The conclusions reached were made after months of study and investigation of similar Jewish centers in vari¬ ous cities throughout the U. S. It is the sincere hope of the Jew¬ ish Center board, that the fol- lov'lng rate schedule will appeal lo all Jewish men, women and children, as it gives them the "last word" in facilities for a well rounded-out recrealiiinal. cultural and social program. In arriving at basic policies and a memliership rale slruclure the commiltee look into consid¬ eration the fact that one of the major aims nf the Center is to develop a sen.se nf affiliallon and helnnging- In Ihe .lewish community. This can be done best by pro¬ viding opportunities for shar¬ ing and a sense of participallnn in the total Center program. Such a sharing implies lioth privileges and responsibilities for those in the communily who are definitely willing to identify themselves with the Center, both for purposes of Jewish group as¬ sociation ahd as an expression nf the organized Jewish conl- munlly. Such Identlficalion can i*l0me through a membership re¬ lationship which involves re- spon.slbiiities for electing a gov¬ erning board, deciding upon fiollcy. and carrying out all of the responsibilities in carrying nut the day to day conduct of the Center. The basic membership fee is baserl upon the assumption that every educational project In America which is operated on adequate 'standards Involves community financing on a de¬ ficit basis, not only because it must make provision for those who cannot afford, but primari¬ ly because adequately conduct¬ ed educalionai projects are very SO JEWS GRADUATE FROM U, 8.

The A.J.(:., founded 32 years ago by the lale Dr. Stephen S.

The statement of principles, made public by A.J.C, president Rabbi Irving Miller, added: "Since the essence of both the Amer'lcan ideal and the Jewish tradition Is the sacredness of the individual, we can pursue these objectives only ihrough the free democratic process, and must re¬ ject every form of totalitarian¬ ism as Imperilling the survival of the Jewish people and the freedom of mankind. These ob¬ jectives flow out of our joint responsibilities as Americans and as Jews. In their realization, our heritage of American demo¬ cracy and the tradition of Juda¬ ism win achieve fulfillment." The statement listed the follow¬ ing goals of the A.J.C. "1. Assurance and extension ol the fundamental freedoms of man through elimination of all forms ol* political, social and economic discrimination on grounds of race, color, religion, ancestry, of nationai origin.
