Federation Leaders Assert
Upper Classes in Need of Aid

NEW YORK (JTA)—Two
New York federation lead-,
ers have expressed the
view that while there
should continue to be atten-
tion to the plight of the Jew-
ish poor, the federation
"also recognizes that the
middle and upper classes"
among Jews are also
"needy."
"These people have needs
relating to family break-
down, alienation from Jew-
ish roots, loneliness, the fi-
nancing of health care, and
other social problems,"
Harry R. Mancher, presi-
ent, and Sanford Solender,
,xecutive— vice president,
said in a joint statements is-
sued in connection with a
60th anniversary institute of
the Federation of Jewish
Philanthropies.
In remarks to the in-
stitute, of which the main
theme was the future of the
Jewish community of New

est." In a special film
shown at the institute, Kris-
tol suggested there must be
a cutback in government
support for social welfare
programs.
Kristol contended that the
"philanthropic tradition has
shaped New York City poli-
tics in such a way as to en-
courage fiscal reckless-
ness" and added that
"when a politics of com-
passion conflicts with the
politics of reason, then the
politics of compassion be-
come the politics of unrea-
son."
Commenting on Kristol's
statement,. Mancher said
"we accept the principle
.that public social welfare
programs need to be more
economical, with better ac-
countability and more ra-
tional."
But, he said, "we reject
the notion that our society
cannot afford to maintain
decent social welfare pro-
grams."
