COURIER NEWH Cfeation of Jewish State Urged by Underground 'Chief BY KOWAKI) W. ..„, (UidU'd Press Stuff TKl, AVIV. Dec. 11.—Only the establishment of a Jewish staTc covering all Palestine can halt the Anti-Ilritish campaign of violence in the Holy Land, tin anonymous spokesman for Irgun Zvai Lcunrt. the militant Jewish underground organization, said today. An avoriigo-lo;>King man made that statement. He. sat behind a business-like desk in an ordinary house. Speaking quietly in Hebrew, he continued: "Otic does not trade with Ihe Holj L'liid. We do not believe there exists a 'minimum .solution' to the problem of Eretz Israel (Palestine). There is only one solution --the solution that history and reality have formulated." The identity of the Irgun spokesman must remain secret. This interview required several clays to arrange. But when it occurred there was no im.mbo-jumbo about It. ' met my guide on a street corner. He took me to a small house. There, was about as much intrigue involved as in meeting a friend downtown on v. rainy night. Quietly, but I irmly, this spokesman rejected the whole idea ol "horsetrading" for Palestine. Want "Rule" Transferred "There is but one basis for halting the fighting against the British," he said. "That is to transfer the rule over Eretz Israel to a temporary Hebrew government." He said the Hebrew government would begin immediately to effect the repatriation of the masses ol Jewish people made homeless by the war. He used the word "dias- pora," a New Testament term lor the dispersion of Jews after the Babylonian captivity. The Stern Gang plays an important role in the tortured politics of 20th Century Palestine, but Ir- gnn Zvai LcunU is the largest 01 the realy militant underground groups. Its membership contains a majority of the modern Hebrew "activists," who feel that the policy of negotiation is K. futile one and that Jews must fight lor their "Promised Land." "Youth in the homeland i Palestine) will continue to fight, for liberty and the unification of different parts of our territory," the Irsimist spokesman said. "Is this desire for a homeland not a 'minimum'?" he asked. "Why should something be regarded as natural and self-evident when it concerns Albanians and other people—and be considered unattainable and a 'maximum in the case of one of the oldest and most wronged nations in human history?" Irgun Zvai Leuim. he said, is will| ing to lose sympathy abroad—if necessary in the interest of it.' I anli-'Brilish campaign. I "Nobody will help ns if we do not help ourselves." he said. "The 'sympathy' of the world toward; the persecuted'is a kinti of intoxicating drug with which the world lulls its conscience; to the'perse- cuted it is of no use at all... 'sympathy for their passive sacrifices accompanied Europe's Jews to (Nazi) extermination camps." "This is why we fight and do not weep," he said. "We arc convinced, too. that our struggle arouses .sympathy—very deep sympathy even—among'the millions'ol free people, or whose »• cestors fought against oppressors and tv- rant.s." Says Too Much iiluml Siillled The spokesman denied that "violence" was the. proper word lor the Irgun fight. He said, rather, that h was applicable lo British rule in Palestine, "urn milch lie- brew blood has been spilt in our lifetime," he said, "and this war calls for additional losses, but it cannot be avoided." If lliigaiia. the moderate Jewish underground army, is called in lo suppress the irgunist campaign, the Irgunists will be forced to fight, the spokesman said. "If — on British initiative the Arabs attack us. we shall fight ba:'k and continue to attack the British." he said. The spokesman freely admitted ^hat Irgim uses explosive mines in its campaign. He said there were two kinds oi mines; those made for the British army and the homemade variety. Dritish soldiers, he said, often were killed while trying to neutralize the home-made mines. 'We cannot miblish a textbook for them in order to teach them to neutralize mines made nuclei 1 conditions of ihe underground movement." he said, "the British Mammoth Cabbage Head Survives Dry Fall and Later Autumn's Frost-i To prove Hint eold weather In Mississippi county doesn't halt the growing of king-she cabbages I" Mississippi County, Curtis .J.

Mr. Vinson asserted. "Had the cost of the houses here been in line with Ihosc throughout the district that range from S'GOO to $3300 we would have approved them readily, but 1 cannot put my signature of approval on the same houses which are 30 per cent higher," he asserted. Mr. stuck said cost of Ihe houses was approved in each case by the veteran purchaser. an d added that the cost list was not submitted before ihe house was sold "because it was our feeling that the veterans wanted and needed the housing and we wanted to let them get into the houses as soon as passible.
