Shulman Advocate s Containment
as Concomitant to USSR Peace
Current Far East difficulties,
the puzzles over the unending East-
West struggle, lend added signifi-
cance to a new volume on the Rus-
sion problem by a former De-
troiter, Marshall D. Shulman, who
has gained recognition as an au-
thority on Russia.
In "Beyond the Cold War," pub-
lished by Yale University Press,
Shulman, while emphasizing that
"the conception of containment"
is "a necessary concomitant to the
long-term effort to draw China to-
ward less militant relations with
the rest of the world," declares:
"The effort to strengthen the
Chinese challenge to the Soviet
Union runs the serious risk of
encouraging reckless and mill-
tant actions that may be much
more dangerous than could be
justified by any possible ad-
vantage. Particularly because
our instruments for any such in-
tervention are crude and might
have effects contrary to what
we intend, we ought not attempt
to be unduly clever about trying
to manipulate the parties to this
dispute against each other.
R a t he r we should remem-
ber that we have an interest in
the long-term evolution of both
Presenting a thorough review of
the Cold War, outlining the ten-
sions that existed following World
War II and during the Korean
crisis, Shulman brings the issue
up to date by asserting that "the
central problem is how to sur-
vive this period of events toward
'the strengthening of international
processes which can accommodate
change without violence." He
"Even in the containment of Chi-
nese power, which now begins to
preoccupy us, the lesson of past
experience with the Soviet Union
would be lost if we did not under-
stand and respond to the sources
of conflict which go far beyond
Communism. Our perspectives must
be broad enough to encompass
the period of violent transitions
into which we are moving, in which
It's a far cry from the Hillel
Day School Concert, or even the
Balfour Concert, but Sherman
Shapiro has gone into the Plum
Street project with the same in-
tense concentration of an entre-

several years of the Zionist Or-
ganization of Detroit's Balfour con-
certs, more recently chaired the
Hillel event. with Jan Peerce as
the varied forms of Communism
are understood as complicating
factors entwined among the many
sources of conflict to which our at-
tention must also be directed."
Marshall Shulman, a Harvard
University faculty member, is the
son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry W.
Shulman, of 2641 Woodstock.
Now Shapiro is promoting a
new kind of music to Detroit's
ears; the Plum Street art com-
munity. So impressed was Mayor
Cavanagh with the project's
potential for drawing tourists,
that he has ordered all city de-
partments to give their utmost
Editor, The Jewish News:
May I commend you and the
A.J.P.A. for finally coming up with
a sensible approach to translitera-
ting Hebrew into English. Ob-
viously, under the circumstances,
any decision would have to be
arbitrary and one system is as
good as the other as long as it is
simple and consistent.
I am a little disappointed, how-
ever, in your decision to use the
letter "h" for the Hebrew "hay"
as well as the Hebrew "Khaf" and
"het." As long as you were being
arbitrary you might as well have
gone the whole way and develop-
ed a single symbol to represent
the latter two letters which, for
all practical purposes, are phone-
tically the same. It would make no
difference if it were "ch" or "kh"
or italicized "h" or some other
arbitrary symbol as long as we're
consistent. (I prefer "ch", even
though it has a different sound in
English, because in other foreign
languages it does have a similar
pronunciation to the Hebrew.)
Using the "h" for both Rosh
Hashana and for Hanuka makes it
impossible for the uninitiated to
ever figure out for himself which
to use for less well known
words. Once he learns, for in-
stance, that "ch" is not pronounced
like the English "ch" in check but
rather like the "ch" in German or
Scotch, he will always be able to
pronounce any new words he may

The community is located in an
eight block square area bounded
by Vernor, the Lodge Expressway,
Michigan and Third. Already Sha-
piro and his partner, Robert Cobb,
have 19 lessees in the area,
among them an art gallery, music
shop, book store, newspaper office,
dress shop and gourmet foods store.
By Sept. 1, when the official
opening will take place, there
should be a coffee shop and cafe,
as well as other attractions.
Shapiro envisions, for example,
an outdoor Parisian-style cafe and
an area set off in nearby Elton
Park for outdoor dances, concerts
and a free-speech forum.
The mayor ordered trees and
hanging flowers to be placed
around Plum Street and gave other
directions to the Department of
Public Works and the lighting,

tion to the area in order to make
it the "showplace of the city."
