ADL Survey Shows College Students Less
Prejudiced Than General Public
(Continued from Page 6)
were more anti-Semitic, students
at Far Western colleges less pre
judiced, although Jewish enroll
ment in both areas is small.
Researchers could find no ap
preciable differences in attitudes
toward Jews between men and
co-eds or between Catholics and
Protestant students.
The interviewers also presented
two hypothetical situations in
volving anti-Semitic discrimina
tion on the campus. The first des
cribed two equally well qualified
candidates, a Jew and a Gentile,
for election to the board of the
college newspaper. Non-Jewish
seniors were asked if they had
■‘•any preference.”
Fifty-seven per cent said “no.”
Seventeen per cent definitely
“preferred” the Gentile; another
19 per cent adopted the same at
titude if election of the Jew
“meant that Jewish students
would become a majority of the
board.” One per cent preferred
the Jewish candidate.
The second situation: “Suppose
six of the eleven best football
players in college happened to
be Jews. Do you think it would
be a good idea to have them all
play on the varsity?
The answers: Yes —49 per cent;

The contrast in the amount of
anti-Jewish discrimination in the
two test situations shows that the
degree of prejudice of the college
senior depends on how closely the
situation touches him. The low
figure for the football incident is
an indication both of the profes
sionalization of college athletics—
the identification of players as
gladiators rather than as fellow
students—and of the strong desire
of under-graduates to see their
team win.
In the case of the college editor,
intercollegiate competition is not
a factor, but “prestige” on the
campus is. So the senior’s pre
judice is accentuated, the report
observes.

Appeal of the American Jewish
Committee and the Anti-Defama

Police Disperse Hundreds of
Communists Demonstrating
Against Jewish Agency
TEL AVIV, (JTA) Hundreds
of Communists demonstrated here
this week in an attempt to raid
the offices of the Jewish Agency
in protest against the alleged ex
clusion of Communists from the
new settlements. The demon
strators were dispersed by the po
lice.
Eight Communists who were
arrested during the week-end af
ter clashing with police units
were released on bail this week.
A report appearing in the official
organ of the Jewish Democratic
Committee of Rumania, “Unirea,”
was ridiculed today by all Tel A
vivians. The report, completely
unfounded, said that Tewfik Tubi,
Arab Communist leader and
member of the Knesset was a
mong those arrested over the
weekend. Tubi attended the reg
ular session of the Israel parlia
ment.
