Community Readied for '73 Allied Jewish Campaign
Formal Opening Set for Wednesday at Dinner at Adas Shalom
"As we approach the formal opening of the 1973 Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund, we have confidence that we can continue that fine tradition of suc-
cess which has enabled us to send $100,000,000 for use overseas and in Israel in the
past quarter century, while maintaining a strong Jewish community at home. We are
keeping the Promise, and we will continue to do so, as we strive for the fulfillment of
the major aspirations of our ancient faith, peace, prosperity, and tranquility for all
mankind."—Samuel Frankel and Paul M. Handleman, co-chairmen, Detroit Allied

"It is said that Jews remain Jews only when they are oppressed by others. but
when they have freedom and opportunity, they give up their Jewishness. Is that true?
In Miami, and in Detroit, and New York, and in cities all over this great country, you
all have remained Jews—have become even more closely identified with your people
because somewhere in the Middle East there is a little tiny, struggling country—and
that means a lot to you—because the people of Israel and you are one." —Israel
Prime Minister Golda Meir, in her address to United Jewish Appeal leaders, in New
York, March 5.

cation and Welfare they were "shocked and dismayed"
by its response to their charges of 33 separate instances

WASHINGTON (JTA)—Sen. Henry M. Jackson (D. Wash.) introduced his amendment
to the East-West Trade Act on the Senate floor, March 15, and excoriated the Soviet Union "for
resorting to the cruel incitement of anti-Semitic sentiments in an effort to scare off support
for our amendment." The senator said that in submitting the measure "We
are upholding our tradition of commitment to individual liberty."
The Jackson measure has the support of 76 senators, a clear majority.
No action is expected to be taken on it, however, until the Nixon adminis-
tration submits the East-West Trade Act, signed last October, to Congress
for enactment or legislation in any form relating to U.S. trade with Eastern
European Communist nations. An identical measure introduced in the
House last month by Reps. Wilbur Mills (D. Ark.) and Charles Vanik (D.
Ohio) has the support of 270 of the 435 House members.
Jackson said the "heart of his legislation was in the provision that
the granting of most-favored-nation status and credits "are contingent" on
semiannual reports by the President to Congress that the country in question is complying with
free emigration requirements. "The Soviet Union can comply with the free emigration pro-

and produced for the Jewish Welfare Federation, depicts the interaction of several AJC-IEF
