Mount Zion Temple has started

ciation in its Friday night He-
brew Services . first step
in a plan for a complete
changeover from the Ashkena-
zic pronunciation widely used
in American synagogues.
Rabbi W. Gunther Plaut ex-
plained that Sephardic Hebrew
was spreading rapidly as one
consequence of the fact that
this form is used in Israel. He
said the time would came when
the use of Ashkenazic would be
as rare as is the use of Chau-
cerian English now.
He said Mount Zion had un-
dertaken the change also be-
cause "it is in the nature of
the Reform synagogue to make
the form of its worship some-
thing that is alive and vital."
He added that if any apology
was needed for the change,
"it. is only that we did not do
it long ago."
The changeover calls for

Plan Psychiatric Tests
for Young Chicago Vandals

CHICAGO, (JTA) — Two 18-
year-old university students ac-
cused of malicious mischief for
wrecking a bronze menorah at
Lawn Manor Hebrew Congrega-
tion have agreed to undergo
tests at the Chicago Municipal
Court Psychiatric Clinic in ad-
vance of their trial in Boys
Court on June 27.
Alphonse Radvila and James
Erlenborn admitted the vandal-
ism which took place on May 1.
Rabbi Mordecai Schultz said the
Menorah, cast in solid bronze
and attached to one side of the
synagogue, was damaged be-
yond 'repair.

78-year-old president of Amer-
ican Savings and Loan, this
week pointed to several "new
civic and commercial enter-
prises of impressive scope that

The president of Michigan's
largest state-chartered savings
and loan association saije that
"because most of these projects
have been
taking shape
with little fan-
fare, many De-
troiters a r e
unaware of
both their ex-
istence a n d
their import-
ance in the
rebirth of
this great in-
dustrial city."
He said that the city's econ-
omy rests on "a much broader
base than is generally assumed,"
adding that while the automo-
bile industry is still centered
here, it directly employs less
than one-sixth of the local la-
bor force.
"New jobs created by new in-
dustries will bring more people
to the Detroit area, and all
these people—the newcomers
and the grown-up war babies—
will need homes. It is estimated
that over 225,000 new dwelling
units will be needed in the
1960's," Deutsch said.
"Most assuredly, our city's
savings and loan associations
will play an important role in
making mortgage money avail-
able for these new . homes,"
Deutsch said, pointing out that
68 percent of all Detroit-area
families own their own homes—
the bulk of which have been
financed by savings and loan as-
sociations here.
