I Jews Warned to Adopt
French Canadian Ideas
by Cabinet Minister

ber of the Quebec Provincial
Cabinet warned that the Jews
in the Province would have to
come nearer the views of
French Canadians if they do
not wish to become isolated.
Rene Levesque, Quebec Mini-
ster of Natural Resources, told
the Canada Israel Chamber of
Commerce that the Jews should
do this if they would avoid be-
ing trapped between the two
principal ethnic groups in the
country as has happened in
Jewish history.
Levesque assured the Jewish
community that changes "will
soon be made to modify the
somewhat barbarous present
position of the Jewish schools
in the province," and prom-
ised_ greater flexibility in the
education of Jewish children.
In spite of the separation of
Jews from French Canadians,
he said, there is least anti-
Semitism in French Canada. He
praised the fidelity of the Jews
to their national origins , which
make possible the existence of
the State of Israel and the
Canadian Jewish community.

Joel D. Tauber, the new President of the Junior Division
of the Jewish Welfare Federation, is congratulated by out-
going president, Louis M. Stern, and Leonard N. Simons, cen-
ter, guest speaker at the Junior Division Annual Meeting.
Under the leadership of Stern, the division collected $23,010
for the Allied Jewish Campaign. Awards for outstanding service
to the division were presented to Louis M. Stern, Wallace M.
Handler, Guy Barron, Ivan Boesky, Mrs. Alan E. Luckoff, Joyce
Markin, John H. Shepherd, Joel D. Tauber, and Barry Yaker.
Division officers elected at the meeting include the chairman
of the executive committee, Mrs. Alan Luckoff and vice-presi-
dents Ivan Boesky John H. Shepherd and Barry Yaker.

Finance Minister is on the point
of presenting drafts of the two
bills to the cabinet and the
parliament, they have strong
objections to various provisions
of the bills and are opposed
to them in their present form.
They criticized above all the
attempt to take away certain
rights from categories of Nazi
victims, which they enjoyed un-
til now. They also demanded
that the claims of the Nazi vic-
tims, who left Eastern Euro-
pean countries after Oct. 1,
1953, and who cannot file -claims
under the present law, should
not be taken care of, as it is
stipulated now, by a special
fund, but included in the exist-
ing indemnification law. Also,
they raised objections to a
number of other provisions of
the bills.
The Finance Minister assured
the representatives of the
Claims Conference that while
he does not want to delay the
presentation of the bills to the
