Balfour Day. The proclamation

"WHEREAS, Detroit's Jewish corn-

Zionist Organization of Detroit, hon-
ors and remembers the anniversary
of the Balfour Declaration, the his-
toric British Foreign Office docu-
ment which favored establishment
of a Jewish national homeland in
Palestine; and
"WHEREAS, On this forty-sixth
aniversary of the issuance of the
Balfour Declaration, the focal point
of Detroit observances will be the

Police Investigate
Distribution of Nazi
Leaflets in Toronto
ronto Police Commission and
the Toronto Metro Police Force
gave assurances to the Canadian
Jewish Congress of a thorough
investigation of the strewing on
downtown Toronto streets of
hundreds of neo-Nazi and anti-
Jewish leaflets.
The five-inch square sheets
bore the message: "Hitler was
Right—Communism is Jewish,"
and the address of Box 1371
Arlington, Va., the post office
box of George Rockwell, leader
of the American Nazi Party.
Some of the leaflets fluttered
down in the vicinity of the of-
fices of the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police.
Police at first assumed the
sheets had been dropped from
an airplane but later indicated
they thought they had been
tossed from a high office build-
ing. Rockwell, questioned by
telephone by a Toronto news-
paper, disclaimed responsibility
but said they might have been
scattered by Toronto followers.
He said there were five or six
members of his American Nazi
party in Toronto but declined
to give their names. Canadian
Jewish Congress officials met
for an hour with police officials
on the distribution.

Judge Kaufman asked the au-
dience to stand for one minute
in tribute to the memories of
President Kennedy and Dr.
Abba Hillel Silver.
Carmi Slomovitz listed the
beneficiaries of the annual Bal-
four Concert income and urged
continued action in support of
efforts that will establish close
links between American Jewry
and Israel. He urged emphasis
on work among the youth and
pointed to the educational work
of the movement as an outstand-
ing factor in Balfour Concert
Isaac Stern and the orchestra
were given ovations by the audi-
ence. Valter Poole was notably
effective in his direction. There
was special acclaim for Stern's
interpretation of Saint - Saens'
