Frank Church said Saturday. In a swing across Ohio, the Idaho Democrat asked labor groups for their support in his bid for his party's presidential nomination. Church reiterated his theme that the key to bringing jobs back home was ending tax breaks on American business earnings abroad and removing government insurance on investments overseas. He was nearly drowned out by applause by rubber workers in Toledo when he promised he would work to repeal the rightto-work provisions of the TaftHartley law. He said that would halt the flow of jobs from states like Ohio to lower wage regions of the country.

Several Jewish leaders report a small, but definite, movement toward the former Georgia governor during recent weeks. ^Considerable coolness remains. But political, religious and organizational leaders who are in touch with large numbers of Jews in the Northeast predict that Carter will receive a substantial majority of Jewish votes if he becomes the Democratic presidential nominee. ". -CARTER HAS BEGUN to advertise heavily in Jewish publications. He is meeting with Jewish leaders in each primary state and is sending Jewish supporters from the South to plead his case in the populous Jewish community of New York. He and his people are attacking what they perceive as an anti-Southern bias ;among northern Jews, a fear (acknowledged by some Jews in New York) that his ievangelical christiantiy threatens Jews and an increasingly widespread impression that he is "fuzzy" on such issues as .the security of Israel. The Carter effort has been helped by the 'candidate's endorsement by Mayor Beame, the first Jewish mayor of New York, and by such New York Jewish lead' ers as Howard Samuels, the prominent . Democrat, and Morris B. Abram, the former president of Brandeis University and honorary president of the American Jewish Committee. Abram was reared in Georgia. In addition, some Jewish religious leaders have begun to warn Jews against harboring the same kind of religious bigotry that themselves have been subjected to. Carter is a Southern Baptist. A long memorandum on that question is being sent this weekend to about 800 Jewish leaders across the nation. It was written by Rabbi Marc H. Tannenbaum. director of national interreligious affairs for the American Jewish Committee in New York. · The memoramdum says. "It is no more accurate nor responsible to lump together all evangelicals into one group than it is to generalize about 'the Jews' or 'the Catholics.' " Carter and his campaign officials reportedly were shaken by his poor showing among Jewish voters in the Maryland and Michigan primaries. He had expected to pick up the Jewish support that had gone to Sen. Henry M. Jackson after Jackson stopped active campaigning. Instead, Jewish votes went to Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. of California and Rep. Morris K. Udall of Arizona by margins of 6 or 8 to I. THE ALARMED CARTER camp began systematically trying to change that. One of the main tools was the enthusiastic support of Carter by Jewish leaders in his home state of Georgia. Several Georgia Jews have high positions in his campaign. A letter signed by 29 Jewish leaders from Georgia has been sent to scores to Jewish leaders in Northern and Western cities, urging them to support Carter. The letter says Carter strongly supports Israel and the cause of Soviet Jews. It points out that he appointed several Jews to high office while he was governor of Georgia. It says he was "an honest, courageous, progressive governor." "It is for these reasons," the letter says, "that we are so troubled by reports of concern regarding Gov. Carter's religion from a few who do not know him. He is a religious, ethical person. But, this is reason for support, not concer." It concludes "Of all people, we as Jews should abhor those who would oppose any candidate because of his religion." A number of Northern Jews interviewed this week conceded having at least a slight fear of Carter because of his readiness to proclaim his Christian beliefs. One man said he feared that Carter, by continually talking of his religion, might encourage religious conformity and damage the cause of pluralism, Eli Evans, an author reared in North Carolina who has resided in New York for the last several years, said North Jews seemed more inclined than southern Jews to be suspicious of assertive Christians. Jews living in the South, he said, are acquainted with fundamentalist Christians and (knot fear them, in spite of groups like thr-Vu Klux Kian that cm to base their racism and anti-semitism on church doctrine.
