Petition Drive to Urge

The community relations com-
mittee of the Jewish Community
Council has endorsed the petition
drive being co-ordinated by Com-
munity Action Neighbors North-
west (CANN) to request that the
mayor fill existing vacancies on
the Detroit police force with quali-
fied Negro applicants.
In order to attract more Negro
applicants, new methods or recruit-
ing geared at the Negro applicant
have been recommended; however,
it is emphasized that this should be
facilitated without any lowering of
present standards.

At present, the Negro popula-
tion of Detroit is approximately
35 per cent while only 5 per cent of
Detroit police officers are Negroes.
The Kerner Report was cognizant
of a situation true of Detroit as in
most large nothern cities, that an
imbalance in numbers has helped
to contribute to the present lack
of communication between law en-
forcement officers and Negro citi-

Congressman Asks Probe of Racist Threats in

Rep. Broyhill, who is a key mem-
ber of the House Committee on
District Affairs, charged that busi-
ness life here is "under a pall of
fear because of hoodlumism and
racial chauvinism somewhat similar
to that advanced by the Nazis in
the Germany of the 1930s."

The Congressman charged spe-
cifically that black power militants
are trying to harass local Jewish
merchants out of business by ac-
cusing them of running "Jew
stores" and other accusations.
"Black Power has unleashed a
segregationist, racist, discrimina-
tory and even anti-Semitic cam-
paign against individuals in the
District of Columbia solely because

the project.
The experiments by the Tech-

Broyhill said. He added that there
was evidence of "coercive and con-
spiratorial activity to deprive white
businessmen of the right to en-
gage in legitimate and free trade."

Joel T. Broyhill, Virginia Republi-
can, announced in a House speech
Tuesday that he has asked the
U. S. attorney-general to investi-
gate and prosecute any conspiracy
by black power extremists to har-
ass Jewish and non-Jewish white
minorities in the District of Colum.
