College Scholarship
Washington — President Bush signed
into law a math, science, engineering
and health care scholarship act that
will help train students for new, high
tech jobs.
"This is great news for Michigan
and America's economic future
said U.S. Rep. Joe Knollenberg, R-
Farmington Hills, who sponsored
the act. "As we work to build the new
Michigan economy, we must focus on
drawing in emerging sectors compa-
Last spring, Knollenberg introduced
H.R. 1568, the Henry Ford Scholarship
Program Act of 2007, which would
provide scholarships to high-achiev-
ing students to pursue undergraduate
degrees in mathematics, science, engi-
neering and health related fields. That
bill was incorporated into this year's
"Higher Education Opportunity Act"
(HR 4137).
Students will be eligible for the
scholarship if they attend college
full-time in pursuit of a degree in
mathematics, science, engineering
and health-related fields. They will
need to have completed a rigorous
secondary curriculum in math or sci-
ence to be eligible for their first year
of study.
After finishing the first year of
undergrad with a 3.0 GPA or higher,
students must be full-time enrolled,
pursuing a math or science-related
major. They then are eligible for the
full $5,000/year scholarship, up to a
total of $20,000 per student, as long
as they maintain their major and
The scholarship program was
praised by Gary Russi, president
of Oakland University. "Oakland
University prides itself in its health,
math and science curriculum, and
these funds will enable and ensure
that the best and brightest students
are able to receive the education they
deserve to keep our state and our
country competitive in a global mar-
ketplace," Russi said.

Fighting Bias
Detroit — The Michigan Roundtable
for Diversity and Inclusion (MRDI) is
joining law enforcement officials, leg-
islators and other civil rights organiza-
tions in supporting the Michigan Anti
Bias Crime Statute recently introduced
in the Michigan House and Senate.
"The most basic of human rights
is the expectation of safety. This
human right is not reality for those
in our state who are victims of crime

because of their race, religion, disabil-
ity or sexual orientation:' said Thomas
Costello, president and CEO of MRDI.
House Bill 6341, sponsored by
Representative Paul Condino and
currently in the House Judiciary
Committee, and Senate Bill 610,
sponsored by Sen. Hansen Clarke
and currently in the Senate Judiciary
Committee, will change state law by
adding disability and sexual orienta-
tion to the list of groups against whom
bias would qualify as a hate crime. \
It also strengthens existing law
by allowing crimes against victims
selected because of their association
with a targeted group to qualify as
hate crimes.
According to the FBI, Michigan has
the third-highest number of reported
hate crimes in the country. U.S.
Census Bureau data indicate Michigan
is the most racially segregated state in
the country.

Prominent Jewish Spies
Washington/JTA — Several promi-
nent Jews spied for the United States
during World War II, newly released
documents show.
Former Supreme Court Justice
Arthur Goldberg, philanthropist
and businessman Laurence Tisch
and baseball player Moe Berg were
among the 35,000 men and women
whose files from their service in the
World War II-era Office of Strategic
Services were released on Aug. 14 by
the National Archives. The files cover
35,000 Americans, both civilian and
military, who worked in some capacity
for the intelligence agency, the precur-
sor to the CIA.
Goldberg's file notes that as both a
civilian and a member of the Army,
he supervised a section in the Secret
Intelligence Branch of OSS to maintain
contact with labor groups and orga-
nizations regarded as potential resis-
tance elements in enemy-occupied
and enemy countries. He organized
anti-Nazi European transportation
workers into an extensive intelligence
Steve Tilley, director of the tex-
tual archives services division of
the National Archives, said Jewish
Americans of that era might have
been particularly attractive as recruits
to the agency because of their educa-
tion and their European background,
particularly their knowledge of lan-
TV chef Julia Child and Middle East
negotiator Ralph Bunche were among
the other names in the records.
