Prof. Edward Stern of the University of Michigan affirmed that the seminary is "a purely scientific gathering, being conducted, in accordance with usual' international scientific standards, and is in no way a 'provocative action,'" and that this characterization represents "a distortion of the character and purposes of the seminar," The un¬ precedented seminar, sponsored by an advisory board of eminent scientists, including eight j Nobel Laureates and the Tel Aviv University, was scheduled for July 1-5 in the Moscow home of the prominent Jewish scientist Alexander Voronel. The State Com¬ mittee for Science and Technology, the scientific arm of the Soviet Council of Ministers, has disowned the seminar and Soviet authorities have indicated that 'the seminar will be opposed. Dr. Stern, in pointing to the world famous scientists who constitute the International Board of Sponsors and Advisor, stated that this is "evidence of the international scientific community's support for the right of all scientists not only (CONTINUED ON PAGE 16) RABBI NATHAN ZELIZER Columbus Parks and Recreation Commission and his dedication to the im- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 10) Some of the people at the rally on May 19th.

According to Mrs. Sylvia Mellmah, Chairman of the Council Of Organizations, "It should be clearly stated that no event can be guaranteed a success without the effort and committment of the entire community. From i the women who i>;i manned telephones which informed their membership of the rally, to the leadership which contacted those public officials who spoke, one without the other insures- failure. It is the combination of professional staff, volunteer and community concern that insures a successful event.!' Mrs. Mellman went on to say that initially "There was some question as to the purpose and form of our protest. Some asked, why a rally?, The purpose of a public forum was at least two-fold.
