Jews and Blacks:
`Natural Allies'

Detroit Mayor Coleman
Young traces the history
of cooperation between
blacks and Jews.

BY HEIDI PRESS
Local News Editor

Detroit Mayor Coleman A.
Young last week called Jews and
blacks "natural allies" in the • fight
against racism, bigotry and oppres-
sion and added that the city of De-
troit can't survive without the coop-
eration of the suburbs.
Speaking to nearly 300 persons
at the Jewish Community Council's
delegate assembly at Cong. Shaarey

political wrangling over the drawn-
out budgetary process is concluded
in June.
Last year, the Legislature
appropriated $50,000 toward the
HMC's 1986 budget of $600,000 as
an historical preservation grant. The
same request for 1987 was nixed in
a Senate subcommittee last week.
Sen. William A. Sederburg (R-
East Lansing), chairman of the Se-
nate Appropriations Committee, told
The Jewish News that the Governor
