MONTREAL, (JTA) — The
Legislative Assembly of Quebec
unanimously approved a gov-
ernment measure to make any
discrimination illegal in the
hotels, restaurants and camping
grounds of the Province of
Quebec.
The Canadian Jewish Con-
gress, which had urged such
legislation, sent a congratula-
tory telegram to Prime Minister
Jean Lesage.
In presenting the amend-
ment to the existing law, Car-
rier Fortin, Minister Without
Portfolio in the Quebec cabinet,
said that he believed it would
serve as an example to other
provinces. Asserting that dis-
crimination on religious and
racial grounds "is not practiced
generally in Quebec," he told
the legislators that the law was
designed "to prevent isolated
instances and to ensure that
visitors • to the province, espe-
cially those who come to the
World's Fair, will be received
anywhere without incident. We
want to affirm the principle
that • all people have equal
rights here."
The original law left a hotel
owner the right to refuse a per-
son food and lodging if there
was "just causes." This provision
had been under sharp criticism
as being to vague and open to
abuse. The amendment reads:
"No owner or tenant of a

Israel's National
Theater Company of
30 Will Tour U. S.

Habimah, Israel's national
theater, and its oldest repetory
group, will come to the United
States with a company of 30
for an 18-week visit beginning
February, 1964.
Negotiations were concluded
between the American-Israel
Cultural Foundation, which will
sponsor the tour as part of its
cultural exchange program, and
the Little Theater, Inc., which
will manage the tour.
The plans announced by Sam-
uel Rubin, president of the
Foundation; and Roger Euster,
president of the Little Theater,
call for performances in New
York City for at least half of
the 18-week period and a tour
of major cities in the United
States for the balance of the
visit.
The repertory company will
perform three plays in Hebrew,
one of which will be "The
Dybbuk," by S. Ansky, and two
contemporary Israeli p 1 a y s.
Theaters will be equipped with
earphones which will provide
simultaneous translation.
The Habimah will be the first
foreign group to be presented
here by the Little Theater,
which plans to bring a number
of other European repertory
companies in the seasons to
follow. Performances will be in
the Little Theater on West 44th
Street, once an intimate experi-
mental theater built in 1913,
and recently a television thea-
ter. The building will be re-
stored for its original purpose
this summer.
Habimah, Hebrew for "the
altar," was founded by Nachum
Zemach in Moscow, in the midst
of the Russian revolution, as a
Hebrew theater. Members were
coached by Stanislaysky and
directed by Vachtangoff, a dis-
ciple of his. After eight years,
the company arriving in Pales-
tine in 1928 where they soon
became established as the na-
tional theater. Their repertorire
consisted of plays adapted from
Yiddish classics by Eastern
European writers. A few mem-
bers of the original company
are still with the group.

hotel, restaurant, or camping
ground shall directly or through
his agent or a third party, re-
fuse to provide any person or
class of persons with lodging,
food or any other service avail-
able to the public in the estab-
lishment, or discriminate
against any person or class of
persons with respect to lodging,
food or any other service avail-
able to the public in the estab-
lishment, because of the race,
creed, color, nationality, an-
cestry or place of origin of such
person or class of persons."
Under the amended act, any
person found guilty of a viola-
tion will be liable to a fine of
$20 to $100 for each offense
and, in the event-of subsequent
offense within two years, to a
fine of from $50 to $200. Writ-
ten authorization by the Minis-
ter of Tourism, Fish and Game
is required for prosecution.
The Canadian Jewish Con-
gress in commenting on the
amendments said that while the
Minister was correct in saying
that such cases of bias were not
frequent, "anyone with any ex-
perience in these matters will
attest to the fact that there are
a sufficient number to warrant
the introduction of the bill."

nity has a "priority role" in
helping to establish "some
genuine hum an communica-
tions" between the white and
Negro communities, Bnai Brith
President Label A. Katz said.
He told the centennial conven-
tion of Bnai Brith District 4
that Negroes and white "are
really not talking to or under-
standing each other," thereby
adding to racial tension and
mistrust.
Katz, a southerner and native
of New Orleans, said the ab-
sence of real communications
based on "First-hand and hard-
headed knowledge of how the
other group thinks, lives and
acts, leads to vague generaliza-
tions and confused images that
give root to misunderstandings
and hostility. The Jewish com-
munity," he added, "needs to
be sensitive to the fact that the

is weary of promises. It wants
performance."
Urging support of civil rights
proposals before Congress, Katz
said that the intensity of the
protest marches and demonstra-
tions "should be a prod to
Capital Hill to overcome its
legislative anachronisms and a
prod to the white community
to accelerate efforts for racial
equality. We Jews have to be
