Three Faiths Back Family Aid Bill in Statement Before Congress Unit

WASHINGTON (JTA) — In an
historic point appearance before
a congressional committee, repre-
sentatives of the federated Jewish,
Catholic and Protestant welfare
agencies of New York City called
upon the U.S. Senate Committee
on Finance to report favorably on
the now pending Family Assistance
Act of 1970, with the elimination
of what they described as "clear
weaknesses" in the proposed leg-
islation:
Characterizing the act as "a
milestone in the field of national
social welfare policy," the repre-
sentatives declared that "The
time is long overdue for this most
prosperous and most fortunate
country in the world to put an end
to the blight of poverty."
Sanford Solender, executive vice
president of Federation of Jewish
Philanthropies of New York, pre-
sented the statement on behalf of
the Catholic Charities Archdiocese

Thant Intervention
for 2 Algerians
Termed 'Pointless'

JERUSALEM (JTA)—A foreign

ministry spokesman said that no
new note has been received from
United Nations Secretary General
U Thant concerning two high-
ranking Algerian nationals de-
tained by Israel.
The Algerians, Col. Khatib Jal-
oul and All Bel Aziz, were re-
moved from a BOAC airliner in
transit at Lydda Airport two weeks
ago. The ministry spokesman's
statement over the weekend was
made in response to press reports
from New York that the UN chief
had again urged Israel to release
the detainees.
Reports from UN headquarters
that Thant planned to send a spe-
cial emissary to Israel to press
for their release were termed
"pointless and useless" by diplo-
matic sources here. They pointed
out that Thant never considered
such action when Algeria kept 2
hijacked Israeli airliner and its
Israeli male passengers and crew
members captive for 39 days in
1968 or when Syria held two Is-
raeli passengers in jail for more
than three months after a hijacked
TWA airliner was landed at Da-
mascus one year ago.

to enable poor persons to break

and apart from income mainte-
nance.

The statement also outlined the
group's concern about the bill's
"clear weaknesses": the stated
minimum income level is too low;

funds to states for social services
and restricted eligibility for free
services to families in the below-
poverty-income category.
