members eight new titles
during the spring and sum-

Two of these books deal
with the development of
American Jewry and are
particularly appropriate for
this historfc Bicentennial
year. "Community and Pol-
ity" by former Detroiter
Daniel J. Elazar, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Albert Elazar, pro-
vides a full-scale portrait of
the American Jewish com-
munity in all its aspects: the
religious structure, fund-
raising mechanisms, the
decision-making process,
the role of women, the activ-
ity in behalf of Israel, and
"World of Our Fathers"
by Irving Howe, which JPS
co-published with Harcourt
Brace Jovanovich, is a popu-
larly written account of the
period of mass immigration
that began in the 1880's.
At a time when relations
between Zionism and the
UN have fallen to their
lowest ebb, JPS offers
Eliahu Elath's diary-me-
moir of the 1945 founding
conference of the United
Nations in San Francisco.
In this gripping work, Dr.
Elath, a distinguished Is-
raeli diplomat and former
president of the Hebrew
University, captures the
high drama of a pivotal
moment in the Zionist en-

Rabbi's Supporting
Zero Pet Growth

The Board of Rabbis_ of
Southern California has
announced its support of
and urged community par-
ticipation in a Zero Pet Pop-
ulation Growth campaign as
"one means of cutting down
on the waste of protein in a
malnourished world as well
as to eliminate much animal
Rabbi Sidney Jacobs,
chairman of the board's so-
cial action committee, noted
that considerable amounts
of protein are eaten by, un-
wanted dogs and cats
marked for early destruc-
tion. He said their births
could have been prevented
by spaying or neutering.
Rabbi Jacobs said the sur-
plus pet population requires
the outlay of up to half a bil-
lion dollars a year for at-
tempts at animal control.
He said it also creates an en-
vironmental problem, par-
ticularly in cities, where
stray or uncared for dogs
and cats are both* a health
and safety hazard.
He reported that almost
seven times as many - pup-
pies and kittens are born ev-
ery hour as human beings,
creating a surplus of around
60,000 dogs and cats which
must be destroyed daily to
keep the pet population
stable, a surplus of pets
which "creates a waste — in
lives, in money and in food
consumption — that should
not be tolerated by humane
and civilized people."

NCCJ Warns Against Abortion
Issue Becoming Inter-Faith Rift

NEW YORK — "It would
be a social tragedy of the
first magnitude if the de-
bate which is currently de-
veloping over a proposed
constitutional amendment
concerning abortion is per-
mitted to deteriorate into an
interreligious conflict," the
national program director
of the National Conference
of -Christians and Jews has
. In a statement on the
abortion arriendment issue,
Donald W. McEvoy, an
NCCJ vice president, said,
"We must not fall into : the
trap of posing the question
as if it were a battle be-
tween Catholics on the one
hand, and Protestants and
Jews on the other, as it ap-
pears to be shaping up in
the public mind."


Prof. Norris, who earlier
won acclaim as the biogra-
pher of the late Frank Mur-
phy, has gained new recog-
nition for a talent as an able
and impressive poet.
His poems reflect on the
men and events that shaped
20th Century America, not
only in the United States,
but throughout the world'.
Included are more than 70
poems. An example from
"You Are This Nation" is
the third stanza from the
poem, "The Holocaust":


Blame the victim,
resist more, you say;
did the world deserve it?
do what all the firepower in
the world
finally had to do;
throw stones at tanks
and dirt at howitzers,
hurl the burning bush,
arise at Warsaw, Vilna,
Bialystok and Cracow;
resistance was chameleon
in Maquis, in partisans
in shirtsleeves and sabotage
in a hundred forms -
the Star of David was worn
defiance was not uniform,
and death was defined as
Were they killed because
they had no home.

McEvoy pointed out ,that
the NCCJ "takes no institu-
tional position on this mat-
ter." He said that one's
"individual conscience" and
spiritual guidance of then.:,
"faith-affiliation" was con-
"We do urge, however,
that the debate be con-
ducted within the; confines
of civilized dialogue," he
stressed. "Above all, we im-
plore that the dialogue be
pursued on the issue itself,
and that a tangential war of
words not be permitted to
poison the wells of interreli-
gious amity and good will."
