Elie Wiesel Address Available
At Hollywood Federation Office
A distinguished lecture by au-

United Jewish Appeal National
j Conference, has been published
; and is now available upon request.
The address, entitled "Against
Hespair," was delivered in Decem-
ber as the first in the annual Louis
A. Pincus Memorial Lecture Series,
dcJicated to perpetuating the
memory of the late chairman of
the Jewish Agency.
In making the announcement,
Paul Zuckerrnan, UJA general
chairman, said, "We have made
Elie Wiesel's remarks available,
because they are the words of a
man who has spent a lifetime inter-
preting for an entire generation
of his people the real meaning of
being Jewish. His talk was a testa-
ment to the will of the Jewish peo-
ple to overcome despair and a
document of faith that we can
survive whatever tragedy befalls
us as we have survived all the
tragedies of our long history."
"Here are some reasons not to
despair," Elie Wiesel says in his
address. "Our Israel is still here.
Jewish solidarity is stronger than
ever and PURER than ever. Dias-
pora Jews have a heightened
awareness of their kinship with
the people of Israel.

spirit," he continues, "consists in

Khenkin gets heated up when
! speaking of the plight of the Rus-
sian Jew, but outwardly calm, he
, smokes a long cigarette, peers,
through dark glasses and says,
"Once refused, your job goes first.
j There is no way to pet work. As
a rule, activists are without means
of existence. They depend on your
help from abroad."
He was emphatic in explaining,
"There has been no change in
Russian policy even though 4,000
Jews were granted visas in one
month. Facts and figures show
that Jews who come out all be-
long to a certain category who live
on the outskirts of Russia is com-
munities under Soviet rule only
since the end of World War II."
He added. "They don't mind Jews
from non-assimilated areas leaving.
It is the people from the big cities
like Moscow and Leningrad and
closer regions who are denied.
"While they wait." he said,
"there are trials. No longer

teen year sentences which drew
too much attention and protest

cold drink, wipe his brow and
continue, "Now the trials are low-

An example: "A lady activist
who opened her home to many
friends awaiting visas. She was
charged with prostitution.
"If thrown in jail," Khenkin
said, "you're put in the drunk tank
and from then on, your records
show you're an alcoholic."
He cited another minor trial:
"A man standing next to a. woman
who screamed as she dropped a
cake on the street. He was charged
with kicking and beating her.''
Khenkin explained. "These mi-
nor charges bring two and three
year prison terms which the pub-
lic accepts more readily than the
former stiffer sentences. It
achieves the same resultsonce
in, you could stay the rest of your
life. You could disappear."
The Hollywood visitor then
beseeched in his soft-pedal way,
"Your nelp of constant commu-
nication to the Soviet Union is the
only safeguard for Jews. The more
contacts and publicity with Jews
in Russia, the better their chance
io get out."
The Russian concluded. "Re-

Are You Aware of War's Effect?
Between 150,000 and 200.000 Israelis are now in their fourth
month of military reserve duty? That's 10 times as many as in
the relatively normal times before the war broke out on Yom
Kippur. The reservists represent some 15 per cent of the coun-
try's labor force, but the effect of their removal from their civil-
ian occupations has been disproportionately great
The mobilization of drivers created transport bottlenecks.
The aDsence of foremen reduced efficiency in factories. Many

Officials in Jerusalem estimate the mobilization in the first

23 SHEVAT 5734
Once again, the annual Silver Medallion Brotherhood
Awards of the National Conference of Christians and Jews
single out unique men and women in our community for
their distinctive contribution to a healthy environment.
Alvah Chapman, president of Knight Newspapers;
Rev. John McDonnell, president of Biscayne College, and
Robert Russell, board chairman of Russell Anaconda Alu-
minum, are ecologists in the best sense of the word.
They are dedicated to the spiritual cleanliness of South
Florida. Throughout the years, they have worked toward
the development of a community whose residents, of vari-
ous races, religions and extractions, live in harmony.
It is easy to point to the fact that their ideals, which
are embodied in the Silver Medallion Brotherhood Award,
have not been realized to the fullest.
But ours is a community obviously working toward
that realization, and this year's NCCJ winners are among
those who by their lives and their leadership serve as
examples for the rest of us.
They deserve our congratulations.
Modern Tu B'Shevat
Chamisha Osor B'Shevat, or Tu B'Shevat, is officially
celebrated on Feb. 7 this week, but the spirit of the holiday,
we are sure, will be with us for a long time to come.
For Tu B'Shevat is the New Year of the Trees. Bet
Hillel informs us that, historically, the holiday marked the
beginning of the separation of the tithes of fruit, but the
date was more likely chosen because most of the annual
rainfall of Israel fell before the 15th day of Shevat.
On Tu B'Shevat, it has been customary to eat all kinds
of fruit, with particular preference for fruits grown in Israel,
and the eating of these fruits has often been accompanied
by the reciting of Psalms.
In more recent times, Tu'BShevat has come to symbol-
ize the revival and redemption of the modern Jewish na-
tion. It is for this reason that the spirit of the holiday will
remain with us.
For now more than ever, Israel's redemption has spe-
cial meaning for us.
JDC's 60th Year
Since its inception in 1941, JDC has helped some two-
million men, women and children in 75 countries at a cost
which last summer exceeded the $1 billion mark.
JDC was organized shortly after the outbreak of World
War I by Jacob Schiff, Felix Warburg, Louis Marshall. Her-
bert Lehman, Cyrus Adler, Paul Baerwald and other dis-
tinguished Jewish leaders whose names read like the
Blue Book of American Jewish philanthropy.
Their purpose was to coordinate the relief efforts of
already existing and frequently duplicative organizational
The vision of these leaders seemed intuitive. By the
end of the war, large numbers of Jews had been victimized
by vast devastations, dislocations and bigotries.
Crisis followed upon crisis through the Hitler era,
World War II and the founding of the State of Israel, which
also signalled the founding of the JDC offshoot there, Mal-
Today, JDC is still aiding some 400,000 Jews in 25
countries. With conditions worsening, it is not likely that
its programs will diminish; if anything, they can be ex
pected to increase.
In the annals of Jewish need, it is strange to hope that
a major Jewish oraanization will one dav "work its wav
out of existence." But that is our dream for JDC which is
now celebrating its 60th year.
Meanwhile, as in the past, it continues its record of
What Makes a Writer Great
JJTERBERT Luft, the Jewish Tel-
egraphic Agency correspond-
ent in Hollywood, reports that
movie producer Menahem Golan
believes Isaac Bashevis Singer is
"the greatest novelist alive today
in any language "
I have no reason to doubt the
accuracy of Luffs words, and so
it is Golan who must bear the full
weight of his ridiculous opinion.
OF COURSE, Golan has good
reason for his literary judgment.
He is preparing a film version of
Singer's "The Magician of Lub-
He should be entitled to the
conviction with which he espouses
Singer's art. But being a maker
of movies doesn't necessarily
strengthen his role as a critic.
Too many people have the
chut/pah to believe that if they
have succeeded in one line of
work their opinions are sacred in
other lines also.
I WOULD suspect that Golan
has never even read the novels

NEW YORK What do Bob Dylan and Henry Kissinger have in
common? The fact that they are among the few Americans today who
are the subject of a mystique, and the fact that each in his own way
speaks to our condition. There are few greats today.
We are grudging about admitting anyone to the tiny circle of those
who get our unbought, unforced admiration.
THE SIGNING of the disengagement accord by Egypt and Israel is
a triumph of some sort for the most bril'iant practitioner of the dismal
art of diplomacy. In ever;- figure who leaves his mark on us there must
I be an element of the magical.
We don't marvel at the everyday, but at the extraordinary. Our
wonder goes to the magician who gets in touch with a creative force
beyond himself to contrive his result.
Thus with Kissinger's trips in his shuttle diplomacy which for
the first time since Franklin and Jefferson makes the diplomatic
calling not just a cookie-pushing, striped-pants racket.
AMERICANS HAVE always thought of diplomacy as a European
art, and have suspected it as part of the devil's province. But diplomats
like Metternich, Talleyrand and Bismark achieved greatness in it be-
cause Europe was the arena of the Great Powers.
The center of gravity has shifted today, and with the shift the stage
has widened. The United States, as the center and container of the
world's storms, is thrust onto the stage of diplomacy. By a strange and
ucky convergence of history and qualities, Kissinger has emerged as
the world's chief diplomat.
When you consider that he has to operate in the midst of the Water-
gate turmoil, without an effective President, his art is more impressive.
THERE HAS been only one man in the recent past with similar
skills of pcrsuasivenness. He was Jean Monnet, who conceived and ear-
ned through the European Economic Community. To get the Germans
and French to sink their differences was not as hard as to get the Egyp-
tian and Israelis to agree on a map of withdrawal, but hard enough.
Monnet stayed clear of official jobs, and worked behind the scenes.
Kissinger operates equally on and offstage.
I asked Monnet once what his philosophy of persuasion was. He
didn t try to persuade anyone, he said. He got the government leaders
to see that there were practical steps they could take which would
benefit all nations more than hurt any of them.
AND EACH step, he added, involved them in actions which led in-
evitably to the next. This was his form of pragmatic linkage. He was a
rench businessman who had been deeply influenced bv residence in
ixHidon. Washington and China, and had learned a remarkable mixture
Jf UM arts of persuasion from all three. Kissinger is a very similar
There has been a shift of political heroes. There are no longer any

Handle My CARE Package With Care
By RITA GOODMAN
Last October I sent a CARE
package to Israel.
She's only 5'2" tall, has lovely
blue eyes, marvelous natural curly
b:onde hair and has called me
"Mom" for 21 years.
The day (two days after Yom
Kippur) when my daughter,
Barbara, told me she'd volunteered
to go to Israel. I felt as if it had
been me who was attacked.
Of course, i was proud. Proud
she'd thought to do it without
consulting anyone but her social
conscience, but I'd also be a liar
if I didn't admit I was scared.
I have only one son.

Dr. Nahum cioidmann, presi-
dent of the WJC, addressed him-
self to the Geneva peace confer-
ence. This is how the most dis-
tinguished diaspora Jewish leader
sees the position today:
"The Jewish people is always
inclined to exaggerate in its reac-
tions to developments, and to
veer from excessive enthusiasm
to excessive despair.
"THE OBJECTIVE situation of
Israel is by far not as bad as many
Jews assume it to be. There is no
danger to the security of Israel.
Neither are th< Arabs now, or in
the foreseeable future, strong
enough to defeat Israel. Nor
would the United States, and al-
so some other nations, stand by
if Israel were to face real dan-
ger and her survival were threat-
ened Even the Soviet Union does
not seem to be interested in tha
elimination of Israel."
Dr. Goldmann made it clear,
with the enthusiastic approval of
all those present, that diaspora
Jewry had no intention to discus-;
details of frontiers and security
arrangements. He confined him-
self to saying that the time was
opportune for peace: and to an
appeal not to miss this oppor-

Goldmann on one or two points.
He was not prepared to take it
for granted that the world would
not stand by and let Israel be
eliminated if her security was in
jeopardy. At any rate, he would
not take such a risk,

would die before the world is mo-

policy of the French government,
but French Jews rose up in indig-

Marc Turkow, of Buenos Aires,
warned against dangers lurking
in Latin America. The Latin
American Congress of Arabs was
a serious menace, but Latin Amer-

counteract it. he said.
MARCUS EINFIELD, an Aus-
tralian Jewish leader now in Lon-
don, took us to a new arena of
human strife: "Diaspora Jews are
still able to retain and expand
existing links, and build new
ones, with Asian and African

Constitutional changes can only
be adopted by the plenary assem-
bly, but Dr. Gerhard Riegner, sec-
retary-general of the WJCongress,
introduced a number of changes
for the approval of the govern-
ing council before they are put
to the assembly in the spring.
THE WJC will in the future
have the following ruling bodies:
a small executive of 10 members,
a governing board of 50 mem-
bers, a general council of some
150 members, and the plenary
assembly of some 500 members.
The executive will meet as and
when required, and an inner
group of the executive will be in
continuous session. The govern-
ing board will meet twice a year,
the general council will meet ev-
ery two years, and the plenary
assembly every five years.
OF THE resolutions most
of them obvious, though perhaps
in need of reiteration vis-a-vis
the outside world the follow-
ing should be singled out:
"The governing council notes
with decs concern that, in the
climate created by terrorism,
some Arab governments have
been encouraged to employ eco-
nomic blackmail to exercise pres-
sure against their critics in free
countries. A conspicuous example
has been the recent arrogant de-
mand by Libya for the dismissal
of the two writers on the Italian
daily, La Stampa. and its distin-
guished editor, Arrigo Levi. who
is a Jew. This demand has for-
tunately been rejected."

We are in the heart of the '74 campaign. All echelons in our Hi-
Rises, from the top chairmen to the floor captains, are busy organizing,
planning events and soliciting. Hard working and dedicated people, they
are committed to r.ie'.r jou ano yet, something -.s occurring that is un-
derstandable but needs explanation.
These volunteers become frustrated and angry at individuals whom
they feel are not doing their share because some they ask will not work
or make the kind of contribution that the campaign worker expects. Of
course, their anger and frustration spills over to our office.
Just the other doy, one of our building chairmen arrived very up-
set with a number of his building people because of what he consid-
ered a non-acceptable contribution. He reeled off a half dozen names, j vi Kolitz. Israeli author, jour-
At the same time, he brought in a large number of pledges from other | na]^3ii motion picture and the-
contributors in the building. When we helped him analyze those gifts, '
he was able to see that, on the average, it was over a 100 per cent in-
-We tried to show him that the job he was doing was excellent and
that there will be disappointments in individual prospects because of
many reasons. One is that people have not been properly educated in
the past. Their pattern of giving is not appropriate from our view-
point, but for them, it is. Possibly they have not been solicited properly.
How do you he'p a frustrated worker? Positives and accomplish-
ments must be pointed out. You mnt do this honestly and realistically.
You must also help him understand how he can work better with those
causing the frustration by providing outide solicitors to accompany
the worker for re-solicitation of those individuals.

which we are able to answer, and some of which we are unable to
answer. However, we must look at facts.
We are raising more money than ever before many of our con-
tributors have increased their gift significantly and our workers are
doing the best possible job they can do. If we translate what we are
attempting into terms of business, we see that we have a product to
sell, one which we feel is important and necessary. There are many
times we cannot convince all our customers that this is something in
which they should become involved especially if there are competi-
tors with similar products which these people feel are also worthwhile.
Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. This applies to the Jewish
Welfare Federation campaign.
Wc wiH succeed but not with everyone. We should look at the
positives realistically and not blow up negatives out of proportion.
As I see it. that will help us keep on an even keel.
I think that it is moct imnortant to help him realize that everyone
cannot be convinced at least we have not yet found a way.
There is also another problem: It is most important to be aware
of the best person for soliciting a prospect. Recently an incident oc-
curred in which a number of our top campaign people met informally
with one of our contributors who was abrupt and caustic. These leaders
became very upset and understandably so. However, this particular
contributor had in the past, always been solicited by one or two people
who know him well. He was unfamiliar with the people who approached
him now. Thi* is a danger in dealing with some contributors. This is
why we do have an alignment Drocess for finding the very best person
to speak with potential contributors.
These incidents cause all of us the feeling of disgust, frustration
or anger at times. We feel our cause is great. It is only natural, then
for us to be upset with others who do not see it our way. What we may
think a significant gift may not be one in the eyes of the contributor.
How do we convince him of our cause? How do we help him determine

By PAUL KERBEL
Here is the S64.000 question
which I have been asked repeated-
ly: "What has ^happened to the
' Jewish Youth Council?"
It is a long and complicated
When the Jewish Youth Council
was formed in the Fall of 1971, it
was designed to be a council, of
| Jewish youth oiganizations in this
area for planning and coordinating
community youth activities. Since
we did not have a Jewish Commu-
nity Center program at that time
the JYC also attracted non-af-
filiated youth, those who did not
wish to become actively interested
in Jewish life but who wanted
something to hang on to.
Many called the JYC a "Super
, Youth Group" but I prefer to call
it a melting pot.
By November of 1973, we saw
j that pot burning. The JYC had
i outgrown its original stiucture
I and was on the verge of collapse.
In December the Executive Board
' of the Jewish Youth Council voted
| to disband. At this same meeting
| a new oreanization was formed to
| replace the JYC. It was named
: iiiti Council ol Jewish \outh
Some 32 members comprise the
council; two representatives from
each of the sixteen youth groups
of Greater Hollywood. Their func-
I .ion is:
1. To meet on a once-a-month
basis for discussion and to present
organizational programs. Each
group presents a monthly calendar
of events t.> prevent conflict of !
2. To mobilize the total Jewish
youth community when necessary,
especially for community programs
3. To serve as an idea exchange
for inter-organizational programs
4. To reiate and discuss prob-
5. To approve all community
wide youth activities.
All programs planned by an
organization which require youth
attendence on a mass level must j
be presented and approved by the
Council. I am referring to pro-
grams such as "Salute to Israel"
program, "Women's Rights Day
Soviet Jewry Rally," Israel rallies.

The day he entered the train he
weighed 225 pounds.
Shortly thereatler he was to

As the Jews labored to build
Dachau with pick and axe (the
callouses remain on his hands to-
day) Stieber and his close-prisoner
friend vowed, "We're going to teli
our story in America."
After four months he was trans-
ferred to the building of a new
insanity called Buchenwald.
Six months and numerous lash-
ings later, Stieber was felled with
a possible case of typhoid fever.
Prospect of the disease was a
welcome relief for, although the
Nazis didn't mind the Jews dying,
they couldn't afford to lose their
thousands of storm troopers.
So Otto Stieber was returned tc
his native Vienna for observation.
The nuns, one of whom remem-
bered him as the boy who tended
his mother's bothersome goats,
legally recorded his "death."
With their aid and the help of
his brother who obtained a forged
passport, Stieber, the remnant of
a young man, arrived on crutches
in Switzerland with a ticket to the
United States but no money.
He says. 'I went to Shul on a

Spectacular Foliage Surrounds
Halcyon Hotels of The Caribbean
A Travel Report by Ellen
Jacoben prepared exclusively
for The Jewish Floridian and
Shofar of Hollywood.
The inveterate nature lover
will find himself awash in a to-
tal floral experience when va-
cationing at Halcyon resorts in
the Bahamas, Antigua and St.
For centuries, these inlands
have been justifiably famous
for tropical blossoms fran-
gipani. hibiscus and oleander,
for example as well as wild
ferns, exotic fruit trees and, of
course, the majestic palms.
A miraculous natural gift to
the islands has been the con-
stant trade winds. Through
their ability to blow clouds in-
land, encourage daily rain in
the tropics and drift seeds from
surrounding land masses, the
"trades" have given life to the
soil. Blossoms, in turn, attracted
birds and insects, thus perpet-
uating the many plants and
Christopher Columbus played
a major role in adding to ths
beauty of Antigua. After sight-
ing and naming the island in
1493. he returned a second time
carrying plants from the Old
World. Today, the newly opened
Halcyon Cove is set amid this
lush foliage, and even has a
planting nursery on the grounds
to ensure a continuing supply
In addition to Columbus, ex-
plorers and settlers from Spain,
Portugal, France, England and
Holland also carried plants from
Europe to the islands. Interest-
ingly enough, the Halcyon Days
resort at Vieux Fort, St. Lucia,
is nestled in a former coconut
plantation while the Halcyon
Beach Club near Castries is
spectacularly blessed with an
abundance of tropical trees,
plants and flowers. Not far from
Doth resorts is perhaps the most
beautiful foliage-girded lagoon
in the world Marigot Bay,
where many of the scenes for
the movie "Dr. Dolittle" were
Of course, the king palms
reign supreme throughout the
islands, and are especially uti-
lized for eyecatching effect in

sau, Bahamas. This beautiful
beach resort is well-known to
legions of visitors for its metic-
ulously manicured lawns and
By retaining natural settings
and adding new plantings, the

Diaspora 'Negativism' Eyed
NEW YORK (JTA) There
is a large number of American
Jews, particularly among youth
and intellectuals, who are indif-
ferent to Israel following the Yom
This was reported to the aca-
demic forum of the Zionist Coun-
cil of Arts, the academic arm of
the American Zionist Federation.
THE PANELISTS at the meet-
ing, which was held recently at
the Graduate Center of the City
University of New York, indi-
cated that the polar ends of the
Jewish communal spectrum
those who are totally committed
to Israe' and those who are to-
tally indifferent have both
been strengthened as a result of
the Yom Kippur war.
Dr. Arnulf M. Pins, executive
director of the Memorial Founda-
tion for Jewish Culture, and vis-
iting professor of social work at
the Hebrew University, reported
that on the basis of a survey he
had conducted on the reactions of
the American Jewish community
to the Yom Kippur war, it is ap-
parent that "despite the increased
number of committed Jews, there
is still a relatively large number
who are ambivalent and an in-
creasing number of Jews who
question the viability of the exist-
ence of the Jewisn state."

tact which many young American

Jews have had with Israel since
1967," he urged that Zionists un-
dertake a campaign of "increas-
ing personal contact with Israel,
providing more information on
what is happening in Israel, pro-
moting Israel as a specifically
Jewish cause and preparing young
people ror poetical activity and
encouraging, the committed to
go on aliyah."
Dr. Pins said the rising ambiv-
alence and negativism of those
intellectuals who were hostile to
Israel was due to "the fact that
the Yom Kippur war was not as
clear-cut an issue as was the last
one and that there was an ab-
sence of campus activism and eth-
nic consciousness on the current
DR. pins proviaed a statisti-
cal breakdown of his findings
among those negative to Israel aa
follows: 5 to 10 per cent do not
:are, 25 to 30 per cent believe
Israel should be more flexible,
2 to 5 per cent believe that U.S
cultural pluralism is a myth and
that aliyah is the only solution,
50 to 60 per cent simply worry,
and 3 to 6 per cent acknowledge
the existence of a real problem

Lamm, professor of Jewish phi-
losophy at Yeshiva University,
and rabbi of the Jewish Center,
and Dr. Leonoard J. Fein, pro
lessor of politics and social pol
icy at the Florence Heller Grad-
uate School of Brandeis Univer-
Dr. Lamm felt that there was
a certain anti-Israelism among a
good portion of American Jews.
"Despite the vicarious delight in
the Sabra's bravura, American
Jews were always subconsciously
annoyed by Israeli militarism.
The attempt by Israel's founders
to destroy the diaspora mentality
was, perhaps, too successful," he
THE RESULT of the Yom Kip-
pur war in terms of those who
are already committed to Israel
is, according to Dr. Lamm, "a
combination of a new awareness
of Israel's vulnerability, a crucial
realization of Israel's importance
for Jewish survival in the face of
heightened anti-Semitism, and the
first time that the Israeli leader-
ship has been held accountable
that it is not infallible."
Dr. Fein, who had been on a
cross-country campaign in behalf
of Israel, pointed out that "for
the first time in history there
was no inhibition on the part of
the American Jewish people in
responding to the problem."
At the same time, he called at-
tention to the repeated attempts
by leaders of non-Zionist organi-
zations, to encourage greater in-
dependence of American Jewry

On Apostate and Martyred Jews
^ISRAELI IN LOVE," by Maurice Edelman
(Stein & Day, $7.95, 417 pp.), is a novel
lepicting the non-political aspects of the life of
he apostate Jew who brought Great Britain to
L pinnacle of fame and made it an empire upon
thich the sun did not set.
This is the story of the young Disraeli who
is the dashing opportunist on the way to be-
aming the most powerful man in England.
The author has been a member of Parliament

'THE MACCABEES," by Moshe Pearlman
iMa:mil!an Publshing Co.. $12.95, 272 pp.). is a
beautifully il!u-*rated dramatization of a water-
shed in Jewish history. It is an authentic histori-
cal account based on Hebrew accounts, as well as
",reek and Latin sources.
The book is profusely illustrated with photo-
graphs of scenes and statuary. The author is a
former lieutenant colonel in the Israeli Army and
a scholar of distinction. He has made history
sound as if it were contemporary'.

I ASIDE FROM its physical con-
sequence, thn war his al'0
upset a number of political cre-
I does and ideological beliefs. Slo-
gans which had been freely ban-
died about in the preceding
months and years are still being
used, but their meanings have
"No surrender of territories
Or, "there will never be peace
unless we give up territories."
These no longer mean the same,
and it is not the same people
who use them.
AT ONE time there were fairly
clear lines of demarcation sep-
.'' ating the so-cailei doves from
the hawks. Today the birds them-
selves are not quite sure of their
ornithological classification. Of
one thing only they are certain:
none of us wants to be a sitting
pigeon for the Arabs.
The leading figures in the dove
movement, prior to the war, were
Lyova Eliav. Pinhas Sapir, Abbi
Eban. and a long string of Utopi-
an1!, idealists and extreme leftists
whose views differed from each
other only in degree.
THEY MAINTAINED in prin-
ciple that so long as Israel held
(onto the occupied areas Golsn,
West Bank of the Jordan, Gaza,
Sinai, there could never be peace.
The realists among these
doves sustained a rude shock on
Yom Kippur Day. They discov-
ered that while they had been
talking about good-will and com-
promise and gestures of friend-
ship, the Arabs had been planning
the complete military destruction
BUT IF the doves in Israel's
public life were disconcerted,
much the same can be s.-.id for
the hawks. The leading advocates
of the strong stand were Golda
Meir. Moshe Dayan, Israeli Galili,
and a number of personalities
from military and right-wing cir-
They insisted that the Arab?
could not be trusted. Israel's se-
curity lav in our continued occu-
pation of the areas, and in build-
ing up our military power. They
were against any unilateral com-
promise. Indeed they were skepti-
cal of the value of any "guaran-
tees" which might be offered in
exchange for softening of Israel's
attitude. Any show of weakness
would be a step toward suicide,
AND THEY too experienced a
rude awakening on Yom Kippur
Day. The much vaunted military
machine was caught by surprise.
If there was a miracle in this war,
it was the rapidity with which we
regained our balance, and were
able to shift to the offensive. But
the blind faith in the invincibility
of our armed forces and its lead-
ership was badly shaken. The
hawks, too, are taking a new look
at their philosophies. Following
the elections there will inevitably

philosophies and even of personal
JT WAS reported out of Minne-
apolis the other day that a fed-

The federal judge ruled for
compensation for those 20 Amer-

This freak arrest took place
four years ago. Since then, a
wobbly peace has been estab-
lished in Vietnam, the U.S.
troops have cleared out, and re-
criminations about America's in-
volvement in that still tormented
land have subsided.
BUT FOR the sake of our fu-
ture course, we owe it to our
children and their children to
count the cost of the involvement.
Especially now that we have vi-
tal national legislation curbing

WITH SUCH a safeguard, can
any one, two or three presidents
ever again puli into a murderous
morass like Vietnam? Would we
ever again permit 50.000 Amer-
icans to be killed in a war so far
removed from our own shores,
and would we recall that the
American casualties in Vietnam
were almost as great and painful
as those in World War II?
Chances are we will forget the
Vietnam tragedy far too soon.
Shocking current events will
crowd out the sordid history of
this past three decades: the Japa-
nese occupation of Vietnam in
1940, the rise of Ho Chi Minh, the
agreement by th? United States
in 1959 to help France finance
the French war against Ho Chi
Minh, the fogged-over Geneva
agreement of 1951, the first in-
sertion of U.S. Military Assist-
ance Advisory Groups in 1955,
the aboltion of free ''lections by
Premier Diem in 1956.

We are told by Buckminster
Fuller that the nations of this
fear-racked world are spending
$2 trillion each year now for arm-

Perhaps the U.S. Army major
who said of the village of Bentre
that "it became necessary to de-
stroy the town to save it" was
tipping us off to the ominous pos-
sibility that other warriors, more
highly placed, may find it neces-
sary to pulverize the planet to
Generals Don't Always Take Over
COME CONCERN has been expressed at the
number of military leaders in Israel holding
political office after retirement from their army
Prof. Abel Jacob, in a letter to the New York
Times, points out that in the case of Israel many
of the officers retiring at the age of 45 or there
about* are men of talent and administrative abil-
ity and it is easy to see why they are recruited for
BUT HE thinks there should be a lanse ol
some five years or so, before being eligible for
There is of course the danger that some mili-
tary leader might try to take over a country, but
it has never happened in the U.S. and will not
likely happen in Israel. Washington, Andrew Jack-
son, Grant, Taylor, Harrison and Eisenhower were
all generals before being President.
There have been military leaders who ha*
been good Presidents and some who were not so
good, just as there have been good and bad Presi-
dents who were not military men. Grant was a
great military leader, but a complete washout as
President. On the othr hand, Andrew Jackson
was an excellent President.
'Exorcist': Swiftest Run Away in the Million Dollar Movie Market
WILLIAM FRIEDKIN, a graduate from television
with only two important features, "Boys in the
Band" and "The French Connection" to his credit,
is director of "The Exorcist," from the controversial
novel by William Peter Blatty dealing with the sub-
ject of diabolical possession.
The book has sold over six-million copies through-
out the United States and has been translated into
THE MOVIE, which was in production for more
than 10 months and cost in excess of $10 million, is
destined to become the year's runaway money-maker,
grossing almost $2 million during its first week in
only 25 theaters in the United States and Canada.
Produced by Blatty for Warner Bros., "The
Exorcist", opened at the National Theater in the
fashionable suburb of Westwood in Los Angeles,
with long lines waiting at the box office for hours
(during the current rain storm) vainly trying to
obtain tickets which are sold out days abend.
"The Exorcist" recounts the eternal struggle
between the forces of good and evil dealing with a
devilish creature who has taken over the body of an
tedious rites have been performed by a Jesuit priest
and a professional exorcist called in from abroad.
UNLIKE "The Dybbuk," where a young woman
is possessed by her lover, a Yeshiva student in Po-
land of yesteryear who had found an untimely death,
"The Exorcist" boasts no romantic relationship be
tween the maiden and the dominating force within
On the contrary, the demonic spirit of today is
one inclined to kill those trying to perform the
exorcism and simultaneously eager to destroy the
girl just for spite.

Tropic of Cancer" and "The Last Picture Show," ren-
