NEW YORK, (JTA) — The
100th anniversary of the com-
missioning of the first Jewish
chaplain in the American armed
forces was celebrated here at
the opening session of the bien-
nial, two-day convention of the
Association of Jewish Chaplains
of the Armed Forces.
The convention opened at the
memorial chapel of the United
States Merchant Marine Acade-
iny, in suburban Great Neck.
The Jewish chaplains marked the
centennial of the appointment,
on Sept. 18, 1862, of Rev. Jacob
Frankel, of Philadelphia, follow-

of a bill passed by Congress, au-

100 years ago, only regularly or-
dained ministers of "some Chris-
tian denomination" were eligible
to the chaplaincy.
A feature of the opening of
the convention was the presen-
tation of a Torah scroll to the
Marine Academy's memorial
chapel by Captain Joshua L.
Goldberg, retired Navy chaplain.
The Torah was accepted on be-
half of the Academy by Rear
Admiral Gordon McClintock, su-
perintendent of the academy,
and the school's chaplain, Rabbi
Hirsch E. L. Freund.
Chaplain Eugene J. Cohen, of
Arverne, N.Y., was elected presi-
dent of the Association of Jew-
ish Chaplains of the Armed
Forces at the close of the Asso-
ciation's biennial national con-
vention at Fort Hamilton.

CHICAGO. (JTA) — Rabbis
polled in Chicago were reported
in agreement that Jewish re-
ligions law sanctions abortion
when the mother's life or mental
well-being is at stake.
The poll was taken by the
Chicago Sentinel as an outgrowth
of the controversy which de-

vision personality. Sherri Fink-
bine, sought a legal abortion
after taking Thalidomide, a drug
which was found to have caused
