Jewish Defense League New York (JTA) — The militant Jewish Defense League was denounced - by a Reform rabbinical leader as "in essence, no different" from the Ku KIux Klan and as a group which "violates every ethic and tradition of Judaism and every concept of civil liberties and democratic process in American life. Rabbi Maurice N. ,Eisendrath, president of t h e

Union of American Hebrew Congregations, the Reform congregational body, made the charge in a report to the UAHC board of trustees which is bolding its semi-annual three-day meeting. Rabbi Eisendrath's attack on the Jewish Defense League was the first from 'any Jewish organization, A number of League members gathered last week in front of Temple Emanu-El, armed with baseball bats and chains for an expected confrontation with James Forman of the National Black Economic Development Conference, which is demanding '"reparations" from churches and synagogues of half a billion dollars.

Social Club Ban New York (JTA)—Because Jews are often unable to acquire the kind of social club - membership considered a virtual necessity in the world of big business, they are seriously hampered in their effort to climb the executive ladder, the American Jewish Committee reported this week. The finding was based on a seven-year study by Dr. Reed M. Powell, dean of the Ohio Slate University business school, who made the study in Los Angeles and San Francisco when he was on

NJ. Senate Okays 'Silent Prayer' Bill Trenton, NJ, (JTA) — The New Jersey Senate approved 30-4 this week a controversial "silent prayer" bill following a hot debate. It went to Gov. Richard J. Hughes who was expected to veto it. He had vetoed similar legislation in 1968. The measure, which would require all public school pupils to participate in a daily period of silent prayer, was opposed by Jewish community councils and national Jewish community relations agencies in the state. They held that the law would create a serious conflict for many pupils who, because of pressure from teachers and classmates, might feel obligated to act in violence of personal beliefs. Opponents said that the measure'was: a "dodge to get around the - United'. States Supreme Court'decision" which prohibits public school prayer. The sponsor, Sen. Frank S.

Government Action Urged To Curb Drug Use by Youth New York (JTA)-The National Jewish Welfare Board urged the Federal Government to take a series of steps to control the abuse of drugs which, it said, has become "increasingly prevalent among middleclass youth and adults." The appeal, in the form of a resolution and a position paper on drug abuse, was based on responses the JWB received to a questionnaire it sent to its affiliated J e w i s h Community Centers and YM-VWHAs all over the country last year. Staff members at those agencies reported "a progressive rise in the incidence of drug involvement by teen-agers known to them." The resolution and position paper were adopted by the JWB's board of directors in a vote by mail. The position paper said: "The National Jewish Welfare Board's concern with the misuse of drugs derives from the Jewish tradition that any abuse of the human

body' is an immoral act." It noted that since: ''dependence on drugs can be psychologically and physiologically- damaging, the problem is of added significance to Jewish Community Centers serving as agencies of personality development, as well as instruments for the attainment of the physical and mental well-being". o£ American Jews." The. recommendations f o r government action included: making available information to schools, community centers and other local public and private agencies on the various types of drugs and the effects of their use on body and mind; additional Federal training programs for enforcement of antinarcotics laws; an increased number of local treatment centers ; closer cooperation w i t h other nations to control the use of dangerous drugs; and more v uniform state and Federal regulations governing the sale of i dangerous drugs.

The committee said, an an analysis of the new book that it was "filled with derision, contempt and disgust for the Jewish religion, the J e w i s h faith and practices and for its p r a c t i t i o n e r s .

' But maybe the.honeymoon is ovcri Evert Walter Hickel, the Secretary of the Interior, was grumbling about the California oil slick. He went so far as to intimate- maybe the oil companies ought to pay for the desescratlonthey wreak on fowl, fish; animal and public. In fact, he .suggested maybe they use some of the money they save on their depletion allowance to repair the damage. My guess is that before the century ends, the government will no longer allow oil companies the huge tax advantage they now enjoy because they are "depleting" their resources. After all, a cop doesn't get a break on his tax because he's

be directed at that end. But maybe Nixon is on the right, track. Let us hope so. In the 1930s I knew a Democrat who was a postmaster. He had earned this political plum through hard and dedicated work for his party in fer.ociously Republican Monmouth County. As Postmaster, however, he was putting in an 8hour day. Some plum! Now, I understand, a postmaster puts in anywhere from 8 to 12 hours everyday. I am not sure the Republicans will find the meritorious personnel to staff this office from the mail carriers themselves. But if they hear the pitter-patter of thumping feet, then, like all other honeymoons, political patronage has ended, too.

to —expect. •/ Whereas Israeli Arabs had a natural increase of 38.3 per.thousand, the "new" Arabs increased by only 24 per thousand/ At the same time there has been a steady, not dramatic, but perceptible emigration of Arabs, either to other Arab states, or to lands overseas. These are not refugees. More and more Arabs are coming to the voluntary and independent conclusion that they would like to try their fortunes elsewhere, away from the tensions of the Middle East. The Arab, infant mortality rate is double that of the Jews —but on the other hand their death rate is slightly lower. One reason is the higher incidence of deaths in Israel due to traffic and industrial accidents. This is one of the prices we pay for a technologically advanced civilization. Since the War of Liberation 6,000 Jews have been killed in road accidents, and 320,000 injured, of whom 36,000 were left cripples and invalids. This is a far greater toll inflicted upon ourselves than in all our conflicts with the Arabs since Independence. There is one'source of jropulation increase on which Israel cannot rely. Illegitimate births account for seven per cent of all births in England; six per/ cent in France; 13 per cent in Sweden; seven per cent in the United States—and 0.4 per cent in Israel. ' The total population figure for all areas governed by Israel today is 1,290,000 Arabs and 2,425,000 Jews, the latter constituting 64.66 per cent of the total. That percentage is the figure to look at next year.

Orthodox- Sfudents Shocked ys Sex Revoliftton By BEN GALLOB A group of young New York Jews from Orthodox backgrounds who enrolled in a secular university have reported that the expected intellectual challenge to their traditional religious beliefs has proved,to be much less a problem than the impact of the sexual revolution on campus. • Seventy-five such students, all from yeshiva or girls' seminary backgrounds, were asked to record their views about-a city college in New York where they are part-time students. Twenty. boys and 20 girls—responded to a questionnaire prepared by a member of the staff of the Jewish Observer, the findings were published in the periodical. Rabbi Yaacov Jacobs, Jewish Observer edi-. tor, said that while the responding students all attend the same college, the behavior of faculty members and students they found objectionable was probably duplicated in most American secular colleges. Rabbi Jacobs suggested that the findings, were to be viewed against the background of the "heated and exhaustive debate" among Orthodox Jews, on secular college studies, involving three stands. One is the view that college attendance is "an outright wrong" because it distracts from Torah study "and precents alien and harmful ideas and attitudes" to Orthodox youngsters. Another v i e w strongly favors a "pure" Torah education but holds that for most Orthodox young people "college training must bo accepted as a necessary evil." Finally there is the view that the ideal is producing young Jews who combine Torah values with a college education. t Shock and revulsion dominated the reports from the responding students. One of them wrote that "rather than plulosophical problems, I feel that the immorality present in much of the college material taught today" was the most important problem for Orthodox students nt secular colleges, a view generally ;endorsed by the 40 students. One reported that much of the assigned material in reading courses "discusses such topics as sex, normal and abnormal, without any limitations." In a hygiene course, the teacher regularly started and finished his lecture with the discussion of'human reproduction, and he "continuously ridiculed the girls and some of the boys who were embarrassed by his indecent remarks and the pictures which he showed." •Another Orthodox student cited an example of his English course in which the instructor

argued that it was essential for man "to escape the conventional way of thought, to explore the realms of more exotic behavior." The report declared that it was almost impossible for any student to avoid the impact of "the new morality: Flower power, hippie revolt, drug experimentation, sexual freedom, rejection of all restraint." Some of the Orthodox students suggested that the college atmosphere simply reflected "all the manifestations of a. demoralized society" and that they could live with it. But most "reflected the feeling that to the religious student the college scene represents a new shocking dimension of direct exposure to immorality and anti-religiosity." One of the Orthodox students asserted that "a college student cannot help becoming immune to obscenity. He cannot help accepting secular values and judgments. Most of all, he cannot avoid breathing polluted air when he is at the very source of pollution." •• The replies indicated that the students felt they could usually—though not always—resist intellectually but that there was a more baffling problem—the social one. Even though very few of the Orthodox students indicated participation in the social life of the campus, student government and clubs, the pressure to conform—in manner or speech, behavior, dress, and habits—was described as powerful. One student wrote (hat the "broad-mindedness" of non-Jewish and non-Orthodox Jewish students "is at first disconcerting, shocking and then, as with everything else, this becomes the norm, and there, is the fever-present danger that he will come to, accept these norms as his own. After the first few months, he is no longer appalled." . . A girl student wrote that "sooner or later" every girl student, must face the problem of socializing. Where is the student to spend free time between classes—"alone in the library?" This is all right for. a while, she added, but one needs friends. "Are we supposed to just sit in school oblivious of our surroundings—be alone —unsociable—talk to no one—where do you draw the line? When the boys ask you out, it's too late—so what is the answer?" Another Orthodox girl wrote that "sometimes we few religious girls walk around college and say, what are we doing here? I used to think that I went to college to set an example and to show other people that you can be Orthodox and modern, and that this might convince Jewish kids to become Orthodox. But now I s e e j was grossly oversimplifying the situation." '

Between You and Me By BORIS SMOLAR

Ever since the controversial boolc "Portnoy's Complaint" by Philip Roth appeared, I have received inquiries from various Jewish quarters. The questions posed were: Why are national Jewish organizations—which are alweys sensitive about protecting the Jewish image before the public—completely silent on Roth's book in which Jews are reviled? Would they tolerate the "philosophies" about Jews expressed by Roth If the same were expressed by a non-Jewish author? Would they remain silent if the caricatured image of Jewish parents were pre— sented in a book written by a non-Jew? Would they not brand such a book as stimulating antiJewish hatred? black children can be taught in ' There is anger in these questions, and.there is little under-, the same classroom.

The Jewish Quiz Box QUESTION: Why are benedictions worded in the present tense ("Who nringest forth bread from the earth," "Who redcemest IsraelTZ ANSWER: From a practical viewpbint this is grammatically correct even when referring to the past. Habbinic commentaries, however, indicate that there is a great lesson to be learned from this preferred usage of tense. It shows that the world is in a constant and continuing process of creation. It further shows that the Almighty has not simply given something to man and then lost interest in him. Rather, he is constantly concerned with man's sustenance. Furthermore, it should be noted that while to man's limited intellect time is divided into past, present and future, to the Almighty these three are all one. He "is, was and will be" all at tho same time. QUESTION: Why is (litre no special benediction recited before performing an act of charity such as there is before performing other religious acts? ANSWER: A number of reasons are advanced. Some claim that in order for a benediction to be recited before the performance of a religious act, there must be a spirit of gladness before the performance of the act. Apparently, some people give charity without the proper spirit. Thus, there is no benediction. Others claim that the reason for the omission of the benediction is that an act of charity depends upon more than one person (the giver and the-receiver). In such a case, the giver is never sure that his gift will be accepted. Should it not bo accepted/the blessing may be recited in vain. Still others claim that the benediction is omitted because when it comes to charity, there should be no delay between one's will and one's action even to the extent of pronouncing a benediction lest the delay may, in some cases, make the gift arrive tod late, and this gift may be one of a critical nature, sometimes being a matter of life and death. .

Rouse, Principal of Notre Dame Academy; Bennett Hornstein, Attorney, Member of the Nebras-

The meeting is open to all interested members of tho community, free of charge and without reservations. Those at- -tending will be able to ask questions of Uie panel or maka brief comments . • '" ' Mr. Riekes pointed out that bills are pending before tho Legislature on this subject and that Nebraskans will probably again be asked to vote on this issue. "In addition," said Mr. Riekes, "the Jewish community will eventually be asked to voice their views in this area, and we should . be informed about the problems and issues involved."
