Jewish Newspaper Association
Meets in Washington, D. C.
WASHINGTON. D. C. (AJP)—In a forward step to end long
existing chaos in the transliteration of Yiddish and Hebrew terms,
especially expressions of a religious significance, into English, the
American Association of English-Jewish Newspapers, convened here
in a two-day conference, urged presidents of America's four leading
Jewish schools of higher learning to undertake the project.
The Association, representing
America’s 36 leading English-
Jewish newspapers, called upon
the presidents of the Jewish
Theological Seminary, the He
brew Union College, Yeshiva
University and Dropsie College to
make the transliterations person
ally or assign a member of each
faculty to standardize the trans
lation of Yiddish and Hebrew
terms into the English language.
Members of the Association, in
cluding The Southern Jewish
Weekly, pledged unanimous sup
port to the decisions of the Na
ISRAEL CABINET CRISIS
RESOLVED
JERUSALEM (JTA) —The first Cabinet crisis in Israel—which
began two weeks ago with the resignation of Premier David Ben
Gurion and his coalition Cabinet—was resolved today. A joint
statement from the Mapai and Religious Bloc parties was scheduled
to be issued tonight, at which time President Chaim Weizmann will
entrust Mr. Ben Gurion with the formation of a new, 13-member
Cabinet.
Spokesmen for the Mapam and
Herut parties—the extreme left
and extreme right, respectively—
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that although they will
•cast a vote of non-confidence in
the new coalition, they conceded
that the new body “commands a
comfortable majority” in the
parliament.
Meanwhile, Religious Bloc
leaders Rabbi I. M. Lewin and
Moshe Shapiro—Ministers for So

also meeting here, and expressed
hope that the Conference would
gain “the large measure of unity
necessary to the achievement of
the objectives set forth at this
historic gathering.”

cial Welfare and Immigration,
respectively, in the defunct Cabi
net—informed the J. T. A. that
“since the Mapai has yielded to
the Religious Bloc’s demands,”
leaders of the Orthodox commun
ity decided that the Religious
Bloc Ministers should return to
the Cabinet. The Orthodox, Bloc
stressed, however, that “no coer
cion will be exercised on new im
migrants so they may choose their
own way of life.”
The new Cabinet will include
Jack Gering, financial expert
from South Africa, and Pinhas
Lubianiker, secretary-general of
the Histadrut. Zalman Shazar,
who served as Minister of Educa
tion, will be appointed Ambassa
dor to Moscow, succeeding Mor
decai Nemir. Mr. Gering will be
come Minister of Trade and will
also be responsible for sections of
the dissolved Supply Ministry;
David Remez, who was Minister
of Communications, will assume
the Education portfolio, while Dr.
Dov Joseph, former Supply Min
ister, will replace Mr. Remez. Mr.
Lubianiker will be named Minis
ter of Production.
Earlier, a statement issued by
the Mizrachi said that it will not
join a renewed coalition Cabinet
and will refrain from voting for
a coalition, because it believed
that it is not capable of bettering
Israel’s economic situation. At the
same time, the Mizrachi state
ment pledged the organization’s
remaining in the Religious Bloc.

The son told the court that he
was disappointed in the fact that
the tribunal had thus far ignored
the role played by Maurras .who
in an editorial on the day before'
the banker was murdered, called
for “action” against the Jews,
specifically mentioning Worms by
name. The son told the court he
believed the responsibility of
those who incite to murder is
much greater than that of the
murder.
Meanwhile, very little conclu
sive evidence has yet been intro
duced at the trial to prove that
the defendants, Marc de Susini
and Emil Armus, formerly mem
bers of the Vichy police, killed
the banker and ransacked his
villa on the Riviera on February
1, 1944.
