Israel Leaders Move Gingerly To Keep Eichmann In Custody tenor's Note: Events in the Elclunann case change from day to day and stories appearing in this weeli's Ohronicle include liappenings only through Tuesday evening, June 14. JERUSALEM (JTA)—Israel leaders moved gingerly this week to retain custody of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Eichmann without losing the friendship of the country where he was captured. Prime Minister David Ben Gurion consulted at length with his aides on a, sharp note from Argentina demanding the return of Eichmann within a week. Argentina threatened to raise the issue at the United Nations If Israel re¬ fused" to yfttd the l!ormer SS Colonel charged with implement¬ ing the murder of 6,000,000 Euro¬ pean Jews. The note held out an Implied promise (hat once Eich¬ mann was returned, the Argen¬ tine Government would consider an extradition request. THE NOTE added that, if Elch- Home Construction May Start In Fall The Campaign Planning Cota-, compUshments to date and mittee to raise capital funds for determine next steps. to the new Jewish Home for Aged met last Sunday morning at the Excelsior CJlub to review the ac- Sponsors Collection For Quake Victims The CJolumbus B'nai B'rith Council, representing the four local chapters and lodges, has undertaken to collect clothes for victims of the recent earthqufike disaster In Chile. Although the full extent of the damage has not yet been assessed, it Is estimated that more than 400,000 people face the advent of winter with no more than the clothes on their backs. The need for warm clothing Is desperately urgent. In this critical situation, the Jewish community of Ck>lumbus, both as Individuals and collective¬ ly In organizational uAits, la asked to give what it can In the way of men's, women's and children's winter clothing, shoes, sweaters, blankets, etc. for the relief of these unfor¬ tunates. Pick-up of donations can be arranged for by calling the following Council members; Mre. Ike Cohen, BE. 1-3176; Mrs. Albert Becker, BB. 1- 6946; Mrs. Robert Bender, BE. 1-5883; Sol Shaman, UN. 6- 4S3X; or B'nai B'rith office, BB. 1-6221. Aaron Zacks, campaign chair¬ man for the building fund, re¬ ported that more than |600,000 had been raised during the short 1959 fall campaign period. The generous response of contribu¬ tions for the New Home demon¬ strated to the entire community the widespread Interest which the community has in this new pro¬ ject. SO HEARTENED has everyone beetn that the Building C!ommit- tee under Robert Weiler, Sr. along with the architect, Mark D. Fein¬ knopf, have been Instructed by the Board of Trustees ot the Home to take Immediate steps to draw up specifications and build¬ ing plana for bid purposes. If the contributions continue to be received and the plans are com¬ pleted there Is a good likelihood that actual construction can begin early this fall. Jack Resler, who Is campaign vice-chairman, along with Wil¬ liam Kalui' the other vloe-chalr- man, stated that the community needs this Institution and that those associated with Its work haye a responsibility of planning the Home on a sound and pro¬ gressive basis. Its plans must take into consideration not only pres¬ ent but also future needs. He expressed confidence in the money being forthcoming. AT THB MEETINO, assign¬ ment of prospects were made. Be¬ cause of the limited campaign period last year, many persons were not seen. Efforts will now (Contlnutd on pag* 4) mann were extradited on geno¬ cide charges, he would have to be tried either in CJermany, the site of the crime, or before an Inter¬ national tribunal In accordance with the UN Convention on Geno¬ cide, to which Argentina and Is¬ rael are signatories. Israel's ex¬ planation that volunteers seized Eichmann constituted recognition of responsibility by Israel for "the violation of Argentine sov¬ ereignty," the note added. "This government understands perfectly the sentiments which Jewish people may harbor toward a man charged with extermina¬ tion in the concentrtition caunps," the note stated. Moreover, Argen, tina recognized tliat Eichmann had been Hying in Argentina un¬ der false documents, an "evi¬ dently irregular situation" which "was In no way In conformity with conditions for asylum or territorial refuge." But eill of these circumstances, the note asserted, did not alter the obligations of UN member states to abide by international law. CSRAEUS were reported to feel that the Argentine reaction, however understandable In a nor. mal case, was exaggerated and misdirected In the Eichmann situation. The reaction of shock here also d£impened somewhat \yaa beginning to be a mounting criticiara of the manner in which the Prime Minister and the Foreign Ministry had handled the aftermath of Eichmann's capture. The criticism was directed par¬ ticularly at the text of the Israel note, and the reference to "volun¬ teers" as having tracked down and seized the Nazi criminal. Evening newspapers here car¬ ried statements on the Argentine demand headlined "NO!" in large type. Maariv declared that "It Is every Jew In Israel who would say just one word In reply to Argentina—no." The newspa¬ per added that Elctimann should not be returned to the country where he found a quiet shelter for so long. "EVEN IP the price for this is high, as It may be, it is not only Israel's right tp try pichmann but also the obligation given to Israel by the 6,000,000 Jews who cannot say anything now," the newspaper, which has tbe largest circulation in Israel, stated. Israeli experts on IntematlonEU law asserted that Argentina was in error in saying, in its note de¬ manding Eichmann's return, that Eichmann was being charged by Israel with genocide and, there¬ fore, he ahould be tried in the countries whete he committed his crimes or before an intemational tribunal. The experts emphasized that the charge against Eich¬ mann, as stated Ijefore Haifa Magistrate Alfred. Bach, were crimes against humanity under the law for punishment of Nazis and their collaborators, which is an Israeli law. IT WAS ALSO noted that the Israel-Argentine extradition treaty, which signed shortly be¬ fore Eichmann's capture, has not yet been ratified by either coun¬ try. Moreover, Israelis were be¬ coming doubtful that Argentina would have extradited Eichmann, noting that Argentina has not extradited various ex-Nazis whose return has been requested by var¬ ious countries, including West Germany and Yugoslavia. Meanwhile, Israel police officers (Continued on page A) tlce E>cpartment to investigate the Nazi activities here with a view to determining whether a finding of subversion should be made. The JWV leaders aslted Eisenhower to convene a White House confer¬ ence of civic and veterans leaders to consider the neo-Nazi problem. THEY SAID that subversive neo-Najfl activities had emerged In Washington "in the very sha¬ dow of the Capitol building." They expressed dismay that a member ot the Marine Corps Is permitted to participate In the local Nazi group. Rep. Seymour Haipern, a mem¬ ber of the House Oommlttee on Veterans Affairs, expressed con¬ cern to the Attorney General over members of the armed forces, veterans, and government em¬ ployees in the so-called "Ameri¬ can Nazi Party." THE NEW York Republican said the actions and alms of the local neo-Nazi group were not in conformity with traditions of free government. Rep. Haipern asked for a report on a current Justice Department atudy of possible sub- version. The Jewish Labor Committee urged Rogers to Invoke appro¬ priate sections of the Subversive Activities Control Act against the American Nazi Party. THE APPEAL was made In a telegram signed by JLC Chair¬ man Adolph Held. Asserting that the "use of the Nazi symbol and utilization of Nazi philosophy aa a political base in this country Is subversive to the nation's best interests," the Jewish Labor Com- (Continued on page 4) Uniformed Neo-Nazis Picket White House WASHINGTON (.TTA) — A uniformed squad of George Lincoln Rockwell's neo-Nazi brownshirts, wearing swastika armbands, picketed the White House last Saturday bearing placards urging gassing of Jews. The , placards read: "Eich¬ mann did not IcIU any Inno¬ cent Jews;" "Ike, help free Eichmann;" "Punish the Jew International Bandits;" "It's No Crime to Kill Jew CJom- munlst Traitors; We Killed the Rosenbergs;" "If th© Jews Can Kidnap Eichmann, They Can Kidnap You." Police arrested two support- ei-8 of Lincoln Rockwell's neo-Nazi group on charges of disorderly conduct at a Nazi rally near the U.S. National Archives Building. One of the men arrested participated In the picketing of the White House at which time he wore a hrownshirt uniform and 8 w a s 11 il a armband. Rock¬ well's meeting ended in con¬ fusion as several non-Jews heck'ed the neo-Nazi leader. UFE IMPRISONMENT SAO PAULO (JTA)—Dr. Fritz Katz, director of the Jewish Hos¬ pital of Alexandria, Egypt, was convicted by a court there re¬ cently as a "spy," and sentenced to life imprisonment, according to an authoritative report re¬ ceived here. Dr. Katz, a Jew, came to Egypt shortly before World War U, tis a refugee from Nazi Germany. Make Your UJFC Pledge And Pay It Now SEEK $35,000,000 . . .

Levy, president of the United Jewish Fund and Council. Appointment of Weinfeld and Schiff to head this immediate effort was described by Levy "as an indication of the seriousness ot the need for cash funds at this time by UJFC-supported agencies all over the world as well as in our own community." LEW pointed out that the UJFC requires cash not only to A. B. Weinfeld fulfill its responsibilities to the United Jewish Appeal but also to meet payment on a UJA bank loan and for ourrent obligations of local and national agencies.

Schiff, vice-president of UJFC and chairman of its Allo- '^ cations Committee, to present a V sizable check from our cpmmun¬ ity demonstrating our determina¬ tion to continue our aid to the people of Israel and world Jewry." SCHIFF IS also a member of UJA's National Cash Mobilization Committee, along with other na¬ tionally prominent leaders. Levy said that Weinfeld and J. Schiff will be contacting contribu¬ tors. He urged encouragement and support of this effort by making prompt remittances. IN A SPBdAL appeal, L«vy •lock Schlff requested those who have not yet made their 1960 contributions to the local campaign to ,do so Im¬ mediately and accompany their pledges with full or partial pay¬ ments, if possible.
