Trifa Ordered to Stand Trial

Federal Appeals Court
Judge Cornelia Kennedy
has dismissed several de-
fense motions and ordered
the U.S. government's citi-
zenship case against Roma-
nian Archbishop Valerian
Trifa to trial.

Invite to Terzi
by Indiana. U.
Is Protested

(JTA) — The Fort Wayne
Jewish Federation has pro-
tested to Indiana Univer-
sity against an invitation
extended to the Palestine
Liberation Organization
representative at the
United Nations, Zehdi
Labib Terzi, to speak there
on Nov. 27.
In letters addressed to Dr.
John Ryan, university
president, and Dr. Robert
O'Neil, vice president, Fed-
eration officials said the de-
cision by the university's
Memorial Union Board to
invite Terzi "is quite dis-
turbing 'to the Fort Wayne
Jewish community."
The letters stated that
Terzi "is hardly the type
of person one would ex-
pect to receive an invita-
tion from a public institu-
tion. His presence,
whether officially
sanctioned or not, places
Indiana University in an
unenviable limelight of
national prominence.
The situation is fraught
with risk and wrapped
with emotion. The result,
we fear, would not bene-
fit a discussion of the real
issues but further the
hatred and venom his
organization sym-
The federation urged the
university officials to con-
sider the ramifications of
the Union Board's action
and bring a sense of reason
to those who have thus far
demonstrated none."

year-old case as a Federal
district judge in Detroit,

to dismiss the case which
were based on the claim
that the U.S. had the evi-
dence more than 20 years
ago which was now being
used against Trifa.
The judge ruled that
there were statements to
the contrary in the gov-
ernment's files and ex-
planations by Trifa
which the government
claims are false.
