{to assume that the

United States punishes such a
stalwart friend such as Israel and
rewards such an arrogant and
unbending element such as Saudi
Arabia?" Sternstein urged the
Jewish community to "mobilize
its full resources to oppose" the
arms sale.
Rabbi William Berkowitz,
president of the Jewish National
Fund, charged that the sale of
arms would be "catastrophic for
the United States, for Israel and
for the cause of peace and
stability in the Middle East."
Noting that there is nothing
"moderate" about the Saudi vow
to destroy Israel, he emphasized
that "the sale of such weapons
would only put them into the
hands of a regime that could
prove to be as unstable as Iran.
When will our country learn the
lesson that all the arms we pro-
vide the Saudis will not save
Prince Fahd anymore than the
Americans arms saved the throne
af the Shah of Iran?"
RABBI SOL ROTH, president
of the Rabbinical Council of
America, said that sermons on
the last days of Passover in more
than 1,000 Orthodox congre-
gations emphasized the danger to
the U.S. if the Administration
ignores all opposition to the arms
sale. He also announced that
many Orthodox congregations
would make petitions available to
be signed and sent to the White
House, State Department and
Congress. The petitions would
declare that "Saudi Arabia can
not be trusted to be an ally of the
U.S. now or in the future."
The Central Conference of
American Rabbis (CCAR), the
association of Reform rabbis,
said the arms sale was "un-
necessary" and was being pro-
posed "without achieving Saudi
acceptance of Israel and a firm
guarantee to join in the Camp
David peace process. '
The CCAR also asserted that
the projected sale "will only serve
to fuel the arms race and antago-
nisms in the Middle East, further
destabilizing the region and act-
ing in the worst interests of the
United States and our allies." It
asked the Reagan Ad-
ministration to withdraw its
planned weapons sale to Saudi
Arabia, and if formal notification
was sent to Congress, "we call
upon Congress to vote against"
the proposal.

Evron Asks Veliotes
That U.S.'Reconsider'
WASHINGTON (JTA) Israel has asked the
U.S. to "reconsider" its multi-million dollar arms sale to
Saudi Arabia, Israeli Ambassador Ephraim Evron said
here. He stressed that Israel is "objecting to the whole
package," not just to the AWACS surveillance aircraft
included in the sale.
Evron made his statement after meeting with
Nicholas Veliotes, Assistant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs, at the State Depart-
ment. It was a follow-up to the meeting the Israeli envoy
had earlier with Secretary of State Alexander Haig.
Evron said the supply of arms to the Saudis "will
make our security that much more difficult to defend." He
noted that even if the AWACS are manned by Americans,
where the planes will fly and what they will monitor will
be decided by the Saudis. He also contended that the sale
"undermines the stability of the area."
Evron said he was aware of the opposition to the sale
in Congress but would not hazzard a guess as to whether
it would be rejected by the House and Senate.

Raising Money Is the Means
Saving Lives, Building a Nation
During 1980 its centennial
year HI AS helped almost
28.000 refugees find new homes
in free nations, according to
reports presented to board mem
bers from throughout the country
at its annual meeting in Not
York City last month.
This figure represents th<
second largest number of peoplt
helped by the Jewish migratior
agency- in any single year sinct
World War II. and includes
18.631 Soviet Jews, it was an-
nounced by HI AS president
Edwin Shapiro.
TO CARRY OUT its world
wide activities in the past year,
the agency spent $18,587,793.
which includes funds furnished
by the United State Government
for the resettlement of 5.157 In-
dochinese refugees. 2,781 Cubans
and smaller numbers of other
HIAS-assisted non-Jewish
emigrants from other countries.
Leonard Seidenman, the
newly-appointed executive vice
president of HI AS. told board
members the agency "is con-
fident that the Reagan adminis-
tration will continue in the great
American tradition of extending
welcome and support to
refugees." He noted that Presi-
dent Reagan has frequently
expressed his commitment and
compassion for the plight of
refugees worldwide, "and we look
forward to seeing these sympa-
thies reflected in continnuing
support" for these programs.
In discussing the future reset-
tlement of Soviet Jews. Seiden-
man reported on a plan developed
late in 1980 to provide these
refugees "with a more accurate
picture of the positive possibili-
ties offered by Israeli resettle-
ment. Jews in the USSR," he
pointed out. "have been sub-
jected to years of anti-Israel and
anti-Semitic propaganda, and
deserve a more honest and
realistic view of the constructive
opportunities available to them
in Israel.
that the plight of thousands of
Jews in a number of countries
"has grown more serious in the
past year," and the agency
pledged through several reso-
lutions to continue its assist-
ance to members of these "op-
pressed and endangered" over-
seas Jewish communities.
In other resolutions, the
agency proclaimed its desire "to
continue our long standing coop-
eration with the Jewish Agency
in our common efforts to provide
free and secure havens for the
many thousands of Jews suffer-
ing from persecution and fear."

Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County Supports 'Klanwatch'
A new Alabama-based organi
zation kOTwn as Klanwatch"
formed to counter violence anc
intimidation directed against
blacks is compiling dossiers on
members of the Ku Klux Klan in
Georgia and throughout the
country, as well as tracking the
movements of Klan leaders.
The "Klanwatch" group, a
project of the Southern Poverty
Law Center in Montgomery,
Alabama is engaged in a multi-
pronged effort to expose the ac-
tivities of Klan members and lay
the groundwork for lawsuits
against the Resurging Robed
Order, center director Morris
Dees said Tuesday.
One lawsuit seeking $ 1 million
in damages from Klan members
already has been filed on behalf of
a group of Blacks in a Birming-
ham federal court.
"The series of violent events
that have taken place in Alabama
and Mississippi led to the forma-
tion of the group seven weeks
ago, Dees said. "We just felt that
some effort needs to be made tc
show the Klan for what it realh
is, and not what the Klan publii
relations people say it is. It's i
group that only exists in a violent
atmosphere of confrontation."
Dees said there has been lea:
public Klan activity in Georgia
than in such racially troubled
states as Alabama and Missis
sippi, and no leader with state
wide influence has emerged ii

But the Klan has surfaced in
demonstrations in Wrightsville.
and there has been some activity
in the Cedartown area in North-
west Georgia. Beyond those
actions, Klan members have
generally kept a low profile in the
Klan demonstrators, marches
and rallies sometimes leading
to violence are occurring more
frequently in other parts of the
country, however, and "Klan-
watch" is attempting to
document those actions. Dees
said. The group, comprised
largely of Southern Poverty Law
Center staff, also is compiling
dossiers on Klan leaders and
members from around the
Dees estimated that "Klan-
watch" has identified nearly 500
Klan members in 16 Southern
States, as well as California,
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and
some in Canada. He said his
group attempts to establish the
rank Klan members hold and
track their movements.
The Southern Poverty Law
Center is a legal organization
which has filed numerous class
action civil rights lawsuits on
behalf of minorities and the poor.
Dees said his staff utilizes a
variety of methods in its "Klan-
watch" efforts, including the use
of a service which clips Klan
related stories from 13,000 publi-
cations. The collection of Klan
material from daily and weekly
newspapers and magazines is
augmented by photographs and
video tapes of Klan activities.
The Klan information will be
available to journalists reporting
on the Klan, Dees added, and a
regular compilation of Klan
actions throughout the nation
will be included in a newsletter
being sent to reporters.
A vedeotape of Klan members
attacking a group of Black
marchers in Decatur. Alabama
was made available recently to
the "Phil Donahue Show," which
featured Klan leader Bill Wilkin-
son and Georgia state Sen. Julian
Bond. Wilkinson is the Imperial
Wizard of the more militant
faction of the Klan known as the
Invisible Empire, Knights of the
Ku Klux Klan. Bond is president
of the Law Center.
While Dees was reluctant to
divulge other data-gathering
methods used by "Klanwatch"
workers, he suggested that dis-
enchanted or disgruntled Klan
members are vaaieable sources of

lished information. Dees said his
group also is turning over to fed-
eral prosecutors information
gathered on possible violations of
federal laws. He said staffers cur-
rently are putting together a case
which will be presented to a U.S.
attorney that relates to possible
illegal Klan activities in Alabama
and Mississippi. He declined to
disclose details of the Klan ac-
tions or which federal prosecutor
will receive the case.

Lou Rosen
The Jewish people are well known for the importance that
they place upon the value of a good education, both secular and
religious. Lou Rosen as said "A Jewish education helps per-
petuate our community and our people by aiding our under-
standing of our traditions and our history." In keeping with his
beliefs, when Lou and his wife Lillian moved here four years ago.
i ontinued his lifelong involvement in the field of education.
Lou is a retired high school teacher from Detroit, and when
he isn't gardening or fulfilling his community obligations, he
ututes in the St. Petersburg High School. He also serves as
a substitute teacher in the Jewish Day School and the Hebrew
High School at Congregation B'nai Israel.
Lou was born in Cleveland, but grew up in Detroit. He
jrraauated from Ohio State and Wayne State Universities, with
degrees in education and psychology. While in Detroit, Lou was
an active participant in Jewish communal affairs. He served on
the Executive Board of the Jewish Community Council, was the
Youth and Education Director of Adot Shalom Synagogue, and
was honored as Man of the Year by Beth Moses Synagogue.
Since moving here, Lous dedication to the community has
not lessened. "My whole focus has been the Jewish community
and its needs, especially in the area of education," he said.
"Unless a Jew knows his history and participates in it he does
not understand the source of his being. Lou has always tried to
translate these ideals into practical applications. He serves his
shul. B'nair Israel in St. Petersburg, as a member of the Board
of Trustees, is a member of the Education Commission, and is
the chairman of the Adult Education Commission. In addition,
Lou is involved in the affairs of the total Jewish community. He
is a member of the board of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County, and a member of the Federation Education committee,
and the Scholarship Committee. Lou is also the Adult Education
Coordinator for Pinellas County, and as such was responsible for
gathering information regarding the adult education programs
offered throughout the county and diseminating the information
to the public. Lou also helped in organizing the Midrasha
program in Pinellas County.
While Lou is kept busy with his volunteer work, Lillian
maintains her involvement in Jewish affairs by serving as Zion-
ist affairs chairwoman of her Hadassah chapter. Lou and Lillian
have one daughter, Janis, who lives in Cobleskill, New York.
We hope the Rosens remain actively involved in our Jewish
community for many years. We need people with their dedi-
cation and commitment, and are grateful to have them here.

From the Rabbi's Desk
There is a wonderful story told of a young man who goes off
to college in his freshman year. At the Passover holidays he re-
turned home and during the Seder meal he remarked to his
family with pride, my professor told us that Moses knew
nothing about geography, if he (the professor) would have led
the children of Israel out of Egypt it would have only taken
seven days to reach Israel, instead of the forty years that they
wandered. The young man's father who lacked the benefit of
higher education replied, perhaps Moses did not know geo-
graphy but your professor does not know the Jews. If he had
been in the place of Moses he would not have brought the Jews
to Israel even in 40 years. Fore had he been there he would have
never taken the Jews out of Egypt. Passover is only the begin-
ning of a cycle of holidays observed during this time of year. For
eight days we eat only Matzah and for 42 days after Passover we
count the Omer. During those days we observe Yom Haahoah, a
memorial to the martyrs of Israel, Israel Independence Day, Lag
Ba Omer, Yom Yerushalayim and finally Shavout. All of these
holidays have important meaning individually and yet they all
relate to one major theme.
We Jews dwell a great deal on our past. We do this because
as we learn from the mistakes we make, the World learns from
the mistakes it makes. To avoid a repeat performance we try to
remember the injustices that have befallen mankind, while we
study the law of G-d and how it benefits the world we live in. We
are certainly not the barbaric world of 2.000 years ago. We no
longer tolerate men being torn to shreds by a vicious lion while a
crowd watches with shear joy. Today we hide our atrocities in
death camps and gas our victims humanly.
Believe it or net this too is progress.
We seek an age when even the smallest offense against
mankind will be viewed by the public with disgust and only a
Messianic era will bring total peace.
In the interim we must work to better the world we live in
by remembering through the observance of Mitzvote. our role in
this world.
The summer months will close our Federation Campaign,
the fall will bring with it the high holidays and religious school.

Mideast Geopolitcal Struggle
With regard to these planes, we have been
warning in our editorial columns all along that the
AW ACS would become an Israeli issue rather than
what it ought to be a nationwide issue. And so
they have. Can we afford to arm the Saudis with
AW ACS when, more and more, they appear to be
going down the road toward their own destruction
taken earlier by the regime of the Shah of Iran?
Can we afford that, in the event of such a Saudi
self-disappearing act, our AWACS fall into enemy
hands precisely in the same way that so much of our
sophisticated weaponry given to the Shah of Iran fell
into enemy hands?
Those who say we can not are now being
regarded merely as supporters of Israel rather than
as Persons concerned with the safety of America, as
well. Neither is the issue an academic question as
Saudi Arabia's oil czar, Sheikh Yamani, demon-
strated so clearly last week on two separate oc-
casions, once on national American television and
then a second time before a Foreign Policy Associa
tion meeting in New York.
Both times, Yamani declared flat out that Israe
is a greater threat to the stability of the Middle East
than the Soviet Union this from an Arab mon-
archist who would survive along with his country
only if Israel were to survive. And who would go the
way of the Shah of Iran if Israel were not to survive,
and the Russians were permitted to have their way in
in that area of the world.
We are not often given to quoting Egypt's Pres-
ident Sadat, whom we have not trusted from the
word go. Still, while he applauded the Reagan Ad-
ministration's decision to supply the Saudis with
AWACS last week, he also remarked that the Saudis
are a nation poised on the brink of disaster because
they simply fail to recognize the realities of today's
geopolitical struggle in the Middle East.

Paula Hawkins IP... Fla.I has
been named a chairman of the
United States Committee to se-
cure recognition of Israels Star
of David as an official symbol of
thv International Red Cross.
"I am honored to have been
choocn for such an important
lien in this organization, and
I am proud to be affiliated with a
cause as worthwhile as Operation
Recognition." Sen. Hawkins
OPERATION Recognition is a
worldwide effort to obtain in-
ternational Red Cross recognition
of the Red Star of David -
Magen David Adorn'
Since 1948, several attempts
have been made to include the
Society of Israel, an emergency
public health service in Israel, in
i hi membership of the League of
Red Cross Societies.
Rabbi Rubin Dobin. inter-
national chairman of Operation
Recognition, said the Israeli
organization has been denied ad-
miasion to the international or-
ganization because it refuses to
accept the Christian symbol of
the Red Cross.
This, he said, is despite the fact
that Geneva Red Cross officials
admit Israel meets nine of the ten
criteria for admission.
"THERE IS a major in-
consistency in this denial for ad-
mission." Sen. Hawkins said.
noting that other countries have
batn allowed to adopt their own

Israel is reversed, so that the Red

Innovative Program For Children

Home Start
Starting soon. Jewish Homes
in Pinellas County can begin re-

dynamic intergenerational
program aimed at promoting
greater family participation in
Jewish observance, announced
Reva Kent. President of the
Jewish Federation and Dr.
Michael Phillips. President of the
Pinellas country Jewish Day
School. "Thia award-winning
program for children three-to-
seven year-old has been met with
great enthusiasm in other cities
throughout North America and
has had such great impact", he-
she continued, "we fed confident
that "Home Start's" introduc-

Jewish tradition, family unity
and the Jewish community, as

Subscribing families will be

packets, about one week apart,
including stories and storybooks

and historical information for the
fall holidays (that includes as
one holiday Rosh Hashanah.
Yom Kippur. Sukkot and Sim

covered in the following year
1982-83, include Hanukkahi

Different versions of each set
of holiday materials are tailored
not only as to the age of the
child!rent pre-school, three to
four-years-old and primary
grades, five to seven-years-old
but also to meet the needs of the
families of Conservative,
Orthodox and Reform orienta-
tion. "That so much care has
been taken to customize the
packets and make them suitable
for everyone is an outstanding
and unique element of this inno-
vative program", observed Ed
Frankel. President of the Pinellas
County Jewish Day School. He
also announced that the "Home
Start" program in Pinellas
County will be augmented by
parent demonstration sessions
before each Holiday, led by edu-
cation specialists and volunteers
"Hotline facilitators" who will be
on call "to answer whatever
questions families may have

The cost for "Home Start" ia
$22.50 per child (However,
subsky by the Education Com-
mittee of the Jewish Federation
of $4.50 per subscription has
made it possible to offer the
program for just S18 per child).
"We are only able to offer "Home

limited time". Dr. Phillips
cautioned, "so please be sure and
act now so as not to be closed out
of this exciting, new project".

White House Insists Cable To
Assad Was Totally Innocent
The White House and the State
Department continue to assert
that the cable sent by President
Reagan to President Hafez Assad
of Syria last Wednesday did not
reflect any change in U.S. Middle
East policy and was not meant to
soften the criticism of Syria's
military actions in Lebanon
voiced by Secretary of State
Alexander Haig when he visited
Israel as part of his recent
Mideast tour. Haig had forcefully
condemned the "brutal" Syrian
shelling of Christian areas ir
north Lebanon.
A White House spokesman
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Airencv that the cable was
nothing more than a normal
message sent by the President to
another head of state on the
occasion of that country's
National Day of Independence.
Syria observed its Independence
Day last Thursday.
Reagan's cable noted the
"central role the Syrian people
and their leaders can play, not
only in the service of their own
nation and its independence but
in the search for a just Middle
East peace ." It expressed
Reagan'8 strong hope that the
two countries could work
together during the next year in
search of "peace, justice and
security" in the Middle East, the
White House said.
Neo-Nazi Sentenced For
Assulting a Jewish Man
PARIS (JTA) A 19-year-old neo-Nazi has been
sentenced to two years' imprisonment for assault against
a Jewish man wearing a y armulka. A Paris criminal court
found no mitigating circumstances in favor of Nicolas
Gillet who was given an additional one-year suspended
sentence and a five-year term of probation.
THE VICTIM, 40-year-old Paul Blanzi. was
awarded 20,000 francs ($4,000) for immediate medical ex-
penses and 5,800 francs ($1,200) in damages. It is one of
the severest sentences imposed in recent years by
French court on a first offender for this type of offense.

A solid endowment program
f a growing Jewish Community
akes "Cents." Cents make
lollars and dollars when
Irudently invested, provide a
edge against inflation, and a
Cable economic base on which a
jfwish Community can build and
Ian for the future.
The endowment program for
[inellis County was born out of a

ervolr to help fund future
Lpit al projects in the communi-
k. make available a ready capital
(serve in times of community or
cial emergency, and be of bene-
.. in any number of charitable
ndeavors established by the
hdowment committee, and as
Lggested by donors.
The endowment program of
Pinellas County differs from the
knnual Federation Campaign in a
[lumber of respects. These dif-
erences fall into two major
Categories: 1). The flexibility in
jking an endowment gift and
rifying tax benefits to the
nior. and 2). The permanency of
endowment fund and
nativity in grant making.
The endowment program
nakes "Cents" to the donor
cause of the varied modes of
naking an endowment gift and
tax benefits associated with
Endowment giving. Below is a
brief outline of the means that
Ian be used to make a gift to the
Endowment fund and tax benefits
sociated with the gift.
One may make an endowment
lift through a Testamentary
lequest. The bequest can be
|ither an outright gift of property
a deferred gift through a
t'stamentary Charitable
emainder Trust. The trust pro-
Isions establish a fixed percent-
Ke of the principal to be payable
| a non-charitable beneficiary
lour spouse or children) for a
Bted period of time, and the re-
linder goe&. to the Foundation.
testamentary disposition of
pperty, whether outright or de-
jnA, gives rise to certain estate
I deduction.
I The same Charitable
pmainder Trust can also be used
a gift during one's life. The
ior funds the trust with cash,
adily marketable securities or
fnw other appreciated, market-
ble asset. The donor or some
er non-charitable beneficiary
en receives annual income
ised on a fixed percentage of the
ust's principal determined on
B date the trust is created or as
ivalued annually. When the
ust terminates, the remainder
interest passes directly to the
Endowment Fund. In many
instances this type of endowment
plan yields both an immediate
income tax deduction in the year
the trust is funded, and a
charitable estate tax deduction.
An endowment plan making up
the bulk of charitable giving is
the I'hilantrhopic Fund. The fund
is set up during one's lifetime and
enables the donor to make his
philanthropy visible by estab-
lishing the fund in his name or in
honor of someone he or she
wishes to memorialize. This Fund
may be started by contributing
cash, readily marketable securi-
ties, real estate, closely held
business stock or other property
interests. The significance of this
endowment plan is that it enables
the donor to contribute to his
fund as his economic situation
warrants from year to year with
the advantage of providing a tax-
wise vehicle for disposing of
highly appreciated assets on
which substantial capital gain
taxes would normally have to be
paid. The donor not only avoids
capital gains tax, but gets an in-
come tax deduction for the fair
market value of the contribution.
Additionally the donor or his
designee may make annual rec-
ommendations regarding use of
the principal and or income for
charitable disposition. Although
the Foundation is not bound by
the donor's recommendations,
serious consideration will be
given to all requests.
A donor may wish to use Life
Insurance as a vehicle for endow-
ment giving. Depending upon the
needs in his estate plan, a donor
may either choose to continue to
own the policy and designate the
Foundation as beneficiary, or he
may choose to make an outright
gift of the policy to the Founda-
tion, wherein the Foundation
Incomes both owner and bene-
ficiary of the policy. Each gives
rise to different charitable tax
deduction consequences.
All of the aforementioned
modes of endowment giving, and
variations of the plans, give to
the donor significant tax
benefits. Many trigger immediate
income tax deductions that can
l>e carried forward for up to five
years under certain situations.
There are estate planning bene-
fits in the form of estate tax
charitable deductions, and in
reducing the size of one's taxable
estate. In many instances an
endowment gift will yield both
income tax and estate tax
benefits. The bottome line is It

make an endowment gift.
In addition to flexibility in
choosing the manner of making
an endowment gift, the endow-
ment program differs from the
annual campaign in another
The endowment program has
not been created as a substitute
for Annual Campaign Giving.
Rut funds raised during the
annual campaign are in-and-out
dollars. They are dollars that are
desperately needed to fund the
every day projects of our commu-
nity and to keep our brothers and
sisters in Israel free. Although
grants from endowed funds may
be used to supplement many
projects funded through Annual
Campaing allocations, the goal of
the Endowment Fund is to pro-
vide for social, educational, reli-
gious and other community and
charitable projects for which
there are currently no funds.
For example, the Jewish
Community Endowment Fund of
San Francisco, Marin County,
Calif., has used some of their
endowment funds for the follow-
ing projects: 1). Grant to Bureau
of Jewish Education to fund
camp scholarships of new
American and single parents; 2).
Chabad House for an emergency
grant for replacement of property
damaged in a fire; 3). American
Jewish Congress: Judah
Magness Memorial Museum to
fund an Oral History project on
Eastern European Jews in the
San Francisco Federation area;
4). Stanfor University to estab-
lish a visiting professorship in
Jewish Civilization. The list goes
on and on in all of the federated
communities that have estab-
lished endowment programs.
From emergency grants made
locally and nationally to help in
times of disaster or distress in
Jewish Communities, to estab-
lishing a program connected with
Judaism in the arts, the use for
endowment monies are endless.
The Endowment Program that
is being established will provide
the financial blocks on which the
community can build and will be
a source of funds to preserve and
enhance our cultural heritage for
future generations. It makes
"Cents" to participate in the
Pinellas County Federation's
Endowment Program.

At Jewish Family Service
Men and Depression
Common Problems Seen
You're in your fifties, fourties
or possibly thirties white,
middle class Jewish male. Maybe
you've relocated down to the
West Coast of Florida to start a
new life for you and your family.
You make your move and slowly
find out that it isn't as easy as
you thought to make it down in
Florida. Income is leas, cost of
living seems high. Your family
appears to make sacrifices, but
something tells you they're not
happy. You become depressed,
have difficulty sleeping and a
hard time getting along with
your wife.
Here at Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service, we see a great
deal of men who are presently
facing a life crisis similar to that
described above. Sometimes, men
become so depressed they are not
able to cope with everyday life
Sometimes, divorces occur and
then the men become totally lost
within themselves. They may
loose their children, their home
and their sense of identity. Mr.
Bernstein. Executive Director of
Gulf Coast Jewish Family Serv-
ice, says. "It is usually more dif-
ficult for men to come forward
and admit they need help to put
their lives together, whether or
not a divorce occurs. Usually, it's
the woman who immediately
seeks out help." Mr. Bernstein
went on to say that, "male mid-

life crisis and depression is very
common when situational life
changes occur. With the help of a

Dutch Foreign Minister Back
From Giving Israel a Lecture
Foreigh Minister Christoph van
der Klaauw has returned from his
visits to Syria and Lebannon, the
most provocative aspect of which
was his twohour meeting in Da-
mascus with Palestine Liberation
Organization Chief Yasir Arafat
and his PLO lieutenants. The
Dutch diplomat, who made that
contact in his capacity of chair-
man of the Council of Ministers
of the European Economic
Community (EEC) which seeks
to have the PLO "associated"
with the Middle East peace
process, was accompanied by a
delegation from the Netherlands
Foreign Ministry.
the U.S. and the Soviet Union.
Van der Klaauw also met with
President Elias Sarkis of Leba-
non and visited, as Foreign Min-
ister, the Dutch contingent of the
United Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL). He praised
the Dutch soldiers and, on his
departure from Beirut, strongly
criticized Israeli attacks on south
Lebanon. A four-member Dutch
parliamentary delegation, which
also visited Lebanon at the same
time, urged Israel to restrain the
activities of Maj. Saad Haddad's
Christian militia.
Van der Klaauw had little to
say to reporters about his con-
versation with Arafat except that
it had been useful but yielded nc
new elements. A PLO spokesman
was less reticent. He told
reporters in Damascus that
Arafat had informed van der
Klaauw that the PLO will not
negotiate on the basis of United
Nations Security Council Resolu-
tion 242 and that it is not
prepared to recognize Israel even
if it withdraw to its pre-196'J
ACCORDING to the spokes-
man, Arafat is willing to accept
Israel only within the borders al-
lotted to it by the UN General
Assembly's partition resolution
of November 29. 1947 and only if
all Palestinians are given the
right to return to their homeland
in what was Palestine at that
time. Arafat was said to expect
little from the European Middle
East initiative but favored
reviving the Geneva conference '

Pepper Urges Battle of the Budget
Rep. Claude Pepper ID.. Fla.l has called on the
'i American people to "raise questions" about th
i lUagan Administration's proposals to reduce
\ funds to the needy as a means of balancing tht
I ftderal budget.
Addressing a combined meeting in Washington
3 of the B'nai Brith Community 'Volunteer Ser-
| vices and Israel Commissions, Pepper assailed
what the called "too much emphasis on tax cuts."
Pepper, who is chairman of the House Select
Committee on Aging and is himself 80, was
honored with the B'nai Brith Chai Award for his
many years of dedicated service to the nation,
particularly in the fields of aging and crime pre-
vention and on behalf of the State of Israel."

being honored "for taking the initiative to correct -
a major injustice in American society where the
costs for private education are not recognized."
Senators Moynihan and Packwood are spon-
soring a bill which, when it becomes fully ef-
fective, would grant a tax credit of up to $500. or
50 percent of the total education cost for students
in elementary and secondary schools, as well as in
colleges and graduate institutions.
Nathaniel Saperstein. president of the National
Council of Young Israel, has called for all Ortho-
dox organizations "to temporarily set aside their
differences in order to formulate a unified
strategy to counteract Reform and Conservative
attempts to gain official recognition in the Israeli
religious establishment."
Saperstein issued the call during his presi-
dential address to 1.200 participants at the
National Council of Young Israel dinner at the
Sheraton Centre in New York. He described the
prospect of the Reform and Conservative groups
gaining such recognition as "a potential disaster
for the Jewish people and the religious com-
munity in Israel." and offered the facilities of the
National Council of Young Israel for the purposes
of a meeting of representatives of all Orthodox
groups to map a common strategy in response.

The British Tourist Authority has assured the
American Jewish Congress that it will not dis-
tribute a travel book describing a vacation in a
simulated Nazi prison camp until the publication
is altered to eliminate the information about the
bizarre holiday.

Alternative Holiday Catalogue. Sir Henry Mark-
ing, chairman of the Authority, apologized for the
"offense" caused by the camp entry and promised
to review the agency s use of the book, which de-
scribes offbeat vacations in Britain.
A spokesman for the Tourist Authority's U.S.

to have the information taken out of the book
before the Authority would distribute copies.
Shimon Peres, chairman of the Labor Party,
disclosed last week that Guinea asked to become
a protectorate of Israel in 1960. The matter was
kept secret until last week. The exact date of tht
affair was not given, but the daily lla'antz said it
took place when Peres was Deputy Defense
Minister in the Cabinet of Prime Minister David
Ben-Gurion. Guinea had become independent in
1958, ahead of other French Colonies In West
Africa, and its relations with the former colonial
power had gone very chilly.

Coordinated by Selma Wein-
traub, a League vice-president
who is serving as chairman of the
project for the League, a corps of
top leaders was recently flown
into New York for briefing by the
producers and promoters of the
novel event. In every major Jew-
ish center on the continent, they
will be encouraging the purchase
of tickets, and arranging pre-
screening parties and other spe
cial promotions.
Since the Seminary's Israel
school will be the direct bene-
ficiary of every ticket sold
through the League, all arms of
the Conservative Movement are
being circularized for their co-
operation. Fourteen other or-
ganizations are also at work on
ticket salt's, each to benefit an
educational agency in Israel with
which it is associated.
Checks for purchases to benefit
our Conservative Movement
institution should be drawn to
Women's League for Con-
servative Judaism, and mailed to
