ADL Asks Probe of CORE Bias Charge
(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

Friday, June 30, 1967-15

NEW YORK — The New York
City Commission on Human Rights
has been asked by the Anti-Defa-
mation League of Bnai Brith to
investigate "blatant and vicious
anti-Semitic outbursts and racist
behavior" involving the Congress
of Racial Equality in four school
controversies in Negro sections of
the city. The commission said it
was "evaluating" the complaints.
One of the statements filed by
the ADL with the commission as-
serted that a Brooklyn CORE rep-
resentative said at a meeting last
month with school officials "We
have got to get these Jews out of
Bedford-Stuyvesant. It's the Jews
who are to blame." Bedford-
Stuyvesant is a slum area in

Brooklyn CORE chapter officials
have repeatedly denied the chap-
ter was motivated by anti-Jewish
and anti-white feeling. Robert
Carson, community relations direc-
tor of Brooklyn CORE, said the
chapter would welcome an official
inquiry into the issue.

during a recent demonstration,

Carson also asserted that if the
commission investigated both the
ADL and CORE complaints "we
are sure that the commission will
conclude that those principals and
certain teachers have conspired to
miseducate the black and Puerto
Rican children and are hurling
charges of anti-Semitism to hide
this fact."

Against Jewish Grads Seeking Jobs

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Prime Min-
ister Levi Eshkol's Mapai Party
named two committees to negotiate
with Ahdut Avoda and former
Premier David Ben-Gurion's dissi-
dent Israel Workers Party (Rafi)
for a unified Labor party.
The appointments followed re-
ceipt of a letter from Rafi officials
proposing such negotiations and
tentative approval by Ahdut Avoda,
which is presently joined in an
alignment with Mapai, the domi-
nant element in the present coali-
tion government.
Labor Minister Yigal Alton of
Ahdut Avoda and Mrs. Gold Meir,
Mapai secretary-general, speaking
at a kibutz convention, called
Monday for total merger of all
labor parties. Mrs. Meir, who had
previously resisted strongly any
overtures to Rafi, said that the
time was now ripe for such union.
She said all dividing factors be-
tween the parties had disappeared.
The two leaders stressed that
Rafi should also be in the proposed
merger party because many of its
members were eager to return.
Yaacov Hazan of Mapam, speak-
ing at the same convention, said
he also favored union, although
no direct overtures have been
made by Mapai to Mapam. He
suggested however that there be
special autonomy for each of the
participating parties.

BOSTON (JTA)—The law school
of Harvard University was cleared
last week by the Massachusetts
Commission Against Discrimina-
tion of a charge that the school
discriminated against Jewish grad-
uates in job placements.
The commission began an inves-
tigation of the complaint last Feb-
ruary in response to an article in
the Harvard Law Record of Dec. 1
which suggested that Jewish law
graduates might have trouble in
getting jobs in Anglo-Saxon firms.
The article quoted Eleanor Apwd,
head of the law school placement
office, as asserting that "there is
no question that the Jewish boy
is slower to receive an offer for
employment than a Gentile.
The commission said that Miss
Appel was unable to name any
firms which did practice such
disrimination. The commission
report, which also absolved the
placement office, included a let-
ter from Dean Erwin Griswold
of the law school to firms which
hire Harvard graduates.
The letter said that the law

school did not knowingly discrimi-
nate and would not knowingly deal
with any firm that did. The dean
wrote also he hoped his letter
would "make it very clear" where
the Harvard Law School stood on
the issue.
Soon after the Law Record arti-
cle appeared, Dean Griswold
named a three-man faculty com-
mittee to evaluate placement and
other procedures affecting grad-
