    Eichmann hangs today - Hitler, next?

    by Lynn Carroll

    By the time this goes to press, Adolf Eichmann, the SS officer most responsible for carrying out Adolf Hitlers monstrous order to eliminate Europe's Jewry, will be a scattering of cremated ashes swirling in the Mediterranean sea off the coast of Israel, the Jewish country that finally, and appropriately, brought him to justice.

    Eichmann began his inglorious career in 1938 when Hitler appointed him to clear the city of Vienna in the newly annexed Austria, of Jews. Eichmann was so successful in this mission, that he rose steadily in the murderous ranks of the SS , until in 1942 he was appointed to provide the “final solution of the Jewish question,” (Herman Goering's phrase), exterminating four million Jews in gas chambers or by working and starving them to death. Another two million Jews died at the hands of numerous other Germans.

    He was captured by the Americans in 1945, but, inexplicably, was allowed to escape before the Nuremburg trials of the German leaders; however, the Jewish Secret service, Mossad tracked him down to Argentina where he was kidnapped, and smuggled to Israel, where he was tried and sentenced to death last year.

    This is a most satisfying and just end for one of the many Nazi monsters; how just it would be if only they could all be brought to retribution, thus, especially, the worst of them all, Adolf Hitler, whom many of us, do not buy that ridiculous story of his supposed suicide and burnt body. One wonders why it was left to the Mossad to ferret out Eichmann, and how he was allowed to escape in the first place, along with questions of why so little was done by the Allied hierarchy to check out the story of Hitler's demise as told by interested parties, Germans, to a man?

    While some of us are satisfied at Eichmann's meeting his deserts, we can only hope that, someday soon, Hitler will also go the same way.

    Federal versus State laws

    by Bernie Cote

    Governor Barnett may blare forth about States' rights, in his token effort to keep the black activist, James Meredith , from enrolling in the currently all-white University of Mississippi, but it is a mere sop to the sizeable minority - unusually, and unhappily, containing quite a segment of young students, who, instead of being traditionally radical and forward -looking are reacting like a bloc of stodgy old conservatives - within this State of clinging to the notion that "Them uppity niggas have gotta keep their place", but the Democrat governor, who is a much better man than the role he's playing right now to placate that ugly minority, knows full well that the Federal law must prevail, ultimately.

    And the law, as during this month was handed down by the U.S. Fifth Circuit of Appeals, is that Meredith, as an American citizen, should be so enrolled.

    Ross Barnett in his shadow-boxing over the issue, is up against two heavyweights as sparring-partners, the Attorney-General, and the President of these United States, no less, the Kennedy brothers.

    They are going easy on their outmatched opponent, they are not, from their bully-pulpit ordering Barnett to comply with the law, but are negotiating with sweet reasons for the Governor, giving him every opportunity for him to withdraw gracefully from the arena to save face with his turbulent constituency, the White supremacists in this State. If Mr Barnett undertook to maintain law and order, they promised, they would not unleash the military upon the tense situation.

    The governor, however, has dug his heels in, and given a speech defying the ruling handed down by the Court, and James Meredith is still an outsider. Whereupon, the Kennedys, following the Constitution, seized control of the Mississippi National Guard, and sent in federal marshals to escort Mr Maredith into the University.

    After the stick of law, the President offered the carrot of consolation to white Southerners, the majority of whom were his fellow Democrats anyway. Kennedy said in a televised address, that he recognized "...The present period of transition and adjustment is a hard one for many people" , , but added that all this upheaval was going on with all of America and the whole world watching, so he urged the governor, and especially the outraged white students at the University to simmer down and let social evolution follow its enlightened course.

    Whether the President's excellent diplomacy will soothe the angry minority, remains to be seen.
