Baer Castigates French Government for Daoud's Release
Jewish Federation President
Allan E. Baer accused the French
government Thursday of be-
coming "a party to criminality"
by permitting the release from
custody of Arab terrorist leader
Abud Daoud, a suspect in the
PLO / Black September assas-
sination of the Israeli athletes at
the 1972 Olympic Games in
Munich.
In a sharply worded telegram
to French Ambassador Jaques
Kosciusko'moriz in Washington,
the Fort Leuderdale Jewish
leader termed Daoud's release
"unpardonable" and a "travesty
of the French reputation for
humanity and justice."
Daoud had been apprehended
by French internal security police
last week but was released by
order of a French court and flown
this past Tuesday to Algeria.
Both the Israel and West Ger-
man governments had petitioned
France for Daoud's extradition.
The Paris court ruled, however,
that the French-Israel extra-
dition compact was signed after
the events at Munich and did not
apply, while the extradition
request of the West Germans was
considered inapplicable since
Daoud was not a French citizen.
The legal technicalities em-
Sloyed by the court in ordering
'aoud's release have been widely
interpreted as French appease-
ment of the Arabs in light of the
French dependence on oil from
Libya, Iraq and Algeria.
Baer, in his wire to the French
Ambassador, asked him to
convey to his government "the
dismay and chagrin" of Fort
Lauderdale's 60,000 Jews over
Daoud's release. The telegram
declared in full:
"The Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale asks
you to convey to your govern-
ment the dismay and chagrin of
the 60,000 member Jewish Com-
munity of Fort Lauderdale,
Florida, at the unpardonable
release from French custody of
the arch-criminal Abu Daoud
who engineered and took part in
the savage murder of 11 members
of Israel's team at the 1972
Munich Olympics.
"It is a travesty of the French
reputation for humanity and
justice that a French government
should have become a party to
criminality by permitting and
facilitating the release to freedom
of a wanton murderer whose
bloody act outraged the con-
science of all the world. French
honor has been besmirched by
this callous deed of your
government.
"We who have always
respected France as a cradle
human liberty and as a champion
of the free spirit are repelled by
this mean act of complicity in
terrorism and murder on the part
of the French government."

Reservations May Indicate Large Luncheon to Host
Turnout for Campaign Dinner Journalist Schoenbrun
Interest was building for the
Jewish Federation's Man of the
Year dinner a month before the
event, with reservations coming
in even before the issuance of a
formal invitation. The dinner will
take place Sunday, Feb. 20 at
Pier 66, with $1,000 as the mini-
mum contribution.
Kdith and Jack Levine of Point
of Americas, chairpersons of the
dinner, expressed gratification
and "delighted surprise."
The Levines, who are long-time
Federation and UJA workers,
attributed the response to the
popularity of Alvin S. Gross, who
will be dinner guest of honor as
the Jewish Federation's Man of
the Year.
"The Federation couldn't have
picked a more popular and more
deserving person for receipt of
this singular honor," the Levines
declared. "He's not only a man of
towering achievement but a man
who has inspired so many others
to do the right thing for good
causes, not least of these the
cause of Israel."
Gross said that he was elated
"the dinner is headed toward a
success."
"It will be a success not for a
ALVIN S. GROSS
man," he said, "but for the
Jewish Federation and UJA."
A past president of the Fort
Lauderdale Jewish Federation
and a former general chairman of
the Federation-sponsored United
Jewish Appeal campain, Gross
has remained active as a member
of the Federation's board of
directors. He is president of
Mercury Linen Service, which
operates the Broward Linen
Service, Linen Systems for Hos-
pitals and the Peerless Uniform
Service. He is a past president of
the Linen Supply Association of
America and past president of
the Southeastern Linen Supply
Association.
This will be the second time in
his career that Gross has been
named a man of the year. He was
cited in 1968 as Man of the Year
for Outstanding Management.'
He is a member of the Broward
Industrial Committee of One
Hundred, a former board member
of the Better Business Bureau of
Broward County, a member of
the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of
Commerce, a member of the
Downtown Fort Lauderdale
Rotary, and a member of the
Sales and Marketing Club of Fort
Lauderdale.
He was chairman of the
Temple Emanu-El Building
Fund, a past officer and director
of the temple, a past president of
Fort Lauderdale Lodge No. 1438
of B'nai B'rith, a member of the
American Jewish Committee,
and a 32nd Degree Mason.
Reservations for the dinner
may be made by contacting
Edith and Jack Levine at the
Federation offices, Fort
Lauderdale.
On RiseWhv?
?Jewish Women
By ALLEN S. MALLER
Discussions, stories and even
jokes about Jewish-Gentile love
and marriage almost always deal
with a Jewish man and a Gentile
woman. This is because 60 to 70
percent of Jewish-Gentile mar-
riages involve the 'ewish man.
However, the recent rapid rise of
mixed marriages has resulted in a
large number of Jewish women
who marry Gentile men.
While the traditional image of
the Jewish husband is very
favorable, the stereotype of the
Jewish woman (today's Jewish
princess, tomorrow's Jewish
mother) is usually negative. Why
then are an increasing number of
Gentile men marrying Jewish
women?
IRONICALLY enough, the
almost 100 interviews I have had
with mixed couples indicate that
frequently the same things which
are part of some Jewish men's
Marry Gentile Men
objections to Jewish women are
the very things that Gentile men
admire. The stereotype Jewish
woman is aggressive, loud,
materialistic, and has an over-
inflated self-image.
In addition, she uses sex as a
weapon or as a trap. Or at least
that's what many Jewish men
claim. Seventy percent of the
Gentile men I interviewed felt
that there were indeed general-
izable differences between the
Jewish women and the Gentile
women they knew.
The great majority, however,
viewed the differences favorably.
Jewish women were independent,
and not the submissive, meek,
clinging vine type that is so
common in the South and Mid-
west. Jewish women speak out.
They show their feelings and give
their opinions rather than act
politely and guard their
thoughts.
JEWISH WOMEN are ad-
mirable because they know what
is going on. They know prices,
how to negotiate, how to organize
and get things done. They are
energetic, vivacious, and self-
confident. Jewish women become
marriage partners rather than
simply being adjuncts to their
husbands. At least that's what
many Gentile men say.
As can be easily seen, most of
the stereotypes of the Gentile
men in love with Jewish women
are really similar to those of the
Jewish men who dislike Jewish
women. The difference is that
while the Jewish man uses
negative terms, the Gentile man
uses positive terms. Part of the
difference may be due to personal
differences in ego strength.

Progess

of Vic G rum an and Bob Taylor.
The Inverrary area, dotted by a total of 11 separated condo-
minium and rental complexes with a reported population in excess
of 10,000, is both "a problem and a challenge," in the words of
Gruman, who has been named by Slater to take charge of the
organizational aspects of the campaign. But the problem and the
challenge are being "reduced to size," according to Gruman.
Chairmen are being sought to take working responsibility in each
if the complexes, and by the middle of January the following
persons had agreed to take charge: Slater, chairman in The

For many years, in New York,
Morton was a B'nai B'rith Girls
advisor and delegate to the
Metropolitan Council for B'nai
B'rith Organization as well as a
Girl Scout leader and officer in
the Girl Scout Leaders Associa-
tion. In her spare time Morton
participated in and became an

cratic Club in Laurelton, L.I.,
and was a PTA president.
When she moved to Florida in
1969, Morton became an officer in
the New York State Club, and
when Federation formed in North
Broward she and her friends in
Lauderhill B'nai B'rith Women
volunteered for the Chaplaincy
Visitation Program, which has
since been incorporated into

Morton sums up her approach
to life when she says "when you

you get at least as much out of it
as you put in." May Morton is

Dropout Proposition
A local Jewish federation in New Jersey has taken the
step of publicly announcing a proposal to deal with the
problem of Soviet emigrants who after leaving the Soviet
Union decided to go to some country other than Israel.
What the New Jersey group has suggested is that all
Jewish emigrants from the USSR spend only one night in
Vienna and then be flown immediately to Israel where they
would be housed in absorption centers regardless of their
final destination. In Israel, the Englewood group suggests
that every creative approach should be made to make
settlement there attractive for the Russian immigrants
including seminars and tours "to give the Soviet Jews a
background on Israel, Jewish identity and Jewish culture."
The New Jersey group said that locally some of the funds
that are now used to absorb Soviet Jews in the Englewood
area should be allocated to aid Soviet Jews who have
settled in Israel. Soviet Jews who come to the U.S. will still
be helped, but "The Soviet Jew who opts to come directly
to America without even trying to make a go in Israel will
no longer have a preferred status over the Soviet Jew who
tries to succeed in Israel."
The Englewood UJF has not offered a cure-all. But their
suggestion is one that is a good starting point for others in
the American Jewish community to consider in an effort to
find a fair and just solution to this perplexing dilemma.
A Year Later
It has been a year since illegal squatters, members of the
ultra-nationalist, largely Orthodox, Gush Emunim
movement, have been encamped in Kadum at the edge of an
Israeli army base in Samaria on the West Bank.
The Kadum affair is an example of a blatant contempt for
the law coupled by indecision and failure to act by the
Rabin government. It should be remembered that the
government last June said that the squatters must leave
Kadum and offered them alternative sites. They rejected
the alternatives, and nothing has happened since.
The question is not whether Israel has a right to establish
settlements on the West Bank or even the future of the
territories. The future of the West Bank will hopefully some
day be decided by negotiations.
Prime Minister Rabin suggested after Ofer's funeral that
it ought to be the object of the press to report the news, not
to manufacture it.
Certainly, in the Ofer case, that seems tragically true.
Until then the decision whether Jewish settlements
should be established there must be left in the hands of the
governmentthe Cabinet and the Knesset. The issue is
too important and the stakes too high to allow independent
groups to take the decision out of the hands of a demo-
cratically-elected government that represents the people of
Israel.
'George Elliot' Spoke for Zionism
JERUSALEM (JTA) A grove of 1,000 trees has been
dedicated by the Jewish National Fund in memory of the
British Victorian novelist George Eliot (nom de plume of
Marian Evans-Cross, 1819-1880).
The grove is in the International Women's Forest in the
Galilee. In her book, "Daniel Deronda," George Eliot spoke out
in favor of what is in effect the thesis of political Zionism, af-
firming the right of the Jewish people to return to their ancient
homeland.
Attending the dedication ceremony were British Ambassador
and Mrs. John Mason and Dr. Israel Goldstein. The latter
represented the JNF Directorate.

Number 2
A MAJOR institution is
currently under fire by Adver-
tising Lodge 2695 of B'nai B'rith
in New York City. The major
institution is Reader's Digest.
Americans, generally, are no-
toriously uninterested in the
printed word. The impact of tele-
vision and pictorial journalism is
proof, if proof there need be, that
as a nation we are reading less
and less these days, and enjoying
a staggering increase in func-
tional illiteracy more and more.
THE ASTONISHING sucess
of Reader's Digest for decades
now seemingly disproves this
pattern. Actually, it does not.
Reader's Digest is to the printed
word what Lawrence Welk is to
music a soothing celebration
of ignorance in sentimental
terms.
Readers of Reader's Digest are
a vestigial American link to liter-
acy on its lowest level, but
because they purport to represent
an elite class, the publication
they read in turn takes on the
appearance of a distinguished
journal of opinion.
There is thus a symbiotic
relationship between Reader's
Digest and its clientele in which
each elevates the other into a
category of distinction neither in
fact enjoys.
THIS IS important to un-
derstand if one is in turn to
understand the exalted
reputation of Reader's Digest
and the constituency of its
clientele, mediocrities who are
either totally uninformed or,
what is worse, misinformed on a
variety of the topics about which
Reader's Digest purports to
inform them in a medocre way.
It is also important if one is to
understand that the generally
simplistic level of Reader's
Digest articles (the board of the
magazine knows its readership
well) is in fact regarded by these
clients as the last word in ex-
haustive authority.
With this in mind, imagine the
propagandistic impact of a series
of articles in Reader's Digest
beginning in the winter of last
year with a devastating anti-
Israel slant:
FEBRUARY. 1976 An
attack on members of Congress
who have been supporting Israel;
April, 1976 A panegyric
of praise to Yasir Arafat and his
fight for the Palestinians;
August, 1976 A glowing
tribute to President Hafez Assad
of Syria.
Under ordinary circumstances,
this would be enough to worry
about all by itself.
U.S. Aiding
Emigres
WASHINGTON (WNS) -
The Justice Department has
confirmed Rep. Joshua Eilberg's
statement that the Department
was taking steps to permit the
some 4,000 Soviet Jews in Rome
to enter the United States.
Eilberg (D., Pa.) said he ex-
pected Atty. Gen. Edward Levi
to exercise his parole authority
for all Soviet Jews who arrived in
the processing center in Rome by
Dec. 31, 1976.
THESE SOVIET Jews left the
USSR with exit visas for Israel,
the only destination for which the
Soviet government issues visas.
After leaving the USSR they
declared their desire to come to
the U.S.
Eilberg, who is chairman of the
House Subcommittee on
Immigration, Citizenship and
International Law, said he wan
"very pleased" by Levi's decision.
Mindlin
BUT NEW York's Advertising
Lodge of B'nai B'rith, in a recent
resolution condemning the
magazine, reminds us that the
Reader's Digest drift is even
more worrisome than is apparent
on its face.
The resolution recalls a
Business Week report of March
24, 1976 that Arab OPEC
member nations had hired an
advertising agency to make
arrangements to pay Reader's
Digest "to run a series of articles
to portray OPEC in a sym-
pathetic light."
One agency, PKL Advertising
of New York, undertook to
guarantee a campaign that would
"reach 95 percent of adult
Americans over and over again
throughout 1975."
JOHN SHIMA, president of
PKL, offered OPEC a "cold
turkey" deal for "less than $10
million" to achieve "a positive,
informed attitude toward OPEC
that will lessen the possibility of
American sentiment exploding
into a call for decisive political,
technologic (sic) or economic
action against them."

Secrecy Stamps
A U.S. Disease
iackandersa
WASHINGTON Gover-
nment officials constantly use the
stamp of official secrecy to
protect themselves. This
amounts to censorship at the
source. The news belongs to the
people, not to the government.
That's the reason there are no
censorship stamps in
Washington. So government
officials use secrecy stamps,
instaed of censorship stamps, to
censor the news.
We have made it a practice,
therefore, to look for the news
that is swept under the secrecy
label. So over the years, we've
learned a lot about our in-
telligence operations.
OUR INTELLIGENCE agen
cies gather an incredible amount
of information. Coded intel-
ligence reports literally flood into
Washington from all over the
world.
Our people have also managed
to bug hundreds of sensitive
offices throughout the world. For
example, Lee Harvey Oswald
made a trip to Mexico City before
he shot President John F.
Kennedy. Oswald stopped by the
Cuban embassy, where he placed
a call to the Russian embassy.
Our intelligence agents picked up
his conversation at both ends.
The secret transcripts of all
these conversations are also for-
warded to Washington. In ad-
dition, telephone calls and radio
messages are intercepted on a
massive scale. Our spy satellites
also photograph foreign terrain.
The film packets are ejected from
space and snagged out of the air
by Air Force planes.
FROM THESE space photos,
our analysts can determine where
every factory in Russia is located,
what it produces, where every
missile is deployed, where those
that haven't been deployed are
stored and where those that
haven't been stored are being
manufactured.
So Washington is absolutely
deluged with intelligence. But we
regret to report that it usually
takes weeks to process it all.
Those who do the processing are
often inexperienced and in-
competent.
A lot of vital intelligence,
therefore, never reaches our
policymakers. Much of the intel-
ligence that does reach them is
several weeks old. It is also
digested for the easy reading of
the top officials. An overnight
digest, for example is prepared
for the President.
THERE ISN'T much happen-
ing around the world that
Washington doesn't pick up.
Certainly, the United States has
the best intelligence-gathering
technology in the world.
But only a small fraction of
this intelligence is read by the
people who count.
Often, the most vital in-
telligence never gets past the
third-string analysts. What we're
trying to say is that our system
of processing and analyzing
intelligence is hopelessly fouled
up.
LESS FOR MORE: We
reported last April that candy
companies have been putting less
and less chocolate in their bars.
Rep. Ben Rosenthal of New York
investigated. We have now had
access to his confidential fin-
dings.
His investigators found that
candy bars not only contain less
chocolate. They also will be
costing more money. Hersheys,
Peter Paul and M are raising the
price to 20 cents. That's a nickel
more for less candy. It's double
what comparable candy bars cost
only two years ago.
In 1974, the candy makers
added a nickel to the price and
blamed the rising cost of sugar.
Now they are adding another
nickel and blaming the high cost
of cocoa beans.
BUT THE candy companies
aren't telling the whole story. It's
true that cocoa bean prices have
gone up. But sugar prices have
also gone back down. One candy
official conceded that the rise in
cocoa prices has been offset by
the dramatic drop in sugar prices.
Rosenthal's investigators also
learned that the candy companies
aren't using the high-priced cocoa
beans. They make their pur
chases six to 12 months in ad-
vance. Therefore, they really paid
last year's lower prices for the
cocoa beans they are now using.
The high-priced beans won't even
be delivered until the spring.
So there doesn't appear to be
any justification for the nickel
increase. A spokesman for the
National Confectionera As-
sociation insisted that higher
cocoa bean prices do justify 20-
cent candy bars. But Rep.
Rosenthal's subcommittee in-
tends to look into possible an-
titrust violations in the pricing of
candy bars.

states in face of strong
Jewish pressure for immi-
gration and independence
in Palestine.
At the same time, Attlee
himself sought to retain the
good will and cooperation
of moderate Zionist leaders.
A NUMBER of documents,
among them records of Cabinet
deliberations, have been withheld
on grounds that they are still too
sensitive for publication.
These are said to include
Cabinet discussions of a proposal
to arrest ships at sea carrying
illegal Jewish immigrants to
Palestine. They will not be made
public for another 20 years.
Two former members of the
Attlee government, Lord
Shinwell, who was Minister of
Fuel in 1946, and Christopher
Mayhew, who was Parliamentary
Secretary of the Foreign Office
headed by Foreign Secretary
Ernest Bevin, differed over the
reasons why some of the Cabinet
papers were not released after
expiration of the mandated 30-
year period covering classified
documents.
SHINWELL said this was
probably in order to protect the
reputation of the late Bevin
against revelations that might
imply that he had acted in a
criminal fashion with respect to
Palestine.
Bu Mayhew, long a supporter
of the Arab cause and now a
member of the Liberal Party, did
not think the suppressed papers
would show any evidence against
Bevin. He claimed they were
withheld "because they revealed
the unusual forms of pressure,
including assassination threats,
which Zionists used at that time
against British ministers, in-
cluding Mr. Bevin and myself."
HE SAID that at least one
person believed responsible for
the pressure now holds a high
position in Israel and the govern-
ment wants to avoid offending
Israel or its supporters in Britain.
Lord Shinwell said on a radio
interview that when the full
documents are released "people
will be startled because they are a
bit distasteful, a bit distressful."

TEL AVIV (WNS) Thousands of mourners led
by President Ephraim Katzir and Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin attending the funeral Jan. 5 of Avraham Ofer, the
Housing Minister, who committed suicide two days
earlier, heard Rabin in a eulogy at the Kiryat Shaul
cemetery say he had told Ofer, only a day before his death,
that he believed him innocent of allegations of wrong-
doing in a housing company scandal, the pressures of
which had caused him to take his own life.
Ofer had been the target initiated apparently on the basis
of accusations that he
engaged in illegal activities
while president of Shikun
Ovdim, the Histadrut
housing company, before he
joined the Rabin Cabinet in
1974.
HE LEFT a note declaring
innocence of any wrong-doing.
"For weeks and months I am
tortured, my blood is shed for no
wrong that I have ever done. I
have no doubt that my innocence
will be proven and that I have not
betrayed, have made no frauds,
but I cannot wait for that day, I
can bear it no more."
Police sources said an informal
investigation of Ofer had been
of charges made against the
Housing Minister by Yigal
Laviv, a journalist who filed a
complaint last year against
Asher Yadlin, former head of
Kupat Holim the Histadrut sick
fund, who is presently in jail
waiting trial.
The case against Yadlin, a
close friend of Ofer, is not con-
nected with allegations against
the Housing Minister. Charges
against Ofer included allegation
that he gave cheap apartments
built with public funds to
relatives of senior officials, in-
cluding his own son, to certain
journalists and to various per-
sons of wealth and influence who
were not by law entitled to them.
He also was accused of illegal
land deals in the administered
territories.
OFER MET with Rabin Jan. 2
and reportedly begged the Prime
Minister to hasten the in-
vestigation in order to end the
rumors and clear his name. Rabin
in his euolgy said "We knew of
his innocence. On Sunday he
came to me and said 'Yitzhak,
believe me, I am innocent of any
offense.' And I told him, I,
Yitzhak Rabin, believe you."
Turning to the newsmen at the
graveside, Rabin said: "To the
people who spread rumors, his
death will be a lesson. It will
move people and teach them to
beware of any unfounded
charges, to beware of the printed
word when it seeks to pass
judgment without trial."
One person at the funeral was
heard to say that if Rabin had
said these words earlier he might
have prevented Ofer's tragic
death. Meanwhile, only a few
hours before the funeral, in-
formation emanating from "most
highly placed sources" said the
polka had checked out 27 of the
32 charge's against Ofer and
found them baseless.
THERE IS NOTHING
THAT CAN BE SUBSTITUTED FOR
SEEING ISRAEL FOR YOURSELF"
"I don't believe that there is a better way
to express your feelings than to actually go
to Israel....There is something special about
the Holy Land... .Those who go, come back
entirely different. They sec something that
no words can describe."
So spoke Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister
of Israel, at the beginning of this Solidarity
Pilgrimage Year. Yet, what Rabin said is an
echo of what every person has felt who has
ever visited Israel. You know this.
If you don't you'll learn it at Pesach, when,
sitting at the Seder in Israel, every symbol
of this festival of freedom will take on
richness that almost aches.
You'll know the feeling when you join the
crowd and dance through the streets on
Purim or Independence Day.
You'll feel it on Shavuot, as the First
Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel
Fruits arc paraded through the kibbutz
with so much bursting pride. And at the
Western Wall, where the ancient chanting
through the night seems to make centuries
melt away.
You'll know what "no words can de-
scribe" when you walk through the streets
of Israel at Sukkot, and find yourself sur-
rounded by beautiful Sukkot booths in
every yard and on every balcony.
You'll feel it at Chanukah, at the candle
lighting ceremony atop Mount Zion.
But you don't need a celebration to share
these experiences. Because every day of
Solidarity Year is a celebration of your
partnership with Israel.
And once you go and feel these things for
the first time, as many times as you return
will never be enough. rv*.

NEW YORK (WNS)
HIAS has never em-
ployed Soviet Jewish
dropouts for operational
work in its Vienna office,
Gaylor Jacobson, executive
vice president of HIAS,
said here. He was replying
to a statement by Uzi
Narkiss, director general of
the Jewish Agency's Aliya
Department, who said in
Jerusalem that he had de-
manded, in an exchange of
letter with Jacobson, that
HIAS discharge "a
number" of Soviet Jewish
dropouts working in the
Vienna office.
JACOBSON said he had
cabled Narkiss Jan. 4 that there
were two dropouts working m the
HIAS Vienna office whose only
job was to type forms required by
Austrian and Italian officials for
Soviet Jews going from Vienna to
Rome.
Jacohson said that in his cable
to Narkiss he said the women
were hired because of their
knowledge of Russian and
English based on "our desire to
cooperate with the Jewish
Agency so that the dropouts do
not remain indefinitely in
Vienna."
He explained that the Jewish
Agency requested in 1968 that
HIAS move dropouts from
Vienna to Rome within 72 hours.
Jacobson said one of the typists
is immigrating to the United
States to rejoin her family and
the other is joining a brother in
Sweden.

estinian terrorist arrested
in Paris, confessed on a
Jordanian radio broadcast
from Amman in 1973 that
he was one of the master-
minds of the assault on the
1972 Olympic Games at
Munich in which 11 Israeli
athletes were massacred.
At the time of his confes-
sion, Daoud was serving a
life sentence in Jordan
which he had entered in
February, 1973 on a ter-
rorist mission.
These and other facts about
Daoud's bloody career were
recalled as extradition requests
were expected to be submitted by
the governments of Israel and
West Germany, each of which
wants the terrorist to stand trial
for the mass murders at Munich.
DAOUD WORKED as a
teacher in Jordan between 1956-
60 and taught in Saudi Arabia
and Kuwait from 1960-65. He
returned to Jordan in 1968 where
he finished his law studies. Sub-
sequently he became connected
with the "Black September," an
offshoot of El Fatah formed after
King Hussein's successful cam-
paign against terrorist gangs in
1970.
When he returned to Jordan
secretly in 1973 he headed a ter-
rorist group that was planning to
kidnap Jordanian government
officials as hostages tor the
release of terrorists jailed in that
country. He was captured and
sentenced to death.
BUT WHILE in jail, Arab
'errorists perpetrated new out-
rages intended to force his
release. They occupied the Saudi
Arabian Embassy in Khartoum,
Sudan, killing three Western
diplomats, including an Amer-
ican, who were attending a
reception at the time. Later, ter-
rorists occuped the Saudian Em-
bassy in Paris.

The $10 million figure was
lonsiderably more than OPEC
ad in mind when its repre-
entatives met in Vienna in
January, 1975 with Reader's
yigest editors and advertising
epresentatives to discuss their
Propaganda needs.
The Reader's Digest repre-
intatives, according to the
fusiness Week report, told Chief
f. 0 Feyide, the oil group's
.^retary general from Nigeria,
[that a suitable program would
ost anywhere from SI.87 million
$4.53 million, 'depending on
s length of the articles and the
lumber of insertions.' '
FEYIDE LATER declared
iat "The gentlemen made an
lpressive presentation
egarding the nature of the
Iroblem to be attacked, the type
|f campaign to be mounted, and
target to which the effort
|hould be directed. They sug-
ested that the aim must be to
orrect the wrong, onesided and
ad image which has been given
i OPEC, which has led in many
Quarters to suspicion, fear, and
Iven dislike."
The upshot of all this was a
feyide recommendation to OPEC
its June, 1975 meeting in
labon to employ PKL or another
lien agency for a six-month
eriod, and at a cost to be ne-
Dtiated, presumably far less
ban PKL's original $10 million
^timate, which Feyide
>mewhat cynically called
txcessive."
LThe designated agency would
en enter into "a limited con-
ict with Reader's Digest for
pblication of a series of not more
in four articles."

The February, April, and

THESE DAYS, in response to

Presumably, he is holding
sacred the trust of the press

interest) or the dangers involved
in investigative reporting.

declare in a letter to Jack Geller,
of Advertising Lodge, that "The
figures quoted of $1.87 million to
$4.53 million refer to the length
and frequency of advertisements
(italics his) that were proposed."
NOR DOES John D. Panitza,
the Reader's Digest European
editor, who was at the Vienna
meeting, deny the offer. "They
want to buy pages. We'll sell
them pages," he says of the deal.
To clarify his magazine's
position, Panitza observes that
he and other Reader's Digest
executives at the meeting went to
great lengths to explain the dif-
ference to OPEC representatives
between editorial content and
advertising.
But concludes Panitza, "It's
their decision what they put on
those pages" the pages that
the Digest finally sold the anti-
Israel oilionaires.
Quite obviously, it was.
Also quite obviously, it was
Reader's Digest that needed ex-
planation! of the difference
between editorial content and ad-
vertising, not OPEC.
AND SO now. for readers of
Reader's Digest, the backbone of
the nation with a sentimental
hold on what they consider to be
the Bible of contemporary
opinion, the word is out upon the
land, not about OPEC but, pre-
dictably, about those nasty
Israelis, all neatly denned in
three well-disguised articles.
And who can argue with
the word. Reader's Digest style,
which makes no distinction
between propaganda and fact,
and is willing to let anyone enjoy
the confusion at somewhere
between $1.87 million and $4.53
million a throw?
For their effort to do so.
Advertising Lodge of B'nai
B'rith must be applauded.
Waldheim Schedules Trip

Waldheim's Mideast tour is part of his efforts to prepare
the ground for the resumption of the Geneva Mideast Peace
Conference. Until he takes off to the Mideast, Waldheim will
continue consultations here with the parties concerned.

N.J. Plan Offers 'Equitable'
Attempt To Solve Debate
ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (JTA)
The Russian Absorption Com-
mittee of the United Jewish Fund
of Englewood and Surrounding
Communities has adopted a reso-
lution expressing concern about
"the increase in the number of
Soviet Jews receiving exit visas
who opt to come to the United
States instead of Israel" and
suggesting a "guide to reverse
the trend of destination so that a
larger number of (Soviet} Jews
make aliya to Israel."
George Hantgan, executive
director of the UJF, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
the resolution, unanimously
adopted two weeks ago, grew out
of concern by local UJF members
and himself about the increasing
percentage of Soviet Jews who
have opted to come to countries
other than Israel.
HE NOTED that this concern
was voiced by UJF board
members and himself at "pro-
fessional," "lay and pro-
fessional" and "lay" meetings on
Soviet Jewish emigration.
"Our Russian Absorption
Committee has felt that all the
information we have on this
problem has only attacked the
surface manifestations and not
enough positive steps have been
taken on a national and inter-
national basis," Hantgan said.
He stated that it is the com-
mittee's hope that "more com-
munities will use the resolution
as a starting point of
suggestions. We recognize that
the document is not a cure-all,
but aspire for further discussion
and refinement throughout this
country and Israel. If the process
results in positive steps to in-
crease aliya to Israel, while still
holding to the principle of
'freedom of cl lice,' then we will
be satisfied."
THE RESOLUTION, which
supports and reaffirms the belief
that every Soviet Jew has the
right to emigrate and receive the
necessary documents enabling
him to do so without hindrance,
suggests as a first step that
"Soviet Jews exiting the USSR
shall stop for one day only in
Vienna and shall then be flown
directly to Israel, there to be
housed in an absorption center
until their final plans are made."
This will, in effect, the
resolution notes, deprive the
Soviet Union of one excuse to
curtail Soviet Jewish emigration.
Once in Israel, every creative
approach should be used to make
aliya attractive, "including con-
structive attempts through
seminars and other experiences
to give Soviet Jews a background
on Israel, Jewish identity and
Jewish culture."
EVEN JEWS who decide im-
mediately to apply for visas to
other countries "shall be en-
couraged and given an op-
portunity to travel throughout
Israel in order to become familiar
with the country and people," the
resolution continues.
"American Jewish commun-
ities (should) earmark some of
the funds they now expend on
Russian absorption to go to each
Soviet Jewish family who decides
to stay in Israel. This must be in
the form of an additional grant."
If the family desires to go to
another country, after this ex-
perience in Israel, and that
country is the United States, "it
be made clear to the family that
limited grants and loans will be
made available by the American
Jewish community. An attempt
to standardize grants for each
family ought to be made on a
national and regional basis," the
resolution states.
IF THESE steps are under-
taken, the resolution notes, Israel
will have an additional oppor-
tunity to encourage aliya; "the
monies now spent on the 'holding
period' in Rome will be expended
in Israel which needs this ad-
ditional income"; and every
Soviet Jew, after this "holding
period" who still desires to come
to the U.S., "will know that his
economic status in the U.S. will
be no better than if he remains in
Israel. Actually, we must make
Israel more attractive eco-
nomically than the U.S. for the
Soviet Jews by grants and ad-
ditional supplements to those
remaining in Israel."
The resolution also recom-
mends that a number of steps be
taken in line with the com-
mittee's recommendations.

Jewish Women Marry Gentiles
Continued from Page 1
overpowering mother may
Id the average Jewish woman
strong to deal with and so
piers Gentile women. A strong
rsonality than his mother had.
pF JEWISH women are as
3ng in their character traits as
stereotype projects them to
why is it that when they are
lolved in marriage with
Intiles, they are less likely to
their children as Jews than
vish men who are married to
mile women?
Although Halacha, Orthodox
. maintains thr* the children
i Jewish mother with a Gentile
sband are to be considered as
Ks, the reality is very different,
survey carried out in
phington, D.C., almost 20
ra ago, reported that only 24
pent of the children of Jewish
married to Gentile women
f' identified as Jews. This is
jttybad.
put the figure for Jewish
pen married to Gentile men
even worse, only 13 percent.
addition, while about 25
pent of all the Gentile spouses
Jewish men convert to
piism, only about five to ten
ent of the Gentile spouses of
fish women are involved in
i mitzvah marriages.
I DEFINE a mitzvah marriage
Vne in which the non-Jewish
use converts to Judaism. It is
of all, because such a unification
of the family's religious identity
reduces the chances of divorce by
more than fifty percent. Since
Jewish-Gentile marriages have a
divorce rate two to three times as
high as Jewish marriages, this is
indeed a significant factor in
increasing the family's stability.
Secondly, almost all of the
children who are raised in a
mitzvah marriage family will
receive a Jewish education and
identity. In the mixed marriage
situation, only 20 percent or so
will receive a Jewish education
and identity.
Finally, it is a mitzvah because
converts to Judaism make better
than average Jews. Therefore
they add strength to the Jewish
people, not only numerically, but
also qualitatively.
THE ONLY advantage that a
Jewish woman has over a Jewish
man in a mixed marriage
situation (from the perspective of
Jewish survival) is that when the
marriage breaks up (about one-
third to one-half of them do) the
children usually remain with the
wife. If her next husband is
Jewish, or if she returns to or is
drawn into Jewish community
involvement, the odds are strong
that the children will identify as
Jews.
The problem, however, remains
that the majority of the children
of a Jewish woman married to a
Gentile man will not be raised as
Jews. Since Jewish women are
usually closer to their families
than Jewish men and since the
responsibility for a child's
religious education usually lies in
the hands of the mother, why do
Jewish women do so poorly by
the Jewish people?

AJCongress Files Complaint
On Credit Discrimination
NEW YORK (WNS) There is "probable cause" that
the Morgan Guaranty Trust Co. and Citibank may be guilty of
"unlawful discrimination" by violating New York State's new
anti-boycott law, the State Division of Human Rights said here.
The American Jewish Congress which filed the complaint hailed
the finding and said it looked forward to a final determination
ordering the two banks to "stop handling discriminatory letters
of credit." The division will now seek to bring the AJCongress
