Preacher Invites Public
To Hear Speech on
Palestine
The Reverend Mr. Giles of the
Fellowship Bible Shop at 41st and
Pearl Streets has announced that
he will speak on the 35 years of
progress in Palestine, Sunday
evening at 7:45. Over 100 color
slides will be shown along with
the lecture showing the remarlj
lble development of Palestine
since 1918.
“Palestine, which a few years
ago was a land of religious signifi
cance only, is today the focal
point of both the Eastern and
Western world,” the Christian
minister said. During his talk Mr.
Giles will answer the burning
question: “To whom does Pales
tine belong?”
The public is cordially invited
to attend.
"Care" Urges Use Os
U. S. Surplus Foods
Paul Comly French, executive
lirector of CARE has prepared
for consideration by Congress
and the Administration a compre
lensive CARE report analyzing
;he United States farm surpluses
in terms of world needs and
\merican foreign policy. Mr.
French has already discussed the
report with Rep. Clifford Hope
(R., Kansas), chairman of the
House Agriculture Committee, to
which he expects to present it
formally.
Effective distribution of the
mounting stores of food America
cannot use, Mr. French declares,
“requires imaginative thinking
and utilization of all possible
factors.”
To that end, CARE proposes
that the Government channel the
surpluses abroad through private
American agencies, rather than
Federal bureaus. The program
could then be financed, CARE
says, by combining: savings in
storage fees; private negotiations
with recipient countries to pay as
nuch of the costs as they can;
;ome fund-raising among the
American people, as CARE has
>ften done, and direct Congres
sional appropriations to fill the
;ap, as part of the nation’s inter
lational friendship program.

AJC Seeks To Stop
Legalizing Wire Tapping
LETTER TO REP. REED CITES
SUPREME COURT JUSTICES'
CONDEMNATION OF THIS
PROCEDURE
The American'Jewish Congress
today (Monday, March 1) called
upon the House Judiciary Com
mittee to reject all bills that
would ease restraints on wire
tapping and on the use of evi
dence obtained from wiretapping.
At the same time, the AJCon
gress urged the House Committee
to outlaw all wiretaps.
fn citing the AJCongress’ op
position to the “dirty business” of
wiretapping, a phrase originated
by Supreme Court Justice Oliver
Wendell Holmes, Mr. Weisman
said: “It was ‘snooping’ that the
Constitutional fathers condemned
'.n the prohibition of unwarranted
searches and seizures. The fact
hat they did not think of wire
:apping does not change its na
ure; it is still ‘snooping.’ ”'
Protection of national security,
Mr. Weisman continued, “some
;imes warrants measures that
>therwise would not be justified.
3ut the United States Congress
;hould require of the Executive
Department a more convincing
showing of necessity than has yet
oeen given before it confers on
t this dangerous power of wire
sapping.
Jewish Groups Propose
Congressional Fair
Inquiry Procedures
WASHINGTON, (JTA) Rep
’esentatives of the American
rewish Committee, B’nai B’rith
Vnti-Defamation League and
\merican Jewish Congress testi
!ied last week before a House
tules Committee subcommittee
gainst unfair procedures of legis
ative investigating committees.
Col. Harold Riegelman, speak
ng for the American Jewish
Committee and the ADL, pro
posed a seven-point program of
uniform rules of fair conduct for
such committees to prevent “the
enduring injury .of innocent peo
ple.” For the American Jewish
Congress, Will Maslow, its gen
eral counsel, proposed a 14-page
model bill designed to regulate
the procedures of Congressional
investigating committees which,
according to Mr. Maslow, are
today operating with few, if any,
legal restraints and which are the
“one notorious exception to the
principle that ours is a govern
ment of laws, not men.”
Col. Riegelman’s rules would
provide that: the scope of a Con
gressional investigating commit
tee be clearly defined and the
body stay within these limits; the
full committee should exercise
control over use of testimony
taken in executive session; a wit
ness shall have the right to sub
mit a statement, question other
witnesses who have inpugned his
character or behavior and to in
troduce testimony in his own
behalf.

JUDGE MEIR STEINBRINK
WASHINGTON Testifying
for the American Jewish Com
mittee and the A. D. L., Justice
Meier Steinbrink of Brooklyn
last week told a Senate subcom
mittee on civil rights that fair
employment laws without en
forcement provisions have only
“a minimum of effect in elimi
nating discrimination.”
The retired jurist, who is hon
orary national chairman of the
League, appeared in support of
the Humprey-Ives bill for an en
forceable FEPC. The legislation is
now before the subcommittee of
the Senate Committee on Labor
and Public Welfare.
Justice Steinbrink cited the ex
perience of eight states which
have enforceable FEPC laws as
compared with four states whose
laws emphasize “education” but
provide no punitive measures, to
demonstrate the ineffectiveness
of a “toothless law.”
He criticized “the mistaken be
lief that education and legislation
are mutually exclusive adding:
“Modern educators emphasize the
importance of learning-by-doing
and legislators recognize, in other
areas, that laws can be a most
educational force.” He said that
those who argue “for education
and against legislation” are con
fusing prejudice with discrimina
tion.
“Prejudice is an attitude and,
as such, cannot be controlled by
law, though it can be influenced
through experiences induced by
law.” he told the subcommittee.
“But discrimination is an overt
act which is subject to observa
tion and control and prevention.”
