The AJPA also decided to launch a project for standardizing the transliteration of Hebrew terms used frequently in the English- language Jewish press. Among the highlights ot the con¬ vention was an address by 'Philip Slomovitz. editor-publisher of the Jewish News in Detroit, who took exception to a survey published by B'nai B'rith, characterizing the Jewish press as "dull" and as "dis- proportinnately" devoted to social news.

Mayor M. E. Sensenbrenner read a proclamation expressing the con¬ cern ot the Columbus community. "What the world needs," he said, "is not a gigantic leap into space, but a gigantic leap into brother¬ hood." The Right Rev. Msgr. Fracnis J. Schwendman. representing Bishop John J. Carberry and 170,000 Catholics, stated that he was in complete agreement with the seven point petition. The Rev. W. Donald Pendell, di¬ rector of communication of the Ohio Council of Churches, said that we must guard against the danger of hypocrisy. We must not only con¬ demn Soviet anti-semitism, but condemn it in our own country, state and town. Dr. John H.

Sheinberg, National Director of the Jewish War Veterans. Sheinberg was thrilled by the ybuth involvement in the cause.

"It's a part ot us that dies with them," he said, referring to our brother Jews. Unless we in this country do something, the Russian Jew faces extinction in 10 lo 15 years.
