The World's Week Compiled from JTA and WUP Reporfs LONDON (WUP)—A dispatch to the Times from Salis¬ bury, Southern Rhodesia, reports that former Prime Minis¬ ter Sir Roy Welensky has expressed fears th,Tt the UAR is feverishly preparing itself for an attack again.st Israel within the next two years. Sir Roy declared: "I believe President Nasser is de¬ termined to organize North Africa and all Arab countries into one bloc under his dominance. Once he has achieved this dominance and rearmed his country to his own satis¬ faction, I think his principle purpose is to make an attack on Israel," He added that he was convinced that "if an at¬ tack is made, there is going to be a bloody conflict." ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (JTA)—Eight members ot the American Nazi Party, who were arrested durjng a scuffle in front of Convention Hall, were given 90-day suspended Jail terms this week on condition they leave Atlantic City.

CLEVELAND (JTA)—The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States adopted a resolution at the organization's national conventnion here which called for a letter- writing campaign to win Congressional approval of a pro¬ posed amendment to the Constitution restoring prayers tind Bible reading to public schools.

High Holiday Season Time For Reflection The White House issued the following Jewish New Year's greeting, signed by President Johnson: "On the eve of Rosh 1-Iashonah and the High Holy Days, 1 extend to all my fellow Americans of the Jewish faith cordial greetings and my warmest wishes for a happy, tranquil and spiritually meaningful year. "The High Holy Days, with their penitential and exalting liturgy, constitute a perennial reminder of Judaism's profound dedication to the advancement of social justice and to the pur¬ suit of world peace. These are everlasting imperatives. Ours in an age of both social and spiritual revival. .Although marred at times by conflict among nations and bigotry within the family of man, it is nevertheless an age of new hojie—hope for the sick and the poor—hope for those who suffer persecu¬ tion—hope that our children will live, in a belter and brighter- world. "It is appropriate that all Americans join in the resolve to work for the uprooting of bigotry, discrimination and persecu- lion, and in prayers for peace." (Signed)' LYNDON U. JOHNSON * * 4> As we enter ihls season, the most solemn of the Jewish year, we pause for spiritual re-examination, and rededication to the goals of peace and freedom for all. Yet, as deeply as we desire peace in the broad sense of free¬ dom from world conflict and world tension, we must strive earnestly to achieve peace within ourselves. Our basic religious tenets and traditions give us the sources of inner peace; a sense of proportion, and understanding of our fellow man, and an abiding concern for ethical values. If we can succeed In relearning and strengthening these basis values within, the way to a better world vvill be clear. Millions Lost By Jewish Businessmen Philadelphia (JTA) — Jewish storekeepers and owners of other businesses suffered damages estimated at several millions of dollars in riolirig and looting by Negroes inhabiting a 125- block area that shook that North Philadelphia section. At least 80 per cent of the businesses wrecked and roblwd wore owned by Jews. .Although officials of the Jewish Coinmunlty Relations Coun¬ cil of Greater Philadelphia made strenuous efforts to counter such feelings, there were widespread criticisms among Jewish business¬ men in this city who contended that many of the attacks bore a decidedly anti-Semitic character. The critics pointed out that stores carrying signs "This is a Negro .store" were not harmed. One large Jewish-owned department store in the area had displayed a sign read¬ ing: "We employ 100 Negroes; don't let them lose their jobs." The store was thoroughly wrecked, and much of its stock was robbed. Jewish leaders, as well as city authorities, including police, pointed out that, though many of the busi¬ nesses victimized had been owned by Jews, there was no anti-Semit¬ ism as such involved, the attacks being directed simply ggainst white owners of enterprises in the midst of the Negro community of slum dwellers. A statement issued by Rabbi Theodore H. Gordon and Mrs.' Fanny C. Goldstein, vice-president of the Jewish Community Relations Council, and Jules Cohen, CRC executive director, declared: "The Jewish Community Rela¬ tions Council is particularly cons cerned over the plight of store¬ keepers whose places of business were wrecked and looted. Many of them are Jewish. This gives rise to charges of anti-Semitism which, even though they may be unwar¬ ranted, nevertheless do serious damage to good intergroup rela¬ tions wtiich are essential to the welfare of this city." Stating that the rioting had been the work of "hoodlums," the CRC officers called on the police to avail themselves of State and Fed¬ eral aid to put down the rioting and maintain ordep.. Pointing out that the rioting here, like the recent disturbances in other northern cit¬ ies, had been condemned by Negro religious and civic leaders, the CRC officials maintained: "The disturbances wiU prove to be a serious setback to the civil rights movement. Hoodlums must not be permitted to nullljfy man^ years of dedicated work by dty officials and agencies; and by pri- (contlnued on page 4) OHIO AREA YOUNG LEADERSHIP MEETING WILL HEAR NATIONAL LEADERS SPEAX The Young Leadership—Ohio Area Conference, sponsored by the UJA and the Council of Jewish Federations, will be held Saturday evening, Sept. 12 through Sunday.
