He was 59. Rabbi Adler, one of Detroit's most prominent religious and civic'lea"ders, died 27 days after Kicnard Wishnetsky, 23, shot : him while he was conducting a Bar Mitzvah service at suburban Shaarey Zedek, one of the nation's largest synagogues. He never regained consciousness. Wishnetsky's second bullet hit the rabbi in the head and pushed bone fragments into his brain cavity. Doctors operated twice and kept constant watch, but Rabbi Adler remained io a coma. He began slipping Tuesday night. Wishnetsky, who shot himself after firing four bullets at the rabbi, died Feb. 16, four days after he climbed to the syna- --AP YVlrephott Rabbi Adler Food, Heaping And Good,, Soothes The Irate Student Reports of demonstrations by college students are much exaggerated and the cause of 1he few that do occur is likely to be far less romantic than the impression given by the mass news media, a McGraw-Hill magazine says it has found. When the publication College and University Business asked the nation's college presidents about the furor on their campuses, 88 per cent replied all was peace and quiet. And of the remainder, the solution appeared to be the old rule--if you want to keep them quiet, give mem good food. For the cause of most demonstrations was not the war in Viet Nam, free love, free speech or academic freedom. Most complaints were about the food service. Tucsonian Wounded Again Army Pfc. John Marsh Walls, 20, of Tucson, has been wounded a second time in Viet Nam fighting and is recovering in a hospital in the Philippines. A paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division, Walls was shot in both legs and one arm during recent heavy combat. He wrote his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Walls, 124 W. 5th St., that another soldier saved his life by carrying him to safety. Last October, Walls received the Purple Heart after falling into a trap where several pun- gee sticks pierced his foot. The former Tucson High School graduate joined the Army two years ago. 9.5 Million Auto Sales Seen In 1966 SAN FRANCISCO-lffl-Auto sales in the United States will pass 9.5 million this year, says an official of the Ford Motor ;co.

Bankruptcy Plea FUed By Rider Clifford Jack Branham, one of the top winners in this year's Tucson Rodeo, has filed a petition for bankruptcy with the U.S. District Court. Branham, of 101 W. Pastime Road, listed debts at $27,041 and assets at $1,975. The petition noted that Branham's $2,000 winnings for team roping in the rodeo were split in hah* with with another man,who put up his entry fee. gogue pulpit, read a speech telling the congregation its members "make me ashamed I am a Jew," and shot Rabbi Adler in the arm. As the Rabbi pushed a 13- year-old boy from the line of fire Wishnetsky shot him in the head. The rabbi collapsed on the pulpit as Wishnetsky shot himself and members of the congregation screamed. The parents, grandmother and sister of Wishnetsky, a Phi Beta Kappa, witnessed the shootings. Rabbi Adler was spiritual leader of more than 6,000 Jews, members of Shaarey Zedek, a congregation more than 100 years old which moved three years ago into a modern $4.5 million synagogue in suburban Southfield, Mich. Rabbi Adler is survived by his wife, Goldie; a daughter, Mrs. Eli Benstein, and three grandchildren. Mrs. Adler expressed sympathy when Wishnetsky ' died. "Were I with them (Wishnet- sky's parents), I would press their hands," she said. Rabbi Adler was a strong spokesman for civil rights, a former national chairman of the B'nai B'rith commission on adult Jewish education and chairman since its founding in 1957 of the United Auto Workers Union's public review board. He was active in the local round table of Catholics, Protestants and Jews. Occasionally he preached in Protestant churches and urged members of other faiths to attend Sharrey Zedek, which means "Gates of Righteousness." Spokesmen at Sinai Hospital said his death was due to complications of his prolonged coma. Members of his immediate family were present in the hospital when he died.
