itehedis-

propaganda.
A four-member CJC dele-
gation, appearing before the
Parliamentary Committee
on Racial Minorities, prop-
osed, among other thin6
that the word "wilfully" be
deleted from the criminal
code dealing with hatemon-
gers in order to facilitate
their prosecution.
The CJC deputation
pointed out that Canada has
the unenviable reputation
of being the largest exporter
or anti-Semitic propaganda
materials to West Germany
because of inadequate con-
trols. Most of the material
originates with and is dis-
tributed by Ernst Zundel
who operates in Toronto
under the corporate name,
"Samisdat." His literature
denies that the Holocaust
ever occurred. __-
Weaknesses in the law
also permitted Toro .nto
clergyman Paul Mel-
nichuk to preach anti-
Semitic sermons from his
pulpit, accusing Jewish
businessmen and profes-
sionals of cheating, the
Parliamentary Commit-
tee members were told.
The CJC delegation
asked that the criminal code
be amended to apply special
sanctions against vandals
who desecrate cemeteries
and houses of worship; that
better monitoring bodies be
established to record racist
acts and public complaints
about them; and that anti-
discrimination clauses be
inserted into contracts for
federally and provincially
funded projects.
The deputation was
headed by Milton Harris,
president of the CJC, and
included Alan Rose, vice
president, Frank Schles-
linger, chairman of Quebec
community relations, and
Sharon Wolfe, special com-
mittee chairman.

• 's Zionist Work Cited
Sophie Sislin

More than seven decades
of dedicated services for the
Labor Zionist movement
were registered at a tes-
timonial function given this
week by Club One of
Pioneer Women Naamat in
honor of Sophie Sislin.
Her late husband, David,
was among the most active
LZ leaders in Detroit and he
always had the cooperation
of his wife. But while she
was often in the
background, Sophie Sislin
was never isolated either
from leadership or activity
in the ranks. This received
acclaim through the honor
accorded her by Pioneer
Women/Naamat.
The Sislins became active
in the Labor Zionist move-
ment and Farband, which
operated a Yiddish school,
beginning in 1925. That
year, Sophie and others
were instrumental in get-
ting a charter for the
Pioneer Women at the Poale
Zion convention in Chicago.

In 1929, the Detroit
Poale Zion purchased 160
acres near Chelsea for
Unser Camp and Kin-
derwelt. Sophie was re-
gistrar of the camp for 30
years and David was on
the board of directors.

Mrs. Sislin had many
friends in the Zionist
movement, and counted
among them Beba Idelson,
David Ben-Gurion, Golda
Meir, Rahel Yanait Ben-Zvi
and others.
Mrs. Sislin, who recently

turned 90, remains active in
fund-raising efforts and has
been honored as Pioneer
Women's Woman of the
Year in the past. Both
Pioneer Women/Naamat
and Histadrut are creating
scholarships in her honor.

Next to its

deliciousness, the greatest talent PHILADELPHIA
BRAND Cream Cheese has is its versatility. Spread it
on some crackers, add a slice of olive and presto!
– elegant hors d'oeuvres. Spread on a slice of bread
or matzoh with jam and presto! – an after school lip-smacking
snack for the children. Then there's homemade pound cake
and the lush desserts. And who ever heard of a Sunday
breakfast without PHILADELPHIA BRAND Cream Cheese and bagels!
PHILADELPHIA BRAND Cream Cheese, traditional style or soft
style in a handy serving cup. They're from Kraft so you know
they're guaranteed. And Kosher.
