ADL Chief Suggests League
Take 2nd Look at Strong Stand
on Church-State School Issue

NEW YORK (JTA) — Dore
Schary, chairman of the Anti-De-
famation League of Bnai Brith,
called upon the ADL here Sunday
to re-examine its traditionally
strong stand regarding the prin-
ciple of the separation of church
from state, especially as that is-
sue relates to education.
Schary made that proposal in
addressing the 54th annual meet-
ing of its national commissioners,
which concluded its policy-making
deliberations Monday.
Other principal matters before
the current session included ad-
dresses by Philip M. Klutznick,
honorary president of Bnai Brith,
Benjamin R. Epstein, ADL na-
tional director, and Arnold R.
Forster, ADL general counsel; a
report showing that the Ku Klux
Klan has increased its strength in
the South in the last year from
20,000 members to 50,000; and an-
other report disclosing that Mexico
City has now become the center
for the publication and widespread
Latin American distribution of
anti-Semitic books in Spanish.
The ADL chairman said that the
educational needs of the country
demand an inspection of the U. S.
Jewish position on state-church re-
lations today because an educa-
tional church-state alliance might
produce fewer dangers than those
"inherent in perpetuating poverty
by failing to provide those educa-
tional services whereby today's
children will be equipped to earn
a living as adults."

Klutznick, former U.S. ambas-
sador to the United Nations,
who, in addition to being honor-
ary president of Bnai Brith, is
also honorary vice president of
the ADL, told the commissioners
that the expanded role of gov-
ernment in social welfare fields
will do as much to reshape the
programs of Jewish vokntary
organizations in America as did
the European holocaust and the
rebirth of Israel. He held that
"dramatic shifts" in government
responsibility make necessary
"an intelligent, independent
probing of realities and poten-
tials" for nongovernment agen-

cies.

Questioning the depth of ad-
vancement in Jewish religious cul-
ture and education, Klutznick not-
ed that one of the principal de-
terrents to greater development
has been the priority accorded to
physical survival. With that prior-
ity lifted, he said, Jewish volun-
tary organizations can concen-
trate more on Jewish education
for youth, the training of much
needed teachers and youth lead-
ers and the creation of curricula
attuned to modern Jewish needs.
The commissioners heard ad-
dresses by U.S. Sen. Jacob K. Ja-
vits and New York State Supreme
Court Justice J. Irwin Shapiro,
and Sunday night, presented its
America's Democratic Legacy
Award to Undersecretary of State
Nicholas deB. Katzenbach.
Javits, alluding to fears express-
ed by many Jews in northern cities
that Negroes were becoming anti-
Semitic, said "We must uphold
justice in society and not do it for
any thanks, notwithstanding what
the Negroes may think of us . . .
The fate of any minority," he said,
"is the fate of all minorities in

SMALL BEQUESTS
BUILD A
STRONG ISRAEL

If the tradition of including the Jewish
National Fund in the Will of every Jew were
invariably followed, sufficient resources would
be accumulated to ensure the future of the
young Jewish State on a sound basis of land
development, social welfare, and justice.

A bequest to the Jewish National Fund
should be as traditional as having a Blue Box
in one's home.

You may want your bequest to be dedi-
cated to afforestation, to a village, a hachlah,
to a children's play area, to perpetual yahrzeit
or kaddish, or to some form of permanent
tribute in the names of persons dear to you.

ments, in strict privacy without obligation or
