Jwv Assails Hatchett Appointment As ‘affront’ to All Americans

The Jewish War Veterans of the United States, at its convention here, called the appointment of John F. Hatchett to head New York University’s Afro-American Student Center “an affront to Americans, black and white, who strive to erase bigotry from our national existence.” The sharply worded resolution adopted by the veterans’ group also criticized former Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg for what it termed a “casual whitewash” of the appointment. Mr. Goldberg had advised NYU to stand by the appointment.
