Dr. Wolfgang von Weisl, Revisionist leader, and three other Revisionists were today released from the Latrun detention camp. They (##) arrested on Aug. 5 when many Revisionists and several Jewish mayors were seized. (##) Oved Ben Ami of Nathanya is still in custody. Mayors Rokach of Tel Aviv and (##)itzi of Ramat Gan were freed yesterday.

A police communique issued this afternoon said that a “juvenile” was arrested (##) morning when two Italian pistols and a quantity of ammunition were found on him.

David Ben Gurion, chairman of the Jewish Agency executive, and Rabbi Judah L. (##)man, Mizrachi leader, arrived here last night from Zurich, where they attended (##) meeting of the Zionist Actions Committee. Commenting on the UNSCOP report, Ben (##)on said that the Agency will “unhesitatingly strive for the establishment of a (##)sh state.” Rabbi Fishman was more reserved, stating that “we are far from satisfied with the majority’s recommendations. We cannot agree to tearing Jerusalem from (##) Jewish state, but if compelled to do so, we will agree to partition, but with (##) less territory than recommended by the U.N. group.”

Ben Gurion said he felt that the Actions Committee meeting had strengthened (##) movement. He lauded the “clear line” against terrorism which had been adopted. (##)bi Fishman stressed, however, that the committee had not decided to combat terror (##)cibly, but by persuasion and propaganda.
