LONDON, (JTA) — Arturo Frondizi,' president of Argen¬ tina, Monday reiterated his de¬ mand for Israel's return of Nazi killek- Adolf Eichmann to Argentina. He warned that his country's envoy to Israel, Am¬ bassador Rodolfo Arias, 'n'ill not return to his post In Israel until "ample reparation" is re¬ ceived from Israel. JERUSALEM (JTA)—larael of- ficlals are pondering some way. to placate Argentina on its stand that Israel's apology for violating Argentine soverelgrnty In seizing Nazi Adolf Eichmann did not constitute "adequate reparation." That was the phrase in the resolution approved l>y the Uni¬ ted Nations Security Council at a session requested by Argentina. All the major powers Indicated they felt that Israel's apology constituted such reixarations but Argentina sent a new note ask¬ ing Israel what it intended to do in the line of such reparations. The new note did not repeat Ar¬ gentina's original demand that Eichmann be returned to Argen¬ tina. MEANWHILB IN Bonn, Presi¬ dent Ajluro Frondizi of Argen¬ tina toid a press conference that his CJovernment was eager to maintain friendJy relations with Israel, but that Israel has been requested to suggest "adequate reparation" for violating Argen¬ tine territory in the seizure of Adolf Eichmann. Frondizl's statement, and Bue¬ nos Aires reports that Argentina had "officially" asked Israel to state her intentions on reparation, appeared to indicate that the Ar¬ gentine Government did not, as did most members of the United Nations Secrity Council, consider formal passage of the Argentine resolution censuring Israel and Israel's apology to Argentina as "adequate reparation." IN GENERAL, in regard to Nazi war criminals, who had taken refuge in Argenttaa, the Argentine President said his government was "quite willing" to extradite them to West Ger¬ many. He insisted, however, that such requests should Include itemized Information pn the crimes charged against the fugi¬ tives.

Promptly at his accustomed hour of 2 p.m., RockweU and a dozen of his followers In uniform, featuring swastika armbands, showed Up. at his usual rallying point on the Mall. He started by announcing that he would exer¬ cise his "constitutional right of free speech."

HE POINTED out that kids were brought Into Israel 12 years ago "with a sense of illegality." Lurle said that they have been rehabilitated and one such young "punk" has now developed a water desalination process, "through the help of Israel Bonds." Israel needs Jet planes and to build new hotels so they can com¬ pete," Lurle said, "and they get these things through Israel Bonds." LURIE POINTED out that the Arab situation te the middle East is good for Israel, He said th^t It makes her compete and keep striving and moving ahead to better things. In closing, the dynamic Lurie said, "Bread, security—these are the simple foundations of life a person needs." FOLLOWING his remarks, bond commitments were made and col¬ lected from the floor.

(joiden's two books, "Only In America," (over 2 million copies sold) and "For 2 Cents Plain" have been on the best seller lists. His newest book, "Enjoy, Enjoy!" will be released thjs month. THE FAMOUS author also has a syndicated column, which ap¬ pears weekly in the Chronicle. His rise to fame was quick and surprising to him. "In 1956, I owed the Internal Revenue Service $380 for income tax," Golden said. "I asked If I could pay it off $10 a week Today I have six auditors and two lawyers—Only In America." THE PLUMI', round faced au¬ thor is always full of antecdotes. Speaking ot the story of the Jew, he said, "Jews carry the burden of history and the story of the Jew is just beginning to be told." Goiden said that the fantastic story of Jews coming to America between 1880 and 1920 Is fascina¬ ting and will be toid. Up to now, he said, history stories have said, "Like us, we're as good as others." TO THIS Golden says, "Ugh!"

The new class will be started in the fall. The 15 converts were received into the faith In the first such group ceremony in Philadelphia. A private ceremony was held first and then a public ritual fol¬ lowed. The ceremony included the ritual Immersion of the converts in a pool In the synagogue. The five men had previously under¬ gone ritual circumcision. The group ranged in age from youths tn their twenties to grand¬ parents. Many of them were either married to Jews or plan¬ ning such marriages. Others said they were attracted to Judaism because of its teachings. The ceremony was conducted by Haibbls Morris V. I>embowltz and Morris S. Goodblatt. The two rabbis conducted an Institute of Judaism which the converts at¬ tended for 15 weeks of Instruc¬ tion.

ROCKWELL WAS told that he could use one of two other lo¬ cations in this city to exercise "free speech." He chose the near¬ est site, Judiciary Square, a rela¬ tively isolated area seven blocks away from the Mall. By the time Rockwell reached Judiciary Square with his group now numbering 20 men, including some In civilian dress, about 25 anti-Nazi has gathered there. Police, outnumbering the combin¬ ed number of Nazis and anti- IVazis, interposed themselves be¬ tween the two sides. Rockwell, mounting a red-painted tin buc¬ ket, started to speak. His plat¬ form, banners and other public- rally paraphernalia had been de¬ stroyed in yesterday's fighting. AS ROCKWELL started shout¬ ing "Ladles and Gentleman—and Jews," the anti-Nazis began hiss¬ ing, booing, and yelling anti-Nazi slogans. He tried for an hour and a half to speak, but never uttered more than two or three words without being outshouted by the anti-Nazi. The police allowed the latter to reply to every one of Rockwell's attempted Insults and jibes. Finally, Rockwell gave up. He and his group departed. Un¬ like yesterday, there had been no fighting. A number of brownshirted Nazis were severely beaten at Rockwell's rally yesterday.

Oltuskl's resig¬ nation was announced by President Dortlcos after a 13- hour cabinet session. . (Washington sources said that Oltuskl had been re¬ moved from the Government presumably because he had not been "aggressive enough" in application of the Castro revolutionary principles.) Oltuskl, who is about 30, is the son of an Orthodox Jew¬ iah couple residing in Santa Clara where hia father has a shoe factory.

Police were com¬ pelled to set up riot control con¬ ditions and to separate the esti¬ mated 50 persons who were ex¬ changing blows.

The Chief of the Washington Park Police and the Chief Pros¬ ecutor for the District of Co¬ lumbia were present.

Malse Your UJFC Pledge And Pay It Now BY JACOB CHEBNOF8KY JTA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, (JTA) — A New ifork court issued a temporary ban in New York state on the ac¬ tivities of George Rockwell's so- called American Nazi party and a warrant for his arrest on charges of disorderly conduct and incit¬ ing to riot. The temporary Injunction was sought by State Sen. Frank Pine i and Assemblyman Irwin Brown- ] stein of Brooklyn. It was Issued by Kings County Supreme Court Justice Louis Friedman. THE ORDER directed Rock¬ well to appear in court on Aug. 22 to show, cause why he should not be permanently enjoined from conducting activities in New York state and from using the swastika emblem. Justice Frledmsm said that the question of free speech was not involved in the cai.e. I Rockwell did not appear at the hearing, having notified the court' by telegram that the American Civil Liberties Union had advised him not to appear. The warrant for Rockwell's ar¬ rest also was issued by Justice Friedman, sitting as a magistrate. It was issued on a complaint signed by Lester Fahn, a member of the JWV of New York. The complaint was based on an in¬ cident In the New York County Supreme (3ourt building here re¬ cently when Rockwell was jostled by somo 150 persons for making anti-Semitic remarks during a television interview in tho ro¬ tunda of tho courthouse. THE NEW YORK Civil Liber¬ ties Union meanwhile said it would support legal action to es¬ tablish Rockwell's right to speak in New York City. The CLU board voted to provide counsel to Rockwell in his bid to get a per¬ mit for a rally in Union Square Park. Mayor Wagner, terming RockweU a "half-penny Hitler," rejected Rockwell's first bid for such a permit for a Fourth ot July raUy at the park. The statement of the CLU board said that "speech may not be suppressed because of the im- popularity of, or even intense hos¬ tility to, what the speaker says. Such suppression would mean weakening the protections of speech to a point where they are at the mercy of the lawless." THE BOARD said that It ex¬ pected that, in fulfillment "of their obligation to defend demo¬ cratic guarantees, law enforce. ment officers will maintain order" at a RockweU rally tn New York. The board added that In de¬ fending Rockwell, its attorney "will brook no Interference by him In the legal conduct of this caae." The statement added that the particular course of legal ac¬ tion had not yet been decided.
