$12,063,211 Is Subscribed by 17,242 to Campaign;
8,000 More to Be Reached in the Three Remaining Weeks

Campaign workers for the
1973 Allied Jewish Cam-
paign-Israel Emergency
Fund announced pledges to-
talling $12,063,211 at the in-
itial 1973 report meeting.
One hundred workers from
the nine campaign divisions
gathered Sunday morning at
the Jewish Community Cen-
ter to tabulate the progress
of the AJC-IEF.
- pre-Passover meeting,
sa
Samuel Frankel, AJC-
1E1E4' general chairman, was
to make "certain that our
campaign doesn't take a holi-
day." Frankel noted that al-
though more than 17,000
gifts have been obtained,
there are still "nearly 8,001)
pledges to be secured. I urge
you to be heartened by our
progress and inspired by the
message of our speaker this
morning.
"Go cover your prospects
as soon as possible. We have
only three more weeks until
campaign closing."
Arthur Howard, associate
chairman, introduced Robert
M. Rubin, junior division
president, John N e m o n,
chairman of the metropoli-
tan division, and Mrs. Merle
H a r r i s, women's division
campaign chairman, who
made reports for their divi-
sions.
Also reporting were Nor-
man Wachler, mercantile
chairman; Sherwood Col-
burn, services-arts and crafts

chairman; Joseph H. Pearl-
man, industrial and auto-
motive chairman; Myron
Milgrom, real estate and
building trades co-chairman;
Bernard Weisberg, food di-
vision co-chairman, a n d
Bruce E. Thal, professional
division co-chairman. They
were introduced by Lewis S.
Grossman, the chairman of
trades and professional divi-
sions.
Speaking at the report
meeting was Michael Rado-
mislsky, a young Israel cit-
izen who is a recent emi-
grant from Kiev.
Radomislsky, as one of the
32.000 Jews liberated from
Russia and allowed to move
to Israel in 1972, spoke of
the hazardous political cli-
mate for Jews in Russia.
He also said there was a
lack of Jewish identity and
community among the esti-
mated 2,500,000 Jews in
Russia. The lack of Jewish
education available in the
Soviet countries and the

political fear which prevents
Jews from acknowledging
their identity are the two
prime factors causing the
unavoidable assimilation of
Jews into the Russian mode
of life, according to Rado-
mislsky.
"I know I am Jewish from
my document papers which
give me a Jewish identity,
from the intellectual knowl-
edge that my parents and
my grandparents were Jew-
ish, and from my practical
awareness that 'normal' peo-
ple don't like Jews," said
Radomislsky. "T h e Rus-
sians, and the facts of life
in Russia, force us to forget
we are Jews."

to ask why you were dis-
missed from your former
job. There's no way way
around it."
The young Jewish printer
said that people out of work,
waiting for permission to
leave Russia which may
never come, live on the pro-
never come, live on the con-
tents of the JDC (Joint
Distribution Committee) par-
cels. JDC is one of the ma-
jor beneficiaries of the AJC-
IEF.
"Once we are given per-
mission to leave, we must
pay the exit tax. And now
the education ransom. Mine,
(only exit tax was in effect
then), was $1,100, the equil
Radomislsky said that valent of an entire year's
there are almost 100,000
Jews who have applied for
permission to immigrate to
Israel. When they apply, he
said, "We are fired from
our job and unable to obtain
new employment. When you
apply for a new job, the
prospective employer calls

Few Jewish Agents
in Ranks of FBI

NEW YORK (ZINS)—Time
magazine, in a recent article
on the FBI, observes that
only a handful of Jews are
found in its ranks. Veteran
supporters of the late J. Ed-
gar Hoover say that he "dis-
trusted" Jews, not because
of their religion but because
of their supposed "liberal-
ism".
The overwhelming majori-
ty of the 8,500 agents em-
ployed by the FBI are said to
be Protestant college gradu-
ates from universities, mostly
in the South, Midwest and
West. Only 12 per cent of
FBI agents are black, Span-
ish-surnamed, or Oriental;
and only 2 are women.
