from the agenda. Western
diplomats said later that
the outcome was a major
political success for Israel
which was strongly sup-
ported by the West, espe-
cially the United States.
State
Department
spokesman John Hughes
warned in Washington last
week that if Israel were ex-
pelled from the UPU the
United States would "im-
mediately" pull its delega-
tion out of the congress,
suspend its participation of
the UPU and withhold
payment to the organiza-
tion. The use of secret bal-
lots was considered another
factor in Israel's favor.
The expulsion move was
initiated by the 16-member
Arab Postaillnioniecause
of Israel's continued occupa-
tion of south Lebanon and
its "refusal to implement
U.N. resolutions concerning
the Palestinian question."
Egyptian diplomsts indi-
cated before the vote that
they would not support the
ouster of Israel.
But the Israelis and their
friends were deeply con-
cerned by the attempt. The
expulsion of South Africa
from the UPU was a prece-
dent and while the same
treatment of Israel would
have few if any practical ef-

fects on its international,
mail contracts, it would
have been a major political
and diplomatic blow.
The Israelis feared that if
the Arab move succeeded it
would encourage new Arab
initiatives to have Israel
expelled from other inter-
national forums and organ-
izations. The Israelis lob-
bied vigorously before the
congress opened Monday.
Its delegation, headed by
Eytan Lachman, director of
postal services at the Com-
munications Ministry, was
beefed up by the presence of
Pinchas Eliav, deputy di-
rector general of the
Foreign Ministry and Am-
bassador Efreim Dubek, the
Israeli representative to the
various U.S. organizations
based in Geneva where
UPU headquarters are lo-
cated.
Before the congress
opened, West Germany's
Deputy Minister of Com-
muncations, Wilfried Flo-
rian, warned that attempts
were being made to
politicize the UPU.
The UPU, with a mem-
bership of 166 nations, is
the world's largest interna-
tional organization. Only
120 countries participated
in Tuesday's vote. Forty-
three countries did not send
delegations to the congress.

against Serbs and Jews in
World War II.

New York (JTA) — The
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith (ADL) has
asked a U.S. district court to
accept jurisdiction in a civil
suit seeking damages
against an alleged Nazi war
criminal living in the
United States.
The agency filed an
amicus curiae (friend-of-
the-court) brief with the
U.S. District Court for the
Central district of Califor-
nia last week in support of
five Holocaust survivors
from Yugoslavia against
Andrija Artukovic, a former
official of the Nazi puppet
state of Croatia. The court
has scheduled a hearing on
the suit July 9.
According to Abraham H.
Foxman, ADL's associate
director and head of the
ADL International Affairs
Division, the case marks the
first time a civil suit for
damages has been brought
in this country against an
alleged Nazi war criminal.
In their class action suit,
the five — all of whom were
confined in concentration
camps or lost relatives dur-
ing World War II — asked
for unspecified damages
from Artukovic, now 80, of
Surfside, Calif. The five,
now American citizens, are
Leo Handel, Leon and Shri
Kabiljo and Isaac and
Hanna Handy.
