The widow of Medgar Evers, Mississippi NAACP leader killed In Jackson Wednesday, was sent a check this week for $1,000 by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith "to stimu¬ late the fund for the education of the three Evers children.'' Dore Sohary, national chairman of the league, said in an accompanying letter to Mrs. Elvers that "nothing we can say win alter the tragic fact of your husband's death. A number of our friends have joined, spontane¬ ously, to help the fund. It is our way of saying, 'We, too, grieve. We, too, shall fight on in his memory.'" SCHARY SAID that the gift was being announced "in the fervent hope that others would follow suit in an overwhelming show of sym¬ pathy for the cause in which Mr. Evers died." He also expressed the hope that "by the time the Evers children are ready for college, the prejudice and moral crises of our time wiU belong to history." IN Washington D.C. Evers will be memorialized by the Jpwish War Veterans of the United States of America at its forthcoming national convention through an action pro¬ gram "to bring truth to the Amer¬ ican promise." In a letter of sympathy from JWV Commander Morton L. London to Mrs. Evers, the commander made known this stateinent and that his organization has urged Con¬ gressional leaders to enact the President's program "to help sweep from Jackson, Mississippi and every other community, north and south, the debris of the past." THE VETERANS leader pledged the backing of members ih all fifty States for integration actions. London said Evers' assassination was "no less reprehensible than the acts of the Nazis of Germany in their genocidal mania." HE FOUND it "fitting that Mr. Evers, a fellow veteran, is to be interred in Arlington Nationtil Cem¬ etery, there to rest for all time with those others who fought and died for freedom." The JWV commander said that Evers "served the cause of demo¬ cracy and his death was in the Une of duty just as much as those who died on the battlefield so that our nation might live-" FEW RESERVATIONS LEFT FOR TRIBUTE DINNER FOR RHODES Isadore Topper, chairman ot the Gov.

BEN-GURION'S RESIGNATION GOMES AS SHOCK; INDICAe'END OF AN ERA' Jerusalem (JTA) — Finance Minister Levi Eshkol, who has been mentioned as the probable successor to Prime jllinister David Ben-Gurlon following the latter's resignation, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that "the speedy formation of a government is the main task," adding that the present moment was therefore not propitious to enter protracted negotiations about widening the present coalition. Mapai quarters, meanwhile, con¬ firmed that it was the intention of the party leaders to retain the pres¬ ent composition ot the Cabinet, al¬ though some shifting will be neces¬ sary since Mr. Eshkol is nqt expect¬ ed to keep his Treasury post if he assumes the premiership. PINHAS SAPIR, Minister Of Com¬ merce and Industry, is considered the likely successor for the Finance post, in which case a new Mapai member will be named to replace him. The question of the Defense port¬ folio is not yet clear. There is some inclination to free the new Pre¬ mier of the Defense post in order to enable him to de.yote all his time to the premiership. But the naming of a Defense Minister may raise complications. While Deputy De¬ fense Minister Shimon Peres ap¬ pears be the Ukely cohtender for the post, he does not have the sup¬ port of all the Mapai leadership, with some favoring Agriculture Jfinister Moshe Dayan. HOWEVER,. since Ahdut Avoda circles have intimated that Ihey may ask fdr the Defense portfolio; to avoid complications, -he post may be left with the new Premier as wai the case under Mr. Ben- Gurion. Reacting to Premier Ben-Gurion's resignation, a spokesman for Ahdut Avoda said that "we have no choice but to respect Ben-Gurion's wish." A Mapam spokesman said that while his party was taken aback by the resignation, it is not sorry. A spokesman for the National Relig¬ ious party expressed hope that the crisis would end quickly, adding that his party would welcome a widening of the coalition. ELIMELECH RIMALT, leader of the Liberal party, declared that "if Mapai, does not reinstate a stable government in the shortest possible Levi Eshkol period, it will prove that Mapai has lost the right to lead the country." The Liberals, he said, would not join the Cabinet at the present stage. / Education Minister Abba Eban described Mr. Ben-Gurion's resig¬ nation as a disquieting prospect with serious implications for the Jewish people as a whole. Addres¬ sing the first session of a Dialogue between American Jewish and Is¬ raeli cultural leaders sponsored by the American Jewish Congress, Mr. Eban said the withdrawal of Mr. Ben-Gurion's leadership "com¬ mands us to move with full speed for restoration ot stability." MR. BEN-GURION, he said, had a special gift for awakening and mobilizing national energies. The security of the nation and its inter¬ national policies have been directed by him as an authority largely transcending party barriers and commanding a broad consensus of trust," Mr. Eban declared. It is in the realm of security and interna¬ tional relations that Israel faces (contlnuad on pago 4} RAHEl SHAZAR, WIFE OF NEW ISRAEU PRESIDENT IS PIONEER WOMEN LEADER Rahel Katznelson Shazar, the wife of the new president of the State of Israel, is being proudly claimed by nearly 50,000 Pioneer Women members throughout the United States and Canada. And, according to Mrs. Sidney Leff, National President of the Pioneer Women's Organization, they have ample reason for calling her "their very own." "For more than 40 years," Mrs. Leff said, "Rahel Shazar has been asociated with our sister organization in Israel, Moetzet Hi poalot (the Working Women's Coun cil), which is Israel's largest an 1 most powerful women's organizi tion. "SHE WAS ope of our founding members," Mrs. Left said, "and served during most of her life on the Executive of Moetzet Hapoalot- Pioneer Women, first as its General Secretary and later as editor of the leading women's maga^ne in Israel, "Dvar Hapoelet. which she began in 1934. Pioneer Women were also honored to welcome her as a spe¬ cial en ssary to our organization from Israel in 1932. "An outstanding literary critic, essayist, editor, teacher, and femi¬ nist, she was one of the first women in Israel to give expression to the new values being created by Is¬ rael's early women pioneers," Mrs. Leff continued.
