Negro Group Compares Experience
in Ghetto to That of German Jews

NEW YORK (JTA)—A chapter
of the Congress of Racial Equality,
several of whose members are un-
der a city investigation on charges
of anti-Semetic behavior, issued a
manifesto here comparing Negroes
in the United States with the Jews
in Nazi Germany, asserting "as it
happened to them, it can happen
to us."
The Brooklyn chapter of CORE
made the comparison to explain
why it planned to leave the ghetto
to "establish a new world. - The

Israelis Asked to Host
Volunteers on Holidays

TEL AVIV (.TTA) — Jewish
Agency officials have called on
Israeli citizens to serve as High
holy Day hosts to the volunteers
who came to Israel to help during
the May-June crisis and the Six-
Day War.
An agency official said that 1.000
families were needed in this city
as hosts to volunteers planning to
spend the holiday here. There are
about 6,000 volunteers still re-
maining in Israel.
A survey carried out among
2,500 volunteers showed that
over 60 per cent have decided to
remain in the Jewish state, it
was reported Wednesday by
Amichal Tzur, head of the gov-
ernment office for volunteers.
Tzur said that many have opted
to settle permanently in kibutzim
and that others have chosen to reg-
ister at universities or to stay on
in their positions long enough to
investigate the conditions for per-
manent settlement.
"Most volunteers are different
from our Israeli youth," Tzur add-
ed. The majority of them are in-
dividualists, he said, with whom "a
common language" must be found.
He emphasized that immigration
to Israel was still a basic need,
even though the country "wel-
comed" the volunteers. "They can-
not save Israel," he said, "the vol-
unteers always come too late."

Whitey's plan is the same" for the
Negro. "We Black Militants note
the similarity" between Negroes
in the United States "and the Jews
in Germany. We pray that the hand

happened to them, it can happen
to us."
In recent months, members of
the CORE chapter had been
active in a struggle for better
schools for children in slum
areas. That struggle brought a
charge from the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith that CORE
members in Brooklyn and Queens
had been guilty of "blantant and
