A third boy was found guilty but released because he was a minor. some BO American Arabs. Police and Secret service squads dis¬ persed the anti-Israel demon¬ strators. THB PRIMB Mtalster evaded questions from reporters, after the meeting, about such specifics as the problem of the Suez C^nal blockade and on whether he would meet West German (Chancellor konrad Adenauer during his United States visit. In a prepared statement, the Prime Minister said the meeting had been his first opportunity to see the President "since I last saw him In Frankfurt in 1»4B." He said the talks touched on United States-Israel relations "in their broad scope." Ben Gurion presented the Pres Ident with a gift album showing how the survivors of the concen¬ tration camps became the free citizens of Israel. The album de¬ picts the movement of DP's from CJermany to Israfl and their Inte¬ gration into the life of the State. SECRETARY OF State (3hrU- tlan Herter was stricken 111 of a digestive upset and was unable to participate In the White House meeting. Undersecretary of State C. Douglas Dillon sat in instead of the Secretary. Israel Ambas¬ sador Avraham Harman and Lewis Jonesi Assistant Secretary ot State for Near Eastern Affairs aiso participated. Later, Ben Gurion had a lengthy meeting with Undersecretary Dil¬ lon at the State Department after which the Israeli Prime Mtalster said that he had found a great deal of identity of views on many essential thinga Asked if he wanted a reaffirmation ot the 1950 Tripartite Declaration which guarantees the present Arab Is¬ rael borders, Ben Gurion t6id newspapermen; "I am not a great believer in statements; I believe In deeds." The State Department tendered a luncheon In honor of Ben Gur¬ ion at Blair House. Among those attending were (Chief Justice Barl Warren; Treasiuy Secretary Rob¬ ert Anderson; Agriculture Secre tary Ejra Benson; Labor Secre¬ tary James P. Mitchell; Allen EhiUes, director of the Central InitelUgence Agency; James Rid dleberger, director of the Inter¬ national Cooperation Administra¬ tion; Eric Johnson, one-time Presidential trouble-shooter; Gen¬ eral Curtis Le May, Vice-C3hief of Staff, UJS. Air Force, and John N. Irwta, assistant (Chief of De¬ fense for Intemational Security Affairs. THE MEETINO with Elisen¬ hower was one of the highlights of a series of appearances and conferences for the vigorous 73- year-old statesman on his first visit to the United States in nine years. The Prime Minister reportedly told President EUsenhower that he hoped the Western Allies would seek to reach an agreement at the May Summit meeting with the Soviet Union to end the rapid¬ ly-mounting tension In the Middle EJast He was understood not to have asked for American military aid, presumably In part at lea'Bt be¬ cause the President has remained consistently opposed to either sell¬ ing or giving arms to Israel. THE PURPOSE of the visit was not. It was evident, to make specific requests for arms or di¬ rect United States diplomatic aid but rather to register with the President and members of his ad¬ ministration Israel's views on Middle Bast problems ta advance of the Summit conference! The visit began with a flight on an EaI Al Israel airliner from Israel to Boston for an appear¬ ance at Brandeis University where the Prime Mtalster was awarded an honorary doctorate of laws. Among other greetings was a statement from the Elmbassy of the United Arab Republic to the effect that the reception for him in Washtagton might create an Impression among Arabs that the United States did not oppose Is¬ rael's recent "attacks" on the Syrian border and that the visit was part of a "world Zionist scheme" to create "a deterioration in relations between the Arab people and the American people."

'Anti-isms' Describe Germany's History BY DOROTHY YASSENOFF (Community, leaders and members of the (Columbus (Community Relations Committee had the opportunity this week of learning first-hand what is happening in Germany regarding anti-Semitism and the neo-Nazi revival. Nathan Belth, public relations director of the B'nai B'rlth Anti- Defamation League, who has just recently returned from meetings in Oermany held between German and Jewish leaders, spoke to a group of community leaders on Monday evening, March 14, at the home of Richard J. Abei. AT A NOON luncheon, Tues¬ day, ta the offices of the United Jewish Fund and Council, he dis¬ cussed with members of the (Com¬ munity Relations (Committee, the future of democracy in (Jermany, the future of (Jerman Jewry, what Is being done to bring about changes in Oerman politics, in CJerman education, in the Judi¬ ciary, and other aspects of Ger¬ man ilfe which influence the character and makeup of a peo¬ ple. Belth, a former newspaper man. Is an expert on German affairs. In 1954 he was one of a special three-man team of ADL officials invited by the Bonn Government to examine specifically the status of postwar civil rights and condi¬ tion of Jewish community In that country. An analytical ADL report en¬ titled "Germany — Nine Years Later," presented tbe committee's findings. BBI/TH POINTED out that the recent wave of antl-Semltlsm Is a German problem — the con¬ tinued history of a people known for their "anti-ism." Germans had been under the Illusion that no AWARD DErrRorr, (JTA) — Muriel Greenspon, a Detroit mezzo-so¬ prano, has been awarded the $2600 Detroit Grand Opera-Grin neil Scholarship Award. The only girl among the eight finalists, the 22-year-old singer was the un- aitlnvous choice. Miss Greenspcoi is now studytag for her master's degree in music at the University of Michigan. She will receive the degree next Jiine after a recital concert on May 1 at Ann Arbor. antl-Semitlsm existed. Suddenly the screen dropped on hidden ag¬ gression, and officials became em- barrassedly aware that there was still a residue left under the sur¬ face. Ordinarily, tha swastika inci¬ dents would have been of sljght Importance. They became news during the period between Christ¬ mas and New Years when note- wortliy activities were at a lull. Punishments have been severe. Ten months In Jail for a mis¬ demeanor would be loudly de. cried In America — even by Jews. Belth was positive in his state¬ ment tiiat there was no conspira- cjr, no international ring behind the swastika incidents. ' IN OERMANY they were the reflections of the character of the (Jerman people, and Important only because of their history. In America they were the pranks of juvenile delinquents and misguid¬ ed youngsters. Belth said that a great deal of progress has been made in Germ¬ any during the past years but that It would be several generations more before complete understand¬ ing and accord could be estab¬ lished between the Germans and other peoples. Germany wjii perhaps never be¬ come the power it once was, but culturally and industrially it will retain its importance. "We cannot afford to have an undemocratic Germany in the middle of EJurope," Belth said, THE PROBLEM of the Jew is to leam to forget emotion and to use rationalism ta dealing with the Germans. "The newly awakened aware¬ ness of German officials of the problem of hidden aggression, may wejl be the first step toward establishing l>etter diplomatic re¬ lations between Germany and Is¬ rael," Belth said. UJFC eaU-RINGERS- AFFAIR IS PLANNED FOR COUNTRY CLUB The Belle-ringer affair, which is the $50 to $199 minimum sub¬ scription affair of the Women's Division, United Jewish Fund and Council, will be held at Winding Hollow Country (Club on March 31 at 6 p.m. Mrs. Morris Paine, chairman of program, and her conunlttee have planned a party with cocktails served until 6:45 p.m. followed by a dinner, an address by Shaul Ramati, consul of Israel at Chi¬ cago, after which there will be a musical program. MRS. ARMAND Abel, chairman of solicitation, explained to her committee that thla year, when a woman pledges part of her con- tribution to the regular fund and part to the special fund, it Is con¬ sidered as a total gift. Therefore, the scope of ths group bas been broadened to ta- ciude all contributions from $60 to $190 as a total gift.
