Orthodox Day School
Still Seeking - Home

MIAMI BEACH, (JTA) — A
new effort in a seven-year strug-
gle by the Hebrew Academy,
an Orthodox Jewish D_ay School,
to find a new site in Miami
Beach was rebuffed after the
priest of a Roman Catholic
church near the proposed new
site expressed strong opposi-
tion.
The Miami Beach City Coun-
cil declined to take action on
the Academy's proposal for re-
zoning • of its property on Alton
Road to permit building of a
$750,000 school building. In so
doing, the council ignored Acad-
emy sponsors who picketed the
council chambers.
The council instead named a
committee to find a "suitable
location" for the school. The
committee was instructed to
consider the Alton Road site,
which is across the street from
the St. Patrick's Roman Catho-
lic Church.
In literature distributed be-
fore the meeting, Msgr. William
Barry, pastor of the church,
was described as "violently op-
posed" to building of a Jewish
school ir• the same neighbor-
hood.
However, both proponents
and foes of the Alton Road
site deplored injection of a
Catholic-Jewish issue in the
dispute.
Carl R. Hoffman, attorney for
property owners oppoSing the
site, who was named a member
of the special committee to find
a new location, said that his
clients objected because they
felt the site should either be
developed residentially or as
part of beautification of the ap-
proach to a new causeway. He
said "We would oppose it just
as much if it was a Catholic
or Protestant school."

Rutgers Orders. Probe
of Fraternity Bias

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.,
(JTA) — Officials of Rutgers
University ordered an investi-
gation of charges that some of
the campus fraternities discrim-
inate against potential members
on the basis of race, creed or
color.
The charge had been made
openly by the top student of
the school of business adminis-
tration, Richard F. Lert, of
Newark, who is a Jew. He ac-
cused the Delta Sigma Pi chap-
ter here, and other fraterni-
ties, of bias by never inviting
Jewish students to join.
Dr. Mason W. Gross, Rut-
gers president, said he was
"distressed" by the information.
He state that Rutgers, which
has had an anti-discrimination
rule for fraternities, since 1950,
"will not tolerate discrimina-
tion on the basis of race, creed,
color or national origin."

WESTPORT, Conn, (JTA)-
