BORIS SMOLAR

From the small two-room
national headquarters of
Anti-Defamation
_ the
Ln League of B'nai B'rith,
which was located in one of
o the "Loop" buildings in
Chicago where the ADL was
founded in 1913, to the pre-
sent imposing ADL head-
quarters in New York — lo-
cated in its own nine-story
building opposite the
United Nations and facing
ti-• East River — is quite a
\ - nce. • The distance is
even longer between the
ADL activities of today and
those of the early years of its
establishment.
The ADL opens its annual
five-day
national meeting

on May 30 in New York to
chart its policies for the
coming year and discuss the
challenges it will be facing.
In the early years of its
- existence, the primary func-
tion of the ADL was to com-
bat the mockery of Jews by
vaudeville actors who pre-
sented the American Jew in
their acts on the stage in a
false and ridiculous light.
Within a few years, the dis-
paraging characterizations
of Jews disappeared com-
pletely from the American
stage. With the march of
time, the ADL started an in-
tensified campaign against
the refusal by some summer
resorts, hotels and clubs to
admit Jews; and against
, other forms of anti-Jewish
bias.
The ADL reached great
strength in the 1920s when
the Ku Klux Klan appeared
as a strong factor in prop-
agating virulent actions
against Jews, blacks and
Catholics, protected by
hooded anonimity at mass
meetings which attracted
millions of adherents. The
ADL excelled itself by
penetrating into the ranks
of the KKK and exposing
the leaders and their
methods, which included
physical terror. It thereby
diminished the KKK's
power and influence. The
KKK and other anti-
Semitic groups began to
fear the ADL, calling it "the
Jewish Secret Service."
The ADL was similarly
active in exposing bigots
like Father Coughlin, the
Royal Oak priest who con-
ducted vitriolic propaganda
against American Jewry
nationwide over numerous
radio stations throughout
the country. It played an
active leadership role in
combatting the German
scan Bund which con-
_ ted Hitler's Fifth Col-
umn in America. It stood in
the forefront of combatting
and discrediting extremist
and fascist organizations
like the Christian Front and
other anti-Semitic groups
which emerged in this coun-
try following Hitler's rise to
power in Germany.
In today's divided and un-
certain world, combatting
anti-Semitism and other
forms of bigotry remains
ADL's principal priority. To
its present annual five-day

,

r

meeting, the ADL comes
with a crowded agenda indi-
cating the challenges it
faces in the current year
and the next.
Among the major chal-
lenges is the controversy
created by the anti-Jewish
innuendos and remarks voi-
ced in the Presidential elec-
tion campaign by the Rev.
Jesse Jackson and his
right-hand supporter, Louis
Farrakhan, the leader of the
Black Muslim organization,
the Nation of Islam.
Other challenges include
the Arab-Israeli conflict;
the rise of anti-Semitic ac-
tivity in Europe linked to
the presence of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion; anti-Semitic and anti-
Zionist propaganda in the
United Nations expressed
by the Soviet Union and the
Arab countries; the almost
total . suspension by the
Soviet government of
Jewish emigration from the
USSR and the encourage-
ment by the Kremlin of
anti-Jewish propaganda in
the Soviet Union, in. addi-
tion to violating their
human rights; combatting
Arab propaganda activites
in the United States; and, of
course, dealing with the
problems still presented by
organized hate groups in
this country.

Four get life
in Gross killing

Jerusalem (JTA) — Four
Palestinians were sen-
tenced to life imprisonment
by a military court in Nab-
lus Monday and four others
received sentences of 10-25
years for the stabbing mur-
der of yeshiva student Aha-
ron Gross in the Hebron
marketplace last July 7.
The men, all in their early
20s, were described as
fanatical Moslems who
want to impose Islamic rule
over Palestine and oust the
Jews.
Gross was fatally stabbed
while waiting for friends at
the marketplace. His as-
sailants seized the gun he
was carrying and escaped in
a car. Jewish settlers later
burned down his mar-
ketplace in reprisal.
