Carter-Ford M.E. Peace Meeting

JIMMY CARTER

GERALD FORD

WASHINGTON

Newsweek magazine re-
ported this week that
former U.S. Presidents
Jimmy Carter and Gerald
Ford will sponsor a Middle
East peace conference at
Emory University in At-
lanta Nov. 6.
Invitations are expected
to be mailed this week to
leaders of Israel, Egypt,
Syria and the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Newsweek said the "con-
cerned parties would not
necessarily confer with each
other."

The magazine said that
Prime Minister Menahem
Begin of Israel is "certain
not to attend." Newsweek
said Begin is angry at Car-
ter's criticism of Israel's
West Bank policies and has
declined to meet with Car-
ter when Begin visits the
U.S. in late July.
Begin aides say the prime
minister's schedule is too
busy to work in a visit with
Carter, but Newsweek says
the schedule is not as busy
as during previous visits
when Begin met with Car-
ter.

'De-Nazification' Process
Sets Off Political Battle

BONN (JTA) — Demands
for the resignation of a
prominent radio executive
because of his Nazi past has
touched off a political battle
between the opposition So-
cial Democratic Party
(SPD) and the ruling Chris-
tian Democratic Union
(CDU).
Richard Becker, 57, direc-
tor general of Deutschland-
funk (DLF) a major West.
German radio station, ad-
mits that he joined the Waf-
fen SS as a teen-ager, but
has rejected calls for his res-
ignation because of "the
political perplexity of a 17
or 18-year-old man." Becker
is a Member of the SPD and
a longtime trade union ac-
tivist.
But only two weeks ago,
Theo Loch, a member of the
CDU, was forced to resign
as director of WDR televi-
sion in Cologne because of
his past membership in the
Waffen SS.
Former Chancellor
Willy Brandt, leader of
the SPD, spoke out, ap-
parently in support of
Becker. He issued a
statement attacking at-
tempts to start a "new
de-Nazification" process
like the one introduced
by the occupying powers
after World War II. He
condemned "the practice
of choosing at random
people who are playing a
role in public life" and
disqualifying them for
their former membership
in Nazi organizations.
Brandt recalled that the

SPD had decided as early as
its 1946 convention that
young persons "seduced by
Nazi propaganda" were not
responsible for Nazi crimes
unless they were personally
involved in them.
Becker said that at age 17
he was taken in by the slo-
gans of the Waffen SS and
volunteered. But, he added,
"I have totally broken with
my youthful mischief and
did not make known my
membership in the Waffen
SS" when he was appointed
to head the DLF.
CDU Bundestag member
Willi Weisskirch com-
plained that while his
party's activists, such as
Loch, are being removed
from their jobs because of
past membership in Nazi
organizations, SPD suppor-
ters have been excused. He
accused the SPD of opening
a campaign against CDU
members who once be-
longed to Nazi formations.
Becker, in his remarks,
did not comment on
Loch's resignation, but
insisted that since the
end of World War II he
has proven his dedica-
tion to democracy.
Loch went through the
de-Nazification process
after the war and was
labeled a "fellow traveller"
rather than a Nazi. His past
was known when he was
employed, by WDR but it
was not raised again when
he was promoted.

Judy Holliday's real
name is Judith Tuvim.
