A How do we answer this general attack on almost All facets of our communal life falsely and outrageously implying that we Are a pitiable Cluster of humanity rejected by non jews and voluntarily insulating ourselves from outside jewish life the charges would be amusing in their grotesque inaccuracy if they were not of so serious a nature.

Our Homes Are scattered about the City not huddled in a jewish enclave and we have excellent relationships with our neighbors. Quot an especially serious criticism of the Post s summary of the chapter on Muncie in tale of ten cities is that by sensational izing the contents through Banner front Page location and unbalanced selection of material for Lead paragraphs you gave the impression that the social attitudes actions and contributions of Muncie jews and their relationships with non jews. Are atypical a and for the worse.
