camp in which Jews were
among those who perished.
An appeal to submit such
evidence and eye-witness ac-
counts to the Central Com-
mittee of the Union of Anti-
Fascist Fighters was broad-
cast by Hvezda radio from
Prague recently.
Evidence is sought on 2,000
Nazi prisoners from the Bu-
chenwald camp who were
taken by train from Cheb .
(Eger) in Northern 'Bohemia
to Tachov (Tachau) on April
13, 1945.
About 500 of the prisoners
were dead on arrival and
their cremation at the Jew-
ish cemetery of Tachov last-
ed several days. The remain-
ing 1,500 prisoners continued
their journey on foot.
Nothing is known of their
fate since they left Tachov.

warning that an economic re-
cession might hamper the
absorption of new immi-
grants and therefore dis-
courage immigration was
voiced by Haifa Mayor Jo-
seph Almogi.
Speaking at the Haifa Mari-
time and Economic Club,
Almogi warned that the gov-
ernment must prevent an
economic recession in view
of • the increased immigra-
tion anticipated from the So-
viet Union.
Almogi, former minister of
Labor, said he is optimistic
about increased Soviet .aliya
because of the compromise
reportedly reached between
President Ford and Sen.
Henry M. Jackson (D.,
Wash.) and other key sena-
tors on the Jackson amend-
"If Russia receives the
`most favored nation status,'
a 'larger and steadier stream
of immigrants from that
country could be expected,"
Almogi said. "A recession at
this time would seriously
hamper the absorption of
these immigrants."
But Labor Minister Moshe
Baram, interviewed on Israel
Radio, said there was no
foundation for the fears of a
recession because of the re-
cent cuts in government
building. He said while the
construction of public build-
ings is being curtailed, there
will be no let-up on construc-
tion of apartments for immi-
grants and young couples and
in slum-clearing programs.

athon and Tully in the Syra-

native of Baden-Baden, Ger-
many. He fled from the Nazis-
and came to England in 1938
and finally came to this
country where he continued
a newspaper career begun
with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency and the Reuters
News Agency in Britain.
Grunfeld, whose father was
a cantor in Baden-Baden,

The founding committee

will try to bridge the gaps
between the Hebrew and
Arab writers and between
writers and the public.
He said he hoped that
someday the new group
would replace the Hebrew
Writers Union. Shams, an
Arab poet, said that if the
new union succeeded in
breaking the division be-
tween J ewish and Arab
writers it would be a great
However, Hebrew Writers
Union supporters said the
new group comprises writers
who are anti-establishment
and are concerned more with
politics than literature. They
said the Jewish writers in
the new groups are leftists
who claim to know better
what the Arab writers need
than do the Arab writers.
They said it had been
agreed that. Arab writers
would join the existing
