Inflation Threat to Services Parley Learns

Ford's Newspaper Week Message:

TF112, \\*HATE 110t

WASHINGTON

National Newspaper Week, 1976

In this Bicentennial year the traditional
tribute to our nation's newspapers takes
on even greater significance. It calls
public attention to the continuing vitality
of the freedom of the press that is such a
cherished part of the legacy we celebrate.
It also evokes the solemn responsibility
of America's newspapers to the trust they
hold and acknowledges their efforts to
perpetuate the integrity and honor of our
birthright as members of a free society.

Our freedom has been nurtured by an unfet-
tered press and by the vigilance and skill
of publishers, editors and journalists
throughout the country.

I welcome the opportunity provided by this
observance to salute the nation's newspapers
and the hard-working men and women who make
them such an indispensable force in our way
of life.

Retention of Trifa Irks Jewish Group

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The American Jewish
Committee said that it "is
gravely disappointed at
the failure of the Na-
tional Council. of
Churches to remove or
suspend from its govern-
ing board a fascist war
criminal, Bishop Valerian
D. Trifa, of Grass Lake,
Mich.," who participated
in the murder of
thousands of Jews and
others while a comman-
dant of the Romanian
fascist Iron Guard in
1941.

The
AJCommittee
statement, issued by
Rabbi Marc H. Tanen-
baum, national director,
and Rabbi James Rudin,
assistant director of the
AJCommittee's Inter-
religious Affairs De-
partment, declared that
"The continued presence
on the National Council's
governing body of this
former commandant of
the anti-Semitic Roma-
nian Iron Guard . . . will
seriously compromise the
moral credibility of the
National Council and will
undoubtedly call into
question any- of its pro-
nouncements or actions
regarding issues of public
morality.
A meeting of the
policy-making board of the
National Council of
Churches was interrupted
for two hours by 30 young
Jews who demanded Tri-
fa's ouster from its gov-
erning board.
The youngsters, who
took over the rostrum
during a luncheon break,
described themselves as
members of Concerned
Jewish Youth. The CJY is
a project of the Betar
Zionist Youth Movement.

About 10 members of the
Jewish Defense League
also participated in the
protest demonstration.
When the board mem-
bers, representing 30
major Protestant de-
nominations, returned to
their seats, the protestors
handed them leaflets cal-
ling Trifa a "mass mur-
derer" and a "Nazi crimi-
nal. - They described the
Iron Guard as the
"Romanian equivalent of
the Nazi Party."
The youths left the
meeting room after the
policy board agreed to
refer the ouster request
to its credentials commit-
tee.

The
AJCommittee
statement read: "To avoid
taking action on the dis-
missal of Trifa, a mur-
derer, on the technical
basis that such 'decision
rests with the Rumanian
Orthodox Chuech is to
evade moral responsibility
through legalisms."
Citing the govern-
ment's charges against
Trifa, who faces revoca-
tion of his citizenship, the
AJCommittee said "It
would seem that the very
least moral obligation re-
sted on the leadership of
the National Council to
suspend Trifa pending
completion of the gov-
ernment's proceedings
against him."
