the aged, can be undertaken by
the community under current
Federal legislation regarding fi-
nancing and subsidization.
The urgent need for such plan-
ning was indicated in two special
articles in recent issues of The

and other organizations. He is

and capital needs committee of
Federation and was vice president
of the Detroit Service Group. In
1963 he received the Fred M.
.Butzel Award for distinguished
communal service.
The committee on independent
appeals under Lefton's aegis will
help develop an
orderly approach
to independent
drives. It will
implement t h e
"Guidelines for
Federation Lead-
ers on Independ-
ent Appeals", re-
cently published,
as approved by
t h e Federation
board of govern-
ors. Lefton, pre-
campaign chair-
man of the Al-
lied Jewish Cam-
paign, is a vice
president of

Toronto Police Chief Denies Charge of Bias

TORONTO (JTA) — Answering
charges of bias against Jews and
other minorities in police recruit-
ing policies, Toronto Police Chief
James Mackey denied that the force
prefers men of British origin. He
said that the Toronto force had
more than 85 non-Anglo-Saxon po-
licemen, though he said he could
not give exact figures.
He added that the force had ad-
vertisements in the "ethnic press"
to recruit "anyone who was in-
terested and qualified." Chief
Mackey made the statement in
reply to a charge made by an
attorney, Arthur Maloney, at the
Canadian Bar Association.
The police official said that,
currently, there was one Jewish
cadet on the force, and that there
had been a few other Jewish po-
licemen in the past but they had
quit. He asserted that strong
Jewish family ties tended to
make young Jews follow their
father's professions or take over
the father's business.
The attorney also had charged
that "complete and utter ignor-

ance" of a minority group's cus-
toms had been shown in the arrest
of Rabbi Norbert Leiner on a Jew-
ish Sabbath in 1962, which led to a
Royal Commission inquiry. Chief
Mackey replied that, since that in-
cident, the force had instituted
courses familiarizing its men with
the customs and practices of
various faiths.
