At a recently held symposium
in Washington on the strategic

time that Israel shot down a
Soviet AN-2 transport aircraft en
route to Syria in 1973 to let the
Russians know that Israel was

flew 750 miles, and shot one
down. The Soviets got the
message," Gen. Keegan said.
He made these disclosures in
the course of a lengthy panel dis-
cussion with three other retired
senior officers and leading
military thinkers: Admiral Elmo
R. Zumwalt, Jr., former Chief of
Naval Operations; Lt.-Gen.
Arthur S. Collins, former Deputy
Commander in Chief of the
U.S. Army in Europe; and Lt.
Gen. Benjamin O. Davis, former
Deputy Commander in Chief of
the U.S. Strike Command.
All four agreed on Israel's
strategic value to the United
States, but Gen. Keegan was the
most emphatic.

Hefty Turnout Predicted For
Richards/ WECARE Day
Fort Lauderdale Correspondent
All signs point to a record out-
pouring of shoppers for the Aug.
3 sales jamboree that will take
place in Richards Department
Store at Lauderhill Mall for the
benefit of WECARE and the
Jewish Federation.
That's the view of Sally
Fridovich, the Richards / WE-
CARE Committee chairman as
she took time out from putting
the finishing touches on the Sales
Day arrangements to discuss
what she said was "the mush-
rooming and exhilarating
response" coming from all parts
of South Florida.
QUESTIONED about that,
she said that news of the Sales
Day in Dade and Palm Beach
Counties was bringing "a flood of
inquiries" and the "certainty
that the Breward crowds will be
augmented by sizable groups of
visitors from Greater Miami,
Boca Raton, Delray, Boynton
Beach and the Palm Beaches."
"It's going to be one great day
for everyone," she declared.
Mrs. Fridovich is the wife of a
former president of the Jewish
Federation. She returned here
just after July 4 following a swift
visit to Israel where she and her
husband were house-hunting.

New Way Found to Detect Drugs
A new scientific method for positively iden-

Weizmann Institute's Isotope Research Depart-
ment, has been given top marks by the Criminal
Identification Division of the Israel Police,
headed by Assistant Commander Meir ("Mike")
In a letter to Dr. Jehuda Yinon. an Institute
researcher who played a central role in developing
the method. Kaplan stated that the technique had
proven itself in day-to-day operations over an
extended period of time.
Dr. Yinon's method is based on a novel instru-
mental approach known as chemical ionization
mass spectrometry. It involves the introduction
of large quantities of gas (methane or isobutane)
into the ionization chamber of the mass spec-
trometer, which simultaneously strenghtens and
simplifies the "signals" received when the instru-
ment detects the presence of drugs or explosives

to defend whatever position it

Israeli intelligence input than it
does to any other single source of
Gen. Keegan made the point
that Israels effective intelligence
capability has kept the Soviets
at bay in the Middle East, and
thus far has prevented the more
radical Arab regimes from cap-
turing and seizing Saudi
HE ADDED: There were at
least three attempts in the last 15
years to o /erthrow Saudi Arabia
through the assassination of the
King. (
"We know that in two of those
attempts it was Israeli intel-
ligence alone that made it
possible to frustrate and thwart
those attempts, as it was Israeli
intelligence that on one occasion,
and possibly two, prevented
radical Arab KGB-backed ef-
forts to assassinate Sadat. So
Israel has been a powerful
stabilizing force."
Both Adm. Zumwalt and Gen.
Keegan were critical of the Carter
Administration's decision to
supply F-15 fighter bombers to
Saudi Arabia. Gens. Collins and
Davis supported the sale.
ADM. ZUMWALT said that
l.i F I" iran-fii "will havr the
result of reducing the power
advantage of Israel in the Middle
hust It will, in Hi) judgment,
accelerate the rate at which the
Soviet Union supplies military
equipment to the radical Arab
That is, an immediate coun-
teraction by the Soviets will be
more equipment to Libya, to
Syria, to Iraq .
Viewed in that light, I feel the
failure of Congress to restrain the
Presidential initiative can have
only very disadvantageous
results for U.S. security in the
Middle East over the long haul."
GEN. KEEGAN, who argued
that the Arab-Israeli balance is
very, very fragile," said that
what is not appreciated is that
the 1973 war was almost lost by
I srael.
'Had the five Syrian armored
divisions penetrating through the
Golan had the commanders of
those divisions merely talked to
each other on the radio to
coordinate their attack, a gap
which several Soviet officers
flying helicopters over the Golan
Heights were trying to fill but
failed to do it is generally
agreed by the senior Israeli
generals, most of whom I know,
that the Syrian armored columns
could have occupied Tel Aviv
within two days.
So what I am suggesting,"
Gen. Keegan continued, "is that
the situation can be profoundly
destabilized by the F-15."
Funeral Pre-arrangement.
It doesn't mean life is over.
Making funeral arrange-
ments in advance doesn't mean
there's not a lot of good years left.
But, like a will, it's another method
of family protection. Today, more
and more people look with favor
on the remarkable new Guardian
Plan. The Guardian Plan helps
people avoid making funeral de-
cisions when they may be most
unprepared alone.
It enables you to decide now
about funeral arrangements at a
price you believe is best. It assures
you that the price of selections you
make will not increase in the
future, regardless of inflation.
And it avoids the necessity for the
family, someday, using funds
needed for living expenses to pay
for funeral expenses. You pay for
The Guardian Plan now, in conven-
ient, interest-free installments, if
desired. But, every cent you've paid
will be refunded in the event you
change your mind at a future date.
Advance funeral planning
using The Guardian Plan doesn't
mean life is over. It is a common
sense answer to a difficult pro-
blem. It is a reassurance that
brings peace of mind. It protects
loved ones.
One of our experienced,
authorized representatives will
explain the many ways The
Guardian Plan can meet your
needs. There's no obligation. Call

Friday. Jujy 21
Thank You, Richards
For the second year in succession, Richards
Department Store at the Lauderhill Mall is devoting a full
sales day for the benefit of the Jewish Federation and the
WECARE Volunteer program. Richards will give the
Federation / WECARE 10 percent of its receipts. It will
also make a gift of tl for everv charge account approved
by its credit department in connection with the Aug. 3
sales day. The rest depends on the public.
If the crowds of shoppers are large as it appears
they will be, judging by the estimate of Mrs. Sally
Fridovich, chairman of the sales day committee the
Federation and WECARE will benefit handsomely.
What impresses most is that Richards a business
enterprise cares about WECARE and the work of the
Jewish Federation. That's an accolade in itself. Oir good
hope is that all of our friends and neighbors will return the
compliment. Thank you, Richards.
The Sharansky, Ginzburg Trials
One can only pause in admiration and sheer wonder at
the courage of Soviet dissidents Anatoly Sharansky and
Alexander Ginzburg. Both men have had fearsome
judgments pronounced against them by the Moscow and
Kaluga courts where each, respectively, has been tried.
Sharansky was on trial for passing state secrets to an
American newsman. Ginzburg was being tried for "anti-
Soviet agitation and propaganda."
The prosecution wants Sharansky sentenced to a
fifteen year prison term, most of it at hard labor. Ginzburg
has drawn eight years at hard labor. For what? Yes. for
confronting their own government with its base refusal to
honor the Helsinki Accords on human rights accords
agreed to and signed by the USSR.
The initial harassment of both men by the brutal
Soviet secret police, the framed-up charges, the trials so in
keeping with the oppressive and theatrical style set in the
1930s by Stalin's favorite prosecutor, the late Andrei
Vishinsky. and the parade of agents provocateurs acting
as witnesses are reminders once more of what and how a
police state is and behaves.
But this time there is a difference a difference
supplied by the President of the United States. Mr. Carter
has protested the trials. He has said flatly that Sharansky
was not an agent of the CIA, as charged. He has called on
Brezhnev to live up to the Helsinki agreements.
All of this is without precedent in American-Soviet
relations. We salute the President for his resolute stand.
Even so. we offer a caveat. It is one thing to protest.
It is another to give it force. Secretary of State Vance
condemned the trials in strong language but then said
that his protest would not affect his meeting with Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko on a continuation of
the SALT negotiations.
The USSR has as much to gain from SALT as we do.
They must be told once and for all to live up to the
Helsinki agreement as the acid test of any other
agreement they may sign with us. What good would their
signature be on a SALT accord if they treated it the way
they do the Helsinki accord? Come to think of it, SALT
has as much to do with human rights as Helsinki. What's
involved in SALT is actually the purest of rights the
right to life.
We owe it to Anatoly Sharansky and Alexander
Ginzburg for confronting us all with these fateful issues.
Proud as we are of them as men of courage and a passion
for life, we are proud of them, too, as fellow Jews. We pray
for them and their families.
That Jewish Defense League!
Leave it to the Jewish Defense League to come up
with a snappy slogan. "Every Jew a .22". What it wants is

The Devitalized Presidency
IT IS increasingly apparent,
for all the xealous propaganda to
the oontrary about how hard he
works, that it is taking Jimmy
Carter too long to learn how to be
President. The result is a flaccid,
devitalized performance in office
that leaves him and the nation
rudderless in the eyes of the
The President's trip to Ger-
many this week for an economic
conference is more than that.
Primarily, it is an evaluative
session in which Mr. Carter must
defuse Helmut Schmidt's charge
against him that his failures in
energy and fiscal policy are .

alone to America.
More, that Mr. Carter's view,
on the neutron bomb and nuclear
weapons in the event of a Soviet
thrust westward are arcane and
if they prevail, could well wipe'
out Europe in the thirty to sixty
days we expect NATO to go it

Ginzburg dissident trials a
Moscow proves the point, if
Chancellor Schmidt has not
already done so, that he is
conducting a devitalized id.
On its face, we ought to be
thrilled by Mr. Carter's human
rights stand. Right? Wrong -
not in this case. Assuming thit
Mr. Carter is acting out of deep
conviction, why is it wrong?
The answer is that it is in-
consistent with our other Soviet
relationships as the President
sees and conducts them. The
result is that he has fallen into
the trap of accepting the trials of
the dissidents as an internal
Soviet matter rather than as part
of the far grander Soviet scheme
designed to infect the Middle
East and Africa with the plague
of anti-western fever.

This being one of my paranoid
moments. I share with you my
suspicion that some rare disease
has resulted in lobotomizing a
section of the brain of Jewish
intellectuals, rabbis, journalists
and other thought-leaders
I write this in the spirit of
kindness now that I know bow to

paragraph 9 of the Florida
Statutes, for instance, which the
American Civil Liberties Union is
challenging in the Fifth Circuit
Court of Appeals. It deals with
the duties of teachers, among
which are instructions to "in-
culcate, by precept and example,
the principles of truth, honesty
and patriotism and the practice
of every Christian virtue."
(Italics mine.)
THAT LITTLE bit was tried
on one of my intellectual friends,
a poet who fights censorship and
believes, he tells me. in the First
Amendment. (But not for Nazis.)
"Nothing wrong with
Christian virtue," he replies
There are some good things in
Christian virtue." Of course

Bryants1 "Of course not." The
Gospel According to Mark, or
Matthew? "Well, if they pick the

says, as recently quoted in the

bill to permit silent meditation in

the Jewish community in this

against prayer because I think
it is something that needed
badly but because it
sometimes offends us in the way
k is done, and it often leads to the
of the kids"
However, the Herald reports.
Rabbi Landau strongly favors a
time of silent meditation and
some other consideration of
religion in the public schools.
In joining those who believe
that Bible reading and prayer in
the public schools will bring back
the good ol' days when everyone,
or nearly everyone, was made
pure and uplifted by listening to
the Protestant Bible and saying
' Our father which art in heaven
.... this ever-growing number
of lobotomized Jews has had
taken from their minds the
history of the Jewish experience
in America.
The many court battles to
make the First Amendment live
for minority rights are forgotten.
They have become part of the
great American hoax which
reveals that 80 percent, according
to the polls, favor prayer in the
public schools. Yet fewer than
one-third of American Jews make
proviBions for prayer or religious
education m their homes or
synagogues (16 percent ac-
cording to Gallup, worship
regularly). K
It was once suggested by a
British philosopher that "The
creed of the English is that there
is no God and that it wkw to
pray to him from time to time."

Problems of Elderly in Kibbutzim United Way of Broward To
Editor's Sote:'This is another
in the series of monthly reviews
of stories and features in the
Hebrew press of Israel reporting
developments on the economic,
political and human scene both
there and in other places around
the world. The materials deal in
the main with the process of
immigrant absorption and the
quality of life in Israel. The series
is prepared by the national UJA.
Elderly in Kibbutzim
A Davar correspondent reports
on the problems of the elderly in
the kibbutzim. The Council of
Social Security's Special Com-
mittee for the Elderly, headed by
attorney Yehudit Nachman.
received a proposal to establish a
special project for improving the
conditions of the elderly in the
kibbutzim and for their social
benefit in general by adjusting
the relationship between the
elderly individual and his en-
vironment. The proposal was
prepared by the Institute for
Kibbutz Research at Haifa
The project includes the theo-
retical tests and study of the
aging process in the kibbutz, as
well as the establishing of several
solutions which were found to be
a success in some of the kib-
butzim. <
THEIR eventual success with
these solutions in other kib-
butzim will be traced in order to
arrive at the proper conclusions
with regard to their future
The process of aging is a
relatively new phenomenon in the
kibbutzim movement, but in
recent years the scope of the
problem increased. It is obvious
that in the kibbutz the objective
conditions are different from
those prevailing in the town and
the city.
For example: the elderly
person in the kibbutz who is him-
self a member, or the father of a
member, generally enjoys full
economic security no matter
whether it is contributing to the
mesheh of the kibbutz or not.
THE ELDERLY in the kib-
butzim are usually given fewer
hours to work and most of the
time k is easy work that they are
given to carry out. Sometimes
they are given regular work, but
only for a few hours in the day.
The members of the kibbutz also
have many opportunities for
adult education and for
developing various hobbies. They
also live, in most cases, together
with the younger generation, etc.
One would assume that the
elderly in the hibbutzim are
satisfied with their condition and
that a high percentage of them
uould have a positive image of
themselves, their usefulness and
productivity But sometimes the
situation is different
Research done in the past and
also stories published in the press
show that many elderly people in
kibbutzim are not too happy with
their condition and feel that their
condition is problematic in
several respects.
Research surveys show that
despite the great advantage of
economic security, most of the
elderly voted for establishing
pension funds. Also, the swit-
ching of jobs, even if it is done for
the purpose of giving the elderly
an easier job, is for various
reasons not satisfactory to them,
in general.
The elderly people were in most
cases successful in developing
new hobbies because they were
educated on the supreme value of
work and when they get less
important work, it creates some
degree of tension and misunder-
standing between them and the
younger generation. This causes
dissatisfaction among the old.
Moreover, such dissatisfaction
can also have a negative influence
on their expectations of the
younger kibbutz members with
regard to their own future.
The research project has there-
fore several objectives:

1. What are the special
characteristics of the process of
aging in kibbutz society in com-
parison with the similar process
in society in general''
2. LIFE in the kibbutz is
different than life in the city and
town in many respects: in the
framework of work; in the free
time: in the family: in political
areas as well as social and eco-
nomic areas.
3. Guidance methods must be
developed in order to prepare the
people who approach the aging
period so that they don't fall
unexpectedly into a new pattern
Changes must be developed in
the employment structure and in
the institutional structure in each
kibbutz and in the whole kibbutz
movement in general.
4. A contribution must be
made in the area of information
about various solutions worked
out in order to handle the elderly
in a special way within the
general society of the kibbutz.
THE PROJECT is based on
field experiments in 10 kib-
butzim. Part of the kibbutzim
will constitute an experimental
group and the other part will con-
stitute a control group. The
kibbutzim will be chosen from all
four main kibbutz movements, in
which at least 25 percent of the
membership reach the age of 55
years or more.
In each kibbutz. 50 members of
the ages 55 and above and 20
members of the ages 40 to 50 will
be interviewed and asked for
their own views about the process
of aging.
The experiments are planned
for two years and the cost of the
project is estimated to be
IL 467.000. The Special Projects
Department of Israel's Social
Security Institute considers the
project about aging in the kib-
butzim as a unique opportunity
to learn a great deal about the
real condition of the elderly in the
THIS particular group of
Israel's population has not been
researched up to now in a proper
manner. The members of the
committee also feel that the
results of this project may offer
many opportunities to learn
about solutions to various prob-
lems of the aging process.
solutions which can also pertly be
used in the case of the elderly in
the towns and cities.
The Committee for the Old
People of the Social Security Of-
fice recommended in February to
approve immediately a sum of
IL 200.000 as its part in covering
the cost of the project. The rest
will be contributed by the Insti-
tute for K ibbutz Research.

Operate from Four Regions
The annual United Way
campaign, kicking off in mid-
September, will take on a new
appearance as the regionalization
process is put into effect.
According to David H. Rush,
1978-79 general campaign
chairman. The United Way
campaign is being brought
together under the auspices of
four regions north, south, west
and central. There are several
reasons behind this process.
"FIRST, it will allow the
United Way to increase
penetration of the now sprawling
county. Second, it will raise the
level of contributions to a larger
percent of potential to meet the
needs for human services. And
last, it will assist in broadening
the base of participation in the
United Way."
Rush said also that he feels
that by bringing the U nited Way
into the various areas a greater
impact will be met regarding
overall awareness of the United
Way and its agencies.
The central area, headed by
George Sullivan, vice president
and general manager of Florida
Power and Light Co., en-
compasses Fort Lauderdale,
Oakland Park and Wilton
Manors. The south area, coor-
dinated by State Representative
Charles Boyd. comprises
Hallandale. Hollywood. Dania.
Cooper City. Pembroke Pines and
regional vice president of
American Express Co., is
heading the western area of the
county which includes Davie.

Lauderdale Lakes, Tamarac.
North Lauderdale, Margate and
Coral Springs. The north area,
consisting of Lauderdale-by-the-
Sea. Sea Ranch Lakes. Pomnann
Beach. Coconut Creek and
Deerfield Beach, is being headed
by Paul Basye, senior vice
president of Florida Coast Banks.
According to Rush, all of the
areas have four divisions which
include major groups, govern.
ment. professional and com.
munity. totaling 16 main
divisions in all. The divisioni
should enable more companies to
be approached, with more
volunteer participation resulting
in more results.
This whole regionaluation
process will not only benefit the
United Way but the entire
county as well,'' said Rush It
will allow the volunteers to be
more accessible to the people in
their areas thereby aiding in
identifying problems regarding
social service operationr in the -
We already know that the
need for human services is in-
creasing but we need to know
why and in what areas do the
services need to be upgraded.''

El Fatah, Not PLO, 'Terrorist'
The U.S. government has
publicly characterized El Fatah,
the largest group within the
Palestine Liberation
Organization as "terrorist" and
has come closer than ever before
to identifying its leader, Yaasir
Arafat, as a terrorist.
The American position was
announced by the State
Department's chief spokesman,
Hodding Carter, in the aftermath
of the terrorist bombing of the
Mahane Yehuda market in
Jerusalem for which El Fatah
claimed responsibility.
CARTER SAID his statement
"represents the Administration's
view on the question of the PLO
and terrorism" and "clearly
supersedes any other statements
that have been made."
The U.S., however, continues
to refrain from describing the
PLO as a whole as a terrorist
organization and maintains its
policy of being prepared to
communicate with the PLO when
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lazawitz

Karen, to Mr. Ian Frank of

The bride was escorted by her
parents. Mrs. Luceil Caplen,

Plantation served as best man.
Mrs. Frank is an art teacher in

The issue of the PLO came to
the fore last week when Alfred L.
Atherton, President barter's
Ambassador-at-Large to the
Middle East informed a Senate
Foreign Relations Committee
subcommittee that the U.S. has
not had "the occasion to
characterize" the PLO as
"terrorist or non-terrorist" but
that it was regarded as an
"umbrella organization" com-
posed of diverse elements.
what prompted the U.S. to make
its most far-reaching con-
demnation of El Fatah. It waa
understood from State Depar-
tment sources that Vice
President Walter Mondale's visit
to Israel and the Carter
Administration's desire to repair
its relations with Israel and the
American Jewish community
were major factors in the con-
dem nation.
Meanwhile, legislation aimed
at fighting international
terrorism, such as the PLO
engages in, is pending in both
houses of Congress. The Carter
Administration is backing a
measure introduced by Sen.
Abraham Ribicoff (D., Conn.)
that would empower the
President to impose sanctions
against countries identified as
aiding and abetting terrorism.
In the House, Rep. Robert K.
Dornan (R., Calif.) has proposed
a three-point measure to curb
terrorists and their supporters in
the U.S. It would exclude ad-
mission to this country of any
alien affiliated with a terrorist
organization and direct the
Attorney General to investigate
the activities of any person
registered as a foreign agent of a
terrorist organization.
The Dornan bill has more than
30 backers from both parties but

to develop her present and future
role in society.
IT MAY have all started in
1914, as a handful of "young
women met at Kibbutz Merhavia,
to form the first women's
organization in the country.
Moetzet Hapoalot, or the Council
for Working Women was a
revolutionary organization in its
time, calling for equality of the
In those days of desert
cultivation and swamp clearance,
a pioneer was a pioneer, everyone
struggled, and sex was not such
an issue. Later, in wartime
Europe, no one had time to
quibble about traditional sexual
roles either.
. "At age nineteen, I fought
with the partisans against the
Nazis and no one cared who was a
man or a woman," recalls
Knesset member Chaika
Grossman. "Only your will and
your work counted." Somewhere
along the line, however, things
have changed drastically. Chaika
Grossman herself is forced to
add: "Since 1948, women have
suffered a deplorable setback. We
are indeed the second sex."
the books however. The Israeli
Declaration of Independence
guarantees equality of the sexes
and prohibits discrimination due
to sex. Prime Minister David
Ben-Gurion was one of the
moving spirits behind these
clauses. He immediately ap-
pointed Golda Meir as a minister
in his cabinet, and the future
looked bright for Israeli women.
As the religious parties grew in
strength in Israel, they were
concerned with promoting
legislation. guaranteeing the
rights of women as they saw
them, according to religious law
or Halacha. Military service for
women was declared immoral,
and religious girls could receive
IN THE meantime, the young
country was growing fast, ab-
sorbing hundreds of thousands of
immigrants in its early years.
The majority were from near-
Eastern countries, and in those
areas, women's emancipation was
just beginning.
Most Oriental Jewish women
had never thought of seeking
employment outside of the home,
and in their new country, they
did not have the skills or eduction
to do so.
Financial pressures and
enlightenment soon changed this,
and today, women occupy about
one-third of the work force in
Israel. Even though the number
of female doctors, dentists, and
engineers that came from the
Communist countries is
relatively high, working women
are basically categorized in
clerical work, teaching or nur-
FRIGHTENING statistics
have been recently re-
vealed by the Israeli Com-
mission on the Status of Women.
Figures show that half of the
women in Israel have not
completed an elementary
education, and a staggering
majority have had little more
than three years of schooling.
This Commission, appointed
by former Prime Minister Yitz-
chak Rabin and led by Knesset
member Or a Namir. also reported
that even those women that have
qualifications earn on the average
80 percent of the salaries of their
male counterparts. This is in
spite of the "equal work, equal
pay" law which is in effect.
The question must be asked
just whose side is the law on? In
Israel, there are two laws which
are to be upheld and contended
with a civil and a religious law.
While the civil law of the state
considers both man and woman
as equal heads of a family and
guardians of their children, the
religious law (which is binding in
matters of marital relations)
considers the husband head of
the family and the responsible
the books provide men with other
rights which are practically
denied to women such as the
right to initiate divorce
proceedings, give testimonies in
some courts or perform central
rituals in synagogues.
According to the Commission's
report, the Israel Defense Forces
do not offer women too many
privileges either. Of 700 available
jobs in the army, only 200 are
open to women, and 50-60 percent
of female soldiers are clerks.
Even kibbutzim, the
agricultural settlements which
once liberated women with their
pioneering socialistic ideas, now
admit that 80 percent of their
work in production is done by
their male members. Perhaps by
choice, women have been
stratified into certain types of
service branches or work on these
cooperative agricultural set-
Somewhere in the realm of
Israeli society, women are losing
their hold on their claim to
equality. They may be slipping of
their own accord, but they are
also being pushed. In truth,
women cannot afford to relax for
a moment. Public awareness
must be created informing the
woman of the laws that are on the
statute book to protect them.
Education is the first and
foremost priority.
Women as well as men should
be aware of the rights provided
by law, and work to exercise
these rights. After all. the
promosed land was given to both
men and women and Israel's
promises should apply to its
inhabitants of both sexes.

Friday. July 2l
Javits Offers His Own Peace Plan
Students Qualify in Bible Contej
The "best chance" to advance the
Middle East peace process now
would be a "third Sinai
disengagement agreement"
between Israel and Egypt, ac-
cording to the senior Senator
from New York. Republican
Jacob K. Javits.
An Egyptian-Israeli agreement
on the Sinai would be a limited
achievement, but that is all you
can do now." Javits said. "It's
not a peace agreement, but there
is no use pretending one is
possible. If you pretend it is you
will get nothing but retrogression
which is not good for the Middle
East or the United States," he
however, that Egypt and Israel
should renew their joint political
committee talks in Jerusalem
from the point where they broke
off last January when President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt unex-
pectedly called his delegation
The Senator, who has spoken
critically recently of some aspects
of Israeli policy, believes that the
Carter Administration should
have had a "stronger" reaction to
Egypt's "sudden departure from J
Jerusalem." '
Javits said that "instead of !
trying to invent new ideas and
meetings and new techniques for
negotiations," Israel and Egypt
should resort to traditional in-
ternational discussions on the
ministerial level. He suggested as
a first step that Israeli Defense
Minister Eaar Weizman and
Egypt's Minister of War
Mohammed Gamassy should act
toward "tranquilizing Israel's
w.stern front and opening the
door with Jordan and others on
the eastern front."
HE POINTED out that
Gamassy and Weizman had been
i lose to agreement on security
problems in the Sinai when the
joint military committee talks in
Cairo were suspended following
the break-off of the political talks
in Jerusalem.
Discussing the Carter
Administration's frequent
criticism of Israeli government
policies and its support, or
silence, on pronouncements by
Arab governments, Javits said.
"The White house believes
wrongly in my view that it has
to have the Arabs on its side:
that the Israelis have to settle,
but the Arabs don't have to. and
they have to be wooed because I
they have land, population and
wealth. But the Arab world is in
turmoil: all the Arab kings sit on '
shaky thrones." Javits said.
The Senator will be the ranking
Republican member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee in
January' with the retirement of
Sen. Clifford Case of New Jersey,
who was defeated in his party's
primary elections last month.
HE URGED that the Middle
East be handled in a "pragmatic
way" and on a "case-by-case"
basis rather than on "generalized
principles." He observed that on
the West Bank, for example,
"abstractions about self-
determination are not going to be
nearly as important as security
positions, what happens to the
Jewish settlements, the ad-
ministration of the area, internal
and external immigration and the
area of economics."
He said that the U.S.
government's refusal to
characterize the Palestine
Liberation Organization as
terrorist is, presumable, to keep
its "lines open with everyone in
the Arab world."

He said "the Carter
Administration believes you have
got to win the Arabs to peace and
that the Israelis need peace and
have to go along."
He agreed that it would be
embarrassing for the U.S. to label
the PLO "terrorist" when Saudi
Arabia, described by President
Carter as among "our staunchest
friends," supports that group

East peace negotiations, he said
that his criteria for judging
policy was "is it working?" In his
opinion, U.S. policy is not in-
creasing the chance for peace.
He reminded the group that
the infusion of arms has led to a
feeling in Israel that its military
position was now more precarious
and that it was thus less willing
to modify its political /
diplomatic stance. On the other
hand, the Arabs had little in-
ducement to make peace since
they seemed to be getting more
and more by not making peace.
Concerning the "Peace Now"
movement. Sen. Stone quoted
Chaim Weizmann who said that
"he was a president of two
million presidents." The Senator
felt that there was no single
approach to the peace question
and while debate was appropriate
and necessary, the greater need
was to strengthen support of
SEN. Paul Sarbanes of
Maryland, one of the leaders in
the fight against the ad-
ministration's arms package,
discussed the necessity of "ethnic
politics" and the need for
Americans with concerns and
interests in other countries to
raise issues in regard to United
States policy in those areas.
He said he felt strongly that
this was a critical need and that
U.S. foreign policy was more
intelligent and moral when there
were Americans taking part in
discussing the issues. He
suggested that some of the
country's most unsuccessful
foreign policy decisions (he cited
Chile and Viet Nam! stemmed
from the fact that few American
citizens took part in the debate.
He said he felt that special in-
terest groups tended to be
extremely cautious" in
presenting their points of view
and that such presentations
should be encouraged and
Mark Talisman, director of the
CJF Washington Action Office,
concluded the luncheon by
pointing out the necessity of
letting members of Congress and
the administration know how the
group felt about issues as they
arose. He emphasized that "when
there is silence, it makes a
thunderous sound. It implies
AFTER lunch, one group went
to the White House while the
second group went to the State
7100 W
Department. At the White
House, the group was briefed by
Dr. Joyce Star, associate special
assistant, office of the Counsel to
the President, and Walter Smith,
director for Israel and Arab-
Israel Affairs, State Department.
Dr. Star discussed human rights
issue and Smith spoke on Middle
East policies as implemented by
the administration.
The briefing at the State
Department was presented by
Charles Marthinsen. director of
Egyptian Affairs, who dealt with
foreign policy issues particularly
as related to Egyptian-Israel
Clifford Brody. Human Rights
Officer for Europe in the office of
the Assistant Secretary for

an up-date on the ad-

general question of human rights
and their bearing on specific
individuals, notably Soviet
dissidents, refuseniks and others.
An informal question and answer

THE GROUP returned to the
hotel for a final session headed by
Phyllis Tishman of New York,
vice chairman. The discussion
focused on ways in which in-
dividual communities could carry
out a similar day for their own
members. Three communities
described their own recent
missions. Each one had used the
basic model which had been
experienced that day. but each
group had individual differences.
Each community used the
visits to upgrade its Women's
Division campaign. A minimum

Horwitz Endowment Fund
To Provide Scholarships
A "Louis D. Horwitz
Scholarship Endowment Fund"
honoring the memory of the
former director-general of the
Joint Distribution Committee
has been established by the JDC
at the Paul Baerwald School of
Social Work in the Hebrew
University, it has been an-
nounced by Donald M. Robinson,
JDC President.
The income from the en-
dowment fund of $25,000 will
provide five scholarships and
fellowships during the first year
for advanced studies in com-
munity planning, community
center work and community
development, Robinson said.
Sufficient funds are expected to
provide a similar number of
scholarships and fellowships in
ensuing years, he added.
"THE PROGRAM is a fitting
tribute to the memory of a man
who devoted virtually his entire
adult life to the service of his
people," Robinson said. "Even in
his retirement he felt impelled to
put his knowledge and expertise
at work in Israel in an area that
needed it so desperately: com-
munity planning, the utilization
of community centers as a focal
point for social welfare and
educational services, and the
development of community
services, especially in un-
derprivileged areas."
The endowment fund was
initiated by the board of directors
at its semiannual meeting in New
York this spring. Close to 100
board members from around the
country attended the two-day
conference reviewing programs
and taking action on program
and budget items.

Israel on Jan. 4, joined the JDC '

staff in 1946 in Italy and became
country director the following
year. In Italy he conducted
health and welfare services for
tens of thousands of Jewish
displaced persons and helped
them make their way to Israel
and to other countries.
WHEN THE JDC launched
widespread health and welfare
programs in North Africa in
1949-50, Mr. Horwitz was
assigned to Tunisia as country
director. In 1953 he was
reassigned to Paris as director of
the Department of Immigration.
The following year, when the
department was merged into the
newly created United Hias
Service, he was appointed HIAS
director for Europe and North
In 1957 he rejoined the JDC
staff as director for Israel and for
the next five years his major
responsibility was building and
expanding the JDC Malben
program in behalf of aged ill and
handicapped newcomers to Israel.
He served for a time as director
of Overseas Studies and Services
for the Council of Jewish
Federations and was Israel
Consultant on Absorption for the
Jewish Agency. He returned to
the JDC staff as director-general
in 1967 and supervised the
worldwide activities of the JDC
until his retirement in 1975.
Following his retirement, Mr.
Horwitz emigrated to Israel and
served as a dollar-a-year con-
sultant to Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem until his death.

Jewish Leaders Air Problems
Representatives of a wide range
of Jewish organizations met with
officials of the New York City
Police Department in which was
termed an unprecedented effort
by the police officials and the
Jewish community leaders to
educate each other about their
special problems and to explore
areas of mutual concern.
The meeting, held at Police
Headquarters, was called the
first of its kind in the city's
history by the Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council of New
York. Two JCRC committees -
one on governmental relations
and one on police liaison
coordinated the meeting, with the
help of Malcolm Hoenlein, JCRC
executive director.

organizational capacities past or
present, should refrain from
activity in behalf of or against
any candidate for any political
office. When Jewish leaders use
their organizational identity for
partisan political purposes, they
may leave the impression that
the organizations with which
they are affiliated are committed
to a political party or candidate.
(See footnote 1.)
"Jewish organizations
federations, welfare funds,
councils, or general membership
bodies should refrain from any
activity in behalf of or in op-
position to any candidate for any
political office.
"SUCH proscribed activity
includes, among other things, the
making of awards or citations to,
or the holding of public functions
in honor of, a political candidate
during or immediately prior to a
campaign for public office; the
use of the organization's mailing
list (or loan thereof) in behalf of a
political candidate; the use of its
facilities, staff, letterhead or fund
raising machinery for such
purposes. I See footnote 2.1
"Neither Jewish leaders nor
Jewish organizations are
restricted by the foregoing
guidelines from sneaking and
acting on public issues of concern
to the Jewish community, even
when such conduct may be in-
terpreted as approval or criticism
of positions of candidates for
political office.
"It is an obligation of Jewish
individuals and organizations as
well as it is an obligation of all
Americans to be fully involved in
the American political process.
This obligation is consistent with
our civic responsibility and the
historic value that the Jewish
community places upon the
democratic system. We suggest
that Jewish organizations and
citizens become fully educated
about the issues and the can-
didates and their opinions.
"IT IS appropriate that
organizations interview, and/or
invite as platform guests, all
candidates for a given office and
spokespeople for opposing views
on issues, remembering always to
act impartially."
(1) These Guidelines were
adopted originally at the 1971
Plenary Session of the National
Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council and have since
been adopted by communities
throughout the nation.

person of the police liaison
committee, said the conference
developed from a series of recent
discussions between the liaison
committee and police officials
dealing with crime in Jewish
neighborhoods, declining Jewish
representation on the city police
force and related issues.
Tishman said that while more
police officers should be made
aware of the religious and
cultural needs of various Jewish .
groups, she had found police
department supervisors to be
"extraordinarily sensitive and
responsive" to those needs.
She explained that Jewish
leaders are concerned about the
possibilities of "unrest" this
summer, particularly in mixed
neighborhoods, and about a
growing number of anti-Semitic
incidents. Crime against elderly
Jews is also a continuing concern
of the Jewish community, she
POLICE Commissioner Robert
J. McGuire said close links had
been established between the
police and community residents
in recent years and that police
precincts have assumed greater
responsibility for ensuring the
security of their neighborhoods
and that more uniformed
policemen now patrol residential
McGuire also said that "crime
rates against the elderly haye
been reduced drastically
although they remain at an in-
tolerable level." He said this
"decline'' was due to the
vigilance of the department's new
Senior Citizens Anti-Crime units

In response to questions.
McGuire said he appreciated the
impact which synagogue van-
dalism has upon the Jewish
community. He argued that such
incidents could not be prevented
because they were "sporadic."
He stressed the need to prosecutf
those responsible for these
'' destructive acts.
HE PLEDGED the continuing
dedication of the Police
Department to meeting the needs
of New York City Jews. He
asked, in return, support from
the Jewish community in what he
called "very delicate times in the
City of New York."
