Every effort will also be made to provide a vehicle'for comment by members, of the community who desire to express their point of view." By E. L. Wasserman Vote For Survival It would seem natural to assume that the average Jewish vote goes to the pro-Israel or pro-Jewish candi- date. Sadly, this is an erroneous assumption Most Greater Seattle Jewish leaders and organization profes- sionals however, have in recent weeks expressed strong favorable opinions about the senator and congressman, whom we should vote for during the coming elections. Most Jewish voters in our community are aware that the security of Israel is somehow connected with the survival of Judaism. These Jews deserve the right to know what candidates are pro,Israel and pro-Jewish.  Senator Henry Jackson and Congressman Thomas Pelly, both candidates for election this fall, deserve the Jewish vote.., their records prove it, most of our Jew- ish Community leaders and professionals back them, and according to the editorial opinions of this writer, Jackson and Pelly are the safest bet for Israel and Jews in the diaspora. Let's not pull any punches. The Transcript has been accused of giving an unwarranted amount of space to "our" two candidates In fact we've been criti- czzed plead grlt;P?ltbeulol;mogS'e eUrgeg. ?!tn le?n e. rag. As far as the space being unwarranted . . . well that, s another kettle of chicken soup. On the "souo" , -- . ,, 1, charge the Transcript s detractors are way out m 1Jt field. (dead wrong) The space required for Pelly and Jackson articles is very much warranted, and for a very simple reason. THIS HAPPENS TO BE A JEWISH NEWSPAPER and HENRY AND THOMAS HAPPEN TO BE PRO-ISRAEL AND PRO-JEWISH. When asked about Israel and Judaism, both politi- cans give it to you straight. They don't profess to be concerned as Jews but as Americans. Senator Jackson and Congressman Pelly believe that if Israel and her people are engulfed by the Arab nations, then a part of America would die too. These two candidates don't profess to have a "mystical love" for Jews (as some politicians do) but as American leaders they do have a genuine love for a heroic and lonely nation that stands steadfast against terrifying odds . . . a young nation whose survival means the survival of every Jew on the face of the earth. Thanks P-I, Times At times national influential newspapers across the United States ladel out their own peculiar brand of unfounded "observations opinions and reflections and not the facts. The National Observer, published by Dow Jones & Co., who also publish the Wall Street Journal, recently hit a new low in morality, by creating and in- venting vicious anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist issues. The Observer's libelous misrepresentations clearly showed their own apparent anti-Semitism and bias against Is- rael and American Jewry. They exercised a reckless disregard of their duties and reponsibilities as a news- paper. ,lust a few of the many false impressions created by Jews Not Chosen...Jesus Not Jew Israeli Mayors Stripped Naked JERUSALEM, July delegation of Israeli m who attended the Congress 0 the International Federation 0 Twin Cities in Leningrad laS week reported that some 0 them were stripped naked bY Soviet authorities who searchea their persons and their baggag e before they were permitted to leave the Soviet Union.

The only redeeming aspect of their trip to Russia was Se mayors' attendance at Saturday morning services at the Lenin" grad Synagogue." Rights Party Asks Mass Killing Of Jews, Blacks Says Times Writer LOUISVILLE, Ky., (JTA)--A call for the mass killing of Ne- groes and Jews was sounded at the recent convention of the National States Rights Party at Newport, Ky. and was greeted by cheers from the audience of 200, some of whom "leaped to their feet applauding enthusias- tically," Louisville Times staff writer Jim Renneisen reported. The speaker was Newman Britton of Decatur, Ark. and the session he addressed was pri- vate. Newsmen and television cameras were excluded. Mr. Renneisen's report was based on tape recordings and accounts of delegates. Earlier speakers called for the repatriation of blacks to Africa and sending their "Jewish friends" with them, but Britton  urged a blood bath. "The blood will flow from every Jew in Anglo-Saxondom," he shouted. "It seemed to be what most of his audience want- ed to hear," Mr. Renneisen said. The National States Rights Party has been identified as the political arm of the Ku Klux Klan. In addition to Britton, the convention was addressed, in public session, by J. B. Stoner, national chairman and the par- ty's candidate for governor of Georgia. "Stoner's public speech was replete with racial slurs against Negroes and Jews but it did not approach the viru- lence of the speeches delivered by Britton and officers of the organization, Mr. Renneisen said. Britton blamed the country's ills on the white men's "error" in misconstruing the command- ment "thou shalt not kill." He claimed that Moses only meant that "White brother shall not Radar Proves Egyptian Lie France has set up in Lebanon a huge, ultra-modern radar sta- tion capable of covering the en- tire eastern Mediterranean and as far south as the Sinai, the French weekly, "Nouvel Obser- vateur" reported this week. The publication said the sta- tion, which it said is staffed by French technicians, enables French officials to follow Suez Canal air battles daily. The technicians, the paper reported claim that "the Israel- is minimize their losses by 12 per cent, the Egyptians by 60 (per cent)." To date, the report continued, Lebanese officials have refused to divulge their new radar-gained data to other Arab armies. ' them were that Jews are guilty of questionable alle- iance to America, that Jewish Organizations act as a ant for Israel, as foreign agents, to the disadvantage of the U.S. taxpayer, that Israel is so strong and the Jews here so powerful that by their vote they dictate and control American foreign policy, that Arab oil is more important to the U.S. than Israel, that Israel is not worth saving, and so on. Two fine examples of good American journalism however, can be found right here in Seattle. The Post Intelligencer and The Seattle Times. They verify and re-examine their positions before presenting "facts" and before editorializing. On behalf of the officers, members and executive directors of Jewish organizations in Greater Seattle, I say THANK YOU P-I and Times for your fair coverage and editorial comments on Israel and American Jewry. (example P-I editorial "Action for Israel" July 15.) kill white brother" but that it was permissible to kill "in d ence of our homes, our way 0 life." He said he regretted hi service in World War II whie he said was started by Jews to set white people to killing otla white people. He also deplo.ra the Nuremburg trials of Na war criminals Other speakers claimed tb students killed by NatiOg Guardsmen were Jews.

One delegate from Ne Jersey referred to that state a "Jew Jersey." Poll Shows W.
