In Europe the num¬ ber assisted in 1964 was Slightly more than 89,000, an increase of 3,000 over 1963. In Israel the number aided was almost 93.000, an in¬ crease of approximately 6,500 over the previous year. In the Moslem countries the num¬ ber assisted dechned by almost 20.000, from 84,000 to 6,150, reflect¬ ing the continued movement of Jews out of North Africa, Thej greatest increase was in a special reUef-in- transit program for refugees; 179,000 were assisted in this program as compared with 148,000 in 1963. These figures were reported in the JDC Statistical Abstract issued recently. The Abstract, the 19th annual edition, was prepared by the JDC Research Departrrient under the direction of Dr. Boris Sapir. In a foreword to the Abstract, Moses A, Leavitt, JDC Executive Vice-Chairman. commenting on the increase in the nurnber of. needy Jews aided in Europe said: "In Europe the influx of refugees from North Africa to France and from Eastern Europe to Italy continued on a larger scale than one year be¬ fore; over 17,000 from Tunisia and 3,120 from Morocco were assisted in 1964 in one form or another by French Jewish organizations co¬ operating with'JDC." The Abstract reports that JDC aid in 1964 in all parts of the world in¬ cluded cash relief fof 40,'}40; feed¬ ing, 63,500; assistance in 28 homes for the aged accommodating 4,605 residents; medical care in 57 in- situtions for 36,870 patients; aid in 34 institutions for 1,920 children and young people; support of 237 schools and kindergartens with an enroll¬ ment of 47,500 students; other cul¬ tural and religious instiutions bene¬ fitting 35,660 (including 435 students receiving stipends); and 5,202 re¬ construction loans granted by 38 JDC-supported institutions with a total loan value of $3,666,869. Almost 21,000 received vocational training in JDC-supported ORT training units in Israel. Another 19,000 received vocational training in Europe, the Moslern countries and India. Other special JDC assistance in¬ cluded the distribution of United States donated food supplies to a monthly average of 85,389 men, women and children in eight coun¬ tries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Supplies distri¬ buted under the United States Food- for-Peace program totaled close to 13,500,000 pounds and was valued at almost $800,000.

The majority thus rejected Ben-Gurion's demands that he lead the "Mapai slate for the forthcom¬ ing Parliamentary elections, pre¬ sumably with Eshkol stepping down as Premier in a Mapai electoral victory. The majority stand was ham¬ mered out at meetings of the Mapai Bureau with all Mapai Cabinet Ministers attending, a meeting of the Mapai secretariat and later a special drafting committee. At the end of the discussions, a statement was issued calling for unity to prevent a split, rejecting minority charges of "moral de¬ terioration in the party as "un¬ founded and without justification." The statement.condemned threats against the party's integrity either by calls to dissent or by establish¬ ment of a separate list for the elec¬ tions. A few hours before the meeting, the minority group had heard a specific call from Ben-Gurion to his followers to leave the party and set up a separate election list. It was then that he fired charges of "moral deterioration" of the party under Eshkol's leadership. It was reported then that the minority had decided to wait until July 1 for a leadership approach and that if by that date no solution to the leadership crisis was found, to proceed with an independent list of candidates for the Knesset elec¬ tions. The tiny Israeli Communist party also faced a split today. One fac¬ tion, which is pro-Israel, is headed by Samuel Mikunis and Moshe Sneh. Thd other is more pro-Arab and more extremist and is headed by A. Wilner and Toufik Tubi. Each faction has called a "gen¬ eral convention," one in Haifa and one in Tel Aviv, on June 23. Each faction was busy trying to per¬ suade delegates of overseas Com¬ munist parties, invited to Israel for the occasion, to attend their conven¬ tion.

The World's Week Compiled from JTA and WUP Reporfs NEW YORK (JTA)—Reports that Pope Paul VI has ordered the removal from the agenda of the forthcoming session of the Ecumenical Council, the Vatican declaration repudiating the deicide charge against Jews, were circulat¬ ing in Rome, according to a dispatch in the New York Times. The dispatch said that a spokesman for Amleto Cardinal Gicognani, Vatican Secretary of State and head of the Co¬ ordinating Commission which controls the Council agenda", declined to comment on the report that the Pope had sent the Commission a letter instructing it to withdrawn the dec¬ laration on Jews and other non-Christian religions from Council debate.

JERUSAlwEM (JTA)—Israeli officials here declined to indicate whether Israel would approve Rolp Pauls, a West German career diplomat, as his coi^ntry's ambassador to Israel, after a statement yesterday in Bonn by Chancellor Ludwig El-hard taking a firm position over Israel's reported objections to the choice of Pauls, a career officer in the Ger¬ man army during World War II.
