Renee Kahn to Become Rabbi Kirshblum Challenges ZOA's Election Action
Mrs. Leslie Robinson
Commenting on reports in The quested of President Torczyner to Nevertheless the chairman enter-

Jewish News about the decision of
the national executive committee
of the Zionist Organization of
America, at a meeting in Miami
Beach, to open the road for Jac-
ques Torczyner to have another
term as president, Rabbi I. Usher
Kirshblum challenged the deci-
sion.
Reacting to the recommendation
of the NEC to amend the ZOA con-
stitution, Rabbi Kirshblum, who
is a candidate for the ZOA presi-
dency, said:
"Prior to that meeting I had re-

call a special meeting of the NEC
in the East in order to afford a
maximum number of members to
attend. That request was denied.
Aptgarently the president was in-
terested in having a small, rather
than a large, attendance. At Miami
I had requested a closed ballot in
accordance with Robert's Rules of
Order which states, 'As the usual
object of the ballot is secrecy,' ...
'any motion is out of order which
members cannot oppose without
exposing their views on the ques-
tion to be decided by ballot.'

tained a motion for an open ballot.
A quorum consists of 50 mem-
bers. The recommendation for
amending the constitution was car-
ried by 29 to 11. Not even a legal
quorum participated in the vote.
Thus it is quite obvious that at
least 10 members abstained from
voting. It was also conceded by
some members of the administra-
tion that had there been a closed
vote at least six people would have
defected to our side. Rather than
feeling disheartened by the vote I
was greatly encouraged and feel
confident that the delegates at the
convention in Los Angeles will re-
ject the idea of amending our con-
Mrs. Ronald Rowe (left) and Mrs. William Dillon, members of stitution for a second consecutive
Kappa Iota Soro- year to suit the personal ambitions

LETTER BOX

Landsmanshaf ten Merger
Needed for Survival

Editor. The Jewish News:
The passing of Philip Kutnick,
who was dedicated to Jewish com-
munal work, adds to the shrinking
rosters of the landsmanshaften or-
ganizations struggling for survival
due to the dwindling of their mem-
berships.
A case in point is the Chaim
Weizrnann Society, which is pre-
sently striving to merge with one
or more societies in order to carry
on with its charitable functions. In

deference to the departed mem-
bers, it behooves each and every
organization which is in a .pinih'
to .seek a merger and thus peril
tuate the ideals of the founder and
members who have gone to tfie
Olam haEmet.
Even large orders, such as
Workmen's Circle and Farband
have instituted a joint program of
Yiddish cultural activities, which
may be the forerunner of a formal
merger.

wrong it is to put the Jews and
Arabs in one basket! How strange
such words sound in the mouth of
a well educated and distinguished
leader who was regarded as an im-
portant person in foreign affairs!
To our great regret, Mr. War-
burg was not the only one among
the assimilated Jewish families
with such an approach. The best
they do is give charity, maybe to

have "rakhmones" with poor Jews,

Mr. Warburg was not impressed
by the tragedy of the Jewish peo-

of returning to the land of their
forefathers.
Of course, no one can have any
objection to helping the Arab refu-

the chauvinistic policy and atti-
tude of their leaders. But, how
