He was seized in Buenos Aires. Preparations for the trial continued In several areas.

BY MDUTON FRIEDMAN JTA Staff Correspondent (Copyright, I960, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) WASHINCJTON (JTA)—The Marino Corps indicated this week It had been advised by tho Department of Justice that affiliation of Marines with neo-Nazi groups was not illegal. That was the latest development growing out of the disclosure at a hectic Memorial Day rally staged by Lincoln Rockwell's Ameri¬ can Nazi party that a Marine stationed at the nearby Quantieo Marine base was one of his estimated 24 "storm-troopers." THE MARINE was arrested by military police on Memorial Day on charges of aiding Rockwell in the staging of an anti-Jewish rally here. Hundreds of tourists were involved in a near-riot, sparked by verbal attacks and threatening gestures by the "storm troopers while Rockwell sought to incite his auditors against Jews over a powerful public address system. The Marine was freed after an Investigation which showed, ac¬ cording to (3orps authorities, that there had not been any violation of either Marine Corps regula¬ tions "or the universal code of military justice." Two powerful senators moved into the situation, Sen. Leverett Saitonstall of Massachusetts, ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services CJommlttee, indi¬ cated he had asked the Marine Corps commandant for a full re- port. The office of Senate Major¬ ity Leader Lyndon B. Johnson, Texas Democrat, also was study¬ ing the participation of the Marine in Rockwell's activities. Sen. Johnson also is a member of the Operation-Age 7 Is Hebrew School Need BY LARRY SOPPEL Operation—Age seven, should be launched by the Ck>lumbus Hebrew School. This was the opinion of Dr. Judah Pilch, surveyor of the Colum¬ bus Hebrew School. Dr. Pilch reported on his findings at a meeting at the Jewish (Center last Monday night. THE SURVEYOR explained that children in the school "need more time" to gain a good Jewish education. His solution Is that Morning Schedule Is Set By Hebrew School Beginning Monday, the He¬ brew School classes wiil be held in the morning. The classes which formerly met on the third trip, from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m., will now meet from 9 to 10 a.m. The second trip classes, which met from 6 to 8:15 p.m. will now meet from 10 to 11:15 a.m. The first trip classes, which were picked up from the pub¬ lic schools, will now meet from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The buses will be picking up the children about o n e-half hour before classes begin. Parents are urged to note the morning schedule, and are asked to co-operate accord¬ ingly. The Hebrew School will be in session through the month of June. parents should begin their chil¬ dren on the road to a thorough Jewish education at age seven, something which isn't being done in Ojlurobus. He also recommends another quarter hour of study each day, in addition to decen. tralization of the school. To achieve this he reconunend- ed "more of a climate In the com- muhity condusive to Intensive education." Dr. Pilch explained that a study such as the one he did is a "means to an end, not the cure." He said his report Is simply organized. HE SAID, of the school, that there are areas which are defin¬ itely good, others need Improve¬ ment. "Under existing limited fa¬ cilities, you have a good school. But like a screwdriver, you can tighten certain loose screws," he said. The surveyor explained that there is a norm in the country for the tests whloh he gave the <3HS students. "Some were a little above, some a little t)elow, some (Continuad on page 4) Armed Services Conimittee. THE DEPARTMENT of Justice was said to have explained that CJommunist groups are dangerous because of a world Communist conspiracy centered In the Soviet Union. Since there is allegedly no Nazi nation or world-wide con¬ spiracy, neo-Nazi orgalnizations are not considered as objection¬ able, according to the Depart¬ ment. The Marine Corps was informed that the Justice Department has not designated Lincoln Rockwell's American Nazi Party as "subver¬ sive." It was explained that the Marine Corps seeks to avoid in¬ terference in the personal politi¬ cal views of Marines as long as such views are neither Communist nor "dangerously leftist." The Jewish War Veterans made representations to the Marine Corps against participation of Marines in Lincoln Bockweli's Nazi "storm troops." The JWV is also seeking to determine why the U.S. Department of Justice has not designated Rockwell's group as a subversive organiza¬ tion. THE VETERANS announced a national policy committee meet¬ ing had been summoned to meet in New York on June 11, to dis¬ cuss counter - measures against the Nazi activities in Washington and the Nazi rally scheduled to be held in New York on July 4. The Marine was cautioned by his superiors against wearing his Marine Ctorps uniform while serv- ing as a neo-Nazi "trooper." The Corps explained that, had this en¬ listed man joined any organiza¬ tion on the Attorney General's list of subversive groups, he would have been court-martialed. The United States Department of Justice advised the Marine Corps that Rockwell's "American Nazi Party" has not been officially listed as a subversive organiza¬ tion. Many complaints were lodged with the U.S. Park Police as a result of a neo-Nazi disturbance that occurred on Sunday. Like the Memorial Day fracas, this also involved a throng of hundreds. When Individuals protested against Rockwell's anti-Semitic tirade, the Park Police — by threats and force — removed a number of anti-Nazis from the scene. POLICE UPHELD the Rock¬ well group's "right to freedom of expression" but denied the same right to all who sought to voice antl-NazI sentiments. Guarded by police, neo-Nazis circulated through the crowd, who were mainly tourists, surrounding some of the anti-Nazis, threatening them ^d taunting them. The po- (Conllnued on Pd9* 4] isterial committee waa set up to decide "news policy and to co¬ ordinate release of information" on the Eichmann investigation. The conunlttee consists of repre¬ sentatives of the Government press office, the Ministries of Jus¬ tice and Foreign Affairs, the police and the Security Services. The committee also will handle arrangements for press coverage of the trial. Details of the seizure of Eich¬ mann were reported in the press in Buenos Aires. The report said that the Nazi war criminal was seized by Israeli agents when he left a bus in a Buenos Aires suburb about three weeks ago, to walk home. "A CAR moved quickly to the curb and Israel secret agents jumped out and seized him," the report stated, "His family became alarmed by his absence and checked hospitals and morgues. Realizing that he must have been abducted, the family fled into hiding, without knowing that six hours after the seizure, Eichmann was on an Israeli plane headed for Tel Aviv." The report re¬ called that Eichmann had been living under an assumed name In Latin America for eight years. Yehuda Shlmony, passenger service manager of El Al-Israel Airlines, said a report in Time magazine identifying him as head of an Israeli commando unit sent to Buenos Aires to capture Eich¬ mann was "totally untrue and un¬ founded." The news weekly's story said that seizure of the Nazi master criminal took place on May 13. Shlmony said that he left for Buenos Aires on May 4 and de¬ parted from there on May 10 and that during that period he had spent his time obtaining passage permission for an Bl Al special flight which brought an Israeli delegation to Argentina on a for¬ mal visit. TWO WELL-KNOWN Arab lawyers In Israel were asked to serve as defense attorneys for Eichmann, but they categorically rejected the offer, it was reported. In the meantime. Minister of Jus¬ tice Plnhas Rosen appealed to editors of Israeli newspapers to be reserved In publishing reports on the developments in the Eich¬ mann case while the matter is awaiting court action. The Israel Government press office officially denied a report which had appeared in The New York Times speculating that Is¬ raeli intelligence agents had slain memhers of the Eichmann family in effecting the capture of Eich. mann. The Israelis denied that any members of the Eichmann imily had been harmed, and de¬ scribed the report as a "dastardly conjecture" and a ''baseless inven¬ tion." Asher Ben Nathan, director general of the Israel Defense Ministry, disclosed in a statement that the first clue to Eichmann's whereabouts was found in 1946. During that year, Ben Nathan, who served in the underground and headed a special Haganah of¬ fice in Austria in the Immediate postwar years, said he met Dieter Wialicieny, who was associated Adolf Eichmann, It was learned, but has taken exception to other parts and may send larael a fur¬ ther note on the subject. The Argentine authorities, it w£is said here, accepted Israel's explanation of how Eichmann came into Israel's hands. They were reported displeased, how¬ ever, by Israel remarks that nu¬ merous Nazi leaders had found refuge in Argentina and were still in hiding there. IWEANWHILE a London news¬ paper report that Adolf Eichmann had attempted suicide by bashing his head against tbe wall of his cell was flatly denied here by CJommander Abraham Selinger, head of the Sixth Bureau which is conducting the investigation of the Eichmann case. Selinger insisted that there had not been any attempt by Eich¬ mann to take his life. According to reports here, Eichmann's cell is padded to prevent the prisoner from harming himself. Indications that Eichmann will be formally charged with crimes against the Jewish people — a capital offense under Israel law- were given with the disclosure of details about the secret arraign¬ ment of Eichmann before a mag¬ istrate earlier in tho day, The Nazi was brought before Magis¬ trate Alfred Back of Haifa In a specially prepared chamber at the prison where the Nazi official is being held. He wm ordered re¬ manded for another period of 15 days. ASSISTANT Commander Eph¬ ralm Hofstater, deputy head of the Sixth Bureau, appeared before the magistrate to ask for the re¬ mand. He also asked for a court order under the terms of the laws against crimes against humanity and against the Jewish people prohibiting publication of tnfor- raation on Eichmann's place of detention or security arrange- Rockwell's Support Is Nixed By Nixon WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Vice-President Richard M. Nixon has repudiated support offered him in his presiden¬ tial campaign by George Lin¬ coln Rockwell, leader of. the "American Nazi Party." Herbert G. Klein, special as¬ sistant to the Vice President, said Nixon's views on Naz¬ ism were in the same cate¬ gory as his reaction to Com¬ munism. Referring to Rock¬ well's advocacy of the Nixon candidacy, Klein said that "all Americans should join in op¬ posing any man who stirs up bias and hatred." He recalled Nixon's visit to the Warsaw Ghetto last year and said the Vice President was very moved by the experience. In a public meeting here Rockwell asserted that his group would campaign for Nixon. He denounced the t^oderal Government as rid¬ dled with Jews and bracketed Jews and (^mmunists. ments. The magistrate granted the remand requested by Hof¬ stater and the security order. (Commander Hofstater told the magistrate that Eichmann was ¦ charged with crimes against tbe Jewish people under the Nazis and Collaborators (Punishment) Law and crimes against humanity under another provision of the samfs law. In his affidavit to the court, made public later, Hof¬ stater said: "I have reasonable ground for charging the accused with the above offenses and here¬ by request the exjensign of his detention for a period of 16 days." This was the second detention order ma^ against Eichmann, the first having been Issued by Magistrate Yedid HalevI in Tel Aviv on May 23. Eichmann, It was reported later, listened atten¬ tively to tho charges which Hof¬ stater translated Into German. When asked by the magistrate whether he had anything to say, he replied he had nothing to say. MAGISTRATE Back, a naUve of Silesia, received his degree in law in Germany but was barred from practice by the Nazi regime after 1933. His parents and many members of his family perished at the hands of the Nazis. The holding of the trial in IContlnned on paga 4} Name Golden Dinner Honorary Chairmen James A.
