Bnai Brith _President _Label Katz Will World Jewish Congress Seeks
Address '61 Campaign Closing Dinner Witnesses to Destruction of Ghetto

Label A. Katz of . New Or:
leans, president of Bnai Brith,
will be speaker at the closing
dinner of the 1961 Allied Jew-
ish Campaign 6:30 p.m. May 3
at the Jewish Center, an-
nounces Paul Zuckerman, Cam-
paign chairman.
Katz is the youngest man
ever to hold the office since
the Jewish service organization
—today the world's largest—
was founded in 1843. He was 40
when elected in May, 1959, at
a triennial convention in Jeru-
salem.
Katz' participation in Jewish
communal activities include
membership on the National
Cabinet of the United Jewish
Appeal; the executive commit-
tee of the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds;
the board of directors of United
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society
(HIAS) ; the board of the Amer-
ican Association of Jewish Edu-
cation, and as a vice chairman
of the Joint Defense Appeal.
Workers and leaders in the
Campaign held the last report
meeting before the closing din-
ner this afternoon.
At the meeting, the chairmen
of leading sections of each of
the Campaign's seven trade and
professional divisions; its
Women's, Junior and Metropoli-
tan Divisions, were honored.
More than 2;500 Campaign
workers are making an inten-
sive two-week effort to cover
all Campaign slips before the
closing dinner.
Zuckerman again empha-
sized that there is to be no
clean-up of • Campaign cards.
"We owe it to the Campaign I

and to the contributor to so-
licit each pledge patiently and
carefully," he said.
"I want each giver to be en-
couraged to ask about the serv-
ices his Campaign dollar per-
forms."
Zuckerman said that nine out
of every ten gifts to the Cam-
paign have been for the same
amount or more than the las
year's gifts.
"There is an increased
mand for service on all f
this year and our contrib
are responding with incr
giving," Zuckerman said.
He emphasized areas of
cal service that the Campaig
supports. The Fresh 'Air So-
ciety provided a three-week
summer vacation for 1,600
children, half of whom were

Call Miami Rulings 'Victory
for Religious .Freedom'

according to a joint AJCongress-
ACLU statement, "signal a his-
toric advance in the effort to
protect the public school child
from invasions of. his religious
conscience, a protection em-
bedded in the separation of
principle of the First Amend-
ment. This is not an attack on
religion per se, or the 'free ex-
ercise thereof' clause of the
First Amendment, as those who
oppose this suit have claimed,"
the statement declared.
The statement noted that "in
ruling that the Bible may be
read in school without com-
ment, Judge Gordon made clear
that 'there is nothing in the
Florida law that requires a stu-
dent be told that it is a quote
from the. Bible or that the stu-
dent should be told from what
book or verse the quotation
was taken.' Particularly signifi-
cant," the two organizations
commented, "was the judge's
statement that 'if so, it might
be considered sectarian com-
ment, which is forbidden by the
Statute and the court is not
passing on that point of law.'
"Judge Gordon made clear,"
the AJCongress-ACLU state-
ment added, "that he based his
ruling upholding Bible reading
on the finding of fact that 'there
is no evidence before the court
except• in an isolated incident
that any comment or explana-
ttion was made on the verse
read from the Bible and there
is express restriction in the act
itself from so doing'."
"We note," the statement
added, "that the decision did
d-mark rulings," not hold Bible readings per se
to be a breach of the wall of
separation between church and
state. The question of the con-

NEW YORK, (JTA)—At-
torneys for the American Jew-
ish Congress and the American
Civil Liberties Union, today
termed "a victory for religious
freedom" three key rulings in
the decision of a Dade County,
Fla., court in Miami's 'religion-
in-the schools case.
At the same time, they an-
nounced they would appeal
other parts of An opinion by
Circuit Judge J. Fritz Gordon
that upheld Bible reading and
the recitation of the Lord's
Prayer in public schools. The
appeal on thes,e sections of the
decision will be vigorously
pressed, the two organizations
said, "because of our belief that
these practices violate the
church-state separation princi-
ple of the First Amendment."
The AJ Congress and ACLU,
which represented five parents
in challenging sectarian prac-
tices in the Miami schools, said
they were "highly gratified" at
these "precedent-making rulings
by Judge Gordon:
"1. For the first time' in
American history, a court has
probhited sectarian holiday ob-
servances in public schools such
as those depicting the Nativity
and Crucifixion of Jesus.

The Jewish Home for Aged
cares for more than 300 men
and women, whose average age
is 84 years, each month. Sixty
additional older persons living
in their own homes come to the
Home daily to share in all of
its activities.
The Jewish Vocational Serv-
ice interviewed more than 2,000
people with employment and
vocational problems. More than
a quarter of the people inter-
viewed were adolescents.
The Community Workshop
studied the employment pos-
sibilities of 100 people with
severe physical, intellectual
and emotional problems.
Five thousand children and
adults used Camp Tamarack on
