In the raid, 40 Jordanian houses were blown up by the Israelis, a Jordanian police station was demolished, one Jordan, Arab Legion officer was fatally injured, dy ing later in an Israeli hospital, two other members of the Arab Legion were captured, 15 Arab Legion trucks carrying reinforce¬ ments were burned, and a Jor¬ danian plane was downed when Jordan sent aircraft into the air to fight the Israelis. Israel lost one soldier, an army major, who was Idlled while leading his troops, and 10 Israelis were wounded in the action. PRIME MINISTER Levi Esh¬ kol, joined by Israel's chief of staff. Gen. Yitzhak Rabin, re¬ ported on the repris£il to the Cabinet here. Mr. Eshkol told the Cabinet: "This raid, in which 40 houses were blown up by Israeli forces, should demonstrate the fact that quiet must reign on both sides of tiie borders along their entire lengths." MR. ESHKOL referred to the two most recent terrorist raids coming from the Jordanian side — one a month ago, when two Jerusalem apartment buildings suffered-mine-exxplosions -neac4 the Jordanian border, and the last one, early Friday morning, when the three Israeli soldiers were killed and 10 wounded in the Hebron Hills. '"These two acts of sabotage," he said, "were perpetrated by infiltrators coming from Joi?dan. The reiid against Jordan was or¬ dered in accord with the Cabinet statement, made in the Knesset (Parliament) a month ago, and appr'oved by the Knesset, in wliich Israel Warned that it holds responsible those countries from which or through which perpe¬ trators of such acts come. Tliis is beside the special responsibil¬ ity of Syria for guiding the at¬ tackers and ordering the at¬ tacks." THE MINE explosion occurred at dawn last Friday, less than a mile south of the Jordemian border, about sfac miles north of the new Israeli town ot Arad. The Israeli soldiers were travel¬ ing a dirt road which had been inspected the day before, and found safe for patrol. Suddenly, the patrol car ran over a mine, detonating it. The mine was fomid to be of the same tyi>e that was used by infiltrators from the Syrian border a month ago, in Galilee, when four Israeli soldiers were Itilled. Israel FUes Complaint Ag^nst Jordan with Sectirity Council Tanks from the site of the Hebron area incident were found leading to the nearby Jordanian border. Israel filed a complaint agahist the raid immediately with the Jordan-Israeli Mixed Armistice (Commission. (A simi¬ lar complaint on that action was tiled in the Security Ctouhcil of the United Nations by Israeli Ambasseidor Michael S. Comay, who charged Jordan with violat¬ ing the 1949 Israeli-Jordanian armistice agreement. However, the Israeli complaint did not call for a meeting of the U.N. Secur¬ ity CouncU.)

Plans To Represent Rockwell (CHICAGO, (JTA)—The Chi¬ cago chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union confirmed it planned to represent George Rockwell, head of the American Nazi party, hi liis appeal against a permanent injunction barring him from staging marches or demonstrations in Jewish neigh¬ borhoods during Jewish holidays. Federal District CXiurt Judge Sam Perry issued a temporary injunction on petition of the Jew¬ ish War Veterans just before the High Holy Days and made it permanent after tKe holiday. Jay Miller, ACXU chapter executive dh-ector said his chapter had not sought the assignment but had agreed to the request of Rock¬ well's attorneys. MILLER SAID the appeal would be based on Rockwell's right to freedom of speech and assembly under the First Amend¬ ment. He said the ACXU attor¬ neys would also try to convince a higher federal court that a Nazi march would not disrupt religious services if the Nazis did not actually enter a syna¬ gogue or block access to it. Miller said,the ACLU felt the injunction was "a bad prece¬ dent" and that the ACLU was interested "in constitutional' Is¬ sues, not Rockwell." Council has announced that a [.special-effort, :is_ia-..he ,jnade,jat this time to redeem pledges made to its 1966 campaign and so make cash available for critical needs of the United Jewish Appeal and its constituent agencies, and tor the local and national agencies. The cash drive will continue to December 31. The drive fits in with the nationwide effort in which the UJA seeks the mo¬ bilization and remittance of $35,000,000 in cash funds. SAIVTUEL M. MELTON, treas¬ urer ot the United Jewish Fund and Council, announced that lead¬ ership m all of the major divi¬ sions tind sections have been selected and are now at work. "The purpose of the drive," Mr. Melton stated, "is to turn every dollar of every pledge into cash so that we can help the United Jewish Appeal meet acutely pressing financial obliga¬ tions for the relief, rescue ^and rehabilitation of more than 800,000 needy Jewish men, wo¬ men and children in Israel and 30 other countries throughout the world, and to make funds avail¬ able to all our agencies. Overseas the funds are urgent¬ ly needed and a contributing fac¬ tor to the emergency. Melton said, was the ending of German reparations payments which for twelve years had contributed $18,000,000 annually to the bud¬ gets of UJA's constituent agen¬ cies — the Jdnt Distribution Committee and flie Jewish Agen¬ cy for Israel — and the United HIAS Service. THB $7,000,(M)0 in annual in¬ come now lost to the JDC, he said, represents nearly one-fourth of its budget and endangers wel¬ fare services desperately needed by 400,000 impoverished Jews overseas and 97,000 in Israel, in¬ cluding 55,000 aged, chronically ill or hcmdicapped immigrants. $10,500,000 annually can mean a,.sefious .cut^back^in -the-trans- fer, resettlement and absorption ot Jews who are seeking haven in Israel at a continuing high rate of immigration. Melton said. In addition, the United HIAS Service, which transports needy Jews to countries otiler than Is¬ rael, has lost $500,000 annually in reparations payments. "IT IS UP to the Jews of Am¬ erica to make good this large- scale loss of funds," Melton said, "so that human suffering can be averted. The opportunity to help is massive. Besides meeting the immediate need of new immi¬ grants, UJA funds must help absorb hundreds of thousands of earlier immigrants into Israel's lite and economy. In addition, UJA-supported progrtims must aid other hundreds ot thousands of impoverished Jews in 30 other countries, primarily in Europe, North Africa . and the Middle East.'' ITie campaign here raises funds for the UJA and other causes. The United Jewish Fund and Council is Columbus' major in¬ strument of helping the Jewish people throughout the world, and at home, as well as helping our¬ selves to live better lives and to have a better community for all. MELTON AND his group of workers urges everyone to take immediate steps to send their checks to the United Jewish Fund and Coimcil. CLEVELAND, (JTA) — Mounting public concern over black power and the white backlash hais obscured quiet but genuine process toward Negro-Jevyrish cooperation and understanding, the American Jewish Congress reported. Rabbi Arthur J. Lelyveld, president of thfe AJCongress, addressing the policy-making National Governing Council of the oirganization, said: "More Jews and Negroes are vvorking together on common projects to meet common heeds than at.any time in our nation's history." He des.- cribed Negro-Jewish cooperation as a "two-way" street" He noted that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bayard Rustin, Negro rights leaders, had spoken out "eloquently and vigorously" in protesting cultural and religious dis¬ crimination against the Jews of the Soviet Union. WASHINGTON, (JTA) — Cardinal Spellman pledged to a group of American Jewish leaders that "the Catholic Church in this country virill do everything It.possibly can to Implement the spirit as well as the letter" of the Vaticari Council's Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions. The Declaration, adopted by the Second Vatican Council and promulgated by Pope Paul VI on October 28, 1965, repudiated anti-Semitism, and the ancient charge of collective Jewish respohsibility for the death of Jesus, and called for fraternal dialogue between Catholics and Jews. JEiRUSALEM, (JTA) — A $1,000,000 buUding bearing the name of the late U.S. President John F. Kennedy was dedicated here at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center. The structure, according to Mrs. Mortimer Jacob- son," national president of Hadassah, the women's Zionist organization of America, who participated in the dedica¬ tion, is the organization's tribhte to the memory of Mn -¦-Kennedyi- - —i.. -'-.-^-¦v .- =-¦'¦¦:-—,- .,^.^~'~^~v^» ¦. .i">'^.-^.;U. NEW YORK, (JTA) — Lawrence A. Wen, prominent Jewish philanthropist, former president and ex-campaign chairman of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York, has made a gift of $1,000,000 to Columbia University,- it was announced here. The gift, the university stated, is the first individual contribution to the institution's $200,- 000,000 fund-raising drive, announced last month, when the Ford Foundation opened that campaign with a grant of $35,000,000. Mr. Wine's gift, it was stated, specified that $750,000 of the total be used to endow a faculty chair. NEW YORK, (JTA) — The Council of Organizations of ,¦ United Hias Service, commemorating a century of Eastern European Jewish mass settlement in the United Stated, presented awards to Secretary of Labor WUlard W. Wlrtz and the Jewish Daily Forward. More than 1,000 delegates from fraternal, labor and religious organizations witnessed the ceremony at the Council's 37th annual meeting held: at the Statler-Hilton Hotel here. Offensive Commercial Is Removed From Air Chronicling The News Editojriql 2 Real Estate 12 Society 6, 7 Shopping Guide 8 Synagogues 8 Sports 9, 10 Teen Scene 5 Teenagers Affiliate In Own Interest SAVANNAH, Ga. — Jewish teenagers affUiate with Jewish organizations out of their own interest and on their own initia¬ tive rather than because of pa¬ rental pressure, according to a study of the 236 Jewish high school age boys and girls in Savannah completed by the Na tional Jewish Welfare Board for the Savannah Jewish Council. Those who reported weakening association with Jewish communal organizations attributed this less to alienation from Jewish life or to acculturation and more to their search for a different type of program and to the fact that they find existing programs irreievent to their style of life and behavioried values. A radio commercial for Bal- lentlne beer was withdrawn from' the air this week in New York following a protest by the Amer¬ ican Jewish Congress objecting to its tone and content as offen¬ sive to Jews. The American Jewish C3ongress protest noted that hi the adver¬ tisement "a comedian named George Kirby told a 'funny' story about Jewish players on a foot¬ ball team who schemed to call signals hi Yiddish so that the opponent, Notre Dame, wouldn't understand — only to receive the rejoinder from a Notre Dame player that he, too, was Jewish and understood Yiddish." THE CONGRESS protest said listeners were "deeply offended by the mocking tone of the strong Yiddish accent employed by the 'comedian' — the kind of thing Mr. Kirby would certahily object to if Ballantine Beer had a com¬ mercial where Negro football players were to talk to each other In Uncle Remus terms of 'Yassuh boss' and similar locu¬ tions." The beer company head made a meethig unnecessary in a let¬ ter informing the Ctongress that the commercial was being can¬ celled. He wrote: "I can assure you that the fast thing we want to do is broadcast or telecast commercials which would be of¬ fensive to anyone. Accordingly, since you have received com¬ plaints about the commercial in question, we are removing it from the air." JWV Leader Calls Police Work Superb The "superb police work of New York officials" should be emulated by law-enforcement authorities throughout the nation in dealing with the ''Minute Men" and other extremist groups. Na¬ tional Commander Malcohn A. Tarlov of the Jewish War Veter¬ ans of the U.S.A. said today. Commander Tarlov, of Nor- walk, Connecticut, said "the ex¬ istence of a private army" had long been deplored by his organi¬ zation. He said steps should be taken against '"shnilar extrem¬ ist .groups in various states, es¬ pecially C^ifomia, where con¬ siderable activity of this type is known to exist." THE VETERAN leader Said "it is urgent to maintain closer surveillance not only of this or< ganization but also of similar violence - prone military - terror extremists like file American Nazi Party and the Ku KluX' Klan."
