ATHENS (JTA) — Swasti-
kas and anti-Semitic slogans
saying "Jewish Pigs Out of
Greece" were painted on the
Athens Synagogue for the
second time in six weeks.
Although the Central Coun-
cil for Jewish Communities
has lodged numerous pro-
tests, police have not issued
an official statement.
The security police, how-
ever, said they are investi-
gating the incident.

Opal Tanner White, the
only other name on the
letter and listed as secretary
of the CCC, is a long-time
top associate of Smith, the
ADL counsel said.
Smith's "The Cross and
the Flag," has reported that
the CCC's "activities are
planned and executed by
Gerald L. K. Smith, director
of the (Christian Nationalist)
Crusade," the ADL said.
The address listed on the
Citizens Congressional Com-
mittee's letter is a Los An-
geles post office box number.

undertaking, launched more
than 70 years ago, has been
completed in the form of

project provides scholars

of Hebrew manuscripts has
been recognized for more
than a century.
The task was begun about
1900 by Prof. Aron Frei-

NEW YORK — A front
organization for anti-Semite
Gerald L. K. Smith has de-
luged congressmen and sena-
tors with a letter aimed at
irritating the friendly rela-
tions between this country
and Israel, the Anti-Defama-
tion League of Bnai Brith
According to Arnold For-
ster, ADL's general counsel,
the "innocent-sounding letter
is a covert means of aiding
the Arab propaganda offen-
sive in the United States."
The group, Citizens Con-
gressional Committee, first
organized by Smith in 1953,
asks in its letter whether the
crisis in the Middle East
could lead to this country's
involvement in a "Third
World War." Declaring it is
"very much concerned over
developments in the Middle
East," the group asks the
legislators to respond with
their comments.
Forster said Smith is ex-
pected to use the responses
for his own anti-Semitic and
anti-Israel ends.
He pointed out there is no
indication from the letter
itself that the Citizens Con-
gressional Committee is a
front for Smith or that its
chairman, Roland L. Mor-
gan, who signed the letter, is
a nephew of Smith.
