JWV Elects Southerner as National Commander;
Back Kennedy's Program for Just Civil Rights

WASHINGTON, (JTA)—Dan-
iel Neal Heller, Miami attorney,
who became the first Southern-
er in many years to be elected

convention, that he will seek a
more active role for local posts

objectives.

supporting the Aug. 28 March

and authorized "the participa-
tion of all echelons in the

tions.
Adoption of the resolutions
followed an address to the
convention by Roy Wilkins,
executive secretary of the
NAACP, who reviewed Jew-
ish efforts to promote Negro
rights and commended the
role of JWV.
The JWV made known re-
ceipt of a letter from the White

Delegates at WJC Conference
Discuss Vatican Council, USSR

MONTREUX, Switzerland,
(JTA)—Delegates to a confer-
ence of the executive commit-
tee of the World Jewish Con-
gress , discussed at the opening
session the problem of protec-
tion of human rights in Latin
American countries; the rela-
tionships between the Catholic
Church and Jews; and the fate
of Soviet Jewry.
The delegates expressed the
hope that the friendly attitude
of the late Pope John XXIII,
and his desire to erase creedal
sources of anti-Jewish antagon-
ism, which has been confirmed
by Pope Paul VI, will be fully
reflected at the resumption of
the Ecumenical Council in
Rome next month.
In London, the Sunday Ob-
server reported from Rome
that the subject of relations
between Jews and Catholics
will be considered when the
Ecumenical Council resumes its
sessions at the Vatican next
month. According to the news-
paper, representatives of the
World Jewish Congress have
already discussed the issue
with the Vatican's Secretariat
for Promoting Christian Unity,
- headed by Augustin Cardinal
Bea. The newspaper also fea-
tured an article on Catholic-
Jewish relations by Zachariah
Shuster, European director for
the American Jewish Commit-
tee.
Delegates approved unani-
mously Tuesday a resolution
expressing hope that the ap-
parent easing of East-West ten-
sions might lead to equality of
rights for Soviet Jews as well
as for all other peoples in the
Soviet Union.
The resolution pinned the
hopes for the future of the
Jews of all countries on the
nuclear test ban treaty. Then
the resolution expressed the
continuing deep concern of
the organization over the
plight of Soviet Jewry and
stressed the hope that the
new international situation
