The • first cadets to be Bar Mitzvahed at the new Jewish Chapel, they are also the first to have ever received Bar Mitzvah training at the U.S. Military Academy under a new program resulting from therecently completed West Point Jewish Chapel. Chaplain (LTC) Marc A. Abramowitz, the rabbi stationed at West Point, has instructed the cadets on a weekly basis in Hebrew and Jewish history and culture. The cadets never had any previous formal religious training. WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Reagan Administration's decision to bar Austrian President Kurt Waldheim for the United States was an important "symbolic gesture," according_to a senior Justice Department official. "It is a declaration to the world that this nation is and will be inhospitable to persons who have acted in the way Mr. Waldheim appears to have done during the war, namely, participating in atrocities against Jews and other groups in southeastern Europe," Deputy Attorney General Arnold Burns told the legal division of the Anti- Defamation League of B'nai B'rith in Los Angeles recently. The action by the Justice and State departments bars Waldheim as a person, but not in his capacity as president.

'::' Ronald Feerer, chairman of the Entertainment Committee, said that Van Harris, humorist, will perform that evening. The gourmet dinner will tional purpose, Burns explained. "It states that racial hatred and violence — which are inextricable — are ugly and wrong; and that we have to make a clean break with it," he said. In his speech, a copy of which was made available last week by the ADL office here, Burns also defended the deportation of Karl Linnas to the Soviet Union for his participation in the murder of thousands in the Tartu concentration camp in his native Estonia and pledged to continue the Justice Department's efforts against hate groups in the United States. On the Linnas case, Burns noted that Linnas did not contest the evidence against him, but relied on "a plea for decency and compassion" because of the death sentence imposed on him by the USSR in absentia. He stressed that deporta-, tion is not extradition, which is made at the request of a foreign government; "Deportation involves no recognition of the criminal justice system of the country to which the person is deported," he said. Burns denied that the Justice Department had sought to provide a last-minute Zell. Prior to presidency assuming the in June, 1984, Louis Robins First President In Heritage Village History Nominated For Fourth Term "Louis Robins will be the first president in the history of Heritage Village to have the pleasure of being nominated for a fourth, term," stated Sylvia Schecter, chairwoman of the Nominating Committee.

He said Linnas' lawyer told the Department that Panama might accept him, and this was investigated because all deported Nazi war criminals are given the opportunity to find a country that will take them. "I asked the State Department to see whether this offer was valid," Burns said. "It was not. And in any event, it was not something our department had sought out. Upon learning that there was no 'Panama offer,' we proceeded according to law."
