Anti-DeAmation League of Bnai
Brith, in New York, that the
executive action would probably
be taken in the fields of dis-
crimination in employment,
housing and voting rights.
"The - first steps ahead do not
require special legislation," he
said. Instead, the President "can
and will move with strong,
prompt action through the exec-
utive branch of government.
"He can establish fair employ-
ment wactices with companies
doing business with the govern-
ment, particularly defense con-
tractors. He can act through the
Department of Justice, using
the authority of the Attorney
General's office, to protect the
right to vote and other civil
rights and liberties granted by
the Constitution. And he can
take steps toward broader civil
rights in housing."
The Senator predicted that the
appointment of a Neva, Robert
L. Weaver, as housing and home
finance director, would produce
swift action against discrimina-
tion - in housing.
Senator Humphrey delivered
the annual Jacob Alson Memor-
ial Lecture named for the treas-
urer of the League.

Try Ex-Nazi General
for Jews' Mass Death

former SS general,-- Erich von
dem Bach, Zelewski, went on trial

in mass executions of Jews near

During the post-war Nurem-
berg trials, the 61-year-old Nazi

Council Calls for
Remedying Policies
Relating to Crime

The Jewish Community Coun-

senzweig, chairman of the
community relations committee,
issued a statement regarding
current public discussion of po-
lice procedures and community
relations, declaring:
"As citizens we expect no less
of our Police Department than

This a c t i o n must be accom-

Each of us is to blame for our

of our failure as a community

UN Body, Minus Russia, Strikes
Blow at Religious Education Bias

(JTA)—The United Nations took
what some delegates called "a
giant step" toward a move which
would forbid the type of religious
discrimination practiced in the
Soviet Union, where Jewish reli-
gious education is forbidden.
The move took the form of a
resolution adopted by 11 votes—
with the Soviet Union abstaining
min the Subcommission on Pre-
vention of Discrimination and
Protection of -Minorities.
The subcommission consists of
12 members. With all but the
Russian delegate voting in favor
of the measure, the resolution en-
dorsed a proposed international
Convention Against Discrimina-
tion in Education which, among

other things, would pledge all
signatories to:
1. Establish and maintain
"separate educational systems for
religious or linguistic reasons, or
institutions offering an education
which is in keeping with the
wishes of the pupil's parents or
legal guardians."
2. Recognize the right of na-
tional - minorities "to carry on
their own educational. activities,
including the maintenance of
. Under the Soviet constitution,
the Jews are recognized as a na-
tional minority. The international
treaty would become effective
within three months after at
least three countries have ratified
