JUN Convention Takes Strong Stand
Against Rightists; Acts Against Arab
Boycott, Latin American Anti-Semitism

The Jewish War Veterans' an-
nual convention, now in ses-
sion here, is acting on a series
of resolutions on civil rights,
in condemnation of the Arab
boycott of Israel, in support of
liberalized immigration laws,
and in protest against the anti-
Semitic outbursts in Latin
American countries.
An appeal was addressed to
President Kennedy urging him
to intercede with Argentina and
Uruguay to protect the 500,000
Jews - residing in the two coun-
tries "against hard-core fascist
extremists." The appeal warn-
ed that the anti-Semitic 'out-
bursts in the Latin American
countries indicate that "the
possibility of a Nazi rebirth is
not remote," that the Jewish
communities in these countries
are in grave danger "largely
because of the weaknesses dis-
played by the central govern-
ments in dealing with the per-
petrators of these crimes, remi-
niscent of the early days of
Hitlerian Germany."
The message to President
Kennedy was addressed by
Abraham Kraditor of New
York, chairman of the JWV
foreign affairs committee.
A plea for a change in the
immigration laws of the
United States abolishing the
national origins quota system
as it is now constituted was
made by Senator Philip A.
Hart.
Speaking before the organi-
zation's national executive com-
mittee, Senator Hart asked for
support of a bill he is sponsor-
ing with 25 o t her Senators
which would make quota sys-
tems more realistic and less
"discriminatory" and eliminate
an outmoded arrangement
which "does not serve the na-
tional interest."
National Commander Theo-
dore Brooks of New York
urged the resolution commit.
tee to pass a strong resolu-
tion which would provide a
mode of action against rad-
ical right groups. He pointed
out these groups, by stupidity
or design, were furthering the
Communist conspiracy.

London Candidacy
Supported for JWV
Natl. Commander

"Birchites and so-called cru-
saders, wrapping themselves in
the cloak of patriotism do little
else but help divide the Ameri-
can people. Anything that con-
tributes to casting suspicion and
fear against one's neighbor does
not help the cause of freedom,"
he stated.
During the JWV convention
sessions, the valor of Jewish
war heroes was recalled.
Tribute was paid to the
memory of Lt. Raymond Zuss-
man of Detroit, World War II
Hero who was awarded a
Congressional Medal of
Honor.
In the first world war, Con-
gressional Medals of Honor
were awarded to Sgt. Benjamin
Kaufman, a former JWV na-
tional commander; Lt. Sydney
G. Gumperts and Sgt. William
Samuelson.
Civil Congressional Medal of
Honor winners were: Sgt. Maj.
Abraham Cohn, Pvt. Abraham
Greenwalt, Sgt. Henry Heller,
Sgt. Leopold Karpeles, Sgt. Ben-
jamin B. Levy and Pvt. David
Orbansky.
A political blunder com-
mitted by Michigan's Gover-
nor John B. Swainson, in his
address on Wednesday, cre-
ated a stir among a handful
of delegates and was blown
up into a "scandal" by one of

Detroit's newspapers, with the
result that the retiring Na-
tional Commander Brooks at
once announced he would
also invite Swainson's op-
ponent, the Republican
George Romney, to address
the convention on a non-pol-
itical subject.
Governor Swainson, attacking
the Republicans, appealed to
the Michigan delegates for their
votes at the next election. One
post commander immediately
expressed anger, with the re-
sult that Romney was invited
to speak on Thursday morning.
Romney's address was a re-
iteration of his position in sup-
port of civil rights and in op-
position to the rightists whom
he has been battling since he
became a candidate for Gover-
nor.
The veterans' convention par-
ade Wednesday night was most
impressive. A number of mili-
tary units and other veterans'
organizations participated and
thousands of viewers watched
the parade.
