Douglas Showed Interest in :Jews.

also carved out something
of a new American pattern.
Douglas grew up in a lit-
tle town, Walla Walla,
Washington. He was a
poor boy. In his autobiog-
raphy, which was pub-
lished a year or so 'ago, he
recalls working as a boy
for a Jewish storekeeper of
the town, a man he found
very sympathetic and sen-
sitive to the finer things.
Later he came to New
York to attend Columbia
University. Oddly enough he
became interested in an-
other Jew — a peddler of
fruit who operated in the
vicinity of the campus. The
humble peddler was not de-
void of ideas.
Later on, Douglas was to
be identified with Justice
Brandeis. It was the latter,
on his retirement, who sug-
gested to Franklin Roosevelt
that Douglas be named as
his successor. There is no
doubt that Brandeis exerted
a strong influence on his
own legal outlook and phi-
losophy.
Brandeis had brought a
more. humanistic approach
to the law and Douglas ap-
parently shared the Bran-
deis philosophy of the dan-
gers of big industry — the
development of a state of
things where a few big cor-
porations dominated every-
thing and the mass of people
were clerks.

The saying, some of my
best friends are Jews,
usually is meaningless and
provokes a laugh, but in the
case of Justice Douglas it
has real meaning. Jews have
played an important part in
his career and he has shown
strong interest in Jewish
things.
Douglas has been, of
course, a very controversial
figure. John Quincy Adams
said that if his father, Presi-
dent John Adams had done
nothing else but appoint
John Marshall to the Su-
preme Court, his adminis-
tration would have been jus-
tified.
Marshall on the bench
influenced the whole course
of American history and it
may be said of Douglas that
he will be remembered not
only because he served
longer on the Supreme
Court than any other judge
but because his decisions

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Shmuel Toledano, the pre-
mier's adviser on Arab af-
fairs, may ask that an in-
quiry commission be named
to find out whether the
Communist victory in Naza-
reth was due to the failure
of the government's policy
toward Israeli Arabs or the
fault of the Labor Party.
Tewfik Ziad, the pro-Mos-
cow Rakah Communist-
backed candidate, was
elected mayor of the Arab
city and his slate captured
11 of the 17 city council
seats.
Toledano noted that the
growing Arab national feel-
ing among Israel's 500,000
Arabs will continue as long
as the Arab-Israeli conflict
remains unsettled.

NEW YORK — Rabbi
Shlomo Thaler, vice presi-
dent of the radical Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Activist
Organizations, said that
armed civilians will resume
patrols in the Borough Park
section of Brooklyn follow-
ing a series of muggings,
bombings and extortion of
merchants.
Thaler said 16 cars carry-
ing four men each will pa-
trol the area, helped on the
Sabbath by Italian residents
of the Jewish-Italian-Puerto
Rican section.
Thaler accused the police
and city officials of being
lax, and said that similar
patrols helped quiet the
area in the past.

tracted to Felix Frank-
furter, who ensconced in
the privacy of the Harvard
Law School emerged into
public prominence by his
vigorous taking up the
cudgels for the defense in
the Sacco-Vanzetti case.
Passions ran high in that
case and Douglas was to
experience similarly heated
temperatures when, as a
member of the Supreme
Court, he deferred the exe-
cution of Julius and Ethel
Rosenberg in the atomic
bomb case.
But Douglas liked to
climb mountains. He faced
a mountain of opposition in
his civil rights decisions and
the capital punishment deci-
sions — and the mountains
fought back.
