He said the pamphlet is not only offensive to Israel's Prime Minister but is "pure and simple anti-Semitic propa- ganda in the style of a certain great European power," an apparent reference to the Soviet Union. Erell charged that the PLO "is operating as the right hand of that great power and is receiving instruc. tions from it." Foreign Minister Saraiva Guerreiro warned the Arab League and Sawan that Brazilian law forbids offending heads of foreign .governments and that foreign diplomats are subject to expulsion for "breaking this law.

The celebration, another "first" for this year's winning campaign, will bring to Orlando as guest speaker the man who currently holds the top post in organized Jewry in the U.S., Theodore Mann, chairman of the Con- ference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organi- zations. Scheduled for Sat., Feb. 23 at 8:30 p.m. at the Congr. of Liberal Judaism, the campaign's closing celebra- tion will also honor the more than 200 volunteers whose "work gave this campaign the needed spark of person-to- person contact and caring," according to campaign chair- man, Sunny Mandell. Theodore Mann, an interna- tionally known leader in civil rights, is a native of Czechoslovakia who imi- grated to this country with his parents in 1929. He attended various yeshivot in New York and was graduated from Pennsylvania State University and Temple University School of Law. Mann, who lives in Wynnewood, Penn., is currently chairman of the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council Long active in the Jewish com- munity, he served as president of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Philadelphia. He has been president of the Greater Philadelphia Council of the American Jewish Congress, as well as national vice pres- ident of that organization. He also served as chairman of NJCRAC's Israel Task Force and is a member of the national board of HIAS. As an attorney, Mann has played a leading role in sev- eral major civil rights and church-state separation cases. He successfully argued cases involving the admissions policy of Girard College and challenges to Bible reading in the public schools. He has also argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in Lemon vs. Sloan, a case challenging public aid to parochial schools, and in several Sunday "blue law" cases.
