More than 300 top American Jewish leaders, summoned by the United Jewish Appeal, endorsed the plans and programs of the new fund at a special conference. The UJA has broadened its basic purpose of aid to Immi¬ grants in launching the education fund. The new fund will be "separ¬ ate and distinct from the regular UJA campaign and will follow a wholly different set of basic prin¬ ciples," the UJA emphasized. ¦The new program will seek funds to build and equip, in Israel, 72 high schools at a cost of $57,000,000; and to provide thousands of scholar¬ ships for students and teacher- trainees costing $52,000,000 plus related projects. The plan includes establishment of youth centers, building and equipment ot pre- Idndergarten schools, and develop¬ ment of other educational facilities such as libraries and science lab¬ oratories. The prograiti was based on a report from a special study mis¬ sion of leading American educators who surveyed the education field in Israel and unanimously recom- . mended the plan. The mission report was pre¬ sented by Dr. Gores and endorsed enthusiastically by Abba Eban, Israel's Deputy Prime Minister and former Education Minister. He pointed out that Israel's "immense burdens" for defense, elementary school and higher edu¬ cation had made it impossible to open "high schools and vocational secondary schools to all" and that "a very great proportion" of those unable to continue their education at the high school and university level were children of immigrants from Asian and African nations. That situation, he said, was a great threat to Israel's social co¬ hesion. A survey found that children of families of African-Asian origin predominated among those getting no formal education beyond the elementary level, the very children NAZI DOCTOR AGAIN ELUDES CAPTURE Bonn, (JTA) — Josef Mengele, the long sought "selection doctor" at the Auschwitz murder ' camp, eluded capture by Israeli agents in Paraguay by only minutes recently, Der Spiegel, a leading newsweekly of Hambui-g, reported tiiis week. According to the weekly, 13 armed agents surrounded a hotel mvned by a former Belgian SS man, but Mengele, warned by a German-born conspirator jumped out of a window and escaped cap¬ ture. The hotel is located between Encarnacion and Asuncion, the weekly said. Der Spiegel said Mengele, who had the task of selecting victims for the Auschwitz gas chambers, arrived in Asuncion, last month. As he was traveling to Asuncion, the weekly reported "a number of the secret sei'vice team which had traced him were found dead, shot in the head, in the boi'der area be¬ tween Paraguay and Brazil." The Brazilian chief of Interpol, the international police agency, re¬ ported in Rio de Janeiro, last September 9, that an Israeli who might have been seaix-'hing for Mengele, had been murdered "a month ago" on the Peruvian side of the Brazil Peru bordei'. Edson Lasmai', the Interpol official, said he had asked his Peruvian counter¬ part to trace the killei-. Neither Der Spiegel nor Lasmar gave the name of the mui'dered Isi'aeli.

The Jewish Education Committee of New York said that preliminary enrollment data, indicated that there would again be an inci^ease in the student population of Jewish schools over the 155,517 children who at¬ tended Gretaer New York area schools during the 1963-64 year. Once again, the JEC indicated, the only type of school to show projected increases for all areas at all levels is the all-day school. Isaac Touhin, executive direc"tor of the AAJE, said it was esti¬ mated that, of the 600,000 children to attend schools u\ the coming -school year, about 50,000 would be in all-day schools, eithei' under de¬ nominational or community aus¬ pices.
