Biased Pamphlet

DR. ABRAM SPIRO

Announcement was made this
week by Dean Victor A. Rap-
port, of Wayne State Univer-
sity College of Liberal Arts,
that Dr. Abram Spiro, chair-
man of the Department of
Near Eastern Languages and
Literatures, has been recom-
mended by the .university pro-
motions advisory committee for
promotion to Professor, effec-
tive Sept. 1, that the Dean
had endorsed the recommenda-
tion and that it was approved
by WSU's president.
In his letter notifying Dr.
Spiro of his promotion, Dean
Rapport wrote:
"You have won for yourself
a place in the hearts of all
your colleagues and a respect
for your 'excellent management
as demonstrated through the
most splendid programs and
speakers that you bring to our
campus. I can only wish you
great happiness and content-
ment in the years that lie
ahead."

Honor Physicist Pauli

REHOVOT — The Weizmann
Institute- commemorated the
60th anniversary of the birth
of the great physicist, Wolfgang
Pauli, in a ceremony organized
by his former colleagues and
students, among them some of
the world's leading physicists.

WASHINGTON, (JTA)—The
District of Columbia public
school system made known that
it has rejected a new World
Affairs pamphlet because it
seeks to blarne Jews for Com-
munism in South Africa.
The pamphlet, published in
the "Headline Series" of the
Foreign Policy Association,
stated that Communist leader-
ship in South Africa "is mostly
white and, as in similar groups
in Europe, often Jewish."
William H. - Jenkins, supervis-
ing director of the history de-
partment of the District school
system, considered the pam-
phlet non-objective and ques-
tionable. Teachers were told
to stop using it because of the
controversial reference to Jews.
It had been used in a course on
world problems.
The Foreign Policy Associa-
tion describes itself as "a na-
tional educational organization
serving the American People."
It claims to be non-partisan,
non-governmental and non-
profit. Jenkins commented that
the association's "H e a d 1 i n e
Series" had previously been
considered reasonably good.
The African pamphlet, Jenkins
said, was "the first one with a
statement as radical as this."
The school board authorized
the classroom use of the "Head-
line Series" in 1958. Jenkins
has now asked teachers to care-
fully check other pamphlets in
the series before assigning
them to students.

year students of the Midrasha,
College of Jewish Studies, un-
der the direction of the poet,
Michael Deshe, who is on the
faculty of the Midrasha.
This occasion will mark the
70th birthday of the poetess
Rachel, who was among the
first Jewish women in modern
time to re-echo the beginning
of a new era for the East Euro-
pean Hebrew youth—the era of
Halutzism (pioneering) in the
Holy Land. She was also among
the first Jewish women who
preached, through her poetry,
the love for Mother Earth and
the idea of collective life which
is now known as the kibbutz
society.
Readings in Hebrew from her
poetic writings will be present-
ed by the following students:
Dan Atlas, Arella Barley, Rivka
Barley, Shoshana Bass, Eran

rection of Hannah Stiebel, with
Ariel Stiebel at the piano. The

vocalist; Israel Hochberg, cha-
lil; Oded Rubinstein, drum.
