The 1980 conference was
dropped because delegates
representing the Palestine
Liberation Organization,
which has observer status
at the UN, would have been
eligible to attend.
The Australian govern-
ment followed the precedent
set by Canada's former
Prime Minister Pierre El-
liott Trudeau, who cancel-
led the Fifth UN Congress
on the Prevention of Crime
in September 1975, because
the PLO would have
attended.

ing
the
invitation,
sources close to the prime
minister have confirmed
the details.
The president of the
Executive Council of Au-
stralian Jewry, Isi Leibler,
said Canberra's decision
had upheld the highest
ideals of international rela-
tions and was in the best
interests of Australia.
"There was something
particularly bizarre and
hypocritical in the idea of
the PLO at an international
conference on the preven-
tion of crime." Leibler said
the overwhelming majority
of the Australian public
quite rightly regarded the
PLO as "synonymous with
crime and terrorism against
civilians."
The government's deci-
sion, however, was
criticized by a number of
leading criminologists who
said that Australia had for-
feited the opportunity to
stage a prestigious confer-
ence bringing jurists, police
and criminologists to-
gether. Surprisingly, the
government's action has
received very little media
coverage and there has been
almost no editorial corn-
ment in the Australian
press.
The Fraser govern-
ment, which took office in
December 1975, has con-
sistently refused to allow
any representatives of
the. PLO to visit Australia
-and has emphasized on a
number of occasions its
refusal to recognize the
PLO in any way until that
organization first recog-
nizes Israel and aban-
dons its war of terror.
Meanwhile, the Palestine
Liberation Organization is
seeking observer status in
the World Bank and the In-
ternational Monetary
Fund. IMF officials in
Washington said that the
PLO request is being given
"normal consideration."
In another development,
an Israeli patrol killed three
Arab terrorists Sunday, ap-
parently on a mission to
seize hostages in Israel.
A military spokesman
said the terrorists were well
armed and carried explo-
sives, ropes and other_
equipment indicating that
they intended- to capture
hostages and commit acts of
violence. There were no Is- -
raeli casualties.
In Jerusalem, a united
front of democratic gov-
ernments to combat
global terrorism was
urged in a statement
adopted at the closing
session of a four-day con-
ference on international
terrorism in Israel last
week. It was attended by
leading public figures
from. Israel, the United
States and other coun-
tries.
One of the participants
was Sen. Henry M. Jackson
(D-Wash.).
The conference was spon-
sored by the Jonathan Insti-
tute, created in memory of
Lt. Col. Yonatan
Netanyahu who com-
manded the Israeli- force

that rescued 100 Air France
hijack hostages at Entebbe
Airport, Uganda, on July
3-4, 1976, and was killed in
that operation.
One theme sounded by
many of the participants
was that the Soviet Union is
the motivating force and in-
stigator of many world-wide
terrorist movements.
That charge was leveled
at the opening session by a
British defense writer,
Brian Crozier, who said the
Soviets were behind the
Portuguese Communist
Party's activities on behalf
of various African guerrilla
movements, and by Robert
Moss, of the Economist, who
claimed that the Kremlin
was deeply involved in
every stage of the Iranian
revolution and was now
helping the Sandinista re-
bels in Nicaragua and stir-
ring trouble in Turkey.
Most of the partici-
pants attacked the mass
media as being in indirect
collusion with terrorism
and one observed that
"The free press cannot be
neutral or objective."
Although an aura of polit-
ical conservatism prevailed
at the conference, there was
some lively dissent from
statements such as one that
"To understand terrorism
you must understand that it
is part of a 60-year com-
mitment on the part of the
Soviet leadership, which as
far back as – 1919
documented the guidelines
for world-wide revolution-
ary terrorism."
The conference called for
a unanimous condemnation
of terrorism by all leading
democratic nations, the
enforcement of an interna-
tional convention against
terrorism which would deny
political status to terrorists
and permit implementation
of diplomatic and economic
sanctions against states
that aided in terrorist ac-
tivities. The statement
called for legislation by the

democracies to enforce The
Hague, Tokyo and Montreal
conventions dealing with
aerial piracy.
During the course of
the conference, many of
the delegates attended
graveside ceremonies
memorializing Netan-
yahu on the third an-
niversary of his death.
Premier Menahem Begin,
Labor Party opposition
leader Shimon Peres, and
Knesset Speaker Yitzhak
Shamir were also pre-
sent, as was Jackson.

The senator, who received
an honorary degree from
the Hebrew University last
Monday, had earlier de-
nounced the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization.

Brandeis 'Castle
Labeled Historic

WALTHAM, Mass. --
Brandeis University's "Cas-
tle," a landmark with a
bold, medieval facade in
contrast to the campus' con-
temporary architecture, has
been designated "an his-
toric place" by the U.S. De-
partment of Interior and the
Massachusetts Historical
Commission.
The Castle has been listed
in the National Register of
Historic Places.
The Register is the offi-
cial list of the nation's cul-
tural resources worthy of
preservation and includes
places significant in Ameri-
can history, architecture,
archeology and culture.
The Castle is an imposing
Norman Gothic structure,
one of only two original
buildings remaining from
the Middlesex Medical Col-
lege campus which formerly
occupied the site of Bran-
deis University.

Let the drunkard alone,
