Klutznick to Address Campaign Rally on March 22

Philip M. Klutznick, past international president of Bnai Brith and a former U. S. ambassador to the United Nations, will address the
kick-off rally, 8:15 p.m., Wednesday, March 22, to mark the formal opening of the six-week Allied Jewish Campaign, Alfred L. Deutsch,
campaign chairman, announced. Tickets for the rally may be obtained by calling the Jewish Welfare Federation, WO 5-3939.

Klutznick has distinguished himself in Jewish communal affairs, in business and as a public servant. At the call of the late President
Kennedy, he became a member of the United States Mission to the UN and the U.S. representative on the Economic and Social Council. He
returned to private life in 1963.

A real estate developer and urban planner, he planned Israel's Ashdod seaport.

Pre-campaign activities are producing good increases in giving, Deutsch said. He pointed out that "we are approaching the $3,000,000
mark with nearly $300,000 in increased gifts."

"The response to the needs in Israel and in our local community are most gratifying. We are proud that our Detroit community is once
again facing up to its obligations," Deutsch said.

Kaddish, ifieschel Tribute
Mark Service to Dr. Adler

A mass Kaddish recited by a large Shaarey Zedek congre-
gation that assembled at the synagogue Tuesday night was a
deeply moving part of the service that was arranged as a
memorial to Rabbi Morris Adler on the first anniversary of
his passing.
Tributes to the memory of the eminent leader who fell
on the bima of Shaarey Zedek on the morning of Feb. 12,
1966, were paid by Rabbi Irwin Groner and Prof. Abraham
Heschel of New York.

The officers of Shaarey Zedek, headed by Louis Berry,
president, stood with the rabbi and the cantors as Cantor
Sonenklar chanted the El Molei Rahamim.

A Maariv service was conducted by Cantors Jacob H.
Sonenklar and Reuven Frankel, with the assistance of the
Shaarey Zedek choir conducted by Dan Frohman. Psalms
were chanted by Cantor Frankel.

In the main foyer of Shaarey Zedek, the portrait of
Rabbi Adler by Ben Glicker was on display.

The martyred Detroit rabbi was described by Prof. Heschel
as "the symbol of God."

Rancor rose to a high pitch this week in the controversy over the emerging anti-
Semitism in Negro ranks. Anti-Semitic articles that have appeared in the Negro monthly
Liberator brought protests this week from two eminent Negro leaders, and the counterattacks
upon them by the Liberator's editor added fuel to the developing issue.
The two Negro leaders who registered their protests are James Baldwin, author, and
Ossie Davis, actor, whose letters of protest against 'Liberator's anti-Semitic articles appeared in
the new winter issue of Freedomways, described as "a quarterly review of the Negro freedom
Baldwin and Davis resigned froni the Liberator's advisory board as part of their protest.
They stated that they had asked Dan Watts, publisher of Liberator, to carry their letters con-
demning his paper's anti-Semitism but he had rejected their requests.
"I think it is distinctly unhelpful, and I think it is immoral to blame Harlem on the
Jew," Baldwin wrote at the end of a lengthy attack on many aspects of current American life,
in which he indicated he considered anti-Semitism "the most ancient and barbaric of the
European myths."
Davis assails in his letter the "wild and unsupported • contentions" made by Eddie
Ellis in an article, "SemitisM in the Black Ghetto," that appeared in the February 1966 issue of
Liberator. "Where is that proof?" he asks, then he wrote:
"Whatever Jews are guilty of exploiting Harlem are not guilty because they are Jews,
but because — along with many Catholics, Protestants, Negro and white — they are exploit-
ers. In a war against all exploiters whomsoever I am an ally. But Mr. Ellis seems to be calling
for a war against Jews. If that is the case, I am an enemy."
Calling himself a "black nationalist," Davis denounced "black racism" as "no different
from any other racism," and recalled that the late Malcolm X . "at last became wise enough to
see racism as a vicious, destructive crime against the human spirit with most frightening

NEW YORK (JTA)—About half of the 8,000 Arab students now studying
in American universities are conducting a U.S.-financed campaign against
Israel on the campuses at over 100 American colleges and universities,
Jacques Torczyner, president of the Zionist Organization of America,.
charged Sunday. He also alleged that "many of these students are allied
with outright anti-Semitic groups."
The Zionist leader made these charges in connection with the revelation
that the pro-Arab American Friends of the Middle East is listed among the
domestic American organizations that have been provided with American
funds through the CIA.
He further accused the latter organization with being "the driving
force behind the subversive Arab propaganda onslaught on the campuses."
Torczyner spoke before 200 Zionist leaders assembled from all parts
of the country at a meeting of the national executive committee of the
Zionist Organization of America, the ruling body of the organization between
conventions, held in the Hotel New York Hilton.
He sharply criticized the National Student Association, which he
charged "adopted a resolution at a national meeting in Madison, Wisconsin
in August 1965 phrased by the Arab Student Association viciously attacking
the state of Israel."
Torczyner strongly opposed the new attempts made under the new
spirit of ecumenism for a dialogue between religious faiths. He termed
the call of religious elements in this country to fight secularism as
"dangerous." It would be very dangerous at this time to trigger a battle
between -religious and secular elements in the Jewish *community."
He said that "such a battle would split the Jewish community." He
endorsed the position taken by the Orthodox leader, Rabbi Joseph Soleveitchik
who opposed such dialogue as "this can only lead to new difficulties."
Dr. Emanuel Neumann, world Zionist leader, who is national chairman
of the 70th jubilee convention committee, announced that the 70th anniversary
convention of the Zionist Organization of America will be held in Israel in
July with an expected attendance of 1,200 delegates from all parts of the U.SiN
