New York (JTA) — Tens of
thousands of Americans
farms are dying each year,
taking with them the farm
equipment manufacturer, the
auto worker who makes farm
trucks and the small food-
supplier. The chain of events
reaches into the life of the ur-
ban dweller, Jim Hightower
said at a conference on
"Judaism and the Land:
Responding to the Rural
Hightower, Texas commis-
sioner of agriculture, was
keynote speaker last Sunday
at the conference, held at
Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion.
The conference was sponsored
by 14 separate Jewish
organizations, including the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, the American
Jewish Committee and
members of several congrega-
tions spanning all movements
in American Jewry, along
with representatives of
farmers' advocacy groups.
He said that 235,000 farm-
ers have been "squeezed out
of agriculture as a result of
the price-busting, surplus-
generating 1985 farm bill,
and it is going to offer might
cold comfort to the 130,000
other farmers who are fore-
cast to go under in 1988."
Conference coordinator
Frank Hornstein of Queens,
N.Y., food and farm policy con-
sultant for the UAHC, said,
"What we are trying to do is
raise urban Jewish con-
sciousness about the impor-
tant issues related to the
rural problem and how it af-
fects urban people."

WJC Urges

Geneva (JTA) — Daniel
Lack, a representative of the
World Jewish Congress, urg-
ed every nation to take the
necessary steps to prosecute
and punish war criminals
still at large and to put an
end to propaganda by
Holocaust revisionists.
Speaking at the annual
conference of the United Na-
tions Human Rights Commis-
sion, Lack said, "This is par-
ticularly vital at a time when
neo-Nazism is again on the
upsurge and when pro-
ponents of this revival try to
claim that the events of the
Holocaust were fictitious."
Lack thanked the govern-
ments of the United States,
Canada, Australia and Bri-
tain for adopting laws
facilitating the prosecution of
suspected Nazi war criminals.
