Lewis Grossman Council President

Lewis S. Grossman is the
new president of the Jewish
Community Council follow-
ing a hotly contested election
Wednesday evening at the
Council's delegate assembly
at Cong. Shaarey Zedek.
Although a Council. spokes-
man would not announce the
actual vote tally, the margin
was wider than had been an-
ticipated: 62 per cent for
Grossman, 38 per cent for
Bernard Panush. Some 400
delegates cast ballots.
It was the first time in
Council's history that the
presidency has been chal-
lenged by a petition nomi-
nee. Grossman was the

choice of the Council's nom-
inating committee; Panush
was proposed by petition of
five delegates to the Council.
Interest in the election
drew an estimated 500 per-
sons to the assembly al-
though only official delegates
were eligible to vote.
Both Grossman and Pan-
ush are former Council vice

VIENNA (JTA) — The
Austrian Press Council has
sharply condemned the ser-
ies, "Jews in Austria," by
the Viennese mass daily,
"Kronenzeitung."
"The council asserted that
the series would stir up more
anti-Semitic feelings in Aus-
tria and "is apt to activate
p o ten ti al anti-Semitism."
The series could also create
the impression that anti-Sem-
itism is characteristic for
Austria's population, it said.
The Press Council also con-
demned the publication of
"inciting" letters to the
editor.
The council acted on a pro-
test by the Jewish commun-
ity in Vienna. A Jewish
spokesman had said that the
Jewish population in Austria
was defenseless against the
newspaper's biased report-
ing.
The series, which started
on Palm Sunday, was writ-
ten by Victor Reimann, a
former Nazi and co-founder
of a right-wing party. Rei-
mann noted, among other
things, "One of the main
causes for anti-Semitism is
to be found in the Jews them-
selves," adding, "It is be-
cause of his (the Jew's) will
to be different and to be sep-
arated f r o m non-Jewish
people."
The "Kronenzeitung." an-
ticipating the adverse judge-
ment, denouncing the Press
Council as an instrument of
the "united enimies of this
newspaper."
The minister of justice,
Christian Broda, said the
series contained countless
mistakes. Editors of Aus-
tria's state-run radio and TV
called the series "irrespon-
sible." A Socialist women's
organization urged that the
publication of the series be
stopped.
However, Broda said there
are no legal grounds to stop
the series.

Will Hussein Open
Third Battle Front?

TUNIS (ZINS)—Press re-
ports here said that King
Hussein of Jordan has as-
sured both Egyptian Presi-
dent Sadat and Syrian Presi-
dent Assad, on his visits to
their respective countries,
that he would open a third
front against Israel should
the war he resumed.
According to reliable sour-
ces, Hussein is said to have
formally renewed a military
pact with Egypt and Syria.
Israeli sources tend to con-
firm these reports, noting that
Hussein was determined to
end his isolation in the Arab
world by declaring his allegi-
ance to a common military
goal.
