Jewish Community Council Stresses
Opposition to Private School Aid Bill

AND

In a statement to Gov. Romney,
Lt. Gov. Milliken and to key legis-
lative leaders, the Jewish Commun-
ity Council expressed "firm oppo-
sition" to pending bills to provide
public funds to the parents of non-
public school children.
Dr. Samuel Krohn, president of
the council, which includes 300
local Jewish organizations among
its affiliates, stated that the op-
position was based equally upon
concern for public school finances
and upon an "improper involve-
ment" of government in religious
activities. Pointing out that the
so-called "Parochiaid" bill would
divert $21 to $25,000,000 of public
education funds to private schools,
Dr. Krohn referred to the over-
whelming needs of Michigan's pub-
lic sch ools. This need was
affirmed, he stated, by the asset/-
lion of the president of the State
Board of Education that the cur-
rently proposed budget is $67,-
000,000 short of actual needs for
public education.

FHA Counseling Service to Help in Housing Search

A free housing counseling serv-
ice to help people who are having
difficulty finding housing they can
afford has been introduced here,
Eddie McGloin, director of the
Detroit insuring office of the Fed-
eral Housing Administration an-
nounced.
The counseling program, already
instituted in 15 other cities , has
been especially useful to low- and
moderate-income families, minority
group members and others facing
housing problems, McGloin said.
Housing counselors in the local
office will interview families and
individuals seeking advice on hous-
ing.
The program works in coopera-
tion with private real estate
brokers and other housing sources.

The service will be located in
the FHA insuring office in the
Book Building, 1249 Washington
Blvd. For appointments, call 226-
6081 or 226-7231.

An exibition of sculpture by
MILTON HEBALD wil be held
from March 6 to March 30 at the
London Arts Gallery, 321 Fisher
Building.
