met with Weizmann sup-
porters.

partner, with his twin
brother, Louis, in the

Blumberg Brothers In-

his 42 years as a resident
of Detroit he was ex-

the AJCommittee that

Middle East conflict now

forms of anti-Semitism.
Mrs. Tullia Zevi,
president of the Union of
Italian Jewish Corn-

"classic" anti-Semitism was
diminishing in Western
Europe but, she stressed,
"continued vigilance
against known neo-Nazi
and anti-Semitic forces"
was still necessary.
The AJCommittee an-
nounced that its Chicago
chapter would study Jewish
voting • patterns in the re-
cent Chicago mayoral elec-
tion. Some 43 percent of the
Jewish vote — 2 1/2 times the
percentage of other whites
— went to black Democratic
candidate Harold Washing-
ton: Washington's oppo-
nent, Republican Bernard
Epton, was Jewish.
