Nixon's press i?ecretary, Herbert G. Klein, repudiated his statement urging Amerl- ,cah Jews to vote for Nixon for the sake of Israel. The repudiation was announced in Los Angeles after the Klein statement caused a protest from three eminent Jewish leaders- Philip M. Klutznlck, Irving M. Engel, and Rabbi Israel Goldstein. Klein said: "The release referred to was Issued in Washington by an over-enthusiastic campaign worker, without the knowledge bf either myself or the Vlee-Presi- dent." Klein stated that Nixon "has consistently taken the posi¬ tion that there Is no such thing aa bloc voting in the United States. In addition, he has instructed his staff to avoid any appeals which would be directed toward a group with the implication that it would vote as a bloc." AOOORDINO TO Klein, Nixon "does not subscribe to the state¬ ments In the editorial" of the Is¬ raeli newspaper Yedlot Ahronot, which was quoted by Klein In his controversial statement warning that a Kennedy election victory might cause the destruction of Israel. Klutznlck, Engel and Rabbi Goldstein — telegraphed Nixon calling upon him to repudiate the Klein statement. They said: "This shocking appead for votes from Americans of the Jewish faith is an insult to our faith and to the political Integrity of American Jews without regard to political affiliation." KLEIN'S STATEMENT, sent Think About The New Jewish Home For The Aged out from Nixon.Lod^e campaign, headquarters here, said: "A plea to the people of Israel, calling for the support of the elec¬ tion of Vice President Richard Nixon, was the subject of an edi¬ torial in Yedioth Aehi'onoth, the oldest daily newspaper In Israel. The editorial went on to criticize Senator John Kennedy, as 'the Incarnation of American political Infantilism'." THE LAST PARAGRAPH of the Tel Aviv newspaper's editorial, according to Klein, "pointed up the fnct that there were 2,000,000 Jewish votes in the United States and, that for the sake of Israel, they should be cast for Vice Presi¬ dent Nixon." The Klein statement concluded: "The paper did not call for gov¬ ernmental endorsement of Nixon, but called for the people of the country to come forth 'as volun¬ teers for the cause of a Nixon- Lodge victory, by explaining that aid and comfort, via votes, to the Democratic Party could result in a policy of appeasement and the destruction of Israel." IN THEIR telegram to Nixon, the three Jewish leaders stated: "Your Press Secretary, Herbert G. Klein, in a statement Issued Oct. 10 from the Nixon-Lodge campaign headquarters, made references to a purported danger of the 'destruction of Israel' if Sen. Kennedy is elected. Klein's press message contained allega¬ tions that Israeli elements were seeking a pro-Nixon vote as a 'safeguard for Israel.'

Starting this Saturday night, Oct. 22 and running through Oct. 23, the delegates will hold business sessions, seminars, workshops and hear prominent speakers discuss 5-Year Old Is Saved By A Hurried Call This story happened to a member of this Jewish Community just a short time ago. The member—a child. Innocent, loveable, five years of age. Out of a clear blue sky, this child, and we are not mentioning names except when absolutely necessary, came crying to his mother. His "stomach" hurt and wouldn't mommy please make It better as mommy has always been able to' make everything else better In the past. But, as is too frequently the case, mommy could not make her baby's hurt better. SO MOMMY AND daddy took their child to their pediatrician. After lengthy examinations and tests, the child was admitted to the hospital. Another battery of tests, consultations, etc., followed and the surgeon who was called In for consultation decided that the results of the examinations warranted one course of action only—surgery. A major bowel disorder and dis¬ ease had been discovered and the child, was admitted to surgery for the next morning at 9. The routine blood groupings were made, the call to the hospital blood bank for the child's type of blood was and examine B'nai B'rlth activi¬ ties. HOSTING THE affair will be Columbus B'nai B'rlth Council, representing the four lodges and chapters of B'nai B'rlth In the Co¬ lumbus area; Including Buckeye Lodge, Candlelight Chapter, ZIon Chapter and Zion Lodge. In charge of arrangements for the host group is a committee headed by Sam Cohen of Buckeye Lodge. Other members of the committee are Sid Golden, Sol Shaman, Meyer Kurtz and Manny Sobel, Zion Lodge; Mrs, Al Beck¬ er, Mrs. Robert Bender, Mrs. Ike Cohen and Mrs. Joseph Schechter, Zion Chapter; Mrs. Milton Ben¬ der, Mrs. Daniel Goldsmith and Mrs. Ronald Sllverstein, Candle, light Chapter.

AT 8:30 AJtt. the call came up to the scrub room where the surg¬ eon was beginning to ready him self for surgery that the blood type was NOT available In th hospital's Blood Bank, Well, not so serious, and a call went out to the Red Cross Blood Bank to rush the child's type to the hospital. Again no luck — his tyl>e was not in stock. Quickly, calls to the hos¬ pitals In the area, at least four maybe five pints will be needed. Again, no luck. The parents of this child as you can well Imagine were frantic by this time; 9 a.m. had come and passed £ind his condition was wors¬ ening and surgery at once was Im¬ perative without delay. A RELATIVE of his, knowing that there is such a thing as a Jewish Community Blood Donor Council that comes calling, that comes begging, that comes plead¬ ing twice a year for the Jewish members of the community to give their blood, knew but little more. Who is the Jewish Com¬ munity Blood Donor Council? How does one get in touch with It? Another call by this relative to the Red Cross Blood Bank told him who the president of the Jewish Blood Don(>r Council was and a quick call and explanation of the facts to the president set the wheels in motion. It was now 10 a.m. The president of the Jewish Community Blood Donor Council left his place of business, drove the four miles to his home, went throiigh the list of hames of those members of the Jewiah Community who have the same type of blood, called seven past donors and sbc left their Jobs, [Continued on pago A) be announced next week.

Aaron Zacks ac cepted the chairmanship of the campaign committee and Robert Weller, Sr. tho chairmanship of the building committee. ZAOKS, WEILER and other leaders visited homes for the aged in various parts of the nation to learn as much ad possible about modem practices and facilities, so that planning for the Columbus home would enable it to meet current needs and future expan¬ sion. An Important milestone was reached when the site Immediately south of the Jewish Center waa selected and purchased. LAST NOVEMBER saw the kickoff meeting for the fund- raising' dVive.
