A fresh look at the changes that have taken place during the
last years in the community program to develop young leadership has
now been taken by the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare
Funds . • . in 1958, there were 40 communities with some form
of leadership training programs; currently there are at least 60
communities which have systematic training programs with varying
patterns . . . Approximately 1,500 young men and women participated
in these programs during 1964 . . . Regional and intercity meetings
have been held each year since the CJFWF leadership development
plan came into being in 1958, and a joint UJA-CJFWF leadership
intercity meeting will be held in Columbus, Ohio, in September . . .
In the meantime, CJFWF recently sent a questionnaire to the commu-
nities with leadership development committees, to have a clear picture
on the changes in leadership development programs that have taken
place in recent yearS . . . An analysis of the replies received so far
from 37 communities establishes the following facts . . . The age
range of people participating in local leadership development programs
is 21 to 40; however, the majority of the cities concentrate on the group
from 25 to 35 years of age . . . Detroit has two specific leadership
development programs: one is the Junior Division — 18 to 38 years
of age, and the other is a Biennial Leadership Institute, for men 28
to 38 with experience in communal affairs . . . In the reporting
communities, 17 local leadership programs were for men only; five
communities have separate programs for men and women; two have
men and women jointly; two are geared to husbands and wives; and
one has a wommen only program . . . The number of persons involved
in the programs ranges from a low of 18 to a high of 125, with the
average group between 30 and 40 . . . Montreal, in addition to smaller
groups, has a luncheon group which attracts about 125 participants
. . Minneapolis has "open meetings" which attract about 100, held
twice annually in addition to its Institute of Social Planning . . .
Uniformly the persons selected for local leadership development
programs have been recommended by community leaders, local
agencies, local chapters of national agencies, temple groupings and
from the campaign divisions . • . Most of the communities conduct
annual programs . . . Cleveland conducts its program every other year.

serving a Negro was even a topic of discussion in all-white hotels,
the spotlight was focused on discrimination against Jews . • . Even
as late as seven years ago, the Anti-Defamation League established
that about 23 per cent of the American resort hotels were refusing
admission to Jewish guests . . . The ways in which these hotels
expressed their anti-Semitism ranged from oblique references to
blatant affirmations . .. Today, there are still about 190 resort hotels
and motels which refuse admission to Jews . . . They constitute less
than 10 per cent of hotels which provide facilities for vacationers,
and almost half of them are within the two states that are recognized
as the vacation playgrounds of America — Arizona and Florida . . .

guests in-season, looked the other way during conventions, since
virtually all trade and professional groups included Jews . . . When
the lists of discriminatory hotels were disseminated among civic,
trade and professional organizations, many of these groups refused to
hold their conventions in resort. places practicing bigotry . . . Very
helpful in the campaign against anti-Jewish resort hotels, were such
groups as the American Hotel Association. the American Society of
Association Executive and the International Association of Convention
Bureaus which recommended that no conventions be held in hotels
where Jews are not wanted .. . Thus, many of the resorts which prac-

profit . . . They decided that bigotry does not pay.

German Jewish Council Appeals to Officials
to Prevent Meeting of Former SS Members

G. Van Dam, secretary general of
the Council of Jews in Germany,
appealed to West German officials
to intervene against plans of
former members of the SS from
Belgium and the Netherlands to
hold a meeting Saturday in West
The former SS members, now
members of a European Commit-
tee for Hero Worship, with head-
quarters in Antwerp, met in
Muenstereife, in North Rhine
Westphalia, in 1963, the same
place set for the July 4 meeting.
They were forbidden last year
to hold any public activities
other than a memorial service,
but speeches were delivered and
a torchlight procession was held.

Officials here said that the West
German Embassy raised the issue
with the Belgian Foreign Office,
which said that, under Belgian
law, there was no way to prevent
Belgians from organizing meetings
of that kind in West Germany.
Socialist Party members asked
Willy Wyer, North Rhine West-
phalia interior minister, whether
he planned to reject the applica-
tion of the SS group for permis-
sion to hold the July 4 meeting.
Dr. Van Darn met with the in-
terior minister for a discussion of
the situation and also asked the
West German interior minister.
Hermann Hocherl, to intervene.
