NEW YORK (JTA) —
Robert J. Kane, president of
the United States Olympic
Committee, said that the
current issue of human
rights in the Soviet Union is
political in nature, not one
of sports. "As such it is far

apart from sports and the
Olympic Games (scheduled
to take place in Moscow in
1980) and should be settled
at the national level," he
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency.
Kane, however, pledged
that the committee "will
continue to support the
principle of human rights as
it applies to the Olympic
Games, under the Interna-
tional Olympic Committee
charter." He warned that "If
we impinge on the authority
of foreign governments, the
United States Olympic
Committee would be guilty,
itself, of infusing politics
into the world Olympic
movement."
He said that the U.S.
committee "is diametrically
opposed to any organization
injecting politics into the
Olympic movement" and
stated that the Israel Olym-
pic Committee is also "dis-

tressed at the infusion of
politics into sports. They
will resist every effort to
mix politics and sports."
Kane said the Israel com-
mittee informed him that
they are continuing to make
preparations and will par-
ticipate in the games in
Moscow.
Kane said: "We are con-
scious of the many pres-
sures in today's world of try-
ing to infuse politics into
sports. However, if any
country violates the ac-
cepted rules contained in
the International Olympic
Committee charter we will
exercise the right (as we
have done previously) to
bring the question directly
to the International Olym-
pic Committee and insist
that they enforce the Inter-
national Olympic Commit-
tee Rules, if the games are
to be recognized as Olympic
Games."

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
As the Cabinet met for its
weekly session Sunday,
thousands of religious Jews,
in traditional black attire,
covered the hills opposite
the premier's office in a de-
monstration against autop-
sies. The demonstration
was organized by a commit-
tee "For Safeguarding
Human Dignity."
The demonstrators sang
psalms and held posters cal-
ling doctors "murderers in
white gowns" and "bank
robbers get prison terms,
body robbers get research
grants."
A spokesman for the de-
monstrators claimed the
group had evidence from
many parts of the country of

NEW YORK — U.S.
Jewish military personnel
in such far-flung places as
Germany, Greece, Turkey,
Italy and the Far East will
observe the High Holy Days
and attend special services
this year, thanks to the ef-
forts of Jewish chaplains
and JWB's Commission on
Jewish Chaplaincy.
"There are only 55 full-
time Jewish military and
Veterans Administration
chaplains," says Rabbi
Judah Nadich, Commission
chairman. "The Commis-
sion will help mobilize civi-
lian and reserve rabbis to
conduct Rosh Hashana and
Yom Kippur services at
every base where there are
Jews."
Both JWB's Commission
on Jewish Chaplaincy and
JWB's Women's Organiza-
tions' Services have sent
shipments of prayer books
and prayer shawls, yar-
mulkes, Torah scrolls,
shofars, Jewish calendars
and inspirational literature
for use not only during Rosh
Hashana and Yom Kippur,
but during Sukkot, Shemini
Atzeret and Simhat Torah
as well. Special shipments
are also earmarked for
Peace Corps volunteers and
U.S. embassy personnel.
Services will run the
gamut from large as-
semblies in base chapels
to small gatherings on
isolated sites or ships at
sea.
