Genocide Convention, Hit USSR Bias
Special to The Jewish News
NEW YORK — The American
Jewish Press Association, at its
convention here last week-end,
took a strong stand in support of
the civil rights bill pending in
Congress; urged the defeat of the
Becker Amendment that would
negate the Supreme Court rulings
on religion in the schools; appeal-
ed to the U. S. Senate to ratify the
UN Genocide Convention and
registered concern over the status
of the Jews in Russia.
The convention paid honor to
one of its former presidents,
Jacques Back, on his 30th anniver-
sary as editor of the Observer of
Nashville. Tenn. It also honored
the Jewish Ledger of Hartford on
its 35th anniversary.

A number of national leaders
addressed the convention. At a
brief session at the American-
Israel Pavilion at the World's
Fair, the delegates conferred with
Nathan Straus III, chairman of
the pavilion corporation.
Addresses also were delivered
by Boris Smolar and Victor Bien-
stock of the JTA and Nathan Zip-

American Jewish communi-
ties and their leaders were ad-

unless they assure a strong
English-Jewish press and thereby
strengthen commun ications
among Jews there will be an in-

the ability of U.S. Jewry to sur-
The warning was made at the
convention of the Jewish pub-
lishers by Philip Slomovitz, editor
of The Detroit Jewish News. Re-
ferring to the new volume "Inter-
marriage." by Dr. Albert Gordon
and the article in Look magazine,
"The - Vanishing American Jew,"
Slomovitz charged that the lessen-
ing Jewish interests are due in
great measure to a lack of knowl-
edge about the Jewish position in
the world occasioned by limited
communication. He told the con-
vention of the American Jewish
Press Association that in only a
very few communities are there
flourishing English-Jewish papers
that can reach all ages of Jewish
readers and that the lack of inter-
est in the Jewish press by Jewish
national movements is the most
determined aspect of present-day
Slomovitz said that an optimis-
tic occurrence is the increasing in-
terest now being shown in the
work of the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency which he described as a
most vital factor on Jewish sur-
