Maclver Report Fight Rages On:
AJ Committee Slams Maclver Study,
Urges Members Fight Study Okay;
Says Maclver Lacks Jewish Knowledge
NEW YORK CITY (AJP) The American Jewish Committee,
■one of the defense agencies criticized in the Maclver Report, has
sent a lengthy denunciation of the Report to its top members and
urged them to carry the fight to Jewish Welfare Fund officials.
While the AJC has refrained
thus far from taking a public
stand on the report by Prof. Rob
ert M. Maclver, it sent out the
attack to its members with a
promise that another critical
statement would also be sent to
them later.
Jacob Blaustein, president, said
in a letter with the statement,
that Committee members, parti
cularly in cities represented in
the Large Cities Budgeting Con
ference, “could be of great help”
by bringing the Committee’s
statement to the attention of fund
officials. The Large Cities* Bud
geting Conference, which includes
a dozen of the largest welfare
funds, took part with the National
Community Relations Advisory
Council in setting up the ten
month-long Maclver study.
The Committee analysis, which
followed on the heels of an earlier
critical study by the ADL con
taining attacks upon the Maclver
Report, accused Dr. Maclver of
lack of knowledge of the Jewish
community and charged he had
failed “to recognize that an agen
cy like the American Jewish
Committee is rooted in—and ex
ists because of—an ideology, and
that our philosophy influences
everything our agency does.”
The analysis criticized the Mac
lver Report section which would
give the Jewish War Veterans and
the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations a much larger role

than they now have.
“The report fails to make clear
how perpipheral the JWV and the
UAHO are to the community by
relations field,” the Committee
study said.
The Committee accused Dr.
t
Maclver of failure to “define skill
and competence in community re
lations work” and that “as a re
sult of this failure, he made rec
ommendations in his written re
port which he himself later found
it necessary to qualify exten
sively.”
The Committee expressed fear
about a Maclver proposal that the
federations and welfare funds
contribute to a central fund for
the community relations field,
this fund to be apportioned to the
national defense agencies.
The Committee said that this
plan would cut down amounts
now available for such work be
cause local officials of the nation
al agencies would lose the “incen
tive which they now have for tak
ing leadership in the campaigns—
namely an opportunity to influ
ence the allocation of the funds
they have been helpful in rais
ing.”
Earlier an NCRAC spokesman
had attacked critics of the Mac
lver Report as unfair.
