Prompt intercession by the
Anti-Defamation Lea g u e's
Capitol Hill representative,
David Brody, helped nip
what might have developed
into an ugly situation with
anti-Semitic overtones in-
volving U.S. Attorney Gen-
eral Richard Kleindienst.
According to newsmen
covering the Capitol, Klein-
dienst was telling them that
the Watergate trial was no
whitewash because Assistant
U.S. Attorney Earl J. Sil-
bert, the 36-year-old prose-
cutor in the case, and his
two assistants were not
politically intimate with the
White House.
"You ,take this fellow Sil-
bert," Kleindienst told re-
porters. "I don't know his
political affiliation but I
guess he's a Democrat, con-
sidering his age and the fact
he's Jewish."
Rep. Lester D. Wolff (D.
N.Y.) reacted with a strong
letter to Kleindienst observ-
ing that this remark is an
example of the "kind of com-
ment that fans the flames of
bigotry and prejudice." Wolff
circulated his letter to other
Jewish members of Con-
Upon getting the letter . in
which Wolff called - for a pub-
lic apology, Kleindienst con-
tacted Brody with whom he
has cordial relations and
asked for his help in solving
the situation. Brody quickly
arranged .a meeting between
Wolff and Kleindienst for
the next day. After an hour's
session, Wolff reported he
was no longer upset or con-
"The Attorney General was
very gracious," Wolff said.
"He explained the situation
in a way that sounded very.
plausible. The impression he
made to me today was a
good one. He spoke with sin-
cerity. He said that the mis-
interpretation of this remark
was one of the worst things
that had happened to him.
And he didn't say some of
his best friends are Jewish."
Two of the Jewish mem-
bers of Congress receiving
Wolff's letter are New York
Republicans. Senator Jacob
K. Javits, dean of the Jew-

ish members, said: "It's just
one of those things you don't
know how to resolve. It was
very ill-advised. We'll just
have to take up that score
and keep it in our heads."
Freshman Rep. Benjamin
Gilman said: "Religion is no

Use of `J' on Tax
Bills Angers
Montreal Jews

use of the letter J on tax
bills sent to Jewish taxpay-
ers by the Montreal Urban
Council has revived bitter
memories among Jews of
Cote-St. Luc, a 95 per cent
Jewish-populated suburb of
They say it smacks of the
J many of them were forced
to wear while inmates of
Nazi concentration camps.
The J began to appear on
tax bills after a new law
that went into effect in Jan-
uary abolished the old sys-
tem of separate tax lists for
Jews, Catholics and Protes-
tants. The assessment bills
of Catholics and Protestants
are marked C and P in the
"religious code" box.
But the Jews are more
sensitive "because they have
been persecuted in my own
time, not hundreds of years
ago," Mrs. Celine Polak,
spokesman for a group of
irate Jewish taxpayers, said
at a meeting of the Cote-St.
Luc City Council last week.
Mrs. Polak, who was born
in Amsterdam and was
forced to wear the J during
the Nazi occupation, asked
why the MUC needs to know
a taxpayer's religion.
Mrs. Polak's 25-member
delegation met with Mayor
Samuel Moskovitch of Cote-
St. Luc. He said the council
would send a protest resolu-
tion to the MUC with copies
of the 27 other member
municipalities, Premier Rob-
