Death Verdict For Nazi To Be Appealed JERUSALEM, (JTA>—Dr. RobeH Servatius, who will be the defense counsel for Adolf Eiohmann in the trial here March 15, aaid that if'Eichmann, who directed the mass-annihilation of 6,000,000 Jews under Hitler, ia convicted and sentenced to death, the verdict would be appealed immediately. The Cologne attorney expressed the hope that the Bichmaim trial would not last longer than two months. He also said he hoped that only a part of the 5000 pages of Eichmann's contesaions, made in reply to police Interrogations, would be read Into the court rec¬ ord and thus shorten the pro- ceedinga. DR. SERVATIUS revealed that the Eichmann family received about $5000 for Eichmann's mem¬ oirs published in Lite and that the family gave him $4000 of that sum as part of his defense fee. Dr. Servatius made theae points to press representatives before leaving Israel temporarily for West Germany. He explained his departure as due to the fact that he still had not been given a charge sheet or a copy of the evidence against his client. He had arrived in Israel with an¬ nounced plana to remain for the trial. ASSEBTINO HE should have been Informed of a decision to postpone presentaUon ot the charge sheet, he told reporters at the airport that if he had been notified, he would have postponed his arrival. A last minute decision by the proaecutlon to introduce changes in the charge sheet caused delay In its completion. The attorney also complained about the refusal of Israeli au¬ thorities to allow him to meet privately with Blchmann. He said the Israelis Insisted there should be no direct contact between Eichmauin and anyone and that, even now, his talks with hia client were held In the presence of a guard. HE SAID THAT during his stay In West Germany, he would meet with the chairman of the local bar association to discuss with hUn that refusal. He added that the stay would be a short one and that he expected to re¬ turn to Israel soon with his aides, (Contlnutd on page 4) WHO WILL BE THE "ANGEL OF THE DAY" Cupid's Ball Set For Center Tomorrow BlarUyn Samelson Final preparations have been completed for the Jewlah Center's second annual Cupid's Ball Satur¬ day night at the Center Audito¬ rium.

Gives His Notice To President Jerusalem, (JTA) Prime Minister Ben-Gurion resign¬ ed Tuesday after having summoned a special meet¬ ing of the Cabinet to submit his resignation to President Itzhak Ben-Zvi, thus bring¬ ing about the automatic res¬ ignation of the Cabinet. Un¬ der the law, Ben-Gurion and his Cabinet will continue as the caretaker government. In his letter of resignation, Ben- Gurlon said "My understanding of my obligations forbid me to bear reapons'WIity for the cabinet decision on Dec. 25 as this would be incompatible with principles of Justice and the basic laws of the State." This was a reference to a cabi¬ net meeting which accepted the report of a seven meml>er minis¬ terial committee which exonerat¬ ed former Defense Miniater Pin- haa Lavon of charges that he had given the orders that resulted in a security mishap In 1954. Lavon, now Secretary General of Hista¬ drut, resigned under protest as Defense Minister in 1956. Acting Prime Minister Levi Eshkol announced the govern- oumt's resig;naitlon in the Knesset. His formal statement waa fol¬ lowed try a request for debate, but this was shelved when, on l>e- half of the caretaker government, Eshkol expressed objection. The opposition party, spear¬ headed by the general Zionists and Herut plan are facing a de¬ bate next week by rounding up the necessary number of signar tures of Knesaet members.

The National Religious party, which is a member of the coali¬ tion, did not support the non-confi¬ dence motion or take part In the Knesset debate. However, three of the parties that voted against the motion—Mapam, Ahdut Avo¬ dah and the Progressives—Issued statements opposing Ben-Guriori's request that Pinhas Lavon, secre¬ tary-general of Histadrut, Israel's Federation of Lal)or, resign froim his post.
