TEIi AVIV; (.ITA)—The Mapai Party leadership decided to postpone "for technical reasons" a previously announced hearing before the party's Court of Honor against ex- Premier David Ben-Gurion and six other leaders of his Israel Labor Li.st. The "big seven" of the .secessionist group had been ordered expelled from the party. However, they claimed that the order was not valid because It referred to them as members who had "expelled themselves" by forming an opposition list for the forthcoming elections to Israel's Knesset (Parliament). In response to those claims, the leadership had planned to bring the.seven before the party's Court of Honor for final action.

BRAILLE MAFTIAS ARE AVAIUBLE FOR BAR MITZVAH OF BLIND YOUTHS NEW YORK CITY—To aid blind Jewish boys and girls in their preparation for Bar Mitzvah or Bas Mitzvah. the Jewish Braille Institute of America has published in Hebrew and English braille the 67 Maftirs used throughout the year according to the specific date of the Bar Mitz¬ vah ceremony. PREPARATION OF the necessary plates and the processing in quantities of these 67 braille Maftirs was made possible through a gift of $6,500 from the Women's Branch of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America of which Mrs. Nathan H. Wadler Is president and Mrs. Isidor Freedman is National Braille chairman. The organization is ono of the three major supporters of the Jewish Braille Institute, the oUier.s being the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods and the Na¬ tional Women's League of the United Synagogue of America. THE MASTER COPY for each of the braille Maftirs was transcribed by Mrs. Irving A. Weingart of Des Moines. Iowa, one of the world's outstanding Hebrew braillists. Eliezer Katz and Miss Donna Zin- cover proofread the Hebrew and English pages. With the help of the Jewish Braille Institute, 125 bliiid Jewish boys and girls throughout the country have t>een fully prepared for Bar Mitzvah or Bas Mitzvah in the past few years. .The Institute provides these children with various Hebrew and English religious text¬ books in braille, without charge, and when they know Hebrew braille thoroughly they are ready to be intcg'ratcd into their own religious schools with slighted children. Pro¬ duction of the Maftirs in braille is the latest step in this program. SERVING THE CULTURAL and religious needs of the Jewish blind, the Jewish Braille Institute main¬ tains a free circulating library of more than 15.000 braille volumes and an extensive collection of full- length recorded "talking books" at its headquarters, 48 East 7'lth St., New York City. It publishes the "Jewi^sh Braille Review." a monthly literary maga¬ zine, and also issues Hebrew-En¬ glish braille prayer boolis and the Bible in Hebrew braille. Mrs. Harry J. Finke is president of the Institute and Dr. Jacob Freid is the execu¬ tive director. Israel Awaits First German Envoy TEL AVIV, (JTA)—Tensions continued in Israel this week over the presence of an advance group ot the staff of the planned West Germany Embassy and over the expected arrival of the first West German Am¬ bassador to Israel and the Embassy counsellor. The advance group consisted of Herbert Kradt. W. Steinleitner and H. Scdlaozer. who took temporary quarters at the Sheraton Hotel here. Police posted a 24-hour guard at the hotel. The West German officials said they expected the arrival next week of Ambassador Rolf Pauls and Counsellor Alexander Toeroek. ISRAELI OFFICIALS chose the Israel Police Band to play the West German national anthem while Pauls presents his credentials but some other band will have to per¬ form. All musical instruments of the police band were destroyed in a fire in the band's building. Police be¬ gan an investigation to determine whether the fire was accidental or deliberate. A number of Tel Aviv University students announced they would hold a protest rally on the day of Paul's arrival at the Sheraton where the West German diplomats will stay until they find permanent resi¬ dences. They have been offered the 27th floor of Israel's tallest sky¬ scraper, the Migdal Shalom, for the Bonn Embassy, an offer it Is be¬ lieved they will accept. THE ENVOY and the counsellor continued to be subjects of attention both in Israel and West Germany. Israel Foreign Ministry sources said that the Foreign Ministry had ac¬ cepted Dr. Toeroek as coijnsellor after elearirjg him of rumors of being linked with the Nazi period. The sources said that he was never a member of the Nazi party or of its counter-part in Hungary when he served as a Hungarian diplomat in Berlin during the wgr. The check showed that he had never been in¬ volved in any actions against Jews. At the same time, the West Ger¬ man Foreign Ministry denied in Bonn that Toerock had been in¬ volved in any way with the" Nazi program ot deporting Hungarian Jews to death camps. The Bonn Ministry confirmed reports that the former Hungarian diplomat, who became a naturalized German citizen in 1950, served in Hungary's Berlin Embas.sy during the time the Nazis were murdering Jews by the thousands. The reports ema¬ nated from Israel, arousing further opposition there to the presence of the West Germans. But the Ministry said Toeroek had no relationships of any kind with either thej, Nazi party or the Hungarian Fascist party. THE DIPLOMAT himself denied the reports, telling the Jewish Tele¬ graphic Agency: "I have never been a Nazi. I was never associated with any poUtical right-wing or fascist group," But a number of West German newspapers contended that the West German Foreign Ministry should have been more alert to the sensi¬ tivity of Israeli Jews, many of them survivors of the Nazi genocide campaign, to all matters relating to Nazism, in selecting its first dip¬ lomatic representatives to Israel. However, the press and broad¬ casting services in West Germany gave wide publicity to the Israel Government announcement that the diplomat had been cleared of all such suspicions. The Israel an¬ nouncement reportedly was based on a full report sent to Jerusalem by the Israel Mission in Cologne which made a complete investiga¬ tion.
