ADL Meet Hears Of Trial Preparations BY LABBY SOPPEL, Chronicle Editor That Adolf Eichmann should be tried by an Israeli court is some¬ thing that will doubtlessly be discussed and argued tor a long while. But that the laraell government is being fair and that the press is being given every possible consideration by the government cainnot be disputed. So feels Sam Kamin, publisher of the Lima Citizen, who attended. the opening of the trial and appeared last Sunday afternoon before the Ohio-Kentucky regional board of the Antl-Defamatlon League to tell the story. KAMIN GAVE an eye-witness account, telling what la not print¬ ed in daily reports ot the trial as well as baaica ot the first three weeka of the trial. The trial, he explained, la being conducted In Hebrew with simul¬ taneous traslations in three other languages, provided via e a r- phones. After he received his cre¬ dentials, Kamln went to the Belt Haam, scene ot the proceedings. He wanted to look over the faci¬ lities before the trial began. "THEBE WERE soldiers with tommy guns on top of buildings around the Belt Haam," he said, "Upon entering you are sent to a checking room where you are frisked. Everyone is," Komin said, "The Israeli government went all out to provide everything," he said. "The press room htis facilities for 500 correspondents. There are four television receivers so cor¬ respondents can follow the trial when they are not In the court room. There ia a complete tele¬ type office and the wire services have direct sending faollltles.'' KAMIN EXFLAINXU) that each oorrespondent signed a pledge specifying that he could send out any story he liked about the trial, unoensored, as long as it was sent on the wire services in the press room. Reporters also promised not to send out any other story on these wires, buUt specifically tor the Eichmann trial, "Two Frenchmen broke this promise when the Beer spy story broke. They used the Eichmann trial facilities for thia and they were subsequently barred from the courtroom. "HOW LONG the trial goes oh, no one knowa," Kamln said. "The correspondents feci they have al¬ ready seen and heard enough; they know that Eichmann had to be brought to justice, that the judges are competent, and that Eichmann will have a fair trial." He concluded, "The Eichmann trial wUl reawaken and remind the world that taternatlonal law against genocide must be estab¬ lished to prevent such happenings in the future." KAMSV'S REMARKS were fol¬ lowed by a query on "Does the EUchmann Trial Create a Sub- (CooiinuuJ on ptgt 4) REGIONAL BOARD At the annual meeting ot the Ohio-Kentucky Regional i^ard of the Antl-Defamatlon League ot B'nai B'rith, held In Columbus last weekend, Herbert Wise ot Columbus was elected vice-chiUr- man ot tlie board and was reappointed as chairman ot the. ad- miniatrative committee.

He bolstered hia accusa¬ tions against Eichmann by intro¬ ducing an order from Gestapo Chief Hetarioh Hhnmler, giving to Eichmann the direct authoriza¬ tion tor the execution ot Jewish prisonera both inaide the campa and outside' the death factories. As the court trying Eichmann for crimes against the Jewish people and crimes against hu¬ manity opened Its fourth week, Hausner presented evidence which was seen as demoUshtag Eich¬ mann's claims that he was "only a transport officer" and acted as "a smaU sausage" merely carry¬ ing out orders trom higher-ups in the Nazi apparatus. THE DOCUMENTS aubmltted by Hausner, to which Robert Ser¬ vatiua, chief of defense counsel, promptly objected, opened a ses¬ sion ot the court tilled with more drama and choked with more emotion than seen here yet in thc quiet courtroom since Eich¬ mann went on trial here on April 11. For the first time since the trial opened, two persons in the visitors' gallery lost self-control and shouted out, one of them hiirl- ing the word "bloodhound" at Eichmarm. Both were ejected promptly, but not until one of them had fainted twice. PRESIDING Justice Moshe Lan¬ dau cautioned all In the courtroom to remain seated, and Instructed guards to remove the Interrup- tera, Eichmann, In his bullet¬ proof, glaaa-enclosed dock, tight¬ ened his steel-Uke stare, Dr, Ser¬ vatius paled visibly. In a side seat In the press section, where she had taken a place quietly, trying to act inconspicuously, Mrs, Golda Melr, Israel's Foreign Minister, wept bitterly. Four men were on the stand providing eyewitness accounts of events they had lived through under the Nazi regime in Galicia and in Poland. They testified after Hausner had quietly Introduced the documents showing Eich¬ mann's direct responsibility for murders. YAAOOV GUBFEIN, a former Hungarian Jew, took the witness shmd and started describing how he had escaped from a train tak¬ ing Jewa to the death camp at Belsen. A man In the visitors' gal¬ lery, moved by the testimony, shouted: "Bloodhound! My whole family waa killed," As court guards reached the man, he faint¬ ed. Then he regained conscious¬ ness, murmured "brothers—where are you?" and fainted again. MeanwhUe the trial went on, Gurfeln, who now lives In Tel Aviv, described how ISO Jews were rounded up at Sanok, Gali¬ cia, and herded into 10 railroad cars marked "eight horses, 40 men," He said there were 103 persons in the car into which he had been ordered. After three days and two nights at a camp at Zaslow without food and drtak and without sanitary facnities, ho said, the train started again, on its way to Belsen, All, he said, realized they were on the way to a death camp. Some of the Jews broke windows alfd"Teaped off the moving train, only to be shot down by membera ot the Nazi Elite Guard who had mounted machineguns on the roots of tho cars, GUBFEIN, WHO was then 21, (Contlnufld on pagt 4) VASE FORMED AT CENTER TO SECURE JOBS FOR TEENAGERS Are you a buslneasman who hires teenagers for part or full time help?
