Aft Meeting Summons 50 Leaders
to Lansing; Air Hole in Social Issues

Over 50 top Jewish leaders of
the state met in Lansing Sunday
to review informally some of the
important social issues facing the
American community today, and
determine if there were a unique
J e wish community contribution
which could be made. Detroit attor-
ney Mrs. Charles Solovich, Mich-
igan chairman of the Anti-Defam-
-4on League of Bnai Brith,
esided.
The morning session was de-
voted to the presentation of two
papers by Dr. Paul Hartman, con-
stitutional authority, and Dr. Nor-
man Drachler, Detroit educator,
on the legal and historical aspects
of church-state relationships in
this country.
"The feeling of the group," said
Mrs. Solovich, "was that in almost
all areas of social concern such as
civil rights, church-state, anti-pov-
erty, politics, civil affairs, and
civil liberties, Jews and Jewish or-
ganizations have distinguished
themselves, along with, and often
in cooperation with, their Chris-
tian counterparts.

"What is needed," she ex-
plained, "is an educational cam-
paign to elicit commitment from
those not yet involved, so that
all citizens know that it is not
only their right but their re-
sponsibility to make their wishes
and desires known through and
in the democratic tradition, and
to participate and support the
voluntary organizations and as-
sociations whose primary pur-
pose is overlapping their own
interests."

Herbert Rubenstein of Lansing,
fourth vice president of the Mich-
igan Council of Bnai Brith Lodges,
was luncheon speaker.
Brief talks were given in the
afternoon by G. Vernon Leopold
of Detroit, Alvin Kushner of
Mount Clemens, Judge Joseph
Pernick of Detroit, and Meyer
Warshawsky of South Haven.

Prime Minister

Levi Eshkol continued talks Wed-
nesday with cabinet ministers and
Arab officials over the tense situa-
tion in Ramla, scene of an attack
by Jewish youths on Arab resi-
dents.
The attack developed after an
accident involving an Arab cab
driver and two Jewish youths on
scooters in which one of the Jew-
ish youths was killed last Friday.
Throngs of Jewish youngsters
staged a march toward the Arab
section of the city near Tel-Aviv,
gut were halted by police. The
_; ouths then began attacking Arab
men, women and children on the
street, injuring 12 of them. Nine-
teen of the Jewish rioters were
arrested.
Among those with whom the
premier discussed the situation
were Police Minister Behor Shi-
treet and officials of the educa-
tion ministry. It was decided that
educational as well as police ac-
tion should be taken to cope with
the problem.
The Magistrate's court in Petach
Tikvah remanded the 19 youths
for a hearing.

Argentine Party Censures
Anti-Israel Delegation

BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — The
Democratic Progressive Party is-
sued a statement censuring the
Argentine parliamentary delega-
tion that recently made anti-Israel
statements while visiting Jordan.
The executive board of the party
said: "Arab countries who de-
clared themselves in a state of
war with a country with which
Argentina maintains friendly re-
lations should not be endorsed by
Argentine members of parlia-
ment."
The statement charged that
Eduardo Gamond, leader of the
delegation touring the Arab coun-
tries, a member of the radical del
Pueblo majority, "forgets that, in
the Middle East, it is not Israel
who ignores United Nations reso-
lutions but the Egyptian dictator."
