AJCommittee Charges Supermarket
Chain With Biased Hiring Practices

PHILADELPHIA (JTA)—
The Philadelphia chapter of
the American Jewish Com-
mittee charged the Acme
supermarket chain with dis-
crimination against hiring
Jews in executive positions.
Michael Steinig, chairman

of the executive advisory
program, a joint endeavor of
the AJC chapter and the
Jewish Employment and Vo-
cational Service, said that
Acme, the fourth largest
food chain in the U.S., had
no Jews in the top 30 exec-

"Since Jews account for al-
most 30 per cent of college
graduates in the Philadelphia
area, something is clearly
wrong," he said.
Steinig said that in meet-
ings with Acme officials, the
company either refused to
provide data about its em-
ployes or gave information
that "could only be de-
scribed as misleading or
frivolous." He said his chap-
ter would soon file a com-
plaint against the Acme
chain with the district office
of the Equal Employment Op-
portunity Commission.
According to Steinig, the
AJC and the JEVS have
been attempting for more
than eight years to effect
changes in Acme's hiring
and promotional policies. The
Philadelphia-based chain op-
erates more than 500 super-
markets, warehouses, pack-
aging plants and food proc-
essing centers in eight states.
Steinig stressed that the
AJC was not asking for a
quota system, to which the
organization is strongly op-
posed.
He noted that the com-
plaint to be filed with the
EEOC will be the first by
the AJC against an individ-
ual company in the organiza-
tion's "executive suite" pro-
gram.

Dulzin Relates
Aliya Decline
From U.S.

NEW YORK (JTA)—Leon
Dulzin, acting chairman of
the Jewish Agency and of the
World Zionist Executive, said
that while aliya on a global
basis remained at a strong
level, emigration from the
United States to Israel has
declined during the past eight
months, but predicted that
7,200 Canadian and American
olim would arrive in Israel
by year-end.
Dulzin, addressing a special
meeting of the American
Zionist Federation Executive
Committee, disclosed that in
order to make adjustments in
Israel easier for single peo-
ple, the Jewish Agency has
initiated a program in which
1,000 housing units are being
built to accommodate single
people who come on aliya.
Discussing the quality of
the Soviet immigrants, Dul-
zin said they were highly
trained and educated but that
frequently it is difficult to
find appropriate professional
placement for them.
In such cases the immi-
grant is given further educa-
tion and training.
"The fact remains," Dul-
zin said "that with few ex-
ceptions all Soviet olim are
placed in jobs and provided
with housing and other ne-
cessities of life. Consequent-
ly, those few who choose to
leave Israel will no longer
be assigned refugee status,
which hitherto has entitled
them to aid from other Jew-
ish sources."

ZOA Parley Reslated

HOUSTON (ZINS) — The
national executive committee
of the ZOA, at its meeting
here, approved a recommen-
dation of the administrative
board to advance the date
of the 77th national conven-
tion to June 27-30, 1974. The
convention will be held in
the New York Hilton.

salt!

And next week is the annual Oskar Blumenthal Sale!

And the following week is the annual Karl von Reichen-

back Sale! The point we're trying to make is that at

Walker's all men's clothing is always "sale" priced .. .

every day, every week of the year.

Our customers call this policy "the new way to buy

men's clothing" ... and here's how it works. You agree

to forgo all nonessential services . . . which means you

get no alterations, no delivery, and you can't buy on

credit nor use your credit cards.

This, of course, saves us a lot of operating ex-

pense and so, in return, we sell you the finest

nationally-advertised clothing brands at

small wholesale-like markups. More

than that, we offer you a selection

which is unbelievable, both in regular

and hard-to-fit sizes. As for styles,

they're up to the minute. It's true that

some labels are removed, but that cer-

tainly does not change the quality.

So ... come in! Let us be the first to wish

you a happy Claus Spreckels Day! And let

us help you celebrate in style" with —
