Bnai Israel Settlers
Continue Protests
on Marriage Bias

mier Levi Eshkol urged a dele-
gation of Bnai Israel settlers
from India to be patient on the
issue of their claims of discrim-
ination in matters of marriage
and not to force the issue. After
the meeting, the delegation said
the Premier's statement was not
acceptable and that they inten-
ded to continue their struggle.
The Premier met with the
Bnai Israelites in accordance
with a pledge made to them last
week in return for which some
25 families ended a month-long
squatters strike outside the of-
fices of the Jewish Agency. The
families had pitched there and
remained in them for the month
as a protest against rabbinical
directives requiring special ex-
amination of their Jewish back-
grounds by marriage registrars
before issuing marriage licenses.
The Premier told the dele-
gation that Bnai Israel settlers
were not regarded as second-
class citizens. Expressing "com-
plete understanding" of their
feelings, the Premier said that
the problem did not originate
in Israel but arose as a result
of the differing backgrounds of
various communities in other
countries. He urged them not
to undertake action likely to
"split the.nation" by forcing
the issue.
The strikers had demanded
cancellation of the rabbinical
directives or repatriation to In-
dia. They contended that inves-
tigation of their family histories
when members applied for mar-
riage to Jews from other com-
munities was tantamount to
apartheid, a reference tb the
separation of colored peoples
in South Africa.
Following the meeting with
the Premier, the families said
they could continue their fight
until the directives were can-
celed and intimated they would
raise the issue again when Par-
liament is reconvened in Octo-

Champion Of Civil Rights

In the controversy that surrounds the
civil rights movement today, it is easy to
lose sight of the fact that civil rights had
many great champions in American his-
tory. Such a champion was Louis Marshall .
Born in 1856, in Syracuse, New York,
Marshall made his mark as a constitutional
lawyer early in life. Among the cases he
argued before the highest Federal and
State courts were those concerned with
workmen's compensation, segregation of
Negroes, alien immigration, and the aboli-
tion of private and parochial schools. In
fact, one of his notable legal triumphs in
the United States Supreme Court was a
decision which* held invalid an Oregon
law that denied Catholics the right to send
their children to parochial schools. A con-
servative Republican, Marshall neverthe-
less was always on the side of minority
groups. He was a champion of the under-
dog in American life.
Typical of Marshall's lifelong interest


in American Jewry was his successful fight

to persuade Congress to annul the Treaty
of 1832 between Russia and the United
States. American Jews carrying American
passports were not treated the same as any
other American citizen by the Russians.
Marshall was principally responsible - for
having the treaty abrogated.
In addition, Marshall was the leading
spokesman of the Committee of Jewish
Delegations at the post-World War I Peace
Conference. It was there that he secured
certain "minority rights" for the helpless,
harried Jews of Europe.
Founder and president of both the
American Jewish Committee and the
American Jewish Relief Committee, Louis
Marshall was also the chairman- of The
Jewish Theological Seminary and of
Dropsie College. Probably, however, he First with the Finest CigaretteS
