Sen. Hart Urged
to Introduce Bill
Against Bigots

In a letter to Sen. Philip
Hart, Detroiter Wolf Levitan
urged introduction of a bill in
Congress to ban activities by
hate groups, both through the
mails and assembly against
minority groups.
Levitan, who frequently com-
ments on current events through
his letters, called Sen. Hart's
attention to the recent flood of
literature from the American
Nazi party and activities by the
Ku Klux Klan.
. .. It is not enough," Levi-
tan wrote, "to punish the guilty
ones, but we should have a
federal law to prohibit the print-
ing of such literature, to ban
the distribution of same and
to prevent their activities be-
fore they can do the miserable
damage to our good people."

LETTER BOX

Correspondent Repelled
by Sale of German Helmets
Editor The Jewish News:
Being a Negro veteran, it has
always seemed to me that the
problems of any one sector of
the community were inseparable
from community problems as a
whole.
I am not writing to you to
speak of social theory.
I noticed an average display
of toys in the window of a
northwest stare. Included in the
display were army kits with the
plastic helmet and various
weapons, and also included was
a kit containing a gray plastic
replica of a German helmet, a
Luger and a burp gun. Having
served in Europe I do not consid-
er myself anti-any-ethnic group,
but am against any system
which prides itself on the abil-
ity to wipe out large groups of
people who commit no other
crime than being different. I
cannot imagine any healthy
curious child who might happen
to have these toys—being con-
tent to play an afternoon as
loser. From TV films the child
is apt to have seen, the most in-
delible impression is not that
those wearing the German uni-
form lost, but that they were
physically brutal, always arro-
gant, always anti-Semitic.
One must assume that a child
immersing himself into the ac-
cepted version of a World War
II German trooper would exhib-
it the outward facets of that
which he has learned to -ac-
quaint with the role he is play-
ing—and the viotim becomes the
Jewish people.
I felt the same revulsion and
angered incredulity I would ex-
pect to experience if I saw a
toy kit at the local drugstore
containing in in lot u r e KKK
hoods, noose and blackwhip! It
does not seem we have yet real-
ized that the growth of hatred
depends upon a moral indiffer-
ence and mental ignorance too
often exhibited in supposedly
minor items.
Sincerely,
Donald L. Ransom
