(AP Wirephoto) Israel rejects Lansky's appeal JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel's Supreme Court rejected an appeal by American gambling czar Meyer Lansky for Israeli citizenship today. The court's ruling cleared the way for the 71-year-old underworld magnate's expulsion from the country in which he sought refuge more than two years ago. He is under indictment in Florida and Ne ( w York for illegally receving gambling profits and failing to pay taxes on them. State Atty. Gabriel Bach told the court last spring that if the government expelled Lansky, it would give him a travel permit to go to any country he chose. He said there was no intention of turning him over to the United States since Washington has not requested his extradition. However, the U.S. State Department has confiscated Lansky's passport, and the court's refusal to grant him Israeli citizenship leaves him virtually stateless unless he returns to America. Lansky claimed Israeli citizenship because he is a Jew and the "law or return" offers citizenship to almost all Jews who come to the Jewish homeland. The Interior Ministry denied his application on the grounds that he had a criminal past and would endanger the public welfare. Lansky's lawyer contended that the government's f'n'm of a criminal past was based on "rumor and gossip," and that he had no record of criminal conviction. By WALTER R. MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) - WWen political campaign organizations are functioning smoothly, they don't sh^.w. And Sen. George McGovern s has been showing. That is why the McGovarn headquarters is drawing so much attention, despite fne insistence of the Democratic presidential nominee and his lieutenants that matters of staff and organization don't interest the voters. His has been a troubled command post since shortly after he won the nomination. McGovern himself once reprimanded his staff, and announced that he had diTe so, because an unidentified aide asserted that campnic" Chairman Lawrence F O'Brien would be only a figurehead with no responsibilities. McGovern said organizational problems are of little interest to anyone but political writers, "For months they talked about how brilliant our organisation was ...," he said. "Now they're saying how clumsy wo are " In the days of his uphill climb thrown Ihe presidentk;i primaries to the nomination, McGovorn's organization did perform brilliantly. It a is.) performed quietly. That has not been the case •of late. Disputes within the McGovern political shop have- been breaking out in public O'Brien himself himed he niteht quit as campaign chairman unless something was done to Improve what he considered poor coordination, communication and control. He has since pronounced himself satisfied with the organization and theme of the campaign, But soon after that problem was resolved, Hep. Frnnk Thompson of New Jersey resigned as director of the campaign voter-registration drive af'.er a dispute with campaign Manager Gary Hart over con- tro' and finances. Thon came the case of Gordon Weil, executive assistant to McGovern and executive director of the campaign, w'io left the headquarters one day after giving the impression h« would not be back, refused to confirm or deny reports he was quitting, and announced a day later that he was staying. "Speculation about internal campaign matters is of n* importance to the voter, nor should it be," Weil said. But a presidential campaign is part of the process that shapes not only elections, but administrations. The men around a candidate during his campaign are, presumably, men who would play key roles in his administration. One top McGovern aide acknowledged there Is tension within the organization, atxl sensitivity on the part of early McGovern men as Democratic politicians wno earlier had sided with other candidates move into the campaign. There is nothing unusual about that; it is a strain that affect any national campaign. What is unusual is the amount of open controversy !t has generated.
