Sen. Robert P. Griffin, Michigan Republican, today told the Senate, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of The Jewish News, of Detroit, that the newspaper “has carved for itself a permanent niche in the roll call of the fourth estate.”

In a Senate speech calling attention to the accomplishments of The Jewish News, the Senator said the newspaper “commands wide respect not only in the Detroit community, where it is published, but all across the country.” He said its success could be mainly attributed to “the untiring efforts of one man, Philip Slomovitz, who founded the newspaper in 1942. As the result of his efforts and leadership, The Jewish News has become an example and standard of excellence in the newspaper field.”
