Embassy a receipt for the money.
The money was also intended.
Grimstad stated, 'for use in
similar humanitarian projects I
may undertake." He further
reported that his contact with the
Saudis "in previous years" had
been Adel M. Jamal whom he
described as a first or second
secretary at the Embassy.
IN FILING as an agent.
Grimstad described himself as an
"historian and writer." He said
his work for the Saudis would
include "historical research into
all aspects of the Zionist colonial
incursion into Palestine" and
"exposing Zionist imperialism."
One objective: a screenplay,
teleplay or book directed
"primarily to students."
Grimstad is a former managing
editor of White Power, the

must be made exclusively by the
citizens of the sovereign State of
Israel. The only way to achieve
peace is through direct negotia-
tions between the parties con-
cerned.
American Jews categorically
repudiate any suggestion that
peace can be secured through the
imposition of a settlement,
whether the terms are dictated by
(Egyptian) President (Anwar)
Sadat or by friendly powers
which arrogate to themselves the
right to act paternalistic-ally
towards Israel."
Wurzburger pointed out that
American Jews have every right
to express responsible dissent
with respect to Israeli policies
but they have no right to exert
any form of pressure which might
lead to the adoption of policies
which, from Israel's perspective,
are detrimental to her viability as
a free and democratic State."
TURNING TO the issues of
Jewish community life, Wurz-
burger sharply criticized "the
elected officials of religious and
secular Jewish organizations who
abdicate their sacred respon-
sibilities and have entrusted
major policy decisions to
professionals who seem to
function autonomously without
Jay involvement."
He charged that "these
professional civil servants'
formulate policies, allocate
budgets, distribute funds and in
general orient the ideological
posture of their organization in a
manner which may not reflect the
feelings of a majority of their
membership.
In order to capture the
confidence, of the Jewish com-
munity.'' Wurzburger continued,
Jewish elected leaders must
reassume responsibility for the
policies of their organization and
be responsive to the demo-
cratically expressed opinions of
their membership.
Day art's London Trip
Still on for This Month
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan will go to
London later this month to
resume peace talks with
Egypt despite the Israeli
cabinet's announcement this
week that Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat's latest Mideast
peace plan was "completely
unacceptable."
Cabinet Secretary Arieh
Naor said that the Israeli
delegation to London, in
addition to Dayan, would be
led by Israeli Attorney
General Ariel Barak and
Foreign Ministry legal adviser
Meir Rosenne. Egypt will be
represented by Foreign
Minister Mohammed Ibrahim
Kamel and his aides, and the
United States will send
Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance and top State
Department officials.
PRIME MINISTER Mena-
chem Begin said that Sadat's
plan, which calls for Israeli with-
drawal from the West Bank and
the Gaza Strip, "cannot by their
nature lead to the establishment
of peace."
Naor said the ministers
deliberately avoided a formal
rejection of the plan and decided
instead to brand it as "unaccept-
able" in order to assure that

200 Expected at First Women's
International Conference
NEW YORK More than 200
Jewish women leaders from
throughout the non-communist
world are expected to participate
in the first International Jewish
Women's Conference beginning
in Amsterdam on September 7
and ending 14 days later in
Israel.
The two-week assembly, co-
sponsored by the United Jewish
Appeal Women's Division and
the Women's Division of Keren
Hayesod. will study the effects of
the Holocaust on the Dutch
Jewish community and the
rebirth of Jewish life in Israel
over the past 30 years, focusing
on the role of the Jewish leader in
her community, according to
Carol Stern. Missions Chairman
of UJA Women's Division.
"The conference originates in
Amsterdam to commemorate the
spirit of Anne Frank, and
culminates in Israel to demon-
strate the continuity of the
Jewish people. Women leaders
from around the world will ob-
serve the impact of modern
Dutch and Israeli women on their
communities." Mrs. Stern said.
Through an interchange of ideas
and information, we believe
Jewish women's leadership
throughout the world will be
strengthened."
In Amsterdam, the Conference
will welcome the Sabbath by
incorporating the shabbat ex-
perience of every culture
represented in an international
service. A briefing by Judith
Bellifante. Director of the Dutch
Jewish Museum, will prepare the
conference members for their tour
of the Amsterdam Jewish
community.
A special feature of the
Amsterdam portion of the
Conference will take place on
Sunday morning. September 10.
when the participants will
reenact Anne Frank's last day.
The group will assemble at the
"House on the Prinsengracht,"
Anne's hiding place, and then
walk to the Hollandse
Schowburg. the Dutch Jewish
Theatre used by the Nazis as a
transportation center. They will
then board buses to the deten-
tion-transfer camp. Westerbork.
the last stop before the death
camps of Eastern Europe. At
Westerbork, they will be ac-
companied by members of the
Dutch Jewish community and
walk the last several yards to a
unique monument, a section of
railroad tracks, preserved by the
Dutch people in memory of the
100.000 Dutch Jews killed in the
camps.
The next day the conference
will travel to Israel and resume
its study of Jewish life through
the eyes of Israeli women leaders.
Conference participants will
meet with women Knesset
members, visit homes in im-
poverished areas and. in en-
counter sessions with Israeli
women, discuss the health, social
and education problems they
face. A special highlight includes
participation in a new educa-
tional program sponsored by the
University of Haifa, called
"Upgrade Leadership." which
seeks to upgrade communal
leadership in development towns.
In reviewing the extensive
agenda planned for the Inter-
national Conference, Mrs. Stern
said. "'We want to visibly
demonstrate on two continents
that Anne was prophetic when
she wrote in her diary, 'I want to
live on, even after death.' "
Correction
The June 30th edition of
the Floridian erroneously
reported the "Because
Someone Cared" column
would not be printed during
the summer months due to
the vacation of Executive
Director, Stephen Levitt.
The press release should
have read, the "Because
Someone Cared" column
seen regularly in this paper
will not appear through the
summer months and will
start on a regular basis in
September.
Mr. Levitt will not be on
vacation until September.

are misquoted or quoted out of
context. The entry for Adolf
Hitler describes his writings and
speeches as examples of
"moderation."
Listing Hitler as a "20th
Century German statesman,"
(irimstad calls him "a visionary"
whose "name and the fictitious
'Six Million' he is supposed to
have killed will even be installed
in the Talmud eventually." The
entry categorically states:
"There were no Jews killed in
gas chambers.'"
The name of William N.
Grimstad appeared in the U.S.
Nazi movement in 1971, when he
was a staff writer for White
Power. During that year, some of
the material later incorporated
into "The Jews on Trial" ap-
peared with his by-line in a
special supplement of White
Power under the headline, "One
Hundred Views on the Jews." He
became managing editor of White
Power in 1972.
THE BOOK was published in
1973 in Washington, D.C., by
"Aryan Press." In 1976, it was
revised, retitled Antizion, and
published by Noontide Press in
Los Angeles. Noontide is run by
Willis Carto, an anti-Semite who
is the moving force behind the
Washington-based far-right
organization Liberty Lobby.
Antizion is widely advertised
in the hate press. It is distributed
by Carto's company, by James
Madole's neo-Nazi National
Renaissance Party in New York,
by Patriot Press, the "literature"
arm of David Duke's Knights of
the Ku Klux Klan in Louisiana,
and by Liberty Bell Publications,
an anti-Semitic propaganda mill
in Reedy, W. Va., operated by
George Dietz, who came to this
country from Germany where he
had belonged to the Hitler youth.
Grimstad, a denizen of the
American anti-Jewish under-
world, seems to have captured
the interest of Saudi Arabia,
whose King Faisal was himself a
distributor of anti-Jewish
literature, including the infamous
Protocols of the Elders ofZion
Grimstad is a former
managing editor of'White
Power,' the swastika-fes-
tooned periodical founded
in 1967 by the late George
Lincoln Rockwell as the
official organ of his Na-
tional Socialist White
Peoples Party .
and a book described in 1974
press dispatches as an anthology
of anti-Jewish quotations.
How such interest fits in with
the "moderate" image the Saudis
are trying to project is a good
question. But one thing is sure,
there is nothing moderate about
William N. Grimstad's hatred of
the Jews. The man whose foreign
agent registration is No. 2849 has
impeccable credentials as a
vociferous anti-Semite.

The Bakke Indecision
We are not quite sure who has won what in the
Supreme Court's ruling that the University of California
must admit Allan Bakke to its medical school at Davis.
The famous "reverse discrimination" case has made
its point that the majority can not be discriminated
against in favor of the minority that scholastic excel-
lence can not be set aside to make way for scholastic
mediocrity and even worse simply to correct injustices
against the minority perpetrated in the past.
On the other hand, the court also ruled that minority
status must be taken into positive consideration when
applicants are considered. This is both a pat and a slap to
the litigants in the Bakke case, and it opens the way, as
the noted Black leader, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, has
already noted, to confused standards in programs in-
volving equal access equal opportunity and affirmative
action.
On the one hand, we can no longer discriminate
against the majority; on the other, minority status must
be viewed with special favor. How does one judge?
It will take a Solomon to decide.
It does seem to us that the High Court ruling is really
a delayed decision to decide, and what it has achieved is to
open a veritable Pandora's Box of future litigation in-
volving both proponents and opponents in the landmark
Bakke case.
The Supreme Court has not so much decided
anything; its intent is to play things by ear in the future.
We can not conceive of a worse ruling.
The Carter Chutzpah
President Carter has sunk about as low as he'll ever
sink in his foreign affairs derby. He has threatened Israel
that if the Israelis do not see things his way, meaning the
Arab way, he's going to sk the Russians on them.
How else can one interpret his remark that if Israel
turns down Egypt's latest "peace proposal," the only
alternative will be to return to Geneva where, he pointedly
observed, the Russians will have a role to play?
Forget Israel for the moment. Isn't that cutting off
one's nose to spite one's face? How will we be able to live
with ourselves, if we give the Russians a say-so in the
Middle East? That is exactly what they have always
wanted. Even the Egyptians understand this and have
booted the Russians out. Will Carter now hand the Middle
East over to them on a silver platter?
What, in fact, has been the substance of President
Carter's foreign policy statements during the past few
weeks, if they were not directed toward warnings to the
Russians that their expansionist policies in Africa can not
be tolerated? That their growing strength in Eastern
Europe beyond a legitimate defensive posture is sus-
picious? That we will not accede to Russian intimidation
in the event of the resumption of the SALT talks?
As Carter sees it. apparently these threats to the very
life of the Western world have no significance so far as
Israel is concerned Israel, the only nation in the
Western bloc of nations that has been actively battling the
Russians since the 1956 Suez-Sinai war.
There is absurdity in the President's latest coercive
statement. Worse, there is insensitivity and even
ignorance in it. Given the sudden expendability of Israel
in his fevered little brain, we are not at all sure how
beneficial to our own safety in this world the loss of Israel
will be.
Mideast Arms Race
Thousands of words are being spoken about the need
to reduce arms at the United Nations General Assembly's
special session on disarmament, but the arms race con-
tinues as before. For the Middle East, the arms race is
especially tragic. Not only is the large amount of arms
that is pouring into the region increasing the threat of
war, but the billions of dollars being spent on weapons are
desperately needed to cure the region's vast social and
economic problems.
But the Arab states again used the conference as a
means of attacking Israel with unsubstantiated claims
against the Jewish State. Israel, on the other hand, did
make a positive contribution with its call for a regional
conference of all the countries of the Middle East to
discuss arms control in that area "

Reform Rabbis Told
Quebec Jews Don't Plan to Flee
Continued from Page 1
a session of the 89th Convention
of the Central Conference of
American Rabbis (CCAR) at the
Harbour Castle Hilton Hotel
here, attended by 500 delegates
representing some 1,300 Reform
rabbis from the U.S., Canada and
abroad.
Because of dynamic changes in
the Jewish community o!
Canada, as well as concern with
the Jewish situation in Quebec,
the Reform rabbis assembled
here devoted special sessions to
the subject of Jewish life in
Canada. Several rabbis in the
panel discussion on the
"situation in Quebec" agreed
that there is some anxiety among
Jews in that province.
Of the 300,000 Jews in Canada,
about 120,000 live in Toronto and
120,000 in Montreal.
PLAUT STRESSED that he
felt that "a great Jewish com-
munity will exist in Montreal
unless an extreme right-wing
element with strong anti-Semitic
feelings takes over in Quebec."
He said that "in a French
Quebec, there would be a natural
distinction between the non-
French of all kinds and the
Quebecois ... It is this which
gives rise to a sense of Jewish
anxiety because the climate of
any state with a monolithic
culture and social structure
would not be fully hospitable to
minority aspirations."
However, he cautioned the
Reform rabbis from throughout
the U.S. and Canada: "You who
come here from the U.S. must not
confuse this situation with that
to which we Jews have,
unhappily, been regularly ex-
posed over the centuries, namely, referendum on independence aJ
one in which anti-Semitism is the subject of many a debate, U
one
encouraged by governments or
given free reign. Once again, I
repeat, that this is not the issue.
PLAUT SAID. The issue is
the Francization of Quebec and
the natural fall-out which is its
consequence." In comments
prepared for delivery at another
session, Plaut said that the
leadership of the Canadian
Jewish Congress has come to the
conclusion that independence is
not in itself a Jewish issue.
Rabbi Edward S. Treister, of
Temple Rodeph Shalom of
Dollard Des Ormeaux, Quebec,
stressed that "the separation of
the province of Quebec from
Canada and any form of
relationship between Quebec and
Canada which may come about
are not Jewish issues per se. Nor
is Francization a Jewish issue.
Jews are, to be sure, affected by
any decision in these areas, but
not specifically as Jews."
Rabbi Mark A. Golub of
Temple Beth Sholom in Hamp-
stead. Quebec, spoke of an
eventual referendum on in-
dependence. "The continuing
imponderables of a dark and
unknown Jewish future in
Quebec which awaits an eventual

levine Named National
PR Director for UJA
A Critical Time for Us as Jews
NEW YORK, N.Y. Howard
Levine, formerly Director of
rublic Relations of the New
Uool for Social Research, New
fork has been appointed
Lional Public Relations
Erector for the United Jewish
lopeal, Irving Bernstein,
lecutive vice chairman, an-
Lnced today.
I As we enter our major 1979
Lmpaign for Jewish Renewal -
ft Home and Abroad,' Mr.
Line's more than 25 years of
fofessional public relations ex-
thence for non-profit institu-
ons, corporations and public
Rations agencies will be ex-
emely important to the UJA,"
|r. Bernstein said.
I Mr. Levine joined the New
j,ool for Social Research in
}U. Previously he was senior
ctor of public affairs for Pan
erican World Airways and
fcruor staff associate, public
Wns for Eastern Airlines,
fr Levine was general manager
[ Fred Wittner Public Relations,
hC.; director of publicity for
leshiva University; and director
sports information for
olumbia University.
j An active member of the New
fork Chapter of the Public
.elalions Society of America,
|r. Levine is the co-author (with
^ wife Carol) of Effective Public
hlaliuns for Community Groups
Association Press, 1969). He
las a contributor to the Third
Idition of the Columbia
Jncyclo/iedia and the Columbia-
fikmu Desk Encyclopedia.
Mr. Levine, a graduate of
Columbia University, is married
the former Carol Solomon, of
Portville, N.Y. They reside with
eir three children Jennifer,
Howard Levine
20. Judith. 19, and Charles, 15 -
in Hastings on Hudson. New
York.
The United Jewish Appeal,
founded in 1938, is the American
Jewish community's major
channel of funds for overseas
humanitarian aid. It supports the
United Israel Appeal, Inc., which
determines appropriate use of
UJA funds for the support of
Jewish Agency programs for
immigrants in Israel; the
American Joint Distribution
Committee, which provides a
wide range of health, welfare,
rehabilitation, education and
cultural services for needy Jews
in thirty countries including
Israel; the United HIAS Service,
which aids Jewish immigrants
settling in countries other than
Israel; and the New York
Association For New Americans,
which aids Jewish immigrants
settling in the Greater New york
area.
I have a suggestion for the
Community Relations Committee
of Federation:
Arrange to have telephone
service disconnected for all the
Jews who call in to radio talk
shows.
A successful project of this
dimension would do more to
eliminate the bad image of the
Jew than anything the CRC or
ADL and AJC could do in these
next months to justify their
existence as defenders of the
faith.
AS ONE who, quite often, is on
the studio end of these calls or,
less often, a listener on the road, I
used to be appalled by the
prejudice and ignorance of so
many of those who must let the
world in on their miasmal minds.
Now I am frightened. The
thought that they may be speak-
ing for a large number of people
out there is not a pleasant one.
The reasoning goes like this (in
the case of the recent "illegal" in-
flux of Haitian refugees): The
United States refused to let a
shipload of Jewish refugees from
Hitler enter the country in one of
the tragic stories of the Nazi era.
Why, then, should we alow these
Haitians in? If I hadn't heard it
myself, more than once, I would
not have believed it:
Loud, pushy Cubans.
Criminally frightening Blacks.
Won't learn English. Smell bad.
ONE CRINGES listening to
the biases emitted from so many
who retain their accents after 50
or more years here. Who were
banned from beaches and clubs
because they were "loud and
pushy." Whose criminal element
is part of the history of America
at its very lowest. And some of
whose groups are surely within
the rank of the great unwashed.
There is a defense to this of-
fensiveness on the part of those
who have assumed a public role
Edward
Cohen
as the voice of the Jewish people.
In better days, there were many
leaders who spoke up on issues of
bias, prejudice and dis-
crimination affecting all
Americans and peoples
throughout the world.
Today there are few, if any,
whose expressed concerns go
beyond what is perceived to be
the best interest of Jews.
THE LATEST issue of Civil
Liberties Review is worth
quoting in this respect: "By the
late 1960s and early 1970s,
Jewish-Americans especially
were retreating increasingly as a
group from an assertive civil
rights posture to one balanced
delicately between indifference
and neo-conservative opposition.
For the first time, Jewish intel-
lectuals, public policy analysts,
and organizations became
leading advocates of a moderate
or conservative approach to af-
firmative action by the federal
government."
I pointed out in a column last
November that the "Bakke Case
(is) Wrong One for Jews".
"What saddens me is that,
once again, it is the legitimate
Jewish concern about quotas
which has been made to appear as
an attack on the affirmative
action program," I wrote. My
reasons for that was in an
"opinion" that quite accurately
anticipated the mixed-up
Supreme Court ruling last
week:
"IN RAISING THE cry
against set quotas of admission,
Housing Blight Under Attack
aster Plan for 160 Slum Areas in Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Deputy Premier Yigael
fadin told the Jewish
Agency's Seventh As-
embly that the master
an for the rehabilitation
160 slum areas through-
it Israel depended on a
ie partnership between
^rael and the entire Jewish
sple. The program, which
lould affect the lives of
fmp 45 OHO Hisnrivanracrpd
lilies, was the main topic
i the Assembly's agenda.
It is a joint venture of the
Dvernment and the Jewish
(gency to be implemented
a planning committee,
ded by Yadin.
YADIN, who is leader of the
Nocratic Movement for
*nge (DMC), explained that
jncept. He said the joint
Jmmittee, consisting of an equal
Timber of representatives of the
Jewish Agency and of govern-
ment ministries concerned with
the absorption of immigrants and
the welfare of the poor, was
established to avoid the mistakes
of the past.
He said tnat previously the
problem was handled piecemeal
(>> uuMNMU iminsane* and
agencies. "You cannot divide
people according to ministries,"
he said, alluding apparently to
new immigrants and that part of
the established population that
still lives in poverty.
He said that was the reason he
insisted on a coordinating role
when he accepted the office of
Deputy Premier. "No plan will be
carried out unless ratified by the
planning committee," Yadin
stressed.
HE NOTED that the project is
not concerned solely with the
improvement of housing but will
take a comprehensive approach
to the problems of the disad-
vantaged.
It includes the development of
infrastructure such as roads,
fences, sewage, lighting, public
parks, educational and religious
institutions, centers for adult
education, day care centers and
community clubs offering ac-
tivities for different age groups.
He noted that the high per-
centage of slum families with
many schoolage children made it
necessary to add classes to
existing schools and to build new
schools in distressed neigh-
borhoods.
HOUSING MINISTER
Gideon Patt told the Assembly
delegates later in the day that the
renewal program would affect the
lives of some 300.000 individuals,
one-tenth of Israel's population.
He described the problems in
slum areas which include a high
crime rate, high birth rate, a high
rate of unemployment and a large
aged population as young
families moved away to better
themselves.
He said the renewal program
called for the complete clearing of
some areas and a thorough
renovation of others. He said that
the local people would not always
cooperate with government
departments and predicted that
some would resist being moved or
rehoused.
The government must tread
carefully and try to convince
these people of the benefits of the
new plan.
the case is marred by the
specious argument which has
attracted the ignorant and the
prejudiced that merit,
meaning test marks and grades,
should be the only determining
factors in entrance to college or
graduate school."
A bare majority of the
Supreme Court agrees, and the
question now is whether the
retreat from civil liberties and
civil rights will continue.
That the mood set by Bakke
and Skokie, as prime examples, is
infectious for other Bill of Rights
issues was illustrated recently for
me in a letter from U.S Senator
Richard Stone on the question of
the tuition tax credit. "I am in
total sympathy with the goal of
this legislation ... I voted for an
amendment to the 1976 Tax
Reform Act rr" "-""M feavo
allowed (the) tax deduction."
HE DOES go on to say he is
studying "the validity of con-
cerns raised," such as the con-
stitutionality of the tax credits
under the First Amendment.
Since my predictions are holding
up well, let me prophesy that as
one of those the Civil Liberties
Review sadly described, Sen.
Stone will vote for the tax
credits.
If the salutation from Dick
Stone's letter, "Dear Mr.
Cohen," was the prelude to
rejection, the one from his
Florida colleague. Sen. Lawton
Chiles, began with a better note.
"Dear Edward, I share your
sentiments in opposition to pro-
rjsals for tuition tax credits .
hould legislation come before
the full Senate to provide for
tuition tax credits at the elemen-
tary or secondary school level, I
can assure you that I will oppose
it."
Now would be a good time for
Jewish organizations and in-
dividual leaders to stop, look and
listen. I perceive a dangerous
crossing ahead.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
Hukkat
"And Moses smote the rock with his rod twice; and
water came forth abundantly" (Num. 20.11).
HUKKAT The portion begins with "the statue of the
law" of the red heifer, whose ashes "shall be kept for the
congregation of Israel as a water of sprinkling ... a
purification from sin" (Numbers 19.9). At the outset of
their fortieth year in the wilderness, the children of Israel
reached the desert of Zin and halted at Kadesh. There
Miriam died. When the water gave out, God instructed
Moses and Aaron to gather the Israelites before a rock;
Moses was to speak to the rock, and it would gush water.
But Moses, irritated at the people's complaints, struck the
rock with his rod. For this lack of faith in the divine power,
Moses and Aaron were punished with never being able to
enter the Promised Land. From Kadesh the children of
Israel moved on to Mount Hor, where Aaron died. Thence
they circled the land of Edom, and arrived at Transjordan
from the east, defeating the forces of Sihon, king of the
Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan.

Can The Desert Bloom?
By ASHER BAR-ZEV, Ph.D.
Rabbi, Temple Beth El
West Palm Beach, Fla.
On the recent Temple Beth El
trip to Israel, one of the most
exciting sites which we visited
was Avdat in the Negev. The
ruins of Avdat sit astride a hill
that overlooks two major caravan
routes of ancient times. Like
most such ancient fortresses, it
was of strategic value to its
civilization. When compared to
such sites as Massada or
Megiddo, Avdat has much the
same look about it. The partially
excavated ruins, the ancient
churches, the storehouses and
other buildings all testify to the
importance of the city in ancient
times.
The reason that Avdat is more
exciting than many other sites
lies in its origins as a Nabatean
city. The Nabateans were a
people who inhabited the Negev
and Transiordan on the oDDosite
side of the Arava rift in biblical
times. While the geology,
geography and climate of this
area have not changed in 3,000
years and we can therefore ap-
preciate the great difficulty
which the Nabateans faced in
building a civilization in a hot,
bone-dry environment, the fact
that they did so must give us
pause and must pique our
curiosity as to how they did it.
Therein lies a tale.
Rabbi Nelson Glueck in his
book, Rivers In The Desert, was
the first to point out that the
Nabatean civilization was based
on the extreme conservation of all
water resources. While it does not
rain very much in the Negev.
when it does rain, water comes
down in torrents and dry wadis or
river beds are turned into
seething rivers in a matter of
minutes. The water is ordinarily
lost by its emptying either into
the Dead Sea or into the
Mediterranean sea. The
Nabateans. through an intricate
system of canals, dams and
cisterns, managed to save every
drop of water that fell in the
Negev. Unlike other deserts,
which are composed of sand
which is not agriculturally
productive, the Negev has good
soil which could yield rich crops
provided sufficient water was
available. By trapping the water
of the Negev, the Nabateans
managed to grow fruitful crops
and founded a productive
civilization. Avdat was one of
heir major cities.
Modern Israelis have decided
to learn from the ancient
Nabateans and have begun to
retrace and rebuild the canal
systems of ancient days in the
hope of once more making the
Negev bloom. In view of the fact
that 100 percent of the current
water resources of Israel are now
in use, there can be no hope for
the desert to bloom without

Dear Mrs. Rubin:
I n behalf of the patients, staff
and myself, we want to again
express our sincere gratitude and
appreciation for the generosity of
the young boys and girls in their
presentation of "Oliver." I have
had nothing but good comments.
As you could witness, we had a
very captive audience.
What a delight and refreshing
sight to see young talent giving
of themselves to those who are
less fortunate. Please express to
each one our "thanks" and to the
pianist who accompanied them.
The devotion you have shown to
our patients is truly appreciated.
Our residents are not in the
higher income bracket, as you
know, so I will again take the
liberty of asking you to help us
again in the future. Our needs are
many and no matter how small
the deed it never will go un-
noticed.
Again, we humbly thank you
and will be looking forward to
hearing from you again in the
near future.
Cordially yours,
Mrs. Aldine Rinehart
Activities Director
Lakeview Manor Nursing Home
