Ronald Reagan the GOP Candidate Has Max Fisher as Advocate

Max M. Fisher has already entered Ronald
Reagan's portals and has become one of the chief
adherents of the Republican candidate for President.
On the occasion of the Republican National Conven-
tion he expressed his views in thin statement he has
written for The Detroit Jewish News while attending
the sessions of the Jewish Agency for Israel in
Jerusalem last week.

regarded as inept — in office
for another four years, or we
can elect new, competent
leadership.
This year Detroit has the
honor of being host to the
Republican national con-
vention, which will put
forth its candidates for the
highest elected offices in the
land. The person who will
stand as the Republican
candidate for the
Presidency of the United
States is a man of compe-
tency, trust and honor:

helped enact the toughest
pollution controls in the
country and established the
state's first consumer pro-
tection agency. His welfare
reform program reduced the
case load while increasing
benefits to the truly needy.
Ronald Reagan will
draw this country out of
the inflation-recession
quagmire into which
Carter has lead it. His
economic record is out-
standing. When he took
office as governor,
California was ridden
with debt; when he left,
the state had a half-
billion dollar surplus,
and that was after he re-
turned $5.7 billion to the
people in tax rebates.
Our armed forces must be
rebuilt, and Reagan is the
man to do it. He is opposed
to a peacetime draft, but he
will increase pay to service
people, expand our reserves,
and make full use of our
superior technology. He be-
lieves in a strong America,
an America that will stand
up to its adversaries and

RONALD REAGAN

stand by its friends.
Reagan is fully aware
that Israel is a valuable ally
of the United States, and
has repeatedly stated that
Israel is America's only re-
maining strategic asset in
the Middle East. His dedica-
tion to its freedom and secu-
rity is unquestioned. His
policies are clear: Full mili-
tary backing of Israel; no
negotiations with a PLO
bent on Israel's destruction;
no Palestinian state; a
united Jerusalem under Is-
raeli sovereignty.

Reagan is no newcomer to
Jewish affairs. As governor,
he saw through passage of a
bill which allowed banks
and other institutions to
purchase Israel Bonds. He
himself was instrumental
in the sale of $10 million in
Bonds to the non-Jewish
community, for which Abba
Eban presented him with
the Israel Medallion of
Valor in 1971.
During the Six-Day
War, he spearheaded one
of the biggest pro-Israel
rallies ever held in
California. When he
learned that his country
club would not admit

with the Portuguese depart-
ing from Angola and
Mozambique and the estab-
lishment of Zimbabwe. He
explained that the policies
of the South African gov-
ernment regarding the
non-white population have
been constantly changing ,
and being liberalized."
He noted also that "Jews
tend to be liberal, by South
African standards, and con-
tinue to do much to
ameliorate the condition of
the underprivileged there."
South Africa's Jewish
community is "a model
community for its organiza-
tion, discipline, generosity
to local and overseas causes
and its deep. attachment to
and spiritual bonds with Is-
rael," Hoppenstein said. It
makes its mark on every
facet of public life, com-
merce and industry, science
and medicine, culture, 'art
and music, sport and
entertainment."

Israel-S. Africa Trade

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Trade between Israel and
South Africa, an issue fre-
quently raised by the
enemies of both, is a neglig-
ible proportion of each coun-
try's overall foreign trade.
Moreover, it is conducted
openly whereas many coun-
tries which officially
boycott South Africa, trade
with it clandestinely.
Those points were made
by Abe Hoppenstein, Con-
sul General at the South Af-
rican Embassy in Washing-
ton and a South African
Jewish community leader,
in a recent address at the
Northern Virginia Jewish
Community Center in Ar-
lington.
Israel-South African
trade represents only one-
half of one percent of each
country's total trade or the
equivalent of one cent in
two dollars, Hoppenstein
said. By any measurement,
trade with South Africa by
the U.S., Western Europe
and Third 'Worldcountries
far exceeds Israel's.
"The enemies of both
countries were con-
stantly endeavoring to
bedevil" Israeli-•outh
African trade, he said.
"Not only Britain,
France, West Germany
and the U.S. trade with
South Africa but many
Third World nations do
so as well. The only dif-
ference is that Israel
trades with South Africa
by day and the Third
World nations trade with
us by night," he added.
Hoppenstein noted "the
great atmosphere of change
in the world today," particu-
larly in southern Africa

Jews, he withdrew his
membership.
Reagan has demon-
strated his commitment.
He is a friend, a man we can
trust. I intend to vigorously
work for his election.
We have tolerated the
present Administration
long enough. The ,Carter
experiment has failed. This
election is our opportunity
to rebuild America. Let us
seize the opportunity and
make our next President
Ronald Reagan.
