Officials Arrest Peaceful Pickets; Not Nazi Pickets BY MILTON FBIEDMAN (Copyright, 1960, Jewish Telegrnphlo Agency, Inc.) WASHINGTON — The District of> Columbia has arrested pickets who demonstrated peacefully against firms practicing ajitl-Negro dlscrlm.lnatlon. But Nazi pickets, carrying placards urging gassing of Jews, are immune under the local interpreta¬ tion of "free speech." Clark King, chief prosecutor for the District of Columbia, has vigorously prosecuted pro-Negro pickets. King also has In¬ dicated belief that Jews disturb the peace by objecting to Lin- c61n Rockwell's Nazi Party tirades. But he becomes a fanatical liberal when the potential defendant is a memiber of the Nazi Party. KING SHOCKED WASHINGTON by ordering a Jew held for trial for annoying "Mr. Bockwell" by "talking loud" while the Nazi leader was making a public anti-Semitic harangue. A Brandeis graduate, 22-year-oid Larry Selinkln, was bluntly informed he had no right to disagree orally when Rockwell was speaking. King asked Selinkln if he would interrupt if "the Presi¬ dent of tho United States" was making an address. It was the "free speech of Rockwell that police were concerned with pro¬ tecting. SELINION SOUGHT TO explain that he merely tried to ask a question: "What about Hitler?" He confessed to shouting this question. Selinkln was surrounded and molested by Rockwell's "storm- troopers." Selinkln Was arrested along with one Nazi. But the Nazi was released immediately, without trial, after forfeiting $10 oollaterlal. THE ANTI.DEFAMATION LEAGlfE of B'nai Brith termed the silencing and arrest of Selinkln a "gross injustice." There was readiness to prosecute Jews but tolerance of Nazi provoca¬ tions. There was "free speech" for Nazis but not for Jews. King and the Park Police was charged by the ADL -with "misguided' 'interpretation of their rospon-sibiiites. The ADL stand against the licentious abuse of "free speech" principles is rejected by another communal group. The District police, several months ago, actually heotographed an order to arrest Nazi agi¬ tators for disorderly conduct. Hearing of this, the communal group rushed to District authorities and managed, at the last moment, to prevent issuance of the orders. It was feared that Nazi "free speech" might be jeopardized. THE PRESIDENT OF THE body said "it would be a bad bargain to secure the arrest of a crackpot like Rockwell at the IsraeFs Apology May Not Be Sufficient For Frondizi (conllnued on page 4) Stephen Levitt STEPHEN LEVITT IS TEENAGER OF YEAR Stephen Levitt, son ot Mr .and Mrs. Burton Levitt, 104 S. Stan¬ wood Rd., was named "Teenager of the Year" at the Teen Age Council (TAC) Honors Dinner heid at the (Columbus Jewish Center on Saturday evening, June 18. The award, which was given for the first time, was voted by mem¬ bers of TAC representing over 450 members of the 10 Columbus Jewiah Youth Organizations. LEVITT, tho recipient, served as president of United Synagogue Youth of Temple Tifereth Israel, and as president of Kappa Tau Zota fraternity. He served as co- chairman of the Central Region USY spring board meeting, and represented USY at all national and regional conventions. Under bis leadership in both the Youth group and the frater¬ nity, standards were raised in program content and activities. Active as well in community af¬ fairs, Levitt served as chairman of the Polio Fund's Youth Drive. He was recognized last December as tho Citizen-Journal's Teenager ot the Week. HE GRADUATED this June from Bexley High School and will attend Ohio State University, Col¬ lege of (^mmerce and Adminis¬ tration in the fall. His grandparents aro Mr. and Mrs. Ben F. Levinson, 155 S. Roosevelt Ave., and Mr .and Mrs. L. H. Levitt of Cleveland, O. tine delegation, refused to specify what "reparation" his govern¬ ment would consider "adequate." He had been asked the question, first by Israel Foreign Minister Golda Meir then, forcefully, by Arkady A. Sobolev, head of the Soviet Union's delegation. THE FORMULA, worked out by the United States, provided for a mild censure of Israel for seiz¬ ing Eichmann bi Buenos Aires, acceptance of Israel's apology for violating Argentine sovereignty and a strong suggestion that the two countries proceed to work out their differences on the Issue directly. The formula was embodied in a resolution approved by a vote ot eight to nothing. Russia and Po¬ land abstained on the ground that a vote for the resolution might be interpreted as a vote in favor of an order to Israel to return Eich¬ mann to Argentina. Argentina, as a party to the dispute, disqualified itself from voting. All of the countries which voted for the resolution made it clear that they wore not asking Israel to return Eichmann. THE RESOLUTION declared that the transfer of Eichmann "constitutes a violation of the sovereignty" of Argentina. On behalf of tlie United States Government, Ambassador Henry (I^bot Lodge had told the (Council that Washington would consider Israel's apology, already voiced in UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA)—Argentine President Arturo Frondizi was reported to have said at Brussels, Belgium, that he does not consider an Israeli apology sufficient "reparation" for the "illicit and clandestine" transfer ot Nazi killer Adolf Eichmann from Argen¬ tine territory to Israeli soil. When the Security Council adopted the resolution proposed by Argentina, calling for "adequate reparation" from Israel, Dr. Mario Amadeo, chairman of the Argen the (^uncil by Mrs. Meir, as "ade- quate." Adoption of the resolution itself, "taken together" with Mrs Melr's apology for Israel's viola tion of Argentine sovereignty in the abduction of Eichmann, should close the case, Lodge said. THE BRUSSEtS statement by Frondizi left doubts as to what further steps, if any, were con¬ templated by the Argentine Gov¬ ernment. There was certainty that the previously scheduled meeting in Europe, between Fron¬ dizi and Israel's Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, would not be held (Ben-Gurlon and his official party left Schiphol Airport, Am¬ sterdam, for Lydda, Israel, ac¬ cording to a Jewish Telegraphic Agency dispatch from The Hague. Ben-Gurlon had spent an extra day at the Dutch capital, "for private reasons." There were re¬ ports, however, that his stay in The Netherlands had been pro¬ longed bl the expectation that Frondizi might invite him to a meeting at Brussels.) DR. AMADEO had told the Council, at one point In the debate on his anti-Israel resolution, that his government demanded not only the return of Eichmann, but also the punishment of those who captured the Nazi without per¬ mission from the Argentine (3ov- ermnent. However, the Buenos Aires representative did not re¬ peat this interpretation when Make Your UJFC Pledge And Pay It Now FRENCH - ISRAEL DESIGNS Fashion Show Set For Dec. 8 One of the highlights of tho Harry Golden Dinner last Tuesday, was the revelation by Mrs. Robert S. Curl, Women's Division chair¬ man for the Columbus Israel Bonds (T^jmrnittee, of the plans for the Columbus premiere showing of the "French-Israel Fashion Show."

For in many instances, the French de¬ signers have created fashions from fabrics loomed or woven in Israel. AMONG THE couturiers who have designe-d these original fash- Ions for the larael Bonds Wom- New French Fashion "Queen of Sheba" Is the name of this at-home gown by Ca»- tillo, tor the House of Lanvin.

The entire two-day debate had resulted in an extraordinary out-, pouring of world opinion about . war criminals in general, Elch- mann in particular, and world expression of horror over the holo¬ caust created by the Nazis who (Continued on peqe 4) CRUSADING JEWISH EDITOR ESCAPES MIAMI BOMB ATTACK MIAMI (JTA) — A bomb was hurled at the home of Samuel Mindlin, whoso last name is the' same as Leo Mindlin, executive editor of the Jewish Floridian. The two are not related. Leo Mindlin has been crusading editorially against a local radio commentator, Alan Courtney, of Station WQAM, who has accused Israel, on the air, of "crimes worse than Hitler's." C3ourtney has insisted in his broadcaata that Nazi killer Adolf Eichmann, awaiting trial in Israel for the mass murder of Jews, "must be assumed innocent until proved guilty." The bomb in front of the Sam¬ uel Mindlin homo tore a hole three feet wide by three feet In depth on the lawn and sidewalk facing the Samuel Mindlin prop¬ erty. Police und FBI are investi¬ gating the attack, and have placed .the homes of both Mlndlins under 24-hour surveillance. Leo Mindlin reported in his column that he had received seven threatening letters, two of which had warned that his home would be bombed. He stated that all of the letters Included "crudely anti- Semitic" remark^. Courtney has been haranguing on the air against Leo Mindlin - and his newspaper, accusing them of having "crucified" Roy Cohn, former counsel for the late Sen¬ ator Joseph McCarthy. He has been accused by Ralph Renlck, vice-president In charge of news of the local CSS-TV affiliate. Sta¬ tion WTVJ, of "arousing the worst Instincts" of men.
