RAYMOND WEIL

New York (JTA) — A Jewish
engineer who charged Ralph
Parsons Company, a California-
based international contracting
firm, with religious discrimina-
tion for turning him down for a
job in Saudi Arabia, has receiv-
ed a $72,500 settlement from
the company, it was announced
last week.
The complainant, Morris
Hochberg, claimed in a U.S.
District Court that although his
professional qualifications were
never questioned, he was re-
jected after a Parsons official
asked him if he was Jewish, and
he answered in the affirmative.
Hochberg was supported in his
suit by the American Jewish
Congress. The engineer was
working in Chicago in 1981
when he replied to an advertise-
ment in the Chicago Tribune
calling for a "principal project
manager." After checking his
qualifications, a Parsons official
invited him by telephone to
come to California at company
expense for a series of inter-
views.
In California, he learned that
the work location was in Yanbu,
Saudi Arabia.
His suit charged the Parsons
Company with violating Title
VII of the Civil Rights Act,
which prohibits discrimination
on graounds of race or religion.
The Company agreed to pay
$72,500 in damages as part of an
out-of-court settlement. The
Parsons Company, without ad-
mitting guilt — a customary
practice in such agreements —
promised it would adhere in the
future to a policy of non-discrim-
inatory processing of appli-
cations.

New York (JTA) — The
American Jewish Congress last
week called upon Secretary of
Defense Caspar Weinberger to
bar members of the armed
forces from participating in ac-
tivities of violent racist groups.
In a letter to Weinberger,
AJCongress president Theodore
Mann expressed dismay that
soldiers and marines in North
Carolina are active members of
groups like the Ku Klux Klan
and the White Patriot Party, as
reported in the press.
" We are particularly dis-
turbed," Mann wrote, "to read
than an army spokesman stated
that the military was powerless
to take any disciplinary action
against the soldiers involved."
Members of the armed forces
should not be permitted to par-
ticipate in the activities of
