ComplUd from JTA lUporta IN .IKRU8AX.EM, President Zalman Shazar and mem¬ bers of the Israel Cabinet will welcome Pope Paul VI at a small archeological museum building at Meggidlo, in north- errr Israel, where the Pontiff will cross into Israel from Jordan. The Pope will visit Christian holy places in Israel on Jan. 5. • Initially, it was reported the Pope planned to cross through the Mandelbaum Gate from Jordan-held old Jeru¬ salem into new Jerusalem, Israel's capital. It was assumed that the change in plans stemmed from Arab pressures and possible Vatican doubts that the original plans might have been interpreted as a Vatican recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. IN. NEW YpltK the United Jewish Appeal announced that the Interml Revenue Service has ruled that contribu¬ tions made to the UJA are and continue to be tax deductible under the recent ruling relating to charitable funds used abroad. The Internal Revenue Service approval covers con- ¦ tributions by individuals, corporations and foundations. IN LONDON Prime Minister Sir Alex Douglas-Home declared in the House of Commons that he was satisfied that th& government could give to the 49 British firms blacklisted recently by Jordan and Syria "all the help that they need." The Premier made the statement in reply to a question from a Labor MP who had asked what steps the Premier was taking to coordinate the activities of the various govern¬ ment departments affected by the blacklisting. He said he agreed that the blacklisting actions were inconsistent with the principles of the United Nations charter and deplorable. Protest Made USIA Yielding To Arabs Washington fJTA)—Four Congressmen this week requested a report from th'e United States Information Agency on the' deletion from a documentary for overseas distribution of a scene showing a rabbi. Jewish organization spokesmen charged that the deletion was made to avoid offending Arab nations, a charge that the USIA denied in three statements in 24 hours. The Congressmen were Sen. Kenneth D. Keating, New York Jewish Educators Form Cols. Council A Council of Jewish Educators was organized at a meet¬ ing held on Dec. 3. Membership in the Council is open to pro¬ fessional educators holding executive positions in- Jewish edu¬ cational institutions in Columbus. Professional Jewish educators representing the following institutions are members of the Council of Jewish Educators: Agudas Achim Congregation, Irving Stern, educational di¬ rector; Beth Jacob CongrPgation, Rabbi t^vid Stavsky and Martin Schecter, principal of the religious school; Columbus Hebrew School, Daniel Harrison, principal; Jewish Republican; Representatives Eman liel Celler, Brooklyn Democrat; Leonard Farbstein, New York Democrat; and Samuel S. Stratton. Schenectady Democrat. The 30- minule documentary was prepared gratis by television writers Rod Serling and William Froug. Entitled "Let Us Continue," it deals with the views on major public issues of President Johnson. The denials by the USIA contain¬ ed two points. The first was that an opening for the docurrientary, based on possible shots of various religious services had been con¬ sidered and dropped. The' second was that the USIA had no censor- stiip policy and that it had, in fact, repeatedly distributed films throughout the world, including the Middle East, specifically including Israeli and Jewish personalities and events. Rep. Cellar called the explana¬ tion "wcasol worded" and said "it will not wash." He asserted that a photo of a rabbi was "deliber¬ ately deleted because of Arab ob¬ jections. This' is a shocking per¬ formance." He accused the agency of censorship. Sen. Keating said he had checked into the charges and learned that the USIA had "certain general policies with re¬ gard to scenes which they feel would offend the viewing audiences in different countries." Jewish organizations protesting the incident included the American Jewish Congress, the Central Con¬ ference of American Rabbis, the Union of American Hebrew Congre¬ gations and the New York Board of Samuel SAM'L OPPENHEIMER GOLS. ISRAEL BOND GHAIRMtN FOR 19E4 Mr. Samuel L. Oppenhepner, president of the Ohio Technical In¬ stitute, .and prominent community worker and leader, has been narn- ed Columbus comrHtinity chairman for State of Israel Bonds for 1964.

Mr. ^ Oppenheimer resides with his wife; Faye, and their two children at 340 S. Kellner Rd. In accepting the position as Is¬ rael Bond chairman, Mr. Oppen¬ heimer said, "By supplying . a steady stream of development capital, Israel Bonds have helped to release the creative and con¬ structive energies and abilities of the people of Israel. A population that numbered about 1,250,000 in 1951 has grown to more than 2,340,000 in 1963, yet the coun¬ try has managed not only to main¬ tain its standard of living but to raise it to the point where it is far higher than that of any other coun¬ try in the region."

Despite the denials, Mr. Serling was quoted as sustaining the cen¬ sorship charge. Dr. Joachim Prinz, president of the American Jewish Congress, said he had talked to Mr. Sorling' and he quoted the play¬ wright,' who acted as producer-di¬ rector for the documentary, as say¬ ing that in a preliminary n^eeting with various USIA officials, he and Mr. Froug proposed the use of "still-frame pictures of American faces" to dramatize the "feeling of universality" amongN^ericans,- Dr. Prinz quoted Mr. Serling as saying: "We were told by the of¬ ficials that at no time could 'we indicate the face of a rabbi or a synagogue or indeed anything re¬ lating to the Jewish faith. This unfortunately was a policy prob¬ lem involving the Middle Eastern countries. We were told that to in¬ clude such shots in the film would prevent its being shown in the IVIid- dlc East, since those countries would refuse to show any. of the films." The first denial was made by Donald M. Wilson, deputy USIA di¬ rector, who said no censorship had been exerted by the USIA. Subse¬ quently a spokesman said that "a discussion, of distribution problems in the Middle East might have been brought up as a secondary issue" but he too insisted that agency poli¬ cy did not include "censorship of any kind." The third statement re¬ iterated the depial.of censorship and amplified the list of films dis¬ tributed by the agency containing Israeli and Jewish material Shown above are the newly installed officers of Beth Jacob Congregation. They are, standing from left to right: Joe Swartz, treasurer; Louis M: Levin, chairman of the board; Morris Weinstock, gabbai rishon; Saul Goldmeier, gabbai sheni.
