THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Austria Moves Transit Camp

(Continued from Page 1)
tages by Arab terrorists. He
said the risk was too big for
Austria to permit the Jewish
Agency to run the Schoenau
Camp.
World-wide protests were
the result.
Then, the Austrian govern-
ment installed the Wollers-
dorf transit camp, but Krei-
sky said the site of the camp
would be changed from time
to time to avoid unnecessary
security risks.
Interior Minister Ott o
Roesch admitted Wednesday
he received protests of peo-
ple living near the new camp
because they feared Arab
terrorist actions.
"Such a risk does hardly

exist," Roesch said. "We
have to fulfill a humanitarian
task."
Some critics said it was a
risk to establish the transit
camp in a densely populated
city area.
The right-wing Freedom
Party is planning protest ac-
tions demanding to transfer
the camp to another area.
Roesch said: "Everybody
must understand that it is
our duty to help other peo-
ple."
Without giving exact fig-
ures, government officials
said Wollersdorf Camp had
hosted several thousand So-
viet Jews in the eight months
of its existence.

Jews Send Letter of Condolence to Envoy Davies' Family

WASHINGTON (JTA)—The
Greater Washington Jewish
Community Council's presi-
dent, Judge William C. Levy,
has sent a letter of condo-
lence on behalf of the Wash-
ington Jewish community to
the family of the slain Amer-
ican Ambassador in Cyprus,

Rodger Paul Davies.
The letter declared that the
Jewish community knows
"too well and too often the
tragedy of terrorism." Just
two summers ago 11 Israelis
were massacred in Munich.
Rodger Davies, then deputy
assistant secretary of state,

was among those who eulo-
gized their deaths; and called
out for an end to terrorism.
Levy also said that it was
ironic that a "similar trage-
dy perpetrated by men of
similar contempt for human
life snuff e d out Rodger
Davies' life."

El Al Mechanics End Slowdown;
Normal Flight Schedules Resume

TEL AVIV (JTA)—El Al
mechanics ended their work
slowdown Monday as a con-
dition for a meeting they re-
quested with Transport Min-
ister Gad Yaacobi who cut
short a trip to England and
returned home to deal with
the airline's worsening labor
dispute.
El Al resumed normal
flight schedules Monday eve-
ning, relieving a backlog of
some 2,000 stranded pas-
sengers at Ben-Gurion Air-
port.
El Al was grounded 7,by a
work stoppage earlier Mon-
day after the five-member
mechanics union committee
was summoned to police
headquarters to answer
charges that they had dis-
obeyed last • week's court
order to the mechanics to
resume normal work.

The union representatives
were released on IL 1,500
bail each, but outrage over
the police intervention threat-
ened for a time to precipi-
tate a general strike of all
El Al employes.
Various workers commit-
tees met during the after-
noon to consider retaliatory
action but dropped their
threat, for the time being at
least, when the mechanics
said they were ready to
meet with Yacobi to discuss
a settlement.
The government stepped
into the El Al dispute with a
cabinet call to the 450 El Al
mechanics to end Their rule-
book slowdown which pre-
vented the airline from ad
hering to its published flight
schedules.
The cabinet agreed to allow
El Al to charter foreign air-
craft to replace its grounded
fleet and Labor Minister
Moshe Baram said the gov-
ernment w .a s considering
shutting down El Al and es-
tablishing a new national air
carrier as a last resort.
The airline which ended
last year with a marginal
profit says it has suffered
severe losses from the work
slow-down and a 24-hour
strike by mechanics and
maintenance men that pre-
ceded it.
El Al has had to pay hotel
expenses for thousands of
stranded passengers and
must reimburse foreign air-
lines for its passengers di-
verted to them. The me-
chanics claimed that a man-
power shortage, not their
slow down, was responsible
for the delays and accused
the El Al management of
misleading the public.
