Jewish Home for Aged
Fire-Bombed; Elderly OK

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Eight incendiary devices
were set off inside the He-
brew Home for the Aged is
nearby Rockville, Md., short-
ly before dawn April 5 but
none of the 200 residents,
averaging about age 82, was
reported injured.

Lt Charles Federline said a
recent trainee in the institu-
tion's practical nursing educa-
tion class is being sought for
questioning. Police would not
give the suspect's name.
Only 45 minutes before

said, three similar fires were
started in the laundry room
of the Home for Incurables
in Washington's Northwest
section. Polie believe the two
incidents are connected, he
said.
Alvin J. Steinberg, chair-
man of the District of Colum-

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Three
French nationals who say
they want to row their rubber
dinghy through the Suez Ca-
nal which has been closed to
traffic since June 1967, were
prevented from leaving for
Egypt from Israeli soil.
The three, who say they
are on a peace mission,
landed their dinghy near an
Israeli army outpost in nor-
thern Sinai.
They were given shelter
and brought here, but their
request for permission to
leave from Ashkelon for Port
Said was turned doWn by Is-
raeli authorities.
The trio, a journalist and
two TV cameramen, said
they would attempt to row to
Cyprus and from there to

He said, "There is a strong
indication that this was the
act of a single disgruntled
individual rather than a
group activity linked to Arab
terrorism or to any organized,
anit-Semetic group. It is es-
sential," Steinberg empha-
sized, "to disabuse any fears
arising in the community that
this incident is a cause, for
alarm."
According to Montgomery
County police, an intruder
entered the Hebrew Home—

structure dedicated May 20,
1969—after smashing a large

door leading to the lobby.

Pablo Picasso
Mourned in Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA)—Yi-
gal Ailon, Israel's deputy
premier and minister of edu-
cation and culture, cabled
condolences on the death
Sunday at 91 of artist Pablo
Picasso.
Allon's message said, "In
the name of the government,
art lovers and other Israelis,
I send my condolences on
the death of a giant of art in
our epoch, Pablo Picasso.
He was one of those artists
who never cease to create
until tlieir last clay. The
Jewish people felt a special
respect for Picasso because
of his brave and constant
struggle against fascism and
persecution."
Picasso showed an interest
in Israel and its democratic
principles.
An avowed anti-Nazi, he in-
cluded among his most ap-
preciative friends in the
early 1900s the Parisian Max
Jacob, who later died in a
Nazi concentration camp.
Picasso also befriended the
artists Leo Stein and Jacques
Lipschitz, among others.

Air Crash Probe
Gets Israel Aid

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Trans-
port ministry officials said
that they would cooperate
fully with a delegation of the
International Civil Aviation
Organization (ICAO) which
arrived here to investigate
the downing of a Libyan air-
liner by Israeli fighters over
Sinai Feb. 21.
The group has visited Libya
and Egypt in the course of
their investigation of the tra-
gedy.
The investigation was au-
thorized at a recent ICAO
conference which condemned
Israel for downing the civil-
ian airliner in which over
100 lives were lost.
The investigating team will
study tape recordings taken
from the wreckage of the
plane and is expected to in-
terview the surviving Libyan
co-pilot who is convalescing,
at Hadassah Hospital in Je-
rusalem. A similar investiga-
tion was conducted last
month by a team of French
experts.
The pilot and several crew
members of the Boeing 727,
all of whom died, were
French.
