The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and B’nai B’rith have called upon President Ford and Democratic Presidential candidate Jimmy Carter to reschedules their third television debate Oct. 22 because it falls on a Friday night. The two organizations have also called on Sen. Robert Dole, Republican Vice-Presidential candidate, and Sen; Walter Mondale, Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate to reschedules their Oct. 15 television debate because it falls both on a Friday night and on the final days of Succoth. The Presidents Conference and B’nai B’rith express disappointment that the two debates are scheduled at a time when a large segment of the electorate cannot tune in to watch the event.
