AJComnuttee Sees Greater Efforts to Meet
Kerner Report Recommendations in U. S.

NEW YORK — A summary pre-
pared by the American Jewish
Committee of actions taken both
by private businessmen and volun-
tary organizations over the past 12
months in response to the recom-
mendations of the Kerner Commis-
sion Report has found that "pri-
vate efforts, while insufficient to
the need, have increased consider-
ably."
The evaluation by the American
Jewish Committee, released by
Mervin H. Riseman, chairman of
its domestic affairs committee, as-
serted that while the general com-
mitment to eliminate bigotry and
poverty has not been on a scale
equal to the dimensions of the
problems — many business, labor
and religious leaders are now
more conscious of community re-
sponsibility. aware of urban and
social problems and eager to work
on their solution."
The AJC cited projects by its
national constituency and local
chapters that spanned the United

States.
In the area of Negro-Jewish
relations and black ,anti-Semit-
ism, the AJC concluded that al-
though in some communities
where black extremists were
most visible there may have
been a "slowdown in Jewish par-
' ticipation in anti-poverty and
civil rights work," there remains
among AJC members a solid
conviction that "black extremists
formed a small but raucous mi-

nority," and that Jew's must:
continue to help the disadvan-
taged.

structure."
In addition, AJC national staff
and Detroit Chapter representa-

tives met with the superintendent

JERUSALEM—A site believed to

be the Salt City mentioned in the

Book of Joshua (chapter 15) ha ,
been uncovered beneath an ancient
settleMent found by archaelogists
on the shore of the Dead Sea.
The settlement itself — 10 miles
south of the ruins of Qumran —
dates back to the days of Jesus
and must have been the center of
the desert sect, whose scribes i
penned the Dead 'Sea scrolls, the
announcement said.
The archaeologists, working
under Pessath Baradon, found in
one of the 20 tombs nearby a jar
with the .Hebrew inscription Yo-
banan written in script very simi-
lar to that of the Dead Sea scrolls.
Coins, cooking pots, jars and a
stone lamp were found, as well as
the bases of five pillars with par-
tition walls between them. The
building is believed to be a com-
munity hall of the sect.
