B’nai B’rith President Announces Five-point Program of Activity

Philip Klutznick, newly-elected president of the British, oldest and largest fraternal organization in the United States, today made known a five-point program which would guide his administration of the organization. Mr. Klutznick told a press conference that his administration would:

1. Support President Eisenhower’s peace offensive; 2. Support a program designed to bring peace and security to the Middle East; 3. Work to stamp out the vestiges of Communism in the United States; 4. Preserve the autonomy of the British by rejecting any attempt to control or dominate it by other agencies in Jewish life in this country; 5. Work with and join with all other human rights and educational agencies to stimulate interest and participation of citizens everywhere in community activity.
