NEW YORK—The Anti-Defama-
tion League of Bnai Brith reported
Wednesday that 87 percent of the
private employment agencies in
New York and five other cities
it had approached in a random
sampling disregard federal, state
and local statutes which forbid
employment discrimination. Of 388
agencies queried in New York, Los
Angeles, Phoenix, Atlanta, Chicago
and Miami, the ADL said, 358 ac-
cepted orders for a "white gentile"
or 'white protestant' secretary.
The study was part of a general
ADL report on white collar em-
ployment practices and problems
being submitted to the Federal
Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission. Arnold Forster, gen-
eral counsel of ADL, said that "not
only did an overwhelming majority
of the agencies accept discrimina-
tory job orders, but their comments
revealed an utter disregard for
fair employment laws."
