Decrease Reported In Anti-Semitism CLEVEI-AND, (JTA—A number of the nation's leading so¬ cial scientists weire disclosed to have agreed that there has been a massive reduction of overt anti-Semitism in the United States since the end of World War II, However, they disagreed over whether widespread hostility against Jews is likely to recur in this country^ These conclusions are reported in atbook-length study, "Jews i in the Mind of Amerilca," •"°''''' ^ $300^00 MARK REACHED AT DINNER At the annual congregational drive for Israel Bonds held Sunday at Tlfereth Israel the Cplunibua community Israel Bonds Campaign reached the $300,000 mark.

Banker Fights Anti-Semitism A leading banker revealed re¬ cently that his bank, the largest in Philadelphia and 19th in the country, was actively locking lor ;jowigh applicants, wliomigH ovontually qualify"for'top"Iwsi- tlons. John R. Bunting, Jr., executive vlco-proildent of the First Penn¬ sylvania Bonking and Trust Com¬ pany, made his statement at the annual dinner meeting of the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Jewish Committee at the Hotel Warwick. He said that his organization was.'seeking to eliminate "the subtle !aiiti-Jewish atmosphere that the young Jew¬ ish trainee thinks that he feels" in American commercial banks by bringing "a lea^ng Jewish figure into the powpr structure of our bank." ' THE ANNOIJN'OSiniENT came less than two months after the Americaii Jewish Committee'had charged that prejudice 'and dis¬ crimination, or attitudes survlv-' ing from discriminatory prac¬ tices in former years, were vto- tually excluding qualified Jews from executive positions in the nation's leading commercial Imnks. The First Pennsylvania's ac¬ tion is the first breakthrough in what is hoped will become a na¬ tionwide effort by commercial banks „ to examine and remove long-standing religious barriers in executive employment.

Published Jointly by Baisic Bool<s and the Committee's Ins¬ titute of Human Relations Press, the book includes a preface by Dr. John Slawson, the organiza¬ tion's executive vice-president, who presented the study to the board. SOME OP the scholars held that anti-Semitism like other group hatreds, is virtully a closed chat>ter in the United States and will not happen again. Others argued that, despite the recent improvement, the attitude of the non-JevWsh majority will continue . to alternate between acceptance and rejection of Jews because a conlsderable amount of latent anti-Semitism remains among the American people. The first of the study's two sections, prepared by Charles H. Stember, professor of sociology at Rutgers University, with con¬ tributions by Prof. Benjamin. B. «trtRlnger-(*=Hiiht«»'"Cdl»gg,'MeBd the trend of ^^titudes tpward Jews and Judaism from 1937- to 1963, as reflected hi natlonvWde public opinion polls sponsored by the AJC Committee and other groups. The Cojnmittee said it was the largest and most varied body of information ever as¬ sembled on the topic. ONE OF THE main findings is that overt anti-Semitism has de¬ clined sharply Since a peak in about 1944. Bqth hostile stereo¬ types and unwillingness to asso¬ ciate with Jews have shown a marked decline. Jews are in¬ creasingly seen as individuals rather than as a special kind of people with fixed qualities, An¬ other conclusion is that tiiore Americans view Jews as mem¬ bers of a religious group than they did a generation ago, and fewer hold the mistaken idea that Jews are a race. Latent Frejndlce Seen Remain¬ ing; Crisis OotUd BeaotlyajfeB'BlM Another finding is; iiiat some degree of latent and ingrained prejudice renudhs and could be activated by a major upheaval bir crisis in American sp(dety;.?nie study noted, however, that such postwar develbpnients as the es¬ tablishment of Israel, the Korean War, the atomic spy trials, the Sinai campaign and the intensi¬ fication of the civil rights move¬ ment have failed to do this.
