The five accused are Wallace H. Allen, George A. Bright, Ken¬ neth Griffin, Robert Bowling, and Richard Bowling. They have been held without bond since their In¬ dictment for the bombings last October. DEFENSE ATTORNEYS sought by subpoena action to ob¬ tain a complete membership list of B'nai B'rlth in Georgia on the grounds that it would aid them in challenging prospective jurors. The move was apparently aimed at disqualifying Jews from serv¬ ice on the jury. I Judge Durwood T. Pye ruled against the defense attorneys on the ground that their subpoena did not nanie the B'nal B'rith. ^The attorneys had asked for the ] Georgia membership of the Anti- Defamation League. Arthur J. Levin, ADL southeastern direc¬ tor, took the stand to explain that the ADL has only one mem¬ ber In Georgia, whom he Identi¬ fied as Abe Goldstein. Mr. X.«vin agreed to supply the names of all ADL officers and employes In Georgia. Attorney James R. Venable ask¬ ed Mr. Levin If the ADL had not contributed $500 to a reward for I the arrest and conviction of the synagogue bombers. Mr. Levin I explained that the ADL had not, I but B'nai Br'lth had. He sought to clarify the relationship of the ADL and its parent organization, B'nal B'rlth, as the defense attor¬ neys sought to equate the two. * * THE ANTI-SEMI'nSM of de¬ fense attorneys was such that Judge Pye was prompted to de¬ clare that the Jewish people as a group were not on trial but five non-Jews accused of terrorism. This observation rebuffing de¬ fense attorneys was prompted by defense attorney Venable's alle¬ gation that B'nai B'rlth and the ADL "are interlocked and owned and operated by the Jewish race." A defense motion to quash in¬ dictments of the five accused men was overruled by Judge Pye. The Judge pointed out that defense at¬ torneys contended, in effect, state law provides "open season" on synagogues for bombers. JUDGE PVE held that Georgia law providing a death penalty In some bombings applied in the cur- rent case against the five accused. He thus made known that he con¬ sidered the crimes charged of such gravity that he could im¬ pose death sentences. Defense attorneys had claimed that the indictments were void because state statutes do' not specifically mention houses of worship among buildings protect¬ ed by law against bombing. Judge Pye Interpreted the law as Includ¬ ing churches and synagogues. It was at that point he noted that defense counsel was alleging the law provided "open season" on houses of worship. John 8.

JUSTICE FACES STERN TEST, SAYS KENNEDY NEW YORK—The "principles" of justice and morality" face "no sterner test than that which con¬ fronts us now," Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts declar¬ ed here in stressing that "the bard, tough question of our time is whether any free society . . . can meet the single minded ad¬ vance of the Communists." He said that "many of our foreign policy pronouncements on the highest level have been filled in recent years with scriptural quotations and moral impera¬ tives," but that we must "disting¬ uish sharply between morality and moralizing — between the preaching of ethical principles and their actual practice." ADDBE8SINO SOME 600 guests at a testimonial dinner given by The Jewish Theological Seminary of America to former Sen. Herbert H. Lehman in tht Starlight Roof of The Waldorf Astoria, Sen. Kennedy said that no one would use the word "wicked" to describe "the conduct of our foreign policy today or those who bear that responsibility," but thai "the gulf betwen words and deede is perhaps nowhere greater than In this area of applying ethics to international affairs." Ail too often. Sen. Kennedy said, we have "failed to recognize the great moral issues that shape and shake our world today more than either the Communist or the atomic revolutions." The "equality and dignity of every nation, large or small," often goes unrecogniz¬ ed, he declared, adding that "we pursue a course that too often Ignores their fears and aspira¬ tions." Indicating that more definite stands need to be taken on Inter¬ national issues. Sen. Keimedy criticized the "aloof" policy on "the Algerian and similar contro¬ versies. In the United Nations and elsewhere," and reminded that Dante had said, " 'the hottest places In hell are reserved for those who. In a time of great moral crisis, maintain their neu¬ trality.' " THE DINNER to Mr. Lehman served to mark the founding of The Herbert H. Lehman Insti¬ tute of Ethics, established earlier this year by the Seminary. In praising Mr. Lehman, Sen. Ken¬ nedy said: "The qualities of his leadership, the ardor of his ideals and the vast dimensions of his wisdom and Interests have all (continued on p«(e U) A Dream In The Judean HiUs BY MRa ABRAHAM TULIN National Cliairman of Hadassah's Medical Center Committee In the Judean Hills, five miles west of Jerusalem, a Hadassah dream Is coming true. There at Klryat Hadassah (Ha¬ dassah Town), overlooking the ancient village of Eln Karem, the $24 million Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center—In¬ cluding the Hebrew Urilversity- Hadassah Medical School — is be¬ ing built. There we shall have a iOO-bed hospital with service de¬ partments and laboratories; a separate Mother and Child Pavi¬ lion for maternity and Infant _are; the Rosensohn Clinic, to aerve more than 200,000 out-pa¬ tients annually; and the Henri¬ etta Szold School of Nursing and Residence. The Medical Center was deslgn- ,3d by an American architect and ,vlll be run by an American or¬ ganization ^ Hadassah. It is be- .ng made possible by American donors who are-contributing gen- ereoualy to a fund-raising effort under the national chairmanship of Mrs. Lawrence Schacht of South Orange, N. J. MORE THAN BOO construction workers are now busily engaged in building operations. Recently, the nursing school was dedicated. And other structures are rising on the Medical site. Upon Its scheduled completion, the Medical Onter Will comprise an Impressive complex of mag¬ nificent buildings dedicated to healing, teaching and research and dedicated, too, to the Idea that there must be no distinction in treatment baaed on race, color or creed — between Arab, Chris- ian and Jew. For Hadassah, in its more than four decades of service to the People of Palestine (now Israel) has proven that there are no racial or religious frontiers to medicine. When Hadassoh medical In¬ stallations were still on Mt. Sco- ABE YENKIN NAMED CHAIRMAN OF 1959 GENERAL CAMPAIGN Herbert S. Levy, president of the United Jewish BHind an¬ nounced at the recent 33rd An¬ nual Meeting of the United Jew¬ ish Fund the appointment of Abe I. Yenkin as the 1959 General Campaign Chairman. Abe Yenkin moves up to this top campaign position from that of Advance Gifts Division Chair¬ man tn 1958 under Herbert H. Schiff. THE MAJOR divisions which are the overall responsibility of the General Chairman, are Ad¬ vance Gifts, Trades and Profes¬ sions, Women's, Young Matrons, Young Adults, &nd Juniors. In 19S9 the Fund achieved its thli-d greatest total; was off only 7 per cent campared with 13 per cent in the country, yet the great¬ est number of subscribers were obtained. MR. YENKIN coines to this post with an excellent experience of leadership qualities tn com¬ munal affairs. He has been presi¬ dent of the Jewish (Center, Jew¬ ish Family Service, and Jewish (Community Cteuncil, In addition to serving on the board of the Columbus Jewish Home for Aged, the Advisory Oommittee of Hillel, a member of B'nai B'rith, and many other organizations as well as having been an officer of the Agudas Achlm (Tongregation.

To save life and to restore to people, physical¬ ly and emotionally, the dignity of the human being—this is the motivating force tn all we do. .' THE MEDICAL CENTER, uni¬ fied and Integrated according to ' Western standards, will express the basic concept of a university hospital. Because of the unusual advantage it has of being built in to form a central plan, it is truly an integrated whole. One of the major features of the Medical Center is already be¬ ing adopted by hospitals now un¬ der construction In various parts of the world. It is the brilliantly conceived radial hospital unit, whose service will reduce the work load and staff of the In¬ stitution. Nursing stations located in tlie heart of the radial unit, wlilch Is intended to house acutely ill pa¬ tients, will enable a concentration of medical treatment and nursing attention in closest proximity to thep attient. Team nursing will be possible by placing two rooraB to¬ gether, achieving a unit of eight beds, independent of the rest of the floor, served by sub-nursing positions. THE MEDICAL CENTER wUl be equipped with the newest model of the (Cobalt Bomb (a 3000 Curie Theraton), which enables a better definition and localiza¬ tion of radiation than previous types. Thus Hadassah's Tumor Institute will become 1 focal point of cancer research in the Middle East The Medical Center will also have two closed circuit tele¬ vision unites for scientific pur¬ poses. These color television units will make It possible for medical students to observe brain, heart and chest surgery. There the sick will be heale() with the modern medical and sur¬ gical techniques. There men and women will gather to acquire tlje learning and skills of the healer^i There physicians and scientists —¦ most of the American-trained -.- will probe for new cures to dread diseases, new treatments for old ailments. The work that shall be done'at the Medical Onter will bo of vital benefit to the State of Is*,' rae). In a time ot Middle EMt peace, we are convinced It oah : become a center of life and aclsn- tlfic advancement for the entire region.
