'Between You
... and Me

(Copyright, 1964, Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)

Soviet Echoes:

The more light is thrown on the notorious Soviet anti-Semitic
book, "Judaism Without Embellishment," the uglier are the facts
that emerge . . . A copy of the book now before me shows that
this outrageous piece of anti-Jewish propaganda is the work not
of one person but of a group of Soviet intellectuals and high
Communist officials in the Ukraine . . . In other words, it is the
crime not of one person but is actually a "collective crime," as
the Soviet press would call it in its jargon, if the guilty are ever
put on trial before a Soviet court . . . The blame for this vicious
book, published by the Academy of Science of Soviet Ukraine,
is put naturally on its author, Trofim Kichko . . . However, when
one who can read the Ukrainian language — the book is published
in Ukrainian — sees the printed volume, he cannot help but
notice the credit which a number of others take for the book,
proudly having their names displayed on the inside of the cover
page . . . Credit for editing this anti-Jewish piece of "literature"
is given to editor V. S. Tchumachenko . . . The Nazi-like anti-
Jewish cartoons, done in the style of the notorious Nazi publica-
tion "Der Stuermer," are credited the "art editor," V. M. Teplia-
kov, and to the "art technician," M. 0. Savcheno . . . Two more
names appear on the page to whom credit is given, and two other
names — one of a Soviet professor, and the other of a Soviet
writer — appear under a four-page introduction to the book,
endorsing its contents and lauding it . . . The joint introduction,
signed by A. Vedenski, a professor of history, and by "writer"
Grigori Plotkin, is as anti-Semitic as the book itself and full of
shameless falsehoods and high-powered anti-Jewish incitement
. .. The most startling discovery on the book's inside cover page
is the official announcement that the manuscript has been
"endorsed for publication" by the Soviet authorities . . . Even
the date of that written endorsement is given — Oct. 12, 1963.

A more efficient method of
preparing hospital patients for
barium enema X-ray examina-
tion that has resulted in an
annual savings to Sinai Hospital
of Detroit of $10,500, has been
entered in the 1964 6th Search
for New Hospital Achievements
Contest conducted by the Mich-
igan Hospital Association.
The new procedure, submit-
ted by Dr. Howard H. Feigelson,
director of Sinai's department
of radiology, is a more efficient
way of preparing patients for
barium enema examination and
since it was instituted in the
hospital in 1960 has realized its
savings through a sharp drop in
the number of patients that had
to be re-examined. Prior to the
use of the new techniques de-
veloped by Dr. Feigelson, over
20 per cent of all barium enema
examinations had to be repeated
because of poor preparation.
Since the institution of the new
preparation methods, the repeat
examinations has been dropped
to 8 per cent.

Allan Barth, of Lansing,

Suppressed Desires:

A collective trial of all those involved in planning and
publishing such a violently anti-Jewish book as "Judaism Without
Embellishment" would definitely bring out the fact that the book
is actually an expression of the hatred which many Ukrainian
intellectuals feel toward Moscow, even though they pose as
Communists . . . They cannot come out with inciting propaganda
against Moscow, so they release their stored up hatred by pub-
lishing propaganda against the Jews, although Jews play no
significant role now in the Soviet machinery . . . They cannot
speak openly against the Communist Party, so they speak in the
book against the Jews in the Communist Party . . . The book
alleges that the Jews have, after the Communist Revolution,
formed a Jewish section of the Communist Party "in order to be
able to actively spread propaganda among Jews for the ideology
of Zionism and Judaism under the camouflage of wide legal
possibilities" . . . The fact that the book is published in the
Ukrainian language — which no Russian and very few Jews can
read and understand — shows that the book, was intended as
inciting propaganda among Ukrainians, rather than to tell Jews
that their religion is no good . . . If the book were intended for
anti-religious propaganda it would have been published in Yiddish,
since Ukrainians are not practicing the Jewish religion anyway
. . . In this connection, it is remarkable how the general press
in the United States has mistakenly created the impression that
the book was withdrawn from sale in the Moscow book stores .. .
The book was probably never on sale in Moscow, since Russians
cannot read the Ukrainian language . . . The question is: was the
book withdrawn from sale in the Ukraine? . . . And this is so far
not the case . . . It is no secret that Soviet Premier Khrushchev
has always tried to appease the nationalistic feelings of the
Ukrainians, but only a statement from him condemning the book
can prevent further vitriolic anti-Jewish propaganda in the
Ukraine . . . A statement from him plus a public trial of those
in the Ukraine who have gone as far as publishing deliberately
the book "Judaism Without Embellishment" over which even
Commuists parties in numerous lands are furious.

Ritholz Bases Plea
on Anti-Semitic Quote

Benjamin D. Ritholz, Chicago
millionaire imprisoned after his
conviction of trying to bribe the
State Board of Optometry in
1956, hopes to win his freedom
on the basis of an alleged anti-
Semitic remark.
The remark, which was quoted
by Rev. Marshall Rectory when
he thought he was on his death-
bed three months ago, was
linked to a member of the
Optometry Board.
The Ritholz plea claims
Chauncey Howe, board mem-
ber, said: "The — Jew thought
he could trap us, but we
trapped him instead."
Ritholz' attorneys argued to
Gov. Romney at a public hear-
ing that the remark related by
Rev. Rector shows entrapment
of Ritholz and justifies his re-
lease at once from Jackson State
The clergyman, thinking he
was dying, told the story to
Rabbi Leon Swartz, Jewish
chaplain at J a c k s on State
Prison, and it came to the at-
tention of a state parole board
Gov. Romney said he would
have the matter investigated.
