will emerge from the meet-

with each other, but also to
use available human re-
sources of the vast U.S. Jew-

The raid was described as
part of a police crackdown
on such gambling in Jewish
and Christian institutions fol-
lowing complaints from par-
ticipants in t h e games.
Police sources indicated that
it appeared such gambling
was being conducted occa-

that there was no connection
between Jewish spdnsors of
the game nights and crime
figures.
The joint letter said spon-

and urged the organizations
to pass the warning on to all
other Jewish organizations.

NEW YORK .(JTA)—Under

AJCongress Officials to Meet
South American Jewish Leaders

/

:::

Board of Rabbis, have issued
a joint statement warning
Jewish religious and lay or:
ganizations to eliminate Las
Vegas Nite fund-raising oper-
ations which, the statement
said, violated both state law
and Jewish ethical traditions.
The term "Las Vegas Nite"
stems from the city of Las
Vegas, where the principal
activity is a variety of forms
of legal gambling including
roulette wheels, dice games
and slat machines.
The warning was prompted
by two recent incidents in-
volving such fund-raising
events at Cong. Bnai Israel
of Sheepshead Bay and the
Hebrew Alliance Synagogue
of Coney Island. •
A reputed Mafia figure,
Steven Chill°, 31, was shot
to death during a Las Vegas
Nite event at Bnai Israel and

Day Schools Get Aid
for Language Skills

NEW YORK (JTA)—Jew-
ish day schools throughout
the V.S. are now eligible to
receive federally-funded serv-
ices of English-Yiddish bilin-
gual teachers to enable pupils
of such schools to acquire or
improve English-language
skills, Rep. Hugh Carey, (D.,
N.Y.) has reported.
Under the initial interpre-
tation of federal regulations
issued last October, students
in nonpublic schools, whose
native language was other
than English, were not eli-
gible to participate in the
bilingual educational pro-
grams.

There is no closed season
for those who are hunting
trouble.
