Dulzin, Harman
in Contest for
Agency's Post

inter-party political battle is
shaping up over who will suc-
ceed the late Louis Pincus as
chairman of the J e wish
Agency and World Zionist
The new chairman will be
elected in June when the
general assembly of the Jew-
ish Agency convenes here.
Acting chairman Leon Dul-
zin, who has occupied the
dual post since Pincus' death
last year, has announced his
candidacy and promised to
fight any candidate the Labor
Party might put forward.
Dulzin is a leader of the
Liberal Party, one of the
constituents of the Likud op-
The JTA learned from re-
liable sources that the Labor
Party leadership, including
Premier Golda Meir, is back-
ing Hebrew University Presi-
dent Avraham Harman for
the chairmanship. Harman is
a member of the Labor Party
and a former ambassador to
the U.S.
According to sources here,
many ranking members of
the Jewish. Agency regard
Dulzin as best suited for the
job. He has served as acting
chairman and before that as
Jewish Agency treasurer. But
Mrs. Meir and other Labor
Party leaders will never
agree to the key post being
given to a member of the
political opposition, the
sources said.

JDC-Fonds SOcial Center Open in Paris

PARIS — The new Broca
Center for Jewish university
students and faculty is a
$3,000,000 bet that the Fonds
Social Juif Unifie (the cen-
tral French Jewish fund-
raising and social planning
body) has placed on the
community's youth.
"We felt that even if we
could attract only a few
hundred students each year
we would succeed in preser-
ving the Jewish identification
of our elite of tomorrow,"
says Joseph Nahmias, FSJU
vice president and chairman
of the Center Building Com-
mittee. "So in 1971 we de-
cided to go ahead. It was a
bet on the future — an act
of faith."
The Broca Center is a 20-
year-old dream come true.
Back in the 1950s in the wake
of the Holocaust, the JDC
and FSJU leaders saw a
Jewish center as a way to
salvage the remnant of
young Jews who had been
uprooted by the war and
Nazi persecution. In 1954 a
JDC-Claims Conference grant
was earmarked for such a
center. Because of difficul-
ties of construction, it proved
impossible at that point to
build the kind of community
home the JDC and FSJU
had in mind. Then came
wave after wave of refugees
whose needs became the
overriding - priority. But the
dream stayed alive.
The Joint Distribution Com-
mittee also has a stake in
the Center. It is -the latest
and largest of some 60
French centers for which
JDC has given the -FSJU
financial and technical as-
sistance. A long-deferred al-
location of $500,000 in JDC-
reparation funds served as
seed money for its construc-
tion. Reparation funds were
provided by the Conference
on Jewish Material Claims
Against Germany and repre-
sented compensation for anti-
Jewish acts committed by

the Nazis. JDC receives its
funds mainly from the cam-
paigns of the United Jewish
The center, completed last
fall, is located in the heart
of the Latin Quarter. It
houses a 350-seat kosher res-
taurant and cafeteria, now
serving 500 meals a day, a

Embassy Relocates

BONN — In March the Is-
raeli Embassy in Bonn-Bad

cery.. Security has been

for simultaneous translation
and use as a theater, a li-
brary, classrooms, work-
shops and a discotheque. It
provides a permanent home
for the FSJU's prestigious
and popular CUEJ (Centre
Universitaire d'Etudes
Juives) student program
which o f f e-r s high-level
studies in Judaica.

Our costs
are rising
than ever_

When our costs go up,
we need to charge higher
But at Detroit Edison we
must prove our need for
higher prices at public
By the time we g-et
approval, our costs have gone
up even more. So, from time
to time, we have to ask for a
rate increase in order to
_ offset these increasing costs.
You can't take electricity
for granted anymore, but
well continue to do our best
to provide reliable electric
service now and in the future.
