Collapse of Columbians Does Not Mean End of Anti-semitism in South, A.d.l. Aide Says

The virtual collapse of the Columbians here does not mean the end of organized anti-Semitism in the South, Alexander F, Miller, Southeastern Regional Director of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, warned in a statement made here today.

He predicted the rise in the near future of similar lunatic fringe organizations that would capitalize on the controversy raised by this group. Expressing his thanks for the remarkable unity and self-discipline of the Atlanta Jewish community before a flood of unwarranted and provoking attacks, Miller singled out the Public Relations Committee of the Atlanta Community Council and its chairman, Julian V. Boelu for special praise. The efforts of the Jewish War Veterans under the leadership of Commander Arthur Weiss and Past Commander Paul Ginsberg, were also lauded.
