Urban Betterment Projects Listed
for Community Council Members

The Jewish Community Council
has made available to selected
member organizations a listing of
projects related to urban activities
which rely on citizen support for
im plementation.
The listing was developed as a
respon s e to several organizations
which had expressed an interest
and desire to be involved in some
form of urban activity.
Included in the listing is an
inner-city consumer research pro-
gram which attempts to sharpen
the buying skills of low-income
persons and to promote protective
legislation and better enforcement
of consumer protection laws.
Another project requires the use
of a bus to transport children to
cultural and recreational sites

counselor of the Soviet Embassy
received a delegation of Jewish
students which came to protest the
treatment of the Jews in the Soviet
Union and assured them that
"Everything is all right with the
Soviet Jews."
(Attempting to prove that there
was no need for demonstrations
and protests, he gave the students
a handful of official statements on
the status of the Jews in Russia.
Demonstrations were also held in
Geneva under the auspices of the

A former member of the Wayne
County Board of Supervisors, Cohn
also served on the advisory com-
mittee of the United Foundation, as
president of the Urban League of
Detroit, president of the Michigan
Bnai Brith Hillel Foundation, and
vice president of the United He-
brew Schools.
He was honored in 1966 at the
28th annual banquet of the Coun-
cil of Orthodox Rabbis of Detroit
for "outstanding and dedicated
leadership and a lifetime of charit-
able endeavors." Last year, Cohn
served as chairman of the Israel
Emergency Cash Mobilization
Campaign in Detroit. A former
chairman of the Allied Jewish
Campaign, he also headed the De-
troit Israel Bond Organization.
In 1949, he was appointed to the
Detroit House of Correction Com-

SANTIAGO, Chile (JTA) — A
severe editorial condemnation of
Soviet anti-Semitism appeared last
week in La Nacion, a leading
Chilean government organ. The
paper traced the problem of anti-
Semitism in Russia from Czarist
days and found little difference in
its status today under the Commu-
nist regime.
The editorial quoted anti-Semitic
citations appearing in a book pub-
lished in Moscow in 1966 entitled
"Fundamental Questions of Scien-
tific Atheism." The paper gave de-
tails on the suppression of Jewish
life in the Soviet Union, beginning
with the closing of Jewish schools
in 1952.
