Rabin Okays Arab Bank
[JERUSALEM (JTA> -
f tense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
nfirmed in the Knesset that he
* approved the opening of a

context of his and Premier
mon Peres' determination to
Iprove the quality of life and

tion. The Blue and White Ball
has become one of the most anti-
cipated and exciting events in
Pinellas County. I hope we can
build upon the foundation of past
years and make this Ball the best
and most successful one in our
history."
Knesset Moves
To Erase Kahane's Immunity
Rbin said the bank would
operate under the ck.se super-
vision of the Bank of Israel as
do all banks in Israel and
would pose "no security danger.
He was challenged by MK
Gerehon Shafat of the Tehjya
Party who claimed that a raiee
tiSan bank would encourage
Unds toward "splitting Judaea
and Samaria away from isrew.
By DAVID LANDAU
And GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)
The Knesset's House
Committee and the Min-
istry of Justice are moving
on parallel tracks toward
swift action that could de-
prive Rabbi Meir Kahane,
leader of the extremist
Kach Party, of his Knesset
immunity and open the way
to prosecute him for racist
incitement against Arab
citizens of Israel and Arabs
on the West Bank and
Gaza.
The Justice Ministry is putting
final touches to a new law against
"racism" which it plans to
submit to parliament in the next
few days. The draft bill was
reported to have been circulated
to other ministries for amend-
ments before a final version is
presented to the legislators for
enactment.
THE HOUSE Committee,
meanwhile, continued its
discussions on a motion by MK
Yossi Sarid requesting the
Attorney General to propose to
the Knesset that Kahane's
immunity be waived. That is the
procedure required by law before
the Knesset can vote to strip a
member of immunity. Other MKs
are studying the Criminal Code
for grounds to prosecute Kahane
should he lose his immunity.
At present there is no specific
law against racism in the
Criminal Code. Offenders can be
prosecuted, however, for
disturbing the peace or in-
citement.
Sarid, who quit the Labor
Party in protest against the
Labor-Likud unity government
agreement and joined the Civil
Rights Movement (CRM), said
he based his motion on Kahane's
most recent utterance in praise of
unknown Jewish terrorists who
killed one Arab and wounded 10
others in a rocket attack on an
Arab bus in Jerusalem.
SECURITY FORCES are
searching for the terrorists who
said their attack was "revenge"
for the Arab murder of two Jew-
ish hikers on the West Bank.
Kahane declared, "May the
hands which did this be strength-
ened ... it was a brave and noble
act." Sarid said Kahane's con-
gratulations to the terrorists as
"proud Jews" constituted incite-
ment to violence or possibly
incitement to rebellion.
Police Minister Haim Barlev
said in a statement to the
Knesset that "There are those
among us who believe that
counter-terror is not moral but is
nevertheless efficient. But this is
a stupid belief that has been
disproven. Counter-terror does
not prevent terror but rather
feeds it."
Barlev said legislation should
be enacted outlawing racist
statements and pledged that the
police would find "the answer" to
deal with those elements "who
play with fire with a terrible
irresponsibility."
LABOR MK Edna Solodar,
who joined Sarid in urging
mesauros against Kahane, ac-
cused the Kach leader and his
supporters of ignoring the
distinctions between the equal
rights guaranteed to Arab
citizens of Israel and terrorists.
Likud MK Michael Eitan
suggested that there was no need
for new legislation because
Kahane could be stripped of
immunity under existing law for
incitement to mutiny.
The House Committee, mean-
while, remained divided over
whether its deliberations remain
open to press coverage. Sarid was
joined by MK Geula Cohen of the
rightwing Tehiya Party in ob-
jecting to open sessions on
grounds that as far as Kahane is
concerned, any publicity is good
publicity.
But a majority of the commit-
tee, including members from
opposite ends of the political
spectrum, maintained that open
debate was "educationally
useful." According to MK Ronnie
Milo of Likud's Liberal Party
wing, young people should see
that Kahane and Kahanism is
isolated and ostracized by the
"entire responsible political
community."
THE KNESSET called on all
Israelis to refrain from racial
incitement and support for
terrorist activities. It adopted a
resolution stating that
parliament shared in the grief ot
the families of the Arabs killed or
injured in the bus attack and the
families of the slain Jewish
hikers.

Menorah Manor Building Fund
Passes 80 Percent
Ted P. Wittner, Board Chair-
man of Menorah Manor, recently
announced that the Capital
Building Fund has gone over the
80 percent mark of its S6 million
campaign. "We are very pleased
with the response on behalf of our
elderly, though there is still much
more to be accomplished,"
declared Wittner in describing
the progress of the single largest
fund raising effort in this com-
munity.
Menorah Manor, sponsored by
the Jewish Communities of
Central West Florida, is the only
philanthropic Jewish Home on
the West Coast following the
diatary laws of Kashruth, with
emphasis given to Jewish reli-
gious and cultural observances.
The Home, which will serve 120
residents, should be opening in
early 1985.
President Irwin Miller issued a
commimiiv-wide appeal for even
Ted. P. Wittner
broader financial support in the
weeks ahead. "In only a few short
months, Menorah Manor will
truly become a reality! We (the
Jewish Communities) will finally
have our 'Home for Jewish
Living.' He stressed that WOW
is the time, and a unique oppor-
tunity and privilege, for each
community member to join those
who have already committed to
this much needed service. "Only
through the support of each
family can the campaign be com-
pleted by the time the first res-
idents join the Menorah Manor
family."
There are a number of dedica-
tion opportunities available as a
way of providing a lasting tribute
for generations to come.

Thanksgiving The Power of Faith,
Not Faith In Power
By RABBI
ARTHUR I. BASEMAN
The name of the holiday is
"Thanksgiving," derived from
two words, "thanks" and
"giving." That provides us with
an interesting paradox, for we
usually associate the holiday
with what we receive, with what
is bestowed upon us the boun-
ties of nature, the blessings we
accept, the things which elicit our
gratitude.
And yet, the holiday is not
called "Thanks-receiving," or
"Thanks-taking," but "Thanks-
giving." And that is correct. For
"thanks" and "giving" are
inextricably interconnected.
There can be no "thanks"
without "giving." To experience
thankfulness genuinely, fully,
and profoundly is possible only
through giving.
The giving of ourselves to each
other, most certainly, is the high-
est form of this expression our
Rabbi Baseman
love, our strength, our commit-
ment, our intellect, our faith.
Our communal needs are
greater and our responsibilities
are global, and it is the power of
faith and not faith in power alone
whicn will enable us to attain a
higher perspective and realm of
achievement. A thankless person
has cut himself off from one of
the great joys of being alive.
Many years ago when Rudyard
Kipling was one of the most
popular writers of his time, it was
reported that he received 10
shillings for every word he wrote.
Some students at Oxford Uni-
versity, less impressed with his
success than they might have
been, sent Kipling 10 shillings
with the request that he send
them "one of your very best
words." He cabled back:
"Thanks."
"Thanksgiving" it is. For each
one of us. our thanks result from
our giving of ourselves. Small
wonder, then, that our Jewish
tradition affirms that in the Mes-
sianic Era, the only prayers that
will remain are the prayers of
Thanksgiving.

Bokor and Miller Elected as New
Officers on TOP Foundation Board
The TOP Jewish Foundation
held its annual meeting Monday,
Oct. 8 at Bentley's Restaurant in
Clearwater. TOP is the en-
dowment gift development arm
of the Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County as well as for the
other participating communities
of Tampa and Orlando.
The TOP Jewish Foundation
was organized in December, 1980,
as a cost-effective means for each
Federation to operate its own
endowment and planned gift
program. Over the past four
years the TOP endowment
program has generated close to
$1 million in endowment gifts for
the benefit of the Pinellas Jewish
Federation. As a result, several
hundred thousand dollars in
grants and distributions have
been made to the Federation,
Menorah Manor, the constituent
agencies and for special
educational and cultural projects
in both the Pinellas Jewish and
non-Jewish community.
At the annual meeting trustees
were appointed by each Federa-
tion president in accordance with
the TOP bylaws. Saul Schochter,
president of the Pinellas Federa-
Book Review
Bruce Bokor
tion, appointed Charles
Rutenberg, Reva Kent and Len
Seligman to serve for a one-year
term and Bruce Bokor and Irwin
Miller to serve for two-year
terms.
In addition to the appointment
of trustees, officers were elected
by the board. Bruce Bokor was
elected to the office of the vice
Irwin Miller
president of development and
Irwin Miller was elected
secretary. Other officers elected
at the TOP meeting were: Les
Barnett, Tampa, president; Bill
Kalish, Tampa, vice president of
investments; Jack Oppenheimer,
Orlando, vice president of legal

Orlando, treasurer.
The Return of Mr. Hollywood
Reflections on the Birth of a
new Sammy Click of What
Makes Sammy Run. Reviewed by
Louise Ressler.
The depression years produced
a number of new, ambitious
authors, but being accepted and
published was a different matter.
Editors did not want fiction
themes to revolve around Jewish
backgrounds and their intrinsic
problems. It was generally
believed that Gentile, as well as
Jewish readers, were prone to
identify more readily with
Gentile Americans. During this
period of the 30's, many Jewish
authors hit the bestseller list,
won National Book Awards, and
produced novels and plays,
desirable not only for pubUcation,
but also for stage and screen
production.
At the end of the 30's Nazism
began to rear its ugly head and
provided subject matter. College
youth started to search for their
Jewish "roots," and certain
authors, proudly feeling a need to
assert their Jewishness gave an
answer to anti-Semitic stor-
mings. Herman Wouk gave us

and many others. Irwin Shaw,
recently deceased master of the
writing art, presented a young
Jewish man with few Jewish
inclinations, who learned that he
resented any slurs enough to
fight and kill for a principle in
The Young Lions. The Jewish
psyche is all-encompassing in
emotion. It is manifold in its
feeling tones; it can reflect guilt
and hate (re the Holocaust), or
fear (in relation to anti-
Semitism), or pride (re the Jewish
homeland), or even a tinge of
elation and buoyancy (on a visit
to the Western Wall).
We have some prototypes in
fiction who have made history:
David Levinsky in The Rise of
David Levinsky by Abraham
Cohen, Larry Bogen in / Can Get
It For You Wholesale by Jerome
Weidman, and the immortal
Sammy Glick in What Makes
Sammy Run by Budd Schulberg.
Now in current fiction there is
a new satire of just such a
character. Larry Lazar is a
ruthless, contemporary director-
writer in The Return of Mr.
Hollywood by Josh Greenfield.
He is returning to Brooklyn for
the funeral of his mother Sally
Lazar, who is as outrageously
shocking as Sophie Portnoy. This
forceful woman in life, in her
bullying, uneducated way has
imposed her will so completely on
her son Larry, that he has spent
his whole life unconsciously
fighting her in a desire to please
her. And now, as the sto/y
progresses, she still rules from
the grave. Larry is met by his
uncle Irving, a wealthy member
of his family. Uncle Irving is
more involved with the price of
the funeral than the loss of his
sister; he is both a likeable and a
humorous character.
The occasion of the burial
forces Larry into some self-
analysis, and the action reverts
back and forth from the present
to the past. He is honest in his
self-evaluation, aware of his
many imperfections, anxious to
improve on his bad habits, but
unable to do so. We meet some of
the people in his past.
One is Mira, a former girl-
friend, a sculptress.
Sidney Stein1 is one whose
friendhsip he treasured. Stem
invites Lazar to his New Jersey
home for dinner, and ends up
abusing him to the point of
physical violence. They are
having a heated discussion over
the authorship of a recent literary
work, The Merry Widowers.
Sidney Stein insists that it was a
collaboration effort between
them, but Larry Lazar denies this
forcefully, claiming it to be his
idea and his alone.
Allen, also a former contact,
arranges a meeting after the
funeral with Lazar to try to
borrow $5,000, making sexual
advances toward him which
Lazar rejects totally.
His new contact is Michell,
who turns out to be a lesbian, but
seduces him to get him to read a
play she has written. All these
people are hitting upon him in
order to gain some personal
advantages.
Larry Lazar has entered the
world of fiction as a ruthless,
clumsy, greedy self-appointed
artist. In his relationships he is a
hustler, and uses people to
further his own ends. Everything
and everybody appeals to his arid
mind as a possible theme for a
movie or a script. He even en-
visions this, his mother's death
and burial, as a natural material
for a future film, with himself as
the lead.
Larry Lazar is definitely a
philistine, a go-getter, but not
without personal charm. He, his
wife Jane, and their two children
are a very modern family, living
in true Hollywood style. He is an
update of today's screen
producer, representing a new
type, the Bi-Coastal man.
The main thesis of The Return
of Mr. Hollywood is Larry's
relationship with his mother, his
inability to win her approval, and
her dominance of him. Although
it was her funeral he was at-
tending, his memories of her are
so numerous and comprehensive
and so vital, that they almost
become real to him. Any involve-
ment with his mother produced
guilt on his part. Sally Lazar
certainly had been the typical
American Jewish mother.
Although the past was over, and
any change in reaction irre-
trievable, now in death, she still
produced the same effect by
memories. She had carried
everything to extremes during
her lifetime, by overeating, being
too protective, even over-
indulgent in a sporadic way.
Josh Greenfeld has scored
again. After Harry and Tonto
which won him acclaim, he now
makes a giant step forward. Mr.
Hollywood is going places.

Combined Jewish Appeal
Campaign chair. In making the
announcement, Mrs. Greenberg
commented, "We are indeed
fortunate to have people with the
Malkins' experience and
dedication heading this major
effort. I'm sure Jean and Julius
will once again make sure that
Super Sunday is the huge success
it has been in the past, and that
they will be able to count on the
cooperation and support of the
entire Jewish community,
especially the Jewish Community
Center, the synagogues and the
various Jewish organizations."
Super Sunday, which will be
held on Jan. 27, will involve
hundreds of volunteer telephone
solicitors in an effort to secure
contributions for the Combined
Jewish Appeal.
The Malkins have announced
that there will be a meeting of
synagogue, agency, and organi-
zation leadership on Sunday,
Nov. 18 at the Jewish Com-
munity Center at 10:30 a.m. to
discuss the important role they
will play in recruiting volunteers
for Super Sunday. Please call the
JCC at 344-5795 to let us know
you will be attending.
Local agencies, such as the
Jewish Community Center, Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service,
and the Jewish Day School are
recipients of monies raised in the
annual CJA campaign, as are
Jews in need in Israel and around
the world.
Federation Moves
To New Offices
The Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County has moved its
offices to a new location, an-
nounced Paul Levine, executive
director of the Federation. The
new offices are located at 301
South Jupiter Avenue, across the
street from the Golda Meir
Center which previously housed
the Federation. The new facility
is leased to the Federation rent-
free by the Golda Meir Center.
The relocation effort was under
the direction of Henry P. Morris,
who coordinated the renovation
of the new facility, the securing of
the materials, and the physical
move. Levine expressed the
appreciation of the Federation to
Morris for his tireless efforts and
for insuring a smooth transition

NEW YORK (JTA) -

WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The United States and Israel
have agreed to cooperative re-
search projecta on oil shale ex-
traction and the conversion of
coal for alternative fuels.
The U.S. will provide $620,000
for the projects which call for the
exchange of technical informa-
tion and personnel. The agree-
ments are a result of a pledge in
December, 1983 by Energy
Secretary Donald Hodel and Yit-
zhak Modai, who was then
Israel's Minister for Energy and
Infrastructure and is now
Finance Minister.
The two countries signed an
agreerrr>nt last June and details
of the agreement were put
together by U.S. and Israeli tech-
nical officials last month. The
Hebrew University and the
Weizmann Institute will conduct
projects in concert with similar
activities underway in the U.S.
"These agreements reflect the
shared commitment to cooperate
in scientific and technical explo-
ration that exists between our
two countries,"Hodel said. He
noted that the agreements "will
permit the U.S. to share in the
creative oil shale research already
underway in Israel and to apply
the knowledge we learn to both
the oil shales and, potentially, the
high sulfur bituminous coals we
have in abundance in this
country."

A total of 31 agencies,
volunteer groups and
congregations picked up alloca-
tions for their needy constituents
and distributed the kosher cheese
during the week of Sept. 17,
Shayovich said.
Jews in Monsey, New Square,
Soring Valley and Monroe, in
upper New York State, also were
among the recipients of the
kosher cheese in the largest
distribution since the start in
1982 of the federal government's
program of surplus food distribu-
tion, according to Rabbi David
Cohen, Coordinating Council
executive director.
The cheese, packed in five-
pound boxes, was produced by
the World Cheese Co. and in-
cluded a shipment of specially
supervised Cholov Yisrael cheese
for the Hasidic and yeshiva com-
munities, Cohen said.
He said the shipment of kosher
cheese is the only such distribu-
tion in the United States, adding
that a major problem "is a cost
differential between kosher and
regular surplus cheese that must
be absorbed by the participating
General Services in having this
additional cost underwritten."
He said other elected officials had
also been "most supportive."

IRAS.YOUDOVIN

What impact will President
Reagan's victory have on
American-Israeli relations?
Probably about the same
impact had Walter Mondale won.
Or Harold Stassen!
Israel was not a campaign
issue, which is bow it should be.
Our country's support for the
Jewish State is a bi-partisan
commitment that transcends
party politics.
This is not to say that
America's commitment is always
as strong and unambiguous as it
should be. Mr. Reagan might
have been vulnerable for
breaking his 1980 campaign
promise to transfer our embassy
to Jerusalem. But Mr. Mondale
couldn't raise the issue, having
himself been part of an adminis-
tration that broke the same
promise. This, too, is a reality of
American-Israeli relations.
Like all American presidents
since Harry Truman, Mr. Reagan
has compiled a mixed record on
Israel.
The Ronald Reagan who
several weeks ago practiced
unabashed public hugging with
Shimon Peres in the White House
Rose Garden is the same presi-
dent who introduced a highly
controversial West Bank
proposal without first consulting
Israel.
The Ronald Reagan who
recently authorized a high
technology transfer that will get
Israel's K'fir Jet Fighter
program off the ground is the
same president who used the full
power of his office to push the
Saudi AWACs sale through a
reluctant Senate, and played
hardball on the question of
shipping sophisticated weaponry
to Jordan until King Hussein's
pique queered the deal.
It is likely that this pattern of
ups and downs will continue into
the second Reagan term, par-
ticularly on the question of ar-
ming Arab nations Washington
deems as "moderates," although
all of them, with the exeption of
Egypt, are still technically at war
with Israel.
No American president can
ignore the threat Jordan, Egypt
and the conservative Gulf states
face from Libya and Iran. The
United States bears a moral
responsibility for supplying
weapons to these countries for
their legitimate defense require-
ments.
These shipments, however
justifiable they may be on other
grounds, do represent a danger to
Israel. Distances in the Middle
East are so small as to often
obscure the difference between
"offensive" and "defensive"
weapons.
And although Washington
invariably keeps Israel a step
ahead of her enemies, the cost ot
competing in an arms race
against oil-rich opponents adds
catastrophically to Israels
already beleaguered economy.
Nevertheless, Jerusalem fully
appreciates that Israel and the
United States do not exist in a
vacuum. So long as proposed
arms deals fall into the category
of legitimate defense require-
ments," Israeli protests are
muted to a docile, pro forma
level.
Real stress will come only if the
president seeks to supply Arab
states with weapons that go
beyond this criterion, as hap-
pened with the AWACs. A Saudi
official put that episode into
perspective when h said, "You
Americans are only arms mer-
chants and we pay cash." We
shall see.
The other potential flashpoint
in American-Israeli relations
the West Bank may prove less
of a problem than some anti-
cipate, even if Mr. Reagan seeks
to revive the controversial Peace
Plan bearing his name.
When Mr. Reagan first in-
troduced the proposal in Sep-
tember, 1982. both Israel and the
Arabs rejected it out of hand. But
Prime Minister Begin's swift and
absolute rejection has never been
supported by a clear consensus
within Israel, or among leaders of
Diaspora Jewry.
The prevailing view sees the
plan as flawed, but neverthek*
deserving of more careful 2
sideration as a possible basis f
negotiations. Prime Minisu,
Peres expressed this perspectiw
during his visit to Washing
last month. 8W'
It seems virtually certain U-
Mr. Reagan will seek to revive his
initiative. Several weeks ago in
Tel Aviv, Samuel Lewis, our
extraordinarily able and popular
ambassador, raised somt
eyebrows by criticizing S
government's timing in 5
troducing the proposal ai
"abysmal."
But Mr. Lewis was not taking
an undiplomatic flier. The not-so-
hidden message was that while'
the package's wrapping may
have been faulty, its contents are
basically sound and worthy of a
second look.
When will the package again
be on the counter? Possibly quit*
soon (as part of Mr. Reagan's
Inaugural Address?); but more
likely the president will wait until
after Israel initiates its with-
drawal from Lebanon, so that the
Israeli Cabinet can give its full
nl 11 nt ion to the West Bank.
When it comes, the prediction
here is that Israel will at very
least withhold judgment pending
a full study of the proposal!
details. This will leave the field
open for an Arab response. If
King Hussein shows any interest,
we could be on our way toward a
breakthrough.
Let's hope and pray for that.

Children's Program News
Children in our Before-After
School Program enjoyed a special
outing on Oct. 10 when they all
went bowling! After a movie
which showed us the basic moves

Although no strikes were rep-
orted, we feel we have the basic
ideas now and are ready for our
next trip to Crossroads Lanes.
Thanks to the cooperation of
the weather, our children are still
enjoying swimming three times a
week in our pool. On Wednes-
days, the children eagerly await
the arrival of Marily Diehl, our
ceramics teacher, who always has
an interesting project for them all
to work on. You would be really
impressed with the talents of all
of our children.
Our Succoth Program was
made more enjoyable for all part-
cipants thanks to the beautiful
decorations made by these
children. Among the many items
they have been working on are
fruit mobiles, hanging apples and
oranges and fruit collages. All of
these helped make our sukkah
especially beautiful this year and
continue to brighten up our halls

GCJFS Helps Jewish College Students
IBERNICE BRESSLER
following letter was
by the mother of one of
cipients of an interest free
Bern ice:
^ave never met you, but I
though I know you and
nown you for years. You
ust called with the wonder -
of more education
for our son. Needless to
vas overwhelmed with the
news and lost my com-
Please forgive me for cry-
I being so emotional, but it
en very hard times for us
now. I just can't find the worlds
to thank you enough for all your
kind, wonderful help. I truly hope
and pray that some day we can
repay you. May we wish you a
healthy Happy New Year. Thank
you again from the bottom of my
heart."
Not only do these beautiful and
kind words speak for themselves,
they also reflect the sentiments of
all those families whom GCJFS
assists in our determination to do
everything possible on behalf of
those students who need our
help, for without this assistance
many worthy young people
might be denied educational op-
portunities. Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service assumes the role
of advocate for each applicant.
This service, however, would be
unavailable were it not for the Dr.
Sidney N. Trockey Loan and the
committee of dedicated and con-
cerned community leaders who
review and evaluate all applica-
tions. Nor would our loan
program be possible without
funding by the Jewish Children's
Service, Atlanta, Ga.
Anyone interested in obtaining
information on how to apply for
either of these college loans,
please call Bernice Bressler at

MANALAPAN TOWNSHIP,
NJ. Some 1,000 people in-

participated in an interfaith rally
and demonstration of solidarity
that concluded with cleanup
operations at a synagogue
defaced last month with anti-
Semitic slogans and damaged
when a tractor was driven
through the building's side.
Three youths have been
arrested for the anti-Semitic
attack on Beth Shalom Synago-
gue here, whose spiritual leader,
Rabbi Ira Rothstein, was m-
atrumental in organizing the
rally. The synagogue had been
open for about one month when
the youths allegedly desecrated
the exterior walls with swastikas
and other anti-Semitic graffiti
and drove a tractor used for
landscaping the synagogue
grounds through a side of the
structure, leaving a gaping hole.

Haber. honorary executive vice
president of the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee,
which he served for 36 years, died
in Akron, Ohio, on Nov. 3 at the
age of 81, the JDC announced
here Sunday.
Haber joined the JDC staff in
1947 as director for Germany
where he developed programs for
more than 200,000 displaced
persons. They were instrumental
in the rescue, rehabilitation and
eventual emigration of tens of
thousands of Holocaust sur-

of Soviet Jews permitted to leave the country. Shown at the

to go to Amman for a meeting of

Replying to questions by MKs
Matityahu Peled and Musham-

regards the Palestine Liberation
Organization as a terrorist or-
ganization and therefore cannot
permit West Bank residents to
attend a meeting designed to
further the interests of the PLO.

Katyusha Rocket Hits
Beit Shean Valley
TEL AVIV The remains of a
107 mm. Katyusha rocket found
near Kibbutz Beth Yosef in the
Beit Shean valley south of Lake
Tiberias Sunday indicated the
source of two explosions heard in
the region Saturday night. There
were no casualties or damage.
Israeli soldiers searched for
more rocket debris and Jordanian
soldiers were seen engaged in a
similar search on their side ot the
Jordan River. Israel military
sources said terrorists apparently
infiltrated Arab Legion lines and
crossed the river into Israel, fired
two rockets and fled.
The sources said the Jordan-
ians appear to be continuing their
efforts to prevent terrorist at-
tacks on Israel from Jordanian
soil.

For many people, the first moment they think about a
funeral and its related costs is when they have to. But by
then, they may be neither emotionally nor financially
equipped to deal with the situation.
To eliminate this problem, more and more families
are coming to us today for information on pre-arranged
funerals and pre-paid plans. One such monetary plan is
called a funeral trust agreement, by which the money
allocated in trust, which is deposited in an insured

tended by representatives of

comparative advantage will
increasingly be innovation. .
Israel may not be rich in natural
resources, but it is blessed with
the ingenuity, intelligence, and
strong will of its people. With
that and the pn_
technology, Israel can i
enlarge its economy and f
some of the highest
have for the nation."

LICENSED &INSUB
By KEVIN FREEMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Wealeyan Student Assembly has
voted to provide a campus
student group at Wesleyan Uni-
versity with the $2,000 it had re-
quested from the student activ-
ities budget for a proposed ap-
pearance at the Middletown.
Conn., campus of militant Black
Muslim leader Louis Farrakhan
of the Chicago-based Nation of
Islam group.
After meeting for two-and-a-
half hours, the WSA approved by
a vote of 14-to-10 the funds for
Ujaama. a black student group.
The vote waa on the entire
budget of more than 1260,000 for
some 84 Wealeyan student
groups. It will provide Ujaama
with $1,000 toward a Farrakhan
appearance and another $1,000 aa
loan, which could be repaid
from proceeds from the event.
Ujaama baa yet to issue a
formal statement to the press or
react to the WSA vote. They
have still not indicated whether
or not they will issue a formal
invitation to Farrakhan, whose
anti-Semitic utterances during
the Democratic Presidential
primaries caused an uproar
throughout the country.
The WSA vote followed several
weeks of controversy which
peaked with the student body
voting to reject a referendum on
the entire student budget
proposals because of the Farrak-
han allocations. The budget was
then brought back to committee
where the WSA issued an ad-
visory opinion urging that the
committee retain the funds for
Ujaama, thus overriding the
popular opinion of the student
body as expressed in the referen-
dum's outcome.
