Hooligans in Argentine Town Smear Doors of Alliance Israelite Institution with Tar

The entrance to the Alliance Israelite Universelle building in the city of Salta, where a small Jewish community exists, was smeared last night with tar by hooligans. Similar attacks have been made in the past by unidentified vandals.

A project to build a 3,000,000-peso hospital in Entre Rios to be named for Mme. Eva Peron, wife of the Argentine President, was discussed here today by leaders of major Jewish groups at the suggestion of the pro-Peronist Jewish organization, O.I.A. The hospital is planned as a gift of Argentine Jewry to the foundation for social work carrying the name of Mme. Peron. The meeting decided that funds would not be raised by Jewish organizations but from individual Jews who will be asked to contribute to the project.
