The letter was the latest in an exchange of correspwndence be¬ tween the American Jewish lead¬ ers and Dr. Schroeder. Label Kalz, president of B'nai B'rith and act¬ ing chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jew¬ ish Organizations, signed the letter in t)6half of the groups represented in the Conference.

Under present Ger¬ man law, German war criminals against whom no judicial act has taken place would be free from prosecution on May 8, 1965, the twentieth anniversary of V-E Day. "The West German Government's evasion of its mora! responsibilities with respect to the extension of the statute of limitations and the with¬ drawal ot German scientists from Cairo undermines our confidence in your government's awareness of the as yet unredeemed obligation of the German people to history and to the siirvivors of the Nazi holocaust," the letter to Dr. Schroeder declared, adding: "Until your government has de- 'YOUNG JEWISH INTELLECTUAL SPEAKS our PANEL FOR HADASSAH JOINT MEET Mrs. Michael Karr, president of the Columbus Chapter of Hadassah announces that Chai, Liloh, Mitzvah and Shalom groups will have a joint meeting on Thursday, Jan. 14, at 8:15 p.m. at the Agudas Achim Synagogue.

(JTA)—Prime Minister Harold Wilson -called this week for an international agreement to restrict arms shipments to Israel and the Arab states and for the creation of a "nuclear free zone" in the Near Easl. Mr. Wilson spoke in the House of Commons where he was asked whether the government would sell Israel the British Buccaneer air¬ craft. He said that "as far as arms are concerned, the solution must lie in getting inlernational agree¬ ment to stop the competitive ship¬ ment of arms to any Near Eastern counti-y, and to work as quickly as possible to secure a non-nuclear zone in that area to prevent what is already a dangerous arms sit¬ uation becoming worse by becom¬ ing nuclear." "^ His comment followed a sugges¬ tion by Frederick A. Burden, Con¬ servative, that Britain sell the Buc¬ caneer jets lo Israel. "Israel is a small and isolated country; certainly her intentions are not agressive," Mr, Burden said. He asked: "Why should it not be an the interests of people in general to insure that such coun¬ tries should have arms with which to protect themselves?" Mr, Wilson replied that "the Government has nol been asked to supply Israel witli Buccaneers. If this question, so far hypothetical, became a reality, it would raise some very difficult issues." He stressed that the Government wanted to avoid an arms race in the Near East. "I am sure," he told Mr. Bur¬ den, "the whole House will be well aware of our desire to avoid an arms race in the Middle East. The Prime Minister assured the House of the sentiment of the Brit¬ ish Governmeni "to ensure that everything is done to preserve the independence bf Israel and to do everything in our power, which is nol easy, to damp down the cause of tension in that area." monstrated its clear understanding of this obligation and its readiness to discharge it in these two major areas of Jewish and general hu¬ manitarian concern, Germany's claim to a genuine rebirth and a new moral posture must be vigor¬ ously rejected." The Jewish groups were sharply critical of a telegram from Dr. Schroeder. dated Nov. 24, in whacfa the German official sadd it was "very unlikely that a substantial number of hitherto unknown Nazi criminals will be discovered in the future." "A statistical approach is irre¬ levant," the Jewish leaders de¬ clared. "It invokes quantitative criteria that are altogether unre¬ lated to the moral issue at stake. Whether -there be many or few, eyery Nazi criminal guilty of mass atrocities and genocide must be brought to justice."
