REPARATIONS JERUSALEM (JTA) -Dr. Na¬ hum Goidmann, in a press con¬ ference whieh ranged over many world Jewish problema, disclosed this week plans for a West Ger¬ man conference to accelerate In¬ dividual compensation payments, tho possibility that a major non- Zionist American organization might join the World Zionist Or¬ ganization, and that 10 Jewish communities in Russia had been invited to attend the World Jew¬ ish Congress convention In Stock¬ holm. He announced that Chancellor Konrad Adenauer had called a conference in Bonn on June 18 of premiers and finance ministers of ail .states in the West German Republic to discuss with Dr. Goidmann and reparations ex¬ perts means of speeding up the lagging individual compensation payments to victims of Nazism.

PARTNERSHIP URGED BETWEEN AMERICAN JEWISH PRESS AND ORGANIZATIONS NEW YORK (JTA)—A plea for "partnership" between the American Jewish press and the national Jewish organizations "so as to reach the American Jewish Community through the best channel of communication we have for educating our people on the problems confronting us," was voiced at the annual conven¬ tion of the American Jewish Press Association, held at the Park Sheraton Hotel here.

WASHINGTON — A damaging blow was struck the organized enemies of Israel by Secretary of State Christian Herter 10 years ago when he was a Congressman trom Massachusetts. Herter knocked the props from under a dangerous anti-Israel front group that sought to en¬ snare him in its activities. The group, now defunct, was known as "HELP" (Holyland emer¬ gency llaslon prog;ram). HELP named Herter its vice- chairman. He originally believed HELP'S purpose was humanitar¬ ian aid to Arab refugees. But after this correspondent inter¬ viewed him about his participation, Herter took a closer look. Herter studied the organization's actual objectives and learned more about the extreme anti-Israel views of other membera of HELP'S executive committee. WHEN HE WAS satisfied as to the facts, Herter resigned from HELP. He made public a letter of resignation which de¬ fended Israel and described the "political objectives" of HELP as contrary to the welfare of Israel. Herter had concluded that the real Intent of HELP was to aid Arab diplomacy. This was to be done by keeping the Arab refu¬ gee issue alive aa a political Sword of Damocles, poised over the State of larael. A member organization of HELP was the so-called "Ameri¬ can Middle East Relief, Inc." George M. Barakat, an Arab- American of Boston, Mass., served as executive director ot this com¬ ponent of the HELP propaganda front. Barakat gave typical testi¬ mony before the Senate Immi¬ gration Subcommittee. BARAKAT ALLEOED that Arab women and children fled from "massacre" at the handa of tlic Israelis "out'bf fear of bodily persecution." His testimony amounted to an emotional propa¬ ganda appeal against Israei and the "well-financed" American Jews who, he intimated were try¬ ing to pressure American foreign policy against the best U.S. nat¬ ional interests. Other leaders of HELP were such antl-Zlonists as Dorothy Thompson, Alfred Llllenthal, Lesslng Rosenthal, and others long active In anti-Israel propa¬ ganda campaigns. HERTER DIRECTED his let¬ ter of resignation to HELP chair, man Henry Sloane Cottha. Her¬ ter said he was quitting because "it has long been a primary con¬ cern of mine that there should be a strong Israel which can offer a haven to the countless persecuted Jews ot the world." Herter said "the National Coun¬ cil of HELP as presently organ¬ ized is made up in a large part of persons who have publicly taken a position against the cre¬ ation of an Independent Israel and there has, therefore, been created a reasonable inference that the political objectives of the (Council and those of Israel will be in conflict. "My own position In the C3oun- cll has already given the errone¬ ous impression that I have chosen to take sides against Israei. Noth¬ ing could be further from the truth, particularly because of my conviction that Israel Is already taking most constructive steps toward a solution of the refugee problem."
