THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

editors?
In Detroit, happily, there
has been recently a bit of a

folk have been paying a bit
of tribute to Phil Slomovitz,
editor of the Detroit Jewish
News. Selections from his
writings under the caption
"Without Malice" have been
issued by the Wayne Uni-
versity Press. Phil is a mod-
