Kissinger on Campaign Trail
for We Republicans'; Sees Need
for Vigilance After Camp David

Former Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger is on the
campaign trail assisting in
the election of Republicans
to the U.S. Congress. In De-
troit last week he urged the
re-election of Congressman
William Broomfield and
Senator Robert Griffin, cal-
ling them vital to a strong
foreign policy for the U.S.
He said that, as Secretary
of State he could call on
these two Republican lead-
ers, Rep. Broomfield as the
ranking Republican
member of the House of
Representatives Interna-

the field of education. The future of our young
people is one of our vital concerns, and our
communal organizations are making great ef-
forts to reduce the well-known problems you
cite. Some examples: $827,500. has this year
been allocated for support of our afternoon-
school system. Years ago our day-schools
received only $39,000; today this amount has
been increased to $182,880, a full 1.7% of our
total budget, and in the years ahead further
increases are very possible. We have estab-
lished a large number and variety of the most
modern facilities for our youth at the Jewish
Community Center. We have a magnificent
summer camp system for children of all ages.
In view of all our efforts you may ask why the
problems persist. The answer is that the trou-
bles within the Jewish community are only a
reflection of the same general problems
which exist on a national scale. The afflictions
of illegitimacy, drug involvement, divorce, etc.
are rife within the non-Jewish community as
well, and we simply do not have the ultimate
answer to these problems.

Parents?

Some excerpts from parents' replies:

"... I gave my son the best Jewish education
possible; sent him to Hebrew-school at great
expense. Today? Nothing! He just doesn't
want to know anything about Judaism. . ."
". . my wife and I did not have the bene-
fits of a college education, but we spared no
expense to send our girls to University of
Michigan. Yes, they intermarried — but I just
don't know what more we could have
done. . ."
'... You talk about the ancient Jewish ideal
of education. Well, I don't think I can be
faulted on that; one of my kids attended
Roeper and another went to Detroit Country
Day. You simply cannot find finer schools
than these."
". . . my husband insisted on a grand affair for
the boy's Bar Mitzvah. He sang his Maftir
beautifully and everyone in the synagogue
congratulated us. I've given up trying to figure
out where we went wrong with him. It really
does not seem fair sometimes; I have a good
Jewish heart and so does my husband,
but. . ."
". . Summer camp? Oh sure! We sent both
kids to a Jewish-oriented camp for the whole
season; it was even kosher-style cooking. My
older boy now has kids of his own, but when I
recently mentioned a Jewish camp for them
... my son just laughed and told me I was 'out
of it' . ."

PARENTS UNITED FOR
A JEWISH RENAISSANCE

"Accept The Truth From Who Ever Tells It"

tional Affairs Committee
and Griffin as a former Se-
nate minority whip, for
support and "advice."
Kissinger spoke for
Broomfield at .the Raleigh
House at noon last Thurs-
day, addressing more than
800 at a $50-a-plate lunch-
eon. In the evening he spoke
in Griffin's behalf at the
Standard Club to 200 who
contributed a minimum of
$500 each.

In both instances Kis-
singer spoke of "We Re-
publicans," and thereby
revived his rumored as-
piration to be a candidate
for the U.S. Senate in New
York in 1980.

Of the Camp David pro-
ceedings, Kissinger ex-
pressed optimism of an
early positive approach. He
expressed the view that
some problems will be
solved, but admonished that
others will arise in the exp-
losive Middle East and ad-
' vised caution, at the same
time asserting the belief in
a needed "vigilance" to face
up to the issues.
He punned, as usual, He
began his speech at the
Broomfield rally by express-
ing satisfaction that his
audience had sat down after
giving him a standing ova-
tion because "to keep look-
ing up becomes difficult."
He also told a favorite joke.
He commented that
President Carter "makes
his own decisions." He had a
freer hand with President
Ford who permitted him
always to use the White
House swimming pool, until
the President became con-
cerned that he, Kissinger,
might get a notion to walk
on the water.
While Kissinger viewed
American strength as
.superseding that of the
USSR, he warned of the
Spread of Russian interfer-
ence in the affairs of many
lands. He especially ex-
pressed concern over the
participation of 500,000
Cubans in activities that
menace the security of gov-
ernments in African coun-
tries.
Rep. Broomfield also
commented hopefully on the
Camp David summit and
expressed satisfaction with
the presence in the gather-
ing arranged for him of a
number of Detroit rabbis.

Prior to the Broomfield
luncheon, Irwin Cohn, in-
troduced to Kissinger,
presented himself by say-
ing, "I am a
Lubavitcher," to which
Kissinger replied, "I ad-
dressed one of their meet-
ings in New York last
week."

Max M. Fisher presided
at the Griffin dinner meet-
ing at the Standard Club.
He said more than $100,000
was raised for the Griffin
campaign that night.
Griffin has often been
charged with being reluc-
tant to go all out in support
for Israel but has always
re-asserted a positive atti-
tude and has a good voting

record on the subject, except
that he voted for the jet sale
to Saudi Arabia in May.
