JTA)—A thou-
sand Jewish political, communal,
scientific and intellectual leaders
from the U.S., Israel and Europe
on Dec. 16 paid tribute to Dewey
D. Stone and Harry Levine for
their historic services to the crea-
tion and development of the state
of Israel and the Weizmann Insti-
tute of Science. A dinner held un-
der the auspices of the American
Committee for the Weizmann In-
stitute of Science marked the 70th
birthday of Stone, who has served
as chairman of the board of gov-
ernors of the institute since its
founding in 1944, and the 75th
birthday of Levine, a founding
governor of the institute and treas-
urer of its American Committee
since it was chartered in New York
in 1944.

In another tribute Meyer W.
Weisgal, chancellor of the insti-
tute, said, "Together with their
wives they formed what for years,
has been almost a self-contained
unit, powered by remarkable dedi-
cation and devotion to the cause of
the Jewish people, of the state of
Israel, and of the Weizmann Insti-
tute." Greetings were received
from Israel from President Zalman
Shazar, Premier Golda Meir, Da-
vid Ben Gurion, and Defense Min-
ister Moshe Dayan. Shazar re-
called the unbroken splendor "of
Stone's and Levine's service to
Israel decade after decade." Mrs.
Meir stated that "In their very
persons and by their steadfast de-
votion and imaginative generosity,
they have come to symbolize the
link between us and the great

main theme of Israeli life today is
the preoccupation with the problem
of peace . . . We seek peace not
only because of revulsion against
the futility of war, but also be-
cause peace is an autonomous
value in itself." In their response,
Stone and Levine pledged them-
selves to continued service to Israel
and the Weizmann Institute. They
noted that once there is peace

"know-how" of the institute's

institute. The awards were pre-
sented "in recognition of uncom-

HISTADRUT: the People Who Milk laseel

—Est. 1920

Nazi war criminal who was at
large for more than 20 years after
Germany's surrender in 1945.
Stangl managed to evade Allied
authorities at the time and found
haven in South America under
an assumed identity. He was track-
ed down in large measure through
the efforts of Simon Weisenthal,
director of the War Crimes.Doeu-
mentation Center in Vienna, who
has devoted his career to hunting
wanted Nazis. Weisenthal was in
the courtroom Tuesday.

Stangi was arrested in Brazil
in March 1967 and subsequently
extradited to West Germany. His
trial was a prolonged one which
heard tbstimeny from many eye
witnesses, including Treblinka
survivors.

It was interrupted at one point
when Stangl became ill. The jury
which found Stangl guilty said it
believed he had done everything
in his nower to keep the Treblinka
death machine in action.
Summing up the case, Judge
Meven said that while it could
not be proven that Stangl per-
sonally killed a single Jew, it was
clear that he participated directly
in the deaths of 400,000 camp
Inmates.
Stangl remained silent after
sentence was pronounced. When
the trial adjourned last week how-
ever, he appealed to the court for
"understanding" that whatever he
did was "under orders."
