Austria Ponders
Recommendation
On Waldheim

i r. s

Vienna (JTA) — The Austrian
Embassy in Washington was in-
structed last week to investigate
whether the United States in-
tends to adopt the recommenda-
tion of a U.S. Justice Depart-
ment official who has urged in a
written report that Presidential
candidate Kurt Waldheim be
barred from the U.S. because of
his wartime activities as a
Wehrmacht officer.
Foreign Minister Leopold
Gratz told a news conference
here that he had advised the
Embassy to look into the possi-
bility of Waldheim being barred
from the country. Gratz said
that if this was true, Waldheim
would be eligible to the protec-
tion of the Austrian Consulate
like all other Austrian citizens.
Gratz's remarks came shortly
after it was disclosed in Wash-
ington that Neal Sher, the direc-
tor of the Justice Department's
Office of Special Investigations
had urged that Waldheim be
barred from the U.S. under a
1978 amendment to the immi-
gration law that excludes aliens
who took part in Nazi war
crimes.
Meanwhile, Justice Depart-
ment officials in Washington
cautioned that the recommenda-
tion in Sher's report seeking to
place Waldheim on a watch list
was "at least days away" from
being forwarded to Attorney
General Edwin Meese and that
the recommendation "certainly
does not represent Department
policy."
In another development, an
official for the World Jewish
Congress proposed that Wald-
heim meet at the organization's
Geneva office to give testimony
under oath of his war time acti-
vities. The proposal came as a
counter-offer to Waldheim's in-
vitation, in an interview pub-
lished in an Austrian weekly
magazine, to meet in Vienna
with WJC Secretary General
Israel Singer.
The WJC has provided evi-
dence of Waldheim's past ac-
tivities as a Wehmacht officer in
the Balkans and his service as
an intelligence officer under the
command of Gen. Alexander
Loehr of Army Group E. Loehr
was later hanged for his war
Crimes.

Young Israel
Changes Travel

New York -- Major adjust-
ments have• been made in the
itineraries of the Achy& Plus and
Achva in Europe programs of the
National Council of Young Israel.
Due to the current security prob-
lems confronting all air travel in
Europe, all European segments
have been dropped.
The Achva Plus program has
been adjusted to take place
entirely in Israel, and will use di-
rect El Al Flights only.
