Hadassah Issues Call for End
to Soviet Anti-Semitism

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A call
was issued here for the end of
Soviet anti-Semitism and the right
of Soviet Jews to emigrate to Is-
rael if they so desire.
The demand was made at the
Iladassah Mid-Winter Conference
being held here for the first time
in Hadassah history.
Addressing the 150 delegates,
Mrs. Max Schenk, national presi-
dent of Hadassah, declared: "We
insist on the rights of Jews every-

where to live in freedom. In parti-
cular, we think of our brethren
in Soviet Russia suffering under a
cruel dictatorship."
A new community college built
by Hadassah in Israel was offici-
ally opened here Monday in the
presence of Hadassah national
board members by Deputy Minister
of Education Asher Yadlin.
The community college is in-
tended to train technicians and
practical engineers who need an
education beyond high school lev-
el, but do not require a full uni-
versity program.
The college presently houses
four departments: computer tech
nology, scientific photography,
laboratory technology and medical
records librarianship. Two hund-
red and fifty students are already
reportedly attending the school.
Speaking at the opening ses-
sion, Mrs. Schenk told the dele-
gates: "We derive from Israel
much more than we bring to IL
Thorugh our efforts for this land
and its people we are strength-
ened spiritually and morally.
We are enriched.cnIturally and
tilled in our battle against all
those dissenting and opposing
(rives that rear their heads In
this age of dissent and opposi-
tion."

icy of the President and Con-
gress of maintenance of the
power balance and assuring Is-
rael's security "will advance
the cause of peace."

Hadassah is seeking to expand
its community services which in-
clude tutorial, lunch and old-age
programs, into a close working
relationship with local job corps
centers, Mrs. D. Leonard Cohen,
American affairs chairman, re-
ported. "This new role for Hadas-
sah is in addition to the ongoing
services Hadassah volunteers have

provided in its two-year-old 'Ac-
tion Program' " Mrs. Cohen de-
clared.
American affairs chairmen of
Hadassah chapters will be asked
to contact job corps directors and
offer to supply specific services
to them such as recreation, tutor-
ing and trips.
The Hadassah leaders adopted
two resolutions. One called upon
Congress to restore the cuts made
in the national medical research
budget, and the other asked for
the reform of the welfare system.

repudiated the Jewish Defense

League in a resolution. The 500
delegates called JDL activities
"irresponsible" and harmful to the
cause of Soviet Jewry because
they diverted public attention, con-
fused opinion and embarrassed the
U.S. government.
The resolution charged that such
JDL activities "play directly into
the hands of the Soviet government
which exploits the outrageous acts
of a small number of Jews by
suggesting that harassing indivi-
duals and vandalizing property are
the tactics employed by organized
Zionism and Jewish groups."
The resolution dedicated Hadas-
sah "to persevere in efforts to
create a climate of national and
international opinion that will in-
fluence" Soviet authorities to al_
low Russian Jews "to live as Jews
at home or emigrate and live as
Jews in Israel." It urged the Sov-
iet government to allow Jews who.
wish to leave for Israel to do so,
to grant to its Jewish nationals
"the right to teach, practice, pre-
serve and perpetuate their reli-
gion and culture," and "to halt the
vicious anti-Jewish, anti-Zionist
campaign being waged in the Sov-
iet press, on TV and radio."
A statement on the Middle

East expressed appreciation to
President Nixon for his stand
that the United States would
not permit Israel "to be in a po-
sition where Its neighbors can
overwhelm it with superior man-
power or forces from the Soviet

Memphis Clergy Protest
Saturday Election Bill

MEMPHIS (JTA)—A group of
Protestant and Catholic clergy
have voiced opposition to a bill
in the Tennessee Legislature which
would change election day in the
state Irons Thursday to Saturday.
They declared the change would
be "offensive to our Jewish breth-
ren and our Christian brothers,
the Seventh-Day Adventists," who
also observe Saturday as their
Sabbath.

Since- times are tough,
we know a deal isn't a deal unless it's a
steal. That's why Murray's is o ering an unprecedented 10% DISCOUNT ON
ALL WALLPAPER and the free use of our hanging tools. If you think that's
great, Murray's is selling Sherwin Williams Super KemTone at only $5.9.7 a
gallon. You'll find Murray's to be the most complide and competitive paint
and wallpaper department in the city. So why go to the giant store across
the street? Drive a little farther, and Murray, his wife and his family will show
you courtesy and patience, as well as sell you the same brand names for
less. With a name like Ace behind a family like Murray's . . . you can't go wrong.
