Los Angeles — Journalists
on the staff of the Jewish
Journal are expressing con-
siderable chagrin over the ac-
tion of their publisher in pull-
ing at the last minute a
scheduled article on Michael
and Lowell Milken from the
April 7 issue of the weekly.
A source familiar with the
operation of the Journal said
that publisher Ed Brennglass
ordered the removal of the ar-
ticle and two smaller sidebars
on the Milken brothers just
an hour or so before the paper
was to start its press run.
The deleted article was
highly complimentary of the
Milken family's generosity
but also mentioned the indict-
ment of the "junk bond" in-
novator on federal racketeer-
ing and securities fraud
charges. Michael and Lowell
Milken pleaded innocent to
the charges Friday in a New
York federal courtroom.
Brenglass allegedly ex-
plained that he had an agree-
ment with the Jewish Federa-
tion Council not to mention
the Milken case in the
Journal.
The Journal, whose 65,000
circulation makes it the
largest of the three Jewish
weeklies in Los Angeles, was
owned outright by the federa-
tion until two years ago. After
consistently losing money, the
paper was sold in 1987 to
eight major federation con-
tributors and leaders, who in-
corporated the paper and
named Brennglass as
publisher.
The source cited a state-
ment by Brennglass that he
had polled the other board
members of the Journal, who
agreed with his decision to
remove the articles.
The two Milken brothers
are natives and residents of
the Los Angeles area, and

their family foundations have
been the leading benefactors
of numerous Jewish and
general causes in their
hometown.
The unpublished article
reported widespread concern
over whether to government
might move to freeze these
charity dollars if it claims and
proves that the dispersed
funds were obtained illegally.
The largest beneficiaries in
the L.A. Jewish community,
according to the article, have
been:
• The Jewish Federation
Council itself, including more
than $5 million for the fun-
ding of the Bernard Milken
Jewish Community Campus
in the San Fernando Valley
section of the city.
• The Simon Wiesenthal
Center's Museum of
Tolerance, now under con-
struction, as well as $165,000
for the anonymous purchase
of letters written by Anne
Frank to American pen pals,
which were purchased at an
auction.
• Endowment of a marriage
and family counseling pro-
gram and book acquisitions
at the University of Judaism,
a Conservative institution.
• Endowment of the Sarah
Milken Building to house the
day school at Stephen S. Wise
Temple, a Reform synagogue.
The two Milken brothers and
their families are active
members of the temple and
have funded teacher grants
and cantorial scholarships.
Other major beneficiaries
have been the Bet Tzedek
public interest law program,
the Anti-Defamation's
League's multi-media pro-
gram to fight prejudice, and
various Jewish day schools.
Brennglass could not be im-
mediately reached for com-
ment over the weekend.

Bill Would Monitor
Activities By PLO

Washington (JTA) — Two
senators were to introduce a
bill this week that would re-
quire the Bush administra-
tion to report every four
months on Palestine Libera-
tion Organization activities,
as long as the United States
continues its dialogue with
the PLO.
Sens. Connie Mack (R-Fla.)
and Joseph Lieberman (D-
Conn.) said they do not oppose
the U.S. decision last
December to begin its
dialogue with the PLO, and

do not see the bill as a first
step in ending that dialogue.
"We are trying to put a
positive approach on this,
that in fact there is now a
dialogue, that there has been
a positive statement on the
part of Mr. Arafat," Mack
said. There is a need for more
"positive actions" by the
PLO, he said.
Besides requiring Bush to
tell Congress of any PLO
plans to repeal sections of its
covenant, the bill would ask
Bush to report, "in
