30 Christians Picket Dancers

FLINT (JTA) — Some 30 Chris-
tians stood outside a theater in
near freezing temperature handing
out literature on behalf of Soviet
Jews.
Inside the theater, the Siberian
Dancers and Singers of Omsk
were appearing in concert. It was
Friday evening — the Sabbath —
when Jews could not picket.
The group consisted of Catholic
priests, Protestant ministers, high
school and college students who
chose to take a "silent stand in
sympathy with our Jewish broth-
ers."
The clergymen were members
of the Interfaith Action Council of

Shoss-liTall Betrothal
Announced in Missouri

Greater Flint which represents
Catholic and Protestant denomina-
tions, both black and white.
Hy Bergman, director of the
Flint Jewish Community Council,
reported earlier that Jewish teen-
agers contacted their friends who
understood the importance of the
Sabbath and the need for protest.
Most of the estimated 1,600 per-
sons who attended the concert ac-
cepted the literature. There were
no incidents.
(A demonstration at Detroit's
'Masonic Temple Saturday night
drew some 20 Lithuanian students
and three Jewish adults, according
to one participant. He said that a
threatened demonstration by the
Jewish Defense League didn't ma-
terialize, although prospective mar-
chers had been cautioned in ad-
vance that JDL protestors might
disrupt any peaceful demonstra-
tion. Another handful of protestors
reportedly showed up at the Sun-
day matinee.)

ZOA Delegation Opposes
Peace-Keeping Military
Force for Middle East

NEW YORK—A high-level dele-
gation of Zionist Organization of
America leaders, headed by the
ZOA President Herman L. Weis-
man, met with Majority Leader of
the House of Representatives, Rep.
Hale Boggs, and told him that the
stationing of a Four-Power peace-
keeping force in the Middle East,
including American and Soviet
cannot be a substitute for defen-
sible and secure boundaries for
Israel.
After the ZOA delegation, repre-
senting its membership of 100,000,
told Boggs of the anxiety of the
ZOA members regarding the pres-
sure on Israel to retreat to its
May 1967 boundaries, Boggs
showed his concern for the views
expressed and promised to give
them full consideration.
The delegation apprised the con-
gressional leader of the plight of
Soviet Jews who are not permitted
to go to Israel—which is the desire
of hundreds of thousands of Soviet
Jews.
The ZOA delegation said that
the United States should insist that
the USSR withdraw its forces from
Egypt, for "there can be no stabil-
ity and peace in the Middle East
as long as Soviet forces are sta-
tioned there."

those humanitarian programs that
are the traditional responsibility
of American Jewry," Moss said.
