Takes Issue With JTA
Report on Pope & Jews

Editor, The Jewish News:
I would like to register a
strong objection to the mislead-
ing article which appeared un-
der the heading "Charge Late
Pope Failed to Save Jews from
Nazis," which originated from
Rome via the Jewish Telegraph-
ic Agency and appeared in The
Jewish News on Aug. 12. The
correspondent quoted "a liberal
newspaper here, Paese Sera."
Paese Sera can hardly be
characterized as an Italian lib-
eral journal. The newspaper
has served as a "liberal-front"
outlet for the Partito Comunista
Italian° since its inception.
This newspaper has its editorial
direction under the auspices of
the Communist Party; its news
content is designed to deceive
the uninitiated into believing
that the editors are champions
of the liberal cause. Suffice to
say, the editorial offices of both
II Paese Sera and 1'Unita (the
official organ of the PCI) are
located at Via IV Novembre,
149. I can assure the JTA cor-
respondent that the substantive
content of his quoted article
appeared under the aegis of
Togliatti or one of his hench-
men, dictating the current
party line.
I trust that my comments
will not be interpreted as a
defense of Eugenio Pacelli
Pope Pius XII. The role of the
Pope will be determined by the
objective historian only when
the full materials will be made
available for analysis.

1960-61 to 167 students and
scholars throughout the world,
who are victims of Nazi perse-
cution, it was announced by
Jacob Blaustein, senior vice-
president of the Conference on
Jewish Material Claims against
Germany, which distributes
these awards for Jewish studies,
reL _arch and creative projects.
This is the seventh in the
annual series of grants in the
field of Jewish studies. Of the
167 recipients, 52 are students
preparing for careers in Jew-
ish teaching, for the most part;
41 are engaged in graduate
studies; and 74 are conducting
independent research in the
fields of Jewish scholarship and
the creative arts.
Blaustein said that the Con-
ference considers one of its es-
sential obligations to be the re-
construction of Jewish commu-
nal and cultural life and the
encou::agement of Jewish edu-
cation and scholarship which
the Nazis had sought to destroy.
"It is sparing no efforts in seek-
ing to -foster Jewish creative
activities," Blaustein stated.
This year, $1,857,375 was al-
located by the Conference for
cultural and educational reha-
bilitation and for the commem-
oration and documentation of
the Jewish Catastrophe, in an
overall budget amounting to
nearly $10,100,000. The major
portion has been earmarked for
the basic relief needs of Jewish
victims of Nazi persecution

VFW Chief Feldmann
to Welcome Nixon

Vice President RiChard M.
Nixon will make a brief visit to
Detroit next Wednesday to ad-
dresS the 61st national conven-
tion of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars at Coto Hall.
Republican leaders pointed
out this Detroit visit by Nixon
is non-political, and that his
appearance before the VFW
would be in his role as Vice
President, not as a candidate
for the Presidency.
In keeping with the non-po-
litical purpose of the visit, none
of the state's Republican can-
didates will meet the Vice
President at the airport. Wel-
coming Nixon will be VFW
National Commander Louis
Feldmann and his wife, Detroit
Mayor Miriani and city coun-
cilman Eugene I. Van Antwerp,
and other VFW officials.
