approved, they'll raise prices
anyway."
Norman Naimark holds
that the recent ruling by the
administrative law judge ap-
pointed by the U.S. Justice
Department that the JOA is
unnecessary "was right on
target. lb see people falling in
line [behind the JOA] is
shameful:'
Sol Lachman terms the
newspaper's argument "a
fake. Due to mismanagement,
the Free Press dug their own
grave?' The JOA, he con-
tinues, is unhealthy. If the
JOA is not approved, the
paper will not fold. "They'll
sell it for whatever price they

can."
While none of those inter-
viewed said that there was
any connection between their
opinion of the Free Press'
Mideast reportage and their
opinion about the JOA,
Lachman cracked the door
open a bit.
"There's a small part of my
soul that has a little glee"
that the Free Press says it is
in mortal danger. Still, says
Lachman, "I'm not praying
that God buries the Free
Press. I'm not going to give
them the evil eye."

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1988

Practically from the time he
commenced his political
career, G. Mennen "Soapy"
Williams was equally
dedicated to libertarian
movements. They included
enforcement of civil liberties,
justice and respect for the
blacks and all minorities, and
the Zionist cause.
Several years before Israel's
rebirth as an autonomous

state, he and his wife, Nancy
— he was seldom without her
— participated in Zionist
rallies which were assembled
to proclaim fulfillment of pro-
phecies advocated in the
Zionist credo. They were joint-
ly religiously motivated and
were inspired by the Zionist
ideal.
A Jewish National Fund
forest in Israel attests to the
esteem in which Williams
was held by the Jewish com-
munity. The JNF Council of
Detroit established the
Williams-Hart Forest in the
late 1950s in honor jointly of
Williams and Philip A. Hart,
who succeeded him as gover-
nor of Michigan and later was
elected to the U.S. Senate.
Both were active in their
lifetimes in support of Israel.
In the last decade, the
Williams couple were regular
attendees of the annual din-
ners of the Magen David
Adorn — the equivalent in
Israel of the Red Cross. They
were fascinated by the
achievements attained by this
cause, as they did at all func-
tions with which they were
identified.
