Very sincerely yours, IRA Stein, President Inquiry Into Charges News Was "Slanted" Against Jews WASHINGTON (JTA) The Federal Communications Com mission this week ordered a full scale investigation of charges that G. A. Richai’ds, owner of radio stations KMPC, Los Angeles, WJR, Detroit and WGAR, Cleve land, ordered his newscasters tc “slant” news against Jews and others. Mr. Richards was ordered to appear before the Commission, which will hear the evidence. Earlier, he petitioned the F. C. C. to approve a transfer of voting control of his stock in an effort to avoid a public hearing on his qualifications to continue as a radio station licensee. Will Maslow, general counsel of the American Jewish Congress, hailed the decision as being of “tremendous significance” in pre serving the United States from “the poison of hatred deliberately spread by those who abuse the privilege of being licensed to utilize media of communication i like radio.” THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY Demonstrators and Police Clash In Front Os Israeli Parliament TEL AVIV (JTA)—A group of about 100 people demonstrated this week in front of the Israeli Parliament asking for “employ ment and bread,” and demanding that a delegation be received by the praesidium of the Parliament. While the main body was pre senting its demands, a group of the demonstrators forced open the gates of the Parliament com pelling the police to use force to expel them from the premises. As a result, some of the demon strators and policemen w r ere in jured. Regrets that “irresponsible par ties” found it necessary to dem onstrate in front of the Parlia ment was expressed by Joseph Sprinzak, Speaker of the Knesset, in opening this week’s session. He strongly condemned the forc ing of the gates while the prae sidium of the Knesset discussed the question of receiving a del egation of demonstrators. He praised the attitude of the police men and their patience in the face of provocation. Members of all political parties in the Knesset concurred with the speaker. Representatives of the Mapai and of the Agudas Israel said that “certain specific parties” are inciting some of the newly-arrived immigrants to stage demonstrations. Another demonstration for “work and bread”—this time held by about 300 war veterans —took place the next day. The demon strators reached Hakirya, the area in which all government offices are located, where they were halted by a strong police guard. A delegation was, how ever, admitted to the Labor Ministry.

ROOSEVELT AND THE CATHOLIC CHURCH (Continued from Page One) Vociferous Therefore, if she is “anti-Catholic,” she is also anti- Protestant and anti-Jewish. But everybody knows she is completely free of religious bias. If the Cardinal’s vociferousness was intended to cover up the weakness of his argument it had just the opposite effect. He gave out too much heat and too little light. Here is the sum and substance of it all: If church and synagogue want their own private parochial schools, that is their privilege; and if they are sincere enough in wanting them, they'll find the support for them among their own de nominational groups, instead of looking for a handout irom the citizens of all denominations.
