I suppose you could say I was
holding the reins, but I did that
several years ago down here
without driving the horse. That's
because there was no place to
go," Calig said. "Right now, the
Federation wagon's moving and
we're going places."
Calig noted that UJA funds
were still coming in on the 1977-
78 campaign, which drew for-
mally to a dose on June 30.
"Well, we've kept the books open
and our total for this past year's
drive now amounts to $2,222,000
and that's a record."
THE MONIES now coming in,
Calig explained, are in response
to appeals made to persons who
had given in the past but were
still unrecorded as contributors
to the 1977-78 campaign. "Their
response has been gratifying and
we're appreciative of it," Calig
declared. "There isn't a day that
doesn't bring in money, and
that's good for Israel and for our
local humanitarian programs as
well," he added.
The acting director he's in
place of Irving L. Geisser, the
former director, who resigned
effective the end of June noted
also that the Federation is in the
process of organizing a 1978-79
UJA Mission to Israel. The
mission chairman. Calig an-
nounced, is Milton Keiner, the
Federation's second vice
president. A preliminary
organization meeting took place
July 26. with mission dates set
tentatively for Nov. 26 through
Dec. 6. Last fall's Fort Lauder-
dale mission to Israel was made
up of over 70 men and women.
Calig noted that Keiner is
aiming for a mission of "equal
force and strength." Parti-
cipation, he said, would be on the
basis of a minimum gift to the
UJA campaign of $1,500 for a
couple (S 1,200 for the husband,
$300 for the wife) and $1,200 for
an unattached person. The
mission, Calig added, would be in
Israel as a guest of the Govern-
ment and the Jewish Agency.
The Agency is a main beneficiary
of funds raised through the Fed-
eration's UJA campaign.
CALIG pointed out that the
UJA campaign for 1978-79 would
get under way formally with the
mission's return to Fort Lauder-
dale, probably in early December.
Between now and then, he said,
the field for fund-raising would be
held by the Jewish Community
Center in its effort to bring
together $2 million to cover the
cost of purchasing the Florida
Air Academy in Plantation as the
JCC's new home, and renovating
it starting next June prior to
moving in. The JCC fund cam-
paign is headed by Mrs. Louis L.

being given five years in which to

Shun War Criminal's Plea
AMSTERDAM The European Commission
for Human Rights in Strassbourg has dismissed the appeal by
Joseph Kotaella. one of the last three German war criminals
still imprisoned in Holland, to the government of The Nether-
lands. Kotaella and his lawyer had claimed that he should be
released in view of the European Treaty on Human Rights and
discriminatory treatment by the Dutch authorities and
"inhuman punishment."
ALL DUTCH war criminals who were originally sentenced
to life imprisonment later had their sentences changed to 20
years imprisonment and have been released years ago.
The European Commission concluded that there is no legal
basis for reducing Kotaella s life sentence. It also observed that
Kotaella had already been pardoned because his original death
sentence was changed into life imprisonment.
THE COMMISSION, on the basis of information received,
also rejected Kotaella's appeal which included the reference to
his ill health.
Though he is partly paralyzed, the Commission felt his
illness is not as grave as Kotaella claimed.

IN A session chaired by
Melvin Dubinsky. chairman of
United Israel Appeal, the
Assembly approved the budget
of $350 million which was pre-
sented by the newly etacUd
treasurer, and later addressed by
Finance Minister Ehrlich. The
delegates from more than 30
nations included 150 nominated
by 49 Jewish Federations in the
US. and designated by the UIA.
They also accepted a sup-
plementary budget of $48 million
for the current year to fund
Project Renewal.
The Assembly adopted a
detailed Project Renewal
program, in response to the
request of Prime Minister Begin,
to help Israel solve its desperate
problems of poor housing and
social distress. A charge was
delivered by Jerold Hoffberger
which demanded the full involve-
ment by world Jewry and those
being helped.
Members met with the
Ministers of the Israel Govern-
ment involved. Chairman of the
M inisterial Committee, former
Deputy Prime Minister Yigal
Yadin. Minister of Housing,

Labor and Social Welfare, Dr.

ransky's sentence, President
Carter, who was in Bonn, West
Germany, said he was saddened
by the news. "We are all sobered
by this reminder that so late in
the 20th century, a person can be
sent to jail simply for asserting
his basic human rights." Carter
He promised that "our voice
will not be stilled" in the struggle
for human rights. However, he
stressed that he will not permit
this to interfere with efforts to
reach an agreement on nuclear
weapons limitations with the
Soviet Union.
But Sharansky's wife, Avital,
who arrived in Washington
Friday from Geneva where she
had met with Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance, asserted: "It's not
enough that the United States
speak out. It's time we carry out
some action." Mrs. Sharansky
learned of her husband's sentence
only after she got off the plane in
Washington. She wept briefly.
"Thirteen years is much too
much to spend," she said, "15
days is too much for a person who
is not guilty of anything."
THERE WERE reports from
Administration sources with
Carter in West Germany that the
U.S. is considering trading two
Soviet diplomats arrested in New
Jersey as suspected spies for
Sharansky and possibly others.

When asked about her reaction
to this during a television ap-
pearance Friday night on the
Public Broadcasting System's
"MacNeil / Lehrer Report,"
Mrs. Sharansky was both am-
bivalent and disturbed.
She said she feared that it
might be used by the Soviets as
proof that her husband was a spy
for the CIA. which she stressed
he was not. At the same time, she
said she would welcome any
move that might free her
husband and allow him to join
her in Israel.
Mrs. Sharansky said she had
<-ome to the U.S. to seek help
both from the government and
the American people.
You have come to a place
where you can find help." she was
told by Sen. Alan Cranston (D.,
Calif.), who also appeared on the
scheduled to hold a press con-
ference at the Capitol Tuesday
and then meet with Vice Presi-
dent Walter Mondale. While in
Europe, she spoke by telephone
with Mrs. Rosalynn Carter, the
President's wife, and his mother.
Mrs. Lillian Carter, both of whom
promised help for her husband.
The first direct reaction to the
Sharansky sentencing came from
New York University whose
president. John Sawhill, an-
nounced, that the university was
cancelling the upcoming visits by
three Russian scientists two of
them for as long as 10 months
to NYU's Courant Institute of
Mathematical Science.
He has also asked the faculty
to postpone all other scholastic or
applied research programs with
the USSR and has urged other
universities and faculties in the
U.S. to do the same thing until
the Soviet Union recognizes "just
human rights under Soviet and
international law. as well as the
right of free emigration.
groups was especially strong.
Some 50 members of the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry
(SSSJ), carrying suitcases with
warm clothing in front of the
Soviet Aeroflot airline in mid-
town Manhattan Friday, offered
themselves as "hostages" in
place of Sharansky. The youths
said there offer was made with
deliberate thought and utmost
sincerity to spare an innocent
man 13 years of hell, and to allow
him to rejoin his wife in Israel."
Aeroflot personnel called the
police, who rushed a phalanx of
officers to the scene, blocking the
doors. When the SSSJ phoned,
an Aeroflot representative
shouted that the matter was an
internal affair" and slammed
the phone down. The students
promised to return.
The sentence against
Sharansky was also denounced as
savage" by the World Jewish
Congress, National Jewish Com
munity Relations Advisory
Council, the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith and the
American Jewish Committee.

Concern Mounts for Fate
Of Helsinki Monitors
Soviet treatment of the 20 im-
prisoned or exiled Helsinki
monitors in the Soviet Union and
the implications of that treat-
ment on Soviet American
relations is arousing increasingly
broad concern in the Congress.
The Commission on Security
and Cooperation in Europe, made
up of congressional members and
administration officials to
examine the results of the
Helsinki Agreement, is focusing
particular attention" on
Anatoly Sharansky and
Alexander Ginzburg. and another
group member. Maria Slepak

mission, and Mrs. Alexander
Solzhenitsyn. wife of the exiled
Nobel Prize winning author, are
among those who have testified
in a session in the House of Rep-
resentatives. She is a founding
member of the Alexander Ginz-
burg Defense Committee.
Meanwhile. Rep. Robert F.
Drinan (D., Mass.), chairman of
the International Commitee for
the Release of Anatoly
Sharansky, said, "I know from
my personal association" with
Sharansky "that he is an honest
individual whose sole crime' is
his insistence on monitoring the
compliance of the Soviet Union
with the provisions of the 1975
Helsinki Agreement."
Drinan said the trial of
Sharansky "is the culmination of
a series of efforts by the Soviet
government to imprison or other-
wise silence all of the leaders of
the movement for freedom of
emigration for Soviet Jews. "
Pointing to the treason charge
against Sharansky and the
timing of his trial to coincide with
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance's
negotiations with Foreign Min-
ister Andrei Gromyko on nuclear
arms safeguards, Drinan said,
"The decision to place Sharansky
on trial must be seen as part of a
calculated effort by the Soviet
Union to demonstrate to the
United States that the USSR is
immune to criticism of human
rights violations. The Soviet
authorities hope in this way to
discourage further criticism."

Sen. Alan Cranston ID., Calif I
disclosed the text of a letter sent
June 26 by 43 senators to Soviet
leader Leonid Brezhnev asking
him to commute the sentences of
Vladimir Slepak and Ida Nudel
and to permit them to emigrate.
The senators noted that in
secret trials Slepak and Nudel
have been sentenced to five and
four years of exile within the
Soviet Union, respectively, on
charges "stemming from a public
demonstration of their commit-
ment to emigrate to Israel to join
their loved ones. We have dif-
ficulty understanding why their
actions warrant punishments,"

A Bum Decision
Feodore Fedorenko has been adjudged free to retain
his American citizenship. The ruling by Federal Judge
Norman C. Roettger, Jr., amounts to a flagrant mis-
carriage of justice. If ever there was a bum decision, this is
Fedorenko was charged with failing to acknowledge
that he was a Nazi guard at the Treblinka death camp. He
was not on trial as a Nazi war criminal. He was on trial for
something almost as bad for securing his American
citizenship under false pretenses, as a man guilty of moral
Had he admitted to being a Nazi guard when he
applied for an American visa under the Displaced Persons
Act of 1946, he would have been denied admission.
Had he admitted to serving as a guard at Treblinka
when he applied for United States citizenship, it would
never have been granted to him.
Has Fedorenko ever admitted that he was a guard in
the Treblinka death camp? Yes, he admitted it on the
witness stand. He told the court that he was really a
Russian prisoner of war who had been forced to do guard
duty by the Nazis. Why didn"t he admit to this when he
applied for citizenship? Why did it take him over 20 years
to admit it? What was he hiding?
He was hiding what the witnesses testified to that
he mistreated, flogged and shot Jews who were placed in
his charge.
The judge's ruling flies in the face of the facts, flies in
the face of the eyewitness testimony given by survivors of
Treblinka who were brought to the Fort Lauderdale court-
house from Israel by the federal governments and it
flies in the face of Fedorenko's own admission that he was
a death camp guard in the pay of the Nazis.
The judge's ruling is an outrage. Judge Roettger was
called to account by The Jewish Floridian in this editorial
column on June 23 and The Miami Herald several days
earlier for what we both agreed was his "unjudicial
conduct-' during the course of the trial. He was openly
sympathetic to Fedorenko and just as openly hostile to
the prosecution witnesses brought from Israel.
A television newsman who sat through the entire trial
told us that it was apparent the judge thought the Israeli
witnesses "came on too strong." Imagine that! How
should they have come on, having survived that piece of
holocaust and having lost members of their own families
often before their very eyes? Should they have come on
meekly softly in whispers as they faced a man
who was in the pay of and in league with their deadly
We call upon the Justice Department to appeal the
judge's decision.
We feel confident that a higher court will either order
a new trial or reverse Judge Roettger's decision. We
believe further that the judge surely merits the severest
censure for his flagrant indiscretions. Finally, because we
believe in the basic fairness of American judicial pro-
cedures in the system of appeal and review we
believe that this awful miscarriage of justice will be
corrected. Justice will prevail.
A Rotten Rap
The questions have been coming in thick and fast as
to what the average person can do to protest the Soviet
judicial condemnation of Anatoly Sharansky and
Alexander Ginzburg. There's plenty to do, as follows:
Write to President Carter and Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance encouraging their outspoken support for
human rights in the Soviet Union.
Send a telegram to the Soviet Ambassador in
Washington Anatoly Dobrynin condemning the
sentencing of Sharansky and Ginzburg and urging their
immediate freedom. (Send a Western Union Mailgram;
it's fast and cheap.)
Send a letter to your favorite newspaper, another to
the radio and TV stations you listen to regularly, urging
them to concentrate on these issues.
Request local and national candidates running for
election in your district to make the freedom of Soviet
Jewry a part of their campaigns and a part of their
work in county, state and the federal legislatures.
Support the heroic struggle of the Jewish refuse-
niks Sharansky, Ginzburg, Slepak, Nudel, et al
through strong participation in and giving to the Fort
Lauderdale UJA campaign.
Fascell Rights Talks on Target
Dante Fascell made in the House
the other week bring me back to a
spectre that haunts me like the
spectre Marx produced for all ot
Europe to grapple with.
My own is in the Manifesto,
too. and it has to do with the
Marxist doctrine that the
bourgeois is so dead set on profit
under any conditions that he will
gladly sell the weapons of his
ultimate destruction to anybody
who wants to buy them in-
cluding, of course, his most
implacable enemies.
THE Manifesto is a sen-
timental document that fuses
poetry with history. The result is
neither but a mere polemic
except in the Marxist view of the
bourgeois penchant for suicide at
an attractive price.
This, as 1 say. is the spectre
that haunts me because of the
brilliance of its accuracy and
because of the depressing clarity
of the Marxist measurement of
our middle class moral values.
They are as shallow as the
Soviets' own. They are shallow
almost beyond redemption

Manifesto is a bunch of bilious
bull is made clear in Rep.
Fascell's remarks to which I
referred here at the beginning.
WE HAVE only to recognize
that the Soviets. as a
theoretically Marxist state
harboring the ultimate
proletarian paradise, are in fact a
harsh, oppressive dictatorship
with absolutely no sense of honor
for their commitments in this
case, their commitments under
the Helsinki Final Act.
Beyond the trials of the
dissidents to demonstrate the
point, there is the case of Harold
Piper, of the Baltimore Sun. and
Craig Whitney, of the Mm York
Times Both men. according to
Fascell. "have now joined the
roster of American journalists
who over the past two years have
been subject to intensified
harassment by the Soviet
authorities because of Soviet
displeasure over their contacts
with and reports about human
rights activists."
In their "alarming tactic of
filing a defamation suit in a
Soviet court against the two
correspondents for articles they
had written in American
newspapers." declared Fascell.
and in initiating the absurd civil
Reds Renege
On Promise
Soviet authorities reneged on
their promise to Anatoly
Sharansky's father. Boris, and
brother. Leonid, that they could
visit him at Lefortovo prison
before he is taken away to begin
serving a three-year prison term
to be followed by 10 years in a
"strict regime" labor camp, the

Jewry (SSSJl reported.
suit against Piper and
Whitney, the Soviet authorities
have again demonstrated the
disdain in which they hold the
pledges they signed in the
Helsinki Final Act."
THIS MAKES a mockery of
the Final Act's reaffirmation
that the legitimate pursuit of
their professional activity will
neither render journalists liable
to expulsion nor otherwise
penalize them." and Fascell is
right to point out that now
foreign journalists in Moscow
must live with the constant fear
of arbitrary reprisals against
them "
And so. what can the Soviet
signature mean to the Final Act's
pledge to "increase the op-
portunities for journalists of the
participating States to com-
municate personally with their
source"? Obviously, it can mean
nothing no more than the
Soviets' failure to temper their
treatment of dissidents according
to the principles of the Helsinki
Accord governing human rights,
which they also signed.
Reckoned in these terms, there
is an heroic ring to Fascell's
observation that "A society
which closes itself to inquiry from
the outside says to the world that
it fears impartial scrutiny and is
not fit to take part in the global
search for a stable peace.
BUT IF Fascell is right, surely
neither he nor any of us should be
surprised by the Soviets'
betrayal of their word, par-
ticularly because our own op-
portunism makes us no less
guilty of inconsistency. The fact
is that the Soviets are aa
determined that their political
order should triumph and prevail
over us as we are to make
profitable deals with them. In
this, neither side has an edge on

What we must come to un-
derstand is that the struggle
between us and the Kremlin is
strangely semantic Both sides
talk about "democracy."
"freedom." "human rights" and
the like. But each side means
something altogether different in
using these terms
Rep. Fascell is correct to be
angered that the Soviet suits
against Piper and Whitney
showed their disdain for Helsinki,
and we must join him in ex-
pressing our anger, too. much as
we have done in the violations
attending the Sharansky-
Ginzburg trials.
BUT WE must also come to
understand that our struggle
with the Russians is like a
football game being played by
two sets of rules and with two
sets of umpires, each using the
same language but with different

pragmatism in the Russians that

If we have reallv had enough of
