Cowan Killings Bring Attention EEC Unreceptive to Arab Call
to Sale of Nazi Paraphernalia for Palestinian Voice in Geneva

Foreign Visitors,

JERUSALEM (ZINS)
The 795,000 tourists
who visited Israel in 1976
generated $280 million in
foreign currency, twice
the value of Israel's

ports.

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The shooting rampage by
Nazi-enthusiast Fred-
erick W. Cowan in New
Rochelle Monday has
focused attention on a
booming business — the
sale of Nazi memorabilia.
Cowan, a moving van
company employe who
shot five persons to death
before taking his own life,
had a large collection of
Nazi helmets, badges,
medals, swastika arm
bands and daggers in ad-
dition to an arsenal of
deadly weapons in his at-
tic: He also had photo-
graphs of Hitler, Him-
mler and other Nazis and
a collection of racist liter-
ature and recordings.
But dealers in the
multi-million dollar Nazi
artifacts market insist
that the vast majority of
their customers are not
"Nazi kooks." They say
that the purchasers of
these items- range from
pre-adolescent boys to
military historians and
other scholars of the Nazi
era. Many are legitimate
collectors.

Unique Imports, of
Alexandria, N, a., run by
Roderick Jones, a retired
air force man. He assured
reporters this week that
Cowan was not on his
world-wide mailing list of
some 55,000 names.

Many of the items sold
by Unique and by scores
of other dealers around
the country, were
brought here by World
War II GIs. Others are
"authentic" replicas of
Nazi items and weapons.
According. to reports
there is also a large busi-
ness in Nazi porno books
— paperbacks offering
explicit descriptions of
rape and other sexual as-
saults on concentration
camp inmates, most of
them Jewish. One pub-
lisher dedicates his books
"to the memory" of con-
centration camp victims.
Meanwhile, police are
tracing a possible link be-
tween Cowan and the
militant, racist National
States Rights Party. He
reportedly carried a
membership card -in that
organization and re-
ceived its publication,
"Thunderbolt."
After the carnage in
New Rochelle, neighbors
of Cowan told reporters
that - the killer was
forever ranting against
Jews and Blacks and
threatening to "liquid-
ate" them. His bloodbath
was apparently triggered
by a desire to kill his boss,
Norman Bing, who is
Jewish. Bing had sus-
pended Cowan for rude-
ness to a customer. He
was not one of the vic-
tims.

"A painting in a museum
probably hears more foolish
remarks than anything else
in the world."

LONDON (JTA) —
Richard Faber, assistant
undersecretary at the
Foreign and Common-
wealth Office, will lead
the European team at the
European Economic
Community (EEC) —
Arab dialogue committee
meeting in Tunis.
The EEC will not wel-
come Arab calls that it
should speak out on the
need for convening the
Geneva conference and
for a Palestinian pre-
sence there.
It will try to emphasize
the commercial and coop-
eration aspects of Euro-
Arab relations. If a politi-
cal statement proves un-
avoidable, the European
diplomats - will be guided
by the- November 1973

of the EEC and by last

Dutch UN delegation.

What's a Wicker Works? It's a restaurant that
serves fine foods, cocktails and wines with a
casually elegant touch, in a comfortable setting
of an abundance of interior plantings, natural 4 0
wicker and solid oak. Two open hearth fire-
places for warmth and charm. A salad bar with
an endless array of fixin's and where seconds
(and thirds) are not frowned upon.

THAT'S a Wicker Works.
