Louis Stokes (D.O.), one of the 13 Black members of tRe House, assailed the Federal Communications Commission this week for ruling that a radio' station and a television station in Atlanta would violate the Federal Communications ' Act if they refused to tran¬ smit "White supremacist advertisements" and "anti- Semitic tripe" by J. B.^ Stoner, a candidate for US Senator in the Democratic primary in Georgia. Stoner .finished fifth with 5 percent of the votes. In 1948 he campaigned on a platform of death for those practicing Judaism. Television station WSB and radio station WPLO broadcast paid ad¬ vertisements asking Georgians to vote for "White racist J. B. Stoner" in the primary. Mayor Sam Massell, the Anti- 'Defamation League of B'nai - B'rith and- the National Association for the Ad¬ vancement of Colored People all protested the paid advertisements on the two stations. A three-man FCC panel refused on Aug. 3 to allow the two stations to reject the advertisements. The Atlanta branch of the NAACP had asked the FCC to inform the two stations they would not violate Section 315 of the Com' munications Act of 1934 by refusing to air the ad- vertiserrients. Stoner is an Atlanta attorney who has a . long association with anti- Negro and anti-Jewish' causes. In a statement to the JTA, Stokes said that "while I fully agree that the principle of free speech demands the strongest enforcement in a democratic, society, I sup¬ port the Supreme Court dictum that the liberty does not extend to yelling 'fire' in a crowded theater." He contended that Stoner, "freely airing his racist and anti-Semitic tripe over the media,.was yelling 'fire' in the overcrowded arena of prejudice and race hatred. Our violent' past has been a : witness to the fact that words like Stoner's arc highly in- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 5) David Derrow Is Reelected At Center Annual Meeting David Derrow was -reelected President of the Jewish Center at the Annual Meeting held Monday, July 31.

Israel As Political Football: Says Jews Concerned With Need For Change And All Important Issues WASHINGTON (JTA) — The newly appointed staff director of the Jewish Af¬ fairs Committee of the McGovern - for - President campaign said this week that;' the committee's effort to win Jewish votes for Sen. George McGovern (D.S.D.) would be based on appeals to the traditional Jewish liberal, approach to the need for change, which he said still exists in this; .country. • Richard M. Cohen of New York, associate executive director of- the American Jewish Congress, stressed in an interview that the Jewish Affairs Committee would not have differing approaches for various groups of prospective Jewish voters, whether they were inner, city, suburban, Orthodox, Conservative or^Reform.' The premise of the campaign would be, he said,'" that all Jews are concerned with the need^ for "positive, productive and progressive change.''.Cohen' stressed that he was on leave.without pay from the AJCpngress and that he had accepted McGovern's offer ofa staff post as an individual, and not as a representative of the' AJCongress. He declared that "this country sorely needs change and Sen. McGovern represents the man who can bring about such change." He said that the majority of American Jews would not cast their votes solely on Jewish issues. He said American Jews "are con- " cerned with issues of interest to all Americans, as well as those of specific Jewish interest." He cited crime in the streets, the quota versus the merit system, Israel and Soviet Jewry as among major issues of concern to American Jews. He added that McGovern "will shortly issue a statement con¬ demning any kind of quota system that discriminates on the basis'of religion, race or ethnic origin." Cohen also said that "we in the McGovern campaign- deplore the action of Republican forces, making. Israel a political football in the 1972 campaign." "Since -the founding of Israel in 1948," lie added, ."our country's commitment to the survival and security of the Jewish State has been en¬ dorsed by both political parties and ratified by the American people. We believe it is a disservice to the American political system, to United States foreign policy and to Israel to turn a bipartisan issue into a political one." "Crisis In Marriage?" To Be Beth Jacob 14th REW Theme Beth Jacob Synagogue has announced plans for Its Fourteenth Annual Religious Emphasis Week program between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This, out¬ standing event'which is'held each year gives members of the Congregation and Columbus Jewish Com¬ munity an .opportunity to hear and meet nationally and internationally known scholars and ' rabbis to discuss topics of great religious value and concern. Irvin Flox, Adult Education Institute Chairman of Beth Jacob Congregation, has selected the theme for this year as "Crisis in Marriage?" Many religious leaders and con¬ temporary sociologists feel that the issue of "Crisis in Marriage" stands as one of the foremost problems facing the Jewish home of today.. Such' questions as "The future of the marriage institution in America,'; "The high rate of divorce," the problems of "Fidelity, Permissiveness" "The Drop Out Husband" and "The (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) Culminating the. research of a two year Task Force on Jewish Identity, reflecting discussions in cities across the continent, the Assembly meeting in Pittsburgh last fall of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds adopted recom¬ mendations that .called for creative innovations that will encourage American Jewry to enhance the quality of Jewish life. Thus the Institute For Jewish Life came into being and Dr. Jick chosen as its first Director. His ap¬ pearance in Columbus for 'the Annual Meeting of the UJFC will be one of only a .few speaking engagements ' he has accepted for the year. Dr. Jick is on leave from his position as Director of the Lpwn' Graduate Center for Contemporary* Jewish Studies" at Brandeis University where he also is an Associate Professor of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies.

The measure,.proposed by Sen. Henry M. Japkson (D. Wash.) calls for "unlimited" credit, but a Jackson aide said that "in practical terms" it guarantees authorization of up to $300 million in aid. The provision is expected-to be approved without difficulty in both Houses of Congress: MEXICO CITY (WNS) —A delegation representing the Central Jewish Committee and the Mexican Zionist Federation met with the First Secretary of the'British Embassy to protest the projected opening of a Palestinian Information Office in London. (In Johannesburg, a joing delegation of the South African Jewish Board of Deouties and the South African Zionist Federation protested to the British Ambassador that "the activities of such an office will only serve to promote and incite.further wanton acts of murder, terrorism and hijacking against innocent men, wom.en and children of all nationalities and religious persuasion, not only in Israel but in many other countries, and on aircraft.") JERUSALEM (WNS) — As quiet continued along Israel's border on the second anniversary of the Middle East cease-fire, Foreign Minister Abba Eban told foreign newsmen that Israel had no reason "to doubt the prudence and efficacy" of its decision to "respond alternatively" to the U.S. initiative which led to the cease-fire. Eban also stated that both Israel and the U.S. had "expressed mutual satisfaction" over.the ouster of Soviet military advisors from Egypt. He also said he could see no reason for a change in U.S. Middle East policy after the Presidential elections stating there was no reason why "something that is going well" would be changed "just because of a date on the calendar."
