Hauser Quits Connally
Over Israel-Oil Policy

NEW YORK (JTA) — Vernon E. Jordan Jr., president of the

NEW YORK (JTA) — The first offi-
cial fallout of former Texas Governor
John Connally's Middle East plan
which links United States oil supplies
to the Arab-Israel conflict is the depar-
ture of a leading Jewish Republican
from his campaign for the 1980 GOP
Presidential nomination.
Rita Hauser, a New York lawyer
and the United States representative
on the Human Rights Commission
during the Nixon Administration, told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
she has resigned from the 10-member
steering committee for the Connally
campaign because of Connally's
Mideast proposals which he made last Thursday in a speech at
the Washington Press Club.
In a telephone interview with the JTA, she said Connal-
ly's speech came as "a total surprise to me." In his speech,
Connally called for Israel's withdrawal to the pre-1967
borders except for "minor" changes, a decision by the
Palestinians whether they wanted an "independent entity"
or to be part of Jordan, U.S. military presence in the
Mideast, and a flow of cheaper oil from the "moderate"
Arab oil-producing states in return for Israel's withdrawal.
Hauser said that while a solution for the West Bank is open
for argument, she considers the linking of the Mideast conflict to
oil prices as "false, dangerous and pernicious." She said even if
Israel completely pulled out of the occupied territories, the move
would not lower oil prices.
Other prominent Jewish Republicans, such as Max Fisher of
Detroit, and George Klein of New York, were also taken by
surprise by the Connally speech, Hauser said. She said Fisher

National Urban League, on Monday denounced black leaders who
have voiced support for the Palestine Liberation Organization and
declared that black-Jewish relatioAs should not be endangered by
"ill-considered flirtation with terrorist groups devoted to the ex-
termination of Israel."
Speaking before some 1,000 persons at the 65th annual meet-
ing of the National Conference of Catholic Charities in Kansas
City, Mo., Jordan said., It is time to stop providing joy to the
cross-burners and the bomb throwers. Indeed, it is time to
strengthen the traditional fruitful alliance between the black
community and the Jewish community."
Jordan, who spoke shortly before President Carter addressed
the same group, was applauded at least 15 times during his 30-
minute talk.
Rev. Jesse Jackson, who led a black delegation to the
Mideast last month and embraced PLO leader Yasir Arafat,
was in New York Tuesday to speak at the Progressive Na-
tional Baptist Convention in Harlem and to attend an Arab
League luncheon in honor of United Nations Secretary Gen-
eral Kurt Waldheim. He said it was healthy for black leaders to disagree. He said blacks
could disagree on foreign policy issues without splitting apart.
The leaders of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, which represents 1.5 million black
Baptists, issued an open letter saying that Jordan's attack on the other black leaders has "brought an
end to the masquerade of the Urban League as a civil rights organization" and Jordan "as a civil
rights leader." The letter was written by Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker, pastor of the Convent Avenue
Baptist Church where the convention was held.
In his Kansas City speech, Jordan also asserted, "The black civil rights movement is based on
non-violent principles. It has nothing in common with groups whose claims to legitimacy are
compromised by cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians and schoolchildren."
He referred to "sideshows" in the Middle East as displacing vital survivla issues for blacks, and
mentioned such issues as America's ghettos, the aspirations of black America for equality, and the
poverty facing black youth.
"The only ones who will benefit from the black-Jewish tensions are the enemies of both
groups," Jordan said. He called for strengthening ties between Jews and blacks, noting that
"events following Ambassador Andrew Young's resignation have led to deep strains" in

Jewish Profs Win Nobel Prizes

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Two physicists, one the son and the other the grandson of
Jewish immigrants, have become the third generation of Jewish professors at Harvard
University to win the Nobel Prize for achievements in their specialized field. Sheldon
Glashow and Steven Weinberg who were classmates in their high school and college days
and now teach at Harvard, will share the $193,000 award with a Moslem scientist from
Pakistan, Abdus Salam. The three scientists have been friends for years.
In addition, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Prof. Herbert C. Brown of
Purdue University, who began his teaching career at Wayne University in Detroit in the
Glashow and Weinberg were cited for their work in the electromagnetic in-
teraction between elementary particles. In announcing the awards, the Royal
Academy in Stockholm said the contributions of Glashow, Weinberg and Salam
were of great importance to the development of particle physics during the 1970s.
Glashow is a nephew by marriage of Detroit Judge John Wise. Although Glashow has
never visited Detroit, the judge and his wife have visited him and his family regularly in
Massachusetts and have a close relationship.
Glashow is a member of Temple Israel in Boston where three of his four children attend
