Counterattack on
Ultra-Right, Left


Concerned by a rising trend of
extremism — right and left — in
New Jersey, a group of prominent
civic leaders has organized • the
"New Jersey Committee to Pre-
serve the Democratic Processes."
It is led by leaders in labor, ed-
ucation, politics, business and in-
dustry and the professions, re-
ligion and welfare. Its goal: to ral-
ly community defenses against ex-
tremist attacks.
Ronald Sullivan, in a New York
Times article, reported Tuesday
that membership in the John
Birch Society has "quadrupled in
the last 12 months, with the state
now ranking second only to Cali-
fornia in membership growth."
Although a small fraction of
New Jersey's total population,
the 4,000 to 5,000 Birchers make
a big impact with publicity.
Sullivan points out that up to
_ now much of the fight against
radical right organizations and
the Birch Society has been led
primarily by the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith and other
Jewish service agencies, such as
the American Jewish Committee
"because radical right extremism
and anti-Semitism traditionally
have tended to keep each other
The new organization hopes to
act as a clearing house for intelli-
gence reports on the radical right
and left in New Jersey. It also
would provide speakers and offer
guidance to communities and or-

TEL AVIV — Shimon Peres,
one of the top leaders of Rafi, the
dissident party headed by former
Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion,
charged here Monday night that
Premier Levi Eshkol is "purging"
important office holders because
"he wants only yes men in posi-
tions of influence" in his adminis-
Noting the recent resignation of
Dr. Ernst Bergmann from the
chairmanship of the Israeli Atomic
Energy Commission, which he
said was "part of the political
purges," Peres named among the
leaders that have been "purged"
such personalities as former Min-
later of Justice Dov Joseph; former
Minister of Agriculture Moshe
Dayan; Minister of Development
Yosef Almogi; Teddy Kollek,
former director general of the
premier's office; and Zvi Tsur,
former chief of staff of the Is-
rael Defense Forces. All, he
charged, were forced out because
f Eshkol's "insistence on yes
Peres' charges were voiced at a
meeting of the Rafi Council, the
top governing body of the new
party. Ben-Gurion, addressing the
session, rejected proposals that
Rafi join the government coalition
"within the next four years. We
must demonstrate our aim of serv-
ing the nation," he said.

(Do you wonder what it was before they changed it?)

As far back as we remember, (and that's back to 1925), Florsheim has been
Florsheim and Florsheim has been quality.

And we should know, because we sell more of them than anyone else in
town. Just take a look at any one of our stores and you'll see why they're
so popular. Take the Phillips Men's Store at Northland, for example.

Simply stated, our Men's Store is beautiful and comfortable. From the
captains' chairs - to the fireplace to the carpeting, here's a store with all
the feeling of a fine gentlemen's club. But the Florsheim prices still start
at a beautiful and comfortable $19.95. And there's more. There's that staff
of Phillips fitters. Experts. Plus that relaxing, get-away-from-women-
shoppers feeling. And our tremendous selection of Florsheims and Hush

Come and see for yourself. It's easy to find Phillips Men's Store. Park in
Lots "G" or "H" at the south end of the center. Right near a fine store
called Best & Company.
