Soviet Union Again Imposes Bans On Baking Of Matzoh NEW YORK (JTA)-Passover was celebrated throughout the free world this week even in the Soviet Union where severe restrictions were again placed on baking matzoh. Thousands of American Jewish 'men and women on military duty celebrated the holiday in Army, Navy, Air Force and other installations around the world through arrangements made by the Jewish Welfare Board. Facilities were provided for Jewish personnel on duty in 600 military installations aboard, as well as for their families, aboard ships and troop transports, at missile bases and tracking stations and for patients in Veterans Administration hospitals in this country. Also included in JWB's worldwide Passover arrangements were a number of American Jewish civilians serving with the Peace Corps in Nepal, Tanzania, Tunisia, Pakistan, Liberia, and Ethiopia and with State Department missions in Thialand and India. Passover services, sedarim on base, in synagogues, Jewish Community Centers and other community facilities, home hospitality, and at many installations, special Passover meals for the entire eight days of the holidays were organized in the United States and at some 70 overseas points by the 270 full and part-time Jewish chaplains, regional JWB consultants, community Armed Services Committee and Veterans Committees and Jewish Community Centers. In 10 European countries where matzoh and other Passover supplies were either unavailable or in short supply, the Joint Distribution Committee furnished 665,000 pounds of matzoh and other Passover needs. Charles H. Jordan, JDC's director-general for Europe, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in Geneva that the shipments, largest in 13 years, would make possible full observance of the Passover by 100,000 needy Jews. But while relative freedom from religious persecution was being enjoyed by Jews in most of the countries behind the Iron Curtain not only in Poland but also in Hungry Rumania, Czechoslovakia and Bulgaria—the anti-Jewish discriminations were pointed up especially during Passover for the Russian Jewish population. The American Jewish Conference on Soviet Jewry, comprising 24 national Jewish organizations, dealt with that subject in a special Pass- DR. NOVICE G. FAWCETT AND RABBI BENJAMIN KAHN AT HILLEL CELEBRATION Dr. Novice G. Fawcett, president of the Ohio State University, and Rabbi Benjamin M. Kahn, national director of B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundations, will speak at the 40th anniversary celebration of Hillel Foundation at Ohio State. The banquet, which will also honor Rabbi Harry Kaplan for 30 years of service as director of Hillel Foundation at Ohio State, will be held April 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the Edwin J. Schanfarber Memorial Building. Hillel Foundation at Ohio State is the second oldest chapter established by B'nai B'rith in the United States. Observance of its 40th anniversary and Rabbi Kaplan's 30th anniversary as director will launch an effort to organize alumni support to expand Hillel programs and services to a growing student body. An international figure in education. Dr. Novice G. Fawcett became the eighth president of The Ohio State University in 1956. He had previously distinguished himself through a quarter century of productive service in teaching and education administration-. President Fawcett was born in Ga,mbier, Ohio, and was reared on .his family's Knox County farm. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree "magna cum laude" from Kenyon College in 1931. Specializing in science and mathematics, he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa in his junior year. He was awarded the Master of Arts degree by Ohio State in 1937, after which he pursued additional studies at the university in education administration. Dr. Fawcett began his professional career in 1931 as a teacher of mathematics and science in the Gambier High School, and he later served successively as superintendent of schools in Gambier, Defiance, and Bexley, Ohio; as first assistant superintendent of the Akron Public Schools; and as superintendent of the Columbus Public Schools. In February, 1960, he was cited as "an outstanding exemplification of the meaning of American citizenship and -of human brotherhood" and presented with the Brotherhood Man-of-the-Year Award by Temple Israel in Columbus. Rabbi Benjamin M. Kahn, of Washington, D.C., national director of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundations, is a native of Lowell, Mass. A graduate of Harvard College in 1934 with the degree of A.B. magna cum laude", he prepared for the Rabbinate at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, simultaneously pursuing graduate studies in philosophy at Columbia University. In 1918 he was ordained and received the degree of Master of Hebrew Literature. In June, 1962, he was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters by Alfred University. From 1940 to 1959 Rabbi Kahn was director of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation at the Pennsylvania State University, except for the year 1944-45, when he went on leave to Montreal, Canada, to establish a new Foundation at McGill University. In September of 1959 he succee- (conflnued on page 4) over statement, issued by the chairman of the Conference steering committee, Label A. Katz. He is also national president of B'nai B'rith. The Conference statement was supplemented by a lengthy special report, entitled "The Soviet Assault on Passover," detailing the history of Soviet restrictions on matzoh from 1957 to 1965. Mr. Katz said: "As a result of official Soviet policy, the vast majority of Soviet Jews will not have matzoh again this year. This means that they are again forcibly deprived of the chief means of observing Passover properly. American Jewry protests this discriminatory deprivation with all the force at its command." Noting that, "consistent, systematic, worldwide protests" had apparently caused the Soviet Government to shift its policy on Passover observance, by making this year's ban on matzoh "less than total," Mr. Katz voiced gratification over this slight change in policy. But he noted that the change affects Jewish religious congregations in only three "showcase cities" — Moscow, Leningrad and Odessa. Even there, he pointed out, many difficulties have been put in the way of those Jews wanting matzoh, and the costs are "exorbitant." Dr. Novice G.
