ames are sure to provide competitors and
fans with a lifetime of memories.

Washington (JTA) — Eli Wiesel,
chairman of the U.S. Holocaust
Memorial Council, praised the Jus-
tice Department's Office of Special
Investigations for its years-long
battle to deport Archbishop Valerian
Trifa from the United States. •
Thousands of. Romanian Jews
died during the Holocaust as a direct
result of Trifa's anti : Semitic incite-


ments in Romania in 1942 when he
led the fascist Romanian Iron Guard
in a pogrom against Jews. "This suc-
cessful action by our Department of
Justice's OSI signals once again that
there is no room for such war crimi-
nals in our midst. I applaud our gov-
ernment for the expulsion of Trifa."

are set for 7:30 p.m. at West Bloom-

Because the Detroit competition
will include nearly three times the
number of participants than there

Memphis (site of the first festival);"
according to Jay Robinson, chairman
of the Games. "In Memphis, there
were maybe 250 or 300 kids from out
of state. In Detroit; with so many
more kids, the additional host
families and volunteers, the logisti-

what the organizers encountered two
years ago."

are native Detroiters in their 40s,
successful in their professional fields
and extremely active in Jewish
causes. And that's the problem. They
are sometimes so busy, with such di-
