KKK Has Candidate
for U.S. Presidency

Reusch, Ohio grand dragon
of the National Knights of
the Ku Khix Klan, was sel-
ected to run as a presiden-
tial candidate in 1976. Scott
-Nelson, imperial wizard of
the Texas Fiery Knights,
will be his vice presidential
candidate, according to an
announcement made at the
end of the group's annual
Labor Day convention in At-

Three civilian rabbis have
been slated to hold services
at Air Force Bases in the
U.S. Rabbi Israel Weisfeld
will be at Vandenberg AFB,
Calif.; Rabbi Harry Essrig
is going to Ft. Huachuca,
Ariz.; and Rabbi David
Greenberg will conduct serv-
ices at Castle AFB, Calif.
Full-time and part-time
Jewish chaplains and mili-
tary lay leaders will conduct
Rosh Hashana and Yom Kip-
pur services at more than 550
domestic military installations
and at many overseas points,
on Army transports and Navy
vessels on the high seas, and
for patients in VA hospitals.
Jewish military personnel
and their families stationed
far from the friends and
community they left behind
are assisted to keep the High
Holy Days "Jewishly" mean-
ingful through a variety of
special holiday provisions
sent by JWB. These provi-
sions, which include the tra-
ditional kosher foods, prayer
books and prayer shawls,
yarmulkes, Torah scrolls,
ram's thorns, Jewish calen-
dars and inspirational litera-
ture, are sent to military in-
stallations throughout the
JWB also provides religious
materials for U.S. service-
men on duty at embassies
overseas, for U.S. foreign
service personnel, and for
Peace Corpsmen serving. in
remote areas.
Three cassettes, produced

by JWB's commission on
Jewish chaplaincy, are avail-
able for the fall holiday
period. These include Selihot
prayers and descriptions and
liturgical melodies of the
High Holy Days and Sukkot.
The cassettes can be used as
guides to the services or to
help train military lay lead-
ers'. They are often played
over VA hospital networks so
that bedridden Jewish pa-
tients can take part in the
holiday observances. Ambu-
latory patients usually attend
hospital services.

At some military posts,
Jewish personnel are granted
leave so they can travel home
for the High Holy Days. A
number of servicemen will
be offered home hospitality
by Jewish residents of the
local communities where
they are stationed.
