Anti-Poverty Official's 'Jewish Mafia'
Accusation Brings Strong Condemnation

NEW YORK (JTA)—Prompt ac-
tion by Mayor John V. Lindsay
was asked by two Jewish organiza-
tions against an anti-poverty offi-
cial for his assertion that the
"Jewish Mafia" had threatened
that if the mayor hoped to become
governor of New York State he
would have to "kill Ocean-Browns-
ville," the experimental school dis-
trict in Brooklyn. Refusal by the
district governing council to accept
a number of teachers touched off
an 11-day city-wide teachers strike
last month.
The complaints to the mayor
were made in separate statements
by the Anti-Defamation League of

Bnai Brith and the Jewish Labor
Committee. Both sharply criticized

Oliver Ramsey, educational di-
rector of the New York City Coun-
cil Against Poverty, the city's
policy-making agency for anti-
poverty programs. Ramsey was

quoted as asserting that the
"Jewish Mafia" of the United Fed-
eration of Teachers had allegedly
made that threat to the mayor.
The ADL said that the "conno-
tations" of the charge were ob-
vious and that the charge not only
indicated anti-Semitism by Ram-
sey but also "a calculated attempt
to foment Negro anti-Semitism
with an allegation which is false."
The ADL noted that the mayor had
appealed for an end to "religious
and racial epithets" in the school
dispute and added that Ramsey's
conduct "makes questionable his
efficacy in the post to which you
a p pointed him. We therefore
strongly urge that you take im-

mediate and appropriate action in
this most serious matter."
The Jewish Labor Committee
urged the mayor to make a clear
statement of public policy on the
"growing use of racial slurs by
officials on the city payroll." Such
statements, the JLC asserted, "add
to the growing tensions between
racial and religious groups in our
community." The JLC demanded
an unequivocal response by Mayor
Lindsay to "curb such irresponsi-
ble and inflammatory actions" and
added that "strong measures"
must be taken to "halt the spread.
ing hate" as essential to the pre-
vention of "further polarization
within our city."

Committee Drafts Plans for Creation
of American Zionist Federation

NEW YORK (JTA)—A com-
mittee representative of all the
constituent organizations of the
American Zionist Council is draft-
ing plans for the establishment of
an American Zionist Federation in
keeping with the decisions taken at
the 27th World Zionist Congress
in Jerusalem last June, Rabbi Is-
rael Miller, council chairman an-
nounced.
The congress called for the cre-
ation of single territorial Zionist
organizations in every country
which would serve as the instru-
ment of a unified Zionist move-
ment. Zionist federations already
exist in several countries but not
in the United States.
Rabbi Miller said the establish-
ment of a federation would not af-
fect the existence of the present
Zionist parties, each of which has
its own ideology and projects in
Israel. It would,, however, be more
all-embracing than the present
American Zionist Council and
