Neiison last week ordered that two separate charges of disturbing the peace pending against Gewge Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party, be tried jointly today.

Reported Rejecting Israeli Conga Help PARIS (JTA)—Israel had offered to contribute military units to the United Nations force In the Congo, but U.N. Secretary Genera:! Dag Ham¬ marskjold rejected the offer so as not to irk the Arabs, the newspaper "L'Expresse" re¬ ported here. Hammarskjold, the Paris newspaper declared, yielded to the insistence of United Arab Republic President Gamal Abdel Nasser and fi¬ nally accepted 500 U.A.R. sol¬ diers "because he feared that, otherwise.

REW was inaugurated last year by Rabbi David Stavsky during the week between Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur. Some 500 persons were In attendance fbr the lectures and discussion groups. "THE PHENOMENAL re-awakening of traditional Judaism has brought a new thirst for knowledge as the Jew of today ponders the problems of life, death and Im mortality, seeking to strengthen the ties with his heritage," said Robert Lieberman, co-chairman of the program this year. Mrs. Al Shames, chairman of REW, said, "As a result of the intense interest generated In last year's program. Rabbi Stavsky conducted weekly adult education classes at the synagogue. Similar classes are being planned for the coming fall and winter seeison." A CX)lvnV0TTEE has been ap¬ pointed to formulate a series of lectures, seminars, films and dis¬ cussion groups, with the high standards and purposes set by last year's REW program. "The American born Jew is seeking a positive and intelligent identification with his faith bring¬ ing about an unparalleled trend to traditional Judaism," Rabbi Stavsky said. The period between Rosh Ha¬ shonah and Yom Kippur is known as the Days of Awe, and for cen¬ turies has served as a special sea¬ son of reflection and self evaluar tion. REW once again comes to re-awaken in man, his quest for God. IN MANITOBA Talk Of Grants For Schools MONTREAL (JTA)—The Canadian Jewish Congress haa not officially taken a position on the question of state aid to Jewish schools, Saul Hayes, Its executive vice-president, said here, but he sharply criticized proposals to this effect on philosophical and practical grounds, Hayes' statement came in comment on recommendations by a royal commission in Manitoba that the province make financial grants to private schools there. The recommendations provoked a lively debate in the Winnipeg Jewish community, with some ele¬ ments strongly supporting them and favoring government support for the Jewish schools there. HAYES STRESSED his belief that the issue of Separation ol church and state was not the prin¬ cipal issue Involved and noted that "one needs not rely on tills creed ot separation of Church and State, however, to have a deep philosophical concern for the value of a public school system and to believe that State m.onie8 ought not to be used for a hodge-podge of educational systems." The Congress ollioial also warn¬ ed that government financial aid would materially alter the charac¬ ter of the Jewish schools. He pointed out that "tha specific practical question is how Jewish schools would operate If tho gov¬ ernment supported them. To my mind, the issue is clear. THERE WOULD be such an interference by the Department of Education, which would insist on a certain curriculum; wliich would measure the amount of time that would have to be given tor the complete curriculum on the basis of what is given in the public schools; and that would leave all other subjects, such as Hebrew and Jewish history, to extra-curricular time-tables. ''I believe dogmatically that, if the Jewish schools accept govern¬ ment monies, within a few years the whole character of the schools will be chang[ed, and the Jewish day school will be back to the old system of Jewish subjects after school hours," he declared. "Then the whole fuss will be about hav¬ ing Jewish children in a building owned by Jews, but nothing else." HAYES NOTED that the Ca¬ nadian Jewish (Congress had never taken an official stand on the question of Jewish day schools. He conceded that "there Is a gen¬ eral feeling that the day schools are good ideas, but only for gifted children, being those who can take a full course according to the curriculum of the Department of Education In any given province and who can add to this during the school hours, Jewish history, Hebrew and such other distinctly Jewiah subjects as give a school a Jewish character." He added the vfew, however, that "for people who want this for their children, either the com¬ munity should pay for the gifted children, or parents should do so, or as Is now the case in Jewish high schools, a combination of both. To ask government to do so may or may not run counter to the Congress philosophy, but there la no known or stated position as yet." NIXON ORDERS NO 'RELIGIOUS ISSUE' NEW YORK (JTA)—Vice Pres¬ ident Nixon's headquarters Issued instruptions to "all persons con¬ nected" with the Republican Presidential campaign to keep the "reiigious issue" completely out of the campaign. The Instructions Wore signed by Leonard W. Hall, general chairman, and Robert H. Finch, director of the Nixon cam¬ paign. The oMer, which was sent to ail local campaign workers from coast to coast, emphasized that Nixon insists that his sapporters give "the most careful and spe¬ cific adhereneo" to tho following directive: "1. No person or organization conditioning their support on re¬ ligious grounds will be recognized in this campaign. "2. There shall be no discussion of the religious issue in any litera¬ ture by any volunteer group or party organization supporting the Vice President and no literature of this kind from any source should be made available at cam¬ paign headquarters or otherwise distributed. "3. Staff and volunteer workers should avoid discussing the 're¬ ligious issue' either informally or casually since this might be con¬ strued as some kind of deliberate campaign." when Rockwell will also face sim¬ ilar charges arising out of his party rally on July 24 at a time when he was free on bond on the first charge. MEANWHILE THE "Washing¬ ton Daily News" reported that Judge Neiison had received an¬ onymous threatening letters and phono calls. The bulk of these communica¬ tions threatening "to get him" was received after he committed tho American Nazi Party leader for psychiatric observation. The judge apparently guarded this carefully from being known while he was still on the bench, He re¬ tired from office last week. IT WAS NOT known who was assigned to today's case. (In Now York, the Civil Ljher- tios Union said it would support a petition filed by Rockwell with the State Supreme Court to force New York City to let him hold a public meeting in Union Square. The city had denied him a permit for such a meeting on July 4 after a wave of public protest.) MEANWHILE, the Nazi "fueh¬ rer" filed a libel action against the Washington Dally News, claiming damages of $110,000 for a series of articles the newspaper published on Rockwell and his followers. In publishing the articles, the newspaper expressed the opinion that the best way to deal with Rockwell was "to keep him In the opon where everyone can see him and his Nazi demagoguery for what it is." IN THESE articles, a reporter for the newspaper who had joined Rockwell's party under an as¬ sumed name, charged that Rock¬ well and his troopers had delib¬ erately agitated the audience into a,riot at his July 3 rally. The reporter, George Clifford, described what happened there, asserting that one of Rockwell's aides, and thert Rockwell himself, insulted the audience and pro¬ voked it until, finally, the crowd broke through the ropes. In the meantime, Roger C. Foss, one of Rockwell's troopers, has registered as a foreign agent with Steve Stellman Is Selected By WMNI Steven StoUman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Stellman, 3019 Templeton Rd., has been selected by radio station WMNI, as Its teenage talent, to compete Aug. 26, at the Ohio State Fair. .

Treasure Reported Buried By Nazi LONDON (JTA)—A fortune In gold, looted from Nazi vic¬ tims and estimated to be worth at least $280,000,000, Is believed to have been burled in the Austrian Alps by Nazi leaders including Adolf Eich¬ mann it was reported by the Bonn correspondent of the Sunday Times. Local residents of the Styr- ian mountain village where Eichmann sought refuge after the ^ar, are wondering, ac¬ cording to the correspondent, if the Nazi war criminal now awaiting trial in Israel, will at last disclose the secret of the Blau Aim (Mountain Pasture) where witnesses say he burled the treasure. The hoard, they believe is partly the proceeds -V- of ransom which Eichmann exacted from thousands of his Jewish victims. the Department of Justice. He was required to do so after It was (iis- covered that he had received $500 from a Soviet diplomat who had urged him to get a job with the federal government. The Soviet diplomat, Valentin M. Ivanov was expelled from the U.S. on Aug. 13, KENNEDY TO MOVE TO END CONFLICT NEW YORK (JTA)—The Im¬ portance of bringing about an Arab-Israel conference for the purpose of achieving peace, as well as of taking Immediate steps to eliminate Arab diacrlmlnation against American Jews, was era- phaslzed by Senator John F. Ken- nedy. Democratic Presidential nominee, In a letter addressed to Dr. Israel Goldstein, Zionist lead¬ er who la also honorary vice presi¬ dent of the Liberal Party. He pledged to work in this direction. "The central, overriding prob¬ lem in the Middle Eaat la tha problem of achieving peace In the area," he wrote. "The persistence of the Arab states in maintaining a 'state of war' against Israel ia clearly the cause of their dla- crlmlnations. "The starting point, therefore, for an effective, realistic Ameri¬ can policy designed to preserve peace and extend the free way of life in the Middle East Is to oome to grips with this threshold ob¬ stacle. American diplomacy must be directed to ending the 'state of war' in the Middle East, and this undertaking should have a Very high priority in a Democratic Ad- rhlnistration."
