Compiled From Wire Reports Kurt Waldheim, former U.N. secretary general, won Austria's June 8 run-off presidential election, with 53.9 percent of the vote in spite of allegations of a Nazi past. "The result showed that the Austrian people are not prepared to accept' these accusations that.have been made against me," the 67-year-old Waldheim said in a victory statement on Austrian television. Others, however, including Israel, have accepted the evidence- that Waldheim participated in the Nazi killings of prisoners and civil> ians in the Balkans. In Tel Aviv, the Israeli government issued a statement expressing "deep regret and disappointment at the election of Kurt Waldheim as president Of \llstllJ ' Kjll\ U'piill^ indicated that Israel was planning to recall its ambassador to Austria in reaction to the election. The American Jewish Congress has asked that Waldheim, because of his/Nazi past, be barred from the United States. The U.S. Justice Department, however, said, shortly after the election, that Waldheim will be allowed into the U.S. because his status as head of state would take precedence over any action against him under a 1978 law allowing the US. to deny visas to undesirable aliens. These include those associated with the Nazi government and thoise who took part in mass executions of Jewish and other ethnic groups during WW II. Waldheim has acknowledged serving in the German army but as a desk officer whose job ,was to verify field reports, not to conduct oper- .ition-. oi l'iu- oniric '_,^ ?ClMgr .i ir&iTiiiy' fsvjf 7?? f f^.-:iElten«rkrS??;c ?<prkJffe;B'SiS5 - * ' 'lf^lS'V'.':i''^'':'f Outgoing Torah Academy President Larry Ruben (right) is passing the gavel to new President Bob Schottenstein (top photo).
