Hespital Employes Cited

Children's Hospital of Michigan cited two of its staff
members, Iris Kahn and Dr. Susan Adelman, in the August
issue of the hospital's publication, Kaleidoscope.

IRIS KAHN

DR. SUS AN ADELMAN

Iris Kahn of Sherfield Rd.,
Southfield, has been named
employe of the month by Ka-
leidoscope. A member of the
respiratory therapy depart-
ment since Sept. 1972, Miss
Kahn was saluted by Dr. Ed-
gardo Arcinue, director of
the intensive care unit.
Last April, during Clinic
Days at the hospital, Miss
Kahn almost single-handed-
ly set up the respiratory
therapy equipment for the de-
partment's exhibit. Accord-
ing to Kaleidoscope, she made
signs until 1 a.m. and hauled
and set up equipment for the
exhibit after working 16
hours the previous day.
Dr. Arcinue described her
performance in intensive care
and neo-natal intensive care
units as "exemplary." "Her
relations with other person.
nel in ICU—doctors, nurses,
clerks, co-respiratory thera-
pists, is good. Her energy is
a marvel to those she works
with and her disposition is
always pleasant," Dr. Arci-
nue said.

Dr. Susan Adelman has
been appointed chief surgical
resident at Children's Hospi-
tal, it was announced by Dr.
Jack Hertzler, chief of sur-

gery.
Dr. Adelman, whose hus-
band is a law professor at
Wayne State University, was
born in New York and earned
her undergraduate degree in
geology at the University of
Michigan. She was an in-
structor and geology graduate
student at Wayne and earned
her MD degree at the uni-
versity's school of medicine.

Bingo on Tisha b'Av Criticized

Editor, The Jewish News:
Although Tisha b'Av (9th
day of Av) may be observed
more in the breach than in
the practice by many con-
temporary Jews, it seems
shocking that a local Ortho-
dox congregation would con-
duct a bingo game on the
night when the Book of La-
mentations is read in the
synagogue.
I was horrified when it was
brought to my attention that
Cong. Beth Abraham-Hillel
in its weekly Monday night
bingo, conducted by its men's
club, did not consider Jewish
tradition and the tragedy of
the Jewish past sufficiently
important to warrant the
cancellation of one night of
bingo.
What can we expect of the
Jewish public when a syna-
gogue supposedly dedicated
to the continuity of' Jewish
tradition and observance of
Jewish law flagrantly and
publicly violates the char-
acter of the day of mourning
and fasting on the Jewish
calendar.

Fr. Coughlin to Be Put in 'Better
Light' by Catholic Biographer

Unhappy with the picture
painted of him in a new book,
Fr. Charles E. Coughlin has
chosen a writer whose views
are closer to his own right-
leaning beliefs to do his auto-
biography.
Fr. Coughlin, 82, onetime
publisher of Social Justice
magazine, has named Farley
Clinton, a writer for the right-
wing Catholic paper the Wan-
derer, to compile the mate-
rial and write the priest's
recollections.
In an interview with De-
troit News religion writer
Nancy Manser, Fr. Coughlin
said he was displeased with
the book on him written by
Fordham• University faculty
member Sheldon Marcus. "It
put me next door to a homo-
sexual and a thief," Fr.
Coughlin said, adding that
this was an implication and
not, a direct statement.
He also said that Marcus
was wrong to portray him as
a politician. "First of all, I'm
a priest and secondarily I
was engaged in politics," said
the pestor emeritus of the
Shrine of the Little Flower
in Ili.):7a1 Oak.
In the interview, Fr. Cough-
lin r,a'd he is neither anti-
Jewir!-,_ nor pro-Nazi. "We'll
neve -- .clear up these
(char - es), but at the same
time never tried serious-
ly to cl_ear them up," he was
quoted by Miss Manser.
"Americans," he was re-
ported as saying, "don't real-
ize they confuse the terms
anti-Semite and anti-Jew.
Jews account for one-seventh
of the world's Semites." He

said neither term applies to
him.
Fr. Coughlin went on:
"Christ and the Apostles were
Jews, and the first 33 popes
were ,Jews. Among the last
10 popes we've had, three
were predominantly Jewish,"
he said. Fr. Coughlin didn't
explain what he meant by
that.
"I can't be anti-Jewish,"
he told the reporter. "Jews
in my estimation have the
highest IQ of any group of
people in the world. But I do
think they're the most pol-
arized people in the world."
He said he doesn't like be-
ing called pro-Nazi. "I know
enough of philosophy and
Marx that Hitler was a sec-
ond-rate Marxist with a ma-
terialistic concept of living
filled with hate and venom,"
he said.
Fr. Coughlin's biographer
said friends of the priest are
paying the costs of having
the book written and pub-
lished.

Capital in a Capital

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Jerusalem now has a capital
within a capital, with the
opening of the "Youth Capi-
tal" in a park near the
Knesset. The Youth Capital
program will end when
Shelly Lehman, 17, and
Mahmud Abassi, 18, become
mayor and deputy mayor.

JUDGE IRA G. KAUFMAN

ence of the Michigan Probate
and Juvenile Court Judges
Association, of which he is
outgoing president. The
event took place in Boyne
Highlands.
The resolution, the first
awarded to a president of
the 78-year-old association,
described Judge Kaufman's
leadership in community
activities, particularly in the
area of mental health.
The text said Judge Kauf-
man's work proved "that one
man can help in achieving
dignity and self-respect for
all men." He was described
as a "pioneer and giant of
the Michigan probate
courts."
Judge Kaufman, who pre-
sided at the conference, is
succeeded by Dale Stoppels
of Grand Rapids.

cumbed to the dollar at the
expense of the sorrow of the
Jewish people?
Sincerely,

Member of Beth Abraham
(A Beth Abraham spokes-
man said that because the
games are held weekly, it
was too late to cancel on

no food was served.)


Support by Orthodox
Rabbis Defended

Editor, The Jewish News:
In view of some reverbera-
tions resulting from the sup-
port by the Council of Ortho-
dox Rabbis of the candidacy
of M. Manuel Merzon in the
recent Oak Park municipal
primary election, may the re-
ligious position in the matter
be stated.
T h e religious community
believes . . . that it is duty-
bound to be concerned that
the men — and women —
who are elected to administer
the affairs of the city should
both think and act nobly.
Certainly we are concerned
with green belts, with dog
management, with recreation
facilities and taxes, but a
fair city like Oak Park does
not relate solely to dollars
and cents, mortar and bricks;
its political leadership ought
to join in the national hercu-
lean effort to rescue the
country from the wickedness
that has gripped it.

`Undoing Injustice
to Truman's Memory'

Editor, The Jewish News:
I read in the Aug. 8 New
York Times: "A young
Democratic senator from
Arkansas, J. W. Fulbright,
suggested that the nation
was approaching paralysis
and urged President Truman
to resign."
Your recent reminiscence
regarding Senator Vanden-
berg came to my mind. In
fact, I thought of it even
before seeing the above,
having run across a refer-
ence in a book just a few
days ago to Senator Ful-
bright's bright suggestion.
with the addition that he had
proposed that President Tru-
man should first appoint
Senator Vandenberg as Sec-
retary of State, so that he
would succeed to the Presi-
dency.
"A Select Chronalogy and
Background Documents Re-
lating to the Middle East,"
prepared by the Library of
Congress for the foreign re-
lations committee, converts
President Truman to an un-
person in the formation of
U. S. Middle East policy.
The fact is that President
Truman was the first presi-
dent to announce an inde-
pendent (of Britain) policy
on Palestine.
As we approach Rosh
Hashana, we should in spite
of the press of urgent cur-
rent concerns take time out
to undo the injustice to Tru-
man's memory now prevalent
even among his champions.
Yours sincerely,
SIDNEY KORETZ
