of Habonim

Habonim Labor Zionist Youth
will meet 8 p.m. today in the

discussion of "Pacifism in Israel
and in the U.S."
A comparison will be made be-
tween the pacifist ideology of
young people in the U.S. today and
that of members of Israel's
Excerpts from the book "The
Seventh Day" will be used as a
basis for discussing an Israeli
view of pacifism. The book is a
partial English translation of
"Slach Lohanim," compiled after
the Six-Day War when kibutzniks
discussed and recorded their feel-
ings on war, "hating the enemy,"
pacifism and related questions.
Originally intended to be distrib-
uted among the kibutz movement,
the book was made a best seller
by the general public.
In addition to the discussion,
there will be information on the
Middle East situation, Israeli sing-
.. Mg and dancing and a kumsitz.
All high school and college age
youth are invited. For information

Detroit Habonim Labor Zionist
Youth is urging a "yes" vote on
Proposition E.
Their stand was taken at the last
Asefa Klalit—General Assembly—
of the ken (local _branch), in ac-
cordance with the stand taken by
the movement nationally.
Proposition E, an "advisory
question" on the Nov. 3 ballot,
asks the voter whether he favors
an immediate cease fire and with-
drawal of U. S. military forces
from Vietnam.
The ken also amended and
passed a resolution which re-
establishes the stand that no one
will be permitted at Habonim
activities under the influence of
illegal drugs and "condemns the
abusive use of unlawful drugs
and liquor" even when not par-
ticipating in the ken's activities.
The Hanhaga (elected body) of
the ken will set up programs-deal-
ing with the legal, physical and
ideological aspects of drug use.
Other decisions made at the as-
sembly include the establishment
of a volunteer corps to work with
mentally retarded children in the
Detroit area and matters dealing
with the organization of the ken.

Mitzva Corps Spends
Summer Among Poor,
Pays for Opportunity

NEWARK (JTA)—Twenty Jew-
ish teen-agers who worked with
Black and Puerto Rican children—
among a variety of assignments
last summer in New Brunswick
poverty areas—not only paid a fee
of $150 each for the opportunity
but also helped to raise the bal-
ance of $8,000 needed to finance
the project.
The fees paid by the young Mitz-
va Corps members totaled $3,000.
The remaining $5,000 was raised
in the form of contributions from
Reform synagogues throughout
New Jersey visited during the
year by three of the teen-agers
making appeals at Friday night
Each of the 20 students under-
took an assignment at various
tasks in the city, in university
agencies and at a low-income
cooperative grocery. They work-
ed in recreation programs and
did door-to-door canvassing for
surveys and to promote the co-
op grocery to poverty area resi-
One project was the rehabilita-
tion of a playground "given to us
as a challenge" by the city's rec-
reation department. The park had
been closed for the past three
summers and would have stayed
closed last summer except for the
work of the corps members. They
said they found the park "covered
with garbage and broken glass. We
cleaned it out. When the neighbor-
hood kids saw it was open and we
were there with crayons and horse-
shoes, they began to come and
play there."
On the first day, there were 20
children and by the end of the
summer, 70 children from the age
of six months to 18 years were
using the park.
The project was one of several
carried out during the summer by
Reform youth. The 20-member
New Brunswick team included
teen-agers from Mitzva Corps
programs which were planned but
failed to materialize in New York,
Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis-
St. Paul and Detroit.
