Federal Judge Jacob Mishler postponed until next Monday a decision in the extradition case of Mrs. Hermine Braunsteiner Ryan, a former Nazi concentration camp guard wanted in West Germany on war crimes charges. The extradition hearings opened in federal district court today but Judge Mishler said he could not rule until the complete dossier of documents relating to the case arrived from West Germany.

The Judge will also rule next Monday on the claim by Mrs. Ryan’s lawyer, Leo Barry. that she was illegally deprived of her U.S. citizenship which was revoked in 1971.

A small reconnaissance helicopter has been introduced into the Israeli Air Force, the latest issue of the Air Force publication revealed today. It is the Dell 206, similar to the Bell 205 already in service. The new helicopter will be among the 400 aircraft on display during Independence Day.
