Reward (Continued from Page One) and Paul's Caholic Church in Miami reflects the extremely serious community-wide nature of the bombing attacks." the Committee said. "Such attempted physical destruction of a Church occurring on the approach to the Christian religious holy day of Christmas emphasizes the at tempted infringement of the Constitutional right of freedom of religion by the dynamiters." the Committee pointed out. "The Committee has consistently pointed out that the bombing and dynamiting attacks on the houses of worship constitute a grave in vasion on freedom of religion and. if continued unchecked, threaten a breakdown of law and order in the community. “It is the hope that the law en forcement agencies now cooper ating together on the case will make early arrests of the persons responsible for the crimes so that the heretofore unchecked acts of violence may be stopped. This must be done if the strain on this community resulting from the dynamitings and bombings is to be removecfc” The Greater Miami Coordinat ing Committee Against Bombings is comprised of representatives of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, Jewish War Veter ans, Greater Miami Rabbinical Association, and Greater Miami Synagogue Council, in coopera tion with the Greater Miami Ministerial Association, Greater Miami Council of Churches, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, National Associa tion for the Advancement of Colored People, and many addi tional local civic groups.

PHONE 2-7428 PLAIN TALK (Continued from Page One) as will be an exemplar unto all the nations. I like to think of Israel as a land that will fulfill the social teaching of the Jewish prophets, including the Jewish prophet who is Jesus to the Christians. \ And may that anti-Zionist American Council for Judaism come around to the same pleas urable experience of changing its mind in the presence of facts. But I do protest against being called an Israeli by the Chica goan. I do not regard my admi ration for Israel an emotion that means I feel a dual national iden tity. As an American, I deeply resent the suggestion of some Zionists that we in America and Jews in other western lands are people in exile, a scattered rem nant that should be gathered in. My grandchildren number seven and my great hope for them derives from the fact that they are of America. Their great grandfather is the one who start ed building for them a Zion here and all they are and all I hope for them has to do with his youthful wisdom in settling here. He, at 95, likes to say: "I was a smart young man to come to America but maybe I should say that God was good in giving me this wisdom." May I suggest to tne archae logical Chicagoan that rather than looking sorrowfully into my state of mind, he examine his own as well as the static minds of his fellow-members in the American Council for Judaism— a hardening of arteries. I myself can rejoice in the possession of a mind that is able to change, even at my time of life. Intellectual integrity doesn’t mean that an honest mind is like the stupid rock that refuses to be moved. I take pride unto myself that my mind has moved since 1944. To the mind of the Anti-Zionist American Council for Judaism I comment that it try to reconcile itself to the idea that Israel is really n o embarrassment t o American Jews; that they have a right to be proud of it as kins men of people who have done so well toward producing a State that shall be good and great; that, anyway, they should, as human beings, be proud of other human beings who try so hard to build a good, new life. It’s all right for the American Council to keep on campaigning for the idea that Jews in Amer ica are Americans only, that they owe no national loyalty to any other land. I stand with the Council on that. But let its zeal stop there. Some years ago, for a short time, I belonged to the American Council for Judaism but resign ed. Maybe I could join it again if it divested itself of the sus picion that somehow Israel is an enemy to the well-being of American Jews; if it applied it self exclusively to the idea that American Jews can be nothing other than Jews of, by and for America, with no national loyal ties anywhere else; if at the same time it accorded full respect to Israel as a country worthy of the hope and prayer of all the world. Well, I have pleaded to she in dictment brought against me by the Chicago member of the American Council for Judaism and I hope I stand acquitted of the accusation that I have an un stable mind which should retire from the function of the column ist. I’ll have another column next week. THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY To Tour U. S. On Rockefeller Grant iwlreli SHHHHg&x ; jaSu&SB DR. CURT WORMANN Doctor Curt Wormann, Direc tor of Israel’s Jewish National and Hebrew University Library in Jerusalem, has just arrived for an extended tour of the Uni ted States after spending three weeks in England as the guest of the British Council. The trip was made possible by a grant-in-aid from the Rockefeller Foundation. During the next four months, he will visit the libraries and library schools of principal American cities and universities to study new methods and techniques in library administration. When fin ished with the itinerary which the State Department arranged in cooperation with the American Library Association, he hopes to have established closer working* ties with the libraries of this country, particularly in the field of science. BRITISH JEWS CONCERNED OVER ATTACKS ON BOYS IN LONDON AREA LONDON, (JTA) The Board of Deputies of British Jews’ De fense Committee last week re ported that “there was no evi dence” that a number of attacks on Jewish boys in the Hackney district of London in recent weeks “were exclusively of an anti-Semitic or fascist character.” The Board’s report, however, pointed out that a number of agencies are concerned with the problem and that there is a pro posal under consideration to call, under non-Jewish auspices, a conference of youth leaders to discuss the problem. The report also stated that the Mayor of the borough and its representative in Parliament had been interviewed and were deeply concerned by the problem, as were the police authorities. DAMAGE SET AT MORE THAN 1L.3,000.000 At its latest weekly meeting, the Israel Cabinet studied reports showing that damage caused by the recent floods is estimated at more than 1L.3,000,000 ($8,400,- 000). Half this sum covers the damage caused to tents, huts, in stallations and moveable prop erty plus immediate expenditures for rescue work, and the rest con sists of damage to government property.
