MINNEAPOLIS, (JTA) — A
five-month long dispute over the
refusal of a University of Minne-
sota fraternity chapter to end a
"Christians only" rule on ad-
missions boiled up again after a
university subcommittee failed to
make a recommendation.
The debate came to a head
last November when Alpha Tau
Omega asked for and obtained a
waiver from its national office
from a Caucasians only policy
but refused a university request
to ask for a similar waiver on a
national policy of "Christians
only."
After weeks of argument, a
senate committee on student af-
fairs ruled on Jan. 20 that the
fraternity's constitution did not
contravene university policy.
A subcommittee of the senate
committee then began • a new
study of the issue and scheduled,
talks with the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith, the Urban
League and the Governor's Corn-
mission on Human Rights. Dr.
Donald Zander, student activi-
ties bureau director; said the
subcommittee would present a
report about April 7.
The university policy forbid-
ding any student group to deny
membership on grounds of race,
color or religion has one excep-
tion, selection on purely religious
grounds. The fraternity, how
ever, has refused to be classi
as a religious group.

community separate from that
of the Moslem population al-
though enjoying the same rights
as the Moslems, was adopted
here at the congress of Moroc-
can Jewish Communities.
The resolution was adopted
following a stormy debate in
which speakers pointed out that
it is an error to believe that a
Jewish consistory similar to
to that existing in Western
countries can be a success in a
country with a theocratic re-
gime. Mubarek Bekkai, Moroc-
can Minister of Interior- who
presided at the opening of the
congress, left the hall immedi-
ately after the resolution was
adopted, apparently dissatisfied
with the resolution.
The Jewish Community of
Casablanca, largest in Morocco,
did not participate in the con-
gress, because it considered the
internal political situation in
Morocco inopportune for hold-
ing such a congress. Three mem-
bers of the executive of the
Casablanca community who
backed the holding of the con-
gress resigned from leadership
in the community. They were
Marc Sabbah, vice - president;
David Azoulay, secretary-gen-
eral; and Max Loeb, an execu-
tive member. Meyer Ob

The resolution proposing the
establishment by the Govern-
ment of an elected Jewish body
to act in liaison with the central
authorities and to advise the
Government on all problems and
administrative questions facing
the Jewish community was ex-
pected to meet with disapproval
on the part of _the Government
and with strong opposition on
the -part of Moslems. Jewish
community organizations in
Morocco have been limited hith-
erto to religious, welfare and
education activities.
