Editors Concerned by U.S. View of Israel

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (JTA)
— A resolution expressing
"deep concern over the re-
peated attempts of the Ford
Administration to blame
Israel for the breakdown of
the shuttle diplomacy be-
tween the Arab nations and
Israel" was adopted here
last week at the closing ses-
sion of the three-day 33rd
annual convention of the
American Jewish Press As-
sociation.
The resolution also put
the association on record as
adopting the position stated
in a letter to President Ford
by 76 Senators urging full
and continued backing of
the State of Israel.
Robert A. Cohen, editor of
the St. Louis Jewish Light,
was re-elected president by

the association of editors
and publishers.of 54 Jewish
newspapers.

In anotherresolution,
the delegates expressed
"dismay and outrage at
the long-established and
continued position of the
International Red Cross in
its non-recognition of the
Mogen David Adorn and
urges the International
Red Cross to review and
reverse that position."

AARON LOPEZ 1731-1782

Merchant • Community Leader • Revolutionary Leader

T

oday, if you go to Newport, Rhode
Island, you can visit the place called
"Lopez Dock," named after Aaron
Lopez, a power in Newport in the years
just preceding the Revolution and owner of
many trading ships.
Known for religious liberalism, Newport had
become the home of a substantial number of
capable, well-educated Jews, among the most
affluent in the Colonies.
In 1752, from Portugal, came Aaron Lopez,
described later by Ezra Styles, President of
Yale University, as "a merchant of first emi-
nence; for honor and extent of commerce prob-
ably surpassed by no merchant in America." In
addition, Lopez was known as an active force
in cementing friendly relations between faiths.
He earned the respect of Christians, as well as
Jews, and no ship ever left his dock on either's
Sabbath. Lopez himself laid the first corner-
stone of Newport's famous Touro Synagogue
in 1759.
In strong sympathy with Revolutionary patriots,

Lopez was forced to flee Newport to Massa-
chusetts when the British attacked.
During the War, the city suffered such heavy
losses that it never recovered. Neither did
Lopez who lost virtually all he had acquired
during his years of successful trading. When
attempting to return to Newport after inde-
pendence was won, he was tragically drowned
in a freak accident.
Ezra Styles eulogized him . . . "He did business
with the greatest ease and clearness; always
carried about him a sweetness of behavior, a
calm urbanity, an agreeable and unaffected
politeness of manners."
A fitting tribute to Aaron Lopez—one of many
Jewish-American patriots worthy of remem-
brance.

WASHINGTON, D.C. —
Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt,,
Jr., former chief of U.S.
Naval Operations, charged
that Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger is holding
back facts from the Ameri-
can people about U.S. mili-
tary weakness compared
with that of the Soviet
Union.
Addressing a meeting of
the national executive com-
mittee of the Anti-Defama-
tion League of Bnai Brith
Sunday in Washington,
D.C., the admiral also called
for the immediate release of
a secret intelligence survey
which found that the U.S. is
"beyond the peril point" in
losing control of the seas to
the USSR.
According to Admiral
Zumwalt, who is also a for-
mer member of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, the survey
— made nearly two years
ago by the President's For-
eign Intelligence Advisory
Board — "must be declassi-
fied so that the public can
make an informed judg-
ment about the Navy's con-
tinued weakness."

The admiral asserted
that the Arab oil embargo
reinforced a Soviet view
that the U.S. is seriously
vulnerable to the sever-
ance of the sea lanes to its
allies and sources of en-
ergy and raw material

Bible. This ongoing program
has already seen publication
of "The Torah" (1962), "Five
Megilloth and Jonah"
(1969), "Psalms" (1972),
"The Book of Isaiah" (1973).
and "The Book of Jeremiah"
(1974). The projected Jewish
Publication Society Bible
Commentary is an out-
growth of this effort.

The Soviet's "massive
maritime buildup," he em-
phasized, came "at a time
when the U.S. Navy is fall-

pation by the American
Jewish community and the
Jewish press in the Ameri-
can Bicentennial observance
to promote full recognition
"of the contributions of
Haym Solomon and other
Jewish patriots and of
American Jews to the birth
of our nation" was urged in
another resolution.
The editors and publish-
ers praised Sen. Henry M.
Jackson (D-Wash) and Rep.
Charles Vanik (D-Ohio) for
their efforts on behalf of So-
viet Jewry and urged other
congressmen to follow their
example.
Another resolution de-
nounced the Syrian govern-
ment for its persecution of
Syrian Jewry and for "its
policy of keeping all visiting
newsmen from visiting the
Jev'ish prisoners of the gov-
ernment."
