Beth Israel Urges UJA Support
The members of a special steering committee of Temple Beth
Israel have drafted and sent a letter to all their congregants
urging support for the 1977 Jewish Federation-United Jewish
Signers of the letter included current President Ron Mishhin,
and past Presidents Dr. Jack Morris, Dr. Sylvan Goldin, Jules
Shapiro and Al SiegeL
We, as fellow members of Temple Beth Israel, urge you to
support the current 1977 Jewish Federation-United Jewish Ap-
We can no longer afford the luxury of standing by while im-
portant Jewish needs must be met at home, in Israel and through-
out the world. We must finally realize that, as a people and a
religion, we are one or we are none!
IT IS our belief that each of us must focus on the question:
"How much is it worth to continue the miracle of Jewish sur-
How much is it worth to bring Jews from bondage in the Soviet
Union to freedom in Israel or to provide free education in Israel
beyond the tenth grade; or housing for and absorption of im-
migrants; or needed social services for Jews of oriental back-
ground; or health and welfare benefits for both Israel's young and
How much is it worth to provide counseling through our Jewish
Family Service; or visitation to nursing homes and hospitals by
our chaplaincy program; or education in synagogue schools and
the Hebrew Day School; or the many social and recreational
programs of our Jewish Community Center?
THE ANSWER to this question, "How much is it worth?" is
your 1977 Jewish Federation United Jewish Appeal contri-
bution. We believe it is worth a great deal to continue the miracle
of Jewish survival.
We hope that when you are called upon to attend a parlor
meeting or to give, you will open your hearts in a meaningful
manner. We must all share this responsibility together as a
Temple family. In the words used when we complete the reading
of a Book of the To rah, "Let us be strong, Let us be strong, and
we will strengthen one another."

The Kaddish is one of the oldest prayers in
Jewish litUrgy.lt has been recited countless
numbers of times since Biblical days. In
ancient times the Kaddish was the prayer that
concluded a session of Torah study. However,
in the Middle Ages it assumed special
significance as a mourner's prayer.Yet, in a
real sense it is not a prayer for the dead.
Rather, it is a prayer for the living. A moving
statement in praise of God and a plea for the
ultimate redemption and salvation of all
For the bereaved, the Kaddish is a very
personal expression honoring the soul of a
deceased parent or close relative. But at the
same time, it is a celebration of life, a pledge
to live on in the tradition of the parents and
the Jewish people.
In a time of grief, when the feeling of loss
is most acute, it becomes a true act of faith
and devotion to stand and say the words of
trust and praise expressed so beautifullv
in the Kaddish. J
Throughout our history, these wbrds have
been the bond that has held us together
through times of joy and sadness as a PeoDle
and a Faith. F
It's what makes us Jews.

Abu Daoud, the man accused of masterminding the
11972 massacre of 11 Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich,
Germany, says in an interview in the London Times that
he is willing to return to Germany to prove his innocence.
Be that as it may, for the moment our quarrel is not
with him, but with France, which summarily dismissed
him before either West Germany or Israel could move
through the complex legalities of presenting formal extra-
dition requests to the Quai d'Orsay.
The French keep insisting, most recently through a
fiercely enraged statement by President Valery Giscard
d'Estaing rejecting Western criticism of his government,
that they let Daoud go because the truth is that the
Germans really didn't want Daoud they were afraid of
the possibility of terrorist reprisals.
As for the Israelis, they say, well they didn't have juris-
diction, since the massacre didn't occur in their country.
Thank you very much, Giscard, for your opinions. But
it does seem to us that you might well have let the in-
terested parties speak for themselves.
Charles de Gaulle may long be dead, but France seems
not yet to be able to rid itself of an acromegalic vision of
its status as a world power absolutely not borne out by
anything the French have done to support it from the days
of World War II.
In the Daoud affair, the French may have given some
substance to the vision, but in releasing him, in refusing to
commit themselves to a moral action despite the conse-
quences, in continuing along the old course of Quai
d'Orsay expediency, the French show themselves to be
precisely what they are.
Among other things, that is certainly not a world power
but, as has best been said of them by others, these are a
nation of small-minded shopkeepers.
Carter's' Jewish' Aides
During the Carter campaign for the presidency, top
echelon officials and aides close to Mr. Carter told us of
the "embarrassing number" of Jews with major roles to
play in the Carter think-tank.
This was by way of comparison with the apparent
paucity of Jews in the inner sanctum of the Nixon-Ford
We think it is time now to say that pleasing as the
promise may have been, the fact itself is an irrelevancy.
So far as the Nixon-Ford administration was concerned,
perhaps the real President was Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger, and it does not appear to us that Dr.
Kissinger's Jewishness ever made a particle of difference
in the performance of his diplomatic duties.
Similarly, where so many more Jews are now involved,
and may we say presumably involved?, in the Carter ad-
ministration than was lonely Dr. Kissinger in his heyday,
we are sure that their Jewishness will not make a particle
of difference either.
A final word about Jewish aides. In our opinion, it
would be best to respect the wishes of those among them
who have repeatedly told us they are not Jewish. James
Schlesinger, the new energy chief, says he is not. Michael
Blumenthal, the new Secretary of the Treasury, for all the
similarity in background between him and Kissinger,
insists he is not.
Harold Brown, raised in The Bronx and admittedly
Jewish, has let it be known that Judaism makes no dif-
ference to him.
In our view, their wishes should be respected.

JIMMY CARTER has made it
eminently clear that he hopes to
be a populist President. Carter's
instant pardoning of the Vietnam
draft-evaders shows this more
than anything else more than
his hand-in-hand walk with his
wife during the inaugural, more
than his intention to wear blue
jeans in the White House, more
than his carrying his own suitbag
If he is successful, we will be
fortunate to see so radical a turn-
around in the presidency, which

A Menace Stalks the Nation
Friday, February 4,1977
There's a menace stalking this
nation and it's not communism.
Fundamental religions of all
varieties, Christian and Jewish
included, are threatening the
sacred rights of Americans of all
faiths or none in the name
of their own gods.
In the long run the difference
between Stalinism Leninism -
Maoism and Religious Funda-
mentalism is small because their
ultimate end is the same: Strict
Conformity to The Word.
FOR JEWS, this should be of
great concern. In modern times
we have witnessed the total-
itarian anti-Semitism W Stalin
and Hitler. In the Middle
Ages that of Torquemada and
Martin Luther. Our leadership,
the defense agencies, the pulpits,
all seem to have little under-
standing of the meaning of
religious extremism today.
This being a "Christian"
country we have become ac-
customed to the annoyances and
petty discriminations that
means. The notorious Sunday
blue laws which imposed
restrictions on those who either
did not believe or cared not to
observe Sunday as "the Sab-
bath" came out of the Protestant
The laws against birth control
information or devices were
Catholic contrivances, and the
list of violations of the First
Amendment rights through
religion-based laws is a long one
in our200-year history.
FORTUNATELY, there are
many who do not believe that the
laws and ordinances of another
day are necessarily applicable to
our time and particularly if given
the sanctification of some
religion. That, sadly, is what all
the debate really was about over
the Metro ordinance which was
amended recently to give homo-
sexuals the civil rights which
they are being denied through
discriminatory acts in housing
Sadly, because it revealed a
streak of bigotry and meanness
in so many otherwise or
seemingly otherwise nice
people. It was sad because the
one Black member of the Com-
mission played Uncle Tom in his
failure to understand that he was
there by virtue of the fight others
had waged so that Blacks were
given, at least under law. those
AS LABOR leader and Com-
missioner Bill Oliver pointed out,
it was these same types who
argued that if their god meant for
all men to be equal, he would
have made them all white, who
were no invoking that god
against homosexuals' rights as
Right out of the Old Testa-
ment, too. The Herald reported
that "The Orthodox Rabbinical
Council of Greater Miami sub-
mitted a letter to express its
opposition," joining with Anita
Bryant, who sells Florida orange
juice (any significance in the
devastation of the orange crop
last week?), and Alvin Dark,
manager of baseball players who
are known as the most dirty-
mouthed of all athletes, and a
representative of the Catholic
If you wanted to look for
crew who would impose, by forco
if necessary, their religious
beliefs on others, the Metro Com
mission chamber was an ideal
place to recruit that day.
THESE ARE people who
would choose the tough parts of
Leviticus and ignore the
prophets, but those Jews who
might be comforted by their use
of the Old Testament ought not
to forget that their ancestors also
had a handy New Testament
which, in the Fourth Gospel
(John), teaches that it was the
Jews as a people who were guilty
of the death of Jesus. And.
despite the efforts of many
Christian theologians, teachers
and even a Pope (also by the
name of John), there are many
dedicated Christians who cling to
the group libel which over the
many years of Christian
examples of following their leader
of love, has led to death and
discrimination for the Jew.
As Leo Mindlin wrote in his
column last week, deicide is an
article of faith even with people
like William F. Buckley who does
not agree with his church's
modern position on the Jews.
Think of the millions who do
not have his education or access
to information who would be
ready to mount a new Crusade
against the Jew legally, of
course, because it says so in the
New Testment, The Literal Word
By coincidence, I read recently
an article by literary critic Eliot
Freeman-Smith on Buckley,
dealing with the acceptance by
the liberal establishment of this
"VERY IMPORTANTLY, he
(Buckley) expressed disgust at
overt anti-Semitism; he was per-
suasive in suggesting that con-
servatism need not be entirely
selfish, negative, nativist or
otherwise loathsome and crack-
pot ." That believing the Jews
are guilty of the death of Jesus as
Gospel does not make him an
overt anti-Semite shows the
s hallow ness of the Buckley mind
in not recognizing that this belief
inevitably leads to anti-Semitism
The rights of these people to
believe and practice their religion
is not challenged in any way by
our refusal to permit them to
impose their beliefs and practices
on others, whether by legal
means or by the sword and fire of
the fanatic. If people want to
worship snakes, that's okay with
me provided they don't let
their snakes loose to bite others.

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Jackson Debates U.S. Oil Policy
By MINDY KLEIN
Sen. Henry Jackson (D.,
Wash.) outlined a five-point
program here Sunday for
United States energy
policy, that strongly
stressed conservation as a
means to allay the crisis
"that is so critical."
Speaking to some 300
delegates of the National
Jewish Community Re-
lations Advisory Council
Plenary Session at the
Konover Hotel on Miami
Beach, Jackson said "in
terms of front end capital
required conservation is the
cheapest way to save a
barrel of oil" and added
that he was optimistic that
the problem could be
"I am confident that we
can do it," Jackson said.
ALSO SPEAKING at the
session was Dr. Herbert Callen, a
physicist from the University of
Pennsylvania, a member of the
Philadelphia Jewish Community
Relations Council, and president
of American Professors for Peace
in the Middle East, who ap-
parently was not.
Presenting a "grim" view of
the energy situation, he said that
"1 don't see that we're going to
solve the oil problem. The energy
problem will get worse."
When Dr. Callen declared that
it is "much to our advantage to
.buy Arab oil, rather than use our
oil," murmurs of disbelief rippled
through the audience.
"OUR POLICY should be
maximum imports and minimum
production," Dr. Callen said,
cautioning that "we as Jews are
particularly vulnerable to social
disruptions that internally and
externally are very great indeed."
Dr. Callen disagreed with
.Jackson's conservation proposal
saying that conservation only
buys time, it doesn't solve the

percent of the 17 million barrels

United States were used for
transportation and that 58
percent of the petroleum is used
to produce or remove heat.
]The real culprit," Jackson
said, "is the automobile. Tell
Detroit to quit building big gas-
Jackson also said more
stringent building codes that
utilize energy-saving designs
"are of critical importance."
Dr. Callen said consumption
increases at a rate of 5 percent
per year, doubling every 14 years.
"If conservation measures cut
down the rate of usage by 50
percent then that puts us back
where we were 14 years ago. It
only buys 14 years of time."
"THE 5 PERCENT consump
tion increase cannot be stopped,
it is not too high," Dr. Callen
said, explaining that a two
percent increase in consumption
comes from a 2 percent
population increase and that a 3
percent increase in per capita
consumption each year is not
Jackson also stressed the
development of finite (coal, gaso-
line, petroleum, oil shale and geo-
thermal) and infinite (solar,
fusion and hydrogen) resources.
"There are two trillion barrels
of potential oil locked up in a rock
called oil shale," Jackson said,
but qualified his statement by
adding "oil shale (development)
is down the road a ways."
DR. CALLEN emphasized the
concept of scale in the develop-
ment of alternate energy sources.
"No technical problem in the
history of the earth has ever ap-
proached the magnitude of that
of finding and developing
alternate sources of energy," he
From the bureaucratic point of
view Jackson mentioned that a
Department of Energy and
Natural Resources is being set up
to centralize all efforts in this
Both the senator and the
professor agreed that mobilizing
the nation to face the crisis is
"It behooves us (as Jews) to
explain to the American people
the gravity of the situation," Dr.
"We must mobilize this nation
for the greatest crisis that we
face, domestically and inter-
nationally," Jackson concluded.
Israel's Air Force to Play
Lesser Role in Years Ahead?
TEL AVIV Israel has a brilliant modern Air Force. Will
the Air Force however, play as important a role in case of war as
one imagines at present? Zev Schiff, the military expert of
"Haaretz," in commenting on this matter, writes that there
have been expressions of doubt lately, regarding the role of the
Air Force in a new war.
He quotes Gen. Peled, Chief of Israel's Air Force, that
superiority in the air is indeed important for Israel but it is not
everything. Gen. Peled stressed that it is not possible to assure
the entire defense of the State only with a strong Air Force.
THE YOM KIPPUR War proved that also. Those who had
exaggerated hopes on that score were disappointed. Schiff
quotes other skeptics, who point out as follows: The Americans
lost the war in Vietnam although they had the best air vessels
and controlled the skies over the front.
Schiff, however, answers the skeptics: The Americans set
themselves limited goals in Vietnam from the very beginning,
which they didn't want to exceed. For this reason, the best air-
planes could not be the decisive factor in such a war.
ISRAEL, on the other hand, finds itself in another
situation altogether: since the Arabs will surely conduct a total
war and Israel will have to reply in kind. In such a case, the
most modern planes have completely different missions.
Schiff arrives at the conclusion that Israel will have air
superiority in the '80s also, but no one can guarantee that the
skies over Israel will be as clean of enemy aircraft in the future

In the Middle East, the Secretary
of State succeeded in pressing
back the influence of the Soviet
Union; SALT I agreement
remains a useful step on the road
to nuclear disarmament if there is
success in concluding the sub-
sequent agreement and in doing
this, avoiding the mistakes of the
first agreement; Kissinger s
much criticized realpolitik has
brought continuity to America's
Russian policy which previously
vascillated between total an-
tagonism (as in the cold war) or a
total community of interests (as
in the Second World War); as a
mixture between rivalry and a
partial community of interests,
say in the avoidance of a nuclear
war, this policy will continue to
be pursued under Carter too.
"Perhaps the new men will lack
the intellectual brilliance which
Kissinger possessed. NATO
Secretary General Luos in taking
leave of Kissinger characterized
him as great." According to
Jacob Burckhardt. the decision
regarding historical greatness
depends at times on the per-
sonality, at times more on the
effect." All in all in the case of
Kissinger, it is more the per-
sonality. Therefore we too shall
miss him. Good Bye. Henry!"
As to the Carter team, the
press praised Carter's telephone
contact with Chancellor Schmidt
even before his inauguration. The
press also commented upon
Carter's announcement that he
would send his Vice President to
Western Europe and Japan right
after inauguration day.
IN THE Neue Ruhr Zeitung it
was noted: "For German policy,
Carter seems already today to
guarantee the continuity in
relations which has grown in the
past 30 years a good portent
for the years of his presidency
and for the multiple personal
contacts which lie ahead."
IN THE Frankfurter Neue
Presse it was opined that "The
announced visit this week of
the new American Vice President
Mondale to Western Europe and
Japan is more than a diplomatic
gesture of politeness on the part
of a new administration in
Washington. Mondale's visit can
be a good beginning to show that
the Government in Washington
is drawing away from secret dip-
lomatic acrobatics and from
going it alone, and in the future
will take more strongly into its
calculations the views and con-
cerns of allies and friends.

At the Plenary: Our Economic Problems Need Solving
In their own self-interest,
Jewish groups should get
involved in trying to solve
the economic problems
plaguing America, two
leading Jewish community
relations specialists coun-
seled the Plenary Session of
the National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory
Council here this week.
"With or without us,"
said Seymour Samet,
director of domestic affairs
of the American Jewish
Committee, "the ideolog-
ical and political battle-
ground for minorities in the
year ahead will deal with
new social and economic
SAMET, former director of the
Miami office of the Americai
Jewish Committee, said that
"with us or without us, others
often with less skill and some
with less integrity will not
hesitate to press their views."
At the same session, Howard
Rieger, a nationally-known
expert on urban affairs, urged
delegates to try to rekindle some
of the activity that led to the
social reforms of the 1960s.
Rieger, director of community
relations and urban affairs of the
Jewish Community Federation of
Cleveland, said that such activity
is necessary not only to help meet
the needs of the country, but also
to "strengthen our own
The Plenary is the highest
policy-making body of the
NJCRAC, which coordinates the
community relations work of nine
national Jewish agencies and 101
Jewish community groups across
One of the major problems
pointed out by Rieger is that "the
old coalitions (that worked to-
gether for social change in the
'60s) have truly died."
Now that the struggle of the
'60s for civil rights legislation is
over, "economics have become, to
a significant extent, the present-
day intergroup relations agenda.
Yet this agenda, and of itself, is
incapable of generating ongoing
coalition activities at the local

Jewish college graduates are
among those hardest hit by lack
of suitable jobs. And even where
Jews are not directly troubled by
joblessness, they pay for it.
Unemployment, Samet said, has
been shown to be responsible for
the higher crime rate. Fur-
thermore, the government is
forced to raise taxes to cope with
the various problems created by
lack of work.
Citing further examples of how
Jewish communities are being
affected by the crisis of the cities,
Rieger said there is a drastic need
for work in at least the following
areas: school desegregation
problems; hunger; community
development; translating the
promises of the new admin-
istration into action, and Black-
Until truly effective coalitions
can be built, he said, perhaps
Jewish groups can start work on
"Unilateral intervention in
areas of self-interest," he said,
"such as stabilization," he said,
borhoods with Jewish
population, can sometimes be
more effective than trying to

Both Samet and Rieger con-
cluded by stressing the necessity
for Jewish groups to get moving
on domestic problems.
"... the credibility of Jewish
organizations depends to a very
large extent upon the manner in
which they are perceived in the
general community," Rieger
Samet agreed, but he warned,
"No matter what we do or say,
there will be those who suspect us
of being too radical and a threat
to their vested interests. Others
will accuse us of being too
moderate and too slow. These are
risks we all take when we venture
into new territories. They are

"The America of 1977 rejects
accusations of ubiquitous Com-

concerned about even the real

domestic concerns, especially
economic and racial problems."

However, they were minutes

Giscard d'Estaing stressed:

death f or anyone with an Open TT1in6 aBOUt It
DR. ELISABETH Kubler-Ross, author of On Death
and Dying, recommends Dr. Raymond Moody's book
for "anyone with an open mind." His book. Life After
Life (Bantam, 187p., SI.95), is an ongoing study of
people who have experienced "clinical death" and have
been revived to tell what happened to them while they
were dead. The book suggests similar recurring phen-
omena in hundreds of cases.
Kubler-Ross, herself a well-known authority on the
care of dying people, has come to some of the same
seemingly fantastic conclusions on life after death.
DOROTHY RABINOWITZS New Lives: Survivors
of the Holocaust Living in America (Knopf, 242p.,
$8.95) is a compassionate and revealing look at the
arrival and settlement of Holocaust victims in America.
The catalyst for the series of experiences are the 1972
deportation hearings of Hermine Rraunsteiner, a
German woman living in Queens, who had been
identified as a former SS guard. Rabinowitz shows us
the care and difficulty with which survivors bear exact
Rabinowitz follows the release of each survivor from
the camps. She traces their patterns of behavior in
response to a variety of experiences in America: from
one refugee's settlement in a small town in Texas to the
conflict another survivor feels over America s in-
volvement in the Vietnam War. The way in which
survivors have knit their lives back together is a
growing area of interest.
A RELATED concern is the emerging body of
literature written by the children of Holocaust sur-
vivors. Their psychological and emotional problems are
dealt with in the paperback Living After the
Holocaust: Reflections by the Post-War Generation m
America edited by Lucy Y. Steinitz with David M.
Szonyi (Block, 149p.,$3.50).
The book is an anthology of personal narratives,
poems and conversations, much of which is written by
the sons and daughters of survivors. The editors have
also included sensitive articles by young adults who are
not related to survivors, except through a deep
emotional tie to the Holocaust.

Coming to Screen
HOLLYWOOD "Madam Kitty," an Italian-made picture
starring the Swedish actress Ingrid Thulin, Austrian Helmut
Berger, British newcomer Terese Ann Savoy, Yugoslav performer
Hckim Fehmin, John Ireland from the United States, the Italian
Stefano Satta Flores. and Tina Aumont (daughter of Jean Pierre
Aumont). has been shown to us privately by Trans-American
Films, the U.S. distributors.
Director Tinto Brass claims that the shocking story of "Madam
Kitty" was derived from a composite of documents collected during
the Nuremberg trials and / or found in German and Allied libraries
after the war. Brass is attempting to show to his international
audience the depth of dehumanization to which a nation could sink
under the lust for power of the individual.
SALON KITTY, a refined house of pleasure in Berlin in the mid-
1930s, is being bugged and organized as a listening post by the
hierarchy of the Third Reich to spy not only on political enemies
but more so on "dedicated" party members and army officers who
before or after an act of lovemaking inadvertently might sputter
out a few remarks of dissatisfaction, propose defection or leak
secret military information to unauthorized persons.
Our own network of clandestine tape recordings, in recent years,
could have mushroomed into such monstrous proportions involving
physical threats and blackmail, had not the Watergate investi-
gations put a stop to that nonsense and thereby shown to the world
that the United States is not not the proper breeding ground for a
"MADAM KITTY," set into an ornate mansion of marble and
mirrors, lays bare the mentality behind the facade of racial purity
in Nazi German. It illustrates that Hitler didn't live up to this
claim to end depravity and perversion and bring about an era of
wholesome family life but on the contrary, through the example set
by him and his cohorts, initiated a wave of sexual aberrations, of
homosexuality, sadism and masochism.
We remember that in 1933 cheap nightclubs and luscious en-
tertainment centers lit up with neon ornaments shaped as
swastikas; that honky-tonks, streets with brothels were flooded
with Nazi flags and emblems. The lowest of the low, together with
the high and mighty, were proud to identify with the cause of
Ingrid Thulin is the tragicomic figure of Kitty Schmidt who
engaged in a pretty dirty business, had remained clean and would
not tolerate the taping of intimate conversations between her girls
and the customers once she became aware that the Gestapo had
installed such bugging equipment in her private rooms.
HELMUT BERGER personifies the young fanatic Nazi who
seeks domination at any price; the picture marks his screen reunion
with Ingrid Thulin since they co-starred in Luchino Visconti's "The
Damned" in an Oedipal love-hate relationship between a spoiled
heir and his coldly beautiful mother.
Terese Ann Savoy, currently in Tinto Brass' "Caligula," is the
fanatic Hitler youth recruited to charm, spy and report; Bekim
Fehmin, the disillusioned officer returning from the battlefield who
senses the insanity of Germany's war.
Though a bit too rough on the edges and often too explicit,
"Madam Kitty" has a story to tell of validity to our time, one easily
forgotten when traveling through the forests, mountains, meadows
and lake areas of Germany which seem to breathe contentment,
solemnity and a deep religious feeling .
"JACOB THE LIAR," which comes to us fiam the film studios
of East Berlin, takes us from the*refined, though decayed at-
mosphere of the ruling classes ofNazi Germany to the disinherited
and disfranchised the Jews sealed off in the ghettos of Poland
who are condemned to starvation or deportation toward the ex-
termination centeiflbf the East.
The title hero beautifully portrayed by Vlastimil Brodsky, is a
simple man who tries to interject courage into the minds of his
fellow Jews by telling them of Allied victories he has heard about
on a radio whichdoesn't exist and if it had been in operation could
cost him his life and endanger the others.
Our Sunday Blue
laws Coming Unstuck
CONNECTICUT and New York have already
cancelled out traditional Sunday closing laws,
Rhode Island isn't enforcing them, and Massa-
chusetts is warming up for the legislative cut-off
of its ancient Lord's Day statutes.
Many devout Sunday worshippers deplore such
moves. But economic and political considerations
are tall on the landscape. Which is to say that
some Massachusetts merchants are tired of losing
supermarket, discount house, liquor, and cigaret
trade to New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
Besides, the state needs revenue.
LEADERS OF the Massachusetts Senate
figure that by making repeal of the Sunday laws a
part of the next tax package. Bay State mer-
chants will come out $125 million to the good
while the Commonwealth picks up $20 million
more in taxes.
The idea for a "day-of-rest" law didn't originate
with moderns. "Remember the Sabbath day, to
keep it holy," it is written in Exodus 20:8. And
many Christians who understandably insist that
Sunday is the Sabbath might be startled to be
told that Jesus observed the holy day of rest on
the traditional Jewish Saturday, not Sunday.
Some historians record that Sunday was
eventually designated the Sabbath because it was
resurrection day as marked by Christians. But
more than 16 centuries ago, Constantine decreed
that "all judges and city people and the craftsmen
shall rest upon the venerable day of the Sun." So
the ancient Sun-god won out that time.
AND TO confuse the picture further, take note
that in the middle of the 19th century, a New
York court ruled that the state legislature was
authorized to "protect the Christian Sabbath
from desecration," adding "Our laws for the
observance of the Sabbath are founded upon the
command of God at Sinai that we should
remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy."
Nor is that the end of crisscrossing our way
through the maze. Consider the Kentucky gover-
nor who vetoed a bill to liberalize the Blue Grass
state's Sunday law with the strange comment
that in his considered judgment the legislature
had no right "to repeal one of the Ten Com-
SOME THERE are who remember the Crown
Kosher Market case involving the Jewish market
owner in Springfield, Mass., who reasoned, and
reasoned well, that he was entitled to cater to his
Jewish trade on Sunday inasmuch as his religious
beliefs would certainly not leave him free to do
business on the Sabbath day that runs back to
When the Crown case reached the U.S.
Supreme Court, Mr. Justice Warren insisted that
the whole point of the Sunday laws was to
prevent overwork and unfair competition.
But think of all the Sunday work folks have
carried on through decades of American history.
For Americans, the numb of the complex
Sunday (or Lord's Day) Law is this: Puritan zeal,
teamed with church-state Protestant power in the
infancy of our nation, established Sunday as the
American holy day. The seal of government was
stamped upon the Christian Sabbath as the of-
ficial day of rest.
eaaly taenfcs Cleapmg In
Israel's election Campaign
HAIFA Israel's electoral process is a
strange, fantastically non-democratic exercise of
the democratic process. It is almost impossible
for the outsider to understand. For the moment,
let us provide the reader overseas with a guide of
what to watch for in the way of developments in
the next few months before elections.
What are Rabin's chances of coming back again
as Prime Minister? First of all, he has to be
selected by his own party, Labor, to be its
standard bearer. Three years ago, when he was
given the nod by the party, he just barely edged
out Shimon Peres. The latter has now openly
announced his intention of competing with Rabin,
and the intra-party struggle is on.
THEY ARE NOT the only two. Abba Eban has
tossed his hat into the Labor ring as well. For the
time being he has discarded diplomacy, and is
waging an aggressive and determined campaign.
It should be borne in mind that whereas Peres is
considered a hawk one who favors few con-
cessions to the Arabs Eban is known as a dove
one who believes that Israel should be much
more ready to compromise than it has been in the
past. All three, Rabin, Peres, Eban, are of course
To win the nomination of his party in February
Rabin will need within the next few weeks some
dramatic success, some public relations coup,
which will re-establish his image in the public eye!
Even if he is chosen by Labor, he must of course
still lead the party to victory in the May elections.
THE PRINCIPAL challenger, at the moment,
seems to be the perennial candidate, Menahem
Begin. In eight elections he has led his party
(Herut, Gahal, Likud) to glorious defeat. At his
best, he could never mobilize much more than 30
percent of the vote, well behind Labor. Ye Begin
and his followers believe that this year things will
be different. The country is fed up with the same
old leadership, they say, and it's time for a
Things are different this year, but in a different
sense. For the first time a new constellation of
civic and other public personalities has been
created to challenge Labor's hegemony. Led by
the distinguished archeologist, Yigal Yadin they
comprise almost exclusively men and women who
have not hitherto been actively engaged in any of
the existing political parties. They have avoided
commitment to detailed specifics in matters of
foreign affairs or the economy on the grounds
that what Israel needs before anything else is a
house-cleaning in Government. Their major
principle, therefore, is to bring about a change in
the obsolete, unwieldy electoral system
. ITS WEAKNESSES may be listed briefly. It
is so new and young that it may not be able to
organize sufficiently in time for the elections.

chairman of the event, looks on.
the most urgent problem facing
President Jimmy Carter in the
first days of his Administration
is summarized in a cryptic
national security memo known
only as "Policy Study No. 38."
The study deals with the energy
crisis and warns that the United
States is dangerously dependent
on foreign oil. The available
supply of natural gas is also
dwindling, states the memo.
Americans are painfully aware
of the shortfall in heating fuel
supplies as aubfreezing tem-
peratures grip the nation.
Schools, businesses and factories
have been forced to close to
conserve precious fuel supplies.
And the worst weather, claim
meteorologists, is yet to come.
MEANWHILE, the secret
energy briefing papers urge that
the United States end its "heavy
reliance on oil and natural gas."
According to the papers, it took
the nation 60 years to switch
from coal to oil and gas. This
time, we don't have 60 years.
The present world reserve of
700 billion barrels of oil will be
exhausted by the end of this
century. Yet, the United States
ranks a pitiful 17th among the
industrial powers in energy
Though former President
Gerald Ford set up a task force
more then a year go to find a
reliable supply of energy imports
to tide us over, infighting among
federal agencies killed several
policy proposals. The result is
that the nation still has no energy
According to the secret
national security memo, the oil-
producing countries are expected
to maintain their stranglehold on
oil supplies until 1965. The memo
also predicts that oil prices will
continue to rise.
THAI TALES: We have ob-
tained secret cables from the U.S.
Embassy in Thailand that reveal
the lush, Southest Asian country
would like some nuclear weapons
to defend itself against Com-
A Thai foreign affairs adviser,
Thanat Khoma, told U.S. em-
bassy officials that his country
fears a Vietnamese attack.
Thanat warned that the Thai
Army would be no match for the
battle-tested Communist troops.
The U.S. embassy in Bangkok
passed on Thanat's comments in
a series of classified cables to the
State Department in Washing-
ton. According to the cables,
Thanat mentioned th epossibility
of acquiring "unconventional"
weapons. "Unconventional," said
the U.S. diplomats, can only
BUT THANAT didn't ask for
nuclear weapons without offering
wme special benefits. He spoke
of providing U.S. corporations
with "a favorable investment
climate," and tempted U.S.
officials with talk of oil and gas.
Specifically, the cables refer to
"promising discoveries of natural
gaa in the Gulf of Siam." Multi-
national oil companies are only
waiting for the go-ahead from the
Thai government before they
start exploratory drilling.
Though State Department
spokesmen refuse to comment on
the cables, U.S. relations with
Thailand have been shaky for
some time. Since the debacle in
Vietnam, leftist Thais have been
demonstrating for an American
pull-out in Thailand and U.S.
defense bases in the country have
been drastically cut.
So without a large American
presence in Thailand, officials of
the Thai government feel they
must take drastic precautions.
American diplomats are unlikely
to accede to their wishes.
The U.S. Air Force has more than
two million gallons of con-
taminated herbicide on its hands
and no one knows what to do
During the Vietnam War, the
Air Force sprayed clouds of
defoliants on the thick jungles of
Southeast Asia. The purpose was
to clear the hind of hiding places
and deprive enemy troops of the
bountiful plenty of the rice
paddies. One of these defoliants,
known as "Herbicide Orange,"
was so potent that former Presi-
dent Richard Nixon ordered the
Air Force to stop using it.
Since supplies of the noxious
chemical were produced to meet
the needs of a protracted war, the
presidential order left the Air
Force with 2,300,000 gallons of
the defoliant in storage. There are
1.4 million gallons in storage on
Johnston Island in the South
Pacific and another 660,000
gallons in Gulf port, Miss.
WHILE PLANNING to
destroy the herbicide, scientists
for the Environmental Protection
Agency found that the whole lot
was contaminated by a deadly
chemical known as Dioxin.
Though Herbicide Orange itself
is an unpleasant enough mixture,
with Dioxin added, it could wipe
out not only foliage, but animals
When Dioxin was released into
the atmosphere after a factory
explosion in the northern Italian
town of Seveso last year, it killed
all the foliage for miles around.
People and livestock were
evacuated from the area im-
mediately, and the land sur-
rounding the town may be un-
usable for years. Dioxin has also
been proven to cause birth
defects in animals.
THE AIR FORCE originally
planned to incinerate the con-
taminated herbicide at sea, but
environmentalists warned of
devastating results. So another
plan was developed calling for re-
processing through charcoal
It works, but still leaves the
problem of what to do with the
Dioxin-contaminated filters So
far, there's no solution to that
problem and the Air Force and
Agency scientists are still at the

Vance Slated to Go
On Tour of Middle East
World Zionists Plan Meet
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
(JTA) Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance will visit
Israel and four neighboring
Arab states at the end of
February or early in March
in the first of two steps the
Carter Administration is
planning to deal with the
Middle East situation, it
was confirmed here.
The second step, accord-
ing to informed sources,
will be President Carter's
meetings in Washington,
beginning early next
spring, with leaders of the
five countries that Vance
will visit. State Depart-
ment officials declined to
discuss Vance's trip.
' BUT THEY acknowledged
that the trip would take place
within a month to six weeks and
that Vance will visit Egypt,
Syria, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and
Israel presumably in that order,
to assess prospects for new nego-
tiations leading to an Arab-
Reports of the Vance trip
followed the Secretary of State's
meetings here with the Ambas-
sadors of the four Arab countries
at the State Department and a
conversation he had with Israeli
Ambassador Simcha Dinitz.
The "crash diplomatic ven-
ture," as one source described it,
was prompted only partly by the
Arab "peace offensive." Officials
here indicated that the primary
consideration was Vance's
assessment of the general
situation in the Middle East.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
of Israel is reported to have been
invited to Washington in late
March to become the first Middle
East leader to meet with Carter.
HIS VISIT would take place
about six weeks before Israel's
general elections scheduled for
May 17. Sources here said that in
the event that Israel's ^abor
Party decides at its convention
next month to replace Rabin with
Defense Minister Shimon Peres,
both Peres and Rabin would be
invited to come to Washington in
The Israeli visit will be
followed in April with visits by
President Anwar Sadat of Egypt
and Crown Prince Fahd Ibn
Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia.
King Hussein of Jordan is said to
have tentatively accepted an
invitation to visit Washington
early in May.

Issues Facing the New Congress
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
(JTA) Legislative ac-
tions of special Jewish con-
cern and interest will soon
reach preliminary stages in
the 95th Congress. The
confirmation hearings of
President Jimmy Carter's
Cabinet, including the
thumbs down on Theodore
Sorensen as director of the
CIA, and other top Admin-
istration officers, who must
have the Senate's approval,
have already brought out
their views on the issues.
The breadth of sponsor-
ship of bills in both Houses
will be another barometer
of attitudes. Among the
legislative measures to face
Congress and the new
Administration are military
and economic aid to Israel
and to its Arab neighbors.
THEN THERE are delivery of
arms to Saudi Arabia, Jordan
Renewal of full U.S. mem-
bership in UNESCO which con-
tinues to condemn Israel while
lifting one "illegitimate" barrier
Ratification of the 30-year-old
Genocide Treaty which actually
may be voted into law by the
Senate this time;
Outlawing the Arab boycott
against Israel insofar as
Americans are concerned in any
' OTHER MEASURES include
1 nuclear plants for Egypt and
, Israel, legislation that may
, circumvent the Jackson-Vanik
and Stevenson Harrison pro-
visos of the current U.S. trade
and credit laws with relation to
U.S. government credits for the
Soviet Union and its emigration
policy, fresh Congressional con
siderations of the Helsinki ac
cords in the light of Soviet
flouting of its human rights pro-
visions, and consideration of
energy programs to lessen
dependence on Arab oil.
Israel has requested $2.3
billion in military and economic
assistance in view of the steep
rise in the costs of needed
weapons and other goods.
The Ford Administration cut it
by $800 million. The Carter Cabi-
net's thinking has yet to be
indicated. Egypt in two years
received economic aid of about $2
billion, which is more than the
allocations of economic aid to
Israel in the same period.
EGYPT IS now asking for
"defensive" military weapons,
too. The U.S. supplied Egypt
with six giant military aircraft
the C-1308 last year after Con-
gress extracted a pledge from the
Administration that it would not
give any additional military
equipment to Egypt for the re-
mainder of 1976.
Legislation is expected to be
introduced early in the new
session against the Arab boycott.
It will be along the lines of the
compromise informally worked
out by Senate and House
members when the legislator
before both chambers was
stymied by Senate Republican

so certain. They seem to agree
that the UNESCO vote in
Nairobi in November is a good
start in the right direction but its
two related resolutions attacking
Israel outweigh that.
RESTORATION of Israel to
UNESCO membership, pro-
Israelis feel, is not a favor to
Israel but rectification of a wrong
that never should have occurred
and is therefore insufficient to
justify renewal of U.S. payments
to that UN body.
These sympathizers resent the
resolution at Nairobi condemning
Israeli educational programs in
the territories it occupies. They
point out that in the nine years
that Israel has been in control of
the occupied areas it has pro-
vided the Arabs with educational
facilities and teaching that not
only are better than Britain or
Jordan when they were in con-
trol, but the best the Arabs there
have ever had.
"The Arabs know this," one
observer said. The other Nairobi
resolution that condemns Israel
over its archaeological exca-
vations in Jerusalem is also
resented because UNESCO's own
authority has praised Israel's
work. Furthermore, when
UNESCO was asked to send a
delegation to the site, Israel
accepted the proposal but instead
of sending a delegation the
majority in UNESCO adopted a
condemnation of Israel. Then,
after Israel was condemned the
majority decided it would send a
delegation a move regarded as
obviously tainted before it

Rabbi Stephen S. Wise.
In announcing cancellation of tours that visit France, Mrs.
Levine said: "We cannot just stand by. We feel it is imperative
to find a way to respond to French cowardice and indifference to
the obligations men and nations owe each other if they are to
develop a world in which innocent civilians can live in safety."
Noting it was an Air France plane that was hijacked to
Entebbe last June, Mrs. Levine said: "The French pilot of that
aircraft elected to remain with his passengers until their safety
was assured. We wish French politicians shared his humanity."
THE AMERICAN Jewish Congress leader said it was "an
act of unparalleled arrogance for France to reject as 'inter-
ference in French domestic affairs' the American government's
condemnation of Daoud's release.
"This is the classic device used to screen governmental
immorality from external notice or criticism," Mrs. Levine said,
adding: "This time it will not work." She continued:
"We do not know how others will wish to respond. For
ourselves, we have decided that we will no longer send
American Jewish Congress members to France and we will no
longer employ the services of Air France.
"WE CANNOT continue to visit a country in which
solemn international obligations are ignored and principle is
cheapened either through cravenness or political expediency.
"We urge all men and women who abhor terrorism to com-
municate their own responses to the French government.
Whatever else results, let the leaders of France at last come to
understand that they are accountable for their irresponsible and
futile attempts to purchase immunity by endangering the lives
More I what?
More of a cigarette.That's
With more of the good

The smooth easy draw.
The slow-burning smoke

for your money, more time
More. It's like any really good
cigarette. And much more.
