Swimming Pool

could be a major
burden for the JCC.
"The Center can't absorb
this cost," said Maddin.
The plans for JPM call for
two locker rooms (there is on-
ly one now), a six-lane swim-
ming pool, a better-defined
nursery area on the east side
of JPM and a new multi-
purpose area on the west.
"This is the time that the
Jimmy Prentis Morris
Building should be enhanc-
ed," said Maddin. "There is a
catharsis where everything
now seems to be coming
together" at the site, in-
cluding construction of the
Teitel Federation Apart-.
ments, 1-696 and the park-
like decks over the freeway.
"Maybe we can find some
endowment money" to help
pay for the JPM
enhancements. "The types of
(JCC) memberships we are
talking about won't cover the
costs, but you won't find
anyone in that area who will
say he doesn't want a pool!'
Oak Park resident Paul
Levine is helping lead the
petition drive because
previous requests have been
turned down, he said. "We
know they are close to a deci-
sion on this and wanted to
give community input. People
don't feel well served by JPM.
There are no evening pro-
grams — everything is out in
West Bloomfield!'
Levine said Hebrew, dance
and youth programs have
been moved from JPM to the
Maple/Drake JCC. "If you
look at any category in the
JCC brochure, you'll see the
difference," he said, listing 32
programs for youngsters in
West Bloomfield against
three in Oak Park. "We feel
ignored at JPM" because its
programs are centered
around senior citizens.
Dr. Morton Plotnick, JCC
executive director, said final
drawings and construction
cost estimates for the JPM
enhancement proposal are be-
ing completed. He estimated
the cost of the pool alone to be
$600,000 of the $1.8-$2
million total.
Federation's Culture and
Education budgeting and
planning division will con-
sider the JPM proposals.
Chairman Allan Nachman
said the division "has been
expecting the proposal for
some time," but he declined to
speculate on how the division
might vote. "Once the pro-
posal comes through, we will
deal with it promptly," he
The JCC's Maddin defend-
ed the Federation's stance on
the issue over the years. "It
would be a disservice to say
that Federation has been


holding back or holding this
"They are trying their best
to use community resources
wisely," he said. "It is a very
complicated, soul-searching
kind of thing. We need a deci-
sion for years to come . . . We
can't trade a swimming pool
against other community
needs." But Maddin believes
"the community will make
the capital expenditure!"

Washington PAC, he said,
has given about $350,000 to
political candidates this year.
FEC reports show that
Michigan recipients of
MOPAC funds for the 1988
primary and general election
ballot were: U.S. Sen. Donald
Riegle, Jr., ' $5,000; U.S. Rep.
Bob Carr of East Lansing,
$2,500; U.S. Rep. John
Dingell of Dearborn, $1,000;
U.S. Rep. William Ford of
Taylor, $2,500; U.S. Rep. Den-
nis Hertel of Detroit, $2,500;
State Sen. Mitch Irwin of
Sault Ste. Marie, (who seeks
to unseat Republican Rep.
Robert Davis), $5,000; Lana
Pollack of Ann Arbor, (who is
trying to unseat Republican
Sen. Carl Pursell), $2,500;
U.S. Rep. Howard Wolpe of
Delta Thwnship, $5,000.
U.S. Rep. Sander Levin of
Southfield, also known as a
friend to Israel, has acted as
a consultant to MOPAC, yet
has never received MOPAC
funds. The group's board
members say they have in-
dividually contributed to his
campaign and that MOPAC
would give him funds if his
political seat was in jeopardy.
MOPAC was founded in
1986 to funnel money to
Democratic Party candidates
who support Israel, minority
rights, the separation of
church and state and are pro-
choice on the abortion issue.




Uprising Takes
Deadlier Turn

Jerusalem (JTA) — Securi-
ty forces demolished four
houses, sealed five more and
imposed a curfew on Nablus
last week. The city is the
largest Arab municipality on
the West Bank.
Israel Defense Force troops,
meanwhile, have come under
grenade attack, indicating a
new, deadlier turn in the
Palestinian uprising.
The houses destroyed or
sealed by the IDF belong to
nine members of a terrorist
