"LETTER BOX"

Foe of Nazism
Cites One of 'Men
With Consience'

Editor, The Jewish News:
After reading about "Echoes of
Nazism" one can't help naming
The Jewish News editor among
men with conscience.
The editor of The Detroit Jewish
News brings up numerous cases
of Nazi rebirth and asks the ques-
tion, how long does one ignore it,
advocating to expose the ugly
head of bigotism and smash it if
possible.
His article mentions an inter-
view with an American Nazi
leader "Colonel" Welch, who re-
veals that his "Fuehrer" Rockwell
is going to run for governor of
Virginia on the independent ticket.
The way things are going in the
South the white supremists would
be ready to elect a Rockwell who
would "solve their nigger prob-
lem." Under present conditions,
chances are that a head of a Nazi
party and a Hitler worshiper
could be elected for governor of a
state in the U. S.
Can you imagine the faith of our
southern Jews?
If this, God forbid, happened,
how would some of our Jewish
leaders explain their shush-up
policy about hiding publicity for
American Nazis?
To add to the irony, Rockwell's
Nazi-comrade in Germany, Bruno
Ludtke, stated that Nazism will
come first in America (the coun-
try that was supposed to have de-
feated it).
Hard-core Nazi of f i c e r s are
being trained in the U.S.A. They
are looking forward to riots on the
streets of America and an econo-
mic depression that will enable
the American Nazi Party to seize
power.
Even if we don't have to take it
at face value, we can't afford to
ignore the fact that Nazism is on
the upsurge.
In case the Nazis succeed in
grabbing power, they already have
a place for the American people.
The Jews in the gas chambers,
the colored people back to Africa

and the democratic traitors on the
g a l l o w s in front of the White
House.
People are growing tired of the
Nazis' poisonous doctrine. It's
about time the American people
should tell them where to go.
A more effective movement for
legal elimination of this cancerous
hate party is needed.
The world may stop buying our
brand of Democracy unless we get
rid of Nazism in this country.

ACLU Defends

Stand on Clan

Editor, The Jewish News:
Your commentary entitled
"ACLU on Wrong Track on Klan
Issue" in the Feb. 26 issue of The
Jewish News leaves me with the
impression that you have not had
an opportunity to read the entire
ACLU statement on this important
question.
You state that "because the
ACLU dislikes the House Commit-
tee on Un-American Activities does
not mean that it is on safe ground
when it would give a free hand—
without danger from investigators
—to a hooded group."
In fact, the ACLU statement
specifically makes clear that any
overt acts, physical harrassment or
violence fall within the category
of criminal law which the Depart-
ment of Justice has the clear au-
thority to investigate and prose-
cute.
The comment further says "if
any questions arise as to the de-
partment's adequate enforcement
of these laws, the House Un-Ameri-
can Activities Committee is cer-
tainly not the unit to review this
issue . . this function is within
the specific authority and respon-
sibility of the House Judiciary
Committee."
It is not our dislike for the
House Committee on Un-Ameri-
can Activities, but rather, our
strong support of constitutional
rights and liberties for all, that
is at the base of our concern
with HUAC. In our view, investi-
gation by any agency of the gov-
ernment of views, ideas and as-
sociations (separate and apart
from overt acts) is in violation
of the clear prohibitions of the
First Amendment with respect
to freedom of speech, press and
assembly.
The history of the gross abuse
of power by HUAC is too well
known to need review here. We
are not persuaded that an exten-
sion of the committee's illegal in-
vestigations and activities to such
hate groups as the Klan, the Min-
utemen, etc., makes more palatable
its violations of the rights of per-
sons called before the committee
or its invasion into the protected
areas of speech, press and associ-
ation,
Sincerely yours,
ERNEST MAZEY
Executive Director
ACLU of Michigan

`Ex-Detroiter' Protests
School Board Action

Editor, The Jewish News:
I am in favor of an integrated
society, but oppose the chaotic
conditions being planned by the
muddled thinking of the Detroit
Board of Education. It is causing
de facto reversed busing without
even the advantage of provision
of buses in the Vandenberg School
District.
The Vanderberg school is un-
derpopulated, and now it is plan-
ned to transfer children in the
7th and 8th grades to a new ju-
nior high school in the most dan-
gerous and depressed Wyoming-
Pembroke area. This is a school
that is far away from the home
site of the Vandenberg area and
will be overcrowded.
It will serve to force people
who are now receptive to and wel-
come integration to leave the
city.

PITTSBURGH — The Jewish!
' Chronicle of Pittsburgh has an-
nounced plans for an independent
research study of its impact on the
Jewish community of greater Pitts-
burgh.
The study will be directed by
Dr. Jiri Nehnevajsa, chairman of
Pittsburgh University's department
of sociology and university director
of research. More than 2,000 read-
ers, chosen in a scientific sampling
of all Chronicle readers, will be
asked to fill out a questionnaire,
prepared under Dr. Nehnevajsa's
direction.
The questionnaire will seek to
learn the characteristics of Chron-
icle readers, their reading prefer-
ences and their differentiation as
between material they read in the
Jewish weekly and similar material
in the general press. The study
also will seek to learn what kind
of advertising
readers
look for and how they respond to it.
The questionnaire will be sent
not only to Chronicle readers in
Pittsburgh but also to readers liv-
ing in overseas countries, including
Israel.
Dr. Nehnevajsa was invited to
make the study by the Pittsburgh
Jewish Publication and Education
Foundation, which publishes the
weekly.
