TEHERAN (ZINS) Hani al-Hassan, a
linent leader of the PLO, said in an interview that the
government of Iran has made "the liberation of
?alem from Israeli occupation one of its foremost
ous and moral commitments."
I He said that the Iranian revolution had created a
jr movement around Israel that would be completed
l "a fundamental change takes place in Turkey soon."
IHASSAN SAID that much of the exchange betweenj
[Ayatollah and Arafat concerned the creation of a!
mon strategy and a common approach against Israel.
PLO leader also said that the Iranian revolution had
Egypt's President Sadat "totally isolated in the
Jn now, and the Egyptian people are very near
It."
In preparation for the Inaugural Dinner, Tampa Jewish Federation Campaign leadership

With CBS news commentator
Marvin Kalb billed as the
featured speaker, the Tampa
Jewish Federation-UJA cam-
paign will hold its Inaugural
Dinner this Saturday at 7 p.m. at
the Host International Hotel.
Michael L. Levine, campaign
chairman, has reported that over
250 people who have made a
minimum commitment of $1,000
will be in attendance.
The Tampa Jewish Federation-
UJA inaugural dinner is the
traditional opening for the annual
effort to commit the Tampa
Jewish community to support the
needs of the Jewish people on a
local, national and international
scope.
A SPECIAL reception with
Kalb is being held for those
contributing $5,000 or more.
Levine said, "We are looking
for the leadership in our com-
munity to attend the Kalb dinner
and set the tone for this year's
campaign. Our goal is $1 million,
a realistic figure set by leaders in
our community to meet the needs
of the Tampa Jewish community
and help meet the needs of world-
wide Jewry."
What makes the 1980 cam-
paign even more critical, Levine
said, is the inflationary
economics at home and in Israel
"that is making real human
needs more pressing that ever."
Dinner arrangements are under
the chairmanship of Mrs. Herbert
(Nellye) Friedman and Sue
Sutker. Sandy Turkel is in charge
of the special reception for Kalb.
PARTICIPATING in the
porgram will be Dick Turkel,
campaign vice chairman; Judith
Rosenkranz, Women's Division
campaign chairman; Ben
Greenbaum, president, Tampa
Jewish Federation: and Michael
Levine, campaign chairman.
Serving as the hosts and
hostesses for the evening will be:
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Kass, Dr.
and Mrs. Robert Goldstein, Mr.
and Mrs. Barry Berg, Mr. and
Mrs. Joel Karpay, Dr. and Mrs.
Barry Kaufman, Mr. and Mrs.
John Osterweil, Mr. and Mrs.
Paul Pershes, Mr. and Mrs.
Marshall Linsky, Mr. and Mrs.
Al Wagner, Mr. and Mrs. Meyer
Frank.
Also, Mr. and Mrs. Doug

Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Sherman,
Dr. and Mrs. Paul R. Levine and
Mr. and Mrs. Les Barnett.
Although there have been
several leadership functions and
the Women's Division
Pacesetters Luncheon preceding
the Kalb dinner, the Inaugural
Dinner has traditionally served
as the starting point for the
community-wide phase of the
drive.
Through Kalb, Tampans will
hear a veteran journalist, a man
with personal and professional
knowledge of the world-wide
conditions which Jews must
recognize and acknowledge exist
and make renewed efforts each
year to improve.
Improvement can only come
through the funds generated by
the hundreds of volunteers who
run the community Federation-
UJA campaigns, Levine
reminded Floridian readers.

Word from Argentina
It is no surprise that Argentina is one of the
nations to say it has no real intention of stopping its
sale of grain to the Soviet Union as President Carter
has requested.
Despite all their promises to structure a modem
democracy, the strongmen who run Argentina
continue to offer a haven of safety for old Nazis. They
brand as "subversive" innocent men and women who
suddenly "disappear" and operate concentration
camps as reported, for example, in our front page
news story last week by Alejandro Deutsch, released
after nine months from his hell in a Cordoba prison.
Deutsch still doesn't know why he was im-
prisoned. Dr. Luis Avila, a Paterson, N.J., physician
today, who comes from Cordoba, and who is active in
the Argentine Information Service Center, has
reported that more than 15,000 persons have sud-
denly been lost track of in Argentina since the
present ruling junta took over in March, 1976.
And the Council on Hemispheric Affairs a year
ago reported an estimated 20,000 residents of
Argentina, twice the size of Texas and luxuriating in
natural resources, are "victims of human rights
violations."
These are the desaparecidos, unacknowledged
by the government headed by President Gen. Jorge
Rafael Videla, but mourned by relatives who know
by heart the litany of Argentinan horrors: kid-
nappings for profit and with government approval,
imprisonment, torture, detention by house arrest,
class hatred. And, of course, denial of habeas corpus.
Let the Grain Flow
The Argentine regime responds with wild
gesticulations about its liberal newspapers, La
Prensa and La Nation.
(But there is no mention made anywhere of
another newspaper, La Opinion, published by Jacobo
Tim merman, who was arrested in April, 1977 and
held for a year in prison, and then placed under house
arrest until April, 1979, when finally he received a
visa to Israel.
Of what possible interest to this dictatorship can
President Carter's plea for a grain embargo to the
Soviet Union be? Obviously, none. Between op-
pressors of humanity, whether in Buenos Aires or
Moscow, the quality of oppression can hardly matter.
Communist or Fascist, it is all the same. Let the
grain flow.________________________________
Tackling the Wrong Problem
Simone Veil, the French Jewish survivor of
Auschwitz, who is now president of the Council of
Europe, noted while on a recent visit to Washington
that every time there is a crisis in the world "Israel's
situation becomes more difficult." She said she
believes this is "why Israel hesitates to go swiftly
into concessions."
Graphic evidence for Ms. Veil's argument can be
seen in the efforts of some segments of the United
States government and the media to use the current
crises in Iran and Afghanistan to urge American
pressure on Israel to create a Palestinian state. Their
claim is that without a settlement of the Palestinian
issue President Carter cannot achieve the stability in
the Middle East that the U.S. is seeking.
No one questions the importance of the Pales-
tinian problem. That is why Israel is participating in
negotiations with Egypt and the U.S. on autonomy.
But to see the Palestinian issue as the central
problem in the Middle East, a region that is torn by
internal and external disputes, is ridiculous.
Why is it so easily forgotten that the Palestinian
problem is in large measure caused by the refusal of
the Arab states to integrate the Palestinians because
they wanted to use them as a political weapon
against Israel? Apparently Ms. Veil does not forget.

The President's War of WoA
OTHER MEN on Capitol Hill
were incensed when the word
came back that Clark Clifford
said in India that a Soviet move
on the Persian Gulf would mean
war.
Clifford hd gone to India to
calm fears there about our
sudden decision to arm Pakistan.
The decision was not meant, he
explained, to do anything other
than to prepare the Pakistanis
against the potent Soviet threat
to them and also to Iran.

THE ANSWER is that
President Carter did. Further-

Number 6
By Near East Report
'A curious feature of the
Soviet government," wrote
columnist Russell Baker a
few years ago, 'is its utter
inability to be embar-
rassed." The Russians
proved that with their
invasion of Afghanistan,
and again when Tass, the
official Soviet news agency,
said President Carter's
critical reaction to the
invasion "breaks all records
of hypocrisy and lies."
One reason the Russians do
such wretched things with such
impunity is their cold calculation
of what is in their interest, what
kind of opposition they will
encounter, and what it will cost
them. They obviously calculated
that the opposition and the cost
involved in turning Afghanistan
into a satellite were tolerable.
ACCORDING TO the in
terpretation of some political
commentators, one reason the
Russians were able to act so
boldly in Afghanistan can be seen
in President Carter's initial
response. "The action of the
Soviets has made a more
dramatic change in my opinion of
what the Soviets' ultimate goals
are than anything they've done in
the previous time I've been in
office," Carter said.
The Soviets have three aims
which they hope their domination
of Afghanistan will further. The
first is the age-old goal of a warm
water port on the Indian Ocean.
Second and more ominous is a
recent Soviet needoil Early in
this decade the Soviet Union will
become a net oil importer. The
reverse side of the Soviets' need
for oil is their desire to deny oil to
their western adversaries.
It is essential to understand
that the Soviet move into
Afghanistan does not im-
mediately achieve any of these
goals. It gets the Russians closer
to the warm water and closer to
the oil, but to complete their task
they need to take over at least
one more country. Pakistan is a
possibility, but Iran is a far more
likely target.
AS THE shah's regime was
falling a year ago, most in-
telligence forecasts said his
ouster would be followed by
period of protracted instability
that would help no one but the
Soviet Union. Nothing that has
happened in the last year un-
dermines that theory, and many
believe that the Russians have
played far more than the
peripheral role attributed to them
in the shah's fall and the current
instability The Iranian Com-
munist Party is probably the
most cohesive political force in
the country.
Over the past generation, at
one time or another, the Russians
have had strong influence in
Egypt. Somalia. South Yemen,
Ethiopia. Syria and Iraq. But
they have alwaya failed to
achieve their ultimate!

Pacesetters Luncheon Is a Big Success
Providing a capsule analysis of Washington
and world affairs as they affect the global Jewish
community, Atlanta's Gail Evans kept a Tampa
Jewish Federation Pacesetters Division Lun-
cheon audience enthralled last week at the home
of Pacesetters co-chairman Marlene Linick.
Evans, a founding partner of Global Research
Services and well-known for her knowledge and
understanding of affairs in the Middle East, was
a substitute for Sylvia Hassenfeld. president of
UJA's National Women's Division, who was ill
and unable to attend.
Close to 40 people attended the luncheon, a
fund-raising project of the Women's Division of
the Tampa Jewish Federation-UJA 1980 Cam-
paign.
In a well-received address, Mrs. Evans noted
that in time of crisis, the cost of supporting
programs for Jewish survival is more easily
understood. Yet. "world Jewry is in the most

They care for them
Brthem."
ONE of the ad-
attending a small,
private school. Hillel only goes
from grades one through eight,
with each grade having one class
except for the fourth, which has
two.
Another way the closeness is
formed is through the common
bond of religion; all students
attend daily classes in both
Hebrew and Judaic studies. Thus
their religion becomes an integral
part of their everyday life.
A sloganeer once said that the
family who prays together stays
together, and the Hillel "family"
reinforces that belief.
Every day the students begin
their morning by participating in
a half-hour prayer service. The
classes rotate in conducting the
services, with different students
acting as the rabbi and cantor.
AND EVERY FRIDAY, the
students assemble in the chapel
of Rodeph Sholom synagogue,
where most of Hillel's classes are
held, to attend a Shabbat lunch.
"The students eat bv
families," Principal Doughty
explains. "Each table seats 10
people, and one from each class is
represented, along with an in-
structor. Then we switch the
grouping every eight weeks."
Each Shabbat lunch begins
with a prayer, and Mrs. Doughty
says that the students anticipate
the special nature of the occasion
by getting more dressed up on
Fridays than they normally do.
BY RECITING the blessings
over the candles, breaking the
traditional "challah" together
and singing Jewish songs, they
rejoice in their religion as part of
their regular routine, in-
corporating it into their lives.
Their daily instruction in both
Hebrew and Judaic studies sets
the tone for this constant ex-
posure to Judaism, its traditions
and beliefs.
While the emphasis on Jewish
training is a strong selling point
for attending Hillel, the school
stands on its own as a superior
institution of learning, according
to Principal Doughty:
"WE OFFER personalized
learning that public schools are
unable to offer, and the primary
reason that most of our students
attend Hillel is because their
parents want them to participate
in a good general studies
program."
In this area, Hillel School
specializes in what Mrs. Doughty
refers to as "accommodative
learning, meeting the individual
child's needs."
What this means is that
students are offered individual
instruction in subjects such as
the language arts, math, and
Hebrew, if they demonstrate that
they can go at a faster pace than
their classmates. Conversely,
those who are having difficulty in
a subject are given special at-
tention.
One asset of being a small
school is that class size can be

Hillel School Open House
The Hillel School of Tampa
opened 10 years ago with 29
students enrolled in first through
fourth grades. Today, 129
students attend classes in grades
one through eight.
The curriculum for students at
each grade level consists of the
traditional General Studies
courses plus a Judaic Studies
program which includes the
study of Hebrew language,
prayer, Bible, Jewish history, the
State of Israel and Jewish
holidays.
Hillel presently occupies
classrooms at Congregation
Rodeph Sholom. Maximum class
size is limited to 20 students.
Enrollment is open for the 1980-
81 school year.
An open house for parents of
prospective students is being
held on Thursday,Feb. 14, at 10
a.m. at the school. Kay Doughty,
principal of the school, will give a
brief overview of the school.
Those attending will tour the
facilities and visit classrooms. A
question and answer period will
follow. Parents of current
students will also be present to
answer questions.
kept to a controllable number; no
class at Hillel contains more than
20 students, and even at that
number, Mrs. Doughty would
like to see classes reduced to
groups of 15 as they were until
three years ago.
"BUT IT WOULD cost
$40,000 more to maintain that
size, and we just can't afford it,"
she explains. As it now stands,
the school has run out of space in
its facilities at Congregation
Rodeph Sholom and now has a
classroom and a workroom in a
converted gas station across from
the synagogue. Negotiations are
currently underway for a new,
larger facility for Hillel.
Undaunted by space
limitations, the school continues
its ambitious projects, such as a
special Passover seder that Mrs.
Doughty hopes will include
Tampa Mayor Bob Martinez and
United States Senator Richard
Stone among the invited guests.
Hillel selects three Jewish
holidays each year to focus on in
a special way, and Passover is
one of this year's selections.
A CONSTANT source of fuel
for Kay Doughty and her Hillel
faculty is the deep concern and
interest of the parents:
"One of the plusses of being
here is the support of the parents.
There's never been a time that
I' v e called a parent to say that we
need to see him or her that I've
been put off; the parents are
usually here the same day. That's
just not true of other schools."
The only Jewish day school in
the area, Hillel recently
i celebrated its 10th birthday. The
school has obviously come a long
way from its start 10 years ago,
with only 29 students, three
general studies teachers, and two
Judaic studies faculty members.
THE CURRENT Hillel staff
consists of 10 teachers in the
general studies division and four
in the Judaic section.
But even with this expansion,
the students who attend Hillel
School still operate as a family.
The size may have expanded, but
the love and care remain a vital
part of life at Hillel.

VEIL, who survivied Ausch-

French Minister of Health before

Parliament president, spoke
about Israel following questions
from the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency's reporter, who noted
that in her previous statements
on this Washington visit this
week, including her National
Press Club address and in a
question period there, the Arab-
Israeli situation was not
discussed.
In her response. Veil said

Middle East is in crisis.
Israel's situation becomes more
difficult." She said that Israel's
military, economic and even
psychological situations always
have greater difficulties when
conditions are unstable."
"In mv personal opinion,
that's why Israel hesitates to go
swiftly into concessions, she
said. She added that those
responsible for Israel's security
always find it difficult to enter
mto peate agreements or a treaty
when world changes" are taking
place.
"Israel perhaps would be
readier to make concessions if
Western Europe or the United
Nations could guarantee Israel's
security." she said. "The country
can't take risks when the
situation is unsure.
TUB EVENTS in Afghanistan
and Iran "make the situation
more serious still," she said.
Iran's situation has "already
made an economic impact" on
Israel since Israel received much
of its oil from Iran. Jews in Iran,
she added, are "not directly
threatened but their situation is
precarious."

Conference Focuses on Soviet Resettlement
LESLIE AIDMAN
>unday. Jan. 27, a^>

about that many other Floridians
from he Miami and Broward
County areas attended an all day
on Soviet Jewish
resettlement at the Host Hotel
The conference came close to
being thwarted due to intense fog
which delayed most of the in
coming flights to Tampa in-
cluding that of one of the two
keynote speakers.
The morning was spent with
registration and the keynote
session The afternoon, following
lunch, was devoted to various
workshops which featured
discussions on the many difficult
intricacies that occur inresettling
Soviet refugees.
During the keynote session
there were two speakers
Edwin Shapiro, president of
HI AS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society) and Bernard Manekin.
chairman of the Council of Jewish
Federations Soviet Resettlement
Program Committee
Shapiro said that his iden-
tification with HI AS goes back
50 years to when his mother was
a client of this agencv. On March
23. HI AS will celebrate its 100th
birthday. Since its inception.
HI AS has brought over four
million refugees to safety. From
the day he took office as
president last March 14.
Shapiro's involvement and
dedication to the Russian
resettlement programs all over,
have kept him on the run.
'stlAPIRO has been invited to
the White House on a number of
ms. including for the
Begin Sadat peace signing, and
frequently is in consultation with
President Carter on the problems
and needs of Russian reset-
tlement He stated that President
Carter is constantly aware of and
concerned with the I'nited
States' commitments to these

communities resouro
committee is also
much concerned with finding
a ays of encouraging more
Russians to resettle in Israel
iwhere they are so much better
equipped to handle the needs of
the refugee) than in the United
States, said Shapiro.
Shapiro also traced both the
physical and emotional route that
these Russians travel on their
journey of immigration; what
factors (often quite insignificant)
dominate in a refugee's decision
making processes of whether to
settle in the USA or in Israel:
and he briefly outlined the
tremendous emotional ad-
justment that the refugee un-
dergoes.
He closed his address by
stating that just in the last few
weeks. Washington has approved
a program that will primarily
deal in issuing letters of in-
vitations from the United States
to first degree relatives of
refugees who have already settled
here.
Bernard Manekin stressed that
we must not forget the totality of
what resettlement is all about.
He stated that we have been
given a great opportunity which
H as denied past generations.
He said that for the last 60
rs, Russians have not been
able to practice Judaism, and in
addition, they have been told how
to think, how to live, and how to
do
BIT DESPITE all of this, he
said, the various Russian
resettlement programs have

Begin Pushes for
Boycott of Olympics
By YITZHAK SHARGIL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Prime Minister Menachem
Begin said that he would ask his Cabinet to recommend
that Israel boycott the Olympic Games in Moscow and
press for their transfer to a site outside the Soviet Union.
He made his statement to reporters following a 40-minute
meeting in Jerusalem with U.S. Ambassador Samuel
Lewis.
BEGIN SAID he understood President Carter's
position on the Olympic Games and in fact supported it.
But he pointed out that the decisions on this issue are
made by the Olympic committees and governments can
only make recommendations. He said he would propose
that his government recommend a boycott to the Israel
Olympic Committee.
Carter announced Sunday that he had informed the
U.S. Olympic Committee that he would not support
sending the American team to Moscow unless the Soviets
pulled their forces out of Afghanistan.

There will be time ... yet for a

... In a minute, there is time
For decisions and revisions which
a minute will reverse
Reckoned in these terms, the
Soviets are bound to take the
President "s latest Olympic
threat'- as yet another exercise in
meaninglessness. The threat is an
important decision that has been
trivialized by our prior expec-
tation that, somewhere along the
line, in a barrage of Sunday
school sermons. Mr. Carter will
give us, and the Soviets there-
fore, an escape hatch from our
seemingly earnest intent.
And already, the hatch is
opening. The Soviet fait accompli
in Afghanistan is an act to which
we have by now acclimated our-
selves at the same time that the
Soviet representative to the
International Olympic Com-
mittee in Paris pronounces pious
utterances about its being incon-
ceifublc that the Games should
take place in Moscow this
summer without an American
presence. The semantic war
grinds to a halt in salvos of vague
verbiage.
THAT IS why Clark Clifford
found himself victimized in India.
As a former Secretary of Defense,
he attempted to define the U.S.
position on the need for a strong
Pakistan, and that India should
see nothing threatening to its
own interest in this a state-
ment of clarification we were well
advised to have him make in light
of India's unprecedented
criticism of the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan.
But the "Carter Doctrine" was
part of that Hill of verbiage
intended for home consumption
at a particular moment a
gesture, not a pronouncement of
intent the war of words now
grinding to a halt.
How could Clifford know? He
doesn't speak in the homespun
accents of Carter country, the
land of the semantic lotus-eaters
for whom the Persian Gulf and
the Summer Olympics are nought
but Sweet soliloquies.

Weizman
Knocks Kennedy
By GIL SEDAN
JERU8ALEM (JTA) -
Defense Minister ESser Weizman
said here that he was sure that
Sen. Edward Kennedy (I).,
Mass.) will not be elected
President of the United States.
Weizman was asked on a
television interview to explain his
comments, during his recent
Washington visit, supporting
President Carter's reelection bid.
He explained that whereas
Carter made a significant con-
tribution to the peace treaty be-
tween Israel and Egypt, Kennedy
had not even bothered to say "a
good word" throughout the
Camp David negotiations and
until the actual signing of the
peace treaty.
ONLY NOW that he has
entered the Presidential race.
Weizman noted, does he make
favorable comments about Israel.
Weizman was asked: "Are you
aware that Sen. Kennedy may be
the President of the U.S.?" He
retorted: "I am aware that he will
not be the President of the U.S."
Weizman, whose outspoken
views have been the subject of
growing criticism here on the
basis that he is voicing opinions
that can be interpreted as inter-
ference in internal American
affairs, offered similar opinions

headquarters yieiaeu a quantity
of military equipment and
propaganda material.
Interior Minister Gerhart
Baum said the group, known as
the Wehrsportsgruppe. mas-
queraded as a sports organization
while it planned to overthrow the
democratic system by force.
THE Wehrsportsgruppe, said
to have 400 members, was
described as the largest neo-Nazi
militant organization in West
Germany. According to Baum,
its sell-styled fuehrer, 42-year-old
Karl-Heinz Hoffmann, hoped to
achieve Nazi goals. The organiza-
tion was founded seven years ago
and a- active among youth in
'ia\ aria and Baden-Wuertem-
berg.
Police who searched its head-
quarters in a castle near Nurem-
berg found a quantity of small
arms and ammunition and an
armored vehicle used for training.
Additional arms and am-
munition was found in the homes
of 32 members raided by police
Wednesday night. Hoffman may
be brought to trial.
IN ANOTHER development,
three young members of the neo-
Nazi Kampfgruppe Priem were
arrested in Freiburg, south
Germany. According to police,
the youths, aged 15. 17 and 20
admitted to vandalizing and
desecrating a Jewish cemetery in
Breisgaustadt last month.
Police said the youths had anti-
Semitic publications and
swastikas.

These two men testified during
the morning session at this
second of ten official platform
hearings. The hearings are open
to the public and will receive
testimony from concerned
citizens, representatives of
national organizations, the
academic community, and elected
officials.
JOHN TOWER, senior U.S.
Senator from Texas, presided
over the hearing. Also on the
panel were Bill Brock, National
Republican Committee chair-
man; Mary Crisp, National
Republican Committee co-
chairman: Kichard Roudebush,
former director of the Veteran's
Administration; Betty Easley,
Florida state representative; Bill
Young, U.S. representative;
Richard Kellv, U.S. represen-
tative; E. Clay Shaw. Mayor of
Port Lauderdale; Mary Grizzle,
Florida state senator; and John
T. Ware, Florida state senator.
THERE WAS MUCH debate
about what the United States
policy in the Middle East should
be. Simon said the international
community has already arrived
at a consensus policy which we
should adopt. He listed five
parts:
Israeli withdrawal to June 4,
1967 boundaries;
Palestinian self-
determination in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip;
Recognition of the Palestine
Liberation Organization as the
legitimate political represen-
tative of the Palestinians;
e The right of return of
Palestinian refugees;
e The right of all national
entities in the region to a secure
existence.
E. Clay Shaw said any
discussion of Israel's withdrawal
to its 1967 borders or new set-
tlements should come from face-
to-face meetings with the states
involved.
"As Israel has made a com-
mitment to democracy and
Freedom, so the United States
would provide assistance in that
area." Kelly said.
Kelly, speaking to Simon,
asked if the Islamic nations wish
to choose between the Soviets
and the United States. Kelly then
said it was time to start doing
things to indicate peace and
friendship.
OFFENDED BY remarks of
Rep. Kelly, who had recently
returned from a trip to Israel,
Simon reminded the panel that he
was born in America and is an
American citizen.
Braman spoke of a U.S. need
for naval and air bases in the
Middle East. Since Israel
possesses some of the most
modern air bases in the world,
some of which will be returned to
Egypt in 1982, he urged that the
Republican Platform ask Israel
and Egypt to immediately lease
these bases to the U.S. on a 99-
year basis.
In answer to a question from
Kelly, Braman said it is his
judgement that the Israeli
government is committed to
support the U.S. policy in the
Middle East. As Braman left the
platform he emphasized the
importance of keeping Israel's
borders friendly.
REPUBLICANS feel it is time
to reach out into the community
and take the pulse of the
American people. The focus of
this hearing was fiscal and
monetary, foreign policy, and
defense issues.
Hearings such as this one will
held throughout the country in
the next six months. These will
provide the Republican Party
with input to identifying key
issues and concerns of the people
at the grass-roots level.
