United States.
Findings of the study,
which analyzed data from
382 Jewish schools in 31
metropolitan areas during
the 1975-76 academic year,
were released last week by
Robert H. Arnow, president
of the AAJE.
Arnow reported that the
median maximum salary of
a full-time day school
teacher was $13,433 a year,
while that paid to a full-time
teacher in a supplementary

In addition, Arnow stated
that Jewish schoolteachers'
salaries, which "are too low
to begin with," have

He said that while the
Consumer Price Index rose
50 percent from 1969-70 to
1975-76, maximum salaries
for day school teachers
increased 42.6 percent and
those for supplementary
school teachers only 20-per-
cent. Moreo-Ver, "annual
increments in 1975-76 aver-
aged only $395 in day
schools and $250 in supple-
mentary schools," Arnow
The study was conducted
by the AAJE's Department
of Statistical Research and
Information under the
supervision of Dr. Murray
Rockowitz and Dr. Gerhard
Lang, the department's -
director and research con-
sultant, respectively.




Arnow declared that the
study's findings "prompt
several critically important
recommendations for the
Jewish community to imple-
ment if it is serious about
seeking to attract—and to
keep—able and talented
people in Jewish educa-
tion." He said that "ade-
quate funding must be made
available to increase sala-,
ries markedly and provide a
full range of substantial
fringe benefits in order to
enhance the profession of
the Jewish school teacher
and make it far more
attractive financially."

In addition, Arnow called
on Jewish community feder-
ations and welfare funds to
"consider making specific
allocations in the area of
Jewish education that would
encourage local schools to
raise the status and
improve the standards of
their personnel."

- He also reiterated a long-
standing AAJE plea that
Jewish communal planners
urge smaller schools "to
consolidate their human and
financial resources."

UN Committee Adopts Resolve
Aimed Against Air Hijackings

Four years ago we first elected JOHN MARCOSKY to represent us on Southfield City

(JTA)—The special political
committee of the General
Assembly Monday adopted
by consensus a-draft resolu-
tion aimed against aerial
The resolution sponsored
by 46 countries, urges
improved security at air-
ports, calls for the exchange
of relevant information
between nations and for
ratification of three existing
international conventions
dealing with the safety of
civil aviation. These are the
Tokyo, The__Hague and Mon-
treal conventions which
have been ratified, so far.
by 88, 79 and 75 nations,
The final draft that will be
sent to the General Assem-
bly for consideration was
modified under pressure
from the Arab states by the
addition of language that
observers here saw as an
allusion to Israel's rescue
raid at Entebbe airport in
Uganda on July 3-4, 1976.


We are convinced that JOHN'Scommittment to his responsibilities, his proven availability,
communication with his constituents and voting record make JOHN MARCOSKY a
Councilman of whom we are proud.

JOHN is an active leader in the Jewish community, having served on the Temple Emanu-
El Board of Trustees for six years, Treasurer for two years, Couples Club President, and
is a member of B'nai B'rith Lodge 1374.

Please join us in supporting JOHN MARCOSKY, a hard working Councilmap for re-
election, on Tuesday, November 8th.

In a related development,
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan protested to the U.S.
against its request of Israel

Speaking in the Knesset,
Dayan said he made the
protest after the U.S. tried
to make Israel withdraw
her motion in the UN debate
on anti-hijacking measures.

According to Dayan, the
U.S. was not the only power
which wanted Israel to stay
out of the international
initiative against inter-
national terror. Austria, too,
told Israel she- preferred
that Israel would not sup-
port her motions in the UN,
for fear of losing Arab sup-
port. Israel rejected the for-
eign appeals, Dayan said.
