NYPD Seeking
Orthodox Cops

NEW YORK (JTA) — For
the first itme in the history
of the New York City Police
Department, top police offi-
cials are encouraging
enrollment of Orthodox
Jews in the force according
to Louis Weiser, the
president of the Council of
Jewish Organizations in
o' -
Civil Service. Weiser is also
S.
a former president of the
Shomrim Society, corn-
prised of Jewish pclice.
He said the current exam-
- inations may be the last
pportunity for Jewish
oung people to enter the
,..,e
police force in any substan-
tial numbers.
Apart from the fact that
the police department
wants to broaden minority
representation, Weiser said
11._
there is a possibility that
"selective certification" —
the appointment of a candi-
•.---
date out of his or her exam-
ination rank for preferen-
tial hiring — may be ex-
tended to cover applicants
with fluency in languages

other than Spanish, as at'
present.

GENEVA (JTA) — Police
in Switzerland are inves-
tigating a series of anti-
Semitic incidents over the
last few days. In Zurich, the
door of a synagogue was de-
stroyed by a bomb last
Thursday causing an esti-
mated $7,000 in damage.
The walls of the

synagogue were daubed
with slogans saying, "We
shall kill you," "Heil
Adolf," and "We are fight-
ing the lies about the gas
chambers."
An anonymous phone cal-
ler to the Zurich newspaper
"Blick" said that the Jewish
school in that city would be

for concern but not for
alarm. They expressed hope
that Swiss TV officials will
not be influenced by these
acts and will show
"Holocaust."
There are 6,150 Jews in
Zurich and 3,250 Jews in
Geneva and a small Jewish
community in Lausanne.

NBC-TV film "Holocaust" is

as scheduled in April.

In Lausanne and

Geneva, anti-Semitic slo-
gans have been painted
on public walls. •
