SERVING DETROIT'S METROPOLITAN JEWISH COMMUNITY
$7 million grant for
raderation Apts. awaits
BY ALAN HITSKY
Officials of the Jewish Federa-
tion Apartments took a cautious ap-
proach this week to the news that
the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development had awarded
them $7,170,000 to construct a third
building adjacent to the Morris
Branch of the Jewish Community
Center in Oak Park.
But Oak Park and area political
officials were exhuberant over the
news that 150 apartment units
promised years ago during the
negotiations over the 1-696 freeway
would become a reality.
Michael B. Perlman, president
of the Federation Apartments, and
executive director Helen Naimark,
were awaiting the official an-
nouncement from HUD for the proj-
ect. The grant was announced last
week in Washington by Michigan's
Congressional delegation and HUD
officials, and locally by Oak Park
Mayor Charlotte Rothstein.
Mrs. Naimark said HUD restric-
tions will apply to waiting lists for
the new units and for construction
plans. "Without the papers in our
hands we really don't know if we can
use our old waiting list or have to
compile a new one."
Asked whether the HUD grant
would cover the entire building costs
of the project, she answered, "Prob-
ably not." She expects that planning
will take up to a year before con-
struction actually begins.
The two Federation Apartments
buildings presently at the Oak Park
site house approximately 300 senior
citizens in 268 units. The new
Next week's conference will
demonstrate how local companies can
profit from the Free Trade Agreement.

agan Administration indicated

bombing of the Palestine Liberation
Organization headquarters in
Tunisia a "legitimate" act of self-
defense against terrorism.
Asked about the Israeli raid,
,ate Department Deputy Spokes-
an Charles Rudman said "Without
It the facts," he could not comment
specifically about the Israeli action.
He then added: "But as a matter of
principle, it is our view it is legiti-
mate self-defense to respond appro-
priately to acts of terrorism."
Rudman noted that the the
United States understands that "this
action was not intended as an offen-
sive act against Tunisia."
The spokesman said that Israel
used U.S.-acquired equipment on the
raid, but he could not say what kind.
But he stressed that "we were not
